Julius Caesar many years ago changed the calendar and made January the first month of the year. March used to the first month of the year, as defined by the ancient Babylonians.
Traditionally we celebrate the 1st of January as New Years Day and as we know it is the first day of a whole new year. Generally throughout January everyone is more upbeat and positive for the year ahead and they are optimistic about the changes they wish to make for themselves for the new year.
January has two astrological signs and it starts with Capricorn and crosses over to Aquarius on the 19th/20th of the month.
The personality traits of both signs differ immensely from the ambitious level headed Capricorn to the independent, spontaneous Aquarian.
The birthstone for January is Garnet. A beautiful deep red coloured stone
