When your partner is your best friend, you’re always there for each other, in good times and bad. They’re the first person you want to come home to, and the only person you may ask for advice.
You have a lot in common and have many shared interests. You enjoy hanging out together and never run out of things to talk about. It’s scary how much you’re alike! You know your partner is your biggest hype-person and they always have your back because you’ve got theirs.
And when your partner is also your best friend, as is the case for some zodiac signs in astrology, you tend to develop shared traits.
Your partner may be your best friend, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have any other friends — you do, and the cool thing is that your friends love your partner, and you all hang out together. Having your partner as a best friend doesn’t make your support system smaller; in fact, it makes it stronger.
As a couple, you and your partner are equally comfortable socializing, or just staying home and doing nothing. It doesn’t have to be complicated for you to just enjoy being with each other.
1. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini’s partner is their best friend because Gemini can talk with them for hours and still not run out of things to say. Gemini and their partner enjoy going out and doing things. They have mini-adventures together and just have fun.
They’re so close that it’s almost as if they have their own language and jokes that nobody gets but them.
2. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
A sense of humor comes into play for Aries and the special relationship they have with their partners. For Aries and their partner, no one makes them laugh as hard as each other.
Aries’ partner can keep up with the Ram’s lively personality and their inability to sit still. They both love to try new things and have a constant thirst to get the most out of every day. Their partner needs to be as energetic as Aries or have a calming presence in Aries’ life.
3. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius tend to have a lot of friends — they’re naturally friendly, non-judgmental, and genuinely like people. It’s important for Aquarius’spartner to also be their best friend because it solidifies their presence in Aquarius’ life.
One of the ways Aquarius knows their partner is also their best friend is the way they can argue with them and it won’t ruin their relationship. Their partner also has their back, even when they don’t see eye to eye.
4. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
For Leos, a sign with many friends, it can create more of a bond if their partner is also their best friend. Leo knows they can count on their partner to be there for them, no matter what. Leo’s partner is their greatest supporter and advocate.
The Lion is very loyal, and they require all the people in their life, especially their partners, to be loyal as well. Leos need to feel their partner is completely invested in them for their relationship to survive.
5. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
When your partner is your best friend, the way it often is with Scorpio, you have the gift of being able to let down any pretense and be yourself. Scorpio and their partner don’t have to have elaborate plans in order to have a good time together; they can just hang out and binge-watch and be happy.
When you know someone so well that they take on many roles in your life as a partner, friend, and advocate, it brings a higher level of trust in your relationship.
6. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
