convincing performance in their debut fixture against New Zealand has made The Netherlands joint leaders of their group and favourites to win in Valenciennes todays against Cameroon.
Their sole significator is Venus, Lady of the Ascendant, the Moon (ruler of the 10th house) being otherwise occupied as significator of the unfolding action during the match. Mars (Lord of the 7th) and Saturn (Lord of the 4th) are the significators of Cameroon.
This chart is as straightforward as they get: The Moon applies to an opposition with Venus, which should award victory to The Netherlands (the next aspect, a trine to the antiscion of Mars at 10 Gemini 29 is beyond the 5 degree limit of movement allowed for aspects from the Moon in football matches). Cameroon will also have to contend with the applying conjunction between Saturn and the South Node, which is likely to prove a severe affliction.
Their main significator, Jupiter, on the cusp of their own (1st) house is highly positive for the match favourites Canada.
The corresponding benefic testimony for New Zealand, the conjunction between Mercury (Lord 7) and the benefic North Node is separating, so will not be as powerful in effect.
The Moon applies to oppose Venus (Lord 10th), which could indicate an early goal for Canada, but the final aspect from the Moon (over the alloted 5 degrees) is an opposition to the antiscion of Mars (for New Zealand) at 10 Gemini 19. Traditionally, the last aspect from the Moon awards victory, in this case with New Zealand as the beneficiaries. This game promises a lively contest between two well-matched teams, at least two goals and possibly a surprise or two.
