Shooting Stars 24th – 25th October 2020

Astrological Football Predictions for West Ham vs Manchester City, Manchester Utd vs Chelsea, Liverpool vs Sheffield Utd and Aberdeen vs Celtic

This Saturday Manchester City travel to London Stadium to play West Ham and, if the bookies are correct, are expected to win comfortably. But do the heavens agree? The debilitating South Node afflicting the cusp of the 1st house (which represents the favourites) could pose problems for City, just as the North Node on the cusp of the 7th house gives a corresponding boost to the fortunes of the opposing Hammers. Although powerful, this is the only testimony in West Ham’s favour. The rest of the chart inclines towards a victory for City, most notably the Moon’s sextile to Mars, the dispositor of the Part of Fortune: Harmonious aspects from the Moon to the Fortuna or her dispositor traditionally favour the favourites (it may also be noted that Mars rules the 4th house, representing victory for the underdogs, but unfortunately for West Ham his role as the dispositor of Fortuna takes precedence). West Ham are represented by the 7th house ruler Mercury who is currently retrograde and moving ever closer to the Sun. Whist retrograde motion is not usually a debility in contest charts of this type, combustion very much is; the likelihood being that, on this occasion, West Ham will find the challenge of City too hot to handle.

The same sextile between the Moon and Mars which smiles on the fortunes of Manchester City may prove equally favourable to their neighbours and derby rivals Manchester United: As favourites, Manchester United are signified by the 1st house and its ruler Mars, to which the Moon’s sextile carries a likely victory.

The North and South nodes once again make their influence felt in Saturday’s early evening match between favourites Liverpool and opponents Sheffield Utd. The North Node placed exactly on the cusp of the Ascendant should give a boost to the fortunes of the hosts, whilst the South Node may be expected to cause corresponding problems for Sheffield. The Moon just inside the 10th house (victory for the favourites) is a further powerful testimony for Liverpool. The primary significator of Liverpool, Mercury (Lord 1) would appear at first to be hindered by combustion (close proximity to the Sun), but as the Sun is also ruler of a house representing one of the teams (the 4th house; victory for Sheffield), this debility has less significance. On balance, a likely win for favourites Liverpool.

On to Sunday, where Aberdeen play hosts to favourites Celtic at Pittodrie. Although hindered by the baleful influence of the South Node conjunct the cusp of the 1st house, Celtic should emerge the victors, assisted by the applying conjunction of Fortuna with her dispositor, retrograde Mars.
