JUNE 2023 Intentions: Joyful unions, abundance & harmony

June is just a few days aways and thus marks the halfway point for 2023. Hard to believe the year is almost half over – time really does fly when you stop and think about it.

On June 21st in the northern hemisphere, we will celebrate Summer Solstice which marks the official start of summer. In other parts of the world, people are preparing for winter festivals. Here in Alberta, we seemed to have skipped spring and went straight into summer like weather. Longer days have arrived with the sun setting around 9pm at night and waking up before 6 am. The trees are in full bloom and everything is starting to turn green thanks to some rain this week.

The large tree outside my balcony is full of life and provides much shaded relief from the sun, and privacy at nighttime for when I want to sit outside.


Spiritual Significance of June

When it comes to spiritual significance, June reminds us it is a time for celebrating life and joy. It is a time for love, weddings and harmonizing unions. Whether with good friends, or your life partners.

If you’re single like me, then now is the time to welcome love into your life. Open yourself up to new people and potential partners. Or new kinds of relationships.

This may mean attending more social events, going on dates, or getting together with friends. Whatever dating might look like in your world. And if you’re happy being single, then take the time to celebrate with friends or loved ones.

June is also the time for picking berries and is known for a time of abundance and prosperity. Working with affirmations and “I am” phrases is encouraged this time of year to bring you some good luck!


This time of year, I look forward to celebrating Midsummer and I can’t help but think of the music from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and this piece by Mendelssohn. A feverish melody that invokes feelings of joy.


My Intentions for June (midsummer)

Now that summer is really underway here, I’m going to make the most of my time at home and try and get outside as much as possible. The one thing that has changed, is I made a nice group of friends in the kink community – all women. We’re going to start meeting once a month for coffee and crafting. I’m excited for this and so is everyone else. It’s a controlled group meaning – invitation only. That means, I’ve found a group where I can just be myself and not have to worry about feeling safe. I love organizing events and meeting new people, so that is my number one focus at this time.

  • Attend my group’s first “coffee and craft” meet! Already scheduled and location picked out. Work on arts & crafts (coloring, wreaths, etc).
  • Decorate bedroom and bring some “green” life to make it cozy. I’ve already got a quilt picked up and color scheme.
  • Spend some time with friends going to markets, or just hanging out at the parks or in backyards. Or on my balcony.
  • Spend at least 1-2 hours outside daily. 1 hour during the day to get sun, and at least 1 hour a night reading. Go for walks when up to it.
  • Tend to my flowers & garden as needed and keep plants alive! Pick up 1 bouquet of daisies or tulips
  • Finish reading at least 1 book per week – I’ve already started a new series and am about 120 pages in “The Elementals” and it’s good fun.
  • Write at least 10 chapters of my first book and re-work other books for publishing.

May 2023 Intentions: daily positivity

In just a few days, it will be May and almost the halfway point for the year 2023. Time really moves quickly, even though from day to day, it doesn’t seem like it. But wow. I feel like I haven’t gotten very much accomplished that I had planned on.

With Beltane coming up on the first of May, or April 30 for May’s Eve, I really haven’t given much thought into my monthly intentions. I had a few really productive days last week where I got lots done on my condo, but there is still so much I want to get done before the end of summer. Unfortunately, between the migraines, pain and my stomach – my energy levels often fall flat before I can accomplish what I want to do.

I’ve already shared a post on what Beltane is, but as a reminder – May 1st marks the halfway point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. This means the days will be even longer and weather in most places in the Northern Hemisphere will get warmer.

For many people in my local area, this is the time where people start preparing their gardens for planting and many have already planted things like herbs, tomatoes and other lush green vegetables. This is also typically our rainy season and so we’ve had a few days of rain which has been really welcome and needed to get rid of the snow mold and dust.

Instead of giving a monthly recap, you can scroll down to the bottom of this list and see what I’ve done for this year so far. Hard to believe it’s been almost five months since I rebranded this blog and I’m loving the engagement here – even if it’s not as much as it used to be.


Spiritual Significance of May

May is a popular time for weddings and it is considered the month of mothers and brides. It is also a busy month as high school students prepare for graduation ceremonies and plans to enter “adulthood”. For other people, May is the time when people start thinking about summer vacations, or gardening, or home improvement projects with the warmer weather and longer days.

In a spiritual sense, May is the time to work on positive energy and prosperity. Bringing joy into your life and harmonizing relationships with those you are close to. You might notice that you have more energy this time of year, and want to get working on projects that have been building up over winter. Or you may experience “spring fever” and want to get out and reconnect with loved ones or your social groups.

It’s a time to get “Involved” in life instead of watching it from the sidelines. To get outdoors and really just enjoy what life and nature has to offer you.

With Beltane right around the corner, this is also the time to focus on family and fertility if you are trying to conceive. Or even if you are single and want to have fun – go play and be frisky. But please be careful 🙂


Color Associations

When it comes to color associations and the month of May, think of it like this. Red is for passion and the power of the sun. Green is for creativity, growth and fertility. Yellow is for wisdom and happiness. And pink represents divine feminine and love. These are all things you could focus on for the month even just starting the day off with some meditations or intention settings as you sip your coffee or tea.

Note: I am a solo practitioner that doesn’t worship deities, so this is just a guideline and things I do for myself.


My Monthly Intentions for May

Last week, I got started on my decluttering project and got most of the recycling picked up. I have a few more things I’d like to get done for this month, as time and energy allows for it. I’ve given up on exercise for the time being, but am focusing on getting outside 2 or 3 times per day and going for walks when I can.

  • Cook at least 1x meal per week and use all food in the fridge
  • Finish organizing the laundry room and office/music room
  • Get back into daily intentions with my morning coffee & tarot cards, think of things I am grateful for and would like to improve on (for positivity)
  • Go for walks at least 2 or 3x times per week
  • Read for at least 1x hour daily
  • Reach out to friends by text at least 1x each week
  • Sit outside daily for 1 to 2 hours, or 3x times per day
  • Work on arts and craft projects at least 1x a week
  • Work on 1x song per month for Spotify
  • Write daily even if just a journal entry and come up with new book ideas

This list is pretty hefty, so if I do at least 3 or 4 of these items, I’ll be happy with that. It’s something to keep me motivated and going from day to day.
