How refreshing to read a previous tweet by Billy Butterfield shouting out that 'Republicans Are Reactionaries' and not Conservatives, so I retweeted it today.

Using Political Astrology, I'd have to echo Billy's sentiment for in Mundane charts, Republicans--not just the Tea Party faction of the party but the group as a whole--are signified by rebellious Uranus, the revolutionary, now lurching through Mars-ruled Aries (sign of war, opposition, cussedness, and a selfish me-first mindset), what Reinhold Ebertin describes as fanatics acting under "blind zeal" and using "violence"; they have an "urge to strive for reform" and are stubborn, "dreamy enthusiasts and Utopians" and that IDs them as acolytes of the Francis Bacon/Adam Weishaupt crowd of illuminated miscreants and perverts. Their "Great Plan" has progressed through the centuries and now shows itself as it truler is at its core--a devouring, undermining influence against civilization.
(You'll note the Republican focus on women's bodies: they worship the feminine in an unhealthy way. Pope-ishness now rises and helps uplift archetypes such as Isis, Lilith, Innana, and the rest of the haggish icons (hags and shrews, when their energies are perverted by mortal men who think themselves 'gods' on earth...puh! Plus, in transit, Uranus burst into US natal 4th house of Domestic Scene in 2010 at Aries Point (AP = our national IC, The Drain)--get outta my house, Utopians! And take your socio-pathic 'vision' with you.)
So! Since Republicans are not Saturnian 'Conservatives' nor are they 'conservative' what could be their modus operandi? It's Damn the Torpedoes, 'burn down the house' to achieve 'success at all and any cost' for Machiavelli would agree this is the winning hand in Politics (though I've always said that cheating isn't winning, it's stealing). Yet with Saturn now traversing Scorpio (Mars-Pluto) and the intense, forceful, big money, corporate vibes contained therein, they have manager/lawmaker Saturn's status quo influence within them as well for everyone and every group (and event) acts under influences of all the signs at all times.
Then we look to the Democratic Party as having the same 12-sign opportunities to shine or to disrupt and its natal link to the American people is primarily through US natal Moon 27AQ10, We the People. The party acts under motherly vibes as we see with the charge by the GOP that the Democrats are the "nanny party." Well, yes, actually the Astrology of the matter supports this; plus, the Republican Party's natal Sun (ego; life goal, purpose, essence) conjoined in perpetuity to US natal Sun in Cancer (13Can19) is 'daddy' and everyone knows 'his' love must be conditional. Then lo and behold! Fixed Star Sirius (aka, Isis) conjoins both Suns.
As you see, there is deep symbolism here--beware! With Astrology you are able to lift the rock of Politics and peek in amazement at the dark, squirmy creatures and the secrets that scurry underneath!
America's natal Sun Cancer-Moon Aquarius blend may be of interest to a few readers if you don't have the info already: this is a Water (intuitional plane; emotions, 'gut feelings', but also business and home loving; Cancer is a tribal sign, and this Caucasian tribe o'mine (with some bohemian gypsy and Cherokee tossed in, I'm told) must be jittery in some quarters, elated in others at the sight of today's video/TV views of the joyous tribal celebrations of the life of Nelson Mandela, their primary icon of heroism and rescue from oppression!
As the psychopaths at least partially described by Fixed Star Denebola (to go against society), the miscreants we discussed above long for nothing if not for conflict and war--global chaos and war. In Politics, Denebola echoes the call of Uranus, America's planet of war, revolution, and disruption. And yet look at the Sistine Chapel's dome for the Sky God, Ouronos, also provides humankind with brilliant ideas, genius, and happy surprises--and my own 10th house Uranus in Gemini prefers that, thanks! Oh, and a sovereign America--without the corrupt Machiavellians who pull the global strings of discord and misery to the masses.
Highly recommended reading: Dipali Desai's article on the current, extended stay of Mars in Libra.
Though the birth data is Conflicted/Unverified (Rodden Rating DD for 'Dirty Data') you may wish to view the natal horoscope and details concerning Nelson Mandela available at AstroDataBank. See what you think about the chart's veracity.
