A STELLIUM is when 4 or more planets are conjunct (grouped together) within a few degrees. A conjunction can be an extraordinary event in its effect and is unlikely to be something that occurs with the same planets more than once in most lifetimes. A Good example of the Stellium was 8/24/1987 when Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars were all conjunct within 4 degrees. The result was a market high within one day of this date and a crash within 2 months. The market took over 2 years to make another new high after this event.
An even more massive Stellium occurred in 1994 when Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Uranus, and Neptune were within 8 degrees of one another on January 11th. An all time high in the S&P did take a few weeks to unfold after this date but it was 13 months before another new high was made in the S&P once the top was in. A very large earthquake struck California just a few days after this Stellium was exact.
A more recent example of a Stellium was May 4th 2000. On this date Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn were within 26 degrees in Taurus. A significant low in stocks occurred late in May of 2000 and the ultimate bear cycle low as of October 2000 is as yet unknown. Suffice to say this may be of at least as much significance as the 1987 and 1994 stelliums.
