Your sign's age of happiness
March 21 - April 19
Possessing a typically male attitude to life, you’re full of energy and initiative, willing to change things or at least tailor them to suit your needs. You’re not afraid of new activities and often are aggressively enthusiastic when starting one.
You feel that life itself pushes you to act this way, and sometimes fail to understand why other people can’t do the same. You seldom care about people’s attitude to you and your actions, and this may lead to a fatal mistake, as one day you may stop thinking about the results of your actions, too! Try to change this way of behavior, be more sociable, and you’ll easily avoid possible frustration and resentment!
April 20 - May 20
The most notable feature of Taureans is their productivity. On one hand, the Bull can strive for self-development or being a role model for others; on the other hand, he/she can aim for physical fecundity and childbearing. Sometimes Taurus people can turn out rather inactive and keep to the well-known ways and methods. But in case such a person is carried away, he or she starts to strive for new and disregard what’s already known. When they turn middle-aged, the desire of Taureans to stay apart from others may backfire. To avoid feeling lonely and abandoned you will have to understand that being a part of a group is not so bad as it may seem!
May 21 - June 20
A Gemini person is the one who always wants to know more, feel more, and experience more. They need more information, both physical and mental, to process it, develop the mind, and feel mentally secure. But in the course of time this thirst for information gradually disappears, and a Gemini person faces a new task of switching to another way of behavior, a more simple and balanced one. In their later years, Gemini people try to empty themselves of all the knowledge and memories they’ve acquired throughout the life, and the best method for it is teaching – sharing the accumulated information will help achieve peace, freedom, and happiness.
June 21 - July 22
For Cancer, home and family are the two most relevant things that should always be appreciated. But such an attitude to life can lead to negative consequences, because, feeling a part of a small family, Cancer finds it extremely difficult to become part of a bigger family, i.e. society. In youth, being focused on family and personal ego can be justified, but as a Cancer person gets older, it becomes essential for him/her to look for cooperation with other groups of people that can give Cancer a sense of community.
July 23 - August 22
Leo sees the world around as a large stage, where he/she is the leading actor who can often see nobody but himself or herself on it. When you’re young, it’s very pleasant to revel in your uniqueness and feel like a character in a play. But you’d better keep in mind that this feeling may be just a mask hiding inner confusion and anxiety, which can break forth when you’re a mature-age person. It can be avoided if a Leo person learns to live among other people, treat them as equals, and cooperate with them successfully. Get rid of your excessive pride and reveal the secret of becoming a happy middle-aged person!
August 23 - September 22
When dealing with problems, Virgo often resorts to crises, a cathartic experience that purges and results in a celebration of a victory they’ve won over a tough situation. They tend to always watch out for impending dangers of all sorts and unlearn to be spontaneous. The cautious, fastidious approach to life crystallizes with age and threatens to scare acquaintances away. Virgo needs to learn to perceive life unconditionally. Go beyond individual misery; find a collective crisis you can identify with. It will give you the feeling of participation in a great cause, of sympathy and compassion, which are also cathartic, but not in the least damaging.
September 23 - October 23
Libras are often prone to formalism; they tend to worship cultural or social ideals. This community-dependent outlook on life is not particularly good for mature Libra people, who are beginning to feel that the excitement of youth is gone. You need to accept your age as a positive transformation, an exclusive individual discovery. Feeling free from the limitations of society and above the public opinion will take your happiness to a whole new level.
October 24 - November 22
Scorpio is used to feeling happy when they connect with other people, sexual experiences being one of the most important types of relationship. Don’t associate maturity with the waning of these activities or total isolation; learn to enjoy yourself as an individual, to be spontaneous, to look up to a greater guide, like God or the Universe. Become an inspiration for the young, a mystic, and you will be surprised to realize how fulfilling life can be!
November 23 - December 21
Sagittarius always lets God, truth, and universal ideas into their mind very easily. Unfortunately, mature age can blow this ability up to a disproportionate size and make the Archer a fanatic, who takes every philosophical or religious statement on trust if it is loud enough. Young Sagittarian’s love of traveling and adventure can also result in them having no place they can call home. An older Sagittarius should learn to shatter illusions he/she once adopted as truths. Live in the moment; stop reminiscing about the grand adventures you had; try to love simple people with their simple achievements and experiences, and you will find inner tranquility, which will be the basis of your happiness.
December 22 - January 19
For Capricorn, youth is associated with quests for power, prestige, and fame. Mature age puts the blazing fire of ambition out, and the focus should be shifted to things that are within easy reach. Happiness may be found in looking at familiar places and admiring former achievements, reminiscing about the victories of the old times. Now that the speed of your life has slowed down a bit, you will take greater pleasure in finding peace and food for inner growth. You should realize that quality does not depend on how big a thing is, and this will bring you happiness.
January 20 - February 19
Aquarius is always seeking to identify him/herself with great causes and activities. Mature age might take some of that enthusiasm and ability to contribute away. But this will not be a problem, since the Water Bearer is a born leader, creative and powerful, and personal participation is always the best contribution you can make. Middle-aged Aquarius will find happiness in the experiences he/she acquired throughout the years, in the personal development he/she has managed to achieve.
February 20 - March 20
Inborn openness makes Pisces susceptible to influence, be it social, religious, national, or other forces. Pisceans know what is trending on an intuitive level and not only easily adapt to the ongoing events, but lead the way for others, because they know how everything is going to end. Unfortunately, this makes Pisces adopt self-sacrifice as their primary occupation. To achieve happiness at a mature age, Fishes should scale down and engage in simple manageable tasks, which will prove to be very rewarding to complete.
