Animals and the Zodiac: Choosing Your Pet

Animals and the Zodiac: Choosing Your Pet

Have you ever wondered how the animal world is affected by sun signs? Animals themselves may not be directly affected, but our choice of pet might be correlated to our zodiac sign. Just as we attract certain romantic partners, we can also benefit from having an animal friend in our life for companionship.

Here are the pets you might be most attracted to based on your zodiac sign:

Aries: Aries signs are energetic and will get along with a pet that can keep up with your level of excitement and activity. Dogs are a great way to get outside, go for runs, or just have a partner to adventure with.

Taurus: Tauris signs need loyal companions that can adapt to their surroundings. You might have an environment where you can take your pet to work, so a loyal companion dog or even a bird could be a fun addition to your family.

Gemini: Geminis are smart and coherent, which means you need an animal that is intuitive and smart. Siamese cats are a good place to start, as they are friendly and entertaining!

Cancer: Cancer signs are perfect for smart and loyal dogs like Retrievers or Labradors. They are family- and people-oriented breeds, so they will blend in with your existing family structure and provide lots of love for everyone they meet.

Leo: Leos are attracted to light and airy beings. You want to be inspired by what is around you but also feel comfortable with your surroundings. Larger, pettable cats are up your alley, as are small to medium-sized dogs.

Virgo: Virgos require companions that don’t sap your energy or require a ton of care. Loyal and low-maintenance are your go-to qualities when looking for a pet. A rescue cat or dog could be this kind of personality, as can fish and reptiles.

Libra: Libras are attracted to beauty and aesthetics. Libras tend to go for pets that are going to blend in seamlessly with their existing life. Cats are good for Libras, as are smaller dogs.


Scorpio: Scorpios are intrigued by character and looks. You want an animal that catches peoples’ eyes by their size or their personality. An iconic cat

like a Maine Coon or a Siamese will do the trick, or something large like an Irish Wolfhound or a Great Dane if you’re into canines.

Sagittarius: Friendly is the name of the game for pets. You’ll find yourself attracted to dogs, but an equally friendly cat can be good as well. Any dog that makes you comfortable and happy, like you’ve found a new friend, will be the best addition to your life.

Capricorn: Capricorns do well with independent pets who can entertain themselves or each other. Cats are great companions for Capricorns, as are some bird species and reptiles.

Aquarius: Aquarius signs are interested in pets that are out of the ordinary. Reptiles, rodents, and other rarities will bring you joy and give you something to talk about.

Pisces: Pisces need pets who return love and affection. Pisces do well with all animals, but cats in particular might float your boat.
