On to Day 3, and England vs Croatia: To avoid bias, we’re going to eschew the opinions of the English bookmakers and rely purely on table placement to decide the favourites.
Placed top of Group D, Croatia are favourites and are awarded the 1st house and its ruler Venus. England are represented by the ruler of the opposing 7th house, Mars. The Moon makes no further aspects in the sign where she is placed, and a void of course Moon usually maintains the status quo, awarding the game to the favourites.
William Lilly writes; “yet somewhat she (the Moon) performs if void of course and be either in Taurus, Cancer, Sagittarius or Pisces.” Here, the Moon is in her own sign of Cancer, so still has some agency.
On leaving Cancer she immediately applies to conjunct Mars, but that aspect is already within the moiety of the orbs of the Moon and Mars, which Dariot believed would cause the aspect to begin its influence even before the Moon left Cancer for Leo.
Should this be the case, the Moon’s applying conjunction to Mars forecasts a win for England: The result will be the test!
