In his book “Sports Astrology”, John Frawley advocates using the 1st House and its ruler to describe the favourites and the opposing 7th house for the underdogs. Following this system, visitors Manchester United (currently top of the Table and hotly tipped for victory) are signified by Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, while Mercury as ruler of the 7th house, represents hosts West Ham.
Mercury is placed in the 10th house of victory. This is potentially a position of great strength, but Mercury is placed a little too far from the house cusp for West Ham to truly benefit.
More significant is the Moon’s immediate trine to Venus. Venus’ role as dispositor of the Part of Fortune takes precedence over her rulership of the 10th house, but either way this aspect favours Manchester United.
With no other significant aspects within the 5-degree orb usually considered effective for a 90-minute football match, Manchester United look set to continue their currant dominance of the Premier League.
