Pick Your Friends by Sign

The art of bonding - astrologically!

If you've decided you need to widen your social circle (or fire your friends!), astrology can be a helpful guide. Just as some signs are more compatible as lovers, the same holds true for friends. While everyone is their own person, astrological influences tend to surface in some way, shape or form in all relationships - so it's nice when you know what you're getting into - or why you're over it!

As you know, each sign of the zodiac is associated with one of the four main elements of life: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. That's the best place to start looking when you astrologically size up a friend.

Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are super fun, adventurous pals. There is rarely a dull moment when Leo is in the spotlight, Sag is talking about your next mountain trek and Aries is committing you to the soccer league. These people tend to be energetic and active, with a need to express themselves. They can be very impulsive, outgoing and are usually not afraid to take risks. They are very attractive as friends, but beware because they can get you in trouble!

Aries friends, regardless of gender, tend to get along better with men
As a friend, they are warm and hospitable, high-energy and fun. They enjoy a bit of personal competition, which can get touchy because their ego requires that they be number one. They like life in the fast lane, are typically athletic and usually ready to go out on the town. Their quick temper and stubborn nature can be a handful at times, but they are loyal to their long-term friends.

Aries gets along best with: Other Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius and Pisces - moderately well with Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Friendships with Virgo and Scorpio tend to be challenging until the end.

Leos are warm and generous, outgoing and funny
However, they do come equipped with a rather large ego - one that needs to be fed. As a friend, they are loyal and giving, sincere and honest. They like routine, are usually successful themselves, and are more inclined to have successful friends. They can be self-centered and need their privacy, and aren't always the best at offering explanations for cancelled plans.

Leo gets along best with: Other Leos, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aries, Gemini, and Cancer - fairly well with Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus. Relationships with Capricorn and Pisces tend to require a bit more work than Leo likes to give.

Sagittarius is outgoing and upbeat, popular and warm
As a friend, they are protective and tend to take in strays… animals or people. They are very accepting, and see equality in all beings. Free spirited and prone to wandering, they may not be the best confidant, but they do see beauty in all things - mainly because they like to stick their head in the sand to anything unpleasant.

Sagittarius get along best with: Other Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Aries, Leo, Libra and Scorpio - moderately well with Pisces, Gemini, and Virgo. They often find less pleasure in relationships with Taurus and Cancer.

Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn tend to be very practical and stable friends that can last a lifetime. They are industrious yet patient souls who know how to set goals and work hard to achieve them. So if you need career advice, resumes written, honest relationship advice or someone to pick you up at 3am, you can count on an earth sign. But they will also tell it like they see it, so if you don't want to know the truth, don't hang out with a bull, a virgin or a goat.

Taurus friends are affectionate, reliable and strong of will and of character
As a friend, they enjoy people and the finer things in life. They don't like weakness in themselves or others, and will not hesitate to point it out. It takes some effort to gain the trust of a Taurus, but if you have and respect it, no better friend you'll need.

Taurus get along best with: Other bulls, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces and Aries - moderately well with Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. They have little patience when it comes to Libra and Sagittarius.

Virgo is intelligent and tidy, intellectual and kind
As a friend, they are helpful and giving, and prefer to keep things peaceful and serene. They are natural worriers, who are always willing to lend a hand, but have a bit of trouble asking for help or admitting when they are wrong. They may only have a handful of those whom they consider friends, but they surely have a list of acquaintances a mile or so long.

Virgo gets along best with: Other Virgos, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, Taurus, Cancer and Leo - fairly well with Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini. They tend to be overwhelmed by Aquarius and Aries.

Capricorns are loyal and kind, sincere and devoted
This sign will not desert a true friend. They are prone to testing their relationships, and sometimes overstep their bounds by trying to help or do good for someone that they care about. If a friendship goes wrong, they certainly can hold a grudge… but even an angry Capricorn will make good on their promises.

Capricorn gets along best with: Other Capricorns, Aquarius, Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio and Sagittarius - moderately well with Aries, Cancer and Libra. Gemini and Leo have a way of exhausting the Capricorn sense of duty and responsibility.

Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius tend to be highly communicative and intelligent. This makes them exciting as they can quickly grasp ideas and concepts. They definitely operate from a rational and thinking plane yet are spontaneous in their day to day activities. This makes them enjoyable to be around, but sometimes a little neurotic with a short attention span. Libras especially love to move on to the next party if the one they're at is not exciting enough.

Gemini loves adventure and anything lively, or fun
Even though it seems as if they know everyone, they tend to keep most people at a distance. If you make the cut, a Gemini is a loyal, kind and generous friend. Because the twins like things to be interesting, they know how to embellish a tale, and are drawn to theater and the arts. While they can be sympathetic, they don't dwell on the negatives of life, and expect others to do the same.

Gemini gets along best with: Other Geminis, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Aquarius, Aries and Taurus -  moderately well with Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Scorpio and Capricorn have a way of getting under their skin.

Libra enjoys life on the go, but always make time to keep in touch
They are loving and fair, and are unlikely to betray a friend or a confidence. They love the social scene, and the more lavish, the better! Full of life, they tend to show appreciation to those for whom they care for. At times, Libra can be jealous or needy, but the up-side of a Libra surely outweighs the bad.

Libra gets along best with: Other Libras, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Gemini, Leo and Virgo - fairly well with Capricorn, Aries and Cancer. They don't always relate to Pisces and Taurus.

Aquarius is fascinated by people in general
Although, they have many acquaintances that seem to come-and-go, Aquarius are friendly and non-judgmental, and will work to secure relationships with people whom they feel mirror themselves. It is an interesting journey with Aquarius as a friend, for they can be a bit eccentric or outright radical - and it can be hard to feel "close" to an Aquarian.

Aquarius gets along best with: Other Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius and Capricorn - moderately well with Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. They don't always seem to have time to fully embrace and understand those born under Cancer and Virgo.

Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are creative, imaginative and emotional. They seem to have a heightened intuition and can be quite empathetic to the people that surround them - making them understanding friends who know how to listen. They can bring an aesthetic into your life that you never imagined. But they can also be moody and unreliable.

Cancers are supportive, loving and protective
As a friend, they will give as much as you ask, but fully expect you to do the same. To a Cancer, the line of friend is often crossed, and a Cancer's friend becomes part of some big, extended family. The Cancer nature is good at feeling victimized, so this is a friendship that needs to be treated with care - but that is a small price to pay for knowing someone who will always be there.

Cancer gets along best with: Other Cancers, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus and Gemini - moderately well with Libra, Capricorn and Aries. They're not so great with Sagittarius and Aquarius.

Scorpios aren't always the most outgoing
They tend to carefully screen and evaluate those whom they invite into their circle of friends. If you make the cut, a Scorpio will expect nothing less than complete loyalty, and will give you the same. A Scorpio friendship is an interesting dance, as they will know (and protect) your secrets before you know their middle name.

Scorpio gets along best with: Other Scorpios, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer, Virgo and Libra - fairly well with Aquarius, Taurus and Leo. Aries and Gemini tend to be a little too chaotic for developing any long-term ties.

Pisces are friendly and loyal, humorous and scattered
While they may seem cool or aloof initially, once you know them, they are warm and caring. Pisces has as many friends as they do acquaintances, and their compassionate side and willingness to help often makes them a target for being taken advantage of. Pisces like to be needed, and can sometimes be needy, but a Pisces friendship is likely to span the test of distance... as well as years.

Pisces get along best with: Other Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn and Aquarius; moderately well with Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius. They usually find Leo and Libra to be a bit too selfish for lasting ties.
