FIFA World Cup Round of 16 : Sunday 1st July 2018

All event charts are calculated for BST (British Summer Time) using Astrogold for mobile. 'The favourites' are the team with the best overall bookmaker's odds for the match in question only.

Spain v Russia


Mercury (Lord 10) being otherwise occupied as dispositor of Fortuna, Mars (Lord 1) is the sole significator of the favourites, Spain.  Russia are signified by Venus (Lady of the Ascendant) and Jupiter (Lord 4).  The Moon immediately applies to a conjunction with the antiscion of Jupiter at 16 Aquarius 32.  Although not enough to guarantee the match, this could signify an early goal for Russia.  The Moon goes on to oppose Venus (a powerful testimony for Russia) before making a final aspect within the 5-6 degree workable orb to square the antiscion of Mars for Spain at 20 Scorpio 56.  In the absence of any bodily conjunctions to the Moon, the Moon's final aspect usually signifies the winner of the match.  However, a square aspect by antiscion is not as strong in influence as the bodily opposition to Venus:  With such a powerful testimony on the side of Russia, it would be unwise to rule out the host side just yet. 


Croatia v Denmark


The bookmakers strongly tip Croatia to win this match, awarding them Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10).  Denmark has only one significator, Venus (Lady of the 4th), as the Moon and Saturn (Moon's dispositor) have other jobs in this chart.  The Moon first applies to oppose Venus for Denmark, then squares the antiscion of Mars  20 Scorpio 56 before making a final sextile to the antiscion of Saturn at 24 Sagittarius 28; both testimonies for Croatia.  Weighing one strong testimony for Denmark against two slightly weaker testimonies (including the Moon's final aspect) for Croatia awards a slight advantage to the favourites, but the match looks to nowhere near as easy for them to win as the bookies may suppose.
