THE two brightest planets in the night sky, Venus and Jupiter, will dance together overnight Saturday/Sunday 27/28 August, in their closest encounter until 2065. Here's how to see them.
Go outside Saturday about half an hour or 45 minutes after sunset and you will see Venus and Jupiter paired in an extremely close configuration … called an "appulse" by astronomers.
Depending on where you live on Earth, the two planets will almost appear to touch, caught passing each other like two ships in the twilight.
Actually, Venus and Jupiter are in conjunction at least once every year … but rarely so close that they seem to be a double star … which is what as meant as an "appulse" conjunction.
Be sure to take a look ... it will take until 2065 to catch an approach closer than this.
Astrologically, it is good news good news after weeks of tension when Venus aligns in conjunction with Jupiter.
Venus conjunction Jupiter is a textbook alignment for love and good fortune in all sorts of relationships ... romantic relationships and business relationships.
A chance meeting or unexpected phone call or message can open a window of opportunity to make things happen fast.
