It was named after the Norman Dictator Julius Ceaser 100BC-44BC to name the month he was born. He was the first to blueprint the Gregorian Calendar we use today. People born in July are said to mainly optimistic in their outlook, extremely positively focused, looking on the brighter side of things.
July the seventh month of the year is the beginning month of the 2nd half of the year. Known also as the month of the Dragonfly perhaps because, during molting, it shakes off the old and takes on the new, and after every molt, it enters a new phase of life symbolizing growth. In this way, July has been linked to the sacred text of 1Peter2:2 that encourages growth among believers – shaking off the old ways and aspire to become higher and better versions of ourselves. For the Native American tribes, dragonflies spiritually represent swiftness and activity.
