Things are never going to be the same again...

The conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in January 2020 would alter world events altogether. It brings together the reckoning power of Saturn and the purging power of Pluto. Hence this would mean a difficult time around, especially for those in power and those who are abusing it blatantly.

This deadly conjunction of Pluto and Saturn forebodes the crumbling of societal structures across the globe. It weakens world systems. There would be a major shift in power. Upheaval of sorts can be witnessed around, there would be rise and fall of governments, mass strikes and protests (the one in Hong Kong is just a starter !!) economic collapses and the like.

And a strong point to note here is that those who were born during the period of 1982 to 1983 and 1946 to 1948 ( previous Saturn-Pluto conjunction periods) would be leading the change. Old rules would be re-written for modern times. This conjunction would give suitable irreparable reward for those who have gone against existing methods of ruling. There might be some dark days that herald the birth of a new beginning.

There would be rifts in US and North Korean relationships. Some countries would be seen fighting at the tip of an iceberg. Certain dominant powers across the world would fall. Major global institutions would crumble or would be revamped. A new world order emerges.
