Music is known to be a mood booster or energy shifter. It also can be a way to connect with people. The deeper meanings behind the messages translated through artists create an atmosphere that allows listeners to block out the outside world and use their own playlists to reflect within.

Songs are a sacred art form, which makes playlists as important when listening to music. Creating playlists takes time and having only one is not enough. Music streaming services, like Spotify or Apple Music, have caught on and incorporated specially crafted song collections based on mood, genre, music trends and more.

Playlists’ curations also extend into astrology, where songs are determined by the characteristics of a person’s zodiac sign. During Women’s History Month, the celebration of women and their contributions to society, including women in music, are at the forefront. Switch up your playlist with these 12 inspirational songs from women, each carefully selected to align with the unique traits of your zodiac sign.
