Billy Ray Cyrus's Dancing With The Stars Strategy

Photo: Charles Pfeil

We're huge fans of "Dancing With The Stars" in our home, and we each have our favorites. One of my partner's favorites, Billy Ray Cyrus, was voted off last night which came as no big surprise, and even Billy Ray hammed it up and feigned 'mock' surprise when the red light came upon him after the tedious wait to see who would be leaving the show.

After judge Bruno Tonioli used the word 'crap' in reference to Billy Ray's dance or dancing skills (or maybe both!), you could see he was quite ticked off, and he told co-host Samantha Harris, "It's so rude." Billy Ray knew his time was coming to leave. Being the Southern Gentleman he is, he probably felt sadness for his sexy and patient dance teacher and partner, Karina Smirnoff.

Here's my theory, and it's JUST MY theory based on his astro data. I think Billy Ray's strategy all along was to get as much mileage out of the publicity that comes from dancing on this show, and for him to stay as long as he did probably shocked him....and undoubtedly pleased him too! Already a successful country western singer with the famous hit, "Achy Breaky Heart" and a co-star on his teenage daughter's successful television show "Hannah Montana", Billy Ray just needed to put himself EVEN MORE into the public eye before he releases his next CD!

Now he's assured his next CD will be a hit because of his underdog status on the show...because of the way he hung in there and worked his butt off performing the dances... and because of the way he behaved throughout his time on the show! Billy Ray has once again assured himself of being a household name! This was his strategy I surmise.

Let's look at his astro data: Born August 25, 1962 at 5:52 PM in Flatwoods, Kentucky, he was born with his Sun in Virgo and Moon in Aquarius. His North Node is in Leo. I've mentioned nodes before in my posts, and Leo North Nodes imho fulfill their nodal placement when they entertain, even if it's just horsing around for friends.

Transiting Jupiter has been squaring his natal Mercury, and it was these two planets who hatched the strategy to get his name and fame grown bigger. There were no doubt times when Billy Ray had been practicing dance routines all day long that he asked himself, "What was I thinking?" There's an old down home expression which goes like this: my eyes were bigger than my stomach.

I'm sure the pay-off from the publicity will be worth every achy breaky muscle he has experienced!

I have noticed a lot of entertainers have Leo aspects, pushing them to gain spotlight for good or bad. I think that is interesting! Billy Ray is a Virgo but has Leo Aspects like Paris? Seeking attention anyone? I like Billy Ray on Dancing although he is not my fave.

I applaud Billy Ray Cyrus for taking a risk by going on Dancing With The Stars and learning the ballroom dances. He contributed a needed sense of realism to the show and tackled each dance with gusto and determination. My personal favorite dance team is Ian and Cheryl. They have so much personality and give each dance 100% effort. Ian is not a professional dancer (like Joey) or a professional athlete (like Apolo and Laila), so he's at a natural disadvantage, but yet he can go toe-to-toe with them in talent. Last week Ian received six straight "9s" from the judges. I hope he surprises everyone by giving his best performances in the next two weeks and capturing the trophy. If you like Ian and Cheryl, please do your part to vote for them on Monday -- vote 4 times for each phone number and 4 times online. Also, Ian has really cool videos on his websites at and and there you can sign up to receive his fun email blasts.
