The Romantic Comedy You Should Watch This Summer, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Time for some summer love!

It’s summer, babes! And you know what that means: Sunshine warming your skin, nights under the stars, and the prospect of an earth-shattering summer love. I’m not saying you should stay inside all summer watching rom-coms, but if you have a night when you just want to cuddle up and feel butterflies, try these summer romantic comedies. Just look for your zodiac sign and I’ll tell you exactly what to watch (and where to watch it.)

Aries: Camp Rock (2008)


You don’t care how old you get, you will always love the idea of a fun summer camp romance. Are you Demi Lovato, the new kid proving that you can sing like the best of them? Or are you Joe Jonas, the bad boy relegated to teaching your fellow teens how to let loose on the stage? Watch Camp Rock on Disney+.

Taurus: Palm Springs (2020)


You want a love that transcends time. How about a Groundhog Day-esque time loop instead? The pair keep reliving the same summer day in Palm Springs and need to figure out a way to get un-stuck. Many consider Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti’s Palm Springs to be the best rom-com of the last decade. Watch Palm Springs on Hulu.

Gemini: Aquamarine (2006)

20th Century Fox

You want your summer rom-coms to be silly and absurd, thanks. In that case, check out Aquamarine, in which a mermaid comes on land to fall in love and prove to her father that romance transcends species.

Cancer: Mamma Mia! (2008)

Virgo: The Last Song (2010)

Walt Disney Studios

When Ronnie has to spend the summer with her estranged dad, she’ll do anything to push everyone away–including the hot boy who lives in town.

This is the second Nicholas Sparks movie on the list. Here, Katie is on the run and stays in a small town on the coast of North Carolina to hide away.

The secrets and life-changing love make this perfect for you, Scorpio. Watch Safe Haven on Max.

Sagittarius: How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998)

20th Century Fox

For you, the best summer romance is a vacation fling. In this classic rom-com, Stella is a single mom who’s stuck in a rut.
