While each Zodiac sign will argue that they’re the best, we have to keep it real – every sign is different and they’re all good (and bad) in their own unique ways.
So rather than pitting signs against each other, let’s take a look at what is Written in your Star very best at. That way, you know exactly who to turn to in times of need!
Aries dates: March 21 to April 19Their best traits: Fearless, passionate, and competitive – these traits sum up an Aries’ personality. Like the ram, an Aries charges at challenges headfirst, making them excellent leaders and co-workers.
Leading teams, assuming challenging positions at work, and taking risks. With an Aries travel-buddy, you can expect anything along the lines of bungee jumping, cliff diving, and exotic food trips!
Taurus dates: April 20 to May 20Their best traits: A Taurus is solid as a rock in more ways than one! This earth sign is generally practical, peaceful, and extremely hardworking. Their calm nature and dependability make them the perfect person to go to in times of crisis.
- Best at: Executing plans, showing up where they’re needed, committing to something. Because they’re such hardworking creatures, Taureans also like to indulge every once in a while. Expect a Taurean friend to pamper you when you’re stressed!
Gemini dates: May 21 to June 20Their best traits: Geminis have the gift of gab. They’re endlessly curious and will prod you to divulge your life story within minutes of meeting you and they’re flexible enough to feel comfortable wherever you put them. Take a Gemini to any party and they will thrive. That being said, they’ve got the wits and the charm to talk their way out of most sticky situations.

Leo dates: July 23 to August 22Their best traits: The lyrics “the party don’t start ‘til I walk in” may have been sung by a Piscean, but these words ring true for every Leo. These natural-born performers are so adept at entertaining people that for many Leos, it becomes their lifelong profession!

- Best at: Their worst trait could come in handy when you’re feeling a little naughty. We 100 percent don’t condone bad behaviour – so you didn’t hear it from us – but if you’re plotting on revenge, you can rely on a Scorpio to have your back.
Sagittarius dates: November 22 to December 21Their best traits: At their best, Sags are idealistic, curious, and optimistic. They have a thirst for knowledge, wisdom, and truth, and will go to the ends of the earth (literally!) to find whatever it is they’re looking for.
