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.
