Friday 13th August 2022: Aston Villa vs Everton

In terms of form, there is little to choose between these teams: Still early in the season, they have played one game each, and both lost. Everton conceded less goals, and currently reside one place higher in the Premiership. However, the bookies favour Aston Villa, who will be playing at home. In John Frawley’s system of contest forecasts, the home team is not automatically considered the favourites, but here this seems the case. 

As favourites, Aston Villa are awarded the 1st house, its ruler Venus (at 02 Leo 05) and the Sun (10th house ruler, representing success in general and victory for the favourites in particular). 

Rivals Everton are described by Mars (ruler of the opposing 7th house) and Saturn, ruler of the 4th house (victory for the underdogs).  

A very late degree rises (29 Libra 29).  If the kickoff is delayed, there is potential for the main significators of the teams to swap over (with Scorpio rising, Mars will signify the 1st house and the favourites and Venus will represent the 7th house and the underdogs). However, the Moon (significator of events) aspects neither Venus or Mars within the 5-degree orb usually considered effective for 90-minute football matches, and nor are any other placements of these planets significant, so a late kickoff is unlikely to effect the outcome.  

The antiscion of Mars (at 04 Leo 06) is a bit too far from the 10th house cusp (success) to be significant for Everton. Similarly the conjunction between Mars and the Part of Fortune is too wide for this to help their cause. 

However, the antiscion of the Part of Fortune (at 10 Leo 59) aligns with the 10th house cusp exactly: Potentially, this is a winning testimony for the favourites which, if the pundits are correct in their choice, will give Aston Villa cause to celebrate this Saturday.

Friday 5th August 2022: Crystal Palace vs Arsenal

A new season brings new hope: Wishing all the best to my readers and every success to the teams you support!

In this week’s featured fixture: Will favourites Arsenal win this Friday, or will Crystal Palace have a few surprises the pundits? Let us see what the heavens have to say… 

As favourites, Arsenal are represented by Saturn (Lord 1) and Jupiter (Lord of the 10th house, usually signifying victory for the favourites).  

As the Moon will be busy describing events during the match, her dispositor Mars stands in a main significator for Crystal Palace. They are also described by Mercury, ruler of the 4th house (victory for the underdogs).  

Pluto, who astrologer John Frawley observes often has a grudge against the favourites, hovers menacingly over the 1st house. However, at over 2 degrees from the house cusp, Pluto is a little too distant to inflict much damage, and his retrograde motion is taking him further away, not closer. Arsenal’s performance may be very slightly impaired, but this is the most we can expect.  

More significant are the Moon’s impending opposition to Mars (favourable for Crystal Palace) followed by a square to Saturn (for Arsenal). 

As the Moon’s last aspect to a key planet usually decides the match, Arsenal fans should have cause to celebrate at the final whistle. However, Arsenal’s performance may not live up to all they are capable of, and there will also be chances for Crystal Palace to boost their standing with at least one goal.
