Yes, dear readers, that is exactly one half of the 84-year Uranus cycle. Back in 1969, the planet of revolution was at 3° Libra, today it’s at 3° Aries. When this happens to you and me, we call it a mid-life crisis.
And just to prove that the rebels have been poring over their astrological textbooks they called this push to Tripoli Operation Mermaid Dawn – pretty good for an event that takes place under a Venus- Neptune opposition. See this post to find out how Neptune ties in with the Arab Spring.
