Dog Zodiac Signs: What Their Sign Says About Them, 2024 Horoscopes and More

You probably know your own zodiac sign, but do you know your dog’s zodiac sign? Dog astrology signs can provide insights into what makes your pet tick, and knowing more about your dog’s personality can help you better care for them.

Since the beginning of time, people have been staring at the stars and planets in the sky trying to figure out their place in the cosmos. By examining the positions of the planets at the time of an individual's birth, astrologers can learn a great deal about a person or pet, such as their character and potential as well as their limitations and how to resolve them. Astrology can also give us insight into current issues, the timing of events and how compatible we are with the important people—or pets—in our lives.

Is your dog an attention-loving Leo, rebel Aquarius or energetic Aries? Read on to learn about the dog zodiac signs, what your dog’s astrology sign says about them and their 2024 horoscope provided by celebrity astrologer Lisa Stardust.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Element:
Fire

Ruler:
Mars

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac so it’s no surprise that these pets are born leaders. Male or female, these alphas love action and excitement. They are ambitious, courageous, thrive on being the boss and being first. Mars ruled canines are independent, driven and determined. They may insist on walking you rather than the other way around. They have a mind of their own and don’t necessarily come when they’re called. On the plus side, they have big hearts and a loving spirit that is irresistible and contagious.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Element:
Earth

Ruler:
Venus

You can sum Taurus up in one word: cozy! Born in the spring when the ground is lush and warmed by the sun, they’re sensual, earthy and natural. They are also practical, dependable and hard working with a deep love of nature and beauty. Like their human counterparts, Taurus canines can be stubborn and hate change. Do not move their water or food bowl. They also don’t like exercise but need it; make sure they have a regular routine. They thrive on creature comforts met in a physical environment that is quiet and safe. They have a loving disposition and are extremely loyal.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Element:
Air

Ruler:
Mercury

Ruled by mental Mercury, the Gemini sign is associated with communication, information, speaking and media. Gemini dogs are usually vocal. They are always busy and on the move, so they have a lot to bark about. Like their human counterparts, Gemini canines are super smart and highly curious, which can lead to both fun and mischief. Their personality can change from calm to crazy at the drop of a biscuit. But they have a comic quality that is thoroughly charming and will keep you entertained—and on your toes.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Element:
Water

Ruler:
Moon

Cancer is a water sign, motivated by emotion rather than logic, which makes them sensitive, compassionate and intuitive. Born when the sun is highest, they possess a quiet but intrinsic power and move at their own speed. Cancer canines love their naps and snacks. Because they’re not a fan of exercising, several short walks are better than long hikes. Loud noises are upsetting; they thrive best in safe, cozy surroundings with people they love. Born nurturers, they make good companions to other pets. Best of all, they’re deeply devoted and protective of their human parents.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Element:
Fire

Ruler:
Sun

Leo is the sign of the king, queen, performer and the lion. They are proud beings who are born to rule, born to shine and love being the center of attention. Naturally charismatic, they exude warmth, vitality and power. Leo canines don’t like competition; they prefer being a single dog in a household that worships them and caters to their every need. They also adore being groomed and pampered and look forward to a trip to the doggy spa. Whether out on a hike or strolling through downtown, these celebrity pups will make you look like a star.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Element:
Earth

Ruler:
Mercury

Virgos get a bad rap. They are said to be critical, obsessive and overly analytical. The truth is they care a great deal and want things to be perfect. They are extremely dedicated and hard-working, with high ideals, great integrity and a love of service. Like Gemini, they are ruled by mind planet Mercury so Virgo pups know how to communicate, with their bark, actions or a serious look. They do best with order and routines: same food, same time of day. They also love being clean and groomed. They make great babysitters for kids and pups alike.

Element:
Air

Venus

Ruled by romantic Venus, Libra is the sign of love and marriage. Their goal is to create harmony, beauty and tranquility, so it’s no surprise this sign is associated with the artist, lover and the diplomate. They are known for their charm and have the gift of sensing what others need. Venus-ruled canines have appealing personalities and are deeply attached to other pets and humans. They prefer company rather than being alone and often like to follow their humans around. They’re uncomfortable in a stressful or chaotic environment and value peace and quiet over action and adventure.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Element:
Water

Ruler:
Pluto

Scorpio is a much-misunderstood sign. They’re known for being sexy and mysterious—which is often true, but it’s really about intensity with this sign. Scorpios know that life is tenuous and live more passionately as a result. They are the shamans and psychologists of the zodiac, exploring deep subjects, living on the edge. Like Scorpio humans, Scorpio canines are private, make serious eye contact and seem to be able to read your thoughts. They love being loyal to one person. It takes them a while to build trust, but when they do, you have a friend and ally for life.

Sagittarius is the symbol of the traveler, the philosopher and the student. They may not know the meaning of life, but they know life has a meaning and are on a quest to find it. For them, life is a daring adventure. They are known for their big dreams, big personalities and a love of travel. Sagittarius canines need room to roam and can feel anxious when they’re forced to stay indoors. They are happiest being outside as much as possible. They have colorful and comical personalities and are friendly (both with people and pets), and make superb traveling companions.

They’re great guard dogs and babysitters; they’ll even keep other pets and family members in line.

Aquarius is the sign of the rebel and the non-conformist. These individuals are smart as a whip, stubborn, rational and eccentric. Aquarius people and pets alike march to their own beat and make their own rules. Governed by eccentric Uranus, they can be unpredictable at times. They love change and hate being bored. Aquarian canines are always ready for a new toy, trick or getaway. They may not be warm and cuddly, but they’re extremely social and outgoing with people and other pets. In fact, no one makes a better or more loyal friend than these zany canines.

Ruled by inspirational Neptune, Pisces governs the invisible and the unseen world of inspiration and imagination. These are the dreamers, mystics and musicians of the zodiac. Deeply sensitive and highly intuitive, they need space and quiet. Pisces canines are gentle souls—kind and caring to a fault. They love being close to their humans, sometimes even following them around and sleeping under the covers. They also sense your moods which is why they make excellent therapy dogs.
