The Rare Multi-Planet Parade of 2024

The Rare Multi-Planet Parade of 2024

Between Eclipses, Solar Flares bringing the Northern Lights to unexpected places, and this month’s six-planet alignment- 2024 has been the year for keeping your eyes on the skies. On June 3, 2024, a rare alignment of six planets was visible in the early morning sky. This rare celestial event, known as a "planet parade,"  included Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune lining up in a spectacular display. From Earth's perspective, a planet parade occurs when multiple planets appear close together in the sky. Although the planets don't form a straight line or complete astrological conjunction, they can be close enough to create a stunning visual spectacle. Astronomoers and Astrologers agree, the times are unusual. 

Jupiter, the planet of Mass and Abundance, is nearly always visible to the naked eye. Due to its recent ingress into Gemini, Jupiter accompanies Mercury, Venus, and the Sun (which we encourage you not to look at) and from Earth’s perspective, appears in an elliptical row. Visual planetary alignments are quite common, however, it’s less common to see five or more planets aligning. 

Astrologically speaking, when three or more planets appear in the same time, it is referred to as a “Stellium”. In Gemini, we can expect new experiences and an influx of personal change that impacts our surroundings. Additionally, the Sun is conjunct Venus, making this week an important juncture for setting intentions, as we experience an increase in personal magnetism. This bodes well for the signs of Gemini, Aries and Taurus in particular. 

If you missed the planetary party, the northern lights or the solar eclipse, don’t freak out. 

These are the upcoming planetary parades of five or more planets:
