Whether you're a fan of astrology or you couldn't care less, everyone reads their horoscope from time to time and we all know the characteristics of our star sign. It’s not just the heavens that can offer insight into about our personalities, however. Flowers also have a signature meaning, and we can match them up to their corresponding star sign. To unpack the mysteries of the heavens and help you out when it comes to blossoms and blooms, 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 Capricorn
You can rely on a Capricorn. You’re a person of your word. You’re also known for taking care of things yourself, and doing it well. This list of characteristics perfectly matches the Calla lily.
Calla lilies emphasise your personality
Capricorns are ambitious and determined, but they're also reserved. They are serious in both their attitude and their appearance, and therefore often opt for dark colours and a restrained, safe style — a tuxedo, for example. The black and white of this outfit perfectly matches the star sign’s qualities: elegant, formal, classic. The Calla lily also has these properties. It's particularly known in its pure white iteration, partly as a result of its appearance in innumerable bridal bouquets. However, it also comes in red, yellow, purple, orange, green and bicoloured versions. It even comes in black. A bouquet of black and white flowers is able to be formal and make a statement at the same time. You can’t get more Capricorn than that.
