The Wicca Book of Days for June 27
The Initium Aestatis – “Beginning of Summer” in Latin – was celebrated in ancient Rome on June 27. Although not much is known about the precise form that this summer festival took it is likely to have featured corn in some way, for Aestas, the Goddess of Summer, was depicted adorned with ears of corn, and the Roman poet Ovid in his Metamorphoses (Book II, line 25) describes “Summer, lightly clad, crowned with a wreath of corn ears: attending Sol, the Sun God. Aestas’s name is the root of the English word aestival, or estival, which means “of summer,” or “in summer.”
Sweet Summer Corn
Relish the flavor of summer by roasting corn on an open fire(or if not practical on your grill). Carefully peel back the husks, without detaching them, so that you can remove the cornsilk. The replaced the husks and soak the ear(s) of corn in water for an hour. Roast for 10 – 15 minutes on a rack over the fire.

Today’s energies celebrate ‘Descendant’s Day.’ You can locate the Feng Shui Family/Friends/Ancestors area in the middle left-hand side of your home or office. This arena relates to your past and present family, including all siblings and blood relatives. An effective cure for strengthening the roots of the family tree while keeping everyone united is to display in this space photos of current family members and past descendants. Since this is a wood element area those photos should always be displayed in wooden frames. Positioning them in groups of three (the number associated with this area) will lend in sending healing energy to relatives and friends, past and present. These photos will also keep the family close, if not in location at least in the heart!
