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 born November 7 1943,  10:00 pm Fort Macleod Alberta Canada. 

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.

Yes its also  big Full AQUARIUS MOON + the Sun entered LEO before noon today. Jupiter in the Natal U.S. Sibley chart is at 5 degrees 56 minutes of CANCER sign of MOM & APPLE PIE a couple of the U.S.’s brainwashing symbols. Jupiter is close to the U.S. Sun at 13 degrees + Cancer conjunct the Fixed Star SIRIUS.

Much like a Solar Return chart which is an annual chart done to describe the upcoming year, a Jupiter Return can also be used as a forecasting tool a person or for the U.S. for the next year.

JUPITER In CANCER- shows WOMEN assuming and asserting their power in government and changing the laws. Jupiter expands all things, but too much of a good thing is not so good either. With the announcement of Detroit’s bankruptcy last week during the Mercury Retrograde, in spite of the Federal Reserve creating trillions to help save Detroit’s famed auto industry, it has failed. Detroit is the largest city to ever declare bankruptcy. It has lost 25% of is population, and crime is at a 40 year high. Where did all those $ go? I think Detroit is the warning flag, that the economy is about to crash. Let’s look at the chart and see what today predicts

US sibley chart Tara Greene astrology

The U.S. “SIBLEY” chart + Transits July 22 2013

The Planets  on July 4 1776.  Mars is conjunct Jupiter today as well at 5 degrees 54 seconds,Cancer  it’s 2 second off, so it will happen within minutes to become exact.Mars and Jupiter have also just passed over the U.S. VENUS- money, the economy,women, which is at 3 degrees Cancer. So Mars is awakening, making aggressive and defensive every planet he contacts.

Mars in Cancer though is in its fall, and Jupiter in Cancer is exalted. Jupiter is stronger, he than rules the Sagittarius Ascendant the persona of the U.S.  Jupiter also traditionally rules Pisces but the U.S. has an intercepted Pisces house, which means it is its shadow,  karmic house. Needs to be addresses, Pisces is addictions, delusion, illusion, fantasy, charity, compassion, glamour,oil,  Hollywood.

The transiting Sun is at the 29 degree, critical degree  of CANCER.

Mercury,planet of communications- all media, computers, images, devices is  sitting right on the U.S. Natal SUN in the 7th house and just turned Direct right on the Sun. Planets are the most powerful when they have just turned direction. Mercury hasn’t moved off the 13th degree yet. This indicates a change in policy.

Mars and Jupiter, are also in the 7th house of the U.S. The Sun is the vitality, the Source, and all the other planets in the 7h house it’s  all about needing OTHERS, this is the traditional house of marriage. Mars is the army, war, aggression, Jupiter is conquest, expansion, education, formerly colonialism. This spells war- aggressively entering another countries territory. 

Mercury conjunct the Sun means communications is the Guiding Light to relating to all others. the INTERNET, THE MEDIA, all communications tools.

The U.S. is  approaching a  Mercurial Full Moon period this year as the Moon is directly opposite the U. S.  Natal Mercury at 24 degrees RETROGRADE in CANCER in the 8th house. The U.s may never have told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth with a Retrograde Mercury. The Moon is always the people, the collective Unconscious, their moods and feelings. Again a sense of some policy or communication coming out, the people opposing the media and the U.S. policy.

FURTHER on that note the Moon is also in close to conjuncting  the U.S. Natal PLUTO at 27 degrees RETROGRADE in the 2nd house of money, values, things, tools, resources.  Full Moon’s are completions, there ain’t no more room too expand. This is the PEOPLE vs the U.S. Power elite government in all ways.

The Moon conjunct PLUTO is INTENSE,obsessions, control, power struggles. Pluto in Capricorn is corporations, government control,and the People will use whatever tools and resources, 2nd house {Taurus} that they have to oppose the will of the Governing bodies both locally financial, the 2nd house and the larger corporate structures of the 8th house. The Money the Federal reserve and wall street big bankers stole from the people to “save the economy.” The revolution is just heating up.

PLUTO at 9 degrees 47 minutes Retrograde of Capricorn in the U.S. first house of SELF identity s also advancing to oppose the U.S. Sun. Transiting Pluto is destroying old outworn corporate, business, and familial structures. Pluto is also power for power’s sake and the corporations are also trying to take total control of the U.S. as we can see in the Monsanto laws, the Alimentary law etc being passed by President Obama, when Monsanto is a known criminally negligent company which is increasingly being banned in most of Europe and parts of South America.

The URANUS PLUTO T-SQUARE is also very much in effect as URANUS @ 12 degrees ARIES Retrograde is close to an exact opposition to the U. S. SUN at 13 degrees CANCER and the U.S. Natal Saturn at 14 degrees Libra in the 10th house of FAME, wordly power. The shit is about to hit the fan big time.

Remember URANUS and Pluto in conjunction in VIRGO opposite Saturn in PISCES CREATED the 60’s.

Now they are having their first square this is where the real revolution begins. In different signs and times and under different aspects. Everyone who was born in 1967 is under the effects as is the entire world.

SATURN at 4 degrees Scorpio in the 11th house of wishes, hopes dreams, new technology, receiving love, is close to squaring the U.S. North Node @ 6 degrees + Leo in the 8th house  of power, money, secrets, control. This is karmic debt/pay up times. Who’s going to PAY? The people or the false government?

Chiron the WOUNDED HEALER at 13 degrees Pisces is swimming in the U.S. 3rd house and squaring, the U.S. Ascendant/ Descendant. Again limping along, licking its wounds.

NEPTUNE at 4 degrees PISCES Retro is also squaring the U.S. natal Uranus at 8 degrees GEMINI in the 6th house of work. Neptune is the planet of illusion, delusion and squaring the Uranus- HI TECH inventiveness in the 6th house of work. Perhaps our fantasies about everything, religion, culture,  oil, Hollywood, hi -tech, all these inventions are enslaving us and not liberating us. Many also trust the false illusion of PROGRESS- Uranus’s promise. Many Americans also trust the Doctor’s, Big Pharma authority which has become a culture of legal and non legal drugs and addictions. 

Even though Jupiter is supposed to be a good thing. Jupiter, as positive as he can be, can also be a Big WIND BAG, in Cancer he is too much shmaltz, smothering the people, a big glut, saccharinely sweet- a deadly chemical created by MONSANTO by the way.

Jupiter in Cancer is optimism at the roots, has to do with history, is too much consumerism, family values, overly optimistic, like the Mortgage meltdown, building and selling people houses which they could not afford.

Jupiter in Cancer has been promising  the people, that THE LAW or the government will take care of them, their homes, their security, that UNCLE SAM will protect them as if they were little children. Where did that notion come from? The people have always been serfs. Perhaps democracy was a nice idea originally and yes there is a modicum of democracy in the U.S. still but it is shrinking.

Jupiter can help to expand the  people {Cancer}  who will have to wake up from their cozy notions and false delusion, from the false promises, from the chem trails and the aspartame, and the microwaved food, and GMO foods, the cell phone and computer electro magnetism pollution, and HAARP and the monitoring that Edward Snowden has just made the people aware of, and the rip offs by the corporations, the government, the entire system.

 Jupiter is the law. It also has a meaning as the HIGHER LAW or SPIRITUAL TRUTH governer.

In that case Jupiter is back where it all started. The King is home. Long live the King.
