The holidays have arrived and your pup is decorating their dog house with the brightest and most colorful lights in the neighborhood. The sun is in disciplined and ambitious Capricorn, encouraging your pup to be the best pup they can be. This week, your dog is working hard to impress you by showing off their canine cuteness and being on their best behavior, especially as the sun meets with innovative Uranus and optimistic Jupiter. Excited to see a side of your dog you’ve never seen before? On Dec. 26, a life-changing solar eclipse will take place and your pup might just leave you with a holiday surprise. Do they have a secret talent they’ve been hiding? Will they finally start getting along with the cat? Stay tuned, because your doggie’s destiny is revealing itself.
If astrology can help us explore our hidden depths and understand our innate personalities, why can’t it also apply to dogs? Check out last week’s dog horoscope if you’re feeling nostalgic. If you’re curious about what’s to come for your dog during the week of December 23 to 29, keep reading:
You’re a competitive dog by nature. After all, Aries is ruled by fighter Mars, and you never back down when you’ve got your eyes on a goal. It’s nearly 2020, now’s the time to think big, Aries. Have you always wanted to film a viral video that shoots you to superstardom? Have you always fantasized about being the coolest dog at the local park? You can accomplish anything as long as you set your mind to it, you’re an Aries after all. Just remember not to compare yourself to all the dogs who have succeeded before you. Life’s a marathon, not a sprint, and there’s plenty of room at the finish line!

It’s time to snap out of that boring routine you’ve been stuck in and emBARK on an adventure, Taurus. Instead of waking up in the morning and gnawing on a bone like you always do, why not try something different? Why not soak up the sun and roll around in the grass? Why not ask your human to take you on a hike? You’re in the mood for fresh air, a blank itinerary, and a road that leads to nowhere in particular. As long as you can find your way back home, any adventure is worth taking.

You’re feeling emotional and sentimental this week, Gemini, so curl up with your human and ask them for some extra TLC (Treats! Love! Cuddles!). Pull out those irresistible puppy dog eyes if you have to! But if your human is busy working or you even catch your human giving the cat attention instead of you (Really, human?!), there’s no reason to feel jealous. Just because you aren’t getting your belly scratched all day long doesn’t mean you aren’t loved. You’re an adorable dog, after all! You’re the easiest thing to love in the world.

You’re falling in love this week, Cancer, and it’s not the same way you do every week. Did that gorgeous, but hard-to-get poodle you flirted with at the dog park catch your eye? Or is it the neighbor’s labrador that has your stomach filled with butterflies? This may be the start of a beautiful romantic affair, Cancer, so let down your guard and tell your crush that you’d like to take them out on a spaghetti date (“Lady and the Tramp” style). If romance is out of the question, you’re definitely making a new best friend. Who knows? Maybe you and the cat have more in common than you thought! Well, probably not.

This week is all about making sure you form healthy habits, Leo, that will take you into the new year. Have you been begging at the table lately? Eating from the cat’s bowl when they’re not looking? Tearing up your human’s favorite stuffed animal? It’s fun to be a naughty dog (believe us, we know), but being able to fight your worst impulses is one of the best tricks you can learn. Spend some time organizing your toys, make an appointment at the groomers, and get your house in order. Your human will be so proud. And nothing makes you happier than making your human proud.

You’re smart, logical, and detail-oriented, Virgo. You probably were housebroken faster than any other dog in the neighborhood and you’re famous for your cleanliness. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself to be perfect! You’re allowed to be a messy, joyful, and wild little pup from time to time. Feel free to loosen your collar and bark like nobody’s listening. Why not play a game of fetch like you did when you were a puppy? Why not chew on your favorite bone all afternoon long? Why not flop around in the mud? Whatever you decide to do, make sure you bask in the knowlege that you deserve a little me time.

You’re the reason for the season, Libra. You make a house feel like a home. When your human walks through the front door after a long day at work, you’re the first thing they see. You bring pure joy so don’t worry about what the rest of the world thinks. You don’t have to change a million lives when you can make a few so much better. Focus on how good it feels to curl up in your bed, watch your favorite movie (“Homeward Bound”, am I right?), and lie by a warm fireplace. It’s the little things in life that make it worthwhile. So indulge in all the little things that make you feel cozy and safe.

You tend to be an introverted dog, Scorpio. It’s not that you’re shy, it’s just that you prefer to spend time with your trusted pack (and a few other people who feed you). However, despite the gray weather and dark days, this holiday season, you’re feeling incredibly sociable. You’re gravitating toward your human’s loud and overly affectionate aunt and you’re even befriending the nervous Chihuahua she always brings in her purse! This week, you better embrace that energy, crawl out of your dog house, and mingle with the rest of the party. Don’t be intimidated. They won’t bite… harder than you.

You’re feeling extravagant and luxurious this week, Sagittarius. What could be waiting for you under that tree? There are countless presents with your name on it. Santa may have come early this year and you’ve definitely made the “nice” list. Play with your new ball, don your sparkly new collar, and treat yourself to a savory feast. You don’t need to be modest and you certainly shouldn’t hold back. Be the most “extra” dog in the neighborhood and make every other pup jealous. Just don’t forget to return the favor to those who take care of you. Don’t bite the hand that feeds.

You’re at a critical moment in your life, Capricorn. It’s time to grow up and become the dog you know you can be. It was fun being a carefree, wild, and mischievous little pup, but now, it’s time to get serious. Do you want to protect your human from all harm? Do you want to roll over and get all sorts of yummy treats as a reward? Step up to the plate and be brave. You are man’s best friend! You are a dog that everyone wishes they had. You are a dog every other dog wants to be. In this dog-eat-dog world you’re about to come out on top – and you may not even have to eat any other dogs while doing it.

Ready to hit the snooze button this week, Aquarius? You’re heavily drawn to your own little dream world, so don’t feel bad about sleeping all day long and exploring your subconscious. You’re dreaming about a wonderland filled with cheese, icing, filet mignon, and every human food you’re not allowed to eat. You’re dreaming of sunny summer days at the beach running without your leash on. If your human takes videos of you while you bark in your sleep, it’s only because you look so cute while you’re doing it. And, hey, a career as a sleeping dog influencer sounds right up your alley.

If you’ve ever dreamed of inviting every dog in the neighborhood to a party at your place as soon as your human leaves, this is the week to do it. You’re a friend to all dogs of all kinds from all walks of life, Pisces, that’s the peacemaker in you. Why not be a bit of a rebel and send out invites sealed with a paw print? Your human won’t be home until late, after all. Invite the corgi, the golden retriever, the bulldog, the Italian greyhound, and the Dalmatian, too! Every dog’s tail will be wagging all night long and your party will be remembered for all the dog years to come.
