Who will the heavens favour in this week’s Premier League clash between Southampton and Chelsea?
As odds-on favourites Chelsea are represented by the 1st house but not by its ruler the Moon who is otherwise occupied in her role as significator of events during the match. Instead the Moon’s dispositor Mercury (retrograde at 11 Aquarius 02) is called from the substitute’s bench as significator for the favourites.
The ruler of the opposing 7th house Saturn represents hosts Southampton, strongly placed in his own sign at 07 Aquarius 32.
A retrograde Mercury is not usually a hindrance in contest charts. This is especially true here where he applies to trine the Moon, signalling a possible early lead for Chelsea. The Moon’s next two aspects; a trine to Jupiter (Lord 10, victory to the favourites) and a trine to the Part of Fortune also favour the favourites.
This week, the heavens cast their vote with the pundits: A victory for Chelsea is predicted.
