Some people are very sensitive to the feelings of others. Whether they show up early to help at an event or take off their shoes at the entrance so as not to get dirty, they always put other people's needs first.
They'll ask how you're feeling, use their good manners and show kindness above all else. And their horoscope might have something to do with it. Read on to find out which zodiac signs astrologers consider the most caring, from the most concerned to the most altruistic.
Taureans instantly make others feel a welcoming warmth. Being an Earth sign, they approach things in a practical and logical way which enables them to understand what others need. “If they see someone in trouble, they'll offer support and help,” says Tara Bennet, astrologer and spiritual coach at Mediumchat. Their loyalty goes a long way, and they'll do anything to show their loved ones that they care.
“Capricorns are always reliable and incredibly pragmatic,” says Raquel Rodriguez, astrologer and founder of Your Zodiac. Like Taureans, these Earth signs are pragmatic, which contributes to their caring nature. They react to situations with genuine interest and compassion, and are able to quickly find solutions to people's problems. Although very independent, Capricorns feel pride when they are available to others.
As a water sign, Pisceans are naturally empathetic, always putting others before themselves. “They have an innate sense of understanding and compassion, which drives them to act with great thought and consideration,” Rodriguez explains. These fish will be there for you in your happiest or darkest moments, and are more than willing to serve as a shoulder to cry on. Their attention span, however, can be their downfall. Even if you've wronged them, they'll stay nice to you instead of expressing their feelings.
Virgo is the sign of service. “They're always ready to reach out and often prioritize other people's needs over their own,” Rodriguez explains. These Earth signs are incredibly observant and attentive to everything going on around them. Their attention to detail is unmatched, and their desire to be there for others makes them exceptionally caring. “They always think two steps ahead, anticipate the needs of others and act accordingly,” adds Rodriguez.
As a sign ruled by the Moon, the celestial star that governs emotions, Cancers are constantly focused on feelings. Known for their protective qualities, they are natural nurturers. They always know what people need, and are often called “the parents of the zodiac”. “They're always there to serve as a shoulder to cry on and support you, plus they'll give up everything in a heartbeat for you,” explains Bennet. And best of all, they'll be more than happy to do it.
Libras are the biggest arrangers, which means they always put others first (sometimes at their own expense). “Librans find pleasure in making others happy and will take the time to understand people and their needs,” explains Bennet. When they're organizing something, which they love as a sociable sign, they're at their best every time. Rodriguez adds that they have a strong sense of justice and always seek balance in relationships. And let's not forget that they are ruled by Venus, the planet of love, so it's natural for them to lead their lives with kindness and compassion.
