Each zodiac sign represents a complementary quality in the area of friendship, but do you know with which sign you form the perfect friendship? Here we explain what your virtues as a friend are and with which signs you have greater compatibility in terms of the astral aspects.
Fire signs are dynamic and vital, and they usually bring joy and action to their friends. The earth signs, on the contrary, offer security and stability. Water signs give love and protection, while air signs find an intellectual connection and a suggestive exchange of ideas.
Furthermore, each planet that governs the twelve signs of the zodiac has particular aspects that complement the virtues in friendship, and connections between signs are naturally established from those aspects. Find out below each signs' compatibility.
In the zodiac, ideal units are established between signs that complement the qualities of all of them in friendship. Pay attention to which signs make the perfect match with yours.
In friendship, Aries is an energetic and fun sign who is always surrounded by friends. In their world, friends are ideal companions to face all kinds of adventures with the boldness with which Arians usually live life: acting without thinking.
That's why they form a perfect society with Gemini. The sign of the twins is mischievous and has a youthful spirit that encourages them to do all kinds of activities for fun. They're not very constant, but they want to try everything, and that makes them the ideal adventure partner for Aries: they both need the adrenaline to feel alive.
The dynamic, rebellious and revolutionary world of Aquarius also fits the profile of Aries as the ideal friend to never get bored with. The water signs, on the other hand, seem very dull to them, as does Capricorn's excessive rationality.
The stability and sensitivity of Taurus combine beautifully with the security tendency and the empathic and affective capacity of Cancer and Pisces. With them, they feel that they can fulfil their needs for affection and sensuality while finding a space with little risk, where loyalty and honesty ensure the consolidation of a solid friendship.
The methodical character of Capricorn and Virgo also attracts Taurus, which develops a productive friendship with these people. The sign of the bull is very creative and with a great artistic sensibility, so they can also get on well with Libra.
On the other hand, the more passionate signs like Aries or Leo tend to clash with them, because Taurus is very stubborn, and these signs are too dominant. Taurus also distrusts too volatile signs such as Gemini and Aquarius.
The air of Gemini cradles the flames of Leo and Aries, and fuels their fire, so between them, as with Sagittarius, perfect friendship with great dynamism is formed. Together they do many activities and undertake unforgettable adventures, and although Gemini gets tired quickly of each new occurrence, it is an inexhaustible source of laughter and good humour.
The challenges and daring of Aquarius, which carries in its genes constant transformation and change, seduces irresistibly this unstable sign.
Virgo and Capricorn make Gemini yawn with their lessons of constancy and their obsession with discipline. The depths of Pisces and Scorpio are also too vague for the childlike and carefree world of Gemini. When a sign is too stable, they move away and become reluctant.
The depth of Cancer needs anchoring points and therefore, stable signs that are as safe as those of earth, especially Virgo and Capricorn. With Virgo, Cancer learns the values of discipline and method and admires their constancy and willpower. Goats and crabs exchange great sweetness in their strong bonds of friendship.
The speed with which the fire signs live and act often makes Cancer dizzy, and it is complicated for them to trust these signs, especially Aries and Sagittarius. With Libra, they fill their artistic concerns and find a suggestive connection with their sensitivity, but their resentment and mood swings are unbearable.
Taurus is stable, and they offer Cancer security. However, they are too stubborn, so when what they want is tenderness and comprehension, they look for their water partners: Scorpio and Pisces.
Leo knows how to resist Libra's mood swings because it helps them balance their inner world: the perfect companion to soothe their ego. Both share similar aesthetic tastes and are attracted to the same hobbies, which makes them compatible.
The fire signs are too redundant and not very submissive; this opens a conflict of vanities in which no one can impose their desire to be the protagonist: Aries appears to be especially unbearable for them. On the other hand, Aquarius knows how to recognise the lion's virtues and professes the same admiration as Gemini, which they find charmingly amusing.
Capricorn and Taurus are big-headed and not very attractive to Leo's needs, who is better suited to sincere and generous signs like Pisces and Cancer.
Virgo is a happy, loyal and hard-working sign, but all this potential can disappear because of their pathological mistrust. For this reason, so Virgo can show themselves how they are, they need to connect with signs that easily open up their heart and that combine loyalty with affection and protection, like Cancer and Scorpio.
