Friendship is a bond that’s based on many pillars, and loyalty stands as one of the strongest, most enduring of them.
Take out loyalty, and you’ll have a real problem maintaining any friendship or relationship.
Now, while some friends come and go, there are those who stick by your side through thick and thin.
They are always ready to go the extra mile.
These friends are the ones who truly understand the essence of friendship. Forget just being there for a good time, or just being friends for money/holidays/because they want to hang out with your dog.
Interestingly, there are some zodiac signs which tend to fare better than others when it comes to loyalty in friendships.
So what zodiac signs tend to make for better friends, and how do their characteristics tend to present themselves in friendships?
Let’s find out!
Taurus is known for their steadfast and down-to-earth nature.
They are the ones who are always there for their friends, offering a shoulder to lean on or a listening ear.
They are not the type to back out when things get tough, but rather, they stand firm, proving their loyalty in the most challenging situations.
Their friendship is not just about hanging out and having fun.
(Because let’s be honest – sometimes, Taurus’ are not always the most fun of individuals…)
But that doesn’t detract from the fact that they’re there during the storms and ready to help you navigate through them, even if they’re not even slightly implicated.
They value trust and honesty above all else, so if you’ve got a Taurus as a friend, know that they’ll stick around no matter what.
A Taurus’s loyalty isn’t about convenience or temporary benefits.
They stick by their friends because they genuinely care and believe in maintaining lifelong bonds.
Their stubbornness might be a challenge at times, but it’s this very trait that makes them unwavering when it comes to their loyalty in friendships.
So, if you’re fortunate enough to have a Taurus as a friend, rest assured – they’re not just passing through; they’re here for the long haul.
Cancerians are known for their deeply emotional and nurturing nature.
They are the caretakers of the zodiac, always ready to lend a hand or provide emotional support.
Their loyalty in friendships is [ez-toc][ez-toc].
They have an uncanny ability to sense when their friends are going through a tough time, often reaching out even before being asked for help.
Their instinctive need to nurture and protect makes them a rock for their friends to lean on.
Cancers are also incredibly understanding.
They don’t back away when their friends make mistakes or go through rough patches. Instead, they stick around, offering compassion and understanding, proving their loyalty time and time again.
Their advice is often second to none (even if you turn up your nose and don’t listen. And even then, they’ll still stick around and never say “I told you so!”
They don’t believe in fair-weather friendships; they’re in it for the long haul.
The friendships they make are certainly not based on convenience but on genuine love and care.

They treat their friends like family, and their loyalty is as strong as a lion’s pride.
They’re the kind of friends who will be there for you not just in your darkest hours but also in your brightest moments.
Leos are not the type to abandon their friends in times of need.

Capricorns are known for their practical and responsible nature.
At times, a bit like the mother-hen figure of the group, clucking away and making sure you’ve eaten/seen the dentist/are looking after yourself, they go above and beyond when it comes to expressing loyalty.
They are the type of friends who will always show up when needed, and not only offer emotional support but also practical help.

Instead, they stay, weathering the storm with you. In silent companionship even, as they know this is often what a friend needs most.
Capricorns are just incredibly reliable, trustworthy, and incredibly loyal.
