The Best Flower for Your Zodiac Sign, According to an Astrologer
Buying these blooms will beautify your home and put a smile on your face.
A big bouquet of colorful, fresh-cut flowers can do wonders to brighten up your home. They can also have a big impact on your mood, helping you feel happier and more relaxed. Whether or not you're familiar with astrology, you might find it interesting to know that every zodiac sign is associated with a flower that's said to align with one's cosmic energy. We recently spoke with professional astrologer Lisa Stardust about which blooms best suit your personality. Read on to learn the best flower for your zodiac sign.
As the sign that starts off the astrological New Year, Aries is confident, driven, and independent. It's hard to ignore your ambitious energy when you hit your stride, which is why the bold and vivid tulip is your best floral match.
"Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and tulips represent new beginnings," Stardust says. She also notes that they bloom at the beginning of spring, which falls under the sign of Aries. These flowers are large, showy, and brightly colored—a perfect reflection of your proud energy.
Sensual and earthy by nature, Taurus is a sign that aligns with creativity, success, and luxury. For you, life is meant to be enjoyed leisurely with those you love most. And you want your home to be a reflection of this energy.
Stardust says that marigolds are also associated with strength, vitality, and optimism. "Having a big bouquet of these gorgeous golden flowers around the house will help bring a touch of nature inside–which is sure to please these sign's artistic and aesthetic eye," she adds.

Witty, charming, and funny, Geminis are social chameleons and know how to adapt to any situation. You pride yourself on being flexible and easygoing, but sometimes your busy social life can get to be a bit too much.
The Iris, which symbolizes wisdom, focus, and balance, "is a calming flower and can help ground Gemini's lives," says Stardust. The scent and essential oils of iris flowers are also used in many beauty and wellness products, making them a great choice for a night of self-care.
Cancer: White Roses
As the homebody of the zodiac, you like to turn your home into a personal sanctuary, cultivating a sense of peace and serenity. And as the most nurturing sign, you're not afraid of a high-maintenance flower that requires a lot of attention.
"Being ruled by the moon and all its glory, Cancers resonate with flowers that take on a luminescent glow and denote their emotional intelligence," says Stardust. White roses symbolize innocence, purity of the soul, and humility, so they will make an excellent addition to your home.

Bold and regal, sunflowers are true showstoppers, just like you, Leo. Everywhere you turn, your intoxicating aura makes those around you smile. As the sign ruled by the sun, which represents the self and the heart's desires, Leo's energy is all about creativity and self-expression.
"Sunflowers and Leos are inviting, bright, and spirited. Both also represent happiness, joy, and the sunlight, which is the vibe that they give off," says Stardust. Sunflowers bloom during the peak of Leo season, as well.
Subtle yet sophisticated, you take pride in how you carry yourself, Virgo. You have a particular eye for details (some may call you a perfectionist), so your style tends to skew sleek and timeless.
Unsurprisingly, the flower that best captures your earthy and reliable energy is the small but mighty daisy. Cheerful and resilient, the daisy reflects your sunny outlook on life. "Daisies and Virgos are both versatile and easygoing in their personality (they are both low maintenance), making them the perfect cosmic and floral match for each other," says Stardust.

With a natural ability to charm and communicate with others, you're one of the more extroverted signs, Libra. However, thanks to your ruling planet Venus, there's a soft and very romantic side to you, which makes you drawn to flowers that represent beauty, peace, and unconditional love.
"The bluebell is a beacon of hope and love, which correlates to Libra's desire for romance. Therefore, the two clearly go hand-in-hand with each other," Stardust says.
Intense and complex, Scorpios can be hard to get to know at first. As an emotional and observant water sign, it takes a bit of effort and coaxing to get you out of your shell. But once you open up, you have a fun and playful side.
Similarly, the bloom of the hibiscus flower shows up suddenly, dazzling those patient enough to nurture it. "Passion. Power. Transformation. These are all words that don't just describe the zodiac sign Scorpio, but also the flower Hibiscus due to [its] potent energy," says Stardust.

Colorful, vibrant, and a little bit unpredictable, Sagittarians like to tackle life head-on. Your optimistic and fun-loving energy keeps you open to new experiences and means you're never content to stay in one place for too long.
"Sagittarius is a sign that is known for its desire for adventure and freedom," Stardust says. Therefore, she pairs you with colorful carnations, flowers that are commonly associated with curiosity, love, and fascination, a perfect match for your audacious personality.
Known for being hardworking and determined, you enjoy showing off the fruits of your labor, Capricorn. You're not always the first to finish or the most boastful, but your dedication to perfection is what gives you an edge over others.
"Pansies are the official flower of the zodiac sign Capricorn because they are the first to bloom at the beginning of the new year and use their full energy to bloom," Stardust says. They take a dedicated amount of attention and care to reach their full potential, but the vibrant payoff is well worth it.

Aquarius: Bird Of Paradise
Bold and impressive, there's something unconventional and captivating about the way you move through the world, Aquarius. You don't mind ruffling a few feathers and relish the chance to show off your eccentricities.
"Aquarius is known to be individualistic and unique, much like the bird of paradise flower," says Stardust. "With its colorful petals, it's a one-of-a-kind flower like the zodiac sign Aquarius." Its tropical hues are just as attention-grabbing as you.
Pisces: Water Lilies
Pisces is intuitive, loving, and loyal. As the sign ruled by dreamy Neptune, you have a lively imagination and a friendly disposition that attracts others to you naturally. A sign so heavily influenced by its emotional water energy would prefer a beautiful aquatic flower like the water lily.
"Many cultures throughout the world believe that water lilies are a symbol of enlightenment and divine beauty, making it align with Pisces," Stardust says.
