HISTORY OF AUGUST
It is called Augustus menilis in Latin, meaning “the month of Augustus.” In Latin, augere means “to increase, to grow, to exalt.” The month of August is named after Caesar Augustus, the first emperor of Rome. Augustus’ birth name was originally Gaius Octavius Thurinus; however, he received this nickname because of the word’s meaning of “exaltation.” Just as Julius Caesar’s month July (July) has 31 days, August also has 31 days because he wanted his own month to have 31 days. Since Augustus coincided with the time of Cleopatra’s death, he wanted this month to be placed in its place on the calendar. Before this month, change was made; since August was the 6th month in the Roman calendar, which started with March, it was called Sextilis menelis (6th month) in Latin.
MONTH OF AUGUST
August is the eighth month of the year. It is preceded by July and succeeded by September. It was named August after Augustus Caesar, making it the first month of the first year of the first century of the modern era. The month had 30 days for centuries, but it had 29 days from 1609 to 1752. It then began having 31 days until 1800, when it reverted to 30 days until standardization in 1887. August is the eighth month of the modern calendar, with 31 days.
August is a month of endings and beginnings. While it may be said that all things cycle and recycle, one can draw a line in the sand and mark off the summer and winter seasons this time of the year.
There are three birthstones for August, each representing the characteristics that people born in August are said to possess. For example, Peridot represents vitality, happiness, and prosperity. Because peridot gemstones are known for being found in extraterrestrial places like meteorites, it is said they make their owners feel as if they have extraterrestrial beauty.
