NASCAR Astro – Predictions for Dover

Here are the significant aspect’s and forecast for the Monster Mile at Dover. Our prayer’s of course go out to Tony as his shoulder heals and wish Good Luck to the Iron Man covering him if needed.

**We found this car in the woods of the Wallowa Mountains of Oregon. I am waiting for Dale to start it so we can get out of the hail. Ah…the good life.

Hopefully it will keep running. The tires make the roads a bit rough.

We are leaving again and won’t be back until June 3rd. We have had a such a wonderful trip, we have decided to extend our little vacation. Came home to get some more gear, take the cat to to cat hotel (he is very mad at us by the way) and do the ‘scopes. Can’t let a few people down…

Caution
When communicating or cooperating with others we often encounter certain unspoken differences, reservations or sensitivities. These do not seriously hinder the process but interfere insofar that one must be circuitous and considerate – a circumstance that one accepts but in fact cannot really understand. This applies to dealings with others and, it must be supposed, when others deal with us. This influence offers the possibility of either raising such issues in conversation with others or being made aware of them in oneself. It is especially important that this be dealt with in a delicate and sensitive manner by both parties. Without real empathy and readiness to understand, it will be impossible to gain much from this quality of time.

Ryan Newman, born 8 December 1977
The larger view
Psychologically, this influence broadens your comprehension of any issue that you are interested in and your understanding of life in general as you encounter it today. You are concerned with the largest, most comprehensive possible view, and you are eager to incorporate new information into your way of looking at the world. At the same time you are intellectually more tolerant of other viewpoints, seeing them not as a threat to your views, but as a way of enlarging them. Your ability to see the larger view today enables you to plan with foresight. Where others see only confusion, you can see a pattern and come up with insights that will amaze others. In business or social activities you are able to organize very effectively, grouping people together so they can work most efficiently.

Mark Martin, born 9 January 1959

Unrealistic ideals
During this time you should be careful of your relationships. This influence has many possibilities, some good, some difficult. Your unrealistic ideals may lead to acute disappointment with loved ones, unless you make an effort to understand and accept the reality of your relationships. A typical illusion to beware of is picturing yourself in a love relationship as the unselfish, giving one who sacrifices everything for the other. This is a blatant ego game in which the ultimate purpose may be to gain control over the other by manipulating feelings of obligation. Although this influence is capable of producing a beautiful romantic experience, you cannot depend upon it continuing forever. Enjoy it for itself and do not make demands upon it. Beauty does not need to be justified.

Tony Stewart, born 20 May 1971
Trivial pursuits
Today, you are inclined to use your mind for leisure pursuits, such as reading for amusement, going to an art exhibit or concert or chatting with friends. Even though these activities seem somewhat trivial, they are an important part of your life, because they give you a chance to rest between heavier concerns. Do not hesitate to take the day off if you can, and simply relax and enjoy it. This influence is important in another way, for it puts you in touch with your feelings, especially those of love and friendship. It is important to know that these feelings are present in your life. In other words, even though days like today do not seem very significant, these are times that justify all the other more difficult ones. That is why they are important.

Ricky Rudd, born 12 September 1956
Thrifty and careful
Weak, transient effect: This morning you may feel like being alone with your thoughts and feelings. Your mood is not usually bad or depressed, you simply desire to be calm and reflective. But you are probably not in the mood for frivolity. You prefer the company of serious people, if any, and you want the conversation to be about important topics. Under this influence you may feel the need to consult someone whose higher vantage point you respect. You are able to balance your emotional needs with your sense of duty and obligation. While you are aware of your feelings, you do not let them overwhelm you. In all proceedings you are thrifty and careful. You are also very careful and thorough in your approach to any kind of work now. It is not likely that you will have to do any task over, nor will anyone else have to clean up after you.

Greg Biffle, born 23 December 1969
Flog to death or accept
This influence gives you the chance, with positive support from the quality of time, to start to look into, or to delve deeper into, those areas of knowledge which try to give practical answers to human problems. These include not only all forms of healing, but also psychology and astrology as well as areas such as sociology and education. This is a good time to go deeper into the theoretical, philosophical fundamentals of your subject. The danger of this influence lies in the intellectualization and “flogging to death” of experiences and situations which actually call for feeling or sympathy. On the wholly personal level, to do with you or someone close to you, such an approach hinders a compassionate understanding and effective acceptance of psychological realities.

Jeremy Mayfield, born 27 May 1969
Unconscious drives
This is a time when you emotionally identify with your possessions or whatever you value. This can lead to a very strong attachment to material objects and a general attitude of possessiveness about them, which can be a problem if someone needs to borrow something of yours, for instance. Or you may unconsciously identify with your own value system to such an extent that you feel every challenge to it as a direct challenge to yourself. You may have to defend yourself in areas where you really have nothing at stake. Traditionally this influence is considered to be a bad time to spend money, because your attitudes toward possessions are so conditioned by unconscious drives that you are not likely to make an intelligent decision about buying something based upon your real needs

Carl Edwards, born 15 August 1979
The weight of the world
Today may seem depressing and restrictive. You may want to break out of your rut but find that you cannot, because some barrier is holding you back from going out and being yourself. Other people may seem to get in your way and interfere with what you are doing. Physically and psychologically, your energies are low at this time. You may feel that the weight of the world is too heavy, but you don’t expect help because you have not asked for it. However, you have probably made that choice yourself. You reinforce the very circumstances that make you feel lonely and isolated. What you must do is break out of this vicious circle and take a good look at the world and the people around you. Even though you are having some problems with them today, the situation will improve rapidly.

Matt Kenseth, born 10 March 1972
Discordant moods
Weak, transient effect: Today during the day certain energies are at a high level. Probably you will feel quite physically energetic and want to accomplish a great deal. However, your energies may not be working very smoothly, because different areas of your life are working against each other now. You will have to work hard to develop harmony between your home and professional life, your conscious and unconscious personality, and your mind and feelings. You can accomplish a great deal as long as you don’t get carried away by conflicts in these areas. In truth, for your life to work smoothly now, both sides of the areas mentioned above must be working together. Discordant moods can create difficulties in relationships at this time, especially if you are having any kind of internal emotional struggle

Kurt Busch, born 4 August 1978
In the limelight ***

At this time you are very certain who you are, and you are not about to let anyone tell you otherwise. You may express this energy as a strong desire to work, and indeed this is an excellent time for work, especially if you get the credit for it. This is not a good time to work behind the scenes for someone else. You are likely to have serious conflicts with anyone who tries to take credit for what you have done. If your employers do not give you adequate scope, you may very well feel very angry toward them. Beware of acting impulsively or from purely egotistical motives. While it is necessary to assert yourself, don’t overdo it. You will only provoke opposition from people who try to cut you down. Carefully planned activity, however, can bring you great success.

