No reason in particular for asking...

Quick reality check - if someone says that something will happen when “the stars are right” is there any intrinsic reason why this should not mean "tomorrow morning about nine-ish"?

Later: To clarify this a bit, I was thinking of someone deliberately using the phrase misleadingly, e.g. they already know when the stars will be right, they just don't want the person they talk to to realise the immanence of the impending event.
