Jimmie Johnson, born 17 September 1975
With Mercury Sextile Neptune in your sky, clear thinking will not be your strong point of the day. Rely on your inner senses and feelings.In your contacts with people, you have a much clearer sense of what is going on in others’ minds. If you can keep your perceptions straight in your head, you will be astonished by the insights about people that this influence can bring.So if you can keep conscious control of your emotions and not lose your objectivity, this can be a time of really meaningful communications.You have to be careful about the people you are with. On the other hand, it is good to be with friends whom you are devoted to. This quality of time can signify selflessness and genuinely caring for others without regard for your own needs,but this cannot be done in a martyred spirit.
Remember that you are in the midst of your Saturn square Mars transit, with the activity period from the end of October 2008 until beginning of August 2009. You must not get discouraged by the failures you experience at this time. This period will not last, and you can consider it a testing time for yourself and your ambitions. There is no need to assume that your present setbacks are permanent.
Just for 2009.
It doesn’t get any better after August, you have another transit coming then,
and you won’t be too fond of it.
Looking for the ‘scope’s? Looking for predictions?
The Church has moved to it’s new home at The Thunder Lounge Network.
You can find them here at www.churchofthegreatoval.com.
They will be up prior to the starting of the race and from here forward by Wed. of each week.
The Adventure begins!
I want to know if Ingrid is pregnant again…maybe a boy who looks just like her. Ella is a little female clone of Jeff. What a pretty little thing she is! You can see updated pictures of Jeff, Ingrid and Ella here…
Have fun all you 24 fans!
Well, now wasn’t that was fun!
Happy Harv is really happy tonite and deservedly so.
He raced an outstanding race.
Poor Biff. It was biff after biff after biff…Not quite full moon but sure looked like one ,didn’t it?
Jeff Gordon ran like, well, Jeff Gordon as Jeff Gordon should run. I believe he will have a very good year. J.J. coninues to show me that so far my prediction is right. Jimmie Johnson’s luck has ran out.
Tony Stewart ran like he had nothing new in his life. No biggie. 3rd place..new team…contented Smoke. He does seem relaxed and comfy doesn’t he? It was so strange not to see Ryan Newman on the track for the Shoot Out. The Bud Shoot Out minus The Rocketman is just not right.
Great to see David Stremme back where he belongs. In The Cup Races. Welcome home, Dave.
Poor Jr. He was having a fabulous night. It’s amazing to hear the Jr. Nation when he is leading. The Thunder rolls.
…And how ’bout that Jamie McMurray? I am afraid Jamie is going to need to run as tho his job depends on it, as it probably does…Rousch will have to drop a car, like it or not, in 2010. Jamie’s scope looks great for ’09, so he will end up one way or another in a ride he deserves to be in.
I would have liked to have seen Scott Speed and Joey Logano make it a little while longer, and was sick that Robby Gordon was out in a few laps. He could have been in Parker AZ. racing and winning, after all.
After hearing of Joey’s performance in the Arca race, even tho he placed well, maybe it was best he was out in a few laps in the Shoot Out.
I love Scott Speed. He will be my Rookie of the Year pick, no matter how he performs. How funny and charming can a guy be? But then again, he is Aquarian…how else could he be? His birthday is 5 days before mine.
For those of you who are patient and kind…my new URL will be www.churchofthegreatoval.com. The site is up and ready to play with, but I will cross post here and there until we have all the bugs out , running smoothly and redirected correctly. Check it out..give me your feedback and be patient. I know there are some kinks…I have not got all my links etc…or touches up yet, but you can see the site.
Thanks to Luke of The Thunder Lounge Network for all the work he has done for me on this!
Let’s help Luke to make Thunderlounge.com the best NASCAR blogging site on the Net.
So start updating your links… I’m almost outta here!
Until tomorrow…Tally Ho!
and won’t be posting for a couple of days
The game is a new, upgraded, fancified version that’s fun and easy to use. There is stats and commentary. A weekly newsletter will recap the results and preview the upcoming race. We’ll laugh at Steve. And Charlie. Maybe we will even laugh at ourselves.
If you like your fantasy NASCAR simple – if you want your fantasy racing picks to be easy, One and Done NASCAR Fantasy Racing is the game for you. It truly is, NASCAR fantasy racing for dummies. No offense.
