This post is dedicated to my Aquarius Tonkinese Cat, Romeo to whom I also dedicated my fourth and latest cat book, The Complete Guide to Holistic Cat Care, which I co-wrote with holistic veterinarian, Jean Hofve, DVM. There are several photos and stories in this book that feature Romeo and the lessons he taught me.
I am not sure if it was the fact that Romeo was an Aquarian (born January 29th) or whether he was just that one in a million cat that came into my life who seemed to understand every word I said, but he surely sounds like an Aquarius to me and fits the profile “purrfectly.”
Whether or not you believe in astrology, astrology for cats can be fun! You don’t need to know the exact birthday of your beloved felines – you can just peruse the personality traits here and see what fits or what doesn’t, simple as that.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus.
Aquarius is an air sign, with an elementary quality of wet heat.
This sign governs the legs, ankles, circulatory system, and blood.
Aquarius is one of the six masculine signs of the zodiac and is known to be strong, trusting, fearless, and courageous, but also sensitive. There are six masculine and six feminine signed that alternate around the zodiac circle. Think of this like yin and yang.
The Aquarian cat is incredibly psychic. To say he is deep is an understatement as he just seems to know things without knowing how or why he knows. There is nothing average about the Aquarius cat. He’s the most precocious cat or kitten in the entire house, and becomes top cat before you know it. He loves his freedom and is fiercely independent, but also extremely affectionate.
It doesn’t matter whether your Aquarius is actually male or female, neutered or spayed, because they love to dominate everyone and everything and just seem to naturally take command.
Aquarian cats will also talk to you incessantly, almost in whole sentences. Just one “meow” won’t do…they will utter a string of them and often howl at the top of their lungs! Once there was a tiny little garden snake in the house and Romeo yowled at the top of his lungs for me to come see his new friend and much to his chagrin I ushered this interloper back out to the garden.
