Say goodbye to 2019 and woof to a brand new decade! Believe it or not, your doggie’s making New Year’s resolutions too. Like humans, those resolutions are just as hard to keep if you’re of the canine variety. Luckily, the planets are on your pup’s side as they make their transition into 2020. This week, planner Mercury connects with radical Uranus and positive Jupiter, which means a bright idea might just be forming in your dog’s head. The year 2020 might just finally be the time they sign up for doggie college and get a degree in playing fetch. It could even be the year they lead a revolution, demanding a dog’s inalienable right to lounge on their human’s bed whenever they feel like it. Time will tell, but your dog is headed for greatness one way or another.
Pluto is more than just the name of a planet. It’s also the name of Mickey Mouse’s dog! The correlation between dogs and astrology couldn’t be more obvious, am I right? But seriously, if the cosmos have an effect on our lives, they have to have an influence on your dog’s too. Check out last week’s dog horoscope if you’re in the mood for more astro-canine content. In the meantime, the week of December 30 to January is bound to be a wild ride for all dogs everywhere:
When you enter a room, everyone notices. You’re an Aries, after all! You crash-land into people’s hearts and no one can deny you want you want. This is bound to be a very lucrative week for you, Aries. Have you ever thought about starting a company? Something with a ring to it, like “Trixie’s Tasty Treats” or “Fluffy’s Faux Fur.” Get in touch with your business-savvy side and give the “Wolf” of Wall street a run for their money! Baby, you deserve to be the CEO (Canine Executive Officer, of course), as you’ve always been a very smart dog.

Quit hiding in the shadows, Taurus. I know you value stability and it’s difficult for you to embrace change, but you’re here to make a name for yourself. You think Lassie got to be a famous super dog by playing it safe? You think Bolto let fear stand in the way of his great adventure? It’s time to take a chance, because you’re missing out on so many opportunities by rolling around on your back all day. Consider the possibility that you’re definitely no ordinary pup. You’re a majestic mongrel and you’re here to make history!

You’re social, charming, and a constant source of entertainment, Gemini. You’re that dog everyone falls in love with instantly and you have no enemies to speak of (well, except the cat, maybe). But sometimes, the pressure to please everyone can get you down. Everyone acts like dogs are always jolly and walking on sunshine. Be yourself, Gemini. You’re allowed to be a moody pup every once in a while! If you feel like howling at the moon, listening to My Chemical Romance, and being a bit emo, go for it.

You’re a sensitive and sweet Cancer, which means people probably reduce your personality to being nothing more than cute and cuddly. However, this week, you’re in the mood to change the world. Just call yourself Elizabeth Wolfen or Bernie Pawders because you might as well run for doggie office! A vote for you is a vote for pups everywhere, and you won’t stop barking until the humans hear your message. Believe in yourself, Cancer. You’re the leader of the pack and every dog is inspired by you.

You know you love being on stage. Hearing the words “good dog!” is like music to your ears. You are a Leo after all! All eyes are on you this week. The world is singing praises in your direction and handing you treats like there’s no tomorrow. Don’t get carried away with all this attention though. Instead, let it inspire you to work even harder. Want to be a doggie superstar? Want to be the favorite dog in the whole house? No matter how big or small the dream or the dog, you have the talent to do it. Just match that talent with some good old-fashioned dog work.

You’re such a well-behaved dog, Virgo, even if you find it a bit hard to stray from your routine. However, just because you’re a little bit of a control freak doesn’t mean you don’t enjoy a pleasant surprise every now and then. Love is in the air — you can smell it. You’ve always had a nose for these things. So why not dig a couple of flowers out (preferably not from your human’s garden) and tell the pooch next door how you really feel. It’s your New Year’s resolution to fall in love and you’re certainly not failing this year.

Your family needs you this week, Libra. Give your humans some extra licks and let them know just how much they matter to you. Why not give back to the hand that gives (read: feeds) so much to you? Maybe this is a great time to wear that ridiculous sweater your human bought you with pride. You know it makes your human smile to see you dressed so stylishly. Maybe you could even play dead like you used to in the old days! It always makes your human laugh. Never underestimate the puppy love you spread into everyone’s hearts. You can make a difference.

You might just stumble upon an unexpected friend this week, Scorpio. You are a deep, emotional, and passionate dog. It’s no wonder your circle of trust is so small. Being in your pack is a big deal. Set aside your judgments about the cat, because you may find yourself chasing each other’s tails and becoming so much closer in the process. You think that just because they meow and you woof that you don’t have a lot in common? It’s time to extend that paw of yours and let a beautiful, cross-species friendship begin. Google translate helps.

Take a moment to envision the type of dog you’d like to be, Sagittarius. You love being spontaneous and free, but sometimes this comes at the expense of getting anything done. You’ve got a ton on your to-do list, if you’re willing to put paw to paper and write it down. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of becoming a yogi and mastering your downward facing dog. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to learn every lyric to the songs in “All Dogs Go To Heaven.” Whatever inspires you to work harder, get off your doggie behind and do it!

You’re the most ambitious dog in all the zodiac. When a canine is a Capricorn, nothing stops them from achieving their dreams. However, your tunnel vision on your goals can make you forget to enjoy the process. How can you introduce more creativity into your daily dog life? Don’t worry about painstakingly painting the next masterpiece. Instead, dip those paws into a bucket of paint and go wild, like Jackson Puplock! Just make sure to keep the walls clean, Capricorn pup! You know you hate disappointing your human.

Do you believe in magic? Of course you do. You’re an Aquarius, and you’re always looking for a way to spice up your perspective on life. Have you ever tried really hard to speak to your human telepathically? Have you ever thought of rolling around in some fairy dust and flying away? This week, there’s magic surrounding you, so don’t you dare bark yourself out of believing in it. You might just be a whole new species of dog! A dog that has supernatural abilities, of course. If it’s true for anyone, it’s probably true for you.

You’re in a talkative mood this week, Pisces. If you find yourself barking at the tiniest sound outside and frustrating your human, don’t be too hard on yourself. You’ve simply got so much to say! Instead of howling at anything and everything, express yourself more directly. Why not write the next “Call of the Wild” or give the next Doggysburg Address? Your words are awe-inspiring and you are a dog who’s name they will not forget.
