Summer is here and the weather is too beautiful to stay indoors. Grab your delicious icy beverages, and go outside. You can run, hike, bike, or dance around a campfire. But you can’t do any of that without a fun workout song playlist.
I have compiled a fun and active playlist for the whole zodiac. Read on to find out which song you should blast through your earbuds based on your zodiac sign. Don’t forget to check your moon and rising sign as well as your sun sign. Find out why it’s important to check all three of these signs here.
Also, if it is way too hot, wear sunscreen and don’t stay outside too long!
Aries – The Warrior
Written by Nick Gilder and Holly Knight and performed by Scandal.
Aries is the warrior of the zodiac, so naturally I had to pair it with this Patty Smyth classic. When picking an Aries song for this playlist, I approached the decision the same way I did with my Aries pick on the Stevie Nicks playlist. So I picked a song that appealed to Aries’s wild side and fighting spirit.
Taurus – Tempo
Written and performed by Lizzo. Co-written by Melissa Elliot, Theron Thomas, Raymond Scott, Dan Farber, Eric Frederic, Antonia Cuna, and Tobias Wincorn.
Taurus has to shake their booty to a song written by one of the greatest Taurean performers of our time. The wholesome hedonist will love the lyrics and the subtle double entendres about cake. And true to its title, the song’s tempo will make all the fixed earth signs get up and dance.
Gemini – Two of Hearts
Written by John Mitchell and performed by Stacey Q.
Gemini gets a blast from the past! Geminis are represented by ‘the twins” so this song will be perfect for the dualistic air sign. This song’s upbeat rhythm and staccato lyrics will get Gemini’s blood pumping and their feet tapping.
Cancer – Bark At The Moon
Written and performed by Ozzy Osbourne. Co-written by Jake E. Lee and Bob Daisley.
Like Aries and Gemini, Cancer also gets to be paired with a fun ’80s song. There is just something about ’80s music that makes you want to get active. Cancerians are often called moon children because they are ruled by the moon, so this wild song about a man turning into a werewolf at the sight of a full moon will get them howling and hopping.
Leo – You Should See Me In A Crown
Written and performed by Billie Eilish. Co-written by Finneas O’Connell.
As the sovereign of the zodiac, Leos should wear a crown at all times. However, wearing a crown while exercising may strain your neck. So you can try listening to this song instead. Blast this song and make them bow!
Virgo – Formation
Written and performed by Beyoncé Knowles. Co-written by Khalif Brown, Asheton Hogan, Michaet Len Williams II.
Beyoncé is arguably one of the most famous Virgos in the world. So naturally, I had to pick one of her most iconic songs for the mutable earth sign. This song will certainly encourage Virgos to get into formation!
Libra – Wings
Written and performed by Little Mix. Co-Written by Thomas Barnes, Peter Kelleher, Ben Kohn, Iain James Erika Nuri, Michelle Lewis Mischke Butler, Heidi Rojas.
Libras are known to be social butterflies, so I had to pair them with this fun bubblegum pop song from the British girl group Little Mix. When the air sign listens to this song, their feet won’t be able to touch the ground.
Scorpio – S&M
Written by Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Sandy Wilhelm, Ester Dean, Britney Spears (remix). Performed by Rihanna.
Scorpios are not that bad, but they are perfectly good! As one of the sexiest, and most sensual signs in the zodiac, the fixed water sign will enjoy running or dancing to this Rihanna classic.
Sagittarius – Highway To Hell
Written and performed by AC/DC.
I can not think of a better, fast-paced rock song for the travel-loving Sagittarius. The mutable fire sign can indulge in their wanderlust by blasting this song through their earbuds while they go for a jog.
Capricorn – Work
Written and performed by Rihanna. Co-Written by Jahron Braithwaite, Matthew Samuels, Allen Ritter, Rupert Thomas Jr., Aubrey Graham, Monte Moir.
Rihanna gets two songs on this list, because of course she does. The iconic singer has a lot of Capricorn in her chart, so maybe she was channeling that energy when she wrote this fun and catchy song. I can see the cardinal earth sign dancing or kickboxing to this song.
Aquarius – Extreme
Written and performed by Valora.
Aquarians often feel like they are a little too extreme and “out there,” so they will surely love this song. On a personal note, I hike and dance to this song all of the time and I am a lunar Aquarian. So I can guarantee that most Aquarians will enjoy this song.
Pisces – Sail
Written and performed by Awolnation.
This song is a little slower than the other songs on this list, but that is probably perfect for peaceful Pisces. Though the term “peaceful” is somewhat relative because this song is not exactly serene. But I can still envision the imaginative escapist water sign hiking, dancing, or even doing extreme yoga to this song.
Ophiuchus – Tiptoe Through The Tulips
Written by Al Dubin and Joe Burke. Performed by Tiny Tim.
