I recently stumbled on an article regarding fate.  There is no such thing as a coincidence in this world, only the inevitable. 世上沒有偶然,只是必然

However, philosophy isn’t a subject I want to dwell upon.  What I want to bring up here is the phrase “when stars align”.   It might seem a quantum leap to jump from inevitability to star alignment.  Anyway, they are all somewhat related to fate.  When will the stars align?  The actual answer is probably “Never”, not even once in a blue moon.  When stars align, it would be highly unlikely, unexpected and impossible.  So, it must be fate if the stars align.命運使然  

 

For example:

John is praying to win the lottery jackpot.  Let's see if the stars align.
