The floral horoscope
What flower do you think represents your personality based on your star sign? In addition to the well known symbols such as the scales for Libra and bull for the Taurus, they are also tied to a certain flowers.
While you may be used to seeing certain traits assigned to your star sign, you may not be quite as familiar with the flower attributed to that sign. Read on to find out if your favourite flower is actually your astrological sign too! Keep in mind that the dates attributed to star signs do differ as there is no one definitive answer, this is due to the different speeds the sun travels at around the earth from one year to the next.
Aries: 21 March – 19 April
Those born under the Aries star sign are said to be quick and eager. The pretty climbing vines of the honeysuckle are the perfect match for this signs – they’re also eager and determined, growing quickly at anything from 7 to 30 feet per year.
Taurus: 20 April – 19 May
The Taurus sign is associated with the bull – meaning those born under this sign are thought to be strong and resolute, dare we say even a little stubborn? The humble poppy, with its fiery red petals, is the floral equivalent, with its resilient nature and natural beauty.
