Why does Nancy’s lab love Smith’s over-excited pug but not Amanda’s moody maltese? Why does he love going on a trip to the waterpark but absolutely hates going to the markets? Why doesn’t his wishes and fancies match those of his same-breed brothers-in-paw?
Um, is it possible that our dogs are connected to the Astroworld?
Can Dogs Have Zodiac Signs? You Bet They Can
Yes – dogs (as well as cats, alpaca, monkeys, pandas, and well… all animals) have a place in the astrological universe as much as humans do. The only reason dogstrology does not populate traditional media outlets and the internet is that pets can not read. Yes, they can not read. So if your dog is intently looking at the magazine you are reading, they are probably just trying to spot a chihuahua they fell in love with within the neighborhood.
If you don’t want to take the word of mere dog lovers who are trying to fight for the rights of pups, then have it in the words of Christopher Renstrom – the creator of RulingPlanets.com. He says, and we quote, that animals belong to the Sixth House of natal charts and that people routinely used astrology in history to predict the well-being of livestock.
Discovery time! Know Everything About Your Pooch’s Astrology Zodiac Sign
About time all our fellow canine buffs discovered what determines their pets’ personalities: dog astrology. All in all, it’s twelve months, twelve zodiac sign personalities, and twelve different manifestations of paw-someness.
the only dogs that are bull-headed
The first of dogs’ zodiac signs, Aries dogs, are the headmen of the dog world. No matter what breed your dog is, if they are an Aries, they are peppy, loud, and chirpy. Their mischievous sense of humor can put Kevin Hart (we love you, Kevin) to shame. A twenty-four-seven ball of amusement keeps their human mommy and daddy on their toes.
The big pluses: The popularity of Aries dogs is associated with their confidence and a knack for getting things done their way. They love hydrant sniffin’ their mommy and daddy—little toe beans always find a way to please you. P.S this hydrant sniffin’ is paired with sloppy salivary licks if you aren’t a couch potato.
The minor minuses: Stubborn and impatient but adorably so. If they want your attention, be there at their service immediately. Want them to go by your rulebook? Nuh-uh, not happening, human. Ariean doggos do not like couch potatoes—so you’ll have to start moving around if you are one.
Likes: Breezy runs, hiking, tippy tapping on the grass.

shy but not weak.
Our lil Taurean friends do not like socializing as much – curling up and chillin’ in their tiny dog houses is their comfortable getaway. They’d rather have you treat them with chimken nuggers at home on their birthday than go out on a big birthday cruise outside. They generally don’t like noisy spaces, especially hating explosions, but they love the calms of nature. They are tender-hearted and loving and get along well with parents who understand their desire for security.
The big pluses: Kind-hearted and even-tempered. Period. Taurus dogs bond utterly well with children due to their calm temperament. They guard their loved ones to their best – upsetting those they are close to can upset them. The best part? They respond well to classical conditioning.
The minor minuses: It’s hard for these fur babies to quit lazing around. On top of that, you can rarely make them move on insistence – oh these lazybones!
Likes: Hugs, snacks, treats, and chic outfits!

uninhibited and mouthy
From cowering in a corner to excited bouncing in under twenty minutes is what Geminian dogs do the best (and you thought only humans could have mood swings?). They tend to talk out their emotions with every woof and yap – no communication problem here. In addition, Geminis are relentlessly curious and intellectual powerhouses: try unlocking a door before them and see them unlocking it the next time the doorbell rings. With their love for exploring the roads, they would make great Doras.
The big pluses: Geminis are little furballs of explosions – firecrackers and sparklers. Their inquisitive nature makes them great learners. They are thoughtful, kind, and witty, so they can quickly fill the role of a human if you are short of one.
The minor minuses: Their threshold for boredom is a bare minimum – either keep them entertained all the time or get them a huge toy collection. They can often be nosy, especially if there’s food involved.
Likes: Gabbing endlessly, twirling to good music, and traveling.
Date: May 21 to June 20
Symbol: The Twins
Most Compatible human Zodiac Sign: Aries, Aquarius, and Libra
Least Compatible human Zodiac Signs: Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces
Color palette: Any shade of Blue
Cancer dogs have a guarded yet kind temperament, and they’re keenly aware of people’s needs, thanks to their outstanding social skills. They are the nurturers — the guardian spirit, the Fairy Godmothers. They are tremendously patient around children. Once hurt, crab dogs go into hiding until they are coaxed out.
The big pluses: These Astro babies are attuned to human needs, emotions, and feelings, so don’t be surprised if your dog visits your neighborhood door-to-door to find out if someone has baked your favorite bonbons when upset. Of course, if you scold them for it, the cherry on top, they’d rarely hold a grudge. They are perfect care dogs for children and the elderly.
The minor minuses: Cancer dogs begin missing you immensely the moment you leave them alone, so make sure they have a toy to cuddle with while you’re not around.
Likes: Food, food, and food. (And did we mention Food?)

