Those who’ve read the blog for awhile will know that I sometimes like to share fun, speculative posts about the zodiac signs. (Like one about the zodiac signs of the White Lotus characters or the perfect wedding dress for each sign.) Today I’ll be sharing another one about every Taylor Swift Era.

Taylor Swift Era Zodiac Signs

With her ongoing and massively successful Eras tour, the latest Taylor’s Version release, and her highly publicized rebound relationship with Matty Healy, Taylor Swift has been everywhere lately.

Thus, it seems like a perfect time to talk about all the singer’s different “eras” and what astrological sign they best exemplify.

So, without further ado, here are the Taylor Swift eras defined by their zodiac signs.

(Debut) Taylor Swift: Virgo

Taylor released her self-titled debut album in 2006. The songs, which were written by an adolescent Swift (she was just 16 at the time), depict youthful innocence and the album has an overall idealistic vibe.

Debut Taylor Swift, then, would likely be a Virgo. This sign is known for being hardworking, logical, and practical.

And, more than that, Virgo’s have an innocent, modest, and gentle demeanor.

Notable Songs:
  • Teardrops On My Guitar
  • Our Song
Style Highlights:
  • Cowboy boots
  • Curly hair
Fearless: Taurus

Taylor’s 2008 album, Fearless, marked her first foray into a more mainstream sound. Still classified as a country album and with a running theme of romance, it showcased her ability to crossover into the pop realm. On top of that, she began trading in her cowboy boots for heels.

Fearless Taylor Swift, with all her hopeless romantic energy and love of luxury, would be a Taurus. The Taurus cliché is that they are stubborn, and while true, they’re also ruled by Venus, the planet of love and money. They’re hardworking and practical, but deeply romantic and drawn to beauty and the finer things in life.

Notable Songs:
  • Love Story
  • You Belong With Me
Style Highlights:
  • Sparkly, princess gowns
  • High heels
Speak Now: Gemini

Speak Now,released in 2010, featured both country and pop songs, but there was a noticeable theatrical element to her music. Songs were deeply personal and marked what would be an ongoing theme: thinly veiled references to famous exes. Her on stage presence also took on a more dramatic, performative air.

The mixture of vulnerability, flirtatiousness, and drama makes Speak Now era Taylor a clear-cut Gemini. Known for their dual personality, Gemini’s are adaptable, witty, and prone to drama.

Notable Songs:
  • Back To December
  • Dear John
Style Highlights:
  • Purple colors
  • Flirty mini-dresses
Red: Aries

Widely regarded as one of her most notable albums, Red was released in 2012. Songs like I Knew You Were Trouble became instant hits. But despite the bold, fun facade, Red is an album of heartbreak, passion, and – at times – anger.

This fiery, energetic, and slightly aggressive vibe makes Red era Taylor an Aries. The fire sign is known for their passion and competitive spirit. On top of that, the Aries power color is red. Coincidence?  

Notable Songs:
  • We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
  • 22
Style Highlights:
  • Bold, red lip
  • Blunt bangs
  • Vintage styles
1989: Leo

Another highly memorable album, 1989 was released in 2014 and marked Taylor’s first true transition into a pop-star. Songs became catchy hit sensations. On stage, she was high energy and glamorous while off stage, she launched her famous girl “squad,” frequently seen with models like Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid.

Popular, fun, extra glam, and full of confidence, 1989 era Taylor is clearly a Leo. More than any other sign, Leo’s love to bask in attention. They’re also known for their playful popularity and regal glamour.

Notable Songs:
  • Bad Blood
  • Shake It Off
Style Highlights:
  • Crop top and skirt sets
  • Chic, sophisticated bob
Reputation: Scorpio

In 2017, Taylor officially entered her villain era with the release of Reputation. It was a darker, edgier album, made in response to her growing backlash. She even took the twitter insults thrown at her – that of a snake – and used it as a personal motif, reclaiming her power. It’s at once angry and vulnerable.

Another notable thing about this album was the lack of press. Swift did no interviews or media tours for the release. Instead, she wiped her social media and dropped the album without fanfare. All of this makes Reputation era Taylor a definite Scorpio.

