From claws to paws: the stars on what your next pet should be

Are you considering expanding your family? Do you feel the urge to add a furry, scaly or fluffy friend to the household?

We have the best guide for which animal you should welcome, based on the magic of the stars!

Aquarius (January 20- February 19)

Independence is the name of the game with you, Aquarius! Like you, your pet should be low-maintenance and fairly self-sufficient. Warm your heart with a cold blooded creature like a cute little lizard!


Pisces (February 19- March 20)

Pisces need a pet that’s complex in nature to keep them intrigued, yet they also love something to cuddle on cold evening. Never one to go for something mainstream, pick yourself up a bunny rabbit! Mischievous and full of energy, a bunny is a Pisces best friend.

Aries (March 20- April 19)

A German Shepard is the only animal that will keep up an Aries’s high expectations. I lover of physical challenges, the active Aries needs a companion for running up mountains. Determined in nature, you will also make a great dog trainer, a firm but gentle hand that such an intelligent dog needs.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A home bird by nature, a Taurus loves any animal they can shower with love and attention. And what’s more lovable than a Tea Cup Pig?! You’re guaranteed to fall in love straight away with their cute little snouts and curly tails!

Gemini (May 21-June 19)

A colourful parrot or a cheerful cockatoo make the perfect companion for a Gemini! A natural talker, a Gemini will spend hours teaching a parrot new phrases. A cheerful and airy spirit, the Gemini will love the freedom that the bird symbolises.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The Cancer’s true spirit animal is the cat. Home-loving, cuddly and lover of snacks, the tabby cat is your perfect breed. The Cancer’s caring and sensitive nature also makes them the perfect candidate for adoption.

Leo (July 23- August 22)

Regal in nature, Leo’s love the romantic idea of riding off into the sunset, and what better way to gallop off to your fairytale ending than on the back of noble steed? While it may not be in everyone’s budget, a horse is the perfect pet for a Leo. We can just dream!

Virgo (August 23- September 22)

Lovers of perfectionism, the Virgo admires the Border Collie for their work ethnic and reliability. Flock of sheep or not, a Virgo’s dog will be super well trained and put through their paces. Now, give me the paw…

Libra (September 23- October 22)

Lovers of aesthetic beauty, a Libra’s are all about creating calm home environments. A tank of exotic and colourful fish are perfect for a Libra, the calm meanderings of your underwater friends are exactly the relief needed from everyday life.

Scorpio (October 23- November 21)

All about the mystery, Scorpios are naturally drawn to the secretive nature of the reptile family. Consider a chilled out turtle, what are they thinking? Who knows?

Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)

Filled with energy and lovers of the outdoors, a Husky is the perfect partner for an adventurous Sagittarius! However, Sagittarians love the freedom to take off at the drop of the hat, either acclimatise your pets to moving around early on or make sure you’re properly settled down before committing to a pet.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

A lover of the finer things in life, an Instagram-worthy pooch is the name of the game with you! Consider a Corgi, fluffy, loyal and most importantly- cute AF. If it’s good enough for the queen it’s good enough for you!
