Some March Horoscopes For Ya

It’s been quite the busy past few weeks but horoscopes are back! I’m sure you guys are going to need some new tunes to help process that March 12th full moon in Virgo, yikes! While you may have been overwhelmed by past traumas it is important to remember that full moons bring healing; Virgo intensifies this ability and the re-emergence was necessary for you to finally move forward.



Aries (March 20 – April 19)

Mars moved from Aries into Taurus on March 9th. Mars magnified your usual enthusiastic and persuasive nature so this transition into Taurus may have you left feeling a little drained of power. Not to worry though, Taurus will bring you a little more stability and structure especially in financial matters. Collect your bearings with Counting Crows’s 1996 Recovering the Satellites, and if that doesn’t do it for you perhaps Enya’s first album The Celts, a magical and exaggerated experience that Aries will love.


Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’re ruled by Venus, which recently began retrograde and won’t emerge until April 15th. Lucky for you Mars is in Taurus until April 21st, which will give you the much needed fire to fight through the obstacles the retrograde may throw you. You could use a boost from the new album Everybody Works by Oakland musician Jay Som. You’ll appreciate her drive, Melina Duterte wrote, played, recorded and produced every last bit- save a some of the backing vocals. This March 10th release was recorded in three weeks from her bedroom- immediately after touring and moving into a new appartment! She admits she drew lots of inspiration for the album from Carly Rae Jepsen’s E•MO•TION, the results are phenomenal.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Dang look at you in the spotlight earlier this month! The Sun, Mercury and Neptune were all working for you in the 10th house (of social status and fame). Come by and celebrate your explosive success with psych rock album Volcano by Temples or pick up Ed Sheeran’s  – Divide for your dual personality.


Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Couple of surprises hit you this month, Cancer, possibly in your home or at work. All this unpredictable energy could have you frantic you need to Chill, Dummy (i’m sorry cancer, couldn’t help myself) It’s the January release from Minneapolis’ P.O.S and I promise you’ll LOVE it. Self critical, like cancers, with tracks like “Born a Snake” and closing with 9 minutes of dense emotion-packed “Sleepdrone/superposition” which includes rapping about his recent kidney transplant as well as the murders of Mike Brown and Eric Garner. This album defies genres and features artists such as Allan Kingdom, Astronautalis and Kathleen Hanna.
Leo (July 23- August 22)

The solar eclipse in Pisces kickstarted some action in your 8th house. While much of the 8th house is hidden and mysterious to us, we do know that part of it houses other people’s money. This means you could experience a windfall, living  In Glorious Times the next few months. Stop in and pick up the album from Oakland’s prog rock/metal group Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.


Virgo (August 23-Sept 22)

Saturn has been giving you some friction for a while in your home area, Virgo. Could be your landlord or an annoying roommate but either way, you are restless and need change. You’ll be dealing with this until December so chill out and try to work out the details. Remember that all difficult things will eventually be resolved so there’s no use in stressing too hard. Come in and grab The Magnetic Fields – 50 Song Memoir, each song chronicles one year for first 50 years of Stephin Merritt’s life, passing through all those years could give you some much needed perspective.


Libra (September 22- October 22)

The full moon in Virgo appeared in your twelfth house this month. The twelfth house rules secrets so you may have discovered some shocking news or had something revealed that you were not ready to share. Either way you hate when the scale is tipped, both in this case and in general with today’s mass injustices. Blanckmass is right there with you in the powerful new album World Eater. Benjamin John Power released a statement about the content including that “Maybe subconsciously [the album] was some kind of countermeasure to restore some personal balance,”


Scorpio (October 23- November 21)

Oh wow Scorpio. The Solar eclipse at the end of February has some very intense love coming for you. Effects of eclipses last half the year so expect to be completely swept off your feet before September. What better time to buy the much loved instant classic from Selena – Dreaming Of You. Incredible album that will melt your heart and prepare you to fall fast.


Sagittarius ( November 22- December 21)

Your job is highlighted this month, Sagittarius. The transition of Mars into Taurus brings some pep and determination into your workdays while this past full moon lit up your house of careers. You’re zoomin, and would enjoy the speedy Hot Thoughts, by Spoon, still warm off the press from its 3/17 release.
Capricorn (December 22- January 19)

You’ve been traveling non stop haven’t you, Capricorn! Welcome back and try to settle in, you’ll need to kick back a little for the Venus retrograde. Stay local for a bit with Max Loebman’s- Wild One, one of Shuga’s own, that will loosen up your default traditional nature.


