Once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid, on a dolphin’s back,
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song;
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid’s music.
Shakespeare, Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act II, Scene 1
Sigh, deep and contentedly. After months of turbulent skies, June brings a chance to kick back and relax. Savor it! Watch a movie in the park, treat yourself to your favorite ice cream, or have a picnic under the stars with your friends.
Some of the best astrological days of the year are coming up this month, particularly in the second half of June. Now is a great time to start new projects or commitments. The longest day of the year, the summer solstice, is on June 20. Breathe in the midsummer magic. Dance!
