YOUR BIRTH MONTH: A Guide to Character Analysis

by: Tracy Porter

Copyright 1997

The Gregorian Calendar, used by the majority of the western world since the late 16th century, is an amended version of the Julian Calendar incorporated by Julius Caesar in 46 BC. It is considered a solar calendar because it holds the length of the solar year as closely as possible and establishes a set length for each month. On an esoteric level, a solar calendar is masculine in nature because it is based on the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, as opposed to feminine lunar calendars which are based on the Moon’s orbit around the Earth. Because it is considered masculine, those who use it tend to exercise more logic and rely more on scientific evidence instead of emotions or ‘gut feelings’.
