May 4 Horoscope

As a Taurus born on May 4th, you are well known for your tact and charm. At times, you may feel that you always know the right thing to say. Your gifts for tact and understanding are appreciated by others, but it may be your charm that has earned you the most admirers. You have a special warmth and sense of humor that others find quite appealing. Despite your likability, you may prefer to keep a small, tight-knit group of friends.

Your sign's paired element is Earth and of all the zodiac signs, only the Taurus has a fixed connection with Earth. Just like the ground you walk on, your special connection with Earth gives your personality stability. While this also fuels your stubborn side, it more importantly makes you powerful and determined in all of your efforts. As is the case with all earth signs, your elemental connection keeps you grounded and realistic in your goals. Earth's positive influences will become one of your greatest assets, as long as you avoid the overly conservative mindset that plagues all Earth zodiac signs.

The Taurus is subject to the planetary rule of Venus, but as you were born in the second, Decan, or part, of the sign, Mercury also lends you some of its planetary influence. Being the planet of harmony, Venus's influences can be witnessed in your cooperation, sociability and warmth. Similarly, it is the influence of Mercury that is linked to your clever mind and gifts for communication. More so than any of the other Taurus Decans, your planetary influence grants you social understanding and practicality. You are very thoughtful about the emotions of others and rarely hurt anyone's feelings knowingly. You take this same thoughtfulness into your aspirations and goals. Although you do not require the spotlight, you have a set level of comfort that you wish to reach. In love, you value loyalty and openness above all else. Find a partner that shares in these values, as this will bring you the most happiness.

Your determination will always give you the opportunity for success, so your greatest challenge may be settling down on one passion. Your prudence and business sense could lead you into banking, commerce or day trading. On the other hand, your compassion could lead you to a career in teaching, politics, or social work. You may find your voice as a writer, similar to Heloise Bowles Cruse, who was also born on May 4th. With developed artistic interests, you could be drawn into a career of artistic expression, photography or drama. If the entertainment world is appealing, you may be drawn to the fast-paced life of television or film, much like Audrey Hepburn, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is children playing on the beach, while shellfish grope at the edge of the water. This is a positive symbol that reminds of the importance of acceptance in a peaceful world.
