Mundane Horoscope of Brazil:

     Brazil: Adaptation of New Constitution, 1988

Source: For the "Portuguese claim possession, 1500" chart: Campion, "The Book of World Horoscopes," p. 99, citing astrologer Antonio Harres; chart corrected to Porto Seguro longitude / latitude.


Additional information: "In 1494, the Treaty of Tordesilhas divided the Americas between Spain and Portugal. Portugal gained the right to claim land in what is now eastern Brazil. Portugal claimed possession of Brazil on April 22, 1500, when the Portuguese fleet commander Pedro Alvares Cabral landed on the coast. The Portuguese called certain trees that they found there brazilwoods because their wood had the color of a glowing ember, called brasa in Portuguese. They named the country after the trees." World Book Encyclopedia, CD-Rom edition, 1997.

"Brazilian independence was proclaimed by Emperor D. Pedro I in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The event came to be known as the 'Ipiranga cry,' because it took place near the Iparanga River on Sept 7, 1822, between 16:00 and 17:00 (LMT) in Sao Paulo." Brazilian astrologer Nilsa Gorey, private correspondence, 23 August 2000.

"Brazil proclaimed its independence from Portugal [...] on 7 September 1822. The event ... took place between 4:00 and 5:00 P.M. LMT ..." Campion, "The Book of World Horoscopes," (Second Edition, 1996), p. 99.

There is a strong movement among Brazilian astrologers in favor of a 4:47 P.M. time for this chart. This is based on historic accounts of the whereabouts of the emperor on that particular day, the time he arrived at Ipiranga river, etc., and is supported by the feeling shared by many local astrologers that Brazil is more likely to be portrayed by a Pisces ascendant rather than by an Aquarius ascendant.

Source for the "Proclamation of the Republic Chart" (Nov 15, 1889; Rio de Janeiro; 3:00 P.M): Edgar Carone, "A Republica Velha (Evolucao Politica)." Editora Difel, 1971, p. 8. The new government (the result of a coup d'etat) was inaugurated at 11:00 A.M. at Rio de Janeiro (then the capital), and the proclamation took place at 3:00 P.M. The second chart features an Aries ascendant: perhaps a fitting portrait of the military coup. Although Brazil has had several constitutions, this event totally changed the form of government; formerly it was an empire, and now it became a republic, with elections, etc. (Again, thanks to Nilsa Gorey for passing along all the above information.)

"On 5 October 1988 Brazil adapted a new constitution which represented a significant break from past procedure and practice. The signing of the constitution, which took place at 3:49 P.M., was timed from a live television broadcast by Antonio Harres in Rio de Janeiro." Campion, "The Book of World Horoscopes," (Second Edition, 1996), p. 99. Chart is set for the capital, Brasilia.
