Here are the driver’s with the most pertinent ‘scopes for tomorrows road race at
Sonoma, I mean Watkins Glen…Duh…(Thanks Becca, for letting me know I had landed on a dead brain cell again. Sometimes I stay there for days…) Remember that it is once again, New Moon, but at least not Moon Void of Course, as it has been during so many races this year. The New Moon sets the tone for the next month, for our hopes, dreams or fears,( which ever we focus on during it’s effects) to manifest. Terry Labonte has the best ‘scope of all.
Tony Stewart, born 20 May 1971
Sun Square Med.Coeli
This influence usually signifies a day of great activity in several areas of your life. You feel a great need to exercise your will and to determine where you are going and what you are doing. Often this is a day of hard work in your profession. But you will be motivated by tasks that relate to your own personal objectives. Therefore this can also be a day of conflict with others, arising from what they consider your selfishness and excessive self-involvement. Or as you pursue your own goals you may come into conflict with another whose goals are not in harmony with yours. No matter which of these alternatives you encounter, this is a time for enlightened self-interest. But you must continually remember the people around you and be very careful not to alienate them any more than necessary.
Ryan Newman, born 8 December 1977
Moon Square Uranus, Moon Trine Sun and Moon Conjunction Mars
Ryan’s scope is quite complicated during the race, however I think he will grab ahold of the negatives and turn them into a positive outcome.
This morning is not a good time to discuss any issues that are critical to you, because you will find it difficult to maintain your equilibrium and not fly off the handle. On the other hand, if someone challenges you unjustifiably, you certainly won’t back down without a fight. The main problem is that your sense of perspective may be so distorted that you cannot tell the important issues from the trivial ones and will defend both with equal vigor. There is also the risk that you will act hastily on many matters, impulsively and without foresight or planning. All you seem to care about is exercising your will and getting your own way. Obviously with this influence, you must try to calm down and be willing to compromise on any issue that is not really central to you.
This morning the quality of time arouses an independent and rebellious spirit in you. You are inclined to do exactly the opposite of what someone suggests and to reject whatever others say simply because they said it. For the same reasons you are impatient with restraints, duties and responsibilities. There is a great need to be free and to do something very different, maybe even a little bit wild. You have a strong craving for excitement with this influence, and you may act in ways that you would never consider in a more sober mood. This could be either good or bad, of course, depending on how conservative you usually are and how unusual or outrageous the action. For some people this can be a very liberating influence. For others it is a bit too much.
Ryan’s Moon Trine Sun gives him the ability to overcome and make the best of the aggression and anxiety he is feeling:
This is a favorable time for all kinds of mental work and communication with others. Now you are able to state your case forcefully before others if you have to. Any mental work requiring a broad overview of the situation is favored. This is also a favorable time for all kinds of group discussions and negotiations, at least from your point of view. Any kind of business negotiation will work out well because you can spell out all the requirements in detail. This is a good day for organizing yourself, another person or a group, again because of the clear-headedness indicated by this influence which will help you balance your own individual ego needs with those of others. They will feel that you are giving them a fair shake.
Jeff Gordon, born 4 August 1971
Moon Opposition Mars:
Today during the day you should be careful because the energies of this influence are quite discordant and could create trouble in your personal life. The problem is that you are rather emotionally excitable and easily irritated or angered now. With other people you are far less tolerant of individual quirks, and little things irritate you. You may also be in such a contentious mood that no outside aggravation is needed to set you off. Be wary of arguing just for the sake of arguing. But on the other hand, if you feel real anger, you should release the energy; don’t hold it in. Your domestic scene may not be very peaceful under this influence, but try to remain calm, no matter how difficult it is. Relations with women may be especially difficult.
Jimmy Johnson, born 17 September 1975
Jimmie’s scope enters some very good aspects tomorrow. He has a long term aspect, Neptune Trine Mercury, active until mid Nov. The other aspect’s in effect for the race are all trines and sextiles, so his chart could not be better. Chad’s on the other hand, is horrid. I hope we don’t see any more creative engineering issues. If we don’t, then Jimmie should do excellent tomorrow. He has the chart to win, if Chad’s aspect’s don’t mess him up.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., born 10 October 1974
Sun Sextile Mars
This is an excellent time for accomplishing all kinds of work. Your energy is high, and you have faith in your ability to achieve. Usually your health is quite good now, and this influence is extremely favorable for all kinds of physical activity. In fact it would be very bad not to be physically active, because these energies must have an outlet. If they do not, they can cause problems even when they are basically positive. Nevertheless you are in a self-assertive mood today. If you have to fight with someone to maintain your position in any matter, you will be able to do it effectively. You are not inclined to back down, although you will seek out a common ground where the two of you can agree, if there is any. Today, you should have no difficulty keeping amused, because your mind is sharp, alive and ready for all kinds of experiences. Even in the ordinary, everyday aspects of your world you see the possibilities for new knowledge and understanding. Quite frequently this influence indicates one of those days when the telephone never seems to stop ringing. It seems as if everyone wants to get in touch with you, and you have to contact many people too. Important communications from others may very well come by mail, telephone or personal conversation. And you will speak your mind with everyone. It is very important with this influence to let people know exactly where you stand on every issue. Your honesty and forthrightness in what you say will command the respect of others.
