Dog-o-scopes for the week of April 5th
The universe has cast upon us a worthless spell that we will have to deal with “for now.” We will come out stronger and hopefully speaking numerous languages (Duolingo ) but until then here are your dogs horoscopes!
Aries- March 21 – April 19
The Ram - because of Aries’ brave, tenacious ability to climb to the top of the mountain, no matter what.
You might understand instinctively, even if not rationally, that contained within the world’s chaos is the potential for action, for unimagined freedom. You might understand instinctively, even if not rationally, that endings always also mark beginnings. And beginnings, where the unknown world stretches out before you, are where you truly thrive. Even if you’re grieving at the loss of normality, you don’t have to be incapacitated by despair. You can remember that real change is possible, and that the future is still wide open, and that your powers aren’t weakening, but rather growing ever stronger, ever brighter.
You could feel compelled to make a bold move on Tuesday. On Saturday, wellness-minded Mercury creates a sextile with career-ruling Saturn. Look for moments of inspiration.
Taurus- April 20 – May 20
The Bull - because of their resilience and stubbornness! And, like a bull, they can be both frighteningly fierce or serenely gentle.
It can be comforting, sometimes, to imagine that you have more control over the world than you really do, to tell yourself that by holding steady and doing the right thing, you can stave off uncertainty. This week, though, it might be better to accept just how little control we really have. And once you accept that there are things you cannot change, you’ll be better off.
Your crew and family are realizing that you are the only one who can be counted on - But you’ve always known! Take a moment to pause on Tuesday while spiritual Mars forms a square against Uranus. As these powerful planets clash against each other, you may feel tempted to rush changes in order to move forward. Resist the urge. The human needs space as well. Embrace an attitude of abundance starting Saturday, as treat seekingMercury enters ambitious Aries. You have the power to accomplish anything you set your mind to during this active transit.
Gemini- May 21 – June 20
The Twins - because of their duality, versatility and ability to talk twice as fast and say twice as much as everyone else.
Learn to trust yourself, Gemini. Collect your thoughts on Tuesday when ruling Mercury creates a sextile with regimented Pluto in retrograde. Embrace your flexible nature- Literally STRETCH IT OUT! . You’re starting to change up your entire schedule, creating new possibilities for your well-being. You’re ready to make some significant changes to your space starting Saturday, when domestic-ruling Mercury speeds into enthusiastic Aries. Maybe move that bed by the window?
Just because you’re generally comfortable with change, that doesn’t mean you have to expect yourself to be comfortable with change on this scale, massive and relentless. Just because you’re adaptable, that doesn’t mean you have to be willing to adapt to intolerable conditions, or to let go of everything you love. It’s easy to act as though your sweet flexibility can serve as an escape hatch from emotions that are too difficult or too heavy, but things don’t really work like that. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you’re not able to outrun or out-think your emotions. Sometimes, you just have to run with them.
Cancer- June 21 – July 22
The Crab - because they are secretive and guarded. A hard shell protects the soft flesh beneath (their extreme emotional sensitivity).
You might feel safest when you can keep a large part of yourself hidden: your true desires, your real feelings, your honest beliefs about the dog park. There’s an unbearable vulnerability in being truly seen. This week, though, it’s important not to prioritize the feeling of safety above the joys — however risky — of letting yourself be known. This is a week for straightforwardness, even when it might feel frightening. It’s a week for directness and honesty - If you want that extra walk you’re going to have to fight for it! . This week, the world will reward you for barking freely. Don’t deny yourself and others transformation. Times are a-changing. Run towards evolution. Roll around with the newness and embrace it. Open your eyes and mind to the power of the present. Accept fresh and revolutionary ideas
Take time to recenter your spirit on Saturday as Mercury, which oversees inner growth, whizzes into courageous Aries. Seek out like-minded dogs who want to connect and share your truth.
Leo- July 23 – August 22
The Lion - because of their regal and noble personality, they love to lead and naturally protect those they perceive as being vulnerable.
Patience is a virtue, Leo. If you’re planning on seeing that special pup on that walk, you may need to watch your words on Tuesday, as feisty Mars creates a square against love-ruling Pluto. It could feel easy to give into impatience, selfishness, and neediness during this emotional transit. Channel your energy towards improving your space on Tuesday, when materialistic Mercury forms a sextile with domestic Pluto. Mercury makes his way into confident Aries starting Saturday, helping you to adopt a mindset of abundance. You’re able to think and bark boldly about what you want. This week, daily life might feel unimaginably difficult, as your ordinary modes of connection become unavailable to you and you feel blocked from participating in the world around you. So this week, your task isn’t just to re-establish relationships with other people, but also to strengthen your sense of yourself. Your personality hasn’t been taken away; your unique vitality hasn’t been lost. Your life may feel strange and new, but it’s still yours.
Virgo- August 23 – September 22
The Virgin - because of their pure intentions, and their modest, conscientious nature. They’re often pictured holding a sheaf of wheat which symbolises the fertilisation of ideas / skills to benefit the world.
Are you feeling a little out of sync, Virgo? This week, as you try to go on living amidst all this chaos, you might find yourself crashing up against your own thorny fears — fear of the grim present or the bleak future, fear of other people’s cruel actions and careless hearts. Instead of trying to suppress all of this, try to sit with it, to see what it has to show you. Fear can clarify your desires; it can show you what you’ll fight for, what you will not give up willingly. And it can remind you how much glowing, golden courage you have. Refocus your energy on home and family on Tuesday, as communicative Mercury creates a sextile with domestic-ruling Jupiter. Now is the time to ground yourself with the people that support you. You’ll have your mojo back soon. This is a great time to experiment with new ideas and see what sticks. Now is the time to learn a new trick! You will come to see that you still have the momentum and drive to manifest that extra afternoon walk.
Libra- September 23 – October 22
The Scales - because Librans are ALL about balance. Keeping everything on an even keel and behaving with fairness are their driving motivations.
It’s easier to make your inner self known, Libra. You’re ready to abandon giving your human the cold paw on Tuesday, when spiritual Mercury creates a sextile with chatty Jupiter. Make some new friends on that walk and deepen existing relationships during this favorable transit. You may notice that you start craving cuddles on Tuesday, as the Moon waxes full in Libra at 10:34 p.m. EST. Make an effort to prioritize the humans who have your best interests at heart, and avoid spending your energy on barks just to fill time. Thoughtful Mercury makes his way into enthusiastic Aries on Saturday, helping you to prioritize your hidden self. Take time to roll around with your feelings. Also take the feelings of the human into account- the human is not going anywhere anytime soon - make the best of it!
Scorpio- October 23 – November 21
The Scorpion - because Scorpios are kinda’ dangerous, a secretive creature which can poison its enemies if riled… beware!
Are you feeling a cramped, Scorpio? Get some air and take a long walk on Tuesday, as routine-ruling Mars forms a square against domestic Uranus. This clash can make you prone to emotional bark-ups, so find healthy ways to express your frustrations with loved ones- Leave the humans shoes alone, dear Scorpio.

