The Significance Of Juno in Astrology

The vows of for better and worse definitely coincide with Juno energy. As the marriage asteroid, Juno in our natal astrology energies gives us an idea of the type of partner we desire for marriage and/or a long-term relationship. While Venus is about the superficial attractions of love and relationship, Juno is the partner that we want to commit to for the long haul.
A Fiery, Self-Starting Partnership
With Juno in Aries, we are likely to want direct action from our long-term committed partners. In order to feel that a partner is worth investing in the long term, we want someone that shows via their actions that the partnership is moving forward. Given that Aries energy is impulsive and willing to take risks, there could be a tendency to move quickly which could even show up as getting married on impulse…elopements anyone?
The only issue is that while Aries energy is quick to move a relationship forward, it doesn’t have the staying power. In relation to Juno, this could result in partnerships that begin just as quickly as they begin. This energy could also show up as a preference for partners that are willing to take risks.
Attracted to Aries-Like Partners
With Juno transiting Aries, there is a preference for partners that exhibit Aries qualities…for better or worse. Risk-taking, impulsivity, courage, fearlessness, and boldness are quite attractive when considering partners for the long term. If our partners don’t usually possess these traits, true to the nature of Aries, we could be a bit frustrated. We want to deal with our partners directly, forwardly, and with intention. We want partners that are motivated themselves while motivating us. Traditionally, Aries doesn’t stick around when discontent. However, the Juno in Aries transit is temporary, so it is important to not make any rash partnership decisions that we could later regret…especially when Juno moves into the more stable, grounded energy of Taurus.
Up For The Chase
In general, the energy of Aries is that of the hunter. Juno in Aries is excellent for spicing up long-term relationships by creating the desire to chase our partners. We could feel that we are dating our spouses and long-term partners all over again! Aries energy enjoys being pursued or the pursuer…like a cat chasing a mouse.

This Juno in Aries transit urges us to take action to revive the spark that keeps a long-term relationship alive that lets committed partners know that there is still an interest. Remember, Aries is ruled by Mars which governs sexual attraction. Making space to honor the innate attraction within a committed relationship is recommended.
Taking The Lead
Initiative is another trait that is desired during the Juno in Aries transit. Aries energy doesn’t want to wait for anyone for anything. There is a certain level of independence and boldness that allows this energy to strike out on its own. Even within a partnership, the energy of self-starting is important.

This is a great time to discuss how to be in a relationship that offers the independence that allows for a committed bond.

What this energy can teach us is how all partners can take initiative to solidify a committed relationship.
Clashing At Times

Beware of Impulsivity
Rashness and impulsivity have to be acknowledged with the Juno in Aries transit. In fact, this energy could create the desire to move beyond relationships or start new committed relationships.

If you are interested in starting a committed relationship, don’t head to Las Vegas for that elopement at this time! Do you really know this potential spouse? Do you see yourself with this person for the long term? Don’t allow your sexual attraction and interest to propel you into a relationship on impulse. Risks are great, but when it comes to commitments, a partner that aligns with your life is important. If you meet someone during the Juno in Aries transit, enjoy the courting and forgo the commitment at this time as a fast commitment could be something that you regret.
Ultimately, Juno in Aries transit allows us to be very direct with ourselves about what we want in a long-term partner. It’s important to remember that to be in a committed relationship with others we must first be able to be in a relationship with ourselves. Juno in Aries prompts us to get selfish about what we want in a committed partnership to ensure that we are ultimately partnered with someone that has the character traits, intentions, values, etc. that are a direct reflection of ourselves.
