June, the sixth month of the current Gregorian calendar and the first month of Summer, derives its name from the ancient Roman goddess Juno. June is known as the month that kicks off the summer season, but here in Florida, we are already feeling deep into it. As temperatures soar and the afternoon rains begin, it becomes a time of retreating indoors. Our friends in the northern states found themselves snowbound in such a way last winter. While inside, dedicate some time to crafting and creating, play board games with loved ones. When you spend time outside, take advantage of the sun at it’s height. Celebrate the Summer Solstice on June 21st and capture some solar energy by placing a stone or crystal outside. Visualize it being imbued with positive energy, vitality and healing. Keep it for yourself or give it as a gift. During a gentle rain, channel your childhood and join someone in the rain for a joyous, cleansing dance outdoors. The Full Moon Strong Sun Moon occurs on June 13th. Take advantage of the cooler evening temperatures to walk outside and notice some of the plants that flower after the sun sets, like the night blooming Cereus. This unusual cactus, which is at it peak in June, is often found climbing vine-like around a tree. This month’s new Moon occurs on June 27th in it’s watery home of Cancer. At this time, try to sink into the deeper meaning behind what’s lived on the surface.

Blessed Be!
