It didn’t strike me as being a particularly good chart, and I wrote the following:
Nonetheless there could be a lot of talking. Or should I say complaining? Mercury is making an exact, 90-degree contact to Mars in Virgo, so just about every aspect of the World Cup will be vociferously analysed. For example the infrastructure, the stadiums, the security and of course the refereeing decisions.
So far it’s difficult to judge my prediction, because the month-long competition has only just started. However I think my prediction was hinting at the vuvuzela problem.
I’ll quickly explain this, for the benefit of anyone who hasn’t been following the World Cup. The vuvuzela is a trumpet-like instrument, that makes a loud buzzing noise. It has become a favourite accessory for many people attending football matches, but its impact has been largely negative. The noise from vuvuzelas has drowned everything else out. One can’t hear the fans chanting, and most importantly, the players have found it difficult to communicate with each other.
Which takes us back to the Mercury-Mars aspect. Mercury is the planet of communication, while Mars is the planet of anger and annoyance. People are getting annoyed with their inability to communicate, and it’s all down to the vuvuzelas.
There have been moves to ban them from matches, but that might cause even more aggravation. Besides, the influence of Mercury and Mars can’t be avoided, and if it wasn’t vuvuzelas causing the aggravation it would be something else.
