It really can be the smallest things that give us the most happiness. We might think it’s money and being able to buy whatever we want that makes us happy when in truth it’s the experiences we have that are the big producers of happiness. Strangely, astrology can help. Here are the small things that make you happy based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Winning makes you very happy, whether it’s a game that you once played as a child or a tennis match with a friend. Small or large victories and doing something are your keys to happiness.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Since you are very sensual, anything that has to do with the senses make you happy. If you smell something wonderful like freshly baked bread or if someone gives you a glorious bouquet of flowers that you can feast your eyes on, you are happy.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It may be old school but having a long catch-up conversation on the phone with someone you care about makes you genuinely happy. You love connecting with people.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
One simple thing that makes you happy is when you get a gesture of support from your friends or family. Knowing that someone understands and has your back is a sure way to get you to have the positive feels.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You are so generous and fabulous that it’s no wonder the small thing that makes you happy is when you make someone else happy. You might give a stranger a compliment or give a hug to a friend, and you get contact happiness from the exchange.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You get happy when you achieve a small victory such as fixing the hard drive on a computer or figuring out why your streaming device isn’t working. You get pleasure from solving mysteries, puzzles and complicated problems.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You get great happiness from making other people laugh — it’s one of the reasons you are often the life of the party. You like being entertaining and fun, and there’s no better way of knowing that for sure than by the sound of other people’s laughter.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
People may not know it by looking at you but you get very happy when you are singing in your car, or in the shower, or around the house. It could be anything from opera to Taylor Swift, but when you’re belting it out, you are happy.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You get happy when you buy something that you really want and you get it on sale. Since you love traveling so much, the transaction could happen in a flea market in London or at a souk in Morocco.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You are always working and multi-tasking so it’s not surprising that one of the small things that makes you happy is waking up before your alarm goes off, realising that you can go back to sleep. Hell, you can even sleep in if you want to; though knowing you, you rarely want to.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You get happy when you do something spontaneous and unexpected, like when you are on a road trip and you decide to take an old highway that you have never traveled on before.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The small thing that makes you happy is when you get a chance to be creative. It doesn’t have to be a great work of art that you are working on; it can just be painting your child’s bedroom or wrapping a special gift.
