Actually, they are.  Given that Jupiter and Saturn line up on the same side of
the sun every 19.85 years, that means they line up on opposite sides of the
sun 9.93 years after.

I believe TP takes place in 1989.  So that would be just about right (maybe
a little off).

But I believe the show said Jupiter and Saturn would "meet."  Being on
opposite sides of the sun isn't exactly meeting.  So who knows?
