NASCAR Astro-Predictions ~ Loudon 2008

Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth and Greg Biffle, and Denny Hamlin have great stuff going on this weekend. Kyle Busch does also, however he does have a couple aspect’s that will tend to test him. Depending on how he handles it, will be the outcome.

Juan Pablo Montoya has his own thing going on.   Look for some mechanical problems.

Tony Stewart’s scope called for a post of it’s own.  Read it here.

Jimmie Johnson, Ryan Newman, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, and Bobby Labonte all have a challenging weekend ahead of them.
Kevin Harvick’s scope sucks so bad I am not even going to post it.

Here are the other pertinent driver’s scope’s for Loudon. There are many discordant energies abounding, which should make for a great race. Most of these aspect’s are in effect today and tomorrow.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., born 10 October 1974
Moon Square Moon
This influence, although not long lasting, 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.

Jimmie Johnson, born 17 September 1975
Moon Trine Sun
Today during the day you feel very much in harmony with yourself and able to do whatever you have to do single- mindedly. Your energies flow withless resistance, and life seems to be easier now. As a consequence, you can relate to people more easily, for others perceive your inward harmony and are drawn to you because of it. Obviously this is a good time for any kind of group activity. You are able to relate your own interests to the interests of any group you are working with, so that everyone will gain from what you do. Relations with women are also improved for the same reasons. A marriage or intimate relationship will be especially harmonious now, for this is a time of real understanding. On the physical level this harmony is expressed as a feeling of vitality, even if you may not feel driven to accomplish a great deal of work.

Sun Square Pluto
Then again with this aspect, you may have to encounter and even oppose powerful pressures and forces exerted upon you, both from without and from within. The way you live and exert your energies will be tested today, perhaps forcing you to make radical changes in the areas of your life that you find are not working very well. The best way to use this influence is to let go of old patterns of behavior that today’s events demonstrate to be invalid. Holding on to them will only make your life more difficult, and if you give them up, you will have room for the positive creative changes that can take place now. Also you may have to contend with the breakdown of machines or situations. Anything that tends not to function very smoothly will work very poorly today. It is time to straighten out the situation or fix up the mechanical problem.

Moon Square Moon
This influence, although not long lasting, 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.

Ryan Newman, born 8 December 1977
Moon in the 3rd House brings a period in which 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.

Venus Trine Uranus
This is a good day for doing something different. You are probably bored with the daily routine and would like to do something that provides a stimulating, unusual change of pace.

Mercury Trine Pluto an aspect that has been in effect in your life for several months, ends on the 29th. This influence signifies a concern with the very deep issues in life. Today you are interested in what goes on underneath the surface of events and phenomena, and you are willing to dig until you find out. This energy can also turn inward, which is often very profitable. It may be beneficial to be alone so that others cannot distract you from your inward search. For this reason you are likely to be attracted to subjects that reveal the inner dimensions of the psyche, such as psychology or astrology. You may encounter someone today whose ideas have a great effect upon your mind. This is a good time for learning something new, because you can allow your beliefs to be transformed by what you learn. Also you will tend to have a strong effect on other people’s thinking today.

Race day brings Moon Square Mars into focus, an aspect you share with several other driver’s. Tonight 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.
Carl Edwards, born 15 August 1979
Moon in the 7th House
During this time you turn your attention to your most personal relationships, in which you express yourself in a much more emotional manner than usual. This influence will affect any interpersonal situation, relationships with opponents, or any other inherently emotional confrontation. You may act unconsciously or automatically. Be careful. This morning 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.

Kurt Busch, born 4 August 1978
Moon Opposition Uranus
On race day, you will have to be quite careful, because you are emotionally excitable and impulsive. In your contacts with others you will seek excitement and stimulation, and thus you may attract people who are quite different from your usual crowd. You may act disruptively in your current relationships. It is not exactly that you are trying to start a fight, but in talking with someone you may stir up feelings that cause a fight to begin unintentionally. Consequently this can be a stormy period in relationships. If anyone tries to restrict you, your reaction will be very negative, even if the restrictions are in your best interests.

