Here are the pertinent driver’s horoscopes for Phoenix. All I can say, after looking at these ‘scopes is that it’s anybody game. Well, except maybe Biff’s, Stremme, and D.J.’s. There are some awesome positive aspects there for nearly all the driver’s. Take a close look at Jr.’s aspects. in light of what is happening in his life right now. Hmmmm….??
Jimmy Johnson, born 17 September 1975
Theme: Taking a stand
**Very likely you will have to convince someone of something today. This will probably not be an argument, but rather a situation in which you have to present your case with vigor and energy. But if someone tries to talk you into something, you will defend your own position vehemently and successfully. This influence is not as argumentative as it sounds. People will not see you as spoiling for a fight, nor will they be particularly likely to pick a fight.
Instead they will respect you for taking a stand on your own beliefs.
Your inner confidence in your ideas and beliefs will help you initiate and take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. Do not be reluctant to use them. Under this influence you should be successful.
Ryan Newman, born 8 December 1977
Theme: Getting involved
This influence favors love relationships and the formation of friendships. It indicates a balance in your life between self-assertion and the need to relate to others. In a sexual relationship this balance is manifested by your ability to give and receive equally.
This influence may bring about financial opportunities, particularly for investment in a new and unique venture. Your own individuality is best expressed by getting involved, financially or emotionally, in projects that are different and innovative.
Tony Stewart, born 20 May 1971
Theme: Something New
You want to take a larger view of life in order to see how the various parts fit together to make up the whole. Any new and interesting phenomenon from a world outside your own is likely to attract your attention at this time. Subjects relating to foreign places, the law, philosophy or higher knowledge of any kind will engage your attention. It is possible that you may have some dealings with officials connected with the law, although you should not fear this possibility particularly. It is a good time to travel, because your curiosity makes travel very interesting to you. You are also quite open to alternative lifestyles at this time. This influence is valid for several weeks.
Moon square Pluto brings on a tendency toward sudden urges today. Although this is a weak tranient effect, it is significant, as it also shows up in a couple of other drivers ‘scopes today.
This influence can have many different effects, some of which you should be quite careful of. To begin with, it encourages compulsive behavior; your emotions acquire so much momentum that it is difficult not to give in to sudden urges and impulses that may not be good for you in the long run, particularly if you have been trying to suppress your feelings. This influence is least difficult if you deal with your feelings honestly and do not try to hide them from yourself. On the plus side, however, this influence allows you to go inside yourself and find out what you really want in any situation. Emotional self-analysis is very effective now, as long as you are willing to be honest. Encounters with others may also force an emotional self-confrontation which is useful, even though possibly unpleasant.
Dale Jr.’s is a bit more complex…too complex to go with the short version.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., born 10 October 1974
Theme: Out of the woodwork
Mercury Opposition Mars ~ Under this influence you feel like telling everyone you encounter exactly what you think of them, whether or not it is flattering. You are likely to be in a combative mood, which may cause other people to start a fight.
Quite often this combativeness is well buried in your subconscious mind, and the only way you know it is there is because people seem to come out of the woodwork to start an argument. You may feel like the totally innocent victim of someone else’s aggressiveness, and it may appear that way to a neutral observer, but nevertheless you have been sending out hostile signals at a very subtle level. At this time it is better to be conscious of your feelings of aggression, hostility and resentment toward others than to try to ignore them. At least you will have some control over them.
Perhaps some Delays?
Mercury square Saturn in your ‘scope today is a good influence for heavy mental work and for tasks that require disciplined thinking. Your critical faculties are sharp and your standards are high. However, you won’t find it easy to communicate with others; either you will have difficulty being understood, or you will give a more negative impression than you intended. This is not a good time for important negotiations or business transactions because communications between you and the other parties will probably be delayed or misinterpreted. Also it will be difficult to make the right kind of positive impression in such a situation, so delay personal contact until another day. Today you are able to think very practically, but do not let this practicality turn into narrow-mindedness or a total lack of vision.
Venus sextile Moon brings a theme of taking it easy into your day.
