Happy June Birthday, Friend and Nurturer!


Although popular, even to the extreme, those born during the month of June are most comfortable socializing at home, whether it’s their home or someone else’s cozy nook. Most at ease with the close-knit circle of friends they grew up with, they treat their friends like family.


Those born under the sign of the twins, Gemini, love to communicate. Talking on the phone, text messaging, emails, letter-writing…you name it, chances are Gemini loves it! You tend to have as many friends as ways to communicate with each. Not to mention, a wonderful way with words! For all you know, you were scribbling little masterpieces since before you could crawl. Short little notes, poetry, short stories, or the next great American novel, your mind is always buzzing with words to put down on paper.


Those born in the sign of Cancer have a connection to the Moon, as their emotional well-being can be closely linked the Moon’s phases. Some may call you moody, but really, you’re simply going with the flow alongside the latest lunar state, whether it’s waxing or waning. Like the crab, the animal associated with Cancer, you have a tough exterior that protects and nurtures your softer, sensitive inner world. Nothing is more important to you than family, although who you consider your “family” may vary, for home is where your heart is. A bookkeeper of memories, you remember what matters most to yourself and others, filing it away in your heart to bring yourself some joy on days when you could use cheering up.

June Flower 

08-12652-00-00Your birth flower, the Rose, derives its name from the Latin rosa, which traced back further means “flower.” Rich with history, roses has been blossoming for millions of years. According the Roman legend, when Rodanthe turned away a great many suitors bent on marrying her, the goddess, Diana, turned Rodanthe into a rose and her overeager admirers into thorns. Flowering in a variety of colors, each carries its own meaning: red—“I love you”; white—spiritual love; yellow—joy and faithfulness; pink—“thank you”; to name a few.

 June Birthstone

One cultural story tells that the pearl was born when a drop of rain from heaven fell into the oyster, becoming its heart. Pearls have been referred to as “teardrops of the moon,” and have been used in meditation and to assist in spiritual transformation. They are also known to relieve stress and even balance the solar plexus chakra. .

Your June Birthday – The Rose, the Pearl, and You!









If it’s not enough for you to be born in the same month as Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie, consider the iridescent qualities of the pearl or the illustrious beauty of the rose.  Those incredible symbols of joy are reminders that you have a lot of fabulous qualities to share with those around you.

For one thing, you are fiercely faithful and loyal to the people you love. Your friendship means the world to those in your intimate circle because they know they can always count on you.  Your personal mantra is to be steadfast and true.  Just like the mollusk whose interior shell is washed over and over again with sandy irritants, waiting years for the treasures it knows are meant to be, you wait patiently for the good things in life for yourself and others.  You are adaptable and lively, clever and artistic.  You too know how to produce genuine pearls of joy.

As a constant communicator, it’s appropriate that your birth flower would be a rose.  In the Victorian Era, roses were the secret code of those who were not yet allowed to speak of their connection or their love for each other.  Yellow roses said, “I’m not worthy of you.”  Pink roses implored, “Please believe me!”  Alas, red roses were the message of love, the passionate symbol of unspoken delight.  The long stemmed beauties in red and white spoke even more loudly saying, “We’re inseparable, we were meant for each other.”

Yes, you are indeed a passionate flower, a generous spirit and a loving heart.   You lift up those around you no matter how much work it takes, never giving up, never giving in to doubt or fear.  You know that it often takes work for a pearl to be born and nothing is more important to you than seeing the goodness of life, in fullness and abundance.

Celebrating Your April Birthday!









Like the diamond that signifies balance and clarity and abundance, you’re the jewel in the crown of life.  Your beautiful birthstone radiates the courage and spark by which you take on the world, and like a diamond, you’re multi-faceted.  You have a fiery passion for the things you believe in and a “can-do” attitude that is second to none.  You know who you are and where you stand and that always makes you a force to be reckoned with.

Though some may see you as slightly impulsive, they admire you for the dynamic ways you share the strength of your convictions.  They know they can trust you to come to the table with ideas to share, and strategies to make things better, even if you’re simply planning a dinner party or an extended vacation.

You have a pioneering spirit, are fiercely independent and strong on one hand, believing that the shortest distance between two points is indeed a straight line, but you’re also trusting, even child-like at heart, believing in the best the world has to offer.

So celebrate being wonderful you and keep shining.  No matter what life brings your way, you’re going to make it into an adventure.  Have a fabulous birthday!
