The month of August is named after the first emperor of Rome. Augustus Caesar (63 BC to 14 AD). Augustus means noble or venerated. Augustus Caesar brought much culture to Rome. He built libraries and schools, patronized the arts and enacted just laws. That period called the Augustus age of literature. In August, under the number eight, we reap what we have sown. Our seeds have reached full maturity and we can see the tangible results of our efforts. But eight brings responsibility we know we have more work to do. Universal meaning eight is the number of material success and worldly involvement. This is the number, struggle, tenacity, and materialism. Eight's are either great successes or great failures, they have no shades of gray and their failures can be just as spectacular as their successes. They are ardent, zealous, and have the ability to see matters in broad terms. These qualities give them the ambition and drive to aim for material goals, which they often achieve. They are wise, adaptable, tenacious, and exceptionally tough characters.



September comes from the Latin, Septem, for seven. When the Gregorian calendar was adopted in 1582, it was decided that these names would be kept even though they were misnumbered. Now, on Labor Day, we celebrate all the work we have done. We honor the effort to produce. "September is a good time to record the year's successes and failures." It is a month of endings, the transitional period. The harvest is in, vacations are over, fall is here and winter is close ahead. Number nine is transitional, a letting go period when we still try to enjoy the fruits of our past labors, knowing that they're demise is eminent, and knowing that we must eventually let go! Nine is the greatest of all primary numbers because it contains the qualities of all the others. It reduplicates the creative power of three and stands for completeness. The private life of nines is often punctuated with quarrels and strife of interference whether from relatives, in-laws, or friends. Some crave affection and will do almost anything to get it, even make fools of themselves.



October is from the Latin Octo, meaning eight. It was originally the eighth month in the Roman calendar. It is presently the tenth month in the Gregorian calendar. In the tenth month a full cycle is completed. (10=1+0=1). October is the month depicting the increasing cyclicity of life. October brings the first real frost. October is the month of awareness; we take note of the transitional process. In cosmic terms will our present attitudes and actions create for our next lifetime, negative circumstances to overcome a trick or positive tools with which to work a treat? Tens have the talent for influencing and bringing people together and you are a power person who has a special spiritual mission in the world. You are a clear thinker. Leadership positions are opened to you because of your obvious control and mastery. Tens are lucky and successful



November is the eleventh month, the only month with a Master Number. As a Master Number 11, November has to be a very important month in any calendar year. Eleven rules sudden and sometimes upsetting decisions and conditions that bring about much needed balance. It is an exciting period filled with surprises. Expect the unexpected is the slogan here. The effects of the Master Number however, give you an opportunity to achieve something more unique, on a higher level of consciousness.

December comes from the Latin decem, and with the twelve we complete a mystical circle. A combination of the seven original planets and the five senses, seven holes in the head and five in the body, seven white keys on a musical scale, five black keys. Twelve reflects in Jesus. Twelve disciples, twelve sons of Jacob, and the twelve tribes of Israel from which all nations sprang, the twelve months of the year and the twelve "planets". Seven is a physical circle. Nine is a psychological circle. Twelve is a spiritual circle. Twelve is a moment of suspension, a pause, when the winter solstice sees the death of the sun, at its farthest point below the equator, plunging us into the depths of winter. The Christ child is most specifically one religious symbol, but that higher self resides in us all. The reverence we feel is for the miracle of life and the promise that even in our darkest moments, the winters of our discontent, the Christ child lies cradled within us, waiting to be born.