Dale Jarrett, born 26 November 1956
Daydreaming
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.

Elliot Sadler, born 30 April 1975
Feeling sentimental
Weak, transient effect: This morning you are under a very pleasant, light-feeling influence. You enjoy being with others and find all social contacts interesting. Most people feel very affectionate toward loved ones during this time, and there is a strong desire to support and protect those people who are important to you. But be careful not to act too possessive or to try to limit anyone’s freedom. If you behave in this manner, you will experience this influence discordantly and will have trouble with your loved ones. You may feel very sentimental under this influence, for it tends to reawaken memories of the past and causes you to feel very attached to them. Also you should beware of any tendency to overindulge in food or drink. Discipline is not one of the strong points of this influence.

Kyle Busch, born 2 May 1985
Handling the trivia
This is a good time for communicating with people, writing letters or planning a course of action in your career or your home and personal life. You are inclined to spend a lot of time thinking under this influence, and others may see you as being all thought and no action. However, this is the time for plans, not for action. Your mind should be very clear today, and you should be in touch with your feelings and emotions to an unusual extent, even about aspects of yourself that you normally keep hidden because you cannot express them clearly. Therefore, the plans you make today are more in keeping with your real inner desires than usual. In your job this is a good time to clear away paperwork and handle the more trivial aspects of your work, because you can pay very close attention to details.

Jeff Gordon, born 4 August 1971
An understanding atmosphere
You are particularly perceptive during this time – you have an almost infallible feeling for the fine, often unnoticed sensitivities of others and can take these into account during team-work and in conversations. In this way you create an open, sympathetic atmosphere in which your counterpart feels relaxed and secure. This is an excellent background for all personal contact and private talks with people who are close to you. Perhaps small hurts that others have suffered, which have made them sensitive, will come up in conversation. Should you find out that you yourself – even if unintentionally – were the cause of this injury, you now have the opportunity to make this good. Even small wounds need to be healed.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., born 10 October 1974
Learning from relating
Valid during several weeks: At this time you should learn more about yourself through intimate one-to-one encounters with others. If you are married or in a close relationship, use this time to examine your relationship with your partner and to discover what needs this relationship does and does not fill in your life. Try to discover how well you fill your partner’s needs as well. In any seventh-house relationship, whether it is a marriage, business partnership or other kind of partnership, you and your partner function as a unit, either in a specific area, as with a business partner, or in all areas, as with a spouse. For your own benefit, you must be as good for your partner as she is for you. This is not a time when you should try to go it alone in any type of activity. You should try to work with someone else, or at least seek out the opinion of another person in an advisory capacity.

Martin Truex JR, born 29 June 1980
Your negative side
Weak, transient effect: Today during the day you are inclined to keep your feelings and innermost thoughts to yourself. A sense of loneliness or isolation frequently accompanies this period of time, or depression and a general sense of pessimism. Domestic problems may also accompany this influence, usually because you feel that in some way your domestic life is not giving you what it should. This is part of a larger feeling that you are not getting support or assistance from anyone or anything, which may or may not be true. Your real problem is either that you are cut off from your emotions or that your emotions are too unpleasant to deal with. This influence may force you to briefly experience what you consider to be your negative side. Thus there is a strong conflict between what you think of yourself and what you think you should be.

Joe Nemechek, born 26 September 1963
Mental activity
This influence indicates a day of busy mental activity and many communications with others. You will be busier than usual with letter writing, paper work and group conferences, which should run smoothly, although under certain circumstances there could be problems. Be especially careful not to speak or otherwise communicate from purely egotistic motives. Make your point and let it go at that, because chances are your statement will have enough energy to be effective without making a controversy of it. If you do turn it into a controversy, you will encounter opposition from people who are similarly inclined, and communication will grind to a halt. Do not try to defend any ideas that are clearly shown to be invalid.

Robby Gordon, born 2 January 1969
On all levels

This is the best possible time to express your feelings and emotions, but it is not so favorable for reasoned logical communication. You may be quite capable of reasoning well under this influence, but pure reason and logic alone cannot communicate all that you want to express. During this time you have to communicate on all levels, not just with your mind. On the other hand, if you are in a reasonably tranquil state of mind now, you will be a much better listener than usual. Your mind is receptive to the point that you receive not only words but also another person’s moods and feelings. You can listen very sympathetically, because you can literally feel with the other person. This influence favors discussion with anyone who communicates with feelings as well as words.

Kasey Kahne, born 10 April 1980
Your negative side
Weak, transient effect: Today during the day you are inclined to keep your feelings and innermost thoughts to yourself. A sense of loneliness or isolation frequently accompanies this period of time, or depression and a general sense of pessimism. Domestic problems may also accompany this influence, usually because you feel that in some way your domestic life is not giving you what it should. This is part of a larger feeling that you are not getting support or assistance from anyone or anything, which may or may not be true. Your real problem is either that you are cut off from your emotions or that your emotions are too unpleasant to deal with. This influence may force you to briefly experience what you consider to be your negative side. Thus there is a strong conflict between what you think of yourself and what you think you should be.

Jamie McMurray, born 3 June 1976
Hurtful argument **
During this time you should be careful and keep a tight rein on yourself – especially if you are anyway of a spirited disposition. If you are after some kind of “conquest”, it is quite possible that under this influence you ignore warning signs and advance too directly and abruptly. There is also the danger, at the moment, that you scent competition or opposition where there is none. If you are too sensitive and quick- tempered, take every criticism personally and react in an offended manner, then around every corner is an enemy, every conversation can turn into an argument in which you finally, without reason, and probably without conscious intent, hurt others and are presumably yourself hurt to the same extent.

Kevin Harvick, born 8 December 1975
Sweet talk
This is a very agreeable influence that makes you feel quite positive and friendly toward everyone you meet. Also you are in tune with your feelings, and you speak with considerable sensitivity. This is a good time to meet new people, because you can project the most agreeable side of your personality. If you like to make sweet talk, that is this is the time for it. Of course this is an excellent time to talk with someone about your feelings of love and friendship, for it will be easier than usual to talk about these feelings. Often embarrassment or shyness prevents you from doing this, but that should not be a problem now. In general, your approach to life today will be lighthearted, and you should enjoy the day very much. You may find it difficult to adopt a serious attitude about anything, however.

Denny Hamlin, born 18 November 1980
The emotional consequences
This is a favorable time for communication about love and relationships. It will not make the communication either good or bad, but it will help to ensure that communication happens. You will think about and want to discuss your relationships, not only love affairs but also friendships and other kinds of relationships. This is a good time to confront your partner with any problems in your relationship. You may be able to reduce the tension between you because you are calm, rational and detached. The rational side of your personality does not take emotional matters seriously. It likes talk and intellectual exchanges, without giving thought to any emotional consequences. Be careful of what you say about friends and loved ones under this influence.

