Cancer season may be coming to a close, but there’s still time to celebrate. To do that, we’ve assigned each zodiac sign two Ariana Grande songs that match their personalities (she is the queen of the Cancers, after all). Keep reading to see what you got.

Cancer | June 21 – July 24
By default, any and all of Ari’s songs can be your anthem since you share her sun sign, but “needy” and “Greedy” are right up your ally. Cancers are natural empaths, absorbing emotions on a heightened level. Your capacity for love can be larger than most, because of that, you can relate to “needy” and “Greedy” since they both talk about a deep desire for love and attachment. Some may call you clingy, but you’re just invested in your personal relationships! Stream these songs to feel validated.
Leo | July 24 – August 23
Leo radiates divine, charismatic energy. You exude self-confidence and can be a bit narcissistic, but we are drawn to you either way. If you’re a femme-identifying Leo, you probably thought “GIAW” was written about you (and who knows, maybe it was). On the other hand, “7 Rings” panders to your more materialistic nature that has an affinity for all things shiny and luxe.
Virgo | August 23 – September 23
Virgos have the rep as being the task-oriented perfectionists with extremely high standards. Although we admire your drive, the expectations you put on yourself can be overwhelming. “Be Alright” is a great reminder that your personal best is good enough and that things will work out even if they’re not 100% to your likings. “thank u, next” embodies your ability to observe and analyze past discretions and recognize when you’re ready to move on to bigger and better things.
Libra | September 23 – October 23
Symbolized by the scale, Libras represent peacemaking and compassion. These traits make you an extremely understanding partner, so you may find yourself giving second, or third, or fourth chances easily. Since Libras have a tendency to get consumed in their relationships, “Thinking Bout You” is the perfect track. The double entendre of “make up” is also suitable for a Libra. Not only does the song represent the (endless) cycle of reconciling with an ex, but Libras are ruled by Venus-the planet of love and beauty-so a song referencing cosmetics is a match made in heaven.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 23
Intense, mysterious, and a little guarded, Scorpios have a gift of leaving people wanting more. You’re dedicated to the ones you love, you’re possessive and a kind of petty, so “BUWYGIB” is basically your national anthem. The darker and sultrier vibes of “BUWYGIB” and “Dangerous Woman” also fit your perceived persona. Your alluring essence can make others feel inexplicably drawn to you, which is basically the premise of “Dangerous Woman”.
Sagittarius | November 23 – December 22
“everytime” and “Break Free” ft. Zedd
Sagittarius, you are a maverick. You do your own thing whether or not your friends approve. You’re most likely to be the jet setter of the group, and a Sag loves nothing more than doing escaping on a little getaway. “Break Free” perfectly encompasses those feelings of liberation and independence. On the other hand, “everytime” talks about going back to that person despite the reservations your friends may have, and at the end of the day, you’ll do what you think is in your best interest.
Capricorn | December 22 – January 20
There’s a reason why the year starts and ends with Capricorn. You are the blueprint. You’re ambitious, a natural-born leader, and usually a workaholic. If anyone’s going to get to flex about how successful they’ve been this year, it’s you. You’re the CEO of side hustles, and your hard work pays off. But with all the stress you put on yourself to get things done, periods of anxiety and stress are bound to happen, which makes “breathin” the perfect mantra for you.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 19
The Aquarius is often described as being on another planet or being far removed from the rest of society. Because of that, “NASA” is quite literally the perfect song for you. You’re the most independent (and aloof) of the zodiac signs, and you probably agree that distance makes the heart grow fonder. So when Ari said, “I can’t really miss you when I’m with you” on “NASA”, you FELT that. Also, your distance from others makes you a bit hard to read at times (what’s going on in your head Aquarius??) and “Fake Smile” represents that perfectly.
Pisces | February 19 – March 21
Pisces, the daydreamers…based on the titles of these songs alone, I think you can tell where we’re going with this. Pisces, you are living in a technicolour rom-com while the rest of us are seeing black and white. “R.E.M” and it’s melancholy sister, “imagine” are about idealizations, and that’s sorta your brand. You are receptive, transcendent and wise, but let’s face it sometimes dreams are more fun than reality.
Aries | March 21 – April 20
Aries, you have an innate confidence that drives you to make your own rules instead of conforming with the crowd (you’re a ram, not a sheep). You are resilient, driven, and not afraid to tell it like it is. That opening monologue in “in my head” is definitely something you’ve said to a friend (or yourself) because its the epitome of a signature Aries reality check. “Bad Decisions” should be next in your rotation since you like the thrill and may find yourself instigating a fight just to make up afterwards.
Taurus | April 20 – May 21
“get well soon” and “Love Me Harder” ft. The Weeknd
Taurus, the phrase “stubborn as a mule” was kind of written about you. But that’s okay, we love an assertive boss. Comfort and self-care are your domain, so a song like “get well soon” that talks about working on yourself and feeling better is kind of perfect. The song also references being there when someone’s in need, and Taurus is probably the most reliable friend of the signs. “Love Me Harder” is another track that resonates with you because you’re a true romantic, who will fight for a durable, intimate, relationship.
Gemini | May 21 – June 21
“Honeymoon Avenue” and “Best Mistake” ft. Big Sean
Let’s set the record straight, you’re not (intentionally) two-faced, you’re just indecisive so your opinions on things and people change like the weather. You and your ex likely went through a bit of a roller coaster patch towards the end of things, and “Best Mistake” totally describes the up and down aspect of your relationship. You’re associated with youthful energy, you have a knack for making mundane tasks fun, and you’re a bit of a thrill-seeker. In relationships, sometimes you like the chase more than the actual catch, so a song about that honeymoon phase is perfect for you.
