May 10 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Practical and independent, as your birthday shows, you are an ambitious and broad-minded individual with a fine mind. Preferring to keep busy, you have vitality and are able to make quick decisions. A tendency to disappointment or frustration may sometimes sap you of your positivity, so having a definite goal or worthy cause is vital.
With the influence of your Sun in the Virgo decanate of Taurus, you are articulate and resourceful and often intellectually endowed. This also suggests a skill with criticism or an ability to deal with detailed, technical, or research work. The practical emphasis of this combination also points to a natural business sense or a capacity for analyzing monetary situations.
Usually you prefer to be given a free hand to make all your own decisions, and you dislike taking orders from others. Your ability to inspire people with your great plans and enthusiasm indicates that you have the potential to organize new and exciting ventures. However, by becoming willful and stubborn, you may lose the admiration you desire and become insecure. Fortunately, you also possess a wonderful sense of humor that can prevent you from becoming too self-obsessed or compulsive.
Around the age of eleven, when your progressed Sun moves into Gemini, you are likely to experience some changes and find new interests. Over the next thirty years, study and relating to others will become more important to you. There is another turning point at the age of forty-one, when your progressed Sun moves into Cancer. This is liable to increase your sensitivity, and you may place more emphasis on family and a secure home base. From the age of seventy-one, when your progressed Sun enters Leo, you become stronger and more confident in your self-expression.
DEGREE: 18°30’-20° TAURUS
Although your Sun’s degree is not linked to a fixed star; some of your other planets’ degrees certainly will be. By having an astrological chart calculated, you can find the exact position of the planets on your date of birth. This will tell you which of the fixed stars listed in this book are relevant to you.
Your Secret Self
Many of your challenges may concern financial issues. You have an excellent ability to evaluate situations, which gives you a natural sense of authority, but you can also be a person of extremes. On one hand, you are idealistic, generous, extravagant, and daring; on the other, you can be materialistic, selfish, and too security-conscious. It is important to integrate these opposites and find a balance. Have a realistic savings scheme and guard against extravagant impulses.
When you are detached, you are able to view life from a broad perspective and have a humanitarian outlook, wishing to support others. Your objective viewpoint can translate into intuition, which can assist you in your search for enlightenment as well as in more mundane concerns.
Work & Vocation
Since you are very independent and prefer to give orders rather than accept them, you are usually better in some position of authority or, if working within a group, where you have the freedom to operate in your own way. You often enjoy initiating projects, being involved with progressive ideas, or image making. However, the more practical and businesslike side of your nature may draw you to banking, trading, or stock brokerage. Alternatively, your excellent mental capacities and psychological skills may attract you to teaching, science, or some form of community work. Many people born on this date have natural healing ability, which may manifest itself through a career in medicine or alternative health. Your excellent flair for dealing with people will usually play a large part in any career that you choose.
Famous people who share your birthday include dancer Fred Astaire, songwriter Donovan, I-Ching expert Richard Wilhelm, producer David Selznick, and singers Sid Vicious and Bono.
Like those with a number 1 birthday, you are ambitious and independent. Although you may have to overcome challenges before you reach your goals, with determination you often achieve your objectives. Your pioneering spirit frequently encourages you to travel far afield or strike out on your own. Having a number 10 birthday, you may also learn that the world does not revolve around you and that you should guard against being domineering. The subinfluence of the number 5 month indicates that you are enthusiastic, with strong instincts. Often idealistic, you can inspire others with your ideas and plans. However, if you feel restricted, you can be rebellious and disruptive. A good strategist, you need to learn how to apply your practical skills and use your imagination. Avoid making hasty decisions or advancing without a proper plan of action. Create harmony in your life and find a balance between your aspirations and the power to make them a reality.
• Positive: leadership, creativity, progressive attitudes, forcefulness, optimism, strong convictions, competitiveness, independence, gregariousness
• Negative: overbearing nature, jealousy, egotism, excessive pride, antagonism, lack of restraint, selfishness, instability, impatience
Love & Relationships
Although you often seem unemotional, underneath you have a caring and kind nature. You are happy in the company of those with whom you share some type of intellectual activity. Occasionally you may become too serious and need to develop a more impersonal or detached view. As a good communicator, you get along with most people and can mix well with different groups. Hidden insecurity, however, can be expressed in a negative way by argumentativeness or overindulgence. Partnerships can be especially beneficial for you if there is equal give and take.
