Here are today’s significant Driver forecasts. Tony Stewart’s aspect’s of yesterday are still in full force, so say a little extra prayer for him. Personally, I do a lot of extra prayin’ during the ‘Dega races anyway. I know I am not the only one.
Today is Elliot Sadler’s birthday. Happy Birthday ElSad! Will he have the same birthday luck today as Kasey Kahne did on his birthday? I have posted Elliot’s personality profile, natal chart interpretation and six month forecast here.
It’s going to be a great race!
Tony Stewart, born 20 May 1971
Theme: Not at all obvious
** During this time authority figures and close relationships, especially old ones from the past, are most likely the objects of your revolt, if you feel it necessary to rebel. You will be much more easily angered than usual, because you quickly interpret everything as a threat to your ego. Above all else, you feel that you must assert your ego in your own highly individual way. And if you have been unconscious of the need for creative change in your life, you are likely to be quite explosive. Sometimes, however, the “explosions” happen to you, which is a sign from your environment that you need to break away from something, although what that is may not be at all obvious. An accident can be the sign of frustrated ego energies transmuted into destructive powers. **In effect April 29 – May 2, 2006
Elliot Sadler, born 30 April 1975
Theme: Happy Birthday!! Will it be extra special?
Happy birthday! Today the Sun returns to the position it was in when you were born. As would seem appropriate with this transit, today is a day of new beginnings, and the influences you feel today will affect the entire year to come. However, this does not mean that the whole year will be disappointing if today doesn’t work out exactly as planned. You are receiving a new impulse from the energy center within you, as symbolized by the Sun. Therefore any new venture that you start at this time will ride the crest of this new energy and will very likely come to an acceptable conclusion. Whatever you do or begin today will bear the stamp of your individuality more than anything else. This is the day to assert yourself anew.
Jimmy Johnson, born 17 September 1975
Theme: Tasks and work
**Valid during several weeks: The only problem you may have to contend with at this time is that you will probably not be on top of the heap. That is, you will probably have to work according to someone else’s wishes or needs. But because of this, you can find out whether you can lower your ego drives when the situation requires it. If you cannot you are likely to encounter quite a bit of discomfort and conflict at this time. This is the house of service, and you cannot spend all your efforts getting your own way now. Even if you are your own boss, your actions will be dictated by someone else’s needs, such as a client’s or a customer’s. Or your sense of obligation may be internal. Nevertheless, you can derive quite a bit of satisfaction from doing things well, and that will mean more to you now than any other kind of satisfaction.
Ryan Newman, born 8 December 1977
Theme: Setting sail
*** Valid during many months: During this time in your late twenties, you become conscious that you have grown up. Any structures in your life that have held over from childhood and adolescence appear inappropriate now. You recognize your adulthood and want to take your place among adults and no longer be regarded as a child. You are seeking independence from the factors that limited you as a child, and you are trying to establish your own way of thinking about the world. If during your early adult years prior to this time you were part of a group that tended to think alike, you may no longer want to think that way. That was fine when you were a young adult, relatively insecure in your independence and needing assurance from others. Now you want your own way of thinking. At this time you are likely to make rather significant changes in your life in order to achieve more perfect self-expression. You may be inclined to throw over an existing personal relationship in order to liberate yourself from the restrictions it imposed and to look for new relationships that will better fit your needs.
Mark Martin, born 9 January 1959
Theme:Strengthen the soul
Almost everyone feels in one way or another unsure of themselves, vulnerable or inferior. Today’s influence disturbs just this feeling of yours, but not painfully – rather this is noticeable as a yearning to be accepted with all your hurts, to find understanding and love – and thus also healing and relief. You are now far more aware of your own sensitivities, so that you are also in a position to be more considerate to yourself. If you do something good for your body today – for example, have a massage or visit a sauna – it will also strengthen your soul. Poetic and romantic music have a pronounced effect on you at this time.
