May 3 Horoscope

As a Taurus born on May 3rd, you are well known for your charming and practical nature. Although you prefer to keep a small group of friends, many people have always found you pleasant and witty. This quality may be a result of your ability to understand others and always say the "right" thing. While those closest to you are fully aware of your charms, they may be less likely to notice your practical nature. You are hardly frivolous with your efforts or resources, as you are always striving for comfort and security.

The Taurus's paired element is Earth and in fact, you have the only fixed relationship with Earth of all the zodiac signs. As is the case with all Earth zodiac signs, your elemental connection makes you realistic, prudent and grounded. As this quality keeps your head out of the clouds, it will play a large role in your future success. Your connection with Earth is special in the fact that it gives your personality the stubborn and stable qualities of an immovable bolder. The influence of Earth does not come without its negative qualities however, as an overly cautious mindset can cause you to miss out on valuable experiences.

The Taurus is under the planetary rulership of Venus, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you receive a generous helping of Mercury's mysterious power as well. While the power of Venus can be credited with your warm, social and art-loving qualities, it is the influence of Mercury that powers your gifts for communication and mental agility. Your unique combination of planetary powers makes you the most socially thoughtful and charismatic of all the Taurus Decans. While others are quick to speak their mind, you prefer to think things through and address all sides of a situation. In love, you are honest and faithful, which are qualities that you value greatly.

There is no rush in jumping into a lifelong career, so take time to sort through your numerous career options. Your business sense and appreciation of beauty could make you a successful real estate agent or architect. Similarly, you may find yourself on a path to design, fashion or decorating, if you take time to develop your artistic talents. Your idealistic nature could take you into a career dedicated to helping others, such as social work or politics, which was the case for Golda Meir, who was also born on May 3rd. In whichever career you choose, adopt the soulful appreciation of life of James Brown, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a porter carrying heavy baggage.
