Placed 5th in the Premiership, 14 points separate Arsenal from Newcastle, languishing at the bottom of the table with just 6 points. Arsenal are clear favourites to win, but is this reflected in the heavens?
The astrological chart set for the kickoff seems to concur: Jupiter, Lord of the 10th house (victory and success) is placed just inside the cusp of the 1st house which represents Arsenal (because they are the favourites, not because they are the home team). Victory is within their grasp.
The Sun, ruler of the opposing 7th house and main significator of Newcastle, applies to the cusp of the 10th house of victory. However, at 10 degrees distant from the cusp, the Sun is too far away from the cusp to help the underdogs.
The Part of Fortune conjunct its own dispositor (Mars) is another strong testimony for the favourites.
With two strong testimonies for Arsenal, and none for Newcastle, this chart agrees with the pundits: A win for for the home side is the most likely result
