Spring begins with Aries, the first zodiac sign. Thistle, a tenacious, prickly flowering plant, symbolizes Aries' battle-ready, armor-on, action-oriented, bloom-from-blood mode.
Eve, of the leaf bikini, rib meat, and untamed appetites, was a Taurus. This flower is reported to have grown from her tears after being expelled from Eden, a bull speciality.
Geminis are twins and prone to indecision. Geminis vibrate with the daisy because they are dualism incarnate. Geminis, controlled by Mercury, are versatile, talkative, and successful in any environment.
July's flower, larkspur, represents Cancer. Cancer symbolizes the sacred feminine, healing, and control. Thus, larkspur has been used as medicine and poison for both mundane and magical purposes.
These tall flowers adore the sun, which rules Leo. The Incas and Aztecs used the flower in temple rituals to represent the sun. Leos are natural party starters and can cheer up a stranger.
Chinese chrysanthemums, known as the Four Gentlemen or Four Noble Ones, blossom in fall and represent virtues. Chrysanthemums, like Virgos, are resilient and courageous in the face of hardship.
Libras like classic lines and facial symmetry. The cosmo flower's name originates from Greek kosmos, meaning total harmony between earth and universe. Think big. Cosmetics are also kosmos and cosmo.
Pluto rules Scorpio, the eighth house of sex, death, and metamorphosis. In Ovid's epic "Metamorphoses," the poet weaves sex and death to tell the narrative of how the anemone was created by Adonis and Aphrodite's fatal love.
Mutable fire sign Sagittarius seeks mental and physical freedom. The peony is named after Paeon, a student of Asclepius, the god of medicine, who was trained by Chiron, the centaur symbol for Sagittarius.
Capricorn, the zodiac's builder, perseveres to succeed. Sea goats, like ivy, are born to climb and may thrive in poor soil, harsh childhoods, and heavy shadow.
Ruled by structured Saturn and chaos courting Uranus, Aquarius is the boundary dwelling, anarchist outsider of the zodiac and in kind, orchids resemble engorged alien genitalia.
Water sign Pisces rules the twelfth house of belief, escape, and the unconscious. Water lilies close at night and open at morning, symbolizing rebirth in Buddhism and Hinduism.
