NFL New Season - Predictions
« on: September 08, 2021, 09:18:46 PM »
Hi there - I have continued to work on my approach to sports astrology predictions. I'm going to be switching focus for the time being to the new NFL season, which opens on 9 September 2021, with a game between the reigning Super Bowl Champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Dallas Cowboys. The bookmakers heavily favour the Bucs in this match. This is also a home match for the Bucs as it is being played at their Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The game begins at 20:20 EDT.

In the chart Aries rises, with the ascendant degree in the bounds of Jupiter. Aries rising gives Mars to the Bucs. Libra is on the descendant, so the Cowboys are primarily ruled by Venus, although the bound lord of this degree is Saturn. This is a reversal of the natural signification in this system, where Venus is the natural co-significator of the favourite, along with Jupiter. On the other hand, Mars is the natural co-significator of the underdog, along with Saturn. Given that Aries rises, my feeling is that Mars is actually working for the Bucs in this case, and suggests that they will triumph over the Cowboys, just as the bookmakers predict.



If we look at the match analysis table, notice that Mars features as the bound lord of all significant positions associated with the Tampa team. Mars also features heavily in bounds associated with the Dallas Cowboys. Saturn turns up as the bound lord for a couple of positions, but notice that Saturn is itself in the bounds of Venus. Although Venus is L7, the descendant being the angle of the underdog, it is also the natural co-significator of the favourite.



If we look at the fourth house cusp, representing the outcome of the match, we see that the IC is in Cancer in the bounds of Mars. This points to the Bucs being the victors in this match. The bound lords associated with the fourth house positions are either Venus or Mars.

Other notable features of this chart include Fortune in the bounds of Mars and Moon in the bounds of Libra. The Moon moves from the trine of Jupiter in the bounds to the conjunction of Venus in the bounds of Mars. The powerful Mars symbolism strongly suggests that the Bucs will continue their winning ways in this match.

Dynamic analysis within game time shows that the Moon switches bounds from Venus to Mars as it approaches its conjunction with Venus. Dynamic analysis of the movement of the angles through the bounds during game time does not show any decisive moments where the favourites may suffer a reversal of fortune.

My view is that the bookies have this one correct.

Post-match

Bucs 31 Cowboys 29

Well, the prediction turned out correctly, but the game was much closer than I thought it would be, with the Buccaneers just scraping in at the last gasp thanks to a final drive by Tom Brady and a field goal at the close of play.

Rams vs. Bears

The LA Rams are opening their season at their new stadium. The bookies heavily favour the Rams to win. I tend to agree with the bookmakers on this one. Although Saturn, natural significator of the underdog, is in the first WSH, along with Jupiter, the natural significator of the favourite, the greater malefic is in the bounds of Venus, the co-signficator of the favourite. Jupiter is rising at the beginning of the match, and in the bounds of Mars, the co-significator of the underdog, and Mars is itself in the bounds of Saturn. The lord of the first house is Saturn, but in the bounds of Venus; the lord of the seventh house, for the underdog, is the Sun, in the bounds of Jupiter. Both Sun and Mars are in aversion to the first house (WSH and Porphyry) suggesting they have limited opportunities to influence the outcome.

The outcome of the match, indicated by the fourth house and its lord Mercury, suggests some surprises along the way, but Mercury is in the bounds of Jupiter, and the Moon's next aspect is sextile Mercury.

The day ruler Sun and hour ruler Moon are in the bounds of Jupiter.

I think the Bears will be competitive, and the position of Jupiter in the bounds of the underdog means it's not 'plain sailing' for the Rams, but I don't think there's enough here for the Chicago team to triumph.



Result

Rams 34 Bears 14

A big win for the Rams.

Ravens vs.  Raiders

This match is being played in Las Vegas, home of the Raiders following their move from Oakland, California. The bookmakers favour the Ravens here, but I sense that the Raiders are in with a chance. As I write, the bookmakers tend to have the odds for the Ravens lengthening, meaning their chances of their winning the game are becoming more remote. Conversely, the odds for the Raiders are shortening, bringing them into the picture as potential winners of the match. In my view, the astrology tends to support this view. Whilst the Ravens may be favoured to win, from an astrological point of view there is plenty in the chart to encourage the Raiders.

