Before the start of the Premier League on August 18, I hope to finish my observations and ideas how the football charts should be read to reach a reliable judgement. So far, and it relates to other forums as well I have visited, predictions have been unsatisfactory, roughly statistically below 50%. I hope to increase the figures up to 75% and higher if others contribute to research.

We need a scientifically verifiable (measurable) method which are proved by statistics.

Below I will lay out the rules and considerations which, in my opinion, are material in judging football charts.

ALGORYTHM FOR JUDGING FOOTBALL CHARTS

INTRODUCTION

The material is a compilation of the observations from judging more than 1000 different level football charts over the period of year and a half. The principles set forth here do not guarantee 100% success, but if the rules are strictly followed and applied with reason, one should achieve 75% accuracy regardless of the level of football, the number of teams playing at the same time, almost identical charts, and all other stuff of the kind astrologers find annoying when judging football charts.

I use only the event charts and do not bother with the foundation charts of the teams, the natal charts of coaches or top players, transits, directions and all other prediction tools and techniques. The rules are based on the traditional horary principles; they are relatively simple and can be mastered by everyone.

To judge a football chart (an event chart), we need to know 1) time and place (exact coordinates of the stadium) of the game, 2) the colours of the teams’ kits, 3) the bookmakers’ odds for the teams, 3) their place in the league table (particularly taking into consideration whether the team is about to be promoted or relegated), 4) the current form, 5) head - to - head statistics, and 6) the home form for the host and the away form for the visitor. I will discuss all of the components specifically in the relevant chapters below.

1. TIME AND PLACE

The time for the games can be found out from www.soccer24.com, www.flashscore.com and others. The time is usually given for the Central Europe time zone which is GMT + 1 hour during the winter autumn- winter period and + 2 hours during the spring- summer period. Remember that you must convert the time agreeably to the time zone where the game is played or else you get a wrong chart. For instance, if a game is played in Great Britain or Portugal, the time zone is GMT during the autumn-winter period and GMT + 1 hour during the spring-summer period.

The place (exact coordinates of the stadium) can be found out from Wikipedia by clicking on the name of the stadium.

2. KITS’ COLOURS

Kits’ colours of the teams you can find out from Wikipedia. Sometimes the colours indicated in Wikipedia differ from the actual worn ones, therefore for the sake of security have a look into the official site of the relevant team. If there is no official site, look for some videos or photos in the Internet.


3. BOOKMAKERS’ ODDS

Bookmakers’ odds you can find out from www.soccer24.com, www.flashscore.com and other sites. For comparison of odds, you can visit www.betexplorer.com.

The bookmakers’ odds do reflect the bookmakers’ expectations who will win. They are not taken out of the blue but are a compilation of the teams’ position in the league table, current form, home performance for the host, away performance for the visitor, head-to-head statistics, information about injured players and speculative considerations how to attract the players to bet all ways (to evenly distribute payouts with respect to all positions). Do not be tempted to think that the bookmakers’ odds always objectively reflect the actual balance of strength. Far from that; and if you spot it, you may profit from such irregularities.

As rough guidelines, you can use the considerations below how the odds reflect the actual strength of the teams. Regardless of whether you bet or not, the knowledge of how odds work is of vital importance if you wish to predict the winner.

The first group of odds ranges from 1.01 to 1.10. The first team in this group of odds is an absolute favourite, therefore the underdog is rated at 20.00 and longer odds (in terms of return you can get 20 EUR for a 1 EUR stake). Draw between the teams is usually rated at 8.00 and longer odds, even a moderate handicap - 0.5/1.5 is decently priced and worth betting. To judge that the result would be moved away from the favourite, we need a lot of specific negative testimonies (which we shall discuss in subsequent chapters). Such short odds are given if Barcelona or Real Madrid plays a home game against a team from the bottom of the league. A couple of times per season you could be right backing the underdog at such long odds, however from an astrological perspective it is very hard to rightly predict the underdog’s victory. Saying that the favourite would win on the basis of astrological considerations is a ridiculous stuff, for can say that they know it very well without consulting astrology. So far I have a few example charts in which the underdog has managed to win despite any odds and expectations. Draw usually is a correct prediction if the chart shows grave afflictions, and the underdog should score if the affliction is middling (we shall discuss the scale of afflictions in subsequent chapters).

The second group of odds ranges from 1.10 – 1.25. In this group of odds the underdog is rated at 15.00 – 10.00 (in terms of return you can get at least 10 EUR for a 1 EUR stake). Here we do not need so grave afflictions as in the first case to predict that the result would be moved away from the favourite. Moderately grave afflictions (we shall discuss which ones) could prove to be enough for at least a draw. Statistically, the result is moved away from the favourite in 1 out of 10 cases.

If the odds are 1.25 – 1.40 for the favourite, the underdog is rated at approx. 10.00 – 7.50. With the increase of figures, the less afflictive testimonies we need to predict that the result would be moved away from the favourite. Under such odds, the result is statistically moved away from the favourite in 1 out of 8/9 cases.

If the odds are 1.40 – 1.60 for the favourite, the underdog is rated at 7.50 - 5.50. In such charts, a couple of afflictive testimonies (which ones we shall discuss) might be enough to predict the underdog’s victory.

If the odds are 1.60 – 1.80, the underdog is rated at 5.50 – 4.25. Statistically, the result is moved away from the favourite in 1 out of 6 - 5 cases (however, it depends on the level of the league or tournament and country – Latin and Arab countries play more unpredictably than European countries).

If the odds are 1.80 – 2.00 for the favourite, the underdog is rated at 4.25 – 3.50. Statistically, the result is moved away in at least 1 out of 4 cases.

If the odds are 2.00 – 2.30 for the favourite, the underdog is rated at 3.50- 2.80. Statistically, the favourite wins about 50% of the games, the other half draw or the underdogs win.

If the odds are 2.30 - 2.50, the underdog is rated at 3.00 – 2.50. The home team is a marginal favourite and statistically wins about 40 - 45% of the games.

If the odds are equal on both sides 2.50 - 2.70, the marginal favourite is the away team (unless playing on a neutral pitch), and it usually wins in 4/5 cases out of 10.

