The Quest For My Flowers Honouring The Birth Date

When you want to start adding some flowers into your garden.
In case you are a flower-lovers, you might face difficulty in choosing some of them. Because you love all! You want to have it all but sadly your space says no.

You can only plant some.

Where is this idea from?

As an Asian, our culture & tradition have been working with nature all along. We even give the words and the meanings of everything, literally, every single thing.

Because nature is part of us, giving us life, taking care of us. Hence we worship nature. Whether Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai, etc. every tree, every flower has its own meaning.

We believe nature gives us power even each of us as an individual. Here is my quest. As of right now, I live far away from my mother nature, my circle, my environment. Honesty, I do not feel well & comfortable like when I was living in my homeland where I can be fully myself (you didn’t know it until you know it.)

Take the flowers for example. Different flowers have different meanings. Anyway, don’t take it seriously. It’s just for fun 🙂

Why I do this

My quest is, however, to find and create the most friendliness space for myself. At least making myself a little bit feel home (bring my energy back to where I was.) Because of the global pandemic, I could not just travel across the continent or anywhere else. So if I have to live here, I have to bring my energy here as well. That’s why I started to study flowers and their meanings. In the meaning of energy in both physical and mental forms.

Therefore, my quest is: to find flowers that symbolize and harmony with my energy.

Flowers for Sun-child

I was born on Sunday. Definitely, sun means fire, brightness, burn, heat. No doubt I feel best in warm. I was born with fire. So I worship fire. Red is my color. But flowers should be in the range of yellow and orange.

I was suggested to plant some flower that symbolizes the Sun e.g. sunflower. Also, any flowers with orange/yellow tone e.g. Cassia fistula, Goniothalamus repevensis (Genus Annonaceae) แสดสยาม, Canna indica L., Hebaceous Perenial, Gerbera, and orange rose.

Flowers for Leo & Virgo

My zodiac sign is in between Leo & Virgo. (It’s more likely lean to Leo.)

Leo ruled by the Sun (such a well synchronized with my birthday.) Hence, the flowers are sunflower, marigold, and rosemary.

Adding to that list: safflower (Carthamus), croton, Joseph’s coat (Codiaeum), marigold, gerbera, crocosmia, dahlia, clivia, sunflower by pickupflowers.com

Somehow, I will still keep in mind that my zodiac sign is in the spectrum of Virgo as well. And the Virgo ruled by Mercury. That symbolized to brightened color flowers (particularly blue or yellow) but small such as in this list: monkshood (Aconitum), hypericum (St John’s wort), chrysanthemum, eucalyptus, veronica, violet, ivy, thistle flowers.

Tree/Flowers specific to your birthday (month & date)

But we all know that different regions of the world have different cultures & beliefs 🙂 Because each region has a specific climate. Therefore, different plants and trees can grow specifically.

So I have found some information extend to the Japanese & Korean cultures.

According to Korean, my tree is weeping willow. You may find out here.

My birth month is September. Hence my flower, according to Japanese, is Autumn zephyrlily, Amaryllidaceae zephyrlily. Find out here (lovegreen.net.)

Another website states that flowers are used as a symbol. In the old days, Japanese people will stamp their family name (symbolized by flowers) as the signature when they write a letter to someone. But if your name doesn’t symbolize the flower, you can still find out the flower by your birthdate. In case you want to find out, I put the link below.
