It feels good to be generous.

The Most Generous Thing Each Zodiac Sign Does. getty

Generosity is a wonderful thing. Not only does it do some good for someone else, but it benefits the giver. There are those who are generous all the time and others who go long periods without any selfless action.

Our personalities, how we were brought up, and our own experiences with generosity shape the kind of person we are. Astrology can tell us many things, and it can be helpful when going into a new relationship or friendship to see how the zodiac signs are generous.


Are you supportive and make sure you go to all your friends' shows or art openings? Do you give gifts when there isn’t a reason? Are you always ready to lend a hand when someone needs it?

Some people can’t help being generous and don’t feel good unless they’ve given their time to a worthy cause. Other people can be stingy, and generosity may not come easily to them. But that doesn’t mean they’re not generous at their core, it just means it might take a little more time or persuasion to realize it.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries individuals are generous in the way they support their friends and loved one's projects. Not only will Aries go to your stand-up class showcase, but they'll also share the details of it on their social media.

They won't leave in the middle of the show, even if they get bored, but will be there at the very end to give you a hug and congratulate you, even if you bombed!

Cancers are generous with their kindness. They're kind to clerks, customer service people, and fast-food workers — anyone who works with the public.
