The Magic of August

August Love Compatibility

Originally named Sextilis back then it was the sixth month of the year in Rome, it became the eighth month after January and February were added, and the name was chosen in honor of the emperor Augustus. He wanted that month to bear his name because he felt he had made some great accomplishments then including the conquest of Egypt.

August is thirty-one days long, and falls in the season of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. For many there, the summer growing season is at it’s peak and harvest has begun. The days are hot, and August is often spent trying to keep cool, because some of the hottest temperatures of the year can occur then. It is Happiness Happens month and National Peach Month, and National Goat Cheese Month. It’s also National Sandwich month, so maybe have a goat cheese peach sandwich if you are adventurous!

It's also the month of an ancient Gaelic harvest celebration called Lughnassadh. Held on August first, and situated between the Summer Solstice and Autumnal Equinox, it is included with Imbolc, Betaine, and Samhain as a seasonal celebration and coincides with Lammas, celebrated by Christians. Lammas celebrates a miraculous release of the apostle Peter from prison, and some bake bread with the first harvested wheat of the season to celebrate. The ancient Gaels attached different meanings to the season.

Lughnassadh saw a large sports event, festive market, and large gathering held in honor of the god Lugh’s foster-mother, Tailltiu. Legend has it that she died planting crops for the people when they had just moved into Ireland and the ancient celebration in honor of her great love and sacrifice for the people may have started back as early as 632 BCE. Athletic competitions like running, archery, spear throwing, and high jump competitions were held, and crafts persons had competitions of their own, to see who was considered to be the best weavers, armorers, metalworkers, and jewelers at the competitions. Most surprisingly, however, special trial marriages were arranged at Lughnassadh called “Taillten Marriages.”

The couples often met for the first time there, and had a one year trial marriage called a handfasting. At the following Lughnassadh, they could make their marriage permanent, or part ways if they preferred. These marriages are documented as being done until the thirteenth century. Besides the marriages and crafts and athletic competitions, other important events were competitions for singing and storytelling, as well as dance. Legally binding agreements could be renewed and new ones could be created at Lughnassadh time as well.

August Superstitions

August Love Compatibility

Besides Lammas and Lughnassadh to celebrate the harvest and bring people together for fellowship, August is considered auspicious for many different reasons. Some people believe it is bad luck to get married in August because it means you will end up alone at some point. Oh no! The “August Curse” as it has been called, has been considered reality to some in Russia starting in 1991 where some people believed bad things were more likely to happen during the month of August. Events included train, plane, and submarine accidents that killed people, financial crashes, terrorist attacks, floods, wildfires, and explosions.

However, August isn’t all bad because it’s when harvest of wheat occurs. It is considered by some people to be proper to release some flour from the harvest to the wind as a gift of thanks to the powers that be. The Lammas bread is sometimes blessed in the church and broken into four pieces, and when placed in the four corners of the barn, is believed to protect the harvest. The grains harvested before Lughnassadh or Lammas are considered bad luck to use, and it is considered most important to express thanks for all you have accomplished thus far in the year, whether you farm or not, because it is believed by many that the spirits and deities help human beings prosper.

Special August Babies

August Love Compatibility

If you were born in August, you are very special. You are either a Leo or a Virgo, and these are two energetic signs who work hard and love just as hard. August born babies are usually born very healthy and might be taller than other babies because their mothers got the benefit of all the vitamin D from the sunny Summertime weather while they were pregnant. Babies born in Summer are more likely to report that they feel lucky, and that positive outlook is linked to better mental health and better overall health in general. Some people worry their August born baby will have an academic disadvantage because of when the school year starts. It means they are among the youngest in their class, but they have their Leo determination or Virgo work ethic to get them through it, so they can be just fine!

August Flowers of the Month

August Love Compatibility

Your flower of the month is one you can use in bags, amulets, or even to keep pressed into a book for luck. They can be planted at your home or workplace so you can absorb their energy and keeping them as cut fresh or dried flowers can ensure their power is available to you. Using images of them or even painting or drawing your birth month flowers yourself can connect you to their energy, and it is especially lucky if your birth month flower is gifted to you by somebody you love! August flowers of the month are the cheerful poppies, and the elegant gladiolus.


Various different types of poppies grow in the Mediterranean, Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The California poppy is California’s state wildflower, and the opium poppy has been used to make pharmaceuticals and the seeds are used in salad dressings and tasty desserts. In Ancient Egypt, the seeds were eaten as pain killers, and the poppy is a symbol of remembering soldiers who have died serving in war. This is because it is said that some poppies grew where some soldiers had died and were the only ones that grew again on that spot!

