June, the sixth month of the current Gregorian calendar and the first month of Summer, derives its name from the ancient Roman goddess Juno. The traditional birthstone amulets of June are alexandrite, moonstone, and pearl; and the rose is this month's traditional flower.
June is shared by the astrological signs of Gemini the Twins and Cancer the Crab, and is sacred to the following deities: Juno, and all gods and goddesses who preside over love, passion, and beauty. During the month of June, the Great Solar Wheel of the Year is turned to the Summer Solstice.
On June 1 the festival of the Oak Nymph is celebrated. This celebration honors all hamadryads (female nature spirits who are believed to inhabit oak trees). Place a small offering of some kind before the oak tree and the tree nymphs who dwell within it will surely bestow a blessing upon you.
The Oak Tree is the tree of truth. It is ancient and wise and has an old spirit. It is an important tree for the druids. The mistletoe of the oak tree has many magickal properties. It is also a marriage tree and it is said that if you dance around the oak tree and wear some of it's leaves you will have a long and happy marriage. If there is a question in your heart that you cannot find the answer to, go to an oak tree and embrace it and ask the spirit of the oak tree to answer your question. If the answer is something you should know, the oakman will send you a prophetic dream.
You need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. A village means that you are not alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the earth, there is something that belongs to you, waiting for you when you are not there. ~Casare Pavese

My Sexton's Hail From Limerick
Never permit yourself to become the weak link in the chain of your generations.
Welcome! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in and relax with me awhile. As you'll notice, I am captivated by ancient times, a soul misplaced in this modern day. I have a love for my ancestry and I believe people who grow up without a sense of how yesterday has affected today, are unlikely to have a strong sense of how today affects tomorrow.
