We are long past the "Dog Days" of summer, an expression for the hottest days in the middle of summer, which has astral roots:
""Dog Days" (Latin: diēs caniculārēs) are the hottest, most sultry days of summer. In the Northern Hemisphere, the dog days of summer are most commonly experienced in the months of July and August, which typically observe the warmest summer temperatures. In the Southern Hemisphere, they typically occur in January and February, in the midst of the austral summer. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, in proximity to the sun was responsible for the hot weather." (Wikipedia)This past week and weekend, the "last" of the summer saw furious summer activity, as children and adults tried to pack as much of their summer to do and to see list into the remains of summer holidays.
