Swirling bands of light and dark clouds on Jupiter are seen in this image made by citizen scientists using data from our Juno spacecraft. Each of the alternating light and dark atmospheric bands in this image is wider than Earth, and each rages around Jupiter at hundreds of miles (km) per hour. The lighter areas are regions where gas is rising, and the darker bands are regions where gas is sinking. This image was acquired on May 19, 2017 from about 20,800 miles (33,400km) above Jupiter’s cloud tops.

They may need a time to realise that they want from their partner and what kind of partner they want. 

Let Us See Jupiter Through Your Eyes

Our Juno spacecraft will fly over Jupiter’s Great Red Spot on July 10 at 10:06 p.m. EDT. This will be humanity’s first up-close and personal view of the gas giant’s iconic 10,000-mile-wide storm, which has been monitored since 1830 and possibly existing for more than 350 years.

The data collection of the Great Red Spot is part of Juno’s sixth science flyby over Jupiter’s mysterious cloud tops. Perijove (the point at which an orbit comes closest to Jupiter’s center) will be July 10 at 9:55 p.m. EDT. 

At the time of perijove, Juno will be about 2,200 miles above the planet’s cloud tops. Eleven minutes and 33 seconds later…Juno will have covered another 24,713 miles and will be directly above the coiling crimson cloud tops of the Great Red Spot. The spacecraft will pass about 5,600 miles above its clouds. 

When will we see images from this flyby?

During the flyby, all eight of the spacecraft’s instruments will be turned on, as well as its imager, JunoCam. Because the spacecraft will be collecting data with its Microwave Radiometer (MWR), which measures radio waves from Jupiter’s deep atmosphere, we cannot downlink information during the pass. The MWR can tell us how much water there is and how material is moving far below the cloud tops.

During the pass, all data will be stored on-board…with a downlink planned afterwards. Once the downlink begins, engineering data from the spacecraft’s instruments will come to Earth first, followed by images from JunoCam.

The unprocessed, raw images will be located HERE, on approximately July 14. Follow @NASAJuno on Twitter for updates.

Did you know you can download and process these raw images?

We invite the public to act as a virtual imaging team…participating in key steps of the process, from identifying features of interest to sharing the finished images online. After JunoCam data arrives on Earth, members of the public can process the images to create color pictures. The public also helps determine which points on the planet will be photographed. Learn more about voting on JunoCam’s next target HERE.

JunoCam has four filters: red, green, blue and near-infrared. We get red, green and blue strips on one spacecraft rotation (the spacecraft rotation rate is 2 revolutions per minute) and the near-infrared strips on the second rotation. To get the final image product, the strips must be stitched together and the colors lined up.

Anything from cropping to color enhancing to collaging is fair game. Be creative!

Submit your images to Juno_outreach@jpl.nasa.gov to be featured on the Mission Juno website!

NASA’s Juno spacecraft just flew the closest any human-built object has come to the biggest storm in our solar system. On July 10, the spacecraft flew just 5,600 miles above Jupiter’s most recognizable feature: the Great Red Spot. It’s a storm that’s raged for 350 years, and it’s so large it could swallow Earth whole!

Solar System: Things to Know This Week

Jupiter, we’ve got quite the photoshoot planned for you. Today, our Juno spacecraft is flying directly over the Great Red Spot, kicking off the first-ever close-up study of this iconic storm and passing by at an altitude of only 5,600 miles (9,000 kilometers). In honor of this historic event, below are 10 things to know about the planet’s most famous feature.

1. A Storm That Puts Others to Shame

The Great Red Spot is a gigantic, high-pressure, ancient storm at Jupiter’s southern hemisphere that’s one of the longest lasting in the solar system. It’s so large, about 1.3 Earths could fit inside of it. And you can bet you’ll get swept away—the storm’s tumultuous winds peak at about 400 mph.

