Astrology Flower Guide

The passionate Scorpio, practical Taurus and the incurably romantic Cancer. Which sign they're born under may not rule their destiny, but it may offer you a peek inside their preferences. Find out what makes them tick and what’s likely to tickle their fancy with our astrological floral guide.
Aquarius: Jan. 21 Feb. 19

Fueled by the Aquarian's strong imagination and intuition, the much anticipated Age of Aquarius is seen as a period in which we will experience a great spiritual awakening. Although they crave independence, Aquarians also have a strong, romantic streak, being exceptionally committed and faithful to those they love. Along with their honest and loyal nature, they possess a positive and optimistic outlook. Choose an arrangement that resonates with their spiritual and intuitive qualities like a tranquil phalaenopsis orchid. Or fuel their romantic streak with a bouquet filled with majestic callas, lush foliage or fragrant freesia known to represent trust and faithfulness.

Aquarius: Jan 21 Feb 19
Pisces: Feb 20 March 20 Pisces: Feb. 20 Mar. 20

The less flamboyant of all the zodiac signs, Pisces possess a gentle and patient nature and excel at understanding others and themselves more so than any other sign. With a great sense of generosity, compassion and sensitivity, it's not surprising that they tend to be popular with all kinds of people. Easygoing and affectionate, they lead with emotion rather than rationality, instinct more than intellect. An arrangement filled with soft-colored blooms like pastel tulips, or with an understated elegance like delicate daffodils will complement their preference for subtlety. Or choose an arrangement featuring small blossoms like alstroemeria or a flowering azalea plant both big in beauty but modest in design.

Aries: Mar. 21 Apr. 20

Born under the symbol of the sure-footed ram, Aries are drawn to adventure. With their dynamic personalities, confidence and contagious energy, you won't find many shrinking violets in this crowd. Add to the mix an attraction to the unexpected, and it becomes clear that these folks are best suited to an arrangement that's a little off the beaten path. Choose a bouquet filled with exotic and colorful stargazer lilies, a nothing-demure-about-it bunch of bighearted sunflowers or a seasonal mix of a variety of blooms, all in bold, saturated hues.

Aries: March 21 April 20
Taurus: April 21 May 21 Taurus: Apr. 21 May 21

Even though they're best known for a kinship to their sign's symbol of the fierce and headstrong bull, a Taurus also possesses a warmhearted, romantic side. Balancing their practical, dependable nature is a strong aesthetic for beautiful things, pleasure and comfort. Cater to a Taurus's down-to-earth (and sometimes thorny) disposition, while still indulging their appreciation for nature's exquisite beauty, with a bouquet of striking mixed colored roses, the strong-stemmed, but softly curved, bloom of an iris, or the long-lasting (practical) nature of a carnation, cleverly disguised by its soft, feathery petals and delicate scent.

Gemini: May 22 Jun. 21

Born under the sign of the heavenly twins, Gemini's have highly adaptable and versatile personalities. One of the most creative of all the signs, they're forever young and playful, with a lively (sometimes bordering on a bit mischievous) imagination. Expressive, clever and talkative, their sociable personalities keep them busy always quick to hunt up fun and companions at the drop of a hat. Choose an arrangement that's filled with spirited, cheerful blooms like gerbera daisies or dahlias or a creative mixed arrangement in a summery, lighthearted palette. A bouquet featuring the twin, ruffled blooms of lisianthus could hardly be more appropriate.

Gemini: May 22 June 21
Cancer: June 22 July 22 Cancer: Jun. 22 Jul. 22

Often considered the most emotional of all the signs, it's not surprising to find a bunch of incurable romantics in the group that's born under the sign of Cancer. Some say the Cancerian personality can be boiled down to one word sensitivity and along with this comes a patient, sociable and loving disposition. With their need to protect and nurture, and their preference for simple comfort over showiness, earthy, simple flowers like daises and asters or a flowering plant, like a chrysanthemum would suit them well.

Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22

The most dominant, spontaneously creative and extroverted of all the zodiac signs, the Leo is also warmhearted, generous and loving after all, with the lion as their symbol, they are king of the beasts. Strong, honorable, self-confident and dignified, they think and act big loving the limelight (stealing it, if they have to). An arrangement with grand proportions something featuring tall snapdragons or gladioli will reflect their majestic, powerful qualities. A gift basket filled with sweet and savory treats will instantly make them center stage, providing them with a party to share with (and impress) those around them.

Leo: July 23 - August 22
Virgo: Aug 23 - Sept 23 Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sept. 23

With a penchant for detail, the Virgo personality is known for its meticulous and diligent characteristics. Though inherently modest and shy, they are still waters that run deep. Underneath their frequently unassuming, reserved exteriors, you'll find a wise and witty side with a keen understanding of the rest of us. Intelligent, with a tendency to live in their heads, an arrangement that provokes their fun-loving side, like dendrobium orchids or asiatic lilies will be a welcome treat. Choose an arrangement or plant dominated by creamy white blooms to reflect their love of purity, or pick something with smaller blossoms to cater to their sense of refinement and sophistication.

Libra: Sept. 24 - Oct. 23

Considered by many to be the most desirable of the zodiac signs, because it represents the zenith of the year when the harvest of all the hard work of the spring is reaped, the Libra with its symbol of the scales personifies perfect balance and harmony. Romantic and charming, Libras are naturally kind and gentle, with a love of beauty, harmony and the pleasures that these things bring. A gift of an orchid, with its graceful profile and delicate blossoms, reflects the Libra's elegance and refined taste. A mixed arrangement of blooms in complementary colors will please their sensibility for beauty in artful balance. Or, choose a bouquet with roses to stir up their romantic side.

Libra: Sept 24 - Oct 23
Scorpio: Oct 24 - Nov 22 Scorpio: Oct. 24 - Nov. 22

Powerful and passionate, the Scorpio is the most intense signs of the zodiac. Their tenacity and willpower are immense, their conviction strong (if not, at times, overwhelming), and yet they are also deeply sensitive and easily moved by their emotions. Indulge the sensual and passionate Scorpio with arrangements that are bursting with wonderfully fragrant blossoms like stock or freesia or the texturally rich callas and tropical foliage plants . When inspired, it's said that Scorpios can exceed limits in almost all endeavors (they're known as having the greatest likelihood of becoming geniuses than those born to any other sign), so your creative gift of flowers may not only fill them with pleasure but launch the next great thing as well.

Sagittarius: Nov. 23 - Dec. 21

The Centaur, the combination of horse and man and the symbol of Sagittarius, represents a combination of powerful intellect teamed with physical strength and energy. These are strong, independent spirits, full of energy, versatility and adventurousness. The Sagittarius loves travel and exploration the more so because their minds are constantly open to new dimensions of thought. Ambitious and optimistic, these are the types of people whose hopes are not easily dashed, and who, perhaps because of this, tend to find much luck in life. Satisfy this restless soul's appetite for adventure and exotic lands with an arrangement filled with protea or anthurium. Or, reflect their jovial and generous personality with a bouquet featuring lighthearted and cheerful mixed gerbera.

Sagittarius: Nov 23 - Dec 21
Capricorn: Dec 22 - Jan 20 Capricorn: Dec. 22 - Jan. 20

The responsible, reliable Capricorn is one of the most stable and serious of the zodiac signs. With practicality and self-discipline such a strong part of their nature, they sometimes need a little coaxing to bring out their more lighthearted, fun side. Cater to their practicality (and egg on their inner child), with an arrangement that arrives in its own unique keepsake a shiny, model car or a colorful mug that can be used to store small items or pens after the flowers fade. Their responsible, dependable personalities make them ideal caretakers for a long-lasting green plant. Or choose an arrangement filled with some harbingers of springtime like tulips or hyacinths and help the frequently all-too-serious Capricorn lighten up.
