the planets are moving
things are in retrograde
changes are upon us
time to open up and reflect, review, reorganize
The Radio Dept. - “Peace of Mind“
I don’t really know shit about astrology. All I know is I’m a goddamn Libra and I feel this song on a personal level. It’s romantic, but in a very detached and aloof kind of way. The song’s lyrics long for peace and harmony, for both the singer and his former boo. A desire for balance in a situation fraught with difficulty. So I represent the Libras in claiming this song for us.
Frank Ocean - “Pink Matter”
In “Pink Matter” prized scorpio Frank Ocean explores quintessential scorpio themes like the nature of consciousness, the cosmos, isolation, life, death, sex, and pleasure. A truly metaphysical anthem, Pink Matter dives deep, reminding scorpios everywhere that they are not alone in their existential dread.
Songs: Ohia - “Hold on Magnolia”
my sign: pisces (pisces moon, cancer rising)
i’m a pisces, and i’m a mess. big surprise. sue me. i really had a huge phase in high school when i worshipped jason molina, and this song always fucked me up best. just for reference, i have seriously considered naming one of my kids magnolia because of this song, which is messed up. it’s as beautiful as it is sad, and it’s So Sad.
-Manny Unger (pisces sun, pisces moon, cancer rising)
King Princess - “Pussy Is God”
"I think star signs mean nothing / But I know you feel right so I'm coming"
When you add your crush on Co - Star and find out you're not astrologically compatible, does that stop you from making a fool of yourself every time you see them in Usdan? Nope.
-Allison Hsu (taurus sun, gemini moon, aries rising)
Girlpool - “Plants and Worms”
yea i'm a taurus yea i'm grounded and stubborn and whateva
-Amy Geiger (taurus sun, aquarius moon, capricorn rising)
New Order - “True Faith”
"A sudden sense of liberty
I don't care 'cause I'm not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much"
The complexities of being a Gemini...
I've faced slander, mind games, and much more from my years of being a Gemini; this song represents the confusion and pain this experience has brought me.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - “Dragon Queen”
I was born in year of the dragon so I wear a dragon medallion at all times. I am the Dragon Queen.
Soccer Mommy - “Scorpio Rising”
I listened to this song a lot when I was driving this summer. As someone who just recently got into astrology, I only thought about my star sign in terms of Libra bingo memes, so I was I was pretty psyched to find out that Scorpio is my rising sign, too.
-Aurora McGuckin (libra sun, taurus moon, scorpio rising)
Solange - “Cranes in the Sky”
My track for being a Virgo is Cranes in the Sky by Solange. This is a gut instinct, I am a Virgo. When I am blissful, this song is how I feel inside.
DJ LUCAS “THE YOUNG MR. CLEAN” - “The Goat ft GODS WISDOM prod ESKAY”
I’m a Capricorn so I’m the GOAT.
-Nathan Baron Silvern
Marina and the Diamonds - “Primadonna”
Marina and the Diamonds is a formative artist for many adolescent Tumblr girls. Electra Heart details the rise and fall of youth, dripping in sex, pain, and crystalline artifice. Naturally, Primadonna is the perfect anthem for the Leo in your life. With lyrics like “I know I’ve got a big ego / I really don’t know why it’s such a big deal though,” this track is an ode to self-obsession and shameless vanity. As every Leo knows, others may love you (and they should), but not as much as you love yourself.
