Despite their recent lacklustre home form and placement at the bottom of their UEFA Nations League group, the bookies still favour Northern Ireland to win. This writer disagrees: In the last match between these teams, Kosovo won and currently reside 2nd in the group, with 6 points to Northern Ireland’s 2. Logically, this makes Kosovo the favourites.
Kosovo are represented by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10, victory for the favourites). With the Moon (Lord 7) already occupied describing the progress of events, her dispositor Mercury steps in as main significator for rivals Northern Ireland. Venus, Lord 4 (victory for the underdogs) is their co-significator.
Pluto, who John Frawley has observed acts as a malefic for the favourites, is in the 1st house but too far from the house cusp to do serious damage to Kosovo’s hopes.
The Moon’s immediate application to square Mars (Lord 10) is very fortunate for the favourites. As this is the only major lunar aspect over the 5-degree orb considered reliable for a 90-minute football match, Kosovo should emerge the victors.
If events stray into extra time, the balance of power swings to Northern Ireland: The Moon’s next aspect is a conjunction to Venus (Lord 4). A conjunction from the Moon to a team’s significator is usually conclusive in their favour but, at 8-degrees before the aspect perfects, extra time would have to be involved for Northern Ireland to salvage any points.
