How Friendship With You Boosts Self-Esteem Of Others, According To Astrology

We all need a self-esteem booster in our lives and friendship is one way that we know we are loved and accepted no matter how bad the day makes us feel.

We’re all beautiful in our own way, and depending on which zodiac sign you are in astrology, your loveliness comes out uniquely as a friend.

The confidence you radiate should be your strongest and most powerful feature. The way you display your self-confidence differs depending on who you are — and the friends you keep around can boost your self-esteem! 

While you can literally have a high sense of self with major confidence in literally anything, self-love is the ultimate superpower that each zodiac sign has the potential of feeling.

There are ways to improve self-esteem, so you can feel your best and help your friends see the best in themselves, too. You already do it without realizing it. Just ask any of your friends. They know. 

To have self-confidence is to be fearless. Trust your intuition, and be unapologetically yourself. Once you are able to muster that confidence and make it stick, you become unstoppable. 

This confidence can come out through the clothes you wear, the way you view life and yourself, and even by how generous your hearts is.

Body image can be a sticky topic, because something others may find desirable about our body, may not be what you like about yourself. And, that’s okay.

Loving all that you are is a process. And for some zodiac signs, it’s easy; but for horoscopes born with more sensitive personality types, it can take a bit of time. 

Some zodiac signs radiate self-confidence more than others at birth,(ahem, Leo and Scorpio) especially when it comes to being comfortable in your skin.

Other signs have strong sense of self-esteem, too. Whether you’re an Aries was born confident, or you’re a Gemini or Cancer zodiac sign who can secretly overthink your confidence away, being completely and utterly in love with yourself is a process that comes in waves.

That's why self-esteem can run from high to low depending on where you are or how you feel that day. With that being said, even the most confident of zodiac signs have days where they feel like hiding in a shell — being withdrawn isn't just for the Crabs of astrology!

But the common theme that helps every zodiac sign is born with a unique horoscope designed to overcome their negative outlook on themselves and to aid others in friendship.

Because every Sun sign needs a friend in their life who are constantly lifting them up and inspiring them.

And when you have good friends, it is easier to realize that every, body is unique, and beautiful; and the more you take care of our body, the easier it becomes to love the skin you are in and regain the confidence you lost.

Here is a list of how each zodiac sign boosts other's self-esteem through friendship, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Your friendship is a natural self-esteem booster in friendship. Your exterior radiates self-confidence and a great amount of self-love, so you motivate others to do the same. Like every Sun sign, you do have your moments of feeling self-conscious about your looks and physical appearance, but you try your hardest to not let that stop you from living your best possible life.

In friendship, you often act as the leader when it comes to body positivity, and set the stage for the other zodiac signs. From the stretch marks on your butt to even a nose that you feel is slightly crooked, you will own up to all you are. Your self-worth makes it tough to knock you down.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

This is one of the many reasons why you're such an amazing friend to have around when a person feels like their self-esteem needs a boost. Whether it be spending an unnecessary amount of time getting ready or checking your appearance in every mirror that you pass, you have a very hard time not checking if you look presentable.

So, you don't flinch when someone asks you how they feel or what you think of them. You know how important body image and body positivity and you look out for your friends to defend theirs.

So, you really know how to help friends set boundaries for themselves when it comes to negative self talk. You have the power to make even the most self and body conscious zodaic signs feel at ease about the way you look, and how they look, too.
