Astrology. Its tenants are maligned by some and extolled by others. Whether you consider star signs abject hokum or celestial science, it’s really just a bit of fun at the end of the day. However, astrology doesn’t just limit itself to the carnal and romantic, the fiduciary and familial; it’s also got thoughts on the primary focus of our website… doggos!
So fix your tinfoil hat in place, get your divination crystals out and check out what your star sign says about you as a doggo parent!
1. Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Independent and free-spirited, the Aquarius doggo parent is most likely to see their pup as an equal rather than an inferior. You’re likely to cut your dog a bit more slack, and give him the freedom to live life however he sees fit!
2. Pisces: February 19 – March 20
A Pisces dog parent has a big heart that’s absolutely bursting with empathy. You’ll protect your pup no matter the cost, but you do have a tendency to spare the rod and spoil the doggo from time to time. That said, you’re seriously protective, and no-one will ever want to mess with your pet.
3. Aries: March 21 – April 19
Ares is the god of war in Roman mythology, but that doesn’t mean you’re a mean dog owner. What it means is you’re one to set stable boundaries and maintain a world of your own. This mean your doggo is going to have 100% respect for you and be reluctant to misbehave. Not because he’s scared of you, but because he doesn’t want to disappoint you.
4. Taurus: April 20 – May 20
A Taurus parent is a stickler for routine. Sensible with a good head on her shoulders, she can be a little on the stubborn side, however. That’s no cause for concern; she’s the perfect match for a strong-willed dog who she can have a real relationship with.
5. Gemini: May 21 – June 20
A Gemini dog parent has a special connection to her pack that cannot be replicated by any other star sign. With a litany of special interests, what a Gemini hates most is too much routine. So they’re at home having random playtime with their dogs. This can lead to a lack of boundaries, so be careful.
6. Cancer: June 21 – July 22
The most maternal of all the star signs, Cancers are super sensitive to their doggo’s concerns and just as protective. A big fan of traditions, this doggo parent will spend a lot of time bonding with their pup. They’re also very good at calming down their doggo when they are distressed, just like a good mum.
7. Leo: July 23 – August 22
Leo’s are the over-attached theatre moms of doggo parents. Vibrant, full of energy and always up for a good time, a Leos’ confidence washes over their doggo, leaving them feeling safe and secure. Much like the lion that is their namesake, Leo’s are fiercely loyal and protective, which provides their doggo with a lot of security.
8. Virgo: August 23 – September 22
A Virgo doggo parent may seem a little bit square, but that’s just because Virgos have gotten their shit together. This means they have compiled a massive databank of information in their own heads that they can call on whenever there is a problem. They are great doggo parents.
9. Libra: September 23 – October 22
A Libra mom is laid back and casual. She will treat her doggo like she’d treat her own child, almost to a fault, sometimes giving them more rope than they should normally get. This is definitely the star sign to set up an Instagram page entirely for their dog.
10. Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
Do not cross the doggo of the Scorpio parent unless you want to feel her wrath! Intense and with a laser focus on their pet the Scorpio star sign parent is an inspiration to others. She will also form the strongest bond possible with her pet.
11. Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
Spontaneous and adventurous, Sagittarius doggo parents are the type to go on a last minute round-the-world trip and take their doggo with them every step of the way. She’s also pretty wise and will have the most enlightened approaches to parenting you could imagine.
12. Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
A Capricorn is always busy, so you bet she’s trained her doggo to perfection to make up for the times when she can’t be around. She can be a bit of a workaholic though, and probably needs to spend more time with her dog just chillaxing.
What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology? Do you think it reflects on your choices as a doggo parent? Personally, I think that even if it is a bit of load, it’s a pretty fun way to think about these things. May Jupiter forever be in your fourth moon.