4. PLACE IN LEAGUE TABLE, CURRENT FORM, HOME AND AWAY PERFORMANCE AND HEAD –TO-HEAD STATISTICS

First of all, I must warn all to pay particular attention to statistics; never make a prediction before you have not checked statistics. Statistics is one of the most significant elements of the judgement. Even if you do not draw a chart for a game, you can rely that you will be correct in 4/5 cases out of 10 on the basis of statistics alone. If the teams have played a draw 5 out of 6 their last head-to –head games, statistically there is roughly 80% probability that they would draw the 7th derby. There might be teams which are particularly good at home or away; some have never won away, some struggle at home. There might be a team who is under a spell and has not won its opponent for more than a decade or so irrespective of their places in the league table and consequently the odds.

Sometimes the only reason why the result failed to meet the expectations (including astrological ones) is statistics (or being under a spell). One and the same astrological considerations could have proved reliable in 10 out of 10, but there is a game which goes contrary to logics and well working observation driving you mad and making think that the outcome of a football game cannot be predicted from an event chart.

This should be a subject matter for further research what astrological indications break the spell. It is good to get know the date, place and time when the spell begun.

Likewise, if the team has not lost, for instance, 30 home games in a row, it would be good to get to know the date and time when the series begun. And whatever the event chart suggests, the team will not be defeated until there appear some astrological indications which put the amazing series to end. This should be also a subject matter for further astrological research.

Take also into consideration such statistical elements (if available) as ever (season’s) longest winning (draw) streaks, streaks without win, scoring (without scoring) streaks and similar stuff.

There are some astrological considerations which tend to repeat statistics both current form and head – to – head ones. We shall discuss them in further chapters. In general, radical charts (see chapter 6), in particular if the lord of hour is a superior, fixed angles and their rulers fixed, the lord of hour in a fixed sign or retrograde, a void Moon, particularly if in a fixed sign, tend to repeat statistics, however can be overruled by other stronger testimonies, such as the angularity of the planets.

Remember that the favourite in astrological terms is not always a team with shorter odds (or a well – known team), but the one who is occupying a higher place in the league table, who is showing a better form and, in particular, who has a better head - to – head statistics.

All what you need, i.e. the place in the league table, current form, home performance for the host, away performance for the visitors and head – to - head statistics can be found at www.betexplorer.com, www.bet365.com and other sites.

5. WHO IS WHO?

There are several methods used or suggested by astrologers how to determine the planets signifying the teams.

The first one is to ascribe the ruler of the ascending sign to the odds favourite and the ruler of the descending sign to the underdog and then judge who of them is stronger. I have tested it fairly enough and found it unsatisfactory and unreliable for the purpose of astrological judgement. Even if scrupulously applied, it has proven correct roughly in 4/5 cases out of 10. The method failed completely when tested on UK Saturday’s run – of –the - mill games at 15:00 o’clock (tossing a coin seems to be a better method, for it has usually yielded better results).

The other method rigorously used is to ascribe the rulers of the ascending and descending signs agreeably to the colours of the teams’ jerseys worn for the relevant game. Some claim that ASC is all about appearance. If it is a horary, natal or election chart, then the questioner or the native and their appearance are signified by the ascending sign (the first house), planets herein and its ruler. If the questioner supports one of the teams, then there is a well – founded reason to ascribe the planets just as said above for it can be regarded as an extension of yourself (just as saying ‘we won’ although the questioner himself not playing on the pitch). But there is no rationale to ascribe planets the said way if the teams are randomly selected for betting or other similar purpose and the questioner’s only concern is how to profit from the outcome of the game. In such case both teams should, from an astrological viewpoint, be ascribed the ruler of the descending sign. But we must somehow distinguish the teams.

I also do not see strong supportive arguments for ascribing the ascending sign and its ruler to the home team or the team who first kicks the ball from the centre of the pitch. It simply does not work.

After trying many methods, I have found that there is a one which works fairly well. The method is to ascribe planets conformably to the colours of the kits regardless which sign is rising. I started to test the method ascribing the planets conformably to the actual jerseys’ colours the teams were wearing on the pitch, but ended up with ascribing the planets only conformably to the home colours (in particular for the famous teams such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Madrid Real, Barcelona, etc.), the planets agreeing with the actual colours using for auxiliary testimonies.

Even if we ascribe the planets in accordance with the method described below, it does not provide 100% guarantee that the planets are ascribed correctly. There are teams which are better signified by their nicknames (can be found in Wikipedia) or the pictures (and colours) of their emblems than by the colours of their jerseys. A good deal of the teams are named after the city (in particular in UK) they represent and then the ruler of the relevant city plays a crucial part in a prediction. For instance, Birmingham seems to be a Virgo ruled city and the club named Birmingham, though wearing deep - blue jerseys (Jupiter colours), is very vulnerable to Mercury’s position in the event charts, in particular when at the first and second station and at the beginning of retrograde motion. Liverpool is vulnerable to any afflictions of Scorpio and its ruler Mars. There is an obvious correlation between the performance of a team and the condition of the ruler of the city the team is named after. Regarding many cities we do not know the relevant rulers, though their influence on the outcome of a game we cannot rule out. It should be a subject matter for further research.

Saturn’s colours are black, white and black (white/black stripes, squares), grey and dark pale colours, dark green and black, dark blue, dark blue and black, light blue with black (black dominating), dark brown, dark red with black, black and yellow (black dominating) and all other very dark shades of colours.

Jupiter’s colours are blue, claret, pomegranate, violet, purple, lush green, blue mixed with red (like Barcelona’s jerseys).

Mars’s colours are red, luminescent black and all other aggressive shades of colours.

Sun’s colours are yellow, orange, gold, red mixed with yellow.

Venus’s colours are light blue (sky blue), light green, pink, rosy, white/green stripes.

Mercury’s colours are light yellow (near to pale), white/blue stripes (white dominating), composition of light colours, kits with 3 and more colours, light kits with squares.

Moon’s colours are white and silver.

I will provide an example how to determine who is who. Suppose, Sagittarius is rising and one of our teams wear red jerseys but the other black ones. Despite that the ASC – DSC axis is ruled by Jupiter and Mercury, our planets, whose accidental strength and other factors we are to evaluate, are Mars for the first team (read) and Saturn for the second team (black).

