Who says that cats can’t also have zodiac signs just like humans? One of the best ways to understand your cat(s) is knowing his/her birthdate. If you also know the exact place and time of the birth, that’s even better. You’ll be able to get hold of your cat’s natal chart which is something I wished I had. However, if your cat is adopted and his/her birthdate is unknown, you can always estimate and look for the qualities that match your cat’s ego the most.
Sun in Aries (March 21-April 19) Fire element
These are the toughest kitties on the corner (I should know because my furdaughter is an Aries). Rather than settling down on your lap for an affectionate grooming session, the Aries cat prefers to play. Yes, playtime is better than cuddly time in the eyes of the Aries. The Aries cat is incredibly stubborn; she/he won’t take “no” for an answer. If you say “no,” she/he will find other ways to manipulate you. For self-defense, these felines are most likely the ones to challenge another being to a fight. This could be your neighbor’s large-sized dog or the veterinarian. I won’t be surprised if veterinarians have a hard time giving an Aries cat a checkup. As an independent and freedom-loving feline, the Aries cat loves to explore outdoors. Keeping an indoor Aries cat will bore him/her to death if you don’t have a closed backyard or garden, so provide a lot of playtime with different games. If your cat spontaneously runs across the room like a cheetah or pounces at your feet under a table, that’s most likely a cat with an Aries heart.
Sun in Taurus (April 20-May 20) Earth element
The Taurus cat prefers routine and has strong habits. Thus, the feline is quite stubborn when it comes to conforming to changes. He/she has a favorite spot when it comes to sunbathing, sitting, and sleeping. Like most Earthy cats, the feline prefers stability and comfort. The Taurus cat especially loves to eat, so you should be careful how much you feed him/her when it comes to dry food. If he/she tries to persuade you for more food, don’t give in because you’ll end up overfeeding. The Taurus cat is also shy around strangers, but there is no doubt they love children. In return of reaching the Taurus’s needs and happiness, he/she will shower you with devotion and affection.
Sun in Gemini (May 21-June 21) Air element
These felines make the purrfect familiars because they are curious, intelligent, and fast learners. The Gemini cat is talkative and demands a lot of attention from you. Although he/she isn’t greedy when it comes to food, the Gemini cat prefers a variety of interesting new food. The Gemini cat enjoys being both indoors and outdoors; it depends on their boredom when there isn’t enough fun. The feline likes to explore, especially in the house where there are plenty of neat hiding spots. An outdoor Gemini cat is most likely to stray far from your home because he/she constantly looks for an adventure, so it’s better if you learn how to leash train him/her. Both of you would then will be able to go on walks together. As an adult cat, “once a kitten, always a kitten.”
Sun in Cancer (June 22-July 22) Water element
Because the moon rules Cancer, the Cancer cat can be very psychic. The feline knows where he/she is going before you even take out the cat carrier for his/her vet appointment. The Cancer cat is quite affectionate and family-oriented; having a litter of kittens is an ideal desire. However, there are enough homeless kittens in the shelters for you to adopt and let your Cancer feline take care of. So please get your feline neutered or spayed (this goes to all cats of any zodiac sign!). He/she may also end up adopting a stuffed animal. I can imagine a Cancer cat meowing several times in the middle of the night while carrying a small doll in his/her mouth. The Cancer cat loves to receive affection in return through a tender petting session and being carried around the house. Just remember to give your feline enough attention every day, and your Cancer kitty will be satisfied.
Sun in Leo (July 23-August 22) Fire element
Like the lion, the Leo cat is proud and walks gracefully on his/her four paws. The feline is lazy and may spend the day dozing off in the sunshine. The Leo cat dominants your house and other animal companions you have and dislike strangers visiting his/her house. Climbing and observing others from a high elevation is entertaining. The Leo cat also enjoys being in the center of attention and showing off tricks. To show his/her appreciation for you, the feline may bring you a dead mouse or something he/she proudly caught as a present. Just accept your Leo cat’s gift and your kitty a treat in thanks.
