syzygy – Word of the Day

syzygy – noun


1.   Astronomy. an alignment of three celestial objects, as the sun, the earth, and either the moon or a planet

2.   Classical Prosody. a group or combination of two feet, sometimes restricted to a combination of two feet of different kinds.

3.   any two related things, either alike or opposite.

This is a great, crazy word to use in writing. Adds a unique sound. Here is my sentence:

‘No day can be more perfect for miracles to happen than when a celestial syzygy occurs.’

Can you use it in your writing?
