Tight groupings, or ‘stelliums’, of three or more outer planets in the skies at the same time are extremely rare. We only see Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto cluster tightly together in groups of three or more on an average of one every 84 years. While there have not been any five-outer-planet stelliums in the last 2000 years, three- and four-outer-planet stelliums have occurred on twenty-five occasions during this time. Twenty-three of them were three-outer-planet stelliums, and two of them were four-outer-planet stelliums.

 These rarest of astrological events - clusters of four outer planets all grouped tightly together - just happened to coincide with the Fall of Rome and the Dawn of the Renaissance, arguably the two biggest turning points in Western civilization over the last two millennia.

 All of these three- and four-outer-planet stelliums include Jupiter, or Saturn, or both.  There have been no groupings of the three outermost planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the last 2000 years.  The last time these three did conjoin together was in July 577 BC, in the sign Taurus.  This coincided with a worldwide religious and philosophical renaissance that brought us Buddha, Zoroaster, Pythagoras, Confucius,  Tao Tzu, Isaiah, and Ezekiel.

Three- and four-planet stelliums do not occur on a regular schedule.  We go through exciting, action-packed times where we see a number of them clustered together in a short period, and then we also go through long dreary stretches where we don’t see any of them at all. Between 411-491, when Rome fell, we saw three of them one right after the other, averaging one every 26 years. Between 769-836, during the era of Charlemagne and the Carolingian Renaissance, we saw one every 16 years or so.  And between 1852-2020, during the modern age, we have been seeing one an average of every 28 years. But between 837-1305, during the Dark Ages, we only saw these stelliums on an average of one every 234 years.

When multiple outer-planet stelliums occur one right after the other,  they seem to act in unison, but most of the time, each outer planet stellium produces its own signature effect on history, and as you will see, they seem to be the heartbeat of civilization itself.

Outer-Planet Stellium 1
In April 187 AD, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto clustered together in Gemini in a tight 3 degree formation.  This occurred just as a major turning point arrived in the Roman Empire, when the celebrated and majestic ‘Era of the Five Good Emperors’ ended with Marcus Aurelius’ death in 180 AD. Emperor Commodus’ dark and Geminiishly capricious reign during 180-192 is viewed by historians as the beginning of the decline of the Roman Empire.

Outer-Planet Stelliums 2 & 3
In October 232 AD, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune grouped together in Aries with just 7 degrees separating them.  This was closely followed by a 5 degree wide conjunction of Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto in Leo in September 283. These two Fire Sign stelliums marked the bookends of Rome's fiery and furious 'Crisis of the 3rd Century' (235-284AD), when the Roman Empire nearly collapsed under the multiple pressures of invasion, civil war, plague, and economic depression.  During this short but tumultuous period, Rome had 26 different Emperors, and the Empire actually split apart into three competing states for a time.

Outer-Planet Stellium 4
In June 411 AD, an extremely rare stellium of four outer planets occurred, with Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto all clustered together in a 6 degree wide Aquarian formation. This coincided with the revolutionary Fall of Rome, when the city was invaded and sacked for the first time in 800 years. (Mercury also joined this alignment, making it a five-planet stellium)

Outer-Planet Stelliums 5 & 6
In August 449 AD, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune conjoined together in a 7 degree wide Leo formation, closely followed by Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus conjoining together in a 2 degree wide Aquarian formation in March 491 AD.  This period marked the final end of the Western Roman Empire, when it disintegrated and split apart into several independent states. The last Leoine Emperor of Rome died in 480. (Mars joined the 491 alignment, making it a four-planet stellium). Note that the 411 stellium and the 491 stellium are the only Aquarian stelliums that have occurred in the last 2000 years, and they appropriately occurred at the time of the greatest single revolution in 2000 years.

Outer-Planet Stelliums 7 & 8
April 582 AD saw a one degree wide Saturn/Uranus/Pluto conjunction in Pisces, followed closely by a 4 degree wide Saturn/Uranus/Neptune conjunction in Virgo in November 625.  Islam’s founder Mohammed was born in 570 and preached a new religious practice and earthly faith between 609-632.  (Mars joined the 625 alignment, making it a four planet stellium)

Outer-Planet Stelliums 9, 10, 11, & 12
Between 769-836 AD, we saw four stelliums occur one right after the other : Jupiter/Saturn/Neptune in Leo in July 769, Jupiter/Uranus/Neptune in Virgo in November 794, Jupiter/Saturn/Uranus in Leo in February 809, and Jupiter/Uranus/Pluto in Pisces in October 836.  This period brought Charlemagne (742-814) and the Carolingian Renaissance, which was the first flowering of culture in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire. (Venus joined the 769 and 794 alignments, making them both four-planet stelliums)

Outer-Planet Stellium 13
In August 946 AD, we saw a 2 degree wide grouping of Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto in Cancer.  This coincided with the Ottonian Renaissance, the second of Europe’s three medieval renaissances. (Venus joined the 946 alignment, making it a four-planet stellium)

Outer-Planet Stellium 14
In July 1146, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto assembled in a 4 degree wide conjunction in Taurus. This coincided with the third and last medieval renaissance, the ‘Renaissance of the 12th Century’. It also coincided with the Crusades, a war over property rights.

