Welcome to September!
This month of 30 days starts with summer and ends with fall. Along the way, many children will return to the start of a new school year. September also marks college football in full swing.
September is the most popular month to be born in, with September 9th being the most popular date to be born on. (Who knew the holidays were quite so festive?! 😉)
Keep reading to learn more about the 9th month of the year or just click on the link below to jump to that particular section:
The birthstone of September is sapphire which boasts a deep blue color. Rather than the light blue we usually associate with the sky, this autumnal birthstone is closer in color to the night sky.
This vibrant gemstone may also occur in other colors, except for red. Instead, we call red sapphires by another name--rubies!
It is said that blue sapphires, one of the most rare gemstones, represent fidelity and sincerity. In the Middle Ages, nobility adorned their garments with sapphires to help ward off evil.
The birth flowers of September are asters and morning glory.
Asters are a common wildflower. Similar in appearance to daisies, asters differ in that their center appears to be arranged in a star shape. It will come as no surprise then that the word “aster” is derived from Greek and means “star.”
Asters traditionally represent patience, daintiness and love. They may be found in a variety of colors, including blue, purple and pink.
Morning glories are another September birth flower. Most often found in blue and purple, they bloom in the morning and die by evening. They grow in vines and may also be called “creepers” as you may have seen their trailing vines adorning a trellis or fence.
The short-lived blooms are said to represent affection, as sometimes that fades just as quickly. The plant may also represent the sustained quality of love, as new flowers appear each day.
The two zodiac signs of September are Virgo and Libra. People with birthdays of August 23 to September 22 are Virgos, while those born between September 23 to October 22 are Libras.
Virgo is an Earth element that has the zodiac color gray and beige. It is represented by the goddess, which reflects the urge of Virgos to use their existence for the greater good and to bring justice to people. People with this zodiac sign tend to notice the smallest details.
Virgos are said to possess the following personality traits:
Libras tend to seek peace and the company of others. Other personality traits include:
Technically, the first 3 weeks of September are still summer. This year, Fall starts on September 22. Depending on where you call home, September may find you still in shorts or reaching for your warm jacket.
