If you’re feeling stuck deciding on the perfect pet to light up your life, why not take a chance and let the stars decide? Just scroll down to your zodiac sign to see which pet might be the best friend for you — astrologically speaking.
Aries (March 21-April 20) — Jack Russell Terrier
Why: Aries are adventurous and full of energy. You’re brimming with enthusiasm and need a pet who can keep up with your fast-paced, GOGOGO lifestyle, like a Jack Russell Terrier.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) — Rabbit
Why: You have seemingly-endless patience. Tauruses are known for being as loving and kind-hearted as they are determined and thoughtful, making you a perfect rabbit owner.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) — Hedgehog
Why: Geminis are intelligent and very witty and very adaptable — making them perfect candidates to own non-traditional pets, like a hedgehog.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) — Hamster
Why: Cancers are emotional creatures, so you need a pet that will be able to handle your sometimes changing moods. Try something low-key like a hamster. Still, Cancers have a lot of love to give and great intuition for what others need, making you an ideal pet owner.
Leo (July 23-August 21) — Parrot
Why: Leos are insanely generous — with both their love and their time, meaning you have what it takes to pet parent a very long-term pet, like a parrot (which can live anywhere from 50 to 95 years, depending on the type). You’re also a super creative spirit, so you need a pet that reflects that.
Virgo (August 22-Sept 23) — Cat
Why: Virgos tend to keep to themselves and even be a little on the shy side, which makes a cat a perfect pet — it will need plenty of alone time, too. You might be a little bit of a perfectionist or over-analyzer from time to time, but your cat won’t mind.
Libra (Sept. 24-Oct. 23) — Guinea Pig
Why: Libras are the epitome of laidback. Your easygoing, peaceful nature makes you a perfect fit to spend your days with a Guinea Pig, the chillest of all small furry pets.
Scorpio (Oct. 24- Nov. 22) — Border Collie
Why: Scorpios are a force to be reckoned with. You’re powerful and passionate and need a pet that can keep up with you as you power through achieving all those lofty goals. A Border Collie is perfect.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 22) — Betta Fish
Why: Sagittariuses love their freedom, so they need a pet that won’t tie them down. Betta Fish are resilient and independent, just like Sags. Plus, they don’t need constant care, so if life takes you on a (short) spontaneous adventure, your Betta will be fine alone.
Capricorn (Dec. 23-Jan. 20) — Turtle
Why: Capricorns are known for being very practical and careful and even, at times, a little reserved. A pet that won’t rock the boat, like a turtle, is a great fit for the Capricorn way of life.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 19)
Why: If you’re an Aquarius, you need a pet that’s as friendly and loyal as you are, and that can mean only one thing: DOGS. Specifically, a Golden Retriever is your ideal pet soulmate.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Rescue Animal

Why: Pisces are sensitive and compassionate and always ready to put others first and use their time to do good. That makes a rescue animal the perfect pet for a Pisces. Whether you rescue an adorable mutt or a cuddly kitten, opening your home to an animal who is truly in need will bring you the most joy of all.
