Still reeling from their shock defeat last weekend, when Leicester City dashed their hopes of Community Shield victory in the 89th minute, will Manchester City be able to rally to victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium? Or will their hosts be celebrating the start of the new season with a home win?
Tottenham are the home team, but at the time of writing Manchester City are the bookie’s favourites. Following John Frawley’s method of forecasting, the favourites are awarded the 1st house and its ruler: Therefore, Manchester City are represented by Jupiter, ruler of the rising sign, Sagittarius. Venus being ruler of the 10th house (which usually represents victory for the favourites), is their co-significator.
Rivals Spurs are awarded the opposing 7th house and its ruler Mercury. Their fortunes are also somewhat represented by the 4th house (victory for the underdogs) and its ruler Mars.
The Part of Fortune just inside the 4th house augurs well for Spurs but would be better were it closer to the 4th house cusp. At just over 3 degrees distant, the aspect is not strong enough to guarantee a win – even before the Moon’s aspects are considered.
With an applying square to Jupiter (Lord 1) followed by a final sextile to Venus (Lord 10, victory for the favourites), the Moon casts her vote firmly in favour of Manchester City.
Expect goals for both teams but, because the Moon’s final aspect often indicates the victor, a likely win for Manchester City.
