I do not believe in war. I do not believe in the weapons of war ... I am not going to volunteer 60% of my year’s income tax that goes to armaments.
–Joan Baez’s letter to the Internal Revenue Service, explaining her refusal to pay federal income tax.
I’ve been obsessed with stopping people from blowing each other’s brains out since I was ten.
Artist and peace activist Joan Baez was born in Staten Island, near the setting position of her Secondary Neptune. Her birthplace was also along the edge of a Transcendental Midpoint-Field, extending from her Secondary Neptune, which curves over eastern New York State, to her Primary Venus, which runs in a vertical, Midheaven line west of New York State, thus framing the state and much of the northeastern U.S.
As a child, Baez moved to various locations throughout New York with her physicist father, whose research and teaching assignments demanded frequent travel and relocation. After briefly attending Boston University, in 1958 she discontinued her studies to instead perform folk music in coffeehouses, clubs, and festivals. She received national exposure the following year, at the Newport Folk Festival, another location near the eastern edge of her Primary Venus / Secondary Neptune Transcendental Midpoint-Field.
Her album Joan Baez (1960) marked the beginning of a successful recording career, which included strong record sales in the early 1960s. Applying her “creative imagination / and artistry” (Neptune / Venus) toward the goal of “peace” (Primary Venus), she established the Institute for the Study of Nonviolence (1965) and became active in protests against the Vietnam War, giving free performances for various antiwar organizations and peace rallies. A self-acclaimed “Peace Queen,” she was jailed twice for participating in “antiwar” (Venus) demonstrations. In 1964, she refused to pay her taxes in protest of the federal funding of the war. Influenced by the “pacifist views” (Venus) of her Quaker father, Baez has made a lifelong commitment to “pacifism” and to channeling her “imagination / and creative talents” (Neptune / Venus) into music, promulgating “peaceful coexistence, nonviolence, and mutual understanding” (Primary Venus).
