While most people know that they have characteristics, likes, dislikes and even numbers corresponding to their zodiac sign, few know that they also have a zodiac flower. Each zodiac sign has specific characteristics related to certain elements of the physical world. Just as each month has a birthstone, each zodiac sign also has a flower. Self-knowledge, rooted in astrology, brings you closer to the stars in the sky and the flowers on the ground.
Look below to see what your flower sign is and what characteristics you both have in common.
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries represents the beginning of something new. Aries are known for their youthful tendencies when it comes to interacting with the world around them: passionate, confident and joyful. Since honeysuckle blooms in early spring – the season most associated with rebirth and new experiences – the two go together perfectly! The bright reddish-pink color of the flower matches the fiery personality of Aries.
People born under the sign of Taurus are strong, compassionate and love to surround themselves with love and natural beauty. Despite its beautiful flowers, the poppy is actually a weed: it is hardy and grows even in the most inhospitable landscapes. Like the poppy, Taureans are men, especially when it comes to things they care about, and they radiate beauty and positivity.
Lavender’s exuberant appearance is a perfect fit for Gemini’s social and energetic nature. Lavender is known for its many uses, reflecting Gemini’s versatile personality. With its aversion to anything boring and ordinary, lavender is the perfect birthday gift for the unique Gemini in your life.
Flower: White Rose
Cancers are known to be very imaginative and emotional. Although they like to go on adventures from time to time, Cancers like to stay in what they know. Like the delicate nature of people born under the female sign of Cancer, white roses are elegant, subtle and admired by all. White roses symbolize purity and innocence, just like the sensitive nature of Cancer. But be gentle with this zodiac sign, because just like their flower, they also have a thorny side.
Perhaps the only ones who are even more sociable and outgoing than Gemini are the natives of the astrological sign Leo. With their cheerful nature, they bring a smile to the face of everyone they meet – so it’s natural that their flower is as “sunny” as they are. Sunflowers owe their loyal and cheerful qualities to their tendency to turn their faces toward the sun. Leos are also not shy when it comes to attracting attention, and they love to be the center of attention.
Virgos may not always want to be the center of attention, but don’t let their shyness fool you. As soon as you get to know them, their fun personality comes out. Like the subtly beautiful buttercup, Virgos are organized, tidy and like to keep to themselves (from time to time). Their flowers often symbolize cleanliness because of their refined structure and design.
Like a classic rose, Libra is revered by all who encounter it. As a symbol of peace and love, the rose fits perfectly with Libra’s passion for justice and strong sense of right and wrong. Libra fits into any social environment, as its calm appearance and outgoing personality make everyone smile – just like the rose. Like Libra’s contagious warmth, roses grow like weeds all over the world – they can’t help but spread love wherever they go!
Like the many petals of the geranium, scorpions are multifaceted and don’t let anyone know quite what they’re thinking. If you think you know a Scorpio, it won’t be long before they show you a totally unexpected side of themselves. These symmetrical five-petaled zodiac flowers grow in tight clusters, much like a Scorpio tends to have a small circle of close friends and family members around them. A scorpion’s small circle gets to know its more sensitive side, even if the outside world considers it a secret. Geranium comes in many colors, as does Scorpio, so expect the unexpected from them.
Like the carnation, people born under the sign of Sagittarius are strong, yet beautiful. Since Sagittarians are known for their love, it makes sense to associate this zodiac flower with one of the most chosen wedding flowers! Carnations are a symbol of love, as they are the longest lasting flowers in a bouquet. Sagittarians are a fire sign known for their adventurous nature, as is the carnation, which blooms in branching or forked clumps. The fire sign does not like to be tamed and will always keep an open mind in their endeavors.
Like pansies, Capricorns seem to get better with age. Capricorns are known to be hardworking and tenacious, and they love to show off the fruits of their labor, such as a beautiful, freshly sprouted pansy. Pansies are a popular flower during the colder months. Unlike other plants that need a sunny or semi-sunny location in well-drained soil, this hardy plant can also withstand frost. Capricorns, like their zodiacal flower, are fighters, even in the most difficult conditions.
Don’t let an Aquarius’ shyness fool you. Although they can be quiet at times, they are incredibly energetic and eccentric when surrounded by trusted friends. In addition, they are wonderfully intelligent and hardworking problem solvers. Of course, a vigorous-looking but delicate flower like the orchid is the perfect gift for an Aquarian. The exotic shape of the plant matches the eccentric personality of an Aquarian. This zodiac sign may not like to be noticed, but they don’t mind stepping outside the norm.
Flower: water lily
Since their element is water and their symbol is the two fish, there is perhaps no better pairing than a water lily and a fish. Fish love art and anything weird, and they appreciate unique proof of love. This water sign is known to be very dreamy, imaginative and sensitive. Its attitude to life resembles the environment of water lilies: shallow ponds, lakes and the banks of slow flowing streams. This charming fish swims with the current.
