JUNE 27 Birthday Horoscope reports that you are the competent communicator who comes up with some wonderful ideas. You have the gift of gab, and others appreciate your sense of humor. You always end up being in the limelight.

You tend to make compromises for others, and occasionally, you suffer because of it. When in love, you are extremely creative and expressive. You possess qualities that are empathetic and understanding. You can see a person’s viewpoint and can be compassionate. As the June 27th birthday personality traits show, you are very helpful and protective.

Let’s talk about some of the negative qualities possessed by the Cancer zodiac birthday person born on June 27. The Cancerian, according to your June 27 horoscope, can be sensitive sometimes and hold on to things that they should not.

You seem to wear your heart on your sleeve, and therefore, your feelings get hurt without much effort. On the other hand, crabs born on this day can be selfish, overbearing and manipulative.

According to the June 27 astrology analysis for love, you may find that the Cancer lover can be extremely giving and above all, emotional. As a tradition, you like entertaining and getting together with friends and family is important to you as bonds tighten.

However, when it comes to love and romance, you have a personality that is idealistic, charming and devoted. As a dreamer, you are likely to wish for a soul mate who offers you security and support. Your definition of love is idealistic.

The long-term relationship for the Cancer zodiac sign could be an incredible one as your physical drive is often paired with a romantic mindset. Ordinarily, you are not the one to instigate a sexual prologue but once you get the go ahead, you do what you do, and you do it well.

The June 27th zodiac characteristics predict anyone who is thinking about pairing up with a Cancer must know that you will take the lead or be the person in charge. This quality of being dominant is present in business and your personal life.

You are likely to expect to have your partner’s loyalty and dedication as you work toward prosperity and unity. With this ability, it’s not likely that you will give up or be a disappointment.

When it’s time to select the best career, look for a profession that uses your abilities as its financial rewards can highly motivate you. You are a hard-working Cancer birthday person who usually is efficient and enjoys taking on many tasks.

As the boss, you expect to reward those for their devotion and hard work. You take your job seriously and run a tight ship, but you’re always fair. If today June 27 is your birthday, then you realize that discipline is the key to having a healthy bank account.

Someone who was born on this day has an almost photogenic memory. You are not inclined to act carelessly with the checkbook. Your main goal is to secure a financial portfolio that will allow you to live a comfortable lifestyle. However, your occasional charitable ways can cause problems.

According to the June 27 birthday meaning, you live a lifestyle that is busy, and it can have an impact on your health. It’s important that you exercise on a regular basis to eliminate stress and anxiety.

If you were born on this day, you are likely to suffer from illnesses related to the stomach or nervous system. You should be aware that keeping a toned and physically fit body, can increase your energy.

The June 27 horoscope profile shows that you have a way with people and occasionally can talk your way out of situations that prove difficult by getting people to laugh.

On the other hand, you can be overly sensitive and should not take everything to heart. As a dreamer, you often think of a love affair that is loving and supportive. Those born on this day are Cancer personalities who prefer to be in charge.

You can be domineering and have a passion for romance. Physically, you could do better as you tend to carry stress in your stomach area. Regular exercise will alleviate some stress and improve blood circulation.

June 27, 2022 Current Moon Phase Digest

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious, you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else was born.

From MoonGiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the June 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Sound: “i”, “e”, “j” as in the “y” in “year”
Stands for: Ice
Casting meaning: Ice is unchanging and restricting and like ice this rune embodies the resistant power that tries to prevent change.

Witches Rune

From wizardforest.com – Witches Runes


Since ancient times it has been considered that crossroads are very powerful places. They are often used for magic procedures. The crossroads also symbolize the crossed spears. Nevertheless, in spite of its mystery the fallen rune Crossroad doesn’t mean something bad. It only hints that you are on the way to choose as you are standing on the crossroads. And only you can decide what way to choose. You shall take much pain to analyze everything, make a decision and listen to your mind and intuition.

