The mood elevator each zodiac needs.

Did you know that there are ways to boost the mood of each zodiac sign? That's right! You may not think that knowing your zodiac sign or the sign of other people is very helpful, but you’d be surprised at how much astrology and horoscopes can tell us about ourselves and the people we encounter.

There are times when we get so wrapped up in our own selves and problems that we ignore what the people closest to us are going through. In a relationship, your partner may need you to help lift their spirits and put them in a good mood.


None of us react the same way to everything. What may work as a mood-booster for you may not work for somebody else. It can get confusing when all you want is to help your partner feel better and see things in a more hopeful way, and none of the things you’d usually do for yourself work for them.

While it’s good to feel your negative feelings, it’s also good to not dwell on them too long so they make you feel depressed and without energy. If you can help yourself or someone else to feel better and happier, why wouldn't you? Here’s how you can get the zodiac signs in a good mood.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

If you want to get an Aries in a better mood, mix things up and surprise them. Take them out on a spontaneous date or get them tickets to a basketball game. Anything that shakes up the routine will get them in a good mood.

Aries love spontaneity, especially when it comes from someone other than themselves. Do things you've only discussed doing in bed, explore, and work on some new moves. Aries will be happier in no time, especially if that activity involves moving their body.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)



The best way to get Taurus in a better mood is to appeal to their senses. Pick up some flowers on the way home from work, make them a playlist with all their favorite music, light some candles, cook their favorite food if they've had a particularly taxing day, and make sure to touch them.

Taurus are very sensual and touching helps to relax them and allows them to release some of the stress they're feeling.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Sometimes, all Gemini needs to get in a good mood is to feel as if they're being both seen and heard, so give them your undivided attention. Don't pretend to be listening to them while answering emails on your phone; be present and really hear what they're saying.


If you sense they need a response, give it to them, but if they don't, just listening to them with an open heart will be exactly what they need to feel better.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

One way to make Cancer go from a foul mood to a good one is to let them know they're appreciated. Cancers tend to be givers and are there for everybody else. They rarely put their own selves on the list, but no matter how caring they are, they sometimes need the validation one gets when they feel people are grateful for their presence.

You can send them a well-chosen card, call them on the phone, or even just send a nice message with no prompting from them.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

When you want to give a Leo a mood boost, make them the center of attention. If they have a talent, set up a way for them to showcase it. If they're a secret singer, set up a karaoke party.

Once they've belted out their favorite song and received a standing ovation, they'll feel much better. Or, if they're more artistically inclined, take them to a cooking or painting class — anything that shows off their secret talent.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

If you want to boost Virgo's mood, buy them something they've wanted for a long time but were too frugal to buy for themselves. Yes, they'll protest and try and make you take it back, but secretly they'll be pleased.

Virgos aren't very self-indulgent and often go without, so it's nice to give them a spontaneous present of something that they wanted, especially if you don't want anything in return and you're not using the gift as a way to manipulate them.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras don't enjoy being in a bad mood, so it doesn't take much to get them out of it. If you want to improve Libra's mood, compliment them.

You can praise them for something they've achieved, for their talents, or even for their appearance. They like have positive affirmations, especially from other people, because it helps them reset and go back to being hopeful and grateful.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)



Scorpios feel things intensely, so one of the best ways to lift their mood is to make them laugh. This will not only relax them, it will help them to not take everything so seriously.

Besides making them laugh, you can find some simple activity like a walk in the park or a swim in a lake to remind them of the benefits of simple pleasures. If you help Scorpio to take an emotional break, they'll start to unwind and get in a better mood.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

New things, places, and experiences always put Sagittarius in a good mood. If you can't swing two tickets to Cairo, then plan a trip together. Just imagining going to a new place will get Sagittarius feeling excited.


Another way to perk them up is to ask them to tell you about their travels and show you pictures. This is definitely an easy way to get them to their happy place, remembering the fabulous experiences they've had in the past and planning ones to have in the future.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns have a difficult time letting all their frustration, anger, and annoyances out, so in order to help get them in a better mood, allow them to vent. They may not need your advice or suggestions on how to make a bad situation better, they may just need to get their issues off their chests.

Capricorns hate to disappoint people and tend to feel as if they need to put on a brave face, but they're not robots; they have feelings too and sometimes they need to unload them.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)



If you want to help put Aquarius in a better mood, give them some alone time. This may seem counterintuitive since this sign loves to be around people, but they also crave being alone and having time to think without being distracted by another person.

Encourage them to spend their time alone in nature, going to the beach or hiking in the mountains. There's something about being outdoors and by themselves that helps Aquarius feel better and happier.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces can get into a funk, so to help lighten their mood, make some romantic gestures: bring them a bouquet of flowers that you picked yourself, write them love notes and hide them around their house, or even do a household chore (it's romantic for some people) that you know they despise.


Any little token of love will delight them, and the fact that you were intuitive enough to know what they needed will put them in a great mood.
