Sometimes some musicians just can't even be put in the same sentence as one another. Depending on people's musical preferences. It's hard to compare and can be a bit confrontational. But one thing is for sure the day on which someone is born can't be changed. And then that's where astrology comes into place.
I'm a bit of an astrology nerd. I follow at least four zodiac Twitter accounts just to read my horoscope and see what it has to say about my zodiac sign as well as my friends and family members' signs.
Each sign is different in its own way. I find it a little scary at times how accurate it can be. However, that doesn't mean that whatever your horoscope says is dead on. But it does seem to skim the surface of similar characteristics.
I began to think, "What is the most musically talented zodiac sign?" I did my research, and looked up musicians' signs and how well they matched the characteristics of their own sign. I was amazed that some of the names fell within the same category. Clearly in this situation, it makes sense.
Of course, me being a Capricorn I want my sign to be the best. We are hard working and once we "sea goats" have a goal, we will work at trying to perfect it. But who is to say which sign is the most musically talented?
Here are some famous musicians within the 12 zodiac signs:
Aries (March 21- April 20): Steven Tyler, Elton John, Norah Jones, Diana Ross, Celine Dion, Reba McEntire
This is the first sign of the zodiac, and because of that Aries are usually seen as natural leaders. They are energetic, crave adventure and don't mind traveling. Admired for being fearless and independent, it's hard for the Aries to feel grounded; they are always on the move.
Taurus (April 21-May 21): Chris Brown, Enya, Willie Nelson, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Barbra Streisand.
This sign is represented by a bull. Tauruses are known to be a tad temperamental, but are normally described as practical and cautious in life. Food is always a must for this sign. If you aren't eating on your date, the temper may rise.
One downside is that the Taurus may be stubborn at times, but it's just the natural reaction of the strong bull. Get them angry and make sure to take cover.
Gemini (May 22-June 21): Bob Dylan, Ice Cube, Prince, Paul McCartney, Tupac Shakur, Jewel.
Gemini is well-known as the sign of the twins. At times they may even have a split personality. One task is begun and then they jump to another. Staying focused can be a bit difficult for the Gemini, but they seem to always want to be involved with something.
Never once do they seem boring. They stand for great communication. To some the Gemini seem a be superficial and flighty, but that's just due to the fact they have many interests in life. Geminis always like to make sure the atmosphere they're in is fun and relaxed for everyone.
Cancer (June 22-July 23): Carlos Santana, Beck, Ringo Starr, 50 Cent, Missy Elliot, Cyndi Lauper
Cancer is seen as very generous sign, although they can be a bit emotional. However whatever Cancer may be put through, they are very adaptable. And due to the fact that Cancers are very generous and caring, many turn to them for a shoulder to cry on. Cancers do make great people to retreat to and get away from the stressful world.
Leo (July 24-August 23): Mick Jagger, Jennifer Lopez, Slash, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Alison Krauss
Being a sun sign, Leo is very warm. They tend to have a lot of energy and are self-motivated. Most Leos want to make an impression on everything that they do. Whether it be love, their career, or simply walking down the street; they like to leave their mark. The sign of the Leo is the lion. They are very family-oriented and sought after.
Virgo (August 24- September 23): Faith Hill, Beyonce, Shania Twain, Barry White, P!nk, Amy Winehouse
One word that Virgos stand for is perfection. Virgo's can be very demanding and precise, but normally they tend to be right. Usually they are very neat and tidy people and like it that way. Virgos can be a bit critical and can have high standards, but they just know what they like in life.
Although some view them as critical, they are a very knowledgeable and skilled people; that is why most enjoy hanging out with them. If you ask a Virgo for help, they will help you no worries, but it will be handled on their own terms.
Libra (September 24-October 23): Ray Charles, Tom Petty, Gwen Stefani, John Lennon, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg
Libras are social divas. They are great thinkers, but one thing is for sure: They love to people-please. Most Libras will make sure everything is all right with everyone around them before enjoying themselves. They always like to be balanced and informed. (Their sign is the scale after all.)
Libra's have a natural charm and are just simply nice people whom most enjoy being around. However, a Libra will only do so much. If you can't take care of yourself the Libra is beyond irritated.
Scorpio (October 24-November 22): Neil Young, Drake, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Bjork
The Scorpio is an easily understood sign. Most find this sign to be sexy and determined; some tend to fear the Scorpio at first, but they don't bite. Scorpios turn heads when they walk into a room, but actually they are a bit silent.
Once one gets to know a Scorpio, then their true side comes out. Scorpios can be demanding of themselves and others, so relationships can be tricky. But they are very loyal to the ones they love. Scorpios are good listeners and tend to give good advice, but they don't take shit from anyone.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 22): Jimi Hendrix, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Frank Sinatra, Miley Cyrus, Sinead O'Connor
Sagittarius is a very confident sign. They never seem to mind taking a risk or two... or three. Sometimes their cocky attitude attracts people. The sign is very enthusiastic and always the life of the party. Sagittarians love food and the outdoors.
This sign does not do well with boredom; otherwise they may just burst. One downside is that the sign is sometimes caught up within their time; once they're onto something they won't stop. They aren't the best of communicators, but they sure like to have fun.
Capricorn (December 23 - January 20): David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Skrillex, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Manson, Dolly Parton, the author
Capricorns are one of the most ambitious signs of the zodiac. They may be a bit shy at first, but they are the types of people that like to stick to a close group of friends. Capricorns are not afraid of hard work and at times everything is a business deal.
Capricorns never turn their backs onto friends or family. They are attracted to the finer things in life. Most say the phrase of the Capricorn is "Money over hoes."
Aquarius (January 21-February 19): Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Bob Marley, Alice Cooper, Shakira, Garth Brooks
Aquarius is very unique, but they never want to take pride in being so. They always have an enormous amount of energy that rubs off on others the right way. They enjoy experimenting and taking a glance at new options. This sign is an awesome listener, but if you tell them they're wrong they just won't have it. Their way or the highway.
Pisces (February 20-March 20): Justin Bieber, Lou Reed, Rihanna, Kurt Cobain, Johnny Cash, Carrie Underwood
Pisces are summed up as being very emotionally developed characters. Friends always look to this sign for comfort. However, since Pisces has such a sensitive nature, decision-making is not a fun process. They don't always like to think their problems through. The Pisces is very intuitive. Some like to say that a Pisces is a sign that can drink, and drink a lot.
Yes, I did my research. And I'll admit I'm a bit of an astrology nerd. But it's hard to tell which sign is more talented. However seeing some of the simulations for each sign and artist seemed a bit dead on at times.(Although I don't know everything about their personal lives, clearly.)
For me, I'd have to say both the Pisces and Aquarius have it in the bag. Then again every sign has its own little surprise.

I like to say I'm like Janis Joplin.
