Introduction To Juno In The Natal Chart

Juno glyph“And that’s what makes this a great game, is the support and the commitment that the fans give the game.”
–Nolan Ryan, Sagittarius Juno in the 9th house

Juno is most commonly known as the marriage asteroid and in myth the feminine counterpart to Zeus (Jupiter). Taken at its simplest, however, it is the mark of commitment in general. While we are most familiar with the role commitment takes in relationships, commitment is also touted as the determining factor for success in most areas of life.

In assessing your own Juno placement it is important to note not only the sign but also its house position. Juno’s sign will color the type of energy one’s commitment embodies as well as what sort of things one will deem commitment worthy. Juno’s house position represents the area of focus where one is likely to commit. Nolan Ryan serves as a very famous example of a Sagittarian, 9th house Juno. Sports and therefore baseball are Sagittarian (9th house) pursuits. With his Juno conjunct Venus his investment in the game of baseball made him a household name long beyond his actual career.

The aspects Juno makes to other planets and to the angles will flavor that commitment as well as bringing the energy of commitment to the functions of those placements. For example, an individual with Juno conjunct Venus may value constancy. Juno conjunct Mars makes for the kind of person that really “brings it” when they commit to action, because they are “all in.”

Where is your Juno and to what are you committed?

    Ooo! Very cool. My Juno is 5th House/Virgo. I am very committed to my son (fifth house) and I finally realized that romance and affection is very important to me in a relationship! I am also involved in amateur sports…lesseee…and as for Virgo, I feel like I’m finally becoming a bit more practical in honoring these needs. Something like this?

  2. 8th house Juno in Pisces, and when I learned this and what it actually meant it was a huge revelation to me. I have never truly felt like the “detached Aquarian” in relationships; in fact, I’m not even sure what that actually means. Learning that really, REALLY serious – near-spiritual level – depth in relationship and commitment is my “ideal” made me feel like I was finally coming into myself, because I had always wondered, ‘Why do I care so much? I’m not supposed to care that much – it’s so un-Aquarian of me.” ๐Ÿ™‚ Now I’m starting to get it, I think. Nice article!

  3. 4th house ,libra.My committment is to my family.My mom(libra) and my brother. In other parts of my life I’m very scared for commitments. I am very attached to them. We will never leave eachother behind…and their quality of life feels like my resposibility. Up and downs , I was also commited to my dad..and despite the abuse …I wish we could have told him we’ll wait for you..for you to heal. I hope and pray we can be a peacefilled family in a future life. Fuck just thinking about this makes me bawl;-/…
    The only ones who really matter.

    Great piece Satori!!!

    Haha it’s opposed my aries everything

  4. This is a cool article. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have Juno Scorpio 3’00 in my 5th house. It’s conjunct my North Node in Scorpio,trine my Ascendant and sextile Venus 7th conj.Desc.
    I guess I’m dedicated to life,love and the pursuit of happiness. It’s funny cause my Vertex,NN and Juno are all in my 5th house.

    My husband’s Juno is in Capricorn in the 5th house and conjunct his Vertex which is also in Capricorn.
    He loves his creative work ,he was a model maker/machinest for years,and he loves his children.

  5. hilarious. It’s at 23 degrees Scorpio, and my current partner AND my ex both have their Moon at 24 degrees Scorpio.

    ::cue twilight zone muzak::

    It’s in my 11th House and opposes my Sun. I am committed to…my hopes and dreams:)

  6. thanks guys! and LeC… exactly!
    Jilly, scary how saturn can sneak up on you like that, eh? then it speaks in its Eeyore voice and scares the crap out of you…

  7. My juno is in the 11th house in Taurus is that why I have been living alone for the past 25 years?????
    Will look at the aspects..

  8. natal juno in capricorn in the 1st
    solar return in virgo in the 8th

    i’m not sure what this explains b/c i absolutely suck at relationships. it seems the only thing i can commit to is work. i have always been more committed to and worked harder at work or job hunting than anything else. maybe it has something to do w/a very strong natal 10th house placement in libra & mars in capricorn in the 1st.

    i guess this libra didn’t get the memo that she was born in the “marriage sign” :/

      1. I’ve got Juno in the first house in Gemini! WTH does that mean? You’d think I’m committed to talking but not so much.

  9. Juno in my 4th house in Cancer… Committed to to my family and home? It’s also almost exactly conjunct my IC (within 2 minutes)… I have no idea what that means.

  10. oh grandonna, I don’t think placements doom us to anything. 11th house Taurus would be comfortable groups. perhaps it’s your moon that doesn’t like that, if it’s square. you could be committed to 11th house things, groups, hopes, wishes, without living with them (moon). ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Welcome libralicious! that solar return juno sounds interesting. you might check where your progressed juno is as well. I find that is pretty relevant for the moment. who knows, maybe things are evolving?

  12. In Virgo in the 10th conjunct uranus. Huh? Committed to change? Maybe that explains all the rescue animals coming and going.

  13. Juno conj Pluto in 9th Libra.
    Commitment to all things Plutonian? Commitment to transformations through sports or travelling? To me this never looked very good.

  14. Virgo in the 8th. Committed to sex in a practical way? Committed to serving through sex? Hmm. I’m sure that could be spun other ways.

