The early morning of January 22, 2019, look eastward or in the general direction of sunrise to see the conjunction of the planets Venus and Jupiter in the predawn/dawn sky.
At conjunction, these two brilliant worlds shine north and south of one another on the sky’s dome, with Jupiter passing 2.5 degrees south of Venus.
You simply can’t miss these two brilliant beauties, because Venus and Jupiter rank as the 3rd-brightest and 4th-brightest celestial bodies, respectively, after the sun and moon.
After the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on January 22, 2019, watch for Jupiter to climb upward and for Venus to sink downward in the morning sky.
You can’t mistake Venus for Jupiter, or vice versa, because Venus is by far the brighter of these two brilliant worlds.
Conjunctions of Venus and Jupiter are quite stunning because these two worlds reign as the two most brilliant star like points of light in the heavens.
Generally, a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter happens happens once a year. But this year, in 2019, we actually have two of them. Venus and Jupiter will meet up for another fine conjunction in the evening sky on November 24, 2019.
Amazingly enough, it looks as though very similar Venus-Jupiter conjunctions recur in periods of about 24 years plus one week.
Looking backward and forward, we find this series of Venus/Jupiter conjunctions taking place on nearly the same spot upon the zodiac (near the star Antares), with Jupiter passing to the south of Venus.
What’s more, these Venus/Jupiter conjunctions on January 14, 1995; January 22, 2019 and January 29, 2043, find Venus near its greatest elongation from the rising sun at each of these conjunctions.
In western astrology, Jupiter generally is a masculine sign, A sign for kings, world leaders and dominant forces.
Venus is a feminine symbol. Also symbolizing love, wealth, fertility or growth and the arts.
Both of these planets in conjunction most obvious interpretation is that of a wedding, a union or a deal.
With this planetary cross taking place directly after a Super Blood Moon omen, and these planets being best sighted just before sunrise in the east could point to the birth of a new grand deal, or treaty in the near future and on a massive worldly scale.
Possibly a sign of a Israel and Palestine Agreement or the union of unlikely players in the Middle East.
