Almanac – July
July’s name comes from the Latin
for Julius Caesar. It was called
Julius mensis, or “month of Julius.”
Originally called Quintilis mensis
for “fifth month,” Julius Caesar
named the month after himself
when he reformed the calendar in
46 BC.
July’s Birthstone is the Ruby,
which is a bright red gemstone.
July’s Flower is the Lackspur,
which symbolizes “Passionate
Attachment.”

Aphelion is the point in the orbit when
the earth is the farthest from the sun.
The earth will be at Aphelion on July
6th. It is still the hottest weather here in
the north because the tilt of the earth
has us facing the sun directly and the
sun’s rays fall nearly straight on us.
July’s Full Moon, on the 1st, is the
Buck Moon. Male deer, which shed
their antlers every year, begin to
regrow them in July, hence the
Native American name for July’s
full moon.
Other names include Thunder
moon, for the month’s many
summer storms, and Hay moon,
after the July hay harvest.
Holidays to Remember: July
July is . . . . Baked Beans Month, Ice
Cream Month, Tennis Month, Read
an Almanac Month, and Anti-
Boredom Month.
