Venezuelan politician and popular president of Venezuela, inaugurated on 2 February 1999 at 10:45 AM in Caracas. A military overthrow began on 11 April 2002, when oil strikers began to riot in Caracas. The police fired into the crowd and killed 14 demonstrators and the military promptly installed Pedro Carmona as president, a coup that has not been associated with aid from the U.S. government. (Inauguration on 12 April 2002, 5:51 PM, Caracas.) Two days later, 14 April 2002, 4:35 AM, Chavez was reinstalled as president.

The next night, several Venezuelan generals were killed in a helicopter accident. By mid-June, huge rallies for and against the leftist president jammed Caracas and other Venezuelan cities. Citizens were quoted that "that crazy man has dragged us into political anarchy and economic disaster," emphasizing the bitter divisions in a nation that has the largest oil reserves outside the Middle East but where 80% of the people live below the poverty line.

On 1 July 2011, he announced that on 10 June he had undergone surgery in Cuba for a pelvic abscess. He added that during his recuperation, cancerous cells had been identified and stated that he intended to remain in power, fully capable of the job even while undergoing treatment for cancer. He died on 5 March 2013 at 4:25 PM in Caracas at age 58.

Source Notes

Georgiana quotes Vania Norberto of Brazil for a time of 17:10 from Chavez himself to a Venezuelan astrologer. Monica Dimino, who practiced astrology in Venezuela for many years and retains a huge clientele there wrote: "Hugo Chavez, born July 28, 1954, at 3:30 AM in Sabaneta, Venezuela (8N46, 69W56). The date is well known and established. The hour was given to me by a Chavez acquaintance back in the early 90's when he was arrested for a failed coup. At the time, I was told that Chavez had revealed his birth hour to her because he wanted her to consult an astrologer for him. I did not accept that request because I was dealing with family health issues at the time."

In December 2007 Sy Scholfield quotes a time of 4 AM from Orlando Albornoz's book, "Academic Populism: Higher Education Policies Under State Control" (Caracas: Universidad Central de Venezuela, 2005), p. 719: "In one unforgettable opportunity on state TV, the President's mother had to explain the time and the circumstances surrounding his birth. By the way, he was born at 4 am, in the middle of unusual rains and winds."

Carlos Dum, astrologer in Caracas, Venezuela, writes in an article [1] that he called Chavez' mother on the phone: "Luego de colgar a mi interlocutora, decidí llamar al número telefónico que me dieron con serial del interior del país donde tuve la suerte de ser atendido a la primera por la propia madre de Chávez, Doña Elena. Después de las debidas presentaciones y el motivo de la llamada, la pregunta: ¿A qué hora nació su hijo el candidato?... La misma, con voz suave y pausada respondió: “Yo de Huguito no recuerdo bien la hora de su nacimiento, pero si le puedo asegurar que nació entre las 03:00 y 05:00 de la madrugada”. (I do not remember the hour of his birth well, but I can assure you that is was between 3 and 5 am)."

Dum himself corrects the time to 3:25, and we leave it in the middle of the two-hour period, leaving an uncertainty of 1 hour. The Cancer ascendant lasts from 3:35 to 5:40.

In September 2022 Scholfield notes that Chavez gives "2 AM" quoted from his birth certificate in the book Hugo Chávez. Mi primera vida: Conversaciones con Hugo Chávez (Hugo Chavez. My First Life: Conversations with Hugo Chavez) by Ignacio Ramonet (Penguin Random House, 2014): "Mucha agua, mucha lluvia, y nazco el miércoles 28 de julio “a las dos de la madrugada”, dice la partida de nacimiento." (A lot of water, a lot of rain, and I was born on Wednesday, 28 July “at two in the morning”, says the birth certificate.).
