People have looked up to the night sky in search of insight and meaning since, well, the beginning of humankind. Astrology is the ancient practice of following the celestial bodies in the sky to make predictions about life and guide your decision-making. While you may know your Zodiac star sign, you might not know that there are certain flowers specifically assigned to each profile based on their symbolic meanings and qualities.
While it is always interesting to learn more about your Zodiac profile, this is also a great way to choose a floral gift for a friend, family member, or special someone in your life. Whether you are a bold Aires or a glamour-loving Libra, there is sure to be an astrologically perfect flower for you that you will absolutely love.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Aries is the first sign on the Zodiac chart. The Aires sign symbolizes both new beginnings and resilience through difficult times. One of the flowers that is associated with the Aires sign is the sweet-smelling honeysuckle. Honeysuckle grows during early springtime in cooler temperatures during the evening. Known for its sweet fragrance and vivid colors, honeysuckle honors the determined spirit of the Aires mind and heart.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A classic Taurus is attracted to beauty, glamour, and opulence. There is nothing like an abundance of petals blooming from a flower arrangement filled with dahlias.

Aquarius’ are known for their empathetic natures. They are in tune with the energies of those around them. Similarly, the orchid flower is very sensitive to its environment.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
The classic elegance of the Pisces sign is symbolized in flower form as a water lily. Demure and delicate-natured, the water lily is a beautiful floating dream that rests atop a body of water. Like a water lily, the Pisces sign is artistic, unique, and whimsical. They often find themselves floating along the river of life, enjoying the ride as it comes, and love to share this sense of fun with everyone they meet.
As Pisces is a water sign represented by a fish, it is fitting that its flower is water-based. Water lilies reflect truthfulness, good fortune, and peace.

Next time you are debating whether to send bold red roses, multicolored hydrangeas, or a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers, you can leave the final decision up to the constellations. Every sign’s personal connection to its flower will only further deepen the meaning behind the thoughtful arrangement.
