At the time of writing, the Philadelphia Eagles are current favourites to win this year’s Super Bowl, and are signified by the Sun, ruler of the 1st house. Usually, they would also have the ruler of the 10th house (Mars) as their co-significator, but he already has an important role as dispositor of the Part of Fortune.
Saturn, lord of the opposing 7th house signifies the Kansas City Chiefs, who are also represented by Venus, lord of the 4th house.
Saturn (the Chiefs) is well placed in Aquarius, the sign he traditionally rules, and the Sun (the Eagles), also in Aquarius, is in the sign of his detriment.
However, accidental dignity tends to be far more important than essential dignity in contest charts, so all this tells us is that the Eagles will play well, but not necessarily that they will win.
The Part of Fortune is placed just inside the 10th house cusp, but it is not its bodily placement which is important: As John Frawley in his book “Sports Astrology” notes, the Part of Fortune is linked to the phase of the Moon, so any game which begins around the New Moon would be won by the favourites, and the underdogs would win any game timed to start on a Full Moon. History shows this is not the case.
The antiscion of the Part of Fortune is more variable by sign and placement over the course of a lunar month and therefore has greater significance. However, in this chart, at 04 Virgo 19, the antiscion of the Part of Fortune aspects none of the main significators and therefore has little to tell us about the result.
It is up to the Moon, who describes the progress of events during the game, to point us to the potential winner. The Moon applies to aspect both the Sun and Saturn by square but must travel well over the 5 degrees usually considered effective for American football (John Frawley has observed that there is even less leeway possible for this rule than in British soccer). Therefore, neither of these aspects should have a bearing on the result.
This leaves just one lunar aspect of note: A trine from the Moon to Venus, who as lord of the 4th house represents the Chiefs. A win for the Kansas City Chiefs seems the most likely outcome.
