Are you the type of person who reads their horoscope every day to see what kind of day you are going to have? Are you the type of person who reads it every now and then to see if you can relate to any of it? Whichever you are, you can count it being a fun way to find out what the stars are planning for you.
When people think of the Zodiac, they relate them to personality traits, numbers, likes and dislikes. However, most people don’t realize that the Zodiac has plants and flowers that also represent a person and their traits. What sign were you born under, and what is its corresponding flower?
Does it represent you well?
Aries: Honeysuckle (March 21 – April 20)

They also try to remain as positive as possible.
Gemini: Lavender (May 22 – June 21)

Cancer: White Rose (June 22 – July 22)
Cancers are emotional and creative individuals. They do have an adventurous nature but are more comfortable sticking with what they know. The white rose is considered to be subtle and sophisticated – adored by many like people born under the sign of Cancer.
Leo: Sunflower (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Geminis are outgoing individuals but not as much as the Leo. The people born under this sign tend to have a sunny disposition, much like the sunflower with its own sunny disposition.
Virgo: Buttercup (Aug 23. Sept. 23)
Virgos may not want to be the center of attention, but they’re not as shy as they seem to be. Get to know a Virgo, and much like the buttercup flower, their real personality comes out. Virgos tend to be very organized and don’t mind mixing in with the background.
Libra: Rose (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23)
The rose is a classic flower – something that people adore when they see them. The rose represents the Libra sign, as everybody who has ever met one adores them. A rose is seen as a sign of peace and love, which is similar to Libra’s desire for justice and righting wrongs.
Scorpio: Geranium (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22)
Geraniums are full of petals, which means you can never really know what the flower is like. This is much like a person born under the Scorpio sign, who is said to have so many sides that really knowing them can be difficult.
Sagittarius: Carnation (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21)
People born during this month are considered to be strong-willed but stunning, much like its flower – the carnation. Sagittarius are well-known for their passion for love, which may be a reason the carnation is chosen for a wedding flower.
Capricorn: Pansy (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20)
Capricorns, similar to the pansy flower, ages well. Capricorns are thought to work hard and be stubborn. They love to show off their hard work to others – something the showy pansy will do when it blooms.
Aquarius: Orchid (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19)
The Aquarius may be shy on the outside, but don’t take that trait for granted. As quiet as they are, they are very energetic and outgoing when around people they trust. They are very smart individuals and can solve problems fairly easily. The orchid is a robust, delicate flower that makes it a good Aquarius gift.
Pisces: Water Lily (Feb. 20 to March 20)
Pisces is a water sign, symbolized by two fish. Therefore, it’s not much of a surprise that the water lily is connected to Pisces. People who fall under this sign are often creative, artistic and love being showered with affection. White roses may seem like a perfect show of affection flower, but the Pisces like more unique flowers like the water lilies.
