Introduction

Those born between April 20 and May 20 have a Sun Sign in Taurus and are loyal, nurturing, generous, and reliable. Taurus people can be downright stubborn when they think they are right, and they may bore you to sleep with their predictability.

They consider themselves to be slow to angry, but when they do get angry, they may act like their symbol “the bull” rearing their “horns”, and charging your way, blinded by fury. They are great lovers of the comforts of home, and they find comfort in nature. This article will discuss the top ten flowers of the zodiac sign Taurus and how they benefit Tauruses.What Are the Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers?

  1. Roses
  2. Violets
  3. Anemones
  4. Poppies
  5. Foxgloves
  6. Lilies
  7. Sweet William
  8. Houseplants
  9. A Personal Garden
  10. Their Favorite Flower

1. Roses

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

A great favorite of many, roses are called “the queen of flowers” and they symbolize love, romance, and beauty, all things Taurus people value. Roses were sacred to the goddess Aphrodite. It was said that a great lover of hers, Adonis, was killed while on a hunting trip, and when Aphrodite found out, she ran to his side, embracing him as he lay dying. His blood tinted the white roses that grew nearby red. Other myths end with Aphrodite cutting herself on the thorns of white roses that grew nearby, and her blood made them into red roses. This linked undying love with red roses.

Another story said this is not how Aphrodite’s rose became red at all. She was born holding a white rose over her breast, and the god Dionysius spilled wine on it, making it red. Either way, the red rose symbolizes love and beauty and the goddess of these things.

The goddess was not the only one who valued the sacredness of the rose. Red roses symbolize passion and are used as gifts to express romantic love. A single red rose symbolizes love at first sight, and giving a dozen red roses is a way to symbolically tell somebody that you love them.

To some Muslims and Catholics, the scent of roses represents the spirit, and some miraculous apparitions of Mary, mother of Christ, are accompanied by roses, symbolizing her spirit. To some, the rose represents the human heart and in Ancient Egypt, the rose was so sacred, it was used in embalming the beloved dead.

Like steadfast Taurus people, roses are reliable, and they return every spring faithfully. Like Tauruses, they need to be pruned and nurtured, and they will give you a lifetime of love and joy. Roses can be used in love spells, and removing the thorns makes the rose’s magic to draw love more powerful.

To attract beauty, make your own rosewater. Place fresh rose petals in a bowl of water and allow the rays of the full moon to shine upon it overnight. Once it is ready, you can bathe in the rosewater or scent your skin with it to draw love to yourself. Roses planted around the house provide protection, just like a devoted Taurus will, and they can be used in teas, pastries, and even potpourris. Give your Taurus white roses to express friendship and red roses to express romantic love.

2. Violets

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

The second of the top ten Taurus zodiac flowers are violets. Violets are members of the viola family, and there are over 500 different species of them found all over the world. According to myths, the goddess Venus was responsible for their creation. Her son, Cupid, was admiring some beautiful girls, and Venus demanded to know if he found the girls more lovely, or her. He said the girls were the most beautiful, so Venus beat the girls until they were blue!

They turned into violets, forever lovely, despite the goddess’s jealousy. Another myth says that violets bloomed when the angel Gabriel told Mary she would give birth to Jesus. Another story says it was a violet the goddess Artemis transformed one of her nymphs into to protect her from the lusty Apollo.

Violets symbolize modesty and purity like Artemis’ nymph, and they also symbolize love and fertility. Ancient Persians used violets to relieve headaches and quell anger. They were also brewed into a wine in ancient Rome and were believed to prevent intoxication. Many associate blue and purple as the only colors the violet flower is, but there are other colors, and they all have their own symbolic meaning. White violets mean purity and innocence, and yellow violets express high value. Blue or purple violets represent faithfulness, which is something Taurus people both value and embody. All colors of violets symbolize devotion.

Magically, violets have been carried to ward off malevolent spirits, and Victorians wore them on their heads to prevent drunkenness. There is no guarantee violets will prevent you from getting drunk, but you can ingest them, and edible violets can be found from specialty dealers. Violets are believed to ward off evil and can be planted near the front door for protection.

