Your Pet’s Birthday Horoscope

For the Aries Birthdays 

March 21st - April 19th

April will be all about socializing for your dog or cat. The full moon in Libra on the 5th encourages you to set up a playdate or hit up the dog park with your pet. As the month progresses and we pass a historic total eclipse, you might notice that your pet has a little extra energy or might be more chatty than usual. Lean into this behavior — you might be surprised by what comes out of it!

For the Taurus Birthdays

April 20th - May 20th

Now is the time to establish routines and introduce regimens to your pet. Stable Taurus will benefit from the added balance, especially because the total eclipse on the 8th might inspire some mischief in your dog or cat. Towards the back half of the month, you might notice some restlessness. Consider introducing your pet to a new mental enrichment game to test their genius and add more structure to their day!

Which Celebrity is Your Pet’s Birthday Twin?

Paul Rudd - April 6th

If your pet is kind, considerate, and might be nothing short of perfect, they’re just like their birthday twin Paul Rudd. 

Robert Downey Jr. - April 4th

Is your pet bold, confident, and known for their playful streak? That’s the Robert Downey Jr. in them! 

Kristen Stewart - April 9th

If your pet is more on the introverted side, is wildly smart, and can’t do the cold (Twilight, anyone?), it’s because of their birthday twin, Kristen Stewart. 

Emma Watson - April 15th

If your pet navigates social situations with ease, has a big heart, and is ridiculously kind, they’re the most like Emma Watson!
