Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil’s bombastic right-wing president, is eight percentage points behind in the polls for the October 2 election to Luiz Lula da Silva and swearing he’ll go if he loses despite having previously indicated he wouldn’t admit defeat. Whatever he says, there are fears of a constitutional crisis since he’s likely to react badly if he doesn’t win. If neither candidate receives more than 50 per cent of the vote, a run-off will be held on October 30.
His chart hints at dire setbacks with a bad-tempered response. His unpleasant Mars in Taurus opposition Saturn square Venus opposition Pluto is being rattled every which way this year and early next by tr Saturn which is exactly conjunct the Venus through this month – a hint of his unloved status. Worse tr Uranus is hammering away at his Mars/Saturn midpoint now till mid October which is catastrophic and moving on to a ‘shocking’ conjunction to his Mars in November – with more in 2023. Plus an undermining tr Neptune opposition his Saturn/Uranus midpoint over the second run off, if it gets to that which is not cheerful.
His opponent Lula, jailed in 2018 for corruption and in prison for eighteen months before the charges were annulled, was born 27 October 1945 and has his Scorpio Sun close to the October Solar Eclipse which does indicate a significant turning point for him. His Solar Arc Mars is approaching a conjunction to his Jupiter which will bring a surge of confidence though it is followed almost immediately by a dampening Solar Arc Saturn conjunct Jupiter so if he gets in there will be a short honeymoon before problems arise. His Solar Arc Jupiter is conjunct his South Node which could indicate over confidence and he’ll get lucky breaks in December. His chart isn’t showing unalloyed success but is certainly in better shape than Bolsonara’s.
The Brazil 7 September 1822 4.08 pm Piranga chart is hinting at a change of direction with tr Uranus conjunct the IC and moving into the 4th (start time being accurate) late this year and into 2023. There’s no real indication of a major outbreak of public unrest.