Kyle Petty, born 2 June 1960
Deeper understanding
This quality of time will help you to develop a deeper understanding of those psychological areas that are connected with the experience of pain, suffering and rejection. This influence is especially well suited to so deepening the understanding of these interrelations that the first inklings of how to carry out a healing can be perceived. During this phase it is important to talk to other people who are interested in this theme. This time is well suited to penetrating the complicated connections and dependencies between human behavior, the psyche and early injuries – to differentiate between cause and effect -, whether for yourself or for someone who has confided in you.

Bobby Labonte, born 8 May 1964
Ego energies **
During this time you should avoid rash and impulsive actions, for they will alienate others, create enemies and in the long run undermine your own interests. Your ego energies run rather high now, but in such a way that you are likely to assert yourself inappropriately. You may issue completely unnecessary challenges to the people around you. Most frequently you express this feeling as irritability, excessive impatience with others’ actions, argumentativeness and general touchiness. This is a good time for getting work done, if you can control your impulsive behavior. Any task that requires sheer physical energy with little finesse or attention to detail is excellent, because it allows you to work off energy without suppressing the natural impulsiveness and exuberance of this influence.

Casey Mears, born 12 March 1978
Shared experiences *
Today you are likely to be in a dreamy and romantic mood, and you will seek a quiet place to spend time with someone you love. This is not a wildly erotic influence, and although good for sex, it is mainly a time for two people to quietly express their affection. You want to be with someone whom you have a lot in common with or someone who has shared your experiences. With friends, you will want to talk about old times and things that happened in the past. More than anything else, you base your relationships today upon experiences that you and others share. This is a good day to spend pleasantly at home. Domestic surroundings appeal to you and it is easy for you to express your affection. You will have strong feelings of love for your family and relatives under this influence.

Jeff Burton, born 29 June 1967
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.

Brian Vickers, born 24 October 1983
Irritability **
This is a very energetic time for you, when you can assert yourself effectively and accomplish a great deal of work. The problem is that you will be tested all along the line and forced to demonstrate the validity of what you are doing. You may be challenged either by circumstances or by other persons. Your success depends largely upon how well you express yourself in a situation. Being quite unwilling to back down on any issue, you are not moved to make compromises with others. But that is precisely what you should do, especially if you can manage to compromise without giving ground on essential points. Be careful that you don’t become so wrapped up in your own beliefs that you cannot see which parts are essential and which are not.

Scott Riggs, born 1 January 1971
Making discoveries
This is an excellent day for engaging in new activities and for making discoveries about yourself and the world around you. Your life now has an exciting quality that is not always present. Take advantage of this excitement to learn about yourself in ways that are not usually possible. Your heightened perception of your world will help you make changes with a complete understanding of how the various parts of your life are interrelated. This is a good influence for studying any discipline that can reveal new and stimulating aspects of the universe. It favors the study of science, technical disciplines, astrology or other branches of the occult. You want to broaden your understanding, and the more exciting your study, the more actively you will pursue it.

NASCAR at Lowes Astro-Predictions and Driver Horoscopes

Here are the influential and important Astrological aspects in regards to both races at Lowe’s:

** Jimmy Johnson, born 17 September 1975
5/27/06
Theme: Learning from relating
Valid during several weeks: At this time you should learn more about yourself through intimate one-to-one encounters with others. If you are married or in a close relationship, use this time to examine your relationship with your partner and to discover what needs this relationship does and does not fill in your life. Try to discover how well you fill your partner’s needs as well. In any seventh-house relationship, whether it is a marriage, business partnership or other kind of partnership, you and your partner function as a unit, either in a specific area, as with a business partner, or in all areas, as with a spouse. For your own benefit, you must be as good for your partner as she is for you. This is not a time when you should try to go it alone in any type of activity. You should try to work with someone else, or at least seek out the opinion of another person in an advisory capacity.

5/28/06
*# Theme:Cruising for bruising
This influence confers a tremendous intellectual and mental energy. You can work with your mind much longer than usual and thereby accomplish quite a bit. At the same time you will feel intellectually competitive and fond of debating with others. The negative side of this influence is that if you take yourself and your ego too seriously, you may speak and act during this time as if you were spoiling for a fight. You may feel quite irritable and even be set off by rather trivial incidents. Often you will act defensively on issues that you have no real stake in at all. One problem with this influence may be that you will find it difficult to determine when it is necessary to defend your position. You tend to identify your ego with everything you think, say and believe.

!! Tony Stewart, born 20 May 1971
5/27/06
Theme: Inner excitement
This morning you can assert yourself in a positive manner and stand your ground if necessary. You may feel more courage and confidence than usual, which you express by taking the initiative in making emotional contacts with others. You speak very directly and forcefully, but without being offensive, which others will respect you for. This is a good time to work as a leader with groups of people. You understand what is needed, and you can unify your objectives and theirs, usually by talking them around to your point of view. Whenever you talk with others, you radiate an inner excitement, as if you were ready for immediate action. Under this influence you have the capacity to start projects, although you should keep in mind that this is a short- term influence and its effects will not last long.

5/28/06
Theme: Deferred results
This is an excellent time for carefully planning and executing projects that require great diligence and patience. You will not feel like going out and moving mountains, but you will be capable of sustained effort. You can work patiently now toward goals that will be fulfilled in the future, for this influence often means deferred results. You are working more for tomorrow than today. But your concerns are very practical, and if you know that your present activities will be of benefit in the future, you will be content with modest results now. This influence can be very useful in times of scarcity or need, because you are willing to get along with considerably less. Even in times of plenty you will have a sense of discipline and will avoid valuable resources that may be only temporarily abundant.

*#! Ryan Newman’s horoscope is quite complicated and interesting this week. You can read it in it’s entirety here.

Mark Martin, born 9 January 1959
5/27/06
### Mars opposition Moon
Theme: Conflict
During this time you may find your own inward unconscious drives mirrored in someone else’s actions. Usually this occurs as a conflict in which the other person acts very irrationally and compulsively in ways that are detrimental to your goals. Look at this person very carefully. Although it may seem quite magical, he or she is really reflecting your own inward ego problems. The other person is yourself! This is because you tend to project your inner attitudes onto the other person, rather than experiencing the other person directly as he or she really is. Unpleasant as it may be to deal with someone who is being difficult, you may learn a great deal about yourself in the process.