1. Assign planets conformably to the colours regardless which signs are on the ASC – DSC axis.

2. In assigning the planets, use the colours of the home jersey also for the away team in particular if the away team is a favourite or a club with a long history.

(a) If the colours of the host’s jersey are the same as the visitor’s home jersey, such as red for the host and red for the visitor, use Mars for the favourite; if there is no favourite, use Mars for the home team. You do not need even a planet for the other team, the judgement depends solely on the condition of Mars (if in a place of strength (angle) and not afflicted, judge a win for the team (of course taking into consideration other factors), if in a middling place and/or not seriously afflicted, judge a draw, if weak and/or seriously afflicted, judge a defeat).

(b) However, if you see that a planet agreeing with the colours of one team actually worn on the pitch is particularly strong or, on the contrary, weak and/or seriously afflicted (we shall discuss afflictions in further chapters below), use that planet as a significator for the relevant team. Example: the host’s jersey is red, whereas the visitor’s home jersey is also red. For that particular game the visitor is wearing a white jersey (Moon). The visitor is the bookmakers’ favourite. Pursuant to (a) above, the visitor should have been assigned Mars as their significator. If you see the Moon (white) is particularly strong in the chart (for instance, angular, increasing in light, well aspected (regarded) by benefics, etc.), or on the contrary, seriously afflicted, then you should use the Moon as the significator for that team and judge from her condition. It seems that in such cases the team concerned has just happened to wear a “fortune” (right) or a “misfortune” (wrong) jersey.

(c) Suppose, Liverpool is hosting Manchester United. Considering the current balance of strength, Manchester United might be regarded as a marginal favourite, but Mars (whatever be his condition) should be assigned to Liverpool.

3. If the colours differ but still are governed by one and the same planet (such as light blue, light green and pink are all Venus’s colours), follow the instruction in 2 (b) above; however take into consideration that in domiciles of Jupiter Venus prefers light blue, in fiery signs (except Sagittarius) and domiciles of Mars she prefers pink, in her own domiciles and Capricorn green, in Aquarius blue; if eastern, she prefers blue to green, if western, the contrary; joined to Jupiter she prefers blue, if joined to Mars, pink, if to Saturn, green.

4. In determining the ruling planets always take into considerations the nicknames, the pictures and colours of the emblems and the rulers of the relevant cities if known and tested. Sometimes one of these factors proves to be a key to a correct judgment. For instance if the team is nicknamed as the “kings”, the Sun is very relevant even if they wear black jerseys (Saturn).

The next chapter will deal with the radicality of the charts where we will discuss the relationship between the lord of the day, the lord of the hour, the ASC and its ruler. I hope to finish the material by next Wednesday (8 August).

6. HOUSE SYSTEMS AND RADICALITY OF THE CHART

In this chapter we shall shortly deal with the house systems and then dwell on the correlation amongst the lord of day, the lord of hour, the nature of the ascending sign and its ruler.

As football charts have no topics, there is also no particular need for using any quadrant – based house system (Regiomontanus, Placidus and others). You can get along with whole-sign houses. Whole signs are traditionally used to determine the strength of the planets. How it is to be done in football charts we shall discuss in further chapters. I personally use Placidus (by default) house system from which one can easy read (by the position of the Sun in a house) which hour it is and thus the planet ruling the hour.

With respect to the ABC of the „radicality” I recommend to read www.astronor.com/hours.htm where Andrew Bevan briefly (with understading) discuses the topic. Here suffice to mention that the tradition of planetary hours originates from the ancient division of day and night, each into 12 equal portions of time. The planets – Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury and Moon - then rule these portions, called hours, in a regular order. The 7 days of the week receive their name from the planet that rules the first hour of that day, i.e. the Sun rules the first hour of Sunday, the Moon the first hour of Monday, etc. This planet becomes the Lord of the day.

Note that the astrological day begins at sunrise.
Planetary hours are calculated by the division of the interval of time between sunrise and sunset in the appropriate location. Do not use other calculations (approximations) for determining the planet ruling the hour. They are not reliable.

Traditionally, a radical chart is a one where there is a certain agreement between the planet ruling the astrological hour and the ascending sign or its ruler; to the best of my knowledge, no traditional author instructs, save in connection with certain elections, to take into consideration also the lord of day to determine whether the chart is radical or not In our algorithm we will use also the lord of the day. Why? An event chart is more akin to an election chart than a horary. Success in an election depends on selection of an appropriate time; likewise the outcome of a football game depends, to a great extent, on a good time.

Although it is a subject matter for further research, I suppose that the lord of day is the boss and the lord of hour is the partner. The boss is not directly involved in the business; the business at a particular hour is run by the lord of the hour but must be sanctioned by the lord of the day, in other words, there must be some kind of cooperation between them for a smooth running of the business.

The business runs as it should if the lord of the day and the lord of the hour are the planets belonging to one and the same sect or agreeing in nature, such as Sun and Jupiter and Jupiter and Venus.

The business goes wrong (favours underdog or otherwise provides unusual score line)

1) if the lord of the day and the lord of the hour are planets belonging to different sect and both are out of sect in an event chart, for instance, Saturn is the lord of the day and above the horizon by night and Venus is the lady of the hour and below the horizon at the same time; the same is true, although to a lesser extent, if both planets belong to the same sect but both are out of sect in an event chart;

2) if the lord of the day and the lord of the hour are planets ruling the opposite signs and are in a hard aspect (opposition is the worst), unless there is reception, and, in particular if the Moon is in a stake from the Sun (in the same sign or in the 4th, 7th and 10th signs from the Sun, the closer to partile is the Moon’s application to the Sun (i.e. the aspect the Moon is making with the Sun), the stronger is the effect; it is called “the opening of the gates” in Arab classics;

3) if the domicile lords or the exaltation lords of the signs the lord of the day and the lord of the hour, or the planets having fall in the signs the said planets are in, are in a hard aspect; here the effect is not so pronounced than in paragraph 2 above but should be taken into account in the context of the whole picture;

4) the lord of the day and the lord of hour are in each other’s fall (example Venus is the lady of day and the Moon is the lady of the hour; Venus is in Scorpio but the Moon is in Virgo) or in detriment (the effect is not so strong than if they were in fall);

5) the combination Saturn rules the day and Mars the hour or vice versa is a malefic one; under the current planetary alignment it is worse if Mars rules the day, for it is better if the lord of the hour is received by the lord of the day.

