I promised a recap of my recent sports predictions, given how many I got wrong. So let's review.
Vandy-Wisconsin (3/17/12). By the time of tip-off, odds were even. With even odds, we can't call the game because we can't assign houses. We can safely say now that winner Wisconsin was Lord 1, based on the testimony of Lord 10 sitting on its own cusp.
Syracuse-Wisconsin (3/22/12). Thanks to fensi88 for the comment on Pluto. See page 90 of Sports Astrology: Pluto close to a cusp has a malefic effect. It was two degrees; close enough.
Marquette-Florida (3/22/12). Lord 7 inside the 10th cusp should have favored Marquette, but they lost by a wide mile. I still have no good astrological explanation for this loss. I suggest keeping an eye on the Saturn-antiscion Neptune combo when Sat is one of our four main house lords.
Ohio State-Kansas (3/31/12). Chalk this one up to simple error. Moon makes a square with Saturn--Lord 4, Kansas prize--in two degrees. That’s the only aspect, so game goes to Kansas. This should have been an easy call.
Kentucky-Kansas (4/2/12). My mistake here was to ignore a major testimony in favor of several iffy ones. Antiscion Lord 1 sitting on cusp 10 was the key.
In summary, some lessons learned:
· Always calculate and mark antiscia, all of them, before judging the chart.
· Double and triple check your work, esp. Moon’s aspects.
· Four degrees is more appropriate for basketball than five.
· Read and re-read relevant sections of Sports Astrology.
Thanks for checking in, and I’ll see you back here for some baseball predictions later in the season!
