Mexico's horoscope is set for the signing ceremony for the new constitution on January 31, 1917 (4:42 pm CST; Querataro, Mexico), an event that deposed the oppressive power of the monarchy and Catholic Church. The Sun in Aquarius reflects the human rights ideals of Mexico, with a Mars-Uranus conjunction also in Aquarius describing the truly revolutionary shift toward democracy.
However, until recently, only one party has controlled Mexico's government. Vicente Fox was elected in July 2000 as Mexico was experiencing its first Uranus Return, re-kindling its revolutionary idealism. Now, transiting Neptune — the planet of fraud and uncertainty – is conjunct Mexico's Uranus, putting a fog over the entire process. At the same time, transiting Saturn is opposing Mexico's Sun, perhaps indicating the judgmental role of the Federal Electoral Tribunal* in deciding the outcome.
Saturn goes on to oppose Mexico's Mars-Uranus conjunction in August and early September as the Federal Election Tribunal weighs its final decision. Under this kind of planetary stress, we can expect plenty of unrest. Progressing Mexico's horoscope shows that the progressed Sun squares the natal Sun, and progressed Mars is conjunct Jupiter – all supportive of tremendous upheaval over the coming year.
