Ariens treat their pets on the level,
no messing about, in the business of telling it like it is.
Sloppy sentiment is not your style. Your pets, just like your
friends, know that they can rely on you to be entirely straightforward
with them. And, in return, they have to learn that what you
Being born under a Fire sign and ruled
by Mars, the mythological god of war, typical Aries is frank,
forceful and fearless. And you normally look for the same
characteristics in your pets. You are certainly not interested
in animals whose main attraction is that of a decorative appendage.
Active and enterprising yourself, you tend to seek those same
characteristics when choosing a pet. Anything sluggish, bored
or boring is, very definitely, not for you.
For that reason, Ariens are natural dog
owners. Your love of exercise means that long walks are a
pleasure rather than a chore. You are especially compatible
with working and sporting dogs such as Labradors, collies
and retrievers. Irish - or red - setters are a natural choice,
sharing many of the characteristics of the typical Aries.
Confident, straightforward, friendly, stubborn, energetic
and entertaining, they have expressive faces and hearty appetites.
For the Aries who lacks the time necessary
to indulge her or his love of the great outdoors, there is
always something a little smaller and less demanding such
as the giant lop rabbit.
As far removed from the timid little bunny
as the tortoise from the hare, this bold and adventurous Peter
Rabbit character needs plenty of space to explore and graze.
And where better to satisfy its voracious appetite than in
the garden of a bold and adventurous Aries!
Typical Ariens, known for their independence,
are natural cat admirers - and owners - and any Aries seeking
a free-spirited feline soulmate, could hardly do better than
to pick a ginger cat. One of the most straightforward, honest,
good-natured and gutsy members of the cat fraternity, the
ginger tom is a bit of a lad with a propensity for getting
into scraps with the neighbouring cats, arriving home late,
flaunting his battle scars, and nonchalantly pretending not
to lick his wounds.
Although your birth sign, the first in
the Great Wheel of Zodiac, is symbolized by the Ram, when
it comes to picking an outdoor companion, you would be much
better advised to choose a goat. Despite being the astrological
symbol for Capricorn, goats share the Aries tendency to rush
at life headlong and, at times, horns down! They are, however,
good-natured, intelligent and entertaining companions.
The suggestions above are merely guidelines
and in no way suggest that there is only one breed or type
of pet which is suitable for any one Zodiac sign. And it is,
of course, essential to know everything there is to know about
buying and keeping any pet before taking it home.
