Currently placed in the table at 4th and 5th respectively, and with 3 wins each, the fortunes of Manchester United and Everton couldn’t be closer. Nevertheless, the pundits seem confident that Manchester United are odds-on favourites: As such, they are awarded the 1st house and its ruling planet Jupiter (22 Aquarius 44 retrograde) as their main significators.
Rivals Everton are described by the opposing 7th house and its ruler Mercury (also retrograde at 23 Libra 47).
The Moon, who describes how events will unfold during the match, applies to oppose Jupiter. In contest charts, the nature of the Moon’s aspect matters less than the planet she aspects: Although this aspect is an opposition, it is still a very good sign for the favourites.
The Moon then makes a sextile to Mercury. This is equally beneficial to Everton: Clearly a draw cannot be ruled out.
However, the Moon’s next aspect is a sextile to Venus. As Venus rules the 10th house (victory for the favourites), this may tip the scales in favour of Manchester United. This aspect is just outside the 5 degree orb usually considered effective for a 90 minute football match, so Everton should be on their guard in the latter stages of the game (and particularly during any extra time) when Manchester United could seize the advantage.