If you find the planetary alignments described below and the said planets play other roles in the chart such as the significators (see chapter WHO IS WHO above), the sect luminary (its dispositor), the lords of angles (ASC and MC are stronger than DSC and IC) but in action not so strong as the significators, the dispositor of POF or the lord of a New or Full Moon (immediately after, i.e. the Moon has not moved further than 12 degrees from being new or full), or the lord an eclipse, the effect is particularly strong and may challenge all expectations and odds.

The correlation between the lord of the day and the lord of the hour I will leave for further research.

If the chart is not radical it does not mean that the chart is unreadable or the outcome unpredictable, in other words, you will be wrong; in the same fashion, the radicality of the chart does not guarantee that you will be correct. All charts are fit to be judged. It is true that certain types of planetary alignments (relationship between the lord of the hour and the ascending sign and its lord) favour underdogs, certain ones provided protection for the favourites, and certain ones lead to draws. These are only tendencies which shall be taken into account when judging the charts.

Before we proceed with discussing certain types of radicality, it is to be observed that the lord of the hour must aspect the rising sign and its own domicile. Otherwise the lord of the hour (the worse if it also does not regard the ruler of ASC), which Andrew Bevan calls the operator and guardian of all business performed within its hour, becomes wild (feral) and it may become disobedient to its ordinance. The lord of the hour must not be void of course, i.e. when it is not joined to any planet, it also drives it wild. If the lord of the hour is in fall or detriment (the effect is not so strong than in fall) of the lord of ASC, it also makes it not much useful for performing the business; or if vice versa, the lord of the ASC is in fall or detriment of the lord of hour, it also spoils the business. Be aware if the lord of the hour has fall or detriment in the ascending sign. We shall discuss the above - mentioned issues in subsequent chapters where we will speak about planetary alignments leading to specific outcomes.

Traditionally, the chart is radical and fit to be judged when

1) the lord of the hour has dignities either by rulership, triplicity or by exaltation (first suggested by Andrew Bevan);
2) the lord of the hour and the lord of the ASC are of one triplicity (like Saturn in Libra and Jupiter in Gemini);
3) the lord of the hour are of the same elemental nature as the ascending sign (Saturn rules the hour and Virgo rises, both are cold and dry);
4) the ascendant is ruled by a planet with the same elemental nature as the lord of the hour (like Sun and Mars, Moon and Venus, etc.);
5) the lord of the ascendant and the lord of the hour are of the same beneficial disposition (like Sun and Jupiter, Jupiter and Venus);
6) Andrew Bevan suggests that the chart is fit to be judged (namely radical) if the lord of the hour closely aspects the ascendant or its ruler or the Moon (but it is what I said above that the lord of the hour must regard the ascending sign).

Before I will list the types of radicality, I must observe that Mercury (in particular), Moon and Venus are susceptible planets they take over the quality of the sign they are in or the a planet with which they are joined to (orb up to 5 degrees), in particular from a stake. Thus the chart could be listed below as radical, but in fact it is not for the reasons stated above.

According to the statements above, for each of the planetary hours certain signs on the ascendant automatically make the chart radical:

Saturn - Taurus, Gemini (unless Mercury in a fiery sign or joined to a fiery planet (Sun and Mars)), Virgo, Libra, Capricorn and Aqarius.

Jupiter – Aries (triplicity by night), Taurus (Venus and Jupiter are both benefics), Gemini (detriment, usually things go wrong way if Jupiter is not received by Mercury), Cancer (exaltation), Leo (triplicity by night), Libra, Sagitarrius, Aquarius and Pisces.

Mars – Aries, Gemini (if Mercury in a fiery sign or joined to a fiery planet), Cancer (fall, usually things go wrong unless reception intervenes), Scorpio, Sagitarius, Capricorn and Pisces.

Sun - Aries, Gemini (if Mercury in a fiery sign or joined to a fiery planet), Leo, Scorpio and Sagitarrius.

Venus – Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio (detriment, usually things go wrong if Venus is not received by Mars), Sagitarrius (Jupiter and Venus are both benefics), Capricorn and Pisces.

Mercury - radical in all cases when the Mercury is in a sign of the same triplicity as the ascending sign or in the same sign with the lord of the ascendant, or in a sign of the same triplicity as the lord of the ASC or joined to a planet which agrees in its elemental qualities with the lord of the ASC; Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Libra (triplicity by night), Capricorn and Aquarius (triplicity by night).

Moon – Taurus, Cancer, Virgo (triplicity by night), Libra, Scorpio (fall, usually things go wrong even if received by Mars), Capricorn (triplicity by night) and Pisces.

7. HOW TO ASSESS THE STRENGHT OF THE PLANETS?

According to what I have laid out with regard to the determination of the significators agreeably to the jerseys’ colours, Saturn may compete not only with the Sun or the Moon, as the ruler of the opposite sign, but also with Jupiter, Mars, Venus or Mercury. The same relates to all other planets.

The places of power and strength are the angles of the chart – ASC, MC, DSC and IC and so called stakes – the 10th and 4th signs with a pivotal point called “nonagesimal” which is defined as the highest point of the part of the ecliptic which is at any given moment above the horizon; it is the ninetieth degree of the ecliptic, reckoned from the points in which it is intersected by the horizon. If you find a planet in these points, it is considered to be strong.

In Lilly’s table of accidental dignities a planet in an angle is given 5 points and a planet in the 11th house is given 4 points. In fact, the difference in strength is not just a point or some 20%; the angular planet is significantly stronger than a one in a succedent house. Use whole – sign houses for the determination of planet’s place, but consider quadrant house – based angles (MC- IC) for those are places of power.

In principle, all the angles are of equal force but Arab authors assert that the Western angle and the Earth angle are weaker by one forth than the ASC and MC. In determining the strength of the planets, it must be taken into account and monitored. At the present I have not drawn definite conclusions in this regard, but it seems to matter a little bit.

Effect of being placed near MC or IC, in particular with regard to MC, is stronger if the culminating or lower-culmination sign is also a stake sign (the 10th or the 4th counting from the rising sign). The closer the culminating degree is to the nonagesimal, the stronger the effect of the planet; judge the same with respect to the IC degree (but it needs more monitoring).

