Scorpio’s flower: geraniums

What do geraniums symbolise?

Geraniums symbolise deep emotions, good health and resilience. They are associated with protection and security, warding off negative energy around them to create a sense of comfort. 

History of geraniums

Geraniums, previously known as pelargonium, are native to South Africa. When they reached Europe in the 17th century, they were introduced with the name they’re commonly known by today. Geraniums were believed to have healing powers and were often used to fight off bacterial infections. 

These fresh flowers were previously used for medical purposes and essential oils. They can still be found in cosmetics and perfumes thanks to their inviting fragrance. Geraniums were also commonly used as flavouring agents and became very popular ornamental plants in the 18th century. 

Why are Scorpios geraniums?

These determined individuals, born between October 23rd to November 21st, are full of mystery and passion. Despite being a water sign, Scorpios have a lot of hot, fiery energy which explains their ruling red plant, Mars. It’s in a Scorpio’s nature to be protective; this aligns with the protective symbolism of geraniums. 

Geraniums are versatile in nature and have the ability to thrive in a wide range of weather conditions. Similarly, Scorpios have the ability to adapt to their environment and navigate through life’s challenges with resilience and determination. 

Geraniums are multipurpose - useful for many things! Scorpios also have this resourceful characteristic; with their determination to make the best of every situation, they are not easily discouraged.
