Update Dec 1, 2017: in the following post I neglected to mention that voting planet Mercury's position @29Sag, a critical-crisis degree and will soon turn retrograde. Its critical condition (and just having left a conjunction with responsible Saturn--remember the old GOP mantra "fiscal responsibility"?) is apparently enough to stall Republican efforts to pass this bill though GOP leadership continues to shove in spite of the outline-of-a-bill massively increasing the national debt and the deficit.

Ho Ho Ho and Merry Christmas from the GOP! (suckers)
by Jude Cowell
Nov 30, 2017: If congressional Republicans have their (and ALEC's) way their bogus tax cut legislation to benefit the wealthy class and corporate interests will be voted on on Capitol Hill this evening or in the early hours of Friday December 1, 2017, last I heard. Looking for an astrological signature for this abomination against the American people, I stumbled upon a major opposition which will perfect on Friday December 1, 2017 at 5:05 am est--testy Mars opposing zealous Uranus.
Demands and arrogance tend to abound under this opposition along with the authoritarianism of those who are cantankerous, anti-traditional, argumentative, dangerous, and risk-taking--who like to 'throw caution to the wind' which is one of the ways the US Government of trust-breachers now treat our nation and which is currently shown most obviously by this corporate give-away legislation that Mr. Trump has called a Christmas gift to the American people.
Curiously, We the People's Moon in the Mars-Uranus opposition chart is @8Tau07 and, rounding up, we find an appropriate Sabian Symbol, "A Christmas Tree Decorated." M. E. Jones gives the negative side of this symbol as: "a desire to place people under obligation and to enjoy life's riches without payment in kind." That sounds about right--like the enslavement debt system we already suffer under and it will only get worse if this secretive bill passes and is signed into law by the bankrupt-in-chief. It may be yet another example of voting on a bill without knowing what's in it or it's even being completely written (the dupes and shills!) But their big political donations must keep piling in, right?
Now the Sabian Symbols for December 1's Mars and Uranus may enlighten us concerning under-the-surface conditions so let's list them with their negative potentials (since we're talking Politics and our saboteur-infiltrated Capitol Hill--maybe not so hidden after all):
Mars '25Libra': "Information in the Symbol of An Autumn Leaf...TACT: negative expression: fascination with the trivial and delight in unbridled fantasy" (this sounds like Trump to me though of course you may disagree!)
Uranus '25Aries': "A Double Promise" ('Reveals Its Inner and Outer Meanings')..."SENSIBILITY: negative expression: a lean to chicanery in all human relationships." Well, that part is self-explanatory, isn't it? Plus, it reminds me of the way Republicans keep using the 'we promised' pretext as if the public is awaiting this dicey bill with baited breath and would be so-o-o disappointed if it fails to pass when really it's the GOP's promise to wealthy donors that they are bound to the tightest for the sake of their careers.
Since the two planets are precisely opposite one another, each is at the Illumination Point degree of the other. Unbridled fantasy and chicanery are what we now expect from Trump, the GOP, and the corporate Democrats as they perform their Political Theater roles and further sell out the American people.
Also of interest is that Mars is the nose of a KITE pattern of high-flying success with maverick Uranus acting as the tail. Jupiter @11Sco09 rises in the chart denoting the bankers, financiers, political donors, and politicians who have large expectations from this lucrative bill--lucrative for them, that is.
Now perhaps mention of the MC of this chart, the Point of Goals and Aspirations--is in order for it is 22Leo20, the 'worst foot forward' or 'foot in mouth' degree (A. Louis). Also, this Mars-Uranus opposition chart when set for Capitol Hill uplifts the February 10, 2017 Lunar Eclipse (22Leo28) and in 10th house is The Great American Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @28Leo52 which conjoined the natal Ascendant of Donald Trump. Currently we are all under the influence of this eclipse which is in The Mother of All Eclipses Saros Series of 1 North with themes of 'unexpected events put pressure on relationships' and 'info is distorted and possibly false' (Predictive Astrology, B. Brady).
See February 2017 (Lunar Eclipse) events here where, among other things, Rex Tillerson and the now-departed Tom Price were confirmed for Trump's cabinet.
Other Chart Factors of Note
Tellingly, the Sun @9Sag24 conjoins royal Antares, a war star, with '10Sag' revealing "A Stage Symbolization of the Goddess of Opportunity"! Venus is oriental (last to rise before the Sun) @00Sag02 with '1Sag' the "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire" degree so full of meaning for America. Oriental Venus denotes those who deal with valuable things (ex: the lives and fortunes of the American people). At the chart's IC, the Foundation/Basis Point, is the midpoint of Pluto and Chiron, the plutocracy pair of oppression, exploitation, and primal violence. That violence has been threatened concerning this bill's successful passage would be no surprise to me if so.
Oh and did I mention that Pluto @17Cap48 is unaspected and thus representing the powerful foreign and other puppet masters in charge of Washington DC? You may recognize this degree as that of 1993's New World Order Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune and the midpoint picture transit Pluto forms @18Cap: the big picture demands a certain course of action, very little option to do otherwise (Tyl).
So perhaps you agree that, considering the lowering, degrading events since Donald Trump entered the Oval Office, America is being eclipsed across the globe and is being sabotaged from within. My fret today (which will be moot for now if the bill fails to pass) is that this ALEC/Koch-driven legislation will help make certain that our nation can never stand tall again.
Now, in case you missed it, here's a very brief video of the Capitol Hill Christmas Tree arriving on Monday November 27, 2017.
