Horoscope_Lin-Manuel_Miranda_HR

Aries, Scorpio
"Cabinet Battle #1" — Hamilton
Aries and Scorpio, despite being signs of opposing elements (fire and water, respectively), you are both powerful forces of nature capable of leaving destruction in your wake. You share a feisty and competitive nature, and when it comes to standing up for what you believe in, you take no prisoners. We gave you Hamilton's Cabinet Battles because you're bold and unapologetic in speaking your mind, even if it means making a few lifelong enemies. (If the shoe fits, wear it.)

(written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, performed by Daveed Diggs, Christopher Jackson, Okieriete Onaodowan, and Lin-Manuel Miranda)

Taurus, Libra
"Me Siento Hermosa (I Feel Pretty)" — West Side Story (2009 revival)
Taurus and Libra, you're the most romantic signs of the zodiac, and you share a love of beautiful things. You're daydreamers at heart, and when you fall in love, you fall hard—your exuberance and self-confidence radiate out of you like sunshine. Much like West Side Story's Maria during "I Feel Pretty," when you get swept off your feet, others can't help but be carried along with you.

(music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Spanish translations by Lin-Manuel Miranda, performed by Josefina Scaglione, Kat Nejat, Danielle Polanco, and Jennifer Sanchez)

Gemini, Leo
"You're Welcome" — Moana
Look, you don't need us to tell us how charming you two are, Gemini and Leo. You have a dazzling gift for wordplay that leaves your audiences charmed by your wit and easily persuaded into doing your bidding. Your charismatic, fast-talking nature is perfectly matched to the showstopping Moana tune "You're Welcome," performed by trickster god Maui—because it never hurts to remind those around you when they're "face-to-face with greatness."

(written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, performed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson)

Cancer, Pisces
"When You're Home" — In The Heights
You feel your emotions deeply, which can lead you to crave authentic intimacy and vulnerability in relationships. That's why you're super tight with your inner-circle and prioritize family and home above all else. Your heart will flutter (but, doesn't it always?) hearing the affectionate and warm "When You're Home" from In The Heights, as Nina and Benny revisit the places and relive the memories that made Nina the person she is.

(written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, performed by Mandy Gonzalez and Christopher Jackson)

Sagittarius, Aquarius
"A Cover Is Not a Book" — Mary Poppins Returns
You're open-minded and free-spirited, ready to engage with new ideas and experience all that life has to offer. You're already out-of-the-box thinkesr, so of course you'd be game for a spontaneous adventure with Mary THEE Poppins, just like in "A Cover Is Not a Book." Not only will you be delighted by the song's whimsy and wonder, you'll appreciate the witty word play, energetic rhythm, and nods to P.L. Travers' original Mary Poppins books. Plus, it's all about looking beyond deceiving appearances—which syncs up perfectly with your inventive and perceptive thinking.

(written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, performed by Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda)

Virgo, Capricorn
"It's All Happening" — Bring It On: The Musical
As earth signs, plotting and putting a plan into action fuels you. You're not afraid to take charge—in fact, you prefer it that way. You recognize yourself in Danielle as she assembles the Jackson cheer squad for Nationals during Bring It On's "It's All Happening", because, let's be honest, you feel at the top of your game when you're in a leadership position. The high-octane energy perfectly captures how you feel when it's time to step up to the plate and push towards your next goal.

(written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tom Kitt, and Amanda Green, performed by Adrienne Warren, Taylor Louderman, Ariana DeBose, Gregory Haney, Dominique Johnson, Nick Womack, and company)
