Eight-times tournament champions Germany are the favourites, and are represented by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10).
The Moon, ruler of the 7th house, is already spoken for as significator of events, so Jupiter (the Moon’s dispositor) stands in as the main representative for Finland. They are also signified by Venus (Lord 4).
The Moon’s sextile to Mars is a highly positive testimony for the favourites.
Mars hovers near to the 4th house cusp (signifying Finland’s hopes for victory quashed by Germany), but may be a little too far from the cusp to be significant (an orb of 1-2 degrees is preferred).
Similarly, the antiscion of the Part of Fortune (at 13 Taurus 28, placed inside the 4th house cusp) is not as strong a testimony for Finland as it would be if closer to the cusp (again, 1-2 degrees is preferred).
There is potential here for goals for both sides, but Germany should come out ahead.
Again, the favourites (Spain) are signified by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10). Opponents Denmark are signified by Jupiter (dispositor of the Moon, Lord 7) and Venus, Lord 4.
As in the Finland vs Germany match, the Moon still applies to sextile Mars; an important testimony for favourites Spain. But the antiscion of the Part of Fortune (at 11 Taurus 16) lies directly on the 4th house cusp; this is highly fortunate for Denmark.
Whether this is enough to upset the pundit’s predictions remains to be seen, but this promises to be a more evenly matched fixture than expected. A draw cannot be ruled out.
