Saturday 30th July 2022 FA Community Shield: Liverpool vs Manchester City

At the time of writing, the odds are very close for both teams, with Manchester City having the slight advantage.  

As favourites, Manchester City are signified by Jupiter (Lord 1) and Venus (Lord 10).  

Mercury (Lord of the opposing 7th house) and Mars (Lord 4) represent rivals Liverpool. 

The key aspect in this chart is the Moon’s trine to the Part of Fortune which supports the favourites. If the betting is correct, this is a very fortunate testimony for Manchester City. The late degree of the Moon may indicate an important opportunity which occurs late in the game.  

However, there is another intriguing testimony in this chart: Jupiter’s placement in the 4th house.  

As Jupiter is the primary significator for Manchester City, his placement in the 4th house shows them in the power of Liverpool. Whether this aspect is enough to override the lunar trine to the Part of Fortune remains to be seen, but it promises a closely fought match in which the latter stages of the game will likely prove crucial.

Wednesday 27th July 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro: Germany Women vs France Women

Both teams finished top of their groups, but Germany won all their games and are odds-on favourites to win. Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10) represent them.  

As with the previous game between England and Sweden, the 7th house is ruled by the Moon who, in the sign of Cancer, is her own dispositor. As the Moon is already spoken for as significator of events, France only has one planet to represent them; Venus (Lord 4). 

The Moon applies to oppose Pluto, so is not void of course. She nevertheless makes no aspect to any of the main significators.  

Nor do the placement of the planets offer any clues: All the main significators are too far from the key house cusps to help or hinder. 

Astrology can do much, but sometimes the heavens do not wish to give up their secrets. This is a lacklustre chart which offers few clues to the outcome: Hopefully the game will prove more interesting!

Tuesday 26th July 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro: England Women vs Sweden Women

England are clearly the favourites with the U.K. bookies and betting public, but is this confidence justified? Probably. Both England and Sweden finished top of their groups, but only England won all their games, in the process scoring an impressive 14 goals. As favourites they are signified by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10). 

Sweden won two games and held the mighty Netherlands to a draw: By this reckoning alone, they won’t prove easy to beat. The lord of the 7th house is the Moon, whose role as significator of events takes precedence over any other responsibilities she may have in the chart. Usually, we could use the Moon’s dispositor as an alternative significator, but with the Moon in Cancer, the sign ruled by the Moon, this is not possible. This leaves Venus (Lord 4) as the sole significator for Sweden.  

The Moon’s placement directly on the 7th house cusp is a boon for Sweden: They have their eyes on a place in the final and will play accordingly. Venus’ placement close to the 7th house cusp adds support to this testimony, and to Sweden.  

The placement of the Nodes on house cusps does have much influence in contest charts (only aspects from the Nodes to significators seems to count), so we can ignore the North Node’s conjunction with the 4th house cusp, and the South Node’s affliction of the 10th house. 

The impending lunar sextile to Mars is more important: As the last aspect of the Moon (to a main significator) within the 5-degree orb usually effective for a 90-minute football match, this should award victory to England.  

However, the heavens warn that Sweden will prove formidable opponents, and England would be wise to bear this in mind.

Saturday 23rd July 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro: France Women vs Netherlands Women

At the time of writing, France are odds-on favourites: They are signified by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10). 

The Moon rules the 7th house. As she is already spoken for as significator of the progress of events, we look to the Moon’s dispositor (Mercury) to represent the Netherlands. They are also represented by Venus (Lord 4). 

Mars, (Lord 10) applies to oppose the Part of Fortune. According to John Frawley in his book “Sports Astrology”, this is a rare example (in the judging of contest charts) where the challenging nature of the opposition aspect matters: Although this aspect involves Mars, one of France’s significators, it favours the Netherlands. This testimony may seem something of an anomaly, and it will be interesting how it plays out in practice. 

Another intriguing testimony is the conjunction of Mercury’s antiscion (at 21 Taurus 14) with the North Node. This again favours the Netherlands. 

