What are zodiac signs?
According to The Dictionary, ‘zodiac’ is a term used in astrology that refers to the patch of sky that lies over the sun, moon and planets. The zodiac includes 12 constellations that date all the way back to ancient civilisations, including the Romans and Greeks. It’s said that each sign of the zodiac is where the sun was located when a person was born, and that each zodiac sign has unique personality traits.
What are zodiac sign flowers?
Just like birthstones, zodiac flowers are another way to represent each of the 12 zodiac signs. Ever since ancient civilisations, flowers have been used to bring people closer to the stars in the sky and are just another way to represent your personality traits.

Zodiac flower FAQs
What are the zodiacs' favourite flower?
There is no ‘one best’ zodiac flower as they all carry deep meanings that correlate with their birth months. However, one of the all time popular astrological flowers that carries positive meanings and is used for a variety of purposes, is the rose. Not only are roses a symbol of love, but they also symbolise courage, purity and passion. They are also visually pleasing and carry a beautiful sweet scent too!
Can you be a mix of two zodiac signs?
Because of how the sun transitions through all the signs, it’s impossible for someone to belong to two star signs. Although you can have a combination of the traits, the sun is said to move forward towards a sign one degree per day before it changes over to a new sign. This makes it easier for everyone to learn more about their birth chart.
