The True Story of “Me & Bobby McGee”

Kris Kristofferson (June 22, 1936) and Janis Joplin (January 19, 1943)

I was thinking about Kris Kristofferson yesterday, wondering if I remembered how to spell his name. Then I thought about Janis Joplin’s version of his song. This post is the result of those thoughts.

Kris Kristofferson

There is but one inconjunct:

Mercury Inconjunct Ascendant

You are likely to have some problems, but not serious ones, in communicating with others. The problem is that people’s first impression of you may not fit in with what you say or your manner of thinking and speaking. People tend to hear what they expect to hear, and they may not listen to you as carefully as they should. So you will have to be as clear as possible and insist that others listen to what you are really saying. If others do not understand you, it is up to you to set them straight.

Janis Joplin

I’ve looked at Janis’ chart once before in conjunction with a potential reincarnation, see it here. There is a Yod, pointing at the Moon, supported by inconjuncts from Mercury and Midheaven.

Moon Inconjunct Mercury

As you grow older, you will have to learn to make your feelings and your reason work together. The problem is not so much that they come into conflict with each other, but that your reason and feelings represent two very different sides of your personality. When you are calm and collected and able to reflect carefully, you make decisions in one way. But when you are emotionally involved in a situation, you are likely to make up your mind differently, which could cause you to seem inconsistent to others and make it difficult for them to understand you.

Moon Inconjunct Midheaven

With this aspect you must learn to make your emotional needs and desires for pleasure fit in with your growth and development in the world. It is possible that these problems could make it difficult for you to choose a profession or a course that would give your life a sense of purpose. Or you may be unable to follow one path consistently. In other words, your emotional needs may be in conflict with your long-range goals. You may know what you have to do, but not feel much like doing it. Or your feelings may actually color your perception so much that you really do not see what has to be done. Try not to form bad habits, because they are especially likely to create difficulties of this sort.

When Kris Met Janis

Their chart combination has a few inconjuncts, but only two of them form a Yod pointing at Kris’ Pluto: Janis’ South Node/Ascendant in Aquarius on one hand; and Janis’ Mars in Sagittarius (conjunct Kris’ Part of Fortune) on the other. This was a spiritual awakening for Kris, for sure.

The Proof is in the Pudding

R.I.P. Janis. (And thank you, Kris.)
