You may often hear about your romantic compatibility with someone based on their zodiac sign, but what about platonic compatibility? Are you and your bestie destined for each other? You’ll likely don’t need the stars to tell you the truth. But if you don’t currently have a buddy that you can experience the highs and lows of life with (which is very possible), read on to see what type of companions you should definitely keep around.
As a free thinking and analytical sign of the zodiac, it’s important for Aquarius to befriend those that also have a level of intellect and experience to share ideas with. Typically, those of this sign tend to become bored easily if they’re not offering or contributing their insights with others due to their desire to help and counsel others even when it’s not always needed.
Ideal best friends: Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Libra
The Pisces friend is extremely loyal, sensitive and humane; all the more reasons why others gravitate toward them. Their understanding nature makes it easy for them to listen to their friends’ problems and support them in the process. Pisces love seeing their friends excel emotionally, artistically and spiritually in life since they strongly resonate with these areas of their own life.
Ideal best friends: Capricorns, Cancerians, Scorpios, and Taureans
Much like its predecessor, an Aries is one of the most loyal friends a person could hope to have. On that token, they would only expect the same loyalty in return. Always active in all aspects of her life, this sign will feel connected to those who are also as exciting and adventurous as they are.
Ideal best friends: Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra
The Taurus strongly believes in the adage of quality over quantity when it comes to friendships. While they do enjoy meeting new people, they won’t make friends simply for the sake of making them. If you do, however, become friends with one, consider yourself lucky. Taureans will hang onto their friends to develop trust and a deep connection with them over time. For this reason, they will attract genuine people who will return the same loyalty and trust.
Ideal best friends: Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo, and Pisces
The Gemini has the gift of being able to see both sides of every situation; making them great mediators in their friendships. But unless the companionship is dynamic, they may lose interest. Because of this, they will mesh best with fellow air signs and fire signs that share their zest for life.
Ideal best friends: Libra, Aquarius, Cancer and Aries
Loyalty is something Cancers highly value in their friendships (in addition to their romantic relationships). It’s something that comes naturally for them. Cancers also have the ability to take a great interest in the lives of the people they care about; something that strongly makes people gravitate toward them. What’s important is that they receive the same care and attention from their friends in return as Cancers may not always be forthright about their emotions.
Ideal best friends: Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces.
If you’re friends with a Leo, there’s a good chance that you’ll be friends ‘til the end. The Leo does not take friendship lightly and will be there for you through thick and thin (even if it means self-sacrifice once in awhile). Though if the Leo is taken for granted, you may lose them forever.
Ideal best friends: Geminis, Sagittarius, Aries, and Libra
As the “perfectionist” of the zodiac, the Virgo carries that same sense of idealism when choosing her friends. It’s important to have a tough skin when it comes to being friends with a Virgo, who will hold nothing back in sharing her honest and (sometimes) critical truth. To them, being truthful and clear is essential to getting to the root of problems.
Ideal best friends: Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus, and Aquarius
Highly communicative and sociable, Libras excel in meeting new people and making friends. Their charm and lovable nature are what make them the social butterflies that they are. They also take a genuine interest in listening to other people and providing solid advice where they can, rather than listening to them for the sake of doing so.
Ideal best friends: Aquarians, Geminis, Leos, Arians, and Sagittarians
Advice from a Scorpio friend is probably the best you can count on; they are extremely intuitive and wise. They are very selective when it comes to making friends, but the few they have are loyal ‘til the end. But be careful not to cross them, as they can prove to be your worst enemy if betrayed.
Ideal best friends: Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, and Pisces
Sagittarians are fun to be around, but they also make many friends because of their helpful and supportive nature. They’re also fiercely independent, which is something they also hope to find in their friends as well.
Ideal best friends: Aries, Leo, Libra, and Aquarius
Capricorns make for very caring and protective friends, at times, almost patronizing. Bottom line is that they hate to see their friends in trouble. They also aren’t keen on second chances once betrayed.
Ideal best friends: Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus, and Virgo
