The start of FIFA World Cup in Russia has one’s again initiated a debate about who is the best player of our generation – Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo ? Both have been prolific scorers for their respective countries and clubs. Both have won the FIFA Ballon d’Or award for equally 5 times each. Both players have regularly scored 50 plus goals in a single season and have scored more than 500 goals in their career for representing their club and country. Astrologically the horoscope of Cristiano Ronaldo suggest that he could be the top goal scorer in the FIFA world cup 2018 while Lionel Messi may once again disappoint his fans a bit. I had already predicted on the horoscope of Lionel Messi about his possible retirement from the International team of Argentina after the disappointing outing in the FIFA world cup 2018.
Among the horoscopes of other football stars available at astro data bank the chart of Belgium Captain Eden Hazard is very promising. The Raja Yoga’s in the horoscope of Eden Hazad suggest that his team can reach into the semifinals or even in the finals of the FIFA world cup surprising everyone with their outstanding performance on the field. The horoscope of German coach Joachim Low is going weak at the moment with bad transit of Saturn from his 8th house in the Taurus lagan chart showing that his side will not be able to defend their title. It was Germany who had shown wonderful skills and tactics in the last world cup in 2014 beating Argentina in the finals. But this time Germany is not likely to win their 5th title and will miss the opportunity to equal the record of Brazil who is also one among the favorite of the tournament. The horoscope of French captain Hugo Lloris and Brazilian captain Neymar are also very good. The Brazil and France stand good chances to reach in the semi-finals. I will discuss these chart in the context of the ongoing games in the FIFA world cup 2018. But first see the astrological combinations to to be observed in the horoscopes of a successful sports person.
(a) The connection between the 3rd ( courage), 6th ( competition) , 10th ( career ) and 11th ( gains ) houses/lords present in the horoscope.
( b ) The Mars-Venus or Mars-Mercury conjunction also make one interested in sports.
( c) The 3rd house from lagn and Karakamsha under the Jaimini aspect of malefic planets Mars, Saturn, Sun and/or Rahu make one courageous and interested in sporting activities. If these planets are in Karakamsha lagna then also the person is brave and found of sports.
(d) Take note of Atamakaraka planet, in which Rashi it is placed ? Malefic planets becoming Atamakaraka and placed in strong sign like Leo or Sagittarius also make one adventurous and sports loving person.
Horoscope of Cristiano Ronaldo
5 February 1985, 05:25 hours at Funchal Portugal.
32N 38′ and 16W 54′
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Mercury 16 years 3 months 23 days
Karakamsha is Cancer
In the Sagittarius lagan horoscope of Cristiano Ronaldo there is very good Raja Yoga of lagna lord Jupiter, 9th lord Sun and the 10th lord Mercury. Saturn , the functional malefic for Sagittarius lagan, aspect the 9th house and its lord Sun in Ronaldo’s horoscope. It was no surprise that his didn’t get the happiness from his father as he was died when Ronaldo was just 20 years of age. The maha dasha of exalted Venus starting from May 2008 give a boost to Ronaldo’s career. The 11th lord Venus is conjoined with the 5th lord Mars in a very good Dhana yoga.
The conjunction of Mars-Venus and placement of 8th lord in its own house is a good yoga for giving charismatic personality. Ronaldo is regarded as the one of the most fittest and fastest player on the field. Initially he use to play as a winger at the right side of the midfield giving precise crosses in the penalty area. His style of play is quite different from the previous generations stars of Portugal like Luis Figo and Deco. He is an expert in taking penalty kicks and controlling the ball with dribbling and flair which no one has in current generation of footballers.
However, in the last world cup in 2014 he performed badly due to an injury at that time he was undergoing a difficult Vimshottari dasha of Venus-Moon in his chart. The Moon is in Kemadruma yoga in the 8th house of injuries and obstacles. Now the Venus-Rahu-Mars period from 25 May 2018 to 28 July 2018 is very promising. Rahu is in the 5th house from the lagan and the 10th from the Moon. In Dashamsha the Venus, Rahu and Mars are in the 11th house of gains. Christiano Ronaldo can win the ‘Golden Boot’ award in the FIFA world cup 2018 in Russia. He may also led his team into the semi-finals but may not win the world cup trophy. The 2/12 dasha of Venus-Rahu and the Kemadruma Moon is a weakness of his chart.
In Chara dasha an excellent period of Cancer-Libra running (February 2018 to February 2019) is showing that he will dominate the FIFA world cup with his goal scoring ability and captaincy of his team. The Amatayakaraka Moon is in Cancer sign and from Libra it is the 10th house of fame. Ronaldo is likely to win the Golden Boot award at world cup and later he will also win the FIFA Men’s best player award for record sixth time.
