As a Taurus born on May 16th, your patience and loyalty are amongst your most defining qualities. In situations where most people would be frustrated or annoyed, you have the innate ability to keep your cool. While your understanding and patience are one of your greatest strengths, your loyalty may be your most appreciated quality. On numerous occasions, your friends and family have received your undying protection and defense. With this being considered, it is no wonder why you are so deeply loved.

Earth

The elemental pair of your sign is Earth and in fact, the Taurus has the only fixed relationship with Earth of all the zodiac signs. As a result of your special connection to Earth, your personality takes on the qualities of an immovable bolder; stubborn and powerful. In the sense, it is your elemental influence that inspires your practicality and realistic nature. While others have their heads in the clouds, your connection with Earth keeps you grounded in all your efforts. Avoid the dangers of an overly conservative mindset and Earth's influence can become one of your greatest assets.

The Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are subject to the planetary influence of Saturn as well. While Venus's influence, being that of harmony, explains for your social and cooperative qualities, it is Saturn's power that drives your perseverance, patience and authority. Your unique blend of planetary powers makes you the most disciplined of all the Taurus Decans. You are organized and hard working in all your efforts. Although you are not driven by the spotlight, you are motivated by the prospect of material or financial gain. Seeing as your home and family life are very important to you, security is amongst your most important life concerns. In love, find a partner that shares in your value of loyalty, but also lets you embrace your less serious qualities, as this will bring you the most happiness.

With a strong will and discipline, you have the potential to be successful in nearly any career you set your mind to. Your compassion and patience would be well-suited for humanitarian careers such as medicine, teaching, care giving and advising. On the other hand, your business sense could make you successful in finance, marketing, trade or commerce. As is the world of entertainment alluring, your charm could allow you to do well in media, television or film, which was the case for Megan Fox, who was also born on May 16th. In whichever career you choose, gain inspiration for the long and varied career of Janet Jackson, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a Spanish gallant serenading his beloved. This symbol relates to your individual desire for status. Through your social standing, you can find fulfillment and social identity. Embrace your role in life, as it can give you much happiness.
