General Daily Insight for June 17, 2024

Our feelings and ideas can flow unimpeded at last! Venus, the planet of love and beauty, enters emotional Cancer at 2:20 am EDT, setting us up for better relationships. Starting from the inside and working out should net the best results. Meanwhile, messenger Mercury will be very busy, squaring mystical Neptune before it follows Venus and dives into Cancer for the next few weeks. Mercury and Venus will then conjoin, beautifully blending their energies together and bringing out the best in all of us.

Aries

March 21 – April 19

A gentle touch is never a bad idea. Loving Venus is stepping into your sensitive 4th house, opening up a path for you to lead with an open heart without laying on the drama. You may crave more time with family or close friends — don’t hesitate to host everyone! Venus can also bring out your inner interior decorator, so if you’ve been considering a bit of renovation or redecoration, go ahead and start sprucing up your surroundings with a little luxury.

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

You don’t have to go far to find enjoyable experiences. Your ruler Venus is moving into your 3rd House of Local Community for the next few weeks. While Venus is here, it will draw your eyes to fun just outside your front door. Make a point of hitting the town and painting it whatever color you like, because you could uncover lots of cool spots and make some friends who can bring a lot of joy into your life. Get out and about!

Gemini

May 21 – June 20

You deserve to pamper yourself as much as anyone else! Money-loving Venus is entering your 2nd House of Material Wealth, which is a sector Venus feels very at home in. You’ve got the astrological green light to splash out on something special and enjoy the fruits of your labors. That said, it can be difficult to deny yourself anything while Venus visits here. Maintain a sense of responsibility by establishing a firm budget before you begin to throw your wallet around.

Cancer

June 21 – July 22

You’ve got an extra special flare today! Alluring Venus is dancing into your sign for its annual visit, making you one of the most interesting and attractive signs in the zodiac. Venus governs aesthetics, so if you’ve been considering a new look or a makeover, then this is the time to get yourself to a stylist or wherever you’d like to build your update. The change could be anything, from colorful hair dye all the way to a piercing or tattoo.

Leo

July 23 – August 22

The world is taking on a fantastical hue for the next few weeks. Venus is gliding into your 12th House of Dreams, effectively handing you a pair of rose-colored glasses and encouraging you to see the beauty all around you. While life may seem to flow along at an almost magical pace, that doesn’t mean there’s no reason to be careful. Venus can blind you to red flags, so make sure that you’re looking through those rosy glasses as clearly as possible.

Virgo

August 23 – September 22

Enough burning the midnight oil — it’s time to have some fun. Pleasure planet Venus is jumping out of your ambitious 10th house and into your outgoing 11th house, putting the community front and center for the next few weeks. This transit can feel like a real popularity boost, so when you reach out to your pals, you can create special memories to last a lifetime. Making fresh connections is also favored now, as Venus will make sure they are to your benefit.

Libra

September 23 – October 22

You can win first place today — and look good doing it. Your reputation gets an extra special shine as your sign’s ruler Venus enters your proud 10th house, boosting your ability to shine bright in front of everyone. Venus likes to bless you wherever she can, so over the next few weeks, you may get some rewards for work done previously. Some amazing assignments that feel more like gifts than work could practically land in your lap. You certainly deserve this bounty!

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

Beauty can be found everywhere — from a flower growing through concrete to the most grandiose work of art. When was the last time you looked for something new to appreciate in your world? As Venus strolls into your exotic 9th house, you’ve got a knack for finding fresh delights all around. Venus is a sensory planet, so consider experimenting with unfamiliar cuisines, music, scents, and so on. When it comes to experiments that are outside your usual comfort zone, dive in without reserve!

Sagittarius

November 22 – December 21

You can handle depth, Sagittarius. Regardless of your typical habits, taking a casual approach to your connections isn’t as likely to be successful. As Venus enters your deeply private 8th house, you’ll likely be drawn to share with important people who are willing to meet you halfway, if not even further. This can be great for strengthening bonds. On top of that, this sector also rules major finances. Venus may soon send a fantastic windfall practically to your front door!

