The Role You Play In Your Girl Squad, According To Astrology

I've always been truly blessed when it comes to female friendships. Throughout high school, I had a big, tight-knit group of girl friends. There were about twelve of us and we did absolutely everything together. We even had a super embarrassing group nickname that we called ourselves.

(Which I won't disclose to save them the embarrassment.) 

Basically, we were the type of girl squad that everyone else hated because we loved each other so much. When we all went off to separate colleges across the country we swore we'd never let anything break our woman bond. To this day, we are all still best friends, and we use our group chat daily to keep each other updated on our lives at college.

I never thought I'd be able to meet another group of female friends as loyal and fun-loving as them, and this was probably the thing I was most nervous about when I decided to go away to school. But, much to my surprise, I did.

Freshman year was a little bit rough at first. It seemed like everyone I met at school was so different from me, like I had nothing in common with anyone. Luckily, I had probably the world's greatest roommate, who is practically my twin, to make me feel at home. (She's still my very best friend, by the way.) 

After a few weeks, I started to hang out more with the other people who lived in my dorm. I can't even explain how we became such close friends because it seemed to happen in a day. As the semesters flew by I met more and more people, and now as I approach my senior year, I can say that I am currently best friends with the greatest people I've ever known. 

Being someone who's lucky enough to have not one, but two huge, amazing, psychotic groups of friends, it's safe to say that every squad has its types of friendships

You might be the organized one who takes care of all of the plans and communication or the one whose sole purpose is to keep everybody laughing. Either way, you play a crucial role in your friend group. 

Lucky for you, your zodiac sign describes exactly who you are when it comes to your friend group and the role that you play in your girl squad, according to astrologyby horoscope date. 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The Friend Who Backs You up in a Fight

Aries, you are always up for a challenge, even if it's not always in your best interest. You are extremely protective of your friends and you won't let anyone hurt them. Having a short-temper means that you're not one to step down when it comes to dealing with a problem. If someone is threatening one of your best friends, forget it. You'll be the first to stick up for them and defend them no matter the consequence. 

This might hurt you more than anyone else in the long run, but your loyalty and devotion to your friends doesn't go unnoticed. Nothing is more important to you in a friendship than having each other's backs.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

The Leader of the Pack

Every group of friends needs a leader, it's just natural. Taurus, your power, devotion, and responsibleness make you the perfect ringleader. 

Someone needs to call the shots, and you're always willing to take on this role. Whether it's validating plans, communicating with the group, or choosing what bar to go to on a Friday night, everyone respects your opinion the most. The responsibility can be exhausting at times, but you're a natural born leader, and your friends rely on you. 

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The Party Animal

Gemini, you're the friend who's always down for an adventure. Hosting parties is your specialty, and you love being the friend that everyone calls when they're looking for something fun to do. You're the first to know about the new bar or club in town, and everyone can bet that you'll be there on opening night. 

You need to be surrounded by your friends constantly, and spending a night in is absolutely out of the question. After all, you have a social reputation to uphold and you can't be caught sitting on the couch when there's a perfectly good party to attend.  

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

The Good Listener

Cancer, you're the friend that everyone needs at every point in their life. There's a lot to say about someone that can put all of their own problems aside and take time to help a friend.

You're very sympathetic, and it's important to you that your friends know they have someone to turn to in a time of need. You're the one who will drop everything to go to a friend when they need advice or just someone who's willing to listen. Sometimes it might be frustrating that your needs are overlooked, but your friends appreciate your sensitivity and loyalty so much that they will be there for you when you least expect it.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

The Flirt 

Every girl squad has that one friend who's always calling dibs on the cutie they just met, and Leo, that's you! You LOVE to flirt and this is what makes going out so much fun for you. There's nothing better than meeting new people and showing off your fabulous personality. 

Everyone's attention is always focused on you, and your natural beauty and confidence are what makes you so hard to resist. Flirty friends are some of the most fun friends, so keep doing your thing, Leo! 

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

The Planner

Virgo, you are an extremely analytical and practical person. Everything you do is done strategically, and this is what makes you the perfect fit for the group's personal event planner. 

Whether it's planning a weekend getaway to the beach or just choosing dinner and a movie, you always manage even the smallest of details. This is a very tedious job, and your role is definitely taken for granted by some, but without you, the squad wouldn't be as close and fun as it is. Thanks to planners and color coding, you actually find your role to be pretty exciting.   

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

The Balanced Friend

Let's face it, even the closest of friends get into arguments from time to time. Some of us are a little more aggressive than others, causing things to get rather heated, and this is where you come in, Libra. 

Your diplomatic nature allows you to clearly understand both sides of any conflict. Whenever your friends are bickering, you lend your unbiased opinion and suggest a productive compromise that will make both friends happy. This makes you the Switzerland of your friend group, and without your peaceful presence, things would be absolute chaos! 

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

The Lifelong Friend

Scorpio, you are truly a one of a kind gal pal. Not many people stick around for the long haul, but your friendships are the type to last a lifetime. 

You exude all of the qualities that make up a great friend, and you have the decade-long friendships to prove it! Your friendships are your priority, and you treat all of your girls like sisters. Many of your childhood best friends still play an important role in your life today, and this is definitely not changing anytime soon.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) 

The Jokester

Laughter is one of the most essential aspects of a solid friendship. Sagittarius, you're the friend who consistently keeps everybody entertained and laughing.

From initiating prank wars to sending hilarious memes in the group chat, it doesn't matter what environment you're in, you always have a trick up your sleeve. While it might seem like your only role is to make sure everyone is having a good time, you actually do something much more important, maybe even without realizing it. Your jokes and light-hearted nature cheer up anyone who's having a bad day, and this is the best gift you can give to a friend. 

CAPRICORN (December 22- January 19)

The Mom

Yep, every squad has one. Capricorn, your serious and disciplined personality totally makes you the mom of the group. 

You are very responsible and well beyond your years. Whenever a friend needs assistance or simply can't take care of themselves, you will step up to the plate. Your natural reaction to any stressful situation is to handle it practically and without panic, just as any great mom would. Your friends might depend on your help a little too much at times, but they probably wouldn't be alive and well without you! 

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The One That Does Their Own Thing

Most girl squads are super tight-knit. However, there's always that one friend who marches to the beat of their own drum, and that's you, Aquarius!  

There's no doubt that you love spending time with your friends, but that doesn't mean you need to rely on them for every little thing. You're a very independent person, and you love to do things on your own. You know that being unique is important to who you are, so why try to blend in with the rest? You can definitely be true to yourself while also being one of the gals. 

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

The One Who Gets Roasted 

Sorry, Pisces, there's always that one friend who winds up being the punchline of every joke, and that's you. No matter what situation you're in, you somehow manage to be the one everybody loves to target. 

Take it as a compliment, your friends know that you're a gentle soul who won't get unreasonably angry or upset when they're being made fun of. Your ability to laugh along with them is actually quite admirable. They might roast you in the group chat on a daily basis, but it's all out of love. Remember, they're laughing with you, not at you!
