Ladies and gentlemen, it can take a toll on you knowing your man is upset about something, whether it is a work or personal situation. It’s hard knowing that he’s upset and there’s not much you can do to fix it.

Just doing one simple thing a day can make him smile or lift their spirits. Maybe it’s a hug, some comforting words, or just your presence that will lighten his day and vice versa.

But sometimes it’s hard to read your significant other’s mind and you don’t really know what he wants, especially if you’re just starting a relationship with him. There’s a lot of trial and error before you really understand what gets his eyes twinkling.

Happiness can be a fleeting emotion and difficult to obtain if you’re stuck in a down-spiraling rabbit hole. When your partner feels sad, you’ll feel the repercussions too. Even if one of you guys aren’t feeling happy that day, it can lead to arguments and petty stand-offs. It’s important to at least try and avoid what ticks the other person off. Instead, focus on doing things that make him, and you, happy.

Using astrology to understand at least the baselines of what will make your man laugh in glee doesn’t hurt. If anything, it’ll strengthen your relationship because he’ll appreciate you for going above and beyond to make him happy. Remember, happy partners mean a happy love.

Here is what makes each zodiac sign jump up for joy or at least crack a smile:
