In the Chinese culture, the chrysanthemum signifies a life of ease. Buddhists are fond of using this flower as offerings on alters. Symbolic of powerful Yang energy, this flower is an attractant of good luck in the home.
As a personality type, (in general, or specifically if born October 23 – November 21, Scorpio) the chrysanthemum indicates there are many layers to you, and just as soon as someone thinks they have you identified, you pop out with another blossom of surprises. You like clarity and honesty in all things.
In fact, when situations are murky or unhealthy you are the perfect sign to come in and clear the air or heal the situation. You are focused and tend to be serious in your emotions, but you are deeply intuitive and help others identify areas they need to work on for their own emotional growth. You are active and amorous with no end to suitors
In the Victorian language of flowers (where certain flowers were unspoken code, allowing subtle language to be expressed without speech):
Yellow chrysanthemums meaning: gently declining amorous advances.
Red chrysanthemums mean: a proposition, invitation to ignite a new relationship
White chrysanthemum: tell the truth, be honest, a request for utter candor
Violet chrysanthemum meaning: a merry wish for wellness
In Eastern meditative and Ayurvedic traditions the chrysanthemum is associated with the heart chakra. A common practice is to focus on the beauty of the chrysanthemum with a goal to blossom the beauty held within the heart….stimulating the heart chakra.
Some chrysanthemums are perennials: A symbol of returning focus, reoccurring themes, perennial wisdom.
Chrysanthemums that are annuals: Reminders of the cycles of life, impermanence, and the value of seizing the present now.
Dreaming of chrysanthemums indicates an unfolding of the inner self, during a tumultuous time of life. More specifically, it may represent a time of deep personal growth forged by hardship or conflict. The result leading to a stronger, more realized self.
