Visitors Arsenal are favourites to win at Villa Park this Saturday, but the heavens suggest their victory may not be so certain.
The sign rising on the cusp of the 1st house (Cancer) represents favourites Arsenal. The 1st house ruler being already occupied as significator of events, the Moon’s dispositor (Venus, at 12 Aquarius 20) stands in as their main significator. Mars, ruler of the 10th house (victory for the favourites) is their secondary significator.
Saturn, ruler of the opposing 7th house, represents hosts Astron Villa. They have no secondary significator as Venus (ruler of the 4th house, victory for the underdogs) is already spoken for by Arsenal.
The Moon has already moved past her trine aspects to Mars and Venus, so these do not count towards the result. However, her applying trine to the Part of Fortune is a very strong testimony of victory for the favourites. This being the only lunar aspect of note within the 5-degree orb usually considered effective for a 90-minute football match, Arsenal might well feel confident of victory.
But another outcome is also possible. The next aspect the Moon makes is another trine, this time to Aston Villa’s main significator, Saturn: Being only just outside the 5-degree orb, this aspect offers hope to Aston Villa of levelling the score, and perhaps turning events in their favour towards the latter stages of the game, especially if the match runs into extra time.
