If you believe dogs are people too, then you have definitely come to the right place. Not only are dogs complex, emotional creatures with personalities of their own, but they even have a zodiac sign. This means your dog has — you guessed it — a horoscope!
I know the excitement of this news may come as a shocker, but in your dog’s March 23 to March 29 weekly horoscope, they even have the opportunity to become the best dog they can possibly be. Go ahead, give them a good belly rub and tell them how much you adore them. After all, there’s a new moon in confident and competitive Aries this week, and the compliments will certainly get their tail wagging. Aries is feisty, energetic, and motivated too, so don’t be surprised if your dog is jumping at every opportunity to prove just how amazing they are. The new moon in Aries is here and every dog wants to be an alpha. Just because the world may be on lockdown does not mean your dog has nothing to be excited about!
Feel free to check out last week’s dog horoscope if you’re wondering what led up to this powerful moment. But if you’re just as much of a go-getter as an Aries, then you know there’s no time to waste:
Pull yourself up by your leash-straps, Aries. The world may be a scary place at the moment, but there’s no reason for you to be such a Debbie dogger. Take a deep breath, puff up that strong chest of yours, and bark like the wolf you are. You’re not supposed to be the follower in the pack. You were born to be the leader, and you know it! This week, it’s up to you to start believing in yourself, so repeat some positive affirmations when you wake up in the morning, such as “I am a powerful puppy, hear me roar!” and watch how much your attitude changes for the better. You’re an Aries! That means you are one fearsome pup.

Your human probably assumes there’s nothing going on in that little canine brain of yours besides bacon jerky, squeaky toys, cuddles, and trees that smell like other dog’s pee. Little do they know, you’re thinking about some very complex things and asking some philosophical questions, such as “Why do dogs howl at the moon?” And “Why does the sound of turkey kibble hitting the bowl make my mouth water?” This is a beautiful week to start journaling your doggie thoughts, Taurus. You might just strike gold as you dig through the dirt of your psyche. Dip your paw in some ink and jot down your stream of consciousness because you are paw-sitively genius. Start recognizing it!

Since everyone’s practicing social distancing, you’re probably really missing all your friends from the dog park. You’re a Gemini, after all! Geminis are famous for being one of the most extroverted and social signs in all the zodiac. While you can’t sniff other dog butts at the moment, you can come up with new ways to keep the puppy party going. Why not schedule some group FaceTime sessions? You might not be able to rough house with and lick all your furry friends from the neighborhood, but at least you can see them and feel comforted by the sound of their barks through the screen. The canine social climate depends on you!

The career world may be coming to a halt but that doesn’t mean you have to, Cancer. Let’s face it! A dog’s best opportunity to make a name for themselves in this day and age is via social media. This week, you should ask your human to really help you spruce up your pet Instagram page. Throw on some videos of you barking “I love you,” chasing your tail around in circles, and cuddling (forcefully) next to the cat. You know your followers eat that type of content right up! By the end of the week, your follower count will skyrocket and you’ll be famous. I bet you’ll even give Snoopy a run for his money!

You’re in the mood to be an adventure dog, Leo. Unfortunately, the world is slowing down at the moment, and you might not be able to live out your dream of climbing steep mountains, raiding ancient temples, and discovering hidden lands. While this is not the time to try to be the canine form of Indiana Jones, it’s the paw-fect time for you to marathon every classic dog adventure movie out there. Satiate your hunger for an exciting quest by streaming “Bolt,” “Homeward Bound,” “Snow Dogs,” “101 Dalmations,” and more! There are more ways than one to have an adventure, Leo. Now’s the time for an adventure in the comfort of your own home.

Chin up, Virgo. You might be whimpering way more often than usual because even dogs get the blues. I know everyone expects dogs to be perpetually panting with excitement, always waiting for their human by the front door, and begging for belly rubs all day long. But if you aren’t living up to these difficult expectations at the moment, there’s no need to be hard on yourself. Dogs are super emotional creatures and lately, the world has got you down. However, you don’t have to hole up in your dog house all by yourself! Your human would love to give you some love during this trying time, so why not open your heart to a well-deserved snuggle?

Since you’re being encouraged to practice social distancing and stay at home, you and the cat are officially stuck with each other. Everyone knows cats and dogs aren’t famous for getting along. You hate the way the cat always steals your bed and whacks you in the face when you get to close. The cat hates the way your mouth is always hanging wide open and the way you bark whenever someone knocks on the door. Let’s face it, Libra. The disgust is mutual! But now’s not the time to push each other away. You’re the only buddies you guys have at the moment. Why not set aside your differences and engage in a cross-species friendship?

The world is on lockdown and you’ve probably been spending way more time at home than you’re accustomed to, Scorpio. While your human can’t take you on as many exciting excursions outdoors at the moment, you can be a more paw-ductive dog with all this extra time! Instead of wasting time taking far too many naps and staring at your food bowl, waiting for it to fill up with kibble, why not make better use of your schedule? You now have all the time in the world to finally write that “Lady and the Tramp” fanfiction or organize all of your doggie treats by taste and texture. Set up that to-do list and get to work!

The sun is in your fifth house of passion and romance, Sagittarius, which means you’re definitely in the ~mood for loving~. However, while I don’t mean to put a pin in your squeaky toy, it is important that you practice social distancing right now. You can’t just get sniff every butt you meet! Precautions are necessary, so stop acting like you aren’t neutered or spayed. Instead of playing the field, why not get to know another dog instead? Set up a Skype date where you can bark about the latest viral dog video or your favorite forbidden human food. This lockdown won’t last fur-ever!

Hooray! Your human’s job has officially decided they will be working from home for the next few weeks. You know what that means! You get to spend way more time with your human than you ever did before. I bet you’re jumping up on your hind-legs just thinking about it, aren’t you, Capricorn? However, you might be a little bit confused as to why your human seems bummed out. They might be upset they had to cancel their spring break vacation, but you’re just happy you get to hang out with them instead of stay in an animal inn for a week! Luckily, your human has you to cheer them up. Really do your best to be extra cute, extra funny, and extra adorable this week. Your human could use your love at the moment.

You have the tendency to hole up in your dog house and do your own thing, Aquarius. Now that this lockdown is underway, you’re probably forgetting to reply to your wolf pack’s group texts and answer their FaceTime calls. This week, you should work on being more responsive! Other dogs get the blues when you leave them on “read,” so tap your phone screen with that paw of yours and send out a few messages. Just because you have to practice social distancing doesn’t mean you should forget to reply. I know it’s ruff keeping up with all these lines of communication, but you need your friends and they need you!

All the other dogs are rushing to the grocery stores to snag all the items they need, Pisces. They’re playing games of tug-o-war over the bag of turkey treats and chasing each other around for the one can of beef pâté left, which is probably making you feel so overwhelmed. Now’s not the time to be greedy. It’s up to you to lead the pack toward generosity! Set a fine example by sharing your items with those who need it. When one dog does something positive, the next dog follows suit. Soon, you’ll have a full-blown chain reaction of good doggie deeds! The world is depending on your big ol’ heart and you deserve a belly rub for it.
