Pet zodiac signs and traits might give you some insights into your pet’s behaviors — good or bad. You also might find out who is really in charge. Whatever animal you live with, either a snake, a dog, a cat, a horse, or a bird, knowledge of their astrology sign might at least give you a hint of what to expect down the road. Horoscopes are a great way to see how your relationship with your pet has evolved.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
If anyone is going to be the boss, it is the Aries pet. They are true born leaders and will certainly let you know it. They are not ones to disagree with. Stubborn, yet also out to win, they thrive on competition and tend to be fearless.
Being a headstrong Aries, they may be a bit difficult to train initially. However, they do want to please and will eventually get the picture. They are loyal and do their best to keep their families out of harm’s way. They can also be extremely sensitive.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
“Determined” is putting it mildly. Taurus pets exude the sign of the stubborn bull and they can eat like one too! Their hearts belong to their families. Like many of their owners, they find themselves content to lie on the most comfortable piece of furniture and enjoy a good TV show or soothing music. They enjoy physical contact more so than conversation.
Taurus pets are very protective of their owners. Although they may appear to be a bit aloof, they are always keeping an eye and an ear out for your safety and property. It may seem that they have a lower level of energy than some of the other signs, so it is up to you to make sure they get their exercise. They do have a tendency to become overweight.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Be careful. Our Gemini pets are quite curious, which may get them into some trouble. Their energy is boundless, which makes sitting still a slight problem. A good idea is to get your Gemini pet some playmates.
They seem always ready to give you a full report about everything going on around them. They would make great newsroom anchors! Entertaining their masters and winning the attention of outsiders is a number one priority for Gemini pets. All in all, they will go to great lengths to get your attention, which is usually done with much charm and charisma.
CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
Sensitivity is a glaring trait of Cancer pets. Even the mildest scolding causes them to retreat and cower until you have kissed and made up. They will not accept being treated as anything less than part of the family. They are vigilant protectors of the household and its members. Their loyalty is insurmountable. But just as important are their personal belongings. They are extremely clever at hiding their toys and tend to favor some toys more than others. The “special” toys always seem to wind up together in the same spot.
Also, be aware that they subscribe to “me and my shadow.” Very seldom will you find them not where you are. Another great pastime for our beloved Cancer pets is eating. They love their treats and everything that can be eaten in-between. So exercise is important, and usually they are quite willing to be first out the door to take a walk through the park. Most likely to meet up with any and all children, whom they dearly love. Keep in mind, however, that a car ride is not number one on their agendas.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
This willful and domineering king of the jungle handles the household as his kingdom. How dare anyone challenge the authority of the king! The Leo pets exude royalty, but will defend their family to the end. Mind you, they are great with other animals and guests, especially children, as long as they feel they are still top dog and being obeyed. Making the king comfortable is important.
Leos do not care for isolation or dark spaces. This can cause melancholy. So, it is important to let the sun shine in or leave a light on to keep their spirits up. Lots of play and attention is the best way to keep our king happy.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
If you are thinking of getting a Virgo pet, you’d better tidy up. These loving companions like to have everything orderly and clean. In fact, they are very fond of a nice bath. Even so, they enjoy romping through the grass and digging an occasional hole in the dirt.
They love to do nothing more than please their families. You could not have a better friend. They are very trainable and catch on to tricks easily. Being extreme creatures of habit and falling into set routines quickly, they can be a bit fussy about what time meals are served. So don’t deviate from their schedules. Virgo pets have a tendency toward tummy aches and also keep an eye out for allergies or skin problems.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libra pets are extremely good looking and they know it. They are also quite flirtatious and use their wiles to get what they want. Just as the scales that Libra holds tip, so do the moods of our Libra pet. They might appear lazy, however; they are merely trying to figure out what to do next. Most likely, the decision-making will be left to you. But if you become sluggish, they can get impatient.
Libra pets like to tag along. They have a need to stay close. They like to mingle with other people and their pets. At times though, they may poke their nose up at anything or everyone. They can also be very vocal. All in all, they are loving and loyal and can share their affections freely with many.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
At times, “stubborn” is the Scorpio pet’s middle name. A bit of advice, if you insist they do something —watch out — they won’t be pushed into anything. They have excellent memories and are great observers of their surroundings. They are independent by nature and content to wander outside or through the house on their own. They do not need to be attached at the hip to their family members. Because of that, they are good snoops and sneaks with a large amount of curiosity.
Scorpio pets love to please, entertain and show their undying loyalty. Their quiet nature makes them very laid-back companions. You might even find them a bit psychic, as they tend to be able to read your mind and know what you are about to do next.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
One of the more energetic signs is the Sagittarius pet. It is suggested that you be in top physical shape to keep up. Due to their exuberance and love for fun, it can get exhausting. While in their rambunctious state, particularly during the puppy years, they can disrupt the household somewhat. They love to investigate anything and everything and seem very courageous. However, their bark is much worse than their bite. They are the first ones to run away from a perceived danger.
These adventuresome Sagittarian pets are very loving and affectionate to their family members, although they do so on their own terms. Don’t expect a cuddle fest when you are looking for one. The Sagittarius pet is not for the homebody. They love to adventure out into the neighborhood and befriend all — you may be surprised at some of the tricks they pick up on their travels.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
The very intelligent and handsome Capricorn pets have a determination that is more pronounced than in any other sign. More than likely, Capricorns will be diggers whenever the opportunity arises. Being an Earth sign, this brings them closer to the ground. They are very trainable and learn fast. Make sure that you give them a job to do so they will stay happy. Along with determination comes stubbornness. Don’t change these pets’ routines — they will become depressed or confused.
Even though they don’t care to be left alone, they are not that sociable, especially with other animals and people they don’t know. However, they are in tune with the family dynamics and will definitely let you know when something is not right in the house. Watch for teeth and skin problems, as they are prone to them.
AQUARIUS (January 20- February 18)
The Aquarius pets dance to the beat of a different drummer. They aren’t stuck following the same routine; in fact, they like to mix it up! They are intelligent, but they might not always listen to you — they can be willful, stubborn and non-conformists. They can also be a bit temperamental when it comes to training.
The Aquarius pet has to be the life of the party and they get along with everyone. You might find they have a tendency to pick up some stray friends. They are high-energy pets. They love adventure and travel, but they also love their homes and family members. They are gentle and playful with children. Not being finicky about what they eat may result in some undesirable tummy problems.
PISCES (February 19- March 20)
There is no pet more loyal and sensitive to his owner’s feelings than the Pisces pet. Just as the sign’s symbol is that of the fish, these pets love the water. They become relaxed by it, so much so that when they are away from the water, it can be anxiety provoking. Pisces pets are keenly aware of their owner’s moods and can sense any swings in them. Like a true Pisces, their moods go in and out like the tides. They are great judges of character and are very empathetic. Once they have befriended someone, they become best friends for life. If you have any sensitivity to psychic abilities, don’t be surprised if you get a sense that your pet is psychic!
Pisces pets are also susceptible to accidents due to their curious natures, so be vigilant of where and what your Pisces pet is up to. If they can’t be near the water, they prefer being inside. Snuggling with their family is a favorite pastime; however they also enjoy having a private space to call their own. Decorate their spot with some soft rugs, towels or a fluffy cushion, because if you don’t they will!
