Whether you believe in astrology or not, everyone reads their horoscope from time to time. You can probably list the characteristics of the star sign under which you were born. It’s not just the heavens that have something to say about your personality. Flowers also have a signature which can be appropriately matched to a star sign. We’ve produced a floral horoscope in collaboration with ELLE and astrologer Bernard Fitzwalter. Read on to find out which flower is right for you!
What the stars say about Aries
The first sign of the zodiac. Maybe that’s why you always want to lead and be at the top. The Ram goes straight for its goal and has plenty of energy. This list of characteristics perfectly matches: tulip.
This flower emphasises your personality
Everything associated with Aries needs to be simple, direct, distinctive and preferably bright red. That makes the tulip the ultimate Aries flower (although it also comes in a host of other colours). Although most people think that the tulip is synonymous with everything Dutch it actually originates from western Asia, where it was already linked to the sign of the Ram in ancient texts. The flower’s long history goes back to the time of the Ottoman Empire, and it often plays a role in Turkish and Persian art as a religious or royal symbol.
