I liked your “happiness” posts. I would love to see more astrology on this. What do you look at as a happiness base? Jupiter? Moon? Difficult or easy Saturn, Mars, Venus? Probably everything but do you have a standard procedure for a basic happy-meter?
Wondering in the United States
Happiness as it is generally understood is a feeling so I would look to the Moon. Buoyancy is a Jupiter or a Sagittarius phenomena. I would give innate happiness to people with Moon and Jupiter in aspect, Moon in the ninth (Jupiter’s) house or Moon in Sagittarius.
You may also see this affect with Jupiter in the 4th (the Moon’s) house although I’ve not thought about that as much.
Now if you expand beyond those who have happy feelings organically, then I would say anyone can be happy. For example a person can adopt a perspective (Jupiter) that buoys them. People who feel good due their religion would be examples of that.
On other fronts, a Scorpio may be happy because they’ve got a new specimen, an Aries because they’ve got a challenge, a Capricorn because they’re running the show, Virgo due a job well done, etc.
Are you happy? How do you manage it?
