Gather your bearings because there’s a full moon in Leo this week and it’s got every dog in town howling their hearts out. When the moon is at its brightest and most powerful state, things have a tendency to get a bit primal in the neighborhood, encouraging your dog to channel their ancient wolf ancestors and unleash their wild canine spirits. When you hear your dog howling, you definitely have the full moon to thank for it (or maybe it’s just a siren blaring down the street, but either way). The astrology is intense this week and your dog’s behavior might just reflect that.
If you’re into astrology, you know that checking your weekly horoscope is non-negotiable and you’re always hoping for a bit of good news. Naturally, if you’re a dog owner, you can’t help but wonder if your pup is being affected by the cosmos just as you are. Well, wonder no longer, because your dog’s horoscope for the week of February 2 to 9 is here and it describes exactly what your dog may be going through. Oh, and in case you missed it, here’s last week’s dog horoscope. But, let’s not dwell on the past, because your pup has got some big plans for the future.
You do things with all your heart or not at all, Aries. In a way, you’ve never stopped being a puppy. You experience things with just as much excitement as you did when you were just a little one! When you get a new toy, it’s as if you’re playing fetch for the first time. When you go for a walk, it’s like you’ve never sniffed the great outdoors before. Get back in touch with that passion of yours this week, Aries. What truly makes your tail wag? What really gets you panting with enthusiasm? Tap into your creative spark and enjoy every waking moment of your life. Unlike your fellow feline, you don’t have nine lives to spare. You’ve only got one, so make it count.

No one makes themselves at home the way you do, Taurus. Did you know your zodiac sign is inextricably tied to a passion for food and comfort? As a matter of fact, whenever your human tries to admonish you for begging at the table, just blame it on being a Taurus! They can’t argue with that. It’s not like you can help it. This week, you should embrace the fact that you’re a homebody all the way down to your canine core. You love a warm blanket, a human to snuggle with, and a bowl full of the finest doggie chow and there’s nothing wrong with that. If anyone judges you for canceling all your plans and lying low, they apparently don’t know you at all. And you don’t need that kind of energy in your life!

There’s a full moon this week and no one’s howling louder than you, Gemini. After all, you are the most talkative zodiac sign of all, and the full moon always inspires you to bark with all your might. However, instead of worrying about how powerful your howl sounds, you should worry about what it is you’re howling about in the first place. Be honest with your howl, Gemini. If you don’t express your truth, the world will never know the real you. It’s time to come clean and let the world know what matters to you most. As they say, the truth always sets you free, and this week, you’re a hound unleashed from its pen. Run wild and howl like you mean it!

You’re not typically the most outgoing dog, Cancer. While other dogs introduce themselves by jumping onto a human and invading their space, you tend to approach with caution, giving them a sniff and a lick before getting to know them better. Instead of demanding attention, you attract it effortlessly with your adorable shyness and sensitive demeanor. However, none of this means you don’t enjoy being flashy! In fact, you love a bedazzled collar, a fancy dog sweater, and a bow in your hair. This week, you have every reason to hit up the salon, make your way to the mall, and charge that canine card. Just don’t get carried away! The full moon has a tendency to make you go a bit overboard.

I bet you love telling everyone you’re a Leo. It does happen to be the zodiac sign of pride, glory, and creativity! Why shouldn’t you brag? However, I hate to break it to you, Leo. Your zodiac sign is symbolized by the lion, which is just a fancy-shmancy word for a big cat. Don’t worry, I won’t tell the other dogs! But you should, Leo. There’s a full moon in your name this week and it’s time to come to terms with who you really are. Try not to worry so much about what all the other dogs think. You’re perfect just as you are. In fact, you are paw-some. If the other dogs laugh because you’re symbolized by a glorified feline, they’re just jealous.

A full moon tends to radiate magic and power and no one knows that better than a dog. This week, you’re tapping into the full moon’s intensity and it’s kicking your psychic senses into gear. Are you seeing the future, Virgo? Grab your crystal ball. It’s showing you tasty, savory, bacon-flavored treats in the next while. It’s showing you a beautiful tree to pee on. It’s showing you your human, who’s so excited to see you… except wait a minute — they’re actually just annoyed with you for rummaging through garbage yet again! When will you learn, Virgo? Your clairvoyance is giving you another chance to create an even better future. Don’t set the bar so low!

Don’t be a lone wolf, Libra. I know it’s tempting to go your own way and establish your independence, but that goes against everything that being a dog is all about. Bring your pack back together! Believe it or not, your family is only as strong as their dog, and you have the power to be the leash that ties everyone together. Why not suggest you and your family go on a hike together? Why not have a picnic and a game of frisbee? If it feels like your pack is drifting apart, it’s up to you to spark up that connection again. Besides, nothing will give you more pride than hearing the words “good doggie” once you do!

It’s time to get serious about your career, Scorpio. You’ve been lounging around the house all day chewing on bones, dreaming about chasing cats, and waiting for your belly to be scratched, but there’s work to be done. Think about your idols, like Rin-Tin-Tin or Clifford, the Big Red Dog. You can be a famous dog in your own right if you put in the work! It’s time to fight hard to be the best dog you can be. Practice shooting some hoops, playing dead, high-fiving, or any of those other tricks you know you have under sleeve. Your future is in your paws, Scorpio. Are you willing to take your talents to the next level?

You may be focusing on what you don’t have rather than what you do have, Sagittarius. Your human is gone for work all day, it’s cloudy outside, and the cat is sleeping on your bed. All of these things are definitely annoying, but let’s try to think of the doggie bowl as half-full instead of half-empty. Take a step back and consider the big picture. You’ve got a human who loves you, food in your belly, and a cat to hang out with (when the cat is in a good mood, of course). Count your canine blessings this week, Sagittarius! Chances are, you’ve got so much to be grateful for. Not every dog is as lucky as you are.

There’s no need to compare yourself to others, Capricorn. You’re such an ambitious zodiac sign that you’re on the verge of putting too much pressure on yourself. You run yourself into exhaustion at the dog park, you take it personally when someone takes your ball away, and sometimes, you even get a little jealous when your human gives too much attention to the cat. Throw yourself a bone! You learned to respond to the sound of your name before any other puppy in your litter. You never beg at the table (well, maybe sometimes). You never chew on your foot (OK, only on special occasions). You’re probably the hardest working dog you know, so start giving yourself some paw-sitive feedback!

Are you in a relationship, Aquarius? Well, after this week, you might be! There’s another dog on your mind and it’s got your heart fluttering. You might be nervous about getting rejected, but love is always worth the risk, especially when you’re a dog! In fact, without love, what does a dog have? Make your feelings known. Who knows? They might just return them and your love could last fur-ever! I know you prefer to seem mysterious and aloof, Aquarius, but you’re actually quite sensitive underneath all that bark. Practice vulnerability this week and you’ll be running, open-pawed, into full-blown puppy love before you know it.

You know you prefer daydreaming over actually getting stuff done, Pisces. You could lie around all day creating elaborate scenarios in your head about making friends at the dog park, starring in your own viral Tik Tok video, or eating filet mignon for dinner! But when are you going to actually get up and start making your dreams happen? Make this week the time you stop pup-crastinating and start being more pup-active. Create a to-do list and start working through each thing one at a time. Remember, a dogtopia wasn’t build in a day, so don’t get discouraged when you don’t see results immediately. Keep working hard. Anything is is paw-ssible!
