Astrology 101: Ideal Animal Companions For Each Sign

We thought it would be fun to do a little astrology matchmaking this week, but instead of human soul mates, we’re talking about animals. Of course we all have our personal pet preferences, but there are certain animals you might feel a natural kinship with based on the energy, habits, and needs of your sun sign. We’ve got everything from typical cats and dogs to exotic birds and even farm animals! Click through to find your ideal animal companion …

Aries (March 21st-April 19th): A colorful and feisty beta fish will be a great pet for you. You two will understand and appreciate each other’s intense personalities and Betas are so low maintenance you will still have the freedom to go on many adventures whenever you please.

Taurus (April 20th-May 20th): A super cuddly lap kitty who loves to purr, purr, purr will win the hearts of Taureans. You will love spoiling them with fancy treats and they will love you back times infinity!

Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): Chatty Geminis will get along famously with a communicative parrot. You’ll appreciate its intelligence and besides, if you ever find yourself without someone talk with, you will always have your fine feathered friend.

Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): A loyal, calm, loving Golden Retriever makes an excellent companion for this sensitive sign. Although you also are perfectly suited to care for your little hermit crab soul mate.

Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): Since we are not currently allowed to have lions as pets, a Leo will be happy to dote on a fancy purebred Persian kitty instead. Plus they’ll garner you tons of attention as the star of all the local cat shows.

Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd): A cute fluffy rabbit makes a great companion for you. The two of you share a quirky, neurotic nature, and since their living space is contained, you won’t come home to any surprise messes.

Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd): A little Pomeranian is a wonderful pet for this beauty-loving sign. You will have fun dressing them up in cute little sweaters and toting them around with you everywhere you go.

Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st): Every Scorpio needs a black cat in their lives. They are probably the only creature on Earth who will truly understand and match your mysterious, intense temperament. (Second to a black cat would be a friendly snake of course!)

Sagittarius (November 22nd-Decmber 21st): Sagittarians often feel a deep connection with horses. Much like you, horses are strong, independent, and adventurous. A perfect match!

Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th): A super smart and well trained Border Collie is a great companion for you. You also appreciate the usefulness of having a variety of farm animals, so urban chickens may be a good bet!

Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th): Friendly, fun-loving Labradors are the perfect BFF for you. As an air sign, you also love birds and would get on well with an exotic cockatiel.

Pisces (February 19th-March 20th): A gorgeous Aquarium filled with tropical fish will add beauty and calm energy to a Pisces home. More than any other sign, you will love and understand your flowy little fish friends.
