September, the ninth month of the Gregorian calendar (established in 1582 with Pope Gregory XIII), derives its name from the Latin word "septem," meaning "seven." This nomenclature dates back to the Roman calendar, where September was originally the seventh month. Over time, as the calendar evolved, September shifted to its current position, but its name remained, reflecting its historical origins
It is the month of the autumnal equinox, officially heralding spring in the Southern Hemisphere and fall in the Northern Hemisphere. September, with its rich historical roots, beautiful birthstones, symbolic flowers, and deep-seated folk traditions, is a month that represents transition and reflection.
September 1-22 fall under the earth sign Virgo. September 23-30 are under the air sign of Libra.
The birthstones of September are the sapphire and lapis lazuli. Sapphires, renowned for their deep blue hue, symbolize purity, wisdom, and loyalty. Royalty and clergy cherished the gem as a symbol of nobility and sincerity. Lapis lazuli, with its intense blue color, has been admired since ancient times and was highly valued in many early civilizations. It represents truth and enlightenment.
September's flower is the aster, symbolizing powerful love, wisdom, and courage. The name "aster" comes from the Ancient Greek word meaning "star," reflecting the flower's star-like shape. Asters are associated with the Greek goddess Astraea, who, according to legend, wept over the lack of stars on Earth, and her tears turned into star-shaped flowers
Folk legends and customs in September often revolve around the harvest, as this month marks the beginning of the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. One such tradition is the "Harvest Moon," the full moon closest to the equinox, which historically provided farmers with extended light to finish their harvests. The Harvest Moon is enveloped in folklore, often associated with bringing good fortune and symbolizing the start of a new cycle
Another folk legend pertains to Michaelmas on September 29th. It's a Christian festival honoring the Archangel Michael and traditionally marks the harvest season's end. Michaelmas is associated with new beginnings and is a time to settle debts and start fresh.
