Currently placed 2nd in the table, Liverpool are clear favourites and are therefore described by the 1st house. Usually in contest charts where Cancer rises, the Moon’s dispositor would be summoned from the bench as substitute significator for Liverpool (the Moon being already occupied by her role as significator of events). However, the Moon is placed in Cancer, the sign she rules, so this is not possible either. This leaves Jupiter, the ruler of the 10th house (victory for the favourites) as sole significator for Liverpool.
Their hosts Brighton are awarded Saturn, ruler of the opposing 7th house, and Mercury ruler of the 4th house (victory for the underdogs).
As significator of events, the Moon makes two powerful aspects: A trine to the Part of Fortune and a trine to Jupiter. Both these testimonies favour Liverpool, confirming that (for this match at least) the opinions of the pundits are also reflected in the heavens.
