AUGUST 39ers UN-Birthday Oasis

Feeling the heat August 39ers?

Whatever cool way you’re celebrating your birthday month, no doubt somewhere, life-of-the-party Leos (07/23 – 08/22) are turning impish Virgos (08/23 – 09/22) on to some cool party tricks during these hot, steamy days.

August was originally known as Sextilis in Latin, and held the sixth month place on the calendar until around 700BC (talk about confusing the masses). But it wasn’t enough for Augustus to establish the Roman Empire – his many triumphs inspired the powers that be to rename and move Sextilis to the eighth month in commemoration of the month’s numerous victories.

So Leos, wielding boisterous words with a Gladiolus stalk like the “sword lily” your birth month flower is, you can be sure to command attention, taking your slice of summer life to the hilt.

Virgos seeking something a little more sedate? Try a trip to Arizona for some Peridot hunting! The desert is famous for its Peridot gem quality.

It’s easy to believe stories of its magical powers and healing properties, as the bright green birthstone mesmerizes with multi-layered cool, green depths.

OK, snap out of it – time to get on with the month – and on with the party, August 39ers!

Celebrate the day and take your mind off the heat. Aw heck, just celebrate the whole month, creating an oasis of diversions – in your mind, if not in deed – that toast your life. You deserve it

Happy UN-Birthday AUGUST 39ers!
