The sun has entered friendly, devoted, and eccentric Aquarius, making this an incredibly exciting time to be a dog. In fact, Aquarius energy exemplifies doghood in so many ways. Like Aquarius, our canine friends are admired for staying loyal to their pack, doing what’s best for others, and following the beat of their own drum. But don’t let me simplify what being a dog is all about because every dog has their own unique astrological paw print. Whether you’re lucky enough to know your dog’s birthday or you know your dog well enough to make an intuitive guess as to what their zodiac sign might be, astrology can tell you a whole lot about what your furry friend may be going through.
If the stars have an effect on our lives, why wouldn’t they make just as big of an impact on your pup’s? Even if you’re not totally convinced, astrology is fun and so is your dog! Why wouldn’t the two mix? Here’s last week’s dog horoscope in case you forgot to check it out. This week is full of transitions and it’s only going to get better and better. Let the week of January 20 to 26 set your dog off on a new adventure.
With that bright and adorable smile on your face, who could resist you? Let that tongue hang loose as you pant with excitement because you’re making so many new friends this week, Aries! You’re befriending the skittish neighborhood cat who sunbathes on cars, the inquisitive squirrel who leaps across cable wires, and the little kid across the street who wishes they had a dog exactly like you. There’s no reason you can’t make friends with everyone, regardless of how different of a species they may be. You’re learning that we all have so much in common and there’s no reason we can’t all get along.

You are all about making an entrance and working toward your dreams. After all, you’re ruled by Venus — planet of money and luxury — and you have no problem working like a dog if it means you’re getting paid by the end of the day. Set a goal this week, Taurus! Do you want to earn more treats than ever? Do you want to prove that you deserve an extra trip to the dog park? Get in the game and stay disciplined. Prove to your owner that you’re willing to be on your best behavior and there’s no way you won’t be rewarded for your efforts. The universe is most certainly throwing you a bone.

There’s nothing you love more than a flexible itinerary, Gemini. Why not let your nose lead you somewhere you’ve never been before? If you’re on a walk with your human and you smell something that entices you, drag them along for the ride. Maybe you’ll discover a beautiful trail that leads to an adventure. Perhaps you’ll stumble upon a new friend from a street that’s not part of your usual route. Regardless of what you decide to do, make sure you try something totally different this week. You hate monotony and you loathe the idea that old dogs can’t learn new tricks. Be a living example of why that couldn’t be further from the truth!

Every dog has their day, Cancer. If you’re feeling a little more emotional than usual, there’s no reason to feel bad about yourself. Being a dog is a lot of pressure! Society expects dogs to constantly be obedient, friendly, and enthusiastic about every little thing. How unrealistic is that? Let down your guard and don’t let these expectations drag you down. You’re allowed to feel exactly how you feel. If you’d rather act more like a cat, go for it. Unlike dogs, cats have no issue with being independent, indifferent, and lazy. Get inspired by your feline counterpart because they don’t care what anyone thinks. Neither should you!

Sashay that tail of yours, bat your irresistible eyes, and be on your best flirt game when you make your way to the dog park. You know there’s nothing you love more than romance. You are a Leo after all! This week, you might be the star of your own furry romantic comedy.

Dogs get cravings and sometimes those cravings are ridiculously unhealthy. You may be the zodiac sign of health and cleanliness, Virgo, but that doesn’t stop you from being a dog! If you’re feeling tempted to rummage through the trash and munch on your human’s leftover birthday cake, think twice before you go there. That icing may taste phenomenal, but don’t you remember how sick you felt last time? Oh, and let’s not even get started on the time you ate a hole through your human’s tire swing. This week, do your best to stick to a wholesome diet of healthy dog food and the occasional dog treat. No birthday cake or tire swings for you.

Did you know humans aren’t the only species that can be creative? This week, it’s time to tap into your inner artist and create something that really speaks to you. In the mood to write an emotional poem about your favorite ball? Feel like painting a landscape of your favorite place at the dog park to pee and mark your territory? Let no one stop you. Who says dogs can’t create a masterpiece? If any dog is going to be the next creative genius, it’s you, Libra. Just call yourself Leonardo da Dogci or Edgar Allan Pup, because your art could be enjoyed by generations of dogs to come.

You might not be in the mood for a wild and rugged adventure this week and that’s perfectly OK, Scorpio. Instead of exploring the great outdoors and getting your paws dirty, you might prefer watching a movie about a dog who explores the great outdoors and gets their paws dirty. Who says that’s not just as thrilling? Spend this week curling up at your human’s feet, munching on your favorite brand of jerky, and doing a little work around the house. Sometimes, even a dog needs to catch a break! Besides, it’s cold outside and you’ll look for any excuse not to wear those ridiculous puppy boots your human always puts on you during your long wintertime walks.

You might get told to “shush” when you’re barking up a storm, but this week, you have some pretty fascinating things to say and everyone’s ears are perking up whenever you speak. Gather with your fellow dog-tellectuals and discuss the latest puppy politics, Sagittarius. You’ve got so many feelings about the gentrification of your favorite dog parks, the latest eco-friendly dog toys on the market, and whether “healthy” dog food brands are really as healthy as they claim. Don’t be afraid of sharing your wisdom and discussing your opinions on important matters, because you’re so much smarter than you think!

You’ve worked super hard to get to where you’re at, Capricorn. You earned every single one of those doggie toys, doggie treats, and trips to the doggie park. However, you do have the tendency to get a little possessive of your belongings. Sharing is caring, Capricorn! Why not let your fellow canine friends play with your toys? Why not share some of those treats? I know, I know. You worked hard for those things, why can’t they? Well, think about the times when you didn’t have all those things. Wouldn’t you have been so happy if another dog shared with you? Put your best paw forward and set a shining example of how generous a dog should be.

You’re not a puppy anymore, Aquarius. You’re learning that peeing in the house is not ideal, that tearing your human’s pillow to shreds does not get the desired result, and that if you listen to what your human tells you, you’ll always make them happy. Time to grow up, Aquarius. You might only be a few years old, but in doggie years, that’s much older! You’re making so many strides lately and you’re projecting the energy of a dog who really knows what they’re doing. Growing up can be a strange process, but as long as you work on becoming the best dog you can be, you’re headed in the right direction.

You’re a dreamer, Pisces. After all, you were born under the zodiac sign of magic, spirituality, and creativity. In fact, there are times when your dreams are so vivid that you get it mixed up with real life! This week, you might feel a little spaced out. Just make sure you watch where you’re going! If you start daydreaming about what it would be like to chase the end of a rainbow, you might run into a pole during your walk. Your human will laugh and think you’re hilariously clumsy, but you’ll secretly feel a little embarrassed. Dreaming is wonderful, but you should also snap out of it and pay attention to the task at hand.