A finely balanced match is symbolised by the position of Saturn and Jupiter bestride the ascendant. Both are in the first WSH. Saturn is moving in to the 12th house, and Jupiter is being brought closer to the ascendant. Does the passage of Jupiter to the ascendant favour the Ravens? Not necessarily, because notice that Jupiter is retrograde in the bounds of Mars. The planet might be moving closer to the ascendant by primary motion, but zodiacally its moving into Mars' territory, and the bounds of Mars and Saturn will quickly displace the rising bound of Jupiter. Mars in this system is the co-significator of the underdog, in this case the Raiders.

Notice that Saturn is in the bounds of Venus. Does this favour the Ravens? Venus is the co-significator of the favourites. Not necessarily - note that Venus is in the bounds of Mars. Both benefics, symbolising the favourites, are in the bounds of Mars, and Mars itself is in the bounds of Saturn, the primary significator of the underdog. Saturn is also in it's own sign - Aquarius.

The Ravens are represented by the 1st house cusp, located in Aquarius. The degree of the ascendant is in the bounds of Jupiter. The Raiders are represented by the 7th house cusp, ruled by the Sun. The Sun is also in the bounds of Mars. The descendent degree is in the bounds of Saturn. This balanced Jupiter/Saturn symbolism (both in the first WHS, the degrees of their respective angles in their own bounds) suggests a very finely balanced match.

There is a great deal of fascinating symbolism in this chart. For example let's look at the relationship between Saturn and Venus. Saturn is in the bounds of Venus, so there is a close connection established by this positioning. Saturn is square Venus. Venus and Saturn are approaching each other. Venus is in the bounds of Mars, in Mars' sign, so doubly ruled by Mars. This means the almuten of Venus is Mars. Mars is in the bounds of Saturn. But note the positions of the Lots of Eros (conjunct Saturn) and Nemesis (conjunct Venus). The Lot of Eros is Venus' lot and Nemesis is Saturn's lot. These two lots are themselves only 4 minutes of arc apart. The beneficence of Venus - it's ability to impart luck and happiness - is in the grip of Saturn (and of Mars).

Note that all of the Hermetic Lots are square their progenitor's positions. The Lot of Courage is square Mars; Necessity square Mercury; Victory square Jupiter. This is because the Lots of Fortune and Daimon are square the horizon and opposite each other. A listing of the lots' positions is shown below.

In conclusion, the day ruler and the hour ruler are both in the bounds of Saturn. The Moon's next aspect is sextile Jupiter (in the bounds of the malefic Mars). The outcome of the match, symbolised by the 4th house cusp, is in Mercury ruled Gemini, with the specific degree of the IC in the bounds of Mercury. Mercury tends to suggest unpredictability and surprise results. Mercury is trine the ascendant, Venus ruled Libra, in the bounds of Jupiter. What's not to like? The favourites should be a 'shoe-in'. But Jupiter and Venus are in the bounds of Mars and Mars is in the bounds of Saturn.

I'm going to say that this will be a real fight, a tough match that could go either way, but in my view the symbolism suggests that the underdogs will win.

The only game I watched was the Raiders game due to time difference in my country. It was indeed a tough and close game. Congrats with your predictions. Knowing what the outcome may be makes watching fun 😊

Thanks for your comments. I'm not sure I would say that I know the result before the end of the match! Astrology is never that certain. I find having a go at a prediction adds further excitement to watching the match!

Chiefs vs. Ravens

This game will be one of the high profile match ups of week two. The bookmakers favour the Chiefs, but as I write the odds are drifting on the Chiefs and tightening on the Ravens. This means the bookmakers are giving the Ravens a better chance of triumphing over the Chiefs. The Chiefs won in week one, and the Ravens lost in a very tight match against the Las Vegas Raiders (see prediction above).

To go against the bookies, the symbolism has to be very clearly in favour of the underdogs. What does this match chart hold for both teams?

In brief, my view is that the Chiefs will win here. There is not enough for the Ravens to prosper. The key is the powerful position of Venus, natural co-significator of the favourite, in its own bound, angular in the dynamic seventh house, in a mutual reception with Mars by sign. Mars is in the bounds of Saturn. This strengthens the symbolism for the Ravens, because Saturn is the natural significator of the 'dog. Mars rules the first house, the house of the favourite. Venus, the natural co-significator of the underdog, rules the seventh house, the house of the underdog. However, Saturn, the bound lord of Mars, although angular and in Aquarius, one of its own signs, is in the bounds of Venus, and all the links between the bounds positions point back to Venus, angular in its own bound. This is decisive in my view, and leads me to think that the Chiefs will win the match.

