Songs For The Sun Signs
Aquarius – Heal The World by Michael Jackson
This song says, “Heal the world, make it a better place for you and for me and the entire human race, there are people dying, if you care enough for the living make a better place for you and for me.” A child speaks at the beginning of the song saying, “Think about the generations, we want to make it a better place for the children and their children’s children so that they know it’s a better world for them.” This song is quintessentially Aquarius because it is humanitarian and big picture.
They look to help the world and are futuristic in their thinking. They’re also full of love and see everyone as family. This song inspires world peace and love like an Aquarius will aim to do.
Pisces – Get Together by The Youngbloods
This song says “Come on people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now,” and, “We are but moment’s sunlight fading in the grass.” This depicts a Pisces so well because they love everyone, live in the moment and want everyone to get along. They often have a hippie mentality and an artistic or poetic view of the world as outside of the box thinkers. Read the song lyrics in full to get to know this sign’s personality, it will really help you see the good traits of a Pisces.
They need to be aware of the typical traits that characterized the Piscean Age which were self sacrificial – meaning Pisces needs to be careful they don’t focus so much on making others happy that it’s to their own detriment.
Aries – Boss by Fifth Harmony
This fast paced song shows the strengths of an Aries which is fast moving, hard working, direct and to the point boss-type energy. The lyrics say, “Working for my money ‘cause that’s what my mamma taught me,” and, “Confident, that’s me I’m confident.” They want people to speak directly so time isn’t wasted because, just as the song says, “I already know what you’re trying to say.” They are money makers, movers and shakers and as this Aries theme songs goes, “Everyday is payday,” which means they are independent and work hard for the things they want.
This fire sign can intimidate people because it always has a powerful energy that can get people motivated and whip them into shape.
Taurus – You Don’t Own Me by Grace
Stubborn Taurus doesn’t like to be controlled and this song tells the truth about bulls, which we can learn a lot from. The song says, “Don’t tell me what to do and don’t tell me what to say,” and “You don’t own me, don’t try to change me in anyway,” and, “Just let me be myself that’s all I ask of you.” Taurus needs room to make decisions on their own terms, so accepting that will allow you to get along with them easier.
They also enjoy life through their senses and must have the freedom to do so. As an earth sign, they are comforted by things of the earth, so let them have some freedom to be a little materialistic and they will be fine.
Gemini – Talk Too Much by Coin
This air sign wants to talk all the time. They have a curious mind and their nature is to ask questions and try to figure things out. They are intellectual and can handle abstract thinking which are their strong points. They will talk to anybody and it’s true just as the song says, “I talk too much, honey come put your lips on mine and shut me up, we could blame it on human nature.” This song is like the confessions of the inside mind of a Gemini. They are very social because of their chattiness and make great teachers, marketers and writers because they have an outlet for that energy.
Never feel bad kindly saying you’re done talking with a Gemini, they’ve heard it before. They work things out in their head by talking.
Cancer – Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley
Oh Cancer, the loving water sign of the zodiac who attaches so easily to others! This song says it best, “Wise men say only fools rush in but I can’t help falling in love with you.” Cancers are sappy and commitment focused. They don’t easily let go of people either. They are very nurturing to others and seek fulfillment through the love they give. You can count on them to be there for you and help you. Their life lesson is to not fall in love too quickly. Just as the song says, “Take my hand, take my whole life too,” they have to be sure not to give too much of themselves to others.
Leo – Flashing Lights by Kanye West
This one line says it all, “As you recall, you know I love to show off but you never thought I would take it this far.” Leo loves to be in the limelight and show off. Sometimes it helps them become successful and take on leadership roles and sometimes it shoots them in the foot because people get sick of their arrogance. Their confidence can be used to do great things though, because all communities need leaders and if Leo can get their ego in check and not need to be showing off all the time, they can use their fire sign power to make big changes that help the world.
Virgo – So Fresh, So Clean by Outkast
The sign that loves to clean is definitely Virgo. Just as this fun song says, “Ain’t nobody dope as me, I’m just so fresh and clean,” this will help you understand a Virgo’s need for cleanliness and order both in their house and in their schedule. They are the sign that needs a plan to feel satisfied and don’t worry – they will always make one. They are extremely nurturing to others and will often help others clean or plan to share the clarity that comes from neatness and lack of clutter. They can get obsessive, so you can help remind them things don’t need to be perfect.
Libra – Get Up, Stand Up by Bob Marley
Libra is an intellectual sign all about human rights, justice and equality. They will work to make sure people are treated fairly and as the song says, “Get up stand up, stand up for your rights, don’t give up the fight.” They want to help free people’s minds from feelings like they can’t get along with others and will always try to resolve issues or riffs because they want people to get along. They are often involved in political activism and want to discuss what’s right.
This air sign is a natural debater, and they’re also very happy go lucky and loving, like the vibes you get from a reggae song.
Scorpio – Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye
This sign is all about embracing sexuality and creating deep emotional bonds with people that go beyond the surface. The song is the epitome of a Scorpio, which always has stronger sexual energy than the other signs. To understand a Scorpio, you can’t deny this part of them and it’s something they need just like the song say,s “Sexual healing is something that’s good for me.” They can be helpful for those who are shy and needing someone to encourage them to embrace their own sexuality.
Scorpios can handle intensity and darker subjects don’t scare them. They are our societal sexual healers and can handle high stress jobs others don’t want to deal with like law enforcement and law and they love digging into the unknown of the human psyche.
Sagittarius – Anywhere by Passenger
The love of nature, adventure and travelling that a Sagittarius always has is depicted perfectly in this song. The song captures their need to explore when it says, “If you get out on the ocean, if you sail out on the sea, if you get up in the mountains, if you go climbing on trees,” and “If you get up in a jet plane, or down in a submarine, if you get onto the next train to somewhere you’ve never been.” A Sagittarius needs new experiences and new places to feel satisfied and they learn about people by seeing this variety.
They are wise because they expose themselves to so much and have an open mind and fearless spirit which helps heal our society through their elevated and highly positive outlook.
Capricorn – Work by Rihanna
Ah the hardest working sign of the zodiac! This earth sign is grounded, sticks to their long term goals and always has money on the mind. This song can help you understand Capricorn best because it captures how they need to work and create stability for themselves to feel satisfied. They are also very loving, although slow to open up to people because they want to calculate how trustworthy the other person is. The song’s lyrics will ring in your head when you see how a Capricorn loves to work when you meet them.
With them it’s like Rihanna says, “Work, work, work, work, work, work.” To balance they need to take time to play and relax.
