The Steve Lacy song for every star sign: a cosmic guide


To celebrate Steve Lacy’s latest album, Gemini Rights and his only Australian headline shows at the Sydney Opera House this Jan – Feb, we thought we’d find the perfect Steve Lacy song for every star sign, not just Geminis. 

Sydney Opera House

Singer, songwriter, producer and all-round creative visionary, Steve Lacy is quickly becoming an important voice in music, drawing comparisons to the likes of Prince and Erykah Badu. 

Steve brilliantly taps into love’s wishy-washy nature on Gemini Rights. Like a typical Gemini, he fluctuates between longing and resentment for his former lovers, showing that parting ways in a relationship is never simple. Above all, he realises he needs to come into his own, exploring his sexual and racial identities along the way. 

Though the album is Gemini-centric, any star sign can relate to the themes Lacy explores while grooving to his funk, jazz, R'n'B and hip-hop laced songs.

Read on as we guide you through the cosmos and find the Steve Lacy song that best aligns with your zodiac.

Aries: ‘Helmet’

“I'm not for sale, man, what the hell?”

Aries are passionate, assertive and headstrong. They’re natural-born leaders, stepping up and getting things done when no one else can. ‘Helmet’ is 100% an Aries song with its assertive and confident lyrics, all about saying goodbye and ending a stale relationship. 

Taurus: ‘Playground’

“Two can play the game when it feels so right next to you”

Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, Taurus are as sensual as they come, which is why ‘Playground’ is the perfect song for the sign. The lyrics explore the physical acts of love, with a smooth, funky vibe provided by the instrumentals, not to mention Lacy’s sweet falsetto.

Gemini: ‘Mercury’

“Pulled the trigger, killed us both”

Being Lacy’s personal sign, this song is all about Geminis. Represented by the twins and ruled by the planet Mercury, Geminis are known for their duality and depth of character. An idea that Lacy plays with within the lyrics of the track.

Cancer: ‘Static’

“Cause I'm longing for somethin' secure”

Cancers, represented by the crab, are known for their emotional sensitivity, protectiveness and fondness for stability. ‘Static’ is all about searching for stability in the form of a new relationship and features mellow, chill instrumentals, perfect for a crab relaxing in their shell.

Leo: ‘Guide’

“I could be your guide, no, you gotta keep it under”

Being the king of the jungle comes with unbridled confidence and swagger, a trait Leos are known for. ‘Guide’ is a groovy, moving track that oozes with confidence and charisma.

Virgo: ‘Dark Red’

“Something bad is 'bout to happen to me”

Virgos are intelligent, analytical and detail-oriented. They’re incredibly perceptive and can read into all kinds of situations with scary accuracy. ‘Dark Red’ channels into that side of a Virgo, exploring the feeling of knowing something isn’t quite right.

Libra: ‘Bad Habit’

“I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me”

Represented by the forever-balanced scales, Libras are known for their charm, kindness and cooperation. However, they can also be indecisive, excruciatingly weighing out all the options. This song perfectly encapsulates that feeling, with Steve singing about missing an opportunity for love.

Scorpio: ‘Infrunami’

“You're the one I need”

Scorpios are passionate, determined and intense, ready to sting with all their might. ‘Infrunami’ is a song about letting out all that passion and trying to win a former lover back. Classic Scorpio move.  

Sagittarius: ‘Sunflower (feat. Steve Lacy)’

“Sunflower in the evening”

Sagittarians, represented by the Archer (often depicted as a centaur) are relentlessly optimistic, free-spirited and joyous. They’ve also got a great sense of humour. Sunflower is a breezy, sun-soaked song that sounds bright, bubbly and optimistic.

Capricorn: ‘C U Girl’

“But you're in college now and I'm about to go on tour”

For the ever-ambitious Capricorn, we’ve selected one of Steve’s earliest songs. Released in 2015, Steve has since taken the world by storm, a testament to his ambition and talent. 

Aquarius: ‘Flower Moon (feat. Steve Lacy)’

“Now’s the time to disappear”

Those born under the Aquarius sign are known for their fierce independence and rebellious spirit. ‘Flower Moon’ is about disappearing and going on an adventure, a great Aquarius anthem.

Pisces: ‘Sunshine (feat. Fousheé)’

“I still, I still love you”

Last but not least, Pisces are known for their extreme empathy and compassion, as well as their duality due to their representation of two fish swimming in opposite directions. ‘Sunshine’ explores the idea of love still remaining between two ex-lovers. 

Bring yourself and your zodiac personalities to Steve Lacy’s upcoming shows in the Concert Hall from 31 January - 1 February 2024. It’s set to be an iconic Opera House debut.
