What Sign Is Your Pet?
With all these lockdowns and restrictions in place, many of us have been spending a lot more time than usual at home with our pets (I think we can all agree that they’re the real winners of 2020!). Maybe you’ve even witnessed some adorable little ticks and quirks that you’ve never noticed before, like how they always go sit at the front window at exactly 11am, or that they spend the majority of the afternoon chasing sunbeams around the house to nap in.
Breed and upbringing contributes a lot to these little personality traits that we love, but there’s another factor at play as well. Just like their humans, pets have sun signs too and they manifest in very similar ways to ours! If you know your pet’s approximate date of birth, check their sun sign below and see if you recognize any of these traits or characteristics. Astrology isn't just for humans!
Aries (March 21 - April 20)
Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, which is all about passion and drive. Aries pets are confident and fearless, and they love to explore new environments. These are the cats who love being outdoors (or, if they’re indoor cats, sitting by a window watching birds like they’re the season finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race). Aries dogs are agile and quick, and they love to run, play fetch and toss a ball around with their favourite human. They have an independent streak, so don’t take it personally if they don’t come when you call them!
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
Ruled by gentle Venus, Taurus pets can be shy and they need to feel safe and cozy. These cuddlebugs love affection, but only when it’s on their terms...otherwise, they can be a bit standoffish. Taurus pets need a lot of stability in their environments, and dogs especially thrive on routine and predictability. Loud noises could stress them out and they have a stubborn streak but when a Taurus pet is in the mood for snuggles, you won’t find a better nap buddy!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Pets born under the sign of the Twins have a natural duality to them, and can be somewhat unpredictable in their reactions to things. Don’t be surprised if your Gemini kitty purrs when you pet them, only to turn around and scratch you for no reason at all! Dogs born under this Mercury-ruled sign tend to be social and get along well with humans and animals alike, but can also suffer from separation anxiety. They have a “guardian” streak when it comes to their favourite humans and are quick, intelligent learners.
Cancer (June 21 - July 20)
Cancer is under the rulership of the Moon, which governs emotions and intuition. Pets born under this sign are sensitive, loving and very in tune with the moods of their favourite humans. Don’t be surprised if your Cancer fur baby just seems to “get” you! They love to nurture their humans as well as other animals, but any changes to their environments or routine can make them moody and disengaged. These pets are extremely sensitive, so they may need a lot of reassurance, but their almost telepathic ability to read your mind and emotions makes them incredibly responsive and in tune with you.
Leo (July 21 - August 20)
Leo pets shine with the warmth and charm of the Sun, which is their natural ruler. These are noble and generous companions, and they love being outside to bask in the warmth of the light that governs them. Leo pets are incredibly loyal, but they can have a lazy streak! They love to be the centre of attention, and will never say no to any affection that you lavish on them. Brace yourself though...Leo dogs are natural performers, and can be prone to excessive barking!
Virgo (August 21 - September 20)
Like fellow earth sign Taurus, Virgo pets love routine and don’t take well to sudden changes. When comfortable, they’re among the calmest pets in the zodiac and are great companions for stressful situations as they just seem to ooze reassurance! Virgo dogs are the ones who will follow you from room to room, and cats may have a tendency to constantly bathe themselves, this Mercury-ruled sign is prone to excessive cleanliness.
Libra (September 21 - October 20)
Structure is a must with pets born under this Venus-ruled sign. Just like the Scales that represent them, there’s a tendency toward indecisiveness, and they need gentle discipline in order to feel secure. Libra is all about compromise, and dogs especially will thrive under the guidance and leadership of their beloved humans. Libra pets are loving and pleasant, but they may have short attention spans.
Scorpio (October 21 - November 20)
Being a fixed water sign, Scorpio pets can be strong-willed and have BIG emotions. If you have a pet born under this influential and powerful sign, chances are that your household revolves around them! Scorpio pets never forget a person, place or thing that may have wounded or scared them, so just like Taurus, they need plenty of reassurance. There’s a tendency with this sign to crave a lot of solitude, especially with cats, so don’t be surprised if you find your Scorpio kitty hiding under the bed!
Sagittarius (November 21 - December 20)
Optimistic and good-natured, pets born under this Jupiter-ruled sign love a challenge. These are the dogs who adore playing hide-and-seek, and Sagittarius cats are fearless adventurers who follow their instincts wherever they may lead. These are “people” pets, and they tend to be outgoing, happy-go-lucky and kind. Sagittarius dogs want to be with their favourite humans at all times, but it can quickly turn into separation anxiety if you’re not careful!
Capricorn (December 21 - January 20)
There’s an air of elegance and refinement that surrounds Capricorn pets, and they tend to have minds of their own. They love to get clean, but don’t you dare ruffle their feathers (or fur) in the process! Capricorn pets will avoid getting dirty, but tend to hate going to the groomer’s. They don’t sleep as much as pets born under other signs, and Capricorn kitties especially may have nocturnal tendencies. Dogs born under this Saturn-ruled sign need a lot of time to get used to other animals, so they may take a while to warm up to any new pets that you introduce into the house.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 20)
Being a fixed air sign, Aquarius pets are extremely intelligent. Dogs especially learn quickly, and have an ability to rapidly intuit the meaning behind new words and commands. Aquarius pets seem to have an on-off switch and are either fast asleep or in the throes of a serious case of the zoomies...there is no in-between! They tend to latch on to just one person and once they do, are extremely loving and loyal. Aquarius is the sign of social life and community, so they get along especially well with other animals.
Pisces (February 21 - March 20)
Pisces is the most sensitive and intuitive sign of the zodiac, and pets born under the sign of the Fish are simply magical! They’re sweethearts, and aren’t easily provoked to aggression. They thrive in peaceful, quiet environments and make good companions for those who are elderly, as they love to lavish affection and attention on their favourite people. Because of their passive nature, they can sometimes be bullied by other animals so if you have a Pisces pet, it’s a good idea to supervise them when they’re interacting with other animals!