Kyle Busch, born 2 May 1985
Moon Opposition Pluto
This morning you can expect intense encounters with others, chiefly those with whom you are very emotionally involved. The deepest and most powerful sources within your subconscious mind are influencing your actions now, and often it is difficult to avoid acting impulsively. Guilt, jealousy, overpossessiveness or simply the desire to control another’semotions can take possession of you, or you may experience these feelings through someone else. You can be sure that any conflicts between you and another person will reveal a great deal about the inner workings of you both. If you can view such conflicts dispassionately and in a calmer light later on, you may derive some benefit from this influence. Otherwise, these encounters are likely to be fruitless and irritating.

Moon in the 10th House
This influence brings professional and business concerns into focus, but in a way that will test you. Your most intimate and personal life is on public display more than usual now, and you may find it difficult to hide certain facts about yourself. Obviously you are best off if you have nothing to hide. Even if you usually have reservations about emotional display in public, you are likely to indulge in such displays now. For example, you might have a public argument with a loved one or partner, or you might have a public outburst of good emotions. Perhaps you will want to help someone whom you know through your job and make the relationship something more than professional. But if it is to your disadvantage to blur the distinction between business and personal relationships, be careful, because you will tend to do this.

Kasey Kahne, born 10 April 1980
Moon Square Ascendant
Today during the day your emotions are strong when dealing with others, which can be either good or bad, depending on how you handle it. On the plus side, it gives you a great deal of sensitivity toward others. You can feel their moods immediately and respond to them so that you are able to fit into any group you are with. You value emotional contacts now, and you project feeling, warmth and concern to others. But on the negative side, this influence can also signify that you are so wrapped up in your moods that you can’t get out of yourself and relate to anyone else. In either case your moods are likely to fluctuate rather rapidly, so do not take your emotions too seriously at this time. You should make an effort to be with others, because forcing yourself to relate will bring out the better side of this influence.

There you go. The moon is once again Void of Course. So on top of this, you have a theme of “Anything Goes!” for this weekend.

Enjoy the race!

Tally Ho LugNutz!

NASCAR 2008 Astro-Predictions ~ Loudon ~ Tony Stewart

Tony has some serious aspect’s going on in this weekends ‘scope. Note the synchronicity to the media stories.  Tony’s ‘scope is pertinent enough to warrant a post in itself.

Tony Stewart, born 20 May 1971

Moon in the 10th House
This influence brings professional and business concerns into focus, but in a way that will test you. Your most intimate and personal life is on public display more than usual now, and you may find it difficult to hide certain facts about yourself. Obviously you are best off if you have nothing to hide. Even if you usually have reservations about emotional display in public, you are likely to indulge in such displays now. For example, you might have a public argument with a loved one or partner, or you might have a public outburst of good emotions. Perhaps you will want to help someone whom you know through your job and make the relationship something more than professional. But if it is to your disadvantage to blur the distinction between business and personal relationships, be careful, because you will tend to do this.

Sun Square Moon
This can be a rather tense time, but it also has the potential for much stimulation. If you have been bottling up pressures from your job, your home, your family or any other sources, they will become very difficult to bear now, especially if you have not been willing to face them in the recent past. Your conscious actions may be impulsive and ill-thought– out today, as your emotions come into conflict with your conscious will. When this happens, you should try to find out whether you have been avoiding a problem that has brought about this situation. Days like this may be annoying, but they do bring hidden tensions out into the open. However, it might not be a bad idea to let the dust settle first. But this time is not necessarily so difficult, depending on how well you have been handling your emotions.

Moon Square Mars
Today and tomorrow, 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.

