Flowers are a great choice when trying to let someone know that you’re thinking of them, show appreciation, sympathy, and love. But everyone who’s gone down that road knows of the difficulty you face when choosing flowers for someone, as there are so many to choose from. The occasion plays a part to a big extent, but another way you can choose a bloom can be based on a person’s zodiac sign. As we all know, the 12 zodiac signs come hand-in-hand with specific personality traits. The case is the same when it comes to flowers and the energy they are associated with. Some astrologists believe that surrounding yourself with your zodiac flowers can boost your happiness, productivity and reduce stress levels.
So, have a look at your star sign, and its corresponding flower below:
Aries: 21 March – 19 April
If you’re born within the time period between the end of March and beginning to mid-April, then you fall under the zodiac sign Aries. Aries are famous for their engaging personality, kindness, and confidence. This being said, it isn’t a surprise that the representing flower for this star sign is the Honeysuckle. A Hummingbird’s favourite, honeysuckle gets its name based on the sweet nectar that it produces. A great Aries match, the flower represents happiness, joy, and symbolises the sweetness of new love, new chapters, and pleasant memories.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Geranium and Impatiens (Touch-me-not)
Taurus: 20 April – 20 May
Being the strongest earth sign, Taurus is the most suitable zodiac sign for gifting both indoor and outdoor flowers. The bulls highly appreciate and respect fine quality, art and elegance. The powerful poppy is a flower that is often associated with this star sign. According to gardening professionals from Fantastic Services, the poppy is known for thriving where no other plant could. Similarly, Taurus folks will stand their ground and stay true to what they believe in. Poppies also symbolise peace and calmness.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Foxglove, Violets, Lilac, and Daisies
Gemini: 21 May – 20 June
Used for centuries in numerous spiritual practices, Lavender is the official flower that represents the twins’ zodiac sign. When it comes to symbolism, it represents grace, calmness, harmony, energy, and elegance. It perfectly fits Gemini’s social, exuberant nature and versatile personality. Lavender is also often associated with spiritual awareness and connection to higher sensibility.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Daffodil
Cancer: 21 June – 22 July
Flower: White Rose
The white colour of the flower is what makes it so special and gets to represent the unique Cancers. White roses are the birth flower of all Cancers, as it signifies peace, imagination, positivity, emotion, and purity. Just like with roses, you need to be more gentle with Cancers because they also have their thorny side.
The symbolic meaning of white roses can often also be associated with Taurus characters – funny, with the ability to attract attention.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Morning Glory, Lotus, and Verbena
Leo: 23 July – 22 August
Being the most naturally creative, outgoing and powerful out of all zodiac signs, Leos are also loving, acceptable, adventurous and warm-hearted. With their ability to bring a smile to everyone’s face, it’s not a surprise that their flower would be just as attention-grabbing as themselves. If you know a Leo, you’ve probably also experienced their need to be a group leader, just as sunflowers overlook all other blooms. Sunflowers also have an important role in many cultures and symbolise intelligence and positivity – traits that perfectly describe the star sign.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Marigold, Dahlia, Larkspur, and Heliotrope
Virgo: 23 August – 22 September
Chrysanthemum is the Virgo star sign flower. They bloom just before the cold winter months and thrive strongly, despite the extreme weather conditions. Just like the zodiac flower that resembles them, Virgos are also famous for their resilient and strong character. Because perfection for them is a must, Virgos have a great eye for detail, making the small and bright chrysanthemum so appealing to them.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Buttercups and Asters
Libra: 23 September – 22 October
The balanced beauty of the rose is a great representation of Librans. Being fair, calm and balanced are life objectives of all representatives of the zodiac sign. They tend to preach unconditional love and harmony, which is the reason behind the classic rose being their astrological flower. Everyone loves roses because of their unique traits, which accurately represents the loved-by-everyone Librans.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Bluebells, Gardenia, Freesia, and Gladiolus
Scorpio: 23 October – 21 November
Geraniums are known for their boldness in colour and strong scent. In fact, the blooming plant is part of a family with more than 400 different representatives, which makes them a great choice for the ambitious Scorpio. The flower also, to a big extent, represents the versatile characteristics of Scorpios: the unique five-petal blooms grow in tight groupings to hide their fragile stems, just as Scorpios guard their weaker and more sensitive sides. Geranium is also a symbol of good health and friendship.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Black-eyed Susan, Heather, and Hibiscus
Sagittarius: 22 November – 21 December
Sagittarius is the most life-loving star sign of them all. Their passion for new experiences and knowledge is what makes them enjoy getting involved in meaningful, intellectual conversations with others. This is what also makes them seem extra stubborn at times. An easy way to make a Sagittarius feel appreciated is to choose a flower that closely resembles dominance. The Carnation is a great example of such, as it always stands out in a bouquet among other flowers. The blossom is also a symbol of love and long life.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Peonies and Crocus
Capricorn: 22 December – 19 January
No surprise that Capricorn is an earth sign. Having their feet on the ground and focusing on what is important for them, is often their main focus. They are known for their seriousness and being the most valiant sign out of the 12. Born in the coldest and darkest winter months, Capricorns appreciate power, discipline, efficiency, and trust. And what better flower to represent this mature star sign than the pansy, which is a symbol of emotional stability, brilliant mind, and critical thinking? Its name comes from the French word for thought – pensée.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: African Violet, Jasmine, and Trillium
Aquarius: 20 January – 18 February
What a unique zodiac sign Aquarius is! Even though many times confused to be a water sign, Aquarius is actually an air sign, famous for its free spirit, being opposite to everything and everyone, and aimed at escaping the expected norm. This being said, Chrysanthemums and Roses aren’t flowers that would impress this star sign. Similar to the striking and unconventional Aquarius, Orchids are distinctive flowers with unique colours and shapes. The flower represents friendship, passion, and safety.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Bird of Paradise
Pisces: 19 February – 20 March
Flower: Water Lily
Famous for their wisdom, Pisces are also sensitive, open-minded, and forgiving. Hence why this sign’s birth flower is the water lily, which also plays a significant role in spiritual Buddhism. Water lilies are a symbol of faith, spirituality, generosity, and honestyb- traits that are typical for the selfless and warm-hearted Pisces.
Other blooms associated with the zodiac sign: Narcissus, Clematis, and Yarrow
