The Best Pet for Your Zodiac Sign

Your zodiac signs can tell a lot about you and what you are looking for in other people. They can also show which animals you are best to interact with. We are all born with a certain type of temperament, including all creatures great and small. And each zodiac member has its preferences and requirements for pets. The pleasure of spending time in the company with domestic animals depends on how well your temperaments coincide. Fortunately, astrologers give recommendations on which pet would be ideal for you. 

For some people, it is important to find a faithful friend in a new pet, while others are focused on choosing a quiet animal, which, on the one hand, eliminates the feeling of loneliness, and on the other hand, does not get underfoot. And for someone, the first and only selection criterion is the unusual nature of a creature to live under one roof with.

Someone loves only dogs, and someone is dedicated to cats. But how to choose the best pet for you, if you love all animals, and there is such a choice in a pet store that you don’t know where to look first. In this case, we suggest you turn to the help of the horoscope. After all, when buying an animal, one should take into account the compatibility predicted by nature.

It is important that the pet animal would suit your character and lifestyle – in this case, a long and strong friendship is ensured. This article will help you find your alter ego among multiple fauna species, depending on the sign of the zodiac. 

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

For decisive and energetic Aries, who also love everything big and significant, large breeds of dogs are among suitable options, including such "serious animals" as Dobermans and Rottweilers. However, if you do not plan to engage in official dog breeding and train your pet daily, then it is better to choose a companion dog.

You perfectly get along with the Newfoundland, Mountain dog, and Mastiff. In addition, the Irish Setter and the Golden Retriever will be a good furry friend to you. These dogs will be happy to keep you company on long walks and by the fireplace. But remember that they do not put up with pressure and greatly appreciate a good attitude. With such an animal, you will walk a lot in the fresh air, play active games, meet and communicate with other dog owners.

However, Aries, as a rule, make rather impulsive decisions. Therefore, you will understand which particular animal is yours at first glance. And this may not be a playful puppy at all, but a cat, a hamster, a cockatoo or even an iguana. Or maybe, there will be several of them at once – they will entertain each other and you at the same time.

Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Career achievements are in the center of attention for Taurus, but if they have a pet, this does not mean that they will not be able to take care of it. Taurus is always busy, and it is better to choose pets that do not need constant attention and can remain without human company for a long time. Therefore, aquarium fish and cats are suitable for this sign. 

In addition, these creatures will satisfy your aesthetic needs – you can watch them for hours, receiving not only positive emotions but also energy replenishment. The breed of cats is at your discretion, however, if you want to get a friend rather than a status addition to your image, then choose a kitten following your heart and do not neglect usual alley cats.

But no slippery reptiles, unless you like turtles – they are quiet and self-sufficient. Dogs that are too jumpy like the Dalmatians will make you nervous, but a collie or a golden retriever is that what you need. Or maybe, let it be a charming rabbit with silky fur?

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Gemini people do not like loneliness and silence. They love to talk, so a cockatoo or gray African parrot will be the right pet for them. These funny birds quickly memorize a huge number of words and not only repeat them but do this quite consciously.

You just need to remember that, as a rule, males have greater abilities to reproduce human speech while females are difficult to train. In addition, if you dream of a talking parrot, do not buy a couple of birds, as they will prefer to "chat" with each other rather than with you. 

Besides, you may like a smart dog like a German Shepherd, or one that can accompany you everywhere – a teacup breed like the Chihuahua. And thanks to the dual nature of Gemini, an active ferret or even a raccoon can give them a real pleasure. Too exotic? Then opt for a playful cat.

Cancers (June 22 – July 22)

Responsible Cancers will find joy in getting not very nimble animals that require care. Representatives of this sign will be happy to cater to a long-haired creature, whether it is a cat (Maine Coon, Persian, British) or a medium-sized to a dwarf dog.

