Everything about autumn makes us think of change. The change of leaves, change of wardrobes, change of weather: it makes complete sense that the fall astrological signs are all about new beginnings. Whether you were born during these crisp months or simply want to embrace the qualities of each sign, zodiac-inspired floral arrangements are a great way to celebrate the season.
We looked to Katie Chirgotis, the founder of , and designer-astrologist Allie Couch of to translate each sign into gorgeous arrangements, and the results are floral perfection. As the flowers lose their petals and those early nights set in, give your day a dose of greenery with these three easy-to-recreate designs.
Libra (September 22—October 23)
Crisp days and dark nights remind us of the stark differences between life and death, sunset and moonlight, elegance and simplicity. Mirror nature’s duality in your floral arrangements this Libra season. "An emphasis on balance and beauty in the florals you surround yourself with will remind you of the peaceful, harmonizing notes in the air," says Couch.
Juxtapose a few dried pieces with lively blooms to embody the characteristics of the Libra. Romantic tones — like that of the cafe au lait dahlias, calla lilies, lunaria, and lisianthus used in this arrangement — mimic a cool, soft sunset and will provide you with the simplicity and solace you need.
Scorpio (October 23—November 21)
As we enter deep autumn, this is when crunchy leaves and dying foliage begin to decompose and make their way under the earth's surface, in order to regenerate and share their nutrients. "Astrologically, the season of Scorpio plays out as we feel surrounded by more darkness and a still growing darkness," she says. "This solid mid-autumn time invites us to share our own resources and secrets with intimate others as we become more aware of what's going in inside of us."
Primarily made from dried flora, this arrangement perfectly combines live oak, pistachio, chocolate sunflowers, chocolate cosmos, and dried sweet pea vine for a hauntingly beautiful arrangement. "Death speaks to giving new life," Couch adds. "It reminds us to share and embrace the rich beauty of the dark season."
(Sagittarius November 21—December 21)
"This is paradoxically our darkest season as well as our most hopeful season," she says. "It's in the darkest night skies that we see the brightest stars — helping us to navigate by luminous hope. Wreaths are the perfect symbolic floral of this season, representing things coming full circle, joy, and eternity."
This Sagittarius season, weave greenery into a wreath to symbolize everlasting life and that the paths of possibility are endless. Here, Chirgotis wove a wreath of dried honeysuckle vine, working on eucalyptus, persimmon, and two types of tillandsia.
