The stars know if you're a true friend.

We all want to be a good friend — someone who's loyal, can keep a secret and is always there when needed. But being a good friend can be challenging. No one can be the perfect friend and even if we try, we can fail.

Since there are different degrees of friendship, with everything from a work friend to a best friend, we give varying types of friendship. You and your friend from second grade may share a history, but you might not share the most intimate details of your current life with her.

Some people consider their family their best friends, while others have friends they consider family. You might be a good friend to one person and a totally toxic one to the next. You might not know what kind of friend you are, but your zodiac sign can give you a clue

Aries (March 21 - April 19): The independent friend

As an Aries friend, you're devoted, loyal and will stand up for your friends. However, sometimes you like to mix things up and do something rebellious and different from everybody else.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): The true blue friend

You're stable, solid and listen (without judgment) to your friends. But that's not to say that you aren't tough and will cut right through the bullsh*t when you need to.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): The friend who lives to party

Gemini, you're the kind of friend who's always up to go to a party and who ends up being the most popular person there. 

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): The emotional friend

Your family and friends are at the top of the list of the most valuable things in your life. You live your life by your gut instincts and if you suspect a friend is badmouthing you, you will cut them out of your life forever.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): The exhausting friend

Leos always want everything to be about them and will do outrageous things to ensure they're the center of attention, like talk loudly to get noticed.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): The work friend

Virgos tend to keep their emotions in and stay focused on the task at hand. Virgos are so work focused that work friends are almost the only friends they spend any time with.

Libra (September 23 - October 22): The "addicted to social media" friend

Libras take the whole friend thing on Facebook very seriously. They always make sure to like, comment and wish you a happy birthday. They consider each friend request and won't just arbitrarily accept it.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): The friends with benefits friend

Scorpios are very passionate and sexual, and have no problem blurring the lines between a friend and a sex buddy. They also have a very imaginative and dirty mind.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): The fearless adventurer friend

Sagittarius love to travel, try new things, and keep their friends laughing and fascinated with all the stories of their adventures.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): The wise mentor friend

Capricorns are very steady and knowledgeable. They're the friend people go to when they crave stability and need someone to advise or explain things.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): The truly unique friend

Aquarians are different from everybody else, but that's what makes them a great friend. They're unorthodox, unconventional, and often have a very eclectic collection of friends. Everybody needs an Aquarius in their squad.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): The good person friend

You've heard the expression "Mate for life?" Well, a Pisces friend is for life; they're that devoted to a friend. They put everybody before themselves and are just plain nice.