The signs less compatible with Virgo are Gemini and Aquarius, who Virgo sees with suspicion because of their volatile and changing character. Virgo can't stand that Gemini doesn't take anything seriously, and finds Aquarius' rebelliousness frivolous and counterproductive.
On the other hand, the signs of fire complement their excellent energy flow, that constancy at work that also brings them closer to the willing spirit of Capricorn.
The obsession of the Libra natives in life is always to seek the midpoint, the balance that leads them in a natural way to the signs of the earth, and especially the sensual Taurus, also ruled by Venus, and the sweet and passionate Capricorn.
But the most compatible signs for Libra are the Leo and Sagittarius dreamers, whose strength is irresistible to the needs of a sign as passionate as Libra. With Leo, they discover the light that illuminates the path, and with Sagittarius, they undertake journeys and adventures that bring fun and dynamism to their life.
But as Libra is a whimsical and mood-changing sign, they don't get on well with Cancer, which is also very demanding in life. Other signs like Pisces and Scorpio are too obtuse for them.
The dark world of Scorpio connects in a very special way with the magic of Pisces. The two water signs, besides exchanging affection, love and understanding, enter hand in hand into a world of fantasy that protects them from conflict and cruel reality.
But when Scorpio needs to leave their particular world, they find in Aries and Sagittarius two invitations to adventure that they find exciting. Gemini's devilish cunning complements their love of exploration, something that also brings them closer to the hobbies of a sign like Virgo. Passion and energy can flow best with Capricorn.
In contrast, the least compatible sign with Scorpio is Aquarius: its mistrust and lack of stability alienate the scorpion, who also does not feel seduced by the egomaniacal Leo.
As a sign of fire, Sagittarius is very independent and therefore not very fond of possessive signs like Leo and Aries: Sagittarius deeply hates their willingness to lead. But also Pisces or Cancer are insufferable to them because they need constant attention.
On the other hand, Aquarius is a very suggestive sign for Sagittarius, because it pushes them to constant change and shares their thirst for adventure. Gemini is another fun sign that enters the game of Sagittarius by satisfying their need to release adrenaline. However, sometimes when they need a little more stability, they lean towards the energetic righteousness of Capricorn.
Air signs that facilitate the exchange of ideas and promote intelligence are very attractive to Sagittarius, especially when it comes to wandering off in more abstract ways.
This rather solitary and independent sign that has work and material things as an obsession in life needs someone disciplined and rational by their side. Virgo is a sign that is very compatible with the regent Saturn, who admires their discipline, order and planning with which this sign structures its vital priorities.
But these people also have their emotional needs, and the problem with Capricorn is that they give up intense relationships because of fear of being hurt. In this case, the protective mantle of Cancer and the empathy and sensitivity of Pisces make them feel safe, and they can establish with them sincere and very long-lasting relationships.
The worst companions for a Capricorn are the fire signs, and especially Aries, whose impulsive and reckless character generates a lot of distrust in the goat.
The originality and unpredictability of Aquarius find their perfect match in Gemini, a sign that shares the intelligence of the air element and its fun and changing character. Another sign that is highly compatible with Aquarius is the impulsive Aries, who like the daring Sagittarius fills their world with exciting and unforgettable adventures.
When Aquarius needs a more rational relationship, Libra manifests itself as an ideal partner because both share ideals and values. In contrast, Taurus is traditional and conservative, something that clashes head-on with the humanism and avant-garde of Aquarius.
In general, the water signs see the Aquarian's longing for freedom and transformation as a threat to their stability, so they do not usually get along well.
Emotion, tenderness and dedication are incompatible with rationality, detachment and selfishness, and this opposition makes Pisces antagonistic to signs such as Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius.
As a water sign where feelings overflow reason, Pisces finds a great connection with the passionate Virgo and Capricorn: if there is any sign patient enough to break their mistrust and win their friendship this is Pisces, who with their great empathy will manage to establish a sincere and loyal relationship for life.
Pisces is also a sign endowed with great creativity that needs to leave its hiding place sometimes to find the light of inspiration, and in this sense, Leo is their best guide. Both will learn to combine their games of domination and submission to find the ideal union. Taurus gives Pisces the confidence and security to dream together.
