June 2024 ~ Tarot, Flower, Crystal and Spirit Animal

June

In sharing the meaning and changes of the Months, it is my hope that it plants seeds of awareness, that the calendar we currently live by is only a marking tool for mankind. It is not a true reflection of our planets natural calendar. Remember we are part of nature not apart from nature.


June is the sixth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. June had 30 days, until Numa, when it had 29 days. Then when Julius came along it became 30 days long again.


June in Latin is Junius 'of Juno'. Juno is the main goddess of Roman Pantheon. She is the goddess of marriage & well being of women. She is also identified with the Greek Goddess 'Hera'.


At the start of June, the sun rises in the constellation of Taurus; at the end of June, the sun rises in the constellation of Gemini. However, due to the precession of the equinoxes, June begins with the sun in the astrological sign of Gemini, and ends with the sun in the astrological sign of Cancer. Go figure?



Welcome to June 2024

From the 1st May to 21st June we are in the winter process of refining and defining... letting go, creating space and focusing our energy on what we do want to create, manifest, experience... for we are leading towards Winter Solstice. The deepest trough of Winter.


The seed of light is born in the dark womb of mid-winter, the time we know as the Winter Solstice. Solstice means ‘standstill’. For a few days every year the sun appears to rise and set in the same place.


It is the time of the longest night. Usually the night between 21st June and 22nd June.

That night when even Earth’s very breath seems to falter in the face of the overpowering darkness.


Then, from this night onwards and with such subtlety, the sun begins the long journey towards the opposite pole, and all creation begins to exhale. A cycle of new life can begin once again.


But it only appears as if the sun begins the long journey when reality is it Earth that is turning on her axis, coming full circle yet again. To turn furthest from the sun, light plunging into darkness only to start moving forward yet again into the light.


Gaia going through her cycles of death and rebirth that all of nature understands and obeys.


The nature of Winter Solstice may evoke within us a deep sense of loss and a letting go of what no longer has endured. It has been a journeying into aspects of ourselves that we were ready to see and change.


If not, that's ok, they will be back around again.


4 Temperance - June Tarot

Primary Principle: Self Control

Positive: Harmony/Health/Peace

Co-operation ~ Compromise ~ Moderation

This card reflects the importance of a constant flow between the conscious and sub-conscious, the missing and blending of the two to find the right balance.


Need for balance in a relationship. A need for a flow of feeling in a relationship. Wise management. A situation revealing a new factor, an opportunity to be seized or a renewal in your life or in a relationship.


Patience during difficult experiences. Working together to produce results. Compromise. A feeling of stagnation within a relationship may develop otherwise the potential for a happy relationship is also indicated. Things you thought you had completed or handled may resurface to ‘test’ you to your very core, but by utilising patience & self-control, will bring about a positive result.


The right ideas or actions will be provided, but it will take special effort or concentration to use them to your advantage.


It can be said that this card represents an angel or guardian spirit looking over you.


Look at both sides/facts/feelings for this will enable you to be both objective and compassionate.


Introduction: Temperance is about balance, and relationships of all kinds. Friendships, family, romantic partnerships, and work partnerships all need your attention. Also about alchemy or mixing and matching. You may have to try several approaches before you find what is truly right for you.

General: In general your relationships are going quite well. You may need to look at your deeper personal issues and see if or how these are standing in your way. And if they are, how to work through them and integrate them. Do what it takes to find balance, in yourself, in your relationships.

Work: Aim high, but don't have expectations of yourself or others that you or they can't possibly meet. Do your work with patience and with stamina and it will pay off for you in the long run. Your accomplishments will not be overlooked.

Love: Often, before you can really have peace and wisdom in your relationships, you need to have peace within yourself. Look at what you feel guilty about, mistakes that you feel you've made in your past. Then forgive yourself, and let them go. It's the only way you can truly make progress.

Finances: There is likely to be a good balance between what is going out and what is coming in. However, if you need to increase or collect your earnings, you are going to have to ask for what you deserve. Have courage and pride, and you will not fail.

Health: Balance and moderation is the key. Are you eating well, sleeping well, playing and working enough, getting enough exercise? Look at where you might be out of balance and then remedy this. Moderation is definitely the way to good health right now.

Spirituality: This is an important time to meditate and to listen to your inner voice for guidance, and if you need help, to ask for it. Both from your higher self and from others.
