Finding the perfect pet isn’t just about how cute the animal is, there’s a lot of other factors to consider when choosing what kind of pet is right for you. Some really important elements you need to keep in mind is whether the pet you’re looking for will mesh well with your kind of lifestyle, the amount of time and attention they need, and their general personalities. As we’ve all come to be obsessed with our birth chart and reading up on our zodiac signs, a good thing to consider is whether your pet matches your zodiac sign characteristics and personality traits. Here are some suggestions on the perfect pet for you based on your zodiac sign!
As someone who possesses high passion and energy, you need a pet who’s going to bring out your liveliness. Being the leader of the zodiac pack, what better pet for an Aries than a furry canine companion? A puppy is the perfect pet for you because they’ll be able to match your enthusiasm. With an energetic pup by your side, you’ll be sure to share lots of fun adventurous for the rest of your lives.
You are one tough cookie, Taurus. You have a bit of a stubborn personality and can be a little lazy, but you know how to stay grounded. You need a pet who’s not going to require that much energy on your part, and what better than a turtle with an earthy aquarium set-up for an Earth sign like you? A turtle would be the perfect pet for you as they’re known for their quiet nature, but slight attitude, and they’ll complement your slow-but-steady personality.
As the most talkative sign of the bunch, a parrot would best complement your personality, Gemini. You’re constantly thinking and wanting to engage in conversation, so you need an animal that you can talk to at all hours of the day. A parrot is perfect for someone as chatty and full of wit as you because they’re intelligent, interesting, and best of all – able to talk back!
You love being able to bring things you love close to you, and a hamster is just small enough to hold in your hands for you to be able to do so. Your caring and nurturing nature is perfect for a delicate little hamster. You’ll both love spending a comfortable night at home catering to each other’s emotional needs.
You love being the center of attention, Leo. You need a pet who’s going to mimic your big and bold personality, and a horse would be a wonderful choice for you. You’re regal at heart and what’s more majestic than riding your horse in a huge open field? You and your pet horse would make a very impressive and powerful pair.
You need a pet who’s going to match your clean and organized personality. You’re very well put together and probably don’t have the patience to own an animal like a dog or cat, so a low maintenance pet like a fish is more up your alley. You also love little things, so a couple of small fish are perfect for you.
You’re the type of person that hates to be left alone, so you need a furry and cuddly companion who’s going to enjoy your company and vice versa. A rabbit is a social animal who would be ideal for you as they can depend on your balanced and harmonious nature to bring peace and play into their world. As the sign ruled by Venus, you are governed by love and will very much enjoy caring for and building a special relationship with your rabbit.
Really, Scorpio, are you even surprised? Your sign resonates so well with the seductive and secretive nature of the snake. You have a fascination for the mysterious and dark, so a snake would be the perfect pet for you. You’ll appreciate its eerie beauty and dangerous edge, and together you’ll make one intimidating pair.
Sagittarius: An Older Cat
You’re always on the go, Sagittarius, so you need a pet who’s not going to notice when you’re not around. If you’re planning on adopting a pet, an older cat whose breed doesn’t require much of your attention is a great choice for you. They’re easy to take care of and still make great companions. Your desire to constantly be traveling will match well with an older cat’s free-spirited nature.
Capricorn: Guinea Pig
You need a pet who’s going to fit well with your workaholic and structured lifestyle, so an animal that requires a lot of your attention probably isn’t the best choice for you. A couple of guinea pigs would be a perfect addition to your life because they’re pretty low maintenance and can be left alone for a bit, but still, enjoy being cared for by their owner. You’ll be able to provide just the right amount of nurture for your guinea pigs without feeling all that guilty that you’re not giving them enough attention ’cause they’ll have each other anyway.
An adventurous little pig would be a perfect pet for your weird and eccentric personality, Aquarius. You love keeping it interesting, and what better than a pig to keep you on your toes? Pigs are incredibly smart, which matches well with your intelligent personality. Your life will always be full with a cute piglet by your side.
Pisces and cats have a very special psychic connection with each other. You don’t just own a cat, you instantly form a bond with each other like no other and become family. Like a cat, you’re a natural loner, but still need some love and attention every now and then. Adopting a cat is perfect for you because when the world fails you, all you’ll need is your kitty to lean on and make everything better.
