“You intend no doubt to give me nothing, and are not aware the gift has already been received. Curse me then, and take away the spell. For I am rich, no cheap and ragged beggar but a queen, to rouse the king I need in you.”
–Alice Walker, The Gift
Juno, the asteroid, is associated with marriage and commitment. Juno the Roman goddess is daughter of Saturn, wife of Jupiter and mother of Mars (war) and Vulcan (fire). Does any of that sound touchy-feely? As the daughter of Saturn she embodies the feminine manifestation of commitment. Politically correct or not, that is most often associated with marriage.

No sign loves a good time more than a Leo; that fiery and proud sign ruled by the Sun. Leo has been assigned to the 5th house by the ancients which contains every activity that is pleasurable: Love, children, fun and also speculation. Yes, speculation. Surprised? Well believe it or not, lots of people (don’t include me) find a vacation in Las Vegas to be more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
There is a reason the universe gave Leo such a classy home address that has more cachet than Buckingham Palace. Kingly, princely, queenly or whatever noble adjective you want to put in front of it, this proud sign’s demeanor can rival a peacock in full plume.
Don’t let even the most demure Leo fool you. Underneath that quiet exterior lies a lion or lioness prepared to rule its turf. Make no mistake about it, they always take things personally. Do you want to know why? Think about it, if your sign was ruled by the sun it would just be a matter of time, probably around the 3rd grade, when you found out that the everything revolves around the sun. Wouldn’t it be natural to assume that you were the center of the universe. Make sense? Sure does to me. So when it comes down to it, that’s why its all about them. Get used to it.
They are the kings or queens of the zodiac and they expect the rest of us to respect their elevated station in life. Leo’s always play their station in life to the hilt. A Leo caretaker will play the role as if he or she were a character in Downton Abbey. A Leo teacher will play the role like an Oscar winner. A Leo boss will be the consummate boss. As long as you keep genuflecting every time you enter his or her office you will be considered part of the royal court. Insufferable? Arrogant? A pompous prig? Yeah maybe, but this sign also really loves a good time.
The best time to appreciate a Leo is at a party. These people really, really party. Don’t forget, Leo’s also love the theater. Nothing motivates them more than performing in front of an audience. Think real life Leo’s like Robert DeNiro and Barack Obama. Now, he really is presidential but he also can let his hair down and have a good time. Did you see him and Seinfeld doing the White House? I don’t think there’s ever been a President who’s been more willing to share his sense of humor with the people of this country more than he has.
So yes Leo’s can be formidable, yes they can be full of themselves but if you had to hire a person to do a job for you, wouldn’t you want someone who would take it seriously, do it honorably and with dignity no matter what the position was? Having been in the position of hiring people more times than I can count, I know I would.

“Oh, the secret life of man and woman, dreaming how much better we would be than we are if we were somebody else or even ourselves, and feeling that our estate has been unexploited to its fullest.”
–Zelda Fitzgerald, Leo
I think Leo gets an underhanded bad rap. People don’t come right out and bash but there’s an undertone sometimes, a “who do they think they are?” kind of vibe. Well, that’s the thing; Leo knows who they are. It’s good to be king (queen). Have you ever heard, “she’s just full of drama,” or “he needs to be taken down a peg”? Healthy Leo is shiny, and that makes some people uncomfortable. Often those people are not comfortable with their own Leo energy!

“Is the system going to flatten you out and deny you your humanity, or are you going to be able to make use of the system to the attainment of human purposes?”
Pallas Athena, the mythological goddess, originated from the head of Zeus (Jupiter) a fully formed, female warrior. She is associated with creative intelligence, particularly as it relates to war, healing and arts and crafts. The energy this asteroid expresses resonates with a blending of Aquarius, Leo and Libra. As simply as possible she represents the creative intelligence, perception of wholly realized concepts and balance.
