Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, Joni Mitchell has an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on telepathy. Joni Mitchell is extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - human or animal - suffer. Because of her kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people suffering from pain or confusion are drawn to Mitchell for help, which she readily gives. Sometimes Mitchell's soft-heartedness is taken advantage of.
She is a gentle, poetic soul and has a great love and affinity for music. Because many of her feelings are vague and she cannot easily verbalize how she experiences life, music seems a natural language for Mitchell. She is also extremely romantic and often "in love with love".
Mitchell works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to Joni, and she may invest more of her emotional energy into her career or public life than in her private life. Providing and caring for others, in a professional capacity is very likely.
She needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Joni Mitchell is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Joni has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make her cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Joni - one that can be enormously satisfying if she can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if she cannot.
She is temperamental and impatient and can be very difficult to live with. Joni Mitchell tends to respond with a temper tantrum (overt or subtle) if her desires are frustrated. Joni Mitchell becomes very irritable and bad-tempered if she lacks vigorous physical activity or other outlets for her aggressive, feisty spirit.
Although she is impetuous and easily provoked (as mentioned above), Joni Mitchell also has a good-natured, live-and-let-live attitude and a sense of humor, which balances it all out. While hotheaded at times, she is usually a good sport.
She is prone to be overly indulgent, overly permissive, overly generous, and disinclined to budget or diet or set reasonable limits for herself or others. Subconsciously Joni Mitchell feels entitled to bounty, and sees no reason to be deprived. At her worst Mitchell can be greedy but insatiable, and addicted to "the good life". However, if other factors in her chart indicate a capacity for discipline and prudence, there is a positive side to Joni's emotional indulgence - Mitchell tends to be quite charitable and tolerant, freely giving and willing to embrace others despite their shortcomings.
Although Mitchell gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), she also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Joni Mitchell to rein in some of her more aggressive tendencies. This side of her is described below.
There is another side to Joni Mitchell as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers her good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Joni Mitchell often feels that she must do something or be something other than what she is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. She is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though she may appear cool or distant, Mitchell actually cares very much about being included. Because she is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Joni Mitchell to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises she may endure once she lets others really know her in an intimate, personal way. Her reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Joni Mitchell becomes very attached to the few people she considers "real friends". Mitchell can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if she views them as times to nourish herself and develop her own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
She is quietly devoted and faithful to her loved ones and often becomes subservient to her love partner. Joni Mitchell is more comfortable showing her love by doing or making something for her loved one, or simply being there for her, rather than by making any romantic, soul-stirring declarations. She is timid about expressing too much sentiment or emotion. Joni Mitchell also underestimates her attractiveness and lovability and doubts her own worthiness of love and appreciation.
A warm, loving, and comfortable home is very important to Joni Mitchell and she invests a lot of her energy into beautifying, decorating, and creating a lovely home. Also, Joni shares her affection with the people in her family very generously and having close family relationships is a major priority for her. Being at home makes Mitchell happy.
She is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy herself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Joni Mitchell rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in her early life, Joni is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing her feelings. Though Mitchell craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for her. She may become romantically involved with people who do not value her or treat her well. Joni Mitchell needs to learn to love and value herself before she finds happiness in love.
She is very romantic, idealistic and imaginative about love relationships. Joni Mitchell yearns for her "true love" or "soul mate" and may become disappointed in those who never quite live up to her dream image of the perfect lover. Mitchell frequently fantasizes about love and often falls in love with someone she can only love from afar. She may avoid making a definite personal commitment. Gentle and sensitive, Joni Mitchell does not like to be approached in a very direct or aggressive manner. She is attracted to those with artistic or mystical inclinations.
Joni Mitchell has artistic interests and may be attracted to people who are artists, are connected with artistic endeavors or interested in art. She is very sociable and feel more at home in beautiful surroundings.
Joni Mitchell has a need to mix with people expressing the same feelings and having the same interests that she has. Joni shares her artistic concerns with others and is likely to join groups or associations that deal with art in some way.
