Gemini: An Animal Lover That Needs Engaging Pets

As the Mutable Air sign, Gemini is a thinker, and a quick thinker at that. Gemini has the double edged sword of the Twins, and this often makes them unpredictable. This is largely due to their mutable nature, but the intelligence of Gemini can not be mistaken. Thus, Gemini needs a pet that can match their wit, and keep them engaged.

Cancer: Pets That Connect to An Emotional Side

Cancer is the Cardinal Water sign and as such, the domestic center when it comes to the zodiac signs. Cancer is always very busy making sure the homefront is in tip top shape, and are usually found in the kitchen. Cancer isn't too fussy when it comes to animals, but they do have a tendency to be allergic. Smaller animals that cater to their emotional needs are perfect for the Cardinal Water sign.

Leo: A Fiery Sign Who Seeks Luxurious Pets

Leo is the Fixed Fire sign and this makes them very loyal and abundantly energetic. Leo is also ruled by the Sun, and thus loves everything beautiful and glorious. An animal that caters to Leo’s vanity will be one cherished for all of time. However, one that feeds Leo’s inner lion is one that will also stoke the fires of this Fixed Fire sign.

Virgo: Minimal Mess Pets Are the Best Match

Virgo is the Mutable Earth sign, and has a tendency to err on the fussy side. Virgo is the clean freak of the zodiac, and of all signs, cannot handle clutter or chaos. Animals with a tendency to misbehave or create havoc are not the kind Virgo enjoys. Virgo also has a tendency to be allergic, a trait that is part of their picky personality. There are few pets Virgo will fall in love with, but once they do, that lucky animal will have a friend for life with this loyal and true zodiac sign.

Libra: Prefers Pets That Can Get Along with Everyone

Libra is the Cardinal Air sign ruled by Venus, and as such, Libra loves all things beautiful and luxurious. Libra is the sign of partnerships, so it makes sense that most have pets because they love socialization and having companionship from all species on Earth. The best pet for Libra is one that will get along with everybody they bring into their circle. Smaller and low maintenance pets pair best with Libra than do larger, more extravagant pets.

Scorpio: Pets That Enjoy Bonding Are Perfect

As the Fixed Water sign, Scorpio is one of the most psychic zodiac signs. As such, Scorpio likes animals they can "communicate" with. No matter what partner Scorpio takes on in life, be that a furry friend or a soul mate, Scorpio is always all in. As such, the emotional connection between Scorpio and their pets is very important. Scorpio thus leans towards more psychically inclined animals with a highly evolved spiritual aura - and Scorpio can spot that better than anyone.

Sagittarius: A Wanderer Who Needs a Self-Sufficient Pet

Sagittarius is the Mutable Fire sign of the zodiac, also known as the wanderer. Typically Sagittarius is the least pet friendly of the zodiac signs for this very reason. Something that requires constant home care or walking is not going to do well with this sign who dislikes feeling tied down.

Sag prefers a self-sufficient pet - if they choose to take one in at all. If you’re an Archer looking for a pet, you’ll be best served by something small. Conversely, if you have the resources to hire someone to take care of your pet when you’re out wandering the world, finding one that suits your personality is a bit easier.

Capricorn: Likes to Have a Helping Hand with Pets

As the Cardinal Earth sign, Capricorn is known to be the most patient and responsible of all of the zodiac signs. Thus, they’re good with pretty much any pet, so long as they have help caring for it. Capricorn is a workaholic, so a pet that needs to be let out every hour may not be the best option. Capricorn can usually afford to hire someone to help out, but may be better served finding a pet that doesn't require so much attention.

Aquarius: Highly Intelligent Pets Make the Perfect Match

As the Fixed Air sign ruled by Uranus, Aquarius is highly intelligent and a little bit out of the box. As such, pet compatibility for Aquarius will rely on these factors: intelligence, and quirkiness. Aquarius has a big picture view of life, and are philosophical by nature. There’s no species on Earth altruistic Aquarius doesn't like, but there are a few that will capture their hearts and minds.

Pisces: An Emotional Sign That Needs Understanding Pets