There is little else going on in this chart by placement or aspect: Mars is too far from the 4th house cusp to have any effect. The bodily placement of the Part of Fortune on the 10th house cusp is not significant, as the Part of Fortune is determined by the Moon’s phase and will be the same at this point in every lunar month.  

The pundits expect a victory for France, but the heavens suggest that the Netherlands will not make this easy.

Friday 22nd July 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro: Sweden Women vs Belgium Women

At the time of writing, Sweden are odds-on favourites to win: They are signified by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10).  

Rivals Belgium are signified by Venus (Lord 4). Venus is Belgium’s sole representative as the Moon (Lord 7) already has a role as significator of events, and the Moon’s dispositor (which would usually be substituted in such cases) is also Venus.  

First, a look at the placements for some of the main significators: Mars (Lord 1) hovers fairly close to the 4th house cusp. This affords a slight advantage to Sweden, but Mars is not quite close enough to the house cusp to be conclusive (a maximum orb of 2 degrees is preferred). 

The Moon is placed in the 4th house, but again is too far from the 4th house cusp to be truly helpful to Belgium.  

More positively for Belgium, Venus (Lord 4) is close to the 7th house cusp: This is a strengthening influence which shows that Belgium will go all out to deny Sweden victory.  

There is only one aspect of significance, and it involves the antiscion of the Part of Fortune (at 28 Aquarius 13): This, a square from the Moon, favours Belgium. Note that Saturn (Lord 1) is conjunct the antiscion of the Part of Fortune, but the aspect is separating (Saturn is retrograde) and therefore in the past. It is also beyond the 5-degree orb usually effective in a 90-minute football match, so does not signify.  

In his book ‘Sports Astrology’, John Frawley states that aspects to Fortuna (the Part of Fortune) or its antiscion are usually final. If this should prove the case today, Belgium’s superior defensive capabilities could triumph over Sweden’s attacking style. Time will tell!

Thursday 21st July 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro: Germany Women vs Austria Women

As favourites, Germany are signified by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10).  

Rivals Austria have only one significator, Venus (Lord 4): This is because the Moon (Lord 7) is already spoken for as significator of the progress of events, and the Moon’s dispositor is Venus (already acting as Lord 4).  

The Moon applies to an opposition with the antiscion of Saturn (at 06 Scorpio 24): A testimony for Germany.  

However, the Moon also lends support to Austria: She applies to the 4th house cusp, delivering a boost of energy to Austria’s performance. The Moon is a little too far from the cusp to guarantee a win for Austria, but it is a testament to their determination not to let Germany dominate the match.  

At the time of writing, Germany are hotly tipped to win, having won all their Group B matches. But this chart suggests the game could be a little closer than the pundits expect. A win for Germany is nevertheless the most likely outcome.

Wednesday 20th July 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro: England Women vs Spain Women

Where the UK bookmakers are concerned, England are usually the favourites and this game is no exception. However, in the light of their recent performance, this may be justified. They are represented by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10). 

Spain, who began as favourites to win the tournament, have turned in a competent but somewhat lacklustre performance. They will be keen to do better tonight and are signified by Venus (Lord 4 and the dispositor of the Moon, Lord 7). 

The Moon (significator of events) first applies to sextile Venus, for Spain. The next lunar aspect is an opposition with the antiscion of Saturn (Lord 1) at 06 Scorpio 20, slightly beyond the 5-degree orb considered effective for a 90-minute football match.  

So, we have one strong testimony for Spain, and one less certain testimony for England: Spain may have a few surprises in store and the expected England victory is by no means certain. England’s chances will improve during the latter stages of the game, especially if it continues into extra time.

Monday 18th July 2022 UEFA Women’s Euros: Italy Women vs Belgium Women and Iceland Women vs France Women

Favourites Italy are signifed by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10).  

