Have a friend with a birthday coming up? Want to gift them flowers? If gifting a person flowers for their birthday consider working their astrological sign into their birthday.
Just as every birth month is associated to a particular gemstone, each calendar and birth month is also associated with a specific set of flowers. While most astrological experts suggest there is more than one flower associated with each Sun sign, there are also specific meanings behind each type of flower that goes beyond matching flowers to astrology.
Here are some of the flowers associated with specific astrological signs. Let this guide help you in creating the perfect astrological flower arrangement for that special birthday person in your life.
