Both Sheffield Utd and Liverpool have struggled over the last few weeks. Could this weekend’s game mark a return to form? And how closely does the chart reflect their current situation?
Sheffield have won just two games out of the last five, but that is still better than injury-hit Liverpool who have claimed victory in only one. Nevertheless, at the time of writing Liverpool are placed considerably higher in the table than their hosts and are therefore attracting more favourable odds.
The uninspiring performance of both teams is reflected in a lacklustre chart: There is only one testimony of significance, the placement of the Moon just inside the cusp of the 1st house, which favours the favourites: John Frawley notes that the Moon in a team’s house (on or just inside the cusp of the house) “is like a big surge of energy towards the team, almost as if the cosmos is cheering for it.” Usually this a testimony would not be enough to guarantee victory on its own, but there is little else going on in the chart so the favourites (Liverpool if the pundits are correct) look likely to win.
It is worthy of note that the Moon is void of course. In horary astrology, this often gives rise to the interpretation that nothing will come of the question. But this can never be the case in a contest chart. There must always be a result. A goalless draw is a possibility, but it is more often the case that the status quo is maintained, and the stronger or better placed team at the kickoff remains so when the final whistle blows. Therefore, the Moon’s void of course status further supports the favourites.
