Star Signs

The signs as Taylor Swift songs

Just like your birth chart, your fave Taylor Swift track can tell you a whole lot about your personality. And with The Eras Tour *finally* here (yep, we can't believe it either), there's no better time to revisit the songs and lyrics that speak to you most—which is why we've rounded up the T-Swift tunes your star sign just *has* to listen to. (Pro tip: This can apply to any of your personal placements, not just your sun sign.) In the words of Taylor herself, "Once upon a time, the planets and the fates and all the stars aligned." So astrology-loving Swifties, your music library is about to get a huge makeover.

Aries: "I Did Something Bad"

As an Aries, you're confident, determined and optimistic, ready to tackle any problem head-on. That's why the assertive "I Did Something Bad," with its fiery imagery and bold lyrics, perfectly captures your sign's vibes. You're OK with taking some risks, and you have no regrets once you do.

Lyric that speaks to you: "I don't regret it one bit 'cause he had it coming / They say I did something bad / Then why's it feel so good?"
Other songs you'll love: "Fearless (Taylor's Version)," "The Great War," "Better Than Revenge"

Taurus: "willow"

Taureans are dedicated, reliable and above all, loyal. Naturally, we couldn't think of a better song for you than "willow." In evermore's magical lead single, Taylor spins a tale of someone who's so caring, they would follow the one they love *anywhere*. Everyone admires your trustworthy, stable nature and your ability to bounce back quickly no matter the sitch—after all, you come back stronger than a '90s trend.

Lyric that speaks to you: "Wherever you stray / I follow"
Other songs you'll love: "It's Nice To Have A Friend," "right where you left me," "The Lucky One (Taylor's Version)"

Gemini: "New Romantics"

Every day's a party with a witty, outgoing and impulsive Gemini! So when you're planning your next bash, you'll def want to add the sparkling, whimsical "New Romantics" to the playlist. In it, Taylor embraces the themes of living life freely and not caring too much about what people think. After all, why take life so seriously? "New Romantics" is about to become any Gemini's new anthem.

Lyric that speaks to you: "We are too busy dancing / To get knocked off our feet"
Other songs you'll love: "Question...?," "22 (Taylor's Version)," "London Boy" 

Cancer: "Labyrinth"

When it comes to our Cancerian cuties, we've just gotta highlight one of the most criminally underrated songs on Midnights. Cancers are sensitive, compassionate and always in touch with their emotions. If you're a Cancer, security is probably a *huge* priority for you, and you always want to feel safe and supported in all your relationships. This makes "Labyrinth," a track about the chaos and comfort of falling in and out of love, the perfect choice for your sign. 

Lyric that speaks to you: "Breathe in, breathe through, breathe deep, breathe out"
Other songs you'll love: "Dancing With Our Hands Tied," "Never Grow Up," "Come in With the Rain (Taylor's Version)"

Leo: "ME! feat. Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco"

We love a Leo! Outgoing, friendly and warm, this fabulously fierce sign isn't afraid to express themselves or enjoy the glow of any spotlight. Leos are natural leaders and are super proud of who they are, making "ME!" their go-to song. With a cheerful, bubbly sound and themes centering on the power of individuality and self-love, we know you Leos will totally fall for Lover's lead single.

Lyric that speaks to you: "I'm the only one of me / Baby, that's the fun of me"
Other songs you'll love: "Style," "End Game" "Bejeweled"

Virgo: "Mastermind"

The true perfectionists of the zodiac, Virgos are organized, practical and boundlessly kind. If you're a Virgo, you know that patience is key when it comes to crafting a good plan. Similarly, in "Mastermind," Taylor tells listeners all about how her strategizing and scheming helped her find romance (plus, let's not forget about her love of dropping Easter eggs for fans to solve). Like Taylor, you can't help but plot for every possible outcome and make sure it all pays off—but, ofc, it's only because you care.

