The pundits expect Fulham to win this Saturday, but do the stars agree?
As favourites, Fulham are represented by the Sun, ruler of the 1st house and Mars (ruler of the 10th house; victory for the favourites).
Opponents Leeds are signified by Saturn, ruler of the 7th house and Venus, lord of the 4th house (victory for the underdogs).
The Sun (for Fulham) is placed in the 10th house: This would be a sure sign of victory were the Sun closer to the 10th house cusp, and in the same sign as the Midheaven (an orb of around 2 degrees is most effective in contest charts). However, with the Sun placed too far from the 10th house cusp, and in a different sign, this testimony does not signify.
The applying trine from the Part of Fortune to its dispositor, retrograde Mercury, is highly favourable testimony for Fulham, if not as positive as a conjunction.
The Moon often holds the key to the outcome of the match. Here, she applies to a square with Saturn; very positive for outsiders Leeds. Just over 4 degrees separate the Moon and Saturn from exact aspect. As this is as close to the 5-degree limit considered most effective for a 90-minute football match, Leeds should look out for opportunities which arise towards the end of the match.
This fixture promises to be much closer than expected. Leeds have the potential to surprise the pundits and gain the advantage; their best chances occurring in the latter stages of the game.
