Every zodiac sign, according to astrology, fits into a certain role in their friend squad that can’t be replaced by anyone else — kind of like the Spice Girls (and yes, I’m still mad there’s no Spice Girls reunion tour).

Every Spice Girl has their own personality and without them all together, the whole group kind of falls apart, doesn’t it?

Take, for example, myself. I’m the deadbeat friend who never answers texts and forgets to make plans to hang out — okay, only kidding, but I do have a problem with keeping in touch.


But if you really think about it, everyone in your friend group has a specific personality and plays a certain role when you’re all together.

Maybe one of them is more of the Mom Friend who chaperones everyone when things get too wild when you’re all out together or maybe one of your friends is the Sensitive Friend you know you can always count on to answer your calls at 3 a.m. when you really need to talk.

Can you imagine being without one or more of these types of friends? Of course not!

Because when all of you are together, you’re like one big super friend who could probably rule the world if you wanted to.


And having friends like these should never be taken for granted.

It’s easy to under appreciate the people in your life while you still have them because if they ever leave, you definitely feel like something big is missing.

When I think about it, every friend in my squad is like a part of my being — they’re all super important to me and without them, I would feel like a part of me is missing.


They also have personality traits and parts of themselves that I want to see in myself.

As an Aquarius, I might not always be the best person for empathy and I might not always be the most confident, but with friends with zodiac signs like Pisces and Aries, I can work on my own weaknesses by using their strengths as a guide to be a better me.

And when you think of it the other way, you play a big role in your squad, helping each person be their best selves by sharing your strengths with them however you can.

Maybe you’re really good at never giving up on your dreams or you have amazing listening skills.


When you’re not using these strengths to help your friends, wouldn’t you want to teach them how to use these skills to their own advantage? Of course, you would!

Being a friend means lifting your friends up and always being there for each other, no matter what. So, what type of friend are you, based on astrology? Keep reading to find out.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The Trendsetter Friend


Aries, you’re the Trendsetter Friend because you love to try anything new. Whether it’s a new style or that weird, smoking shot at your favorite bar, you’re down to try something at least once.

You’re also an initiator, which means you love to get the party started when your friends seem totally bored, and you’re also not afraid to speak your mind if it means bringing new ideas to your squad.

As an Aries, you’re a natural-born leader who always feels like the most comfortable place in your squad is the one where you get to call all the shots. And because you always seem to exude confidence and fearlessness, your squad happily lets you lead the pack — as long as you lead like a friend and not with an iron fist.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

The Persistent Friend

Taurus, you are what’s known as the Persistent Friend. That means that you’re the kind of person who never gives up whenever you set your own goals, even when you feel like you’re being beaten down in life.

You’re like the superhero who still manages to rise from the rubble even after getting your butt kicked, which only proves you can’t be beat down.


You also push your friends to take action in their own lives instead of putting off the things they really want to do, but not in a pushy way. You’re supportive and patient, but you’re also the “get it done” kind of person that all of your friends love to hate. Sure, they roll your eyes when you poke at them to push themselves, but they always love you for it in the end.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The Best Friend


Gemini, you’re the Best Friend because, well, you’re one of the best friends anyone could ask for. You love having a kindred spirit who is like your twin in every sense of the word and, even though you have a lot of friends, you consider them all your BFFs because you feel close to each and every one of them.

You have a charming, dynamic personality that makes it easy for just about anyone to become your new BFF. But whether you have one BFF or ten, you never fail to make everyone in your life feel special.

And like any best friend, you know how to show you care by keeping the group chat lively and always making sure you have time to hear your squad’s problems.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

The Mom Friend

Cancer, you are the Mom Friend of your squad, but don’t let that make you feel like all you do is boss around your friends. You’re the mom of the group because you’re so nurturing and encouraging with your BFFs that they couldn’t ask for a better friend than you.

For you, this caregiver personality comes easily, so you never feel like you have to try hard to show your friends you care.


And like a mom, you tend to plant deep roots with your squad, which means just because you don’t always see eye to eye doesn’t mean you’re going to up and leave them. Good relationships take time and when it comes to your friends, you’re in it for the long haul.

The love you have for your friends — and how much you want to see them succeed — is bigger than any disagreement you could ever experience with them.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

The Life of the Party Friend


Leo, it should come as no surprise to you or anyone else in your squad that you are the Life of the Party Friend. Not only are you a fun-loving, light-hearted person who loves to have fun, but you also make sure that your friends feel the warmth of the spotlight, too.

