Pets the non-human friends that keep on giving. Their attention, affection, and love are unconditional. If you are looking for your perfect pet, let astrology be your guide. The following are the best pets for your zodiac sign.
When it comes to pets, the fiery independent Aries needs an animal companion that can keep up. Our suggestion is man’s best friend, a dog. But, not just any dog. Aries would do well to choose a dog that is relatively independent. Certain breeds, such as Dalmatians, can give the Aries a run for its money. Dalmatians are strong-willed, independent, and a bit bossy and feisty. They are the perfect type of dog for this independent bold sign. They are also the canine most associated with firemen…an occupation that rules the fire sign of Aries.
Get ready to roar because there’s no better pet for Leo and its cat counterpart. Leo’s would do best with a cat that has the same type of feisty, fiery energy that it possesses. Choose a cat that has a regal demeanor which will suit any Leo just fine. Make sure the Leo cat has its very own special, plump bed for luxurious lounging.
In a perfect world, every Sagittarius would be able to have a horse as its personal pet. Horses are one of the few animals that possess the free-spirited, wild energy reminiscent of Sagittarius. However, if a horse is just not feasible as a pet, there’s always the Siberian Husky. These types of dogs possess independent energy, and Sagittarius will enjoy taking their huskies on their wonderful adventures.
True to the energy of Gemini, there’s no better pet for this loquacious, talkative sign than a parrot. Parrots always have something to say, and they demand attention with their witty ways. Plus, being the owner of a parrot is always a great conversation piece. Parrots are also able to navigate the air element which is just perfect for the air sign Gemini.
Keeping with the bird trend for air signs, Libra would do well with a pair of doves. Being the relationship-oriented sign that it is, two doves nestling in their love-cage would suit Libra quite well. Also, the sweet chirping of these birds is pleasant to the ears, and Libra loves all things lovely including its pets.
When it comes to Aquarius, the best pets are the ones that are unique. For the sign that marches to the beat of its own drum, consider exotic pets such as a sugar glider or a flying squirrel. Both of these pets are one of a kind, and they love being airborne…just like Aquarius.
Taurus is known for enjoying the simpler pleasures of life, so what would be better than a fat, lazy cat as a pet? The best cat for Taurus is the one that thoroughly enjoys sleeping, eating, and lounging in that special sunlit spot all day long. Taurus will enjoy watching its feline friend basking in the goodness of the simple, content cat life.
Virgo, being the hard worker that it is, will thoroughly enjoy the continuous movement of a pet hamster. Hamsters are cute, small pets that have a lot of energy, and they do well on their own…similar to their Virgo human counterparts. Just make sure they have plenty of space, tons of toys for engagement, a nice clean environment, and a hamster wheel to keep them busy. There’s nothing more than Virgo likes than being productive and busy, so this sign will enjoy watching its hamster make use of its energy on the hamster wheel.
The guinea pig is a compatible pet for the hardworking, routine-oriented sign Capricorn. Guinea pigs, just like their Saturn-ruled owners, have very particular needs. They require a specific diet, their own personal space, a steady routine, and lots of love. After a long day at work, Capricorn will enjoy showing its guinea pig some attention.
Cancer has a lot of love and nurturing to give, so why not opt for a fluffy bunny rabbit as a pet. Bunny rabbits are very affectionate and enjoy companionship, so they would make a perfect pet for the homebody, family-oriented Cancer. Rabbits enjoy a safe environment which Cancer is more than willing to provide for its adored pet that is one of the family.
It should come as no surprise that Scorpio is one of the few signs that would enjoy a reptile as a pet. While most people would cringe at the thought of having a snake as a pet, not Scorpio. In fact, lizards are one of the several animal archetypes of Scorpio energy. Plus, the Scorpio will enjoy watching its reptilian snake pals shed their skin…just like Scorpio does for its own personal transformations.
Last, but not least, there is the all-encompassing Pisces, and its perfect pet…fish. From goldfish and guppies to the more exotic discus and the flowerhorn cichlid, Pisces will feel right at home tending to their aquatic friends. Make sure the aquarium is reminiscent of the ocean floor so that the fish friends can enjoy their watery paradise.
