In my previous article, I examined how the planets Venus and Mars reveal qualities of your potential mates who are best suited for you based on their placements on your birth chart.
In this second-part series, I examine the key to your everlasting love by looking at the Asteroid called Juno. Juno on your birth chart is one key to success in a long term relationship. It describes your style of intimacy and compatibility in the context of a serious relationship or marriage. To get your personal birth chart, click here.
When you look at your birth chart and see this symbol:
This symbol represents Juno.
While Venus and Mars tell us about who you date or find attractive, Juno reveals to us who you mate or ultimately end up settling down with. Many times, in life, who you date will not always be who you will eventually marry. Here is where we examine the role Juno plays in your marriage and long-term union.
In summary, the keywords for Juno are:
- lifelong partnership
- vows and promises
- domination and submission issues
Note: Juno is more about love connection between you and your partner, not so much about commitment per se. When we look at commitment and devotion, we examine the asteroid Vesta. But that’s a great article for another time.
Before we go into identifying your spouse or finding the key to your everlasting love, here are some facts about Juno.
What is Juno?
Juno (AKA Hera) is an asteroid named after the Roman goddess, who was the wife of Jupiter (AKA Zeus).
In mythology, Juno marries her twin brother Jupiter after she was seduced by him. She endured a marriage that was plagued with ongoing power struggles and infidelity. Jupiter had numerous love and sexual affairs but Juno remained fiercely loyal as she believed in fairness and equal partnerships. But she was also vindictive and filled with envy.
In Roman culture, Juno was the goddess of marriage and childbirth, the protector of pregnant women ensuring the safety of the unborn child. She was also the protector of money and wealth.
In astronomy, Juno is one of the largest irregular-shaped asteroids in the main asteroid belt with a diameter of about 233 kilometres (about 15 times smaller than the moon). It was first observed and discovered by German astronomer Karl Harding on 1 September 1804.
In astrology, Juno indicates the type of marriage or long-term partner you seek and the kind of spouse you will most likely be. Juno’s placement on your birth chart in its respective zodiac sign and/or house reveals your ideal marriage partner and the spouse you will be to your partner. By connecting Juno to other planets using the aspects on the birth chart, we are able to determine one’s compatibility with another person in question. How Juno is expressed in a person’s love life depends on the entire birth chart, the past and present lifestyle of the individual, and the decision they make with their lives.
Juno in Aries or the 1st House
You are someone who values transparency and devotion in a marriage union or a long-term relationship. To you, your partner must put you first as a priority and you simply find it hard to accept being in the second place in priority within a marriage.
For this, you need to understand that your partner probably need space, some independence, and support. And therefore, by not expressing his or her love to you doesn’t mean that the relationship is in trouble. Rather, your partner is one who is likely to be an action taker. After all, action speaks louder than words and you may expect some form of Acts of Service as a love language in your partner.
You would go to great lengths and take emotional risks to keep your partner desiring you more and as a result, this may mislead others to think that you’re clingy even when you’re not, but there are other ways to show that you care.
To you, you are clear about your love interest from the get-go and your passionate desire to be in a long-term relationship may lead others to perceive you as the more dominant partner in the union.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who does not mind being your equal or compromising to you most of the time. Your partner has to be someone who can stomach your bluntness and abrupt behaviour from time to time.
Juno in Taurus or the 2nd House
You are someone who values emotional stability and material security in a long-term relationship, and for this, your partner must fulfil these criteria in order to be with you for the longer haul. That’s your top priority.
You crave for a sense of home and family in an ideal mate and someone who deeply appreciates aesthetics, and at the same time, being sensual and indulgent. You are also very patient and tolerant with your partner even though you may be slow to warm up at the beginning of the relationship
If there is one dealbreaker for you, it would be betrayal. Faithfulness and devotion is something you value a lot because they represent long-term stability. As such, others sometimes view you as rather possessive and sometimes jealous, but all you ever desire is to love and be loved.
You have high standards in your choice of partner and because of this, you want to ensure that you are investing your time and energy on the right person who is truly a keeper. Learn to be generous with your resources and be ready to let go of past hurts so that you can move on to fulfil your desire towards that union that fulfils most of your criteria.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who is faithful and devoted, and also not afraid to have fun and indulge in the finer things in life. Free-spirited partners are not your type.
