Phew! It’s time to rest a little bit easier: Mercury retrograde is officially over as of this week, and your dog can finally see straight! If your dog has been extra silly lately, it’s all thanks to this pesky and tail-chasing transit. Luckily, the cosmos are starting to get their head in the game and your dog is ready for everything that comes next. With a full moon in Virgo taking place this week, your dog is embracing its power and howling with all their might! Why not show some solidarity and howl with your canine friend?
You might just think of your dog as a cute and cuddly mongrel you’re lucky to come home to, but dogs live a full life and they’re so much more than adorable. Luckily, your dog’s March 9 to March 16 horoscope proves that. However, you might be new to dog horoscopes, and if that’s the case, you might want to peruse the dog horoscope from last week as well. But don’t stay there too long because this full moon is coming at your dog fast.
You’re feeling so incredibly confident this week, Aries. You’re thinking back on every mean or critical thing anyone’s ever said to you and proving them wrong. Those people who prefer cats over dogs? Totally ignorant. Those people who said you need a bath? They need to mind their own business. That veterinarian who told your human you need to lose weight? You know you’re beautiful just as you are. Being a dog is not about being perfect. It’s about having a whole lotta heart! And lucky for you, Aries, you’ve got more heart than you’ll ever know what to do with. So get out there and show the world just what a paw-some canine you really are!

Have you suddenly transformed into a cat, Taurus? Seriously, this behavior of yours feels very feline. You’re hiding under the bed, sleeping for 20 hours a day, and slinking away whenever your human has visitors. This is not like you, Taurus! However, there’s no reason to panic. You’re just going through a phase. Now’s the time to prioritize your needs above all and no one does that better than a cat! If you find yourself purring instead of barking, it’s only because you’re in need of some rest. Let the haters hate, because you can’t be a “good doggie” all the damn time!

You can’t be friends with everybody, Gemini. I know you’re the dog who knows literally every single dog at the dog park, but at the end of the dog day, you need to be loyal to your pack. If you try to be a member of every pack, you’re depleting the worth of your friendship (and potentially end up in the dog house). Even if it means offending other canines, choosing your pack is way more important than being liked by everyone. And luckily, when it comes down to it, your human likes you no matter what! Don’t worry so much about maintaining your pup-ularity, Gemini. Worry more about your integrity.

It’s time to stand up for yourself this week, Cancer. I know you’re used to being the sweet and innocent pup who would rather avoid a dog fight, but it’s time to put your paw down once and for all. If the cat keeps stealing your bed, be firm and let them know you’re tired of their feline tricks. If your human is cutting your walks short, simply refuse to enter through the front door until they give you a full walk. If you’re being fed turkey when they know you prefer chicken, bark about it! No one is going to respect your needs unless you growl when things are unfair. You are not a dog with your tail between their legs, Cancer. You are an alpha, so start acting like it!

You have a tendency to be a bit stubborn, Leo. After all, Leo is a fixed sign, making you a dog that’s “fixed” in their ways. Believe it or not, Leo, old dogs really can learn new tricks! You just have to be open-minded enough to try things outside of your dog house, that’s all. This week, try things that are different from your usual routine. Instead of taking a walk through your typical route, why not explore the hiking trail? Instead of chasing the cat around the house, why not try finding common ground with your fellow animal friend? Things are not black or white, Leo. Even though dog vision is limited to a small range of color, trust that there is a whole rainbow of ideas out there.

You might be in quite an intense mood this week, Virgo. Are you howling at the moon? Are you pouting whenever your human refuses to share their dinner with you? Are you picking fights with the neighborhood cat (you know, the one who shows up and eats all your kibble when you’re not looking)? Give yourself a break, Virgo. You’re an emotional dog and you have every right to feel bummed out every now and then. But don’t lose hope! The universe will throw you a bone sooner or later. These dog days are only temporary. However, if they get really terrible in the meantime, visiting a doggie therapist might be a good idea. You deserve to have someone listen as you bark about your problems!

You may be taking the idea of being “man’s best friend” a little too seriously this week, Libra. You’re following your human around everywhere, even to the bathroom! You’re a pit of doggie depression whenever they leave the house. You’re jealous when they so much as pet the cat. Unless you’re a toy-sized dog who can fit in your human’s purse and accompany them everywhere, it would be wise to work through your attachment issues this week. Just because your human isn’t paying attention to you 24/7 does not mean they don’t love you! There’s a difference between being “man’s best friend” and “man’s co-dependent shadow.” You are loved, Libra. Start believing it!

There’s so much to do and so little time, Scorpio! This week, you need to figure out better time-management skills because you’ve been wasting so much energy on meaningless things. Are you seriously going to spend your whole day digging holes in your human’s well-tended garden? Are you honestly going to bark at every single person walking down the sidewalk in front of the house? You have way bigger fish to fry, Scorpio! Make sure you’re not barking up the wrong tree, because you know you have way more important things to be doing. You’re a dog, not a human! Humans are the ones who procrastinate, remember?

You’re starting to get older, Sagittarius, but don’t let becoming an “adult dog” stand in the way of your own fun. Being mature doesn’t mean you’re too good to get down and dirty! This week, get in touch with how unapologetically excited you were when you were a puppy. No matter how much dog training your human makes you go through, your inner-puppy never dies! Don’t you remember how wonderful the world looked through your young, inexperienced puppy eyes? Every single day was a new adventure! The adventures don’t have to stop just because you’ve aged a bit, so “unleash” that inner-puppy of yours!

Your family is really relying on you this week, Capricorn. It’s time to set a shining example for all dogs everywhere! At the end of the day, a dog’s job is to make their human’s life better and to be a source of comfort for your family as a whole. This week, you better give some extra cuddles and spread the puppy love. Stand guard at the house just in case you need to bark at some potential intruders. Whenever your human seems stressed out, give them a lick and make them laugh instead. You are the heart of the home, Capricorn, and being a dog is a very important job!

Whoa, Aquarius! You’re barking so much that everybody else can barely get a word in! This week, practice listening instead of talking. Communication is a two-way street and you need to be able to hold your snout when other people are talking. If you bark over everyone, you’ll look like you’re trying to hog the conversation (just like you hog the ball during games of fetch, but I digress). I know you’re an air sign (and let’s be real, when do air signs ever stop talking?), but you need to let other dogs have a chance to woof every once in a while. Plus, you’ll be pleasantly surprised about all the dog tails everyone has to tell!

You have so many things you don’t need anymore, Pisces. All those toys you never play with are collecting dust, you have way more beds than you’ll ever need, and you know you don’t require five different leashes. In fact, this surplus of your belongings is giving you a bit of doggie anxiety! You’re one of the most charitable dogs in all the zodiac, so why not dog-nate these things to dogs who are in need? Not only will it clear up space in your own home, but it will lift your puppy spirits to know that you are making a positive difference in this world. You’ll remember the look on those dogs’ faces when they get their new toys fur-ever!