2. How Old Is It? 

The Great Red Spot has been swirling wildly over Jupiter’s skies for the past 150 years—maybe even much longer. While people saw a big spot on Jupiter when they started stargazing through telescopes in the 1600s, it’s still unclear whether they were looking at a different storm. Today, scientists know the Great Red Spot has been there for a while, but they still struggle to learn what causes its swirl of reddish hues.

3. Time for That Close-Up 

Juno will fly over the Great Red Spot about 12 minutes after the spacecraft makes the closest approach to Jupiter of its current orbit at 6:55 p.m. on July 10, PDT (9:55 p.m. on July 10, EDT; 1:55 a.m. on July 11, Universal Time). Juno entered orbit around Jupiter on July 4, 2016.

4. Oh, So Mysterious 

Understanding the Great Red Spot is not easy, and it’s mostly Jupiter’s fault. The planet a thousand times as big as Earth and consists mostly of gas. A liquid ocean of hydrogen surrounds its core, and the atmosphere consists mostly of hydrogen and helium. That translates into no solid ground (like we have on Earth) to weaken storms. Also, Jupiter’s clouds make it hard to gather clear observations of its lower atmosphere.

5. Help From Hawaii 

To assist Juno’s investigation of the giant planet’s atmosphere, Earth-based telescopes lent their helpful eyes. On May 18, 2017, the Gemini North telescope and the Subaru Telescope—both located on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea peak—simultaneously examined Jupiter in very high resolutions at different wavelengths. These latest observations helped provide information about the Great Red Spot’s atmospheric dynamics at different depths and at other regions of Jupiter.

6. Curious Observations 

Observations from Subaru showed the Great Red Spot “had a cold and cloudy interior increasing toward its center, with a periphery that was warmer and clearer,” said Juno science team member Glenn Orton of our Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. “A region to its northwest was unusually turbulent and chaotic, with bands that were cold and cloudy, alternating with bands that were warm and clear.”

7. Hot in Here 

Scientists were stumped by a particular question: Why were the temperatures in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere comparable to those found at Earth, even though Jupiter is more than five times the distance from the sun? If the sun isn’t the heat source, then what is? Turns out, the storm in the Great Red Spot produces two kinds of turbulent energy waves that collide and heat the upper atmosphere. Gravity waves are much like how a guitar string moves when plucked, while acoustic waves are compressions of the air (sound waves). Heating in the upper atmosphere 500 miles (800 kilometers) above the Great Red Spot is thought to be caused by a combination of these two wave types “crashing,” like ocean waves on a beach.

8. Color Theory 

Scientists don’t know exactly how the Great Red Spot’s rich colors formed. Studies predict Jupiter’s upper atmosphere has clouds consisting of ammonia, ammonium hydrosulfide, and water, but it’s still unclear how or even whether these chemicals react. “We’re talking about something that only makes up a really tiny portion of the atmosphere,” said Amy Simon, an expert in planetary atmospheres at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “That’s what makes it so hard to figure out exactly what makes the colors that we see.” Over at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, researchers concluded that the ruddy color is likely a product of simple chemicals being broken apart by sunlight in the planet’s upper atmosphere. “Our models suggest most of the Great Red Spot is actually pretty bland in color, beneath the upper cloud layer of reddish material,” said Kevin Baines, a Cassini scientist at JPL.

9. Been There, Haven’t Seen That 

In January and February 1979, NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft zoomed toward Jupiter, capturing images of the Great Red Spot during its approach. Still, we’ve never been as close as we’re about to get during Juno’s flyover on July 10.

10. Simply Beautiful 

This image of a crescent Jupiter and the iconic Great Red Spot was created by a citizen scientist, Roman Tkachenko, using data from Juno’s JunoCam instrument. JunoCam’s raw images are available here for the public to peruse and enhance.Want to learn more? Read our full list of the 10 things to know this week about the solar system HERE.