Greg Biffle, born 23 December 1969
Theme: Constructive changes
This influence may have the effect of intensifying experiences in your love life. Through love you will seek feelings and emotions that transport you out of the ordinary. This same energy may lead to indiscretions in love relationships, which could cause problems later on. If you bear this in mind, however, you will have little difficulty during this time. There are powerful energies at work in your love life today and they can work to bring about constructive changes in your relationships. These energy patterns are dangerous to your relationships only if you are unconscious of their processes or if you are unwilling to deal with their root causes. You may have to handle quite a bit of energy to make this influence work out, but it could be a powerful force for good.
Carl Edwards, born 15 August 1979
Theme: A fair shake
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.
Matt Kenseth, born 10 March 1972
Theme: Changing moods
**Weak, transient effect: Tonight you experience rapidly changing moods, which may interfere with clear perception of your goals, especially if your goals have been set without much regard for your personal needs. If your goals are purely professional or make excessive demands on your personal and domestic life, this time will be somewhat disruptive. You may feel dissatisfied with your progress, or you may feel that no matter how much you accomplish, there is always something lacking. This influence sometimes signifies tensions in your domestic life. If you have handled this matter well, you should encounter the more positive side of this influence and be able to go about your business with a remarkable sense of wholeness. You will feel that your activities are satisfying, both professionally and personally.
Kurt Busch, born 4 August 1978
Theme: Thirst for action
During this time there could well be arguments in your circle of colleagues, friends or acquaintances. You are energetic, decisive, perhaps also a bit impatient and belligerent, and have little desire to take the sensitivities and weaknesses of others into account. Presumably there is no bad intention on your part – you just want to get things done. If you, however, with your thirst for action, think you can lightly overcome every objection and obstacle, you may well find that someone puts a spoke in your wheel and brings you back to earth. If this happens, you have probably, without conscious thought, just rejected or ignored someone, which is something you would find distinctly unpleasant were the same to happen to you.
Dale Jarrett, born 26 November 1956
Theme: Team Player
This influence is good for all kinds of relationships in that all your contacts with others this morning are warm and emotional. You do not choose superficial or formal contacts but instead desire to make a personal connection with everyone you meet. At the same time you feel a strong need to protect and nurture those whom you are close to. There is something of the maternal instinct in the way you care for others. You are also very sensitive to people’s emotional needs and wants, which enables you to respond to them at a very deep level of understanding. You will want to feel that you belong to any group that you associate with at this time. Fortunately you will also be able to make others feel that they belong with you. Your emotions are so much closer to the surface of your being that you can see them clearly.
Kyle Busch, born 2 May 1985
Theme: Your Profession and social standing
Valid during several weeks: This is a time when you should turn your attention to the most outward aspects of your life – your career, your role in the larger society and your standing and reputation within the community. You should also take this time to examine your life as a whole and see if you are going in the direction you want and making adequate progress in your life. This transit is future oriented rather than past oriented. You may have to deal with elements of your past, but only to make corrections so that you can plan more intelligently for the future. The only real danger of this transit is that if you have done something wrong or in a slipshod fashion it may be exposed now and trip you up in unpleasant ways. It would be a very good idea to look over your life and correct any situations that might give you problems in this way.
Jeff Gordon, born 4 August 1971
Theme: A pleasant respite
This influence brings grace, ease and pleasant social interaction into your life. It can also bring laziness and self-indulgence, but only if you are likely to be that way anyway. For most people this influence will be a pleasant respite from the daily grind. You just feel content, and your contentment affects others favorably, so that everyone around you today will be in good spirits. This is an excellent time for all social occasions, amusements and entertainments. You may meet someone who will be of great service to you later. This influence often benefits financial interests. It is a good day to make a major investment, particularly in entertainment, leisure activities or the arts. This is also a good time to begin a vacation trip.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., born 10 October 1974
Theme: A continuous dialogue
This influence is a powerful stimulus to the mind and to all kinds of communication and interchange with others. You will be engaged in an almost continuous dialogue with others today, which should tell you exactly how you stand with respect to them and how they are reacting to you. It is extremely important that you be receptive to anything that is presented to you. If your thinking is dominated by concern with yourself and your own position, to the point that you cannot hear what anyone else is saying, this is likely to be a day of argument and unconstructive dispute. But if you are receptive, you will be able to learn much. At the same time you can promote your own ideas by making it clear to others that your ideas are not a threat to theirs and that you are willing to work with them as a team.
