Juno Retrograde in Virgo

Juno goes retrograde for 10 to 17 weeks each year. Juno is an asteroid that rules commitment, as well as the qualities that it takes to maintain a healthy, functional partnership (of any kind): social skills, loyalty, justice and a balance of give and take. Additionally, Juno’s status as patron of relationships denotes themes of marriage, power balance / imbalance, status and issues of feminism.

During a Juno Retrograde period, you may feel dissatisfied and confused in your relationships. Suddenly, your habitual ways of relating to others are called into question. This is especially true of the people you are strongly bound to in a contractual way (such as a spouse or business partner). Perhaps you need to rediscover where true love and friendship meet the contractual elements of partnership.

Commitment Clarity Day: Juno Retrograde Opposite Sun

Juno retrograde in exacting Virgo at 13º opposes the Sun in Pisces on March 13, 2024. We call this day “Commitment Clarity Day”, and it marks a major climax in Juno’s retrograde cycle.

When Juno direct is opposite the Sun, she brings an epiphany moment in our partnerships. If Juno Retrograde’s reexamination period has been painful for you, clarity will likely come on Commitment Clarity Day. This clarity can lead to a deeper bond and greater commitment in your relationship going forward. Or perhaps it brings the clarity that leads to a separation, divorce or mediation of a long-standing disagreement. 

Juno Retrograde in Virgo Opposite Sun in Pisces

While Juno seeks equality and sovereignty in her relationships, Virgo tends towards a state of imbalance. Virgo seeks to serve, but feels uncomfortable receiving. This has to do with a deep need to feel in control. Virgo’s capability and know-how help her feel that she is in control. On the other hand, Virgo’s devotion is congruent with Juno’s theme of commitment. Juno retrograde in Virgo demonstrates that she is willing to work very hard to improve a relationship. During this Juno Retrograde period, you can expect the asteroid goddess to put your relationship through a serious test.

Of all Virgo’s shadow qualities, perfectionism may especially be rearing its head. This retrograde is time for you to differentiate between obsessive perfectionism and healthy standards. In other words, is your criticism born of perfectionism that does not honor another’s humanity, or are you upholding standards and boundaries that are necessary for your own satisfaction and fulfillment in a relationship?

Communication and Truth in Actions: Juno Opposite Sun, March 3 2024

While Juno Retrograde in Virgo opposes the Sun, Mercury and Saturn will both be conjunct the Sun in Pisces. The emphasis here is on words and communication, as well as integrity and maturity. Therefore, we are likely to receive insights regarding our communication with significant others in our lives, and our need to use words in a thoughtful, truthful, serious way.

On the day that Juno Retrograde opposes the Sun, she will also square the Moon in Sagittarius. Mutable T-squares are known for their distractibility, pulling energies in several different directions. The Moon in Sagittarius may promote honesty, yet it may overdo and lack tact. Saturn in Virgo stresses the importance of thinking before you speak, and how your words affect others. Whoever said “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” never considered the effect that words continue to exert on us unconsciously. 

Saturn in Virgo conjunct the Sun and Mercury asks us to align action, intention, and our words. It is through this alignment that we can cultivate trust in our relationships.