Juno in Astrology

Juno is an asteroid discovered on September the 1st in 1804, and is situated between Mars and Jupiter, and in astrology, she is slowly finding her place as playing an important role in marriage and long term relationships (10 + years) - Juno is currently being debated in the astrology community as to being the assigned ruler for Libra, while Venus acts as co-ruler.

Venus is what we desire, what we find attractive and how we wish to receive affection and appreciation, while Juno represents long term committed relationships, loyalty and faithfulness in a partnership. It shows what one needs to feel satisfied in love or romance, or what one feels they need to have a successful, satisfying, long-term partnership.

Through the analysis of a collection of synastry charts between couples, a high percentage we’re married (or in a long-term committed relationship with) with someone who fulfilled the needs of their natal Juno placement., usually by having the Sun or Moon in the Juno sign (and/or other placements).

Your Juno sign, house placement and aspects can give an additional layer of information about what you need, desire and are likely to manifest in marriage/long-term relationship.

All descriptions below can be applied both to your potential marriage partner AND yourself and the way you act in a long-term commitment.

(Can read sign for house placement - eg : 4th house Juno, read cancer as well as natal sign).

… 

Juno in Aries:

You may desire a very strong, masculine and direct marriage partner. A partner who can act as a leader, pave their own path and has a strong sense of who they are. You may desire a marriage partner who will fight for you if necessary (and vice versa), and also someone who is independent and can carry out their own goals without relying too much on you to assist them. You may want to be put first in the relationship, though it can sometimes manifest as your partner putting themselves and their concerns before you instead, which is where the need for ones own independence in the relationship can arise. You and/or the marriage partner certainly do not like being told what to do in the relationship. The marriage partner may also have a sense of impatience about them, wanting to get to step 3 before completing 1 and 2, though they most likely wont adhere to advice. If problems do arise in the relationship, they will be upfront and deal with it before quickly moving on.

The marriage partner may prove to be bold and direct, and perhaps may be somewhat harsh and brash at times, and there is a possibility for an aggressive relationship or a marriage where dispute is common, depending on the house placement and aspects Juno receives, especially any harsh aspects from Mars, Saturn or Pluto. Also be aware of the possibility of the marriage partner dominating the relationship (or yourself) and can be quite temperamental, though sudden outbursts can subside quite quickly.

You may in fact not wish to get married, as your desire for independence can make the concept of marriage uncomfortable for you.On the other hand, you may marry simply out of impulsion. This placement can also manifest the possibility of remaining single throughout life.

Your most successful relationship will have a great sense of independence and individuality, whereby both you and your partner are able to do as they please without relying too heavily on the opinion or direction of the other.

Juno in Taurus

You may desire a marriage partner with a stable and consistent income, whereby they are able to financially support you in marriage. They may be incredibly hard workers and be very involved in their own projects. You may desire a relaxed and down to earth partner, who you can spend time with in the comforts of your own home. You may desire a marriage partner with a natural sense of beauty or is naturally attractive. Your marriage partner may be quite sensual and hedonistic, enjoying touching and caressing, and lots of exchange of physical pleasure between the both of you. You especially want peace and tranquility in the relationship, whereby neither of you want to intentionally stir each other. You both may enjoy indulging in good food and other material comforts together, happily lazing around doing very little in each others company. You may also both enjoy spending time in nature or natural settings, and you could potentially both decide to move to a country area together away from the hustle of larger communities (many other chart factors need to be evident for this).

Most of all, you desire a stable and secure marriage that has been built upon reliable foundations. Once you marry, you want to keep it that way. You may strongly disagree with divorce, and if that ever became a possibility, you (or your partner) would do everything in their personal power to avoid that situation. You want the comfort in security and stability of marriage.

