TYRANTS AND REVOLUTIONS(2)

Compared to Tunisia and Egypt, Libya’s has been the longest, the most bloody and repressive uprising. Gadaffi is imprinting the profile of his extravagant and uncanny personality. As a planet associated to the collective unconscious, Uranus means to provoke a deep impact on the whole of mankind. Indeed, the perception of dictatorships and personal style of governments will change radically for the future generations. Personally, l have the intuition that this is going to be one of the most important mass movements of our times. Events and disturbances during this period will follow an Uranian pattern, a sort of unpredictable rhythm with peaks of violence, massacres, calm, unexpected agitations and, eventually a surprising resolution.



Gadaffi’s pompous and clownish personality epitomize the Uranian movement of these historical transformations, he was born on June 7, 1942 in Sirte, Libya, unknown time. He has a stellium, a series of planets in Gemini: Uranus conjuncts Saturn in the first degrees of the sign; Mercury and Jupiter conjunct in the last degrees, the Sun in exactly in the middle of Gemini, the sign of duality and versatility. Colonel Gadaffi is more than versatile, he dyes his hair, uses platform shoes because he is very sensitive about his height, he wears weird revolutionary outfits, attires himself with long blue Bedouin robs, or travels with a team of cute and foxy female body guards dressed extravagantly and wearing thigh-high boots. Wow! Very much the image of a villain in a 007 movie.

Tragically enough, Libyan citizens cannot enjoy the spectacle, Gadaffi keeps them in poor living conditions, any rebellion is drowned in blood, ends in a massacre, prisoners are abominably treated. Maybe so much air in Gadaffi´s chart prevents him from expressing the minimum compassion towards human suffering. Although feared, he certainly is not at all loved by his people; even the Libyan army detests him; that is why he only trusts his especial army of mercenaries gathered from other African countries, they can shoot Libyans mercilessly. The association he has in his chart with Mars (in Cancer) conjunct Pluto in  Leo squaring Venus (relations and love), has pushed him to take revenge on his people, he feels that nobody can love him. Ronald Leagan's Pluto was in Gemini conjunct to Gadaffi’s Mercury and Jupiter; Regan’s bombing of Libya (Gadaffi’s house and headquarters) was a mistake, he helped him to justify himself and then consolidate his power.

On the international scale, Colonel Gadaffi has used the incredible oil wealth to finance international terrorism. This is Pluto Mars, but it could also be that his Gemini planets are in the 12th house, but we do not know the time birth. We have all heard about the Lockerbie attack with 270 people dying with a bomb against the plane. With a typical Gemini switch of attitude, he suddenly decided to compensate with lots of money the families of the victims. However this is nothing compared with his other deeds.  He has supported the Italian Red Brigades, the Baader-Meinhof Geman terrorists, the ETA, his support to Carlos the Jackal; the list is too long. With Saturn (power, disguises, repression) conjunct Uranus (revolutions, innovation),  Gadaffi disguises his thirst of blood and power under a fake revolutionary discourse. But now Uranus is squaring his Jupiter and approaching his Moon. This tyrant is doomed, even if he manages to maintain his regime for a while, his mind and body will betray him.

Tyrants’ capacity to lure the masses, as well as the skill to seduce intellectuals and artists, has always intrigued me. Many years ago, l met an old Spanish Republican lady fighting for human rights, l still remember the sparkle in her eyes when she spoke with admiration about Gadaffi, at that time he was an icon of the left, the new hero who had written a Green Book opening a new path for mankind.

Tyrants and monsters have always captivated brilliant people; even geniuses as Jung or the philosopher Heidegger were once enthralled by Hitler. When a charismatic leader personifies forces from the collective unconscious, it does not depend on how intelligent we are to become aware of the possible dangers; it is a matter of common sense (Saturn and the Earthy signs). In these times of celebrities and media spectacles, we need to keep grounded on the Earth, we need the wisdom of artisans and peasants to preserve a sound mind. (the end)
