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 Leo
Leo, you’re irresistible! You’re charming, sparkling and bursting with creativity. You’re also a little bit lazy, but there’s no harm in that from time to time. In the end you give back all the love you receive with interest. This list of characteristics perfectly matches: sunflower.
This flower emphasises your personality
What flower other than the sunflower could possibly be a better match with Leo, the king of the horoscope and the embodiment of the sun? The flower also looks like the star sign: large and powerful with petals that radiate from the heart, just like the mane around a lion’s head. The flower always turns with the sun, makes you smile and triggers thoughts of summer. The Incas celebrated it as an image of their sun god, and the flower has also been used frequently in art to symbolise the sun. As a positive flower with a strong symbolic value, it’s no surprise that it often appears in the logos of environmental organisations and charities.
