To give you an idea of what kind of personality you gel with the most, we’re turning back the hands of time to have a peek at who your best friend from history would be.

Are you ready to find out who your historical bestie would be? Let’s get to it.


As the Cardinal Fire Sign, you try to get along with just about everybody, but in both love and friendship you are most compatible with the Air Signs. Your fellow friendship you are most compatible with the Air Signs. Your fellow Cardinal Sign in the Air Sign group, Libra, is perhaps your most compatible mate and friend. This makes Libra Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite and the Nobel Prize an ideal historical bestie for you. He was as intellectually curious as you are and loved to make an entrance with a bang. Just like you!


As the Fixed Earth Sign ruled by Venus, you are both practical and loving, with a very creative heart that is open to all of the right people. A Pisces or Scorpio would be your best friend or lover, but Pisces is more flexible in many ways making it the most compatible best friend match for you.

If you lived in the eighteenth century, you may have been best friends with the fourth president of the United States, James Madison, a notable Pisces who believed that the sanctity of human rights should be cherished and perpetuated for all of time. He was also the father of the Constitution, and embodied success (Which you love), with a big heart (Which you love even more).

Scorpio lady Marie Antoinette, the leader of the French Revolution, was also around at this time and would have been great for you to dish your big secrets to.


As the Mutable Sign of the Air Signs, you love someone who can communicate quickly, without beating around the bush. Someone with a humanitarian outlook who uses their success to change the world is also very appealing to you. Your best match then would be Aquarius, the Fixed Sign in your Air Sign element.

From history, the first signatory on America’s Declaration of Independence, John Hancock, is someone you would love to emulate when you make your mark on the world. Nothing is more admirable to you than the fact that one signature can change the world, and be remembered for the rest of time. For that, John Hancock is a hero and an ideal best friend for you from the history books.


As the Cardinal Sign of the Water Signs, Cancer, you have a tough, crab like shell but are all warm and gooey inside. You are also the zodiac’s mother nurturer, so although you keep a close circle, you aren’t as tough as people think. This would make Walt Disney an ideal best friend from history for you, as it was Walt Disney who said, “Laughter is America’s best export.”

With his iconic work in film that delves both into fantasy and the hearts of children, were you best friends with Disney you would share many laughs, while also changing the world and families forever.


As the Fixed Sign of the Fire Signs, you are both stable and secure in your foundations, but also the life of every party. You need a best friend who can ground you. You also greatly admire leadership and a grounded nature, and this is what you look for in a life long companion such as a best friend. Capricorn, the Cardinal Earth Sign is a great bestie for you. Leo President Obama is married to his best friend, Capricorn Michelle Obama.

From history, you would have made great friends with the firecracker poet Edgar Allen Poe, also a Capricorn. Here you would be a bestie match made in heaven as Poe characterized both the successful groundedness you crave, while being a romantic at heart.


Being the Mutable Sign of the Earth Signs, there are few people with whom you can’t get along. For best friends, you need someone who will take charge once in a while and pull you out of your hermit state. Aries is a natural best friend selection for you as they will get you out of the cave once in a while, and most are very smart and born humanitarians.

President Thomas Jefferson, the third American president and also a drafter of the Declaration of Independence is both an Aries and a natural success with the smarts to back it up. Jefferson was also aligned with everything you believe in, and you both would have gotten along swimmingly.


As the Cardinal Air Sign symbolized by the Justice Card in the Tarot, you are the zodiac sign that is all about peace and harmony. You are easy to get along with and friends with just about everybody. You love a bestie who is sparkly and passionate, and able to breathe some fun into your wind of excitement and love of luxury. This makes Fixed Fire Sign Leo a wonderful bestie for you.

Your perfect historical bestie would be Leo First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who was fair and diplomatic, but also as beautiful and kind as you are.


You are the Fixed Sign of the Water Signs and a natural detective who is obsessed with life’s great mysteries. The reason you love uncovering secrets lies in your quest for world justice and human rights. This makes anyone fighting for those same things your ideal bestie. From an historical perspective, your bestie would be women’s rights activist and leader of the suffrage movement, Susan B. Anthony.

She was an Aquarius and fellow Fixed Sign who was not only a suffragist, but also an abolitionist who was just as obsessed about justice in the world as you are.


You are the Mutable Fire Sign ruled by Jupiter, and although you come off as being the life of the party, you are also very worldly and globally minded. If it has a spiritual or humanitarian component, you are on board for that event or personal bestie. You get along with almost everyone as well due to your Jupiter traits, but bond best with fellow Mutable Sign Virgo.

The most famous historical Virgo who would gel with your beliefs and global outlook would be Mother Teresa. Believe it or not, she knew how to have fun, enjoyed travel as much as you do, and changed the world in the process. Just like you hope to and dream to one day!


As the Cardinal Sign of the Earth Signs, you have a tendency to get a bad rap when it comes to your emotions. You do have them, you just wait to share them with the right person. This makes fellow Cardinal Sign Cancer not only an ideal mate for you, but also an ideal best friend. Cancer wears their heart on their sleeve and balances your emotional reserve perfectly, and is also as intelligent as you like them to be as well.

The most famous historical Cancer with whom you would be compatible at the best friend level would be Ernest Hemingway. You appreciate that Hemingway liked to be reclusive sometimes, but was able to express himself emotionally in a way that you really “get” when not many others did. Hemingway also strove for success, albeit unconventionally, another trait you deeply admire in your best friends.


Being the Fixed Sign of the Air Signs, you are the most low key emotionally in the entire zodiac. It’s not that you don’t have emotions, you just use your brain more than your heart. You need a bestie who will balance this out in you, and also understand why you think more than you express emotions. This makes fellow Fixed Sign Taurus an ideal bestie or companion for you.

You also have a humanitarian streak that has you thinking of how every action you perform touches the world at large. This would make Taurus Florence Nightingale a perfect bestie for you historically. She was one of the most famous nurses of all time, because she used both her brains and her heart to heal the world, one person at a time.


You are the Mutable Water Sign and the zodiac romantic. Pisces is associated with being most compatible with fellow Water Sign Scorpio. This is true in either love or friendship, as Scorpio seems to get you more than any other sign. You look for someone who has a heart, in both friendship and love, and Scorpio has that in spades. You are both also very creative and dynamic artistically, and that’s what you are attracted to in friendship, and what is attractive to you.

Marie Curie was one of the most famous Scorpios of all time, known for her creativity in the field of physics and chemistry. She was known for saying science was both beautiful and creative, and this is very appealing to you. As a result, she was the first woman to win Nobel prizes in two different categories. Her creativity and love for the world, would have made her an ideal historical best friend for you and your big heart.