If you live in a region where violets grow wild, you can allow them to naturalize in your grass for protection as well. Some people like to decorate pastries with candied violets, and some foragers use violets in salads. Tauruses love a well-planned meal, and some won’t shy away from a good dessert. To show your Taurus how much you love them, bake cupcakes decorated with candied violets or give them a potted violet plant to express your devotion to them.

3. Anemones

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

In Ancient China, the beautiful anemone represented bad luck and in Japan it represented bad tidings. However, Tauruses are devoted people who won’t let a risk of bad luck get them down. They are dedicated to the things and people who they feel are important, and they know how to create good things no matter what happens.

Besides that, while some may feel the anemone is about bad things, it symbolizes more good things than bad. Some myths say anemones are the plants that sprang up when Adonis died, not roses, and they came from the tears Aphrodite shed for him. Some ancient Europeans carried anemones to ward off bad luck and disease.

Victorians believed the anemone symbolized a forsaken love or other form of loss, but not everybody thought it represented such things. Anemones were at one time believed to ward off malevolent magical practitioners, and the flower was believed to be well-loved by fairies, so it would be bad to pick the flowers.

Carrying them into the house was believed to create thunderstorms and lightning. Ancient Romans would go searching for the anemone and wear the first they would find to bring them good luck. It was brewed in a tea that prevented fever and was placed in amulets for protection.

As a Taurus, you can benefit from the anemone for your own magic. You can use the flower to attract good luck to yourself. You can place an anemone blossom in a locket, or a bag to carry for blessings and luck, but the flower is also good for letting go of things you are trying too hard to hold on to. Tauruses are known for being steadfast and reliable, but sometimes they can be stubborn and not want to accept change or let things go. To use an anemone to help you let things go, hold an anemone blossom in your hand and place all the feelings of holding on to whatever it is you should let go of into the flower.

Remind yourself that we can’t hold on to things if they are no longer meant to be in our lives. Then, accept that it is time to let go, and release the flower with all the energy you placed in it to the wind. Letting go feels so good when it is time to.

4. Poppies

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

Perhaps poppies are the flower most associated with the sign of Taurus. The ancient Greeks believed the goddess Ceres, also known as Demeter, created poppies to help her sleep to ease her grief after Hades kidnapped her daughter, Persephone, taking her to rule the underworld with him. There are images of Greek deities Nyx deity of night, Thanatos a god of death, and Hypnos a deity of sleep that have been created holding poppies or crowned with poppies. In the British Isles, poppy seeds are carried to provide protection and wild poppy seeds are placed under the pillow at night to discover the identity of whom the questioner will marry.

A field of poppies represents armies fighting and are sown in remembrance of the fallen soldiers. Poppies were used as funerary flowers in Ancient Greece, and poppies adorning tombstones represent remembrance of the dead. They have been given as offerings to the dead, yes, but they have also been used to express love. Roman and Swiss children play a game where they put a petal or leaf of a poppy in their hand and slap it with the other hand. If it snaps or breaks from the slap, this demonstrates devotion. Because of their sedative effects, and the fact they can cause death if ingested as opium, poppies do represent sleep, rest, the underworld, but also death itself.

Tauruses don’t worry about being overly productive when they need to rest, but worrying about the people they love might keep them awake at night. Poppies and their products are very potent and should not be used as a sleep aid without the approval of a doctor, but the flowers can be planted for magical aid. Plant poppies in the garden and relax near them in the evening with a cup of tea to help you unwind before bed. Poppies can also be planted in your garden in remembrance of a loved one, and they can be placed in a vase on your ancestor altar or at your loved one’s graveside as an offering for the dead.

5. Foxgloves

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

Also known as digitalis, there are about 20 species of foxgloves, and some are so toxic, they are called dead man’s bells and witches’ gloves because they can cause death. They can simply cause stomach upset or delirium, and it has been suggested that Van Gogh’s “yellow period” could have been brought on by ingestion of some sort of foxglove product to treat his epilepsy, although this has never been proven.

