Juno is the third asteroid discovered after Ceres. It was discovered in 1804, by the astronomer Karl Harding. Juno was first considered a planet, like the other asteroids, until it was later reclassified as an asteroid.
Juno is the name of the ancient Roman goddess, which was the goddess of childbirth, marriage, women’s sexuality, etc. She was the queen of other gods because she was the wife of the king of gods, Jupiter.
Juno was a devoted wife to her husband and was well-known for her loyalty although her husband didn’t deserve it.
The mighty god Jupiter was known for cheating on his wife and his numerous affairs, and Juno was aware of that. She was considered an ideal wife. Juno was also considered the protector and patron goddess of Rome.
In an astrological sense, Juno symbolizes marriage, long-term relationships, commitment, compromises, loyalty, devotion, betrayal, infidelity, partnerships and relationships which need effort and balancing, etc.

Juno helps us realize the ideal traits we look for in our ideal mate. That is very important because we usually choose our partners based on the traits and needs of our Mars and Venus.
These traits are often not enough and they satisfy only our physical and emotional needs. They usually don’t satisfy the needs we have for a long-term partnership which could be completely different from the previous two and certainly not enough.
The reason for that is the fact that Venus and Mars describe the traits we seek in a partner to satisfy our emotional and physical needs. The Juno fills the rest of our needs in an ideal mate.

That is why Juno also describes our insecurities and doubts in romantic relationships.

It also describes the issues and circumstances we consider to be a deal-breaker in a relationship and the things we are prepared to tolerate in a long-term relationship or marriage, but which could potentially cause the breakup of that relationship.
Juno also describes how tolerant we are and our ability to be patient to wait for the right opportunities to establish a relationship. Juno in our natal chart should be carefully studied because it gives us all the clues in regards to our ideal partner which we only need to follow.
If we pay attention to the information Juno is giving us it is likely that we won’t make any mistakes in choosing our partner.
We should be aware that the people who attract us the most usually aren’t our ideal partners.