Juno in Gemini or the 3rd House
You are someone who desires some intellectual jostling in a marriage or a long-term relationship. A partner who is a good communicator and matches your high frequency well is definitely an ideal suitor for the long haul.
In addition, the partner who you will likely settle with is somebody who is consistently inspiring, knowledgeable and interesting, but most importantly, he or she has to stimulate your mind and is vulnerable enough to share his or her thoughts with you. You definitely hate to be ignored and are likely to feel threatened when your partner disrespects or disagrees with your point of view.
You express your desire for communication and commitment yet do not mind some degree of distance in a relationship. On the other hand, you can fall in love and be committed to an idea of a union which may not be totally aligned with your current long-term relationship.
When you are triggered by envy, you rationalise your feelings and talk your way out of being upset with your partner.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who is smart and intuitive enough to empathise with your needs and fulfil them without being told what to do. The partner has to be diplomatic, openminded and communicative in a relationship.
Juno in Cancer or the 4th House
You are someone traditional and down to earth and are likely to find a partner who shares this same trait as you. You partner is most likely going to be someone who is family-oriented when it comes to marriage.
You look for sensitivity in your partner, someone who can nurture you and hold space for your emotional needs so that you feel safe with him or her in this long-term relationship. Emotional safety is of utmost importance to you and your partner has to be sensitive about your feelings.
The sense of home and emotional security with your partner is a long term dream that you have besides being committed and devoted. You can be easily hurt and provoked in a relationship, and thus you spend your time and energy looking for a partner who can give you that sense of safety and a place called home.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who wants to build a home and a family, sensitive and empathetic, as well as a person who is true and devoted in a long-term relationship.
Juno in Leo or the 5th House
You are looking for a life partner who can keep the sparks and passion going in a relationship. There is a likelihood that you would lose interest or become bored easily if you feel the other person is loving you any less or giving you lesser attention over time.
To you, you are a lover of attention and compliments. Your partner has to be someone who is unafraid to display his or her affection in public spaces and also compliment you for your looks, dressing sense and demeanour.
You love someone who is creative when it comes to dating and becomes very involved in your life when you are in a long-term relationship. At the same time, you value a partner who shows you respect and courtesy, and even praise you in front of their friends and loved ones.
While getting attention is important to you, you can be humorous and carefree in your style of being in a relationship because you tend to be attracted to romantic flings or partners with no strings attached at first. This may give others the impression that you are too casual when in fact, you may be just taking your time to decide on being in a long-term relationship with the options you have.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who is able to keep the attraction going in a relationship and is emotionally secure.
Juno in Virgo or the 6th House
You desire someone who is decisive, knows what he or she wants and takes action to make it happen. You value your health and fitness and expect the same form your partner. Physical fitness in a partner is an attractive trait to you.
You are also a perfectionist when it comes to marriage or long-term relationship because you tend to be overly critical or nit-picky when in search for a suitor. This goes way back even during the days when you have only started dating. You scrutinise your potential mate and this can be your undoing if you are too picky.
You look for small ways to show how much you care and your partner has to see this side of you — that helpful, resourceful and nurturing side of your logical personality. When you love someone, you want to support them with whatever you can give just to help them succeed in life.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who does not take you for granted yet meets your criteria of an ideal partner. This person may also be someone who is analytical and emotionally stable.
Juno in Libra or the 7th House
You are looking for a partner who has deep connection with you, someone who can charm you off your feet and intuitively knows what you want without you having to say it. You are someone who value harmony and balance in a relationship, thus your partner has to be someone who views you as his or her equal and not wind up competing with you in the union.
When you’re committed in a long-term relationship or marriage, you devote yourself fully and will not have interest in anyone else. You only have your eyes on your partner. However, if your partner cheats, you may rationalise your feelings and the situation but still remain devoted till the bitter end.
For you, it is hard to end a relationship because given your optimistic nature, you tend to focus on improving yourself, your appearances and the relationship.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone devoted and only has attention for you as a sole partner in a marriage or long-term relationship.
