Under a Juniper Moon (Note Card)

Regular price $5.00

Along the lines of my Pagan-y greeting cards, I offer these full moon name cards. This one features two of the names for the full moon in June; the strawberry moon ("when June berries are ripe" Dakota Sioux) and the rose moon (Colonial American). The lighter part of the moon is painted in the faint pink and lilac tones of a rose petal and the the darker areas are colored with the rich, ripe skin of a strawberry. It also features the faint outline of Juniper, the June fairy (of my tradition).

The full moon is done in watercolor; the fairy is drawn in chalk pastel.

Perfect for June birthdays, holidays, esbats, or whatever suits your fancy.

A tidbit about Juniper:
Juniper is one of the 13 fairies that I made up once upon a time (ha ha, no pun intended...ish) when I was a composing a (as of yet and probably perpetually) unfinished story about Sleeping Beauty. There's one for every month, plus one extra. They have all sorts of alliances and suchlike and are at war, and elemental, and all have weird names that are vaguely associated with their month names, function, or holidays therein.
Juniper is the fairy of June. She's allied with Marjoram and Augustine against Moira, Bridget, and Avery. She is unique in that unlike her other sisters' alliances, she's the leader of her trio even though she is not the oldest (Marje is, but she's a little apathetic and willing to listen to her younger sister). She's a very snooty fairy and tends to think she knows better than everyone else.

Oh yeah and card details, for people who care about that sort of thing:
Cards are approximately 5 1/2" by 4 1/4", and come with a slightly larger envelope to put them in (these ones are white, although there is a stamp on the one in the photos there will be no stamp on the one you receive; it is just for reference). This one is also blank on the inside, so that you may fill it with the message of your choice! (Such as "Happy Birthday!") And it'll be packaged in a cardboard mailer, so it won't get all bent up.
