Your animals can be your best friends in life. Just like us, they also have their unique personalities. We may not always know their exact time of birth but we can still look at the chart for the day of birth and determine an incredible amount of information. If the exact time is unavailable a Sun sign chart will be used as the basis for the chart. We can benefit by knowing where our pets' full potential might be met. And like our human friends there may also be difficult areas of their personalities, which we must learn to accept or correct. Not all dogs are suited for agility or obedience. Some will do better at guarding their masters; others might behave well in conformation. By understanding the potential of our dogs we seek ways to improve what already exists and accept things that are sometimes unchangeable or a challenge.
There are 4 basic elements that make up a chart; they are earth, water, air and fire. If Fido has 4 or more planets in one of these elements he is considered to have more than average. By giving a weight or number to these planets we can determine if the chart has tendencies that would be influenced by being overweighted in that particular element. The Ascendant, Midheaven and planets on the angles are also given a number, which is included in determining the makeup of a chart.

Fido has an abundance of fire in his chart. The true hunter, explorer and leader of the pack. A pioneering attitude, the alpha male of the group. He may even try to control you. Fido needs plenty of exercise to get rid of all that excess energy he has. Since Fido can be dominant and controlling it would be wise to start obedience training early. Make sure he understands you are boss. Socialize early and show a lot of respect and admiration. Fido needs to feel like he is number one. The other animals will respect him, and so should you. Fido would run through fire to save you and your family members. He is fearless and will stop at nothing to protect you. Fido must be guarded from his own impulsive actions. Always place him on a lead so that sudden escape urges don't lead to injuries. Companion animals should be submissive. Always pay special attention to Fido and groom him often. This will give him a feeling of being adored and spoiled, satisfying his need of being number one. Fido needs your approval and praise for survival and will go through any challenge to receive it; even if it gets him disapproving attention, it's better than none.
Sun Signs give the basic identity of an animal. This is the real side you will see once he trusts you enough to show it to you. Although not always apparent to strangers, to those he lives with, there is no question what Fido is really like. The basic needs and patterns in life are strongly governed by the Sun. Where it is found in the chart will influence that area of your dog's life strongly. He will put his best paw forward in this area, being noticed by all.
Sun in Leo:
Fido must feel equal to his master in every way. Adore him and make him feel every part as special as he is. Frequent grooming and attention will provide the bond Fido needs to feel important. Fido is looked up to and respected by all other animals in the family. Calm but watchful. Always on the prowl for foe or game. Conformation ring would serve Fido well as it gives him adequate time to be prepped and adorned. Others admire and praise Fido's movements and appearance with ample rewards in the process. He does not like work much but will accommodate you for the praise he knows he deserves. Loyal in every way, Fido is a good companion and guard dog. Keep Fido's winning ribbons and pictures on your walls for proof of his accomplishments. Make sure he is included in all social events that make him the center of attention. Fido is not a pest and will expect you to come to him for attention. Quite comfortable lying around soaking up the sunshine - give him plenty of time to do so. Fido needs to be an integral part of a family where he is given the respect he deserves.
Sun Conjunct Mars:
Give Fido plenty of room to run. His high energy is displayed in all he does. Never stopping long in any one place, he needs the constant attention of all. Fido lives to play and run until he passes out from exhaustion. You may need to guard him from overdoing it. He makes a great running companion. Fido may be quick to demonstrate his annoyance with others who try to intimidate him. Other animals will have to take a submissive role.
Sun Sextile Saturn:
Keep Fido working on projects that can keep his attention. Once he sets out to do something you can bet on it that it will get done. Work is not difficult for Fido and he enjoys it. If you are included in the bargain it becomes all the more fun. He gets satisfaction out of knowing he can please you.
Sun Opposition Uranus:
Fido can be irritable for no reason at times. Be sure to give him plenty of space at dinner time. Keep an eye on him around children or strangers. Very observant and attentive, Fido can move or act suddenly, startling those who do not know him.
Mercury in the chart shows us a little bit about the intelligence of an animal. For every human that is a little slow and methodical in their thinking there is another who is quick and intelligent in their response. Although a dog can't write or talk to us, there is a certain communication that he shares with other animals and humans. Some are quick learners while others take a more practical approach to learning. Mercury shows you strengths or obstacles that may occur in the process.
Mercury in Virgo:
Often seen pacing, Fido has a hard time quieting his active mind. Always worried, he looks as if he is fretting with a wrinkled brow. Is everyone happy? Is everyone eating? Is someone sick? These seem to be the things that Fido worries about most. Not happy unless caring for others; if there are no other animals you will be his object of concern. Always vigilant and observant of everything you do, Fido will not rest until you do. Wanting to heal you and care for you, Fido can be seen at your side. Since he will be worried and anxious until you return it might be easier to include him in your daily activities. Take him to work so he can worry about your coworkers as well; they will get a real charge out of this little powerhouse. Always in motion, his nervous energy may get the better of him. Show Fido how to relax and take time out for outdoor activity. His love of birds and aerial chases is well known.
