There are many reasons why music is so important to each and every one of us, but one of the main reasons is that we relate to it. Some songs just speak to us and give us words to what we’re feeling.

I’m sure you have a song right now that you can think of that is important to you, in one way or another.

Maybe you even have the lyrics of your favorite song or a quote by your favorite musician tattooed on your body, framed in your bedroom, or on your social media pages.

Clearly, music is huge; not just in your own life but around the world, too. Of course, we’re all different, so the music that touches you most might not really resonate with someone else.


Part of that is personal preference, but another part of it could have something to do with astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, the music genre that speaks to you the most is rock. Granted, you’ll listen to anything that’s catchy, but rock music is something you can really relate to. You especially like rock music that has a good beat behind is and lyrics that actually mean something – you can do without the songs that are popular just because of the repeat the same words over and over.


As a very active, upbeat zodiac sign, you need to listen to music that will keep your adrenaline up. Whether that means something you can listen to on your way to a boring meeting at work or when you’re at the gym, rock music is one of those genres that goes hard every time, just like you. You like that rock music is honest and a little bit crazy.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you like your music like you like everything else in life: classic. The classics are what get you through your day and keep your grounded when your schedule gets a little too hectic for your taste. Whatever “classic” means to you – classic rock, pop songs from your childhood, hip-hop tracks from way back when – that is what tends to fill your music library up the fastest.

You like the classics more than any other music genre because it reminds you of a better time. You sometimes find yourself reminiscing of the past and talking about how great it was when musicians were really about the music. Your soliloquies about the history of music might be a little much for some people, but you can’t help it! When you really like something, you want to share it with as many people as possible.


GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, you’ll listen to pretty much any kind of music, but your absolute favorite is music that you can really dance to. You have a lot of energy pent up inside of you and you need to get it out somehow! Music genres like electronic dance music (EDM) and techno might not be everyone’s cup of tea but really speak to you on a different level.

You also like when music can be a conversation starter – because you love teaching people new things about music. While it might be rare for there to be lyrics in techno and EDM, you can still share your knowledge on why the musicians used these sounds and not those, and even the science behind the upbeat songs. You consider music to be an important learning experience.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, you are a very sentimental and emotional zodiac sign, so it makes sense that you would most relate to a music genre that is all about giving you feels when you listen to it. Genres like the blues and R&B speak to you the most because they are so full of soul and feeling that you’d be crazy not to get goosebumps when listening to these genres.

You also like the fact that it’s not just the beats that are full of emotion – the lyrics are, too! Any song that has an actual story to tell tends to quickly become one of your favorites because you really feel like you’re living this musician’s life when listening to their songs. To you, music is about getting swept up in the magic of the song; really being a part of it all.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you’re a leader by heart, so it’s not uncommon for you to be attracted to other leaders, too – including chart-topping leaders of the music industry. You will listen to pretty much any genre and enjoy it, but your favorite is definitely the pop genre. You love songs that you can both sing to and shake your butt to, and you’ve always got the newest singles pumping in your earbuds.


For you, music is like the gift that keeps on giving. There’s always something new to rave about and you love that you can listen to a musician’s newest single and have the lyrics down by heart before the end of the week. You’re also the kind of zodiac sign to actually follow news on the musicians, rather than just the music. So, you’re really invested in the whole experience.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, as one of the most intelligent zodiac signs, you need music that will really get the wheels in your brain cranking. You don’t listen to music just to zone out; you listen to music to learn something new about yourself and the world. The music genre that tends to speak to you the most is classical music. You’re not too worried about listening to songs with lyrics, as long as the music is deep and meaningful enough.

You like both classic composers and newer musicians when it comes to classical music. You especially admire that newer artists tend to find inspiration in older composers because you always try to find inspiration in those who came before your time, too. Classical music is emotional stories that really make you feel something when you listen to them. And they can even bring you inspiration, too.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you are a very social creature, so you tend to relate best to music genres that give you the opportunity to incorporate your favorite songs into whatever you do. The music genre that speaks to you the most is country; there’s something about the catchy beats and meaningful lyrics that really touch you in a way other genres don’t.

You are also ruled by the planet Venus, which is the planet of love. And if any music genre is all about love – finding it, losing it, and believing in it – it’s country. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone in country music, so while you might not always stray from that one genre, you can still get your fill of songs within that category of music.


SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

As an emotional, intense, passionate zodiac sign, you need music that really speaks to your soul, Scorpio. Music itself is a big part of your life, but the genre that speaks to you the most is hip-hop and rap. A lot of people tend to dismiss these genres as not important because of how harsh the language can be, but you know that there’s a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to rap and hip-hop.

There’s a LOT of passion in the words of hip-hop and rap songs, and along with the strong beats that get stuck in your head, these are the genres that you can’t get enough of. To you, these songs are more like poems than just lyrics and a melody. You like the fact that there are more outlets for expressing your feelings than just talking about them, which you can relate to well with rappers and hip-hop artists.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, you love songs that make you want to get off your feet and dance. But the one thing you hate, in life and in music, is limiting yourself to only one kind of music. While you do tend to listen to a lot of different music genres, you especially like world music. World music is music from other countries besides your own. Listening to world music helps you open yourself up to many different cultures at once.


Whether you’re listening to songs from India, Latin America, or the Caribbean, you especially like this genre for the emotion and catchiness of the songs. You don’t have to understand the words to love world music as much as you love pop and rock. World music is about embracing other cultures and celebrating them.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, a sophisticated zodiac sign like you needs to listen to music that matches. The music genre that speaks to you the most is jazz because it’s sophisticated and intelligent. Jazz also doesn’t abide by any other rules like country or pop – and neither do you. You make your own rules in life and you only listen to yourself, which is kind of what jazz does, too. You can be sure that there’s nothing out there like jazz or you.


But that’s not the only way you relate to jazz. Jazz musicians put in a lot of hard work and dedication to perfect their craft – not everyone can be a pro at creating jazz music. And just like those musicians, you put in a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to achieve your own goals, no matter how hard it is to succeed. Jazz is more like a representation of you than just a music genre.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you’re another one of those zodiac signs who doesn’t follow anyone else’s rules but your own. You like living in your own independent, rebellious, free-spirited world. Sure, there may be times when you do feel like joining the crowd, but only on your own terms and only if you still get to inject yourself into whatever it is you’re doing.

Alternative music speaks to you the most because it reminds you of yourself. It might sound like another music genre and it might look like everyone else, but there’s still a lot of personality and originality that makes it one of a kind. But just because alternative music speaks to you the most, it’s certainly not the only genre that speaks to you. You like a little bit of everything, and the freedom to explore all music genres.


PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, you are the zodiac sign that has the deepest connection with music – more so than any other zodiac sign. For you, music is an escape from reality, into a magical dream world where anything can happen. You constantly have new favorite songs that you add to a never-ending playlist because each song makes you feel something different.

You are a very sensitive, feeling zodiac sign, so the music genre that you can relate best to is one that feeds those needs to get in touch with your emotions. The genre that speaks to you most is indie music. Anything that is a little bit different and can still cater to your need for deep music that not everyone will “get” is right up your alley. You like the complexity in lyrics and beats that indie music is all about.
