Flowers by zodiac signs

What flowers are you based on your zodiac sign?

Whether you start every morning by reading your horoscope or you only look at it from time to time, there’s no denying that it’s fun to learn what the stars have in store for you. But has astrology made its way down from the sky to Earth?

While most people know they have corresponding traits, likes, dislikes, and even numbers associated with their zodiac sign, few know that they also have an astrological flower. Take a look below to see what your flower sign is and the traits you both share!

Aries: Honeysuckle

As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries signifies the start of something new. With honeysuckle blooming in early spring, the season most associated with rebirth and new experiences, the two pair perfectly together!

Taurus: Poppy

People born under the Taurus sign are strong, compassionate, and love being surrounded by love and natural beauty. Similar to a poppy flower, they stand their ground (especially on matters they’re passionate about) and exude beauty and positivity.

Gemini: Lavender

Lavender’s exuberant appearance perfectly blends with a Gemini’s social and energetic nature. With a distaste for the bland and ordinary, lavender makes the perfect birthday present for the wonderfully unique Gemini in your life.

Cancer: White Rose

Cancers are known for being highly imaginative and emotional. Though they enjoy adventure from time-to-time, Cancers find comfort in sticking to what they know. Like the delicate nature of people born under the zodiac sign of Cancer, white roses are elegant, subtle, and universally adored.

Leo: Sunflower

Perhaps the only people more social and outgoing than Geminis are those born under the Leo sign. With their happy demeanor bringing a smile to everyone’s face they meet, it’s only natural that their flower is just as “sunny” as them!

Virgo: Buttercup

Virgos may not always want to be the center of attention, but don’t let their shyness fool you. Once you get to know them, their fun-loving personality begins to show. Just like the subtly beautiful buttercup, Virgos are organized, neat, and enjoy (occasionally) blending into the background.

Libra: Rose

Just like a classic rose, Libras are adored by everyone they meet. As a symbol of peace and love, roses perfectly compliment a Libra’s passion for justice and strong sense of right and wrong.

Scorpio: Geranium

Like the many petals of geraniums, Scorpios have many sides to them and never let anyone fully know what they’re thinking. Once you think you know a Scorpio, they’re quick to show you another, completely unexpected side of themselves.

Sagittarius: Carnation

Like a carnation, those born under the sign of Sagittarius are strong, yet beautiful. With Sagittarius’ being known for their love of love, it makes sense that they’re paired with one of the most commonly chosen wedding flowers!

Capricorn: Pansy

Like a pansy, Capricorns seem to only get better with age! Known for being hardworking and tenacious, Capricorns enjoy showing off the fruits of their labor, similar to a newly sprung, showy pansy.

Aquarius: Orchid

Don’t let an Aquarius’ shy demeanor fool you. While they can sometimes be quiet, they’re incredibly energetic and eccentric when around friends they trust. Plus, they’re wonderfully intelligent and diligent problem solvers. Naturally, a strong, yet delicate looking flower like the orchid makes the perfect gift for an Aquarius.

Pisces: Water Lily

With their element being water and symbol being the two fish, perhaps no pair goes together better than a water lily and a Pisces. With a knack for art and all things whimsical, Pisces enjoy unique shows of affection. Skip the roses this year and opt for something a bit more unique, like water lilies!

Flowers for Christmas

The best time of the year is coming!!! Time to be with your family and friends. Do you know that flowers can be an amazing gift and serve as a decoration for Christmas dinner or lunch.

A lot of countries have their own Christmas flowers which are used during the festive season of Christmas. When everything else on the landscape is dormant, the plants of our Christmas traditions serve as symbols of the return of green grass and spring plants. They have become must-haves for Christmas decorating.

Couple of interesting facts about Christmas flowers and plants:

  • In Mexico there is a Christmas cactus, also known as orchid cactus, which blooms around Christmas time.
  • In New Zealand, the pōhutukawa tree is often associated with Christmas, as it has bright red flowers which appear in December.
  • Poinsettia, very popular Christmas has a very interesting story behind. According to a legend, a young girl named Maria and her brother Pablo were the first to discover the poinsettia. The two children were very poor and could not afford a gift to bring to the Christmas Eve festival. Not wanting to arrive empty handed, the two children stopped beside the road and gathered a bouquet of weeds. When they arrived at the festival, they were chided by other children for their meager gift.  But, when they placed the weeds beside the Christ Child in the manger, the poinsettia plants burst into brilliant red blooms.

Traditional Christmas colors are often seen in holiday bouquets and floral arrangements. Although they are bright and cheery that is not the reason they were chosen. The traditional red, white, green and gold originated in Christian religious symbolism relating to the birth of Christ.

  • White – Purity, Innocence & Peace
  • Red – The Blood of Christ
  • Green – Everlasting or Eternal Life
  • Gold or Silver – The Star of Bethlehem
  • Blue – The Virgin Mary