Venus Square Chiron
During this time you probably feel hurt, offended or ignored and therefore you have withdrawn into yourself, and do not allow anyone to get really close to you. At the same time, though, deep down you want to participate, enjoy life, love and be loved. Nevertheless, you should not expect too much of yourself in this respect. You probably need seclusion or a withdrawal to get over everything. In that case you should not bury yourself in your pain as that will not make things better. You will possibly find that the behavior of the other person was unintentional, and that your present situation mainly mirrors your own sensitivity.

NASCAR Driver Quote of The Week ~ Juan Pablo Montoya’s Astro-Prediction – Loudon

“Formula 1 drivers are convinced that they’re so much better than anyone else,”  “When I was in F1, every week I was on the podium. It was cool, but is it satisfying? It wasn’t, because it was the most boring races.

Juan Pablo Montoya F1

“The guy who started in front of you would drive away from you, and the guy who was behind you would drop away from you, unless you [had] f***ed up in qualifying – and then you needed to have a different pit-stop strategy to beat them.”

Juan Pablo Montoya

 

Montoya had a lot to say about NASCAR and F1. Read the rest of the story here.

Here is JPM’s ‘scope for Sunday’s race at Loudon:

Today you may have to encounter and even oppose powerful pressures and forces exerted upon you, both from without and from within. The way you live and exert your energies will be tested today, perhaps forcing you to make radical changes in the areas of your life that you find are not working very well. The best way to use this influence is to let go of old patterns of behavior that today’s events demonstrate to be invalid. Holding on to them will only make your life more difficult, and if you give them up, you will have room for the positive creative changes that can take place now. Also you may have to contend with the breakdown of machines or situations. Anything that tends not to function very smoothly will work very poorly today. It is time to straighten out the situation or fix up the mechanical problem.

NHRA Star Scott Kalitta Killed in Qualifying

Scott Kalitta, a two-time former NHRA Top Fuel champion and one of just 14 drivers to have won in both of NHRA’s nitro categories, died June 21, 2008, as the result of injuries suffered in a qualifying accident at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J., during the running of the Lucas Oil NHRA SuperNationals. He was 46.

NHRA Scott Kolitta killed

Kalitta was on a good pass until there was a huge engine explosion as he neared the finish line. The explosion shredded the rear of the body, sending pieces high in the air. The car continued through the shutdown area at high speed, into the sand and through the net, still at high speed. We could not see what happened after that, but there was a big ball of flame well past the sand pit, near the trees at the far end of the property. Then came the long wait for information from the accident scene, and word on Kalitta’s condition.
Kalitta is survived by wife Kathy, sons Cory (14) and Colin (9). He was the son of drag racing legend Connie Kalitta and cousin to current Top Fuel racer Doug Kalitta.

His death represents the second Funny Car fatality in as many years. Eric Medlen died in April 2007, the result of injuries sustained in an accident while testing.

Our prayers are with his family and friends. May God bless you in this tragedy.

NASCAR Astro Prediction ~ Sonoma Part 2

Here are the rest of the pertinent aspect that will affect the driver’s in Sonoma. So far, the have been right on…(See Dario Franchetti’s scope in part one). This weekend’s race also falls right after Summer Solstice, which begins to bring to fruition, the seeds we plant in our lives, in the Spring.

Jimmy Johnson, born 17 September 1975
Mars Opposition Moon
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.

Mark Martin, born 9 January 1959
Sun Opposition Saturn
Today you may become very conscious of the limitations imposed on you by circumstances and other people. Your task today is to not let yourself be overwhelmed by them. One effect of this influence is a sense of loneliness or inability to communicate with others. You feel that there is a gulf between you and others that you can’t possibly cross. What you are experiencing is the real gulf that always exists between people. But there is no need to let that truth drag you down. You may not feel this effect psychologically, as described above. Instead you may find that you are actually unable to communicate with people, or that others constantly get in your way and hold you back. But you have to make compromises. If you are honest in expressing your needs to others, you should be able to work it out.

