May 19 Horoscope

Being a Taurus born on May 19th, your personality is defined by loyalty and disciplined. You are loved and appreciated by your loved ones and this is largely due to you devoutly loyal nature. When someone you hold dear is in need, you spare no energy in protecting or defending them. You take this same intensity to all your efforts, especially your work. When confronted with a challenge or obstacle, your hard work and discipline is tough to match.

The Taurus is paired with the Earth element and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only fixed relationship with Earth. As is the case with all Earth signs, your elemental influence makes you practical and realistic. While others keep their heads in the clouds, your efforts and goals remain grounded. Additionally, it is our special connection with Earth that gives your personality the stubborn and stable qualities of an immovable boulder. Earth's positive influence can be amongst your greatest assets, but you must avoid the overly cautious mindset that all Earth signs are subject to.

The Taurus is under the planetary rule of Venus, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part of the sign, you also receive a helping of Saturn's special power. Being the planet of harmony, the influence of Venus is reflected in your sociability, cooperation and warmth. In the same sense, it is Saturn, the planet of control, that is linked to you discipline, wisdom and patience. Your unique blend of planetary power makes you the most patient of all the Taurus Decans. Even in the most seemingly frustrating or annoying scenarios, you find a way to keep your wits and display understanding. You apply this same willpower to your work, as you strive for excellence in all your efforts. Above all, you require financial and material security and you are willing to work for it. Your aspirations make you serious to the outside world, but lucky your humorous and warm side can be exposed in the comforts of your home.

Although finding the perfect career is one of life's most profound challenges, take refuge in the fact that your natural abilities can translate to success in variety of fields. Your earthly prudence could lead you into careers like finance, banking, business or marketing. If you develop your artistic talents, you may enjoy a career of artistic expression. On the other hand, your human interest could lead you into social reform, politics or activism, not unlike Malcolm X, who was also born on May 19th. If you are musically inclined, your vision could make your a pioneering performer, which was the case for Pete Townshend, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is two cobblers working at a table. This symbol represents the dual nature of human understanding. While one can gain knowledge, it is important remember that the journey to concrete understanding is a more laborious one. Take time to gain perspective and your consciousness and understanding will benefit.