Horoscope of Neymar
5 February 1992, 02:15 hours at Mogi Das Cruzes , Sao Paulo Brazil
23S 31′ and 46W 11′
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari : Rahu 16 years 11 months 9 days
Karakamsha is Scorpio
An excellent GajaKesari yoga in the horoscope of Neymar astrologically explain his star status in the world of football at such a young age of 25. With 55 goals in 85 international matches for Brazil since his debut at the age of 18 he has all the talent and promise to become the higher goal scorer for his country. It will be no surprise that this maha dasha of 5th lord Jupiter placed in the 10th house in mutual aspect with 9th lord Moon will make him ‘all time great footballer’ of the world. The maha dasha of Jupiter is running in the horoscope of Neymar from September 2009 to September 2025. Jupiter is in the 9th house in Navamsha and in Dashamsha it is placed in the 2nd house in good Raja Yoga. The 3rd house of skills in very strong in the Rashi and Navamsha chart of Neymar. In Rashi chart the yoga of Sun, Mercury and Saturn in the 3rd house is excellent. Neymar’s skill in dribbling and play-maker ability is often compared with compatriot Pele and Ronaldinho.
Now the Jupiter-Venus-Mars running current from 19 May 2018 to 15 July 2018 is good for his career. Mars and Venus conjoined in the 2nd house is receiving the aspect of Jupiter which is good Raja Yoga. Neymar will score important goals which will take his team to at least Semi Finals or may be even further in the finals of the tournament. However, since the sub period lord Mars rules the six house of injuries so he may not appear in all the games of the tournament. The Chara dasha of Gemini-Sagittarius running shows that he may get himself injured in one of the important games which will cost Brazil badly. Atamakaraka Mars is in Sagittarius sign which can give Neymar an injury at most crucial time of the tournament.
Horoscope of Lionel Messi
24 June 1987, 05:55 hours at Rosario , Argentina
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Moon 3 years 11 months 27 days
Karakamsha is Gemini
I have discuss the horoscope of Lionel Messi on my website in length and have predicted an ordinary performance from him during the world cup in 2018. See the 3rd lord Moon exalted along with lagan and 6th lord Venus showing why he is so artistic and creative sports person on the field. The benefic planets involve in this yoga also make him very humble and sincere sportsman.
In the horoscope of Lionel Messi the dasha of Jupiter-Jupiter-Rahu is running from April 2018 to August 2018. The Jupiter is Vargottama and placed in the 12th house as the lord of 8th and 11th house making a ‘Veepreet Raja Yoga’. But since this Jupiter is in the 12th from both lagan and Moon so it can not give him the ultimate achievement of winning the world cup and making him great like his compatriot Maradona.
In Chara dasha Sagittarius-Virgo period is running till 23 June later the Sagittarius-Leo will start. The Amatayakaraka Saturn falls in the 12th house from Sagittarius which is not desirable. The 10th house from Virgo is good but later the sub period of Leo will start from the 23rd of June from where the Amatayakaraka Saturn giving aspect to the 12th house shows some losses.
In transit the Saturn is moving from the 8th house from both lagna and Moon which is ‘Kantaka Shani Gochar’ indicating time for retirement. Messi is likely to leave the captaincy of Argentina after the disappointment in the world cup. His team might struggle to reach into the semi-finals though Messi’s personal performance will be pretty decent.
Horoscope of Joachim Low
3 February 1960, 12:45 hours at Schwarz , Germany
Karakamsha is Leo
The horoscope of German Football coach Joachim Low is running under weak dasha of Rahu-Venus from June 2017 to June 2020. Venus the sub period lord is badly placed in the 8th house in Rashi chart. When under his guidance the Germans had won the Football world cup in 2014 then it was Rahu-Mercury dasha in Vimshottari. Mercury involve in the Raja yoga with Sun gave him the glory of becoming the coach of world cup winning team. Under his guidance the Germany remain at the number one ranking in FIFA for many months.
But now the bad dasha of Rahu-Venus-Mars from May 2018 to July 2018 will give him lots of trouble. Germany may not even qualify for the semi-finals. I have also check the horoscope of Tony Kroos ( 4 January 1990, 12:56 hours at Greifswald , Germany) which shows the poor performance of German forward line. The dismal performance of Germany may force Joachim Low to resign from the post of coach of this very talented side. The Chara dasha of Gemini-Libra is running from March to October this year. The Atamakaraka Mercury falls in the 8th house from Gemini and the four planets, including Amatayakarak Mars, giving aspect to the 12th from Libra shows chances of his retirement as chief coach of Germany.