Juan Pablo Montoya, born 20 September 1975
This is an excellent influence for good times, entertaining and just having fun. Before you plan any hard work for this period, keep in mind that you are likely to put self-gratification and pleasure before work. You may find it difficult to put off something that you want to do in order to fulfill some duty. But this in not selfishness on your part, for you are quite capable of being generous and giving to others. You are more openly affectionate than usual and feel real love for the people around you. It is just that this aspect of your life – love, affection and pleasure – is more important to you now than work. This is a good time to give or attend a party. It is also a good time to be with loved ones, not only a lover or partner but also children, from whom you will derive much pleasure now. Tonight you have the capacity to work either with others or alone. If you work with others you will have to have a lot of independence or some kind of leadership role in order to feel that you have been given an adequate chance. Probably you will get that chance. You have a much greater desire than usual to take the initiative and much stronger feelings of courage and self-reliance. In working with others, you will be able to give them the feeling that your aims are theirs, so that they will work with you more willingly. If you have to defend your point of view when challenged, you will not back down but will argue your case with vigor and passion. Others will respect you for this even when they do not agree. You do not feel any need to make unwarranted attacks in order to maintain yourself. Tonight this influence is likely to increase the tempo of your social intercourse for a few hours. You find it relatively easy to verbalize your feelings. If you have a problem or situation that you cannot handle, this is a good time to take it to a sympathetic friend. Getting another viewpoint will help you. And, of course, you may do the same for someone else. Often this time is filled with news from friends or with letters and phone calls. Actually you are attracting communication from every conceivable corner of your life. This is a good time to write letters to the people you feel strongly about. But some people under this influence become so passive that it is difficult to take such an initiative. Their tendency is to allow others to take the initiative.
Robby Gordon, born 2 January 1969
Today during the day you will keep your emotions under control, not in a repressive, negative manner, but in a way that enables you to take a more sober and realistic view of life. You are able to put up with considerable adversity and strain during this time because it gives you patience and reserve strength. While you are not inclined to talk about your feelings to just anyone, you do not evade them in yourself. You may very well go off by yourself at this time to think about and evaluate your development. If you have a problem, seek out an older person whose wisdom you respect, who can offer emotional support and suggest practical and immediate answers. You need common-sense answers now that can be applied directly. This influence signifies a great opportunity to know yourself through your relationship with and effect upon your environment. You are highly disciplined and able to channel all your energies toward any objective you wish to attain. There is a close relationship between who you are and what you do. So take this opportunity to examine your life and the structures you have built into it. Today you can organize and make an overall plan for the way you would like to order your affairs and then arrange them accordingly. Because you work very thoroughly and meticulously under this influence, your efforts will achieve lasting results. This is also a good time to undertake any intellectual discipline or technique that requires concentration and attention to detail. Today during the day this influence gives you a pleasant feeling of restlessness, a desire for excitement but not to the point of disruption. You may feel like shaking up the people around you and jolting them out of their seeming lethargy. Or if you are not conscious of this desire in yourself, you may attract someone who shakes you up. Under any circumstances you want to be with exciting and stimulating companions. In your home and other close surroundings you are not willing to accept the same old situation. You may try to find ways to change your circumstances or at least provide some temporary excitement. It is possible that you will meet a new and exciting friend today, or an old friend will come back into your life unexpectedly. Friends may provide opportunities for advancement or for getting away from your usual scene for awhile.
Boris Said, born 18 September 1962
I am so ticked he was sent home. That rule needs to be changed, and pronto.
David Stremme, born 19 June 1977
Your mind is quite clear now, and you are able to handle the details of intricate mental work. Work with figures and tasks that require close attention to detail should work out very well. The only thing to watch out for, however, is that you may not find such work interesting enough to want to do it. This is a matter of individual temperament. Some people get restless under this influence when confronted with any routine work, but others handle their routine much more effectively. Also your ability to keep track of details makes this a good time for any business negotiations or other similarly complicated discussions. A contract or deal that you agree upon today will undoubtedly work out quite well, and you will be quite sure that you included everything important in the agreement.
Dale Jarrett, born 26 November 1956
During this time you turn your attention to your most personal relationships, in which you express yourself in a much more emotional manner than usual. This influence will your employer, relationships with opponents, or any other inherently emotional confrontation. Loved ones and partners are much more important to you than usual, for they provide you with a feeling of security and support. And to be fair, you have the same interest in proving these elements for your loved ones. But if you are in a negative emotional state now, this influence will tend to make you excessively jealous and possessive, or you may act unconsciously or automatically with your loved ones. Confrontations with men, both positive and negative, are likely to be more intense that those with women.
