Recently, I was asked “how important Juno really is”, to which my response was, “…as important as you want it to be”. Like most things in astrology, this is very subjective. Many astrologers enjoy incorporating the use of asteroids in readings, interpretations and forecasts. Some don’t. Personally, I only use a handful of asteroids (the “main” ones) in any reading or interpretation I do, Juno included.
Juno is the “marriage” asteroid in astrology. It can show the partner needed for marriage in one’s chart. The thing is, it represents the type of partner someone needs, as opposed to wants. There’s a big difference there. Some have told me that they can’t “relate” to their Juno, saying that this isn’t what they’re looking for in a relationship. Well, you’re probably not looking deep enough within yourself. It’s time to put yourself aside, ego and all, and think about exchanging the words “til death do us part,” with another. Who are they? What qualities must this person have, to keep you satisfied for a lifetime? Juno isn’t for casual dating; it is for life. It is marriage.
