NASA did a funny thing with the orbiter it just sent off to visit Jupiter today. NASA called the orbiter Juno. In Greek Mythology, Jupiter is called Zeus. Zeus is the King of the Greek Pantheon and he is married to Juno. And Juno reigns as Queen and she's happy about that but in humorous circles she is known as the Jealous wife because Jupiter/Zeus, uh, is a bit of a philanderer.

The chart for the launch is pretty funny. Libra, sign that rules Marriage, is on the Ascendant so Venus rules the chart. She is conjunct the Sun in Leo up in the 10th House. This shows Social Status of the Ruling Class.

And then there's the jealous Moon (woman) in Scorpio in the 1st house opposing Jupiter in the 7th House of Marriage. Oppositions often show relationships as they represent opposite ends of the same pole. They just as often show balancing acts and the need to harmonize.

Mars is at 1 Cancer. I guess you could say that this will be a story of household discord.

Juno the Orbiter will reach Jupiter's orbit in July 2016 and will circle around him 33 times. She can't actually land on him because he's a big ball of gases (and she'd be the first to tell you that). After her orbits Juno will crash into Jupiter in October 2017.
