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 Sagittarius
Sagittarius, you see the positive in everything. You are a doer, and know something about everything. You love falling in love, and do it easily. This list of characteristics perfectly matches: strelitzia.
This flower emphasises your personality
Sagittarius is the sign of the traveller who is always up for discovering new places and pointing his arrows - which symbolise his ideas and his longing for knowledge - ever higher. Strelitzia - also known as the bird of paradise flower - looks like its bud is filled with flaming arrow tips, but actually they’re its petals. Other parts of the flower are turquoise, the colour associated with Sagittarius’ ruling planet Jupiter. The attractive Strelitzia originates from South Africa, but just like Sagittarius it is now conquering the rest of the world.
