Tunisia and Egypt were lucky to have leaders that understood quickly enough that their time was at an end. The horoscopes of Ben Ali and Mubarak, although pretty bad, were not as horrible as that of Gaddafi's natal chart, or his son's who, from last night, took an active role in the repression. Particularly in regard to the interaction between the national charts and their leaders. In Bahrain, we are still expectant of what could happen, although the King has decided not to use violence against protesters (to date... and how long for?).
Unfortunately for the Libyan people, their country leader may not be so intelligent and this sorry state of things is cumulated with bad stars.
If you have been following this blog closely, you have noticed that events happening in Libya were so fast that I had to put news on top of my template instead of posts, in order to give you the news of the Libya Revolution quickly. If you want more news of the revolts in the Middle East and North Africa, in one place rather than all over the Internet, I've created a News Section on Google. Please feel welcomed to use it (free), you can add it to your own personalised page on Google news.
Today, 21st February 2011, the unthinkable has happened. After 5 days of violence, more than 200 dead and 100s injured, Gaddafi's son promised last night that:
...the government would not yield to the people's will. He promised rivers of blood, said the army would bring order by any means and would destroy all elements of sedition...All day, snipers, thugs, mercenaries have been firing at the people. There are reports that military jets are firing in the crowds, bodies are piling up on the streets. This afternoon, two fully-armed military Libyan jets pilots defected and landed in Malta where they sought asylum, as well as 2 civilian helicopters with 7 people. The pilots of the Mirage were senior colonels in the Libyan army and were ordered to bomb Benghazi which had been liberated last night. They decided to refuse their orders as they were 500 feet from their targets, seeing the human beings below who could be their sons or their cousins, and turned their jets towards Malta. Today, a number of Libyan ambassadors have resigned - 9 of them at the time of writing.
Below are the charts and some short analysis of the events of the last few days.
First, Gaddafi's horoscope. Various sources give two dates for his birth and I was unable to ascertain which is right: either 1st or 7th June 1942. At any rate, he was born in a very poor family in Syrte, Libya, where it is unlikely that, in those days, birth registrations, if there were any, had any accuracy. I'll take 7 June 1942 which seems to be in agreement with most sources - consider it dirty data - pun intended. Chart is timed for 12 noon, as per tradition when birth time is unknown, therefore axes and Moon could be wildly off.

A mentally unstable GeminiIn the geo chart, the man has 5 planets plus Black Moon and Sappho in Gemini. Mercury is part of this configuration and is retrograde - mental agility which is dignified for the worst. If the moon is anywhere near right, it's at the end of Pisces or in the first decanate of Aries. This is an impulsive (Ma) Gemini who does not think too much before acting and who will be opinionated against every one else's advice (Me Rx).
Military by inclinationConsidering his military career, naming himself a Colonel and keeping his title throughout his tenure, the Moon is probably in Aries. His Mars Neptune sextile from Cancer to Virgo made him an outstanding military man, capable of organizing the army (which he did with success) when he grabbed power.
Your money is my moneyVenus in Taurus will make him like riches, which he will obtain (Ve trine NN) but use in a bad way (Ve sqr Pl). The Jupiter Neptune square will make him have grandiose ideas many of which he can organize well (Ne qcx Pallas). Jupiter Neptune is also connected to oil. The opposition of Ceres to Neptune will make him selfish beyond his close family circle. It might be rather interesting to trace where the oil money went, because it certainly wasn't given to the people.
Truth, half-truths and liesThe slightly wide Mercury-Neptune will make him a person having pathological difficulties with truth. Mars in Cancer will make him use secrecy and manipulation against others, as well as stubbornness.
A selfish dictatorSaturn conjunct Uranus in Gemini will have him use his sense of responsibility for the masses, in particular with the sextiles to Pluto and, possibly, the Moon. It is true to say that there was a time, long ago, when he was popular and considered an Arab Robin Hood. Sadly, the heavier planets faults and an egotist Moon made him turn his sense of control and power only to serve himself and none other.
Unyielding with family membersThe helio chart shows that if any of his family members do not agree with him, he'll be unforgiving with them (almost exact Ve sqr Sa, and Pl qcx Ve and Ce). On the other hand, if they obey, he'll shower them with gifts and affection.
A dictator by starsThe only sign that this man would shed his fellow citizens blood to remain in power is vested in the lone Chiron in Leo, void of any major aspect, with the majority of planets in impersonal airy Gemini; and, very possibly, in the exact conjunction of the Black Moon to Sappho. He actually has enjoyed making others suffer if one considers the darkest of the significance of the Black Moon and Sappho - Sappho being fear personified and both of which are quincunx the Accursed Degree of the Accursed Sign. This man considers others as objects or animals, not as human beings. Torturing others was but one way to avoid confronting his own fears. Briefly, the chart is pretty well suited to this ruthless dictator.
Like father, like son...His second son by his second wife, Saif al-Islam Muammar Al-Gaddafi, is the man who made the speech last night. As a speaker for his father, he presented a rather poor show of a human being at the same time contrite and vengeful. Like the other leaders involved in the Middle East unrests, he started blaming everyone but his dog for inciting riots in his country. Offering a carrot to negotiate a national dialogue with a stick of civil war and bloodshed, he showed his worth, in the last minutes of this speech, by promising the army would bring order by any means and would destroy all elements of sedition (as quoted above and as I took notes from the interpreter).
