Star Sign Friendships And Best Mates

Filed in SUN SIGNS

Alana Zimmer and Amanda Laine

Let’s talk about star sign friendships. So, what is the astrodynamic like between you and your Best Mate???

Your Best Mate can be current or previous but you ideally know his/her astro. Is it a classic Saggo Best Mate breezing in and out telling Scorpionic you to chill the f. out?  Staunch Taurus? Is your star sign friendship with an officially compatible sign with you? 

If you’re a total astro-fiend, what sort of transit did you meet them under?  Or, are you a creature who does not believe in the concept of a ‘best’ friend because you are friends with the entire universe? And, is your friend a classic representative of his/her sign?  Do you believe in friends for a lifetime or friends for a season aka a Pluto era? 

Though friendships lack the romance and intimacy aspect, they can be just as karmic as a sexual relationship. Do you have a friend you would consider yourself soul-bound to?

Thinking of friendships – in general – as being the 11th house scene, does that fit?

If you want to really roll with Retro-Venus, honor, mourn or bitch it up re an ex-Best-Mate.

I’m a Cancer female/Cap rising/Aqua moon. My girl BFFs I would trust with my life are mostly Taurus, plus a few lovely Aquas and Caps. Ditto gay male Virgos. Straight and gay male Leo BFFs. I mostly get along with all signs really well, but with a few standout adored very close family members as exceptions, other Cancers can work my nerves. For me, Cancer energy in particular must be kept extremely haute.

Im an aquarius and have dated a taurus for 5 years off n on and im still trying to figure out HOW and why? Both our ASC are cancer,or maybe its my scorpionic energy. I have my pluto in scorpio conjunct my sun and pluto in conjunction with my ASC.
I also tend to always have a virgo girlfriend, they are the best! but i also find myself attracted to virgo men. I tried to figure this out and i think maybe its my cancer ASC wanting that control and grounding.

I’m a gemini sun with moon in aquarius and libra rising. My closest female friends are one scorpio female, one aquarius female and two saggitarius females. Closest male friend is a gemini and I adore him 🙂

I love purusing these older articles… I am Scorp (sun), Leo (rising) and Sagg. (moon) and my best friend since college is last day Scorp (cusp), Gemini (rising) and Taurus (moon). We get along amazingly and have for over 20 years. My ex is Pisces and I loved his romantic soulfulness. I have recently split with him and it was quite painful…and still is. I am dating an Aries with Taurus rising and Gemini moon and let me just say “WOW”, what a difference. He is VERY forward and his reply’s to questions take me by surprise. (among other things)… Read more »

I’m gemini sun pisces moon with a saggo rising…my best friend is a crazy aquarius..really NOTHING I do surprises her or weirds her out…she on the other hand…lol she really supportive, detached enough to give me my space. Another very close friend of mine is a libra. She calms me down when I’m stressed or upset..and I help her decide which shoe to buy “The red one or the nuetral? I just can’t decide they’re both sooo gorg! ” We’re both party animals…Oh and then there are the 3 Leos in my life…can’t do without them they’re the life of… Read more »

Aqua sun to her cancer
i adooore cancers, they’re so….THERE. i dont have to worry about their overturning me or abandoning me or not caring to listen to my long bitch-outs. We’re not supposed to like each other- at all. but i always adore cancers, but my best friend especially. she has a lot of aquarius in her though, so maybe that makes us a bit more meshable?

I am a Virgo with Aries moon and Libra rising (I am nothing like an Aries, but the other two fit quite well, and I am very Virgoan). I have two best friends, one of whom is also a Virgo with Aquarius moon and Cancer rising, (not like a Virgo at all, (I was surprised to find out there was no Aries in her chart, she acts like one) and a Capricorn with Cancer moon and Gemini rising, (also nothing like her sun sign, she is loud, eccentric and artistic). We are a bit of a strange bunch, but we’re… Read more »

I’m a Virgo. One of my closest friends, with whom I had a year long romance with that sadly ended due to distance, is an Aries. Her fiery personality gets me motivated and back on track during my nervous wreck moments, and I do my best to talk her out of her stubborn Aries spells. Two of my other (platonic this time!) girlfriends are both Virgos and we frequently go into long discussions about how Virgoan we are. Another two of my ladies are Pisces (technically one is a Pisces-Aquarius) and I honestly have no idea why we’re friends 50%… Read more »

Astro Cliched, i know, but for me Aries, Leo, Saggo’s & Gemini’s (polar opposites) do it for me. Another cliche, having Venus in Cap, had a run of Cap lovers in earlier years. Men of my own sign drive me bonkers (& vice versa i imagine:) There was a Real Moment in Time once when in a room with 3 other Dec.8 aquaintances, a total ‘whooosh’ of energy! Never bonded with water signs at all…water puts out fire. Bestie is CowGirl, she gives me security & support, has exquisite Good Taste, keeps me grounded. And Virgo’s try us both nutso… Read more »

