Therefore, even though months are not normally used with the article el/un, any adjectives that relate to months must agree in gender with them, always in the masculine form.

Julio es calurosa.
Note also that in Spanish, months, just like days of the week, are not capitalised unless they are at the beginning of a sentence.
