Just in time for a fresh start with the beginning of 2023, every planet in the sky is aligning in formation. The energy of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn is all coming together to a point where they can be observed with the naked eye in the night sky. Events like this are very rare, and the next one isn’t till 2492.
That’s why it’s important to acknowledge its meaning and take advantage of the energy shift for a powerful beginning of the new year. Here’s what that means for you.
The Planet Parade
Astronomers are using the term “planetary parade” as the unofficial scientific term to describe the event of the planets of the Solar System lining up in a row in the same area of the sky above the plane o our Solar System.
The phenomenon can even be observed from earth regardless of visibility conditions. According to preliminary forecasts, such planet parades will take place in 2022, 2040, and 2854. The one in 2022 took place on December 28th, so its energy is still prevalent for us to grasp.
A Spectacular Show
Isn’t it amazing how much of our universe is still unexplored? We try to understand it, but the truth is it holds secrets far beyond anything our human brains could ever grasp. Our linear thinking of time and space doesn’t allow us to fully grasp the scope of the endless universe.
However, events like this planetary alignment give us a glimpse into its perfect synchronicity. “These nights, we can see all the planets of our solar system at a glance, soon after sunset,” astronomer Gianluca Masi explained to Newsweek. “It happens from time to time, but it is always a spectacular sight.”
in Time For The New Year
A lot was happening with the planets as the year 2022 was wrapping up. Since December 24th, the moon had also appeared in the line-up, adding even more to the spectacular site. It was like the universe itself was getting in formation, ready to tackle the beginning of a new year as a unit.
Astronomers were describing what they were seeing through their binoculars as an “entire planetary family,” Perhaps we should be inspired by the planets and take a page out of their book. In 2023, we need to come together as a unit and as a family.
A Very Rare Experience
What makes this extra event special is its rarity. Planetry alignemnts like this arent the norm, and their timing was extra impeccable this year, almost metaphotical. From some perspective, this has not occurred in 18 years.
From an astronomical perspective, it’s important to acknowledge that planetary alignment during a planet parade should not be taken literally. In reality, planets never align in one perfectly straight line, as we see in pictures. That’s because the solar system doesn’t orbit perfectly in the same pane. Each movement is unique, leading to its own chain of special domino effects.
On a smaller scale, human beings are no different. Even if we do the exact same thing twice, it will never be perfectly replicated. After all, we’re reflections of the universe as well, with our complexity being one of its secrets.
A Message From The Universe
So why does this matter for you?
A planetary alignment is a moment in the universe when all the forces of other planets are concentrated on the earth. That’s a lot of powerful energy at your disposal if you harness it properly. Not only can it help you manifest, but it can help you clear your vision on what you should be chasing in the first place. As the planets align, you need to also align with yourself and tune into your body.
Ask yourself what you truly desire and embrace what you already have. Rather than constantly work towards the next thing, accept where you stand in alignment right now, and find gratitude for how amazing it already is. This means embracing different ideas and concepts from those around you too and keeping an open mind. This will all help you continue on the right path.
A Moment Of Reflection
In addition to this, this is a moment of great reflection. It is a time to acknowledge the power of the universe and its unique perfection. Without control by any living being, the universe knows exactly how to function at all times. It moves and orbits in perfect alignment as of holding a mind of its own.
If you stop and think of how amazing nature and the galaxy truly are, you will find it difficult to dwell on the small inconveniences that fall out of place. Suddenly losing your wallet seems so insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Use this alignment as a moment of reflection and appreciation for the cosmic powers. You could also practice meditation to heighten your sense and consciously remain attuned to the wide galaxy around you.
Let The Energy Flow Into You
The energy that resides in other planets can freely flow into you while the planets are aligned, but you have to allow it in. if you remain close-minded, close-hearted or simply closed off, you don’t give it the space to take effect. You can’t cross your arms and expect a hug, for example. But open up your arms, spirit, and heart and be amazed at how much you receive back.
With the energy from these planets, we can become inspired to reach the fullness of our inner abilities and strength. As soon as we do that, our power as a unit will be unmatched. We will easily be able to connect to each other and align, just like the planets do so naturally.
Not Again Till 2492
We have a while before the planets align like this again. In reality, the eight major planets of the Solar System can never come into perfect alignment because of the way they move and orbit.
However, the last time they appeared even in the same part of the sky was over 1,000 years ago, in the year AD 949, and they won’t manage it again until 6 May 2492. So this is truly special. Don’t let the moment go to waste, and embrace the energy shift.
