Using numerology I matched the tarot's major arcane cards with my name. The cards above reflect my name: June. What would you think about me from those pictures?
When I was young I didn’t like my name and told my mother so. She suggested I change it. I tried out Jackie (Jackie Kennedy was the first lady then) but ended up keeping my own. Having the same name as a month encourages a lot of teasing. I’ve heard all the jokes about that plus being serenaded the June songs – “June is bursting’ out all over!”
There was a big hoopla from my birth about my name. My father didn’t like it either. He would say that it was a pagan, a heathen name and not a saint’s. Later in life I told him that I’d be the first Saint June. Of course I didn’t say that I’d not be a Catholic one, but a Wiccan/pagan saint. I’m working on it. What’s the story behind your naming?
Names have a message - it it an announcement of you. Besides being the sixth month of the year, my name is derived from the Roman goddess Juno, the goddess of marriage – the Great Juno Moneta guarded over the finances of the empire and had a temple on the Arx, which was the mint. I’d like to be Mama Bank. June also means youth – again, me… forever young. People respond to my name by letting me know that they once knew a June or had an old aunt named June. Like that. What does your name mean?
How do you feel about your name? Say your name aloud a few times, in different tones and inflections. Sit quietly and chant it softly. Feel the vibration within your body. Now say it out.
Does it ring true for how you think or see yourself? Your name has a power and the sound of it influences the ears of those who hear it. They “see” you through hearing your name.
Many people have changed their names by choosing a new one or shortening the original name to match their self –image. This also influences the reactions from others toward them.
What does your name say about you? In numerology my name is a number five. J 1 + U 3 + N 5 + E 5 = 14 = 5.
The number five denotes change, flexibility, movement, and can be scattered and chaotic at times. Also is associated with adventure, travel, education and flux. I must say that it does describe my personality. My maiden name also totals a number five.
I wonder what your name would look like?
