What You Look For In A Bestie, According To Your Zodiac Sign

Loyalty? Intelligence? A partner in crime? That's for the cosmos to decide.

The relationship you have with your best friend never stops being special. They’re the person you can goof around with, confide in, and share your interests with. They always have your back and are willing to laugh at your terrible jokes, defend you when you’ve been wronged, and support your wins, no matter how big or small. There are no hidden agendas when it comes to your best friend; they love you and want the best for you. No two friendships ever look the same, and that’s what makes this kind of relationship so unique. There’s a reason you and your best friend were drawn to each other in the first place, and what you look for in a BFF, based on your zodiac sign, might totally explain what that reason is.

Astrology is an incredible way to understand who you are and what you crave in all of your relationships. Every placement in your birth chart signifies a different aspect of your personality, your instincts, and your heart. You might only be familiar with your sun sign, which symbolizes your overall character and sense of self, but that's not the only part of your chart that's important. Your moon sign describes who you are on the inside and how you process your emotions; your Venus sign illuminates the way you give and receive love; your Mercury sign reflects your style of communication; your Mars sign even denotes the way you react to conflict; and, of course, your rising sign helps you understand who you are on the surface and how you navigate the world.

All of these placements in your chart come together to encapsulate the brilliant universe that exists within you. Each of them has something to say about how you understand the concept of friendship. To give you a better idea of what qualities you're looking for in a person, here are the qualities of each zodiac sign's ideal best friend.