If culminating sign is the 11th sign, its power is weaker if the culminating sign were the 10th sign from the ascending sign. If the culminating sign is the 9th sign, so cadent from the rising sign, it is weaker than if the culminating sign were the 11th sign from the rising sign. If the culminating sign does not regard the ascending sign, which used to happen in Nordic regions, the effect of being near MC is much weaker.

Though it needs more testing, a planet up to 3 degrees from the nonagesimal seems to be stronger than one having the same distance from an angle.

There is no much difference whether a planet is in a succedent house or a cadent house (I use Placidus houses), but seems to be a difference whether a planet is in a succedent sign (except for the eight sing which does not behold the ascending one) or a cadent sign, in particular one which does not behold the ascending one, i.e. the 6th and the 12th.

The planet can be in an angle or a stake (nonagesimal) by its bodily placement or antisca. Never forget to check planetary antiscas! The bodily placement, of course, is more effective than its antisca placement. For those who work in the Sidereal, there is no need to consider planetary antiscas.

A planet whose antisca lands near an angle or nonagesimal is stronger than one who, by bodily placement, is in a succedent house (sign).

To sum up, the angles and the place near the nonagesimal are the places of power and strength.

For testing purposes, I recommend monitoring the following regions of power: (i) 15 degrees if a planet is inside the 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th and in the same sign as the relevant angle, (ii) 7-8 degrees if a planet is before the angle (in the 3rd, 6th, 9th or 12th) and in the same sign as the relevant angle (iii) 5 degrees if a planet is after the angle (inside the 1st, 4th, 7th , or 10th) but not in the same sign as the relevant example (for instance, ASC is in the 28th of Libra but Saturn is in the 2nd of Scorpio) and (iv) 3 degrees if a planet is before the angle (in the 3rd, 6th, 9th or 12th) and not in the same sign as the relevant angle (for instance, ASC is in the 1st of Scorpio but Saturn is in the 29th of Libra).

You can widen or narrow the orbs in the light of the factors discussed above, for instance you can use a little bit wider orb for a planet near ASC or MC, and a narrower one for a planet near DSC or IC. I feel confident that we find optimal orbs.

In next chapter we will discuss the fortifications of planets.

For those who are ready to test the strength of planets, I can send a table of Premier League teams where you can find 1) the coordinates of the stadiums, 2) the home, away and third kits with the planets ascribed agreeably to the colours, 3) nicknames and their association with planets and 4) signs and planets ruling over some cities the relevant teams represent.

Currently also are available such tables for the Bundesliga and the French League. I will prepare tables for other leagues as well.

Those who wish to receive them, please email dzivibaskoks@inbox.lv, and I will provide.

Before I start discussing the fortifications and afflictions of the planets, I must say that the planetary placement is the most significant single testimony which in almost a half of occasions is a decider.

Judging the strength of the planets, always consider whether the planet is advancing to, or retreating from, an angle. This you should judge by primary motion.

Usually, advancing = strength, good; retreating = weakness, bad. However, it is not always straightforward, for sect possession shall be also considered which we will discuss in further sections.

8. FORTIFICATIONS AND AFFLICTIONS OF THE PLANETS

The places from where the effect, for better or worse, on a planet is stronger are:

1) the angles of the chart;
2) the place near the nonagesimal;
3) the stake signs of the sign the relevant planet is in (for instance, if a planet is in Leo, the stakes are Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus);
4) the stake signs of the domicile and exaltation of the relevant planet.


Remember the rules:
1) a regard from a stake (1st, 4th, 7th and 10th signs) is stronger than one from a trine or a sextile; from the stakes, conjunction (both planets in the same sign) is stronger than opposition (7th sign), opposition (7th sign) is stronger than square (4th or 10th sign); a regard from the 10th sign (overcoming position) is stronger that one from the 4th sign (example: a planet is in Scorpio, a regard from a Leo (10th sign from Scorpio) is stronger than a one from Aquarius (4th sign from Scorpio).
2) the closer to partile regard, the stronger its effect (for instance if you have a whole sign regard from a square and an almost partile regard from a trine, the trine regard shall prevail);
3) the closer to the angles or the nonagesimal regard, the stronger will be its effect.


I cannot give you a definite hierarchy of testimonies, but follow these basic rules with reason and you would achieve good results.

Planets that must be taken into account when assessing the fortifications and afflictions of the relevant planet are:

1) the domicile and exaltation lords of the sign the relevant planet is in;
2) the lord of the hour (to the lesser extent the lord of the day);
3) the luminaries, in particular the sect luminary;
4) POF and its dispositor;
5) the lord of a New or Full Moon (near a New or a Full Moon);
6) the lord of the eclipse (near the eclipse);
7) the lords of the stakes (domicile and exaltation) of the sign the relevant planet is in (for instance, if a planet is in Leo, apart from the Sun, the position of the domicile and exaltation lords Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus should be taken into account);
Cool planets having detriment or fall in the sign the relevant planet is in (for instance, if a planet is in Scorpio, the position of Venus and Moon should be taken into account);
9) the planets ruling the stakes of domicile and exaltation of the relevant planet should be taken into account (for instance, exaltation of the Sun is Aries, so also Mars and Saturn should be taken into account)).

The points 7, 8 and 9 are weaker in effect than others but are worth being monitored.

Remember the rule, the more the roles the relevant planet has in the chart, the stronger its effect, for better or worse.

REGARDS

In assessing the strength of the regard, take always into consideration the accidental and essential condition (strength) of the one who is regarding as was instructed above (Fortifications and afflictions of planets). For the purpose of instruction, the planet who is the significator shall be considered as the one receiving regard all other as the ones performing regard.

Regard by the domicile and exaltation lords of the sign the planet (significator) is in

A planet is fortified if it receives regard (conjunction, whole sign sextile, trine, square and opposition) from its domicile and exaltation lords. If the domicile and exaltation lords do not regard the relevant sign, the planet should be considered as weakened (afflicted). The lack of regard from the domicile lord seems to be a little bit harsher affliction.

