Gilad Shalit Freed

Gilad Shalit Freed

October 18, 2011 (Day 291, Coup de Grace):  Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, was freed in a prisoner exchange between Israel and Hamas for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners.  Shalit was freed after five years in captivity by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as proof that the Lord still keeps His word.  As Shalit arrived at the Karem Shalom border crossing and was handed over to Israel by Egypt at 8:28 AM.  The sign of Libra was rising over the horizon with the Morning Star, for a herald of celebration, and the Savior Planet, for being delivered or rescued.  Shalit was taken to Tel Nof Air Force Base where he met Prime Minister Netanyahu and his family.

Shalit, a tank crewman, was captured by Palestinian terrorists on June 25, 2006.  Eight terrorists tunneled into Israel near Karem Shalom and split into three groups, symbolizing Cosmic, Political, and Ecumenical Babylon of a Satanic attack.  One group fired on Shalit's tank with its four man crew.  The tank commander and one crewman was killed.  Shalit and another soldier were injured, and Shalit was taken prisoner.

The name, Gilad, corresponds to Gilead, which was the name of the pillar of stones that Laban erected as a witness of his peace deal with Jacob (Gen 31:47).  Jacob's dealings with Laban certainly bears resemblance to Israel's negotiations with the Palestinians.  One Israeli soldier was exchanged for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners.  And the name Shalit corresponds to a domineering master, ruler, or dictator.  Joseph was called by that name as the ruler of Egypt (Gen 42:6).  Shalit was born in the sign of Leo, corresponding to a king, or ruler.

Star Chart

Gilad Shalit Freed Chart, 10-18-11The Chart at the time Gilad Shalit was freed contains a Mystic Rectangle and a Plow.  A Mystic Rectangle contains two pairs of opposition which must be balanced.  The pairs of opposition in the Chart included Shalit's family in opposition to the terrorist attackers, and Egypt, the facilitator, in opposition to the Israeli federal judiciary and state department.  A Plow is the sign of intensive suffering, like being plowed under.  The point of the Plow was the Red Planet in Cancer, for a captive.

The Ascendant Sign was Libra with the Morning Star, for a herald, or trumpet, as a sign of celebration.  Also in Libra was the Savior Planet, for being delivered or rescued.  The Descendant was Aries, corresponding to Egypt i. e. going down to Egypt for help (Isa 31:1).  The Almighty God Planet in Aries symbolized a commander or captain.  Shalit was turned over to the Israeli Defense Force in Egypt and he later met the Prime Minister, who has the power of Commander-in-Chief.

Midheaven was in Leo, for a government redeemer.  And the Bottom of Heaven, IC, was in Aquarius, for bad news.  The bad news about the prisoner swap was that 1,027 Palestinians were also to be released.  And the swap was delayed when one of the women prisoners refused to go to Gaza.  Aquarius corresponds to Gaza and to Florida where a tropical weather system was flooding the southern part of the state.  Also in Aquarius was the Redeemer Planet, for the good news of being redeemed from slavery.

The Sun was in Virgo, for the clothing of Virgin Israel in the Tribulation.  Also in Virgo was the God of the Covenants Planet, for a caretaker.  Shalit underwent medical tests upon his release.

The Mediator Planet was in Pisces, for the Throne of Grace.  The Lord Jesus Christ on the Throne of Grace in Heaven oversaw the prisoner release.

Mystic Rectangle

The Mystic Rectangle balances two pairs of opposition.  The ends of the crossbars of the Mystic Rectangle corresponded to the players in the prisoner release.  The Moon in Gemini symbolized the family of Shalit.  Israel paid the high price for his release because the whole nation regards him as its son.  The opposition of the Moon was the Last Adam in Sagittarius, for the enemy (terrorist) attackers who captured Shalit and held him captive.

