BIRTHDAY PUP/PUS OF THE MONTH
Capricorn Month ahead: You can count on action this month! Celestial bodies heavily influence your pet’s sign and inspire positive change. Maybe your pet is finally exiting ‘puppy mode’ or realized your couch is not a scratching post. No matter the pet or the problem this is a month you can welcome positive change and resolution. Your Capricorn critter could try to take control this month, so be consistent with your discipline and commands. Let your baby make new friends this month and you will see the enchanting effects on his lovely little self.
Aquarius Month ahead: You can thank the new Moon this month for reaffirming your bond with your little Aquarian. You may find yourself splurging on extra grooming or new toys and treats. Along with the new Moon, the almighty sun and Mercury the communication planet both enter your pet’s sign to create an electric energy. Use this energy to really enjoy and appreciate the bond ‘petship’ brings. It is easy to get caught up in the daily grind and forget why you got a pet in the first place. Use the planetary energy in your buddy’s sign to re establish or remember the joy you feel thanks to your baby
Pisces Month ahead: The full Moon on the 9th can provide the extra energy you thought your pet had forgotten about. His energy level will return with gusto this month so be prepared to let your Pisces buddy play, play, play! Having a pet is a great way to force you to exercise. With a fresh New Year upon us, it’s a great time to institute new fitness routines. Add an extra walk to your day or let your Scorpio scurry around the park a bit longer. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you give your little buddy plenty of room to run and expend his extra energy.
Aries Month ahead: As planet Mars is retrograde this month, you need to make sure your little Aries doesn’t overexert himself. You may need to force him to slow down and take a few breathes. Although it seems as if your friend has endless energy, they may not be able to stop themselves even if they are exhausted. As a pet parent you must make sure you monitor your buddy and offer water or force them to take a break. It is a great time to socialize with your pet so make sure you save enough of their energy for a night on the town!
Taurus Month ahead: Moon energy can inspire or irritate and this month it can do both. The new Moon visits your pet’s solar 3rd House this month and causes a stir. This is an opportune time to make the most of chew toys, bones or other anxiety relieving apparatus. There is also a plethora of love energy reverberating around the universe now. Venus and Mars, the love duo generates love vibes and pass them on to your Taurus pet. You will be the lucky recipient of this positive feeling. You are your pet’s favorite thing, enjoy the feeling of being number one and return the favor for a love-filled month!
Gemini Month ahead: Your pet’s ruling planet Mercury enhances his ability to undertake something new this month. If you’ve longed to get your pet involved in an activity, the energy of the universe makes this an ideal time. Explore the possibilities in your area and both of you will have an opportunity to spread your social butterfly wings! You little Gemini has the magnetic energy to attract all sorts of interesting and possibly influential personalities. Get out and let them strut their stuff!
Cancer Month ahead: As the full Moon visits your Cancer’s sign on the ninth you may notice they are a bit on edge. Don’t be too concerned as Moon can have this effect. You may want to make a little extra time to cuddle your Cancer cutie pie. Although they may feel unsettled right now, Moon energy signifies beginnings and endings. Even if they are unaware of any change within them, you may notice your pet leaving behind some bad habits and picking up some new, hopefully good ones. You may not want to leave that to chance though, spend some time practicing new behaviors.
Leo Month ahead: As the full Moon sits in your pet’s solar 12th House of inspiration, you may see your little Leo acting out a bit. The Moon’s energy can cause an increase in activity and if your pet doesn’t have the proper outlet, this energy could be destructive. Along with a full Moon, your pet also has a new Moon, the Sun, love planet Venus, communication planet Mercury and romance planet Neptune all in their solar seventh House of love and partnerships making this a month they will definitely feel the love energy. Everyone could use a bit more affection and this month you will sure get it!
Virgo Month ahead: Mars, the action planet sits in your pet’s sign and goes retrograde on the 24th, which can cause them to be easily distracted. It may be a good time to bring along some extra treats on walks or for training sessions. It will require a bit more effort for your pet to focus this month so be prepared to offer some reward for their attention. Your thoughtful Virgo will not be shy in asking for attention this month. Feel free to give them as much attention as they can take.
Libra Month ahead: A new Moon signifies the start of a new phase. Take advantage of this energy to socialize your pet. Our pets are social creatures and need to interact with others of their kind. Socializing your pet is also a great way for you to meet new friends as well! This month also brings lucky planet Jupiter out of its retrograde transit causing a stir of excitement. You may wonder why your pet seems so frisky, don’t worry just blame Jupiter! This is a great time to strengthen the bond your family shares with your pet. Get everyone involved in the care taking experience and all will benefit!
Scorpio Month ahead: For your little Scorpio, this month is all about family. Now that the holidays are over, you pet may wonder why his family is not around as much as they were. He may feel a bit down and lonely. Our job as pet parents is to lift their moods and ensure their happiness. Take a long walk or run through the park. A game of fetch or tug of war usually does the trick. Maybe slide in an extra special dinner or treat to lift his spirits. Remember your pet knows no other family but yours make it the best experience possible for them and you will be richly rewarded in wagging tails, purrs and kisses!
Sagittarius Month Ahead: Others may try this month to offer their opinion on how your life with your pet should be. We all have different experiences with animals and believe different things are appropriate for our pets. If your relationship with your pet is fulfilling and uplifting, don’t worry about what others say or think. You know your pet better than anyone else and are the only one with the authority to discipline him or her. Don’t be afraid to speak up and let those in your life know your pet is just that….yours. Make the best decisions for you and your pet and enjoy the bond you share
