In the Northern hemisphere, June is host to the longest daylight hours of the year. One theory is that the name derives from the Roman goddess, Juno, the goddess of marriage. Perhaps that is why it is such a popular month not just for births, but for weddings.

June is also the month to celebrate the amazing fathers out there, with Father's Day on the third Sunday of the month.

Jewelry lovers rejoice. June lays claim to three birthstones: pearl, alexandrite, and moonstone. “In ancient Greece, pearls were thought to be formed when the tears of joy that fell from the eyes of goddess Aphrodite hardened.” The stones symbolize purity, creativity, and longevity.

The zodiac signs for June babies are Gemini (until June 20) and Cancer (June 21 forward).

  • Gemini – Symbolized by the twins, their dual nature is shown in their sign. While they may be prone to mood swings, they are also imaginative, generous, and affectionate.
  • Cancer – Symbolized by the crab, they enjoy tradition and history. While they need their alone time they are loyal and dependable friends.
