England are favourites for this Group B match, but USA are in great form and could prove formidable opponents: What do the stars say about the outcome?
As favourites, England are represented by the Sun (Lord 1) and Venus (Lord 10, victory for the favourites).
Rivals USA are awarded the rulers of the opposing houses, Saturn (Lord 7) and Mars (Lord 4).
The North and South Nodes are placed close to the cusps of the 10th and 4th houses, but house placement of the Nodes seems less important in contest charts than their conjunctions with planetary significators. In any case. The Nodes are retrograde, and separating from the house cusps, not applying to them.
The placement of Uranus, moving retrograde onto the 10th house cusp is a more important testimony. John Frawley notes in his book “Sports Astrology” that this strongly favours the favourites, so this is a boon for England.
Saturn lends powerful support to the USA; placed in his own sign (traditional rulership) and close to the 7th house cusp, he promises a strong performance, which England would be unwise to underestimate.
Of these two testimonies, Uranus is potentially the stronger, although in contest charts he is notoriously inconsistent in his effects. If he turns out to support England, it is well within his power to award them victory.
The USA will produce a reliably strong performance throughout the game, whilst England’s play may be less consistent, but characterised by flashes of brilliance.
