The Piscean songstress celebrated her 35th birthday on February 20th. With Pisces season now in full swing, let’s celebrate Ri Ri (and her excellent Super Bowl half-time show) by pairing some of her iconic songs with the zodiac signs that vibe with them most.

Don’t forget to check your moon and rising as well as your sun signs. You can check your birth chart here.


Aries- Fire Bomb


Written and performed by Rihanna. Co-written by Brian Kennedy and James Fauntleroy.

Perhaps Rihanna was channeling her Aries moon, Venus, Jupiter, and rising placements when she wrote this song. The cardinal fire sign will love channeling their righteous anger as they shout the lyrics to this song at the top of their lungs.

Lyrics Aries will love:

“I just wanna set you on fire so I

Won’t have to burn alone then you

Then you’ll know where I’m coming from

Fire bomb”

Taurus- California King Bed


Written and performed by Rihanna. Co-written by Alex Delicata, Muni Long, Dru Brett, and Jermaine Jackson.

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet that governs our romantic inclinations and our aesthetic tastes. This may be why the wholesome hedonists who revel in their creature comforts, will adore this song about spending intimate time with their partner on a giant, comfy bed.

Lyrics Taureans will love:

“Just when I felt like giving up on us

You turned around and gave me one last touch

That made everything feel better

And even then my eyes got wetter”

Gemini- Love The Way You Lie Pt. 2


Written by Marshall Mathers, Alexander Grant, and Holly Haferman. Performed by Rihanna featuring Eminem.

Trigger Warning: this song deals with sensitive topics like domestic violence. If those themes are particularly hard for you to listen to, you may want to move on to your moon and rising sign songs. If you or someone you love is dealing with domestic violence click here or call 1-800-799-7233.

Geminis are known to be dualistic. And there is no song in Rihanna’s catalog that is more dualistic than this one. The mutable air signs will appreciate how the song switches from wistful and emotional to strong and powerful. Geminis are also known to be verbally expressive so they will appreciate the vivid imagery in the lyrics.

Lyrics Geminis will love:

“On the first page of our story

The future seemed so bright

Then this thing turned out so evil

I don’t know why I’m still surprised”

Cancer- Dancing In The Dark


Written and performed by Rihanna. Co-written by Mozella, Ester Dean, Mikkel Storleer, and Tor Erik Hermansen.

I paired this song with Cancer for a couple of reasons. Cancerians love to feel at home and they love others to feel at home. And this song was featured on the soundtrack for the film Home, which Rihanna starred in. I also paired this song with Cancer, because I know the moon children would love to dance in the dark.

Lyrics Cancerians will love:

“I wanna run wild in the middle of the night

Right under the moon, bodies glowing in the night”

Leo- Take A Bow


Written by Shaffer Smith, Mikkel Storleer, and Tor Erik Hermansen. Performed by Rihanna.

I can imagine Leos singing this to someone who had done them wrong. But  I can also imagine this song being sung very pointedly to Leos. Leos are known as larger-than-life and just a tad bit dramatic. They are also natural-born performers. So the fixed fire sign will love a song full of theatrical imagery.

Lyrics Leos will love:

“But now it’s time to go

Curtain’s finally closin’

That was quite a show

Very entertaining

But it’s over now

Go on and take a bow, oh”

Virgo- Work


Written and performed by Rihanna. Co-written by Jahron Brathwaite, Matthew Samuels, Allen Ritter, Rupert Thomas Jr., Aubrey Graham, Monte Moir.

It seems like Virgo’s work is never done. This song not only speaks to Virgo’s incredible work ethic but also speaks to their loyal nature. The lyrics tell the story of whose loyalty was taken for granted. The mutable earth sign can play this song to remind others that they are not to be trifled with. Plus, this song is just really fun to dance to, and I know you earth signs can bust a move.

Lyrics Virgos will love:

“I believed all of your dreams, adoration

You took my heart and my keys and my patience”

Libra- Hate That I Love You


Written by Ne-Yo, Mikkel Storleer, and Tor Erik Hermansen. Performed by Rihanna featuring Ne-Yo.

Libras often struggle with mixed emotions. So they will relate to any song that details the inner battle of wanting to hate a loved one whom they are angry with. Plus, Libras are all about balance, and since this song is a duet, it is able to balance the different perspectives of the two singers.

Lyrics Libras will love:

“But I hate it

You know exactly how to touch

So that I don’t wanna fuss and fight no more

Said I despise that I adore you”

Scorpio- S&M


Written by Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Sandy Wilhelm, Ester Dean, Britney Spears (remix). Performed by Rihanna.

Scorpios are not that bad, but they are perfectly good! As one of the sexiest and most sensual signs in the zodiac, the fixed water sign will enjoy running or dancing to this Rihanna classic. And you know that whips and chains excite you, Scorpio.

Lyrics Scorpios will love:

“Feels so good being bad

There’s no way I’m turning back

Now the pain is for pleasure

‘Cause nothing can measure”

Sagittarius- Desperado


Written and performed by Rihanna. Co-written by Mich Schultz, James Fauntleroy, Krystin Watkins, and Banks.

Deeeeeeesperaaadooo, why don’t you come to your senses… wait, that’s the wrong “Desperado” song. Sagittarians are known to be quite introspective. They are also known to be ruled by an overwhelming sense of wanderlust. So they will love this song for its broody lyrics about wanting to run away from everything while simultaneously being afraid of loneliness.

Lyrics Sagittarians will love:

“A man whose heart is hollow, uh

Take it easy

I’m not tryna go against you

Actually, I’m going witcha”

Capricorn- B**** Better Have My Money


Written and performed by Rihanna. Co-written by Jamil M. Pierre, Badrilla Bourelly, Jacques Webster, Kanye West, and Ebony Oshunrinde.

Rihanna was probably channeling her Capricornian Uranus, Saturn, and Neptune when she wrote this song. All earth signs are known to be fiscally conscious. And since Capricorn is the cardinal earth sign, they tend to be the most fiscally conscious of them all. So I imagine that this song will resonate with them in many ways.

Fun fact: when a person has three or more planetary placements in one sign, we call that a stellium. So Rihanna had a Capricorn stellium.

Lyrics Capricorns will love:

“Pay me what you owe me, don’t act like you forgot”

Aquarius- Umbrella


Written by Shawn Carter, Christopher Stewart, Terius Nash, and Kuk Harrell. Performed by Rihanna featuring Jay-Z

I have often compared Aquarians to storms, so it only makes sense that I would pair them with a song called “Umbrella.” But that’s not the only reason I paired the fixed air sign with this catchy tune. Aquarians are known to be quite compassionate, so a song about protecting loved ones from a metaphorical storm will resonate well with them.

Lyrics Aquarians will love:

“Said I’ll always be your friend

Took an oath, I’ma stick it out to the end

Now that it’s raining more than ever

Know that we’ll still have each other

You can stand under my umbrella”

Pisces- Diamonds


Written by Sia Furler, Benjamin Levin, Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen. Performed by Rihanna.

If anyone could find light in a beautiful sea it would be a Pisces. This song perfectly illustrates what it is like to be so in love with your partner that you are intoxicated by their very presence. 

Lyrics Pisces will love:

“Find light in the beautiful sea, I choose to be happy

You and I, you and I, we’re like diamonds in the sky”

Ophiuchus- Tom Holland’s Lip Sync to “Umbrella”


Though he can certainly move and make it rain, Tom Holland is not Rihanna. Just like Ophiuchus is not a real zodiac sign.
