Whether you start every morning by reading your horoscope or you only look at it from time to time, there’s no denying that it’s fun to learn what the stars have in store for you. But has astrology made its way down from the sky to Earth? While your zodiac may be written in the stars, there’s a corresponding flower that aligns with your astrological sign.

Zodiac Signs

While most people know they have corresponding traits, likes, dislikes, and even numbers associated with their zodiac sign, few know that they also have an astrological flower. Every zodiac sign has a specific characteristics that connect to certain items in the physical world. Just like every month has a birthstone, every zodiac sign has a flower. Self-awareness rooted in astrology brings you closer to the stars in the sky and the flowers on the ground.

Take a look below to see what your flower sign is and the traits you both share!

Aries: March 21 – April 20

Flower: Honeysuckle

As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries signifies the start of something new. Aries are known for their youthful tendencies when it comes to interacting with the world around them — passionate, confident, and cheerful. With honeysuckle blooming in early spring — the season most associated with rebirth and new experiences — the two pair perfectly together! The lively reddish-pink color of the flower matches the fiery personality of an Aries.

Taurus: April 21 – May 21

Flower: Poppy

People born under the Taurus sign are strong, compassionate, and love being surrounded by love and natural beauty. Despite having beautiful blossoms, poppies are technically classified as weeds — they’re resilient, growing in even the most inhospitable landscapes. Just like a poppy flower, Tauruses stand their ground, especially on matters they’re passionate about, and exude beauty and positivity.

Gemini: May 22 – June 21

Flower: Lavender

Lavender’s exuberant appearance perfectly blends with a Gemini’s social and energetic nature. Lavender is known for its diverse uses, similar to a Gemini’s versatile personality. With a distaste for the bland and ordinary, lavender makes the perfect birthday present for the wonderfully unique Gemini in your life.

Cancer: June 22 – July 22

Flower: White rose

Cancers are known for being highly imaginative and emotional. Though they enjoy the adventure from time to time, Cancers find comfort in sticking to what they know. Like the delicate nature of people born under the feminine zodiac sign of Cancer, white roses are elegant, subtle, and universally adored. White roses symbolize purity and innocence, just like a Cancer’s sensitive nature. But, be gentle with this sign, because, just like their flower, they have a thorny side, too.

Leo: July 23 – August 22

Flower: Sunflower

Perhaps the only people more social and outgoing than Geminis are those born under the Leo sign. With their happy demeanor bringing a smile to everyone’s face they meet, it’s only natural that their flower is just as “sunny” as they are! Sunflowers get their loyal and bright characteristics from their tendency to turn their faces toward the sun. Similarly, Leos are not shy when it comes to stepping into the limelight and are attracted to being the center of attention.

Virgo: August 23 – September 23

Flower: Buttercup

Virgos may not always want to be the center of attention, but don’t let their shyness fool you. Once you get to know them, their fun-loving personality begins to show. Just like the subtly beautiful buttercup, Virgos are organized, neat, and enjoy (occasionally) blending into the background. The flowers most often symbolize neatness because of their sophisticated structure and design.

Libra: September 24 – October 23

Flower: Rose

Just like a classic rose, Libras are adored by everyone they meet. As a symbol of peace and love, roses perfectly complement a Libra’s passion for justice and strong sense of right and wrong. Libras can often mesh into any social atmosphere, as their calm demeanors and outgoing personalities can easily put a smile on anyone’s face, similar to the rose. Just like the Libra’s contagious warmth, roses also grow as weeds all around the world. They can’t help but spread the love everywhere they go!

Scorpio: October 24 – November 22

Flower: Geranium

Like the many petals of geraniums, Scorpios have many sides to them and never let anyone fully know what they’re thinking. Once you think you know a Scorpio, they’re quick to show you another, completely unexpected side of themselves. These symmetrical five-petal zodiac flowers grow in tight bunches, similar to a Scorpio’s tendency to keep a small circle of close friends and family around them. A Scorpio’s small circle will get to know a more sensitive side despite the outside world seeing them as a mystery. The geranium flower comes in many colors, just like Scorpios, so expect the unexpected from them.

Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21

Flower: Carnation

Like a carnation, those born under the sign of Sagittarius are strong yet beautiful. With Sagittariuses being known for their love of love, it makes sense that these zodiac flowers are paired with one of the most commonly chosen wedding flowers! Carnations are a symbol of love because they are often the longest lasting flowers in a bouquet. Sagittariuses are a fire sign, known for their adventurousness, just as a carnation blooms in branched or forked clusters. The fire sign does not like being tamed and will always carry an open mind in their endeavors.

Capricorn: December 22 – January 20

Flower: Pansy

Like a pansy, Capricorns seem to only get better with age! Known for being hardworking and tenacious, Capricorns enjoy showing off the fruits of their labor, similar to a newly sprung, showy pansy. Pansies are a popular bloom in the cooler months. The hardy plant can survive freezing conditions, unlike other plants that typically require sunny or partially sunny positions in well-draining soils. Capricorns, just like their zodiac flower, are warriors, even in the toughest conditions.

Aquarius: January 21 – February 19

Flower: Orchid

Don’t let an Aquarius’ shy demeanor fool you. While they can sometimes be quiet, they’re incredibly energetic and eccentric when around friends they trust. Plus, they’re wonderfully intelligent and diligent problem solvers. Naturally, a strong yet delicate-looking flower like the orchid makes the perfect gift for an Aquarius. The exotic shape of the plant aligns with the eccentric personality of an Aquarius. This sign may not be one to stand in the limelight, but they certainly don’t mind straying from the norm.

Pisces: February 20 – March 20

Flower: Water Lily

With their element being water and symbol being the two fish, perhaps no pair goes together better than a water lily and a Pisces. With a knack for art and all things whimsical, Pisces enjoy unique shows of affection. This water sign is known for being quite dreamy, imaginative, and sensitive. Their attitude for life is similar to the environment of water lilies — shallow ponds, lakes, and the edges of slow-moving streams. The charming Pisces is all about going with the flow.
