The past year of isolation has made many of us feel like we’re sometimes living on our own lonely little islands. And it’s often been the generosity of other people that has brightened our days and gotten us through the tough times. Well, that and reading our horoscopes, of course. And while everyone knows that sharing is caring, the most generous zodiac signs of the astro bunch are more likely than others to freely hand out their time, energy, and resources. But which signs are the zodiac’s givers?
It’s true that some signs are more likely to be liberal with their luxuries than others, but it takes more than being born on a certain day to determine whether someone is a generous person. If you want to look deeper, there are some astrological indicators to look toward when it comes to finding generosity in a birth chart. Planet Jupiter in astrology rules over things like fortune, abundance, and expansion. In other words, having a well-aspected Jupiter in your birth chart or having Jupiter as your zodiac chart ruler can indicate a more giving personality.
It’s also important to note that people will express their generosity differently, depending on the element of their zodiac sign. For example, some people may be freehanded with money and gift-giving, while others may be more charitable with their time and emotional energy. Similarly, some signs may be more likely to be giving in one-on-one relationships, while others may save their generous streaks for charities and larger causes.
Having friends and family members who are naturally unselfish and liberal with their luxuries is a true blessing. If you’re one of the zodiac signs most likely to be generous, know that your gift of giving is much appreciated by all. Read on to find out if you’re one of the standouts.
Cancer Zodiac Signs (June 21 - July 22)
Cancers are known as one of the most maternal and protective signs of the zodiac, and they’re also incredibly generous when it comes to their emotional energy and deep ability to empathize with others. This gentle water sign is one of the cardinal signs of the zodiac, which is why they excel at initiating emotional connections and building a sense of safety within relationships. Their giving and nurturing tendencies make Cancers one of the most generous signs out there, as they’re always willing to make time for other people’s feelings and needs.
Leo Zodiac Sign (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Leos are the singular zodiac sign ruled by the sun — and what celestial body is more generous than the life-giving star at the center of our solar system? That solar association is part of why Leos are known as being one of the most generous signs of the zodiac. These gregarious fire signs have a reputation for wanting attention, which isn’t inaccurate. But Leos are actually most joyful when they’re able to bask in the warmth of the spotlight with others and share the sparkle. Leos love giving lavish gifts and celebrating other people’s accomplishments, and they’re always willing to share their boundless positivity with others.
Virgo Zodiac Signs (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Virgos may not be as obvious or flashy about their giving streak as some of the other zodiac signs on this list, but these pragmatic earth signs are actually some of the most generous members of the zodiac. Virgos are all about service to others, so they often willingly and generously give up their time and energy to help people and improve the world around them. While they may not be the most lavish gift-givers or deepest empaths, they’re the most likely sign of the zodiac to show their generosity by devoting their time and energy to other people and offering helpful acts of service.
Aquarius Zodiac Signs (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Aquarius is the sign that rules over communities, groups, and friendships — all of which require healthy give-and-take relationships in order to thrive. These qualities make Aquarians naturally generous, especially when it comes to giving to the collective. As intellectual air signs, Aquarians spend lots of time and energy trying to come up with innovative ideas to help others — always unselfishly putting the needs of the group before anything else. They’re moved by social justice and humanitarian issues, and they never hesitate to donate their resources to help boost a good cause.
