Asteroids play a very important role in modern astrology.
This type of heavenly body was not known until the nineteenth century and asteroids entered the field of astrology even more recently.
Juno is one of the most important asteroids in astrology.
Named after the supreme goddess of Ancient Greek and Roman mythology, the asteroid Juno represents a set of characteristic values and potentials that could be found in each one of us.
Astrology is a complex field, consisting of many branches and associated with various other paths.
In the past, astrology was another of the scholars’ disciplines, not a pseudo-science as it is widely known today.
Many people question the reliability of astrology as a whole, oversimplifying it and associating it with short daily horoscope predictions that are sometimes not even provided by astrologers.
A proper astrological reading requires a lot of time, understanding, and work.
Astrology is, of course, much more than your day-to-day zodiac sign predictions.
Astrology is, after all, not that much about predictions of concrete events, but about our given potentials and the possibility of manifesting them.
This ‘science of the stars’, as its name literally tells, could be the oldest of sciences on our planet.
It originates from ancient times and old Middle Eastern cultures, at least that is what we know so far. Since the earliest days of our civilization, we have been looking for answers in the stars.
Could stars really tell us about our purpose in life, about our life paths? Yes and no.
Astrological readings will not predict our experiences nor they would tell us: this is what we are supposed to be. Astrological readings could help us find the answers by ourselves.
In that sense, astrological readings offer us insights into what we could be and what we could do.
Sometimes, we are not aware of our own capacities and we need signs, revelations, or simply a lot of experience.
A proper, detailed, well-researched astrological reading could be of great help, as guidance in life.
Planets and planetary movement affect our individual lives, as well as our lives as human beings overall.
Planetary movements and placements define who we are at our core, affecting our growth and development, our relations with other people, and so on.
If you would like to get a personalized astrological reading, that is, the interpretation of your natal chart, it is advised to get it from a qualified and experienced astrologer, someone who is deeply in the field, both in theory and practice.
Asteroids in Astrology
The natal chart, the place where we will find our asteroids here and, specifically, Juno, is like a heavenly identification paper or something unique like that.
Yes, each natal chart is completely unique and there is no way two charts would ever become the same.
Personalized natal charts are based on a person’s date and time of birth.
According to astrology, the placement of planets at the time of your birth determines your potential, traits, and more.
The interaction and exchange of planetary energies shape us and our lives, for a decent part.
Besides planets you are probably familiar with, there are other heavenly bodies to consider when it comes to natal chart interpretation.
We talk about asteroids. Discovered only recently, in comparison to the planets known in ancient times, asteroids brought something new.
The placement of asteroids within a natal chart offers another piece of the puzzle.
Knowing their placement helps us understand ourselves even better, for they add meaning to the totality of our natal chart.
The four most important asteroids are associated with feminine energy, named after great deities of the ancient past, the four beautiful and mighty goddesses, known both in Greek and Roman mythology.
The four asteroids are known as Juno, Vesta, Pallas, and Ceres and they carry the energy and the attributes of goddesses Juno/Hera, Vesta/Hestia, Minerva/Athena Pallas, and Ceres/Demeter.
Each one of them represents a very specific feminine archetype.
It is always good to remember that each individual possesses both the feminine and the masculine principle; the amount and distribution vary, of course.
Before asteroids were introduced into astrology, there were only two planets associated with the feminine principle and they were the luminary feminine Moon and passionate, lovely Venus.
Juno in Astrology
Juno is, as we have mentioned, one of the four major astrological asteroids. Its name is that of Juno in Roman mythology, that is, Hera in Greek mythology.
Juno/Hera, as you probably know is the queen-goddess, the supreme feminine deity of the ancients.
The deity of motherhood, childbirth, and fertility, mothers and married women was greatly admired by the ancient people, especially women and even more especially, married women.
She was the protector of marriage and family union, a queen-mother, as well.
The mythological background of Juno could help us understand the role of Juno within the natal chart much better.
According to Greek mythology, Hera was the wife of Zeus, the supreme god of the Olympian pantheon.
Zeus was in love with Hera, but the goddess did not want to accept his love if he was not going to marry her.
The couple became the supreme divine couple of the ancient pantheon.
However, Zeus, known for his lustful nature, was not always loyal to Hera and he cheated on her.
Even though Hera knew about it and was jealous, she did not leave him.
Her role as a queen-mother, the supreme feminine deity, the protector of family union and marital oaths did not allow her to break the relationship, in a way.
Hera represents feminine strength, the sacrifice.
Although she suffered humiliation, she did not grow weak and Zeus would always come back to her.
Her power is incredible, even though she experienced mistreatment. To her, family is what matters the most, as well as stable relationships.
Juno/Hera is the goddess associated with endurance, especially when it comes to relationships.
Juno the asteroid is associated with the sign of Libra and it has to do with partnerships, bonds, and long-term relationships.
In natal charts, Juno represents our potential to meet the person we would be ready to stay with for long.
Juno represents the partner and life companion we should be with, not necessarily the one we desire.
There is a big difference between amazement, passion, and desire on one side and a true bond, on the other.
Although there are some similarities with another goddess associated with romantic relationships, Venus, Juno is, in that sense, a deeper one.
Keywords associated with asteroid Juno are trust and adultery, long-lasting bonds, endurance, persistence, sacrifice, humiliation and jealousy, mistreatment, even abuse, compatibility, marriage, faithfulness, and ability to overcome crises in relationships.
