Syzygy is derived from the Latin syzygia, “conjunction”, and from the Greek, syzygos, “yoked together”.
In astronomy, a syzygy is the alignment of three or more celestial bodies in the same gravitational system along a straight line.
In Gnosticism, a syzygy is a divine active-passive, male-female pair of aeons, complementary to one another rather than oppositional.
In zoology, syzygy is the association of two protozoa end-to-end or laterally for the purpose of asexual exchange of genetic material.