Horoscope of Hugu Lloris
26 December 1986, 16: 15 , Nice , France
Karakamsha is Gemini
The Gemini lagan horoscope given above is of French Captain Hugo Lloris who play as a goalkeeper. He is now under the maha dasha of Saturn which is in exchange of 9th and 6th houses lords in his chart. See the exchange of houses between Mars and Saturn in his horoscope. In the Gemini lagan chart of Hugo Lloris the 6th lord Mars and the 9th lord Saturn are in exchange which though is consider bad as ‘Khala Yoga’ but in the horoscope of a sports person it is a good yoga.
The dasha of Saturn-Saturn in Vimshottari will make him a tough competitor in the French box on the field. The world cup could be his tournament as a goalkeeper. Saturn is in own house in Navamsha and Dashmasha charts. In Jaimini Chara dasha the period of Aquarius-Capricorn-Leo from 16 June 2018 to 14 July 2018 is good for him. The Aquarius receive the aspect of Amatayakaraka Venus and also of Ganatikaraka Moon. The Capricorn is the 8th house from the lagan and 12th from the Atamakaraka Mars showing chances of an injurty. This is were he is venerable and it may become the reason of France’s failure to reach among the top 4 teams in the tournament.
Horoscope of Diego Costa
7 October 1988, 07:30 am at Lagerto ( Sergipe) Brazil
Karkamsha is Virgo
The Libra (Tula) lagna horoscope given above is of Diego Costa who was born and brought-up in Brazil but played most of his football in Europe. He had played two international matched for Brazil in 2013 but later shifted to Spain to get the citizenship their and play for its national team. At present he is one of the most inform player in Spanish side and is a prolific goal scorer for them.
In his Libra lagan chart the 3rd house has Saturn and 6th house has Mars which is good for a sports person. The Karakamsha lagna is Virgo having Sun and Mercury receiving the aspect of Mars and Saturn. The influence of Saturn and Mercury on Karakamsha is a yoga that can make him very famous in his career.
In Parashari Yoga’s the 9th lord Mercury with the 11th lord Sun is a good Dhana Yoga. In the 12th house Mercury and Sun are specially consider very good. The lagan lord Venus and the 10th lord Moon are in good Raja Yoga also. His maha dasha of Moon since December 2014 has given him good rise in his career. The present dasha of Moon-Jupiter in Vimshottari, which are in Gajakesari yoga in both Rashi and Navamsha, will give him good success in the FIFA world cup as a goalscorer for his team. But since Jupiter is in the 8th house so his side may not become champion this time though their performance will be very good. In Chara Dasha the Pisces-Cancer period is running at present. The Pisces has Ganatikaraka Mars in mutual aspect with Atamakaraka Mercury and Amatayakaraka Sun. These planets are giving aspect to the 12th house from Cancer showing some disappointment due to a possible injury to him.
Horoscope of Eden Hazard
7 January 1991, 12:05 hours at La Louviere , Belgium
Karakamsha is Libra
The Pisces lagan horoscope of Belgium’s captain Eden Hazard has excellent yoga’s for success in sporting career. The 3rd lord Venus in the 11th house of gains with 11th lord Saturn is in mutual aspect with lagan and 10th lord Jupiter. This connection of 3rd , 11th , lagan and 10th is very good for a sports person. The 6th lord Sun is in the 10th house getting directional strength. Eden Hazard’s performance in the world cup will be excellent during his Rahu-Mars-Saturn period in Vimshottari from 7 May 2018 to 7 July 2018. Rahu in the eleventh house of gains and Mars in the 3rd house of courage is very good. The sub period lord Saturn is involve in excellent yoga for success in sporting venture.
The Chara dasha of Cancer-Capricorn is not very favorable as the Amatayakaraka Moon aspect the 12th house from both. But the team of Belgium can reach into the semifinals under the leadership of Eden Hazard or may be in the finals of FIFA world cup. Among all the horoscopes we have analysis so far the horoscope of Cristiano Ronaldo , Neymar and Eden Hazard seems to be the strongest. I was not able to get the horoscopes of the any of the player or even the coach of Spain’s national team which is also a good contender to win the world cup. The foundation horoscope of Spain ( 22 November 1975, 12:45 hours at Madrid, Spain) do not show much promise for sports glory at present. So it will be Brazil or Belgium which has very good chances for winning the world cup football in Russia.
