Maisie Peters, singer of standard songs “Villain” and “Blonde,” has her Moon positioned in Pisces, which is mirrored within the sentimentality of her artwork.
After I be taught the start charts of individuals I already know nicely, I’m by no means stunned. I simply, and probably problematically, lump them into classes. My get together animal pals have Sagittarius risings, and my bold and pushed pals have Aries Moons. After I click on with somebody immediately they virtually at all times have a Taurus placement, because it’s my Scorpio Solar’s complementary signal and a match to my Taurus Moon.
Thus, discovering out the astrology placements of my favourite music artists isn’t any totally different. Music is the final word gateway right into a parasocial relationship. I’ve by no means had a dialog with Taylor Swift, however by means of her discography alone, I do know (most likely an excessive amount of) about her deepest insecurities, familial relationships and romantic woes. With 10 albums (12 together with her re-records), Swifties have a fairly good grasp on many elements of her life.
So after I did a deep dive into Swift’s chart and the charts of my different high Spotify artists of 2022, I wasn’t in any respect stunned by what I discovered.
Whereas I may write an entire column by itself about Swift’s astrology, “Run” off of 2021’s “Purple (Taylor’s Model)” completely encapsulates her Sagittarius Solar. Sagittarians are identified for his or her spontaneity and need to journey as a method of escaping their present state of affairs: “And run, / such as you’d run from the legislation / Darling, let’s run / Run from all of it / We are able to go like they’re attempting to chase us / Go the place nobody else is / run,” Swift and featured artist Ed Sheeran sing.
Swift’s Scorpio rising allowed her to tug off the edgy, rebellious vitality of her Popularity period flawlessly. It’s sort of metaphorical, being that your rising signal is usually individuals’s first impression of you. Characterised by the intimidating, mysterious scorpion, in fact individuals would assume she was within the improper throughout the entire Kimye fiasco.
The location that made probably the most sense to me after studying her chart was her Capricorn Mercury. As Earth indicators, Capricorns are methodical, grounded and hardworking. This placement comes by means of in what she dubs her “fountain pen” lyrics. Bridges that really feel extra like prose in her 2020 launch “evermore” come to thoughts, similar to within the album’s title monitor: “And I used to be catching my breath / Barefoot within the wildest winter / Catching my dying / And I couldn’t be certain / I had a sense so peculiar / That this ache could be for / Evermore.”
It’s extraordinarily typical of an Earth signal to put in writing a complete album about their hometown. Kahan’s junior album “Stick Season,” launched Oct. 2022, pays homage to his birthplace of Strafford, Vermont. Having heavy Earth placements in his Capricorn Solar, Capricorn Mercury and Virgo Mars, he captures the aspect’s groundedness and stability by exploring his resentment for having these feelings. In his track “Homesick,” he turns the favored time period on its head by explaining that he’s sick of residence as an alternative of sick for residence. In “Rising Sideways,” he explains that he’s giving into his despair and is solely going by means of the motions of his day-to-day life, one thing he resents his dad and mom for passing onto him. “However I ignore issues, and I transfer sideways / until I overlook what I felt within the first place / on the finish of the day I do know there are worse methods to remain alive,” he sings.
One of many bizarre issues about studying the astrology of artists after their music is that you could make sense of the extra emotion-based placements earlier than others. When assembly individuals in particular person, their rising signal may be instantly obvious, whereas their Moon signal might take extra time to determine. With Kahan, his Earth placements had been extremely clear to me, however I might have by no means identified he has an Aries rising from the contents of his music. Having seen him dwell, nevertheless, Kahan’s rising comes by means of along with his surprising fiery persona.
With all of her Gemini placements, it is smart that Peters is the queen of unhinged. In her “Psycho” music video, she assembles a military of her dishonest boyfriend’s exes and present girlfriends to decorate precisely like her and get again at him. Whole Gemini habits.
After dying her hair from brown to platinum blonde, she launched a track about it, fittingly titled “Blonde.” “Kinda like your worst nightmare however double / Is that an angel? No, it’s your ex / Keep in mind the way you screwed up after I was a brunette? / I don’t assume you knew simply what you’d achieved / Woah, I’ll fuck your life up as a blonde,” Peters sings. Each the lyrics and music are confidently chaotic, the trademark of any Gemini.
Her Pisces Moon, nevertheless, reveals her inventive and mawkish aspect. In one among her first singles, “Greatest I’ll Ever Sing,” she compares her previous relationship to her songwriting portfolio: “Perhaps we introduced out the worst in one another / 1,000,000 full stops on our pores and skin / However child the songs that I wrote as your different / Are the perfect I’ll ever sing.” Though most of her latest songs have been extra like “Blonde,” she isn’t afraid to point out her Pisces Moon every so often.
McAlpine’s skill to explain her daydreams in such element that it convinces the listener of its actuality is such a Libra Mercury high quality. Significantly within the track “ceilings” off of her sophomore album “5 seconds flat,” she describes a wonderful and easy romance with strains like, “Beautiful to be sitting right here with you” and “it looks like the beginning of a film I’ve seen earlier than.” Then, on the climax of the monitor, she hits the listener with, “however it’s not actual / and also you don’t exist / and I can’t recall the final time I used to be kissed.” Libra Mercuries, specifically, are superb at recognizing and speaking all sides of a state of affairs, one thing McAlpine does effortlessly in a lot of her songs.
“Means One thing” off of her debut album “Give Me a Minute” combines McAlpine’s daydreaming tendencies along with her observant Aquarius Moon. All through the track, she mentions numerous “indicators” she sees that she takes to imply her and the particular person she’s singing about needs to be collectively. One thing so simple as seeing their identify on a avenue signal or (fittingly) their zodiac signal being a Leo means they’re destined to be collectively.
