Everybody wants to be happy, though it’s impossible to be happy every second of every day (especially during a retrograde!). What makes each of us happy can vary wildly. Each Zodiac sign has its own idea of what happiness looks like.
This may be seen through the sign of your Sun (which rules your inner self), your Moon (which rules what you need emotionally), your Venus (which rules what you take pleasure in), or your 5th house (which rules what you enjoy and love). Which do you resonate with most?
Happiness by Zodiac Sign:
Aries: Aries wants to be busy - staying put is no good for this sign! Aries likes to be active, especially physically active, so this sign can be happiest running, hiking, biking, skydiving, snowboarding, anything physical. Aries also likes some engagement so they have someone to lead with enthusiasm.
Taurus: Taurus wants to take it easy - kick back, relax, and laze the day away. Taurus wants to be one with nature, sitting around a campfire making s’mores, laying on a towel on the beach catching some rays, sitting on a boat fishing. Taurus also loves almost anything with food - the richer the food, the better!
Gemini: Gemini wants to use the mind - grab a puzzle or crossword, gab on the phone or Skype with a bestie, laugh at a gossip mag, read a favorite book. Gemini can spend a while on social media, or texting, or writing or learning. Gemini likes to absorb lots of different information about lots of different things.
Cancer: Cancer wants to stick to what’s most comfortable - snuggle in your pajamas, in bed, with a soft blanket and your favorite movie and some cookies. Cancer can enjoy baking, having a family dinner or game night, and being a little domestic. Cancer can also like being around water or at the beach.
Leo: Leo wants to connect to its inner child - be playful and goofy, play pranks, play games you played as a child, color or fingerpaint or blow bubbles! Leo likes some attention, so put on a show, dance, make costumes, play dress up. Leo also likes almost anything creative, and can be drawn to the arts.
Virgo: Virgo wants to keep it simple - nothing too loud, nothing too rowdy, a little bit of quiet time with a book or movie, decompressing in a quiet space. Virgo sometimes liked to clean or tidy up to relax. Virgo may want work that doesn’t feel like work, and to keep busy with little things, always avoiding idle hands.
Libra: Libra wants to spend time with others - dinner parties, double dates, group functions, anything with a partner. Libra likes to do things that seem peaceful, aren’t confrontational, and keep them away from drama. Libra can enjoy fancy, trendy places, the arts, and anything with fashion or style.
Scorpio: Scorpio wants a little intensity - focusing on taboo subjects or doing taboo things. Scorpio is passionate, so sex is always a top option for “fun” for this sign (though it may be taken more seriously than just “fun”). Scorpio likes to research mysteries, can get into spy novels and thrillers, and can go for sci fi and a little gore.
Sagittarius: Sagittarius wants adventure - travel to somewhere exotic, see new places, have new experiences, be bold and daring. Go skydiving or bungee jumping. Sagittarius is an eternal student of life, so learn about other cultures and beliefs or teach others your wisdom. Sagittarius also likes to defend and point out the positives.
Capricorn: Capricorn wants something a little more traditional - stick to what you know best, and focus on your ambitions. Capricorn wants success, and can be happiest when experiencing success. Capricorn can enjoy anything where it gets to be the boss, not being a fan of following the leader.
Aquarius: Aquarius wants something a little unconventional - something new, experimental, that’s way out there and different from everything else. Aquarius can be into tech, anything online, or anything futuristic. Aquarius likes being with friends, in groups, or pursuing causes, wanting to have a place it belongs and make an impact.
Pisces: Pisces wants a little tenderness - listening to music, drinking some wine, channeling spirit guides. Pisces loves a little soul, tending to spiritual needs and focusing on spiritual subjects, connecting to the inner mystic and strengthening intuition. Pisces also loves the arts, and usually loves anything with water.