Outer-Planet Stellium 15
In October of 1306, another extremely rare four-outer-planet stellium occurred when Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune all conjoined together in a 7 degree wide swatch of Scorpio. The famous Italian Renaissance began just a few years later.  (The Sun joined this alignment, making it a five planet stellium). Note that the word 'Renaissance' literally means 'rebirth', a classic Scorpio theme.  

Outer-Planet Stellium 16
In September 1457, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto conjoined together in a 5 degree wide swath  of Leo.  This coincided with the 1454 publication of the world’s first book printed with moveable type, starting the Gutenburg Revolution and the age of the printed book in the West.

Outer-Planet Stellium 17
In January 1524, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune conjoined together in Pisces with just 1 degree between them. The Protestant Reformation began in Germany in 1517-1521, sparking the first war of the Reformation, the German Peasants’ War, in 1524-25. The underprivileged peasant classes are, of course, a classic Piscean issue.

Outer-Planet Stellium 18

In December 1651, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune clustered together in a 3 degree wide segment of Sagittarius just as the English Civil War came to an end, replacing the monarchy with Europe’s first republic since the Roman Republic ended in 27 BC. (Venus joined this alignment, making it a four-planet stellium). Note the Sagittarian nature of the egalitarian philosophy underlying republican government.

Outer-Planet Stellium 19
In January 1703, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune conjoined in a 5 degree wide stretch of Aries.  1701 is widely viewed as the starting date of the Age of Enlightenment. (Mars joined this alignment, making it a four-planet stellium). The War of Spanish Succession also occurred now, underscoring the martial nature of Arian stelliums. This is widely considered the first world war of the modern era, with theaters of war in Holland, Italy, Spain, Germany, and at sea.

Outer-Planet Stellium 20
In March 1762, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus conjoined in a 3 degree wide portion of Aries.  During another warlike period, this stellium coincided with the Seven Year War between 1754-1763, which is also widely considered the first real ‘world war’ because it was fought on multiple continents. It also coincided with the start of the First Industrial Revolution in 1760 and the American Democratic Experiment in 1776. (Venus joined this alignment, making it a four-planet stellium)

Outer-Planet Stellium 21
In March 1852, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto squeezed together in a tight 2 degree wide conjunction in Aries and Taurus.  This coincided with the Second Industrial Revolution between 1840-1870.  It also coincided with a series of violent revolutions in Europe in 1848, the discovery in 1855 of a process to mass produce steel, the world’s first oil refinery in 1856, the Theory of Evolution in 1859, and the US Civil War in 1861.

Outer-Planet Stellium 22
In May 1894, Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto conjoined at 10-12 degrees Gemini. This coincided with the Gilded Age, a period of rapid economic, technological, and political growth in the US.  A true Gemini period, it brought the  first automobile in America, the first women’s vote, the first gramophone record, the first commercial motion picture, the first telephone switchboard, the first two-way telegraph, and the first protest march in the US, all in 1894. It also brought the Panic of 1893, the worst economic depression in US history up to that point, which brought a number of riots and strikes. Note that transiting Uranus conjoined this stellium in 1945, right as WWII ended.

Outer-Planet Stellium 23
In May 1941, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus joined together in Taurus with just under 8 degrees separating them.  This coincided with World War II and the Holocaust, when 60 million people died and nearly every nation on the planet was at war.

Outer-Planet Stellium 24
In October 1968, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto conjoined in a 7 degree cross-cusp swath of Virgo and Libra. This coincided with radical social, cultural, and political  changes in China, America, Europe, Japan, Israel, Libya, Brazil, India, Mexico, Czechoslovakia, and Africa. It brought China’s Cultural Revolution, America’s Moon Landing, Woodstock, Israel’s Six Day War, the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, the Sexual Revolution, the Black Power movement, race riots, gay rights riots, worker’s strikes, feminism, drug culture, widespread protest movements, and several political assassinations. (Mars joined this alignment, making it a four-planet stellium)

Outer-Planet Stellium 25
In February 1989, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune clustered together between 3-10 degrees Capricorn. This coincided with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989; the collapse of the Soviet Empire, the end of the first Cold War, and the corresponding rise of the US to Sole World Superpower status in 1990-1991; and the dawn of international Islamic terrorism in 1993. Note the Capricorn nature of the dramatic change in the world order that occurred now. Note also that the world-shaking Arab Spring in 2011-2014 occurred just as transiting Pluto conjoined the same 3-10 Capricorn location.