Open yourself up to new possibilities, go up the block instead of down and see what happens. Everyone needs a hand up sometimes and your social circle is more than willing to help you in any way possible. Stepping out of your comfort zone and admitting you need some pup interaction may be hard, but necessary now.
Sagittarius- November 22 – December 21
The Archer - because they aim high and true, love the outdoors and enjoy the thrill of the case.
Make an effort to connect with a new group of dogs, Sagittarius. Are you looking for a new dog park? You could find one on Tuesday, when passionate Mercury creates a sextile with inner growth-ruling Pluto. Enjoy sharing toys and bones with humans who share your fire during this favorable transit. Your heart fills with emotion on Tuesday as enthusiastic Mercury forms a sextile with ruling Jupiter. You’re ready to be raw; just make sure that you’re taking steps to protect your generous spirit. Set boundaries with people so that they know how to treat you. You could be ready to make some bold moves beginning on Saturday, when love-ruling Mercury makes his way into excitable Aries. There are so many new opportunities for you to take on. Try a little bite of everything.
Feeling caged in or bored from self-isolating? Don’t despair, dear archer! Even in the midst of this chaos, you’re learning, expanding your wisdom, increasing your powers of knowing the world. It’s important to give yourself time to adapt to the changed world you’re living in. All the wisdom you’ve gathered is of no real use to you if you don’t learn how to hold it, how to keep it, how to use it.
Capricorn- December 22 – January 19
The Goat - because they are a determined animal who rises up the path by taking advantage of every foothold. Always climbing.
How do you react when you feel challenged, Capricorn? You may come up against some resistance at home on Tuesday, when domestic-governing Mars creates a square against Uranus.

All the humans are looking to you for inspiration and leadership- YOU ARE HOLDING THEM TOGETHER. The world is watching and waiting to applaud your courage.
This week, it’s going to be important for you to remember the compassion deep in your core. It can be easy for others, and even for you, to forget how much your whole worldview is built on a foundation of care. But it’s a fundamental part of you.
Aquarius - January 20 – February 18
The Water-Bearer - symbolically, the water represents truth, which Aquarians deliver freely and fairly to the world. A truth-sayer!
You’re getting pretty restless from being in self-quarantine, dear Aquarius. Rather than creating unnecessary drama with your humans, reach out to your crew when you’re on that walk to let them know how much you care. The human wants to do whats in your best interest, believe it or not. Are you tempted to rage a little? You may be feeling extra rebellious on Tuesday, when fiery Mars creates a square against ruling Uranus. Take a second to think about what you’re barking out against, and break these emotions up so that you can better understand your motivations. You could be struck with the memory of where you hid that bone on Tuesday, when messenger Mercury forms a sextile with Pluto in retrograde. Playing detective could improve your practice while these planets complement each other. You’re in the mood to connect with friends on Tuesday when the routine-ruling Moon waxes full in social Libra at 10:34 p.m. EST. Reach out to loved ones and take extra care to listen during this transit.
A new intensity of feeling might seem to cloud your vision at the start of this week. It might make you feel as though you can hardly see the world through a haze of grief or rage or desire. But if you keep moving through it, this intensity of feeling can begin to resolve itself.
Pisces- February 19 – March 20
Two fishes tied to one another, swimming in opposite directions- because all Pisceans swim amidst shifting emotional currents, and are plagued by both conflicting desires and extremes of temperament.

You don’t need to feel any shame over your emotions, even the ones that seem ugly or difficult. You should suppress your unruly instincts and feelings until they’re orderly, simple, polite. Lets adjust together.
