At the time of writing, France are odds-on favourites: They are signified by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10).
The Moon rules the 7th house. As she is already spoken for as significator of the progress of events, we look to the Moon’s dispositor (Mercury) to represent the Netherlands. They are also represented by Venus (Lord 4).
Mars, (Lord 10) applies to oppose the Part of Fortune. According to John Frawley in his book “Sports Astrology”, this is a rare example (in the judging of contest charts) where the challenging nature of the opposition aspect matters: Although this aspect involves Mars, one of France’s significators, it favours the Netherlands. This testimony may seem something of an anomaly, and it will be interesting how it plays out in practice.
Another intriguing testimony is the conjunction of Mercury’s antiscion (at 21 Taurus 14) with the North Node. This again favours the Netherlands.
There is little else going on in this chart by placement or aspect: Mars is too far from the 4th house cusp to have any effect. The bodily placement of the Part of Fortune on the 10th house cusp is not significant, as the Part of Fortune is determined by the Moon’s phase and will be the same at this point in every lunar month.
The pundits expect a victory for France, but the heavens suggest that the Netherlands will not make this easy.
