Marigold Flower Symbolism
Marigolds are known as the “Herb of the Sun” and are symbolic of passion and creativity. The Welsh believed that if marigolds were not open early in the morning, then a storm was on the way. Marigolds have been used as love charms and incorporated into wedding garlands. Water made from marigolds was thought to induce psychic visions of fairies if rubbed on the eyelids. In some cultures, marigold flowers have been added to pillows to encourage prophetic or psychic dreams.
The Marigold and Astrology
The marigold is also associated with the lion and the astrological sign Leo. Early Christians named the flower “Mary’s Gold” and offered the blossoms in place of money at the foot of her statues. The Portuguese introduced marigolds into India. Eventually the flower was offered to the Hindu gods Vishnu and Lakshmi. The marigold is also considered to be sacred among the Aztec Indians, who decorate their temples with the flower.
The marigold was once thought to protect against the plague and to be effective in stopping gossip. Interestingly, the marigold can symbolize cruelty and jealousy. When used in combination with spells, however, the marigold is an anti-dote for the sharp-tongued and promotes cheery conversations.
Marigold, also called calendula, is the October birth flower. Sometimes called “summer bride” or “husbandmans dial,” because it’s flower head follows the sun. The Marigold’s flower meaning is “winning grace.” Once considered the most sacred of flowers, in India it was placed around the necks of holy statues.
Marigold is found through Europe, the United States, and western Asia. The marigold is an annual flower that blooms well even over a long season. They bloom practically non stop the entire summer and have few problems. Marigolds are good cleansers and can be remedies for the sting of bees. Marigolds are also known as calendula, garden marigold, holligold, goldbloom, golds, ruddes, Mary bud, bull’s eyes, and pot marigold.
