Astrology supports the idea that there is a genetic predisposition to happiness (or otherwise). As any astrologer can tell you signs, aspects, degrees etc. run in families.
For example my family is predisposed to happiness. In the fact virtually all of us have our Moons (feelings) tied up with Jupiter (happy) like this:
me: Moon Jupiter
sister: Moon in Sagittarius
other sister: Moon conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius
daughter: Moon in aspect to Jupiter
son: Moon in aspect to Jupiter
father: Moon conjunct Jupiter
cousiin: Moon conjunct Jupiter
other cousins (twins) :Moon in Sagittarius
grandfather: Moon in aspect to Jupiter
nephew: Moon conjunct Jupiter
You get the idea. And this is, never mind all the emphasis on the (Jupiter-ruled) 9th house. Say and think what you will. My family is pretty much unsinkable. We have the Mars Mercury signature just as prevalent. We’re a bunch of overly happy big mouths. So what about you?
What runs in your family?