The outcome of the match is symbolised by the fourth house cusp. This is in Cancer, ruled by the Moon, in the bounds of Mercury. In many circumstances, Mercury, as bound lord of the fourth, would suggest an unpredictable outcome that might favour the underdogs. However Mercury is in Libra, ruled by Venus in its own bound, and is itself in the bounds of Venus. Both Daimon and Fortune are in the bounds of the benefics, favouring the Chiefs. The Moon is in the bounds of Jupiter. It will move, towards the end of the match, into the bounds of Mercury. However, I am not sure that this is decisively in favour of a Ravens' upset because of Mercury's position in the bounds of Venus.

So - the Chiefs to win this one. I think the bookmakers have this right.

The official NFL site has an interesting set of information about the match at:

https://www.nfl.com/games/chiefs-at-ravens-2021-reg-2

The data shows that to win the game, the Ravens need to run the ball, while the Chiefs need their passing game to be on form. Neither defense is particularly strong, suggesting that the Ravens running game could be decisive, but only if their defense is able to contain Mahomes' passing game.

See game chart attached below.

The underdogs won! By a point. This will be a game to learn from.

I am looking forward to seeing how the Packers Lions game plays out.
After last weeks 38-3 loss, perception is Packers should bounce back :)
Jackson finally gets one over Mahomes 🏈

Thanks for your comments. I'm disappointed about the Chiefs vs. Ravens match. It was a tough one to predict. I'm going to have a look at the methodology and see if there's anything to learn. Mercury is an interesting symbol in this context. I think I picked up on the possibility of a Ravens upset, but the Venus symbolism seemed to be too strong to overcome the Trickster.

The Packers vs. Lions prediction is a bit of a long shot if I'm honest. I think the match could go either way. The match might be won in the final minutes/seconds of the final quarter. Or even in overtime.

Thanks for your interest.

Packers vs. Lions

These teams meet on Monday night both having gone 0-1 in week one. The Packers suffered a humiliating loss at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. The Lions were beaten by the '49ers. The match is being played at the Packers' home ground in Wisconsin. The bookmakers heavily favour the Packers as do most pundits.

One of the most notable features of this game is that it is played immediately following the full moon, which is rising in Green Bay. This is also a full moon in the final degrees of Pisces, in the bounds of Saturn. The moon may enter Aries during play, as it changes sign at 22:12:45. It moves from the bounds of Saturn to the bounds of Mars at the same time.

The Packers, as favourites, are symbolised by Mars ruled Aries. Mars is in the bounds of Saturn in the Venus ruled sign of Libra. Venus is positioned in the bounds of Mercury, but in the Mars ruled sign of Scorpio. Hence there is a mutual reception between Mars and Venus. It should be noted that there is a mutual reception by bounds for Venus and Mercury.

The natural significators of the Packers, being favourites, are Venus and Jupiter. Jupiter is in Saturn ruled Aquarius in the bounds of Mars. It is trine Mercury in Libra. Venus is in Scorpio. L1 is Mars and the ascendant is in the bounds of Venus.

The natural significators of the Lions, as underdogs, are Mars and Saturn. Mars is in the bounds of Saturn; Saturn is in the bounds of Venus. L7 is Venus. The descendant is in the bounds of Mercury.

The moon is void of course until it enters Aries, when its next aspect is then an opposition to Mars. It goes on to conjunct Mars' lot (Courage), trine Saturn's lot (Nemesis) and sextile Saturn.

The outcome of the match is signified by L4, Moon, and the bounds of the IC Mars. Moon is VOC in the bounds of Saturn.

Fortune and Daimon are in the bounds of Mercury. The bound lord of the day ruler (Moon) is Saturn and the bound lord of the hour ruler (Venus) is Mercury.

What are we to make of the symbolism? Firstly, this is not a walkover for the Packers. The Lions have their fair share of astrological symbolism on their side. In many respects, their signficators outweigh those of the Packers. The Packers' strongest suit is the bounds placement of Saturn (Venus) and the mutual reception between Venus and Mars. However, if we switch by degree, Mars moves to its own bounds in Scorpio, and Venus moves to the descendant and the bounds Mercury. This potentially strengthens the hand of Mars in the game, as it goes to its own sign and bounds, and Venus, although it moves to it's own sign and is strengthened there, is placed at the mercy of the whims and wiles of Mercury.

