You probably know your birth stone and sign, but did you know that the date you were born also determines your birth flower? Read on to find out which bloom reflects your personality, qualities and attributes…
Star sign: Cancer or Leo
Your flower: Larkspur
July’s flower represents a sunny, cheery and colourful disposition. These blooms are symbolic of laughter and purity of heart, as well as soothing and nurturing qualities. Those born under this sign are very family-orientated, and tend to put others before their own needs. They are also very happy-go-lucky, laid back, and tend to like going with life’s flow. There are no false pretenses with those born under this sign. The open petals on their flower’s blooms represent a similarly open heart and passionate romantic love. In Transylvania, dried larkspur was placed in stables to keep witches from casting spells on the animals. The flowers are also frequently used in Summer Solstice celebrations, and either worn in the hair or woven into garlands.
