June..... Juno/Hera's Month

June is the sixth month of the year. It was the fourth month in the early Roman calendar, and once had 29 days.
When Julius Caesar reformed the calendar, he gave the month 30 days and made it the sixth.


June is named after the Roman Great Mother goddess Juno, the Greek Hera. This is the time of maximum light and minimum darkness. Juno is the divine watcher over the female sex and the month of June is held to be the most favorable for marrying.

I married my true love on the 20th of June.  We will be celebrating our 39th anniversary.
I raise a glass to Juno/Hera and will think of and honor her all this month.