A planet is fortified if it is applying to its domicile lord and/or exaltation lord or, vice versa, the said lords are applying to the planet (if they are lighter planets than the significator). If there is a separation, it must be considered as a serious affliction and the judgment may be made on that testimony alone if there are not convincing positive counterbalancing testimonies. The negative effect seems to be mitigated if the one who is separating or the one from whom the separation occurs is immediately (within orb of 5 degrees) joined to a planet which either receives the separating one or the one from whom the separation occurs, or the receiver of disposition is received by the significator. If the one who receives the disposition of the one who is separating is the significator of the other team, it fortifies the relevant significator of the other team.

Example: Venus who is the domicile lord of Mars (significator) in Libra separates from the latter and applies to Saturn (in Libra) who receives Mars (significator) by exaltation. Jupiter is the significator but Mercury who is the domicile lord of Jupiter is separating from Jupiter and applying to a planet in Sagittarius. In such case Jupiter (significator) receives the planet to which Mercury has committed its disposition.

Regard from the domicile and exaltations lords should be considered as a serious affliction if the regard is from the fall of the significator likewise if the domicile or exaltations lords are in their own fall. The detriment sign of the significator from which the domicile and/or exaltation lords commit their regard seems to be weaker affliction as if it were the fall.

If the domicile lord and/or exaltation lord were malefics, it is better to have a friendly regard (sextile or trine) from them. Partile square and, in particular opposition, is a serious affliction for the significator and the judgement may be passed on that testimony alone. In the event of benefics, it is good to have their regard from a stake, however, a partile opposition should be considered as an affliction even if the exaltation and/or domicile lord were benefics.

Remember the rule, the more the roles the domicile and exaltation lords have in the chart (sect luminary, lord of hour, dispositor of POF, etc.), the stronger its effect, for better or worse.

Regard by benefics and malefics

Regard by benefics in general is good, by malefics bad. A regard from a stake of the relevant planet is more powerful than from a trine or a sextile. The more partile is the regard, the better or the worse for the relevant planet.

Exceptions: a regard (even a friendly one) by a benefic from fall or detriment of a planet does not do well for that planet; it could even harm, in particular if that benefic is in superior position, rules the hour, disposes POF or the sect luminary by house or exaltation, etc. A friendly regard by a malefic is good if that malefic rules the hour, the 10th, disposes POF or the sect luminary by house or exaltation, in particular if that malefic is Mars. If a malefic regards a planet the way as said above about benefics the bad impact is increased. The strength of the impact of regard depends on accidental and essential dignities of the one regarding so (angular, cadent, combust, etc.).

Example: Our significator is the Sun in Leo (orange jersey), and we’d like to determine the strength of the regard by benefics and malefics. Suppose, ASC is 23rd degree Capricorn, MC 26th degree Scorpio, the Sun 20th degree Leo, malefics: Mars 23rd degree Libra, Saturn 25th degree Libra, benefics: Jupiter 12th degree Gemini, Venus in Cancer and Moon in Gemini.

Jupiter and Moon as benefics regard the Sun from whole- sign sextile aspect (which is weak) and from the sign (Gemini) which does not behold the rising sign (Capricorn). Venus in Cancer does not regard the Sun at all. The malefics ruling the ASC and the MC are close to the nonagesimal (one of the strongest places of the chart) and in the sign which is the fall of the Sun (Libra) – a strong negative testimony. In addition, the orb of the malefics’ regard is closer that the benefics’ one.

It is obvious that the regard by malefics is much stronger (from the nonagesimal) than the one by benefics (from a cadent place counting from the rising sign), so we can judged that the Sun (significator) is seriously afflicted.

Regard by luminaries, POF its dispositor and lord of hour

Regard by luminaries (in particular the sect luminary) fortifies a planet, its lack weakens. However, a regard (even a friendly one) from the fall or detriment of the relevant planet is worse than the lack of regard (the worse, if the sect luminary also rules the hour, the ASC or the MC, the place of the nonagesimal, or disposes POF).

If a planet is in the fall or detriment (the effect is weaker than in fall) of the sect luminary, it must be considered an affliction (in particular with respect to the favourites). If the sect luminary, in addition, rules the hour, the ASC, the MC or the place of the nonagesimal or dispose POF, etc., the affliction is stronger.

If the Sun is the sect luminary, his regard by opposition (strong impact) or square (middle) is always bad unless reception intervenes (the Sun receives the significator or vice versa).

Partile opposition is always harmful, irrespective of who is the sect luminary (Moon or Sun). The impact of the Sun is stronger than the one of the Moon.

If the significator happens to be the sect luminary, judge its condition from the rules I described in chapter 7 (How to assess the strength of planets).

The strength of the impact of regard depends on accidental and essential dignities of the sect luminary regarding so (angular, cadent, etc.).


Regard by POF and its dispositor is good, lack of regard bad. Judge similarly as described above (with respect to the luminaries) if negative reception intervenes. Sum up testimonies if the dispositor of POF is playing some other role in the chart (for instance, it is the sect luminary, the lord of hour, etc.). The strength of the impact of regard depends on accidental and essential dignities of the one regarding so (angular, cadent, combust, etc.).

If the significator disposes POF, consider it as a strong fortification; but if it, as the dispositor of POF, does not regard POF (partile inconjunction almost equals opposition) or is a partile square or opposition to POF, consider it as a strong affliction (partile opposition being the worst of all). Likewise, if the significator, as the dispositor of POF, is in its own fall, consider it as a strong affliction even if otherwise it is strongly placed (well regarded by benefics, angular, etc.).

Regard by the lord of hour is good, lack of regard bad. Judge similarly as described above. If the significator disposes lord of hour or is itself the lord of hour, consider it as a strong fortification, even a stronger one if the significator disposes POF. But if the significator, as the dispositor of the lord of hour or as the lord of hour itself, does not regard its own sign (partile inconjunction almost equals opposition), or is partile square or opposition (opposition is stronger in effect) to it (i.e. the lord of hour if the significator disposes the lord of hour), or is in its own fall, consider it as a strong affliction even if otherwise it is strongly placed (well regarded by benefics, angular, etc.).

Regards by other planetary agents

Always consider the lord of eclipse (allow for a weak or so for timing after an eclipse; then after its effect diminishes) which is the dispositor of the luminary being eclipsed. Generally, it is better not to have a regard by the lord of eclipse at all, unless the lord of eclipse disposes the significator. Traditionally, the lord of eclipse shows the difficulties and ordeals agreeably to its nature and place in the figure (sign, house, etc.) If there is a regard, consider the type of regard (a friendly or a hard aspect), the place from which the regard comes (angles, nonagesimal, stakes of the significator, succedent, cadent, etc.) and the condition of the lord of eclipse (as instructed in chapter 7 and Cool.

