  • English: In Roman mythology, every man had a genius and every woman a juno (Juno was also the name for the queen of the gods). Originally, the genius/juno were ancestors who guarded over their descendants. Over time, they turned into personal guardian spirits, granting intellect and prowess. Sacrifices were made to one's genius/juno on one's birthday.