5/28/06
### Theme: A stormy period
This influence is likely to coincide with a stormy period in your personal relationships. There will probably be a difference between you and your partner about some personal objective that you both are very closely involved in. Or a difference in your background and conditioning will cause you and your partner to see a situation very differently. Associated with these problems is the problem of identifying so closely with your own point of view that you feel your personal honor depends on having your views triumph. Under this influence any kind of team effort that you become involved in is not likely to work. If you can possibly arrange it, try to work by yourself on a project in which you have the total initiative.

!!! Greg Biffle, born 23 December 1969
5/27/06
Theme: High energy
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.

5/28/06
Theme: Creative activity
This is a good time for any kind of creative activity. If you are active in a creative field, you should be unusually productive today. Under any circumstances this is a good time to get involved with the arts or any other activity concerning beauty. It is also an excellent time to redecorate your home and make your personal surroundings more attractive. Your taste for beauty is aroused, and you are much more sensitive to the aesthetic nature of your surroundings. This is also a time when you feel very affectionate and have a great need to express your affection for others. You want to give and receive love. Usually this is a very pleasant influence, because you are pleasant to be around. Others can sense how you feel about them, which makes them feel good in return.

! Jeremy Mayfield, born 27 May 1969
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.

5/28/06
Theme:Buoyant optimism
This time is especially favorable for all business and commercial ventures and is excellent for negotiating personally advantageous deals. Your objectives and goals in the matter will be much clearer to you than usual, which enables you to deal very intelligently with others and thus get the best possible deal for yourself. Also everything you do has a kind of buoyant optimism that is also favorable to success. This is an extremely favorable time for dealing with authorities, for they will be open to your ideas and easily persuaded to your point of view. Legal interests are also favored now. Your activities under this influence should bring opportunities for personal growth by expanding your range of activities as well as your experience.

!! Carl Edwards, born 15 August 1979
5/27/06
Theme:Slightly out of focus
This is a very poor day for doing any work that requires disciplined thinking and precision. The world looks like an impressionist painting today, slightly out of focus and emphasizing large patterns of color and shadow. Work with numbers of strict logic will be especially affected. If you do this kind of work today, check it over for errors in a couple of days. Almost certainly there will be some mistakes. Communications today will be especially difficult. Even when you and another person are trying to be very clear, you may have misunderstandings. This is a poor influence for any important discussions about business or personal matters. Even if you are sure that you are speaking clearly and honestly, make sure that others are treating you the same way.
5/28/06
Sharing the day This is an extremely favorable influence for close relationships and one-to-one encounters of any sort. A marriage or love relationship should go smoothly today, with both of you showing a great deal of affection. If there are any difficulties between you, smooth them out today, because neither of you will want to argue. You will both be much more interested in making peace. This is also an excellent time to make an agreeable impression on someone new. If you have to work within a partnership, where keeping the peace is an important factor in your success, this is an excellent day. Any persons who are normally difficult to deal with will be easy to handle today. This is not a good time to be alone. You are in the mood for relating, and the day will not be complete in any way unless you share it.

!! Matt Kenseth, born 10 March 1972
5/27/06
Theme:Misunderstandings
Weak, transient effect: This morning you are very sensitive emotionally, but the impressions you receive through your sensitivity may not be very accurate. You have vague feelings about the circumstances and people around you, and you may feel very confused, because you aren’t sure whether you are being realistic or unduly suspicious and fearful. Misunderstandings with others are very likely, because you tend to feel that others have unfairly criticized or hurt you, although they have done nothing of the sort. Or you may feel that someone dislikes you for the flimsiest reasons. The reason is that this influence activates your subconscious complexes, which take over your moods and perceptions. Instead of reacting to the reality of what you see, you react automatically to the subconscious process set off by what you see.

5/28/06
Theme: Clear objectives
This is a good day for carrying out plans that you have been making, for making decisions and for communicating with others about important matters. However, there is one danger with this influence. Although you will hear other people’s ideas, you may not heed them adequately. It is not enough to play around in your mind with new ideas; you must also allow them to affect your own thinking. Do not be so caught up in your own cleverness that you cannot see it in others. But if you keep the dangers in mind, you can do extremely good work under this influence and make it come out well. As long as your frame of reference is objective and you see the needs of others as clearly as your own, your thinking will be very effective.

!! Kurt Busch, born 4 August 1978
5/27/06
Theme:In the background
Valid during several weeks: Fortunately, with this transit you will have a strong desire to experience life on a feeling level, and this is just what you need. One very real possibility at this time is that an encounter with someone will produce the need for very searching psychological self- inquiry or will force very powerful changes in your life. This person may challenge your value structure, or there may be a powerful intermeshing of your personalities. On the material plane, this transit can be a time of great concern about finances or resources held jointly with another person, such as a spouse or business partner. By itself, this is neither a good nor a bad indication; it simply makes the issue important. You may also be worried about trying to borrow money or get financial backing from a bank.

Theme:Ample opportunities
This influence arouses your sexual drives ( remember this can mean aggression) and makes you seek a physical relationship with another person, if you do not already have one. It favors an existing relationship, for both of you will be able to give and receive from each other and thereby gain gratification through the relationship. Entertainment and fun are two key themes of this time, which favors get-togethers and parties. You will get the greatest personal satisfaction from associating with others and having a good time. You will enjoy any activity much more if you can share it with others, for this is a very gregarious influence. This is a good time for artistic activity, as well as for getting together with others for artistic purposes. This influence should present you with ample opportunities to fulfill both needs.

** Dale Jarrett, born 26 November 1956

Theme:On the lookout
You will have a strong desire to experience with all of your faculties as a whole person, not just with your mind. Also you will defend your beliefs and opinions with emotional and passionate fervor. It is not that you are looking for a fight, but you will not run from one either. You won’t allow anyone to walk all over you so long as this influence lasts. You seek out relationships and friends who will arouse your emotions as well as your intellect, and you may be on the lookout for someone with whom you can have a passionate sexual relationship. This influence also makes existing sexual relationships more intense. You will have the energy to work very hard, but only on projects that affect you personally. There is some impulsiveness with this influence and a tendency to leap to conclusions.

5/28/06
Theme:Fair weather
There are wounds that do not heal with time. Instead they start hurting again given certain “weather conditions”. If this occurs, subconsciously we will withdraw into ourselves in interpersonal situations, or be oversensitive and react in a hurt manner without apparent reason – or we ourselves become particularly hurtful, without actually wanting to. However, if the weather is fair, as it is now, you have the opportunity to bring these painful things to light – preferably during a personal conversation with someone who is close to you. Looking into painful experiences in this way can make you freer in your behavior, your close relationships and your relation with your body. It can also prevent you from hurting others.

