Has your dog been whimpering and whining? Have they been digging through your garbage, hoping to stumble upon your leftovers? Have they been relentlessly chewing on their foot? It’s a dark and intense time in astrology and Capricorn season can certainly manifest itself as a whole lot of weight on your puppy’s shoulders. Luckily, the dog days are almost over. This week, Venus enters dreamy and affectionate Pisces, encouraging your dog to tap into their inner romantic and ask for a few extra cuddles. Mercury also enters friendly and sociable Aquarius, making this a great time for a few extra trips to the dog park! Things are starting to lighten up around here and this week, your dog is in the mood for something exciting and new.
An insightful and beautifully written horoscope can make a world of a difference for a human. Why not read into what the stars have in store for your pup? After all, we all live in the same solar system and we’re all being affected by the same planets. Sometimes, astrology can be ridiculously spot on! Check out last week’s dog horoscope to see if it came true. While you’re at it, prepare for magic to inspire your mongrel during the week of January 13 to 19, because their tail is wagging already:
You’re usually the most energetic dog in the room, Aries. Seriously, your human can’t even sleep in on a Sunday because you’re dragging the leash into their bed and begging for a walk the moment the sun rises. But, who can blame you? Your zodiac sign is ruled by action-oriented Mars, after all. You’re so used to keeping yourself busy that taking a chill pill is definitely not your strong suit. The fact that you’ve been feeling a little daydreamy and slow to get a move on lately might be throwing you for a loop. Don’t be so hard on yourself for needing to rest. You’re no less of a dog just because you feel like sleeping instead of playing fetch!

Let’s be honest, Taurus. For all intents and purposes, you’re actually pretty introverted for a dog. People may think dogs are naturally hyper and always aiming to please, but they’ve clearly never met you. When plans you’ve made with other dogs at the park get canceled, you’re secretly overjoyed. It means you get your human all to yourself and you get to do your own thing! However, this week, you’ll be surprised by just how social you feel. You’re in the mood to sniff every dog’s butt, chase some tails, and even engage in a few barking matches. Hey, maybe you’re not so introverted after all!

You’ve been an emotional dog lately, Gemini. Who’d have thought? Geminis may seem happy-go-lucky and unaffected by life’s woes, but Geminis (especially Gemini dogs, of course) have a big heart underneath that sunny disposition. Lately, you’ve been learning that it’s OK to whimper when you’re upset, cling on to your human, and bat your pretty little puppy dog eyes to get some extra attention. You’re realizing that being honest about your feelings can make the dog days a little brighter. But there’s so many exciting things to do and you can’t waste anymore time being blue! You’re ready to come out of your shell and make everyone laugh with your talent for playing dead and high-fiving your human.

Feeling a bit stubborn, Cancer? You’ve been resisting change and it shows. You can only use the excuse that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks so many times before it starts to get, well, old! I mean, haven’t you seen “Dog Whisperer”? That guy Cesar Millan completely debunks all those stereotypes about old dogs. I know, I know — it’s tempting to keep up with your routine of rummaging through garbage, rolling around in your favorite patch of dirt, and eating the rest of your human’s dessert when they’re not paying attention. But you know you’re better than that. Time to step up to the plate and dedicate yourself to self-improvement. I bet you’ll learn so many new tricks before you know it.

You may be a confident, adorable, and larger-than-life Leo, but that doesn’t mean you don’t get insecure from time to time. Are you comparing yourself to that dog across the street? Even though you’re both of the canine variety, that doesn’t mean you’re anything alike. There’s no point in comparing apples to oranges (or rather, labs to shepherds). That dog might be able to outrun you at the park, but they definitely can’t dance like you do. Don’t forget that every dog brings something unique to the table! It may be a dog-eat-dog world out there, but when it comes to dogs and all their many amazing qualities, it’s certainly not a competition. (But if it were, you’d be number 1!)

You’re working like a dog, Virgo. Everyone knows your zodiac sign is famous for intelligence, organizational skills, and discipline. It’s a big reason why you were the first dog in the neighborhood to be housebroken! Now, it’s time to get your head back in the game and focus on your dog-related pursuits (such as sharpening your talent for fetching your human’s mail and digging a perfectly symmetrical hole in the backyard). However, because your methods are so precise, it may come at the cost of your enthusiasm. Don’t forget to have fun as you work hard! Life is short and you shouldn’t spend it with your tail between your legs.

You’ve been such a homebody lately, Libra. You’re a natural charmer and socialite of a dog if there ever was one! The fact that you’ve been more interested in curling up by the fire and gnawing on a toy than making an entrance at all the latest puppy parties has got everyone wondering where you are. Luckily, you’re back and better than ever. You’ve been dreaming of running along the beach, dipping your paws in some paint, and dancing on those elegant hind legs of yours. Get out of the dog house and start accumulating experiences that you’ll remember forever. The world can’t wait to pet you!

There’s no dog more passionate than you are, Scorpio. It’s like you’re hardwired for falling in love! You know just how to butter a human up and leave them completely obsessed with you. Seriously, your human has started questioning whether their friends actually want to hang out with them and aren’t simply looking for an excuse to see you. Even though there’s no greater feeling than being adored, you do have the tendency to get a little possessive of your loved ones. Just because your human is petting another dog does not mean they like them more than they like you. Put those teeth away! There’s no need for doggie dramatics. (Unless your human DOES like that dog better than you…)

You’re the first dog to answer the call to adventure, Sagittarius. After all, you were born under the zodiac sign of spontaneity! I bet you’re always searching for a way to escape the confines of your home and run free. There’s simply a wild streak coursing through you, never to be tamed. While your courageous nature is admirable, you’re learning that stability is just as important as adventure. Even though you dream of traversing the great unknown, you know you’d eventually get hungry, start dreaming of your cozy dog bed, and of course, you’d miss your human way too much. You’ve got a good thing going, why spoil it by running off? Ask your human to take you on an exciting hike (while you wear a sturdy leash) instead. That should satisfy your hunger for adventure!

You’re a dog with way too much on your mind this week, Capricorn. It’s important to remember that you’re probably not seeing things too rationally at the moment. The UPS delivery person is not here to break into the house and steal everyone you love. Your human is not moving away and never coming back just because they pulled out their luggage. Just because another dog is visiting for the weekend does not mean you’re being replaced! Practice repeating some paw-sitive affirmations instead. Take a deep breath and tell yourself “I am safe. I am a good dog. I am worthy of treats,” and watch how your anxiety dissipates. Let sleeping dogs lie, Capricorn.

It’s time to beg your human to take you shopping, Aquarius. A trip to the luxury pet store will satisfy all your desires to spend! Not only will you attract so much attention as you strut through the aisles, but your human will remember just how adorable you are when you’re taken out in public (and sometimes they need reminding!). They might even adorn you with a sparkling new collar or purchase you a package of fancy artisanal dog treats. You’re inspired to tap into your inner “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” and embrace your bougie side. But, if you’re feeling frugal at the moment, you need to know that you can be just as fashion-forward without forcing your human to shell out so much cash. Just take your claws to the wardrobe for a punk rock chic look.

You’re feeling yourself, Pisces. Even though dogs can’t recognize their own reflection in the mirror, you know you’re looking super adorable lately. Your fur is silky and shining, your posture is elegant, and your tail is wagging with some extra pizzazz. When you’re so attractive to everyone, you have to be wary of energy vampires. All those dogs you meet on your walk be crowding around you and making you feel like the most popular pup in the park, but are they really your friends? Or are they just hoping to steal some of your light? Put up some healthy boundaries and bark when you feel like you’re being taken advantage of.
