September inherited its name from the Latin word meaning “Seven”.
Seven is a symbol of spiritual perfection or completion, because after creating for 6 days, God rested on the 7th day. The significance of resting after work is a natural process hidden throughout our world; We must sleep in order to be refreshed, & the ground must rest after a time of planting in order to replenish its nutrients.
Aster, the birth flower of September has several different meanings among which are love and wisdom. How appropriate that the month of September is about completion; working hard and sowing with love, proceeded by the wisdom to sit back, rest, & admire the fruits of your labor.
