Aries: March 21st – April 19th
It’s hard to keep up with you, because you aren’t interested in going to the same Applebee’s every weekend. You want to go rock climbing and watch concerts and play volleyball on the beach. Unfortunately, not everyone is as adventurous and spontaneous as you are.
So don’t be afraid to do what you want to do alone. That’s where you’ll meet people with the same interests, people that are just as wild as you are.
Taurus: April 20th – May 20th
You feel like you don’t have any friends, because you’re too stubborn to make new friends. You want to hold onto history and hang out with the people you hung out with in high school — but people grow up. People change. They might not fit into your life anymore.
You need to be open to the idea of making new friends. Go out for drinks with your coworkers. Plan a double date with your neighbor. Meet new people.
Gemini: May 21st – June 20th
You aren’t the best at texting back. Or at answering emails. Or following through on plans. The people you hang out with aren’t really sure if you consider them your friend or not — if it’s a one-sided relationship. And that’s the problem.
You need to remember to text back. To ask your friends how they’re doing. To be the type of friend that your loved ones deserve. If you treat them right, then they’ll return the favor.
Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd
You feel like you don’t have any friends, because you spend too much of your time worrying about boys. And about your career. And about chores. You don’t have any time left for fun.
If you want that to change, you have to set aside time to relax. You deserve a break. You deserve to go out and have a drink once per week. Keep reminding yourself of that.
Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd
You feel like you don’t have any friends, because social media messes with your mind. You look at Snapchat stories and Instagram photos and wonder why your supposed ‘friends’ have been having such a good time without you. FOMO plagues you.
You have to set down your phone and stop obsessing over what everyone else is doing. Just because a friend is hanging out with someone else doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten you exist. Don’t let social media make you doubt your friendships.
Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd
You can be critical at times. When someone takes too long to answer your messages or makes an offensive Facebook post about Beyonce, you cut them out of your life. You don’t put up with any BS.
But you have to learn to be a little more forgiving. No, you shouldn’t let people walk over you, but don’t end the friendship over something silly, either. Try to hold onto that love you have for them.
Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd
You feel like you don’t have any friends, because you’re too shy to reach out to people. You expect everyone to come to you with party invitations and dinner plans — but that’s not the way the world works. With friendships, you have to give and take.
You can’t be afraid to send the first text. To invite someone over to your house. To make the first friendship move. Let others know that you actually like them and want to spend time with them.
Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st
You feel like you don’t have any real friends, because you have a huge group that you hang out with, but none of them know the real you. They hear you tell jokes and funny stories all the time, but they never hear you talk about your private life. They never hear you talk about serious issues.
If you want that to change, you should stop hanging out in such big groups. Try picking a specific person to hang out with one-on-one, so you’re able to form a more genuine connection.
Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st
You feel like you don’t have any friends, because most of the people you care about have moved out of state. Or they’re online friends that live across the ocean. They’re not around to visit you, which can make you feel like you’re alone in the world, even though that’s far from the truth.
But the next time you’re feeling lonely, remember that you can connect with people far away with more than a text message. Try making a phone call. Even better, try Skyping. It’s nice to see your friends face-to-face.
Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th
You have high standards when it comes to friendships, because you only get along with a certain type of people. You aren’t going to waste your time with frenemies that bring you down. You only want intelligent, authentic people around you. And they’re hard to find.
You just have to remember that it’s okay to have a small group of friends. One or two best friends are better than twenty or thirty close acquaintances.
Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th
You feel like you don’t have any friends, because you’re just plain lazy. You get invitations out all the time, but you never accept them, because you don’t feel like going through the trouble of putting on pants. And when you repeatedly turn down invitations out, people stop trying to involve you.
So if you want to go out, you need to get dressed and make plans with people. They want you around, so make sure they realize you’re available and up for anything.
Pisces: February 19th – March 20th
You feel like you don’t have any friends, because life isn’t the same in your twenties as it was when you were a kid. Back then, you hung out with your buddies multiple times a week. Now, you’re lucky if you see certain people once a month.
But you have to learn to accept the fact that you can be good friends with someone, even if you go weeks without speaking. That everyone has their own life and they can’t hang out every single Friday. That you still have friends, even if they’re not always around.
