Joni Mitchell Astrology

JONI MITCHELL, the 71 year old famed singer songwriter of Woodstock and hundreds of other tunes was rushed to hospital March 31 2015 after a 911 call to her home. Apparently she is better at the moment. Joni Mitchell has always been one of my favourite women singers and songwriters. She has led the way for the entire 60’s generation and  all other modern women songwriter who write very personal lyrics. Joni always marched to her own drummer, she was never sold out, she was true to herself. Yes she has been a heavy smoker all these years and apparently has Morgellan’s disease. In Toronto last year for her pre-70th birthday she came our of retirement to sing.

Joni MItchell health Astrology by Tara Greene

JONI is deep, intense soulful double Scorpio Sun with Mercury conjunct to her natal Sun in the 5th house of creativity, love affairs, self-expression and power. Mercury governs communications and the lungs.Her songs have always come from a very deep, very wise old soul perspective.

Joni’s Moon is in very sensitive, spiritual, emotional, creative sign of PISCES and it is perched atop her wordly fame position the 10th house. Her passionate soul revelation is what have made her world-famous.  “Love is touching soul’s” “We are stardust”  “I could drink a case of you, darling.” are very PISCES lyrics. 

JONI has a Venus in Virgo, Neptune in Libra conjunction opposite to her Moon in her 4th house of privacy, roots, foundation, emotional-security.  Joni is a naturally gifted talented super creative artist, she is also an excellent painter. Deeply romantic, a dreamer and poet, a bard, she is an addicted type of personality, she yearns for that soul merge. Venus in Virgo makes her very disciplined, a hard working perfectionist, critical, grounded, humble and shows underlying health issues. Neptune in Libra makes her highly romantic, a lady of grace, beauty and harmony. Her need for the beloved is channelled through her  cigarette smokinh which she had done since she was eight years old.

JONI also has four planets in GEMINI giving her a dual enquiring nature. She is quite androgynous. and childlike and her mind is very versatile.  Uranus is Retrograde in the 11th house. She is truly Aquarian- the song Woodstock was the anthem for the 60’s generation and she wasn’t even there. She art directed and produced every one of her many albums. Gemini rules the lungs and she is vulnerable here. 

Joni has a very unusual configuration. MARS Retrograde conjunct to Saturn  Retrograde in the 12th house of the Unconscious, karma, self-undoing and privacy. This formation shows a past life of being a man and of coming into this life to finish all karmic contracts with males, father figures, authorities and to express her own individuality. Saturn rules polio which Joni had as a child and recovered from. Gemini rules the lungs and this can also show up as weak lungs or health issues related to her lungs. The two planets are also conjunct to Asteroid Vesta which brings focus, dedication and craft to her writing, communicating and story telling abilities. 

JONI has a CANCER Ascendant and Ceres the Great Mother in her 12th house. Deep down she is very loyal to her roots, her family, her land, she never gave up her Canadian citizenship and maintains a huge piece of land in British Columbia which she often stays on. She had her daughter when married very young and gave her up for adoption to pursue her musical career. She reunited with her daughter and grand child in the past few years.

Joni has lots of LEO star power. PLUTO, symbol of the Soul and the Unconscious is conjunct the NORTH NODE in Leo in her 2nd house of resources, self-esteem and values. This is also a very powerful signature of someone who came into her life  to embody and knowing in her heart what her soul needed to do first and foremost. Joni also has LILITH conjunct to Jupiter in the sign of the Queen, strength, courage, daring, open-hearted self-expression. She wrote of her own love-affairs, her heart stories in all of her songs. She has embodied Lilith’s independent no compromise energy throughout her life. 

Joni has Chiron in Virgo in her 3rd house. She communicates, analyzes and speaks from her wounds in how she writes, paints and creates, this is her greatest vulnerability, her strength and is what heals her. 

She has JUNO in Capricorn in the 7th house. Her feminine genius is what shines in the world. Her craft, her discipline, her hard work, have all made her a star. 

Her SOUTH NODE in Aquarius at 11 degrees in the 8th house. Aquarian freedom is her resource and her ever evolving intellectual transformation is what fuels her. 

