Your zodiac sign says a lot about your personality—and your taste in design. San Francisco-based floral designer , founder of , knows the connection well and teamed up with designer-turned-astrologist Allie Couch of to create elegant floral arrangements inspired by the spring astrological signs: Aries, Taurus, and Gemini.
These spring signs unsurprisingly represent rebirth, connecting to our senses, and embracing nature—but each sign also has its own distinct character traits. Chirgotis and Couch considered the characteristics of each sign and crafted three arrangements to capture their true essence.
Regardless of your birthdate, each astrological sign is said to affect everyone's moods and behaviors when in season. So whether you’re an astrology buff or you only check your horoscope from time to time, consider replicating one of these gorgeous bouquets.
Aries (March 21—April 19)
Since Aries season kicks off the transition from winter to spring, this Ram-inspired floral arrangement focuses on rebirth. "The coming of the Spring Equinox means the soil starts to warm and the very first blossoms show themselves," Couch says. "Aries are like a seed, just ready to grow and change."
This bouquet features some of spring's earliest blooms like daffodils, dogwood, and chive blossoms. The bare branches behind the flowers depict a slow winter, changing into a bright and beautiful spring.
Chirgotis also incorporated quail, duck, and chicken eggs—all dyed naturally with onion skin—to symbolize new life. The ceramic pieces are by , the textiles are by Wild Club, and the baskets are vintage.
Taurus (April 20—May 20)
Time to heighten and reconnect with your senses! “Taurus season is perfect for spending some time with nature and yourself,” Couch says. This Earth sign tends to be very grounded in the world around them, with a love of protecting and conserving.
This romantic floral piece inspired by the Taurus ties together dogwood, bearded iris, lilac, butterfly ranunculus and more using both a dainty ribbon and a hand-dyed leather strap—representative of both the Bull’s femininity and its connection to the natural world.
Gemini (May 21—June 21)
For the twins, two floral arrangements are fitting. “Gemini is a sign of mirroring,” says Couch. “It’s an air sign that does a lot of relating and communicating.”
Play with the sign’s versatility by creating two floral pieces that are similar, but with a slight variation. These dual creations are both made up of river irises, anemones, and tulips, just using different color palettes: one a deep indigo and the other a fresh white. “This is a very young sign,” she says. “So there is an element of simplicity to it.” Keep the number of flowers and style of arrangement minimal to reflect the Gemini’s youthful nature.
