Which zodiac sign is the most reliable? Which is the most fun? Discover the sign that can offer you the best friendship.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Carolyne Faulkner of Dynamic Astrology is renowned for her astrological readings, and you can find her in places like InStyle and Vogue. According to her, Aries is a sign that craves opposites in a best friend. Aries is an outspoken, active, and sometimes combative sign, so the natural opposite would be Libra. “Both are learning about change and peace,” says Faulkner, “and can teach each other. Libra struggles with change and Aries can’t live without it. Aries needs to cultivate more peace in their lives and Libra strives to keep it.” Because Aries and Libra have opposing qualities, though, some might prove to be too at odds with each other. That is why Aries and Aquarius often make for great friends: both are driven by excitement and a restless spirit.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
It is easy for a Taurus to lose their head, either in the clouds or to their temper. That is why this sign needs someone who can provide a reality check—such as Virgo. “Taurus is usually fiercely loyal and happiest with an honest Virgo on speed dial,” Faulkner asserts, “as they appreciate their truth and practicality.” Taurus will forever appreciate the help of their Virgo friends and show them great kindness in return. Learn your most attractive trait based on your zodiac sign.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Gemini is a sign that fits best with their own kind. They are giddy social butterflies who look for the same zest for life in their friends. “A Gemini prefers to hang with fellow air signs Aquarius and other Gemini to avoid boredom and routine,” says Faulkner. “A Gemini is content when life won’t stay the same, [but will be] exciting.” Don’t underestimate a Gemini, though. While they may be some of the ultimate party people, they also find excitement and fulfillment in intellectual activities. Their best friend needs to be able to keep up with (or even challenge) them on all levels.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Cancer is another sign that usually makes friends within their own group. Faulkner says, “They appreciate and value each other and will always find each other in a room.” Cancer’s emotional radar is exceptional, so it’s easy for them to figure out who they click with and who they don’t. “Cancer also forms interesting connections with their opposite sign, Capricorn,” she adds. “Both appreciate security and stability and the sanctity of family.” However, these two signs are opposites for a reason: A Capricorn isn’t nearly as sensitive.
