Allow your relationship to be the best it can be by understanding the in-depth potential of your friendship according to the stars.


Being friends with a ram can be both extraordinary and challenging. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, which means they start projects and friendships very quickly, diving in head first without hesitation. Having an Aries as a friend leads others to feel highly motivated, striving to be the best versions of themselves.

Aries and Aries
Aries is ruled by action planet Mars, which makes Aries and Aries jump into a friendship impulsively. This duo may lock horns from time to time due to their need for personal freedom. Both rams desire to be the numero uno friend to the other, which can be amazing when one is in need. If they argue, both rams will try to repair the relationship immediately and ensure the friendship so it’s stronger than ever.

Aries and Taurus
These friends are very different. But, their differences keep them together. Aries has a tendency to make brash comments without thinking, which can hurt the Bull’s feelings. The two may not see eye to eye, as Taurus thinks things out thoroughly and is slow to mend fences once angered. Aries, who loves to do all the work in friendships, rushes right in to make amends and may frustrated by the Bull’s stubbornness. These two do get along due to their loyal bones, however, not without some hiccups along the way.

Aries and Gemini
One of the more favorable pairings for friendship, these two genuinely enjoy spending quality time chatting it up with the other on the phone. Gemini relies on Aries for sound advice, who loves giving it. Aries shares gossip and secrets freely with the twins, as they allow the mighty ram to feel close and safe to them, like a sibling.

Aries and Cancer
Fire and water signs can put each other out, but, these two signs appreciate the emotional depth of the other in their friendship. Both signs try to put plans into motion rather fast, as they are both fast moving Cardinal signs. Issues arise when Cancer retreats into their shell, opting to be non confrontational, while Aries acts oppositely. Even if they have different emotional styles, these friends try to understand and care for the other.

Aries and Leo
While both Fire signs enjoy the other’s company, issues arise between both due to their competitive nature. Aries is often more willing to submit to the lion’s needs and Leo is likely to try to take the high road in this friendship, which can be hard as Leo tends to get slightly jealous of Aries achievements. Both want to be the best, which doesn’t make much room for mutual support, unless they are an evolved form of their signs.

Aries and Virgo
Aries and Virgo is a match that can go either way—these friends either love each other or hate each other right away. The issue is Aries is uncensored and Virgo is too careful and plays by the rules. If these two strike up a friendship, it will be based on mutual interests, leading to working together.

Aries and Libra
Opposites attract in this friendship. Libra adds much needed balance to the fast moving ram, offering help and advice to cool off Aries. The flip side, is Aries shows Libra how to be more independent and self reliant. While these two are a great match, they work best by not in the same circle of friends, as they both need emotional space.

Aries and Scorpio
Both of these signs are ruled by passionate action oriented Mars, which forces them to push the envelope. These two can move mountains together, but, with a bit of drama. Fights between the two can escalate fast, as they both try to outdo the other.

Aries and Sagittarius
What a saucy duo! These two fire signs genuinely enjoy the others company, opting to spend nights talking about higher life pursuits. Aries loves Sagittarius' intellectualism and Sag enjoys the boldness of Aries. United, they are great friends who share endless laughs.

Aries and Capricorn
These two friends challenge each other—in all the right ways! They push each other to grow, motivating each other to reach for the stars. The only caveat, is Aries tends to run off very fast and Capricorn prefers to proceed with caution, which can be promising if they find a middle ground.

Aries and Aquarius
Both Aries and Aquarius revolt authority and revel in their independence, which is why these two have an exciting friendship. As long as they let the other fly high, they can have many fun filled times.

Aries and Pisces
Sensitive Pisces serves as a compassionate ear to their bold Aries pal. This friendship works because Aries will endlessly defend their Pisces bestie, while Pisces will unconditionally support their ram.


Taurus is an extremely loyal sign—who will be your friend till the end. Always accepting the flaws of others, Taurus works hard to preserve friendships, always standing through thick and thin, no matter what consequences it may bring.

Taurus and Taurus
When two Bulls come together, expect peace, love, and understanding  to permeate the air. Taurus has found its ultimate shopping buddy and bestie for a non stop pleasure cruise. These two love to splurge on good food, wine, and luxury items, while encouraging the others artistic and sensual pursuits.

Taurus and Gemini
This pair connect by indulging similar interests, such as cooking, art, and music. Their friendship may have a slow start, as steady Taurus is suspicious of Gemini’s changeable nature. However, over time the two come together, only if Gemini has the patience to wait for Taurus to open up.

Taurus and Cancer
One of the more fruitful friendships, these two have much to gossip about and create together. Taurus allows  the crab to feel safe to walk outside their  shell and leave it’s comfort zone to go on new adventures. In return, Bull feels seen by the friendship, eager to share secrets with the crab.

Taurus and Leo
Initially, Taurus and Leo may compliment each other’s emotional needs, as both seem to understand the other. Over time, this dynamic can change, with Leo using manipulation tactics over the Bull, which in return may cause the Bull to see red, leading to arguments within the friendship.

Taurus and Virgo
This stable friendship brings light heartedness to both signs. Taurus and Virgo connect while enjoying earthy pleasures and enchanting evenings out together. Virgo acts as “wing-woman” to Taurus while out, even accepting sound advice from their Bullish bud.

