Interestingly, more people are born in September than any other month. Two zodiac signs are associated with this month: Virgo and Libra. People born from Sept. 1– 22 are considered Virgos and are known in the horoscope world for their innate compassion and understanding. Those born during the last week of the month are Libras and are regarded as harmony-driven and organized. While Virgos and Libras have differing personalities, they both celebrate their birthday with the same gemstone: the sapphire.
THE NINTH OR THE SEVENTH MONTH?
Here in the U.S., we regard September as the ninth month in the year, and, according to the Georgian calendar, we are correct. However, during the time when the Roman calendar was used, September was known as the seventh month, since the new year officially started in March. In fact, the name September stems from the old Roman word “Septem,” which translates to “seven.” Additionally, the month of September had 29 days at one point and 31 days at another, but, since the time of the emperor Augustus, it has stayed at 30 days.
GOD OF FIRE
The Romans believed the month of September was tended to by Vulcan, the god of fire and forge. The primary beliefs of this god associated him with the destructive and fertilizing powers of fire. That’s why the Romans often feared September; they worried it would bring destruction to their harvest. They often expected earthquakes, fires, and even volcanic eruptions to occur this month.
