Tripoli Falls to Anti-Gaddafi Rebels

Tripoli Falls to Anti-Gaddafi Rebels

August 22, 2011 (Day 234, Division of the Land):  Tripoli has fallen to anti-Gaddafi rebels.  Three of Gaddafi's sons, Saif Al-Islam, Saadi, and Mohammed, were captured.  The Presidential Guard, 32nd Brigade, commanded by Gadhafi’s son Khamis, melted away before the advancing rebels.  By 1:30 AM Tripoli time (2330 GMT), there was ecstatic celebration in Green Square.  Although pockets of resistance remained, Tripoli quickly fell under rebel control.

Rebels took control of Green Square, the symbolic center of Tripoli, as the eye of Tropical Storm Irene passed over St. Croix.  The Storm appeared as a horse, the symbol of war and a male phallic reversionist.  Irene is Greek for peace and prosperity.  Irene associated with St. Croix (the Cross) corresponds to the Peace of Christ as a Problem Solving Device (John 16:33).

Star Chart

Tripoli Fall Chart, 8-22-11The Chart at the time of taking Green Square in the fall of Tripoli is for 12:30 AM (which is 1:30 AM Tripoli time (2330 GMT)).  The Chart contains a Castle, a Grand Cross, and a Coffin.  The Castle is the home of a king, who rules over loyal subjects.  It symbolizes the dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi.  The Grand Cross symbolizes intensive suffering, like going to the Cross.  This also corresponds to the eye of Tropical Storm Irene over St. Croix at the time.  And a Coffin is for burying the dead.

The Sun was in Leo, for the king of glory, symbolizing the glory of Col. Gaddafi.  But Leo was at the Bottom of Heaven, for a king's death, symbolizing the defeat of Gaddafi.  And the Sun was in conjunction with the Morning Star, for the herald of the new king.  This corresponds to the saying, "The king is dead.  Long live the king!"  The Savior Planet nearby in Cancer symbolized the Lord protector, which corresponded to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) air and sea support for the invasion of Tripoli.

Midheaven was in Aquarius at the time, corresponding to notorious good news, which was associated with celebration in the streets of Tripoli.  And the Redeemer Planet in Aquarius symbolized the redemption of Libya from the Gaddafi dictatorship.  Aquarius also symbolized NATO naval support, which provided support for a landing force from the sea and tactical air support.

The Moon was rising in Taurus, for a royal court.  The Gaddafi dynasty could be considered a royal court.  It is being replaced by the new Libya Transition Council.  Taurus, corresponding to Great Britain, and Gemini, corresponding to France, were rising.  Great Britain and France were leaders of NATO military support.  The Red Planet was in Gemini, for a bloody witness or bloody bridegroom.  Political prisoners were released by the rebels during the invasion of Tripoli.  These prisoners had been suffering under the hand of the Gaddafi regime.

The Last Adam was descending in Sagittarius, for an enemy attack that was falling.

The God of the Covenants Planet was in Virgo, for a caretaker, corresponding to the emergency medical workers who treated the injured.


There were celebrations in the streets of Tripoli as the rebels entered Green Square shortly after midnight on Aug. 22, 2011, Day 234, where 22 is for cursing, and 34 is for the division of the land.  The division of the land is associated with national boundaries.  The rebels entered Green Square as the eye of Tropical Storm Irene crossed St. Croix (the Cross).  Irene is Greek for peace.  Peace associated with the Cross corresponds to the Spiritual Peace of Christ that was given to the disciples of Christ to help them handle the trauma of His death on the Cross.
These things I have communicated to you in order that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you have tribulation; but take courage, I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
The Lord determines the rise and fall of national leaders.  Gaddafi's regime crumbled in Tripoli on August 22, for cursing.  Following Egypt, a symbol of the world, the fall of Gaddafi's Libya regime is another major defeat for the King of the South, the pan Arabic block, on the World Stage.  It is an opportunity for freedom of the people to choose their own way without government interference.
