Whether you’re a believer or not, astrology has been an art and a science practiced for millennia. Flowers are associated with zodiac signs as it reflects the cycle of nature – flowers bloom and grow at different times of the year, just as the earth revolves and makes its orbit around the sun. With this in mind, we can see ourselves as ever-evolving beings, with flowers that reflect our unique natures. Here are the flowers that are associated with your astrological sign!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries are born leaders. They’re often competitive and love to be front and center. Fiery and brash, strong and determined, the energy of the ram is reflected in their birth sign’s flower – the bright honeysuckle.
Taurus (April 20 – May 19)
Taurus are strong-willed and stubborn. They have two speeds – either totally relaxed or charging full-speed ahead. They like to be surrounded by luxury, and often find change hard to accept. Taureans make reliable and dependable friends. It’s no wonder that the Taurus birth flower is reflected by the rose – queen of the flowers, beautiful, classy and expansive.
Gemini (May 20 – June 20)
Geminis are curious and forward-thinking. They have many interests and often find it hard to pin one down and stick to one – the twins in you are constantly pulling you one way or the other! Varied friends, many interests, Geminis are fun and fascinating to be around – just like the enchanting orchid.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer signs are sensitive and have great emotional depths, with great capacity for empathy and emotion.

The morning glory is the Cancer sign’s flower.
Leo (July 23 – August 21)
Proud Leos love being the leader, and desire attention and admiration from all – friends, family, and even strangers. Leos love to take centerstage and dazzle others. But the truth is, Leos have a huge heart and love to give back as well. Befitting showy Leos is the exuberant sunflower.
Virgo (August 22 – Sept 22)
Virgos are detail-oriented and analytical minds that never stop thinking. They’re critical but often it just stems from a need to feel useful and helpful! Sweet and dedicated, they make loyal and loving friends. The chrysanthemum is Virgo’s flower.

Their stubborn streak is tempered by a soft and affectionate nature, deep down inside. Beautiful magnolias are Capricorn’s flower.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Geniuses of the zodiac, Aquarians can seem a little out of this world with their inventive ideas and forward thinking approach to life. They have many varied friends, and can seem a little cool and detached at times, but that’s just because their mind is off thinking about one of their many projects! The attention-grabbing bird of paradise is the bloom for Aquarius.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
Dreamy and mystical Pisces have great emotional sensitivity and almost psychic depths. There’s a part of a Piscean that’s drawn to the other side of the veil – away from reality. Pisceans have great compassion and a soft heart, and need to be around good-hearted people who will help keep them grounded. Cheerful poppies are the flowers for Pisceans.
