On to the Round of 16, and Saturday’s match between the Netherlands and the USA. The pundits favour the Netherlands to win, but what do the heavens say?
The Moon (Lord of the 1st house) already has a role describing the progress of events during the match, so another significator must be found for the favourites: The Moon’s dispositor, Mars, is called from the substitute’s bench to represent the Netherlands. They are awarded Jupiter, Lord of the 10th house (victory for the favourites) as co-significator.
Saturn, ruler of the opposing 7th house, describes their rivals, the USA. They are also represented by Mercury, Lord of the 4th house as co-significator.
There are two strong testimonies in this chart. First, the Moon applies to sextile Saturn (Lord 7). Secondly, Saturn applies to conjunct the antiscion of the Part of Fortune (at 21 Aquarius 56): Both these testimonies support the USA, suggesting that they will do much better than the pundits expect.
