Greetings friends , Sports fans and Astrology enthusiasts [ and alos those that are just bored surfing the web for insignificant blogs ] . Welcome to my second annual NFL Playoff prediction blog using Astrology and I promise limited commercial interruptions.
First a quick review of my predictions from the beginning of the season which you can find in the September archives on this very blog site. I correctly picked 6 teams records exactly and was within 1 game on 6 others. I correctly picked 5 of the 8 Division winners correctly and 7 of the 12 playoff teams correctly . Not great but over 50% and I‘ll put that up against the top prognosticator’s out there. 3 of the 4 teams I had making the conference championship games won 13 games or more and won their divisions. My big miss was Phillip Rivers being MVP and the San Diego Chargers actually being good, those Uranus transits can be tricky is all I can say there.
Okay enough excuses here’s my playoff predictions.
[ 4] NY Giants over Atlanta – The Giants are hot , Mars is past the Virgo stellium in Atlanta’s chart and the Moon of the game chart is conjunct Pluto in the Giants chart ..they will be focused, powerful and will control the game..take the Giants here , Atlanta will not match their intensity.
 Saints over  Lions- The lions had a great season and finally made the Playoffs again but Drew Brees had a record breaking season. The Lions will put up a good fight in a very high scoring game but the Saints but Mars is applying to the Saints Pluto , Uranus , Sun triple conjunction here ,sorry Lions , just too powerful. The Lions chart looks great for next year so heads up Lions fans , you had a great season.
 Saints over  49ers- The 49ers had a great season and shockingly won 13 games under new coach Jim Harbaugh . The bad news is Mars has passed the energy part in the 49ers chart. Too much offense by the Saints
 Packers over  Giants – The Moon is sitting on the Packers Mars , they will be hyped and full of energy here . Nice try Giants but the defending champs emotion will not be matched by the Giants on this day.
[ 3] Saints over  Packers- This was the toughest of all to pick. I think these are the 2 best teams in the NFL and I picked the Packers to repeat at the beginning of the season. These teams met in the first game of the season and it was the best game of the year with the Packers stopping the Saints at the goal line on the last play of the game. The difference between these 2 teams is almost nothing. The Moon is in Capricorn at game time and that usually favors the visiting team as it allows them to neutralize the Home field advantage a bit. Both of these teams have the 3 transits needed to win it all. After seeing the teams play through the regular season I ‘m going back on my pick from the beginning of the season and I ‘m taking the Saints by the slimmest of margins, this is literally a toss up and the last team to have the ball will probably win but I ‘m taking the Saints in the slight upset here. Last year Saturn was a symbol of destiny in the Packers chart and represented limitations in the Saints chart, this year it’s reversed. Saturn giveth , and Saturn taketh away.
 Bengals over  Texans – Houston finally broke through and won their division and are making their first playoff appearance but have had a ton of injuries and are down to their rookie QB . The Bengals and Texans both have rookie QB’s playing but unfortunately for the Texans Mars is sitting right on the Bengals Pluto on this day. The Bengals will impose their will and win their first playoff game since1990,the Texans had a good season but their good transits are passed .
 Steelers over  Broncos – The fighting Tebow’s shocked people this year but Tebow’s transits have cooled and the Pittsburgh Defense is just too good. The Moon in the game chart is applying to the Steelers Pluto and Jupiter is also conjunct Uranus in the Steelers natal chart. Too much energy , too much emotion and focus , Steel curtain wins this none.
 Patriots over  Bengals – not the laugher you think. Both teams have good Mars transits on this day. This will be close , the Bengals will find enough holes in the Pats d to stay with them. I look for the Patriots in a very close game, the Bengals will stick with them the whole way. I would not rule out an upset but I ‘ll take the Pats in a very close one.
 Ravens over  Steelers – This is probably the best rivalry in the NFL right now, these guys hate each other. The Moon in the game chart here is just past the Moon in the chart for Pittsburgh and Jupiter is sitting on the Moon in the Ravens chart. I think the Ravens will have just a bit more intensity here, get a lucky bounce or 2 and beat the Steelers for the third time this year in a close , defensive battle.
 Ravens over  Patriots – This is a tough one , but the Ravens have Pluto sitting on their Jupiter and their Nodes are activated by a square from Pluto and Uranus . The Ravens could self destruct with too many turnovers here, but I don’t think so , no one on the AFC side can quite match their intensity. I pick the Ravens to win the AFC , Ray Rice has been too good this year.
The Moon is applying to Mars in the Ravens chart here, that’s always a good aspect. Saturn is conjunct the South Node in the Saints chart at this time. They had a big aspect to their South Node 2 years ago also when they won their first Super Bowl. The Ravens will keep the Saints in check until late in the game here. Mars is still sitting right in the middle of the Saints Virgo stellium and it’s almost stationary concentrating that energy. I look for the Saints to win this one late in a close game.
If the Packers do defeat the Saints in the NFC Championship game I look for the Packers here in a close one also. I think the Ravens are just a notch below the 2 NFC teams offensively.
Remember to send your hate mail to MMETHENY1984@YAHOO.COM if I didn’t pick your team to win.
Until next season , ‘ciao