For you, a party is so much better when you’ve got your BFF right next to you when you’re dancing on a tabletop at the bar.

But besides being popular and well-liked by pretty much everyone, you’re also a powerful leader, which shouldn’t be discounted.

Yes, you’re the life of the actual party, but you’re also the one who pumps your squad up when your weekends together are getting a little stale or if they need a cheerleader to keep them motivated to succeed in life.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

The Perfect Friend

Virgo, you’re the Perfect Friend — and no, not the perfectionist friend. Yes, you like being a perfectionist when it comes to your own life, but when it comes to your squad, you really just want to be the friend everyone appreciates having around. What makes you so perfect?


Well, the fact that you’ve got so many great personal and social qualities that intertwine to make the perfect friend.

When you’re with your friends, you‘re always so helpful, making sure that they know you’re always around to lend a hand. You’re also a great conversationalist, which means your BFFs know that they can come to you when they need to vent.

And when it comes to being a Virgo overall, you’re witty and dedicated to being a wholesome, flawless person.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

The Social Butterfly Friend


Libra, as the Social Butterfly Friend of the squad, you’re all about meeting new people and welcoming new members into your friend group with open arms.

You’re the type of friend to strike up a conversation with a totally random person and end up realizing that they’ve been the missing piece to your squad all along.

What makes you such a good friend are your abilities to always be kind and speak up for what’s right.

What makes you a social butterfly (besides loving new relationships and friendships) is the fact that you know that life is only worth living if you put yourself out there, instead of being a wallflower and observing all the fun.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

The Ride or Die Friend

Scorpio, you are the only friend in your squad that could rightly be called the Ride or Die Friend. You’re fiercely loyal – to the point where you would put the hurt on someone for making your BFF cry — and you’re very, very protective.


For you, being part of a friend group is like being part of a family. You’ll have their backs no matter what and you expect them to have yours too.

You’re also ride or die thanks to your amazing trustworthiness. You’re the type of friend to take secrets to your grave — not because you like having secrets, but because you know how much it means to have someone loyal to confide in, and you want to be that person to your BFFs.

You’re a leader and a protector who will continue to prove to your squad that you love them.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

The Optimistic Friend


Sagittarius, as the Optimistic Friend, you’re the one in the squad who is always able to see the bright side of things — whether that means listing off a bunch of advantages to your newly-single friend or shrugging your shoulders and telling your friends you’ve never hitchhiked before when your car breaks down on the side of the road.

You have big goals and you love to dream, but more than that, you believe that anything is possible — it’s inspiring, really.

You might be the kind of risk-taker that not everyone can vibe with, but even if your friends aren’t always on board with your plans, they never judge you. You’re the friend who always does things with a smile on your face and an ability to see the glass half-full.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

The Boss Babe Friend

Capricorn, you are known as the Boss Babe Friend, which you probably already guessed, didn’t you? You’re strong-minded (and have strong opinions) and always in charge because you know that you can get things done.


When you’re not being the boss of the squad — and you’re never bossy (à la Beyoncé) — you’re helping your friends be bosses, too.

You have a fierce personality that demands people take you seriously and while that can be scary to see for some, your BFFs know that you’re just unafraid of anything when you’re determined to succeed.

You can also be known as the hero of the squad, always swooping in to help your friends when they need it and sometimes even showing them how it’s done when they ask for help.

You’re a trailblazer who believes that being different is what makes things fun, and you’re always trying to get your friends to try new things.

You’re also rebellious and courageous, and you’re not afraid of doing things that could probably get you into trouble later. You’re the friend who convinces the squad to do crazy things that might seem like a terrible idea at the time but usually make for the best stories later on.

As long as you can get your BFFs to be as passionate about having fun as you are, you’re happy.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

The Psychic Friend

Pisces, you’re the Psychic Friend. This means that you know your friends so well that it’s almost like you can read their minds or predict what they’re going to say before they know it themselves.


You’re wise beyond your years, and your friends love coming to you for advice, as if you were a guru or Yoda, even. And because you’re a natural-born empath, you always know exactly how to help them.

You’re an imaginative and mystical person who loves being the friend in the squad who seemingly always radiates light and warmth.

If you can be there for your friends and have them know just how far you’re willing to go for them, you feel like you’re doing your job. You care deeply and you’re the friend who always makes a big impact on others’ lives.
