Spring is here and our April showers will soon bring tons of May flowers for us to enjoy. Did you know that there are certain flowers and plants associated with specific zodiac signs? Well, there are, and you can adorn your home with flowers that speak to your astrological energies.
Flowers for the Zodiac
Flowers are a lovely addition to any environment, and they are even more when you enjoy them because they naturally boost your energy. The various zodiac signs are governed by specific elements (fire, water, earth, and air). When selecting the best flowers for yourself, consider your personal zodiac placements, or the energy of the element that you would like to increase in your life. You’ll be very surprised at just how much your personal energy is positively impacted by choosing flowers based on your zodiac imprint.
If you have highlighted fire energy of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, consider flowers and plants that put on a show and get you to take notice. Honeysuckle draws Aries in with its mellow yellow buds and its fragrant scent, and if you are brave enough, you can enjoy a taste of its sweet nectar. The sunflower is all its glory belongs to none other than Leo. Since Leo is ruled by the sun, it makes sense that the one flower that faces in the direction of the sun would be linked to this fiery zodiac sign. For lucky Sagittarius, there is the carnation which comes in a variety of colors offering the spice of life and joy de vivre that buoyant Sagittarius is often known for.
The water signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces have their applicable flowers. The delicate white rose represents Cancer energy perfectly as it is gentle, graceful, and refined. The red geranium suits Scorpio with its rich, deep red that gets this flower noticed in a direct but subtle way…quite like with Scorpio. Resonating with water energy, the water lily is a perfect fit for the sensitive, ethereal sign of Pisces.
As earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are the steady rocks of the zodiac, and their applicable flower energies align with their stable energy. The poppy flower is connected with Taurus as it is a very simple yet enduring flower that is often a solid staple for garden beds and decorative landscaping. The dainty buttercup is the flower for humble Virgo offering simple decorative function while providing a number of medicinal benefits for skin irritation and rheumatism. Capricorn has the pansy which is associated with memories, thoughts, and in some cases sorrow…which aligns with Capricorn’s stern ruler, Saturn.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius hold the energy of air, and their corresponding flowers are quite the conversation starters for these communicative zodiac signs. The fragrant lavender is Gemini’s flower offering the delightful whiff of fragrance on the wind. The elegance and beauty of the red rose is perfect for the Venus-ruled sign of Libra where class, grace, and balance are highlighted. Quirky Aquarius has the orchid as its representative which makes sense because orchids are exotic, different, and very much influenced by the environment or in the case of Aquarius, the society in which it finds itself.
Spring is officially here, so make the most of it by enjoying the beauty of nature’s blooms astrology style.