Your emotions are softened by this influence. You will find it difficult to feel anger or resentment against anyone, particularly the people who are close to you emotionally or those whom you encounter in the course of everyday life. Toward friends you feel protective and nurturing, and you want to help them in any way you can. If you have to work with others, you are able to keep things running smoothly because of your sympathetic understanding of their feelings. If you have a choice, you should have people visit you today instead of going out, because the benevolent nature of this influence is best expressed at home. This is one of the finest influences under which to relax and take it easy, and probably you will not feel like working anyway.
Your Moon Square Med. Coeli has a weak, transient effect. Today during the day 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.
Greg Biffle, born 23 December 1969
I am not even going there. Don’t expect a good day for him.
Carl Edwards, born 15 August 1979
Theme: Sweet talk
Mercury trine Venus 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.
Matt Kenseth, born 10 March 1972
Theme: Enlarging your scope
Mars trine Ascendent affects a lot. In most areas of your life, you are able to act much more decisively than usual, especially in dealing with others. You know where you stand, and you ask others to let you know where they stand. And despite your self-assertiveness, you are able to create a balance in a group so that everyone benefits from working together and no one feels dissatisfied. Under this influence you will want to enlarge the scope of your activities somewhat. It will not be enough to express your energies as you have in the past. At this time you want to find new expressions, and you will look for people to share in this. For this reason you want to be with active people who have enough energy to go along with your plans. On the physical level, this is usually a period of good health.
Kurt Busch, born 4 August 1978
Sun trine Saturn signifies a great opportunity to know yourself through your relationship with and effect upon your environment. You are highly disciplined and able to channel all your energies toward any objective you wish to attain. There is a close relationship between who you are and what you do. So take this opportunity to examine your life and the structures you have built into it. Today you can organize and make an overall plan for the way you would like to order your affairs and then arrange them accordingly. Because you work very thoroughly and meticulously under this influence, your efforts will achieve lasting results. This is also a good time to undertake any intellectual discipline or technique that requires concentration and attention to detail.
Dale Jarrett, born 26 November 1956
Sun Opposition Neptuneisn’t the best aspect to be influencing you today. You can however make it positive if you are aware of it and chooose it to be different. 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.
Elliot Sadler, born 30 April 1975
Venus Opposition Neptune shows up as a 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.
Kyle Busch, born 2 May 1985
Venus Sextile Ascendant brings on a tone of being the life of the party
This is a very lighthearted time, when you should be able to relax and enjoy yourself with friends and loved ones. You will enjoy being with groups of people, and you will wish to express your feelings of affection. Your favor will extend even to the point that you want to share it with everyone. This is also a good time to go out and meet people. You will not have the fear and shyness that may sometimes make it difficult for you to encounter new people, nor will you need to worry about making bad impressions on anyone.This influence helps to ensure you will make a favorable impression upon everyone. If you usually enjoy being the life of the party, you will certainly have the chance to play this role now.
Martin Truex JR, born 29 June 1980
Mercury opposition Pluto means that you could possibly get caught in some kind of power play on race day. This is a good day for getting to the bottom of any problem, either in a relationship or in some other encounter between you and another person. Or you may become involved in an intellectual conflict of wills with another person. Someone may try very hard today to convince you of some truth that you would rather not accept, or you may do this to someone else. It can go either way. Be very careful about these attempts to persuade, because they can become the basis of a very subversive, smoldering conflict between you. It may be hard to bring such a conflict out into the open where the two of you can air your grievances. And it may be that there aren’t any real grievances at all, but that one of you is trying to pull off a naked power play.
Robby Gordon, born 2 January 1969
Mercury conjunction Saturnplaces a focus on precision. During this period you are likely to proceed with considerable caution, which has both good and difficult effects. You are much more concious than usual of the distinctions between things, making it hard to see the “forest for the trees.” This extends to your attitudes toward others, so that you may be inclined to concentrate on people’s negative characteristics and to overlook their positive traits. On the positive side, this influence can give you great intellectual precision. If you have to do any work that requires extreme precision of thought and planning, now is the time. It will work especially well if you have previously outlined the general plan and left the detailed planning until now.
Kasey Kahne, born 10 April 1980
Mercury Conjunction Med.Coelimeans that 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.
