The chart for this Sunday’s main event, a Manchester derby between City and United, is distinguished more by difficult aspects than favourable ones.
Currently residing at the top of the table, Manchester City are the clear favourites. They are signified by the 1st house and its ruler, and the 10th house (victory for the favourites).
Rivals Manchester United are awarded the opposing 7th house, its ruler Jupiter and the 4th house (which represents victory for the underdogs). Jupiter is strongly placed in Pisces, a sign he traditionally rules. However, he is too far from the 7th house cusp to lend significant support to his team. Additionally, he is combust (placed close to the Sun) which is severely debilitating.
In contest charts, the placement of the Nodes in houses is not usually significant. However, with a lack of any other strong testimonies in this chart, and the proximity of the Nodes to the cusps of the 4th and 10th houses, they may have more power than usual, in which case the North Node’s conjunction with the 10th house cusp is beneficial for City and the South Node’s affliction of the 4th house is a further negative testimony for United.
With one testimony in favour of City and two against United, a home win is the most likely outcome.
