Aries – Christmas Wrapping
Written by Chris Butler. Performed by The Waitresses.
Aries has garnered a reputation for being grumpy and easily irritated. While that can be true sometimes, underneath that hard exterior beats the heart of a romantic. With sardonically sanguine lyrics, this fun song about reconnecting with an old flame during Christmas perfectly encapsulates Aries’ temperamental yet optimistic nature.
Lyrics Aries will love:
“Bah! Humbug! Now that’s too strong ‘Cause it is my favorite holiday”
“Merry Christmas, merry Christmas! Couldn’t miss this one this year”
Taurus – This Christmas
Written and performed by Donny Hathaway. Co-written by Nadine Theresa McKinnor.
Hang all the mistletoe, because Taurus wants to get to know you better. This edifying earth sign enjoys their earthly and epicurean delights. Taurus is ruled by Venus, so they will appreciate this subtly seductive song. The lyrics are sweet and full of traditional holiday cheer. But the music is sensual and will put Taurus in the mood for some cozy caressing by the fireplace.
Lyrics Taurus will love:
“And as we trim the tree, how much fun it’s gonna be together”
“The fireside is blazing bright. And we’re caroling through the night”
Gemini – Grown Up Christmas List
Written and performed by Amy Grant. Co-written by David Foster and Linda Thompson-Jenner
Geminis are idealists who express themselves best through the power of the written word. So I imagine this song resonates with them more so than the other signs. It can be hard to hold onto your Christmas cheer around this time of year. And this song, written from the point of view of an adult’s Christmas letter to Santa, will speak to the mutable air sign’s hope for a better world.
Lyrics Gemini will love:
“Well I’m all grown up now And still need help somehow I’m not a child but my heart still can dream”
“What is this illusion called the innocence of youth? Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth”
Cancer – Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
Written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich. Performed by Darlene Love.
Cancers are sentimental but they don’t put too much emotional stock in gifts or material items. Their sentimentality is attached to their community and their loved ones. Christmas decorations and presents do not fill the tender-hearted moon child with the holiday spirit. This song speaks to them because the only thing that will make them shine like pretty lights on a tree is being with the person they love the most.
Lyrics Cancerians will love:
“If there was a way, I’d hold back this tear, but it’s Christmas Day”
“They’re singing Deck The Halls but it’s not like Christmas at all ‘cause I remember when you were here, and all the fun we had last year”
Leo – All I Want For Christmas Is You
Written and performed by Mariah Carey. Co-written by Walter Afanasieff
Let’s be real here. I assigned this song to Leo because they are the biggest divas in the entire zodiac, and Mariah Carey is the biggest Christmas diva ever! Just picture a Leo dressed to the nines in a faux fur coat, belting this song at the company Christmas karaoke party, and living their best life as they hit those vocal runs. All they want for Christmas is the spotlight! Also, if you are more into alternative music, My Chemical Romance does a great cover of this song.
Lyrics Leo will love:
“I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas is you”
“I don’t need to hang my stocking there upon the fireplace Santa Claus won’t make me happy with a toy on Christmas Day”
Virgo – Twelve Days Of Christmas
Traditional with additions by Frederic Austin.
Virgos are known for their love of logic and order. That is why Twelve Days of Christmas is the perfect song for them. The imagery of people dancing and playing music while four birds, um, call each other, gets them in a festive mood. While the meticulous arrangement of the song gives them a sense of peace during this chaotic time of year. Also, they love seeing drunk people sing this song at the same office Christmas karaoke party that Leo is attending.
Lyrics Virgo will love:
I mean, the song is pretty repetitive so there probably isn’t a specific lyric that they will love more than others.
Libra – Baby It’s Cold Outside
Written by Frank Loesser. Performed originally by Ricardo Montalbán and Esther Williams.
Like Taurus, Libra is ruled by Venus, so naturally, they need to be paired with a love song. This song has attained a certain level of fame (and infamy) for its charming duet and coquettish lyrics. “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is perfect for the sweet yet indecisive ambivert, Libra. Also, it is worth mentioning that even though this song is a fun duet to sing at Leo’s office Christmas karaoke party, it hasn’t aged incredibly well.
Lyrics Libra will love:
“I wish I knew how Your eyes are like starlight now. To break this spell I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell”
“Gosh, your lips are delicious But maybe just cigarette more Never such a blizzard before”
Scorpio – Santa Baby
Written by Joan Javits and Philip Springer. Performed originally by Eartha Kitt.
This is an… interesting song, to say the least. I mean, Eartha Kitt, Madonna, and Michael Bublé have iconic renditions of this song. And it is super fun to sing. But it is hard to hear the sultry tone of the lyrics and not think that the singer is trying to seduce Santa Claus. And let’s be honest, if any sign was going to seduce Santa, you know it would be the passionate and sensual Scorpio. But let’s not talk about seducing Santa anymore.
Lyrics Scorpio will love:
“Think of all the fun I’ve missed Think of all the fella’s that I haven’t kissed Next year I could be just as good
If you check off my Christmas list”
“Come and trim my Christmas tree With some decorations bought at Tiffany’s I really do believe in you”
Sagittarius – Do They Know It’s Christmas Time?
Written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure. Performed by Band-Aid
This song’s deceptively upbeat tune coupled with its sobering lyrics make it the perfect Christmas song for the altruistic and ambitious Sagittarius. “Do They Know It’s Christmas Time?” will have their feet dancing at the Christmas party while their minds are thinking up ways they could help their fellow man. However, they may leave the Christmas party early to research charities after hearing the song.
Lyrics Sagittarius will love:
“But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones, At Christmas time it’s hard, but when you’re having fun”
“Feed the world Let them know it’s Christmas time again”
Capricorn – Silver Bells
Written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans. Performed by Bing Crosby and Carol Richards.
Capricorns are renowned for their ability to earn money, save money, and when the occasion calls for it, spend money. Though they can be quite frugal with their spending, they love spoiling their loved ones with gifts at this time of year. This song speaks to the cardinal earth sign’s delight in rushing home with the treasures they found for their family and friends.
Lyrics Capricorn will love:
“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas”
“Strings of street lights Even stop lights Blink a bright red and green As the shoppers rush home with their treasures”
Aquarius – Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer
Written by Johnny Marks. Performed by Gene Autry.
Aquarius is often seen as a misfit but they wear that title like a badge of honor. They do not like to conform to the norm and they are proud to stand out in a crowd. Does that sound like a certain reindeer we know? “Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer” will speak not only to Aquarius’ nonconformity but also to their compassion and bravery.
Lyrics Aquarius will love:
“All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names They never let poor Rudolph Join in any reindeer games”
“Then how the reindeer loved him As they shouted out with glee ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer You’ll go down in history'”
Pisces – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane. Performed by Judy Garland.
Sweet nostalgic Pisces often pines for the kind of holidays they had when they were children. They love the Christmas season and try to recapture the magic of their childhood every year even though it can be difficult for them. When they hear this song, it may make them cry, but it will also give them hope that next year all of their troubles will be out of sight.
Lyrics Pisces will love:
“Have yourself a merry little Christmas Make the Yuletide gay Next year all our troubles, will be miles away”
“Once again, as in olden days Happy golden days of yore Faithful friends who are dear to us Will be near to us once more”
Ophiuchus – Nothing For Christmas
Written by Sid Tepper and Roy C. Bennet. Performed by Shirley Temple.
Ophiucus is getting nothing for Christmas because they are not a real sign and therefore cannot receive Christmas presents. Nor will they be invited to Leo’s office Christmas karaoke party!
