Venus And Jupiter Will Both Be Visible This Weekend In Rare Occurrence

I hate to break it to you guys, but Mercury Retrograde ended on November 20th — so we're not going to be able to blame our bad behavior on it till at least some time next year.

When you cry halfway through dinner because your boyfriend took one of your fries without asking, Mercury Retrograde won't be there to save you.

Lucky for us, however, the universe is always cooking up some frickery that'll sway our mood, change our fate, and trigger a wave of blurry Instagram stories of the night sky.

This weekend, both Venus and Jupiter will be visible in the night sky.

We often see Venus, aka "the brightest star in the sky", when we have a clear night, but it isn't often that we get the opportunity to see Venus and Jupiter together.

You have to make sure to set a phone alarm.

According to Yahoo, the best time to see both planets together will be in the early evening on November 24th, around 45 minutes after sunset.

Remember that because of daylight savings time, the sun sets stupid early now, so when I say "evening", I mean around 5:15 PM or so, depending on your timezone.

Though it looks like the planets are closer together, that isn't actually the case.

The phenomenon is called conjunction: "the astronomical term for when planets appear to be close together in the sky, as observed from Earth."

Conjunctions of Venus and Jupiter happen fairly often. The last one was January 2019, though it doesn't look like there will be any conjunctions of the two planets in the year 2020.

Will you be looking out for this rare occurrence this weekend?

As for any personal problems that planetary conjunction may cause, just be thankful we're not dealing with Mercury. I have some issues with her.
