Astrological Football Forecasts for Cardiff City vs Bristol City, Tottenham Hotspur Women vs Reading Women and Chelsea vs Sheffield Utd
Up until now, this season’s predictions have focused on the Premiership but, by request, future posts will include fixtures from a greater variety of football leagues, including the Championship, European and the Women’s Super League.
With this in mind, this week’s first featured match is Friday’s Champions League match between Cardiff City and Bristol City. According to the pundits, Cardiff are set for victory: As favourites, they are represented by the 1st house, the sign on its cusp (Gemini) and its ruler Mercury. Their opponents, Bristol City are described by the 7th house and its ruler Jupiter. The Moon in her key role as significator of events applies first to oppose Saturn (Lord of the 10th house; victory for the favourites) and next squares Mercury, Lord 1. The unharmonious nature of the Moon’s aspects is less important than the contact with significant planets: These are both powerful testimonies which should bring Cardiff victory.
On to Saturday, and a Women’s Super League fixture between Spurs and Reading. Based on current form, Reading are favourites to win and are represented by Jupiter (Lord of the Ascendant). Their opponents Spurs are signified by the 7th house and its ruler Mercury. The Moon applies first to trine the antiscion of Jupiter (at 07 Sagittarius 59), pointing to a goal (or potential early lead) for Reading. The next testimony from the Moon, an opposition to the antiscion of the Part of Fortune (at 11 Aquarius 37) offers hope of an equalizer to Spurs. But since the Moon has to travel over 7 degrees to perfect this aspect and an orb of 5 degrees is usually the effective limit for a 90 minute football match, the best chance for Spurs will occur in the latter minutes, success becoming more likely the match strays into extra time.
According to the pundits, Saturday’s Premiership clash between Chelsea and Sheffield United is a foregone conclusion, with Chelsea set for easy victory: But do the heavens agree? The Moon applies to conjunct the 4th house (victory for the underdogs) and trines the antiscion of Jupiter, Lord 7 (at 07 Sagittarius 58), both testimonies for Sheffield which suggest that Chelsea will find this match more challenging than first supposed. However, Chelsea have an ace up their sleeve in the form of the Part of Fortune’s conjunction with the antiscion of Mercury (02 Pisces 44): This testimony is the strongest in the chart, and confirms that Chelsea are unlikely to lose. Nevertheless, there will be goals for both sides and if Sheffield play as well as expected, a draw may be possible.
