Venus and Jupiter are supposed to align to form what some historians and astronomers think was the Star of Bethlehem. But it's not a "once-in-decades" event. It will happen again in August 2016, but won't be visible in North America. The next time it will happen where we can see it will be sometime in 2019.

I heard that it was the rare event of 5 planets being visible at the same time.

I also remember that back in the 80s ( ? ) that the planets were going to line up and the world was going to come to an end. I forget what the outcome of that was.

Perhaps the stars being aligned, might almost kinda maybe be a joke

If H. P. Lovecraft was right, it signals the rise of Ry'leh and the awakening of Great Cthulhu…

All that glitters ain't gold
All that twinkles ain't stars
One thing heard from days old
We think we are more than we are