Key words: road choice, crossroad, gates, free will, your decision

Moon phase: new Moon

Element: Air

Chakra No.3: solar plexus


From LearnReligions.com – Celtic Ogham


Oi, sometimes representing the Th sound, is Oir, the Spindle tree, which was used to make bobbins and pegs, as well as (obviously) spindles. This dainty little tree is misleading–while it looks delicate, it’s also very strong. The durability and strength of the wood made it useful for oxen-goads, which were used in ploughing. The white flowers and bright red autumn fruits, connect the Spindle tree to the hearth and home, as well as the bonds of kinfolk and clan.

Oir Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, focus on family honor. Remember that in addition to blood family members, we have people that we choose to invite into our hearts, our spiritual family members. Fulfill obligations you may have to people you love, whether you have been planning for or not. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, but ultimately, do what’s right for those who enjoy the hospitality of your hearth.

Magical Aspects: Work on developing a connection not only to the people in your clan, but in the greater spiritual community. Remember that differing tribes still have to work together for a common purpose, and that means someone has to assume the role of mediator when conflicts arise. If you’re active in the Pagan community, or in a specific group, this may fall to you.

CLick here to learn more about the numerology meaning of the number 7 from numerology.com


Seven, among numbers of the numerological core, is about wisdom, sophistication, high level of education and a philosophical attitude to life. The influence of this number defines you as a person who can achieve much, if not everything. Nature has granted you with sharp analytical mind, originality of thought and skillful fingers. There is hardly a field of activity you would be totally unsuitable for. That is why your personal image is not too appealing. The feeling of superiority gives rise to intolerance and cynical attitude to others’ weaknesses. And people don’t like those who look down on them.

Positive qualities

The main strength of the Seven is the ability to think. Think for real. That is, they can set a question and then use logic, erudition and insight to find the answer.

In fact, quite a few are capable of doing such, which gives you a distinct advantage in most situations. It is quite natural that people regard you as a wise advisor.

Another positive quality is your inner tranquility. You can fire up and start yelling because of any trifle, but it is virtually impossible to bring you out of balance and make you lose your head.

Negative qualities

Clearly negative features of the Seven are their inherent cynicism, misanthropy, groundless suspicion and certain wildness in their behavior.

You do not care about what they think or say, so you do not give yourself trouble to show good manners, or even common courtesy. If you want to, you can “teach a lesson in etiquette” in such an insulting form that the other person will feel offended.

Moreover, you seize every moment to demonstrate your independence and unwillingness to be part of the crowd. So you will never become a darling of all hearts.

Spell for Today – Herbal Witches Cleansing Bottle


To make an herbal cleansing bottle, pour a layer of sand in a large clear bottle.

Add layers of dried herbs, one at a time: first rosemary; then lemon peel, sage, cedar, black peppercorns, lavender, dill, bay leaf, and rowan.

When the bottle is full, focus cleansing protective energy into the herbs and sand, and see a golden light radiating from the bottle. Visualize the herbs driving away negative influences.

Cork and seal the bottle with white wax (or another color of your choice).

Using a permanent marker, draw the Algiz rune on one side of the bottle, and on the other side draw a pentagram.

Set the bottle near your front or back door, and every six months, uncap, pour the herbs out into the woods or your compost heap, and thoroughly wash and dry the bottle before filling it with a new round of herbs.

2022 June 27

The Gum Nebula over Snowy Mountains

Image Credit & Copyright: Wang Jin

Explanation: The Gum Nebula is so large and close it is actually hard to see. This interstellar expanse of glowing hydrogen gas frequently evades notice because it spans 35 degrees — over 70 full Moons — while much of it is quite dim. This featured spectacular 90-degree wide mosaic, however, was designed to be both wide and deep enough to bring up the Gum — visible in red on the right. The image was acquired late last year with both the foreground — including Haba Snow Mountain — and the background — including the Milky Way’s central band — captured by the same camera and from the same location in Shangri-LaYunnanChina. The Gum Nebula is so close that we are only about 450 light-years from the front edge, while about 1,500 light-years from the back edge. Named for a cosmic cloud hunter, Australian astronomer Colin Stanley Gum (1924-1960), the origin of this complex nebula is still being debated. A leading theory for the origin of the Gum Nebula is that it is the remnant of a million year-old supernova explosion, while a competing theory holds that the Gum is a molecular cloud shaped over eons by multiple supernovas and the outflowing winds of several massive stars.