5/27/06
Theme:Misunderstandings
Weak, transient effect: Today during the day you are very sensitive emotionally, but the impressions you receive through your sensitivity may not be very accurate. You have vague feelings about the circumstances and people around you, and you may feel very confused, because you aren’t sure whether you are being realistic or unduly suspicious and fearful. Misunderstandings with others are very likely, because you tend to feel that others have unfairly criticized or hurt you, although they have done nothing of the sort. Or you may feel that someone dislikes you for the flimsiest reasons. The reason is that this influence activates your subconscious complexes, which take over your moods and perceptions. Instead of reacting to the reality of what you see, you react automatically to the subconscious process set off by what you see.

5/28/06
Theme:Mental or emotional?
This influence can have a variety of effects. First of all, it can stimulate your appreciation of beauty, your interest in art, music or poetry. It may also indicate that you will tell someone that you love her or that you will discuss your relationship with someone. This influence works primarily upon the mind rather than the feelings and is often expressed as an intellectual appreciation of beauty. However, to a considerable extent it also removes the distinctions between mental and emotional. You may experience concepts with great emotional feeling or express emotions in an intellectual manner. The area in which feeling and intellect can best be synthesized is in the arts. Thus you are much more receptive than usual to experiences through art.

!** Kyle Busch, born 2 May 1985
5/27/06
Theme: Seeing clearly
This influence confers patience and willingness to do difficult and exacting work. Therefore, this is a good time to do any work that you have to keep on plugging at, even though it isn’t rewarding. If this influence comes during a period that is otherwise difficult, it guarantees that for the moment at least you will be able to cope with your situation, no matter how difficult it becomes. Intellectual or physical work that requires perseverance and great attention to detail is favored by this influence. Also, this influence will help you get to know yourself better. The close attention to detail that characterizes your way of seeing now will help you see yourself and your own reactions very clearly.

5/28/06
Theme:Making friends

You feel good today and affectionate toward just about everyone around you. You should spend time with friends and even try to make new ones, if the opportunity arises. Think about your relationships and appreciate exactly how much love you give to and receive from others. If there are tensions in any of your relationships, this is a good time to work at smoothing them over. Probably you will be quite popular today, and you should use the positive energies you are putting out to make a good impression on the people you want to impress. However, don’t be phony about it, because you will not be very effective in the long run. The point is that the good impression you make will be because of the person you actually are, not the person you think others want you to be.

!! Jeff Gordon, born 4 August 1971
5/28/06
Theme: Advancing that notion
This is an excellent time for taking some action that depends on impressing someone with your ability and confidence. For example, it is a good time to ask for a raise, because you communicate positively and with confidence, which others will respect. Even if you don’t choose to assert yourself, you will defend yourself and your views to anyone who criticizes you or tries to tear you down. The plans you make today will be much bolder and more innovative than usual. You are able to dare more and to take greater chances, not only with your words but also with your thoughts. Use this time to advance a notion that you have previously been shy about. In any kind of negotiations you will get right to the heart of the matter and settle it very quickly.
** Dale Earnhardt Jr., born 10 October 1974
5/27/06
Theme:A break from the norm
For the duration of the day you may be driven to look for exciting and stimulating activities and experiences. The ordinary experiences within relationships will not satisfy you. Unresolved tensions in a love relationship may cause sudden upsets as one of you seeks freedom from the restrictions and tensions. Another person may provide the occasion for a flirtation that unsettles your relationship. However, unless the tensions are severe, it is unlikely that you will suffer any permanent damage. Whatever you do today for fun will be intended to provide a break from the norm. Therefore, look for something exciting, meet new people and have new adventures. These will be upsetting only if you are afraid of and resistant to new experiences.

5/28/06
***Theme:Surreptitious acts
This may be a day of considerable confusion and uncertainty. On the other hand, you may gain new awareness of and sensitivity to others and their needs and how they relate to your own. Your encounters with others today may be demoralizing or confusing. Your ego energies are not very high, and you are not in a self- assertive mood for vigorous competition. If someone comes at you aggressively, your natural inclination today is to avoid the confrontation. You might withdraw, or pretend to agree with the person just to avoid a contest. You are afraid that asserting yourself might accomplish nothing, and this fear may tempt you to act surreptitiously rather than out in the open. Avoid doing that, however, because it will demoralize you further.

** ##Robby Gordon, born 2 January 1969
5/27/06
Theme: Under the carpet
This influence is normally quite easy, indicating a day of light and pleasant thoughts and social interaction. You will avoid serious topics of conversation or any that might produce conflicts. This is not a good day to negotiate any difficult or contentious matters, because you are more concerned with keeping peace than with making a favorable arrangement. Real problems that you might sweep under the carpet now can emerge and cause trouble later. Since other difficult influences coincide with this one, it can indicate disputes and arguments with loved ones.

5/28/06
*** Theme: Emotional attitudes
Weak, transient effect: 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.

!! Kasey Kahne, born 10 April 1980
5/27/06
Theme: Creative self-expression
The central issue today is self- expression through creativity and relationships. You will be assertive, but only in order to gain the attention of those whom you love or would like to love. You want people to pay attention to you, and you are willing to give love and attention in return. This is a good time to get out and socialize, to make new contacts and friendships. You will attract people today, because you put so much personal energy into being warm and friendly, and others are bound to respond to you. If you feel like having a party, this is a good day for it. This is usually a favorable influence for all kinds of financial activities, but you should be careful not to be extravagant or self-indulgent. You could easily fritter your money away on impulse purchases that don’t really mean that much to you.

5/28/06
Theme: Handling the trivia
This is a good time for communicating with people, writing letters or planning a course of action in your career or your home and personal life. You are inclined to spend a lot of time thinking under this influence, and others may see you as being all thought and no action. However, this is the time for plans, not for action. Your mind should be very clear today, and you should be in touch with your feelings and emotions to an unusual extent, even about aspects of yourself that you normally keep hidden because you cannot express them clearly. Therefore, the plans you make today are more in keeping with your real inner desires than usual. In your job this is a good time to clear away paperwork and handle the more trivial aspects of your work, because you can pay very close attention to details.

!! Jamie McMurray, born 3 June 1976
5/27/06
Theme: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.

5/28/06
Theme: Just having fun
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.

Kevin Harvick, born 8 December 1975
*** 5/27/06
Theme: Turbulence and difficulty
Usually this influence increases the flow of communication and ideas between yourself and other people. However, it can also indicate serious ego conflicts and conflicts of will expressed verbally or through other means of communications. If you are not careful how you use your resources, you will encounter turbulence and difficulty. You may feel that you have an urgent message to deliver today, and you may find it difficult to wait for the chance to express yourself. When you have said what you wanted to say, others may be strongly opposed to it. A compromise may be necessary, but it will not be easy to bring about except by introducing a third party into the discussion. Just be careful that the third party is really neutral and that both you and your opponent are convinced of that.

