This chart for Saturday’s Premier League fixture between Aston Villa and Newcastle illustrates the importance of the Moon in forecasting sporting contests.
Although Aston Villa have a home side advantage, Newcastle (placed 3rd in the table to Aston Villa’s 6th) are the pundits’ choice to win.
As favourites, Newcastle are awarded the 1st house and its ruler the Sun. They are also signified by Mars, ruler of the 10th house (victory for the favourites).
Their hosts and opponents are represented by Saturn (lord of the 7th house) and Venus (lord of the 4th house; victory for the underdogs).
Venus, lord of the 4th house, applies to conjunct the Part of Fortune. This is highly favourable for Aston Villa but not a conclusive testimony of victory (as it would be if the conjunction to the Part of Fortuna involved the 1st or 7th house rulers).
Instead, the applying lunar sextile to the Sun is to likely to decide this match for the favourites: Expect goals for both sides, but a win for Newcastle.
