The science of astrology is based on stars and planets. To have an accurate astrological chart reading involves complicated calculations derived from the planetary positions of the sun, stars, and moon as they were at the time and date of birth.
Most of us do not have this information for our pets so the information below may not be precisely scientific, but it is interesting and fun.
Look at the characteristics that apply to your pet’s astrological sign and compare it with your pet’s temperament, personality, and health.
