Alternative, Suppressed and otherwise Forgotten  Holidays for the first week of June

Month of Juno – Dedicated to Roman Goddess Juno, partner of Jove (God of Happiness), protector of marriage and family.

Movable Holiday:  sometimes in May, sometimes in June. I really like the esoteric meaning of Pentecost and not just because I had a baby on that day long ago… The Sacred Marriage Holiday is awesome too since June in marriage month worldwide — many choose June for their wedding month, which makes sense since Juno is the Goddess of Marriage. To esotericists the Sacred Marriage also has to do with a Heavenly Mother marrying a Heavenly Father, be it God and Mother-God aka Yahweh and Havah / Asherah / Sophia, El and Elat, or Jove and Juno.  The ancients knew about and celebrated the Sacred Marriage aka the Hieros Gamos.
