Everyone needs a compliment now and then because they need the validation that they are doing something right in their lives. That is because everyone, regardless of their zodiac sign, can be their own worst critic. Besides, you want to say kind and uplifting things to those who you care about, so they keep you in their lives. However, not every kind of thing you say will jive well with everyone.
Some people tend to become offended by even the kindest compliments. Perhaps something about the praise gets under their skin for whatever reason they have. If you want to know the right thing to say to those who you care about or need to keep in your life, you can learn about the best things to say to each zodiac sign right now.
Aries – “You Are the One Who I Look Up To”
If you know someone who has an Aries sign in your life, and chances are you do – then the one thing you will want to tell them is that you look up to them. That compliment makes them happy because they know they are the ones who are brave, heroic in many ways, and they do have a competitive streak. Even though Aries wants to look after their needs first, they want to inspire others and go after what they want. Therefore, telling Aries that you look up to them is something that they do want to hear.
Taurus – “I Trust You”
If you know a Taurus, you probably see them as stubborn but at the same time very hardworking. You can tell them that you think their tenacity is respectable, but that is not something that they find particularly moving. They don’t dislike the compliment, but it does not make them happy either. The one thing that is very important to Taurus is that they stick to it when they make a promise. When they are at a place at a certain time, you can bet they will do that. If you tell them a secret, they will keep it. The Taurus is trustworthy, and if you tell them that you trust them, then that is a compliment they want to hear.
Gemini – “You Are So Cool”
If you know a Gemini, then chances are you know that they can be a lot of fun as well as stimulating. You can bet that you will get into a long and interesting conversation with a Gemini. At the same time, you will also have fun at any party as long as the Gemini is present. You can always tell Gemini that you find them interesting since they have so many fascinating things to say. However, you are telling them something that they already knew. You are better off telling Gemini that you think they are cool. They are fun and fascinating, and that is cool! Gemini loves hearing that about themselves from others.
Cancer – “I Love How You Make Me Comfortable”
Cancers are known to be very nurturing and caring, and all they want is to take good care of those around them. At the same time, it is essential to them that others acknowledge that they go out of their way to help others. Cancer is all about the home as well, and you can compliment them on their homes, and they will appreciate it. However, Cancers are deep and would understand more of a profound compliment. If you tell Cancer that they make you feel comfortable, that will make their day. They want to make you feel that way, and when you acknowledge that it is truly music to their ears.
Leo – “I Admire You”
Leo always wants to be in the spotlight and wants admiration. It does not take much to please a Leo as long as you say something kind to them about themselves. If you tell them that you admire them, then that will be enough to make them happy. You can elaborate on that further, too, such as you can tell them that you respect their confidence, independent ways, as well as how they speak the truth about not beating around the bush. All of those compliments will satisfy Leo, and they will thank you for it by taking you out for coffee because they are generous. You can tell them you admire that about them too.
Virgo – “I Love How Observant You Are”
Virgo wants to be perfect at everything they do, and it bothers them that perfection cannot ever be achievable because it is not realistic. You see that they are clean, organized, and very meticulous and analytical. If they make a mistake, they get upset, and you do not want to tell them that they do great work anyway.
That does not make them happy because they want to be better than great; they want to be better than excellent. However, the one thing that they do like it when you tell them that they are so observant. They like knowing that they are great with reading people, observing and analyzing situations, staying up to date with important news that affects those in the area. Tell them that you like how observant they are because they do like others seeing that about themselves.
Libra – “You Inspire Me to Be Better”
Libra is very charming, and those who have the sign are very relationship-oriented. They genuinely want to help others, and they also want to know that they are helping. Therefore, if you were to tell Libra that they are why you have become a better person, that will make them feel fantastic. Not only does it make Libra feel great to hear that they are helping you in the self-improvement area, but they will remain encouraged that they can find new methods that will keep inspiring you to keep getting better. Libras can be quite insecure, and if you tell them that they are an inspiration to you, that motivates them to keep doing what they are doing.
Scorpio – “You Are Fascinating”
Scorpio is what you would call an enigma. That is because they are curious, magnetic, private, mysterious, intense, and surprising. Scorpio does not allow anyone into their world unless they have every reason to trust them. However, Scorpios can be helpful at unexpected times because they are excellent problem-solvers.
For instance, you struggle to work with a computer program, and the Scorpio sees that you are struggling. So, they’ll go up to you and ask you what you are trying to do. Then you tell them, and they know the code on how to get the program working. You are thankful for their help and yet confused about how they knew how to solve the issue quickly. You can tell Scorpio to make them feel good because they are fascinating. After all, that is how they want to appear.
Sagittarius – “I Love How You Find the Fun in Anything”
Sagittarius is always up for a good party, a good adventure, and some fun. Their preference is to travel the world, but that is not always attainable. They know that, and that is why they find other fun things to do even in their homes. You may think that a Sagittarius is a type that wants to live an extravagant life to have the best time. However, they can find enjoyment by playing a few games and reading some uplifting books.
Most people will become bored if that is all they had to do, especially during the COVID-19 lockdowns. Sagittarius had an easier time than you thought because of their nature. When you tell them that you love how they can find the fun in anything, they like to hear that. Sagittarius does not want to face boredom, so they choose to stay stimulated in any situation.
Capricorn – “I Can Always Count on You to Complete Any Job”
The Capricorn individual is all about ambition and reliability. They take their work and other matters seriously as long as it is relevant to them. They also care very much about their families. The one thing that they want others to acknowledge about them is that they are punctual, reliable, and hard workers.
Capricorn wants to be the one who will show you that they can get any job done and will live up to their promises for completing any task. Therefore, if you tell them that you know you can count on them to finish any job, you have told Capricorn the best thing. That is because you acknowledged how hard they work and that their work is appreciated.
Aquarius – “There Really Is No One Like You”
The Aquarius individual is the one that marches to their drummer, and the last thing they want is to ever be like anyone else. They embrace their uniqueness, and they do not want to conform in any way, except for obeying some laws if ethics are tied to it. Since Aquarians are fascinating, they like others telling them too. However, the best thing you can tell an Aquarius is that there really is no one else like them out there. When you tell them that, it is confirmation that their individuality is shining through which is exactly what they want.
Pisces – “I Love How You Know Exactly What to Say”
The Pisces individual is very caring, sensitive, intuitive, and has a nurturing side. That is why they often make excellent therapists. If you are upset or worried about something, you can count on Pisces to help provide you with the encouragement you need. Additionally, they know how to choose the right words to give you the comfort you want. If you tell them that they make you feel better because they know exactly what to say during difficult times, that is a positive thing to say to Pisces. They want to make sure that they are helping you while providing you advice instead of having the opposite effect.
Now you know what the best things to say to those of each zodiac sign. Remember that if you know someone’s moon and rising sign, you will want to use compliments that are best suited for those signs too. What if you want to say something positive to someone and you don’t know their sign? For starters, you can always ask them before you tell them the nice thing you want to say. If that seems too odd and random to you, then go and compliment them anyway. Odds are they will appreciate it. Any type of acknowledgment is better than no acknowledgment and always remember that.
