Many times, out of interest, people have looked for many things that are associated with their zodiac signs such as plants, herbs, and colors. How about wild animals? Because believe it or not, wild animals can be associated with each zodiac sign based on their nature and personalities in general. Let’s go over those right now.
Are you ready to find out which wild animal is associated with your zodiac sign?
Aries – Cheetah
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it is a fire sign that represents passion, speed, and initiation. Those traits most definitely match with the cheetah. They are known to be the fastest animal in the wild, and this correlates with Aries as this sign is the go-getter of the zodiac.
Not only does the cheetah run extremely fast but they hunt very well with passion, just like the Aries!
Taurus – Sloth
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac that is an earth sign that represents a love for the material which includes food, security, routine, and anything that is predictable. Those who have this sun sign are quite happy and content to lie around which is why the sloth is a perfect Taurean animal.
This may sound like an insult because sloths are associated with being lazy which the Taurus is not. That is a myth anyway because sloths are dedicated and hardworking animals just like the Taurean nature. They are slow-moving which is why the sign is associated with them as they are extremely patient and move at the pace, they are comfortable with.
Gemini – Meerkat
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and it is an air sign that represents communication, movement, and variety. Gemini is a social sign and meerkats are social animals that love being in close-knit communities and are fun-loving as well, just like the sign!
Additionally, like the Gemini, the meerkat doesn’t stay in one place. Especially if it involves a conflict of any kind which makes them nervous. And Gemini is associated with nervous energy.
Cancer – The Lion
Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that rules family, home, and emotions. It is a nurturing sign and the reason that the Cancer is associated with the lion (which ironically the Leo is not in this case), is because of how they fiercely protect their cubs, their pride which is their home and family, and how they will put their lives on the line for their cubs and other members of the pride. Even though the Lion is associated with Leo, it is not the fitting wild animal association for that sign.
Leo – The Zebra
Leo is the fifth zodiac sign and it is a fire sign that represents playfulness, creativity, love for being in the spotlight, and their pride. The lion may be associated with Cancer but the zebra, the lion’s meal is associated with Leo.
Zebras are flashy with their stripes and are also animals that represent what pride is about since they can take care of themselves quite well. Yes, they can fall prey to lions, but they don’t as often as you may think because they are very bold, highly self-confident, and knows how to outsmart them. And like Leo, zebras are extremely stubborn.
Virgo – The Ant
Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac and it is an earth sign that represents hard work, service, health, and being analytical. This may sound like an odd association, but the ant is associated with Virgo. That is because ants are extremely hard working, do things in a strategic way, and are analytical in their own way. That is why the best association for this sign is the ant.
Libra – Capybara
Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and it is an air sign that represents beauty, fairness, balance, and anything social. That is why the animal that is associated with Libra is the capybara.
The capybara is the largest rodent in the world, and they live in Central and South America. They are extremely friendly and are very social and stick together in groups. They are also really adorable which is fitting as well!
Scorpio – The Raven
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that represents intensity, extremes, and passion. The most fitting animal that is associated with Scorpio is the raven. Light and dark are what the animal is associated with just like Scorpio. They remember who has wronged them just like the Scorpio and can forever hold a grudge.
Ravens are also quite mysterious, just as Scorpios are. Ravens also have their own way of playing tricks, and the way the Scorpio parallels this is that they have their own way of digging into things to unravel mysteries.
Sagittarius – Red Panda
Sagittarius is the ninth sign and it is a fire sign that rules adventure, exploration, and fun. And red pandas most definitely fit this sign. That is because red pandas like to go on their own and wander off to explore. They enjoy having a good time as well and they can also be impatient and impulsive – which is also the downside of Sagittarius.
But these animals are playful and like to have fun just like the sign it is associated with.
Capricorn – The Honeybee
Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac and it is an earth sign that rules determination, business, and hard work. The honeybee is what rules all of those traits as they are set in reaching their goals and are extremely determined.
They are also known to be inflexible which is also the trait of Capricorn and that is what ends up getting them the results they work hard for.
Aquarius – Elephant
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac and it is an air sign that represents innovation, uniqueness, and humanitarianism. The best-fitting animal for Aquarius is the elephant due to the fact that they are very intelligent and are somewhat social and only live in small groups.
Like the Aquarius, the elephant is aloof and appears to have tough skin the same way those who have the sun sign do but underneath they are soft. And an Aquarius as a great memory just like the elephant as the elephant never forgets.
Pisces – Dolphin
Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that represents emotions, empathy, intuition, and peace. The dolphin is the best-fitting animal for this sun sign as they are peaceful, fun-loving, and social as well.
And according to Greek mythology, dolphins offered support and wisdom to humans and were excellent companions. They also sing to their young to offer support and compassion, and Pisces is associated with music. And lastly, they live in water and after all, Pisces is a water sign!
If you feel that other animals are better fitting to each of the sun signs, then why not share your thoughts. Because more than one animal most definitely can be associated with the signs! Why not find out what other ones are based on their traits and nature?
