The Autumn Equinox happened on September 22, 2009 at 09:20 PM GMT, or 05:20 PM EDT when Mercury was transiting retrograde conjunct Saturn opposite Uranus. In the world chart, this configuration focuses on unresolved problems of the poor involving labor, crime and general misery, the affects of which will include increasingly unbearable working conditions, poor health and criminal activity among the poor and destitute. This is the fall-out of the rampant greed that continues to plague the world.
The astrological configuration in this chart also shows that the sensationalist news media that is controlled by the multi-national interests, along with the government propaganda machines will continue to spread lies about the world's condition, distracting the people from the real issues by generating and directing fear and hatred among the people. The entire world has been brought to its knees by the aggressive cancer of the greed of the multinational corporations and the criminals in government violating all of the world's boundaries, driving hordes of people from one land to another and bringing down poverty everywhere.
The future outlook for the world is distressed, but shows some hope, however tenuous, for eventual reforms in relations between the interests of the multi-nationals and the world's governments. The people everywhere are angry in great number. Troubles are yet coming to the world's governments due to continuing financial losses, increasing problems of crime, including corporate crime, and natural disasters.
There are probablities of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions happening as well. Violent earth events will put stress on food and medical supplies in affected areas. The financial difficulties of the various governments are causing popular unrest and conflict in several areas of the world.
Pluto at 00 degrees Capricorn at the Autumn Equinox is exactly square the Sun at 00 Degrees Libra. This means that financial problems that exist between multinational corporations and world governments will be compounded through the Fall. The stresses of these problems will inevitably lead to needed restructuring of several of the corporations and of international relations altogether. Expect more heads to roll. Some corporations will cease to exist.
The Equinox Chart read locally at Washington DC shows the Mercury, Saturn, Uranus configuration between the 7th and 1st houses indicating strained international relations rooted in past problems as yet unresolved. Negotiations between the US and certain foreign governments will prove unsuccessful; they will not keep their word and will prove untrustworthy if not treacherous. There is unwelcome pressure coming against the American Government from foreign interests. Foreign trade is depressed. The popular outlook in the US is turbulent. There is more hate mongering on the way. A lot of people are very confused, troubled and susceptible to all the hate mongering. The US chart also indicates that we can expect to hear of the death of someone in the entertainment field, as well as of a member of congress.
