We’re crossing the threshold between April and May and your dog’s tail is shooting straight in the air. It’s Taurus season, which is a particularly incredible time to be a dog. I mean, what does a dog love more than a hearty meal, a solid belly rub, and a long walk through nature? A Taurus loves all these things too. Plus, who’s more loyal than a dog? And what zodiac sign is more loyal than a Taurus? There’s something just inherently “Taurus” about being a dog, and if your dog just so happens to be a Taurus, then you must have hit the astro-pup-ical jackpot.
If you’re feeling just as nostalgic for the past as a typical Taurus, you can check out last week’s dog horoscope. But come on, let’s get excited about what’s to come this Taurus season because your April 27 to May 3 weekly dog horoscope is here:
You may be a hyper and feisty Aries dog, but that doesn’t mean the thought of getting to curl up in a cozy snuggle with your human after a ginormous meal doesn’t sound utterly pup-tastic. This week, you’re feeling inspired to get comfortable in new ways. There might be a flavor of doggie kibble you never used to like, but now you can’t help but lick the bowl completely clean as you eat it. Maybe a bed (the one your human bought you last Christmas that you never cared for) has never felt softer, and it keeps beckoning you with the promise of another nap. You’re a dog, Aries, and dogs love earthly pleasures. Let your desire lead the way!
You’re ruled by Venus, Taurus. Didn’t you know that? This means you’re one of the most beautiful doggies in all the zodiac, yes you are! In fact, you’re feeling so beautiful that you might even be in the mood to try out a new hairstyle. Unfortunately, all the doggie groomers are probably closed because of quarantine, but that’s making the prospect of reaching for the clippers and DIY-ing it at home all the more intriguing. I know you’re bored, Taurus pup, but while you’re envisioning adorable, your lack of opposable thumbs will land you with horrible! You don’t want to spend the rest of quarantine growling when you look in the mirror, do you? At least ask your human for help!
Have you heard the rumors about your zodiac sign, Gemini? Some people are calling you two-faced and air-headed but that’s only because they haven’t gotten the chance to pet you yet. Don’t let the haters get you down, Gemini, because your emotional depth and spiritual inclinations are misunderstood by most. In fact, this week, your intuition is so incredibly powerful that you might even be accidentally predicting the future! Are you suddenly getting visions of winning a game of fetch with your human as you tire them out? That’s right! Your human won’t know what hit them because your fortune-telling skills definitely gave you the upper paw. Tune in to your gut feelings this week, Gemini. You won’t regret it!
Hey, Cancer! The genie is here and ready not just to rub your belly, but also to grant you three wishes. Didn’t you know genies visited dogs too? Anyway, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and you should make those wishes good! Don’t go with your first canine instinct, Cancer. Like, don’t wish for raw sirloin steak or an extra bag of treats. Come on, you can wish for anything! Do you want to be the most famous dog in the world? Do you want to end doggy hunger forever? Do you feel like traveling to distant lands where you can go on the most amazing walks of all time? Think deeply about this, Cancer. Your wishes have the power to change your world forever. Now’s not the time to think small!
Look atchu, Leo! It’s like the world can’t get enough of you. I mean, you do realize you’re ruled by the sun, don’t you? That means you’re radiating light wherever you go and everyone appreciates the way you make the world shine. This week, you might find that you’re getting way more attention than usual. In fact, when you go on your walks, people have to try really hard to follow social distancing orders and not run over to pet you. Chances are, you’ll probably notice that dogs need to be the ones restraining their humans when they see you! All this attention feels amazing, doesn’t it? However, try not to let it get to your head, Leo. The way you’re so self-assured about your effect on people makes you that much cuter.
Everyone thinks that because you’re a Virgo, you must be obsessed with having order and routine. However, this week, you’re growling and groaning over how monotonous everything has become. After all, too much order will even bore a Virgo! This week, you’ll want to practice being open to spontaneous things. A midnight walk because you and your human are feeling restless? Sounds great! Learning how to balance tennis balls on your snout? Even more paw-some! You’ll also want to embrace things out of your cultural norm. Why not spend your time studying every species of dog and their ways of life? You’re the leash that ties all dogs together!
You’ve got so much extra time on your paws, Libra. Why not use it to get something important done? In fact, you could come out of quarantine a completely different dog if you choose! What is a part of your life you’d love to transform? Would you love to learn how to speak your human’s language a bit better so you can have deeper conversations? Would you like to learn new tricks, such as rolling over or playing dead? Believe it or not, Libra, there’s so much in it for you! After all, every time you get it right, your human will hand you a treat. So what are you waiting for? Get to training!
Do you miss all your besties from the dog park, Scorpio? It’s no wonder! Quarantine has been going on for over a month now and you’ve had the opportunity to smell exactly 0 butts. What’s up with that? Well, Scorpio, the cosmos have good news and you might just find yourself befriending someone you would never have expected. Take a trip to your backyard and you’ll meet your friends Mr. Squirrel, Mr. Lizard, Miss Grasshopper, and Miss Neighborhood Cat (the one you can’t remember the name of because you can’t read what her collar says). Just because they aren’t dogs doesn’t mean they don’t have a lot of friendship to offer! Open your heart, Scorpio pup.
Sagittarius, you’re normally the messiest and most chaotic dog around. Of course, it’s what your human loves you for! I mean, you’re always down to roll in the mud on a hot day or rummage through garbage as though it’s a five-course fine dining meal. However, this week, you’re not really acting like yourself. Why? Because you’re organizing all your toys and putting them back in their respective positions. You’re even keeping to the sidewalks during your daily walks, preventing your paws from catching grass stains. While your owner might be wondering what’s gotten into you, they can’t help but appreciate what an effort you’re putting into keeping things clean!
You know what they always say about Capricorns, don’t you? Oh, just that you radiate major CEO-vibes (Canine Executive Operator, of course), and when you put your mind to getting something done, your tail will be wagging from start to finish. This week, you’re feeling very creative and in the mood to dip those paws into some paint and create some art. But maybe you’re not much of a painter. Maybe you’re a writer and you can’t stop writing paw-etry? Maybe you’re a singer and you can’t help but belt your favorite tunes with that barri-bone voice of yours! Whatever you decide to do, try not to concern yourself with paw-fection. All that matters is that you’re having fun!
You’re feeling warm and fuzzy inside, Aquarius. Even though everyone thinks your zodiac sign is aloof and disconnected, you’re proof that Aquarius can be the most loving sign in all the zodiac! In fact, you’re feeling so loving that you don’t want to leave your human’s side, not even while they leave through the front door to grab the mail! However, there might be times you wish you could be human just like everyone else in your family. The fact that you have a tail and whiskers might be making you feel a little bit different! Hush now, sweet Aquarius. Your family loves you whether you’re a dog, a crocodile, or a spider! Well, maybe not the spider, but for you, I’m sure they’d make an exception.
Why are you so loud, Pisces? This isn’t like you! You’re normally a pretty shy and sensitive pup, and external stimuli tends to make you chase your tail. Not this week! In fact, you’re barking so much that you’re driving your humans bananas. It’s not like they can take a break from you and leave the house for a bit, they’re in quarantine! And even when they do take you for a walk, you’re getting in a massive barking match with the dog walking across the street. Even if you guys are having a very serious conversation in dog-lish, all your human hears is “bark bark bark bark”! At least try to practice inside voices when you’re actually inside, understood?
