You love your cat, but do you really know them? Cats can be mysterious, complex, and inscrutable. Once you think you understand your cat’s behavior, they do something completely unexpected that changes everything you thought you knew. No matter if you’re a first-time cat-parent or you’ve had cats all your life, every cat has their own quirks, moods, and attitudes. When we have a greater understanding of our cats, we’re able to develop a better relationship with them.

One way that we can get answers is with astrology. Whether you’re a true-believer or you just like to look at your pet’s horoscope on occasion; the stars can provide a guide to help you learn about your cat’s true personality. If you’re lucky enough to know exactly when your cat was born, it’s easy enough to figure out their zodiac sign. If you don’t know their birthdate, try reading the descriptions of the various signs and see which one matches your cat the best. So, let’s get started, the stars have a lot to say about your cat’s personality.

Aries Cat (March 21 - April 19)

Your Aries cat loves adventure and is always looking for new ways to challenge themselves physically. The Aries cat will find the highest spot in the house and get up there — even if it gives their human heart palpitations. The Aries cat is courageous and will stand up for themselves when threatened. They’re lively, competitive, and impulsive. Aries cats don’t give a lot of thought before acting simply because that might involve them slowing down for a second.

Taurus Cat (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus cats are grounded, laid back, and down to earth. They enjoy being petted, groomed, and they’re not likely to pass up a meal. They enjoy their food and appreciate it when they get to try something new. A Taurus cat can be stubborn so getting them into a cat-carrier when they don’t want to be in one is a challenge! The Taurus cat enjoys luxury and soft surroundings so don’t be surprised if they choose your cashmere sweater to sleep on!

Gemini Cat (May 21 - June 20)

The Gemini cat is enthusiastic and ready to have fun — they’re always in touch with their inner-kitten. If you have a Gemini cat you’ve probably already noticed how smart they are. We all think our cats are geniuses, but you may wonder if your cat legitimately is one from the way they appear to figure out any problem. The Gemini cat will always be able to find that catnip you hide. Sometimes Gemini cats can be a bit high-strung and may hide under the bed when strangers are visiting. But once a Gemini cat gets to know somebody, they’re friends for life.

Cancer Cat (June 21 - July 22)

You won’t find a more faithful, loving, or protective kitty than the Cancer cat. They love their humans, and as long as they have a comfy bed, a clean litter box, regular meals, and consistent affection — they’re happy. The Cancer cat has a range of emotions so having some sensitivity and compassion for what they’re feeling helps the Cancer cat feel safe, loved, and secure.

Leo Cat (July 23 - August 22)

If you have a Leo cat, then you know that no matter when you got them; they’re always going to be the top cat in your household. Leo cats are strong, loyal, and energetic. They’re born with an instinct to protect and are natural leaders. They love being the center of attention and crave as much affection as they can get. Can cats have charisma? If they can, then the Leo cat has got it.

Virgo Cat (August 23 - September 22)

The Virgo cat is watchful and observant, even if you think they’re in a deep sleep, they’re conscious of what’s happening around them. They’re very clever and can figure out most problems when confronted with them. The Virgo cat is sensitive, so be careful not to hurt their feelings. Virgo cats can feel that they’re superior to everyone around them and that as far as being a cat goes — the Virgo cat is always on point. The Virgo cat finds no version of “Cats” amusing.

Libra Cat (September 23 - October 22)

The Libra cat is social, charming, and affectionate. When they brush up against you, not only are they marking you as theirs, they’re letting you know how much they adore you. The Libra cat changes their mind often. They may love the cat food you’re feeding them one day but the next day, they won’t touch it. The Libra cat enjoys relaxing and is very good at being lazy because they believe that their main job is looking pretty and being sweet.

Scorpio Cat (October 23 - November 21)

The Scorpio cat is focused and intense. If they set their mind to something, they’re going to do whatever they can to get it whether it’s a second breakfast or playtime with a new toy. It’s not unlike a Scorpio cat to get into a fight — and not always with other cats. Scorpio cats tend to be fearless and confrontational, so if a dog is in their way, the Scorpio cat isn’t above hissing or swatting at the dog to get them to move. There’s no feline more faithful than a Scorpio cat. You’ve heard stories of cats separated from their families who travel miles to get back to them? They were probably all Scorpio cats.

Sagittarius Cat (November 22 - December 21)

The Sagittarius cat is an explorer — they enjoy investigating every corner of their home and yard. The Sagittarius cat tends to be very people-friendly and will jump onto the lap of a stranger whether they’re a cat person or not. Sagittarius cats are hard to resist because they’re so beautiful and lovable. Sagittarius cats often don’t stay settled down for long as they have a lot of energy, are interested in new things, and get bored with routine.

Capricorn Cat (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn cats are wise beyond their years and are cautious and practical. A Capricorn cat doesn’t act impulsively; they consider their options. You can practically see the wheels turning in a Capricorn cat’s head. Do they get up from their comfy spot on the couch for a snack or just stay in the same spot until dinner time? Capricorn cats take things like grooming, litter box etiquette, and work seriously. Capricorn cats work as exterminators, companions, bodyguards, nurses, and box-inspectors — and they love their jobs.

Aquarius Cat (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius cats are friendly, independent, and loyal to their human companions. They’re extremely intelligent, creative, and can take almost anything and turn it into a toy. The Aquarius cat is equally happy being pampered by their human or doing something on their own. They can be aloof sometimes but don’t take it personally, it’s just an Aquarius cat taking care of their emotional needs by detaching. One never knows what an Aquarius cat is going to do because they’re unpredictable and can be hard to figure out.

Pisces Cat (February 19 - March 20)

The Pisces cat is intuitive and can sense when their human needs some comforting and love. The Pisces cat is kind and as selfless as a cat can be. They’re affectionate, gentle, and helpful. While it can seem as if they’re lazy and that they don’t do much at all, the truth is that the Pisces cat has a rich imagination and is very creative. What you may think is damage, such as a clawed couch, the Pisces sees as art. And it would be wrong to stand in the way of true genius.