In Numerology Joni is a #17/8/ The STAR is her personality Aquarius, so fitting. And a soul number 8. An Eternal infinite soul, strength, power, karma.

So what’s happening with Joni’s health?

Astrologers were the original physicians from thousands of years ago in India. I am not a certified medical astrologer but will give you what I know of in diagnosing Joni’s present transits to give a prediction on her health.

CHIRON, the wounded healer has been opposite her natal Chiron in Virgo for a while now. This has been coming to a head. Neptune is squaring her natal Uranus in Gemini with Saturn Retrograde also opposite in Sagittarius. This is a difficult transit for Joni. Her present emergency may be caused by medication she is taking or her past addictions { smoking, Neptune}. It may be difficult for them to figure out a clear diagnosis as well.

transmitting Jupiter is conjunct Joni’s North Node, Jupiter is still Retrograde and this can exacerbate any heart or circulation related issues. Jupiter is also squaring Joni’s SUN, her vitality and her Mercury in Scorpio which rules the lungs and her I.C. and 12th house. This could be very serious. Jupiter can be too much of a good thing, excessive anything can throw one’s health off. Jupiter is moving very slowly now about to turn Direct on April 8.

PLUTO and Uranus are squaring her Ascendent/Descendent. Joni  is being hammered to let go and transform her life as we all are. Uranus and Pluto in conjunction were the planets which created the 60’s revolution they met in the middle degrees of Virgo where Joni’s natal Chiron is situated. Neptune is moving up to oppose her natal Chiron indicating her health issues may not improve for awhile. This is a spiritual call from illness to transcend.

The recent Total Solar eclipse at 29 degrees Pisces on March 20 is conjunct to her Natal Moon in Pisces and square her natal Saturn both which can indicate ill trials and tests.

Joni will have her best year in 12 as Jupiter turns direct right on her North Node in Leo next week at 12 degrees + Leo and then crossed her natal Jupiter in July of 2015. This usually brings increased strength, vitalityand resiliency. Jupiter will square her Uranus in Gemini in September from VIRGO making her health erratic. Jupiter will then will cross her natal Chiron in October of 2015 which can bring better health but can also make it worse. JUPITER will also square her MARS and SATURN in Gemini in November and December 2015 and throughout most of 2016. This doesn’t look like things will be so easy for Joni. 

Joni’s health is also in danger as Saturn re-enters Sagittarius and squares her Natal Chiron at the end of this year and into 2016.

I send JONI all my best blessings as do her millions of fans for her health and long happy life.

WHat do you think?

  1. Sorry, I got lost at this part……would you mind clarifying – along with the text that followed for that entire paragraph on the transits for 2015 and her health, I just got lost! Otherwise I was enjoying the reading…..thankyou.
    “Joni will have her best year in 12 as Jupiter turns direct right on her North Node in Leo next week at 12 degrees + Leo and then crossed her natal Jupiter in July of 2015. This usually brings increased strength, vitality and resiliency.” etc…….


    • hi Lilith,
      yes i know it can be confusing sometime when there are contradictory meanings because there are two or more planets bringing different energies at the same time. Jupiter is know for expanding whatever it touches. Jupiter brings out the devil may care, over trusting attitude, it can be a gambler willing to bet everything. So on the one hand Jupiter is good crossing Joni’s natal Jupiter in Leo but when Jupiter gets into Virgo where she has her Chiron which indicates health issues, where she is vulnerable and weak. Jupiter can make what is already weak worse. So it really depends on a number of factors. Saturn will also be giving Joni some tests in her chart and Saturn is the reality check, bottom of the line. Does that help?
      anything else? thanks for asking. blessings


  2. Hi Tara – I had the good fortune to see Joni and Cat Stevens do a concert in Washington, DC. I can still see it today. At least some of it :). I had seen her on the street in the village several times but had not seen her working. This is probably the most powerful female presence I have ever experienced. A giant of a human being. Sounds like she could use all our prayers. She certainly has mine. Thanks for caring.

    • hi John,
      wow Joni and Cat together that must have been awesome. I saw Joni sing at Mariposa in the 60’s with James Taylor. I am sure she is a giant presence. She was my heroine as young woman. Yes send Joni love she is a one of a kind Juno. Thanks for caring too.
