There’s a Spotify playlist for your zodiac sign
What zodiac sign are you? The age-old icebreaker gains an audible significance with new Spotify playlists based on your astrological sign. But will the music-streaming app's cosmic guessing game actually bring up your most on-brand tunes?
Launched today (Jan. 17), the 12 zodiac-specific Spotify playlists are curated by a real astrologer, Chani Nicholas. And each unique playlist is "informed by Chani’s astrological readings—which determine the particular sign’s theme of the moment—and is accompanied on [the] platform by the reading itself," according to a statement from Spotify.

But how does Nicholas actually choose the tunes that go on each playlist? In a Spotify interview, the cosmic guide reveals the universal feels that point her in the right direction when crafting a digital mixtape for your horoscope.
"When a song resonates with you," she explains, "it might feel really personal like it’s speaking about your own experience. But it’s also speaking to a huge, broad audience. When there’s something collectively going on where a song resonates for a lot of people, it’s the same way that a horoscope will speak to the archetypal themes of the moment.
"Astrology is about a specific moment in time," the astrologer adds. "Each moment has a specific astrological mark. ... Spotify and I have come together to take the theme of the moment for each sign and curate a playlist that reflects that."
