Taurus (April 20–May 20): Your Hometown
Gemini (May 21–June 20): You’re Wrong About
Geminis are curious, funny, and analytical, and You’re Wrong About has those exact same qualities.

Geminis will love the podcast’s wide range of topics and the hosts’ lighthearted charisma.
Cancer (June 21–July 22): Modern Love
For sensitive Cancer souls, The New York Times‘s Modern Love is a match made in heaven. Based on the recurring column of the same name, each episode of the podcast tells a unique love story. Sometimes it’s romantic, sometimes it’s familial, sometimes it has a happy ending, and sometimes it doesn’t. So get totally in your feelings, Cancers, and listen to this one while lying on your bed and staring at the ceiling.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22): Spectacle: An Unscripted History of Reality TV
For bold, drama-loving Leos who serve up some major main character energy in your own lives, Spectacle: An Unscripted History of Reality TV will provide a look into the history behind your favourite reality shows.

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22): Death, Sex and Money
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct.22): My Favorite Murder

The popular podcast has the mystery and charm Libras crave.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21): Cult Podcast
For our Scorpios, get ready to fall deep down the rabbit hole with Cult Podcast, a weekly podcast about, well, cults. Hosts Paige Wesley, Armando Torres, and Andrea Guzzetta take humorous deep dives into both famous and lesser-known cults and their leaders. Sure, Scorpios have a reputation for cleverness and the ability to influence others, but maybe consider saving the cult leading for the podcast, OK?
Sagittarius (Nov.22–Dec. 21): 2 Dope Queens
As a Sagittarius, you might be thinking that there are more exciting, spontaneous things to do than listen to podcasts, but 2 Dope Queens is an adventure in itself.

Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): The Daily
Responsible and reliable Capricorns will like the steady predictability of The Daily. The New York Times host Michael Barbaro gives you all the news you need to know in 20 minutes, five days a week. Starting each morning with this engaging news podcast will keep you sticking tight to your disciplined schedule.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18): Culture Gabfest
Aquarians are artistic and intelligent, and they tend to earn a bit of a reputation for their contrarian beliefs. When listening to Culture Gabfest, in which Slate‘s critics debate current culture, you’ll love hearing opposing opinions about everything pop culture, ranging from Olivia Rodrigo to White Lotus. Going head-to-head with the hot takes on this show will turn you into the culture critic you know you can be.
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20): The Heart
Pisceans looking to feed their empathetic, creative nature, look no further than The Heart. Kaitlin Prest’s podcast is an “audio art project” about intimacy and humanity. The episodes are deep and personal stories about topics including sexuality, race, and love. Get ready to get deep.
