July is the seventh month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars. It was named in honor of Julius Caesar. When Julius Caesar died, Quintilis, which was his birth month, was renamed with July. Quintilis means “fifth month” in Latin, which represents where this month originally fell in the Roman calendar.
July’s Birth Stone is the ruby, which symbolizes contentment.
Birth flowers are the Larkspur or the Water Lily.
The zodiac signs for the month are Cancer (June 20 – July 21) and Leo (July 22 – August 22).
