Was there a 'Star of David' conjunction of the planets on January 23, 1997?

The planets Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune were very close together near the Sun around that time. Neptune was in conjunction with the Sun on January 17th, Jupiter followed on the 19th, and there was a third conjunction between the Sun and Uranus on the 24th. But I do not know what that had to do with the 'Star of David'.
