The asteroids, or as they are sometimes called minor planets, represent celestial bodies from the inner Solar system.
Asteroids are remains of rocks left from the early formation of our Solar system, which happened around 4.6 billion years ago.
Most of the currently known 1.1 billion asteroids orbit around the Sun between Mars and Jupiter in the so called “main asteroid belt”.
Because they are remnants of rocks, they vary in size. Some are just several meters in diameter, and others are over 500 km in size, like the asteroid Vesta.
Asteroids usually have uneven and irregular shape and have dents and craters on their surface. Some asteroids have a moon or several moons.
Most are composed of clay and silicate rocks, or nickel-iron. Their composition depends on their distance from the Sun during the time when they were formed.
During the period of human evolution, asteroids have hit the surface of the Earth multiple times, influencing the Earth’s geological history as well as the evolution of life.
The first ever discovered asteroid was Ceres, and it was discovered in the year 1801.
Some of the first asteroids ever discovered carry the names of important goddesses from antiquity, and Juno is one of those asteroids, first discovered in 1804.
Juno in myth
Juno carries the name of an important Roman goddess, who was also a queen because she was married to the king god, a supreme Roman deity, the god Jupiter.
She was the goddess ruler of marriage and long term relationships.
She was represented as a respectable woman, a faithful and devoted wife despite the constant cheating of her husband. Jupiter was known for the many affairs he had.
Juno was the image of a perfect wife who was loyal to her husband even though he wasn’t worth the effort.
She was also considered one of the protectors of the Roman state and the city of Rome.
Juno in astrology
Juno is an important asteroid in astrology and should be always considered during relationship analysis.
Juno rules emotional attachment, long term relationships, marriage, and serious commitment in general.
Juno is considered to have some of the nature of Venus and Mars, and Libra and Scorpio.
She rules commitment, possible commitment issues, making compromises in a relationship, challenging partnerships, loyalty, and cheating.
Its placement in the natal chart can show us the potential areas of life where we should be more balanced and where we might experience some issues.
Juno also shows the areas where we require respect, and we tend to feel easily offended and sensitive.
By analyzing Juno we can discover the person’s preferences regarding long term partnerships, marriage, and their ideal partner’s traits.
While Venus and Mars depict our ideal partners from a physical viewpoint, Juno describes their ideal traits from a commitment and long term potential viewpoint.
The sign where Juno is placed in the natal chart can describe our ideal partner and its traits, but also the traits we couldn’t accept or tolerate in a long term partnership.
Juno’s influence is more prominent in charts where it makes significant aspects (conjunctions) to the person’s personal planets, like the Sun or the Moon, or their Ascendant.
This person is more influenced by this asteroid than someone who doesn’t have any aspects to their Juno in their natal chart.
When Juno is prominent in synastry analysis between the charts of two people, this can be a strong indicator of a significant relationship between them.
This is especially true when Juno in both charts are making an aspect (especially conjunction), or when Juno from one chart makes a conjunction to the personal planets or angles of the other person’s chart.
Strong Juno synastry is often evident in charts of married couples or couples in long term relationships.
Challenging Juno aspects in synastry can point out to conflicts and disagreements between two people as well as the obstacles to a long term union between them.
Juno in the chart can reveal the person’s feelings of inadequacy, where they feel vulnerable, or insecure.

When someone hurts them, they usually erase this person from their lives as if they’ve never existed.
The vengeful types (and there are quite few of them among this sign) won’t stop until the person who has done them wrong is destroyed.
