Aries: March 21st-April 19th
“You Need To Calm Down”
“You are somebody that we don’t know/but you’re coming at my friends like a missle/…you need to calm down/you’re being too loud.”
You’re not only unafraid to stand up for yourself, but you will absolutely stand up for your friends as well. Taylor uses this track to send a message to haters that instead of trying to be rude and oppressive, that they should just…calm down. You have a reputation for being loud and a bit over-the-top at times, but you do so in a way that people tend to admire and want to get behind. You have a natural talent for being a leader, and if there is a cause that needs rallying, you’re who most would turn to in order to draw serious attention. Besides, it’s only natural that an Aries would deliver shade in such a matter-of-fact way, am I right?
Taurus: April 20th-May 20th
“I like shiny things, but I’d marry you with paper rings/darling, you’re the one I want.”
You may come off a little reserved to people at first, but once you’ve fallen in love with someone then you’re all in. Taylor describes a love in this song that describes an initial back and forth romance that blossoms into full-on love and devotion- and a clear message that she wants to spend her life with this person, regardless of whether there are theatrics involved. You understand this feeling well- you aren’t afraid to make a commitment once you’re invested, and you’re not subtle about it. Though you aren’t opposed to making a big deal about your love, you also make it known that to you it matters more about being with the person you’ve been waiting for rather than flashy concepts that are only temporary.
Gemini: May 21st-June 20th
“I Think He Knows”
“He’s got my heartbeat/skipping down 16th avenue/…wanna see what’s under that attitude/…he’s so obsessed with me and boy I understand”
You’re a complex and excitable person- you’re drawn to interesting people who keep you engaged. A song that details being with a person who not only has mysterious vibes but who also makes you feel some type of way is right up your avenue. While you may not always show all of your cards regarding whether you’re into someone, you also aren’t subtle when you’re crushing hard. You enjoy experiencing the thrill of new feelings and crushes, and truly for you, the beginnings of romantic encounters are the most intriguing.
Cancer: June 21st-July 22nd
“My heart’s been borrowed and yours has been blue/all’s well that ends well to end up with you/swear to be overdramatic and true/to my lover.”
A Cancer? Completely head over heels in love with someone, enough to call them “lover”? Daydreaming about getting married/spending forever with that person? I know, terribly shocking. Truthfully though, this love song hits you right in the heart and encompasses that feeling of just knowing you’ve found an incredible, worthwhile love. While you may get a bit of a rep for being in love with love, you know it’s worth taking that risk when you can find a love like this.
Leo: July 23rd-August 22nd
“I’m the only one of me/baby that’s the fun of me/you’re the only one of you/baby that’s the fun of you/and I promise that nobody’s gonna love you like me!”
Okay listen, you can’t fight me on this. You know that you’re self-aware and have self-confidence that rockets through the roof. You aren’t one to settle for anything less than you know you deserve, and you aren’t afraid to admit that. Yet you’re not just about celebrating your own traits that make you who you are- you celebrate and admire your partner’s traits, too. So an entire song that celebrates two people unashamedly loving themselves and recognizing the great qualities in the other person, too? It’s hard to find a better summation for a Leo love story.
Virgo: August 23rd-September 22nd
“Who could ever leave me, darling/but who could stay?/Dark side, I search for your dark side/but maybe I’m alright, right here”
You have a tough time not being hard on yourself on and others- no one realizes this more than you do. You take a long time to open up to others and truly let your emotions out, usually due to a fear that it’s not worth the risk. “The Archer” does a great job painting a portrait of a person who has invested their heart in a person, but still deals with serious hesitancy on completely relaxing in that feeling. Though you might be afraid that you or the other person might do something to mess up the relationship, you do have a strong desire to want to make things work and you crave that feeling of security that being in love brings.
Libra: September 23rd-October 22nd
“Death By A Thousand Cuts”
“I dress to kill my time/I take the long way home/…I get drunk but it’s not enough/cause you’re not my baby”
When you’re in a relationship, you’re swept up in all sorts of feelings- yet if that relationship ends, it’s incredibly painful for you to accept. Though you might distract yourself or even try to quickly move on to a new relationship, your feelings and memories still take some serious time to fade. When you are with someone you give so much of yourself to them that and trying to deal with the reality that it’s over can feel physically painful.
Scorpio: October 23rd-November 21st
“And you can’t talk to me when I’m like this/dare you to leave me just to try and scare you/even if it’s a false god/we’d still worship this love.”
Okay, yes, it’s not at all surprising that the most sensual song on the album would radiate some serious Scorpio energy. You’re a passionate, intense person and you have a reputation of diving headfirst with people despite that it will likely be temporary. Even the opening lines “We were crazy to think, crazy to think this could work/remember when I said I’d die for you?” set the stage for a person who isn’t afraid to jump right in and ignore all the red flags that are right in front of them. Nonetheless, you won’t regret taking the chance- even if it doesn’t turn out to be what you planned, you’ll still remember the memory and love it for what it was.
Sagittarius: November 22nd-December 21st
“I Forgot That You Existed”
“I forgot that you existed/it isn’t love, it isn’t hate/it’s just indifference”
Is there anything more Sagittarius than responding to an ex with the basic fact that you don’t even remember them anymore? No, no there isn’t. It’s not that you never had feelings for the person, but once you’ve moved on from a relationship you don’t waste time dwelling on the past. You are ready to throw yourself back out into the world and explore whatever comes next- and there just isn’t room left to be pining over your past love.
Capricorn: December 22nd-January 19th
“I’m so sick of running as fast as I can/wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man/”
A song that legitimately questions how much more they would achieve/how they would be perceived under different circumstances screams Capricorn in bold letters. Taylor takes some time to contemplate the reality that despite how successful and hard-working she’s been in her career, she knows that if she were a man she would be praised and perhaps more even more successful than she’s been. You work hard for the things you want, and you simply want what is fair- and something in you becomes incredibly frustrated at the concept that you aren’t being treated the way you should based on something other than you’re strong work ethic.
Aquarius: January 20th-February 18th
“Miss Americana and The Heartbreak Prince”
“American stories burning before me/I’m feeling helpless, the damsels are distressed/boys will be boys, then/where are the wise men?”
A song that sounds like a love song, but actually is a metaphor filled tune regarding politics and inequality in the world? Come ON, Aquarius. Throughout the song, Taylor makes comments regarding the beginnings of her career, her hesitancy to speak out on her political views, and the discovery of finding her voice and choosing to use it to promote equality rather than remaining silent. As someone who relates to fighting for social justice causes, championing those who need it, and being unafraid to speak your mind, this song resonates well with you. Even on a more surface level, the song also speaks of wanting someone to be there for you and understand who you are despite all the chaos and conflict around you, which is something you desire from a romantic partner.
Pisces: February 19th-March 20th
“I hope I never lose you, I hope it never ends/I’d never walk Cornelia Street again/that’s the kind of heartbreak time could never mend”
You know that you feel everything in such a big way, and you commit every detail to memory. In “Cornelia Street”, Taylor recalls the beginnings of a current relationship, but also the fear of it ending, knowing she would never be able to walk down that street again due to the pain it would bring. You can relate, given how sometimes you have moments of worry that the person you love is going to walk away, and with how much you invest your heart into relationships, you know the aftermath wouldn’t be easy to deal with. You also tend to jump ahead and think about what might happen, rather than fully enjoying what is actually happening in the moment. The whole song is incredibly romantic with a dose of melancholy, which let’s be honest, suits you pretty well.
