Every week, a different FADER editor compiles a playlist to highlight a new release and give you a guide to that artist’s web of influences and peers. These Staff Selects live in our Spotify app, alongside GEN Fs from our archives and playlists for each issue. This week, it’s Deidre Dyer on her tenuous relationship with astrology.
I’ve never been big into astrology or the zodiac. I kind of look to it to reinforce what I already know. I’m sensitive, secretive and highly impressionable—a pisces. I’ve dated two guys that were lazy homebodies and were even more sensitive than me—cancers. I had a friend that was argumentative and kinda bossy—an aries. I don’t need the stars to tell me to steer clear of dudes that are only concerned with their comfort zones and homegirls that like start beef. No cosmic surprises there. While I’m not a devoted believer, the astral workings should not be wholly ignored. Communication sure seems pretty whacked out when Mercury is in retrograde, and I’ve had some wild-ass late-night adventures during full moons. So in order to keep the dialogue open, I compiled a list of killer songs that mention the zodiac signs, astrological compatibility and horoscope readings. I hope you jam to them regardless of your sign.
