what you're like as a friend
Zodiac, Self

There's just something about you people can't ignore.

When we think about our friends, we tend to focus on how they are as friends to us. Are they supportive, fun, and do they challenge us to do new things? Is your friend always there when you need them?

When you want to know what you're like as a friend, you can always look to astrology and even your horoscope for concrete answers. Each zodiac sign brings something different to a friendship, and each has their way of shining.

And even as you get older and realize that not everyone can satisfy every need, that's okay. People tend to come and go throughout our lives. Sometimes you just grow out of a relationship. If you no longer have anything in common with a friend, it doesn't mean that either one of you is bad people, you just don’t connect anymore.

While looking at how our friends treat us is a good thing, it’s also very beneficial to look at how we are as friends. Are you too self-involved to really help them with a problem, or are you so quick to react that they have to be careful with what they say around you?

Friendship isn’t a default setting. Are you truly present when your friend needs you or are you too wrapped up in your own drama to be of much use? Once you discover what you're like as a friend, you'll have a better idea of how you should act in a friendship.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Because you're so lively and impulsive, people tend to underestimate how loyal and caring you can be. You have a very positive outlook on life and are up to try all kinds of fun adventures. You try to challenge your friends to step outside of themselves and try new things.

You are passionate about things and aren't ever wishy-washy about anything. You value your friendships and you try to remember special occasions; in fact, not only are you the first person to volunteer to throw an anniversary party, but you like to have parties for other more random reasons — a new job, the Academy Awards, or the Winter Solstice.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Here's the thing about Taurus individuals: everyone knows how reliable and tried and true they are as friends, but no one seems to mention how Taurus can turn up the charm and get the party started. You're like the best of both worlds.

On one hand, you're amazingly dependable and patient, and on the other hand, you make people come alive in your presence. It's more than star-quality, it's like an all-around fabulousness that you have.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Everyone knows that you love a good party and can talk about everything with anyone, but the thing that your friends know is that you're very fun, supportive, and make everything better with your presence. Maybe it's because you're funny and constantly break down walls between people with your humor.

You're also very open-minded which makes you pretty much up for anything. You may not always be on time or may flake out completely, but when it comes to being there when a friend really needs you, there's nothing that will stand in your way.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Everybody needs a friend that they can unload all their emotions on, and that's you. It's clear that as much love as you receive, you give back triple. You're the person friends want to talk to when they're feeling down about a breakup, or happy about a new love.

You're always there cheering people on and helping them to feel better or encouraging them to savor their joy and happiness. You're a giver and you don't expect anything in return. You're the ultimate best friend.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You are the whole package when it comes to being a friend. You're vibrant and fun, and amazing things happen when people are around you. You're friendly and strangers are drawn to you, but you are still present for your friend and aren't always looking for a new or better person to talk to.

You'd never abandon a friend for a hookup because you're so loyal. Leos make spectacular friends, and their friendship gets even better over time.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Who wouldn't want a friend who could fix almost any problem, whether it be an emotional or a real-life one? Maybe at first glance your reliability and trustworthiness don't seem that flashy, but you're an amazing friend and anyone who has you in their corner is extremely lucky.

You notice everything and that attention to detail can sometimes cause you problems (when it's unasked for), but more often than not, it saves the day.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You make it your mission to be a great friend. You're fair and able to see things from many different points of view. However, that doesn't mean you won't stand up for a friend if they need somebody to be their advocate.

You're loyal, fun, creative, and also very funny. You have friends from childhood and new friends from just last week. When friendships end, you try to let them go with gratitude for what you learned from them, but you won't hang on if the relationship is toxic.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

There is no one on earth who is as passionate about their friends as you are. If you ran into your friend's ex, and the ex had been cheating on your friend, you would not hold back on going off on them. They'd regret running into you big time.

Sure, it might not be your battle to fight, but you can't stand it when someone acts like a jerk to someone you love. You have no problem handling out some emotional justice. If someone is talking smack behind your friend's back, you'll call out the perpetrator and give them an earful.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You're always doing fun things and going to unusual places. If someone has your energy level and curiosity, you can be friends; if they're a stick in the mud or too cautious, it's not a good match.

Everyone wants to travel with you and experience the excitement you bring to everything. You love your freedom and don't want to be dragged down by someone, so you need a friend that can keep up.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You can't hide how much you love your friends, and they thrive under your care. You're equal parts dependable and dynamic. You make friends wherever you go — at work, at play, friends of friends, and so on.

People tend to gravitate to you because of your amazing personality, and then they're rewarded with your ability to be a true friend. It's not surprising that your social circle is huge; you treat your friends well.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You let people just be themselves, and that's such a relief for them. You don't judge; in fact, you actually encourage people to let down their walls and be their true selves.

You're very independent, but no matter where you go, you'll either make some new friends or have some friends already there that you can visit. You can't tolerate meanness or bullying and will fight against it, especially when it's directed at your friends.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

There's something about you that makes people want you in their lives. Maybe it's your compassion or your creativity, but as much as you may want to daydream, people are always pulling you back into the here and now so you'll be present with them.

You don't enjoy conflict or fighting, and you'll do what you can so everyone is happy. You're a big believer in giving second chances, so even if a friendship ended badly, that doesn't mean it won't ever be revived again.
