The horoscope of Dominique Strauss-Kahn

This week we have a t-square involving Venus in Cancer, Uranus in Aries, and Pluto in Capricorn. Uranus in Aries is the focal planet – which points to sudden events, exposure, dramatic turns and revelations specifically relating to relationships, both past and present.

In my Dutch week horoscope – published on Monday morning – I linked this t-square specifically to the Dominque Strauss-Kahn case. I suggested that more revelations were very likely – and indeed by late Monday evening the BBC had published a story of a new allegation against Dominque Strauss-Kahn of an attempted rape by a young French journalist Tristane Banon. So what made me think this?

Pluto can be connected to abuse of power, particularly when in Capricorn ruler of powerful institutions. Uranus – particularly in its role as focal planet – points to upsets. Aries – the Ram – could suggest the male member as well as a powerful sexual drive. Venus symbolizes the young woman. The American woman involved worked as a chamber maid. The root of the word “chamber-maid” is the Greek word “‘kamára” meaning something with an arched cover, room with a vaulted roof. Venus in Cancer – is suggestive of vulnerability – and has a link to the past. Cancer holds on to memories and the new charge relates to an event that took place 8 years ago!! The motives and credibility of both women who have come forward, are being subjected to a particularly Uranus/Pluto battering. “As above, so below”. One would have to be a fool, or telling the truth to put oneself through this.

The horoscope of Dominique Strauss-Kahn: April 25 1949,11.10 am Paris, France (accurate time, AA status, Astro-Databank)

The Moon in Aries here – is a member of the current t-square club. Dominique Strauss- Kahn is – you could say – up to his ears in it. His recent progressed New Moon (early May 2011) fell in the radix 12th house, in 4 degrees Cancer and square to radix Moon. Again – picking up on the current t-square energy. As astrologers we know that the 12th house always has a karmic element – so isn’t it fascinating that just as Dominque Strauss-Kahn reaches the pinnacle of his power – an inner sub-plot, a classical act of 12th house self undoing (???) – messes it all up for him. Unbelievable actually.

So… Does the horoscope indicate the possibility of violence towards women? Dominique Strauss-Kahn is born under the sign of comfort loving Taurus and he has  Venus in its own sign – so one would hardly think so. However, Venus does square Pluto which suggests that relationships can be a bit of a minefield at the very best of times. While drawn to powerful women on the one hand – there could also be a desire to dominate them on the other. Couple that with Pluto in the 1st house and Venus in the 10th then we have evidence of two very powerful themes in this life time.
