The Part of Fortune often has a key part to play in sporting contests, and never more so than this intriguing chart for Saturday’s match between Spurs and Wolves.
As favourites, Spurs are awarded Mars (Lord 1) and the Sun (Lord of the 10th house; victory for the favourites).
Rivals Wolves are represented by Venus (Lord of the opposing 7th house) and Saturn (Lord of the 4th house; victory for the underdogs).
The Sun (for Spurs) is strongly placed in his own house, but too far from the house cusp to help his team’s cause: An orb of around 2 degrees or less is usually the most effective in such cases.
Saturn (for Wolves) is also strongly placed in his own house but is much closer to the house cusp. Because of his retrograde motion, he is moving closer still: Spurs would do well not to underestimate Wolves, who will prove formidable opposition.
With the Moon, (who represents the progress of events) making no aspects to any of the main significators within the 5-degree orb usually considered effective for 90-minute football matches, the Part of Fortune steps forward as the key player in this chart.
Being linked to the Moon’s phases, the placement of the Part of Fortune by house is rarely significant: Every lunar month it will be in the same position, matching its related point in the Moon’s cycle. The placement of the Part of Fortune in the 10th house can therefore be overlooked.
However, the conjunction of the Part of Fortune with the Sun (Lord 10) is worthy of note: Had the orb of aspect been closer, this would award Spurs the match. At over 7 degrees distant, such a result cannot be guaranteed, but the aspect is nevertheless important.
The applying opposition between Saturn and the Part of Fortune is closer, and therefore more significant: It is further evidence that Wolves will be a force to be reckoned with.
If the bodily placement of the Part of Fortune is not significant, the same cannot be said for its antiscion. Here, at 09 Taurus 49, it is placed in the 7th house: A vote of confidence for Wolves. It is not close enough to the cusp to signify a win (an orb of 2 degrees or less would be required to guarantee Wolves the match) but it is a testimony worthy of consideration.
So, we have one testimony for Spurs and three for Wolves, none of which conclusively promise a win for either side.
Wolves will have to play extremely well to win, but will certainly give Spurs a run for their money: A close result is to be expected and a draw cannot be ruled out.