5/28/06
!! Theme:Personal desires
This is a time for making plans about your personal life and for thinking about your goals and objectives, not in terms of your career but in terms of your inner feelings and personal desires. Often the demands of the outside world become so great that we lose track of what we really want in life and spend our time trying to live up to someone else’s expectations. Even worse, we internalize those expectations and convince ourselves that they are our own. Now is a good time to cut through all of those ideas within yourself and to think about what you want and about yourself as you really are. On a more external level, this is also a good time to make plans concerning your household and family or the physical dwelling that you live in. Also, buying or looking for real estate is favored during this time.

!! Denny Hamlin, born 18 November 1980
5/27/06
Theme:Personal growth
This will be a time of new activities and new encounters, some quite unexpected, that will generate both excitement and personal growth. You are not satisfied with your daily routine under this influence, which signifies a time when you can break away from the routine and introduce into your life fresh elements that will keep you alive psychologically. As a consequence of all this, you can do quite extraordinary things under this influence. In whatever you do, you will have the chance to show off aspects of yourself that others may not have known you had. You may not have known about them yourself. Consequently this is a time of personal growth and self-discovery that can be quite significant in your psychological development, as well as being positively exciting and interesting.

5/28/06
Theme:Decisive action
During this time you feel vigorous and willing to work. At the same time, your self-confidence is unusually strong. You feel no need to struggle against others, because you know your normal energies will carry you through any situation. And since you are able to work from such a calm position, your work is more effective and more competent than usual. You do not feel violently competitive, but if someone offers a challenge, you won’t back down. Therefore this is a good time for all types of athletics. You will enjoy the contest, but you will not feel driven to win at all costs. The game will seem satisfactory by itself. And you will carry this viewpoint over into all the activities you become involved in at this time. This is a favorable time for situations that require decisive action.

Michael Waltrip, born 30 April 1963
5/27/06
Theme:Attention, Children!
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.

5/28/06

Theme: Magnanimity ***Major Aspect ~ Life change
Valid during many months: This is usually a very favorable influence. It gives your emotions a great deal of power, so that you feel them much more emphatically and are more in touch with them. At the same time you want to establish empathetic relationships with others, to hear their problems, to help out and play a protective role toward them if possible. This influence may make you feel very sentimental about and attached to your surroundings and to familiar objects. Your past is very important to you now, and if there are events in your past that you find uncomfortable, they are likely to come up. There is often a need to confront the unconscious areas of the psyche during this time, but you should regard this as an opportunity to be healed of the wounds made by these energies from the past.
In emotional relationships, this influence can create a tension between your desire to be close to someone and the desire to free. Be careful to give your loved ones the same freedom that you want, and do not try to be unfairly possessive of them. Also, confrontations with the unconscious aspects of yourself mentioned above can affect relationships adversely during this time. In such cases it is necessary to cultivate a sense of detachment and not become so wrapped up in your emotions that you cannot see beyond them.
This influence gives an enormous concern with social and individual justice. You are easily outraged when you see someone getting the short end of the stick, but your emotionalism may make it difficult to see a good solution to the problem. Try to avoid feeling self-righteous and intolerant. You will need to have a very open and generous point of view in order to clear up any conflicts that occur at this time, and emotionalism masquerading as righteousness will not accomplish anything useful. Instead, take advantage of the ample positive side of this energy by helping those who need it. Protect the people you can protect and succor those who have been hurt. Magnanimity is just as much in accordance with the meaning of this influence as are extreme emotionalism and self- righteousness.

! Kyle Petty, born 2 June 1960
5/28/06
Theme: A pleasant day
This day is good for arranging and participating in social get- togethers. Spend time with friends and enjoy yourself. You probably won’t want to talk about anything serious, because this is a light-hearted influence. Nevertheless, it is a good time for talking to loved ones and making it clear how you feel about them. Even if there are tensions within your relationships, this influence should enable you to discuss them, straighten them out and leave nothing behind but good feelings. If you do not have any work that has to be done, this is a good time for attending a concert, art exhibit or other intellectually stimulating activity. Or you might take a trip and spend the day in pleasant surroundings away from home. Whatever you do, this should be a light, pleasant day.

** ## Bobby Labonte, born 8 May 1964
5/27/06
Theme:Expect the unexpected
This can be a somewhat disruptive influence, during which you are subject to sudden upsets or to behavior that is upsetting to others. Under this influence it is quite likely that you will not follow your normal routine as on other days. There could be an automobile breaking down unexpectedly, a sudden argument or an unexpected separation from someone. The point is that you can expect the unexpected today. You are striving to break down your everyday routine, and it would be best to find ways of doing this intentionally, rather than waiting for it to happen. Let the restless spirit within you express itself. You need new air! You may very well discover a valuable aspect of yourself that you never knew existed, because you were afraid to let it come out.

5/28/06
Theme: Flog to death or accept
This influence gives you the chance, with positive support from the quality of time, to start to look into, or to delve deeper into, those areas of knowledge which try to give practical answers to human problems. These include not only all forms of healing, but also psychology and astrology as well as areas such as sociology and education. This is a good time to go deeper into the theoretical, philosophical fundamentals of your subject. The danger of this influence lies in the intellectualization and “flogging to death” of experiences and situations which actually call for feeling or sympathy. On the wholly personal level, to do with you or someone close to you, such an approach hinders a compassionate understanding and effective acceptance of psychological realities.

** Casey Mears, born 12 March 1978
5/27/06
Theme: Easy company
Valid during several weeks: This is one of the best of all influences for group activities or activities with friends. You will feel friendly toward almost everyone, and they will be friendly in return. It is a good time to have friends in for a party or to go out with a group of friends for a good time. You will enjoy each other’s company immensely and be much more loving and affectionate with each other. This benefit is not limited to activities with friends. Any situation in which you deal with many people in a group setting, for example a business conference or organizational meeting, is favored by this influence. Your ego energies are low enough so that you can deal agreeably with others, making whatever compromises are necessary without feeling that you are losing something personal that you should defend.

5/28/06
Theme: Slightly out of focus
This is a very poor day for doing any work that requires disciplined thinking and precision. The world looks like an impressionist painting today, slightly out of focus and emphasizing large patterns of color and shadow. Work with numbers of strict logic will be especially affected. If you do this kind of work today, check it over for errors in a couple of days. Almost certainly there will be some mistakes. Communications today will be especially difficult. Even when you and another person are trying to be very clear, you may have misunderstandings. This is a poor influence for any important discussions about business or personal matters. Even if you are sure that you are speaking clearly and honestly, make sure that others are treating you the same way.

