When it comes to choosing who will be in charge of preparing the playlist for the next socially distant group picnic, you might want to take people’s zodiac signs into consideration. This is because, whether you choose to believe it or not, your astrology can impact the music that you like to listen to. Naturally, everyone has their own unique taste in music, and the cosmos can only tell you so much about someone’s tastes in that regard. But you might be shocked once you start picking up on how your zodiac sign influences your choice in music. It might be the reason why your best friend wants to blast the newest Drake while you simply want to listen to ’90s grunge tracks all day long. But once you start picking up on how your zodiac sign affects your taste in music, you might be startled.
The element that corresponds to each of the twelve zodiac signs—earth, air, fire, or water—can serve as a useful indicator of the kind of music that a person like in general. This classification influences many facets of your personality, including how you communicate, whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, your sense of style, whether you’re a homebody or a nomad, and yes, maybe even which musical artists are on your playlist.
Annabel Gat, an astrologer, recently gave an interview to VICE in which she discussed some of the facets of various zodiac signs’ musical preferences, based on their element. She explained that fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) prefer upbeat and energizing music, whereas earth signs (Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo) like music that has a more organic sounding, sensual, and soulful quality to it. Finally, water signs (Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio) choose music they can immerse themselves in, since they appreciate more creative, emotional, and romantic tracks. Air signs (Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius) adore cerebral lyrics but are still able to dance out to techno that sounds futuristic.
To what extent does your zodiac sign influence your taste in music, and which musicians and bands do you gravitate toward according to your horoscope? Continue reading to get some understanding, and then, while the cosmic ideas are still vivid in your mind, compile a Spotify playlist based on the signs of the zodiac.
Aries: High Energy Beats
People who are born under the sign of the Aries typically flourish when they listen to music that they can feel in their body in addition to hearing it. High-tempo dance rhythms and self-assured anthems are favorites because these individuals are naturally enthusiastic, assertive, and physically active. Because of this, they desire their music to mirror that energy, which is why high-intensity dance beats and anthems are favorites.
It’s safe to say that Lady Gaga is one of the most well-known musicians born under the sign of Aries in the entire globe, and she really makes songs that other Aries are drawn to. The great variety of musical styles that Gaga performs keeps Gaga’s fellow Aries fans on their toes.
Taurus: A Pure, Organic Sound
Music fans who were born under the sign of Taurus tend to choose music that has a natural and organic feel to it and does not entail a great deal of fancy production since Venus, the planet that rules Taurus, is also the planet that rules beauty, music, and the arts. Taurus is the most sensuous sign in the zodiac, therefore any seductive and visceral music is likely to find its way onto their play list.
Artists born under the sign of Taurus, like as Lizzo and Kehlani, are known for serving up soulful grooves. Other performers, such as Mac DeMarco or old-school faves Roy Orbison and Ella Fitzgerald, also bring the soul. In general, Taurus enjoys listening to any music that makes them experience a wide range of emotions.
Gemini: Keep It Lyrical
Mercury, the planet that is in charge of communication, is Gemini’s ruling planet. Gemini is an air sign that communicates quickly and thinks even more quickly. Because of this, they want continual cerebral stimulation; thus, fast-paced and lyrically-driven jams are just what they need. Think about hip-hop songs that are full of puns and innovative twists of words, or songs that convey a fascinating tale. These are great examples.
The late Notorious B.I.G., Stevie Nicks, and Kanye West are three examples of musicians who were born in the sign of Gemini and who have released albums that are full of intriguing and thought-provoking songs.
Cancer: Creative Crooners
Because Cancer is a water sign, people born under this sign are imaginative, sensitive, and motivated by their feelings, all of which are reflected in their musical preferences. The crab has a preference for music that either takes them back to their youth or makes them feel something. Because they are inherently sentimental individuals, you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that they are still listening to the playlists that they like the most in high school.
Listen to music from artists that were born under the sign of the Cancer who aren’t afraid to get their feelings out in song, such as Ariana Grande, Solange, and Lana Del Rey.
Leo: Dance To The Drama
They have a tendency to be drawn to music that is dramatic and exciting since Leo is the sign of the zodiac that is basically the look-at-me sign. These fire signs like being creative and want to experience happiness when they listen to music; as a result, they enjoy songs that are dramatic and passionate just as much as they enjoy songs that are upbeat and amusing.
