June is the most popular month for uniting relationships and marriages. The ancient Romans believed that everyone
should marry in June. June represents the Goddess of marriage, “Juno.” Roman women counted on the Goddess Juno to watch
out for them. Juno looked out for the women, especially the married women. On March 1, the Romans would honor Juno with a great festival.
Father’s day is Sunday June 17, 2018. Father’s day started in 1910. Sonora Louise Smart’s father raised her as a single parent. He was a civil war veteran raising six children. Soon after Sonora heard about Mother’s day starting in 1909, and he asked her pastor if they could celebrate a similar holiday for fathers. He agreed, and the first Father’s day was June 19, 1910.

June 21st Midsummer/ Litha/ Summer Solstice
*Longest Day of the year*
Litha is traditionally a time for celebrating the fairy-folk. One could go looking for fairies in the woods during Midsummer solstice, especially on Midsummers Eve. (Shakespeare’s – A Midsummer Night’s Dream takes place on this day and is a comical example of what could happen.) It’s also a time when the Holy King takes over from the Sun King and begins his rule once again over the waning year.

Meranda’s Full Moon Ritual
Since there’s a worldwide bee shortage, it seems like a good idea to work a little magic for their benefit, both to protect and to bring healing. A simple way to lend them energy, both magically and physically, is to charm a plant so that the bees will have a place to gather pollen and absorb the energy. Good plants to use include sage, thyme, rosemary or lavender.
Plant of power,
Nourish their bodies, renew;
Healing to all, dis-ease reverse,
Strengthen the bees that come to you.
Plant in a garden or outside to attract the bees.

Numerology with Kim
This month we will experience the nurturing energy of the number 6, as this number is associated with home, health and loving relationships.
If we stop and think about it, since June comes immediately after the end of the school year, this is the time that families are planning vacations or activities in an effort to spend more time together. This is the universe’s way of reconnecting us after a period of time of constant motion. Take advantage of this opportunity by reconnecting with the ones important to you- Take in a movie, spend the day at the beach, whatever it is that you enjoy doing together.
The number 6 is also associated with community service, which is interesting because June is when summer vacation starts for students and their new-found freedom affords them the opportunity to volunteer. Don’t be surprised to find yourself with a sense of wanting to help others this month, whether it is volunteering at a summer camp, or helping a friend through a hard time.
The vibration of the number 6 also brings a conscientious energy to our lives. This month, don’t rush any decisions. Take your time and weigh all of your options before moving forward.

In 2018, Mercury will only be retrograde during the date ranges of:
- July 26 to August 19
- November 17 to December 6
During this time there are problems with communication, travel delays, contracts, automobiles, and electronics. Make sure all contracts are signed before. Allow extra time for travel and avoid signing any contracts. Try not to make any final decisions.
Retrograde means moving in the opposite direction of flow. That is why we feel out of sort during mercury in retrograde. I usually load up on crystals that helps make the transition easy. For instance, Cherry quartz is good for anxiety, vision, healing, Amazonite is a soothing stone good for seeing both sides and different points of view. During this time I also journal. How that we are out of retrograde I will take my journal out and go over lessons I made during the retrograde period.

Herbs here can be grown year round if you are growing them in the right part of the year. Passionflower loves the tropical heat of our Florida summer. It grows in Zones 9-11, making our area the northern most zone that it grows. The plant needs almost no care or watering and will grow vigorously until the first frost kills it. It grows anywhere you plant it and needs no fertilizing. As a vine its perfect for climbing trellises or covering up fences. It comes back every spring, but rarely in the same place you planted it. It can be found in nurseries and herb farms locally and can be purple, blue or red flowers.
The entire plant is edible from the elaborate flower to the leaves and fruit. Passionflower is a great herb if you have anxiety issues or are just going through a tough time and need help relaxing. It starts relaxing you in less than 20 minutes usually and the effects last anywhere from 4-6 hours. As a sleep aid it can be helpful in helping someone fall asleep, but not to stay asleep.
Cooking with it is a great way to relax the whole family over dinner, the leaves have no real taste which means it’s easy to use. The only real side effect is that it can cause drowsiness, so make sure you try it out and see how you feel. Use the flower as a tea and enjoy the effects of this lovely plant.
