Cosco Shipping's purchase of Hong Kong-based Orient Overseas makes the Chinese state-owned firm the world’s third-largest bulk shipping company, and the largest servicing the lucrative Asia to North America route, beating out Copenhagen-based A.P. Moller-Maersk and France’s CMA CGM.

The news of Cosco’s purchase of Hong Kong-based Orient Overseas comes just a day after the Full Moon. At Hongkong, the luminaries align with the meridian forming a T-square with Jupiter-Pluto. The reference below explains the meaning of this combination.

In addition, we note that the Sun [17cn] and the MC [12cn] are conjunct the star Canopus. Alpha (α) Carina, Canopus, is a white binary star in the Keel of the ship Argo Navis, the brightest star in the constellation of Argo Navis, the Great Ship, and the second biggest star in the sky . So we can see that the map also contains a clue that the buyout or takeover could be that of a shipping line!
