what makes each zodiac sign happy

Happiness means something completely different to everyone. But how do we even become happy to begin with? Do we practice self-care, check our horoscope, or go for a long walk?

Sometimes, happiness comes in small packages. Some people can have their entire day made by getting the chance to pet a puppy on their way to work, or by starting the morning off on a good note by receiving a good morning text from someone special.

Small things like that can definitely make people happy, but does that make them the happiest they can be?

Watch the video below to find out what makes happy people so content with life:

Other people need a little more to make them happy. Maybe their idea of happiness is their significant other planning the most ideal date night. This might include him showing up at your door with your favorite flowers, a dinner at your favorite fancy restaurant, and finishing off the night with a proposal.

They’ve pulled out all the stops and you couldn't imagine a more perfect evening. I think I’d be pretty happy after a night like that, wouldn't you? 

Other people may not decide that they're perfectly happy until they feel they have everything they could ever want. This may mean you have finally found your one true love, you've started a family, you have money to support yourself as you desire, and you couldn't imagine things being better. I know if I had all of this, I would consider myself perfectly happy, too.

Will we ever have all of that stuff? We don't know, but we can hope that we will. Do we even need that type of stuff to be perfectly happy? Who knows? Maybe some people do, while others would be happy with much less.

I think it’s safe to say that just about everyone’s ultimate goal is to be happy in life, no matter what that entails. So how do we achieve this ultimate happiness? How do we know when we have achieved it?

Well, while you can't foresee when you will meet the love of your life or settle down with a nice job, two kids, and a dog, we can tell you what makes each zodiac sign happy in life. So, maybe it is that simple. Maybe all you need to be happy in life is these few things determined by astrology.

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

For Aries to be happy in life, she has to be constantly achieving something. A new personal best on her mile time or a new position at her job, which she worked her butt off for. Of course, achievements do not come without challenges, but she openly welcomes all challenges her way. Overcoming them makes her achievements all the more impressive and therefore more enjoyable.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