Scorpio’s are known for being sexual, mysterious, and somewhat secretive in nature. But, as a water sign, they’re also deeply emotional and interested in personal growth and transformation. If nothing else, Reputation demonstrated Swift’s ability to overcome adversity.

Notable Songs:
  • Look What You Made Me Do
  • Delicate
Style Highlights:
  • Black bodysuits
  • Darker makeup
Every Taylor Swift Era defined by it’s Zodiac Sign
Lover: Libra

Doing a 180 from Reputation, Taylor released Lover in 2019. Style wise, this era was defined by a rainbow of pastel colors and sparkles. The songs were upbeat, happy, and bouncy.

In her personal life, Swift was enjoying a private romance with Joe Alwyn while also going to battle with Scooter Braun for the rights to her music. Ultimately, Swift announced her decision to re-record her old albums to reclaim ownership of her music.

This drive for justice along with the poppy, romantic nature of the album makes Lover era Taylor a Libra. Symbolized by the scales, Libra’s are all about equality and balance. They’re also known for being hopeless romantics and charming social butterflies. Plus, the Libra power colors are pastel blue and pink, just like the Lover color palette.

Notable Songs:
  • ME!
  • You Need To Calm Down
Style Highlights:
  • Pastel colors
  • Sequined blazers
Folklore: Cancer

In summer of 2020, during the height of the COVID pandemic and nationwide isolation, Taylor dropped Folklore. Not only was the album a surprise, but it featured a more indie, fictional element. Songs were more melancholy, giving the album a soft, moody, introspective vibe.

You can picture Folklore era Taylor in all her cottagecore glory as a definite Cancer. Symbolized by the crab, Cancer’s enjoy home, domesticity, and family. They’re also emotional, vulnerable, sensitive, and somewhat moody.

Notable Songs:
  • exile
  • cardigan
Style Highlights:
  • Ethereal, floral dresses
  • Cozy knit sweaters
Evermore: Pisces

A few months after Folklore dropped, Taylor released it’s wintery twin sister, Evermore.

The overall aesthetic was similar, with soft, indie songs. But, there was a little more wisdom and the album had a poetic, dreamy quality.

Evermore era Taylor would likely be a Pisces, then. Another water sign, Pisceans are known as the poets of the zodiac. They tend to be emotional and romantic, but they’re also old souls.

Notable Songs:
  • champagne problems
  • ’tis the damn season
Style Highlights:
  • Earthy, autumn colors
  • Soft, messy hair
Taylor’s Version: Capricorn

In 2021, Taylor made good on her promise of re-recording her old albums, first with the release of Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in the spring followed by Red (Taylor’s Version) that autumn.

More recently, she dropped the Taylor’s Version of Speak Now. Unsurprisingly, it’s shot to the top of the charts.

The dedication and ambitious nature of re-releasing her albums makes Taylor’s Version era Taylor a Capricorn. Known for being stoic, serious, and studious, Capricorn’s are hardworking, patient, and focused on their career. 

Midnights: Sagittarius

Taylor released her latest album, Midnights, in 2022. One of my personal favorites, Midnights is a heady mix of indie and pop. Style wise, Swift dons cozy, casual clothes along with fur and diamonds. The multifaceted and nuanced nature of the album gives it a rebellious feeling with themes of personal liberation and freedom.

Restless, rebellious, and passionate, Midnights era Taylor is seems like a Sagittarius. Symbolized by the archer, Sagittarians are honest, adventurous, and philosophical. They’re also known to be curious, free-spirited, and on constant quest for higher purpose.

Notable Songs:
  • Anti-Hero
  • Karma
Style Highlights:
  • Retro casuals
  • 70’s disco glam
Eras Tour: Aquarius

Although not an album per say, the Eras Tour could be considered an era of its own. With a 3-hour, 44-song set-list, it’s being hailed as her best tour to date. Whimsical, innovate, and cerebral, the Era’s Tour would likely be classified as an Aquarius.

Symbolized by the water bearer, Aquarians are unique, intelligent, and progressive. They march to the beat of their own drum, yes, but they’re also incredibly wise, social, and idealistic.

    This is such a fun post! I’m a huge Swiftie and a Gemini and Speak Now wouldn’t have been my first thought – but it totally makes sense! I think it encompasses Gemini perfectly. Thank you so much for sharing!
