New Year, New You. A chance to start fresh rather than longing for the next Monday. As new year resolutions start to wear off, the only things that are giving hope to latch onto are daily, weekly, and monthly horoscopes for the rest of 2019.
Some people may not be familiar with Horoscopes so here’s a brief summary:
Horoscopes are astrological charts involving the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets. In addition, sensitive remarks like birthdate, birth time, and angels of the solar system are included. The main categories in horoscopes are the zodiac signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.
Horoscopes highly intertwine with pop culture more than we know it nowadays. Spotify is known for their enthralling playlists that their millions of satisfied users praise them for. Whether it’s for ‘Sunday Blues’ or ‘Electronic Nights’, Spotify has the playlist for you. Recently, Spotify released Cosmic Playlists for every zodiac sign.

Now, slow your roll. Before you stream your zodiac playlist, you would want to check your sun and rising sign. Horoscopes are based on your sun sign, but Spotify’s guest astrologer, Chani Nicholas, elaborated on ascendants instead. Ascendants illustrate the planets that are influencing the current state of the houses. In more simple text, the different areas of a sign’s life.
Spotify’s Cosmic Playlist are located in their Pop Culture page.
Not from the U.S? Here’s a link for the international Cosmic Playlists.
Since ascendants are constantly changing, Spotify will update the playlist every month with the help of Chani Nicholas. This will give users an idea, that will come to each ascendant at the beginning of the month. In fact, once you open the Cosmic Playlist, a pop-up description will appear with a detailed interpretation foreshadowing the ascendant’s month.
Whether you believe in astrology or not, Spotify introduces a new underrated, diverse group of musicians for the users to enjoy daily. Spotify also includes your favorite mainstream artists. This influences music fans to discover aspiring artists; including, recognition for an artist’s platform.
Spotify is one to acknowledge and care for the user’s experience with music. They withhold a futuristic agenda to become many of the first in the music entertainment industry. Spotify explores the realistic and unrealistic expectations of the listeners’ standards. Whether it’s a guide for the month or dancing to the stars, the music will evolve into an expansion of worlds.
