May 7 Horoscope

Being a Taurus born on May 7th, you are characterized by charm and tactfulness. You have a quick mind, which you use to display your sense of humor and whit in social settings. Although you may prefer to keep a small group of close friends, your charm makes you likable and appealing to most. Your charm is paired nicely with your social understanding and diplomacy. Tact seems to come naturally, as you always seem to know the right thing to say.

The paired element of your sign is Earth and of all the zodiac signs, only the Taurus has a fixed relationship with Earth. Your special connection with Earth gives your personality the stable qualities of the very ground you walk on. While others may find you stubborn at times, this is only a result of your earthly inspired prudence and practicality. Embracing Earth's influence can become one of your greatest assets, but you must avoid the overly conservative mindset that plagues all Earth signs.

The Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, but as you were born in the second, Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a generous helping of Mercury's planetary power. While Venus's influence can be credited with your sociability and appreciation of beauty, it is the power of Mercury that drives your mental agility and gifts for communication. Your unique blend of planetary powers makes you the most thoughtful and practical of all the Taurus Decans. You are sensitive and understanding to the emotions of others, which explains why you are always able to protect people's feelings. In love, you take the same caring and dedicated approach. Once you have committed yourself to someone, you are completely open and honest. If the results are practical, you are always willing to put effort and care into your work. This quality will allow you to reach your practical material goals, as you do have set standards of living, which you wish to reach.

Your drive and determination will lead you to success in almost any field, so your greatest challenge may be selecting one. Your prudence would do well in the world of business, commerce, real estate or marketing. Similarly, you may enjoy having a voice as a writer or journalist, which was the case for Tim Russert, who was also born on May 7th. If you develop your artistic eye, you could bring beauty into the world as an architect, graphic designer or artist. In whichever career you choose, remember that you can truly be the best in your field, much like Johnny Unitas, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a symbolic battle between swords and torches.
