Dog Astrology: How the Stars Influence Your Pup

Did you pick your pup or were you two destined in the stars?

We’re diving into the fascinating world of dog astrology to uncover a fun way to learn more about the unique quirks and traits of our furry friends. Much like their humans, dogs have star signs that many believe shape their personalities. Are you curious if your pup lives up to the characteristics of their sign? Match their birthdate (or adoption date!) to the zodiac signs below to learn more about the personalities and compatible humans associated with each one.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) – The Rebel

Smart, stubborn, and just a tad eccentric, Aquarius pups like to march to the beat of their own drum. These dogs need stimulation and hate feeling bored. If you can’t entertain them, they’ll find their own fun (for better or worse)! Expect these dogs to keep you on your toes and be ready for a pet that will take you on an adventure. Although they may be a little odd, these pups are fiercely loyal to their pack, both humans and other pets.

Compatible Human Sign: Gemini

Pisces (February 19 – March 20) – The Dreamer

The Zen pups of the canine world, Pisces dogs are gentle, intuitive souls. Highly sensitive, these pooches like an owner who respects their desire for quiet and calm. These dogs love being close to their humans and will find any excuse to follow them around or sneak in a cuddle. In addition, because they are so good at reading their humans, Pisces dogs are ideal candidates for support dogs.

Compatible Human Sign: Cancer

Aries (March 21 – April 19) – The Leader

Aries dogs are natural-born leaders. Courageous, determined, and independent, these dogs might make you question who is walking who. They’re the type of dogs who crave action and thrive on the excitement of a challenge. Interested in dog sports? This is the pup for you! While they may play hard, these dogs will love even harder. Aries pups have big hearts to match their big personalities, and many will find their love of life to be contagious.

Compatible Human Sign: Aquarius

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) – The Homebody

Since the bull is the symbol of the Taurus, it shouldn’t be any surprise that these pooches are stubborn. Taurus dogs can be considered a little old school: they like things the way they always have been and resist change. Once they make up their mind on something, it’s likely not going to get changed. Taurus pups will sneak onto furniture if you aren’t looking and will gladly spend the day lying in bed or on the couch. While these dogs can seem lazy, they also love to be in nature and have outdoor playtime.

Compatible Human Sign: Virgo

Gemini (May 21 – June 21) – The Talker

Gemini dogs have an opinion on everything. They’ll let you know… loudly. Gemini pups are associated with communication and speaking, so they’ll talk to you the only way they know how: barking! Silly and mischievous, they will use their natural curiosity to explore the world around them, no matter what hijinks occur along the way! Whatever happens, they will keep you entertained and give you a story to tell.

Compatible Human Sign: Libra

Cancer (June 22 – July 22) – The Buddy

Is your dog happy to just hang out? Cancer pups are most content with a tummy full of treats and a quiet place to nap. These dogs move at their own pace and would like to keep exercise to a minimum, preferring a quick potty trip outside to a long walk. Since they thrive in cozy surroundings, these dogs make deeply devoted companions to humans who provide them with a safe and warm home.

Compatible Human Sign: Scorpio

Leo (July 23 – August 22) – The Diva

Leo dogs think of themselves as the performers of the dog world. Naturally charming, they love being the center of attention and radiate warmth and energy. While these pups are friendly, they don’t want the competition of another furry brother or sister. Instead, Leo dogs seek a human who will treat them like the star they were born to be and make sure they are pampered to their heart’s content. With these pooches, plan on booking a spa day for two, as they like to look as good as they feel.

Compatible Human Sign: Sagittarius

Virgo (August 23 – September 22) – The Worker

High expectations give Virgo dogs a bad reputation. These dogs want things to be perfect and apply their sense of work ethic to themselves as well as their humans. They want to do a good job and will work with all of their heart. Think of Virgo pups as disciplined soldiers: they need order and routine to feel satisfied. Don’t expect to change this dog’s schedule, lest you fall victim to a stern look or a strongly worded bark. However, don’t assume these fuddy-duddies can’t have any fun. Virgo pups make excellent guardians and companions to children, humans, and dogs alike!

Compatible Human Sign: Capricorn

Libra (September 23 – October 23) – The Lover

Libra dogs think of themselves as tortured artists. They feel deeply and often seek to demonstrate their love to the world around them. These pups are known for sensing what their humans need and being more than happy to help them get it. Desiring harmony, Libra dogs avoid chaotic environments and find comfort in their humans and other animals. These pups will be your friend and confidante for their whole lives.

Compatible Human Sign: Leo

Scorpio (October 24 – November 21) – The Psychologist

Quiet and mysterious, Scorpio dogs bring a subtle intensity to their relationships with humans. They feel emotions deeply and will remember every good and bad thing they experience with their human. Scorpio pups are highly perceptive and seem to be able to read your every thought. Because of their intelligence, these natural detectives need homes that make them feel secure and recognize their sensitivity.

Compatible Human Sign: Pisces

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) – The Class Clown

Natural entertainers, Sagittarius dogs love to impress their humans and always succeed in making them laugh. They are eager to learn new tricks and like to keep their brains stimulated. They may feel confined if not given enough space, so be sure to provide them with room to explore. Once free, these dogs have never met a person or dog they didn’t like and will gravitate toward strangers to make new friends. Their colorful personalities make them ideal travel companions.

Compatible Human Sign: Aries

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) – The Old Soul

As the wisest of the dog zodiac signs, Capricorns are dependable and self-assured companions. These pups may seem lazy at first, since they love to sit back and observe the world around them. However, they’ll surprise you and throw that seriousness out the window for some puppy-like playtime. Quiet and confident, these dogs are guided by their experiences. When given a task, Capricorn dogs will perform dutifully, even if it means keeping other humans or pets in line.
