Asteroid Juno is on the move, and will soon exit emotional water sign Cancer and enter fun-loving Leo. What does this have in store 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 Leo 2023
Juno has been in Cancer, focusing on emotional connections and commitments, and making us more serious about our relationships. Juno in Leo lightens things up, and we can have more fun with others and want to enjoy our commitments.
Juno in Leo puts the asteroid of commitment in the sign of love, so we can definitely commit in love and be more comfortable with commitment in our love relationships, but we may not be super serious about it. We're serious about the commitment since Leo is a loyal fixed sign, and we can be pretty loyal now, but we don't want to be gloomy about it. Instead, we go into this commitment with joy and excitement in our hearts.
With Leo, we can be more generous in our committed love relationships, and can feel proud of the relationships we've created. We can give our commitments more attention, and can be comfortable with others focusing on them as well.
Leo is also ruler of our children, so if you have kids, you can become more committed to helping them in some way. Leo rules our creativity, so we can commit to more creative projects and ventures as well. And with Leo ruling celebs, there may be a big celeb marriage announcement.
Juno tours Zodiac sign Leo for about 2 months, from August 15th to October 17th 2023.
Important Juno in Leo Aspects:
One interesting thing about this tour of Juno in Leo is that when Juno enters Leo, Venus will be retrograde (appearing to move backward) in Leo as well. They won't conjunct (align) until after the retrograde ends, on September 27th at 27 degrees Leo, but Venus retrograde may still have some impact until it ends (September 3rd).
This may mean we're more focused on committing to old loves, bringing back old flames and being more loyal this time around, or we may recommit to existing love relationships. There can also be issues in our committed love relationships that need to be addressed, or issues preventing us from being comfortable with commitment we need to work on.
Around the same time that conjunction is exact, Juno will square (challenging aspect, 3 signs away) Uranus in Taurus on September 30th at 22 degrees. This can bring some challenges as Uranus tries to break things apart that aren't working so well, and we can work to improve but may have some unexpected issues first. Good committed relationships may be fine, but unhealthy ones can go through a period where you have to make hard decisions.
Juno will also square Jupiter in Taurus on September 15th, not long after Jupiter retrograde begins (September 4th). We may lack the motivation to do much of anything regarding any commitment issues, and may feel like things will work out on their own. This may lead to problems growing worse, and we put ourselves in a bad position. We have to find a way to get moving with issues and work through them. Since Jupiter is the happy planet, it helps, so when we do put in effort, we can make things better more easily. This aspect occurs with both bodies at 15 degrees.