A friendly regard from the lord of eclipse does not harm, nor fortifies it the significator. A hard aspect (square or opposition) is one of the strongest afflictions, in particular if partile, unless the significator is received (by house or exaltation) by the lord of eclipse, then the harm is mitigated; and the judgement can be passed on that testimony alone. If the significator is in a superior position in relation to the lord of eclipse, i.e. the significator is in the 10th sign from the lord of eclipse, such as the lord of eclipse in Leo and the significator in Taurus, then the harm is mitigated for the significator has power over the lord of eclipse; if it happens vice versa, the worse for the significator. Beware lest there be harmful reception such as the lord of the significator in the fall of the lord of eclipse or vice versa; a negative reception by house is weaker than the one involving the falls of the lord of eclipse and the significator.

A transit of the significator through the degree of the eclipse and its stakes (which are exactly 90 and 180 degrees away) must be considered as a serious affliction, for these degrees are unfortunate not only in context of mundane events but in respect of all other issues as well (natal, horary, election, etc.), soccer being not an exception.

If the significator is the lord of eclipse itself, more the worse if it is afflicted. If the lord of the eclipse or the significator has some other roles in the chart (lord of hour, dispositor of POF, etc.), the effect is stronger.

You should judge a regard by the lord of a New or Full Moon (near a New or a Full Moon) following the same rules which were laid out in respect of the lord of eclipse. But its effect seems not to be so fatal as the one of the lord of eclipse.

Regards by the lords of the stakes (domicile and exaltation) of the sign the relevant planet is in (for instance, if a planet is in Leo, apart from the Sun, the position of the domicile and exaltation lords of Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus are relevant) and by the planets ruling the stakes of domicile and exaltation of the relevant planet should be judged in the light of their natures and roles in the chart – benefics or malefics, the lords of day, hour, POF, etc. Beware of negative reception and partile hard aspects.

Regards by the planets having fall or detriment in the sign the relevant planet is in (for instance, if a planet is in Scorpio, the position of Venus and Moon should be taken into account) are harmful if there is a hard aspect (conjunction, square or opposition, in particular if partile), more the worse if it is overcoming the significator from the 10th sign. The significator joined to a planet in its own fall should be considered as an affliction per se. As always consider negative receptions (for instance, the lord of the fall the planet is in, is the fall lord is itself in its own fall (unless there is no regard from it to the significator). The significator joined to a planet in its own fall should be considered as an affliction per se. Judge the strength of affliction applying the rules which I laid out in chapter 7 and 8.

Always remember the rule, the more the roles the relevant planet has in the chart, the stronger its effect, for better or worse. It does not mean that you should count up the roles; qualitative testimonies always prevail over quantifying testimonies.

9. PARTICULAR ROLES OF THE PLANETARY AGENTS

Part of fortune and its dispositor

The condition of POF and its dispositor in general show the strength and weakness of the favourite.

The place of POF (sign, terms, angular, succedent or cadent house) in the figure is not so important but the regard of its dispositor and other planetary agents (benefics and malefics) is. To assess the strength of regard, follow the instructions laid out in chapters 7 and 8.

POF on the ASC or the MC does not fortify the favourite, nor does it fortify the underdog if placed on the DSC or the IC. An angular POF, as all know, happens at the quarters of the Moon when she is conjunct, oppose or square the Sun (new, full and waxing and waning quarters). Contrary to Frawley’s opinion that POF antisca’s placement on the ASC or the MC favours the favourite and its placement on the DSC or the IC favours the underdog, experience shows that it has little effect, if at all, on the outcome of a game.

If the dispositor of POF is a malefic, its regard from a conjunction or a hard aspect (in particular if partile) favours the underdog, unless in the event of conjunction the relevant malefic is the significator of the favourite. If the dispositor of POF aspects it from a partile opposition, it favours the underdog irrespective of whether the dispositor of POF is a benefic or a malefic. Apart from the above, consider such things as besiegement of POF and its dispositor between the bodies or rays of malefics and benefics and judge accordingly. I have done the same also with the antisca degrees of POF and its dispositor but have found no considerable effect.

If the dispositor of POF is weak, such as cadent in the figure and/or without regard to its own sign, it favours the underdog. If stronger in the figure but seriously afflicted, it also favours the underdog. The dispositor of POF in its fall favours the underdog.

Unlike Frawley, I would not say that the Moon’s aspects to POF and its dispositor are the strongest sole testimonies. I would agree with his general considerations that the Moon’s conjunction, trine and sextile (a weak testimony) to POF or its antisca favours the favourite and its opposition and square to POF or its antisca gives strength to the underdog, but the testimonies (such as the placement of the significator and others) which I described in chapters 7 and 8 are more weighty. Likewise, the Moon’s conjunction, trine or sextile to the dispositor of POF (aspect to the dispositor’s antisca is a weak testimony) in general favours the favourite, its opposition and square – the underdog.

Always consider the condition of the Moon and her reception with the dispositor of POF. If the Moon is in her fall (Scorpio), her trine to POF does not help the favourite, but her conjunction harms. If the Moon is in the fall of the dispositor of POF, her trine to POF or the dispositor of POF does not help, in the latter case it even harms the favourite. In this context also consider the condition of the dispositor of the Moon lest it not be its own fall or the fall of the Moon. Then also the Moon’s ability to bring good with her friendly aspects to POF or its dispositor is limited. In such cases the harmful effect of her hard aspects to POF and its dispositor is stronger.

If the significator of the team disposes POF or the Moon, the significator is the one who will be affected for better or worse, irrespective of whether it represents the favourite or the underdog. For instance, if the underdog wears a white kit, it would the one, not the favourite, who will suffer from the Moon’s opposition to POF.

Moon’s aspects to significators

Moon’s aspects to significators are one of the strongest testimonies. Frawley suggests that the kind of aspect does not matter, but it practice it does. In the rank of hierarchy conjunction is the strongest one, and then comes opposition, square and trine with sextile being the weakest one. In majority of cases, the Moon’s applying aspects to the significator should be regarded as a fortification of the significator, except the opposition (unless the significator represents a rank underdog) is always harmful unless reception intervenes. The Moon’s conjunction with the significator usually is the final and conclusive testimony.

