Zodiac Compatibility in Friendship
Understanding your horoscopes and zodiac signs are not limited to career, wealth, and love. The universe also reveals to each of us how we develop friendships with one another. Each zodiac sign is unique, with special chakras and energies flowing from their astrological symbols. With each zodiac sign, each person is more drawn to certain characteristics and traits depending on their zodiac and their compatibility with other signs. Even in friendship, Astrology Answers can reveal how your zodiac defines what kind of friend you are, and what you look for in friendships.
Some of the strongest friendships across the zodiac signs share common ground with strong love matches as well. After all, strong friendships often make up the foundation of life-long relationships and happy marriages. Often, simple aspects of astrology help define similarities between the different astrological houses. For example, understanding the basics about the triplicities and quadruplicities in astrology shows the common traits between Cardinal, Mutable, and Fixed zodiac signs. In the same way, learning more about what shared traits are common throughout the astrological elements will also help provide better insight into what makes for great zodiac compatibility.
Zodiac Compatibility: The Elements
There are four elemental groups in astrology that are represented through each of the 12 zodiac signs. Each zodiac sign carries one ruling element that helps define their personalities, explaining their traits and characteristics. An element is one of the basic building blocks of not just the Universe, but also a unique part of your zodiac identity.
There are 4 elements:
No matter what element rules your zodiac sign, each is a cornerstone of your identity in some way, whether it is through your own zodiac sign or through your best friend’s sign. The elements, just like the different astrology signs, complement each other and can share energy to and from one another. It is no surprise that the zodiac signs that share the most common traits may avoid conflict based off shared preferences and their common ground on how to approach life. When the same basic tenets of zodiac traits are shared with you and your best friend, you may find yourselves not only bonding closer together doing activities that reflect your personalities, but will also experience your spirit being renewed. Each zodiac sign has their own way of relaxing! And, the element ruling your sign is a great place to understand what places and activities best help you rejuvenate your mind, body, spirit, and soul.
The Fire Element
The zodiac signs that share the Fire element include:
When planning a trip or vacation with a Fire sign, remember their core tenets of personality. Fire signs are all about consuming excitement and action. Often, this means that the fire sign in your life will feel most connected to their zodiac sign and rejuvenated when outside, or able to engage in some sort of physical activity. Intensity is a friend to the fire sign, helping them have an outlet to let out all of their passionate heat and steam.
The Water Element
The zodiac signs that share the Water element include:
Success for any trip or vacation with a Water sign is best going to be found through intentionality and quality time spent together. To best rejuvenate and bond with Water signs, do not spend too much time focusing on the location – that is, unless you are going somewhere with water. Failing to avoid cliché, Water signs’ spirits are deeply connected to water and feel a spiritual source of healing and restoration when they are able to spend time around a beach, lake, or any body of water. Water signs will find peace and be able to access a source of calmness when around a body of water, so, planning a trip to any location with water is always a key to success. Again, location is not the focus for Water signs. Any kind of activity that focuses on time spent together, even if it is just talking at a restaurant or watching a movie together in the theatre, will heighten the Water signs’ energy.
The Air Element
The zodiac signs that share the Air element include:
When planning a trip with an Air sign, focus on balancing tranquillity and opportunity for fun. Just like the Libra symbol of the scale, it’s all about balance when finding time away with an Air sign. Creating a give and take between finding downtime and spending time doing something energetic and exciting is the best way to plan a trip with an Air zodiac friend in your life. Making one of a kind memories with those that carry the Air element that continue to provide conversation later on will serve as outstanding opportunities. One great example is finding a long hike where the Air sign can talk about their thoughts and ideas on your way to a beautiful scenic outlook.
The Earth Element
The zodiac signs that share the Earth element include:
Loyalty, trust, and responsibility are key characteristics for the three Earth zodiac signs, making them incredibly compatible astrology signs when examining friendships, because, relationships are top priorities for Earth signs. Planning a trip with a Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn earth sign will be fun, because each of these signs enjoys their fair share of an easy going good time. Sitting outside with a nice glass of wine, or kayaking downstream – anything that allows earth signs to get away from work and spend time with their loved ones and friends will be time well earned and another great opportunity for these signs to refresh themselves.
