5 Zodiac Signs Who Make The Best Neighbors.

We tend to focus on bad neighbors because they make the best stories. Good neighbors don’t draw the kind of attention the actions of bad neighbors do. Good neighbors are a rarity and we tend not to know how good we’ve got it until they’re gone.

What makes a good neighbor? Thoughtfulness, kindness, consideration of others, and responsibility are just some of the characteristics. Add astrology to the mix, and the zodiac signs who make good neighbors may surprise you.

Most of the time, we have a combination of neighbors. Maybe your neighbor on one side is really great, but the one on the other side never picks up after their dog. You learn to live with the good and the bad; however, if your neighbors are so bad and their behavior they doesn't change, you may have to move. Don’t underestimate the power of an extremely good neighbor. 

1. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are the kind of neighbors who always give out the best Halloween candy or have the best parties. Their house is where people tend to gather and suddenly it's a spontaneous party.

Since Cancers are very creative, they have the best holiday decorations, are there when anyone needs help, and always offer a shoulder for anyone going through a tough time. When they do something nice for their neighbor, they never expect anything in return.

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

The Capricorn house has curb-appeal — they're not the neighbors who have a bunch of broken-down cars on their front lawn. They mind their own business but are helpful when it's requested.

When a new neighbor moves in, Capricorn doesn't just introduce themselves, they give their new neighbor their phone number in case of emergency or for any other reason. They keep a watchful eye, and if they see suspicious activity, they won't ignore it.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are the kind of neighbors who will organize a block party, make sure everyone feels welcome, and then buy more than their share of food. If a neighborhood watch needs to be set up, Leo will have the meeting in their home and be the first one to volunteer.

If they have a problem with a neighbor, they resolve the conflict face-to-face so it doesn't escalate. If Leo is out in the neighborhood, they're going to be sure to say hello to people and maybe even stop to chat.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are considerate neighbors. They're always aware of the noise level and they're never going to blast music late at night. If they have pets, they pick up after them and never let them stray from the yard.

If a neighbor has a new baby or puppy and there's noise coming from their house, Libra has empathy for them. If you need someone to pick up your mail, water your plants, or feed your pets while you're on vacation, they are willing to do that for you.

5. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Not only are Virgos considerate of others, but they also have mad skills. If you need something repaired or need help finding a lost item, they are the best person to call. Virgos are very happy to help and if they don't know the answer, they're more than willing to research it for you.

They don't just fix material items, they can help smooth things over between neighbors. Virgo will tell you cool stories about the history of your neighborhood and you'll wonder why people would ever want to live anywhere else.
