zodiac signs who make the best friends

This bestie always has your back.

BFFs aren’t just friends, they’re everything you need in a friend. When someone is your bestie, they take on a lot of friend jobs: they’re there for you when you’re broken-hearted, when you need to let off steam, or when you just want to chill.

Your best friend has a shared history with you, so much so that they understand what's going on under the surface without you having to explain everything or reading your horoscope to them.

You don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not with a best friend or put on a brave face. You can see them when you’re feeling like crap or when you know you’re slaying everything.

Now, it’s not to say that casual friends have no place in our lives, but they may only be in them for a limited period of time or just for certain moments. What separates a tried and true best friend from other friends is their how they care for you, even when you mess up big time; they're always there for you, even if it’s not convenient for them. They make your friendship a priority.

Not every friend is going to be your best friend, just like not everybody is going to like you. You need to treasure and appreciate your best friend because not everyone is lucky enough to have one, especially since not everyone has it in them to be a true friend.

With that, here are the zodiac signs who make the best friends and why their bond can't be broken.


No one cares more about their friends than a Cancer individual. They're extremely faithful and they give and give without expecting anything in return. They're wired to be loving and protective. Besides always coming through for their friends and always being there, Cancers show the depth of their caring in creative and unexpected ways.

It's not surprising that Cancers have incredibly long-lasting friendships. Both Cancer and Sagittarius like to share their secrets and their deepest philosophical theories. Sagittarians help Cancers to get out their shell and try new things and meet new people.

A Gemini might get the details wrong when they're meeting a friend for coffee or a meal, but once they get there, the Gemini individual will give their friend their undivided attention. Geminis aren't just caring, they know exactly what to say to make you feel better and they give excellent advice.

Geminis are extremely supportive and when one is your bestie, you'll really feel as if someone has your back. On top of all that, Geminis are fun to hang out with and can make any experience better. Capricorns are good for Geminis because they help ground them. Both signs are supportive, loyal, and fun.

There is no friend more loyal and dependable than a Capricorn bestie. They're the best friend, the parent, and caregiver wrapped up into one person. Capricorns are patient when their friends screw up and they will do anything they can to fix the situation. Capricorns are wise beyond their years and have the biggest hearts.

Capricorns take friendship very seriously and they don't go into it lightly. Once you're friends with a Capricorn, it takes a lot for them to let you go. Sagittarius are a good friendship match with Capricorns because they add some excitement and pizzazz to Capricorn's life. Sagittarians encourage Capricorns to break out of their comfort zone and see what fun things life has to offer.

Taurus are incredible friends. If their friend confides in them, there's no way that Taurus is breaking that confidence. If their friend needs them, no matter for what or when, Taurus is right there for them. There's no other person who is as solid a friend as Taurus.

A Taurus bestie will look out for their friend until the end of time and will never betray them. Pisces are incredibly kind-hearted and would never try to harm another person, which is exactly the kind of friend that Taurus needs. Taurus are honorable and won't take advantage of Pisces.

Pisces and Cancer make great best friends because of how caring, compassionate, and kind they are. They both make their friends feel as if they're special for having a friend like Pisces. They are selfless to the extreme, and while they can be very intuitive about other people, they may have difficulty with what they're feeling.

Pisces are creative gift givers and it's not unlikely for them to either find the perfect gift for their friend or make it. Cancers are the truest of true-blue friends which is exactly what Pisces need as they can sometimes fall prey to those people who don't have their best interest at heart.

Virgos make for great BFFs because they're extremely reliable and trustworthy. They generally don't throw their friends under the bus or sacrifice them for them own gain. The Virgo individual will do whatever they can to help their friend and make things right.

Virgos are the fixers of the broken, and they tend to know all the answers. Virgos are there when their friends need them and they're there when they don't.

While Gemini may not be as reliable as Virgo, they are their match intellectually. Geminis help Virgos to loosen up and to see the big picture. It's almost impossible to have fun if you're too busy focusing on the small details to enjoy it. Geminis help Virgos to relax and just chill.

Leos are the most optimistic, energetic, and fun friend around. They're very loyal, helpful, and caring, so it makes sense that when choosing a bestie, Leos often go with individuals born under the sign of Taurus. When a Leo is your BFF, you feel special, especially since Leos usually have a lot of people who want to be their friend.

Leo besties will always come through for their friends and will prove their love for them again and again. When Leos and Taurus say best friends forever, they mean it — unless their friend does something that seems disloyal or shady, then they'll dump them. Both of these signs really enjoy nice things and luxury items, so it's not surprising they enjoy retail therapy together.

Libras make good besties — they're fair, romantic, and tactful. However, Libras can get resentful, especially if they feel like someone is disrespecting them or not being loyal. Instead of confronting problems in the relationship head-on, Libras tend to stew about it until there's an inappropriate blow-up.

When a Libra loses their cool, they're a terrible friend. Luckily, they tend to give over things quickly and will want to make up, but they can be somewhat volatile. Leos and Libras make great friends because they're both able to see past each other's differences and have a good time together. Leos and Libras entertain and make each other laugh constantly.

Scorpios are intense — one moment they're the best friend you could ever want, and the next not so much. If Scorpio thinks they've been betrayed or lied to or in any way humiliated, they can get scarily wrathful which is why they get along so well with the sometimes blunt Aries. Scorpios are powerful, especially ones who think that they've been made a fool of and who want revenge.

As long as everything is cool, Scorpio is a great friend, but when it's not, watch out because things can get ugly fast. Aries help get Scorpio out of their heads and encourage them to go out and do things rather than brood.

Aries want to be the best bestie in the land; they're competitive about everything even when it comes to friendship. Aries means well, they really do, but they can be hypersensitive and take things the wrong way. Aries are a prime example of someone who can dish it out but can't take it. They tend to say things without thinking, but if someone does that to them, they can get confrontational in a very negative way.

This is why Libra is such a good friend for them because Libra works hard to keep the peace and would never want to rile Aries up. Aries don't hold on to animosity for very long, so if you can just ride it out after a fight, they'll soon be back to their fun selves. While Libra doesn't enjoy the blunt side of Aries, they do love Aries' energy and lust for life.

Aquarius make for good friends; they genuinely like people, they're interesting and creative, it's just that with a BFF, you want someone who can handle it if you lose your sh*t and have an emotional breakdown. Heavy-duty emotions are extremely difficult for Aquarius to handle and one of their bestie duties is to be there for their BFF when they're emotional.

Aquarians like to have lots of friends, and Scorpios prefer just having a few close friends, but for whatever reason, these are two zodiac signs who make the best friends. Both are willing to put their energy into making a friendship last and take the responsibilities of friendship seriously.

Sagittarius are good friends and they make friends very easily. They can be quick to proclaim that someone is their BFF, but you have to wonder if that means the same to them as to everybody else. Sagittarius don't enjoy complicated friendships and when those friendships start to have difficulties, Sagittarius gets very uncomfortable. They'd rather that a relationship be lighter and less deep. It isn't that they don't care, it's just that they get impatient, and sometimes they can be tactless in the wrong situation.

Only other Sagittarians get why a Sagittarius is leary of restrictive friendships. They don't feel as if they have to follow any traditional rules of friendship. They may not see their friends for years and when they do, they pick up where they left off.
