Astrology in Flowers: Aries

Astrology in Flowers: Aries

Brave and beautiful Aries is the headstrong ram of the zodiac, known for its passion, leadership, and strength. Here is Aries translated into flowers, full of boldness, ambition, and determination. Aries is a force to be reckoned with, igniting the energy and motivation of this season. I like to think of Aries as harmony at high volume.


Aries exemplifies willfulness, headstrong tendencies, and the urge to compete and achieve. Highly motivated and at times impulsive, Aries takes crap from no one, while their warmth, directness, and candor are both refreshing and appreciated. Aries can be as impatient as they are inspiring. They make everyone laugh and bring big, beautiful energy to so many situations.





During Aries season, from March 21st - April 19th, we are reminded to take good care of ourselves, to enjoy our passions and also take time to cool off and rest the jets, so to speak, so we don’t burn out. This is also a great time astrologically to set your focus on a goal or project of importance, step courageously through any residual doubts, and allow the determined Aries energy to support you with flying colors.


I’ve created Aries here in the language of flowers using seasonal and locally grown spring poppies, tulips, ranunculus, and butterfly ranunculus, all in a striking and high contrast color palette of fiery oranges, bold mauves and purples, and vibrant whites to reflect Aries’ warm and powerful energy. I arranged these big showy blooms in a floral pin frog at the base of the vessel to exemplify with standing stems that confident Aries strength.

“Astrology in Flowers” is a personal creative project that I’ve built as a way to compose together my love for flowers, language, the zodiac, and the connective experience of self-discovery. I encourage you to make space for your own creative explorations that connect your interests and furthermore connect you to the season surrounding you at this moment. Such projects are some of the most fun and rewarding of all to make and to share.
