June is the sixth month of the Gregorian calendar and is comprised of 30 days. Its name, "June," is believed to have been derived from Juno, the Roman goddess who was revered as the queen of the gods and associated with marriage, childbirth, and fertility.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20) and Cancer (June 21 - July 22) are the zodiac signs linked to June. Gemini, represented by the twins, signifies duality and adaptability, while Cancer, symbolized by the crab, represents protection and emotional depth.
The summer solstice, occurring on June 21, marks the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This day witnesses the sun reaching its highest point in the sky, resulting in an extended period of daylight.
June has witnessed significant historical events. The Magna Carta was signed in June 1215, World War I began in June 1914, and the first iPhone was launched in June 2007.
