A rare configuration of six heavenly bodies – including a new moon – will appear in the skies tonight.
But a spiritual society believes the cosmic event could cause "yet more unrest in our troubled world" – and they're holding special online services to try to combat the disruption with positive energy.
On February 11 the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn will all form a "stellium", meaning a grouping of three or more planets in a sign of the zodiac.
That sign is Aquarius, and members of the Aetherius Society say that's highly significant.
The sect, which has thousands of members all over the world, was founded by taxi driver George King who claims to have met Jesus (an alien) on a mountain in Devon in 1958.

The group places great spiritual meaning on astrological symbols and cosmic configurations, and is planning to hold two special online services on Thursday to mark the Aquarius configuration.
Rev. Chrissie Blaze, a "spiritual teacher" and priest at a Michigan branch of the Society and who will host one of the day's events, has penned a new article explaining what the planetary alignment means for the world.
"This high-octane powerful and intense energy in the sign of Aquarius is calling us to awaken to greater humanitarianism, a desire for Oneness, social justice, an expansion of consciousness, a quest for Truth rather than theory, and an integration of science and spirituality," she says.
"This potent configuration is like a cosmic reminder that we can no longer continue as we have been and now is the time for us to move away from our infancy as a race and grow into conscious adults."
The alignment, which will reach its peak at 7:05pm GMT, parallels a historic configuration that occurred on February 5, 1962, in which seven planetary bodies lined up in Aquarius in what astrologists say was the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.
"In 1962, the intensification of energy of this line-up of planets resulted in worldwide changes of social and spiritual consciousness," Rev. Blaze writes.

"This was the beginning of a counter-culture: a new spirituality, transformative love – numerous changes, positive and negative.
"The planetary configuration on February 11th, 2021, is akin to humanity being given a second chance to uphold the positive attributes of the new spirituality of this Age, embodied by organisations such as The Aetherius Society."
Dr King, also known as the Master Aetherius, used to keep a journal of "cosmic messages" he claimed to receive from the universe, one of which described how the negative energy from "terrestrials" had "modified the tremendous radiations" from a particular planetary configuration.

Humanity's pessimism had "made what could have been Spiritual honey into a dark acid", according to one message.
In order to prevent this from happening again the Aetherius Society is encouraging the current inhabitants of Earth to reflect only positive vibes back into the universe during Thursday's alignment.
"All of the planetary energies in this configuration are positive," the Society said in an email detailing the upcoming event.

"However, due to the negative karma and thought pattern of mankind as a whole, they are likely to be warped to some degree or other, lessening their positive function and even being a cause of yet more unrest in our troubled world.
"This makes it even more important for spiritual workers to band together and radiate light to counter negativity at this time."
The two back-to-back services will be held online at 7pm and 8pm GMT, the first hosted by Rt. Rev. Brian Keneipp and the second by Rev. Blaze.
Those who engage in global prayer will be "using the potent energies of the planets" to help mankind evolve, the Society says.
"Let us remember that, in this Age of Science – the Aquarian Age – it is our Love that is the most essential energy of all."
Science website Earth Sky advises that the planetary conjunction will be most visible to those in the Southern Hemisphere, and avid stargazers may miss out on the phenomenon entirely.
