Dominique Strauss-Kahn, director of the IMF, with a birth chart depicted above, according to Astro-Data Bank and Astrotheme, is arrested in New York on Saturday 14th, for allegedly raping a maid of the Hotel he was staying. According to the newspapers, he was staying in a 2.100 euros a night suite.
Two nights before the Scorpio Full Moon, which happened to be in a tight T-square to Neptune. Now we all know that the previous 2 nights before a Full Moon are the strongest in expressing the energies of the Lunation.
Neptune the focal planet of this T-square which happens to be in the Scorpio-Taurus angle, we can easily conclude that strong sexual (Scorpio) fantasies (Neptune) are in the air, as well as some kind of secret (Scorpio) affairs.
If we look at his birth chart the stellium of planets in Taurus including Sun-Mars (in Aries) with Moon in Aries, all indicates an impulsive nature, self-centered attitude. Pluto from the 1st house in quite a tight square to Venus, remind us of Persephane-Hades myth.
As it happens, this tragic week end, the Full Moon in Scorpio was making an aspect to that Mars (The Sun in quincunx to natal Mars) his sexuality, at the same time that by transit, Mars in Taurus was sitting right on his natal Sun. Pluto from the 6th hse, in trine to natal Venus and in Square to the MC. Hi career has greatly suffered as he was forced to resign as the head of the IMF. Also in opposition to Pallas in the 12th hse, the goddess that most rejects rape.
Is funny how this things manifest in the birth-chart with so much accuracy.
Most people in France think he is the victim of a conspiracy, but as an astrologer I cannot be blind to these configurations in his chart.
Which ever way, he is in his journey to Hades underworld, having spent 4 or 5 nights in Jail, after being denied bail by a woman judge. Yet today, in a second hearing he has been granted bail, a very expensive one by the way. Can’t wait to see what happens in the trial as he has been officially charged with 7 counts of sex crimes.
His lawyers are suggesting that it was consensual sex, but I find it hard to believe that this maid, who is working, felt suddenly attracted to a 60 years old man, coming out of the shower, without him offering her or forcing her to do it. But that is just my opinion, we’ll have to see what happens, but on Monday, the news that Gadhafi was giving Viagra to his soldiers as a weapon for rape, also reminded me of the power of a Scorpian Full Moon.
We must not forget that Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto, which is the planets that loves bringing the dirty laundry out in the open, especially of powerful men, as the transit of Pluto continues through Capricorn!