Mercury has a significant role in this match. Mercury symbolises upsets and surprises, and the inherent unpredictability of the manifest world. In my view, the key symbolism here is the relationship between Venus and Mercury, including their mutual reception by bound. I'm going to go out on a limb on this game and say that the Lions will win in a topsy turvy match.

I hope you enjoyed the game Ed. Unfortunately my internet was down so I couldn’t watch the game. Judging by the boxscore it seemed a game of two halves. My gut feeling was Packers wouldn’t lose at Lambeau 😊

Panthers (2-0) vs. Texans (1-1)

The Panthers are heavily favoured in this match, coming off two strong wins. The learning of the Packers-Bears game, at least in part, is don't go against the bookies where they have a clear favourite! At least not unless the astrological symbolism is very strong. Another point of learning is to pay more attention to house placement of planets, particular if they are angular, and relate clearly to the rulership of key placements. One complication with this system is the allocation of benefics to the favourite, and malefics to the underdogs. In the Packers-Bears game, Aries rose, and being Mars ruled, suggests an advantage to the underdogs (Mars being natural co-significator of this team). However Mars was angular in the seventh by whole sign house, suggesting the Mars ruled Packers would overcome the Venus ruled Bears.

In this game, the same symbolism applies. Aries rises, giving Mars as sign ruler, to the Panthers. The degree of the ascendant is in the bounds of Jupiter. Mars is close to the seventh house cusp and Sun. This means Mars is combust, ordinarily a sign that Mars would be weakened by the strength of the Sun's rays. Mars is in Libra, ruled by Venus in Scorpio, hence the mutual reception remains in place. This, I think, strengthens the symbolism for the favourites. Mars is in the exaltation of Saturn, approaching trine to Saturn, and is in the bounds of Saturn. Saturn itself is in the bounds of Mercury in the succeedent eleventh house, albeit in its own sign Aquarius.

The seventh house cusp, for the underdogs, is in Libra, ruled by Venus in mutual reception with Mars, in the bounds of Saturn. Venus is in mutual reception by bound with Mercury. The weakness of Venus and Mars, both in detriment, is redeemed by their mutual reception.

The outcome of the match is shown by the fourth house cusp, in Cancer, in the bounds of Mars. The moon is exalted in Taurus, in the bounds of Venus, separating from the trine to Mars and approaching square to Saturn.

On balance, the angular Mars for the favourites wins the day here I believe. Although Saturn trines Mars from its own sign, Mars is dexter to Saturn. The is a right hand trine from Mars so Mars overcomes Saturn as it falls earlier in the zodiac. From Mars' point of view, Saturn is sinister and less able to effect its significations. Saturn is also retrograde and in the bounds of Venus, the natural co-significator of the favourites.

I think part of the learning from the earlier match is that if the underdog's natural significator rules the favourites' angle, unless that planet is in the house of the favourite, its power to affect the game positively for the underdog is diminished.

Therefore, I am going with the bookmakers on this one - the Panthers will win here, despite being at the Texans home ground.

Packers at the 49ers.

In the last Sunday night match the Packers travel to the 49ers stadium. The bookies predict a close match. The Packers odds are odds drifting as I write. The 49ers odds are tighening so the bookmakers are swinging behind the San Francisco team. The Packers are a strong defensive team, but are under-performing offensively, in rushing and passing. The 49ers are a solid team in all areas of the game, with stats that give them a mid-field position relative to their rivals.

Favourites - 49ers

Primary Natural Significator (PNS) - Jupiter

Jupiter is in the bounds of Mars, close to ascendant, having just risen at the start of the match

Primary Natural Co-Significator (PNC) - Venus

Venus is in the bounds of Mercury in Scorpio, a Mars ruled sign, in mutual reception with Mars, in angular WSH tenth

Ruler - Saturn

With Aquarius rising, the 49ers are Saturn ruled, with Saturn in Aquarius in the first WSH. Saturn is in the bounds of Venus

Bound Lord of the Ascendant - Saturn

The rising degree is in the bounds of Saturn, with Saturn in the first WSH in dignity.

