"If you have a big vision, ask a Sagittarius to help you make sense of the full picture," says Lauren DeGolia, clarity consultant and astrologer at Fresh Start Registry. They're the most reliable when it comes to fitting all the pieces together and they have a wealth of knowledge to support you with.

Sag energy is one of a kind, as they're quite the optimists. They might be lacking a bit when it comes to committing to something long-term—thanks to their wanderlust vibe—but they still want to support you no matter what.

Scorpios are quite reliable, but you have to get to know them first. Though they may be secretive and mysterious with most people, once they form a relationship with someone, their loyalty and dedication are unmatched.

"Once a Scorpio lets you in, they'll be a strong ally," says Raquel Rodriguez, astrologer and founder of Your Zodiac. They'll protect you at all costs, and will even go so far as to enact revenge or hold a grudge against anyone who wronged you.

Cancers are natural nurturers, so it's no surprise that they're probably some of the most reliable people in your life. DeGolia says they're always tuned into others' needs and willing to roll out a whole party just to celebrate you.

They also love being needed. While their actions benefit you in the long run, understand that they simultaneously have personal motives on their mind, too.

These grounded earth signs are exceptionally practical. "Their analytical nature and meticulous approach to everything they do ensures that they're reliable and trustworthy," says Rodriguez.

Whether you need help with something at work or want to decompress from your home life, Virgo will be by your side every step of the way. And should a crisis arise, they'll have no issue staying calm.

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, is Libra's ruler, so when this sign supports you, there is no doubt they'll go all out. DeGolia explains that their reliability stems from knowing that helping someone else helps them, too. "It's the whole, 'when you get better, I get better mentality,'" she says.

Their unyielding need to please people may also be at play, but these air signs are great communicators and will always have your back.

Taureans are known for their steadfastness, resilience, and loyalty. They think things through carefully and value security. Rodriguez deems them as the epitome of reliability.

"Their energy is 'ride or die' and if they know something is important to you, they aren't going to let you down," says DeGolia.

In addition to their unwavering loyalty, these earth signs don't believe in giving up thanks to their stubborn side. "Whether it's a promise made to a friend or a task at work, a Taurus will never back down until they've fulfilled their commitment," adds Rodriguez.