Mercury Square Moon:
Fido will perform for anyone, it doesn't have to be his love interest. Emotions are best saved for later. Work first, reward and love later - there is no mixing of the two. In fact he may do better with a stranger where emotions are concerned. Give Fido to the handler to show and see what a difference it makes in his behavior. He knows you love him enough to let him get away with murder and will try to finagle his way out of things secure that you won't reprimand him. Keep work and affections separate.
Mercury Square Pluto:
You may have a few power struggles with Fido when he is young. Hopefully obedience training will have straightened a few things out for him as he grows up. Although often wanting to display dominance over you and other animals, Fido can be taught the right place in the pecking order. A little extra attention and reward works well. "I will please you if you please me in return." Let Fido know he is second boss to you and you will have a happy relationship.
Venus specifies the object of desire in a chart. This could be another dog or a favorite toy - it could even be you or another member of the family. When Fido sees this object there's no looking back. Venus placement could help you find a suitable match for Fido someday. There are soul mates out there for everyone including dogs. Dogs' souls also stand the test of time. Humans are not the only ones governed by karma. Let Venus lead you and your dog to happiness in finding true love.
Venus in Libra:
Fido may think he owns all rights to you, finding it hard to share you with other members of the household. You belong to him and sharing is not part of the bargain. He showers you with gifts often hidden from view until the right moment is available. Fido can be seen in protective stances surrounding your every move. Let no one come between you or intend harm or there will be dues to pay. Fido may be sensitive and will go into seclusion if his feelings are hurt. It may take more than your ordinary amount of coaxing to bring him out of his shell especially if trust is lost. He may never forgive you.
Venus Trine Neptune:
Fido is in love with love. Shower him with kisses and affection and they will return triple fold. You are his knight in shining armor. The day rises and sets with you and he will never forget to remind you of this.
Mars in a chart allows us to see where your dog's energy is and how he might use it. Will he be quick and aggressive or passive and resistant? Let Mars help you decide what activity your dog best qualifies for.
Mars in Leo:
Fido walks proud and demands respect from all he comes in contact with, human or animal. Quick and effortless in motion, Fido can be seen gliding through the show ring displaying all that it takes to become a true winner. Fido enjoys the extra attention this provides him and will do his best when it comes to preparation. Grooming activities just reinforce how important he is to you. Praise is expected and he will reward you with quite a show. Fido loves his large family as long as he can be considered number one. Often seen lounging around the main room observant of all his offspring, which may include your children as well as his.
Mars Conjunct Sun:
Energetic and ready for action, Fido's whole body and appearance signal that he is ready, willing and able. He may work himself to exhaustion if care is not taken. Tireless and in continuous motion, Fido is hard to keep up with. A ball of energy with plenty to spare. Quick to temper - take all warnings seriously. Early obedience training is a good idea. Put all that energy to good use; find Fido a job where he can use up some of it. Running, hunting and adventure are the name of the game for Fido. If you can get him to stay still for longer than 5 minutes you've succeeded.
Mars Opposition Uranus:
Fido does not like change in his environment and will fight it all the way. Independent with a slight stubborn streak, Fido will buck authority whenever he gets a chance. This is a dog that will learn your tricks but will never be completely owned by you or anyone else.
Wherever Jupiter falls in your dog's chart is where he is most likely to find good luck and abundance. Here is where the route to all adventures begins. Follow Jupiter around the chart for an idea of where you can bring Fido the most enjoyment. Let him show you how to have fun and enjoy life in his own special way.
Jupiter in Leo:
Lucky in love and life, Fido is the flashiest dog there is, getting the attention of everyone. He knows how to work a room getting stares from judges and strangers alike. Fido's long mane and lustrous coat could be the first thing you notice about him. Or maybe what attracts you is the cocky, assured way he carries himself. Fido is bound to get more than just a few stares. He requires constant approval and attention. Grooming is not a problem since he demands it if not administered regularly. Fido loves to be adorned in beautiful things, from rhinestone collars down to the beautiful animal print bed you've bought for him. Flattery will get you everywhere with Fido and he will do more to encourage it. Attractive to all, Fido makes quite a pretty picture and is sure to garner a few trophies in the show ring.
Saturn in your dog's chart represents the disciplinarian or authority figure. This could be you or his own canine mother. This is the person who sets the limits on obedience and how Fido behaves. The rules learned here become known as Fido's personal boundaries. Boundaries and limits are meant to be challenged - Fido instinctively knows how far he can push you. By learning where Saturn is in Fido's chart we find how to manage behavior with a disciplinarian approach he can live with.
Saturn in Gemini:
Fido has more than one disciplinarian in his life. It could be you and a trainer, or you and other members in the family. He is used to being adaptable and uses discretion before responding to just anyone. Boundaries and limits change between the different disciplinarians and he knows who to push for what.
Saturn Sextile Sun:
Fido makes the best of any restrictions you apply to him, turning them around into an advantage. There will always be someone who sees the effort he makes and takes him under their wing. Fido tries hard and succeeds with help along the way. Personal or physical handicaps will not stop Fido from succeeding.
