How quickly May came and went!
June, of brighter sunnier days, and longer lighter evenings.
It is the second of the shorter months with 30 days.
June was named after the Roman goddess Juno. It is taken from an archaic word luno meaning young, suggesting vitality, radiant energy, growth and fertility! As well as a strong connection to motherhood and femininity; it holds space for the patron parent Zeus here representing fatherhood, thus making it a month representing ‘Balance’ on the presentness of the mother and father. Fathers Day is celebrated this year on Sunday 18th June.
It has been known for young couple choosing this month to get married. There are a few precious stones, plant, and flowers, associated with June. The stones are Alexandrite, moonstone, and pearl. And strength and fertility of the oak, and the intoxicatingly beautiful scent of the honeysuckle and rose.
