They say that “you can’t pick your family, but you can pick your friends” so why not make the right choice here and consult the stars before making an effort to make new friends.

After all, making the first move in any new friendship can be a stressful task, so there’s no harm in seeing who the stars think you are compatible with to make that task just that little bit easier.

Of course, if the first question you ask is “what is your sign?” there may be some trouble at the beginning. However, if you have the same interests, these issues should soon pass.

Also, this is only meant as a fun guide and should not be taken too seriously. If you have friends who don’t fit into this pattern, don’t worry – as we said – this is just for fun.

Anyway, here’s a little guidance on your friendships based on the astrology.

Aries

As an independent Aries, perhaps a Sagittarius could be the friend you crave. They will give space and aren’t the sort to butt in where they are not concerned. 

Taurus

Virgos and Taurus seem to work very well with each other as friends. They both appreciate the joys of organisation and they both work towards strong ethical codes.

Gemini

Libras are great for Geminis as they help make them feel more balanced. Geminis also connect well with Aquarius, as they both have strong intellects and love deep meaningful conversations.  

Cancer

A Cancer’s emotional intensity can be a turnoff for quite a few signs, however it connects perfectly with Scorpios, as they can relate to this sort of thinking.

Leo

Leos love being the centre of attention and this sort of action usually attracts other Leos. They will very often be friends with those who share the same sign because of this.

Virgo

Virgos and Capricorns are both hard workers, who know what it takes to get the job done. Thus, they relate to each other on a deeper level and make excellent best friends.

Libra

Libras connect well with most signs, but they really understand those who are Aquarius. They hold the same values and that is an essential value of any good friendship.

Scorpio

Scorpios and Pisces are an interesting pair, who usually become friends, but can bring out the worst in each other. They love being the other one’s bad influence.

Sagittarius

This sign is on the constant lookout for a partner in crime. They will follow Leos into fold and will try to convince them to join them on an adventure.

Capricorn

Capricorn and Taurus go together like Tom and Jerry. There are times where they will clash, but there are also stages when they will be inseparable.

Aquarius

The Aquarius and the Gemini will connect on an intellectual level and the pair will talk until the cows come home when they get together.

Pisces

Cancers and Pisces can form deep artistic friendships that can result in excellent work being produced.

There you have, each one of the signs and the sign which suits the role of their best friend.
