Can astrology be used to predict sports? Can it be used to predict who the winner of the Euro 2012 will be? The idea of predicting sports events has drawn astrologers and betting enthusiasts since the days of the Roman chariot races.
Sometimes astrology is used not only to predict sporting events but even to influence the decisions of the coaches when training and choosing their squad. The most famous example that springs to mind is French coach Raymond Domenech, who has admitted that a passion for astrology has impacted his squad selection. The coach, who himself is an Aquarius with Virgo rising, cut some Scorpio and Leo players from his team based on their star signs.
Things did not really go Domenech’s way during the 2010 World cup in South Africa, but he isn’t the only public figure to rely on readings of the stars, But does it work? How would you go about doing it?
Obviously all sports differ and the astrological consideration will be different for individual sports and team sports as well the skills and conditions necessary for victory in different team sports; soccer and baseball are markedly different games and therefore the astrological signs to look for should be different.
The most simplified approach usually taken is the modified exercise in horary astrology. Horary astrology is an ancient branch of horoscopic astrology by which an astrologer attempts to answer a question by constructing a horoscope for the exact time at which the question was received. Different aspects of the chart are chosen to represent the two sides, whether home team vs. away team, favorite vs. underdog, or whatever is appropriate to that particular contest. The planetary rulers of the signs on those teams are evaluated and the side with the strongest astrological indications is generally declared the winner.
Another approach astrologers use to predict sports focuses on the birth charts of the competing parties. This will include the date of birth of the players and manager, the time of the game, the position of the moon during the game, etc… Using these variables they will attempt to determine who is best supported or worst affected by the astrological conditions during the match.
We cannot go into detail as to all the different signs and astrological figures used by some astrologers, but we can take a standard astrological approach for soccer/football and in particular, who will win the Euro 2012 Championship which will be held in Poland and the Ukraine from June 11 until July 1st.. One such simplified approach would be to use colors as being astrological significant.
Lists of colors to indicate clothing and objects signified in horary charts are given by most medieval astrologers. Some lists vary and there are some overlaps but generally the choice depends on shade and texture. For example: rich shades of purple are associated with Jupiter and the Sun, pale ones with Venus and the Moon.
Using these lists we can see which team colors will be the “strongest” during the time when the matches are played. The group stages will be played from June 8, 2012 until June 19,2012, with the knockout stages being held on June 21-june 28. The final will be played on July 1st, 2012.
During the group stages from June 8 to June 11 Jupiter will be in Taurus. The strong colors for this time are: green, yellow, white and light blue. Teams wearing these shirt colors are: England, Germany, Greece, Poland, Ireland, Italy, Sweden and Ukraine. On June 11 Jupiter will enter Gemini. The strong colors are: yellow, green and orange. Teams wearing these shirt colors are: Holland, Ireland, Sweden and Ukraine. From June 25 until the final on July 1st Jupiter will be in the sign of Cancer. The strongest colors at this time are green and white.
Using these simplified color charts and the dates the matches are played we can see that Ireland, which play in both green (home jersey) and white (away jersey) will have the strongest astrological benefits in regards to their jersey colors for this championship, but will they win the Euro 2012??? That remains to be seen…
