The Aquarius Musician: How Your Zodiac Sign Affects Your Music
I did a whole series listing every Aquarius musician ever, and I wanted to expand on that to dive into what that really means.
Some people don’t believe in zodiac signs at all, while some people go all in and believe every bit of it. I feel like I fall somewhere in the middle, and most people probably do as well. There are SO many factors that can affect your personality (including your childhood, your family, friends, etc) that it really can’t be all dependent on your zodiac sign. Other people point out that your main zodiac sign (your Star Sign) is just one part of your life, and that you also have Sun Signs, Moon Signs, Planet Signs, and other factors.
When you consider all of these, it’s no wonder that you may not feel like you identify with your star sign. That’s okay! You can find out any of your other signs here. You can scroll down to find your Venus Sign, Vertex, Mercury Sign, and many others. Once you have those, you may find that your personality is much more similar to one of your other signs. I’ll be writing about each sign over the coming year, so you can come back and find the one that’s closest to you.

Aquarius Singers, Songwriters and Musicians
You can find general descriptions of Aquarians everywhere, but let’s do a quick recap just to catch us all up. Aquarians are air signs, but their symbol is “the water bearer.” They are known for being open-minded, fair and inviting to all.
On the negative side, they can be desperate for attention and absolutely hate being isolated. FOMO was invented for Aquarius! Aquarians can also be overly eccentric, which isn’t a bad thing per se (I love eccentric people), but they can go too far overboard with their quirks.

The Aquarius and Songwriting
Aquarians are willing to experiment and try almost anything, which is great for songwriting. Constantly looking toward the future, and Aquarius can sense the direction popular music is headed long before anyone else. People might think your music is strange, but they’re just not on your level yet. Once it’s all over the radio, they’ll realize you were onto something!
Lyrically, you may struggle with expressing your emotions. Aquarians tend to be guarded, but never fear. With your welcoming nature, you should have no trouble finding cowriters!
Aquarian co-writers are great at making sure everyone feels included. With your ability to see solutions or ideas that no one else would consider, you’ll be a great contributor to any co-writing group. Be careful, however, to not get too offended if people don’t share your vision. You have a tendency to shut down easily if your ideas aren’t appreciated, so guard against that. You can always use your ideas on different projects!
If your co-writer is an Aquarius, remember to include them as much as they include everyone else. They are a friendly and inviting person and expect the same in return. If they pitch an idea that doesn’t seem to make sense, have them talk it out with you. If they can explain their rationale, you might find that their idea is innovative and useful!
The Aquarius Singer
The eccentric Aquarius is great at creating an image. You’re likely to have a group of adoring fans long before you even have an album! Gather up your social media fans and rally them to support you in your singing. Posting frequent cover videos or rough drafts will help you connect with fans.
Since Aquarians can be aloof and distant, your fans might think you are ‘fake’ once they meet you in person. This isn’t necessarily true, it’s just that they weren’t able to break your shell, and that’s okay. As long as YOU know your truth, stay grounded in it.
Vocally, you’ve got to learn to reign yourself in. You’re so creative and willing to try new things, you might push yourself too hard physically. A good vocal coach will help you explore your creativity while staying within the boundaries of good vocal practice.

The Aquarius Musician
A band is perfect for an Aquarius, as they are likely to enjoy a group setting. If you’re struggling with solo music lessons, try finding a garage band to practice together. Make sure you’re actually practicing, however. It’s easy to turn a band meeting into a group therapy session, and Aquarian bandmates do not like baring all of their emotions. Put your emotions into your playing and you’ll find you grow your talent easily.
Aquarians musicians do not like being bored, and you may find that music lessons become tedious or boring. Remember, scales are important! Find ways to make practice interesting and switch up your methods to help yourself grow.
The Aquarius in the Music Business
Being original and independent is one of Aquarius’s many strengths. A solo career would be relatively easy for an Aquarius, even though you do tend to enjoy a crowd. Gathering a team is one of your strong suits, so don’t feel like you need to do everything yourself! You don’t have to open yourself up too much to business partners, but you’ll need to get vulnerable enough to share your goals. After all, how can people help you succeed if they don’t know what success means to you?
You’ll also want to designate someone to help reel you in when your ideas tend to spiral out of the realm of possibility. It’s great that you have such innovative ideas, but you’ll want to have someone to bring you back to earth if you go outside of budget or feasibility!
