These 6 Supportive Zodiac Signs Always Have Your Back

They're there for whatever kind of support you need.

We all need supportive people in our lives, and we need to be supportive of others. For the supportive zodiac signs, this is all part of who they are. 

There are a few ways to be supportive: you can help someone out financially, you can have their back, you can provide sympathy and encouragement, and you can provide additional help in the area in which they need it. You can also help them turn to astrology and check their horoscope if that will provide some sort of solace. 


When we feel supported, it can help us to be strong, to confront people and issues, and it gives us confidence. Some people naturally look out for the people in their lives and back them up.

They understand what the people they support need, and they put that understanding into practice.

You can say you’re supportive, but if your actions don’t match up with your words, no one will believe it. Supportive people make themselves available, and they are there day in and day out for the people who need them.


Sometimes all we need from our supportive friends and family is love and affection. Just knowing that someone cares about us can help us get through the most difficult times and situations. If you ask for a hug, the supportive person is always happy to give you one.

When you’re being supportive, you may not always agree with the other person’s decision, but you respect their process and know that, ultimately, they need to do what’s best for them. You can guide them and let them know you’re there, but you can’t force them to do things the way you’d prefer they do.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)



Aries show their supportiveness in the way that they check in often. They don't let long periods go by where they haven't been in communication. It's never a good idea to let things build up to such an extent that they are practically impossible to deal with.

Your supportive Aries friend might not check in every day, but just when it gets to the point that you'll think you haven't heard from them in a while, they'll reach out.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)



Sometimes when we're going through something or we have a problem of some kind, we have difficulty put our thoughts together. A supportive Gemini knows exactly what questions to ask so that we start to get some clarity.

Once you know what's bothering you, Gemini can help you get to the root of the problem and help you come up with possible solutions. This kind of support by examination is invaluable.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)



Since Pisces are extremely intuitive, they seem to know exactly the kind of support you need, when you need it. They're very caring, so if you need advice or someone to vent to, they're going to give it to you with love.

Once Pisces has accepted you into their heart, it would take something huge for them to turn their back on you. If you need their help or simply their presence when you have to stand up for something you believe in, Pisces will be there.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)



Virgos are the fixers of the zodiac signs. They're there to help you solve the things that are broken or need repair, but they also can take a more inactive role and just sit quietly and let you vent.

Virgos tend to be the person you can place your trust in. A Virgo isn't going to betray you, they're going to support you when you need it and even sometimes when you don't.

5. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)



Libras show their supportive nature by creating a stress-free environment that helps when you're feeling stressed out. They'll do the things you hate to do like chores and running errands if that's what you need, or they'll stand at your side when you're protesting or taking legal action.

Libras aren't afraid to show their support in small and large ways. Sometimes the subtlest shows of support are the most meaningful.

6. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

There's nothing more important for Cancer than supporting the people they care about. Cancer isn't just there when you need support, they're letting you know with words or actions how much they love you.

If you're reticent to say that you need help, Cancer will somehow know to ask what they can do to help you out. The support of a Cancer is worth a whole team of supporters. They've got your back... and then some.
