Astrology 101: What’s The ’90s Love Song For Your Sign?
Do you fall in love quickly, or do you try to be cautious with your feelings? Do you obsess over your crush for months before making your move? Do you tend to date people in your friend group? As you might imagine, each zodiac sign takes a vastly different approach to love and relationships. We could explain these differences in intricate detail, but, like so many things in life, we’ve found that it’s much easier to sum things up in a ’90s love song. From Garbage to the Spice Girls, read on to find out which romantic jam of the ’90s is the ultimate love anthem for your sign…
Aries (March 21st-April 19th): “Crazy For You” by Madonna. When an Aries falls for someone, it’s fast, strong, and fiery with passion. “Crazy for You” is the perfect expression of an Aries in love: “It’s all brand new, you’ll feel it in my kiss. I’m crazy for you.”
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th): “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” by Lauryn Hill. Taureans love in a deeply loyal and physical way. With lyrics like “You’d be like heaven to touch, I wanna hold you so much” and “At long last love has arrived,” this song paints a beautiful picture of Taurus love!
Gemini (May 21sh-June 20th): “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls. This song matches Geminis’ fun, flirty, and communicative love style. “If you wannabe my lover, you’ve gotta get with my friends” totally sums up the lighthearted and social way Geminis approach their romantic relationships.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): “Fade Into You” by Mazzy Star. When a Cancer loves, they do not simply adore the other person, they fuse with them. Cancers thrive on the commitment and emotional depth of relationships. “Fade into you” expresses this Cancerian way of loving perfectly.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): “Someone To Call My Lover” by Janet Jackson. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Leos love love! Janet Jackson sums up the Leo love style with lines like, “Friends say I’m crazy cuz easily I fall in love” and, “I love hard with everything.” Sing it loud, Janet!
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd): “Sittin’ Up In My Room” by Brandy. We’re sure all Virgos have spent copious amounts of time thinking about and analyzing their crushes. This Brandy jam speaks to the Virgo love style perfectly: in the privacy of her own room (and in her own head) she “must confess I’m a mess over you.”
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd): “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None The Richer. For romantic Libras, love feels like a fairytale, and this song, which tells the story of the perfect kiss, is pretty much the dream lifestyle for a Libra in love: happy, pretty, light, dreamy, & romantic!
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st): “#1 Crush” by Garbage. Scorpio love is all-consuming, intense, obsessive, serious, and deep. We don’t mess around when it comes to love and commitment. From the first drum beats it’s easy to see there’s never been a better Scorpio song than “#1 Crush.”
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st): “Emotions” by Mariah Carey. When a Sagittarian falls in love, they revel in the natural high it brings. “Emotions” speaks to the excitement and intensity a Sagittarian feels when they’re falling hard for someone: “I’m in love, I’m alive, intoxicated, flying high.”
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th): “I Could Fall In Love” by Selena. Capricorns tend to be a little reserved when it comes to love, but wow can they love deeply when they let that go! “I Could Fall In Love” tells a familiar Capricorn story about knowing how much you could love someone but being unsure if it’s the right thing to do.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th): “Baby, Baby” by Amy Grant. Aquarians, oh baby is this a great love song for you. The mood is lighthearted but it speaks of mutual contentment and commitment, two of Aquarius’ favorite things: “Baby, baby in any kind of weather, I am here for you forever.”
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th): “No Ordinary Love” by Sade. This song is definitely the Pisces love anthem. It has the dreamy and romantic aspects of a Pisces in love with lyrics like “When you came my way you brightened every day,” paired with the emotional depth that Pisces know all too well: “I keep crying for you.”
