In Roman times, June was the fourth month and contained only 29 days. This changed in 46 B.C.E. with the reform of the calendar. This month is especially welcome in northern climates, with spring ending between June 20 and 22, making way for warm summer weather. The month opens with the restless, active sign of Gemini, and closes with Cancer. In the Far East, the snake governs June, a creature of wisdom, humor, and charisma that has particular good fortune with money. Numerologically June adds up to 8, implying abundance.
