Each Zodiac sign is complex in their own way and these complexities impact the way that they interact with music. Here are some carefully picked albums that each of the signs may enjoy and why.
Dark Horse – Nickelback
Aries are a force to be reckoned with. They are passionate, bold, direct and do not care about anyone’s opinion of themselves but their own.
Nickelback is a band that walks the thin line between love and hate, and Dark Horse is an album that embodies Aries spirit. The combination of raw energy and aggressively seductive lyrics make this a must-listen-to album for Aries.
Bon Iver – Bon Iver
The most sensual sign of the Zodiac, Tauruses are drawn to music that makes them feel at home. Ruled by Venus, they feel most comfortable when their life is filled with consistency.
Bon Iver maintains a certain elegance and poeticism that is perfectly in line with Tauruses’ level-headed mentality.
Vacation in Hell – Flatbush Zombies
Geminis get a bad rap for being the most “two-faced” of the signs but, really, Geminis are often really just in two places at once. Geminis need to be constantly entertained, but once they get burnt out, they need immediate alone time to decompress.
Vacation in Hell keeps up with the fast-thinking Gemini while incorporating the inevitable lows that keep them grounded.
High Violet – The National
The most compassionate and loving of the signs, Cancers are desperate to receive the same validation they provide to everyone else. They give and they give until it feels like they have nothing left for themselves.
High Violet is an album made for wallowing in nostalgia and with tracks like “Lemonworld” and “Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks,” Cancers can appreciate the somber melodies and heart-wrenching lyrics.
Electra Heart – Marina and the Diamonds
Always the center of attention, Leos are drawn to music with lyrics that say exactly what they are thinking.
These fire signs want the world to worship at their feet, and while Electra Heart is supposed to be satire, we all know that Leos take “How to Be a Heartbreaker” and “Primadonna” right to the heart.
Melophobia – Cage The Elephant
Virgos are known for their communication skills and, when it comes to music, their interest lies in the lyrics. Their attention to detail makes them more drawn to music that has a deeper underlying meaning.
Cage The Elephant are amazing lyricists and Melophobia has some of the most introspective lyrics out of their discography, making it the quintessential album for Virgos.
Cry – Cigarettes After Sex
Ruled by Venus, Libras love love. These hopeless romantics find beauty in the little details and are always looking for music that makes them feel something.
Cry is an album that was made for falling in love and falling apart, so Libras can appreciate the simplistic depth of the lyrics.
OK, I’M SICK – Badflower
Scorpios are known for their intense emotions that are often overwhelming and a little bit dramatic. The only person a Scorpio will ever truly trust is themselves, and they are masters at bottling up how they feel as long as it saves them from getting hurt.
Badflower’s OK, I’M SICK has the perfect combination of heavy lyrics and dynamic effervescence that keeps the easily bored Scorpio locked in.
Evil Plans – Magic Bronson
The open-minded and free-spirited Sagittarius is always ready for an adventure. When it comes to music, you can almost always catch Sagittarians listening to tracks that make them want to dance until the sun rises.
Evil Plans by Magic Bronson is an album that matches these fire signs’ eclectic mindset and high-energy personalities.
Scary Monsters – David Bowie
Ruled by Saturn, Capricorns are not ones to hide their emotions and you will always know exactly what they are thinking.
Clearly articulating deep emotions, Scary Monsters is an album that is made for wallowing in your feelings and dancing away the pain.
Kiddo -Tove Styrke
Aquarians are always ahead of the trends and they love to tell you that “they did it first.”
Their individuality complex thrives off of music that is futuristic and underground, making Trove Stryke’s Kiddo the ideal soundtrack for an Aquarius.
We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic – Foxygen
Though they would never admit it, Pisces are sensitive and in tune with their emotions. They are often overwhelmed by their own thoughts and, in turn, use music as a way to escape from reality.
We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic is an album that Pisces can completely engulf themselves in and drown out their inner anxieties, with tracks like “Shuggie” consuming their minds.