It should come as no surprise that Madonna, one of the performers who has garnered the greatest attention throughout history, is a Leo. Her tunes throughout the decades have been famous and danceable, making them the perfect illustration of the ultimate Leo jam. Who hasn’t belted out a Madonna tune during their time in the karaoke booth?
Virgo: Lyrical Vibes
Analytical Since Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet that is responsible for communication, and since earth signs have a sharp eye (and ear) for detail, these individuals have a strong appreciation for talented artists and lyrics that put a lot of care into what they are saying. Meaningful music is important to Virgos, and they gravitate toward singer-songwriters that can cater to a wide range of musical preferences. Virgos are willing to listen to anything as long as it resonates with them personally.
Both the lyrical poet Leonard Cohen and the multi-talented visionary Beyoncé are Virgos, and they are two wonderful examples of artists that represent the Virgo spirit via their eclecticism and tireless work ethic.
Libra: Living For Love Songs
Librans have a deep appreciation for romantic relationships, which makes perfect sense given that Venus, the planet responsible for love, beauty, and music, is Libra’s ruling planet. Having said that, Libras are sucker for poetic love songs, and in order to have a deeper connection to the music, they prefer to decipher the deeper meanings hidden within the lyrics. On the other hand, flirtatious and playful Libras have an equal and profound appreciation for the romance of bubblegum pop.
Musicians that were born under the sign of Libra, such as Gwen Stefani and the late John Lennon, have a plethora of lyrically passionate love songs that Libras like. Pop princesses, such as Doja Cat and Marina, are also excellent possibilities.
Scorpio: Dark & Underground
People who were born under the sign of the Scorpion are notorious for the intensity of their feelings, and their musical preferences typically mirror this trait. Having said that, Scorpios prefer contemplative music since it allows them to get in touch with their feelings and assists them in experiencing things on a more profound level. They could be drawn to genres that are darker and more underground, as well as songs with lyrics that are complicated and mysterious.
As a result of the fact that depth and intensity in music can be found across many genres, some musicians who were born under the sign of Scorpio include frontman for the Red Hot Chili Peppers Anthony Kiedis, Lorde, and Frank Ocean. Simply ask any other Scorpio.
Sagittarius: Eclectic & Energized Bops
Because Sagittarius enjoys having a good time, is always up for an adventure, and has an open mind, it is important to them that their music selection reflects these qualities. This fire sign enjoys dancing the entire night away, is drawn to music with a lot of energy, and is appreciative of listening to music that spans a broad variety of genres and styles, including music from throughout the world.
Musicians like Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Nikki Minaj, Christina Aguilera, Jay Z, and Britney Spears have all topped the charts in their own erratic and risk-taking Sagittarian style. Some of the biggest names in mainstream music over the past couple of decades have been Sagittarius.
Capricorn: Jammin’ To The Oldies
Saturn, the planet that reigns over custom and ritual, is the ruler of the earth sign Capricorn. Capricorn is an earth sign. In spite of this, many people born under the sign of the Capricorn will have an appreciation for classic songs that were popular long before their time, so you shouldn’t be shocked if you find them bopping along to some oldies. Because Caps are also profound feelers underlying their stern demeanor, they are drawn to artists who are dramatic and edgy.
David Bowie, the late, great musician who was born under the sign of Capricorn, had a career that spanned decades, and the profound thought that went into his songwriting gives off a very Capricorn aura.
Aquarius: Let’s Get Experimental
The Aquarius individual is the one who is always rocking to a song that you have never heard before and listening to bootleg recordings of the most recent indie techno performers. These air signs have a passion for music that is original, forward-thinking, and out of the norm since Uranus, the planet of creativity, is their planetary ruler. Send a link to an Aquarius in a direct message if the music has an odd, electronic sound and is recent.
It should come as no surprise that singers born under the sign of Aquarius, like as Harry Styles, Shakira, Bob Marley, and Alicia Keys, each have their own signature style and sound.
Pisces: Music As An Escape
People born under the sign of the Pisces are drawn to music that takes them away from the mundane aspects of everyday life. This means that anything from dreamy ambient sounds to emotionally profound ballads may get them amped up. Music is significant to Pisces because they are naturally creative and sensitive water signs. Pisces like getting lost in the creativity of a song, whether it’s a catchy radio single or a 20-minute-long experimental guitar solo.
Pisces-born musicians with songs that are honest and passionate include Kurt Cobain of Nirvana and the lyricist Hozier, but the music of radio-friendly pop queens like Rihanna and Kesha also offers a joyful getaway from reality.