Wow. This is fantastic. I have a Cancer Sun, Aqua Moon, Virgo Rising. For moi, I went through phases. Phase One – Every Best Friend was a Toro. Even the Lovers. That officially ended like 6 years ago bringing us to: Phase Two – Only attracting Scorpos. However, I married a Cancer (with Toro Rising), count several Scorps, a Cancer/Leo/Sagg/Aqua/Pisces amongst my litany of best friends, and have dallied with Aqua/Sagg men for fun saving the Toro/Cancer/Scorp ones for the serious business. To me it seems to be a feeling of solidity that I get from Toros and Scorps as… Read more »

My very best friend is a Lib (very libby), i am Lib rising – i’m sure this helps… But apart from that, all of my really close friends (male and female) are Scorps, and they each reflect a completely different aspect of me… There is always a Taurus in the mix, they tend to come and go a bit. I hope i keep the one i’ve got at the moment though, she’s brilliant! Was very close to a Cap for many many years, but we had a massive falling out about 5 years ago at Xmas and have not spoken… Read more »

I don’t really believe in BFFs, people tend to come and go so much in life. But, I’m a Gemini/Virgo moon/Aquarius rising and just realized that my closest girlfriends have been Virgos and Aquarians…matching my moon and ascendant! With Aquarians, it’s all eccentric and creative fun and adventure with great conversation too! With Virgos, we appreciate each other’s values and judgments and don’t seem to piss each other off as often as others piss us off! Great, solid, helpful friends and gentle creatures. Strangely, I have also had lots of very close Pisces girlfriends…we’re not really supposed to mesh that… Read more »

I’m a Cap, and my first best friend was also a cap. I’m Jan. 15, and she was Jan. 12. My first boyfriend was a Jan 21 cap, and that didn’t last long, but we ended up being friends later. My best (gay) guy friend in high school was Jan. 25. So, i guess I’m compatible as friends w/ other caps, but not romantically. Right now, my close circle of friends is primarily caps (4 birthdays in 1 month!) but my husband is a virgo… still has the earth sign sensibilities but different enough to balance me out. We have… Read more »

I’m a Scorp sun with Scorp rising and Gemini moon, and my best friends are always PISCES! I love fish people.

Second best are Virgos, I guess. But more tension there, even though often romantic tension. 😉

Lots of love to all, am madly in love. 😀

My best friend is my sister – so have been best friends all her life (she is younger) I’m a Gemini with lots of fire and air in my chart, she’s a Libra with strong Scorpio tendencies & Aqua moon. She’s hilarious, adorable & i can call her any time, she’s supportive, sweet and talented. There are times when she can be strangely distant but 90% of the time she’s pure affection. Have weird, short-lived, intense relationships with Cancer women which get ruined by bitching. But I still like the intensity of their friendship, when we’re on the same wavelength!… Read more »

speaking of mates, if there are any adelaide peeps here who’d like to come – I’m having birthday drinks on may first… email me for deets: mamamagic@exemail.com I always had a taurean best mate, but lately that has not been the case… I attribute my flock of taurean friends to an eleventh house Taurus sun… also for years I’ve had had a great Leo girlfriend who is SO much fun to be with (although on many occasions I’ve had to go have a lie down and a cold flannel afterwards). Her sun is at my Sun/Moon midpoint, her moon is… Read more »

My first human best friend was a Libra, all throughout primary school. She was a rock for me during my parents’ split & all the mayhem that ensued afterward. The only bump was when I had a Libra boyf & they would just shamelessly flirt in front of everyone. Is it a Libra thing? They just can’t help it? It’s not that they wanted to go out but it seems any Libra within each’s vicinity & flirt ON, bam! It’s as if all the Libra stereotypes re flirting were fleshed out for our viewing bemusement. Quite funny in hindsight! 🙂… Read more »

Leo sun, Virgo moon, Libra rising

My best friend from all the way back is a total Libra, and I find that I’ve befriended Libras left and right now that I’ve taken to asking people’s signs more.

I love my dear Taurus friend. She’s a bit mental sometimes, but we both are very passionate types and enjoy our silly girl talk.

And I still stand by my pack of Leo guyfriends. 🙂 They need help, and it gives my motherly Virgo moon a chance to shine out.

I’m also good with drawing Cancers out of their shells, but nothing horribly bestie level status.

Virgo sun, Aries moon, Libra rising.

Almost always strong bond with Pisces women. Sometimes tense, sometimes just exactly what the doctor ordered. Oldest closest female friend is a Pisces.

Also very close to some Librans. My mum, one of my oldest friends, and one of my favourite colleagues.

Aquarian women are always super helpful, but not close. The connection is always closer with Aquarian men – no relationships – just VERY strong connections.

Oh yes, and then Scorpios – tough, but influencial.