!!! Jeff Burton, born 29 June 1967
5/27/06
Theme:Equilibrium
This is a time of psychological and emotional equilibrium, when the different aspects of your personality are in tune with each other. You can face your daily life with less effort than usual, which is bound to have some consequences in your material universe as well. Relations with friends and close neighbors will be very harmonious, and you may make some new friends. People will be at ease with you today because you are at ease with yourself. The routine discussions, negotiations and transactions of everyday existence will offer no obstacles. This is an especially good time to think about your personal and emotional life. Strains in that area can be corrected now, because you are relatively at peace with yourself and with others, and communications about personal matters should be easy.

5/28/06
Theme:Half-cocked
Today your attention will be focused on your work, profession or important social duties that you must exercise. You have an opportunity to plan for the future in these areas of your life, and you will discuss with others your proper course of action. On the psychological level, this is a good time for being alone to reflect upon your long-range plans and how well you are fulfilling them. The Midheaven is strongly connected with the ego structure, and Mercury transiting it may indicate that you are dwelling upon your basic ego needs. This is especially important if by nature you are a meditative person, who wants to plan everything out before acting. A more extroverted person will go right out and talk to the world, even though that may mean going off half-cocked.

** Scott Riggs, born 1 January 1971
5/27/06
Theme:Emotional depth
During this period your communications with others are likely to be very subjective, colored by personal considerations and not always factually accurate. On the other hand, your usually casual conversations with others have an emotional depth that can make these discussions very important now. You are not satisfied with the superficial face that other people show you, nor are you likely to show them a shallow side of yourself. So if you can keep conscious control of your emotions and not lose your objectivity, this can be a time of really meaningful communications. Female relatives may play an important role in your life at this time, and one of them may conceivably be able to teach you something about yourself.

5/28/06
Theme: A frantic pace
Valid during several days: During this time, you will have many group discussions and conversations with others; you will meet new people, possibly travel quite a bit and certainly have more contact with relatives and immediate neighbors.You feel that you have to communicate with as many people as possible. This is a very good time for all kinds of intellectual activities. It is not a good time to try to settle down and relax. The tempo of events in your environment is likely to be too fast, and it will be difficult to avoid getting caught up in it. Nevertheless you should try sometimes to disconnect yourself from this frantic pace, because it may get to the point that you are continually distracted and unable to think properly. For this reason it is not the best time to try to reach a conclusion on some matter.

So there you go…As Above…So Below.
It promises as always to be a great race. (yes… I think there will be a big one. Remember to say a little extra prayer.)

I will be back on Monday or Tuesday as we are taking off… for the Eagle Cap/Wallowa Mountains of Oregon.

Have a great and safe
holiday.

Remember to Remember what Memorial Day is all about.

Ouch!!!! Elliot hit his head.

…Sure hope he’s ok…Elliott!! Check your ‘scope before you go jumping off stages.
Today during the day there is a real danger of needless disputes, irritability, emotionalism, rash action and hastiness, which may result in harm or inconvenience later. You will find it difficult to handle other people for awhile. One of the challenges now is to successfully let off steam without making an unnecessary shambles. If you frequently feel somewhat discouraged about yourself, you should be especially careful with this influence. You may see everything that comes your way as a threat and react much too defensively. If you have a bolder and more self-confident temperament, you may be inclined to act too quickly, to be hasty and overcritical of others. Or you may be accident prone. With this influence, you are not as careful as you should be, and you might hurt yourself.

On Being Careful…
Moon Sextile Saturn
exact at 21:33
activity period from 28 May 2006 to 29 May 2006.
Weak, transient effect: Tonight you may feel like being alone with your thoughts and feelings. Your mood is not usually bad or depressed, you simply desire to be calm and reflective. But you are probably not in the mood for frivolity. You prefer the company of serious people, if any, and you want the conversation to be about important topics. Under this influence you may feel the need to consult someone whose higher vantage point you respect. You are able to balance your emotional needs with your sense of duty and obligation. While you are aware of your feelings, you do not let them overwhelm you. In all proceedings you are thrifty and careful. You are also very careful and thorough in your approach to any kind of work now. It is not likely that you will have to do any task over, nor will anyone else have to clean up after you.

Moon Trine Ascendant
exact at 02:40
activity period from 27 May 2006 to 28 May 2006.
Weak, transient effect: 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.

Moon Sextile Saturn
exact at 21:33
activity period from 28 May 2006 to 29 May 2006.
Theme: Small embarrassments

During this time your feelings make themselves more noticeable than usual – even small embarrassments become extremely uncomfortable. Therefore, if you should make any mistake today, you should not immediately accuse yourself for it, as it is probably not as serious as it seems. This sensitivity, though, also gives you a good feel for the weaknesses and sensibilities of others, so that you can be very tactful and accommodating about them. In this way you encourage others to be open and also admit to their sore points. Your capacity for understanding and your readiness to take due account of personal traits, offers others – for example children – enough security to trust you.

Sun Opposition Med.Coeli
activity period from 28 May 2006 to 30 May 2006.
Today you should attend to domestic affairs, your personal life, and family matters. Also it is a good day to withdraw into yourself and think things over. There are times when nothing is more important than getting in touch with yourself and your personal work. Demoralizing ego defeats are quite likely with this influence, if you concern yourself with matters that are not related to your real, inner needs and concerns. That is why it is so important for you to be alone or with your closest loved ones in your personal world. This is the only way to determine what your real needs are and how you should satisfy them. Within your personal sphere you can have very satisfying experiences today.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Moon in the 5th House
exact at 18:05
activity period from 28 May 2006 to 30 May 2006.
You need to be yourself now and to feel what you really are. In your relations with others, you will project much more emotionally than usual, and if some people do not like this side of you it may be necessary to reconsider your friendship with them. In love relationships, you will experience greater emotional depth than usual, and consequently your experience with a lover will be much more intense. The only danger to watch out for here is that you may be too possessive of the other person. Also you may be so wrapped up in your own feelings that you are unaware of the other’s feelings. Relations with women in general are improved by this influence. Regardless of your own sex, your experiences with them will very likely show you a great deal about yourself in a positive way.