Hamsters, guinea pigs, and even giant snails or turtles will be an excellent choice for them. Or why not get a little pet that snuggles and needs just a little love and attention? A cute hedgehog also fits. The main thing is that the pet should be healthy since Cancers are sensitive to any diseases of their little friends.

Cancers value a sense of security. Therefore, a good watchdog can become, without exaggeration, one of your family members. Such a dog will provide not only protection but also communication and devotion. The Golden Retriever or Labrador – these dogs are perfect because they also get along well with children.

Leo (23.07 – 22.08)

Narcissistic Leo loves everything expensive and unique. Nevertheless, this does not mean that only royal breeds are suitable for them. Representatives of this sign develop the warmest and most trusting relationship with those animals they choose following the heart and almost by accident.

Lions get along perfectly with dogs of fancy and medium-sized breeds, as well as with chinchillas. However, their harmonious relations with cats are highly doubtful – despite all their egocentricity, these people are sentimental, and they want to stroke and hug their pets. So, if you ever decide to have a cat, then choose phlegmatic Persians or friendly Sphinxes.

Whatever pet Leos choose, it will be perfect, just magnificent: well-trained and playful at the same time. After all, Lions remain childish in the soul until old age. Therefore, they appreciate the playfulness in others. 

Virgo (23.08 – 22.09)

For Virgos, it is very difficult to go to the length of having a pet, as this means unnecessary mess and unpleasant odors. They are sticklers for cleanliness, so they will be happy only with those animals, which leave little garbage, dirt and unpleasant smell. If picking among dogs, it is the Italian Greyhound or Chinese Crested; as for cats, it is the Sphinx. 

Also, representatives of this sign get along well with aquarium fish. You will never fail to keep your aquarium clean and well-maintained, so your goldfish will live a long and happy life next to you. However, it is unlikely that you will be able to cotton together with rodents and birds – their fussing annoys phlegmatic Virgos, while food debris and sawdust scattered around the floor infringe on the order they value so much.

Anxious Virgo should avoid too nervous and energetic pets like the Chihuahua or Pomeranian. A quiet animal that will behave with dignity will suit you best. With that, Virgo’s pet will always be perfectly groomed and well-trained since these people are versed not only in care but also in educating.

Libra (23.09 – 22.10)

Libra is friendly and energetic, and this allows them to have several pets at once. The only thing that is not recommended is to get large dogs. They need strict upbringing, and this is not the prerogative of Libra. They will not be able to show their pets who the boss is, and as a result, you will get an uncontrollable dog. People ruled by this constellation are artistic and love to have fun, and the animals that will be able to entertain them are the perfect match. Moreover, it is even better if there are two of them: a couple of parrots, a kitten and a puppy or squirrels.

Representatives of this sign prefer to take an active part in the life of their pets. They should not get those animals, which are unsuitable for building a heart-to-heart relationship. Thus, fish is unlikely to become your favorite.

Libra also appreciates harmony, so too capricious pets requiring constant attention and those that are difficult to tame down is not for them. Reptiles and teacup dogs leave them indifferent, but an elegant Afghan hound, a Persian or Siamese cat, a gentle Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a bird with bright plumage are that what you need.

Scorpio (23.10 – 22.11)

Scorpios are extravagant and shocking, and therefore, suitable animals for them can be found among those that are usually called exotic. It can be an iguana, a boa constrictor, a giant spider, an eel or even a crocodile. A bird like an owl will also be a great choice. All these creatures, apart from their originality, are also resistant to the heavy energy of Scorpios.

It is best to avoid cats, dogs, and other sensitive animals – they rarely take root in the house of these representatives of the zodiac circle. The exception can be made for pets black in their color. In this case, your pet will become not only a companion for you but also a talisman. A giant mastiff or a wolf-dog, a dangerous pit bull or a doberman might well be your fitting animal. 

Lizards are especially suitable for Scorpions since they are connected by natural endurance. Also, these people appreciate a long-term relationship, and lizards live 10-20 years.

