Astrology has a profound effect upon our human world so it also influences the lives of our pets and just as the zodiac is divided up into 12 very different personality types it is perfectly natural that this should extend to animals as well.Astrology plays an important part and role in your pet’s life, be it a cat, a dog, a parrot, a pigeon, a horse,etc..Have you ever wondered why your dog or your cat behaves differently? The answers could be determined by their date of birth and how astrology affects their character.
A homely Cancerian dog is much more likely to prefer curling up by the fire than an adventurous Aries of the same breed who will constantly yearn to explore the great outdoors.And so too with cats. Cats can be hedonists, lazy, friendly, aggressive or timid. All these different traits can be explained by studying the astrological influences that determine their character and behavioural patterns.
You’ll have an easier time in raising your pets if you understand what makes them tick and how their basic behavior will evolve depending on their astrological sign. If you just got a new pet for your home, here’s a great way to know just what to expect out of them and how you should behave to them, so that both of you can get on well with each other.