Remember this is all balanced out by Ryan’s more intense long term aspects:

Uranus Trine Uranus
activity period from middle of April 2006 until end of December 2007.
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.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jupiter Square Mars
activity period from middle of December 2005 until end of August 2006.
Theme: Insight and skill
***Valid during many months: This influence gives you a great deal of confidence and makes you feel very self-assertive. Usually this is all right, but some people will express this energy by becoming arrogant and domineering. Also be wary of overconfidence, resulting in attempts to do things that are simply beyond you.
Intemperance in almost any activity could completely undo the basically positive nature of this influence. Avoid exaggeration and try to maintain some sense of proportion. If you can do all of this, you will be able to get more work done than usual, and you will do it well. You will be able to accomplish things that you are usually afraid to tackle because you feel inadequate, and you can take the initiative when you would otherwise wait for others to take the lead.
With care and planning and adequate restraint, this influence is a general sign of fortunately timed action that takes advantage of the proper moment and makes the most of it. And this is not luck on your part, but insight and skill. All of this requires preparation, however, because impulsive actions at this time are not likely to be very effective.
It may be particularly important to placate persons in authority over you. If you act precipitately, they may become alarmed and think of you as a threat, whether or not you intend to be. Of course, if you do consciously intend to be a threat, this influence could be a help, assuming again that you have planned carefully. But if you are not conscious of your intentions, you may experience opposition from your superiors without ever quite understanding why. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Saturn Trine Venus
activity period from end of August 2005 until 29 May 2006.
Valid during many months: This is an excellent time for you to achieve real stability in your relationships. Your individual personal needs will not conflict with the demands of the relationship, and you can base them on a realistic understanding of who you are and what others need from you. Your vision is clear, and you are not likely to enter a relationship under the spell of romantic illusions. If you are romantically inclined, in fact, your relationships may seem rather practical and dull now. However, you can use this kind of experience. A relationship should be an encounter between yourself and another individual that helps you define and understand yourself more clearly. That can happen now.
Sometime in the last few years many relationships that were inappropriate for your life were weeded out. That process may have been quite painful, but it was necessary at the time. Now, however, the only relationships left are those that have real value in your life. You should be working on them to improve your understanding of yourself and how you relate to others. This is a time for growth relationships that expand your awareness. For this reason, you may have a relationship in which there is a considerable age difference between you and your partner. The one who is “older and wiser” may act as a guide, exposing the other, through the dynamics of the relationship, to a larger and more realistic view of the world.
Also this influence favors most business and professional relationships, because you now are able to negotiate on the basis of your real needs and self- understanding while appreciating the other person’s real needs. And since you understand the need for realism in relationships, whatever you decide on at this time will be mutually profitable.
Creativity under this influence is not stimulated or checked, but it does have greater discipline and rigor. You may be attracted to difficult and exacting techniques or involved in particularly painstaking craft forms. Anything that you make now is likely to be practical or useful.

Taylor Hicks WINS American Idol!!


And Simon didn’t want him to go through….JEESH!!
Right on! Congratulations to Taylor Hicks for winning American Idol.
In all American Idols history, (yes… My name is Clance’ and I am an American Idol addict.)
** I even managed to hook the #1 #88 fan on it. Or he was hooked on looking at the girls, anyway. Katherine and Kelly specifically. He was droolin’ all over tonite.

I have
watched every year. There has never been a more unique and talented contestant. The NEW Michael McDonald/Joe Cocker/Lou Rawls… etc…etc…all rolled up into one.
Taylor’s versions of “In the Ghetto” and “Do I make you sniff…snniiifff… Cry/Proud?” truly have made me cry each time I have heard him.I loved Taylor’s version of Levon as much as I loved Elton John’s. Maybe more. You can see it here.
He is far from the “top 40 everything sounds the same to me.” His unique style mixes a bit from the past, with his own Self. He resounds with a vibration that gives me goosebumps, chills and evoke my emotions in every range possible. Yes, I am a Soul Patrol Convert. I now bless him with the Title of The Official Church of the Great Oval “Singin’ Spaz”. He fits right in in my book. He is from Alabama even…I’ve no idea if he is a NASCAR fan or not. It doesn’t matter to me.
…I loved his voice and spazzy style from the first tryout he had. I will rush to buy his first CD the second it’s released. Yes…I would even be willing to pay a lot for a ticket to see him in concert. He is that good.
After looking at the horoscopes for both Taylor and Katherine…they are both destined for big things. Katherine has a different much higher spiritual call tho… I was actually a little stunned when I went into it. I will be going into it a lot deeper and posting it somewhere in the future…her aspects regarding her destiny are profound. Congrats to her to for getting so far. But that Kat is destined for a much higher call than American Idol. She handled herself with the grace and dignity of the beauty she is.
Now I have to admit that Ace wasn’t to hard on the eyes. The ears sometimes…but Oh! that I was young again…or Paula Abdul. I have often wondered if she kidnapped him after he was voted off, held him hostage…only agreeing to let him free if he agreed to be her pet for awhile. (yeah… yeah…shame on me.)

Clay Aikens new look blew me away. Very trendy…kinda retro British. Quite handsome I must say. It was a pretty cool surprise for his “clone” for him to show up. Wow. He’s a different guy from when we first saw him. Way to go Clay. Hold your head up. Your GREAT!

I will buy Elliot Yamin’s first cd too. What a guy. How far will he go? Pretty far I think. He’s a crooner.
This was the best season yet…now what will I do on Tuesday and Wednesday nights? Oh yeah…. NASCAR.
Fox should run American Idol during NASCAR down time.

Heard any other good rumors lately besides ummmm…never mind.
**and in answer to your question Miss Bab’s…no…not every race. Just every Championship.

In answer to the Conservative blog comment semi-spammer: I am pretty good at getting rid of pests…Thanks anyway. God bless your Soul.

Closing thought of the evening…

In the name of Tony Stewart…

Taylor Hicks…

and Jesus…


Amen.

Taylor Hicks and Katherine McPhee Astro-Predictions and Horoscope for Final Outcome of American Idol


Taylor Hicks, born 6 October 1976
Theme: Due Diligence
With this influence you have a clear idea of what you are doing and where you are headed. You feel that you know who you are and are therefore confident that you can achieve your objectives. But with this influence also comes a knowledge of and mastery over the necessary material resources and techniques for achieving your ends. You need more than mere self-confidence to achieve anything, as you are well aware. So you will work diligently at whatever task you set yourself today, paying great attention to detail and making thorough use of all the material that will help you accomplish your task. You feel pride in knowing that you have done good work as well as in knowing that you have moved one step closer to your goals. Therefore you will also gain the respect of others today.

Katherine McPhee, born 25 March 1984
Theme: Truly Selfless
This influence will bring forth your innermost subconscious fantasies. Today during the day you may spend considerable time daydreaming and not accomplish very much, but you will probably feel that it has been worth it. Dreams can be very refreshing to the spirit. At times we all need to withdraw a bit from the real world and encounter our inner selves. Now you have great sympathy for others. You are able to put yourself in their place and know exactly how you would feel in such a situation. You want to help others, with little thought of any benefit to yourself. This is one of those influences that makes you truly selfless, not merely in appearance. You may work to help people whom you consider less fortunate than yourself. There is often a strong interest in psychic or spiritual subjects under this influence.