In Roman and Greek myth, the red poppy was offered to the dead and when placed on gravestones, represent eternal sleep, but the magical and mythic meaning of poppies isn’t limited to veneration of the dead. Poppies also represent happiness, peace, and hope. White poppies most especially symbolize peace, and you can give white poppies to somebody who needs peace or who you want to make peace with. In some parts of the world, poppies symbolize success and luxury and can be used to draw money, wealth, or help you achieve your goals. The poppy is also associated with dreams and the mystical, so you can place a vase of them by your bed, asking for prophetic dreams!


Members of the iris family, there are about three hundred kinds of these gorgeous flowers, and they occur naturally in parts of Africa, and Mediterranean parts of Europe. The word gladiolus comes from the Latin “gladius”, which means sword, and these are called “sword lilies” referencing their long stems. They represent faithfulness and are traditionally given for fortieth wedding celebrations as a result. They are also gifted to express appreciation.

They were associated with gladiators due to their shape and it was said that wore gladiolus flowers around their necks as charms to prevent death and assure victory. Gladiolus are associated with strength and can be carried or worn to grant personal power and help bring success. Maybe you are not a soldier or warrior, but want to win a court case. Gladiolus petals tucked into your bag or wallet, or a piece of jewelry made in their likeness can be carried to help with this. They also symbolize infatuation and can be gifted to somebody who you are interested in to express your attraction to them.

August Birthstones

Besides the beautiful poppy and gladiolus birth month flowers, there are some precious stones you can draw power from if you are born in August. Some separate birth stones by sign, insisting a Leo and a Virgo will have different birth stones. However, you don’t need to. You don’t even need to separate your birthstones by day. So, the birthstone for August 22 will be the same as the birthstone for August 31. They are peridots, sardonyxes, and spinels.

This stone was considered a stone of healing in the Middle Ages, and it was believed it could cure depression and open a closed heart. Most people prefer to get counseling for depression over wearing a stone, but the natural energy of the peridot can help during that regimen of treatment. They are believed to be good for warding off nightmares, so wearing a peridot ring, or placing one under your pillow when you sleep is believed to help. They are also believed to shut out fears in general and can be worn and carried to ease anxiety and grant courage.

Some forms of peridot have been found in space on other planets, and some came to earth on meteorites, believe it or not. Others were formed because of molten rock and pushed to the surface of the earth by earthquakes and volcanic activity. They were believed in ancient times to be hurled to earth from explosions on the Sun, and supposedly provided the Sun’s protection against darkness. The peridot is also believed to encourage other people to react favorably to you when worn and helps prevent gossip against you. Carry the peridot to remove blockages from old patterns you need to change, and to aid in personal transformation.


A combination of onyx and orange carnelian, this stone is referred to as Sardinian Onyx. The stone is a combination of dazzling and hypnotic stripes or circles with colors ranging from lemon yellow and white to terracottas, blacks, browns, and various shades of orange and rust. Used to focus willpower after you feel you have lost hope, the sardonyx can help you regain your strength and will to move forward again. They help with focus and determination and are especially helpful at jobs to keep you working hard. It is believed the stone will help you be good with words and can help you be more persuasive.

The stone has been used for protection for generations and can be used as both protection for your physical wellbeing and as protection against emotional and psychic attacks. It is believed sardonyx enhances your sense of taste, smell, touch, and hearing, and is used to sharpen those senses and keep the wearer alert. Sardonyx is also used to draw wealth, luck, and abundance to you and will draw success in business. This is a stone that is believed to draw friends and lovers to you, all while keeping your perception sharp to ensure you choose new friends and lovers well.


Found in such places as the Baffin Islands of Canada, Vietnam, and Tanzania, spinel comes in a range of colors from blues and greens, to reds, pinks, and purples, and even comes in a clear colorless stone. Red spinels and rubies were considered to be the same stone at one point, and spinels are so popular, there are even synthetic ones being produced!

It is believed by some people that a single spinel will align all of your chakras on its own and that it immediately raises awareness of both your mental and physical bodies. It is said to revitalize and replenish your energy, so it is a great stone for workaholics- like Virgos- to use to recharge their depleted energy. It aides in determination and gives you the strength to be powerful, even under immense stress. It rejuvenates the mind and helps to enhance your personality. Carry or wear the spinel to balance the emotions, unleash creativity, and to also open up your compassion for yourself and others.

Cancers are well thought of by Virgos for a lot of reasons, including the fact that Cancers can be highly cooperative, thinking of all parties involved in a situation instead of forcing a “My way or the highway” approach on other people. Virgos can be very one wayed sometimes, but that’s only because they have gone out of their way looking at every aspect of things and have arrived at what they feel is the best way to do things that benefits everybody.
