The study of astrology, or the belief that the movements and placements of planets and stars have a direct impact on our lives, has been around almost as long as humans have. Learning your sun sign and what it entails has remained a cultural constant for generations. But what hasn’t been explored nearly as much is how this will affect our dogs. And, if we’re being honest, these are the real questions worth asking!
Your dog’s zodiac sign is another way to examine the pupper’s personality, even if it’s just for fun. This is your dog’s horoscope for the week of November 18 - 24.
Warning: This content is not meant for humans, but in the off chance your dog isn’t super good at reading, you can take a look.
You’ve had a bit of a ruff month, sweet Aries, and things are finally looking up. Saturn’s out of the doghouse and all signs are pointing to the fact that you’re a very good dog. A VERY GOOD DOG. You deserve the world, all the food, and a long soak in a bubble bath. A clean pupper is a happy pupper. Remember: This is no time to extend yourself anymore than you already do — take that extra nap, destroy that other shoe, eat the whole damn bag of treats. There’s no such thing as no this week.
With Mars positioned opposite Uranus, things may feel a little tenser than normal — and we’re not just talking your leash. Training is off the table this week. It doesn’t matter how many treats they’re offering, nobody can make you roll over. (Side note: How many treats are they offering?) Make sure to take a few calming gnaws of the chew toy before you really let them have it. Keep the growling to a minimum, but let your owner know, this is not the time to teach a Taurus dog new tricks.
The force is within you, Gemini dog, and this is the week you can tackle anything — or anyone. This is definitely the time to reopen old projects you never got a chance to finish. Been chasing your tail for years? Well, this is the time to try and actually succeed. Remember to take the time and appreciate your accomplishments and make sure others are appreciating them too. Spend time giving love this week, but spend even more time receiving it. Love should be mutual, but you’ve certainly earned a little extra.
This is a great week for making new friends, you social pupperfly, you. So don’t be afraid to stick your head in a few unfamiliar butts the next time you’re out and about. The whole world is your oyster, or at least, the four-block radius surrounding your house. I know you think you already have a great best friend at home who gives you cuddles and treats, but I’m here to tell you now, you can definitely do better.
You haven’t been getting enough attention; to be honest, you’ve never gotten enough attention and it’s driving you crazy. Even when they spend hours rubbing your belly, it’s never enough. If you feel your frustration boiling over into a barking rage, hit the doggy door and catch your breath. There’s nothing like a good game of fetch to center you. And if you want to stop trying to make fetch happen (it’s never going to happen), digging up the garden is a fun alternative.
Love is in the air and it’s not just of the puppy variety — it’s for full-grown dogs too. Your charisma is off the charts right now, so use those puppy dog eyes and land yourself a date, “Lady and the Tramp” style. This doesn’t have to be a forever thing, it can be no leashes attached. Share the spaghetti and watch your confidence soar as you cement yourself as the most eligible bachelor/ette in the dog park.
You’ve never looked so beautiful, you’re glowing. Is that a new haircut? Or are you just this naturally gorgeous? If you’ve been on the fence (or digging underneath it) about whether or not you should finally get yourself an Instagram, it’s time to take the leap. Just about everyone wants a piece of your pup-ularity this week and there’s no doubt you’d leave tongues wagging with your scintillating selfies. Sure IG likes aren’t the same as IRL love, but at least they’re getting rid of them, right?
This week is all about building a solid relationship with the human that picks up your poop. Communicating what you want from your best friend isn’t always straightforward, especially when you speak two different languages. Have patience with your human, it’s not their fault that they’re so simple. You can’t always telegraph your every move to make it painfully obvious, but maybe give a little heads up when you’re about to pee on the couch. It’s all about talking to your human more… especially at night. They love that.
It’s time for a whole new look. Sure, winter weather may not be the perfect time for a dramatic haircut, but you can make small, fun changes to satisfy the tiny voice barking inside of you, wanting a change. Swap your collar, get new shoes, maybe even try on a fancy raincoat. Even the happiest of pups can get stuck in a rut, and sometimes all it takes is a little self-love and treat yo’self spending. Every dog may have his day, but you get a whole week.
Expect good news this week. And if you don’t get it, feel free to chase the mailman until he delivers. All the good energy you’ve put into this world is about to come back like a boomerang and you’ll be ready and waiting for it with paws wide open. It may come in many forms, but you can certainly bank on the fact that it will be at least mostly (if not entirely) edible.
You’re having trouble communicating, and you can’t seem to get any of your points across. As a natural communicator, that can be frustrating, but it’s important to remember the smartest dog in the room isn’t the one barking the loudest. It may be a dog-eat-dog world out there, but you don’t have to cannibalize the competition to make yourself heard. Be zen and choose your words carefully before you get the paws out. You may find you have more in common with your neighbor’s super annoying dog than you think.
Little Pisces, it’s perfectly normal that you need a little extra love and attention this week, and there’s no shame in asking for it. Don’t be afraid to claw yourself onto laps or stand awkwardly in front of the television during all the important bits, if that’s what it takes. There’s no point in being shy about it. And if none of that works, hide where the humans can’t see you for a few hours and see how much attention they give you then. Works every time.
