Juno in Astrology
The asteroid Juno was the third discovered asteroid or minor planet found between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter. The Roman goddess, Juno, was the protector and counselor of the state and hele watch over women. The Greek goddess equivalent was Hera.
In astrology, Juno represents commitment, marriage, betrayal, give-and-take in partnerships, partnership itself where it involves the effort to balance the power between two people, infidelity, fairness, and compromise. Juno is enraged with inequalities and shows us where we seek to make things balanced, fair, and right.
Juno has definite shades of Pluto and Venus/Scorpio and Libra energy. We’re triggered where Juno is in our charts, but it’s also a place of potential power and empowerment. Look to Vesta for devotion or commitment to a person or cause; look to Juno for clues as to how we make the most of our connections, and also in what way or area we are deeply bothered if we’re not treated with respect.
Most notably, Juno is the master of multi-tasking. She does so many things well, and people with Juno strong in their charts are similar. She’s connected to marriage and union, in general, but she is complicated, powerful, and political.
The star is placed over the cross (matter) or a specter.
