Lifestyle column: the Zodiac and the FIFA World Cup

The Zodiac and the FIFA World Cup: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

The kick-off? But what are they waiting for? For weeks, you have been having pins and needles in your legs at the prospect of the World Cup! A sportsperson at heart, you rejoice over this event, even though you find that football is too collective an activity. However, you love to be overwhelmed by a surge of adrenaline at key moments: free kicks, or even better, penalties, or shoot-outs, make you feel as highly charged as nitroglycerine. And if the score is hanging by a thread, you think that the chronometer is slow, and you may also be a bad loser. The referee, as well as the opponent of your favourite team, run the risk of hearing a few insults at a distance! Indeed, you necessarily have a favourite team, and you stand up for it passionately. Consider the option of experiencing the event in an outdoor stadium, otherwise you could turn totally mad in front of your TV screen. And in case of victory, there you are, off for a samba, which is far better than the Carnival!

In honour of Brazil, you intend to taste a few caipirinhas and several specialities such as the famous feijoada. Why not go further and imagine nice dishes based on the teams? For instance, paella for Spain, Gouda sandwiches for The Netherlands, Milanese escalopes for Squadra Azurra. Stop! You are not only a stomach.

A genuine gambler, if you win, it will be all the more exciting. If you are a female, you can consider two additional options.

If a priori, football may be a quite violent, forceful, and manly sport, surprisingly enough, you appreciate it for its traditions and its popular culture. Deep down, you know that it can cement a nation better than any other event. Therefore, whether you are or not a firm patriot, you like to watch the twelve players arriving on the lawn like in an arena to defend their colours. You are also fond of the national anthems ceremonial, and you examine their behaviour, while you remember past wonderful games. In a word, even if you do not play football yourself, you inevitably recall heart-stirring images of emotionally-charged moments often spent with the family. And since you are thoughtful, you will see to it that this World Cup unfolds in similar conditions, an assurance of affection shared with your loved ones.

the FIFA World Cup for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Are football players the new gods of our time? One may think so, as one watches them, 20 year-old millionaires, with their muscular body, and sometimes handsome like Cristiano Ronaldo, flaunting expensive watches or a Ferrari, and associating with knockouts only. As far as you are concerned, the answer is quickly found: these are good reasons to admire them, or even to identify yourself with them... In any case, your favourite team is the best one, and one wonders why they have to go through qualifying matches at all. Putting irony aside, you fully rely on the coach or the captain to lead the men to victory. There is something similar to the Grail quest in this competition, and you celebrate each step towards success. The day of the final is the moment you prefer because, actually, the winner is yourself, all in all.

the FIFA World Cup for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

While people get restless and chatter away, you know, like the best strategist ever, that meticulous and intelligent preparation is the only method which optimizes the chances of victory. Haphazard is what you are most wary of. Therefore, you have followed the qualification process with acute attention, then the selection of the group of 24 of each participating nation. You know the physical level of the gamblers, your favourite team's as well as their main opponents'. With critical thinking, you evaluate the degree of the media manipulations, or the conditions – weather, date and time of the matches. In brief, like Colbert in his day, you would make a perfect adviser to the national selector! Moreover, you also enjoy displaying a low-profile. You are aware of the assets of the best players, but you do not rule out the possibility that outsiders can make the difference. You do not approve the hype around the celebrities, the money spent lavishly, and the show-off. This is the reason why you are glad that there is a referee among these divas!

the FIFA World Cup for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Football? Hum... It must be acknowledged that this sport has grown very glamorous these last years. In the past, you were not too interested in packed stadiums, their risks of misdemeanour, or pubs full of uncouth beer drinkers. But since then, you realised that football and its stars have become fashionable and make the headlines. When they behave correctly, you cannot help noting their look or their lifestyle. Regardless of criticisms, the Beckhams remain a reference... Therefore, you kindly follow the trend. Because what also attracts you is the fact that football is a team sport. As the coaches say, it is about collective game and being at the service of the group without thinking only of oneself. Ah, those nice players, all united towards a common goal, suffering and exulting together! And there you are, with tears in your eyes. Among the 2014 slogans, some reflect the way you see things, for instance, England's slogan: "The dream of one team, the heartbeat of millions".

