18th December 2021: Leeds vs Arsenal

With so many games cancelled this week, there are few matches to choose from.  The chart for Saturday’s game between hosts Leeds and favourites Arsenal is far from perfect, but there is just enough information to attempt a judgement. 

The favourites (Arsenal) are usually represented by the 1st house and its ruler.  Cancer ascends, making the 1st house ruler the Moon.  As the Moon already has a key role in contest charts, that of significator of events, her dispositor Mercury is summoned from the substitutes bench to represent Arsenal.  Mercury’s new role as main significator for Arsenal supersedes his other function as ruler of the 4th house (victory for the underdogs), in which he would have represented Leeds.    

Leeds, as the underdogs, are represented by the ruler of the opposing 7th house, Saturn.   

Mercury, at 07 Capricorn 12, applies to conjunct the Part of Fortune.  At 7 degrees, the orb of aspect is quite wide, but an applying conjunction with Fortuna is often significant and cannot be overlooked.   

The antiscion of Mercury, at 22 Sagittarius 10, opposes the Moon.  This is a minor testimony which also supports Arsenal.   

These testimonies are far from clear cut, but with two for Arsenal, and none for Leeds, it seems likely the result will go the way the pundits expect.
