Why Do You Laugh, By Zodiac Sign

It might sound so overplayed at this point, but laughter really IS the best medicine out there.

I love to laugh. Laughter always makes me feel better, whether I’m stressed out, sad, angry – it doesn’t matter what I’m feeling, I always feel my mood lifting when I laugh.

One of my favorite things about the Internet is how many silly, goofy, and downright weird things you can find. And whether you go looking for something to make you laugh, or you just happen to come across a particularly funny meme, it’s always nice knowing that there are things out there that are just a click away that can make you laugh.

Beyond boosting your mood, laughter can do a whole world of wonders for you emotionally, physically, and mentally. Laughter can improve your physical and mental health, help you create deeper bonds with people, and can even make you smarter. Each zodiac sign has a different sense of humor, so what makes a Cancer laugh might not be the same thing that makes a Libra laugh.

No matter what you find funny, what lifts your spirits, or what makes you feel better when you’re dealing with stress, always keep that close to you. Whenever I need a break from my responsibilities or stress, I keep videos and memes saved on my phone for a laugh. Not only that, but I also have people in my life who can make me laugh, too.

Having people you can count on in your life for a lot of things – including laughter – is much more important than a few funny pictures. Women love to laugh the most and see others who are funny as charming and fun to be around.

While those can make you feel better, knowing that you have people in your life who know how to put a smile on your face is a lot more valuable.

Each zodiac sign laughs for a different reason, so if you’re looking for ways to cheer someone up, this might be a helpful guide to knowing how to tickle their funny bone. It might sound laughable, but don’t discount a good laugh when you’re feeling down. You never know how much it might help until you need a laugh, you know?

Here is what makes you laugh, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The main reason you laugh, Aries, is because it lifts your spirits. You’re the glass half-full, eternal optimist of the bunch, so you’re always looking for a reason to laugh. In reality, you don’t really need a reason to laugh, but it does have a way of making you feel infinitely better once you do.

As for what makes you laugh? Anything that changes your mood for the better, really. You could be having a not-so great day, but seeing a cute dog on a walk or getting a funny text from your sister can lift your spirits and make you laugh.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

The thing that makes you laugh the most, Taurus, are funny jokes. I know it sounds like a big duh to say that, but you’re a traditionalist in the best sense of the word. You don’t need a complicated story or anything like that to tickle your funny bone – just a classic joke (or even a silly meme) will do the trick.

Jokes make you laugh the most because they’re always funny. They’re things that you can always count on to make you laugh, whether it’s a small chuckle to yourself or an all-out belt of laughter with friends. And the best part? You love being able to share your favorite jokes and memes with the people in your life.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

When someone is telling a joke or a story that has a humorous punchline, it takes intelligence to know when to laugh… or if it’s even funny at all. Not all jokes are meant to be laugh-out-loud funny, and it takes someone smart (like you, Gemini) to know that.

The main reason you laugh is because it’s a sign of intelligence. Of course, you don’t shove it in people’s faces that you’re a smarty pants, but understanding the climate and timing of laughter is something that a smart air sign like you would know better than anyone. Don’t let it go to your head.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

One of the most important things to you in life – if not THE most important thing, Cancer – is being able to spend as much time as possible with the people you love. You build your entire life around your support system, and it’s important to you to bond with them in a multitude of ways.

One of the best ways to bond and connect with people is to laugh with them. Even if you’re not necessarily laughing at anything specific, laughter itself is a way to let your guard down and relax. You can guarantee that whenever you’re around your family and friends that you’re laughing it up and making memories.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You love to laugh, Leo. You’re another zodiac sign that prefers to be an optimist over a pessimist, and being able to laugh at anything is an important skill of yours. So, what do you laugh at most? Why, yourself, of course!

Hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself, how in the heck are you going to be able to laugh at others, amirite? Being able to laugh at yourself gives you an emotional intelligence that is leaps and bounds beyond other zodiac signs. It also means that you know when to take things seriously, and when to just shrug things off. Honestly, it makes you a much stronger person to be able to laugh at yourself.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Laughing is fun, of course, but there’s a lot more to the act than just connecting with others and having fun. For you, Virgo, it’s all about the health benefits. There are so many good things for your health that come from snickering, chuckling, and bellowing with laughter that piques your interest.

Being able to take care of your body and mind is important to you, and laughter is just another way to do exactly that. When they say that laughter is the best medicine, they really do mean it. Laughing can lower your blood pressure, release endorphins, boost your immune system, and burn calories. Yes, please. Sign you up!

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Just like making eyes at that cutie from across the bar, laughter is a way to flirt and make yourself look more attractive, Libra. There have been countless studies that prove that people who are engaged in laughter are much more attractive than those who put on a more serious face when they’re out in public.

You obviously want to be seen as someone who is enjoying life and having fun, Libra, so you laugh it up whenever you’re out with friends. Of course, it also helps that you’re a social butterfly and always flitting around looking for new people to laugh with, so the cutie who has been watching you have fun is sure to have some quality time with you and your wonderful laugh soon enough.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

As a mysterious and often reserved zodiac sign – at least, until you find your tribe and open up – you’re not always comfortable opening up to people you’ve just met or don’t know very well. Learning how to be vulnerable is a skill that takes time to master. That said, you still want people to know that you’re interested in connecting with them while you’re learning how to be vulnerable.

The main reason you laugh, Scorpio, is because it’s a form of communication. We’ve all been in a situation where we didn’t know what to say or wasn’t sure how to keep things moving, but being able to laugh with someone is always a good way to connect with them. It’s your way of letting your guard down and putting yourself out there more.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sure, there are so many different reasons why we laugh and what makes us laugh, but those things can get confusing and muddled – don’t you think, Sagittarius? The reason you like to laugh? Just for the heck of it! Life is way too short to not laugh it up with friends, around family, or even by yourself.

Laughter is fun – and you don’t need a confusing reason to make it happen. You’re one of those people who knows how to keep the laughter going in pretty much any circumstance. It makes you feel better, lifts your mood, and is fun. Those are all good enough reasons for you!

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you’re very familiar with putting your head down and working for long periods of time with no breaks. Some consider you a workaholic, but you like to think of yourself as dedicated. That said, you certainly don’t give yourself a lot of time to relax and unwind between projects.

Now, don’t beat yourself up for it, but it’s important for us ALL to enjoy some laughter and fun. When you do have a few moments to unwind, you like to laugh to relieve stress. You don’t want to give up your hardworking personality, but you don’t want to be living with so much stress, either. When you laugh, it’s to relax and get out of your head for a bit.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The main reason you laugh, Aquarius, is because laughter is contagious. One of your favorite things to do is link up with your squad and enjoy each other’s company. And the thing that always comes with hanging out with your friends? Laughter, of course!

You don’t need a reason to laugh when you’re with the people you like spending time with. Laughing with friends is your way of bonding with them and getting to know them better. You like using those time to unwind and create deeper connections with your BFFs and, of course, to laugh until your sides hurt.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Being in touch with your emotional side is very important to you, Pisces. The last thing you want to do is lose who you are because other people are uncomfortable or don’t understand you the way you want them to. That said, you know that having an emotional gabfest isn’t always best for every situation. So, what is? Laughter!

The main reason you laugh is because it’s a type of emotional- and self-expression for you. It’s your way to show others who you are when your guard is down, and let them see what’s important to you. It’s a win-win, too, because you still get to be who you are in a way that makes everyone feel comfortable.