Pick one driver, every week – but choose wisely Obi Wan, you can only use a driver once – and that’s it. Get it right often enough, and you will be rewarded with terrific prizes.
They will run three games. Two 13 week segments and then the Chase for the One and Done Cup.
So play One and Done fantasy NASCAR. Tell your friends and co-workers to play too. This is the perfect, NASCAR trash talkin’, water cooler braggin’, Monday morning conversation starter. It takes about 30 seconds to sign up. Tell your friends. It’s fun. Charlie wouldn’t lie to you. Steve ? (Figure that one out for yourself:).
SO… go join…I dare you to beat me.
Tuesday’s show brought Seven questions to The Die Cast Dude, Jerry Wilson.
The Dude was a busy boy yesterday…more on that later.
Hurry up. Cyber-RUN!

Saturn sextile Saturn: Limited warranty
End of October 2008 until beginning of August 2009:
This is a time of equilibrium and balance in your life, because now you have a pretty good idea of how to handle your own world. Events will run along more or less easily during this time. But it is important to note that it will not necessarily be an especially happy or peaceful time. Our lives are directed by our own demands much more than we realize, but very often those demands are unconscious. We would often be horrified if we knew what we are really trying to do. We try to protect ourselves and what we feel belongs to us from “threats” that often are not real threats according to adult criteria. Yet we structure our world according to them. This influence only guarantees that you will be successful in patterning your world. If you are very unhappy at this time, you had best get in touch with what you are really doing.
This can be a time when you are successfully approaching your main conscious goals in life. Or it can be a time when you are being run largely by unconscious “programs,” as if you were a computer. Usually you will experience a little of both of these effects. However, in the long run the positive possibilities are more useful to know about. Concerning the negative side of this influence, suffice it to say that the difficult and unsatisfactory aspects of your life that you are experiencing now require you to look into yourself more closely.
At this time you are particularly good at working with other people. You are able to see your individuality and differentness in a way that makes it possible for you to work with others in a complementary way so that neither you nor they feel competitive. You can work just as well with people who are above you and with those at your own level.
You approach your own goals methodically and practically, for you are not particularly idealistic at this point. You are much more concerned about how to achieve what you want in concrete practical terms. Use this time well, for it gives you the opportunity to lay a foundation that will protect you in the future.
1 February 2009 until 9 February 2009:
Under this influence you will move to make positive changes in your personal and your social world. But the most important question you can ask is, “In whose name do I want to change things?” You should realize that under this influence it is quite easy to exert power and make changes. The energies seem to flow in the direction you want, presenting you with opportunities for taking control in some way. However, you should be motivated by something more than your own personal ambition, even though that will be favored along with any ambition in your life now. But if this power is selfish and personally oriented, you will have trouble later on, and the results will not be lasting. You have to strike a balance and adopt a philosophy of “enlightened self-interest.” You must recognize that you benefit most when you can couple your own interests with those of the people you live and work with. In some way you must embody collective interests truly, not merely in your rationalizations.
You have a strong desire to reform and remake at this time, and you should be striving to improve conditions all around you, to renew and to serve as a vehicle for regeneration in your world. If you attain personal power in any way at all, use it to clear up and clean out. You may have the chance to lead or influence others, so use that influence to help everyone concerned to grow with you.
On the mundane level, this influence can coincide with professional success, political power or tremendous gains in personal wealth or resources. On a more humble level, it can give you the chance to straighten out situations in your life that have been sources of trouble for you.
Jupiter square Mercury: Big plans
13 February 2009 until 22 February 2009:
This influence signifies increased mental activity and a desire to communicate to others something that you consider important. Whether or not your message is important, you probably think it is, so you should take the time to see if that is true. There is no point in loading people up with your ideas and opinions unless they are worth something. And when you speak to others at this time it is vital that you listen to their response. For although you have big ideas and plans, there is a tendency now to overlook details. You may be unwilling to listen to criticism, but if you listen and heed what you are told, this can be an excellent time for making decisions, planning, negotiating and concluding deals or agreements. But this will happen only if you listen to others’ opinions.
This is usually a time of optimism and positive feelings. You have confidence in your ideas and are able to get them across. Communications of all kinds are important to you; for example, you may conceivably do some writing at this time.
