I've learned that August means a lot of different things to different people. From new beginnings to fun filled endings. It is all wrapped up into this one lovely month. August's birthstone is the peridot and is known to host healing properties to protect against nightmares and bring the wearer power, influence, and a wonderful year. Its birth flower is the poppy, meaning strength of character, love, marriage and family. Until August 22nd the zodiac sign is Leo--and if you've loved a Leo in friendship or perhaps intimately, well, you know their beauty very well.
However it is you perceive August to be, I hope it is a gracious one for you.
