May 22 Zodiac Birthday Signs – The great potential of your birthday is emphasized by your quick intelligence, ambition, and charismatic ability to deal with people. Generally frank and open, you are broad-minded, with liberal views, and have polished common sense. Since you are also a touch rebellious and get bored easily, it is vital to have your remarkable talents channeled into exciting projects.

When you become caught up in a new project, you develop such enthusiasm that you are sure to be successful. Since you are also a person who cannot fake it, finding the right course for your self-expression is absolutely essential to your happiness.

Being born on the cusp of Taurus and Gemini, you have the special advantage of two major decanate influences, Saturn and Mercury, which highlight a practical slant to your mentality as well as a desire to be informed. An ability to understand people’s motivations spurs you into exploring avenues where you can combine your pragmatic logic with your big plans.

Since you are able to use your persuasive charm and positive vitality to encourage others, you may find that acceptance of leading positions comes naturally to you. You may just need to guard against obstinacy, hastiness, and a tendency to be too talkative or argumentative. This may particularly occur if you turn your confidence into arrogance rather than take responsibility for developing your amazing insight and capabilities.

In early years there is a strong influence from a male figure, usually the father. After thirty, when your progressed Sun moves into Cancer, home, family, and emotional needs start to play a more central part in your life. This influence continues until your early sixties, when you enter a period of authority, confidence, and self-assurance as your progressed Sun moves into Leo.

Your Secret Self