Aquarius (January 20- February 18)

The past solar eclipse in Pisces was conjunct Neptune. While this brings you a boost of creativity you’re having some trouble seeing through Neptune’s muddy waters. If you are working collaboratively make sure to really specify what you want so nothing gets lost in translation. In the meantime come pick up The Shins’ 5th album – Heartworms. This past full moon is also known as the Worm moon, aka the start of spring, when the dirt softens to allow the return of the earthworms, so watch where ya step!


Pisces (February 19- March 20)

Well Pisces, it’s been a great two years of solar eclipses with ya, February 26th brought the last one in your sign for quite a long time. Great time to look back on all the great changes and improvements you have made during this time. It may be helpful for you work through these feelings with the album Closure by Swedish artist Adna. Passionate and melancholic songs such as “Hide me in Smoke” will speak to your 12th house ruling.


New Vinyl Horoscopes (Feb 2017)


By: Raegan Bird

Aries (March 20 – April 19),

You’ve been riding a steady wave of luck this week after the lunar eclipse in fellow fire sign Leo. You’re the baby of the signs, representing a ton of child-like energy, check out the debut album of London O’Connor, O∆ (pronounced circle/triangle) on Pantone yellow vinyl. London’s self-written/ self-produced album guides you through his joys and frustrations of growing up. Plus the cover is shot by fellow young breakout artist Olivia Bee. Support today’s Youth!!!!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your fourth House, representing your home and family, has been getting the majority of your energy this week. You may relate to the love Terrace Martin shows for his Los Angeles roots in his Velvet Portraits. While you may not be a Californian, this contemporary jazz/ R&B LP will warm up even the draft-iest of Chicago apartments.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The eclipse on the 10th brought priority to your third house, which rules communication and writing.

The third house is ruled by Gemini anyway so your natural inclination towards connecting with others is even more magnified. Seems like a pretty good time to use the 5×7 postcard that comes with the Daedelus LP from the Baker’s Dozen series to write your best buds! Perhaps share your recent adventures or rave about how accurate your music horoscopes have been! (sorry, leo moon… I need the validation) Complete with tasty instrumental tracks such as “Old Fashioned” and “Maple Bacon” that you can’t help but share.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re second house is prioritised this month meaning you could be making major bank! You could find that your extra hours at work have finally paid off this paycheck. Mars is also in your 10th house until March 9th, so soak up all the attention your reputation is causing. We just got in Queen’s Greatest Hits which is always a great celebratory album, Chill out a little and let Freddie Mercury tend to both your sensitive and party side. You may also want to check out the electronic album of Jlin, Dark Lotus, it’s the plant of your sign of course.

Leo (July 23- August 22)

Whew, you really got hit with a reality check this week didn’t you leo? The eclipse on Friday was in your sign giving you a major chance to self- actualize. The 10th also marked the release of Life & Livin it by Sinkane. This funk and soul filled album honors all the highs and lows of life. You’ll also love the bright yellow album in reference to the sun, your ruling planet. These next few weeks could have you changing up your plans to catch up to your growth, why not “feel new” alongside these great tracks?

Virgo (August 23-Sept 22)

Your hidden self, because of your 12th house, is shining with the effects of the full moon. This part of your chart typically reveals the workings of your inner mind, parts that you may not show to others. Now would be a great time to take that next step in tending to your mental health. Make some personal time for yourself Virgo, clear off some floor space and put on Kid Koala & Emiliana Torrini’s Music to Draw to: Satellite. The ambient pop and soothing synth will be sure to provide you and all your houseplants with some much needed revitalization.

Libra (September 22- October 22)

Still not coming down off that Valentine’s high Libra? This feeling should stick around for a while. Perhaps treat your S.O. with the sweet tape of Beach Slang, Here I Made This For You Mixtape vol. 2. It seems your 11th house is getting all the love under the past lunar eclipse. This house rules your dreams/wishes so some of your greatest desires could be coming to you this month. We’ve got Sleep’s new album The Clarity to provide you with what you need to accept what is coming to you. We also know that you’ve got a big weakness err… i mean strength for shopping, luckily we have both red, orange and white Vinyls stocked.

Scorpio (October 23- November 21)

New projects and potential raises, perhaps one you were not expecting, are in store for you! Also in store is Parquet Courts’s Captive Of The Sun. While you are technically a captive of Pluto and Mars your aggressive energy pairs well with this Brooklyn based rock band. Only 550 copies this press! Get it while it’s hot!

Sagittarius ( November 22- December 21)

Saturn, the planet of long term thinking, is complementing your ruling ninth house, making your philosophies feel stable and successful. Saturn alongside Uranus and the full moon created a grand trine (giant triangle in the sky) for you this month. You may want to join along with aries for their O∆ listen to celebrate but also pick up Chevelle’s This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) to keep your philosophical nature grounded.

