Flowers and zodiac signs

Which flowers match each star sign?

From the old years, astrologers and healers have linked the flower and plant world to the planets and zodiac signs.

In other cases the plants have certain properties that associate them with the corresponding signs. 

Based on this little guide you can see which plants and flowers suit you best, surround yourself with those that harmonize with your astrological energy, and have them at home, on your balcony or in your garden. You may also want to find the way to the heart of your loved one with the right flower.
