March Pet Horoscope
Veterinarian Reviewed on March 4, 2009 by Dr. Janice Huntingford
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Those pets that are born under the sign of Aries may now be ready for a change and could even stop eating their favorite treat. They could also be more willing to try something new, such as a new food or treat. Even taking their medicine will be easier! Since they are so open to experiencing new things, now would be a good time to give them a bath, especially if your Aries pet is a Cat.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Pets that are born under the sign of Taurus are going to come across to their owners as a bit grumpy and irritable. This is due to the fact that the alignment of the planets in March is actually encouraging these Taurean pets to define their role within their family. So, it is best if you give your pet a job to do instead. Help them define their family role.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
This month sees Gemini pets becoming very bold with an attitude of ‘What is Yours is Actually Mine’. Watch out for sneaky cat paws trying to steal your food right off of your plate, and warm dog bodies taking up the whole couch! But don’t despair; this attitude will dissipate by month’s end.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23)
Do you have an indoor cat? If so, this month they may appear to have cabin fever. Your dog may even prefer to spend as much time outside as possible, refusing to come in when you call him. The best way to help your pets through this month is to provide them with extra exercise and playtime to help them feel healthy and happy.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Your Leo pet will be most affected by the moon’s cycle this month and will appear more lustful than ever. You can try to keep your pet’s mind out of the gutter by giving them additional exercise or playtime. Buying them a new toy might also do the trick.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Virgo pets will become much more needy this month and will do everything that they can to get as much as attention from you as possible. Give in to their needs and lavish them with attention by brushing them and pampering them. Your Virgo pet will return the favor and give you many wet doggy kisses in return.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Although it will appear in March as if Libra pets are on some kind of mission and will play much harder than usual, they will also be more prone to getting run down. Immediately treat a sneeze as if it were a cold.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Scorpio pets love to play and fool around this March. Humor them by giving them lots of tummy rubs and tickling them. This is a good time to teach a new trick to your old dog!
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 22)
This is the perfect time to buy your Sagittarius pet a new bed, blanket or even a new food dish. Perhaps shopping for a new sweater for your dog would be a fun activity to do together? You certainly won’t see your cat straying from home until the planets realign next month.
CAPRICORN (December 23 – January 20)
In March your Capricorn pet may cause a lot of stress for you. Your Capricorn pet will be rather feisty this month and will try to see just how far they can go before pushing your buttons too far. Screaming at your pet will not change their behavior. Instead give them something constructive to do or give them a new toy to chew on or bat around.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Aquarius pets will have an unending appetite this month and will seem as if they are constantly hungry. This is due to a growth spurt that they will experience this month. The best way to deal with this is to feed your pet smaller food portions more frequently throughout the day. This will help to keep their weight in check as well.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
This the month that the Pisces pet needs to be the center of attention. So help them out by teaching them new tricks and lavish them with praise. This is their month to shine in the limelight; all they want is to know that they are your most beloved pet in the whole world.
