Uplifting compliments for Aries

You don’t like being in the highlight and prefer to avoid high-sounding words. When you get compliments, you most often ignore them by simply saying “Thank you, it was nothing.” It’s probably not the most rewarding practice but definitely the most unpretentious one.

Uplifting compliments for Cancer

People born under the sign of Cancer are especially loyal and affectionate, and sometimes you may feel they are getting a bit over the top. But don't let irritation harm their feelings. Cancer is motivated only by the happiness of the ones they care about, and it's a nice idea to repay their selflessness with your own words and deeds.

Uplifting compliments for Leo

On the surface a Leo may appear extremely self-absorbed, but this totally changes when trust enters their life. Leos are famous for being dedicated friends, and they're ready to perform seemingly impossible feats for the people they care about. Reciprocity is a perfectly reasonable price to pay for what a Leo can give you.

Uplifting compliments for Virgo

Virgo values reason in all kinds of relationships as much as in other spheres, and this may be quite misleading for the people who want to be their friends. Virgos aren't cold or calculating, they're just doing their best to better understand the ones they care about. Virgo's judgment is their strongest trait, so try to compliment this aspect more often.

Strangely enough, it’s hard for you to simply accept a compliment by saying “Thank you.”  Instead, you start praising the addresser in return telling the person how much you love and appreciate them. Be careful – sometimes people simply want to be nice!

Uplifting compliments for Scorpio

Jealousy isn't a quality you'd want anyone to possess, but sometimes Scorpios give in to feeling it towards people they are connected with. Don't worry, though, since Scorpio compensates this with exceptional passion and devotion. Brush off Scorpio's worries and doubts with your own dedication to them.

It’s hard for you to believe another person’s words, especially if they seem too ingratiating. You take it for granted that he or she doesn’t mean what is said and it can make you very skeptical. You’re to learn to trust others and not to look for any undertone.
