A new Libya horoscope is born today.After the account of current events (below) are the astrological charts of the birth of the new government for Libya.
Libya was reborn today, 10 March 2011, at 10h03m GMT. Located at Benghazi, the new Libya is a Sun Pisces with Gemini rising and Moon in Taurus. The new name of this country will be the "Libyan Republic".
An unexpected birth by C-sectionIts birth was given body by the act of the first official recognition of a foreign government of the Libyan Interim Transitional National Council. This recognition has been granted by France which declares today that it officially recognizes the Libyan Interim Transition National Council as the sole representative of the Lybian people. France will send an ambassador to Benghazi shortly. The Libyan TNC will open an embassy in Paris. This happened when two representatives of the Libyan TNC, Messrs Jibril and Essaoui, were received by France's President, Nicolas Sarkozy, this morning. At the end of the meeting, both parties made a declaration to this effect.
|.||.||Mr. Mahmoud Jebril, representative of the Executive Team, was born in 1952 in Libya and was responsible for economic affairs in Libya. On the Wikileaks Embassy Cables, he is considered as a "serious person" - Reference (do NOT access the following site if your government could cause you trouble for reading Wikileaks): http://wikileaks.fi/cable/2009/05/09TRIPOLI386.html. |
Mr. Ali al-Essawi was born in Benghazi, Libya, in 1966. He is now the National Council's representative for foreign affairs. He was previously Minister for Economy and Trade.
France has announced contemplating targeted air strikes on military depots so that Ghaddafi cannot anymore bomb the rebels, and it is prepared to go it alone in this instance (Link in French). France has moved ahead of (and against) the European Union which, at the time of writing, is rumored to think about a similar recognition soon, but this has not happened yet.
The Libyan representatives requested from France to:
- jam Libyan military communications;
- destroy Gadaffi's bunker;
- neutralize the three airports used by the Libyan air force to fly bombing aircrafts and bring in mercenaries;
- to recognize the opposition in the form of the Libyan Transitional National Council; and
- to impose a no-fly zone.
France will propose the no-fly zone, without much hope of gaining consent of the UN Security Council members. The potential lack of this agreement may explain the decision of France to go it alone in attacking Gadafi's military targets.
One should not loose aim of the fact that the above decisions may also be prompted by a consideration of its own problematic internal affairs. President Sarkozy is at an all-time low popularity in opinion polls within one year of new presidential elections. He has been widely criticized for his gross mistakes, and those of his ministers, in the handling of foreign policy, particularly with regard to Tunisia's and Egypt's revolutions.
A bankrupt friendAnother aspect is that France was buying much oil from Libya and will need to find other sources of supplies, regardless of the reassuring comments of EU Ministers who claim there should not be scarcities in Europe (or France). The prices of petroleum products, benzine, oils, gasoline, have sky-rocketed in France which is in a dire economic climate where unrest by an increasingly poor population is probably not far from thinkable if things get any worse.
The importance of France's statement is witnessed by the declarations, later in the same day, of Gaddafi's son, Saif, who is now vowing all out war against the protesters (source: Reuters). Saif Gaddafi's (Astro Geo Chart, Helio Chart)
Libya is preparing full-scale military action to crush its rebellion and will not surrender even if Western powers intervene in the conflict, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's most prominent son said on Thursday.
"It's time for liberation. It's time for action. We are moving now," Saif al-Islam Gaddafi told Reuters in an interview.
Asked if the government was preparing to step up its military campaign, he said: "Time is out now. It's time for action ... We gave them two weeks (for negotiations)."
Speaking in unusually tough language, the London-educated younger Gaddafi said Libya would defeat the rebels, even if Western powers intervened.
"We will never ever give up. We will never ever surrender. This is our country. We fight here in Libya," said Saif al-Islam, who has been described as the Western-friendly face of Libya.
"The Libyan people, we will never ever welcome NATO, we will never ever welcome Americans here. Libya is not a piece of cake."
UnquoteAnother pointer to the importance of this recognition can be seen by comparing Nicolas Sarkozy's birth charts (geo, helio) with the birth charts of the new Libya (further down).
We are therefore truly witnessing the birth of a new nation. The astrological chart for this event is here:

Pisces, Gemini and Taurus - a caring, fun and placid young countryAs a Pisces with Gemini rising and Moon in Taurus, the new Libya looks like it is going to be a caring country which will be able to forgive some of the mistakes of the past regime (Pisces). The rising sign in Gemini shows the rising of the youth which made this revolution possible. The Taurean Moon, exalted in this sign, show that it will be able to use its wealth for the benefit of its people. It will not all be easy (tightly-packed stellium of war and unrest in Xth), but with well meaning friends (XIth house) and even its once hidden ennemies (Moon on cusp of the XIIth), it should be able to become the new little Switzerland of Arabia.
A cruel, but mercifully quick civil warOn the whole, a rather good chart, after a period of bloody and cruel (Mars Pisces) war, as promised by Saif Gaddafi. Intervention by foreign powers (Neptune, IXth), will not be overt but will be decisive (rule of IXth Uranus in Xth). So although it is said that France is likely to go it alone to help the young republic, it would not be surprising to discover one day that it did so with tacit agreement of the United States - and possibly some trade deal/financial benefit to France (mutual reception between Mars and Jupiter). The coming opposition between Jupiter and Saturn in the next few months hints at lengthy difficulties. However, this opposition is already finished in the helio chart, so the worst has probably already happened as far as injured and dead are concerned. The difficulties are going to concern the restructuring of Libyan society after this short civil war.
In the heliocentric chart, look at the position of Mars, also in Pisces, exactly conjunct the MidHeaven, if one takes account of houses in helio charts. There again, it's also in mutual reception with Jupiter, hinting at the possibility that although war is ahead with many dead, it will be quickly over, once the young Republic has convinced its friends to help. The opposition between Jupiter and Saturn is gone in the helio chart and will not come back, taking away the possibility of a protracted conflict.
Twin countries?One might want to note that in the helio chart, Uranus has just ingressed in Aries. As a hint, an Indian astrologer once taught me that the very first minutes of Aries (helio), within the first 30 minutes of arc, as is the case here, hints strongly at the possibility of twin birth. Which is exactly what is happening here: there are now two Libyas. How long will it be before this young new Republic unites with the rest of the country is another lengthy and debatable subject altogether. If I was to apply the rule of the first aspecting planets, one finds Mercury quincunx Saturn, with an orb of 2°07'59", from fixed to cardinal, so it could mean 2 months or so, or if one takes major aspects, there's a Venus sextile Saturn, from mutable to cardinal, with an orb of 4°03'17" of arc, so possibly some 4 months. However, this technique is wide open for debate...
As a matter of interest, have a look at the following charts and see how they combine with the chart of this new Republic:
- Moammar Gaddafi - geo - helio
- Saif Gaddafi - geo - helio
- Libya Independence - geo - helio
- Nicolas Sarkozy - geo - helio
I've got quite a few dates and times for relevant charts that should make the study of this event rather interesting. I'll be posting some more on the subject, sometimes towards the middle of next week (Inch'Allah).
