How Music and Astrology Link

What astrology can tell you about artists and your music taste.


Our zodiac signs can tell us a lot about ourselves, who we are compatible with, how we react to things and even our interests. When looking into how astrology effects our tastes in music, there is a lot to be found. Astrologers have even found connections between our signs and ancient modes in music. 

So, what does this say about the genres we are drawn to? It has been shown the fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are more drawn to energetic and upbeat music. Whereas water signs are more drawn to music with a deeper meaning. This could be because water signs tend to be more in touch with their emotions. 

This isn't only shown in us as listeners, but these trends are also found within the artists. Some famous fire signs include Niki Minaj, Lady Gaga and Elton John, some of the most fast paced and bold artists today. According to the astrologer Annabel G air signs are all about communication and this is shown in music with some of the most famous air sign musicians being Eminem, Prince and Bob Dylan, all known for their lyrics. Even John Lennon and Paul McCartney both fall into the air sign category.  

Earth signs tend to be drawn to nature and natural things, this could be why they go for a more natural sound in music, music that is free from too much mixing and autotune. Adele and Amy Winehouse are great examples of Earth's signs owning that organic sound. 

So next time you find yourself discussing music, see how your own sign ties in with the music you listen to. That artist you have on repeat could be a favorite because of your zodiac sign.