  15. 20 degrees Aquarius in the 5th house opposing Uranus in the 11th. Commited to freedom of creative expression…I can see that.
    Not sure about the opposition by Uranus in leo itself. Hmmm….my commitment to freedom is opposed by freedom itself? This could probably be either a zen moment or an existential nightmare!! This could play into my feeling that too much of a good thing becomes less so quickly…I’m wary of movements I believe in because once they gather steam can be blinded by their own light. Lots of food for thought – thanks, Satori.

  16. 3rd/sag, on nadir, opposing jupiter in the ninth/gemini/midheaven. only thing actually aspecting my jupiter. (juno’s opposing her husband in his own sign, at the nadir/homefront… ;P)

    i often think it’s a cosmic joke.
    but, uhm, the 9th/3rd house axis is definitely quite important to me.

  17. When I introduced myself to Juno the first time, I found it very revealing. All my life I had been wondering why nearly all my relationships are either full-on secret affairs, or public secrets.

    Libra, 12th house. I don’t want say I’m committed to secret affairs though.. I’m definitely committed to daydreaming about relationships ๐Ÿ˜€

    Scorpio. All or nothing, though I think the opposition to Venus and Mars in Taurus helps. I might be more sure about house placements by next month.

  19. Juno in 1st house in Pisces but squares Neptune.
    Trine Sun, trine Venus and conjunct Jupiter.
    Am I commited to myself? being Aquarius rising and having Uranus in aspects with most my planets it’s like that’s the only commitment chance I have?

  20. This so unfair… another sadge sign in my 11th house it is like stellium gone wild. It conjuncts my Merc and Uranus. The strange thing is that I don’t have many friends around me.

  21. Thank you Satori! Iโ€™m always curious about asteroids!

    In my chart, Juno is 1st House/Cap. Very appropriate for current revelations: my ultimate goal is to be 100% self reliant and avoid depending on others at all cost, yet to be there, reliable and dependable to those that matter โ€“ all of this visible so that there is no misunderstandingโ€ฆ At least thatโ€™s what I think it means?

    Very well aspected (Trine with Mercury and N. Node, Semi-sextile with Rising Sag) except for a square to the MCโ€ฆ So I read this as career/public achievements require that I do rely on others and this absolutely irks and frustrates my โ€œNever Rely on Anyone Elseโ€ mantra?

    Plus, Cap: very stubbornly commitment oriented + Juno: Commitments… oh my!

  22. I have just looked at this as Placidus, where people in the past have interpreted, and equal house, which Elsa uses. Everything changes.
    Placidus: Juno in Aries in 9 sextile moon in Gemini in 11;
    Juno in Aries in 9 opp Neptune in Libra in 3
    Equal: Juno in Aries in 8 sextile moon in Gemini in 10;
    Juno in Aries in 8 opp Neptune in Libra in 2

    For Placidus: commitment to learning, though unfocused, sometimes coming through quirky individuals?
    For Equal: I’m drawing a blank, though work is important to me emotionally. 10/8 work as a resource? The 2/8 axis would maybe say something about resources: I’m fuzzy, not focused enough about them. That might fit.

  23. Ok. I’ve got Juno in my 3rdH Libra conjunct True Node (Astro terminology — is True Node a.k.a. North Node?) Libra == relationship, 3rdH Gemini == Communication. Do I have this right?

  24. Great article Satori… I haven’t been able to wrap my head around any of the Astroids, and this makes it so much easier to understand. My placement doesn’t surprise me in the least… It’s in the 7th, ruled by Taurus. My husband’s Sun is in Taurus…

    I’m not exactly sure how to interpret the aspects Juno makes: Opposite AC/Neptune/Moon and sextile Mercury.

  25. thanks satori!

    i’m not sure i understand how a progression relates to my life as compared to a solar return, but i just checked & the progressed juno is in, whaddaya know, 19 degrees capricorn in the 12th house.

    i’m either doomed to be a workaholic forevahhh! or, i’m attracted to men who are really secret enemies… hey, that actually explains a lot – i’ve always been an a-hole magnet ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. gingernicole — i’ve got the same placement in my solar return. & i gotta say, i wouldn’t mind it one bit if the theme of this year is being committed to sex ๐Ÿ˜€ in fact, i say bring it on!

  27. My Juno is in Pisces 7th house – what does that mean? have any bearing on why I can’t get out of a permanently damaged 30 yr marriage?

  28. thanks for another fine article, Satori ๐Ÿ™‚

    i’ve never had a look at Juno before.

    she’s in my 4th, in vir, conjunct pluto: my “home” has changed again & again during last years. monks called me “mister clean” in temple ๐Ÿ™‚ later, i’ve re-worked a big piece of land (though i considered that to be saturn-in-4th). & yes, i try to take care of “home of loved ones” (though i considered that to be cancer rising).

    in any case, pluto helps a lot to purify & to transform “home” situations

  29. @libralicious – ha! ๐Ÿ˜› I wish it worked out that way thus far in my life… so far it’s just obsessing over the topic of sex in general! I’m not really sure how Virgo works into that, though; I’d be curious to figure that out.

  30. sorry, that sounded way too pollyanna even for me – must be my sag rising creeping up on me when i wasn’t looking ๐Ÿ˜‰
