Birthday Shout-Outs! (09/2011)

September 2011

Welcome to the Birthday Club’s ninth post of birthday shout-outs! Once a month will be a forum announcement to celebrate the birthdays of our favorite Eden Staff, reviewers, and contributors! So wish everyone a happy birthday and let the celebration begin!

Thanks to the amazing generosity of the EdenFantasys Staff, every contributor who participates in the birthday club will receive a $25 gift card for their birthday month! These are distributed weekly by the staff and are only given to those who send in their birthdays on time to be included in the monthly posts!

And if you have yet to submit your own birthday, PM or email me now! These are the only accepted forms of birthday submissions because it allows me to store them and not worry about missing one of you. Also, if you don’t get your birthday to me before the shout-out gets posted for your month, you will not be mentioned in the post and are ineligible for the GC that month. But don’t worry! You’ll still be in my records when your birthday comes around again!

To make celebrating with our fellow Eden contributors more interesting and special, every month has its own characteristics and history so I’ll be sharing a little of that each time. It’s not going to be extensive information because that would take up entirely too much space and leave me with nothing to do next year. But it does add a little spice to every month of the year and, hey, you might learn a little something too!

And a new note now that there’s only a few months left of 2011 (*gasp*)! Next year, the format is going to be a little bit different than this year. I just have to keep things interesting and keep it from getting boring! And NOW is your chance to PM me with any of your ideas or inspirations for what to change for next year. Not that it’s a contest or anything… yet…

“Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh so mellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain so yellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a young and a callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow--follow, oh-oh."
~Try to Remember, Lyrics by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt


Autumn begins this month in the Northern Hemisphere, marking the end of summer but not the end of celebration! So everyone wish these 13 contributors a happy birthday!

Happy Birthday, all September babies!!!

Birthstone – Sapphire
Zodiac Sign (August 23rd – September 22nd) – Virgo

Virgo

Under the ruling planet of Mercury, this is an Earth sign of the zodiac, symbolized by the female virgin. You are a blending of the pure and the primal. In essence, you are the paradox of the Madonna and the whore. You are both clean, modest, and refined as well as passionate, deep, and intense. And, not too surprisingly considering the male-centered culture this system was born of, you are the only sign of the zodiac to be represented by a woman.

Some great things about you: You are detail-oriented, meticulous, creative, loyal and reliable, intelligent and witty, and have considering charm and romance when it comes to personal relationships. You are genuine when you are affectionate and take practicality very seriously.

Some not so great things? Well, you can seem cold to new people you meet to the point of coming off as a misanthrope. But for most Virgoeans, it’s just a habit of suppressing their private feelings and protecting their natural kindness that they are much protective over. But be careful your overly critical, silent, judging ways don’t alienate people that may actually want to get to know you. Also, you worry way too much. So relax, Virgo. You don’t have to control or bring order to everything. Let your hair down, kick off your shoes, and blow their minds!

Your main colors are indigo and navy blue. The physical body parts that correspond to your sign (yes, the zodiac has body parts too) are the intestines, abdomen, and spleen. These may be areas of importance to you or areas you experience chronic issues with. Your flowers are jasmine, wintergreen, sage, narcissus, and cornflower. Some famous Virgos include Prince Albert, Ingrid Bergman, Michael Jackson, Elvis Costello, Queen Wilhelmina, Antonin Dvorak, D.H. Lawrence, Agatha Christie, Stephen King, and Louis XIV of France.

If you’re at the tail end of the month and don’t fall under this sign, no frets! We can’t do repeats for every month so your sign will be next month with October. But also keep in mind, for anyone who has even an inkling of interest in astrology, that the closer you are to another sign in birthday, the more characteristics you share with them.

This Month in History:

Labor Day – Celebrated on the first Monday of September in the U.S., Labor Day is celebrated in honor of all hard working men and women. The first one was celebrated in 1882 by the Central Labor Union of New York. It became a federal holiday two years later when, following the deaths of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. marshals during the Pullman Strike, President Cleveland put reconciliation with the labor movement as a top political priority. It also unofficially marks the end of the summer, the beginning of the school year, the beginning of football season, and colloquially the last day it is considered fashionable to wear white for the year.

September 1, 1715 – King Louis XIV of France, the Sun King, died after ruling since the age of 5.

September 1, 1969 – Military officials overthrew the Libyan government, which was followed by the proclamation of the Libyan Arab Republic under Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.

September 2, 31 BCE – Roman legions under Augustus Caesar defeated Mark Anthony’s military force at Actium.

September 2, 1752 – The British stopped using the Julian calendar, making the switch to the Gregorian calendar. This move resulted in a major adjustment as Wednesday, September 2, was followed by Thursday, September 14. The correction resulted in rioting by people who felt cheated and demanded the missing eleven days back.

September 2, 1923 – The first elections were held in the Irish Free State after achieving independence from Britain.

September 3, 1783 – The Treaty of Paris was signed by John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and John Jay. This formally ended the American Revolutionary War between Britain and the United States.

September 5, 1997 – Mother Teresa died in Calcutta at the age of 87 years, after a life of good work and servitude to the sick and poor in India through her Missionaries of Charity order.

Sorry that I missed the cut-off. To add to your list, and as proof of the cusp effect, I was born on the 27th os September, and am a Libra.(the Scales) I have almost all of the attributes of the Libra, and none of the Virgo.