Capricorn (December 22- January 19)

Uranus played a major role in this Lunar eclipse, bringing you something unexpected and perhaps money related. This with Saturn, your ruling planet, and the moon are formed a trine that will bring nothing but good news to you. Saturn is a wise planet, a teacher of sorts which is what gives ya your well informed and mature persona. You deserve to get Drunk with Vic Chesnutt, overall his darkest album with hints of paranoia; It will speak to your suspicious nature but is fun enough to not bring you down.

Aquarius (January 20- February 18)

We’re making our way out of Aquarius season and it looks like Uranus brought you some much needed innovation! Perhaps check out the Australian metalcore album Horizons by Parkway Drive. You see ahead in a way that most of us may not, tell us what’s on the horizon!

Pisces (February 19- March 20)

You’ve been completely absorbed into your projects lately, and there’s nothing wrong with that! Get done what you need to while nodding along to the downtempo tracks of Drexciya in Lifestyles of the Laptop Cafe. The duo was quite secret about their identity for a long time and because you rule the 12th house of the hidden, you may appreciate their decision behind this.




June Music Horoscopes


Maddie takes us on an Astrological journey to find your new release companion for the month of June. An unmatched analytical study of the positioning of the celestial bodies has concluded your match with the utmost certainty. Go forth Shugs and discover your musical destiny.


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Converge – You Fail Me Redux

Put this album on for speed, Aries. You are energetic and can even be aggressive at times – just like the punishing sound of this album. Scream along to this record while running – maybe even flip a table!




Taurus (April 20- May 20)

The Wonder Years – The Upsides

I once heard that Taurus’ are known to be stubborn and that they also enjoy high quality fabrics. Well, nothing is more stubborn than a kid just trying to leave his hometown and sing about some midterms. Slip on your best khaki shorts, grab a slice of za, and listen to the twinkly guitars/emotional vocals featured on this album.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Swans – The Glowing Man

You can be a little indecisive and unpredictable, Gemini. This album will hit you with a lot – sometimes it’s creepy, sometimes it’s pretty. Who knows what you like, though. Get some of your deep thinking done while blaring this album!



Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Paul McCartney – Pure McCartney

You are sensitive and you love your fam. Paul McCartney wrote a song about his dog so you can probably relate. This record features some tearjerkers and some overly passionate songs, so you can now feel like the caring dad you’ve been dying to be.



Leo (July 23- August 22)

Whitney – Light Upon the Lake

You are determined and alluring, Leo. This album really sounds like something new – I don’t think I’ve heard the same genre used to describe it. You can be tender and genuine, which is why you’ll love listening to these sweet boys while cuffing your jeans.


Virgo Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Mumford and Sons with Baaba Maal, The Very Best & Beatenberg – Johannesburg

As a Virgo you are sympathetic and like to play things safe. Mumford and all of his sons will woo you into feeling more secure than you did in the womb. Listen to your maternal instincts and buy this album.




Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Charles Bukowski – Reads His Poetry

You like to read, so does Charles – hence this perfect album title. As a Libra you like company, and you’ll feel like part of the team – the beat writers that is – while listening to this record.



Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)Scorpio

Sumac – What One Becomes

You are very opinionated – some might even say brutal. There is nothing more punishing or stubborn than the riffs featured in this album. The tones are bold – just like you.






Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Hum – You’d Prefer An Astronaut

You like to contemplate life, you like exploring the world. You probably also like counting stars.




Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)capricorn

Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool

As someone who appreciates fine craftsmanship and professionalism, these pro-ass musicians will sooth you with some sonic majesty. You are serious and are hard working – so you better send Jonny Greenwood a thank you letter for all the intricate orchestral work featured on this album.



Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Claypool Lennon Delirium – Monolith of Phobos

As an Aquarius, you take risks and are often unconventional – like the pairing of musicians that wrote this album. You are open-minded and are willing to accept the atypical – a Sagittarius even told me that they wouldn’t have listened to this if I hadn’t put it on. This album is filled with a mixture of driving, upbeat, and catchy bass lines along with spacey psychedelic jams, which is perfect for your forward thinking lil soul. With bold sounds and tracks like “There’s No Underwear in Space,” you’ll get your avant-garde thinking done for the day. Have at it, Aquarius.


Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Bed. – Klickitat

This dreamy album will be perfect to listen to when you’re alone and just want to “sleep in like babies,” Pisces (that’s totally a lyric featured on this record). You’re v emotional and so is this album. Be the sad fish in the shoegazy sea you’ve always wanted to be. I mean, or you could listen to some Phish.
