"Will the Packers beat the Vikings?"

I have just enough time before guests arrive to post this sports horary chart and a brief analysis.  In about two hours, the Green Bay Packers will face off against the Minnesota Vikings in a first round NFL play-off game.  The Pack is my team, and I am the querent.  “Will the Packers beat the Vikings tonight?”

Jan 5, 2013, 12:03 p.m. CST Wauwatosa, WI, USA; 2 Taurus Asc (see chart below).


The Packers get the first house and its lord, Venus.  The Vikings get the seventh house and its lord, Mars.


The first house contains the South Node, in the sign of the cusp.  This means the North Node is in the seventh, but we don’t count this as a separate testimony.  The seventh house contains peregrine Saturn, in the sign on the cusp, and much closer to the cusp.  That's more of an affliction to the Vikings than the South Node is to the Packers.


The Packers are Venus, placed in the ninth house.  The Vikings are Mars, placed in the eleventh house.  Both of these are considered neutral houses, so there's no advantage for either team here. 


Mars is applying to aspect both Saturn (relatively malefic here due to being peregrine) and Jupiter (definitely malefic here being in detriment).  I believe these aspects harm Mars.  Venus has no planets applying to aspect it other than the Moon (see next paragraph).  Venus has the advantage in this respect.


The Moon signifies the flow of action in a sports contest horary.  The Moon applies to sextile Venus in a little over two degrees.  Although this is a minor testimony, it should tip the balance in favor of the Pack.


Based on the aspects to Mars harming the Vikings and the Moon applying to aspect Venus, I'm calling the game for the Packers.  Let's hope I'm right!


I'll be back late tonight with the results.




I'm happy to say that the Packers won!  The Vikings scored first but were unable to get anything else going for the rest of the game.  I believe the key testimonies for this prediction were the afflictions to Mars, the planet signifying the Vikings.


I'll have my sports prediction hat on again for next weekend's first-round playoff game against San Francisco.  This will be a much tougher contest for the Pack.  We'll see if I can improve my prediction record to 2-1 for 2013 :)