Their opponents Belgium have just one representative, Venus (Lord 4). This is because the Moon, ruler of the 7th house is already spoken for as significator of events, and Saturn (the Moon’s dispositor) has already been claimed by Italy.  

Mars on 4th cusp, so favourites Italy dominate Belgium’s hopes of victory and should have the edge in this match. However, with Venus (Lord 4) on the cusp of the 7th house, Belgium will be in fine form and will not allow an easy victory for Italy.  

With a chart so similar to the Italy vs Belgium match, a similar outcome can be expected for the Iceland vs France game: Here, France are the favourites, and despite a spirited performance from Iceland, should look forward to a place in the quarter finals.

Sunday 17th July 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro: Sweden Women vs Portugal Women and Switzerland Women vs Netherlands Women

As favourites, Sweden are represented by Mars (Lord 1) and Mercury (Lord 10). Mercury is combust, a serious debility which could cause problems for Sweden. 

Portugal played with resilience and determination against both the Netherlands and Switzerland and are not to be underestimated. They are signified by Venus (Lord 7) and Jupiter (Lord 4). 

The Moon applies to the 4th house cusp: A powerful boost for Portugal. However the Moon’s next aspect, a trine to the Part of Fortune, favours Sweden. 

The Moon next applies to oppose the antiscion of Jupiter (at 21 Virgo 29); a minor testimony for Portugal.  

The heavens promise a close result. A draw is not beyond the bounds of possibility.  

Note that the Moon next applies to trine Mercury, before moving on to square Venus. Both these aspects are well beyond the 5-degree orb usually effective for a 90-minute football match. Should the game extend into extra time, opportunities are promised for both sides.  

There is so little difference between the chart of Switzerland Women vs Netherlands Women, and the chart of Sweden Women vs Portugal Women that the game should play out in a similar way.  

Here, Netherlands are favourites and will have to contend with Mercury (Lord 10, victory for the favourites) being combust, a serious debility. 

Switzerland, as the team less favoured to win, have the advantage of the Moon applying to the 4th house cusp. The Netherlands will benefit from the Moon’s trine to the Part of Fortune, while the minor testimony of the lunar opposition to the antiscion of Jupiter (21 Virgo 29) again favours Switzerland.  

A closely fought match is forecast, with Switzerland having potential to do much better than the odds suggest.

Saturday 16th July 2022, UEFA Women’s Euros: Finland Women vs Germany Women and Denmark Women vs Spain Women

Eight-times tournament champions Germany are the favourites, and are represented by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10).  

The Moon, ruler of the 7th house, is already spoken for as significator of events, so Jupiter (the Moon’s dispositor) stands in as the main representative for Finland. They are also signified by Venus (Lord 4). 

The Moon’s sextile to Mars is a highly positive testimony for the favourites.  

Mars hovers near to the 4th house cusp (signifying Finland’s hopes for victory quashed by Germany), but may be a little too far from the cusp to be significant (an orb of 1-2 degrees is preferred).  

Similarly, the antiscion of the Part of Fortune (at 13 Taurus 28, placed inside the 4th house cusp) is not as strong a testimony for Finland as it would be if closer to the cusp (again, 1-2 degrees is preferred). 

There is potential here for goals for both sides, but Germany should come out ahead. 

The match between Denmark Women and Spain Women has the same kickoff time as Finland Women vs Germany Women, but important differences in the chart (due to the location of the match) show potential for a very different result.

Again, the favourites (Spain) are signified by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10). Opponents Denmark are signified by Jupiter (dispositor of the Moon, Lord 7) and Venus, Lord 4.

As in the Finland vs Germany match, the Moon still applies to sextile Mars; an important testimony for favourites Spain. But the antiscion of the Part of Fortune (at 11 Taurus 16) lies directly on the 4th house cusp; this is highly fortunate for Denmark.

Whether this is enough to upset the pundit’s predictions remains to be seen, but this promises to be a more evenly matched fixture than expected. A draw cannot be ruled out.
