What kind of friend are you? Instead of consulting your Myers-Briggs personality test results or interviewing your BFFs, you should look to the stars. That’s right - your zodiac sign can determine your friendship style. 

If you’re new to this whole astrology thing, here’s a brief overview. Exactly 12 constellations, or signs, comprise the zodiac, and you determine your sign based on which constellation the Sun moved through on the day of your birth. That positioning can influence your relationship, career, friendships, and sense of humor. For example, Taureans are incredibly loyal, while Aquarians tend to be a bit more independent.

In other words, discovering your friendship style by zodiac sign is totally a thing, and you should probably look into it.

Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of activity and passion. It's no wonder those born under this sign enjoy socializing and bringing people together. As a friend, Aries loves nothing more than going on adventures with a group of besties, backpacking through another country, or trying the hot new restaurant in town.

Though a social butterfly, Aries also prefers blunt honesty - potentially causing some friend drama.

Gemini can be indecisive, and they change their mind often about what they want to do or who they want around them. As a result, this sign remains a crowd-pleaser. Gemini prefers not being tied to one group; instead, those born under this sign move fluidly between social crowds.

Gemini will keep friends on their toes because they always want to try something new.

Cancer is intuitive, sensitive, and extremely empathetic. Understandably, they prefer to spend time with friends one-on-one, rather than in large groups. Dubbed the Crab for a reason, Cancers are tough to crack, but soft in the center. They're the ultimate caregivers.

Cancer can feel moody and unsupported by those around them, though. If you're friends with one, make sure to verbalize your love and appreciation.
