You can draw an imaginary line between any two points in the sky and call it an alignment. Its not a magic line or anything. The planets have been doing this same dance for ever . Did you know that the planet venus traces a perfect pentical in the sky every eight years .Does that mean that venus is an evil planet? Many people think the pentical is an evil symbol. Did you know that the Olympics were timed out to follow the tracings of Venus and that the first Olympic symbol was supposed to be the pentical but it was thought that interconnecting circles told a better story of unity. So instead of a five pointed star we have five interconnected circles. The sky is the biggest thing we know and its been there for our entertainment since we first opened our eyes and looked up. Its not far fetched that our ancestors were enthralled by the nightly dance. They didnt have MTV. And the sky is still the biggest entertainment when we are on a camping trip.

What thebarcaroller says is the planetary alignment and asteroid ceres alignment, previously caused X-flares and earthquakes. Yes, we've experienced X-flares many times.
Relationship with asteroids aligning and earthquakes
An EMP may also be a naturally-occurring event caused by solar flares and storms disrupting the Earth’s magnetic field. In 1859, a major solar storm occurred, causing auroral displays and significant shifts of the Earth’s magnetic fields. As a result, telegraphs were rendered useless and several telegraph stations burned down. The impacts of that storm were muted because semiconductor technology did not exist at the time. Were the storm to happen today, according to an article in Scientific American, it could “severely damage satellites, disable radio communications, and cause continent-wide electrical black-outs that would require weeks or longer to recover from.” 3 Although storms of this magnitude occur rarely, storms and flares of lesser intensity occur more frequently. Storms of about half the intensity of the 1859 storm occur every 50 years or so according to the authors of the Scientific American article, and the last such storm occurred in November 1960, leading to world-wide geomagnetic disturbances and radio outages. The power grid is particularly vulnerable to solar storms, as transformers are electrically grounded to the Earth and susceptible to damage from geomagnetically induced currents. The damage or destruction of numerous transformers across the country would result in reduced grid functionality and even prolonged power outages.

Thebarcaroller is a Astrophysicist on You Tube who does educational-type videos on planetary alignments and such. He is stating that due to the upcoming planetary alignments, including an asteroid "ceres" also aligning with the planets. This alignment could cause disruption with the Sun and cause an X-flare. He goes onto say that this alignment is similar to the alignment of planets that caused the Carrington Event of 1859. Such an event today will wipe out our electrical grid and cause long term damage.
We present the study of 682 earthquakes of ¡Ý4.0 magnitude observed during January 1991 to January 2007 in the light of solar flares observed by GOES and SOXS missions in order to explore the possibility of any association between solar flares and earthquakes. Our investigation preliminarily shows that each earthquake under study was preceded by a solar flare of GOES importance B to X class by 10-100 hrs. However, each flare was not found followed by earthquake of magnitude ¡Ý4.0. We classified the earthquake events with respect to their magnitude and further attempted to look for their correlation with GOES importance class and delay time. We found that with the increasing importance of flares the delay in the onset of earthquake reduces. The critical X-ray intensity of the flare to be associated with earthquake is found to be ~10-6 Watts/m2. On the other hand no clear evidence could be established that higher importance flares precede high magnitude earthquakes. Our detailed study of 50 earthquakes associated with solar flares observed by SOXS mission and other wavebands revealed many interesting results such as the location of the flare on the Sun and the delay time in the earthquake and its magnitude. We propose a model explaining the charged particles accelerated during the solar flare and released in the space that undergone further acceleration by interplanetary shocks and produce the ring current in the earth's magnetosphere, which may enhance the process of tectonics plates motion abruptly at fault zones. It is further proposed that such sudden enhancement in the process of tectonic motion of plates in fault zones may increase abruptly the heat gradients on spatial (dT/dx) and temporal (dT/dt) scales responsible for earthquakes.
The observed temporal clustering of Fig. 4 shows that the rate of ﬂare occurrence decreases in time as a power law after a ”mainﬂare”. Since the same behaviour is found for seismic sequences, here we propose that the mechanism at the basis of seismic energy redistribution can be responsible for ”afterﬂare” occurrence. In particular magnetic stress transfer in Solar Corona plays the role of elastic stress redistribution on the Earth crust.
