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 A : Uruguay v Russia
Mars (Lord 1), together with Mercury (Lord 10) represent the bookie's favourites Uruguay. Venus (Lady of the 7th) and Jupiter (Lord 4) are for their rivals, Russia. The Moon for the flow of events, makes one aspect within the 5-6 degrees orb which is usually significant for football matches, a sextile to Mars Lord 1 for the favourites.
Group A: Saudi Arabia v Egypt
Egypt are the bookie's favourites for this match and are awarded Mars, Lord 1 and Mercury Lord 10. Venus, Lady of the 7th and Jupiter Lord 4 represent their rivals, Saudi Arabia.
With the match taking place at the same time and in around the same time zone as the other match in Group A, Uruguay v Russia, the charts are very nearly identical. Again the Moon's sextile to Mars should be the decider in favour of the favourites.
Group B: Iran v Portugal
Portugal, the team favoured by the bookies are represented by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10). Mercury, dispositor of the Moon and Venus, Lady of the 4th house are significators of their opponents Iran. This should prove to be an eventful game; the Moon for the flow of events applies first to sextile Mars (Lord 10) and then a trine to Fortuna; both testimonies for the favourites. Balancing this with a testimony for Iran, Fortuna exactly opposes Mars Lord 1. Additionally, (although slightly outside the reliably workable orb of 5-6 degrees), the Moon next applies to trine Venus, Lady of the 4th; a testimony for Iran, which could prove effective if the match goes to extra time.
Group B: Spain v Morocco
The bookmakers have designated Spain the favourites for this match: As Lord 10 is otherwise occupied as dispositor of Fortuna, they have one significator, Jupiter Lord 1. Significators of their rivals, Morocco are Mercury, Lord 7 and Mars, Lord 4. The Moon applies to Mars, a testimony for Morocco. The next aspect of the Moon (slightly beyond the usually workable 5-6 degrees orb) is a trine to Venus, dispositor of Fortuna; a testimony for the favourites which may be dependent on the match going in to extra time.
