Not perfectly punctual, but almost…September! It’s the first month of Autumn, which to me is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. The name comes from the Roman word “septum” meaning seven - it was the seventh month in the Roman calendar. The Romans believed the month was looked after by Vulcan, god of fire, and was therefore associated flames and volcanic eruptions. The subtle hints of yellow and orange around September’s eye are meant to allude to this.

The ancient Greeks honored Demeter, goddess of harvest, during the month. The Anglo-Saxons also associated the month with harvest, and called it Barley month. It was the time of year when they harvested barley to be made into their favorite drink, barley brew.

September has three birth flowers. Represented here is the aster. It’s a passionate autumn flower which symbolizes love, daintiness, and patience. Sapphire is the birthstone, and represents intuition and peacefulness. September is also national potato/chicken/biscuit month (among others - mmmmm :)).

September babies! You are meant to be careful, calm, cautious, sympathetic, trustworthy, critical, motivated, clever, have a love for travel, and have a good memory. Good stuff!