Martin Truex JR, born 29 June 1980
Theme: Helping others
This influence stimulates your creative imagination and makes you much more sensitive than usual to aspects of the world around you. While you may be tempted to spend the day daydreaming, you will probably be more satisfied if you read romantic literature and poetry or listen to music. This is a good day for leaving the humdrum, everyday world and traveling in your mind to a fanciful and pleasantly unreal world. Don’t worry about wasting time. Everyone needs to fantasize like this from time to time, and you are not likely to get so caught up in it that you cannot return to reality. On the other hand, you are much more sensitive to subtleties and can catch other people’s moods effortlessly. Your attitude is very sympathetic, and you genuinely want to aid anyone who needs your help today.
Joe Nemechek, born 26 September 1963
Theme: Following through
This is a good time to take the initiative and start a new project. It will go very well, because you will have the insight as well as the energy to follow it through to the conclusion. During this time you will be most strongly motivated toward tasks that bring credit to you and express you as an individual. Greater self- confidence usually accompanies this influence, so if you have to present a project to someone, you will be able to do it much more effectively. Everything you do now will give you greater self- assurance and the extra drive and confidence that you will need in the future, when things may not run as smoothly. Probably the worst way to handle this influence is to do nothing, for you will lose an opportunity to prove your own worth to yourself.
Robby Gordon, born 2 January 1969
Theme: Clear and concise
Under this influence you are likely to have a rather busy day communicating and engaging in exchanges with others. It is a favorable time for all negotiations and business dealings, because your communication is likely to be clear and concise. Your mind is sharper than usual today, and you are receptive to what others have to say. You express your thoughts in a way that is easily understood. You may travel more than usual today, but it is likely to be in the world that is familiar to you rather than in a new and different environment. It is a good idea to use a day like this for routine business that requires a clear mind and considerable attention. Such matters will go much more smoothly than usual.
Kasey Kahne, born 10 April 1980
Theme: An eager mind
At this time you must express yourself and your thinking in every possible way. Your mind is clearer than usual, and you feel more alert and mentally sharp. At the same time you are very conscious of your purpose in any project you are engaged in, which enables you to express that purpose clearly to others. Just be careful that you aren’t putting so much energy into communicating with others that you aren’t allowing their communication to come back in to you. Also don’t let your own subjective point of view blind you to others’ points of view. Your eager mind may also attract the attention of someone above you, who will get in touch with you about some matter that is important to you. In general this influence favors communication with men rather than with women, but all communication is improved.
Jamie McMurray, born 3 June 1976
Your energy level will be high, perhaps too high if you are not careful. Watch for signs of irritable impatience with others whenever things do not go exactly as you planned. Be assertive only when the situation calls for it, not whenever you feel like it. Also watch out for baseless conflicts with others, which you may not necessarily instigate yourself. Today you should be particularly careful of conflicts with authorities. Voice your complaints if they are legitimate, but expect a certain amount of hostile reaction to them. Also be careful that the tone of your complaint does not aggravate this hostility. What you get is usually a function of the energies that you put out. On the physical level, try to find an outlet for your vigorous energies.
Kevin Harvick, born 8 December 1975
Theme: Clear and precise
This is an excellent time for making plans, thinking things over or communicating in any way with others. Your thinking is clear and precise. This influence should also arouse your curiosity about the world around you and make you want to learn about a new subject, either through study or direct encounter. You might want to spend the day reading, or you might go out to a museum, art exhibit or other event that will stimulate your mind. Even a conversation with friends could be the source of a new idea that your mind can latch onto. This is a good time to get a point across to others, although your primary motive will probably be to communicate rather than to score debate points. Your attitude is much more objective than at other times, and you only want to get at the facts.
