Opposed to...

In our blogs, we don’t talk much about the asteroids. That’s partially because there are so many of them, if we count all the known asteroids. Then there’s Ceres being reclassified as a dwarf planet, plus a whole gaggle of new solar system bodies - it seems hard to know where to draw the line.

Nonetheless, the four Goddess Asteroids originally presented as such by Demetra George - Ceres, Vesta, Pallas Athene, and Juno - are important energies in our personal and collective psyches. This week, they are very active, as Ceres stations to retrograde while the others have major aspects from Saturn, Chiron (also an asteroid), and the Sun.

Our focus today is Juno’s opposition to Jupiter… it’s a good way to get started with asteroids in relationship. Juno will be opposite to Jupiter on April 8th, with the aspect exact at 6:21p EDT (3:21p PDT, 22:21 GMT). That gives us virtually all day to see how it manifests.

Mythologically, Juno and Jupiter are closely related, as they are a married couple. Juno was the Roman goddess representing fertility, childbirth, and marriage (“June weddings” - get it?). In astrology, we often transfer these meanings onto astrological Juno, making her the ‘partnership asteroid.’

The Greek counterpart of Juno is Hera, Zeus’ wife. While Roman and Greek deities share significant similarities, there are differences as well, and the relationship between Zeus and Hera is not without its challenges.

Zeus is known to frequently indulge his hearty sexual appetite. Hera is anything but a passive, accepting wife, and she expresses her considerable anger at Zeus, his sexual partners, and their offspring. While Juno is represented as the more maternal side of the partner (wife as mother to the children), Hera is a more independent figure, truly ‘partner as partner’.

The asteroid Juno seems to pick up on both sides of Juno/Hera. With today’s opposition to Jupiter (and in the mutable, flexible, and dual signs of Sagittarius and Gemini, no less), we’re perhaps more likely to see Hera than Juno at work - although with the asteroid in the sign of the twins, it makes sense that we would see both Juno and Hera.
