“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tired into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
Welcome to June. June is a month for plugging ourselves into the wider world. It’s a perfect time for creating or joining teams, for travel, for organising help, for forming new relationships and strengthening our relationship with ourself.
Cards for the Month:
I’ve chosen two cards for May for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.
Here is what I have received from each card:
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” ~ Helen Keller
June is all about connection. Connection to friends and family. Connection to social networks, connections in the workplace, and connections to the world-wide-web. No matter who you are, or where you are, look for opportunities to reach out and connect with other people. Have you been thinking of someone lately whom you haven’t seen for a while? Call them up, invite them for coffee, or drop by and say hi.
Travel. Get out and see a little bit more of your corner of the world, or further afield. Let June have a little adventure in it for you!
Everyone needs a team, and June is the perfect energy for expanding yours. Your team is anyone who helps you in some way. Your dentist, the person who makes your coffee in the morning, the place where you buy your groceries – all of these people are as much a part of your team as the people you work with or your family members.
We all need to help each other, and having a team we can rely on is vital to sustainability, wellbeing and managing stress effectively. Teams amplify energy and creativity. They relieve our burdens and help us all to grow.
June reminds us not to overreach. The thing we don’t enjoy doing or aren’t good at is someone else’s favourite thing, just as you can do things easily that other people might find hard. Who needs you on
their team? How could you help them?
June is also about where you can make a difference.
Take time this month for connecting with people who are important to you, and who make you feel good. Build your team. Put your hand up to be part of someone else’s. How can you be the solution to someone else’s problem?
“Fair exchange is no robbery.” ~ L.A. Banks
The second card I’ve chosen is Exchanging Gifts. It’s a sensible message of caution that supports the initial card about connection.
This card reminds us that there needs to be fair energetic exchange when we put our talents and gifts out into the world. Don’t work for free unless you need the experience or you are happy to donate your time and efforts.
Don’t give time (or any other gift) to those who won’t value it. Limit your exposure to the users of the world, especially those who are habitual takers in your life.
Be generous with praise where it is deserved, and support where it feels right. Sometimes our payment is in the satisfaction of having lived true to our values – helping another who had nothing to give in return.
This month you can make incredible progress in your life. Don’t let it be derailed by people who are selfish and clueless and who make it all about them. Set clear boundaries and make sure to hang out with people who encourage and uplift you.
Best crystals this month?
Moonstone helps us to tune in to the energies of the people around us. It supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability.
This is a super stone to wear as a ring, bracelet or pendant.
Carnelian is a joyful stone of creativity and passion that helps keep us motivated,
inspired and energised. Wonderful if you feel depleted or exhausted as it provides a great boost to your physical body.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Try this sublime diffuser blend of 6 drops of Lemongrass, 5 drops of Joy (a Young Living blend) and 1 drop of Vetiver. This fragrance is uplifting, refreshing and the Vetiver gives that touch of grounding. If you don’t have Vetiver use a drop of Cedarwood instead. Instead of Joy you could substitute 2 drops of Geranium, 2 drops of Ylang Ylang and 1 drop of Bergamot. My fairy friend Sokli calls this her Wake Up Happy! blend. You can find the oils here.

June is a month for living a little more loudly, a little more joyfully, a little more fully. It’s a month for connection and reconnection. For adventures and for honouring your value. Enjoy this fabulous month. I know I will , as I travel around Asia and Europe on my own big adventure!
Sending all my love to you, Nicole ♥ xx
