On April 12 Juno will go retrograde in freedom-loving Sagittarius, calling into question our most serious partnerships, usually of a contractual nature. Juno is the asteroid goddess of commitment, as befitting the long-suffering wife of Zeus. She represents the spouse, business partner, and creative associate, and when in retrograde can make us all question our attachments. Keep reading to see how your sign will fare this Juno retrograde.
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
What does it mean to honor your obligations, contractual or otherwise? More specifically, have you stuck to your side of an agreement? As Juno goes retrograde in your fellow fire sign Sagittarius, you may find your ethics called into question, possibly on a public platform. If you wish to avoid a negative impact on your reputation, be sure to follow through on all agreements, regardless of whether or not your heart’s still in it.
A Taurean’s word is their bond, and they expect others to follow suit. You can’t bear a broken promise or dishonest dealings, and as a result you’ve acquired a discerning shrewdness. Right now you’re struggling with a proposal that could make or break your future prospects. In many ways, this is the decision of a lifetime. Trust your instincts, Taurus, as they seldom lead you astray.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Try as you may to avoid mixing business with pleasure, your bright social nature frequently finds you entangled in such dalliances. Juno doesn’t just frown on this behavior, but asks if the outcome is even worth it? Can you really have it all, or is it time to sacrifice one for the other? As tempting as it is to indulge in a little workplace intrigue, think of this retrograde as a Proceed With Caution sign.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You have a keen eye for insincerity, and for all your lunar sensitivity don’t suffer fools gladly. Someone may be trying to pull one over on you contractually, through the use of complicated and archaic lingo or omission of crucial information. Make sure to read the fine print, and articulate any concerns upfront. Your intuition is seldom off-mark, Cancer, so go with your gut.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
As any good leader will tell you, you can’t be everything to everyone and still be true to yourself. Cosmic lion that you are, you hate letting the other side down, and will absolutely stretch yourself as thin as possible for the sake of appeasing everyone’s wishes. Juno’s retrograde is fellow fiery Sag is urging you to put yourself first right now, and take a break from answering to so many demands.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Methodical to the end, you prepare for every possible curveball well in advance of any actual threat. This tactic has served you well in business, but may not be the best course of action when it comes to matters closer to home. A partner, family member, or close friend may approach you with an idea that’s worth considering, even if you initially balk at their proposal.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Symbolized by the ever-balanced cosmic scales, Libra demands fairness in all dealings. You no more want the lion’s share than you wish to see it line the pockets of greedy opportunists, and nothing turns you off faster than an unspoken ulterior motive. While Virgo seeks an order of checks and balances, you insist on considerations being made for all parties. This is hardly a weakness, Libra, and Juno is poised to reward you for your integrity.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
While water signs typically loathe having to read the fine print and pore over pedantic details, you love the nitty-gritty of securing your side of an agreement. While not exactly prone to double-dealing, cunning Scorpio can’t resist an opportunity to get ahead, even if it means breaking out those deadly pincers. Be careful who you try to pull one over on this retrograde, however, as it could spell your own defeat.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
With Juno moving retrograde in your sign on the 12th, you may feel like you’re being nagged right out of all your hoped-for prospects. On the contrary, Sag, you’re simply being asked to pay attention to the details, as you could be overlooking a great deal more than you realize. In your impatience to strike out on the next adventure, make sure you aren’t signing any dotted lines that could prove detrimental to your plans.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
It’s not easy for you to switch gears and slow down long enough to savor the fruits of your labor. As far as you’re concerned, you need to keep working to keep that fruit coming. While Juno isn’t the traditional planetary spokesperson for “stop and smell the roses,” that’s exactly what you’re being called to do this retrograde period. Take pride in what you’ve earned, Capricorn, and share a bit of that proverbial wealth with those who stuck by your side every step of the way.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
If at last you feel like things are finally gaining for you in momentum, don’t be thrown by the infamous retrograde wrench. During this period what feels like a sizable bump in the road is really just a heads-up warning to make sure you’ve got your bases covered. Re-read any contracts before signing, and if you contest to something speak up now while it can still be amended.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The ethereal fish can’t swim fast enough away from earthly obligations, but that won’t stop the latter from catching up to them all the same. As much as you hate engaging in contractual talks and negotiations, an important opportunity is coming your way that may require you to step out of your dreamy comfort zone and get down to business.