However, it is said to create a “yellow haze” in one’s vision, and he did paintings during that time that had foxgloves in them. In ancient Rome, the plant was sacred to Flora, goddess of flowers and spring, and it was what she used to touch the goddess Hera with to make her pregnant with her son, the god Mars.

Foxgloves are associated with midwifery, all magic women do in general, and healing magic. In the British Isles, it is believed foxgloves are sacred to fairies, also known as The Sidhe, and fairies are nearby wherever foxgloves grow. In the West Country, it is said when foxgloves bob, they are not moving with the wind, but bowing to the fairies. Never pick foxgloves in Devon or Cornwall because it is believed doing so steals foxgloves from the fairies.

In Northern England, lore states that bringing foxgloves into the house invites the devil in, but foxgloves are not all bad. In Scotland, they are scattered around baby’s cradles for protection from bad magic and in Shropshire, the lore says placing foxgloves in children’s shoes is protective.

Well known for their hospitality, Tauruses welcome many loved ones into their homes and gardens. A way to work magic in the garden is to welcome fairies, and Tauruses can plant foxgloves in the garden to do this. Although humans should not ingest foxglove plants, they attract pollinators, and they can be planted in the garden to create a nature sanctuary by Tauruses.

Foxgloves also represent ambition and can be placed in vases to bring that energy to a new project, although many Tauruses have ambitions of their own. A little boost during times of feeling discouraged never hurts, just make sure to wear gloves when handling foxgloves.

6. Lilies

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

Scattered across Europe, Asia, Canada, and the US, there are over 100 species of lilies worldwide. They are hardy plants that return year after year, and they even multiply, spreading themselves into lush patches that make any garden look spectacular. Lilies are more than just pretty flowers, though. The Greeks believed lilies came from the milk of the goddess Hera and, the story goes, she did not mean to create them.

Her husband, Zeus, cheated on her and fathered a child with somebody else and then tricked her into breastfeeding the baby, who was named Hercules. When she found out about his infidelity and deception, she ripped Hercules away from her, and some drops of her milk fell.

Those became lilies where they touched the ground. The Mesopotamians believed lilies were sacred to Ishtar, or Inanna, goddess of love and fertility, and ancient Germans believed an elf was born with each lily.

Lilies represent love and devotion in China, and they are believed to make love last for 100 years, so they are used in bridal bouquets. In France in the Middle Ages, lilies became the flower emblem of the royalty, and they represented hope, clarity, and faith. To Christians, lilies represent devotion, virtue, virginity, and purity, and to some Christians, they specifically represent the virtue of Mary, the Virgin mother of Christ.

Tiger lilies generally represent confidence, but for Buddhists they represent compassion. StarGazer lilies represent ambitions, prosperity, and making your dreams come true. Day lilies mean a lot of different things depending on their color. Yellow day lilies mean new beginnings, and red day lilies symbolize romantic love, so they are often used for anniversary gifts.

Tauruses are strong and reliable like lilies and can really enjoy lilies planted in their gardens that will come back year after year. Magically, these can be gifted to people who you want to express devotion to, symbolizing that you will always be a part of their life. To arouse your lover, place aromatic lily flowers in the bedroom.

Turk’s cap lilies were said to be so protective at one time, it was believed soldiers would not fall in battle if they so much as looked at them. Grow Turk’s cap lilies in your garden to instill strength and courage, knowing the magic of the plant aides in protection.

7. Sweet William

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

Native to parts of Europe, Asia, and Russia, Sweet Williams are aromatic flowers that are well-loved by bees, butterflies, and birds. It is possible they are called Sweet William after William Shakespeare and may have been named after the Duke of Cumberland, William Augustus. Sweet Williams are in the dianthus family and that name comes from Greek “dios” meaning Zeus, Greek father of the gods, and “anthos” meaning flowers. So, these were divinely sacred flowers. They represented Diana, the goddess of the hunt and protector of wild animals, and they were given as gifts to the Greek gods.

