Smiling is good for us. Besides being an involuntary response to things that are funny or make us happy, smiling can be a very positive action. And when it comes to how to make each zodiac sign smile, there are certain things that make them happy.

It could be a positive and uplifting horoscope, something going their way, or a compliment from their partner, but no matter what it is, we can always use astrology as a guide. 

If you’re feeling down, an easy way to feel better is simply to smile. The act of smiling can automatically elevate our mood and it’s known to reduce stress.  Smiling can make other people feel better too.

When you smile, you have an air of self-confidence which can make you appear successful. It’s not a guarantee that if you smile at the office you'll get promoted, but it certainly couldn't hurt.

Since smiling can help you stay feeling positive, it’s good to know what kinds of things can help trigger a smile when you may not be feeling spontaneously smiley. Here's how to make each zodiac sign smile in their own unique way.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Winning a challenge, especially when the Aries competitor is someone who is better at the sport or game, makes Aries smile. Aries love to win and it always makes them smile, especially when it's not a given that they will win.

They don't like to win by default or have the win be too easy, they want to win it fair and square, and because they've got skills.
