6 Zodiac Signs Who Do Better With A Small Group Of Friends. getty

Do you need a posse of friends or just a few to feel supported and loved? While some people need a huge amount of friends because one or two won’t do it for them, others find that having a smaller circle is better and more manageable. And when you factor in astrology and the stars, there are certain zodiac signs with a small group of friends who enjoy keeping things this way.

There are many benefits to having a small squad of friends. With fewer friends, there’s going to be less drama, less jealousy, and less frustrating than trying to juggle 10 or 20 besties. When you have fewer friends, the friendships you do have tend to be more profound because you can form a strong bond and reinforce that bond with your friends by spending time together and having deeper conversations.


The bottom line is that you’re probably a better friend if you have less of them. You can focus better, have less trouble retaining pertinent information, and you’re more present. And as you grow up, you realize that you don’t need a million friends to feel confident and comfortable with yourself.


1. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

It's easy to love and admire Pisces . — they're so kind and creative, and are loyal and loving friends. They give so much to their friends, and sometimes they give so much that it's a problem.

Pisces will give more second chances than people deserve, and they will go out of their way to help others. It's in Pisces' best interest to keep their friend groups small or they'd never have any energy left for themselves.

2. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are one of the more popular zodiac signs, but when it comes to true friends, they keep their circles small. Aries are very busy and their schedules are packed, so if they make time for you, it means they really care.


Aries can't give everybody the kind of attention and care they give to their friends, so while they may consider you a friend, it will take more than only seeing them occasionally at parties to get to be a part of their inner circle.

3. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

There are a lot of people that admire Taurus and want to be their friend, and they might consider Taurus a close friend of theirs; however, that feeling may not be reciprocated by this zodiac sign. It takes a lot for them to truly trust somebody, so they're very careful about who they let get close to them.

If someone is one of Taurus' best friends, it's likely they've known each other for years, experienced good times and bad, and that friendship was tested. Once you've passed their friendship criteria, they'll be a loyal friend forever, but you've got to pass the test first.

4. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

It can also be difficult for Scorpios to trust people, so they tend to keep their friendship circles small. They may never be the type of person to overshare, but they give their friends their entire attention and really listen to them. They prefer having fewer friends because there's less small talk and they can talk about things that matter.

Scorpios aren't superficial and don't enjoy people who are. When Scorpio's friend group is smaller, they are better able to remember details about them and things they said or did in the past.

5. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are amazing friends and will do whatever they can to help a friend out. There's no one who is as reliable and trustworthy as a Virgo, and when they give their friendship, it means something.

Virgos prefer having fewer friends because having a huge amount of friends can be overwhelming and make them feel as if they're being pulled in too many directions. They have their perfectionist streak, so they try to be the best friend anyone could ever have. And if they did that for more than three or four people, they'd be too exhausted to do anything else.