Juno in Scorpio or the 8th House
Your long-term relationships are intense and usually based on powerful attraction. You tend to look for partners who can take you to the depth of desires and commitment in the union. When you have the support of your partner, you feel more in control of yourself.
The long-term relationships that you find yourself in are likely to be ones that are transformative and have a powerful effect on your life. It either changes you from inside out or shaped the way you perceive the world around you when you are in that relationship or marriage.
One thing is for certain, there will be triggers of jealousy within the union, such that either you or your partner may not want to let go or forgive, which can lead to resentment. Do your best to stay away from creating jealous feelings or situations where envy can be triggered.
In addition, you are a seeker for the truth and it will bother you if you’re treated as a fool in a relationship. You dislike a partner who undermines your intelligence and deceive you.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who helps you or becomes a catalyst in your life, yet one whom you are likely to be strongly and sexually attracted to.
Juno in Sagittarius or the 9th House
You are someone who love the idea of a passionate and committed relationship but does not like to be confined and restricted in a long-term union. You find it stifling and you need your space, fun and adventure
Optimistic and independent, you tend to see the positive traits about your partner and would usually overlook the petty conflicts that arise in the relationship. You are forgiving at most times but you will not like it when your partner disrespects or betrays you.
You are likely to settle with a partner who can match your upbeat energy and to support your need to learn and master some skill sets in life. You desire someone who is spontaneous, fun, adventurous and expressive like you. You need space and a listening ear who can let you express your opinions freely without judging you.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone non-judgemental and one who loves to travel, have fun, is inquisitive, and very comfortable being alone by him or herself.
Juno in Capricorn or the 10th House
You desire a partner who can give you the feeling that both of you are moving in same the direction towards stability and that both of you have a long-term plan for the relationship. There needs to be a structure, an order to this union.
You are looking for someone mature and serious in relationships and your partner may also expect the same thing. Career and public status is very important to you at work and even when you are in a long-term relationship. Therefore, you place high expectations on your life partner.
Not only does your life partner needs to be financially stable and committed, he or she needs to be of good social standing. On the extreme end, because status and reputation mean a lot to you, you may find yourself stuck in a relationship that promises security and fame but lacking in other aspects such as emotional warmth and physical intimacy.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who would rather fix the relationship that is damaged than to end the relationship. Tradition and consistency are what the other person value as well.
Juno in Aquarius or the 11th House
You are someone who desires commitment in a relationship but also want to experience some moments of unpredictability. Your partner may turn out to be rather different from your usual social circle and when you meet this person, convention and tradition are some things you may want to discard out of the window.
There will also be ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ as well as extreme highs and lows in the relationship. Sometimes, you may be highly independent while at times, you fall head over heels in love with your spouse or partner. This abrupt and unpredictable behaviour in the relationship may cause confusions and feelings of insecurity in either one of you.
You love your space and autonomy, and your partner allows you the freedom to be yourself without imposing their values on you. Treating you like a possession is a big turn off for you and the same thing goes for your partner too.
When you’re in a long-term relationship, you require your spouse of life partner to share his or her future intentions with you and to also share common values. At times, you may need to check in regularly with your partner because it is easy for both of you to drift apart from the romantic connection when pursuing your individual goals in life.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who is able to keep you interested by being unpredictable and probably a little eccentric.
Juno in Pisces or the 12th House
You take marriage vows seriously. You tend to view yourself as a healer to your life partner. At the same time, you long for a partner who can give you room to grow and be a true romantic. You are devoted to your partner but desires space for yourself because you do not like the idea of being caged in by the marriage or the exclusivity of the relationship. Well-defined boundaries upset you and so you tend to find it difficult to reject something that may not necessarily be good for you in the long run. You may be prone to getting stuck in an abusive relationship because you’re highly sensitive to criticisms and are afraid of being rejected by your partner.
Potential mate’s key attributes: Someone who is soft and sensitive and can give you the support you need in life but you need to learn how to develop assertiveness as one of your strong attributes.
The above are fine examples of Juno as an indicator for spotting your potential spouse, including the kind of spouse you will be to your life partner.
Will there be a third-part series to this work? Perhaps. We might just be looking at another love-related indicator and how it will be of great significance to your love life.
