FA Cup Semi-Final 22nd April 2023: Manchester City vs Sheffield United

Manchester City are the clear favourites to win this weekend’s first Semi-Final fixture, but the contest chart for the match appears to contradict this view. 

As favourites, Manchester City are represented by Mercury, who rules both the 1st house and the 10th house (victory for the favourites). 

Jupiter, lord of the opposing 7th house (also lord of the 4th house; victory for the underdogs), signifies Sheffield. 

There are two key testimonies in this chart, both in favour of Sheffield: Firstly, Jupiter applies to bodily opposition with the Part of Fortune. The aspect could be closer, but as it is just within the 5-degree orb which is considered most effective for a 90-minute football match, this is highly positive for Sheffield. 

The Moon also applies to square the antiscion of Jupiter (at 05 Virgo 40). In his book “Sports Astrology), John Frawley notes that aspects other than the conjunction or opposition are less reliable but seem to work if there is nothing to overrule them. In a chart bereft of any stronger testimonies, the lunar square to the antiscion of Jupiter further supports the case for Sheffield.  

Could Sheffield be on the way to the FA Cup final? This chart certainly promises a closer game than expected, with potentially a few surprises in store.