Sagittarius (23.11 – 21.12)

The basic principles of Sagittarius are freedom, independence, and an active lifestyle. They can establish relationships with any animal, even if it is aggressive. A sociable and generous Sagittarius gets along better with dogs of medium and large breeds. They have a mystical connection, understand each other perfectly, and also enjoy the moments of training turning them into a fun game.

Sagittarius people are firm and decisive, which allows them to "negotiate" with the most rebellious dogs and unruly horses. But keeping a horse at home is somewhat problematic. Therefore, a dog is an ideal pet for Sagittarius. A friendly puppy like the Retriever, Shih Tzu, Chow-Chow, Husky, or Labrador will get along well with Sagittarius because their souls are in tune.

Besides, a funny and smart fancy rat will suit you as a pet. You can put it on your shoulder and shock others. However, the best friend for Sagittarius is a turtle, as it symbolizes wisdom, which is a vital goal for this sign.  

Capricorn (22.12 – 19.01)

Capricorn is the Earth sign. They are uncommunicative but disciplined, and they require the same from others, including pets. They need an excellent mutual understanding from the first minute; otherwise, this animal will not suit them. Ever striving to the top of the social ladder, Capricorn will be happy with any animal that emphasizes the status of the owner. If you live in your own house, then choose a lynx, dog, or mini-horse. When living in the apartment, opt for a fashionable smooth-haired dog or an exotic cat.

However, animals that are difficult to train should be avoided, since the representatives of your sign are so disciplined and demanding that it will be hard for you to get along with a restless and idle pet.

Capricorns can be upset by tactless animals. Here, you need a beast with a good reputation: a Persian cat or even a Don Sphynx is ideal because Capricorns are snobs a little bit. As for choosing a dog, give preference to a collie – it will be a great companion for walking at weekends. Bonus: these animals enhance comfort at home. Therefore, Capricorns will be more willing to leave work and go home.

Aquarius (21.01 – 19.02)

Aquarians crave for everything new and unusual. The perfect pet for them will be the one no of their acquaintance owns. Their craving for the unusual and the original has no bounds. If an Alpaca could be kept at home, Aquarius would surely use this opportunity. They just need to give someone a lot of attention.

If you decide to buy a dog, then choose those who do not require a special and tough training system. The Labrador, Bernese Mountain Dog, Yorkshire Terrier, Bedlington Terrier, or Bichon Frize will suit you perfectly.

A rodent such as a rat or a hamster is unlikely to become a real friend for you. As a rule, these animals offend the aesthetic feel of the representatives of your zodiac sign and cause a sense of disgust rather than a burst of tenderness.

Some Aquarius love animals more than people. Stars advise independent pets such as lizards or turtles – you will enjoy their self-sufficiency. Actually, Aquarius would like something truly exotic to surprise friends: a snake, a spider, an iguana, a domestic pig, a ferret, or a chinchilla. And if there enough space, llamas will do as well.

Pisces (20.02 – 20.03)

This is one of the most caring signs of the zodiac. Your pet will be surrounded with attention and care.

Pisces are sensitive and romantic. They are great matches for any animals, except too exotic. You can easily find common grounds with cats, dogs, and birds. And the smooth movements of colorful fish in an aquarium will please your eye and help you find peace of mind.

It seems natural to assume that a Pisces wants to get an aquarium. And since Pisces is a water sign, the aquarium is a great choice. But everything is much more complicated. Those born under this sign are ready to take home all the animals they meet on the street. An abandoned cat or an orphaned dog – soft-hearted Pisces are not able to resist their mournful eyes. And in childhood, they probably brought birds with broken wings or cats injured by an attack. 

Summarizing the Results 

When choosing a pet, you need to rely not only on your sympathy or intuition – make sure that the temperament of the animal harmoniously corresponds to the character of the owner. 

Pets make a person's life brighter. They love their owners wholeheartedly, patiently wait for them and joyfully meet them coming from work every day. But each of them has its own character. Based on the astrological horoscope, you will be able to choose the perfect pet.