Jamie McMurray, born 3 June 1976
Here is thatMoon trine Uranus aspect again that we see in both Tony and Jr.’s chart. Tonight you are likely to crave emotional excitement, something that departs from the routine of your daily life. You are likely to seek out people who are different from those you usually meet. You might spend the day or evening in very different surroundings. And while you may feel a bit impulsive, these impulses make you feel more alive rather than inclined to act rashly or stupidly. On a more quiet level, you may use this energy to make needed changes in your immediate personal life or your domestic environment. While others may seem startled by your apparently sudden moves, these changes should be constructive, and the people in your life will accept them. If you have to deal with groups of people or with the general public, you will advocate change and new policies.
Kevin Harvick, born 8 December 1975
Kevo’s scope is good. Very,very good. Better than anyone else’s. Way better. Happy could be very happy. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.
Denny Hamlin, born 18 November 1980
Chiron Square Chironactive in your chart from March of 2007 until Nov.2008 can signify a period bad luckunless you are very aware of your own inner workings and outide influences in your enviroment. Under this influence you could cause yourself considerable harm by making strenuous attempts to overcompensate for your weaknesses ~ for example by overdoing things or taking on tasks for which you are not yet ready. Demanding far too much of yourself is likely to lead to some kind of failure or disgrace, which will only serve to reopen old wounds. Less dramatic effects are also possible which nevertheless have the same root causes. You could, for example, feel that you are often your own worst enemy when dealing with others. Trying to appear strong when you actually feel weak could lead you into unpleasant situations.
You will find it easiest to cope with this influence if you can admit that, unlike baron Münchhausen, you are unable to pull yourself out of the swamp by your own hair. No heroic feat of strength can undo old wounds. If you can recognize this you will be able to avoid the more unpleasant side-effects of this influence, but also to realize where bypassing old pain might have caused you to skip important stages in your personal development. Try to accept these uncomfortable feelings without overreacting. This influence will help you to find ways of healing old wounds connected to the physical and instinctive sides of your nature, or at very least how you can better integrate them into your life.
Thank goodness that there are many other aspects in your chart every day to balance this out and make things easier in your life.. This is an Aspect we all go through in our lives. It is the door that opens into new and greater doors. I will predict right now that Denny may take the championship in 2009.
Casey Mears, born 12 March 1978
Moon Sextile Chiron is in Jr.’s chart also and is the main theme for yours. 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.
Juan Pablo Montoya, born 20 September 1975
Sun Opposition Uranus brings with it, a sense of restlessness.All one-to-one encounters and close intimate relationships will be occasions for surprising events today. Exactly what will happen is hard to say, except that it will be quite different from the norm, whatever your norm may be. For example, in a close relationship as with your partner, one or the other partner may be extremely restless. In this case, there is something in the relationship that one of you is impatient with and unwilling to put up with. This feeling may lead to an argument. Or perhaps one of you will do something radically different and startling that will disrupt the relationship or force you to encounter a new aspect of it. In a business or professional partnership, you may have to make a radical revision because of some unexpected factor.
Moon Square Moon can provide some moments of difficulty and irritation. Your emotions are discordant, and you may be more inclined to get into disagreements with others. This will probably have the greatest effect in your most personal life and domestic situation. Consequently you should watch out for unnecessary conflicts with loved ones. In a group, you will not feel that your interests are in accord with the others’ interests. It is not a good time to work with people or to make any kind of public appearance, if peace and harmony is your goal. However, if you are trying to stir people up about some issue or call their attention to circumstances that must be dealt with, this influence can be quite helpful, although the others may not appreciate your role in this.
Hmmmm….this will be an interesting race. Will someone be eating CORN?Tally Ho LugnutZ! Off to the dezert we go.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the race. Dale and I are taking off for the Canyon mine in OR and will be back to finish the move on Sunday. We heard today that the river is rising and we need to get up there with some equipment while we can still cross with the truck. For the short time that the river is really high, we can access it with the cable car, and 4 wheelers. (*FYI ~ Where we go is less than two hours on the free way from our home in ID. The last few miles take a half an hour in itself, because of the remoteness, and slow, curvy gravel roads with occasional boulders in the way. It’s not like we are driving hundreds and miles:)) We still have a load of equipment and parts that we need to get up there.
Later Gators. See ya Sunday sometime!
