Pet Astrology 101
As you read the following pet zodiac signs, pay close attention to the attributes associated with each. But use some of your own judgment. For instance, Scorpios tend to be focused on themselves and get what they want.
That definition also pretty much sums up all cats. It does not mean all cats are therefore Scorpios. When you evaluate your animal, evaluate it against others of its own species and breed.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
The Ram is the sign of Aries. It’s ruled by the planet Mars which is known as “the bright and burning one.” It’s ruled by both passion and drive.
Aries is a fire sign which gives Aries pets confidence and strength. Taking “no” for an answer is not in their nature. So, when your pet doesn’t obey, don’t take it personally.
Fortunately, Aries pets are also extremely smart and playful. They strive to be the center of your world and, sometimes, your possessions. They’re inquisitive and self-assured which can sometimes lead to getting into accidents.
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
The Bull is the sign of Taurus. It’s ruled by the planet Venus which is known for beauty, love, and gentleness. Taurus is also an earth sign and therefore full of willpower.
Your Taurus Pet wants to have its cake and eat it too. When it’s determined to do something, it’s going to do it.
On the flip side, Taurus pets are inherently shy. They need to feel love and safely more than other pets. They love to feel loved, but only when they’re in the mood.
Balance and a peaceful environment are the keys. Loud noises and lots of people stress them out more than other pets.

Gemini pets would rather guard than be subservient. They tend to connect with many people rather than a single master.
They’re also quick learners, and they love to exercise. So get them moving often. Fortunately, they’re also smart, so they learn quickly and love to play.
Unfortunately, they can also be nervous eaters, and they suffer anxiety if left alone.

Without it, they’ll take advantage of everyone and everything.

They move from zero to sixty in the blink of an eye. They can be difficult because their mood and interests change from moment to moment. Unfortunately, that often means they have no intention of doing what you’d like them to do.
Fortunately, they do well around other pets. Any other pets. If you want to match up a mouse with your dog, for instance, an Aquarius dog would be your best bet.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
The Fish is the sign of Pisces. It’s ruled by the planet Jupiter. Pets under this sign are particularly sensitive to what’s going on around them.
They tend to know how their humans are feeling, and comfort them in times of need. They also deal with stress well, so they make good companions in public.
