Cup Finals – 2014 – Spain, England, Germany and Portugal

What can you say about the horary charts for the football cup finals – 2014 – in Spain, England, Germany and Portugal? Could we really have predicted the winners with Astrology?

Note: This is a research article following a series of posts dedicated to the European Football Finals. This analysis follows John Frawley’s method as explained in his book Sports Astrology. Predicting sports events is not really the best use for Astrology compared to its enormous potential as a self-awareness tool, in my opinion. Nonetheless, it is very interesting to understand how it works in such cases.

SPAIN – COPA DEL REY 2014 – 16th April 2014 – 9.30 pm – Valencia

BARCELONA vs REAL MADRID

COPA-DEL-REY-BARÇA-VS-REALMADRID

(Note: in the day of the final, before the match, we posted on facebook this analysis – most likely winner – Real Madrid)

Barcelona were regarded as favourites before the match started. So, according to this method, Barça is represented by the 1st House and its ruler (Mars) and by the 10th house and its ruler (Sun). Real Madrid is represented by 7th House and its ruler (Venus) ans by the 4th house and its ruler (Saturn).

Arguments for Barcelona:

– Saturn opposes Part of Fortune

– Moon makes no aspects within 5 degrees (except MC/IC axis)

Arguments for Real Madrid

– Sun conjuncts SouthNode (within less than 2 degrees)

– Moon’s antiscion conjuncts 4th house cusp

– Moon faces Saturn (within 6º30 orb)

In general, as the Moon makes a square (to MC/IC) at least 2 goals were expected; Real Madrid had more testimonies in its favour.

FINAL RESULT : Barcelona 1 – Real Madrid 2 (in regular time)

WINNER: Real Madrid

 

ENGLAND – FA CUP FINAL 2014 – 17th MAY 5.00 pm – London

ARSENAL vs HULL CITY

FA-CUP-2014-ARSENAL-vs-HULLCITY

Favourites (according to the bookies): Arsenal

In this match, the Moon rules the 10th house . According to Frawley we can ignore the Moon as significator of the Favourite (and also Saturn, as one of the underdogs significator). Arsenal is represented by the 1st House and Venus; and by the 10th House. Hull City is represented by the 7th house and Mars; and by the 4th House.

Testimonies for Arsenal:

-Venus is located over the 7the Cusp – dominating it. This is probably the strongest testimony ever in a match chart.

Testimonies for Hull City:

– Moon makes an applying aspect to Mars (its last aspect within 5 degrees) . Very strong testimony.

– Part of Fortune is combust (smaller testimony).

Conclusion:

In general, very balanced testimonies for each team. As the Moon squares Mars we could expect at least one goal for Hull City and at least 2 goals in the final result.

FINAL RESULT : ARSENAL 3 – HULL CITY 2 (after extra-time, 2-2 in regular time)

WINNER: ARSENAL

We could say that such a strong position of the ruler of the 1st house (Arsenal) was almost impossible to overcome. Also because it is an argument more sensitive to the exact hour of the match than Moon’s aspects.

 

GERMANY – CUP FINAL 2014 – 17th MAY 8.00 pm – Berlin

BAYERN MUNCHEN vs BORUSSIA DORTMUND

GERMAN2014-CUPFINAL-BAYERN-VS-DORTMUND

Bayern were favourites. So Bayern were ruled by : the 1st House, Mars; the 10th House; Mercury. Borussia were ruled by: the 7th House; Venus; the 4th House; Jupiter.

Arguments for Bayern:

– The Moon applies to Mars within a 5 degrees orb (very strong testimony). It is the Moon’s last aspect.

Arguments for Borussia:

– Saturn (general malefic) conjuncts the Ascendant (minor, but important, testimony)

Because the Moon makes a square to Mars we would expect Bayern’s victory (scoring at least 2 goals, in my point of view, since squares have more energy). However, Saturn’s position could mean a delay.

FINAL RESULT:  BAYERN 2 – BORUSSIA – 0 (after extra-time, 0-0 in regular time)

WINNER: BAYERN

 

PORTUGAL – CUP FINAL 2014 – 18th MAY 5.15 pm – Lisbon (official time of the match)

BENFICA vs RIO AVE

TACA-PORTUGAL-2014-BENFICAvsRIOAVE

Favourites (according to the bookies): Benfica (champion 2014)

In this match, the Moon rules the 10th house . According to Frawley we can ignore the Moon as significator of the Favourite (and also Saturn, as one of the underdogs significator). Benfica is represented by the 1st House and Venus; and by the 10th House. Rio Ave is represented by the 7th house and Mars; and by the 4th House.

Arguments for Benfica:

– Antiscion of the Part of Fortune (21º28′ Cancer) just inside the 10th House (very strong testimony).

Arguments for Rio Ave:

– Venus located just inside the 7th house: if the match starts on time, this is one of the strongest arguments ever, for a favourite’s defeat.

– The Moon separates from a square to Venus (minor testimony)

– The Moon applies to Mars’ Antiscion (20º58′ Piscis)

– The Moon is located over the IC, the 4th House cusp.

– The Moon applies to oppose the Antiscion of Fortune (strong testimony)

So we have many arguments for the underdogs, Rio Ave, and only one for Benfica.

However, the match did not start at 5.15 pm but at 5.20 pm – 5 minutes after the announced time. So the correct chart would be:

TAÇA-PORTUGAL-2014-REAL

And as we can see, the position of Venus, ruler of Benfica, is now very different. It is over the 7th Cusp, hence, dominating the opponent.

So the correct arguments would be:

Arguments for Benfica:

– Antiscion of the Part of Fortune (21º28′ Cancer) just inside the 10th House (very strong testimony).

– Venus on the 7th cusp – one of the strongest testimonies, ever, for the favourites victory.

Arguments for Rio Ave:

– The Moon separates from a square to Venus (minor testimony)

– The Moon applies to Mars’ Antiscion (20º58′ Piscis)

– The Moon is located over the IC, the 4th House cusp.

– The Moon applies to oppose the Antiscion of Fortune

So we have strong arguments for both teams, even though, Venus position along with Part of Fortune’s Antiscion should be enough to garantee Benfica’s victory with a tight result.

FINAL RESULT : BENFICA 1 – RIO AVE 0 (in regular time)

WIINNER: BENFICA