If afflicted, there is possibility of the partner being over materialistic, caring too much about your income and what you buy, and therefore being rather restrictive and cheap when it comes to buying things. You may also choose to marry someone simply for the sake of financial security, especially if you’re struggling materially on your own. The marriage partner may be quite stubborn and set in their ways, to the point where their mannerisms and routines becomes highly predictable

Ultimately you desire a grounded and reliable marriage partnership where the security of knowing your partner will stay with you, and also having the security of material resources between you and your partner.

Juno in Gemini

With this placement you may desire an intellectual marriage partner who has fantastic communication skills, often engaging in daily conversation whether through phone calls, emails, texts and speaking face to face together. You may marry someone who keeps in constant contact with you, often telling you where they are and what they are doing if always from you (often in the local town or at work). Your marriage partner may be quite witty, humorous and have a youthful expression and personality, or may in fact be younger than you. The may love to socialise and get amongst the local community setting, which may mean they often travel back and forth from home quite frequently. You may have met the marriage partner through an online dating service or another social media platform. They may have also been a neighbour or simply someone from your local town where you grew up.

With Juno in Gemini, there’s also possibilities of having one more marriage in your life.

If afflicted, you or the marriage partner may have cheated within the relationship which ultimately causes a separation and a re-marriage to someone else. They may also be unpredictable and unreliable when it comes to promises and deadlines you give them. They may say they’ll do something, though it ends up falling through. Gemini has no particular intent on keeping to a certain path, so there still is a possibility with this placement not to be married at all. The marriage partner may often have unpredictable mood swings, based on their rationality of things, therefore needing clear communication of things in order for them to avoid episodes of anxiety.

Ultimately what you desire in a long-term relationship is variety, communication, someone who is intellectual and social, and can keep the relationship fresh and interesting.

Juno in Cancer

You may desire marriage to establish strong family foundations. You may want a marriage partner who is gentle, sensitive and caring, and can easily get on well with members of your family and particularly your mother (or mother figure). You desire a marriage partner who can commit and provide a sense of emotional security, who also tends to stay at home and/or takes care of the home. They may also enjoy cooking for you, and you for them. Your marriage partner may be emotionally intuitive and sensitive, and enjoys staying close to your side, offering physical affection whenever possible. They may be quite protective of you, and will defend you in times of need. You may marry due to your family traditions, and/or wish to continue the family tradition (yours or theirs) after marriage, continuing activities you or your partner experienced during their childhood. The marriage partner may also wish to start a family, and you or the partner may strongly wish to become a parent after marriage.

If afflicted, you or the marriage partner may be quite moody and/or clingy, making it hard for independence in the marriage. They may be emotional vulnerable, and desire you to ‘mother’ them in the relationship, rather than act like a traditional marriage partner. They can also be quite clingy and smothering, never really allowing you your own independent need for space. Their sentimentality about things past in the relationship may be brought up, and they may become quite emotional and cranky if you were to forget an anniversary.

Ultimately what you desire in a marriage partner is loyalty, openness and sympathy, emotional connection, care, security and perhaps to start your own family and to continue family traditions.

Juno in Leo

You may desire a bold, expressive and charismatic partner. You want the marriage partner to make you feel special in the relationship, and be quite romantic and affectionate, never forgetting to remind you how much they love you, spoiling you with surprises and courteous gestures and tokens of appreciation. They may have a very strong and dignified personality, and you can find charismatic leadership ability quite attractive. Your marriage partner may be quite playful and humorous, extruding a sunny disposition and approaching the marriage with a copious amount of energy and enthusiasm. You want to be able to take pride in your partner, not being afraid to show them off and express how closely bonded you are to them. You want to be able to share a spotlight with your partner where you feel like you are the only two in the world. You desire to experience warmth and generosity in the marriage throughout your time spent together.

If Juno is afflicted, or especially if aspected by Jupiter with this placement, you may experience the marriage partner to be overwhelming, and trying to outshine you in the marriage as the one who tends to ‘call the shots’ as to  where you’re going, what you two will do together and when. This sense of bossiness can be quite unsettling, and their sense of pride may get in the way of them expressing affection to you in public or in front of friends and/or family. At times, they may over-dramatically react to situations in the relationship, causing unnecessary drama for the sake of causing drama. They may also become quite jealous and defensive over you.

