A Playlist For … Entering Your Villain Era

fire isolated over black background

Mars is finally in retrograde, which means a lot of things. (Some say that if you thought Mercury retrograde was bad, just wait). But usually, Mars is closely associated with action, perseverance, libido and aggression, which is what I have been feeling the past couple of weeks. Tastes range from phonk to classic rock and rap to alternative. It will help you achieve your villain era. It will help you drown out your anxious thoughts or push you toward the best-unhinged workout session you’ve ever had. Pretend you’re in a velocity edit and jam out. This playlist screams the color red in the best and, perhaps, the worst way possible. It’s for the fearless, the passionate and the unapologetically angry.
