The Story of Juno
In order to understand the significance of a Juno asteroid transit, it is important to know who Juno is and what her archetype represents. Juno was the Roman goddess and wife of the king of gods, Jupiter. Juno is considered to be one of the most faithful and ideal archetypes in relationships because she stood by Jupiter despite his philandering and cheating ways. The energy of Juno is complex because although she is“ideal” it is only because she tolerated what some would consider poor behavior from her husband. On her own, Juno is the patroness and protector of Rome.
We can also look to Juno in astrology to identify the traits we desire in a long-term partner as well as what actions can be taken to support the longevity of a relationship.
When Marriage Goes Friendly
Under the energy of Juno in Aquarius, there is a desire to have a partnership with someone who is not only a lover and a committed partner but also a good friend. Aquarius is not the most romantic and/or passionate sign traditionally. The energy of Juno in Aquarius tends to be more cerebral with an attraction to the sapiosexual. So, under this transit, a desire for more mental stimulation from long-term partners is noted.
Juno in Aquarius likes to keep things light and unencumbered, emotions and passionate displays are not attractive for a long-term relationship. In fact, the emotional could some uncomfortable at this time.
Juno in Aquarius: The Ideal Mate
As Juno transits through Aquarius, we may be more interested in forming long-term partnerships with people who offer freedom and independence with a heavy serving of the unique. This is the energy of seeking partners with their own lives as Aquarius energy does best with relationships that aren’t high on emotional relatedness and dependency. Juno in Aquarius seeks a partner that has a sense of self and identity and is not afraid to show it. With the influence of Uranus energy, there is the potential to desire long-term relationships with people that are not our usual types. This can happen because of the intellectual connections where the physicality of the person is not as important as the mental stimulation.
Given the nature of Aquarius energy as a fixed experience, while there is an appreciation of the uniqueness and differences that are inherent within the ideal mate, ultimately a solid long-term commitment will be formed with a partner with the same values, perceptions, and desires.
Exploring Relationship Insecurities
Insecurities and relationships related to the expression of Aquarius energy are highlighted under the Juno in Aquarius transit. Given that Aquarius is not the most emotionally connected sign, there could be insecurities related to wanting an interdependent relationship with a more individualistic partner. In some cases, jealousies related to spending time with friends and other acquaintances outside of the relationship are possible. Because Aquarius is a freedom-loving sign, some may encounter a desire for “space”…particularly if there are experiences of feeling smothered or trapped. Insecurities could arise if a long-term partner desires space in the relationship. Due to the unexpected energy of Aquarius, there could be a “break” in the relationship due to a desire for more space and freedom.
It’s important to remember that Juno in Aquarius is transiting energy unless, of course, this particular aspect is in a natal chart. If insecurities are encountered related to Aquarian themes, it is important to address why these insecurities exist. Perhaps the person is not the ideal partner after all, or just maybe the insecurities can be easily addressed. Remember, Juno was considered “ideal” because of the behavior that she accepted from Jupiter. Assessment of whether the energy of Juno in Aquarius is being harnessed for the benefit of all in the relationship is important.
Ultimately, what is considered the ideal partner varies. With Juno in Aquarius, the ideals and traits of being free, independent, and different from all the rest are what spurs the energy of deep commitment.
Don’t go throwing out a partner at this time because they don’t necessarily give you what you desire. If you really want to know what type of partner you desire and would like on a long-term basis, it is best to get a natal astrology chart constructed by a professional astrologer who can provide information on your specific Juno sign and house placement.
