I' want only to help, what is wrong of you here ..
We need to understood nature of Earth, Sun etc ..

Planets alignments is very dangerous in next 60 days
Please take some time to learn about gravity, and gravitational forces.
It is VERY simple: Tides.
WHAT causes the tides, on Earth? The Moon. Why?? Because of its proximity.
NONE of the planets....none of them....affect the Earth in that manner. Not even our SUN!! Our Sun, which contains ~98% of ALL the mass of the entire Solar System......98%!!!
The nearest planets, the inner rocky planets, Mercury, Venus and Mars.....cannot compare, in mass to the Sun!! Jupiter, the largest of the gas giants....still, nothing compared to the Sun....AND, Jupiter is MUCH, MUCH farther away!!!
Please.....learn. This is rubbish, the "alignments" junk.....
As you can see, since the solar system is only 4.6 x 109 (4.6 billion) years old, and will only be in existence for a grand total of 1010 (10 billion) years, our calculated probability for an exact planetary alignment to occur is once in 86 billion-trillion-trillion-trillion years! (That's a 86 followed by 45 zeros years!)
The odds strongly favor that an exact planetary alignment will NEVER occur throughout the entire history of the solar system.
While unusual, such alignments have happened in the past without any consequences. The planets are simply too far away to have an effect on anything here on Earth - except our imaginations.

Interesting, most of the research I have seen is stating the exact opposite of what you say. Would you mind citing your sources for this "scientific research"?
So, my question is: If a planet, that has a mass equal to 1/100 of the mass of a star, can affect a star causing it to wobble, how can we dismiss with absolute certaintly the idea that another planet can cause the same effect on Earth? And what if it is not just gravity, but another force, maybe unknown yet to us, combined with gravity that can cause such an effect?
Hubble could not directly view the 16 newly found planet candidates. Astronomers used Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys to search for planets by measuring the slight dimming of a star due to the passage of a planet in front of it, an event called a transit. The planet would have to be about the size of Jupiter to block enough starlight, about one to 10 percent, to be measurable by Hubble
A black hole’s gravity is so intense that nothing, not even light can escape it – that makes them pretty much invisible to astronomers. That doesn’t mean astronomers can’t find them, though, as black holes have a powerful effect on their environment. One way to spot a blackhole is the gravitation effect it has on nearby objects; stars have been found orbiting a spot in space so quickly, it could only be a black hole. When matter is just about to be consumed by the black hole, there is also a powerful burst of radiation that can be seen from Earth-based observers.
OMG, check this out - the entire western side of the Pacific Ring of Fire has been lighting up with quakes over 5.0 in the last 2 days
