You get your holy grail cosmic playlist, offering unique and tailored music that resonates with your energy and characteristics. Sounds like something you’d be interested in? Spotify’s zodiac playlists have you covered!
Spotify has brought zodiac-inspired musical dreams to fruition, thanks to the music platform’s ‘Cosmic Playlists’. Built with the help of astrologer Chani Nicholas, these 12 zodiac-specific Spotify playlists have a collection of soundtracks to complement your astrological personality.
Talking about crafting a digital mixtape for your zodiac, Nicholas stated in a Spotify interview, “When a song resonates with you, 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 with a lot of people, it’s the same way that a horoscope will speak to the archetypal themes of the moment.”