Outer-Planet Stellium 26
In March 2020, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjoin at 22-29 degrees Capricorn.  (Mars joins this alignment, making it a four-planet stellium). To get an idea of what this may bring, consider that the only previous Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto conjunctions were Stellium 4, which brought the Fall of Rome, and Stellium 14, which brought the Crusades. Note that this is the second Capricorn stellium in a row, and that these are the only Capricorn stelliums in the entire 2000 year series.

Outer-Planet Stellium 27
The next one after 2020 doesn’t arrive until February 2080, when Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus line up together within 5 degrees of one another in Aquarius.This stellium is opposed by Neptune, and it seems to suggest a final war between Islam and the West.


Between 1852-2020, when the world was going through an unprecedented growth spurt, there was an Outer Planet Stellium an average of every 28 years. But between the 2020 stellium and the 2080 stellium there is a 60 year gap, and that suggests that the pace of civilization, progress, and advancement is going to slow down considerably after 2020, and that suggests that the 2020 stellium is going to set the world back by quite a bit.

This 2000 year long series had five stelliums in Leo, four in Aries, three in Pisces, three in Virgo, each two in Capricorn, Aquarius, and Gemini,  and one each in Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Sagittarius.  The least-represented sign was Libra, which only had a single cross-cusp stellium (1968), with some planets in Virgo and others across the cusp in Libra.   It is interesting that this most warlike chapter in human history had ten stelliums in fire signs, six in earth, and five each in air and water signs.

My Documented Record


Outer-Planet Stelliums:

The Engine of Civilization



I am a professional astrologer with 38 years experience, and this is my prediction list. As a free public service, I document all my predictions of national and international events. My record is open and transparent and freely available to the public. All my national and international predictions are documented in unedited time- and date-stamped posts on Facebook. You may have never seen another astrologer do this, and perhaps you never will again.


My success rate is high, short of 100% accuracy to be sure, but still something I am very proud of. I spent 38 years of my life learning how to do this, but I would like to see the next generation go farther in less time.  Astrology has amazed and inspired me for almost 40 years, and I hope this list will do the same for you.


I  predicted the exact day and hour of my grandson's birth.  Every doctor in the world will tell you that's impossible, but I did it anyway, and the proof is in this list.  I predicted way back in July 2015 that Trump's presidential campaign would be successful.  He's going all the way whether any of us like it or not.  I predicted that Jeb Bush would enter the Presidential race in 2015, but added that he would pull out by February 2016. He did.  I predicted that the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series in 2016. They did.  I correctly predicted that the US Supreme Court would uphold Obamacare and Gay Marriage in summer 2015, that Obama would get his nuclear deal with Iran, and that it would pass Congress successfully.  I accurately predicted that Obama would not bomb Syria in September 2013, and that the US would go through a Government Shutdown in October 2013, but would not default.  I even predicted the exact day the Shutdown would end.  I predicted that the Obamacare rollout in October would be a huge disorganized mess. Long before ISIS showed up, I predicted that the US would be at war in 2015 and 2016, and I even predicted what month it would start.  I predicted the summer of violence in the US in 2015, and identified July - when the Islamic terrorist Attacks occurred in Chattanooga - as being the most violent month of that already so-violent summer. I predicted that Officer Wilson of Ferguson would not be indicted by the local or federal govbernment, I predicted that the Republicans would win big in the 2014 US elections, and I predicted that Netanyahu would win his March 2015 election. I have predicted ups and downs in the DJIA. On several occasions I predicted the timing (almost to the exact day) of high-profile acts of violence in America. I predicted that Obama would celebrate one of the biggest accomplishments of his presidency in July or August 2015, when he got his Iran Nuclear Deal. I predicted when the Ferguson Grand Jury would announce its decision, I predicted what that decision would be, and I predicted when the subsequent rioting would eventually die down. I predicted in summer 2014 that Obama would wait until after the election to unveil his Amnesty for Illegals program.  I predicted Putin's success in the Ukraine Crisis. I predicted that Japan would never get the 2011 Fukushima disaster under control, and that Obamacare would never be successful.   I predicted the Orlando and San Bernardino Terrorist Attacks (I was two weeks off on the timing for San Bernardino and just four days off on Orlando. I predicted the Terrorist Attacks in the US in September 2016.


Everything on this list is 100% impossible, supposedly.  Yet everything on this list really happened, and the links in the list provide rock-solid proof of that. This list has a single purpose - to demonstrate  that there really IS something to astrology after all.  Conventional wisdom says that NONE of this should be possible, but here it is all the same.


With the publication of this list, astrological prediction is no longer hypothetical, and the world has entered a new era.
