Astrology World Cup: Launch horoscope of the Jubulani Ball

The official ball of the 2010 World Cup finals

On December 4th 2009 – Adidas launched the ball that would be used at the 2010 World Cup. The ball was named Jubulani – which means rejoice!! What’s in a name you might ask? Anyway players, coaches, commentators and goal keepers in particular are not rejoicing. The ball it seems is highly capricous. Robinho: “Sometimes the ball has a genuine flight and other times it has a mind of its own so it has taken time to adjust and it will take us time still now.”  It has even aquired a nickname “Jumanji” after the Robin Williams film of the same name. The launch horoscope of the Jubulani Ball, time taken from bbc football coverage,  4 Dec. 2009, 15.57 Cape Town, South Africa.

This is a product launch – and Aries rises – which supports the idea of a new concept – and a huge amount of research and investment went into creating it. Mars in Leo rules the ascendant gives a huge amount of confidence in the product – and yet there is evidently something wrong in the design of the Jubulani Ball. The actual product being launched – the ball – falls under the second house of the horoscope. Taurus on the second house cusp gives the product to Venus in early Sagittarius – which is a mutable sign – very suggestive of movement and lots of it.  A capricious ball – Venus in Sagittarius!! Sport and football falls under the fifth house of games. Virgo on the cusp gives Mercury in detriment in Sagittarius rulership of this house and the players. The game and the players are not comfortable. Just as Mercury is due to leave Sagittarius, Venus enters it. However, it is the receptions that are important here. The ball in Sagittarius does not like Mercury the players – which makes it a user unfriendly ball. Adidas who are the launching party – represented by Mars in Leo in the 4th house – will need to review their product. Because if it holds back goals and that is what many commentators are suggesting – it will not travel far.  Guardian newspaper review of the ball.

    Very interesting Elizabeth! From the beginning of World Cup I noticed how unpredictable the Jabulani ball behaves. Shots are flying high and goalkeepers also seem to have problems with the ball.

    The latter is not the biggest issue though; what matters is how the actual players can control the ball and shoot it the way they intend. It shouldn’t be a lottery! So yes, I sincerely hope Adidas will review the product and modify the design or create a new ball.

    Its Jabulani actually and is Zulu for Happy Man!

  3. Confusing. It’s also being called jubulani – but since the BBC is calling it Jabulani I think I’ll go with that. As for the meaning(s) wikipedia gives rejoice, but happy man? MvgE

    Very interesting. Also because of the fact the ball was especially develloped to let attackers score more goals, but so far it is very hard for everyone to get it in. (except for a few unlucky goalkeepers)

    • Hi Alexander, Yep. Ideally the ball would love the players – and this would be shown by the receptions. Obviously since this ball doesn’t like the players, it is going to give them problems. Mind you – having watched the England match last night – I have to say a bad workman often blaims his tools!! 🙂 Liz
