January (Jan) is The first month of the Gregorian calendar, following the December of the previous year and preceding February. It begins 10 days after the winter solstice and containing thirty-one days. It is the time to saying bye to the last year and welcoming the New Year. Don't forget to plan for your first month of the year 2020 with our January 2020 Calendar Templates!
History of Name
January was named after the Roman god Janus. Janus is also the Roman word for door. The god Janus had two faces which allowed him to look forwards into the coming year and backwards into the past year.
The original Roman calendar only had 10 months. January and February were not included, but were added later.
January's birthstone is the garnet, which represents constancy.
- The garnet is the a semi-precious stone whose energies govern the month of January. The term garnet comes from the Latin granatus which means "seed-like". I dig that, especially in conjunction with the theme of January. January is all about sowing seeds (ideas, goals, new year's resolutions, etc) and nurturing them throughout the year.
- The garnet comes in many colors, but it's most commonly admired in bright sanguine, crimsons and cheerful reds. This too is a correlation. The month of January sparks of a procession of increasing light (at least for the northern hemisphere). With each passing day after the winter solstice (in December) we begin to see the light of the sun linger longer in our views. Don garnets as a reminder of the return of the Light into your spiritual life, as well as a poignant reminder of the brilliant seeds you shall sow and see to fruition this year.
January's Birth Flower
Carnations and snowdrops are the two birth flowers most commonly associated with January.
Carnations: Carnations come in two types: border or garden, and perpetual-flowering, which tend to be taller, have bigger flowers, and are mainly grown under cover by farmers. Their wild ancestor, Dianthus caryophyllus, probably originated in Greece and Italy.
Snowdrops: Its Latin name is Galanthus, from the Greek for "milk flower". In French the snowdrop is known as the perce-neige because it pierces the snow, and the Germans call it Schneeglockchen, little snowbell. And it's not to be confused with its larger and similar-looking relatives Leucojum and Acis, both commonly known as snowflakes.
January's Zodiac Signs
The zodiac signs for the month of January are Capricorn (until January 19) and Aquarius (January 20 onwards).
- Capricorn is the tenth astrological sign in the zodiac out of twelve total zodiac signs, originating from the constellation of Capricornus, the horned goat.
- Aquarius is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius.
