There is difference of opinion among the pundits about which team are the favourites in this weekend’s featured match between Preston and Reading. However, they agree that the result will be close. Do the stars concur?
Placed higher in the table and enjoying an impressive run of wins, visitors Reading look the more likely favourites and are awarded the 1st house and its ruler Mercury at 23 Aquarius 17. Jupiter at 08 Aquarius 16, rules the opposing 7th house and describes hosts Preston.
The Moon immediately applying to the cusp of the 1st house is a very fortunate sign for Reading. As John Frawley writes in “Sports Astrology”; “the Moon being in one team’s house is like a big surge of energy towards that team, almost as if the cosmos is cheering for it.”
Saturn (Lord 10: Victory for the favourites) and the Sun (Lord 4: Victory for the underdogs) are both placed on the Midheaven. Significators on the cusp of a house have power and influence over that house. The 10th being the house of victory, this is a sign that both teams will score, and the match may be as close as the pundits predict.
However, Jupiter’s placement inside the 10th house is a testimony against Preston; showing their main significator in the power of the favourites.
This promises to be a closely fought match, with goals for both teams: However, Reading look set to retain the edge and add the result to their recent run of victories.