Sun in Virgo (August 23-September 22) Earth element
Because the Virgo cat is naturally a critic, the feline is picky when it comes to food and doesn’t have many health problems. He/she likes to be clean and grooms often to keep his/her fur in place and free of other scent. The Virgo cat understands you more than others because he/she analyzes you often. The Virgo cat is most comfortable with a calm life of routine and shows affection in subtle ways. Although he/she is independent, giving attention to the Virgo cat is a must. Provide the feline a window perch, so he/she can observe the outside world.
Sun in Libra (September 23-October 23) Air element
The Libra cat is a purrfect lap cat and sits on you or others whenever he/she gets the chance. Like the Cancer cat, the Libra cat is also affectionate and enjoys showing love. The feline understands you whenever you communicate to him/her. Learning things is also not a problem. At times the Libra cat may decide to spend time with another person in your family, but he/she is just giving love to everyone equally. She/he enjoys a peaceful environment, so arguing will make the feline stressful. He/she may end up being the one trying to break the argument with a loud meow. Going outdoors is fun to the Libra cat, but don’t expect the feline to chase after birds or insects.
Sun in Scorpio (October 24-November 21) Water element
Being a good manipulator, a Scorpio cat makes a purrfect familiar because he/she can mind read. The feline may be curious whenever you cook and watch you on top of the counter. The Scorpio feline is secretive and is most likely to steal the bread from the table and eat it in the basement. If you have other cats, the Scorpio cat may demand you to give him/her the most devotion. The feline gets envious when the attention you give isn’t toward him/her. The Scorpio cat may end up hiding somewhere and return back to you when visitors leave the house, so your attention to him/her can return again. He/she may also form a special, strong attachment to you and protect you territorially.
Sun in Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Fire element
The Sagittarius cat is a naughty but adventurous fun kitty. The cat that “has nine lives” applies to the Sagittarius cat because he/she is always getting into trouble but ends up unharmed. He/she may occasionally return home with scrapes and make you feel worried. Due to the Sagittarius cat’s curious nature, he/she will make your laugh even if he/she didn’t intend to. However, the feline is naturally humorous and enjoys making you and others laugh. He/she is also energetic both outdoors and indoors and loves freedom and independence just like the Aries cat. Unlike the other two firey cats, the Sagittarius cat is not territorial and enjoys sharing the house with other animal companions.
Sun in Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Earth element
Due to the Capricorn cat’s faithfulness, he/she only gives you the most affection than others. As a kitten and adult, the feline prefers to play with you rather than toys. Because the Capricorn cat is serious and prefers stability, he/she doesn’t take risks and is less likely to explore outdoors. The feline is not a problem when it comes to feeding time; he/she isn’t picky and doesn’t like to waste food. The Capricorn cat is often shy and may stay close to you throughout his/her whole life. When it comes to children and the elderly, the Capricorn cat knows how to be considerate toward them. The feline is also patient and undemanding but giving them love and attention is necessary.
Sun in Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Air element
The Aquarius cat is unique and very intelligent. You know you have an Aquarius cat when he/she taught himself/herself how to open the door or use the toilet. The feline sometimes appears emotionally distant and needs some personal space. He/she is less likely to miss you terribly when you’re on vacation because he/she ends up forming a bond with the caregiver. Because of the Aquarius cat’s curious nature, the kitty enjoys exploring outdoors and visiting other homes. If your Aquarius cat is an outdoor feline, make sure to get him/her a collar or a microchip just in case he/she gets lost. The feline may also be humorous at times and enjoy getting surprised reactions from you and other humans; tag would be one of the Aquarius cat’s favorite games.
Sun in Pisces (February 19-March 20) Water element
The Pisces cat is sensitive and intuitive and is likely to be the most psychic feline. The Pisces cat finds watching the television and the birds outside entertaining. He/she has a thing for water and may enjoy watching you take a shower and other watery activities in the bathroom. Like the Cancer cat, the Pisces cat is very affectionate and family-oriented. He/she dislikes being alone and becomes very dependent on others. If you have one cat that happens to be a Pisces and you know you aren’t home often, make sure to get another feline companion for your Pisces, so he/she won’t feel lonely.
