Compatibility between zodiacs is important, not only for romance but for friendships. Because let’s face it, friendships usually last longer! You’ll most likely find your best friends among your same element, but there are definitely some unlikely pairs…
1. Aries (March 21-April 19)
The first sign of the western zodiac, you have a ton of energy, and you’re going to need someone to match it. You’ll find your best friends among your fellow fire signs, such as Leo and Sagittarius. No surprise, you need to fight fire with fire. You’ll also get along with air signs, including Gemini and Aquarius. Fanning the flames – if you please.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Although you have many good qualities Taurus, being loyal and generous, you are known to be… stubborn. You’re not called the bull for no reason. You tend to be possessive, even when it comes to your friends. Because of this, you’ll find that other earth signs to be a good match, including Virgo and Capricorn. These are the friendships you can count on during hard times, they’ll never leave your side.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, you’re a wild card. Your adaptability means that you can make meaningful friendships with a number of signs. As an air element, you value communication, as do the other air signs: Libra and Aquarius. With these friendships, the conversation will never stop.
I hate to break it to you Gemini’s but you’re not always the best friend. You value a good time and you have no issue canceling plans if better ones come along. Be careful to maintain friendships with the people that have stuck around.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Known to be sensitive and maybe a little shy, you have a harder time opening up to someone. For you, making friends is a long process of building trust and understanding. Other water signs will understand this, making good friends you don’t always have to communicate with for them to know how you’re feeling. You’ll also find long-lasting friends in Taurus and Virgo, as they have similar principles and will understand your way of life.
Don’t be afraid to open up and make new friendships. There’s nothing wrong with being sensitive, any true friend will see that.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo the lion, king of the jungle, you have an immeasurable amount of confidence, and you need a friend who will constantly build you up, and your fire signs are right there to deliver. Adding the fuel to your flames, nothing can tear this friendship apart. You’ll also find good friends in Geminis, as both of your confidence and personality is off the charts, which could make for truly exciting friendship.
Be careful Leo, your friends will be there to keep your confidence high, but make sure you remember to return the favor.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, you’re known for being reliable and kind, you will find a good match in a Taurus. Their loyalty and sense of routine will be comforting to you, and their dependability will calm you even when you are too focused on work, or busy overthinking. Any other earth element will make a long-lasting friendship with you, as you will keep each other grounded.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you hate the feeling when someone doesn’t like you, but not to worry, you’ll find yourself at home among your fellow air signs – especially Geminis. Your communicative nature will ensure there is never a dull moment, you’ll never be able to stop talking to each other. You’ll also make a good match with Sagittarius, as trendsetters will have a blast together, never falling behind the curve.
However, when you need someone to set you straight Aries is there. Because of your indecisiveness, you’ll sometimes need a kick in the butt to make decisions, so it’s a good idea to keep an Aries around to motivate you.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
As a water sign, you feel your emotions deep, even if you might not express them. This means you need a friend who can understand you on a deeper level, and your fellow water signs definitely will. With them, you don’t have to explain how you feel (which is good because you never want to).
But watch out, you’ll find your deepest connection in a Taurus, for better or for worse. Your unwavering determination, loyalty, and ambition (not to mention jealousy) mixed with the same exact qualities of a Venus-ruled Taurus is a match made in heaven… or hell.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Your sense of adventure won’t make you travel far to find a good pairing between your fellow fire signs, Aries and Leo. Together, you are ready for the next big adventure, or equally, support each other on their own journey. Your optimistic and honest nature will support you and other fire signs through a life-long friendship.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, you’re pragmatic and sensible, you don’t usually go outside your comfort zone without due research, meaning you’ll find your best friends among fellow earth signs such as Taurus and Virgo, who share your same ideals. You’ll always look out for your friends, but make sure that you sometimes let someone else in charge, so you can focus on having fun!
You’ll find your emotional intensity matched with a Pisces, but make sure you aren’t simply gas lightening each other, find something you are both passionate about and this friendship can last a lifetime.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, you believe that the whole world is your friend, you get along well with almost everyone. But don’t sacrifice quality for quantity. You’ll find good friends in Aries, their energy is a breath of fresh air and will keep you on your toes. Meanwhile, a Sagittarius will help you to step out of your comfort zone. These signs will push you in ways you aren’t used to, which can make for exciting friendship.
Of course, your fellow air signs will be a safe bet. But remember Aquarius, the world isn’t black and white, and shouldn’t be when you’re looking to make friends. Don’t write someone off for having a different perspective than you do, they could be bringing something important to the table.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
My dear Pisces, the most sensitive of all zodiacs, you need a friend who knows what’s going on with you at all times. You’ll find compassion among your fellow water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, who will never make you apologize for your emotions. A Capricorn can also bring you some stability and structure, which you lack.
Try not to make too many sacrifices, your wellbeing is equally as important as anyone else’s. You need a friend who will bring you happiness and push you not to limit yourself.
There are many factors that go into a friendship, from personality, values, inherent qualities, and more. Your zodiac will not make or break friendships, but they can influence them. Making sure you pick a good friend as your life-long partner is a long process. But if you’re wondering why you and someone else simply aren’t clicking, maybe it’s your zodiac. Who are we to disagree with the universe?
