Birth flowers for September

2017-09-27 06:00

SEPTEMBER’S birth flowers are the Aster and the Morning glory. Asters are regarded as a feminine flower associated with the element of water and the goddess Aphrodite.

You can also give blooming Asters to someone whose love you wish to attract. With its positive symbolism the burning of Aster petals was said to drive away evil, while burning the leaves would chase away serpents.

Morning glory, however, while also associated with water, is a masculine flower. Its seeds can be placed beneath pillows to stop nightmares. A garden that contains Morning glory is a source of peace and happiness.

The Morning glory root can also be used in a sachet to attract wealth (anoint it with mint oil first).
