Aries: notice and remember You are naturally outgoing and caring and, quite frankly, accustomed to being people’s favorite. But don’t get too comfortable. There is work required in friendship, and usually it has to do with paying attention. The little things matter. Your friends are always giving you hints about what they want in life and what might be meaningful or helpful to them. All you have to do is to take note and follow through.
Taurus: be eventful You’re a true-blue kind of friend. Your consistent quality of attention fosters trust and establishes a strong foundation of the relationship. Take it to the next level by creating special moments with your friends. Give yourself and your friend something to laugh about as you grow older.
Gemini: give one-on-one time You twins are social butterflies who like to do things in groups. While a boisterous gathering is usually a blast, the intimacy that keeps friendship alive can get lost in the crowd. So be sure to fortify your friendships with time devoted exclusively to each person.
Cancer: be vulnerable You have lovely manners and an air of decorum that keeps your friendly unions supportive and positive. Just remember that it’s okay to be honest with the people who love you, even when your true feelings are not pretty. If you always try to hide emotions like sadness or anger, you’ll miss an opportunity for healthy bonding.
Leo: just listen There is no skill that’s more rare and precious to a friendship than good listening. It is done with the mouth closed and the heart open. It comes without anecdotes from your own life or stories about when you were in a similar position. Undivided attention is a gift that doesn’t cost anything to give, and yet it’s so valuable.
Virgo: be easy People mess up sometimes. Your grace in overlooking the mistakes and flaws of your friends will elevate you to sainthood. And in the unlikely case that you too should blunder in the future, you’ll be deserving of the same mercy. And the best part about letting these minor blunders go is the lightness of being that accompanies acts of forgiveness.
Libra: make it about you sometimes It’s probably hard for you to believe this, but it is possible for a person to be too selfless. So, you’re more comfortable giving than taking. You still have to take when it’s your turn. Otherwise it makes other people feel uncomfortable about the lopsided energy flow in the relationship.
Scorpio: be honest – but not too honest Your talent for seeing the bottom line truth is absolutely astounding. You know when your friend is fooling herself in some regard or when she could be doing a better job at something. But part of being a good friend is in not saying all that you know. Honor the notion that each person’s process and pacing is different.
Sagittarius: put your feelers out Your moods are easy to read. Mostly, you tell people exactly what state you’re in, and that keeps your relationships straightforward. Note that some people are not as forthright with their emotions – they just haven’t adopted such an uncomplicated approach. Be sensitive to how your friends are feeling, and check in often with them on an emotional level.
Capricorn: make and keep friendly appointments Typically a Capricorn’s busy life includes work, extra work and plenty of preparation for more work. Friends help you break up that relentless routine. Put your friends on the schedule just like they were one of your other important appointments and keep those meetings sacred.
Aquarius: bring on the compliments Your friends love to get your approval. When you notice qualities in them that they don’t realize, what you are really doing is loving them! And here’s the bonus: the positive light you shine on your friends bounces right back to you. Your compliments to friends actually build your own selfesteem.
Pisces: establish boundaries Most Pisces intuitively create close relationships without knowing how they did it. It’s so easy for you to be compassionate and empathetic that your friendships are intimate right from the start. So it’s crucial that you’re also mindful to give your friends space.
