What is Juno Retrograde?

Juno calls into question our habitual ways of relating to others

During Juno Retrograde you may find yourself asking “Why am I in this partnership?” or “Does this partnership have equal give and take?”

This applies to all relationships (Romantic, Platonic, and Business)

Can last anywhere from 10-17 weeks

Apart of a grand Venus cycle that last about 4 years

If your relationship is close to a breaking point, Juno’s retrograde will force it to break, so it can either be fixed or you can move on

When Juno is direct and conjunct by the sun, It is called the Commitment Rapture Day. When Juno is retrograde and opposed by the sun, It is called the Commitment Clarity Day. The day of Clarity is named such, because it's the day that the effects of Juno’s retrograde become clear as to why its happening

When juno goes into retrograde, problems are highlighted including; Infidelity, power struggles, emotional abuse, and separation

This doesn’t mean a relationship will end, as these retrogrades provide the opportunity to grow from the struggles and challenges.

This process can actually strengthen relationships

This could also help you realize when the relationship is lost and help you to find the strength to move on

Relationships where someone may feel like they cannot fully express themselves, or where they feel trapped, will undergo a deep transformation

Personal relationships may begin to feel suspicious because people don’t live up to their promises 

Business partnerships are reviewed because of potential lack of benefits and deceit involved.

Juno embodies the trust issues you may have, and may even amplify them.

Juno retrograde makes us confront the red flags we’ve been ignoring.

Juno The Goddess

Juno is the roman goddess of marriage, as well as the queen of gods.

She is Jupiter’s Wife, and she is very head strong and a fierce protector. 

Juno’s husband (Jupiter) is a serial womanizer, and this lead Juno to gaining the reputation of making his mistresses and illegitimate children miserable 

Juno brings down her godly wrath on those who dare harm a woman and her children