Using refined method, Saturn is co-opted for the favourites, being the ruler of the first house and in the first house in its own sign in the bounds of Venus albeit retrograde. Co-option of a rival's natural significator seems to diminish the resources of the opponents, in this case the Packers who are underdogs.

The Packers

PNS - Saturn

For analysis of Saturn in this match chart see above. Saturn is lost to the dog as it is co-opted by the 49ers as favourites.

PNC - Mars

Mars is in Libra, ruled by Venus and in mutual reception with Venus. Mars is in the bounds of Mercury, in mixed reception with Venus by rulership and bound, and in mutual reception by bounds with Venus

Lord of the Descendant - Sun

With Leo setting, the Sun is signification for the Packers. The Sun in the bounds of Saturn in Venus ruled Libra. Sun is in the WSH ninth.

Bound Lord of the Descendant

Mars is the bound lord of the descendant degree, for further significations see PNC for the Packers

Outcome Significations

Lord of the Fourth - Mercury

With Gemini on the IC, the outcome is ruled by Mercury. The degree of the IC is in bounds of Jupiter. Mercury is in Libra, ruled by Venus. Mercury is approaching its station, being very slow in motion and due to retrograde very soon. Mercury is trine Jupiter. All planets are in air signs, except Venus.

Moon, changes bounds quite soon into match from Jupiter to Venus, both natural significators of the favourite. Moon separates from its trines to Sun, Mars and Saturn, and approaches trine Mercury and Jupiter. The Moon is the hour ruler of the chart.

Summary

This is a challenging game to predict. The weight of signification seems to be behind the 49ers as favourites. The PNS of the Packers, Saturn, has been co-opted by the favourites and seems to be working for them. The Packers strongest card is the bound lord of the descendant, being Mars, which is also the bound lord of Jupiter, the 49ers primary significator. However, Mars is in mutual reception with Venus, the PNC of the favourites. The Packers ruling planet, Sun, is in it's fall and in the bounds of Saturn.

The outcome is ruled by Mercury, in the bounds of Venus. With Venus in the bounds of Mercury, there is a mutual reception by bounds between the two of them. This suggests to me that Mercury, for all its unpredictability, works for the 49ers, and with the Packers' strongest significator, Mars, in the bounds of Mercury, with the trickster in mixed reception with Venus, the PNC for the favourites, I am tempted to say that the 49ers will steal the match. Mercury is due to retrograde very soon, perhaps suggesting a reversal of the bookies' fortunes, and that of the 49ers. However the bound lord of the IC is Jupiter, indicating a 49ers victory. The Moon, as hour ruler, is in the bounds of Jupiter, moving to the bounds of Venus in match time, and to the trine of Mercury and Jupiter.

With all planets bar Venus in air signs, the long passing game could be decisive. This pitches the 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo against the evergreen Aaron Rodgers, last year's MVP. With every phase of the game working for the Packers they would be favourites here, but after a stunning GB loss in week 1, the 49ers have more momentum at this early stage of the season.

The Packers could sneak this, but on balance, I think the bookies have this one right, and the 49ers will just prevail.

https://www.nfl.com/games/packers-at-49ers-2021-reg-3

Half-time Report

Packers 17 49ers 7

The 49ers get a last second TD in the second quarter to regain some ground on the Packers. However, it will be an uphill battle here for the SF team. This match is a good test for the interpretation of mutual receptions. I have said that the reception favours the 49ers, on the basis that Venus is the PNC for the 49ers (Venus as PNC for the 49ers in the WSH 10th angular trumps Mars as PNC for the Packers in the WSH 9th ). It's clear that Mercury, Venus and Mars are central to the outcome of the match (bound lord of IC is Jupiter and and Jupiter is in the bounds of Mars. Mars in turn is in the bounds of Mercury, Venus in mixed and mutual reception with Mercury), and on reflection there's no clear reason why the reception shouldn't favour the 'dog. The question is how to determine the priority of Mars over Venus or vice versa.

One option would be to look at the planets' relationship with the angles. In this match Mars is the bound lord of the descendant, clearly for the Packers as this angle is the underdog's primary position. Jupiter, the PNS for the favourite is in the bounds of Mars. Jupiter is also bound lord of the IC. Venus, on the other hand, doesn't feature as a significator for any position, by rulership or bound. Venus is in detriment, being opposite own of its own signs Taurus. Mars is also in detriment, being in Libra opposite one of the signs it rules, Aries. There doesn't seem to be anything to split the pair at this level.