Denny Hamlin, born 18 November 1980
Theme: Enjoyable day / Creative ideas
This influence does not signify anything earthshaking, but it is a good day for all kinds of enjoyable activity. Although this is not an especially energetic time, it is good for any work you have to do with others, because you create a spirit of camaraderie and togetherness, which makes the work go faster and more smoothly. If you need to make a good impression on others, this influence will assist you. But it is for recreation and pleasure that this influence is really at its best. You feel like having a good time, and almost anything you do will work out that way. It is especially good for amusing yourself with friends and having a party. This is also a good day for creative and craft projects. Not only do you have the physical energy for the work, you also have the creative ideas.
Kyle Petty, born 2 June 1960
Theme: Enjoy yourself
Under this influence you are likely to feel quite good about yourself in a positive way. Also you will want to be with other people, particularly to have a good time. You do not want to attend to anything that is not immediately enjoyable and gratifying. It is a good day for play, although you can get work done if you really enjoy what you are doing. With this influence you also seek to expand your daily routine. Today you won’t be satisfied to do what you usually do. You would like to learn more about yourself, the world and other people. This is a good day for beginning a trip, especially a vacation. It is a time to relax from the rigors of everyday life and enjoy yourself. Despite your present casual approach to life, in your encounters with others you are able to make an impression.
Bobby Labonte, born 8 May 1964
At this time you have to deal with your own hurt feelings – either you are reminded of old wounds by some incident, or a sore point is disturbed again. Maybe you feel a little weak and are conscious of a certain aversion to handling the usual everyday interchanges – a feeling as if you were coming down with flu. If you now have the need to be alone, then that is what you should really do. If you make too many demands on yourself or if you are not left in peace, you may become hurtful to others – for example, your children if you are a parent – as a result of a certain indifference. Fortunately, this influence lasts at most half a day.
Casey Mears, born 12 March 1978
Theme: Led to excess
This is usually an agreeable time, in that you feel well and enjoy the company of others. It is good for doing anything that you really enjoy, as long as there is nothing that you have to do. You are likely to have very little self- discipline. In fact, you are likely to indulge yourself in many ways that may not be good for you. Also be careful if you go shopping. Do not buy anything unnecessary, unless you have some surplus cash. There is a tendency to buy expensive things, especially jewelry, fine clothes and art objects. On the other hand, if you proceed with some discipline and know what you are doing, you can make some excellent investments at this time. Avoid doing anything on impulse, because although your mind is capable of making good decisions, your emotions are likely to lead you to excess.
Jeff Burton, born 29 June 1967
You will have quite a lot of communication with others today through conversations, letters, phone calls and so forth. Use this interchange to test out your ideas and see how people react to them. If you have made such a strong commitment to a particular position that you are unwilling to see it challenged, you may be quite upset by some of the reactions. But that would be a poor attitude to take. You can correct your thinking on a number of issues without too much difficulty now. Even with the best intentions, however, you may run into quite a bit of disagreement today. This does not necessarily mean that you are wrong but that you should reexamine your position. If you find that it is difficult to reach compromises, delay any negotiations or discussions until another day.
Jeff Green, born 6 September 1962
Theme: Loaded with energy
*** Ego energies and physical energies run very high during this time. You will feel positively loaded with energy, for which you must find an adequate outlet, or you will have problems. The best way to handle this influence is to do some necessary heavy physical work. But that will work out only if you derive satisfaction from doing it. Sports, if you are at all athletic, is an excellent outlet. If you just sit around, you will begin to feel itchy and restless for no apparent reason and then become quite irritable. In this mood you will snap at anyone who comes along for no reason at all. This time is quite good for initiating any new project on your own. It is a time of beginnings, and you should use it for that purpose, particularly for projects that you will be identified with and be given credit for.
As above, so below.
Enjoy the race!
