This Is The Kind of Friend You Are, According to Your Zodiac Sign

Friends are the individuals you can rely on the most in your life. They’re the ones who encourage you when things get rough, never pass judgment on you, and, arguably, know you best. Friendships are an essential aspect of our mental well-being throughout our lives, but those bonds become even more vital as adults.

Our friends, like ourselves, have diverse strengths, from the one you contact when you need a shoulder to the one you go to have a good day out. And, as it turns out, our birth charts have an impact on how we act in our friendships. Our sun and moon signs influence portions of our personalities and which components of those personalities we’re more likely to share.

Because it’s more difficult to establish friends as an adult, learning how to make and keep the ones we care about becomes increasingly crucial. That’s why we’re taking signals from the cosmos to understand a little bit more about ourselves (and our pals). We spoke with astrologer Lisa Stardust, who described the type of friend based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21st-April 19th)

You have plenty of zeal and tenacity as a fire sign. Rams are, after all, zealous leaders. According to Stardust, you’re the sort to encourage and motivate your buddies by cheering them on. You’re confident in your abilities to form bonds with your pals and keep them close, constantly providing the excellent energy they require.

Taurus (April 20th-May 21st)

“Loyal to a fault, Tauruses never abandon a buddy in need and will always have their friends’ backs, no matter what,” Stardust adds. You’re a trustworthy buddy who will drop everything to answer a call or help someone you care about.

Gemini (May 22nd-June 21st)

You’re the type of fun-loving pal that is always eager to meet new people, but you only choose to grow close to a handful. “You don’t get too deep with many, but you always have astrology zodiac sign one ride-or-die bestie [for] whom you’ll do anything,” Stardust says.

Cancer (June 22nd-July 22nd)

You’re the zodiac’s most intrinsically maternal sign, and you’re both loyal and caring to your pals, with plenty of compassion and understanding. You’re an excellent listener who sincerely cares about your friends’ well-being.

However, as Stardust points out, you’re not afraid, to be honest with those close to you. “Cancers provide a shoulder to weep on, but their compassion may be a double-edged sword, as they will exploit your flaws to keep you in line.”

Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)

As a Lion who thrives in the spotlight, you prefer to hang out with others who share your interests. You’re looking for people who share your passion and intelligence and can keep up with your strong energy and sharp wit. But you’re also a generous friend, according to Stardust, and a Leo is a sign most inclined to brag about and flaunt their friendships on social media.

Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)

Virgo, you’re the go-to person for excellent guidance. Stardust says, “You’re fantastic at coaching and training [your] pals on how to solve challenges.” You won’t condemn your pals because of your keen analytical mind; instead, you’ll offer them reasonable solutions.

Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)

Libra, you have a knack for bringing people together. Your philosophy is “the more, the merrier,” and you enjoy being in the company of interesting people and engaging in exciting conversations. You’re often the glue that holds your best pals together. However, Stardust points out that while you crave friendship, you may be cautious about getting too close to your friends.

Scorpio (October 23rd-November 22nd)

Oh, fiery Scorpio, you only have so much patience for intensity, so “it’s all or nothing when it comes to your friendships,” as Stardust puts it. Friends that have earned your confidence and loyalty will be given your undivided attention and affection. 

Sagittarius (November 23rd-December 21st)

You’re the kind of friend who can always be counted on for a crazy night, despite your independence. “Friends summon you for an adventure,” Stardust explains. While you enjoy generating memories with your friends, Stardust claims you’re also skilled at delivering philosophical counsel, putting your curious personality to good use for your pal.

Capricorn (December 22nd-January 20th)

According to Stardust, Capricorns inspire their companions to attain greatness and success. So, if you’re going to the top, you’ll want your pals to join you. You’ll ensure that your buddies join you by inspiring them with your ambitious mindset.

Aquarius (January 21st-February 18th)

Aquarius is one of the zodiac’s most distinct signs, and you march to the beat of your drum. According to Stardust, you can be competitive and zealous with others, particularly your friends, but you are typically kind and generous. Despite being labeled as an introvert, people are drawn to your laid-back personality, making it easy for you to make new acquaintances.

Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)

Pisces are profound, emotional water signs. Thus they have a better understanding of their companions than most. “Until they aren’t,” Stardust continues, “Pisces are the most nonjudgmental friends.” “Just because they wave back and forth now and again doesn’t mean they don’t adore their besties.”
