Matariki, the Maori name for the star cluster Pleiades, is a significant time in Aotearoa, marking the start of the traditional Maori New Year, first observed by the rise of Matariki in the last few days of May each year and the New Year confirmed as the first new Moon is sighted in June. Bright stars are considered to be a sign of a warmth and as a good harvest and resulting prosperity. Matariki is also an important time for families to reflect of those past and on future success.
