It is an unwritten rule that some people get along better than others, just like certain signs in the zodiac are destined to clash. It doesn’t mean that we can’t be friends with these people, just that we have to be careful about how we interact and communicate. Some exchanges can be toxic when the wrong energies mix.
Keep in mind that your sun sign (the sign indicated by your birthday) does not fully express your Astrological compatibility with someone. The planet Venus plays a big part in your unique birth chart, and its placement can have a huge effect on your interpersonal relationships. Venus rules love and relationships and defines how we engage with others. If you had your Venus in your best friend’s sign, there is a natural inclination that you will get along.
When You’ve Made a Truly Compatible Friend You Will Just Know It
It is also a rule of thumb that signs of the same element tend to get along. This makes sense as they reflect similar energies. Water signs like water signs, fire signs like fire signs, air signs like air sign,s and earth signs like earth signs. The only distinction is those of the same sign as you, this works like an opposite sign, which you will repel and attract with, like Scorpio and Taurus. There is a chance you won’t like someone of your own sign, but there is also a great chance that you will. In Astrology this is known as a “variable”, it can go either way with.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries is a very friendly sign and can get to know a lot of people, but they don’t let everyone into their heart. Leo is Aries’ soul mate best friend, as two fire signs they share a similar outlook on life that is adventurous and exciting. Aries will also bond with Gemini as they can have witty talks and share common interests like image, dating, and popularity. Problems will arise between Gemini and Aries if they start to compete with each other. Aries will like Libra’s laid back approach and desire to have a good time. Libra will let Aries take control, and Aries likes this. It’s not common, but Aries and Taurus can be friends, however, they might fight for control as both will want to lead. Aries is fascinated by the mind of an Aquarius and enjoys listening to their perspective on life and hearing about their wisdom. Aries isn’t destined to hit it off with Virgo, though Capricorn’s good graces and drive will impress the Aries. Aries is charmed by Pisces’ nature and good heart. They enjoy Cancer comedic and creative side and will work well with a Scorpio as long as they don’t get too bossy.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus makes for a very loyal and true, life-long friend. Many Taurus people grow up to have friendships that have lasted for decades. Earth signs like Virgo and Capricorn will appeal to Taurus.

Both signs are after the best in life. Gemini and Taurus can also share a special connection and work well together. These signs tend to have interests in common. Taurus tends to bond well with other Taurus people, but they will have trouble or could have trouble with their opposite sign, Scorpio.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini likes to dip their pen in a lot of ink, meaning they tend to make friends all over the map. Gemini has probably lost friends, met new friends, and kept friends over the years, but they have to play nice. When they do, Gemini can be the leader of the pack or the sacred member of the crew. On the rare occasion, Gemini won’t get along with other Gems, but usually, Gems love other Gems. Gemini will also connect with air signs Aquarius and Libra. These signs like to play, enjoy life, and partake in a variety of flirtations. Gemini and Scorpio have common ground and tend to connect well as friends. Opposites Sagittarius and Gemini like Brad and Angelina have chemistry, but also the potential to really clash and that’s exactly what they did in the end.

Gemini and Capricorn can also form a healthy union as long as both remain devoted, these two can share good chemistry and want similar things out of life.

Aries and Leo make for a perfect match as friends, they will get into some fun and maybe even some trouble. Leo and Sagittarius will be partners in adventure and share constant laughter. These two signs really understand each other. Leo also loves Virgo and Libra. Virgo balances Leo out and Libra lets Leo lead. Libra is also easy and refreshing to be around and Leo admires that–both of these signs just want to have a good time! Leo will be drawn to Scorpio and their “can do” and intellectual energy, but trouble could occur when they realize they’re not well-matched overall. Textbooks say Leo doesn’t jive well with Pisces, but in reality, Leo holds a special affection for Pisces. They can become life-long friends and really get along on a deep level. Leo can hit it off with Capricorn, but mainly as friends, romantically these two don’t tend to work.

When this union is healthy, these signs present alternative ways of looking at things for each other, and can form a beneficial bond like Drew Barrymore (Pisces) and Cameron Diaz (Virgo). Virgo and Sagittarius are like Beyoncé (Virgo), Jay Z (Sagittarius) they are that hidden zodiac pairing that seems to work, as long as they are communicating properly. Virgo provides a safe haven and a healthy foundation for fire signs like Sagittarius.

Gemini and Scorpio will understand each other, have things in common, and generally get along well. As long as Gemini is open and honest with Scorpio, then it’s unlikely they will have too many problems. Opposite signs like Scorpio and Taurus tend to find each other, and even attempt friendship, but Astrological records have come to show that these signs don’t generally work. There will be conflict. As two forces of control, these signs bump heads.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius is the type to have a ton of acquaintances and “friends” all over, but only a few close people touch their hearts. Sagittarius is very independent and doesn’t mind doing things on their own. They are attracted to fire signs like Leo and Aries who are up for the thrill and the adventure. Sagittarius doesn’t like to sit still for too long, and Aries and Leo pals will be happy to go along for the ride. As mentioned, Sagittarius and Virgo have an unwritten zodiac connection. These signs balance each other out, as the sometimes wild Sagittarius, needs someone earthy and calm to lean on. These two signs could make for good partners. Sagittarius will run into trouble with other Sagittarius people when they start to compete with them. Also, one Sagittarius has to be emotionally open in order for it to work long-term.

Capricorn and Pisces will have a strong connection, as Pisces’ dreamy aura will relax Capricorn. Capricorn will feel comfortable sharing things with Pisces, things they can’t tell anyone else. Capricorn is also very compatible with Scorpio. Both hard workers with solid principals, they share a common ground and understanding. Capricorn and Leo might attract because they are both after success, but these two signs will clash, and are better off as just friends. One can’t be better than the other, with friendships you need equality, and Capricorn will not do well with anyone who is trying to outdo them.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
The key trait for an Aquarius is “friendliness”, Aquarius will try to be friends with just about anyone, but they don’t let just anyone into their heart. Even if they can connect with people from all over the world. As an emotionally detached sign, it takes time to break down the Aquarius–they don’t open up so easily. Aquarius is great with other air signs like Gemini and Libra. These signs will have a meeting of the minds to meet on a mental and intellectual level. They will also love beautiful things and beauty in the world. Aquarius is attracted to Scorpio, but there can be problems as Aquarius is independent and doesn’t like to be controlled, but Scorpio can’t help but be a bit bossy.

Opposite signs Pisces and Virgo can be toxic and problems could arise, but in reality, many strong, and lasting Virgo and Pisces friendships exist.
