"There is much cause" is a formal, old-fashioned way of saying "there are lots of reasons for".

There is much cause for celebration = There are lots of reasons for celebration.

So, your original sentence means "There are lots of reasons to feel satisfied".

Also, tumujerome, you're missing a word in your example. It should be "I don't see that there is much cause for satisfaction".

Oh thanks for pointing that out. It would certainly be more correct not to omit the "that" in writing.
