Flowers can instantly beautify a room, pick up your spirits, and remind us of the incredible power of nature. 

Each different type of flower has its own meaning, and it's believed that these flower meanings are associated with astrology as they express characteristics and qualities of the 12 different zodiac signs.

Just like Gemini, there's very little lavender can't do. Besides being beautiful and fragrant, when the flower is turned into an essential oil, it has a calming effect, can be used as a sleep aid, reduces swelling, helps with all kinds of skin issues, and alleviates nausea or motion sickness.

It's good to have a little lavender and a Gemini in your life.

Chrysanthemums have many layers to them and aren't subdued in their appearance, much like Scorpio.

Scorpios are also well-known for their passions and connections with other people. Not surprisingly, red chrysanthemums symbolize the invitation to form a new relationship.
