As well as coffee table books and cool wall art, we're obsessed with having flowers in our house. Not because we think we're in Sex And The City or, er, a florist, but because they make the place smell nice and can brighten up any room.
But did you know there's actually a certain type of flower that's best suited to your star sign? According to online florist Serenata Flowers, some flowers actually symbolise different signs of the Zodiac, making them a perfect gift when their birthday rolls round.
Of course, this doesn't mean you can't enjoy ~all~ types of flowers, but interesting to know for your next bunch, eh?
Aries - Honeysuckle
"Aries symbolises new beginnings as the first sign of the Zodiac. Aries are known for being assertive, and this is reflected by their birth flowers - thistles and honeysuckle - which bloom in bold colours during the early spring."
Taurus - Lilies
"Sensuous Taurus loves being overwhelmed with love, so it’s no surprise that their birth flower is the heavily flagrant lily. Choose lilies when picking a gift for the Taurus in your life and enjoy their seductive scent together."
Gemini - Lavender
"Sociable Gemini’s will feel most connected to lavender flowers, which grow in abundance in country gardens. Its vivid purple colour and attractive smell synergises with Gemini’s natural charisma and irresistible charm."
Cancer - White Rose
"Moon-child Cancer will feel a sense of serenity with white flowers - especially white roses. The delicate white petals are symbolic of Cancer’s inner sensitivity. White is a significant colour for Cancer as it offers a blank canvas that allows Cancer’s creativity to flourish and bloom."
Leo - Sunflower
"Leos are notoriously outgoing and outlandish, so it comes as no surprise that they feel most connected with sunflowers. Enjoy a burst of sunlight from these bright flowers that will remind admirers of Leo’s happy demeanour."
Virgo - Chrysanthemums
"Virgo’s are known for being perfectionists with a keen eye for detail. Petit flowers such a chrysanthemums are associated with those born under the Virgo Zodiac. Virgos can enjoy these little flowers mixed with larger blooms."
Libra - Roses
"Libras have a clear sense of right and wrong, and are often incredibly balanced, much like a perfectly composed rose. The colour blue also holds special meaning for Libras so why not give a rose bouquet, interlaced with smaller blue buds, as a gift for your Libra loved one."
Scorpio - Dark Red Flowers
"Filled with mystery and known for being dark horses, Scorpios feel a connection to dark red flowers such as geraniums. As they are naturally academic, Scorpios could keep a bouquet of dark red flowers on their desk, to add a touch of glamour to their workplace."
Sagittarius - Carnations
"Lovable Sagittarius feels most connected to popular carnations. Pretty and uncomplicated, carnations are sure to add a feminine touch to any home and put a smile on a Sagittarius’ face. Carnations are most commonly associated with wedding flowers, which corresponds perfectly with Sagittarius’ love of love."
Capricorn - Pansy
"Often one of the first flowers to be seen in the new year, pansies correspond to tenacious Capricorns. Pansies often return year after year and spread larger with each season, much like the determined and hardworking Capricorns, who seem to only get better with age."
Aquarius - Orchid
"Anything but ordinary, delicate orchids share a multitude of similarities to those born under the Aquarius Zodiac. Much like orchids, Aquarius are highly affected by their surroundings, becoming energetic when they are in the comfort of friends. With a little TLC Aquarius’ really bloom - much like their Zodiac flower."
Pisces - Water Lilies
"With the Pisces Zodiac symbol being a fish is it any surprise that they find a kindred spirit in water lilies? Like a water lily, Pisces are artistic and whimsical in their approach to life. They often find themselves floating along, enjoying the ride and they share this sense of fun with everyone they meet."
