What Juno in Scorpio Says About Your Relationships
Ready to go deep? After you learn the basics of your birth chart—all the planets and signs—perhaps you start to dig further into the asteroids. Juno is one such asteroid that represents marriage and long-term relationships. But for those who don’t know, let’s uncover Juno’s history and define exactly what this asteroid means in your birth chart—especially when it falls under the complex and deep sign of Scorpio.
“In classical mythology, she was the wife of Zeus, and she represents marriage, long term partnership, and feminine leadership,” according to astrologer Julia Mihas. According to Mayo Clinic, Juno is the Roman name for this goddess while the Greeks referred to her as Hera. While she was a loving and devoted wife, she was also known to be quite jealous and difficult.
In terms of astrology, the meaning behind this asteroid relates well to the devoted heart of Juno. “Juno not only describes what you require in a long term partnership, but what you also bring to the table,” Mihas explains.
Mihas explains further by comparing Juno’s purpose to Venus’ purpose in the birth chart. Venus, the planet of love and money, shows how we approach falling in love. It explains what traits we are most attracted to, whether we fall in love easily, and how falling in love “works” for us. For example, Venus in Aries? You may enjoy someone spontaneous and exciting and can fall in love just as quickly as you fall out of it.
Juno, on the other hand, shows how you approach marriage and long-term commitment. So, it represents what you need in a marriage in order to feel safe and secure for the long haul.
Juno in Scorpio
Scorpio is the modern sign of Pluto, and traditional sign of Mars. It’s a water sign so there is a lot of emotion with this zodiac sign and an ability to fluidly express those emotions to their partner. “Scorpio is passionate, committed, and like all water signs, has an ‘urge to merge,’” says Mihas.
However, given that this particular sign is ruled by the planets of power and war, imagine how this plays into long-term partnership. This kind of placement is likely to enjoy mystery, keeping things, and “behind closed doors” kind of sexual adventures.
“If you have Juno in Scorpio in your chart, it means that your long term partnership needs are complex and not superficial,” says Mihas. “You require a lot of depth with a partner to be satisfied in the long term.”
Scorpio is runs with both sexual and psychological themes. So, in a marriage situation, someone with Juno in Scorpio can connect not just deeply with a partner, but also psychologically and sexually as well. This also means that someone with Juno in Scorpio has an intuitive connection with their partner.
“Since Scorpio is the sign of transformation, the greatest vehicle for your personal transformation is through long term relationships,” she says.
Scorpio is also quite moody and broody at times. So, a marriage that has some ups and downs is almost inevitable. And since Scorpio is so attuned to betrayal, this person might be a bit obsessive or paranoid about cheating, affairs, or breaking trust. It’s because of this heightened attention to betrayal that someone with Juno in Scorpio may find it difficult at first to commit to those deep relationships. They will be so afraid of feeling betrayed that they will never open themselves up to begin with.
Mihas also suggests looking at how Venus and Juno connect (or disconnect) in your birth chart. “ If Venus and Juno are in a hard aspect in someone’s chart, it usually means there’s a dynamic tension between what they are attracted to in a partner and what their long term needs are.”

Finally, Mihas says that this placement is very “ride or die.” Juno in Scorpio is looking to marry a soulmate, and nothing else. While this placement makes someone want a soulmate and die-hard kind of love, that’s a little difficult to do if you’re not keen on opening up. This person will find it hard to be vulnerable, but they will have to do so if they want a committed and long-lasting marriage.
How do you determine whether you’ve found a soulmate? Well, Mihas suggests looking at their birth chart. “ If you have Juno in Scorpio in your chart, and are dating someone with lots of planets in Scorpio in theirs, you may feel a deep, relational connection.” She notes that Juno-Mars, Juno-Venus, Juno-moon, and Juno-sun are great connections to look for.
