Austria reached the semi-finals in 2017 and as favourites for this fixture are signified by Mars (Lord 1) and Mercury (Lord 10). Northern Ireland will be keen to improve on their tournament debut, which saw them lose 4-1 to Norway. They are represented by Venus (Lord 7) and Jupiter (lord 4).
The Moon applies to oppose Venus, which is an excellent testimony for Northern Ireland. However, the antiscion of Jupiter (at 21 Virgo 46) is placed in the 10th house, showing that Northern Ireland’s hopes of victory are in the power of Austria.
The Moon’s trine to the Part of Fortune (a testimony for the favourites) is just outside the 5-degree orb usually considered effective for a 90-minute football match, but extra time is always a possibility.
This promises to be a closer game than the odds suggest (Austria are hotly tipped to win). Austria are likely to dominate the game but should not allow themselves to become complacent. There is a chance of at least one goal for Northern Ireland. The best chance of victory for Austria is likely to occur in extra time.