Lyric that speaks to you: "I laid the groundwork and then, just like clockwork / The dominoes cascaded in a line"
Other songs you'll love: "marjorie," "cardigan," "How You Get the Girl" 

Libra: "mirrorball"

It's all about balance—and Libras, you know that better than anyone. Loving, charming and diplomatic, Libras are always happy to lend a helping hand and have a talent for seeing all sides of a sitch. Because they strongly value empathy and want to be receptive to other people's needs, they're often able to adapt to whoever they spend time around. Sound familiar? That's *exactly* what Taylor's song "mirrorball" is all about. In it, Taylor compares herself to a disco ball that reflects all the personalities around her. Remember, Libras: Not only do you brighten others' days, but you can totally shine on your own, too! 

Lyric that speaks to you: "I'm a mirrorball / I'll show you every version of yourself tonight" 
Other songs you'll love: "gold rush," "Blank Space," "peace"

Scorpio: "mad woman"

S​corpios aren't scared to dive into deep waters! Loyal, honest and tbh, kind of mysterious, this sign embraces its creativity and is determined to stand by its beliefs and goals no matter what others think. In "mad woman," Taylor calls out the unfair double standard women often receive in society when they fight back after being treated poorly and are wrongly labeled "angry" or "crazy" for sticking up for themselves. A Scorpio isn't one to shy away from the intensity of allll their feels—and Scorp, we *so* admire you for it.

Lyric that speaks to you: "Does a scorpion sting when fighting back? / They strike to kill and you know I will" 
Other songs you'll love: "I Knew You Were Trouble (Taylor's Version)," "evermore," "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)"

Sagittarius: "Paris"

Lively, independent and spontaneous, a Sagittarius is always up for an adventure! There's even more to you than meets the eye—not only are you a total daredevil, you also have an intellectual streak and can find yourself drawn into a deep conversation about literally *anything*. If you're a Sagittarius, you can make any situation exciting (yes, even a long, tiring day at school), so "Paris," a track that encapsulates that same idea, is our pick for your sign. After all, everyone needs a little escapism—especially you, Sag!

Lyric that speaks to you: "Drew a map on your bedroom ceiling / No, I didn't see the news / 'Cause we were somewhere else"
Other songs you'll love: "Wonderland," "Getaway Car," "A Place in This World"

Capricorn: "this is me trying"

Nothing can come between a Capricorn and their goals! Ambitious, hardworking, and thoughtful Caps stand out because of their strong work ethic and quiet ability to show up for the people they care about. However, if you're a Capricorn, you might find yourself putting a *ton* of pressure on yourself because you're afraid to fail. Taylor's wistful tune "this is me trying" is your much-needed reminder that you're doing the best you can and that it's totally OK to mess up sometimes or not have all the answers. And, ofc, you're still your awesome self no matter what you achieve.

Lyric that speaks to you: "I just wanted you to know / That this is me trying"
Other songs you'll love: "Sweet Nothing," "Karma," "Nothing New (feat. Phoebe Bridgers) (Taylor's Version) (From The Vault)"

Aquarius: "I Bet You Think About Me (feat. Chris Stapleton) (Taylor's Version) (From The Vault)"

Free-spirited, unique and clever, an Aquarius isn't afraid to think big and march to the beat of their own drum. Known for their funky fashion sense and innovative idealism, Aquarians are super community-focused and always around to provide inspo to anyone who needs it. The humorous, carefree vibe of this beloved vault track is the perf fit for this sign. Aquarians stand out from the crowd and are true to themselves without conforming to others' expectations—and that makes them totally unforgettable.

Lyric that speaks to you: "When you realized I'm harder to forget than I was to leave / And I bet you think about me"

Other songs you'll love: "I Forgot That You Existed," "Shake It Off," "Midnight Rain"

Pisces: "Enchanted"

H​​ey, Pisces princess! The softhearted souls of the zodiac, Pisceans are imaginative, dreamy and gentle. If you're a Pisces, you love love itself and definitely have a hopelessly romantic side. So, which song could be better suited for your sign than one of Taylor's most iconic love songs? "Enchanted" will have you living inside your very own fairytale as Taylor tells the spellbinding story of falling in love with someone at first sight and wondering if they feel the same way. Your sweet, supportive nature has everyone wonderstruck by you, Pisces—and we love that for you.

Lyric that speaks to you: "I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home / I'll spend forever wondering if you knew / I was enchanted to meet you"

Other songs you'll love: "Lover," Call It What You Want," "Snow On The Beach (feat. Lana Del Rey)"
