November About this sound (pronunciation) is the 11th month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of four Gregorian months with the length of 30 days. November retained its name (from the Latin novem meaning "nine") when January and February were added to the Roman calendar.

November starts on the same day of the week as February in common years, and March every year.

November is associated with the month of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere and Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore November in the Southern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent of May in the Northern Hemisphere and vice versa.

From LoveToKnow 1911

NOVEMBER (Lat. novem, nine), the ninth month of the old Roman year, which began with March. By the Julian arrangement, according to which the year began with the 1st of January, November became the eleventh month and had thirty days assigned to it. The r 1 th of November was held to mark the beginning of winter; the sacred banquet called epulum Jovis took place on the 13th. It is said that the senate desired to rename the month in honour of Tiberius - his birthday occurring on the 16th, but the emperor declined, saying, "What will you do, Conscript Fathers, if you have thirteen Caesars ?" The Anglo-Saxon names for November were Windmonath, " windmonth" and Blodmonath " bloodmonth." In the calendar of the first French republic November reappeared partly as Brumaire and partly as Frimaire. The principal November festivals in the calendar of the Roman Church are: All Saints' Day on the 1st, All Souls' on the 2nd, St Martin's on the 11th, the Presentation of the Virgin on the 21st, St Cecilia's on the 22nd, St Catherine's on the 25th and St Andrew's on the 30th. St Hubert commemorated on the 3rd. In the English calendar All Saints' and St Andrew's are the only feasts retained.

November is the eleventh month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of four Gregorian months with the length of 30 days.

November begins in western tropical astrology with the sun in the sign of Scorpio and ends in the sign of Sagittarius. Astronomically speaking, the sun actually begins in the constellation of Libra, passes through Scorpius from approximately the 24th through the 29th and ends in the constellation of Ophiuchus, which is the only zodiacal constellation that is not associated with an astrological sign.

In Latin, novem means "nine". November was also the ninth month in the Roman calendar until a monthless winter period was divided between January and February. The birthstone for November is either topaz or citrine.
