The pundits have tipped South Korea most likely to win their match against Nigeria. The alignment of the stars seems to concur, with only one testimony in an otherwise lacklustre chart; (he Moon's applying square to the antiscion of Venus, Lady of the Ascendant.
Mars, for Nigeria is placed in the 10th house and the Moon is in the 1st. Both these placements are too far from the house cusps to give them credible influence as testimonies in their own right, but may lend additional, if weak, support to South Korea's cause.
In the absence of any testimonies in favour of opponents Nigeria, South Korea should carry the day.
In today's duel between bookie's favourites Germany and their opponents Spain the only testimony of note is the Moon's square to the antiscion of Venus, ruler of the 7th house, favouring Spain.
Uranus, who has already proved his power as an affliction (South Africa's red card in their opening game, and the thunderstorm which disrupted the second half of yesterday's match between Chile and Sweden) is loitering with intent above the 7th house, but may be too far from the cusp to make his presence felt.
This promises to be a far closer match than the pundits expect, the sole testimony pointing to a strong performance from Spain which may be sufficient to beat the favourites.
Tournament hosts France are favourites to win at Nice, where they play Norway in today's last match.
The Moon's applying square to the antiscion of Venus, ruler of the 10th house should bring victory to the favourites, who are further strengthened by their main significator, Jupiter's placement on the 1st house cusp.
