Fashion Horoscopes: The Signs as Musical Frontwomen
Are you Janis, Beyoncé, or Whitney?
Aries: Diana Ross - The Supremes
An Aries is always the leader of the pack, and there was no doubt that Diana Ross was That Bitch in the Supremes from the start. She was a firecracker and a born diva destined to go solo from the moment the music industry took notice of her. Dreamgirls as fuck!! The whole gang draped in gold for their final TV performance? Honey, it’s a fire sign!
Taurus: Cher - Sonny & Cher
Taurus is a Venus-ruled romantic, and they like a buddy! But still…Cher was totally the main hottie of Sonny & Cher, her duo with her husband at the time, Sonny Bono. Like a true Taurus, she has opinions out the ass that she is VERY vocal about on Twitter to this day! Taureans are also very conscious of aesthetics and beauty, and I’ll just say: Kim K dressed up as her for Halloween this year.
Gemini: Stevie Nicks - Fleetwood Mac
Geminis stan a messy queen! Over the course of her time in Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks dated and broke up with her bandmate Lindsey Buckingham, only to go solo and date the producer of her album Bella Donna, Jimmy Iovine! At the height of her fame, she experienced an almost cult-like popularity, and went on to work with top talent, including Tom Petty. Geminis can’t help but dabble in everything they’re interested in, and now she’s chilling on American Horror Story! Creative heartbreaker? Issa Gemini.
Cancer: Courtney Love - Hole
As one of the most romantic signs in the zodiac, it’s no wonder that Cancerian Courtney Love’s love life was on constant display and the subject of far more media speculation than her private sign would’ve liked (ahem, see: Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez???). Cancers are also known as the sign of the crab and have a strong protective streak! Love was known for being very forward about the causes dear to her heart, regularly performing at benefits for the LGBTQ community, AIDS research, mental health initiatives, and sexual assault victims. She’s a true badass and a true Cancerian.
Leo: Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston was, of course, one of the most talented singers to walk this planet, but she was also known for her hilarious interviews and sparkling personality. Like a true Leo, she refused to be number two, so when Mariah Carey rose to fame, there was obvious (and amazing!!) beef. Leos rule the house of fun and pleasure, but they’re also known for asserting themselves when they need to, and the combination led to some incredible one liners. People can’t help but love a Leo, and even after her death, she remains one of the most beloved icons in music history.
Virgo: Beyoncé - Destiny’s Child
Beyoncé is the definition of a Virgo, with her obsession with perfection, critical eye, and absolute attention to detail. Virgos are known for being workaholics, and she committed her life to music starting in her childhood! If there’s anything a Virgo hates, it’s an incompetent subordinate. So, like, bye Farrah! Wake up? Flawless. Just kidding—wake up and bust your ass for your entire life.
Libra: Gwen Stefani - No Doubt
As Venusians, Libras are known for their love of all things lovely and beautiful in this world. Gwen Stefani is a fashion designer and a red lipstick addict with a perfume line and so much more! They’re also known for not being able to make up their minds (see: Gwen’s style transformation over the years). As the sign of the scales, they’re marked by a sense of fairness, tact, and good judgment. Um, anyone ever heard of The Voice?? Libras can also be very conflict avoidant: don’t speak unless you’re going to be nice to me! Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts!
Scorpio: Kathleen Hanna - Bikini Kill
Kathleen Hanna has got some things to say. Scorpios don’t shy from letting you know what they think of you, whether that’s on stage, in badass interviews, or with a simple stare that lets you know that you are scum. As one of the OG riot grrls, she had no fear of rocking the boat or speaking her mind—ultimate Scorpio behavior.
Sagittarius: Tina Turner
Sagittarius is a fire sign known for its bursting energy and a natural optimism, and Tina Turner embodies this joyful attitude in her stage presence. Sagittarius is also recognized for their strong independent streak! They’re self-reliant people with an occasional fear of being tied down. What’s love got to do with it? Psh, secondhand emotion.
Capricorn: Janis Joplin
Janis Joplin started out as the lead singer of a psych rock band, but that alpha-ass cardinal quality took over pretty quickly and she went solo! Capricorns don’t enjoy answering to other people’s vision. Her easy command of the audience brought in fans as people fell in love with her bluesy vocals and amazing wails. You will listen to a Capricorn!!
Aquarius: Alicia Keys
The water bearer reveals the truth! Alicia Keys has always written soul-bearing music, and aired her opinion both lyrically and offstage. Aquarians are opinionated, individualistic people, and in the modern age, Alicia stands out amidst pop stars. Doesn’t give a shit about makeup. Master of piano = independent Aquarius who doesn’t need you to write her music.
Pisces: Karen Carpenter - The Carpenters
Pisces is a sweet, creative sign that is both soft-hearted and soft-spoken. As the lead singer of the Carpenters, Karen Carpenter brought a natural sensitivity to the group through her gentle, often swaying presence. Pisces can be very shy, and Karen had begun her career as the drummer of the band. She shied away from the limelight, but her beautiful voice and inherent lovability drew people to her. Trademark Pisces!