What you desire in a long term committed relationship is ultimately consistent love, affection and appreciation, even if that means them simply saying “I love you” every now and again, fun and playfulness, generosity, excitement, and above all, loyalty.

Juno in Virgo

With this placement, you may desire a long-term relationship with someone who is practical, observant, orderly and has strong work ethic. You may wish to be committed to someone who has a selfless and giving nature, who enjoys helping you with daily tasks and taking care of the home life. You may attract a rather modest partner, who doesn’t indulge too much in extravagant romantic gestures, but expresses their love and affection through being of help to you in anyway you ask or need. They may take great time and care in getting to know you down to the finest detail so that they can apply themselves to doing things the exact way you like it to make you happy (example, taking note exactly what your favourite hot beverage is and making it exactly how you like it). They may clean and take the initiative to help you order and structure your daily routine and if required, help you with work. The partner may also be a diligent worker themselves, applying themselves to their own job and providing the partnership with a stable and steady income for the both of you. They may also be quite concerned for your health and wellbeing, happily taking care of you best they can on your sick days.

If afflicted, the partner may be overly critical and and faulty finding in the things you do and the way you do them. They may have the compulsion to brush you to the side when they feel ‘You’re not doing it right’ when you simply just aren’t doing something THIER way, which can ultimately make you frustrated. They may complain about the most mundane incidences which may get on your nerves. They may also be a workaholic, often not giving you enough attention and appreciation.  

Ultimately what you desire in a marriage or long-term partnership is dependability and punctuality whereby they follow through when they say they will do something and when, cleanliness and practicality, has a stable day-to-day job to earn money for the both of you.

Juno in Libra

With this placement, you may desire a traditional marriage and long-term partnership whereby you and your partner are as equally committed to one another in the relationship. You desire a stable, balanced and fair marriage partner, one that can see and understand your point of view, and even if they disagree, they can find a compromise and see a value in your opinion on things. You desire someone who is fair and respectful of you and the things you do and happily returns the favour to you. You desire a long-term partner who is open about communicating and aims to settle any dispute before they get out of hand. You want someone who is a traditional romantic, and never forgets to express their love and affection for you. The marriage partner may be quite attractive and have a wonderful sense of style, and may be somewhat artistic, or at least has an appreciation of beauty and the arts. They may be quite charming and charismatic and perhaps rather social, and have a strong sense of justice and may have an interest in government or law.

If Juno is afflicted, the marriage partner may fabricate truth in order to cover something that they’ve done or not being truthful in their opinion. They may be quite indecisive about things which can make the relationship frustrating if decisions are always left for you and also, it may make them lazy when it comes to choosing and pursing something in life. They may also be manipulative towards you if they don’t like someone, telling you things about them to make you alternate your perspective so you can dislike them as a couple - while what they had said may not have been true, they want your reassurance that they are still the ‘good guy’, and as a marriage partner they demand that support from you. They may also be indecisive about getting married or the relationship itself

Ultimately what you desire in a long-term committed partnership is fairness, balance, harmony, communication and understanding one another perspective, love and diplomacy, compromise and beauty in the relationship.

Juno in Scorpio

With this placement, you desire an intense and deep connection to your marriage partner, where you unite all aspects of your body, mind and soul. You want passion and security in the sense of deep intimacy in your relationship, knowing your partner is truly connected to you and will stay by your side giving you their full devotion. You may find yourself transformed as a person after marriage, perhaps in the house area your Juno is placed. The partner may be deeply sexual and passionate, and together you share highly intense intimate moments, going through emotional highs and lows, though in the end it can feel rejuvenating leaving you feeling the high of being alive, which may be quite healing for you. You want to be able to trust your partner with all of your deepest secrets, and except all of your flaws and your past hardships, whereby being with them can allow healing of yourself and your past and anything you may face in the future.

