“Before VerDarLuz’s Relocation Strategy session, my girlfriend and I were at a crossroads. I could not live where she was and she could not live where I was. VerDarLuz found the mutual, supportive location where we both wanted to live. Now she and I are setting sail to live our life together.” –

Juno is one of the many asteroids I discuss with my clients in my Asteroid Allies readings. Since Juno is on my MC, my midheaven point of career, I’ve studied her significance quite a bit. Juno is a complicated archetype, which makes her fitting for relationships. Juno was the Roman equivalent of the Greek Hera, whose name splits into he era, meaning “the earth,” and also translated as “lady,” the feminine form of “hero.”
For the Romans, each man possessed an inner reproductive power called his genius, while each woman had her conceiving and bearing power, called her juno. Juno’s most important function was as a patroness of married women. She oversaw all major social rites and customs, especially that of marriage. From her name derives the month of June, which was sacred to her, and is still the month with the greatest number of marriages.
In one story of their origin as a couple, Zeus develops a romantic longing for his sister Hera as he spots her walking near a mountain. He changes himself into a cuckoo bird. In Greece, the cuckoo’s cries announced the rain that brought forth the food and fruits, so the bird was considered a harbinger of fertility. Zeus, as god of storms, then caused a powerful rainstorm to descend, and he flew, shaken and shivering from the cold into Hera’s lap. Hera took pity on the bird and wrapped it with her cloak. Immediately Zeus took his original shape and ravished her. And here is the important point: Hera feels shame for her violation, and so marries Zeus out of guilt and obligation.
This version of the myth recounts to me the soul-contracts which two people fashion between each other in the spirit-world. There is a sense of pathos, compassion, or divine pity we feel for those who are members of our soul-cluster. We play various roles with them from one incarnation to the next, and we are obligated to do so, in order that we may grow and develop into a greater sense of wholeness. As we continue with Juno’s significance, we will see that she has much to say about our cosmic appointments and our karmic duty.
In one of my most important relationships, I met a woman the day after she found out she had gotten pregnant. I immediately provided a nurturing role for her. I showed up exactly at the moment when she needed the support of a spouse. In studying our Juno contacts, I found that my Juno was within just a few degrees of her South Node, the point most associated with past lives, linking our souls across space and time, most likely as partners before. Juno transits can also signify when these key connections will seem to magically appear in our lives.
In another version of the Zeus-Hera myth, the two gods mate in secrecy in a palace beneath the sea on the island of Samos. They partner up as equals, enjoying a three-hundred year honeymoon of limitless bliss. But then the soap opera starts once Zeus brings Hera to Mt. Olympus, and rarely do we hear of any shared bliss between the divine couple again.
Why? As king of the gods, Zeus indulges in many affairs with mortals and immortals alike, at times arrogantly displaying his conquests for all–including his wife–to see. In the stories, Hera repeatedly plots revenge, at times humiliating Zeus. The two punish and manipulate each other as only the best and worst of beloveds can. This tragic component is fundamentally interwoven into our astrological Juno contacts, especially highlighted by the notion of the gods’ honeymoon, isolated in the palace beneath the sea.
One of my potent Juno contact was a relationship which began at Burning Man – an instant falling-in-love. For a year, we navigated the long distance dance, which ultimately had an overwhelming sadness to it, where we wanted so bad to be with each other, but circumstantially could not. Both of our Junos were conjunct, within just a few degrees, so that we mirrored our concepts of the sacred partner. Our few moments of re-union over vacation times were blissful, but recalled the ‘artificial heaven‘ of the Hera-Zeus honeymoon.
It is important to mention here how the aspect of undulation occurs in our Juno contacts. Because of the depth of the connection on a soul level, we find ourselves possibly leaving and returning with these partners, The Greek myths emphasize Juno’s need for retreat in solitude and renewal, as her empathic link to Zeus seemed to require her to bathe in the waters of the spring of Kanathos to regenerate herself after hearing of Zeus’ love affairs..
The Juno role will be projected on anyone considered to be our “primary partner,” the person we check in with, the lover we live with, or the one we share our body and soul with–whomever knows us better than anyone else. She is the one, whether male or female, who we bear our naked souls to in utter vulnerability. This vulnerability is what frightens us, because we can no longer hide. At any moment, that Juno partner can use their knowledge of our fragile and weaker parts against us. On the other hand, with a reciprocal bond of respect, the Juno partner can act as a guide who perceives the various layers of our psychological fabric, if we are willing to see ourselves mirrored.
The fears and promises of naked transparency with another demonstrate the Scorpio and eighth house flavor of Juno’s meaning in her revelation of certain pathologies in relationships—fears, sacrifices, power struggles, and also the potential of soul-blending. These fears include the fears of betrayal, abandonment, and even the overwhelming intensity of sexuality itself. The fact that Juno has been in Scorpio since the end of 2015, is retrograding here and at the last degree of Libra in early Summer, and will not leave Scorpio until November suggests that all of our closest relationships will reveal our deepest shadows and test our potential for alchemizing the dark reflection into the light emanation.

One of the most revealing techniques in Locational Astrology is called Local Space. With this tool, we can see what areas of the earth will invite a certain kind of energy to emerge for you. We can also think of Local Space as places where specific planetary “teachers” will profoundly influence all aspects of your life.
A quite obvious example of Local Space occurs for former President George W. Bush in Iraq, the exact location where his Mars line emanates. Mars is the god of war, battle, confrontation, aggression, and rash decision and phrases like: “You’re either with us, or against us” or “The Axis of Evil.” (Bush also has a Mars line through Afghanistan – Mars is on his angle of career there. Whatever planet may be on this angle is what we are recognized or remembered for in a certain location.)
Bush’s Local Space Sun line goes through Texas, where he has achieved incredible solar popularity and where his fame first began. Also, Bush’s Sun is in Leo, sign of governance, rule, and in its shadow, self-righteous arrogance. The sun rules Leo, strengthening Bush’s Sun in Texas and influencing his rise to the Leonine ruler of governor in that state. His Local Space Saturn line, which represents where we must put dedicated effort and discipline, goes directly through Austin, Texas where he worked as the governor of the state.
In my own life, I traveled to a Venus Local Space line when I taught at the Boom Festival in Portugal in 2010. This line crosses southern Portugal and Spain. In addition to love, Venus rules both aesthetics and the attractive principle. I met numerous beautiful people, felt a sense of popularity, ease, and pleasure, discovered music I adored, and swam daily in the exquisite waters of the lake. Venus lines also bring women into prominence in our lives. Within a day, I met a woman with whom I shared a profound sense of familiarity, especially of being past life beloveds.
My Venus is in Gemini as is hers. Gemini themes of teaching, travel, language, and even sibling rivalry dominated our connection. We met after I taught an astrological workshop, discussed astrological systems and esoteric teachings of the Egyptians and Maya, often spoke both English and Spanish with each other, and traveled together across the Spain and Portugal—all of which support the Venus in Gemini themes of attraction—foreign tongues, accents, enticing information, and busy city travel by car. I also wrote many short stories, not common for me, in this short trip, and Gemini is the sign of the writer.
Imagine on the day of your birth, Mom or Dad lifted you up the heavens and pointed to each planet in the exact direction it was in the sky—there’s Jupiter, there’s Saturn, there’s Mercury. This is the premise for what astrologers call Local Space Lines.
One way to think about Local Space lines is almost like Feng Shui energies that compel you towards certain areas of the earth to realize aspects of your soul. In these regions, you will encounter archetypal energies specific to the planetary lines. They are the directions of influence in our lives.
To understand the concept of Local Space further, it is helpful to think of a planet as a teacher—a unique intelligence and specific energetic force within your psyche. The closer you travel to or live on a Local Space line, the more a certain planetary teacher rises to dominate your consciousness and teach you its lessons. These lessons will also be specific to how that planet is configured in your chart i.e., the expressive flavor of its sign, house, and aspects. The sign is the pattern of energy the planet embodies, the house is the area of life it lives in your chart as well as the area of life it rules, and the aspects are how the planetary teacher interacts with other planets. These elements make up the experiential gestalt of a Local Space planetary line.
In terms of proximity to living or traveling to one’s Local Space lines, the same rules apply as they do to the more well known locational Astrology technique called Astrocartography (ACG): the closer you move to a planetary line, the more you receive the influence of that planetary intelligence, and how it is conditioned in your birth chart.

Astro-Locality assists each of us in finding love, in all the right places. A famous “love-lines” example is Brad Pitt. Brad was born in Oklahoma and his Moon and Venus Local Space lines arc out through Southern California, extremely close to Hollywood.
All of Venus’s representations have been actualized by Brad in this location. First, his wife Angelina and his former partner Jennifer Aniston, were both born in Los Angeles. Typically, Venus lines will show us where very significant relationships can existe for us.
Secondly, Venus represents our creativity and aesthetics. Brad performs his art of acting in Hollywood. He also earns millions of dollars for his roles, and Venus rules money, in addition to love and creativity. His Venus is in the sign of Capricorn and Brad has achieved his Capricornian ambitions of being a successful, well-respected, and hard-working actor.

Also, a man with a Venus in Capricorn is attracted to a female partner who is also devoted to her long term success. Typically, this male will also want to be in committed and enduring partnerships with successful people. Brad was with hugely famous actress Jennifer Aniston for 7 years and his relationship with Angelina Jolie ended after 11 years together and the creation of a large family together.