It is also important not to overextend yourself. Make sure that your plans are no larger than your ability to cope with them. Sometimes with this influence the pace can get pretty hectic, because you have to handle many different affairs at once. This is when sloppy thinking can become especially dangerous.
During this period you may encounter resistance to your ideas and opinions from a number of sources. It is a good time to examine your ideas and see how well they really hold up in an argument. It is a good time to change any views that do not hold up because you can easily enlarge your viewpoint under this influence. You feel no need to be petty or quarrelsome, but you do feel compelled to defend the ideas that are important to you. Any truly important beliefs will hold up during this confrontation and become more a part of your basic mental pattern than ever.
Jupiter opposition Moon: The first move
19 February 2009 until 27 February 2009:
This is a time when feelings and emotions play an important part in your life, and relationships based on feelings and emotions become very important. This influence is usually experienced positively as warm feelings within yourself and from others. You feel emotionally very generous and giving. Relationships are usually quite good and rewarding now, and those that you have been building up for years may begin to produce results. You can now decide clearly which ones are worthwhile and which are not.
But there is a negative side to this influence also. It can make you feel very self-indulgent and undisciplined. You may feel that the world “owes me a living,” whether or not you really deserve it. It may also make you feel that others ought to be breaking their back to help you. In personal relationships, you may become very demanding without really offering anything to your partner in return. Instead of reaching out to make things happen in your life, you wait for others to make the first move and become quite angry when people insist that you take some initiative.
Your love relationships and relations with women can be either very good or very bad, probably not anywhere in the middle. It all depends upon your general reaction to this influence. If you are demanding in the manner described above, then your relationships will be bad. But if this influence arouses your feelings of warmth and generosity, they will be quite good. And this is a good way of gauging where you are with this influence, because encounters with others, especially women, will bring out its effects.
Mid March 2009 until beginning of November 2009:
This is such a pleasant influence that you may be inclined to sit back, enjoy it and do nothing. However, this is really a very important time in your life because you can reach out into new areas of life and have new and rewarding experiences. Your creative potential is enormous at this time, and you can very easily accomplish a great deal that would be difficult at other times. Your inner energies are strong, and you are full of self-confidence and the feeling that you can do anything.
This influence usually indicates good health and a feeling of well-being, although you may be inclined to put on weight if you are not careful. You may not feel inclined toward physical activity, but it would be a good idea to get some exercise. Make a particular effort to be outdoors. Hiking is a very beneficial activity at this time.
If you are inclined to physical activity, especially athletics, don’t take foolish risks through overconfidence. This influence tends to make you overestimate your energies.
This is an excellent time for all financial matters. You will feel like making your surroundings appear more elegant, and you may spend quite a lot of money doing so. This is perfectly fine, and you should think positively in all ways, but don’t let this concern with material acquisition blind you to some very real possibilities for inner growth.
Travel, either physically or mentally, often accompanies this influence. Take this time to broaden your understanding of the world around you. You have a strong interest in ideas that are different from what you normally know and encounter, and you are much more tolerant of different ways of living. Even people’s usually irritating traits do not bother you at this time. Also your sense of humor is much greater than usual, and you can appreciate the dance of life in all its glory.
Jupiter trine Mars: Ethical standards
End of March 2009 until mid November 2009:
This influence creates an easy flow of energy that enables you to act much more effectively than usual and to take initiatives that demand foresight, careful planning and considerable self-confidence. Almost any initiative that you take now will work out as you want it to. It is a good time to start any enterprise.
Your actions are governed by a strong sense of integrity. You may be ambitious during this time, but you feel that it is very important to achieve your goals correctly and in accordance with ethical standards. Others will recognize your integrity, which will increase their confidence in you.
Under this influence you have a strong desire to make something of your self in the broadest sense of the term. For example, there is the drive to succeed, particularly in some project that you have started yourself. There is also a strong need to create, even extending to the biological realm, where this influence can signify a desire to have children.
This influence also signifies actions aimed at enlarging your scope of action, giving you more freedom of movement and creating opportunities for new experience.
This is a good time to approach a person with whom you do not usually get along or someone you have had a temporary dispute with and make an effort to settle it. You will find it easy to convince the other person of the integrity of your motives because it is true, and they will respect that. If you are involved in a legal controversy, this influence is a good time to settle that dispute on terms favorable to yourself.
