We are right smack dab in the middle of Capricorn season! Get your heart racing and your adrenaline pumping with this powerful playlist! If you have Capricorn anywhere on your birth chart, particularly your sun, moon, or rising signs, these songs will speak to your confidence and charisma. 

If you don’t know your birth chart you can check here.



Written and performed by Janelle Monáe, featuring Eryka Badu. Co-written by Kellis Parker Jr., Roman GianArthur Irvin, Nathaniel Irvin III, Charles Joseph II.

Capricorn, you have great leadership skills and immeasurable willpower, and that is why this song is perfect for you. This is a song about empowering marginalized people and giving them the strength to rule over their own lives and futures. You are a natural born leader and this song is your anthem.

Lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“Even if it makes others uncomfortable

I will love who I am”

Damn It Feels Good To Be Me


Written and performed by Andy Grammer.

Capricorns often get maligned for their self-importance. And while arrogance is not always the most attractive quality, they are not merely egotistical. Capricorns work hard to achieve the love that they have for themselves. With lyrics like ”ain’t got nothing left to prove,” this song reminds them that they cannot survive without having a little bit of pride in themselves. 

Lyrics Capricorn will love:

“I’m no good at being you

My philosophy

Damn, it feels good to be me”



Written and performed by Beyoncé Knowles. Co-written by Khalif Brown, Asheton Hogan, and Michael Len Williams II.

This song by the fabulous earth sign, Beyoncé, speaks to Capricorn’s ability to achieve anything that they put their minds to. You know how to dream it, work hard, grind until you own it, and twirl on your haters. Whenever you are feeling low, play this song and remember just how awesome you are! 

Lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“Paparazzi, catch my fly, and my cocky fresh

I’m so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin’)

I’m so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces”

If We Make It Through December 


Written and performed by Merle Haggard.

Not every song on this playlist has to be a high-energy bop. Capricorns deserve some thoughtful ballads in their mix, too. Capricorn season starts at the tail end of December but that is not the only reason that this song made the list. This introspective tune about a man looking for work during Christmas, speaks to Capricorn’s hardworking nature and accountability.

Lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“Got laid off down at the factory

And their timing’s not the greatest in the world

Heaven knows I’ve been working hard

I wanted Christmas to be right for daddy’s girl”

Wrong Bitch


Written and performed by Todrick Hall, featuring Bob The Drag Queen. Co-written by Jean-Yves G. Ducornet, Carl Seante Mcgrier, and Kofi A. Owusi-Ofori. 

Capricorns have leadership qualities that are unmatched by any other sign in the zodiac. And this entrancing song written from the point of view of the Wicked Witch Of The West, will awaken Capricorn’s “take-no-prisoner” attitude. Capricorns will enjoy singing along to empowering lyrics like “‘cause I won’t back down and I won’t concede.” 

Other lyrics Capricorn will love:

“Cause I bite my tongue for no wizard

I fight with fire in a snow blizzard

I tear that emerald city down, ain’t no sitting down

With no cold lizards like huh”

I’m Gone


Written and performed by Dolly Parton.

Of course the captivating Capricorn Dolly Parton had to be featured on this playlist! As I stated earlier in this article, emotionally evolved Capricorns manifest self-love as a means of survival. This song tells the story of a woman freeing herself from an unhappy relationship will speak to Capricorn’s independent nature.

Lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“All I want’s my freedom

Reclaim my maiden name, I’m movin’ on

‘Cause I’m gone”

We Are The Champions


Written and performed by Queen.

There is something about the music in this song that just oozes charisma. And Capricorns are nothing if not charismatic. Capricorns do not always see the need for humility, especially when they are proud of their accomplishments and the accomplishments of their peers. This song speaks to their pride and fortitude. 

Lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“But it’s been no bed of roses

No pleasure cruise

I consider it a challenge before

The human race

And I ain’t gonna lose”

Don’t Stop Believing 


Written and performed by Journey

The cardinal earth sign will love this karaoke classic. Capricorns are known to be one of the most ambitious signs in the zodiac. And you can’t be ambitious without believing in yourself. They will enjoy singing this iconic Journey and encourage the whole bar to sing along.

Lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“Some’ll win, some will lose

Some are born to sing the blues

Whoa, the movie never ends

It goes on and on and on and on”

Whatever It Takes


Performed by Imagine Dragons. Written by Benjamin Arthur McKee, Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel James Platzman, Daniel Wayne Sermon, and Joel Little.

Capricorns do not back down from challenges. Competition does not intimidate them, it only motivates them. This is a great song for Capricorns to listen to when they need a little extra drive and determination. The cardinal earth signs will relate to lyrics like “I do whatever it takes because I love how it feels when I break the chains.”

Other lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“Everybody hoping they could be the one

I was born to run, I was born for this”

I Am A Rock, I Am An Island


Performed by Simon and Garfunkel. Written by Paul Simon.

This song title may be a little too on-the-nose for an earth sign. But hear me out. This seemingly peaceful song gives us a respite from the more fast-paced songs on this list. The song depicts a winter’s day, which is perfect for the wintry sign. And it also speaks to solipsistic Capricorns’ need for alone time. No Capricorn is an island unto themselves, but this song will allow them to enjoy their own company and reflect on their life. 

Lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“I’ve built walls

A fortress deep and mighty

That none may penetrate”



Written and performed by Mary J. Blige. Co-written by Sam Romans.

Mary J. Blige understands the Capricornian struggle of being underestimated, being a Capricorn herself. This song will encourage you to fix your crown and remind all your haters and detractors of who exactly they are messing with. Capricorns can cathartically belt out the lyrics, “now you’re looking at a leader, now you’re staring at a queen, you said I’ll never be someone, but now I’m pulling all the strings!” 

Other lyrics that Capricorn will love:

“I made it to the end

I nearly paid the cost

I lost a lot of friends

I sacrificed a lot

I’d do it all again

‘Cause I made it to the top”

I Will Always Love You


Written and performed by Dolly Parton. 

Surely you did not think that I would only put one Dolly Parton song on this list did you? Nope, she gets two songs on this list and maybe even some songs on Aquarius’ playlist. She was born on the cusp after all. Capricorns know how to love themselves and take care of themselves. But they, like their fellow earth signs, also know how to take care of others as well. Capricorns know the importance of self-love and self-care, but they also understand the importance of self-sacrifice. Listen to this song when you need reassurance about committing a selfless act.   

You should also listen to Whitney Houston’s iconic version!

Lyrics Capricorn that will love:

“I hope life treats you kind

And I hope that you have all

That you ever dreamed of”
