As a Taurus born on May 1st, your personality is defined by tact, charm and practicality. Your social skills allow you to always know when to say and do the right thing. Your gifts for communication are paired nicely with your innate charms, which people are often drawn to. While your charms are widely known, those closest to you say your practicality may be your best kept secret. In all matters of life, especially your work, you prefer to take a practical and thoughtful approach.

Earth

Your sign's paired element is Earth and in fact, of all 12 zodiac signs, only the Taurus has a fixed relationship with Earth. Your special connection with Earth gives your personality the stubborn and stable qualities of an immovable boulder. More so, it is your link to Earth that keeps you grounded and realistic in your goals and efforts. The prudence of Earth can play a key role in your future successes, as long as you do not allow your conservatism to evolve into close-mindedness.

Venus is the ruling planet of the Taurus, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a helping of Mercury's planetary power. While Venus, the planet of harmony, is responsible for your warmth, sociability and appreciation of beauty, it is Mercury's power that links to your cleverness and mental prowess. More so than any of the other Taurus Decans, your planetary influence makes you charismatic and diplomatic. You have a gift for understanding and would rarely hurt another person's feelings on purpose. Although you are not shy, you may hesitate to become close to a wide variety of people. With those select few that you hold close, you are open and honest. This is especially true in love, as you are very loyal to your romantic partners. Your greatest strength may be your hard working nature. While others prefer praise, you are content simply knowing that a job was done correctly.

With your many talents and abilities, you have the potential to be successful in any career that you choose. Your earthly sense may take you to a career that requires travel, such as international business or traveling sales. In the same sense, your practicality may do well in banking or real estate. If you are musically inclined, your creativity and charm could make you an energetic performer, which was the case for Tim McGraw, who was also born on May 1st. The appealing world of entertainment could lead you into media or radio, much like Kate Smith, another of your celebrity birthday twins.
