The Queen of Heaven and Divine Consort, Juno, is one of astrology's four asteroid goddesses. The planet Venus represents love and Mars represents sex. But love, sex, and marriage doesn't always spell loyalty. Juno represents marriage, what you need in a mate, and the kind of mate you'll be. However, Juno, at her most basic is also about commitment in general.
The Roman Goddess Juno
Juno (Greek Hera) was the wife of Jupiter (Greek Zeus). In mythology, Juno is seduced by Jupiter, her twin brother and they marry. However, Juno endures a marriage of ongoing power struggles and infidelity. It's ironic that Juno should represent marriage, while her own marriage was plagued by her husband's numerous sexual affairs. Despite her husband's philandering, Juno remained fiercely loyal. She believed in fairness and equal partnerships, but she was also jealous and vindictive. Juno was not a lovey-dovey, content, stay-at-home wife.
Juno's Goddess Role
Juno was the Roman goddess of marriage and childbirth and presided over every aspect of a woman's life. She was the protector of pregnant women and insured their safety during childbirth. Her domain was homemaking, birth, and motherhood. Juno was also the protector of money.
Juno's Role in a Natal Chart
Juno represents your urge to unite with a person who's your equal, commit to them, and build a future together. She also represents divorce, promises, pledges, jealousy, and possession. Any intimate relationship falls under the jurisdiction of Juno. She speaks of issues of submission and domination, fidelity and infidelity, trust and deception, forgiveness and revenge. Whenever these issues come up in your life, an astrologer is likely to examine Juno in your birth chart.
Juno in Compatibility
Juno is essential to consider in synastry. Her sign indicates the type of marriage or long-term partner you seek as well as the kind of mate you will be. Connecting aspects from Juno to the planets or other important points in chart comparison can result in a magnetic union, but she can also make a person feel victimized, violated, battered, abused, quarrelsome, and pressured. As with everything in astrology, how Juno is expressed depends on the entire birth chart, the life the person has led, and the choices they make.

Hillary Clinton Is an Example of a Modern-Day Juno
Hillary Clinton, who remained married to Bill Clinton despite his infidelities, could be considered a modern-day Juno.
Hillary has Juno at 29° Sagittarius in the second house of financial resources. This placement indicates Hillary would marry a man who was stable, offered her financial security, and a vision that inspired her (Sagittarius). The problem for Hillary is that her Juno opposes disruptive Uranus in the eighth house of power and sex. This opposition predicts the likelihood that unexpected and traumatic incidences about sex would arise. Hillary, a Scorpio, like the Goddess Juno, was not a lovey-dovey, content, stay-at-home wife, and she also had a philandering husband to whom she remained loyal and committed, despite her anger.
The Four Asteroid Goddesses
Juno, Ceres, Vesta, and Pallas, the four asteroid goddesses, open up a world beyond the traditional roles of lover, wife, and mother and reveal the complexity of the feminine. Juno differentiates between being in love and sexually attracted to someone versus committing to someone who's a good fit for a long-term relationship. She represents loyalty to a relationship, for the sake of the relationship and speaks of ways spouses can live as one without losing themselves.
