SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)

Once the New Moon on December 14 shines, you kiss goodbye those pet peeves once and for all. Generic dog treats? The wrong dog toy? The catch is, you've got to bury these annoyances (literally speaking) to show your humans that you mean dog business. Grr-eat days: 13, 14

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)

Doggone it, goat dogs, this is the month to let bygones be bygones. Yes you CAN move forward and share that genuine canine love with other well-meaning two and four-legged friends. You have plenty of dog kisses and fun-loving energy stored up. Grr-eat days: 15, 16

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)

Once midmonth hits, thanks to the teamwork of the New Moon on December 14 and Full Moon on the 30th, you'll savor spending down time with your humans. Your doggie dreams will come true. Think car rides and a good tummy rub (or two). Good human-canine times will blast those doggie doldrums and hectic holidays. Grr-eat days: 18, 19

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)

This is the month to take it easy despite that you feel like an energized pup. Thanks to mighty Mars on December 8 you'll want to be Wonder Dog. But note, p-a-c-e yourself – refrain from having the "crazies" and running in circles in the house or the backyard, because you have to keep you and your humans sane for the holiday season. Grr-eat days: 20, 21

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)

Think twice before you mouth off (bark, bite or chew) during the Full Moon on December 14. If you put on little doggie airs you may have big regrets (regarding your beloved humans) about your bad dog behavior by the end of the month. P.S. Save the impulsive Ram thing for next year. Grr-eat days: 22, 23

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)

Fact: It's going to be a shaky month. Fact: You may be the scapegoat for some household mishap – but it's not your fault, Pooch. After the New Moon on December 14 just play it cool; that means no whining or retreating to your closet. By New Year's Eve you'll get all the praise and pats that you – the stable dog – deserve. Grr-eat days: 25, 26

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)

Unpredictable Gemini dogs may find this holiday season will be full of ups and downs. While you love novelty more than most dogs, expect unwelcome periods of chaos midmonth due to the solar eclipse. To chill out your mind/body: enjoy a friendly tussle with your dog chum or be gentle and play that "chase the cat" game. Grr-eat days: 1, 28

CANCER (June 22 – July 23)

Settle down, sensitive Moon dogs. It'll be okay. During the New Moon on December 14, it's best if you take to cocooning (retreat to your safe haven). Chances are, your nurturing human or pet pal will pet your spirit and soul. Think invigorating outdoor romps or hanging your head out the car window. Either way, it's a win-win situation. Grr-eat days: 2, 3

LEO (July 24 – August 23)

Due to the solar eclipse on December 14 you must be on your best dog behavior. Obey those stupid human words: "Sit" and "Stay" and you'll get through this beastly season. Better yet, if you play by the rules in the "Good Dog" game you'll sit smart in the Leo spotlight once again. Grr-eat days: 4, 5

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)

Calling all working Virgo dogs – it's your month to be a good Samaritan for your humans. Be on your paws for playing the role of "therapy dog." Plus, being seen (not heard) during holiday madness will work in your favor. Your reward: a well-earned dog-human reunion by month's end: Breakfast in bed with you know who. Grr-eat days: 6, 7

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)

Let's party social Libran canines. December is a month chockfull of visitors. The secret to keeping your cool and calm composure, Lib, is to be on guard, especially midmonth. If the human celebrations get too loud just put your head in the most sensitive human's lap and you'll get some TLC. If not, turn to your dog or cat companion and get a soothing fur fix. Grr-eat days: 8, 9

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)

Expect surprise visits this month Scorpion canines. That's right, by the first day of Winter on December 21, past pet pals will warm your nose and heart. More good holiday cheer: Plenty of human attention (walks and talks) is yours for the taking till the year's end. Translation: You're going to be in good paws to bring in the New Year. Grr-eat days: 30, 31