Taurus and Libra
Both Taurus and Libra are rued by Venus, inspiring them to connect over artistic interests. For the most part, these friends get along. However, Libra can be a little too critical for Taurus, which can cause passive aggressive arguments between them both.

Taurus and Scorpio
These two usually commit to their friendship with caution—as they observe the others motives before making decisions. The friendship can lead to a mutual understanding of sensual tastes and exploration. However, they are both stubborn fixed signs which can lead to epic arguments, with Scorpio submitting to Taurus first.

Taurus and Sagittarius
These friends can only survive the test of time if they constantly keep each other in check. Grounded Taurus often doesn’t understand Sagittarius’s unpredictable lifestyle, which can lead to complications, such as misunderstandings and miscommunications. However, they both appreciate the honesty that exists within the friendship; the truthfulness they find in each other keeps them together.

Taurus and Capricorn
These two earthy signs get each other. When the going gets tough, they catch the other before they fall. When times are tough, they laugh it off together. This brilliant friendship stands the test of time, as they both find each other reliable, ethical, and honorable.

Taurus and Aquarius
Taurus and Aquarius value the others dedication. However, they often don’t see eye to eye beyond that. This friendship may get tense at times, due to Taurus’s rigidity and Aquarius’s quirky nature—which don’t mix well, causing a mutual lack of understanding in the friendship. However, they both will stay together—out of loyalty.

Taurus and Pisces
Both signs love discussing beauty and art, which is the basis of this friendship. Over time, Taurus may get annoyed by the flighty and flaky nature of Pisces, making it hard to commit to plans. Pisces may get over flustered by the luxurious lifestyle of the Bull, making them feel like a fish out of water in this friendship.


The Gemini friend is always on your side, offering a different take on situations, which help other signs to grow. The most relationship oriented sign of the zodiac, Gemini’s often need a friend who will be their partner in crime, or their perpetual “twinsie.” Often times, Gemini becomes joint at the hip with their BFF—which provides endless laughter and good times. And, being that Gemini is a dual sign, residing as the twin siblings in the sky—you get two friends for the price of one.

Gemini and Gemini
Four is a party with these two sets of twins. The laughter never stops, as they discuss novel ideas and trivia. Both have a thirst for excitement, only parting ways when the friendship becomes too routine and boring.

Gemini and Leo
Gemini is an ideal friend match for Leo—only because Gemini doesn’t take offense to the lion’s constant need to be in the spotlight. Issues arise between the both, only when outside  parties interfere by spreading gossip. While slander can hurt the friendship, similar humanitarian interests bring these two together, forcing them to repair conflicts for the greater good.

Gemini and Libra
These two signs know how to seek out airy pleasures and enjoyments together. Libra adds creativity to Gemini’s intellectualism, by opening their favorite twin friends up to exciting new artists and visionaries. In return, Gemini teaches their lovely Libra pal about higher minded pursuits—both gaining knowledge from the friendship, making this pairing a meeting of the minds.

Gemini and Scorpio
In mythology, Mercury (Gemini’s planetary ruler) was the only God Pluto (Scorpio’s modern planetary ruler) would allow the flexibility to travel in and out of the underworld, as Pluto sought amusements from Mercury’s tales. The same rings true in their modern friendship. Scorpio gets a kick out of Gemini’s trickster nature. Both feel understood by the chameleon nature of the other, making this friendship transformative and solid. When both signs come together, their lives are forever changed by this alliance.

Gemini and Sagittarius
Sometimes opposites attract, however, this is not the case here. Sagittarius is too broad minded for Gemini, who likes to act on a smaller scale. They often do not see eye to eye as friends and disagree on their perspectives of situations. Gemini likes to talk things out, Sag likes to move on—this major emotional difference can cause conflicts in their friendship.

Gemini and Capricorn
If Capricorn trusts their Gemini pal 100 per cent, this friendship can take the other to great heights. If not, it can lead to destructive arguments fueled with jealously and mistrust. The best advice to keep these two afloat, is for both signs to tread lightly in the beginning stages their friendship, allowing this relationship to evolve naturally, over time, at a steady and slow pace.

Gemini and Aquarius
As one of the more favorable astrological friendships, these two know how to have fun together.

Don’t worry, these friends never stay mad at each other for long—they express their feelings and move on swiftly.

Gemini and Pisces
Both mutable signs can be wishy washy as friends—going from highs to lows in the span of hours. These friends can get along if Gemini learns to control their fast tongue and chooses consciously to use sweet words while communicating with sensitive Pisces. 


When a crab lays its claws on you, they grab on and never let go. The  same theory applies to how Cancer acts in all friendships. Caring and nurturing by nature, the crab is a ride or die friend—always remaining by the side of their friend in need.

Cancer and Cancer

When these two friends meet, it may take a minute for them both to adjust to the other. Leo may feel Cancer is too needy and Cancer may think Leo is too superficial.

At the core, both the lion and the crab are kind hearted, their bark is noticeably bigger than their bite or pinch, which makes them loyal companions.

Leo and Sagittarius
