Although Hull are playing at home, Stoke City (currently placed 8th in the Championship League to Hull’s 19th) are clear favourites to win.
As favourites, Stoke City are represented by Venus, Lord of the 1st house. Hull, their hosts and rivals, are awarded the opposing 7th house and its ruler, Mars.
There are two significant aspects in this chart, both of which favour Stoke: First the Moon applies to trine the Part of Fortune, and next opposes Venus, Lord of the 1st house. As the opposition with Venus is the last significant aspect the Moon makes over the 5-degree orb usually considered effective for a 90-minute football match, a win for the favourites seems likely.
*Astrological Note concerning the Moon’s aspects to the Part of Fortune*
In contest charts, the Moon’s orb of aspect is limited to around 5 degrees (sometimes a little more when extra time is probable). This usually restricts the number of major aspects she can make, so if the Moon contacts a main significator, the nature of the aspect does not matter: A challenging opposition is considered just as fortunate as a more positive trine.
However according to John Frawley’s system (as outlined in his book “Sports Astrology”) when the Moon aspects the Part of Fortune, some aspects favour the favourites and some are more fortunate for the underdogs:
- The Moon conjunct, trine or sextile the Part of Fortune (or its antiscion) favours the favourites.
- The Moon square or opposing the Part of Fortune (or its antiscion) favours the underdogs.
In this case, the Moon’s aspect to the Part of Fortune is a trine, so her testimony counts for favourites Stoke City
