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.
Group F : Sweden v South Korea
At the time of writing, the bookmakers
favour Sweden. Their significators are Venus (Lady of the ascendant) and the Sun (Lord 10). Their rivals, South Korea are awarded Lord 7 (Mars) only. Lord 4, Saturn, is otherwise occupied as dispositor of Fortuna, a role which takes precedence. The North Node conjunct Venus favours the favourites but Mars is strengthened somewhat by his placement on the cusp of the 4th house (in the manner of an army well fortified for a siege). The Moon's applying trine to Saturn (dispositor of Fortuna) is likely to award at least one goal (and in probability, the match) to Sweden. This testimony is confirmed by the applying conjunction between Fortuna and Saturn (Fortuna's dispositor). The strength of Mars should translate into South Korea giving a resilient performance which is likely to restrict the number of goals in this game.
Group G: Belgium v Panama
For the first game of Group G, Belgium are the bookie's favourites, awarding them Jupiter (Lord of the Ascendant) and Panama Lord 7 (Mercury). Lords 4 and 10 are otherwise occupied as the primary for significators for either team.
This chart is remarkable only for the lack of any meaningful aspects or placements, other than the Moon's trine to Saturn (dispositor of Fortuna). John Frawley in his book 'Sports Astrology' notes that the baleful nature of Saturn can sometimes override any other role (with the exception of Lord 1) he is playing in the chart, but providing Saturn is on his best behaviour, the trine from the Moon should prove a weak testimony for the favourites.
Group G : Tunisia v England
Even allowing for a certain amount of patriotism from our English bookmakers, England are the likely
favourites for their first game of the tournament. Their significators are Saturn (Lord 1) and Venus (Lady of the 10th). Their opponents Tunisia are awarded Mars (Lord 4) and Mercury, dispositor of the Moon (the Moon, Lady of the 7th being otherwise occupied as significator of the flow of events). The Moon applies to trine Saturn, Lord 1; a strong testimony for England.
