What are Gemini’s birth flowers? What are their meanings? And what makes them the Gemini flowers?

In astrology, Mercury is the planet that rules over communication and reasoning. As a result, zodiac signs that are ruled by Mercury are blessed with exceptional communication and quick thinking. One zodiac sign that receives its blessings from Mercury is Gemini. Outspoken and charming, Geminians are natural social butterflies. They love social gatherings and chatting with everyone in the room. However, they are not afraid to turn that charm and quick wit into a sharp-tongued critique when they feel it is the right thing to do. There is a reason that the word mercurial’s root is Mercury because with the same speed this tiny planet zooms around the Sun, Geminis can change their mind about a person or situation and be off in another direction.

The symbol of Gemini is the twins, which is a fitting representation of these folks who blend seemingly opposite traits into one package and can logically explain their every choice, even when it seems impossible. These adaptable souls like flowers and plants that speak to both sides of their nature, the sweet and the slightly spicy.

Naturally, the flowers that represent Gemini will need to represent both souls that reside in a Gemini person’s body. What special flowers could fit this description? Let’s find out what these flowers are and why do they represent Gemini.

1. Lavender

Lavender is the official Gemini flower. Lavender has a long history of use in spiritual practices. Its signature shade of purple color is believed to help raise vibrations and help with meditation. Vibration is a concept found through practices of spirituality that includes numerology or angel numbers. In terms of symbolism, lavender is symbolic of purity, innocence, grace, calmness, and elegance.

While Gemini is the most grounded of the air signs, it is still an air sign. The affinity to air bestows upon them superior imagination and they are often drawn to spirituality. However, their logical nature makes them more likely to be reading a book about auras or doing a quiet yoga routine at home than being out front at a full moon circle. Such is the Gemini duality, two souls reside in a single body.

While not as upfront and loud about it as Aquarius, Gemini is no stranger to meditation or the healing properties of plants, like lavender. It isn’t unusual to find one who wears a special gemstone or has a small tattoo of the Gemini symbol.

2. Hawthorn

Hawthorn is the birth flower for May Gemini. For those of you who aren’t familiar with hawthorn, it isn’t something that you can cut and make into a bouquet–not without difficulties anyway. Hawthorn is the name of a flowering tree found throughout the world. It is a versatile plant that has uses in gardening, agriculture, herbalism, culinary, etc. The tree’s fruits, Haws, can be eaten raw or made into jams, jellies, or even fruit pies. In many ways, the tree’s versatility is not unlike the multi-talented, multi-faceted Gemini.

The hawthorn is also called May because its beautiful flowers bloom in the month of May. The hawthorn is heavily tied to the ancient celebration of Beltane, halfway between spring equinox and summer solstice, which has lead to it being a symbol of balance (and conflict) between two things.

 

The twin, Gemini, is also often seen as a balance between the two opposing sides of their twin natures. Gemini is sometimes accused of being two-faced, but the truth is they have many facets and they will give you what you give them. If you are kind and friendly, a Gemini will go out of their way to help you out and be a loyal friend. But if you cross them, you will see the uglier side of their nature and don’t expect to get back on their good side any time soon.

3. Honeysuckle

Honeysuckle is the Gemini flower for June. The honeysuckle is known for its sweet scent and long delicate petals. Its fragrant honey attracts little joy-bringers like hummingbirds and honeybees. This aspect of the flower is just like Gemini’s natural ability at attracting people to them through their unique charismatic personality.

The honeysuckle is a symbol of love, affection, happiness, joy, and devotion. Let’s talk about devotion and Gemini. Gemini is one of the most misunderstood signs. Some might think that they are disloyal two-timers. But the truth is, a happy Gemini will devote their loyalty to you. This is true be it in terms of love, work, or friendship. A happy, comfortable Gemini is one of the most affectionate friends or partners you can have.

4. Begonia

Begonia is a symbol of individuality, uniqueness, and independence. The flower itself is unique because it also represents some darker aspects of human nature. For instance, the begonia can also mean dark thoughts and as a warning of misfortune.

With their big bright flowers, you would think that begonias would be a symbol of something happy and joyous, but they have long been seen as a flower of caution or warning. So why is begonia is Gemini flower? Well, Gemini individuals are self-sufficient, unique, and surprisingly independent as a sign that thrives on social interactions. Gemini is excellent at socializing precisely because they’re independent and that is one of the reasons people are naturally attracted to them. As the protector flower of Gemini, the begonia sends out warning on the spiritual wavelengths to keep negative energies and toxic people away.

The begonia is perhaps a flower that Gemini should buy for themselves or grow in their own garden. If you prefer I’m sure you can also give it to Gemini as a gift. For their open-mindedness and curious nature, I’m sure they’ll find this to be an interesting gift.

5. Daffodil

Last on our list of Gemini flowers is the daffodil. One of spring’s earliest blooms, the daffodil has long been symbolic of change and new beginnings. What is the zodiac sign known for changing its mind constantly? That’s right–Gemini.

While they are loyal and loving in a relationship, either romantic or platonic, Gemini has no problem moving on with their lives when a situation no longer suits them. They are not the type of people to stay in a job that sucks their joy or where they feel unappreciated. Sometimes seen as indecisive or restless, Geminis are not indecisive they are just not afraid to make a change or take a leap. And if that doesn’t work out the way they envisioned, they will just as easily make another change until finding themselves where they want to be.

The daffodil can also mean vitality, joy, and enthusiasm. Being a symbol of new beginnings, it is the perfect flower for celebrating Gemini’s housewarming, new job, birthday, or as a new relationship gift to your partner who’s a Gemini.