If we look at planetary speed etc, we see that Mars is setting heliacally (losing it's power to the Sun as it is coming to the end of an heliacal cycle) and is moving at its own average speed. Venus on the other hand is fast, distant from the Sun (not combust or under beams) and heliacally rising. Venus is becoming stronger in relation to the Sun. This would be one possibility for determining the relative priority of Mars and Venus.

It may also be of note that the Packers own ruler, the Sun, is in fall in Libra being opposite the sign of its exaltation. Based on this analysis I think I will stand by my original prediction, but the outcome of the match is going to be instructive in the development of this system of sports astrology.

Midway through Q3 the 49ers are back in the match, 14-17 to the Packers.

Post-match

The Packers won, just. The underdog won with a field goal inside the final minute of match. It was pretty clear that this would be a close match based on the astrology. I think the simplest learning point is that the winner must have bound lord symbolism in one of the key positions associated with the match. In this case, the 49ers did not have specific bound symbolism related to one of the angles, either the first, seventh or fourth house cusp. See analysis above relating to Venus and its relevance to the match and the 49ers chances. 

However the bound lord of the IC is Jupiter, indicating a 49ers victory. This sentence is from the summary above. The error here is that Jupiter, correctly identified as the PNS for the favourites, the 49ers, is in the bounds of Mars. Mars, in mutual reception with Venus, creates the significations for the Packers' victory, with trickster Mercury in mutual reception with Venus by bound and mixed by rulership and bound. Mars is bound lord of the descendant, strengthening the Packers' hand. In the end, bound symbolism seems to be decisive, which is where this experiment began with the Euro finals.

So much was right! But the prediction was ultimately wrong.

Eagles vs. Cowboys

This is Monday night's game. The Eagles play the Cowboys who are the home team. The Cowboys are clear favourites, with odds drifting for the Eagles. This means that the bookies are moving behind the Cowboys and downplaying the chances of the Eagles. The Cowboys are relatively weak defensively, but strong in all other areas of the game. The Eagles are very strong on the ground and defensively but are relatively weak offensively and passing. It looks like the Eagles will have to run the ball to win here.

Dallas Cowboys - favourites

Primary Natural Significator (PNS) - Jupiter

Jupiter is in Saturn ruled Aquarius, in the bounds of Mars, in the succeedent WHS 11th.

Primary Natural Co-Significator (PNC) - Venus

Venus is in Mars ruled Scorpio, in mutual reception with Mars in Libra. Venus is in the bounds of Jupiter in the succeedent WSH 8th.

Ruler of the First House - Mars

Mars is in Venus ruled Libra in mutual reception with Venus in Scorpio. Mars is in the bounds of Mercury in WSH 7th.

Bound lord - Jupiter

Outcome

Ruler of the IC - Moon

Moon is in Mercury ruled Gemini, in the bounds of Mars, approaching trine to Mercury.

Bound lord - Mars

See significations for ruler of the first house

Hour ruler - Sun in the bounds of Saturn, close to Mars and the seventh cusp, but Saturn itself is in the bounds of Venus, PNC for the favourites

Dynamic factors

Moon changes bounds in match time from Mars to Saturn, but Saturn is in the bounds of Venus, PNC for the favourites.

Summary

The weight of significations here clearly favour the Cowboys. Although Venus, as PNC of the favourites, is in aversion to the first WSH, it is also in aversion to the seventh WSH, which it rules. Venus' impact on the game seems limited, but its mutual reception with Mars strongly suggests that it works for the Cowboys, as both PNC and being in a Mars ruled sign. The lord of the first house is Mars and, as such, has been co-opted by the favourites, although it is the PNC of the underdog.

The Eagles have the Sun in their house, close to Mars, making Mars combust. However, Mars' kinship with the Sun, both being hot and dry, doesn't seem to undermine the power of Mars, and may, in fact, strengthen its significations. Mercury is also in the Eagles' house, but it is in the bounds of Venus, and Venus is ruled by Mars and is in the bounds of Jupiter. The Eagles' strongest card is Saturn, retrograde in it's own sign in the WSH eleventh, but in the bounds of Venus.

Summary

The astrological significations are clearly behind the Cowboys here, who should prosper at the expense of the Eagles.

