Happiness is a fleeting thing. We often make the mistake in thinking that vacationing in Europe will make us happy or having that last piece of cake. We think it’s seeing our weight go down or getting the guy we want.
While these things can make us happy, they won’t keep us feeling like that for very long. You see, often, it’s something else that keeps us in the range of happiness. Something that gets us close to that state but also not quite there, so that we are continually pursuing (and enjoy pursuing) this state of happiness.
There's no doubt about it, Gemini — you need to talk. Words, words, words are your life! You need to be conversing with others. If that's not an option, then you need to read, text or blog just to get those words out of you.
Compliments are something you need as a Leo. But you need more than that too. You need to be the star of the show, regardless of what you're doing. Besides being the best, you also need to have the best of things.
You love adventures, Sagittarius, and you can't get enough of them. You need spontaneity and unplanned days — this is what keeps you happy. Your adventures are varied — you could be traveling one day and daydreaming about it when you're broke.
Relaxation is key for you, Taurus. To have that, you need to have a certain level of security in your life, some form of consistency. It doesn't mean you have everything in order all the time. It's enough if you have that one thing you know you can rely on such as financial stability, a great friend to lean on or the love of your life.
You can get lost in your imagination, Pisces, but that's fine with you. Accordingly, you need time alone to wander. Despite your own passions, however, you can get lost in whatever someone else is doing because you are emphatic by nature.
If there's a hug available, you're going in for it, Cancer. You love feeling appreciated and looked after — you feel comforted by these things. But, you're also one to comfort and nurture others. You love being around family and friends and appreciate the happiness of a familiar environment.
You need your respect, Capricorn. You need people to know that you're an authority figure. Being responsible makes you happy. It also gives you that feeling of being in control which is something you need.
You value your privacy more than anything else, Scorpio. As a result, you live an isolated life in that you don't easily trust people. Despite this trait, you do enjoy having that one person in your life who you can trust blindly. It helps you balance things out.
You know you are unique, Aquarius, but you need others around you to see you as so too. You love that you live life in an unconventional way. Moreover, you love having "deep conversations" with people — it makes you feel like you're more interesting in people's eyes.
You love nothing more than a challenge, Aries. That's why you're willing to try everything and experience a new adventure. You love that adrenaline rush of trying something new — whatever it is, if it's new and intriguing, you're going to try it.
As a Virgo, you are always there for those around you who need you. You "can't say no" to people who need help and you're fine with this. However, you do need to be acknowledged "as intelligent" to continue your work for others. It's that which fuels you and keeps you happy as a helper.
