JUNO is the Roman Goddess of marriage, time, and women. She is the foremost of the Roman Goddesses, ruling heaven with her husband, Jupiter. Juno also presides over femininity, menstrual cycles, matronly virtues, childbirth, breezes, showers, and new beginnings. She is the mother of the Gods Mars and Vulcan and the Goddess Hebe.

Juno's husband Jupiter may have been King of the Gods, but he wasn't much of a husband. Juno is usually depicted as the jealous wife, and the myths of the Greek Goddess Hera's actions against the lovers of her husband, Zeus, were ascribed to Juno when the Romans adopted Greek mythology. Juno's name is the source of the month of June, and there is an asteroid named after her that orbits the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

Juno's name means "vital force", and is also seen as IUNO, UNIAL, IONONES, and IUNONES. Epithets and titles include:
