Would you like to know what flower represents your birth month? And what those flowers mean?

Not so fast…… first we need to go over some facts.

Flower symbolism began with many ancient religions. During the Renaissance, nature was viewed as a reflection of the divine and in the Victorian times the use of flowers as symbols to represent emotions reached its height. The Victorians may have looked circumspect but they developed an elaborate language based on flower symbolism to express their feelings to the opposite sex. This must have made for some interesting flower arrangements and cryptic messages!

You may have thought that just the alignment of the planets was a clue to your character but you need not rely only on the horoscope. Thanks to creative minds of yore, your birth month and associated flower can convey interests, intent and emotion as well.
