With another hearing today to set bail and possibly be released under house arrest, now-resigned IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been denied diplomatic immunity by the US.
In my files there are two noon horoscopes for the International Monetary Fund (aka, the "Fund.") The first is set for December 27, 1945 when it was formally organized and 29 countries signed the agreement (Bretton Woods, N. H.), and March 1, 1947 when IMF operations began.
Transiting Pluto now transforms, deconsructs, and brings power and control issues to the IMF's natal Sun (1945); midpoint pictures for December 27, 1945 are descriptive of the sort of worldly power and wealth they wield: Sun/Pluto = Jupiter ($), and the Illuminati pair of Uranus/Neptune pointing to manipulative Pluto which often signifies rapists, plunderers, and saboteurs.
Sun/Pluto = Jupiter: successful striving for power; the urge for expansion and the acquiring of wealth.
Uranus/Neptune = Pluto: abandoning resistance; calamities; losses. (Ebertin.)
The 1947 chart shows Sun 10Pis17 (noon): '11Pis" = "Men Seeking Illumination"; Moon @ '28Gemini' = "Bankruptcy" (what the IMF preys upon - er, I mean...helps nations with.)
In both charts, nebulous Neptune is in Libra: 1945 @ 8Lib34, and 1947 @ 10Lib12; transiting Saturn, bringer of loss and restriction when accountability and responsibility have been ignored or dissed, now sits upon the IMF's Neptune (also a planet of loss) in the 1947 horoscope...the 'grim face of reality' transit. The IMF brings 'grim reality' to nations whose balance sheets are in trouble; for DSK, 'the sheets' are in trouble for entirely different reasons.
The Strauss-Kahn Family
The father of "DSK", as he is familiarly known, is Gilbert Strauss-Kahn, a member in the Grand Orient de France, the largest and oldest Masonic organization in Continental Europe (founded 1733), and a major instigator behind the French Revolution.
In France on December 20, 1781, the Grand Orient Masons and the Illuminati combined into one Order; their alliance was sealed in July 1782 at the Congres de Wilhelmsbad. The conference was attended by Masons, Martinistes, and representatives of secret societies in Europe, Asia, and America. As we would expect, attendees were sworn to total secrecy. (source: The Secret History of the West, N. Hagger.)
Click for a public list of the attendees (though you won't see the name 'Rothschild' mentioned for Jews were admitted to the lodges later - the resolution to allow them in was passed at the 1781 conference.
This ancient history is important because it is part of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's personal history although I doubt any mention of what lurks behind his mask - and by extension, the mask of the IMF - will be forthcoming as the sexual assault/attempted rape investigation and possible criminal trial goes forward in New York.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn was born in Paris, France on April 25, 1949 with Sun in Taurus and Moon in Aries; natal Midas 19Tau12 conjoins n Mercury which is otherwise unaspected; Jupiter 1AQ16 conjoins Fixed Star Aquila, the Eagle (he has that beaky look and raptor's gaze) and his natal Pluto/Chiron midpoint (plutocracy; oppression; corporatism; racism) is now transited by Saturn.