Close men friends? Other Virgos. Hands down. Above all others. Then the Aquarians and Taureans.

i love this topic…for once i will keep my post short……ish I LOVE VIRGOS male and female. my favouritest people and best girl are virgos. they love my louche, insane side but they also make sure i keep the details under control: no bra straps showing (when they’re not sposed to), help me with my (massively overdue) taxes etc… i can be as trivial or as deeply personal as i like with my virgo girl and she’s cool – I do think however this might be because she has some serious scorpy influences and can handle the intimate conversations *… Read more »

I spent many years attached to various Scorp besties thru school years and uni and eventually married one. Also Librans. But now after the Uranus opp/Sat over natal Uranus/Sat opp and huge upheavals etc (including ditching husb and being betrayed by Aries BF) have moved on to soul mate friendship with Sagg sun/Leo moon and I’m guessing Pisces asc (her daughter has Pisces moon). And more great Aries girlfriends. Am always socially attracted to Geminis and Librans but not that soul connection as I get with Sagg and Aries. Have good platonic friendships with Aries/Leo sun males. I have a… Read more »

PS I do know other good scorps so nothing against them in particular. I think one of my lessons with scorps is due to scorp neptune square my sun and my pluto in the 7th. Didn’t intend to offend any scorps!

I’m a gemini with sun & moon & venus in gemini & scorp rising. Longest serving friend is a taurus. We have floated in & out of each others lives for over 14 years. Very different animals but I think it’s the our senses of humour that really keep the relationship alive. I have tried to find it with others but its never the same. Our relationship could not of survived if we were ever serious about anything, in fact at times where we had to behave like adults it’s been weird. Have always had great friendships with other gems,… Read more »

My longest lasting best friend is a Taurus and we are entirely different: she’s a momma and suburban housewife, I’m a single city-girl. Have had more Taurus friends than I can count but she’s the only one who’s lasted, and one Capricorn who was entirely self obsessed and wealth/materialistic, too which I believe was a big part of why we didn’t last. My fave friend ever was a Scorpio guy who seemed to totally like me just the way I was, have always wondered why I didn’t try to make him my boyfriend but probably wouldn’t have such fond memories… Read more »

i have NN in scorp as well- i get addicted to people of this sign. like literally, i LOVE them. they’re generally amazing people, my mom, my cousin, my leo ‘friend’s younger brother who is A BAJILLION TIMES more fun to talk to than her, any day…..they’re just generally amazing a mon avis. I think they think I’m a flakey dumbfuck, but i really dont care, i’ll take it

Bestie from the past have come and go.

One was Leo, as are most of my old mates from Sydney days. I have leo in saturn, mars, midheaven and moon.

Somehow, also seem to attract Cancer girls into my life and bond closely with them. Have no cancer in my chart whatsoever but last three close GFs are Crabs. S’thing about their softness mixed with a hidden steely strength, I admire. They have dark, slightly peverse sense of humour like mine too.

Oh and two very close GFs have been aqua.

I am Virgo Sun, Scorp Rising, Moon and Venus in Leo. not sure of the specifics of my pals but I have three bests. Have known them all as long as each other Taurus – We have so much fun together just doing absolutely nothing, I love it. She cooks me awesome food and I clean her apartment. She is so loyal and loving and caring. Rarely goes out and whenever I crave wholesomeness she’s the one I turn to. Taurus – So loyal, we can have fun going out or staying in. He would do anything for me and… Read more »

Cancerian has bestie/oldest mate who is Scorpio, it’s possible to go to really dark places with her and she’s not scared. Another close mate is a Leo, but she’s also married to a Cancer so I think she’s learned to get us, plus she’s ultra chilled out and confident, all the time. Also have heaps of Piscean lady friends.

i have a few different groups of friends: my girlfriends who are solid, gorgeous earth mothers, the ones i click with straight away (whether new or old friend), are always Virgo. im surrounded by them and always have been. i find they ‘get’ me and we share often a completely ridiculous sense of humour. im not sure if virgos and saggis are supposed to get on so well, but we do. ive had soulmate friendships with leos and aquarians, which often dont last particularly long- i met alot during the pluto in sag transit- where you know we meet, basically… Read more »

Saggis are closest. Oldest and best pal, since the age of 9. Always the one to make the effort to keep friendship going when things were tough, for which I am truly grateful. Emigrated last year and about to go and visit for 3 weeks to hear all about her new life. Newer pal but equally close, and in same country. Hit it off instantly, giggling in a meeting. We’ve both been through some hard times – someone I can really talk to, who “gets” me. Used to be surrounded by aquarians, mostly men. Met a lot of them in… Read more »

oh for ever I had a pride of Leos. Big enough egos to deal with juvenile scorp razor appraisals, i found. I finally got that out of system and stopped collecting them, and stopped the razor thang as well. I find for Work – aries, great go-getter colleagues, no BS. For home – cancer – nesters; for getting on the razz – pisces, (drink like a fish, go figure); and for serious debrief and organisation – my virgoan psychology mate, of course. Oh yeah, aquarians for talking BIG PICTURE and plotting revolution in the pub. Oddly, never had a scorp… Read more »

Oh my two darling best friends are both Gemini’s. I’m Taurus sun/Aqua moon/Scorp Asc and I adore both of them, BUT they also drive me to distraction. One can’t stop talking about herself (we have spent ten years talking about her, needless to say we’ve never run out of conversation) and the other is anti social stay-at-home-BORING to my party gal (and will not be dragged out of the house more than a couple of times a year). I wonder if my Venus in Gem is the clincher for us as besties…
