Juno was the equivalent of the Greeks' Hera, queen of the gods.
Every year, on the first of March, women held a festival in honor of Juno called the Matronalia . On July 7 was another festival in her honor, the Nonae Caprotinae ("The Nones of the Wild Fig"). Many people consider the month of June, which is named after the goddess who is the patroness of marriage, to be the most favorable time to marry.
Juno's own warlike aspect among the Romans is apparent in her attire. She often appeared armed and wearing a goatskin cloak, which was the garment favoured by Roman soldiers on campaign. This warlike aspect was assumed in Greece by Athene, whose goatskin was called the aegis.
