What does someone’s zodiac sign mean?

There are 12 different types of zodiac signs. Each sign belongs to one of the four elements: air, fire, water, or earth. Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are water signs and are known for leading with their emotions. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are fire signs and are typically very passionate and sometimes can be volatile.

Earth signs are known for being grounded and realistic, and Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn make up the three earth signs. Air signs are quite social. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the three air signs.

A person’s zodiac sign is also known as their sun sign. In astrology, a person’s sun sign represents their identity and basic personality traits.

There are two other major signs that come into play in astrology, and that is a person’s moon sign and rising sign. A moon sign represents how a person processes their emotions and inner feelings, while someone’s rising sign is their outward first impression or how they are perceived.

Kacey Musgraves is a Leo

Musgraves was born on Aug. 21, 1988. In the zodiac, anyone born between July 23 and August 22 is a Leo. This makes Musgraves a Leo, and given her captivating persona and success in the music industry, this totally makes sense.

As a Leo, Musgraves can be charismatic, dynamic, creative, dominant, and prideful. According to, Musgraves’ moon sign is in Sagittarius.

This means two of Musgraves’ most important signs are fire signs. People who have a Sagittarius moon sign are optimistic and often times seek out change and freedom.

Because Musgraves’ birth time is understandably unknown to the general public, her rising sign cannot be calculated.

Kacey Musgraves brought change to country music

Country music oftentimes features tropes of nostalgia, patriotism, heteronormative relationships, and drinking. With her songs, Musgraves sings of accepting LGBTQ relationships, casual sex, and other ideals not typically found in country music.

“I think throwing the rebel card out there is really cheap,” Musgraves told the Wall Street Journal in 2014. “The things I’m singing about are not controversial to me, I don’t push buttons to push buttons. I talk about things that have made an impression on me that a lot of people everywhere are going through.”

Musgraves has also pushed against the lack of representation in country music.

“Where are country artists of colour? Where are the country artists that represents the LGBT+ community from a first-person perspective?” Musgraves said in an interview with The Independent in 2018.

She continued, “Why can’t I just be a musician, or an artist, or a singer-songwriter? No, it’s always ‘female musician’, ‘female singer-songwriter’, and it’s interesting because they just don’t do that for men.”

Because her sun sign and moon sign are both fire signs, it is only natural that Musgraves is a trailblazer in her own right.
