While sometimes making friends is as easy as buying bread and milk from your nearest market, there are times when we find it really difficult to establish a comfortable relationship with a new friend. One, two, three topics and nothing; you just can't hit it off. When this sort of crisis happens, the only way to win them over as your friend is to get some help from the stars. Astrology can help you understand them better by simply knowing their zodiac sign, as sign characteristics and traits fit people perfectly well most of their time. Well there are of course some zodiac exceptions, but I wouldn't focus on those rare possibilities (wink wink). If you're not comfortable asking what's their zodiac sign, God bless social media: check their birthday and type it in Google asking what zodiac sign are people born under that specific date. With no further ado, let's discover a fool-proof tactic to befriend each of the 12 signs of the zodiac.
Aries: Show Your Strength and Challenge Them
The ambitious and strong willed Aries likes a friend who is strong as a rock, as they cannot stand people who cannot fight their own battles. They are fascinated by someone who challenges them, even though they won't necessarily show that. Their most compatible friends are those who can keep their impulsive decision making in check. Other ways you can befriend Aries is to be outgoing, social and willing to do crazy stuff with them.
Taurus: Be Patient and Never Force Them to Do Something
People born under this zodiac sign like people who don't push them to do things or rush them into making decisions. The stubborn bull likes doing things their way at their own pace and they will never get close with someone who forces them into anything. Taurus is known to be a little introvert by nature, so hanging out in a more private setting is ideal for them. Show your calmness and peacefulness and they will undoubtedly befriend you for life.
Gemini: Stimulate the Intellect
Befriending a Gemini doesn't require a specific tactic as these individuals are the easiest to make friends with. However, if you want to make good or even best friends with one, you just have to keep up with their talking and their intellectual requirements. Gemini is fascinated by sharp minded and imaginative individuals who like to discuss literally everything. If you can stimulate the intellect in a Gemini, you can absolutely be best friends.
Cancer: Show Them You Care
The emotional and sensitive Cancer is all about the little yet most important things in life, like genuinely caring about people and things. Family is very important for them. Cancer would like a friend who simply cares about them and treats them with the respect they believe they deserve. Since they don't like making changes in life, once you befriend a Cancer, you have a friend for life.
Leo: Give Them Attention
Leo needs a friend who will give them the attention they believe they deserve. In return, they will be very generous, loving and funny friend who will make you laugh on a regular basis. Befriending a Leo is usually not difficult, because they're social and like having a lot of friends. These individuals also like people who give them compliments, so that's another way to win over their friendship.
Virgo: Be Self-Confident
This insecure zodiac sign is not particularly skilled in relationships with people, which is why they are attracted to people who have high self confidence. The perfection chasing Virgo is known for their charisma and tendency to judge others by their looks. That being said, you can befriend a Virgo by simply being well-dressed and well-maintained (hygiene-wise). Due to their tendency to be self-critical and their low self confidence, mind your words if you want to stick around them.

Libra: Simply Be Friendly
To befriend a Libra, all you have to do is be friendly and down for having fun with them. Exchange jokes, laugh out loud, go to karaoke, go to the beach and whatever you or they have on mind - just go and do it. Being a nice person who always cares about others, Libra is attracted by someone who is a lot like them. Beauty and luxury are few other things that grab Libra's attention, as well as high emotional intelligence and deep talks.
Scorpio: Allow Them to Get Into Details During Talks Most Casual
Nothing lacks intensity when there's a Scorpio. Individuals born under this zodiac sign like to get into depths on just about any topic, so they won't like it if you try to keep away details that they ask for from them. They will immediately believe you're hiding something from them and maybe even get depressive. To befriend a Scorpio, simply accept the fact that you'll have to discuss everything in details, whether you like it or not.
Sagittarius: Ask Them for a Trip
The adventurer and ever curious Sagittarius loves having a friend who would enjoy going on trips as much as them. If you're easy going, adaptable and love living your life to the fullest, Sagittarius will quickly make you a best friend (forever). They don't like drama and small talk but rather being active and being on the move. The quickest and easiest way to befriend a Sagittarius is to simply ask them for a trip at soonest convenience.
Capricorn: Be True
Capricorn likes people who are not afraid to spill their guts, even if it means to show their weaknesses and vulnerability. These humble individuals have a lot of respect for people who are true to who they really are and they despise boastfulness. Only when they know your worth as a human can they get close with you and start a meaningful friendship.
Aquarius: Talk About the Future
If there's one thing that Aquarius can never get enough talking about, it's about advancement of technology, humanity and the world in general. The thinker of the zodiac is known for their creative and innovative thinking and they would love to have a friend to talk passionately about what they care the most. Since they are kind hearted and humanitarians, they are always concerned about making the world a better place for all.
Pisces: Enjoy the Silence When Around Them
Befriending a Pisces doesn't require a lot of talking or doing stuff together. These imaginative and dreamy individuals are spending way too much time in their head, so you should be comfortable to keep quiet when around. Although they would like to discuss many things together, there will be many times they would gladly enjoy some silence in a private setting. If you're uncomfortable not talking, your odds of becoming friends with Pisces are low, because they don't like being pressured to talk when they don't want to (which is often).
