This Libra floral arrangement combines romance and symmetry
Libra is represented by scales because people who fall under this seventh zodiac sign are generally “unbiased, fair, and truth-bearers,” according to the astrologer and author of The bridge of love Lisa Stardust. Also, the symbolism of the scale makes sense to Libras because they like to live a well-balanced life. Stardust says, “Libras hate being off-center and always like to maintain balance in relationships, which is extremely important to them.
Libras are ruled by the planet Venus, which rules everything beautiful, romantic, and connected to our earthly desires (think: delicious food, well-made clothes, and stylish home furnishings). Stardust says, “Libras love the finer things in life, like good champagne, sweets, and rich meals. When cooking for themselves, they will opt for takeout from the trendiest restaurant.

It wasn’t too difficult to decide which flowers to use for this Libra floral arrangement, since “roses are the signature flower of Venus, which is the planetary ruler of Libra,” according to Stardust. Libras tend to be drawn to rose-scented items as well as clean scents, so this all-pink bouquet with wisteria vines was pretty much a no-brainer for florist Mark Thompson of Shop in Birmingham, Alabama.
In this Libra-inspired arrangement, Thompson trailed wild wisteria vines up a vintage ladder that housed the double bouquets created with taupe Quicksand roses, peach Ilse and nude Spyros Sahara spray roses, orange ruffled Tycoon roses and yellow-orange combined roses. Thompson says he also reflexed (or opened up) some of the apricot-colored Free Spirit roses to make them look like they were picked straight from a garden. Instead of greenery, he let rose leaves and wisteria vine shine in this floral arrangement. He notes that when the wisteria vine is picked in the fall (AKA during Libra season), its leaves have a kind of orange color, which pairs well with the apricot and orange roses of the arrangement. To help break up and loosen the arrangement, Thompson says he twisted the wisteria vine up and around the scales — after all, Libras value balance, beauty and correct proportions.
