Premier League Saturday 13th May 2023: Leeds vs Newcastle

With favourites Newcastle 4th in the table, and Leeds facing the prospect of relegation, the outcome of this Saturday’s fixture at Elland Road seems a forgone conclusion. But do the heavens agree? 

As favourites, Newcastle are represented by the Sun (Lord 1) and Venus (Lord of the 10th house; victory for the favourites).  

Rivals Leeds are signified by Saturn (Lord of the opposing 7th house) and Mars (Lord of the 4th house; victory for the underdogs). 

In his book “Sports Astrology” John Frawley notes that the Moon’s aspects decide the greatest proportion of contest charts. 

Here the Moon applies to a conjunction with Saturn (Lord 7, for Leeds) at 06 Pisces 12. Bodily conjunctions from the Moon are usually enough to win the match: Contrary to expectations, could Leeds be celebrating this Saturday? 

However, the Moon next trines Venus (at 06 Cancer 24). In this chart, Venus represents victory for the favourites, so this is an extremely positive testimony for Newcastle.  

The closeness of these two lunar aspects (the conjunction and the trine), which occur almost simultaneously, suggest that this chart may offer an exception to the rule that bodily conjunctions from the Moon usually decide the match.  

This is an exceptionally fascinating chart. A draw is the least likely outcome, but it will be interesting to see which lunar aspect is stronger and whether Leeds or Newcastle will emerge victorious.