Capricorn

December 22 – January 19

Coming together with people who matter shouldn’t feel like a game of tug-of-war. Happily, any recent stressors or strains on your important connections should ease up as gentle Venus arrives in your relationship sector. This transit benefits all sorts of one-on-one partnerships, so whether you’re trying to improve things with a business partner or personal pal, all options are on the table. Likewise, Venus could bring you someone new to fit one of these specific bills who vastly improves your outlook on life.

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

Becoming your best self doesn’t need to be a spartan process. You can make your daily routines a little bit lovelier as Venus enters your responsible 6th house. Even if you’re on a wellness kick, you don’t need to push yourself to the point of burnout. Avoid things like cutting out every bit of food that makes you happy or exercising till you can hardly move. There are ways to indulge without going overboard so you feel healthy, but not deprived.

Pisces

February 19 – March 20

You’ve got the green light to kick back and have some fun. Venus, the planet of joy and beauty, is dancing into your expressive 5th house, giving you cosmic clearance to leave mundane matters for another time in favor of highlighting whatever brings joy into your life. All forms of love are better than ever right now! This cycle is also terrific for artistic inspiration, so don’t be shy about letting your muse take hold. You can create something truly stunning.

HAMPTON —  Chris Johnson and Brad Adams drove to 30-lap Modified victories in Langley Speedway featured races Saturday night. It was the first triumph of the year for both.

In the opener, Johnson overcame runner-up Ryley Music by 538-thousandths of a second in a race that took about 8:41. Peyton Ferree was a distant third, 3.999 seconds behind the leader, in a field of 12.

Adams, fifth in the first race, built a large edge in the encore and held on to defeat Ferree by 0.906 of a second. Johnson was third, 1.700 off the lead. DJ Valente, who began the night with the season points lead, got stuck in the grass after spinning between Turns 3 and 4 and finished last.

In other divisions:

Virginia Racers: Ayden Millette won a 50-lap thriller by 263-thousandths of a second, which relegated Music, the series’ points leader, to his second runner-up finish of the evening. Donovan Edwards took third, just 0.563 of a second behind Millette, in the field of 17 competitors.

It was Millette’s second win of the season, and it took more than 27:17.

Super Street: Hampton’s Dale Nichols achieved his fourth victory of the year in six races, winning by a relatively comfortable 1.034 seconds over Gordon Weeks after 40 laps and about 23:15. Jacob Wood took third among 14 drivers, 1.849 off the lead.

Pro Six: Travis Wall made it 3 for 3 in division races in 2024, finishing 25 laps in about 7:20 to finish 2.199 seconds ahead of runner-up Trey New. Jaxon Boone placed third among eight entrants.

UCAR: Christian Keller took a dominant lead, saw it reduced by a late caution flag, then pulled away again to win a 25-lap race by 694-thousandths of a second over Richard Quinn. Mikey Chinn was third, 1.158 behind the victor, in a race that took about 20:19 and included 14 drivers.
It was Keller’s fourth victory in five races, extending his points edge for the year.

Enduro: Charlie Bryant closed the program with a 30-lap victory over a fast-closing Alex Floroff, the series points leader. It was the first victory of the year for Bryant; Floroff has three triumphs.

The race went uninterrupted until there were less than three laps to go, when it was red-flagged. Bryant, last year’s points champion, never let Floroff past him, and Zachary Herdlein placed third.

General Daily Insight for June 15, 2024

We’re moving along at a gentle pace today, with no need to rush or worry. The Moon is in Libra, speaking up about the rewards of aiming for a steady middle ground, rather than trying to rock the boat just for laughs or pressing buttons to cause a reaction. Our words carry extra weight while the Sun and Mercury continue to waltz through Gemini, so there’s no need for us to keep our kind thoughts to ourselves. Communication can work wonders.

Aries

March 21 – April 19

Life’s current benefits can be maximized by being open with others. The Moon is tumbling through your relationship sector, encouraging you to double up in the name of whatever you choose, be it personal fun or enjoyable business. The Sun and Mercury are still moving in close alignment, so conversations begun recently are receiving an extra boost as your attention shifts toward important people. Communication is the name of the game, but you don’t need to play games in order to succeed.

