(Chart cast for BST: GMT+1)
An win for France is the most likely outcome to Saturday’s match in Budapest. So say the pundits, but do the heavens agree?
As favourites, France are signifiied by the 1st house and its ruler Venus. As the sign Cancer is on the midheaven, the ruler of the 10th house (victory for the favourites) is the Moon’s dispositor, again Venus. This is because the Moon’s role as significator of events takes precedence over any house rulerships in the chart.
Mars, ruler of the opposing 7th house represents home team Hungary. Saturns rulership of the 4th house (victory for the underdogs) is superceded by his role as dispositor of the Part of Fortune.
The Part of Fortune and dispositor Saturn apply to a conjunction (Saturn is retrograde, so an already close conjunction is getting closer still): This is a compelling testimony for favourites France.
This aspect alone would be powerful enough to win France the match, but the Moon also casts her vote for the favourites, applying to square Venus (in her dual roles as Lord 1, and substitute Lord 10). Note that the Moon first applies to trine Mercury retrograde, but as Mercury represents neither team in this contest chart, the first significant lunar aspect is to Venus.
In the absence of any corresponding testimonies for Hungary, France look the likely victors.