Wherever they go, pupparazis follow! Like their human counterparts, Leo dogs are the life of any party. If you like glamming up your pets, Leo is the dog for you. They enjoy being pampered and appreciated. Your Leo dog regards compliments highly and will go to great lengths to score them. With drumroll beating in the background, they walk like they own the floor. They thrive on socializing with humans and dogs alike; the only condition is that they need to be the center of attention.
The big pluses: Your dog does not have to be a Cane Corso to protect you – he simply has to be a Leo. Leos adore their hooman companions and will go to extraordinary lengths to stand guard over them. They are the dog heroes who valiantly save other canine friends, children, and even strangers.
The minor minuses: They might sometimes become engrossed in themselves – so much so that they’d forget there are other puppers in the line for baby carrots. They become slightly abrasive when other dogs challenge their authority (the stage is theirs, remember?)
Likes: parties, glamor, paparazzi, compliments, and entertainment.

the perfectionists, the fusspots
Imagine an elderly wise dog sitting back with their monocle, weighing every decision on a two-plate weighing scale. Yes, that’s your Virgo right there. Virgo dogs are the most analytical decision-makers who strive for perfection in everything they do. They are incredibly motivated and hardworking kiddos with noble goals, high integrity, and a strong desire to help others. They are also cleanliness freaks who like their tiny toe-beans cleaned and polished.
The big pluses: They are clever, energetic, and well-behaved. They take pride in their appearance, clean themselves regularly, and are hardly irritable. They would never wreak havoc in the homes to elicit a response from you – so don’t worry about chipped furniture or broken toys. Their inherent wisdom tells them to communicate instead of throwing tantrums.
The minor minuses: As with every perfectionist, Virgo dogs nitpick over tiny details. They have sky-high expectations of everyone and are frequently disappointed. Hello Virgos, not everyone is as perfect as you are.
Likes: Duties, organizing groceries, learning, and cleanliness.

the blue hour in the city of lights
Imagine a pair of swans landing in a lake. Their wings are poofing out as their feet scrap the water … they dip down and down, and away they go. This is precisely the image that comes to our mind after interacting with Libra dogs. Libran dogs are exceptionally attractive and exude a natural elegance and charisma. They are incredibly compassionate souls who believe in bringing peace back to the land. They take pleasure in mental exercises and training. They also enjoy luxuries such as spa days and bubble baths. Librans love to share their possessions selflessly.
The big pluses: Libra-born dogs are cooperative and easy-going. They will quickly spring their routine to match yours or relocate to a new place without showing a case of tantrums. In addition, this sign appreciates relationships and seeks to have companions onboard on their adventures – socializing is not a problem for them as long as they have something to show off.
The minor minuses: Our libra dogs tend to avoid fights actively – yes, they are chickens, not dogs, when it comes to facing conflicts. They are people pleasers (we aren’t saying it’s a bad thing), so they fail to bark out for themselves in situations that require them to do so.
Likes: Gossiping with littermates, lap of luxury, bed of roses.

