Asteroid Juno In Astrology…
Jupiter and Juno, c. 1597 by Annibale Carracci (artist, Italian,) 1560 –to 1609…
Third discovered of the asteroid goddesses, Juno is the ninth largest asteroid.
In Greek mythology she is the equivalent of goddess Hera. Incredibly important in both Greek and Roman culture she was hailed as Queen of the Gods.
Wife of Zeus she is the goddess of marriages and unions. Embodying femininity, she watches over conception, pregnancy, birth and care.
In Roman times Juno was associated with finance, and the sacred animals (cows and peacocks).
With many eyes on its beautiful feathers, peacocks symbolise Juno watching over women, and many drawings, statues or ancient coins feature the goddess sitting or standing next to the bird.
Jealous Juno… Although labeled the ‘good wife’, Juno was very jealous and aggressive, especially when the eyes of Zeus would wander, which they did frequently!
She fulfilled her duties as a loyal partner, however it was typical for her to kill the offspring of Zeus born of other women – and to slay his other lovers. She is considered the antithesis of Lilith (a.k.a. BML, Black Moon Lilith), who is seen as the mistress and won’t allow any man to cross her. In contrast, Juno remains loyal and faithful to Jupiter, regardless of his indiscretions.
Juno in astrology is used as an indicator of what kind of person we’re meant to marry.
It’s what one needs to feel satisfied in love or romance, or what one feels they need to have a successful, satisfying partnership. Mars may represent the qualities of our ideal mate, (Venus in a man’s chart), but Juno represents loyalty and attachment. It’s what we need rather than simply who we’re attracted to.
You might think of your Juno as a representation of your true love or marriage partner.
So if your Juno is transiting Gemini, you’ll enjoy being married to someone that has the qualities of the Twins!
In synastry, when a person’s Juno is contacted by another persons planet a strong attachment is indicated. The person will represent what you’re looking for in a relationship and it will often feature in the synastry charts of married couples.
