Asteroid Juno is about to leave Pisces on January 13th 2023, after being in this sign for almost 9 months. It'll move into fiery Aries. What does this do for us?
About Juno in Astrology
Juno is an asteroid in astrology, and there are tens of thousands of asteroids, and each connects to something different. Many are simply names, but some like Amor connect to specific energies.
In the case of asteroid Juno, this is the asteroid of commitment. Juno shows how we express commitment and our attitudes around it, and in transit, we can see this via the Zodiac sign Juno is touring, and the natal house it's touring in your natal chart.
Impact of Asteroid Juno in Aries 2023
Juno spent a prolonged period of time in Pisces thanks to a retrograde in that sign, and Pisces is a flowing water sign. It ebbs and flows, it's romantic and dreamy, so we may have had a dreamy approach to commitment over the last 9 months, and preferred fantasy to reality.
Aries is a take-charge fire sign, and wants to take the initiative with commitment. Juno in Aries may prompt many people to jump at the chance to commit (to people, relationships, projects, or otherwise). And we can be quite enthusiastic about it!
The downside is, we may not think it through fully before jumping into it. We need to slow down a little and make certain this is the right call.
If we can be smart about it, then this can be good energy to help us commit, especially with people, relationships, or projects where we've waffled in the last 9 months. We may have thought about doing it, but we just didn't feel motivated to take the step. Now we do!
We may see commitment as a brand new beginning, which it is, so that's a decent attitude. Instead of being scared of that, we can find it exciting.
Juno tours Zodiac sign Aries for almost 2 months, from January 13th to March 11th 2023.
Important Juno in Aries Aspects:
Juno in Aries is going to make two important conjunctions (alignments). One is with Jupiter early on, on January 22nd 2023, and Jupiter is the planet of expansion, so this can expand on commitment energy.
It may seem like everyone and their mother (and their mother's mother!) is committing to something around this time. And we're all so thrilled about it! With Jupiter, it might even open up new doors for us.
The second conjunction is with Chiron in Aries on February 7th 2023. Chiron is the wounded healer in astrology, connecting to our greatest wounds, but also our healing abilities.
Juno conjunct Chiron can show two things. One, commitment ends up wounding us; or two, commitment ends up healing us. Which it'll be likely depends on how impulsive we are about commitment.
Juno in Aries is also going to square (challenging aspect) Pluto in Capricorn on March 11th 2023, and this is with both at the anaretic degree.
There are 30 degrees in every Zodiac sign, and 29 degrees is the last degree, and is called the anaretic degree. It's a point of crisis energy in transit.
This is likely an aspect showing a major breaking of commitment. We may see this individually with ourselves or people around us ending a commitment, but I suspect it'll also be much larger than that in the world, and we see some sort of p[artnership, country, or power couple breaking apart.