Jaguars @ Bengals (30 Sept 2021, 20:20)

The bookmakers have the Bengals as favourites in this match, with home ground advantage as well. The Bengals go into the match 2-1, whilst the Jags are 0-3. The teams are evenly matched statistically, apart from defense, where the Bengals are much more highly rated. The Jags could struggle to score big in this match, and if their defense is leaky, the Bengals should have no trouble dispatching them to 0-4.

Bengals - favourites

Natural Significator (NS) - Jupiter

Jupiter is in Saturn ruled Aquarius, in the WSH tenth (hence angular). It's in the bounds of Mars, the NC of the underdog. Jupiter is retrograde and slowing towards its direct station. It is beginning to fade after it's opposition to the Sun.

Natural Co-Significator (NC) - Venus

Venus is in Mars ruled Scorpio, in the WSH 7 (hence angular) in the bounds of Jupiter, the NS of the favourites. Mars is the NC of the underdog. Venus is square Jupiter, just separating. Venus is still stretching ahead of the Sun, so heliacally rising and becoming brighter in the evening sky.

Ruler of the First House - Venus

See NC.

Bound lord - Venus

See NC

Jaguars - underdogs

NS - Saturn

Saturn is strong in its own sign Aquarius. It is angular in the WSH tenth and elevated. Saturn is in the bounds of Mercury, having just retrograded out of the bounds of Venus. It is slow, and fading, as the Sun catches up with it, and approaching its direct station.

NC - Mars

Mars is in Venus ruled Libra, hence in mutual reception with the NC of the favourites. Mars is in the bounds of Mercury and closely conjunct the approaching Sun, so combust, in the WSH sixth. Mars is disappearing in to the light of the Sun, about to begin a new synodic cycle. Mars is potentially weakened in this condition, but is somewhat redeemed by its mutual reception with Venus. However both planets are in detriment, being in signs opposite to the signs in which they rule.

Ruler of the Seventh House - Mars

The Jags NC rules the seventh house. See above.

Bound lord - Mars

See above.

Outcome

Ruler of the IC - Moon

Moon is in the final degree of Cancer, its own sign. During the game it is dynamically involved through sign change and bounds change. Moon will move into Leo and the bounds of Jupiter within the first hour of play. The Moon in Cancer is in dignity and just about to enter the WSH fourth. This dynamic factor suggests a critical stage of play at around 20:53-20:54. Until that time, the Moon is void of course within that sign.

Bound lord - Mercury

Mercury is Venus ruled Libra, retrograde in the bounds of Venus, in the WSH sixth.

Hour ruler - Moon

See Ruler of the IC.

Dynamic Factors

See Ruler of the IC.

Other Factors

Mutual reception between Venus and Mars. Mixed receptions between Mercury and Saturn, and Venus and Mars.

The Lots of Eros (Venus), Courage (Mars) and Victory (Jupiter), for a tight tense arrangement at the beginning of fixed signs. The Lot of Courage is close to the ascendant in the bounds of Venus. The Moon will go on to aspect these points once it enters Leo and the bounds of Jupiter.

Summary

Mercury, Venus and Mars remain the key players here. Both teams have their own NC as rulers and as bound lord. Jupiter, as NS for the favourites is in the bounds of Mars. Saturn, as NS of the 'dog, is in the bounds of Mercury, subject to the wiles of the trickster. Venus and Mars are in mutual reception.

The challenge for the underdogs is the key signification for them - being Mars (NC) and Mercury (outcome) - are in the WSH sixth, in aversion to the first and the seventh WSH houses. This suggests that these planets have limited opportunities to influence the outcome of the match.

Their NS, Saturn, albeit retrograde, is in a better position to influence the match, being angular, in dignity, elevated and in the bounds of Mercury. However it does not have any signification by bound, and relies on the trickster to express its power.

The key signification for the favourites is the NC Venus. Venus is in mutual reception with weakening Mars (being combust), so potentially has the upper hand. It is also angular in the seventh house by whole sign, which makes it angular, along with the NS for the favourites, Jupiter.

I am tempted to say that the angular placement of Venus and Jupiter, and the overall power of Venus, is to the advantage of the Bengals. So the Bengals to win and the Jaguars to go 0-4. This is a very difficult start for rookie QB the well-rated Clemson alumnus Trevor Lawrence.

Post-match

The Bengals came through in this match, although the scoreline suggests a tight game.
