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 Scorpio
Hello femme fatale! Scorpios are known for their seductive charms, but also for the changes that they're always searching for. This list of characteristics perfectly matches: Gloriosa.
This flower emphasises your personality
The star sign Scorpio is associated with being strong, sexy and dangerous, and the colour that matches that is dark red. There’s no more appropriate flower than the Gloriosa, the ‘ball of fire’. With its upright, flame-like petals, Gloriosa puts on a show. Just like the scorpion, it’s beautiful to look at and dangerous to touch. It's long been used to treat a wide range of illnesses. Like the star sign that it represents, this flower has great power.
