Green Peridot, Sardonyx, and Spinel are those three gemstones, which could add to your bounteous beauty. The light-green Peridot bestows magical powers of power and influence. The reddish, zebra-striped stone with white bands are the Sardonyxes that magnetize friends and bring in heaps of fortune to you.  Resembling Ruby or Sapphire are the Spinels that promise to bring innumerable health benefits. The vibrant flowers of gladiolus and poppies are the birth flowers for those born this month. The gladiolus implies integrity, honor, and respect, while the poppies symbolize remembrance, prosperity, enchantment, and sympathy.

It’s always not about bounce and exuberance for life, but luck often turns the game. August babies are said to be luckier than other birth months. Or is that because they have an outlook to view themselves as lucky more than others?
