Manchester City are odds-on favourites to win at Goodison Park this Saturday, but does this week’s FA Cup Quarter-Final fixture have a surprise in store?
Mercury, ruler of the first house describes the favourites, Manchester City. At 06 Pisces 40, Mercury is in the sign of his fall, but essential dignity seems less relevant in contest charts: Accidental dignity; the placement of planets and the aspects to them, often proves more significant.
Their hosts are signified by the opposing 7th house and its ruler, Jupiter. At 20 Aquarius 56, Jupiter will be the first planet to be aspected by the Moon, (by trine) signifying at least one goal for Everton.
The Moon only aspects Mercury (Man City’s significator) by antiscion (at 23 Libra 20). Had this been an aspect to Mercury himself rather than his antiscion it would likely mean a win for Chelsea, this being the last aspect the Moon makes over the 5-degree orb usually considered effective for a 90-minute football match. An aspect by antiscion is less conclusive, but still holds the promise of goals for Manchester City.
A stronger indication for Manchester City is the placement of the Moon in the 10th house (the house of victory, and more specifically, victory for the favourites). In combination with the Moon’s aspect to Mercury’s antiscion, this could be enough to win them the match. However, the Moon’s trine to Jupiter (for Everton) is also significant: Both sides look set to score, and a draw cannot be ruled out. Everton in particular look set to surprise the pundits with a more convincing performance than expected.