On one end of the other crossbar was the Almighty God in Aries, for a Commander in Egypt.  This symbolized Egypt as the facilitator as well as the Israeli Defense Force commanders who accepted Shalit when he was released.  Aries corresponds to Egypt.  At the other end of the opposition was the conjunction of the Morning Star and Savior Planets in Libra.  Libra corresponds to the Israeli federal judiciary and state department, who both played a role in the prisoner swap.  The Morning Star in Libra symbolizes a herald, including a trumpet for heralding and other musical instruments for celebration, and singing and dancing.  The Israeli's celebrated Shalit's release.  And the Savior Planet in Libra symbolizes being delivered or rescued.

Gilad Shalit Birth Chart

Gilad Shalit Birth ChartGilad Shalit was born on August 28, 1986, where 28 is for a Cosmic Stronghold and 86 is for the Arab persecution of the Jew.  The time of birth is taken to be 3:50 AM, but since that has not been verified, the Ascendant and Midheaven may not be accurate.

The Birth Chart of Gilad Shalit contains a Grand Cross, which is the most intensive sign of suffering in a Chart.  It corresponds to capital punishment and going to the cross.

The Sun Sign, the best indicator of a person, was in Leo, corresponding to the glory of a king.  Shalit's release was championed by the Prime Minister and the highest levels of Israeli government.  The name, Shalit, means domineering master or ruler, corresponding to a king or government.  The Sun was in conjunction with the Savior Planet, for a royal son.  Shalit was like a royal son to Israel.

The Moon was in Taurus, for a royal court, corresponding to the Israeli government ministers who worked to secure his release.

There were four pairs of planets in the Chart.  A pair symbolizes a witness, as in court, and corresponds to Shalit's future as a famous prisoner.  The pairs also symbolize the Flood, which corresponds to Palestinian lawlessness and the Prostitute of Babylon as ruler of prisons.

The Almighty God Planet was in Aquarius, for a broadcast of news heard around the world.  This happened when Shalit was freed.  Aquarius corresponds to Gaza.

The Morning Star was in Virgo, for a star.  Shalit became a star though his captivity.  Nearby was the Last Adam in Libra, for a proxy or substitute.  Shalit's release was secured by the Palestinian prisoners released as a substitute for him.

The two planets in Scorpius are bad signs and symbolize personal flaws.  These flaws can be overcome with God's help.  The God of the Covenants in Scorpius symbolizes a false prophet, or apostate.  Examples, include the lies of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.  And the Mediator Planet in Scorpius symbolizes a deceiver, fraud, cheat, or charlatan.

In Aquarius, the Redeemer Planet symbolizes being redeemed from the enemy.  The planet was also in Aquarius at the time of Shalit's release today.  And the Red Planet in Aquarius symbolizes suffering from a gang or group, such as the Hamas terrorists who captured Shalit.


Gilad Shalit's name originated from Biblical words that came true in his capture and release.  Gilad is the name Gilead, which means a pillar or monument of stones as a witness (Gen 31:47-53).  Gilad was freed on October 18, where 18 signifies a pillar, which symbolizes historical impact.  The name Gilead came from the argument between the worldly Laban and Jacob, which corresponds to the argument between Israel and the Palestinians.  The name Shalit is the name for Joseph as the "ruler" of Egypt.  Shalit was born in the Sign of Leo, for a king or government ruler, and he was released into the hands of Egypt, the facilitator.

The Lord handled the release of Shalit as evidenced by the stars overhead.  Shalit was released as Libra ascended with the Morning Star, for a herald, music, and celebration, and the Savior Planet, for being delivered or rescued.  The configurations were a Mystic Rectangle and a Plow.  The Mystic Rectangle was shaped like Shalit's tank that was attacked when he was taken prisoner, and the two pairs of opposition corresponded to the players in the prisoner exchange.  The Plow pointed to the Red Planet in Cancer, for a captive.  The Mediator Planet was in Pisces, for the Throne of Grace from which the Lord Jesus Christ gave Shalit his freedom along with a thousand Palestinians who were bent on destroying the freedom of Israel.
