The best flower for every zodiac sign


Written by:


Flowers are always a great choice during the holiday season. But did you know that each zodiac sign has its own flower that matches its characteristics? Picking the right flowers for each recipient according to their sun sign can align heaven and earth for a year of good luck.


Along with their beauty, fragrance, and color, these zodiac flowers bring a sense of balance and harmony into the lives of your friends and loved ones. Let’s take a look at the special flowers for each sign of the zodiac, along with some gift suggestions that will surely be appreciated all the more because of their symbolic meanings.


Aries (March 21 – April 20)


Fiery Aries is all about enthusiasm and new beginnings. It is well matched with honeysuckle, which flowers early in the summer. The sweet smell of the pink and white flowers goes well with the cheerful self-confidence that the typical Aries exudes. An Aries also is determined to see things through, similar to their zodiac flower, which takes us from late spring to high summer.


Taurus (April 21 – May 21)


This dependable earth sign produces people who are strong, serious, and kind. Colorful and hardy poppies channel the Taurean love of beauty, as well as their resilience in all kinds of challenging conditions.


Gemini (May 22 – June 21)


There’s nothing shy or commonplace about Geminis, and the flamboyant flowers and scent of lavender are the perfect gift for this sign. The twins’ famous dual personality is matched by the many uses of the flowers, which are full of beauty and scent, whether fresh or dried and preserved.


It’s not always easy to find fresh lavender flowers, but you can gift lavender sachets or lavender-based fragrances and oils.


Cancer: June 22 – July 22

White Rose

Subtle, imaginative, emotional, and a little prickly, shy Cancerians match their zodiac flower, the white rose, perfectly. The classic look and scent appeal to the sign’s fondness for the known and familiar, with strong undertones of nostalgia.


Leo: July 23 – August 22


You probably guessed this one. The bright, confident, and affectionate nature of Leos is expressed in the happy golden color of sunflowers growing tall on a summer’s day. Like their zodiac flower, Leos love the limelight and have a strong loyalty to those they love.


Virgo: August 23 – September 23


Shy beauty is the common note for Virgos and their zodiac flower, the golden buttercup. The Virgo’s passion for neatness, precision, and beauty is reflected in the elegant design of the flowers, whose wildness symbolizes the hidden fun-loving side of this sign.


Libra: September 24 – October 23


Libra is all about balance, which makes the classic roses their perfect zodiac flower. Both inspire love and respect universally, and roses also reflect the sign’s warmth and passion for justice. Like the rose, Libras fit into any setting as if it were made for them.


Scorpio: October 24 – November 22


The intense color and scent of geraniums align with the magnetic Scorpio personality. Likewise, the bunched clusters of symmetrical flowers symbolize the sign’s tendency to mystery and secretiveness, as well as the unexpected side that Scorpios share only with those closest to them.


Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21


Cheerful, generous, and adventurous, Sagittarians are a fire sign well symbolized by carnations with their bright colors and strong fragrance. They will always stand out but remain approachable and even goofy, just like the carnations that appear everywhere, especially at weddings.


Capricorn: December 22 – January 20


Capricorns are the steady, hardy, dependable ones, like their zodiac flower, which can survive in the cold, and even in freezing temperatures, with beauty and grace. They are hard-working warriors who don’t mind showing off the results of their labors!


Aquarius: January 21 – February 19


The orchid is the perfect flower for Aquarius, the dreamers and visionaries of the zodiac. Its exotic appeal matches the Aquarian taste for adventure and eccentricity, and the hardy blooms belie their fragile appearance. Aquarians, too, have a dreamy personality that hides the core of persistence and diligence that gets things done.


Pisces: February 20 – March 20

Water Lily

This is another match-up that’s easy to guess, as this gentle, amiable water sign goes with the flow just like water lilies with their somewhat unearthly beauty. They’re highly affectionate and imaginative and love the quieter spots out of the limelight, like the shallows and edges of lakes and streams where water lilies are found.


Once you have your friend’s and family’s zodiac signs matched up to their flowers, you’ll be able to pick the best gifts for them. Their zodiac flowers will delight and inspire them for a long time after the holidays have become a happy memory.

