In celebration of the Eras Tour launching yesterday, we thought we would assign every horoscope sign a Taylor Swift album (or EP). Let’s dive into all of the Taylor Swift albums as zodiac signs! Which one are you based on the stars? Let’s find out!
Aries are determined and often have a strong desire to prove themselves and their strength. Just like that, Taylor Swift was determinded to prove herself (and her songwriting skills) with her album Speak Now. Speak Now is sassy, just like you, with song like Mean, Better Than Revenge and The Story Of Us. It also is the first album Swift wrote entirely on her own, after critics claimed she wasn’t a good songwriter. Sounds like something you would do to prove a point? Yeah.
Taylor Swift Holiday Collection
OK – hold on. You’re probably like “the Christmas album, why?” And I have an answer for you! Taurus people are some of the most relaxed and caring people I have ever met. Being an earth sign, people who are a Taurus are grounded, hardworking and always do a great job at bringing you back home. They are dependable, and you know that every time you come back to them – it will feel like no time has passed at all. Just like Christmas!
Beautiful Eyes EP
Geminis are playful, curious and social butterflies. How does this relate to Swift’s first ever piece of work? Before she put out her debut album, Swift came out with her EP Beautiful Eyes. This EP has a few of the same songs as her first album, but a few others that are so much fun. Fans have been illegally downloading I Heart ? and Beautiful Eyes onto their iPods for years and searching for the EP at thrift stores – this album is a rare find. Just like a Gemini.
Cancer’s get a really bad rap for being overly emotional and sensitive. Instead, Cancers are some of the most emotionally intelligent people because they are so in tune and understand their heavy emotions deeply. If Taylor Swift has one album that reflect the Cancer mindset – it’s Evermore. With gut-wrenching songs like Happiness, Tolerate It and Right Where You Left Me, cancers will feel right at home. Though Cancers are often reflective and give great advice (like I said, so emotionally intelligent), which is shown in songs like Dorothea and It’s Time To Go.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version)
There’s an obvious reason that Leo’s are Fearless, and that is because they ARE fearless. If you have ever met a Leo, you know there is nothing they wouldn’t do to help their friends or family. They are the Gryffindor of the zodiac, much like this album. Beyond that, though, they are natural leaders, like Swift’s album Fearless. This album, with huge career-altering hits like You Belong With Me and Love Story is so powerful – just like Leos.
You can’t even argue with this one – just listen to the last track Mastermind and you’ll agree. Virgos are calculated, witty and logical. They are insanely passionate and can always get their way. Just like Swift, when she released her newest album Midnights. This album was a passion project and you can tell that Swift has decided that she’s going to do whatever she wants and make whatever music she wants to make. And even so, this album broke so many records – because while it’s what she wanted, it’s also something her fans ate up. Virgos are just like that, always on top of it, and always winning.
Libras, as the scale symbolizes, crave equality and equilibrium. Just like reputation craves balancing the scale and getting revenge. Taylor Swift cashes in on Karma in this album – and there’s not a single Libra I have ever known who doesn’t love revenge. Holding grudges is your past time and you often present yourself as harsher than you truly are. Reputation is all about balance. Because while there is Look What You Made Me Do, I Did Something Bad and other hardcore tracks on this album, there are also tracks like Gorgeous, Call It What You Want and Delicate. Libras have a secret soft side – and they really are some of the kindest people out there.
Red (Taylor’s Version)
Out of all of the zodiac signs, Scorpios are the sign that are burning red. While some people might mistake Scorpios as being the reputation album, they couldn’t be more wrong. Scorpios are passionate, devoted, and vibrant – but they are surprisingly a water sign. Which means that while Scorpios can be scary and fierce, they can also be deeply emotional (in the most intense ways). Out of all of Taylor Swift’s breakup songs, we all have to agree that All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) is obviously the most intensely emotional song she’s ever written. With ten entire minutes of beautiful torture – there’s nothing in this world that is more Scorpio.
Those with the Sagittarius star sign are well-known for being risk takers, adventurers and effortlessly magnetic. Taylor Swift’s Folklore album was one of the biggest surprises… like, ever. While Swift hadn’t put out any music since Lover and the beginning of the pandemic, Folklore came out of nowhere and was yet another genre swap for the musician. She wanted to try something new and take a risk – one that was so effortlessly magnetic that it won over everyone. Those who vowed to never listen to Swift’s music suddenly became fans and Folklore changed her entire career. Sagittarius’s are life-changing and are never afraid to try something new.
Capricorns are over-achievers, and are one of the most practical star signs. They are known to be hardworking, ambitious and ambitious. If any of the Taylor Swift eras were a Capricorn, it would be her 1989 era. While this was another one of her genre swaps, Swift leaned heavily into the pop world and this album turned her into the worldwide pop star that she still is today. This album was the first that landed her with international popularity and so many radio hits – like Shake It Off, Blank Space and Wildest Dreams. Capricorns are just like 1989 because they are successful, smart and have a unique balance of talent and wit.
Aquarius are some of the most creative people in the world – they are often drawn to bright colors, fun and happiness. They are outspoken, the life of the party and very friendly. Lover is the perfect era for the Aquarius because it is the album that has the most fun. Many of the songs on its album poke fun and are the most outspoken songs Swift has ever written (ME! has so much fun with the idea of being unique, You Need To Calm Down stands up to haters, The Man points out the gender inequality in Hollywood). While these songs and others like Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince have deeply political undertones, they are wrapped in cotton candy, pink puffy FUN! Just like the outspoken Aquarius.
Pisces go with the flow and are highly intuitive. They believe that life should be based off feeling – not thought. This is super reflected in Taylor Swift’s debut album. In songs like Invisible, A Place In This World and The Outside, Swift sings about a lot of different feelings on this album. Pisces are also well-known for their good ideas – much like this album, which was Swift’s start in the music industry. There’s also a lot of water imagery tied to this album, much like the classic Pisces fish.