a blazing fireplace
Scorpio dogs are known for their discretion and mysterious aura. They would either be yours, loyally, truthfully, sincerely, wholly, or won’t get within 10 feet of you. Whether it’s protecting you in a house invasion or getting between you and a lethal scorpion, they’ll put their life at stake for you. They are famed for being zodiac mystics and therapists. They love investigating complex subjects – their curiosity is immeasurable. They love flirting with danger. Moreover, if you feel a Scorpio dog’s intense gaze fixed on you, they are probably trying to read your mind.
The big pluses: Scorpio dogs are extremely hard working with a phenomenal ability to push everyone around them to their level of dedication and speed. Imagine what success they can be as service dogs. In addition, they are proactive – you don’t expect tragedies to occur before they can respond to them; instead, they will prevent them.
The minor minuses: These dogs thrive on the liberty of action in their dealings. Getting tied down to domination makes them a wee bit cranky. Sameness sometimes bore them. Routinely challenges excite them. They are not fond of ticking clocks and nagging parents.
Likes: Puzzles, naps, jokes, and pick-up lines.

Sagittarius dogs are like a gush of fresh, fragrant springy wind that cheers up every sulky face that it touches. They are hyper-charged bundles of social energy in complete awe of life. Being on the road is their definition of heaven. They are aesthetes with an appreciation for their beauty and beautiful toys.
The big pluses: These sweet babies are always keen to learn new ruses to impress their humans, so stay assured you won’t have a moment of boredom around them. Loud noises and large crowds? Not a problem for them. They also have a way of motivating everyone around them to live their best possible life. (Did I mention they are pretty amusing?)
The minor minuses: They wouldn’t think twice before trotting away to something more enjoyable than you—but don’t worry, they always come back to their hoomans. They don’t like responsibilities; they are here to live their life to the fullest.
Likes: Road trips, adventures, gossip sess, and spontaneity

I wasn’t born yesterday.
Even if they were born yesterday, their wisdom tells you they weren’t born yesterday. They can do well with little to no training. Capricorn dogs have a calm attitude that sometimes borders on coldness (but we promise they are not cold). They thrive on stability and have a strong desire for order. Their stern exterior is tenderized by their warm heart.
The big pluses: They feel a strong sense of fulfillment in a good performance, whether it’s a little search-and-rescue operation, finding your lost sock, or looking over their baby humans. You can delegate work to them and have a careless, quick nap.
The minor minuses: They like snuggling into their typical routines, so it is sometimes hard to make them like new things. They are diligent performers who thrive on feedback. If you fail to give them that, they might bundle up in a corner for a little while.
Likes: Binge-watching titanic while munching on caramel popcorn, bringing in the mail, overworking.

the fiery oddballs
Aquarius dogs are quirky. Period. They would go round and round trying to catch that floppy-floppy-dangly dingus attached to their back and call it discovery in their dog universe. They are the brainiacs, the original thinkers, the helpers with the spirit of Mother Teresa. They would think of creative ways to help their pet parents (and others) and go out of their way when no one else is ready to. They are not afraid to bark their minds out when they sense injustice in their territory. They have a powerful presence, so don’t be surprised when your dog grabs a few eyeballs as you walk down a park.
The big pluses: They are humanitarians at heart who’d selflessly jump into a burning apartment to drag out humans and pets. You’d never fall short on quick fixes to minor domestic problems with their intellect.
The minor minuses: Since their outlook on life is so unconventional, they disengage from people and pets who do not share the same views. They are also quick to sign off from situations they do not like.
Likes: listening intently to intellectually stimulating discussions, helping others, making their own rules.
Date: January 20 to February 18
Most Compatible human Zodiac Sign: Gemini, Libra, and Sagittarius

the crystal gazers
Dogs are incredibly intuitive but well, with Pisces dogs, this ability multiplies tenfolds. These dogs can instantly feel everything from your sickness to your stress to your anxiety to pregnancy and mood. In addition, they are the most loving dogs of all zodiac signs – they have to be around their human parents all the time. They are also the calmest amongst all the dog zodiac signs.
The big pluses: They won’t bark or whine incessantly if you wake them up to take them for a walk. They make a darling company as long as you accompany them. They are artistic, intelligent, intuitive, and selfless.
The minor minuses: They have a very soft, gentle heart – they would hide behind the couch to avoid quarrels.
Likes: Day-dreaming, cuddling their humans, and chasing butterflies.
