*Disclaimer: These are the author’s interpretations of the zodiac personalities and the album and not official explanations.*
- “shut up”
If there’s any sign that would clap back at haters, it’s an Aries. Which makes this a perfect track for this fire sign? Ariana tells her haters to stop worrying about her, mind their own business, and “shut up!”
Scorpio is probably the freakiest sign of the zodiac and “34+35” captures this attitude perfectly. Ariana blatantly describes the adventurous sexual positions she wants to create with her partner. Being in tune with their sexuality, is something a Scorpio would totally do.
Capricorns are known to be the sign that is all about achievements, goals, and the big picture. On this track, Ariana makes clear that before continuing a relationship with someone, she wants to make sure that it’s actually going somewhere as shown in the lyric, “But before I lead you on / Baby, tell me what’s your motive.”
- “just like magic”
Pisces are probably the most whimsical and dreamy sign of all the zodiacs. The pleasant optimistic lyrics in this track totally resemble the attitude of Pisces with lyrics like, “I just wanna have a good day,” “Manifest it, I finessed it,” and “Good karma, my aesthetic.”
- “off the table”
Cancers can be known as the people pleaser sign. They try to make everyone in their lives happy because they’re always skeptical about if these people even like them in the first place. “off the table ” is a vulnerable track that directly targets these types of insecurities, especially after a heartbreak when they may wonder if they will, “ever love the same way again.”
- “six thirty”
The symbol for Libra is a scale, meaning they strive to keep the balance. Basically, world peace is at the top of their list (not to mention on an analog clock both the minute and hour hand would land on the 6 for it to be 6:30). Lyrics like, “You can only stay mad for a minute,” perfectly capture the no-drama attitude of a libra. They’re never looking for a fight and just want everyone to be happy.
- “safety net”
Virgos are very practical. The line, “Is it real this time or is it in my head,” perfectly describes a Virgo. In an interview, Ariana explained that she used this line to rationalize whether the relationship is worth staying in because she was imaging a perfect partner in her head, but unfortunately that person was not as perfect as she dreamt them up to be. A Virgo would never want to fall in love with someone like that, especially if there’s no “safety net.”
- “my hair”
This might sound weird but Leo’s are actually known as the sign with the best hair (think Megan Markle, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Momoa). This track is all about Ariana’s iconic hairstyle and how everyone should be just as obsessed with it as she is!
Sagittarius is the most adventurous sign which makes the track “nasty” a perfect fit for this sign. They are also super blunt and direct, especially when they know what they want. This can be seen in the lyric, “I just wanna keep it real.” Sags are willing to try anything new, and every day is an opportunity to explore life!
- “west side”
There are five love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. Taureans crave the physical affection described in this track, such as “I don’t wanna think too much / I just wanna feel,” and “I don’t want it if it ain’t your touch.” Not to mention Taureans are ruled by the planet Venus, so they share an affinity for luxury and comfort. In the lyrics, “I’m gonna be your new favorite / Tell them you’re closing the door / I am the only for sure,” you can see how Taureans are one of the most loyal signs.
Gemini, much like the Sagittarius, are super adaptable and easy-going. Whether this is because their nickname is the “twin sign” or because Gemini is set directly across from Sagittarius in the circle of zodiac signs and would be an almost perfect match for the impulsive fire sign, Gemini wins the album single this time. “positions” is all about being a versatile boss while simultaneously being flexible and willing to change for love.
People born under the sign of Aquarius often tend to be a bit on the private side. It can be hard for them to open up, even to people close to them and even themselves. In the track “pov” Ariana describes how she yearns for the ability to express her feelings the way her partner does, which can be seen in lyrics like, “I wanna love me / The way that you love me,” and “I’d love to see me from your point of view.”
No matter what your zodiac sign is, I think we can all agree that this is yet another album from a pop queen that saved 2020.
