Fascinating thread. I've had a little look on the web, but I can't find the answer to this point.
When did this Grand Conjunction last occur, and what, if anything happened?
I am not sure that there is a recorded event of this conjunction occurring 3.5 years after a Venus transit, during a full moon, and on the winter
solstice... Certainly, it may have been at the end of the last solar cycle (5125 years ago). This event, astrologically and astronomically, are both
more significant than that of the 12-21-2012 event. Add the significance of the Washington Mall Solar Calendar and things start to really seem
interesting in the coming months.
It is important to remember that our calendar may not have been correctly aligned with the solar calendar. If "Jesus" was born in about 4BCE (and
no exact date is known), this places the ending date of the Mayan calender suspiciously close to 2007.
Parts of this article may be confusing or unclear.
Please help clarify the article. Suggestions may be on the talk page. (May 2007)
A very remarkable planetary/galactic configuration occurs on December 23rd and 24th 2007. The configuration on December 23 — Mars, Earth, Sun,
Mercury, Jupiter, Galactic Centre — is shown in the graphic simulation linked below; it becomes even more remarkable in that it will be accompanied
by the Full Moon (conjunct Mars) at about 2 a.m. on December 24 when a simultaneous Venus square Neptune occurs. It is even more remarkable in that
the Pluto/Sun conjunction appears exactly on the Winter Solstice, just past conjunction with the Galactic Centre.

just after the Pluto/Jupiter (Heliocentric) conjunction on 23 November 2007. NASA Solar System Simulator for 23rd Dec 2007
Solar System on Dec 22, 2007. What is not shown is Pluto (which would be to Jupiter's right) Saturn, which follows down from Venus, and Uranus and
Neptune. Saturn and Neptune form the cross's t-member. It is a 23/12 configuration. There will be a full moon on Dec. 23, 2007—right under
