On the surface, most of us can probably agree on what makes people happy: taking a great trip, for example, enjoying a warm, sunny day, or seeing a hilarious movie with friends. But each of these is more about momentary enjoyment than true happiness — that deep-rooted sense of contentment and fulfillment that is sustained over time. Inner happiness is based on more than just short-lived pleasures; it even depends on more than strong and satisfying relationships. True happiness comes in part from meaningful connections and work, but it is also enhanced when we meet the challenges that life throws our way — learning how to relax or how to love ourselves, for example, or working through personal tragedy toward finding joy.
It’s rare for a Gemini to be found in a bad mood. Life is just too much fun — too hilarious, too fascinating — to waste on doom and gloom, at least for such an observant, curious and witty sign as yours. If you could just add a laugh track to the running commentary in your head, your own thoughts and perceptions would make a hit comedy show. And yet, your curiosity about and enjoyment in the world around you isn’t quite the same thing as a deep, inner sense of happiness. In fact, for the sign of the Twins, genuine fulfillment requires getting serious — at least a little bit, some of the time. Rather than bouncing from one hobby, job or relationship to another, you’ll find that when you focus, settle, dig in and learn, you’ll engage with life in a brand-new way, one that gives you a real sense of lasting satisfaction.