Carl Edwards, born 15 August 1979
Moon Square Uranus
 Today during the day the quality of time arouses an independent and rebellious spirit in you. You are inclined to do exactly the opposite of what someone suggests and to reject whatever others say simply because they said it. For the same reasons you are impatient with restraints, duties and responsibilities. There is a great need to be free and to do something very different, maybe even a little bit wild. You have a strong craving for excitement with this influence, and you may act in ways that you would never consider in a more sober mood. This could be either good or bad, of course, depending on how conservative you usually are and how unusual or outrageous the action. For some people this can be a very liberating influence. For others it is a bit too much.

Matt Kenseth, born 10 March 1972
Moon in the 8th House
During this time your emotional experiences are much more intense than usual, which is reflected in the kinds of people and situations that you are drawn to. For example, you may draw in unusually intense or powerful people who have a strong effect upon you. Very often through your emotional encounters with these people, you experience moods and feelings that are quite different from your “normal” self. You may ask if this is really you, it seems so different. And you may also desire something that belongs to someone else, or you may desire greater control over something that is both yours and another’s. In either case you must recognize that your attachment serves no real purpose and that it is a potential source of trouble.

Kyle Busch, born 2 May 1985
Venus Opposition Neptune
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 realiy 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.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., born 10 October 1974
Moon Trine Mars
Tonight 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.

Kasey Kahne, born 10 April 1980
Moon Opposition Ascendant
Today during the day your closest contacts will take on a more emotional tone. You will be able to communicate your feelings more easily to your partner , a close working colleague or anyone else whom you encounter on an intimate level. Although the effects of this influence are not very difficult to deal with, you should be aware that you are likely to be so emotional and subjective in your relations with others that you may have difficulty seeing someone else’s point of view. However, this influence favors situations in which you have to be sensitive to another’s feelings or in which someone else has to be sensitive to yours. In your contacts with others you will seek warmth, support and nurture, and you will be equally capable of giving these to others when necessary.

Jamie McMurray, born 3 June 1976
Mercury Conjunction Sun
At this time you must express yourself and your thinking in every possible way. Your mind is clearer than usual, and you feel more alert and mentally sharp. At the same time you are very conscious of your purpose in any project you are engaged in, which enables you to express that purpose clearly to others. Just be careful that you aren’t putting so much energy into communicating with others that you aren’t allowing their communication to come back in to you. Also don’t let your own subjective point of view blind you to others’ points of view. Your eager mind may also attract the attention of someone above you, who will get in touch with you about some matter that is important to you. In general this influence favors communication with men rather than with women, but all communication is improved.

Kevin Harvick, born 8 December 1975
Moon Trine Pluto
This morning your feelings and emotions are much more intense, but at the same time your sensitivity is stimulated. You feel everything much more powerfully than usual, and you are not likely to take your feelings or anyone else’s lightly. It puts you in a serious mood and makes you seek the most powerful and intimate encounters with another. Sexual relationships may be considerably enriched, because this influence enables you to get past the superficial levels of communication that may have been driving you and your loved one apart. In this way you can again feel as one. In general, life will call you to approach it with some passion and feeling. And if you can respond, it can be a very rich and rewarding experience in which you learn much about your feelings.

Denny Hamlin, born 18 November 1980
Moon Square Chiron
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.

Brian Vickers, born 24 October 1983
Moon Trine Med.Coeli
This morning your personal needs and career needs are balanced, and there will not be as much tension between them as at other times. Also your emotions are in tune with your intentions so that you can go about your business with complete oneness. There is less of the feeling that two sides of you are struggling for mastery over the whole. Under this influence you have a great ability to relate to others on an emotional level, because you feel your emotions so richly yourself. You are sensitive to others’ needs, and you understand how you can use their moods and sensitivities for positive ends. On the other hand, you may choose to retire into your own personal world. The richness of feeling and emotion that this time brings may make you feel like being alone or with only your closest loved ones.

Road Races are my favorite. Can’t wait! Until then, make sure you check out part 1 of the ‘scopes, to get the whole picture.

Tally Ho! Onward!!
