Getting a pet isn't a decision you should make on a whim. There are lots of factors to consider, like whether you have the time and resources to take care of an animal, if the people you live with are OK with an animal in the house, and what the best pets for your sign are. The movement of the stars influences everything from the nail polish you should wear to which Disney princess's personality matches up best with your sign, so it shouldn't come as a surprise the stars also help show you what your ideal pet according to your zodiac sign is.

You may think you want a dog, but will a pup fit in with your astrological personality? Or maybe your sign is telling you to get an animal you wouldn't have even considered, like a snake. If you feel like you need an animal in your life, check out these zodiac sign pet matches.

Tauruses can be stubborn folks who refuse to move (both metaphorically and literally) if something doesn't seem pleasant or fun to them. This slow-but-steady, contemplative mentality is perfectly mirrored by a pet turtle. A small turtle with an earthy aquarium set-up would be suit this Earth sign wonderfully.

Gemini are social butterflies. They can talk to just about anyone about anything, so they need a pet who can exchange quips at all hours. Geminis will appreciate the chatter and companionship of a parrot. As an Air sign, a Gemini may take more naturally to a bird as a pet as well.