Martin Truex JR, born 29 June 1980
Tonight you desire experience at a very profound level and do not like superficial encounters. With friends and loved ones you seek the true meaning of your feelings for each other. Under this influence, deep-rooted feelings in a relationship are often brought to the surface. This has a therapeutic effect on most relationships, for it releases hidden energies that may be weakening the ties between you. During this time you should be careful not to set an objective for yourself and then become so obsessed by it that you lose track of everything else. Even this rather mild influence can result in a one-track mind and compulsive behavior. If this happens, it is a sign that hidden in this compulsion is a psychological energy that you should try to understand, because it could control some part of your life.
During this time there is tension in your life, but it can be used creatively if you are conscious of what you are doing. If you are not, this influence can signify a time of conflicts, especially with those closest to you, such as your partner and others whom you must cooperate with. Even your intimate, positive relationships may suffer at this time. The problem is that you will find it difficult to give in and compromise as necessary to proper cooperation. In any close relationship, there is often too much compromise, so that the real complaints and grievances are not aired, which in the long run tends to weaken even a fine relationship. Now is the time when these repressed grievances can be brought out into the open, which should result in a real clearing of the air between you. Tonight this influence is likely to increase the tempo of your social intercourse for a few hours. You find it relatively easy to verbalize your feelings. If you have a problem or situation that you cannot handle, this is a good time to take it to a sympathetic friend. Getting another viewpoint will help you. And, of course, you may do the same for someone else. Often this time is filled with news from friends or with letters and phone calls. Actually you are attracting communication from every conceivable corner of your life. This is a good time to write letters to the people you feel strongly about. But some people under this influence become so passive that it is difficult to take such an initiative. Their tendency is to allow others to take the initiative.
Kurt Busch, born 4 August 1978
Be careful how you talk to others today. Your energy level is very high, and you tend to identify your ego very closely with your ideas and opinions, so that you are quick to take offense. You have great capacity for mental effort today, but if any obstacle gets in the way of your energies, you will quickly become angry and irritable. And you are not likely to keep your irritation to yourself. There is considerable danger of arguments and disputes, particularly at home or at work. When you look back at this later, you may realize that there was nothing to argue about except egos; no real issues were at stake. But if you have to fight for your beliefs, today is the day to do it. You are sufficiently strong to carry your point of view.
Kyle Busch, born 2 May 1985
This is a two-day period when personal and subjective considerations will override everything else, but it need not be difficult. First of all, you feel a great need to belong and to relate to your friends or loved ones. This need turns on your emotional sensors and makes you very sensitive to the feelings and moods of the people around you, because you want to fall in with their rhythms and become sympathetic with them. This is the unconscious sign of relating to a group. Thus you are emotionally right there whenever someone needs your sympathy, warmth and understanding. You are very concerned about yourself, which is fine, but don’t distort this into a state of mind in which you cannot see anybody else’s point of view. Objectivity, especially in dealing with others, may be difficult to come by now.
Jamie McMurray, born 3 June 1976
Certainly, tonight emotional attitudes figure more prominently than usual. You should be careful not to lose your objectivity in a discussion or lose your sense of perspective. But you will not feel particularly good or bad with this influence; rather, you will feel any emotion more strongly. Sometimes there is a tendency to attract things to you at this time. Women may also be more important to you than usual. Objects, persons and places that are familiar to you are very important at this time because you need emotional reassurance from your surrounding. You may try to withdraw from others or from confrontations with unfamiliar or strange situations. This is not a negative condition; it arises out of a need to be by yourself for a while.
Matt Kenseth, born 10 March 1972
Tonight you are in touch with your feelings to an unusual extent and are more able to express them to others. You probably lack the psychological tension that usually drives people to talk about their feelings, but you can listen most sympathetically to other people’s problems now. The insight into your own feelings and the psychological equilibrium that you have now may enable you to offer effective help to others. This influence also signifies a state of balance between your feelings and your rational intellect. That is, you are able to think with great emotional sensitivity but still remain logical in your thought processes. Communications with women will be easy and quite favorable at this time, regardless of your own sex. And encounters with women may be quite informative in a positive way.
Greg Biffle, born 23 December 1969
Valid during several weeks: This is an excellent time for all kinds of mental work. You are much more attentive to detail than usual and especially concerned about using the best techniques available. You want everything you do to be as perfect as possible, so you plan carefully and work out every detail in advance. This attitude toward doing something well will enable you to get along well with employers and with employees. It is a good time to sit down with either of these groups and talk over any problems that exist. One problem to be careful about is criticizing others. This influence may sharpen your critical ability, and while you are less concerned with your own ego needs, you may also be rather careless of other people’s ego needs. Even in the interest of what you consider to be “objective” truth, try not to trample on others’ feelings.
There you go. Remember, if there are things you want to manifest in your life, focus and dream about them during the New Moon. It’s the time to start “gettin ‘er done.”
Onward to Watkins Glen, home of the most historical rock concert ever, besides Woodstock. Those were the days…