If afflicted, Juno in Scorpio can manifest a very possessive partner who may try and control what you’re doing, where you’re going, and who you socialise with. They may easily become jealous and you need to constantly reassure them of your commitment to them, even if you feel its unnecessary. They may be quite secretive and mysterious which may make it frustrating for you to know what they want and to understand them better. They can also be quite self-destructive which can make the relationship exceedingly difficult. At times, their nature can become highly overbearing but once they break down they tend to build themselves back up again, especially with your assistance and presence.

Ultimately what you want in a marriage or long-term committed partnership is deep connection, passion, intense intimacy, sex, to share each others emotional highs and lows, unwavering commitment, and the power to get through any challenged you face together.

Juno in Sagittarius

With this placement, there is a very high need for freedom in a long-term partnership, and this placement be the most likely to avoid marriage simple because you (or the potential partner) doesn’t want to feel caged in a legally documented commitment. If you do choose to get married you need an extensive amount of freedom to come and go as you please, and to do what you want and when. The marriage partner on the other hand may be quite open natured, optimistic and humorous. They may have a philosophical and expansive outlook on life, and can unconsciously take on a spiritual direction in life because of their open-mindedness. They may have a passion for travel and exploring foreign countries and experiencing different cultures. You may in fact meet the marriage partner overseas, or they are originally from a foreign country.

They may be quite jovial and fun, always encouraging you to go on an adventure somewhere new with them.

If afflicted, the marriage partner may care about their personal freedom so much that they are unwilling to commit. They don’t want to be tied down and therefore have a back and forth nature in terms of the relationship by where you get too close, and they pull away. They may stumble into a marriage without much forethought of what that actually entails, then once the realisation sets in, they may opt for a divorce (but may even still want a relationship - just without a title), which may make this quite frustrating for you. The partner may be exceedingly hard to pin down and they may be quite reluctant to open up emotionally.

Ultimately what you desire in a long-term commitment relationship is FREEDOM, fun and light heartedness, changeability to keep it interesting and a constant learning experience, open-mindedness, traveling together and playfulness.

Juno in Capricorn

You desire the security and reliability found in marriage, and you want the relationship to be built on a strong foundation of knowing the partner very well before you are willing to commit. Once you have married, you do not want to separate from the partner and will do whatever is in your personal power to bring structure back to the relationship. You may attract a very hardworking and dutiful partner, who may be heavily involved in their own work life and career. They may express a very authorise stance in the relationship, and be quite serious in their personality nature. They may expect you and themselves to take traditional roles in marriage, or that they insist on being the ‘leader’ in the relationship. They may be significantly older than you and be quite conventional in the way they do things and structure the marriage life. They may be quite dutiful and take on the most difficult tasks, and also the responsibility of maintain the relationship, especially when it comes to providing the both of you with income. They may not be the most demonstrative and overly affectionate partner, but they express their love and devotion through their actions and providing for you.

If afflicted, the marriage partner may be quite cold and pessimistic, and they seem to force the authoritative role in a relationship and set you a role which they expect you to fill. Their lack of affection and romantic gestures can be quite disheartening for you, and their lack of gratification if you give to them may also make you feel unappreciated. They can also be overly controlling, dictating where you go and when, which you can greatly detest in the relationship. Also, their devotion to their job and work can leave you feeling lonely at times.

Ultimately what you desire in a marriage is comfort in traditional and conventional commitment, practicality and dutifulness, a hard worker, someone to prove for you, someone who can take leadership and is self-disciplined.

