As someone who gives advice for a living, one of the most effective bits of advice I ever give is the idea of having gratitude. Gratitude is an almost divine way of removing ourselves from the whole so that we can see what it is that we have and be thankful for it.

If you find yourself at the receiving end of much good fortune, you can exceed that wonderful feeling by showing gratitude for your gifts. And that's exactly what the most grateful zodiac signs do. Whether we look at them through astrology or their horoscope, expressing gratitude is what they do best.

Some think gratitude is religious; oh, believe me, it's not. One doesn't have to direct their thanks to an invisible deity, as most think is the case. One only has to know that the beauty they feel, receive or take part of in this lifetime is both fragile and temporary, and for anyone to know of such beauty — that's a gift. For the sake of the gift, one needs to feel a sense of gratitude.

Why? Because it makes you feel good. And when it's another person we are grateful for, then that's all the more reason we should show our love and express our thankfulness for them, what they do, and what they give.

Gratitude is a way of getting in touch with humility, and we could all use a bit of humility. This life is harsh and cruel, but it is peppered with unimaginably wonderful moments — for this, we need to be grateful. We all need to be thankful for what's goes "right" as we all know how fleeting it all is.

Some people feel gratitude naturally and are easily able to express it. Astrologically, gratitude is most felt and known by these six grateful zodiac signs.

1. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

No one will go out of their way more than a Sagittarius to show you or anyone how much they either appreciate you or what you've done. For all of their crazy egomaniacal ways, Sagittarians are some of the most humble folks around, and this humility, coupled with their innate sense of gratitude, makes them some of the happiest people around.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Count on Gemini to be the first person to notice what you've done and to thank you for it, even if they are not getting any benefit from it. Gemini is the one who thanks a total stranger for their contribution to whatever is going on. They are heartfelt about their gratitude and feeling this way enriches their lives.

3. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra loves to show gratitude by sending gifts or doing kindly things for friends and family. They are humble people who put themselves out for the sake of others, easily. They are grateful to help others, and this is both rare and beautiful.

Libras never forget that life is a gift and that we don't live forever. They appreciate life and have gratitude for the simple act of living.

4. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Oddly enough, Leo is truly touched when anything good comes their way. I say "oddly" because Leo is known for their selfish "show-off" ways... yet their need for fame and spotlight is an entirely different thing than their need to show and give gratitude. They are humbled by gifts, and they will reciprocate love and compassion tenfold.

5. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus sometimes doesn't know how good they have it until it's gone, but this major life lesson is usually what kicks in the major gratitude they have. Learning the hard way is still learning, and Taurus is grateful for any and all things that keep them progressive and on the ball.

These people do NOT make assumptions that everything is going to go their way, so when it does, they feel profound gratitude.

6. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

While being one of the more sensitive signs, they are also one of the kinder signs, and with this brand of kindness comes gratitude in abundance. If you want to turn on the happy water works, then give a gift to your Piscean friend — they will cry honest tears of joy, thanking you again and again.
