Who does not want to know what awaits around the corner of our destiny?
Who does not want to have a guideline through life?
Astrological readings could offer us a couple of answers or, more precise – guidelines.
Astrology has commonly been identified with the term of horoscope, while horoscopes are often being simplified and identified with short and generalized zodiac sign predictions, given on a daily basis.
Both astrology and horoscopes are way mote complex.
Yes, they both have to do with the placement and movement of planets and other celestial bodies, including asteroids, such as Juno.
Astrology is vast and deep. It is an old practice, the science of stars, as its name says.
Astrology as we know it dates back into Babylonian times and had a very turbulent history of practice.
Today, it is labeled as one of the pseudo sciences.
Horoscopes are en essential element of astrology. The term horoscope could be translated into the ’observance of time’.
Horoscopes are presented in the form of astrological charts that show the position of the heavenly bodies at one particular point in time.
Most of us are eager to know about personalized astrological readings, that is, personal horoscopes or natal charts.
By looking into one’s birth chart, which is a chart showing the planetary placement at the time of that person’s birth, we could learn about personality traits of that person, attitude towards life, tendencies, potentials, capacities and much more.
This astrological insight will help us find out what areas of life are going to be one’s safest places or greatest weaknesses.
Natal chart provides with precious information about ourselves, info we might not even be aware of.
Horoscopes and astrological readings are much more than generalized insights about zodiac signs alone.
Planets and other celestial bodies, zodiac signs and aspects seen in one’s natal chart shape up the personality and pave the path one threads throughout the lifetime.
Not everything seen within the natal chart will be necessarily manifested.
Asteroids in Astrology
Personalized astrological readings are all about heavenly bodies placement at one specific moment in time.
Planetary placement affect the personality and over our lifetime, planetary transits and positions affect all of us.
Traditionally, astrology knew only seven planets, with Sun and the Moon counted amongst them.
Later, three planets were added, so, in total, we could talk about ten planets, that is, eight planets of the solar system plus luminaries.
However, there other important heavenly bodies we should take into account, when interpreting a natal chart.
Astrology, as any other science or field of research and analyses, always grows and develops, keeping the pace with the latest scientific discoveries in other areas.
In the past, astrology and astronomy were not separated.
Asteroids were incorporated into astrological study quite recently.
First, they were discovered in the nineteenth century. They were added to astrological readings even later.
Asteroids that circulate within the so-called asteroid belt, a space between Jupiter and Mars are many, but four of them are of special importance, when speaking about natal chart interpretations.
The four major asteroids with the greatest astrological value are Juno, Vesta, Pallas and Ceres.
They carry attributes of four ancient deities they were named after.
As you probably realize, four asteroids are named after four major ancient female deities, the four mighty goddesses that could be found in Ancient Roman and Greek mythology.
These are names of Roman counterparts of Ancient Greek deities.
Asteroids have entered astrology at the time of re-questioning the position of women within society, so they were naturally associated with female principle.
Before asteroids, there were only two astrological planets associated with feminine energy, Venus and the Moon.
Astrologically, asteroids represent the feminine principle, the four feminine archetypes, as seen from the mythological background of the four deities.
The placement of asteroids within the natal chart could help us see deeper into our cosmic profile.
Not all astrologers use asteroids in their readings, but it is becoming the practice.
Juno in Astrology
Asteroid Juno is associated with partnership, marriage, long term relationships.
The placement of this asteroid tells about our romantic tendencies, about the type of a partner we need for a long term relationship.
It illustrates the type of a person with whom we should be, whom our own being really needs.
It is not about the ideal partner we imagine, regardless of what type of a person we imagine we should be attracted to.
Mars and Venus make us be inclined towards one particular type of a person, believing we need it.
Juno has a deeper insight into what we really need, not into what we imagine we need.
Of course, it does not necessarily mean that the former will not be similar with the latter.
Juno is named after the supreme goddess (Juno in roman, Hera in Greek mythology, the wife of the supreme god Jupiter/Zeus.
The myths of Hera and Zeus reveal the attributes of Juno in astrology.
Hera was the goddess of marriage, matrimonial oaths, fertility, reproduction, the great governess of gods, the Queen of Heavens.
She was married to Zeus, the mightiest of gods, the king of Olympus. Zeus fell for Hera’s beauty and personality, and they got married.
However, throughout their divine marriage, Zeus was unfaithful, cheated on Hera and much more, which made Hera humiliated on various occasions, and jealous, even destructive.
However, she remained married to Zeus and never thought of separation.
Hera is a powerful deity, but she represents the archetype of a woman who is both dominant and dominated by her partner.
Hera is also the archetype of a mother, the deity associated with childbirth and the protector of married women.
Juno is an archetype of a woman who would tolerate all kinds of misdeeds, if it serves to keep the family together and to keep her relationship status untouched. Juno puts her partner before everyone else.
In astrological readings, Juno reveals much about our relationships and it help us realize what kind of a partner we actually need.
