Asteroids are newcomers in astrology! This type of heavenly objects was discovered quite late, in comparison to planets we knew about since ancient times.
Nevertheless, they play an interesting and important role in astrology.
Before we would speak more about asteroids and their astrological place and role, let us talk a bit about astrology itself. Is it reliable?
What does astrology actually tell? Can it predict the future?
Why it has been so popular throughout the history?
Astrology has been both praised and cursed, throughout history, its answers taken either as a rule or as a complete nonsense.
However, no doubt that it has been around us since old times.
Many of the greatest and the wisest people of the past relied on astrological readings.
Astrology studies the influence of planetary movement over our earthly lives.
According to astrology, it affects our destiny, it shapes it up.
If we look into other fields of research, we will definitely find some similarities and even the same conclusions.
However, astrology is not an exact science; moreover, it is labeled a pseudo science, in our times.
Astrology does not provide us with information set in stone. It speaks rather of potentials, capacities, possible outcomes, tendencies.
Astrology offers valuable information on who we are deep inside, for it can reveal some traits and potentials we might not be aware of.
We can read those from personal horoscopes, that is, from natal charts.
Natal or birth chart is a diagram, a scheme representing the exact placement of planets ate the time you came to this life.
According to astrology, this placement defines who you are and it plays a major role when it comes to your main traits, but also potentials.
That said, not everything we see in a natal chart will definitely manifest in the way we expect it to develop.
Life is not a strict set of rules, but a turbulent journey, sometime awesome, sometimes not that enjoyable.
Knowing about the exact placement of specific celestial bodies can help you much better understand your own self, the people and the world around you.
Let us begin with the asteroids – the less known factor in personal horoscopes.
Asteroids in Astrology
Most of you are probably familiar with eight planets and two astrological luminaries, that is, with Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and the Sun and the Moon.
You also know about zodiac signs and houses.
However, these are accompanied with certain other astrological chart elements and other celestial bodies.
Asteroids being one of them. Asteroids, as we have mentioned, were included in astrology pretty late.
Asteroids were discovered at the very beginning of the nineteenth century, but it was not until seventies of the twentieth century that they were introduced into the field of astrology.
Moreover, it happened during the time of great social and cultural changes, associated with the question of femininity, the position of women.
Asteroids were associated with the feminine principle precisely.
Before asteroids were included, there were only two feminine planets in astrology – Venus and the Moon.
With asteroids, it changed. Four of the asteroids deserve very special mention, with Juno being one of them.
The four major asteroids we are concerned with are named after ancient goddesses.
They are Juno, Vesta, Pallas and Ceres, that is Juno/Hera, Vesta/Hestia, Pallas Athena/Minerva, Ceres/Demeter. As you can see, these are ancient Greek and Roman deities.
In astrological sense, these asteroids embody some of the major qualities of these powerful goddesses.
They represent feminine archetypes and each has a special role within a natal chart.
Juno in Astrology
Juno is named after Roman goddess Juno, that is, Greek goddess Hera.
While there are differences between these Greek-Roman counterparts, the asteroid Juno is understood through both.
The mythology of Hera says much about the role of the asteroid Juno.
According to Greek mythology, Hera was a powerful goddesses, worshiped as a queen of gods, the supreme deity, the supreme mother, one could say.
Hera was married to Zeus, the almighty ruler of Olympian pantheon.
Zeus and Hera were the divine couple of Ancient Greek pantheon (Jupiter and Juno, in Roman) and it is precisely their marriage, which is important to understand in order to know about the role of the asteroid Juno.
The mighty god was in love with beautiful Hera, who refused his offers, unless he marries her.
While it happened, Zeus was not particularly faithful to his divine wife and Hera proved to be a particularly jealous and vengeful deity.
Their marriage was not perfect, we could say, but here is the thing – Hera did not want to leave her husband.
She was powerful and she had power over him, and vice versa. She embodies the preserver of marriage and family unity.
Hera was a goddess of married women, of marital oaths, of marriage as it is, the goddess of family, motherhood and childbirth.
Juno was admired as a protector of pregnant women and they would pray to her, to save them and their children.
When it comes to the asteroid Juno, it has much to do with mythology of Hera/Juno.
Asteroid Juno is specifically related to our relationships, that is, romantic partners.
Asteroid Juno reveals the type of a partner we truly deserve and truly need.
While we may imagine our ideal partner to be like this or that, influenced by some other astrological factors, it does not mean it is the right type of a person for us.
Juno reveals the type of the partner our being needs, on essential, core level.
It help us find the one whom we would find perfect to spend our lifetime with. Juno is the asteroid of marriage and long-term relationships, in essence.
Its placement, however, tells about the nature of our relationships in general, the one corresponding with our personality and our temperament.
The placement of Juno is a precious piece of our personality puzzle.
