# 10 Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

# 9 Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Although Aries fall under the Fire sign and are known for their hotheadedness and passion, they make it on the list of the kindest Zodiac signs. Aries are known for being leaders who are fearless in going after what they want.
Their competitive nature can sometimes be intimidating, making them a surprise feature on this countdown. However, like all the other signs on this list, Aries-born people try their best to be kind and generous.

# 8 (July 23 – August 22)
While this might come as a surprise for some, Leos can be very kind. If you have a Leo in your life, chances are they live up to their reputation of being social creatures who love being in the limelight.
In their pursuit of sharing their joys and victories with others, Leos crave leading with kindness. However, although they are not the kindest, they understand the importance of having some semblance of kindness. So, if you can look past their king-of-the-jungle exterior, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
# 7 (June 21 – July 22)
If you are of two minds about whether the Cancer in your life is kind or unkind, you are not alone. Cancers are moody water signs, and you often never know what you'll get with them. Although they are not inherently unkind by nature, Cancer's hot and coldness lands them a lower spot on the list.
Ironically, Cancers feel very deep, especially other people's pain. So, although they have a deep capacity for emotion, the turbulent rollercoaster ride that is their emotions sees them nab the number seven spot on the kindest zodiac signs list.

# 6 (May 21 – June 20)
Like Cancers, Geminis' kindness can tip either side of the scale. However, while it is Cancer's emotions that can lead them to be unkind, Geminis are able to pick and choose when they are the kindest person you will ever meet or the meanest person you will ever meet.
People in the close-knit circle of a Gemini will always sing their praises when it comes to their kindness and generosity. However, Geminis are also one of the meanest zodiac signs.
Geminis decide how to react depending on what they are feeling. If you catch them on a good day, they will give you a reason to think they should be higher on the list of the kindest zodiac signs. However, if you catch them on a bad day, they will remind you why they take the number six spot.

Sagittarius is one of the zodiac signs with the kindest hearts. However, you have to earn seeing that side of them. At first glance, Sagittarius can be distant and cold towards those who don't know them. However, this is only a facade.
Once you gain Sagittarius' trust, you will also gain a friend for life. An elusive air sign, Sagittarius simply avoids negative traits, choosing to be a kind and positive individual. When Sagittarius sees you as positive and kind, they will match that energy.

# 3 Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus takes the number three spot for the kindest zodiac signs. These warm, patient, and calm individuals are the kind of people that always greets strangers with a smile, holds the door open for you, and lets you go in first.
Although Taurus is commonly known for being stubborn, it is actually their stubbornness that makes them so kind. Their legendary stubbornness results from their patient and tempered mood, always remaining even-keel regardless of everyone around them. As a result, they insist on being kind.
# 2 Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
If "selfless" was a person, it would be a Pisces. Pisces are one of the most kind-hearted signs, always ready to help. However, this eagerness can sometimes be mistranslated as nosiness, and their overly concerned nature and genuinity can sometimes be misinterpreted as pretentiousness.

While Leos are often considered the best leaders, Libras should not be overlooked for their role, as it is a fundamental part of their nature to put out fires and go the extra mile to be nice to people around them.
