The asteroids – Juno, Pallas, Vesta and Ceres give enormously insightful additional information in our natal chart. Venus has always been seen to symbolise love and what we value, how we love, who we love. Venus also symbolises our creativity along with our finances.
Juno brings love to a whole new level. It is the asteroid symbolising deeper love and marriage and where it falls in our chart gives helpful clues as to what type of long term relationship will work best for us. Mine for example is angular in Sagittarius, on my descendant. So yes, many of my intimate relations have been with men not born in Ireland.
My deepest, most fulfilling relationship however, has been with someone who is Irish but who loves travelling extensively. Not surprisingly his Jupiter sits right in my Juno and also exactly conjuncts my Descendant! As we have both these aspects in Sagittarius, expansive communication around travel is hugely inspiring for us both, even very necessary. We talk extensively about travelling, finding the conversations highly nourishing.
So the sign and house placement of your Juno will give great insight into what type of long term commitment most sustains you. You may need deep commitment along with the desire for freedom. In which case, Uranus will probably play a part. You may long for stability and security – signified if Juno is in Taurus.
Juno symbolizes fairness and in cases where we may feel we have been treated unfairly, we are enraged. Juno was a master of multi tasking and Juno also symbolises give and take, fairness and compromise. Unlike Vesta which symbolises devotion and commitment to a cause, in particular our craft, we must look to Juno for how we manage our deepest connections, how we compromise.
But how do we know when to compromise? How do we know to not do that, to keep that sense of fairness and balance instead? Someone with a strong Juno will be a master of tact and negotiations, a perfect diplomat.
But sometimes throwing compromise out the window is exactly what we need to do. And why not?
Juno lines in astrocartography can give clues as to what type of relationships we will invoke in our new location. Maybe a fiery, lively learning relationship is just what we need at this point in time to shake things up! Like a fling with a passionate Italian! I have seen signs of Juno being like an actress in a play, where we let go of our daily persona and invoke a new way of being and living. How much fun is that! Juno can take us our of our comfort zone and inspire us to learn something new. Just for the fun of it.
Juno by transit by house placement signifies where we may need to retire from the world for a while. Juno transiting the twelfth house symbolises a need to return to a more spiritual path. Juno transiting the fifth house, a greater devotion to our creativity.
Synastry aspects between Juno between two people’s charts in a relationship give enormously valuable insights as to how the relationship will play out. Many successful long term relationships have strong contacts between Juno and Venus, or Juno and Mars, or the Moon. Or between both Juno’s. Juno Mars would signify intense physical attraction which will definitely continue after marriage. Juno Uranus aspects would indicate being electrified and uplifted by the other person. Juno Venus aspects indicates similar approach to aesthetics and a similar value system.
So Juno is not to be overlooked in a chart. It is a key asteroid for long term compatibility and commitment. It truly tells us what most nourishes and sustains us in a relationship, going much deeper than Venus. Juno tells us how the value aspect of the relationship will play out.
