Being a Taurus born on May 11th, your personality is defined by your loyalty and patience. Above all, you are devotedly loyal to those you hold dear. In the same sense, your home and personal life are probably your greatest concern. While your family members and friends are appreciative of your loyalty, it may be your gift of patience that they find most admirable. Even in the most frustrating situations, you find a way to keep a calm and understanding demeanor.

Earth

Your sign's paired element is Earth and of all 12 zodiac signs, the Taurus has the only fixed relationship with Earth. Your special elemental connection makes you as stubborn, stable and powerful as the very ground you walk on. Moreover, it is your connection to Earth that is responsible for your practicality and realistic nature. While others keep their heads in the clouds, your elemental power keeps you grounded. Earth's influence will become one of your most valuable assets, but you should make sure to avoid the overly cautious mindset that can plague all earth signs.

The Taurus is under the planetary rule Venus, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a generous helping of Saturn's planetary influence. While it is Venus, the planet of harmony, that links to your sociability and warmth, it is Saturn, the planet of control, that explains for your discipline, order, patience and perseverance. Your unique combination of planetary influence makes you the most disciplined of all the Taurus Decans. When challenged, you complete your work diligently and with great focus. Others would be surprised to know that you do not value praise, but instead are only interested in the material application of your success. Although you may be considered serious in nature, you can display warm and humorous qualities as well.

With your discipline, there are few things you can't achieve, so your greatest difficulty may be narrowing your career selections down to one. Your patience could make you a successful teacher, counselor or mediator. In the same sense, your focus could lead you to more academic pursuits, such as science or research. If you take time to develop your artistic talents, you could find success as a painter or artist, much like Salvador Dali, who was also born on May 11th. In whichever career you choose, realize you have the potential to be a true pioneer, which was the case for Jacqueline Cochran, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a moving finger pointing to significant passes in a book. Throughout life, you have been exposed to a variety of values and spiritual opinions. Remember that you have a choice in these matters and have the ability to sort through these collective values. With reflection, you can discover which aspects of culture and spirituality that you actually hold to be meaningful, regardless of outside influence.