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

the FIFA World Cup for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

In the area of football, you follow your powerful instincts. Since you often feel inner tensions, this is an excellent opportunity to give your impulses free rein and to let off steam. Whether you practice football or not, you fully appreciate matches. Your excitement may be less clamorous than other people's, but it is as intense. However, be careful not to be carried away by your ardour, and remain fair-play, even though you witness the most blatant injustices. Another thing that you also appreciate: prognoses. After having been amazed by Paul le Poulpe, this year, you will closely listen to the pandas' verdicts. Indeed, the Chinese have decided to rely on their soothsayer skills to guess who will win the 2014 World Cup. The names are not yet known, but it is obvious that it would be dangerous to question the pandas' opinion.

the FIFA World Cup for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Whereas some people identify the best places in town where to watch their matches, with you, it is about a change of scale. You booked your flight to Rio a long time ago! When Brazil was designated the host country, you first exulted. Then you opened an atlas, or your MacBook, to learn more. Well, this World Cup is taking place in winter, in the tropics. Several names make you dream already: Salvador de Bahia, Rio and its bay... and Manaus! Your adventurer soul woke up immediately, and you have the impression that you feel the moist breath of the jungle. It is obvious that, since you are usually active and sporty, you eagerly participate in the big football celebration. But if the pleasures of exoticism are added, it is even better. If you are not on the spot, you should entirely opt for fascinating Brazil's ways, its colours, its dances and its spicy dishes.

the FIFA World Cup for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

If you disapprove the huge fuss around the organisation of the World Cup, you are now resigned. As of mid-June, there may be some sort of wavering at the office. Well, yes, the professional world also will have to yield to the power of the round ball! Willy-nilly, you will get down to it too. But one must not expect you to be a sucker, a victim of all the buzzes which are likely to crop up. To your view, competition must unfold in fairness and in compliance with the rules. You have an additional asset, and you think that to anticipate the future, it is necessary to study the past. You know that, statistically, the winner is always the first of his group, and that strong defence outclasses the fiercest attack. And lastly, you believe that the selector's choices ought to be respected. He is the person who symbolises authority and who must lead the team to the top. Would it be only for that, you take your favourite hat off to him.

the FIFA World Cup for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

If you are interested in the World Cup, you cannot overlook its social dimension! When Brazil was designated as the host-country, you were among the first people who saw a real opportunity to recover for this country of 200 million inhabitants. It was the occasion to remedy blatant inequalities, to improve the infrastructures, as well as the security and the education level of the whole people. However, as the World Cup draws closer, your concern grows deeper. Every single day, the media report the Brazilian people's protests or discontents. You will follow the matches, because you are curious, and you will try to put aside your frustrations. Indeed, you have an option. You are fond of outsiders, of course! Ivory Coast or Bosnia and Herzegovina for instance... Lastly, you enjoy amazing your friends by declaring that you know already the best striker. Who is... Brazuca, in other words, the name of the ball, version 2014!

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

the FIFA World Cup for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

What you appreciate in football is the universal dimension of this sport and of the event. Furthermore, Brazil is such a huge country, with so many people of mixed origins, that it fascinates you more deeply. Eventually, a language everyone understands! Like mega-concerts, these crowd gatherings have something almost mystical to you. In this regard, you are rather superstitious. You know that the victory of your favourites may depend on the colour of their jersey or its number, or some other eccentricities. But huuush... although some people refuse to confess, everyone has one's beliefs. There used to be Paul le Poulpe or Raymond Domenech, who cast the astrological charts of his players; Trapattoni, who had holy water sent to him. Not to mention certain divas who absolutely had to eat such or such dish! In brief, matches are not so simple, but should you add your personal feelings, there is every chance that this World Cup becomes marvellously complex and gripping!
