What is the secret of our destiny? Who am I and where am I going? Where should I look for the answers?
These are some of the questions each one of us would ask. The answers could be found in the stars.
Stars hold the secret of our existence and our destiny. Since unknown past, humankind would look into the skies, in search for answers and explanations of various phenomena they notice.
Even in prehistoric era, humans observed the movement of celestial bodies.
According to astrology, the oldest of sciences, movement and placement of planets affect our life.
Planetary positioning plays a major role in our destiny, shaping up our personality and our life path.
Planetary placement at the time of one’s birth define who the person is and what will become of one.
In fact, astrology offers us an insight into potentials and possibilities; the rest would depend on the complexity of overall factors.
Everything has been written in the stars, many would say. The life is, in a way, predestined.
However, it does not mean it lack uncertainty and flexibility. After all, we do not know what will happen next.
Astrological readings do not tell us this and that will happen for certain.
Instead, it help us realize what might happen in the future, by helping us better to know who we are.
Once we realize who we are, it will be easier for us to thread our life path.
Much can be learned from a natal chart. A proper birth chart interpretation tells about the complexity of one’s personality and life, helping one bring into awareness their traits, be it flaws or positive qualities, talents, potentials, capacities, weaknesses.
It help us become aware of the exchange of energy with other people and with the whole world and cosmos.
Natal chart help us see what we normally would never think of. It will open an exciting and colorful field of one’s life path.
Asteroids in Astrology
Horoscopes and astrology are commonly being mistakenly taken as one and the same.
However, it is not like that. Astrology is complex and vast, it is the science of the stars, divided into many fields and branches.
Horoscope is an integral part of astrology. It literally translates to the ’observance of time’.
We are mostly interested into individual, personal horoscopes. In that case, the ’observance of time’ relates to the time of one’s birth.
Personal horoscopes are presented in the form of natal charts, schemes of planetary distribution at the precise moment of one’s birth.
As we have mentioned, according to astrology, planetary position defines our main personality traits etc.
Traditionally, only five planets were taken as astrological ones, plus the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, which are, in astrological terms, also considered planets.
Therefore, in traditional astrology, there were seven.
The three planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto were added later.
However, in recent times (recent, in comparison to discovery of traditional planets), many other celestial bodies have been incorporated into astrological charts.
Asteroids are one of those. Discovered at the beginning of the nineteenth century, asteroids entered astrology in by the end of the next one.
There are many of them, but four asteroids are of great importance, when it comes to astrological readings.
These four are named after four ancient female deities: Juno, Pallas, Vesta and Ceres.
Asteroids were included into astrological interpretations during the period of great social and cultural changes; for this reason, they were associated with the feminine principle in the first place.
Until then, there were only two ’female’ planets.
Before asteroids’ inclusion, only Venus and Moon were associated with the femininity.
Asteroids in astrology tell about feminine archetypes and about the feminine principle in each individual.
They are associated with the attributes of four goddesses, ancient deities found within the Greek and Roman pantheon.
Each of the deities carries attributes associated with a particular feminine archetype.
Let us see what Juno is about and how it manifests when in the field of Gemini.
Juno in Astrology
Astrological meaning and purpose of Juno derives from the mythology of Juno the goddess.
Juno is the Roman counterpart of Hera, the wife of Zeus (Jupiter in Rome), the ruler of Olympus. Hera and Zeus were the supreme deities of the Olympian pantheon.
Hera was much appreciated by the ancients, as the great governess, the guardian of the sacred matrimonial oaths.
Hero was considered the Queen of Heaven, the goddess of marriage, fertility and reproduction, the threefold goddess of the Moon.
Hera was associated with nurture and nourishment; cow and her milk were considered sacred symbols of the deity.
In Roman mythology, Hera/Juno had similar attributes and was considered the goddess of childbirth and of married women.
The archetype of Hera embodies both the dominant and the dominated women, both characteristics derive from the complex mythology of Hera and Zeus relationship.
In mythology, although powerful, beautiful and loving, Hera was also humiliated and cheated on.
Hera remained the lifetime partner of Zeus, despite the turbulent relationship they had. Some of the traits of the Hera archetype are jealousy and vengefulness, though.
The archetype of Hera is dominated by the need to bind to a partner, to get married and to preserve the marriage.
Hera archetype is inclined towards finding a successful, well-known, high status partner, at all costs; remember, Zeus and Hera were the supreme couple.
All these characteristics and attributes are seen in the astrological Hera, that is, astrological asteroid Juno.
Asteroid Juno represents the part of our being that is tightly bound to our romantic partner.
In contrast to Ceres, who puts children before everything else, Juno puts the partner before even children. Juno will never leave her partner, despite his adultery and other misdeeds.
Juno is associated with the need to have a notable partner and a high-status marriage; reputation is of great importance, so Juno sees to preserve the marriage at all costs.
In astrological charts, Juno indicates the partner we actually need and whom we will be with.
Juno does not represent the partner we think we should have – Venus and Mars are responsible for such inclinations, but the one our being deeply needs.
While Venus and Mars tell about the type of a person we believe could be our perfect match, Juno goes beyond that and reveals what our soul, body and mind actually strive for.
Juno tells us about our best match, operating on a much deeper level than the aforementioned two.
