challenges and difficulties
Mitchell doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Joni is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Joni Mitchell does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Joni Mitchell must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Joni Mitchell tends to suppress her feelings and may be a bit inhibited in love relationships. Often times she may feel rejected or she may give the impression of rejecting others herself. Perhaps her mother or father has a difficult time showing their affection.
She is quite cool and reserved in matters of love relationships and tends to hold back her inclination for love. Somewhat inhibited in regard to relationships, Joni Mitchell is inclined to feel that she is better off staying by herself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joni Mitchell instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Joni Mitchell needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Joni Mitchell's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Mitchell's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Joni Mitchell is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Joni should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Joni Mitchell can offer the world at large.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Joni Mitchell needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Joni Mitchell should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Joni Mitchell in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Mitchell, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Joni Mitchell's path to wholeness involves confronting her dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming herself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Mitchell's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Joni.
Joni has an extremely magnetic personality along with strong sexual attraction. Joni Mitchell tends to put her heart and soul into her work and may prefer to work with partners of the opposite sex.
She may have an inner fear of separation and could feel left out or ignored at times. Joni Mitchell may have not received much affection while she was growing up or it had to be shared with others. Joni could find it difficult to show her love in her relationships.
Her relationships with others could be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Joni Mitchell avoids opposition and escapes her responsibilities. In her relationships she is likely to choose people who are asocial.
