Aries (March 21–April 19): "The Great War"
Forthright and aggressive, Aries will connect with "The Great War." Ruled by the warring planet, Mars, Aries tends to enter love as if it were a battlefield. Armed and ready for battle, Aries almost immediately assumes a more tense position, as if a relationship can not be noteworthy or interesting if there is no conflict. As an Aries reflects on these intense moments of peril, they'll recall Swift's lyrics, "Flashes of the battle come back to me in a blur." But in true Martian fashion, Aries will realize how much they want and need their lover as Swift sings, "I vowed I would always be yours / 'Cause we survived the great war."
Taurus (April 20–May 20): "Bejeweled"
How do you know when a Taurus has had enough in a relationship or with a lover? "Bejeweled" perfectly captures Taurus's mindset when they're still in love but done being mistreated by a romantic partner. You'll know when Taurus has reached a limit when they start singing the line "Familiarity breeds contempt" a little too passionately. Taurus is a dedicated lover who prefers a peaceful and patient relationship. However, they'll expect that devotion in return and will remind their lover if necessary. After all, the line "best believe I'm still bejeweled" is all a Taurus needs to sing for their lover to remember how amazing they have it with them.
Gemini (May 21–June 20): "Question…?"
Curious and quick-witted, a Gemini likes to keep the conversation rolling due to their Mercurial nature. Thanks to a desire to know as much as possible about their lover, they will inevitably have a "Question…?" or two. Almost every conversation with Gemini will start with "Can I ask you a question?" which will undoubtedly lead to a few follow-up inquiries to get to know their partner better. Whether it's as simple as "Do you wish you could still touch her?" or as complex as "Did you wish you'd put up more of a fight?" Gemini will always defend their curiosity about past relationships with "It's just a question."
Cancer (June 21–July 22): "Bigger Than the Whole Sky"
Knowing how sweet and watery Cancer is, this zodiac sign probably needs a new sad song to spill some tears over. "Bigger Than the Whole Sky" will hit Cancer right in the feels, so they should probably buckle down with some tissues and a cozy blanket on an overcast day while listening to this song on repeat. Tender, sentimental, and nostalgic, Swift's "Bigger Than the Whole Sky" commemorates the end of a relationship that wasn't meant to be. So if a Cancer has a lost love on their mind, then the lyrics "You were more than just a short time / And I've got a lot to pine about" will surely set off waterworks.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22): "Labyrinth"
Complete with a sunny disposition, Leo is arguably the most positive zodiac sign. Although they exude a confident, optimistic persona, they might still be a little afraid of falling in love again deep down inside. "Labyrinth" is an excellent pick for Leo since it reminds them that a past heartbreak is something where "it only hurts this much right now." Although a Leo might get "lost in the labyrinth of my mind," they may find that this song is the right reminder that there is potential to embrace love again. As scary as it is to let one's walls down and be vulnerable, Leo's self-assuredness and can-do attitude match the cautious, yet anticipatory, chorus of "Labyrinth."
Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22): "Sweet Nothing"
As a hardworking earth sign, Virgos will stop at nothing to perfect a relationship. Usually, they take on quite a bit to appease everyone, especially a lover. A Virgo will always try to ensure that they're giving a relationship as much time, energy, and effort as possible. Despite Virgo's best efforts, Virgo will always fall victim to their own critical mindset. "Sweet Nothing" is the best song to remind a Virgo that, sometimes, all their lover wants and needs is "sweet nothing." The line "and the voices that implore, 'You should be doing more'" might be just what they truly need to hear.
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22): "Snow on the Beach (feat. Lana Del Ray)"
Ruled by the love goddess, Venus, Libra is often associated with romance, commitment, and relationships. Although Libra is an intelligent, logical air sign, Libra's Venusian influence still allows this rational zodiac sign to have hope in love. "Snow on the Beach (feat. Lana Del Ray)" perfectly captures a Libra's slight disbelief and desire to believe in the impossible with their love life. Like a balancing act, a Libra knows that impossible love is possible when it feels like "flying in a dream." There are moments in a Libra's love life where "tonight feels impossible," especially when a Libra and their lover share a connection that feels like "snow at the beach / Weird, but f*cking beautiful."
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21): "Vigilante Sh*t"
Known as one of the most intense lovers in the zodiac, Scorpios tend to struggle with the betrayal, deception, and pain that may come with a love affair. Although a Scorpio desires immense intimacy with a partner, sometimes the lines are blurred. More often than not, this will lead Scorpios to become involved in a romantic entanglement. "Vigilante Sh*t" was practically written as Scorpio's go-to anthem for them to play on repeat after being double-crossed by a former flame. After all, plotting to get back at an ex-lover and "dressin' for revenge" is the usual protocol for a scorned Scorpio. So don't be surprised if they take Swift's "Don't get sad, get even" line literally.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21): "Paris"
Leave it to a fiery Sagittarius to tell it like it is — which is perfectly described by Swift's direct yet positive lyrics in "Paris." If any zodiac sign will get a kick out of the lyrics "some wannabe Z-lister / And all the outfits were terrible / 2003, unbearable," it will undoubtedly be a Sagittarius. Once they're hooked by the blunt humor and joyful memories embedded in "Paris," a Sagittarius might recall their adventures and romantic relationships from past trips abroad. By the time they're done listening to this song, they might already be booking their next trip to Paris.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): "Karma"
Just like Swift, a Capricorn is no stranger to feeling the heat of criticism, unsolicited opinions, and more. Since Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, it is tasked with overcoming an arduous journey with plenty of obstacles while working toward becoming successful. That's why "Karma" is the perfect song for when a Capricorn wants to reflect on their journey thus far. Even though Capricorn is a fairly stoic zodiac sign, they might shed a tear when the lyrics "ask me what I learned from all of those years / Ask me what I earned from all those tears" hits a little too close to home.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18): "Glitch"
One of the hardest zodiac signs to win over is undoubtedly Aquarius. However, this sign is worth waiting for since they are a lover and best friend wrapped in one . . . but only after you get through their cool detachment and aloofness! When an Aquarius is in love, they might literally feel like a "Glitch." Swift sings, "We were supposed to be just friends," which perfectly captures an Aquarius's initial intentions and mindset as a friendship begins to become more. Aquarius typically sees a love interest purely as a friend at first because they are usually more reserved instead of forthright in pursuing love (like when Swift sings, "I thought we had no chance/And that's romance, let's dance"). But once an Aquarius opens up, they won't regret doing so!
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20): "Lavender Haze"
Sweet and dreamy Pisces is the ultimate romantic in the zodiac. Ruled by Jupiter and Neptune, a Pisces tends to see and believe in the very best when in love. As a true romantic at heart, Pisces may struggle to see the reality behind the fantasy, which is why "Lavender Haze" seems to be practically written for a Pisces! Just like the lyrics "I feel the lavender haze creeping up on me / Surreal," Pisces usually lean into a more idealistic, whimsical view of their relationship and lover. After all, Pisces typically "just wanna stay in that lavender haze" instead of dealing with whatever people are saying.