Conversely, the Moon’s separation from the significator should be regarded as one of worst afflictions unless the Moon immediately applies to the dispositor of the planet or its exaltation lord or to a planet which is received by the significator (i.e. is placed in strong essential dignities of the significator). However, if the Moon is in fall of the significator or vice versa, her application to the significator is worse than separation.

Judge the same, although the effect is not so strong, if the Moon applies to, or separates from, the dispositor of the significator.

However, a correct judgment always depends on the complex assessment of the condition of the Moon and the significator (follow the rules I have described in chapters 7 and Cool. Always take into consideration from which planet the Moon separates and to which applies, whether there is some translation of collection of light. Consider receptions between the significator, the Moon and the planet to which the Moon is applying.

To sum up, the Moon (strong in the figure and not afflicted) applying to the significator by body or aspect (and it not afflicted) is a reliable testimony for victory (unless there is a huge difference in odds, for this testimony might not be enough for the underdog to win), in case of opposition all depends on the condition of the Moon and the significator, if both are strong and not afflicted and there is no negative reception, opposition shall do its job like a trine to secure a victory.

If the significator is in the fall of the Moon or vice versa, friendly aspects help little but the hard ones (conjunction, square and opposition) tend to harm, unless one of the planets receives the other.

If the Moon applies to a planet placed in the fall of the significator, the latter is harmed, in particular if the application is a conjunction or opposition.

If the Moon separates from one significator and applies to the other, it is a reliable testimony that the other significator will win unless a negative reception intervenes (the other significator is in the fall of the Moon or vice versa). In case if the separation or application is to the dispositor of the significator, the effect is weaker but always worth being taken into account. If the Moon separates from the significator and immediately applies to a heavier planet than the significator to which the significator is joined before other planets, always consider receptions involved. The receiver of the Moon’s and the significator’s disposition must not be in the fall of the significator; if it is, the significator is harmed.

If the Moon applies to a planet placed in strong essential dignities of the significator, it fortifies the significator.

The role of Transsaturnian planets

Transsaturnian planets – Uranus, Neptune and Pluto act like malefics, Mars and Saturn and add fatality to the chart be it a football chart, other event chart or horary. In general, their hard aspects (conjunction, square and opposition), like as hard aspects of Mars and Saturn, to significator (to a lesser extent the significators dispositor) or its antisca (effect is not so strong if by body or ray to the significator) harms them, and aspects to POF, its antisca or its dispositor and the luminaries, in particular the sect luminary, harms the favourite. As they do not rule signs, they cannot act as a significator and be a dispositor. To evaluate the effect of a Transsaturnian always take into consideration the condition of its dispositor and judge according to the rules I laid out in previous chapters 7 and 8. If the dispositor of the relevant Transsaturnian is also in an evil configuration with the significator or in a bad reception, the malevolent effect will be enhanced (always take into consideration the other roles the dispositor of the Transsaturnian has in the chart). If the dispositor does not regard the Transsaturnian, it becomes wild (feral).

As a rule, the effects from Transsaturnians are strong in angles (the place of nonagesimal) but weak in cadent houses (signs).

In general, a Transsaturnian in any angle or nonagesimal (except Neptune the effect of which is unclear) favours the underdog. However, if a Transsaturnian is well – fortified in an angle (apply the rules laid out in chapters 7 and Cool and the significator disposes the Transsaturnian, it fortifies the significator. Then its conjunction is a strong fortification, but its partile square and opposition harms less. A partile trine is not as strong as conjunction but moderately fortifies the significator.

The effect of Uranus sometimes produces extraordinary scoreline, whilst Pluto usually denies scoring (and acts like Saturn) if on the MC or the DSC and the significator has dignity in the rising sign (rulership or exaltation). The effect of Neptune is not clear yet (but seems to have no effect at all) in any of angles.

The luminaries (in particular the sect luminary), POF (consider also the dispositor of POF) or the lord of hour partile inconjunction a Transsaturnian favours the underdog. If it is a significator which is partile inconjunction a Transsaturnian, then the significator suffers.

A partile conjunction, square or opposition of Transsaturnian (in particular Pluto) to the Sun favours the underdog but only then if in an angle, and the Sun must rule the hour or dispose POF. The underdog must be a prominent underdog (odds 10: 1 or longer).

Planets’ ingresses

In general, a planet in the last degree of a sign is considered to be, to a greater or lesser extent, afflicted.

Always take into consideration if the significator is about to leave or enter a sign where it is essentially fortified (exaltation or house) or debilitated (fall or detriment). If the significator leaves the sign under its rulership or exaltation, then its placement in the last degree of that sign is bad (in particular if it leaves the sign of its exaltation). On the contrary, in the last degree of the sign in which the significator suffers affliction (fall or detriment) it is less afflicted than in the rest of the degrees. In the first degree of the sign in which the significator is afflicted, in particular if it is the fall, the significator is less afflicted than in the rest of degrees, with the exception of the exact fall degree of the relevant planet which in effect equals to the first degree of the relevant sign. Vary the rule, for inferiors, after the ingress in such signs, allow the whole degree (for the Moon even two degrees), for superiors some 15 minutes (for Saturn even less). After that the relevant significator shall be considered to have accustomed to its new position and the strength of effect is not so manifest (and I should judge about its condition according to the mainstream rules I described in chapters 7 and Cool.

If the planet enters into its exaltation (house is not so strong in effect), then it gets a boost. After that it gets accustomed to its position of strength and its zest begins to disappear.

The transit of significator (or its dispositor) through the cursed degrees always has negative influence on the significator. Such degrees are the third degree (2.00 – 2.59) and the nineteenth (18.00 – 18.59) of Scorpio and the nineteenth (18.00 – 18.59) of Libra, which are the fall degrees of the luminaries and in the inconjunction to the Sun’s exaltation degree in Aries. The significator’s antisca falling in a cursed degree also harms the significator (though effect is not as strong as in transit).

POF or its antisca in cursed degrees harms the favourite, likewise if a cursed degree is rising or partile on MC or nonagesimal.
