October, wetter cooler days and nights, yet a time we get to once again behold the beautiful fall of multi-coloured autumn leaves on the ground.
October tenth month of the year, comes from an old Latin word Octo which literally translates eight, was the eight month in the old Calendar of Romulus c..750 B C. It was also called Winterfylleth by the Saxons, meaning fullness of winter, as it sets us up in preparation for the colder, darker months ahead.
Colours associated with October are opal and tourmaline.
Metaphysically October is a time for spirit soul body balance, to set a higher, more conscious intention, on how we wish to show up and express on the planet, and within the sphere of our day to day experiences.
