Gadhafi Is Dead, Says Libyan Prime Minister

Libya's Fallen Leader: Moammar Gadhafi's Astrology

All eyes are on Libya and the death of longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi, as Libya's transitional Prime Minister confirmed that Gadhafi was killed early Thursday morning as he tried to escape from a convoy NATO warplanes had attacked. As the Libyan people rejoice over Gadhafi's death, let's take a look at Gadhafi's birth chart to learn more about the man who ruled Libya for 42 years -- and who was so despised by his own people.

We were initially surprised by what we found. Gadhafi's Sun, Jupiter and Saturn are all in Gemini. At first glance, this prominent presence of Gemini doesn't seem to fit his profile. Gemini is an airy, intellectual sign -- more about fairness and clear communication than fierceness and violence. But Gemini is also the sign of the Twins, and this is where contradiction comes into play.

Gadhafi has so much love and pride in and for his country (and/or himself) -- so much so that he's willing to take whatever steps necessary to hold onto it. One would think he would choose to honor his people, when in fact he's done the opposite. His Sun, plus the slower-moving planets' positions in the sign with "many faces" represents his struggle to control the country he quite literally loves to death.

It's also interesting to note that Gadhafi's communication planet Mercury is conjunct Jupiter, which means he sees the bigger picture, rather than its component parts. Perhaps he only sees Libya as a country he must rule because he has ruled it for so long, rather than the livelihood of its people. Societies transition over time, requiring change and progress. 

Attributing to Libya's unrest could also be planet Uranus, which takes 84 years to orbit the Sun. Gadhafi took his place as leader 42 years ago, which is half of 84, representing a mid-life crisis of sorts.

FIRST OFF GADDAFI WAS LOVED BY HIS PEOPLE AND HATED BY THE REBELS ONLY SECONDLY HE HASNT BEEN IN POWER OF THAT COUNTRY IN 8 YRS THIRD HE IS A VERY FAIR MAN UNLIKE THE UNITED STATES THEY HAVE FREE MEDICAL FREE EDUCATION AND THE MAN MADE RIVER HE WAS BUILDING THAT FOR HIS PEOPLE AND OTHER ARAB NATIONS. NOW I WILL SAY THIS ABOUT IRAN LYBIA AND WHAT EVER COUNTRY HANGS PEOPLE FOR THEIR CRIMES IF THE CRIME FITS THE PUNISHMENT THEN HANG THEM. WHY KEEP THEM IN A PRISON YRS BEING BEATEN RAPED ETC AND THEN PUT THEM TO DEATH 20 YRS LATER WHY WASTE THE MONEY IF DEATH IS THE PENALTY DO IT LIKE THAT THERE WOULD PROBABLY BE ALOT LESS MURDERS.GADDAFFI AND THE REST OF THE SO CALLED EVIL MIDDLE EAST IS NOT SO EVIL AS OUR UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. WE ARE ONLY LED TO BELIEVE THEY ARE WHEN IN FACT THE TERRORIST IS THE US GOVERNMENT
