Zodiac signs are determined by the position of the sun on the day you were born. In May, there are actually two different zodiac signs that can apply to people born in this month.
So what is May’s zodiac?
May has two zodiacs. Taurus – between May 1st and May 21st – the sign of the bull, and Gemini – after May 21st – the twins.
You’ll want to sit this one out as we explore the world of Taurus and Geminis: their characteristics, distinctive features, and quirks.
A Venus-ruled sign like libra, and a zodiac element of earth, Taurus is characterized by expensive taste and willingness to indulge. Like their symbol, the bull, Taureans are dedicated, industrious, reliable, and–you guessed right–stubborn.
Other than the obvious bullheadedness, Taureans have a short fuse despite their love for communication. So, you should pick your words carefully with them. Like bulls, they are possessive and frown at anything that looks like a threat. Their anger is, at best, an ugly sight.
Taureans are suckers for expression, so you need to be as expressive if you want to make them happy. If you’ve got something to say, especially compliments, don’t hesitate. Let your inner and outer beauty radiate and you’ll be surprised at how happy and interested they’ll be.
Taureans don’t dive into love headfirst. They are quite notorious for the slow and steady approach and are intentional about who they fall in love with. They cherish physical attraction, deep connection, and dependability.
As a result, once Taureans fall in love, they tend to stick with it for life. They also exhibit a rather charismatic trait–expressing love rather than professing it.
The most compatible signs for Taureans are Taurus (of course), Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio (sometimes, opposites do attract), Capricorn, and Pisces.
Some eminent personalities born under the sign include Dwayne Johnson, Mark Zuckerberg, Adele, Queen Elizabeth II, and Shakespeare.
A Mercury-ruled sign like Virgo and the third astrological sign in the zodiac, Geminis are notably the “social butterfly of the zodiac.” They are extroverted, witty, and jovial.
Geminis are also quite nosy (bet you are thinking of that know-it-all friend), indecisive, and flighty (their zodiac element is air after all).
This may seem weird, but Geminis are afraid of being misunderstood. As the social butterfly of the zodiac, communication is at the heart of their personality.
So, they worry about how they convey themselves so as not to unintentionally hurt the feelings of others. Geminis also worry about being left alone which explains their love for large social spheres.
The perfect match for a Gemini is Libra, with Aries and Aquarius following closely behind. Gemini and Libra are perfect because they both love having a good time, are intelligent, and are quite adventurous in bed. Gemini and Aries or Aquarius pair get along well because of their fun and enthusiastic sides.
In general, careers fit for Geminis are those in communications and intellectual expression. They include public relation officer, television broadcasters, tour guides, radio announcers, journalists, and project managers.
Some eminent personalities born under the sign include Donald Trump, Angelina Jolie, Marilyn Monroe, and Ye.
May’s zodiac signs are Taurus and Gemini. Taureans are hardworking and dependable. Their zodiac sign is fixed, hence their hatred for drastic changes to their habit. Taureans can be bullheaded and short-tempered, so pick your words carefully when dealing with them.
Geminis are the social butterfly of the zodiac. They are highly intellectual, extroverted, and jovial, so they love a large social circle.
Their zodiac sign is mutable, meaning they are not all that bothered by changes to their lifestyle and are ready to adapt to it. Geminis can be indecisive, impulsive, and nosy, so you should be prepared to deal with these if you have them as friends or a partner.
