The sign of Taurus shows that these countries who chose to stay in a Taurus region have the priority of being grounded in the place. This should support the physical and mental wellfare and help them to arrive emotionally and energetically at the venue faster than in other places.

The star sign Virgo shows the the priority for the decision was the protection of the players and their health. Apart from that Virgo stands for a reasonable training and food.

The two emotional signs Leo and Cancer are ranking third place with 8 countries each, who have chosen them for their accomodation. Both of them – each one in a different way – support emotional well being.

Whereas Besides Cancer stands for a family spirit and a feeling of being at home the sign of leo supports self esteem, emotional expression and euphoria. Leo could support also the physical wellbeing and the energy level of the players.

The star sign Gemini has conquered fifth place in the ranking and shows the priority of learning and communication during training and preparation for the matches. It could help to support technical and flexible play as well as the training of tactical systems.

Three signs are ranking sixth place together: Libra, Sagittarius and Capricorn.

As far as the capacities in play to be trained in these places thex stand for: capacity to play passes and feeling for the ball (Libra), capacity to shoot and flexibility in play (Sagittarius), capacity to control the game and endurance (Capricorn).

The star sign Scorpio has been chosen as a priority by only three teams during the tournament. A place in Scorpio could support mental and emotional strength as well as the will to strike. Apart from that it could support passion and general motivation although like the other two water signs may have a tendency to motivate the players through negative emotions.

Not a single country has decided to stay in a region referring to the fire sign Aries, the main star sign of Germany. Maybe such a region has not been considered to support relaxation.

Similarly only one country, Australia, has chosen to stay in the sign Aquarius. Regarding Australias geographic position far from all the other football scenes in the world this shows that Australia doesn’t fear to play the role of an outsider and that the Australians may even see their strength in this role. Besides Aquarius as the sign of the nerval system is not typical for a place of deep relaxation between matches.

We can assume quite the opposite of the star sign Pisces, the sign of dreaming. Only one country, England, resides in the sign Pisces. This shows that the english team has chosen the priority of being far from the reach of the mass media and energetic influences of the surrounding country and population.
