In the Premiership League Table, the gulf dividing the two teams at St James’ Park this weekend is significant, with Tottenham in 6th place and Newcastle in 17th. The odds for both teams reflect this disparity, with Spurs as hot favourites. But do the heavens have a surprise in store?
The Sun, ruler of the 1st house, represents favourites Spurs. Their hosts Newcastle are awarded the opposing 7th house and its ruler Saturn.
Saturn, at 11 Aquarius 38 is placed on the cusp of the 7th. In his own sign and house, Saturn lends a boost of strength to the team he signifies in the chart; Newcastle.
The Sun, representing Spurs, is in the sign of his exaltation and applies to conjunct the Midheaven but is too far away from this angle for this to be significant. Furthermore, Venus intercedes: Placed closer to the Midheaven (which represents victory and success, particularly for the favourites) and ruling the 4th house (victory for the underdogs), Venus indicates that this match may not prove as easy a win for Spurs as the bookies suppose.
The Moon applies to square Venus, a testimony for Newcastle. The only other aspect of significance is also in their favour: A sextile from the Moon to the antiscion of Saturn at 18 Scorpio 22.
Expect at least one goal for Newcastle and a significantly better performance from the Magpies than the odds may suggest.
