Sis felix

I've seen this phrased used a few times by Machiavelli in his letters to the Prince. The translation seems to be "be happy", but I can't actually verify that anywhere online and my own knowledge of latin is little to none. Is "be happy" an accurate translation? Is this phrase still used?

Yes. It means 'may you be happy/fortunate'. I'm not sure what you mean by asking whether it's still used; Latin isn't used much at all anymore outside the Vatican, except by enthusiasts. But it's perfectly valid Latin, if that's all you're asking.