This surprising zodiac sign is best with money


Can someone’s astrological sign tell us about their approach to finances? Researchers at LendingTree decided to have a little fun by averaging certain debt characteristics from credit reports based on people’s Zodiac sign. At the very least, it’s a great jumping-off point for talking about the different ways people handle debt and finances – and what they can do to improve.

The bottom line is that each sign’s averages aren’t all that different from one another, and that there are people within each sign who have stellar (no pun intended) credit histories. Meanwhile, others within those groups are really struggling. In other words, this article is just for entertainment purposes and the advice within applies to everyone, not just those of a particular sign.

Aries demonstrates that some people can incur substantial amounts of debt while handling it responsibly. On average, people born between March 21 and April 19 owe over $40,000. We hope that the almost $8,000 of that that’s on credit cards is being carried on no interest balance transfer cards instead of the usual higher interest ones.


Tauruses carry the lowest average credit card balance, but that’s only $232 less than Aries, the sign with the highest average credit card balances. (OK, $232 is a lot of money when you have bills to pay.) The bull’s credit profile demonstrates that even people who don’t take on a lot of debt can have trouble paying their bills on time.


Geminis tend to keep their debt balances low and their credit scores high relative to the other signs. Even so, these numbers have definite room for improvement. For example, in an ideal world, all credit cards would be paid off every single month so that no interest is accrued.


Cancers don’t have the most extreme debt profiles, but their average statistics demonstrate how a credit score can suffer from adverse factors. Credit scores play a pivotal role in determining what kinds of credit people can access, as well as how much they pay for that debt. Bumping that score isn’t as overwhelmingly difficult as many consumers believe.


Leos seem to have problems managing their credit cards (among other things). They don’t have quite the highest credit card balances among the signs, but they DO tie for highest credit utilization, which means that they come closer to maxing out their available credit. Having a credit utilization greater than 30% (in other words, carrying a balance of more than $30 for every $100 of your credit limit), is one of the key factors that can bring down a credit score.


Virgos are tied with Leos for having the highest credit utilization and latest payments. On average, they also tie with Scorpios for lowest credit scores. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, given that late payments and high credit utilization are two of the biggest things that can knock a person’s credit score. People who have lost this much control of their credit use are often good candidates for debt consolidation.


Libras are represented by the scale, which may explain why their approach to debt tends to be so balanced. This sign has the highest average credit score among all the signs, thanks to excelling at timely bill payment. That might come easier for Libras because they tend not to run up a ton of debt compared to other signs, although they don’t shy away from debt, either.


Scorpios would probably have higher credit scores if they could pay their bills on time. There are a lot of apps that can help people take control of their bills (or even forget about them) through auto-pay. People who have trouble keeping track of everything might find that a bit of free technology goes a long way in relieving bill stress.


Sagittarians aren’t so hot on credit cards, but they sure seem to like other kinds of non-mortgage debt. Non-mortgage debt generally includes things like credit cards, car loans, student loans and personal loans. All of these loans (except credit cards) are usually taken at a fixed interest rate and paid back in regular installments. How much interest people pay on these loans depends on a few factors, but borrower credit scores are a big one.


When we say that Capricorns could manage their debt and credit profiles better, we really mean that most Americans could manage their debt and credit profiles better. For good or ill, debt is fact of life for most adults who want access to the basic building blocks of the American Dream: Reliable cars, secondary educations and a home. That means that it’s crucial to understand how best to use debt – and the cheapest way to borrow money.


On average, Aquarians carry the lowest non-mortgage debt of any sign: About $1,000 less than Sagittarians. Yet their credit utilization is high, and it looks as though they are also carrying balances month to month. Their minimum credit card payment is generally equal to the calculated monthly interest on that balance plus one percent of the principal balance. Since interest rates are much higher than one percent, paying the minimum means paying much more in interest than in paying off that original balance.


Pisces take on a lot of debt compared to most other signs, but they’re pretty moderate in terms of paying their bills and keeping their scores at a decent level. Of course, consumers should try to keep their debts as low as possible, but for those who need to take on debt, the key is to pay as little for that debt as possible while making sure that its monthly bills are manageable. After all, a higher interest rate means paying more for the exact same thing another person bought with a lower interest rate. Keeping scores high, shopping around for loans, and loan consolidation or loan refinancing are all ways to take charge.
