What's the big, fat, astronomical deal?

I'm sorry, but I just don't get the big deal about the alignment of the stars.

I want to give a crap, but it's just so easy not to. Of course, it never helps when you're not in the best mood to begin with. Cynicism just comes too easily.

I've already gotten into it twice over the "importance" of this astronomical event - once with my sister, begging me for more information on what exactly is supposed to happen up in the sky, and another time with a friend, discussing just how significant the placement of the stars is (or isn't).

Maybe someone could convince me, really convince me, and construct an argument that can trump my ingrained cynicism. Just maybe.

But let's be honest for a minute. Isn't the placement of the stars just a chance occurrence pre-determined by physics?

I know it's a horrible argument. I know it is. In fact, my cynicism is just a pretty obvious byproduct of a bunch of really bad negativity already brewing with everything else happenning in life right now. Cause sometimes a blog is like a horoscope. Vague, generic, and really about something else entirely.
