Signs Who Make the Best Friends

Tag Your BFF — These Are the Signs That Make the Best Friends, Ranked

True story: when I truly connected with one of my best friends, we squealed so loudly and at such a high pitch that our then-boyfriends, now-husbands were so dismayed, they backed out of the room in awe. We were just so excited to find someone who shared similar experiences and knew that George was the best Beatle, all while bonding over wine. Good friends, in short, are a pretty special and rare occurrence. Maybe in your lifetime, you get a handful, and if you're really lucky, they'll be there forever. Who we are as people is a pretty special mixture of our individual memories and personality memories speared on by astrology. Some signs, like some people, make better friends due to an unforeseen connection to the zodiac. Here we've ranked the signs, from best to worst, so you can know which ones make the best friends.

  1. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) The fact that Libra is represented by scales and is notoriously impassioned about all things being fair and just is only part of what makes this an excellent sign for a great friend. Firstly, that desire for equilibrium is about more than just keeping the peace, but that they also strive to help others find their way and be the best versions of themselves. Everyone should have a best friend who really is looking out for them, and that is a Libra.
  2. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) This fish sign is known for being a tricky one to understand, but at the heart of this sign is someone who is compassionate, loving, and exceedingly helpful at dreaming up plans for the future. While there is the slight tendency to become moody and disappear into their own imaginative world, on the whole, this is a sign of love and comfort, thus making them a great friend.
  3. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) For the right person, Sagittarius makes an amazing friend. This worldly sign appreciates learning new things, travelling, and encouraging, and is exceptionally loyal. However, they also have the ability to very honest, which, depending on your personality and their level of truth-telling, might be hard on some relationships. With a Sagittarius, it's best to take the good with the bad and just accept their bad days as part of the ride.
  4. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) OK, sometimes Virgo can be a tad-bit self-serving and a little bossy. I get that. However, this sign is ruled by Mercury, meaning that they are supreme communicators. Their willingness to be honest and loyal, combined with their extreme sense of dedication to their loved ones, makes this a sign to love. If you have a task and need help from a BFF, Virgo is your go-to sign for all things planning-related.
  5. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If there was one word to describe a Capricorn best friend, it would be devoted. Capricorns are your ride-or-die, in part because they don't get close and open up with a lot of people. Their quiet nature, exacerbated by their occasional tendency to dislike small-talk and anyone perceived as being lazy, means that they don't have a huge group of friends. Yet, once close, Capricorns are family- and friend-oriented and would do anything for those they love.
  6. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Cancer signs are definitely hit or miss when it comes to friendships. Will this crab-ruled sign does have a hard shell that can be tough to crack, they also can be extremely vulnerable and emotional. They love their good friends deeply, but to get to that spot, a friend can't push them too hard or too fast. Cancer signs do things in their own way and their own time, but with a little love and patience, you'll get to experience how joyful this sign can be.
  7. Gemini (May 21-June 20) It should be no wonder that Gemini, in all of their charming ways, can also be very good friends. They love to socialise, especially if they are at the centre of the circle, but it takes a lot to corner a Gemini into a deep and meaningful one-on-one relationship. If you befriend a Gemini, recognise that there will be some ups and downs to this occasionally two-faced sign.
  8. Taurus (April 20-May 20) This bull of a sign is content to just hang out and relax, making them a great option for a best friend. They'll never ask too much of another person and are supportive and dedicated to their loved ones. However, if you're looking for a sign to go on adventures with, this is not it. They relish being at home and keeping things constant, so deviating from that at all throws their whole world off.
  9. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Scorpios are incredibly protective and loyal, even dangerously so. They're not afraid to help friends out and they would do anything for the ones they love, and if you're a best friend, you get the benefits of that. Besides the fact that they can become overly argumentative, they have a real problem relinquishing control. Their desire to be in charge makes it hard for some friendships to survive unless everyone is understanding of Scorpio's ways.
  10. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Leo is loyal passionate and very loyal — would you expect anything less from a ruling lion? But just as they are loyal, they also are usually interested in their own needs first and have a hard time holding their tongues. Being friends with a Leo means that others need to adjust and have a thick skin.
  11. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) This sign really likes to go with their own flow, which is problematic for getting them to commit to social events and functions. While they are kind, supportive, and nurturing, they are also more interested in working together as a group rather than focusing on any one person.
  12. Aries (March 21-April 19) Ruled by the ram, this sign sure does like to play the stubborn role. While this could serve in your favour as a best friend, since they'll move heaven and Earth to help you out, if you're ever in disagreement, it could be a while until you've made up. This is an energetic sign where they are constantly competing to be the best, so be careful you don't get in this ram's way.