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

Accomplishing everything in front of you should be easy as pie. There’s a simple theme to the day as the Moon marches through your efficient 6th house, showing you how to move forward one step at a time. You can absolutely make steady progress in your preferred direction. Your finances are still in the picture after the recent Sun-Mercury conjunction in your money sector, so you can potentially turn this productivity into cash in the bank if you take things slowly.

Gemini

May 21 – June 20

It’s a good day to enjoy yourself! There’s a cosmic emphasis on pleasure while the Moon dances through your fun-loving 5th house, so you’re probably not very focused on work or anything mundane at the moment. If needs must, you can buckle down and get things done with the Sun and Mercury both tightly aligned in your sign. Still, try to find some time to express yourself — maybe even in front of an audience! The universe wants you to show off your talents.

Cancer

June 21 – July 22

You can move at a manageable pace when you acknowledge everything will happen when it’s meant to. Make an effort to set aside the wider world to manage any internal issues while the Moon moves through your foundational 4th house. You shouldn’t have to worry about what others are up to! You’re also allowed to indulge in some magical self-case as the Sun and Mercury sway close together in your fantastical 12th house, try welcoming a bit of fantasy into your life.

Leo

July 23 – August 22

Everywhere you go, there’s someone you know! The Moon is frolicking through your neighborly 3rd house, making it a good time to get out and about and see what’s going on in your local community. People could be popping up like mushrooms thanks to the fact the Sun and Mercury are chatting together in your 11th House of Global Networks. Don’t be shocked if your popularity is off the charts. Everyone should be eager to spend time together, so get on board.

Virgo

August 23 – September 22

This is no time to rest on your laurels! Your mind is tugged toward your money while the Moon tours your 2nd House of Earned Income. Do your best to make time to check on your annual budget, just in case. You can think in broader terms with the Sun and Mercury continuing along in your career sector, so don’t focus on small details that won’t create an impact. A work opportunity may also be in the cards if you know where to look.

Libra

September 23 – October 22

You deserve as much attention as anyone else. It’s a good time to focus on your needs and goals while the Moon is spending time in your sign, inspiring you to ponder personal matters that were potentially put on hold while other concerns demanded your focus. Broad thinking is encouraged with other planets lighting up your expansion sector, so avoid limiting yourself in any way. The possibilities really are endless if you are willing to pursue them.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

There’s a special undercurrent to the day, one which encourages a gentle touch. You’ll be drawn to lay back while the Moon is coasting through your dreamy 12th house. There’s no need to put the pedal to the metal if you’d rather hang out in the slow lane. A strange, suspicious feeling could rear its head while your 8th House of Secrets hosts a number of other planets, but don’t get caught up in potential problems if your reality appears anything but stormy.

Sagittarius

November 22 – December 21

The way you connect to others is coming into sharper focus. You may find yourself interacting with lots of different people from many different places while the Moon tours your 11th House of Social Networks. However, the most important connections should be easily identified, thanks to the focus of the Sun and Mercury continuing to march through your 7th House of Partnerships. When it comes to your relationships, think in terms of quality, rather than quantity, and you can’t go wrong.

Capricorn

December 22 – January 19

You can make steady progress, knowing you’re heading in the right direction. You’re in your element as the Moon moves through your ambitious 10th house, bracing you to get serious about how you use your time and energy. Check in on any ongoing projects — or start a new one! With the Sun and Mercury traveling in tandem through your responsible 6th house, it should be unusually easy to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Choose your destination, then start walking.

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

The world is full of possibility, so don’t just leave it for others to discover! You’ve got your sights set as far as possible while the Moon soars through your 9th House of Adventure, giving you a bird’s eye view of life. You should find plenty of things to enjoy beyond the horizon, thanks to the fact that the Sun and Mercury are still dancing in your 5th House of Pleasure, so spread your wings and see what’s on offer.

Pisces

February 19 – March 20

It’s a good day to focus on your feelings. The Moon is encouraging you to enjoy some alone time while it drifts through your private 8th house, so don’t be shocked if the last thing you want to do is bounce around, chit-chatting and having small talk with random strangers. The urge to stick close to home is especially strong while a number of other planets still hover in your foundational 4th house. Tend to your individual needs before bowing to others.