Sweet William naturalizes nicely in a variety of environments and is highly fragrant, which has made people plant it in their gardens for centuries. The plant represents love and admiration and in the Middle Ages, some European men who had fallen in love would wear a Sweet William in their buttonhole to express devotion.

It became popular to give Sweet William as a symbol of love, and they also became a very popular flower to add to a wedding bouquet. Recently, Kate Middleton included Sweet William flowers in her wedding bouquet when she married Prince William.

Tauruses are one of the most devoted signs in the zodiac, so Sweet Williams are the perfect flowers for them. Since they naturalize so well, planting them in your garden will make sure you have a plentiful supply of them on hand to give the people you love to express your dedication to your relationship. They can also be given as a potted plant or a bouquet.

They are especially meaningful when given to people who you love who lives faraway and a single Sweet William flower can be dried and placed in a bag, locket, or even laminated into something like a bookmark to send on trips with somebody who you love to remind them of the steadfast love that you have for them no matter how far away they travel.

8. Houseplants

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

Tauruses love the comforts of home, and also love to adopt and nurture the earth’s creatures. What better way to embrace such powerful magic than to fill the home of a Taurus with houseplants they enjoy? It is fair to say that Tauruses are great nature lovers, and while not all of them have the “green thumb” that others have, that doesn’t mean they can’t cultivate houseplants.

One plant that is easy to grow for people who might not have as much time to tend to it is the humble air plant. Air plants are tropical plants that grow beautifully even without soil, and can be placed in decorative shells, or even glass baubles. They need more than just air to thrive, but they only need watering every week or two, depending on the climate. You can mist them, soak them, or even dunk them in water, and they need about eight hours of indirect light daily.

Another low fuss houseplant is the golden pothos. This plant will grow long vines and benefit from things for it to vine up on. It tolerates fairly low levels of light, but won’t do as well if there is too much sunlight. Like a Taurus, the plant nurtures. It does so by removing toxins from the air, and it can enrich an aquarium if the roots are placed in the water. The plant is so easy to care for, snipping off a piece of a pothos vine and placing it in water creates roots and a new pothos plant.

Another great houseplant is the snake plant. Allowing it to completely dry out between waterings allows it to be a low maintenance plant, and it tolerates various levels of light. Native to parts of Africa, it is used to protect against the evil eye and like Tauruses, they are very reliable. If cared for faithfully, they can live for up to 20 years!

9. A Personal Garden

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

As Tauruses love the comforts of home, to have their own personal paradise of flowers, fruits, and vegetables in their very own garden right where they live is perfect for them. They are also great nature lovers, and they understand they share the same world with the earth and her plants and creatures.

Each region has different flowers that are native, and planting native flowers ensures they thrive better, and are successful with minimal effort. This will also create a welcome habitat for the creatures that are native to the region and help connect Tauruses more to nature in their own neighborhood. Addition of things like salt licks for deer, bird feeders, and setting out foods for squirrels, and other wild animals will bring wildlife right to the garden, and feed both the animals and the Taurean soul.

10. Their Favorite Flower

The Top Ten Taurus Zodiac Flowers

While lore and culture say certain flowers are best for each zodiac sign, one thing you should know about Tauruses is that they have their own preferences. You might think you have selected the perfect flower to give them as a gift, only to find out it is not a flower they personally care for.

The best flower for a Taurus is their favorite one, and the only way to find out your Taurus’s favorite flower is to ask them what it is. Tauruses spend a lot of time thinking about the people who they care about, and while they will certainly appreciate any flower you care enough to give them, they will appreciate it even more if you take the time to find out what flowers they really love.

Conclusion

When you are a Taurus, your steadfast dedication will be admired by many, and the flowers that correspond with your zodiac sign are very much like you. They are beautiful, and symbolize things like devotion, reliability, and love, just like you do. Bring a snake plant into the home to ward off evil, and plant roses for protection.

Use rose petals to draw love, and let our wild violets naturalize in your yard to ward off malevolence. Keep being the reliable, nurturing Taurus you are, and blend your magic with the blessed flowers that represent your zodiac sign.
