Welcome to the yearly home stretch and season of deep reflection, stocktaking and thanksgiving.
October is commonly associated with the season of spring in parts of the Southern Hemisphere, and autumn in parts of the Northern Hemisphere, where it is the seasonal equivalent to April in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa.
October’s birthstones are the tourmaline and opal.
Its birth flower is the calendula.
The zodiac signs for this month are Libra (until October 22) and Scorpio (from October 23 onwards).
The French word octobre is shortened to 8bre.
“The stillness of October gold
Went out like beauty from a face.”E. A. Robinson
