The NFL is winding up the playoffs this weekend with two games on Sunday, Jan. 23, 2011. From what I can see of the astrological signatures, there is a good chance of at least one upset this weekend. And unfortunately, the president’s choice (Bears) is in danger of failing to advance to the Super Bowl.
The first game Sunday is a Central Division battle between the wild card Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears at 2 pm CT. The ascendant is at 28 Gemini; sometimes very late degrees favor an upset more than not. The ascendant is conjunct the South Node, square the Moon exactly in the fourth house, and square Uranus-Jupiter in the tenth house. Also it trines Neptune exactly in the ninth house near the midheaven. Strong squares usually help a football team to hold the line and score points. But this chart is rather weak, using non-planetary points like the nodes, and a mutable moon. The square to Jupiter and Uranus in the tenth could help the Bears put some points on the board, though. We shall see.
… Oh, Mr. Cutler is not looking very good this Sunday. I gotta go with with the Packers and Mr. Rodgers, who has some powerful aspects to his North Node.
I have mentioned I have been working more intensively on my sports astrology skills. It is not the first time I have made charts for individual games, but it is the first time I tried making charts for ALL the football games on a given weekend. It has been a challenge and a real learning experience (in a good way).
One of the interesting things that I noticed is that when Mars entered Leo about mid-October, it affected the play of the teams with Leo birth dates. In general, they started playing much more competitively. In some cases, a team settled on its starting quarterback and began winning more games than they lost. Some of the Leo teams started to perk up earlier than others, and that generally correlates with how early or late their Sun is actually placed in the sign Leo. Don’t assume that these teams will win everything from here on out. For one thing, the chart of the game will have many other clues about the outcome of the game. For another thing, Mars will go retrograde in mid-december and could take back any gains in the league standings.

I have been trying to cast charts for all the NFL games this season and it has been a real learning experience trying to assimilate all the general rules of sports astrology to football. One can cast a chart for just one game, now and then, and think that you have it figured out. BUT when you look at ALL the games, many of which start at exactly the same time in a given time zone, it gets tricky. You have to know not only which team is the host team in the chart, but also which team is favored. IF the teams were equal, it would be much easier to read the chart. You just look at the indicators for the basic parts of the team’s fortunes (which house represents the home and away team, which houses are the quarterbacks, which houses are the game plans, etc.).
But if the teams vary widely in their overall league rankings, then even a good chart cannot help a team win. It can have a superior quarterback performance and great yardage stats, and still lose. BUT now I have found a couple indicators that help tell me more definitely if the home team will win, or if an upset is in the works. This is quite exciting. At least now there are certain games each week that I know for sure what the result will be. Last time, this was in the chart of the Arizona upset of the Giants in Week 7. Alas, this week two of those games involved heavy favorites, anyway. (the Giants and the Saints) However, one upset is in the works, at Mile High Stadium. Capice?

The world of NFL football was rocked by a Detroit Lions win last Sunday, Sept. 27, 2009. the Lions, who did not win a game all last season, disposed of the Washington Redskins in Detroit. What does sports astrology have to say about that game?
I am proud to say that I fingered the improbable winner of that matchup. Why would I pick the hapless Lions, you ask? Have you been smoking the funny cigarettes, you ask? Why would anyone in their right minds pick the Lions to win any game this year, you ask?
Very simple. Let me lay it out for you as simply and as briefly as possible.
The first Sunday-Monday of NFL action was fairly straightforward. Most games ended the way that the pundits said they would. The one thing that was not expected was the fairly large number of injuries that took players out of the lineup for practically every team. The injury report became a key indicator for how following games might end.
But let’s look at the sports astrology for this first weekend’s games. The most common scenario for the afternoon games was as follows: many of them featured Pluto in the first house with Sag rising. The opposing team was represented by Gemini, whose ruler Mercury was retrograde. Assuming that the home team was also the favorite, that made them just about a lock to win with powerful Pluto in their first house. Pluto just smashes its opponent, as evidenced by the lopsided scores in so many games.
