Juno’s placement by sign speaks of the approach a woman should take in empowering herself from the inside out. Positive facets of Juno’s sign will describe how she effectively asserts herself, as well as which positive attitudes and strengths she adopts to make an impact on her world. The negative traits of Juno’s sign manifest as frustration in empowerment, and they take a decidedly destructive bent. In a male’s chart, Juno’s sign describes the traits he finds appropriate in a mate or a partner. It also symbolizes what he may complain about in a mate, when he is less than accepting of his own anima.
In a woman’s chart
Juno in Aries shows leadership potential; she’s a warrior with a purpose. Failure to embrace her innate sense of competence can show as inappropriate anger or hair-trigger temper, or a command to others to follow her lead even though her behavior may be less than inspiring.
Juno in Taurus offers stability and sustenance to others, and exhibits a facility for earning and artisanal pursuits. She’s in danger of caring too much about things, or of hoarding or competing materially.
Juno in Gemini is a networker, adept at handling and disseminating information, and in connecting others; unfulfilled energies show as gossip and an inability to stick to the subject.
Juno in Cancer, empowered, nurtures in a multitude of forms. Disempowered, one clings and manipulates through feeling.
Juno in Leo shines through the identity, acting as example and illuminator. When working the negative, this Juno is too vain to be of aid to others.
Juno in Virgo glories in the details, in organization, in the harvest; on the down side, she may nitpick and communicate only through criticism.
Juno in Libra works with others and emphasizes fairness, but when dysfunctional, she may be passive-aggressive or patently unfair (but with a pretty smile).
Juno in Scorpio finds her element in the depths of the Soul and of experience. Her negative outlet may be destruction that doesn’t discriminate.
Juno in Sagittarius is a pioneer, but always with attention to the accumulated knowledge of society. She is able to reach out intelligently to what is unusual, to educate. Her negative expression is simply running away.
Juno in Capricorn is solid, reliable, practical and organized. Others love her in part because they can rely on her. A poorly functioning Cappy Juno brings chaos wherever she goes.
Juno in Aquarius, actualized, is the intelligent innovator, while the undeveloped one rebels, whether there’s a reason to or not!
Juno in Pisces can unite, commune and inspire. In less positive form, we may see her power seated in delusion or fantasy.
In a man’s chart
Juno in Aries says he wants a mate who can take care of herself, and maybe one who’s boss — and this is his main complaint!
Juno in Taurus appreciates a mate with sensual and artisanal skills, but he may be too focused on what his mate might earn from these skills, or on how these serve his own comfort.
Juno in Gemini needs conversation with his mate to be lively, while the complaint may be of a shallow intellect or too much emphasis on socializing.
Juno in Cancer indicates he wants someone to make a home with, perhaps a partner for mutual nurturing support — or that he wants a mommy.
Juno in Leo wants someone who can ‘shine’ in her own right. In the narrow-minded, this devolves into the desire for a trophy wife.
Juno in Virgo wants a true helpmate, someone unafraid to get her hands dirty and be willing to see to the details. On the negative side, he may really want a butler and an accountant.
Juno in Libra wants a true-blue mate and ever-present harmony. In less positive manifestations, insistence on harmony may negate the individuality of the mate.
Juno in Scorpio seeks a deep and intense pairing and can make this a reality — as long as Scorp respects his mate enough not to destroy her.
Juno in Sagittarius is a living conundrum: he wants bachelorhood and a mate at the same time. Unless he’s very considerate, it’s hard to tell the positive of this from the negative!
Juno in Capricorn takes the marital relationship seriously. Taken too far, he may want to box up the mate and put her on the shelf.
Juno in Aquarius likes a free-thinker who’s not afraid to try something new. He may complain, though, when her freedom-loving Self rebels and runs wild into the night.
Juno in Pisces wants a mate who in some way offers a transcendent experience, but her otherworldly nature may irritate him to no end when it’s time to come back to earth.