Juno in Aquarius

With this placement, you may desire a marriage partner who is a humanitarian that has a large social circle, whereby they know many people from many different places and therefore you can go with them to interact with a variety of people and gain new experiences. You may want a partner who is quite friendly and idealistic, one who is innovative and progressive in the way they do things, either for themselves or for the benefit of a larger extent of people. You may greatly desire a highly intellectual partner, who’s emotional detachment from things and people allows them to see things from an objective perspective. They may greatly enjoy socialising with anyone at any given time, and you may find yourself doing the same with them, even if it wasn’t something you would intentionally do previous to meeting and forming a relationship (or marriage) with this person. They may also express a sense of duty and authority, but more in an intellectual leadership manner than by commanding a following. There may be something eccentric or unconventional about the marriage partner, and this can include their personal interests, their likes and/or dislikes, or simply a significant age difference which is seen as unusual in society.

If afflicted, the partner may be quite emotionally withdrawn and detached. Although you may know they hold affections for you, they may have trouble expressing it due to their highly intellectual nature and they may uphold their masculine qualities too much to the point where its difficult to become emotionally vulnerable to you. If you attempt to openly express your emotions towards them, they may distance themselves from you.

There can also be a fear of commitment, from you or your partner with this placement, often withholding marriage, if you ever do decide to get married. It’s not uncommon with this placement for the native to stay single for life because of their choosing. You (or they) may value ones personal freedom and need for experimentation above the need for a solid relationship, which can mean manifesting as an open relationship.

Ultimately what you desire in a long-term committed relationship is to have your own sense of personal freedom and space, socialisation with others together, having new experiences, genuine friendship with the marriage partner, understanding and tolerance of ones own eccentricities.

Juno in Pisces

With this placement, you desire a very sensitive, gentle and romantic marriage partner. You want to be able to get lost in them and their presence and experience unconditional love and care from them. You desire someone who is modest, compassionate and empathetic to you and your needs, as well as being selfless, compassionate and giving to other people. You also may have to take care of the practical side of things for the marriage partner (or vice-versa). The marriage partner may be quite emotionally open and vulnerable, and is eager to care for you in anyway they can. They may at times try to mould themselves to be whatever you want them be. They may also have a soft spot for animals and enjoys caring for all forms of life.  The marriage partner may also have a strong interest in the arts, including painting, acting, film making and/or photography. They may also be interested in caring for other people, giving themselves freely in a sympathetic form of service such as nursing or caring for the elderly, and generally helping those who are underprivileged and less fortunate. There is also the possibility for the marriage partner to be highly intuitive and/or psychic (empath). You may also idealise the potential partner, conjuring a fantasy of getting married to a creation from your imagination. This fantasy may also be projected onto the real life marriage partner, whereby you ignore there flaws and only see them as your idea of perfection.  

If afflicted, the marriage partner may be too overly self-sacrificing to the point of their own detriment. They may either over work or over give themselves for little in return, then they end up playing the victim and express that ‘no one cares about me’ even though they put themselves into that position in the first place - then you end up coming to their rescue, having to coddle them because they refuse to take responsibility for their own actions. They may also be too much of a dreamer and live in their dreams and ideals, and not attempt to put them into action. They may at times become confused or have extremely high or low emotional episodes where you have to make sure you measure them that all will turn out fine in the end. There is also a possibility of drug and alcohol abuse from the partner.

Ultimately what you desire in a  long-term committed relationship is unconditional love and affection, empathy and sympathy, gentleness and modesty, an openly giving personality , and loves you completely for who you are.

Small bright clouds dot Jupiter’s entire south tropical zone in this image acquired by JunoCam on NASA’s Juno spacecraft on May 19, 2017, at an altitude of 7,990 miles (12,858 kilometers). Although the bright clouds appear tiny in this vast Jovian cloudscape, they actually are cloud towers roughly 30 miles (50 kilometers) wide and 30 miles (50 kilometers) high that cast shadows on the clouds below. On Jupiter, clouds this high are almost certainly composed of water and/or ammonia ice, and they may be sources of lightning. This is the first time so many cloud towers have been visible, possibly because the late-afternoon lighting is particularly good at this geometry.