Saturn Trine Uranus:
Fido handles change better than most and becomes bored with routine quickly. Highly intelligent, Fido is able to apply this to practical situations, using his intuition as well as his senses to find objects. His highly tuned nervous system can alert you to danger at a moment's notice. This could be a dog that may be trained to also warn you of sudden health changes such as seizures. He is so attentive and sensitive to your nervous system he can detect change before it happens.
Uranus, the planet of change and excitement, remains in a sign for approximately 7 years. For this reason it is considered one of the generational planets, affecting large groups of dogs born during the period. Uranus shows us where individualism is strongest. Genius abilities can be evident with the right training. Independence is also strongest here. Change in this area can be accomplished only by communicating on a different level of understanding, for example intuition, natural forces, habit, or other unconventional and inexplicable methods. Information is processed with lightning speed showing a higher intelligence at work.
Uranus in Aquarius:
Unselfish in all he does, Fido can impress you with his loving devotion. Caring for all in the family, his humanitarian efforts do not go unnoticed. Fido can be seen helping other animals along the way and it is not unheard of for him to bring a few home with him for a free meal. He automatically senses those in need and will try to lend a hand. This does not exclude you and your friends as well. Intuitive to others he senses when there are troubled natures that need some loving attention. Fido can direct his attention to those individuals providing them with the gift of love. Through this he has accomplished more than he will ever know. Fido can be quite inventive and original when it comes to getting you to try new things. He is often the first to wake you, as his restless spirit does not allow much time for sleep. His intuitive nature will know when you're ready and remind you with a gentle nudge and his leash when it's time to go. Sometimes his erratic behavior may surprise you, but this is only his response to external stimuli he has tuned in to. Of course this is beyond your comprehension unless you're as tuned in to things as he is. Watch for restless behavior and try to allow Fido some degree of independence for him to follow his natural calling to be with others.
Uranus Opposition Sun:
Fido is known for the sudden upsets that change his life. Adaptable but sometimes resistant to change, his erratic behavior may surprise you at times. Your plans will often need to be revised because Fido is missing. This can clear the way for new and exciting changes that will make life easier for all involved.
Uranus Opposition Mars:
Fido zigs when he is supposed to zag. The information he receives is sometimes seen in reverse therefore making the response just the opposite. Energy can be used unwisely and lead to exhaustion. Allow him rest periods so that energy is not lost.
Uranus Trine Saturn:
Fido can have a method to his madness. He may seem like he is just going in circles but it's this persistence to detail that will win him rewards. Hard work in the face of change allows Fido to win despite challenges.
Neptune gives you a view into your dog's soul. It shows us the mystical magical side to him that makes him tick. What is Fido's soul purpose in life? Is it to belong to you or does he have a greater mission? The house that Neptune is found in is where Fido will sacrifice all to obtain a higher position in your eyes. Neptune takes about 14 years to complete its cycle through one sign. Many generations of dogs will have Neptune in the same sign therefore house placement will be more important, with emphasis on the activities of the house.
Neptune in Aquarius:
Fido's conception of others is derived from his intuition as well as his other senses. He communicates by telepathy and does not understand why you cannot understand. He feels a part of all beings and the connection he makes with others is quite interesting. Fido desires to help others and belong to the group. This is quite evident. Activities that are done with large groups of animals can be something Fido enjoys and looks foreword to. Enjoying the feeling of being a part of the masses, Fido performs best with others.
Neptune Trine Venus:
If looks could kill Fido would surely be a slayer. The laid back assured way that Fido presents this is part of the appeal. Not overly energetic, Fido would prefer you come to him with treats. He know you can't resist and if he looks cute enough you'll eventually come through.
Pluto in Fido's chart shows where he has the greatest potential. Through instruction and sometimes change he can achieve mastery of any skill you teach him. Instinctively Fido knows, as if from a prior lifetime, exactly how to do things, even if he was never taught before. Never having experienced a specific activity before and without prior knowledge, Fido can be an expert at this activity expressed by the house in which Pluto is located.
Pluto in Sagittarius:
Fido has enough adventure in him to provide you with entertainment for life. Almost goofy in his antics he can give you hours of fun. Follow him to wooded paths where Fido can hunt, trail and raise prey just for entertainment. Provide Fido with ample outdoor play time where he can roam in the wild.
Pluto Conjunct Moon:
Fido can greet emotional outbursts with aggressive behavior so curb your enthusiasm even if fooling around. Sensitive to your emotions, he may sense when you are hurt and act on your behalf. Use caution when hurt for Fido will come to your rescue at any expense; cars and larger animals do not scare him when it comes to your safety.
Pluto Square Mercury:
Fido does not always think before acting. His aggressive attitude will have to be changed right from the first day you begin training. Fido's headstrong attitude will require the right owner to make things work out. With the right method you may be able to control this dominant dog into seeing things your way. Fido learns quickly and will soon be trying to please you.
