Quando in un bosco ne percepisci la bellezza e diventi tutt'uno con il bosco, allora, intuitivamente, sei in armonia e in pace con le Dee e con gli Dei. Essi sono parte della nostra vera natura, la nostra Natura Profonda, e quando siamo separati dalla nostra vera natura, viviamo nella paura. Percepire questa normalità vuol dire dare un senso reale al vivere che è insito in tutte le cose.

Intraprendere la Via Romana al Divino significa iniziare un percorso di risveglio: praticando l'attenzione e la consapevolezza continua ci incamminiamo lungo una strada sapendo che ciò che conta è il cammino per sè più che la destinazione.

When you, entering a forest, perceive the beauty of the forest and you feel to be in a complete harmony with it, then, intuitively, you are in peace with the Deities. They are an essential part of our real nature, our Deep Nature, and when we are separated by our real nature we live in the fear. Perceiving such normality means giving a real sense to our lives.

Undertaking the Roman Via to the Deities implies a path to awakening: with the practice of continuing consciousness and awareness we undertake our walking knowing that taking the path is more important than the destination itself

June - Juno

This month is entirely devoted to the sacralization of the universal feminine polarity manifesting  her force both in microcosm and in macrocosm. We call "female polarity" that centripetal, coagulating, generating, creating force permeating everything in opposition to that polarity we call "male polarity" being a centrifugal, dissolving, disgregating force.
 
Each individual has both polarities: the perfect being, the Androgyne Rebis, can show simoultaneously these two forces.
 
For this reason June is therefore a feminine month by definition during which this energy, pertaining both men and women, is celebrated. In a more profane sense, June is essentially dedicated to women. 

June receives his name from the feminine force named Juno in particular a great Goddess representing the sacralization of the feminine being, the Jupiter's feminine polarity with who she shares the simbology of authority, preminence, majesty, heights.
 
(It is interesting to note the relevant difference between Juno and other feminine forces such as Ceres, Diana or Vesta. I will discuss some more complex aspects related to Juno in a specific post)

Juno represents marriage, fertility, birth and motherhood. Her sacred ministress, the flaminica - the flamen Dialis' wife (Jupiter Minister) every first day of the month, sacrificed to Juno a white heifer to ask protection for women.
Sacred animals for Juno are: goose and crow.
The sacred tree of Juno is the oak.
 
Examples of Juno's Indigitamenta:
  • Juno Fluonia - sacralization of menstruation
  • Juno Domiduca - sacralization of the movement of the young wife to her new house
  • Juno Cinxia - sacralization of the opening of the young wife belt after the marriage
  • Juno Juga e Iunxia - sacralization of wedding
  • Juno Lucina - sacralization of birth
Juno is also the feminine polarization of the Genius. Every man has his own Genius or his spiritual and invisible essence keeping the material part alive. In the same way every woman has her own Juno.
Juno and Genius give to individuals suggestions and advices, force, energy and determine individual attitude. At every birthday men and women celebrate their respective Genius or Juno.
