The Moon's Nodes can be a power influence for good or ill in contest charts, and never more so than in today's fixture between favourites Sweden and their opponents Thailand, where their placement looks likely to decide the result.
The benefic North Node placed just inside the 10th house is a highly fortunate testimony for the favourites, whilst the corresponding South Node in the 4th house is an equally powerful debility for their opponents. In the absence of any other significant testimonies, this should award victory to favourites Sweden.
Their masterful debut against Thailand, was proof (if any were needed) why the USA are the frontrunners in this tournament. But will today's match against Chili bring them another record-breaking 13-0 win? Probably not, but Fortuna's conjunction with Uranus is a powerful testimony that the USA are likely to win decisively and in dramatic fashion.
