Kindness is a quality we seek out in partners and friends. If you’re lucky, you’re surrounded by it. As you suss people out for their kindness quotient, you may want to factor in their zodiac sign—for fun.
We’re here to help, so we ranked the zodiac signs from best to worst in terms of kindness. Let’s dive into this lighthearted and playful ranking…
1) Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Most compassionate of all
When it comes to kindness, Pisces takes the crown! Pisces people have compassionate souls, plus hearts as big as the ocean.
They are known for their empathetic nature and their genuine concern for others, so they make great partners and friends.
They have an innate ability to understand and support those around them, making them the kindest of all signs.
2) Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The sweetest advocate
Coming in at a close second, we have Libra, the harmony-seeking sign. Libras have a natural inclination toward fairness and justice, so they’ll consistently be advocates for underdogs.
And the best part is, they genuinely care about the well-being of others and strive to create a balanced and peaceful environment. What’s not to love?!
Libras’ kind hearts shine through their willingness to listen and offer support.
3) Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Nurturing tender hearts
Cancers are both nurturing and caring. They make excellent mothers and besties.
People born to the cancer sign have hearts that overflow with kindness. They are incredibly loving and protective of their loved ones, too, so if you have one in your life, consider yourself lucky.
Cancers will go above and beyond to make those around them feel safe and cared for. Their acts of kindness are often done with a warm and tender touch.
4) Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Pillars of support
Taking the fourth spot, Taurus hearts are filled with kindness though they might not always show it.
Unlike the other signs on this list, Tauruses won’t typically wear their hearts on their sleeves.
However, they make loyal and devoted friends who will always show up for their loved ones because of one major trait – they are dependable and steadfast.
Thanks to their reliability and consistency, you can always trust your taurus people to be pillars of support.
5) Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius individuals are by far the most adventurous and optimistic of all the signs. While those qualities are not directly related to kindness, their positive energy radiates with goodness.
Sagittariuses have a genuine concern for humanity and are always up for lending a helping hand.
Due to this generosity and their belief in the goodness of others, they’re a delight to be around.
6) Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Practical and reliable support
Capricorn, the practical and responsible sign, shows kindness through their actions.
While Capricorn people may not be the most outwardly affectionate, their hearts are still filled with genuine care.
They will often express their kindness by providing practical support and guidance to their loved ones, making them one of the most reliable people to have in your corner.
7) Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’ll feel valued and seen
As the most social and versatile sign, Geminis spread their kindness through their words.
They have a knack for brightening someone’s day with their witty remarks and charming conversation. Fun at social settings and supportive all around, Geminis know to make you feel valued.
Of all the signs, they’re the ones who can honestly say, “I see you,” while they shower you with verbal acts of kindness.
8) Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Analytical with a side of thoughtfulness
Virgos are analytical and detail-oriented, sure. That doesn’t correlate with kindness, we know, but what’s great about the Virgo is their thoughtfulness.
They may not be known for their overflowing displays of emotion, but their kindness lies in their keen eye for noticing the needs of others.
Case in point, my husband is a Virgo, and I’ve always said that I married him because he’s the kindest person I know.
I can pinpoint the moment I fell in love with him: when I witnessed him show kindness to a homeless man on a New York City street.
They’re always there to lend a hand. They show their kindness through practical gestures that make a real difference.
9) Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Humanitarian at large
Aquarius, the sign full of free spirits, may not be at the top of the list, but that’s probably because they approach kindness differently than most.
This sign is innovative and independent, and they express their compassion through their desire to make the world a better place.
My sign is Aquarius, and I do always find myself advocating for people in need. I will often donate money for charitable causes I encounter on social media, in fact.
As true humanitarians, Aquarians are often involved in making positive change on a larger scale, which is inherently kind.
10) Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Caring to their close circle
Leos are known for being confident and bold, but they bring their kindness through their radiant presence.
Their warm hearts may sometimes be hindered by their focus more on their own needs. However, their genuine care and affection for their loved ones can still shine through their generous spirit.
They will often share that love with their close circle, so let’s hope you’re in it!
11) Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Known for their passionate and ambitious ways, the Aries sign may not always prioritize kindness as their top trait.
That said, their fiery nature can be expressed through acts of kindness, so it’s not like they’re the opposite of kind.
For example, Aries people show their kindness by pushing others to reach their full potential.
They might not be as inclined to do random acts of kindness as the other signs on this list, but if you need encouragement to chase your dreams, they’ll be right there with you. Like the cheerleaders that they are!
12) Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Care through support
Scorpio can be intense and mysterious, so they can be hard to gauge. They have landed at the bottom of our ranking because they’re not traditionally kind. (Sorry, Scorpios!)
That said, Scorpios do manage to have their own way of expressing their care.
Their loyalty and dedication to their loved ones are unparalleled, and some Scorpios (not all) show their kindness through their unwavering support.
Remember, this ranking is all in good fun, and kindness can be found in all signs. Each zodiac sign brings their unique flavor of kindness to the world, making the tapestry of human connections all the more beautiful and diverse.
Beyond astrological traits, people are also shaped by their experiences and personality.
