Zodiac Flowers: What Is The Perfect Flower For Your Sign
While astrology and reading one’s astrological chart are very popular in modern times, the practice and belief system have actually been around for quite a long time. Indeed, astrology dates back to well over 2,000 years ago in ancient Babylon.
This means that astrologers have had ample time to glean more information we can divine from the stars. It also means that astrology lovers have had more time to figure out what else astrology could tell us about our lives and personalities.
Many believe that your astrological—or zodiac—sign has the power to reveal to you more about anything from your deepest desires to your romantic potential and compatibility. What you may not know, however, is that your zodiac sign can also help to inform you which flower is most rejuvenating and right for you.
While we at Venus ET Fleur® are not professional astrologers, we are experts when it comes to flowers, so let us be your guide in connecting you to the blossom that suits you best. Read on to learn the perfect flower for your zodiac sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Honeysuckles have a strong, sweet scent and make a good match for the courageous and optimistic Aries. The flower is filled with nectar which attracts hummingbirds and insects for pollination. Similarly, there is something about the energetic and passionate Aries that draws others in.
Aries is a fire sign, which pairs well with the honeysuckle and its standard natural shades of white, red, orange, yellow, and pink. Honeysuckles tend to grow in early spring, bravely blooming as the seasons transition from winter’s chill. Aries kicks off the zodiac year, leading the way as the first sign. This reflects in their personalities as they are leaders who tend to welcome physical trials and challenges.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The lily is a perennial flower, meaning that it can survive for over two years growing in the wild. This kind of stubborn and durable nature makes the lily the perfect flower for any Taurus out there.
The lily also tends to be dormant in the winter before blooming beautifully and vibrantly in the spring and summer, which is pretty reflective of the Taurus spirit as well. A Taurus values rest, stability, and self-care, so a good wintery hibernation period is just the thing to give way to warmer months where they can blossom and indulge in things they love.
Certain types of lilies emit a pleasant scent, and others can be used as or in food. These two points, in conjunction with how often lilies are seen and tended all over the world, make for an extremely sensual flower fit for any Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
There is so much to love about lavender. From the flower’s violet and lilac coloring to its warm, welcoming scent to its potential health benefits, lavender is a pleasant flower and a good match for the gentle and adaptable Gemini.
Gemini, also known as the twins of the zodiac, tend not to like being alone and can become restless when confined. This makes them perfect for lavender, which usually grows wild in open, sunny areas and in big bunches or patches. With a lavender flower nearby, any Gemini can feel just a little bit more at peace and at ease.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Those with the Cancer zodiac sign tend to be imaginative, loyal, and emotional, making the white rose an obvious choice for this sign’s perfect companion flower. The gorgeous and elegant white rose can represent youthfulness, loyalty, and innocence, with an added delicate nature and sensitivity that Cancers will be able to relate to well.
While Cancer is a wonderful sign, it does sometimes carry with it a propensity towards insecurity. This, however, only makes the white rose an even better match for Cancer, as this flower is also one that needs frequent reassurance and care. Both the white rose and Cancer can be there for each other when the going gets tough, and Cancers will surely find themselves inspired and comforted by this flower’s presence.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Leo is ruled by the sun, making it clear right off the bat which flower is the perfect fit. Sunflowers are big and bright flowers with seeds that are rich in vitamins and minerals. Highly recognizable (and, of course, quite easy to spot), the sunflower brings joy and warmth to all who gaze upon it. It makes sense, then, that Leos are the human embodiments of sunflowers, with their warm-hearted, cheerful, and funny natures.
Leos enjoy bright colors and feeling admired or seen, so the lively sunflower is the ideal companion for any Leo who finds themselves alone with no other outward stimuli or friends around. Sunflowers will always be there to make Leo glow.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Buttercups are bright yellow (although they can also come in red, white, and orange) flowers that usually consist of five petals that have a shiny luster. While they are quite lovely on the outside, these flowers are poisonous when ingested by human beings.
These traits call to mind Virgo, who is caring, analytical, and organized, but who also tends to be shy, worrying, and critical. These traits are almost the physical embodiment of the buttercup’s poisonous quality, as both the flower and zodiac sign seem wary of letting just anyone too close.
That is why Virgo and buttercups can find kindred spirits in one another, as the buttercup’s simple joys will surely please methodical and loyal Virgo.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The blue rose is a flower that does not exist naturally but instead must be created by dyeing a white rose to achieve a rich blue hue. Because of this, the blue rose represents complexity, thoughtfulness, and a certain dreamlike quality that surely stems from the flower’s inexistence.
Libras are gracious, fair, and cooperative people who avoid confrontation and enjoy harmony and getting along with others. They have a rich inner life and tend to spend a lot of time chasing justice, aligning them perfectly with the blue rose’s thoughtful and complex representations. The blue rose is the best flower for a romantic dreamer like Libra.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
The geranium is a flower that Scorpios will majorly resonate with. The geranium, for example, grows individual flowers, something leadership-inclined (and as a result, sometimes lone-wolf) Scorpios will relate to. The geranium has rich nectar that attracts all sorts of insects, much like how others often tend to gravitate towards cool and calm Scorpio.
The sometimes prickly Scorpio will also appreciate the geranium for its serrated and jagged-looking edges, as sometimes this sign really just wants to cut away superficiality and dishonesty to embrace instead honest, assertive living. This is a passionate flower for an equally passionate sign.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius people tend to be energetic and curious travelers with idealistic, open minds and generous and warm hearts. It makes sense, then, for this sign’s perfect flower to be the carnation, a vibrant, beautiful flower with over 300 varieties that can be found all around the world.
Carnations have long lifespans. Though they can last up to two weeks in a vase, much like the free-spirited and outdoorsy Saggitarius, they do much better out free in the wild. Both the carnation and Saggitarius radiate warmth and merriment (the carnation is so symbolic of good times that it is even a special anniversary flower), so this pairing is a natural one.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Responsible and serious Capricorn finds a nice complement in the pansy, which is a lovely and versatile flower whose name derives from the French word “penser,” or “to think.” This earth sign is as grounded as they come, with a thoughtful and intrinsically motivated personality that makes them a true embodiment of pansies.
Depending on the color, pansies can symbolize anything from love to royalty to happiness. These values align with those of Capricorn, who tend to value family, tradition, status, rules, and well-made things above most else.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Orchids are a diverse flower with thousands of different varieties and which can survive in several various types of habitats. This original and energetic spirit is also indicative of Aquarius, the air sign that loves to fight for their ideals, think deeply and intellectually, and behave somewhat eccentrically.
With so many types of orchids, it can sometimes be easy to forget that each is different, with unique shapes and sizes that tend to depend on the habitat. Similarly, Aquarius is adept at tuning in and adapting to the energy around them while being fiercely independent and protective of their alone time.
Much like any Aquarius, the orchid stands tall and proud just being itself, so this is a flower-zodiac match made in astrological heaven.
Pieces (February 19 - March 20)
Finally, we get to gentle, wise, and intuitive Pisces, and what other flower could be a better fit for this empathetic water sign than the dainty and beautiful water lily? The answer, of course, is nothing—water lilies are the perfect flowers for Pieces, as their elegant, aromatic, and soft petals and appearances reflect wellness and peace.
Often a muse in art (especially for good old Vincent van Gogh), lovely water lilies symbolize new beginnings, something that the forgiving, artistically-inclined, and compassionate Pisces understands all too well. With a water lily in their proximity, it will be easy for any Pisces to feel fulfilled and meet their spiritual and natural needs.
