There is little that escapes the attention of people born on May 1. Blessed with remarkable powers of intellectual perception, they are calm and insightful but often aren’t talkative. When they do speak, their few but well-chosen words have considerable impact because they are based on close observation.

Perspicacity is the greatest strength and driving force of these people. Because they are highly intuitive they notice what is going on around them and also what is being implied; this enables them to rely on their instincts, and then apply logic and reason to establish an effective plan of action. Their calm and considered approach to life can, however, become a handicap as others tend to rely on them to maintain a sense of perspective; this can keep them from pushing themselves forward. They should use their emotional intelligence to their own advantage as wel as others’.

These people need to have more faith in their own abilities. In most cases they are capable of achieving far more than they realize. They are highly imaginative, with natural leadership abilities, even though some may not appreciate their bluntness or their satirical and cleverly observed humor. They tend to like the familiar; change or new situations may alarm them. even if they don’t show that fear on the surface. It is important for them, however, to embrace change as this offers them opportunities for psychological growth. Between the ages of twenty and fifty they have an increased desire to relate more with their immediate environment; this is extremely positive as it will encourage them to diversify, experiment and step out of their comfort zone. After the age of fifty there is an emphasis on emotional stability.

The deceptively calm people born on this day have a lot going for them; they just don’t always realize it. However, once they wake up to their huge potential they will surprise themselves and others with their creativity and the passion through which that creative spirit can manifest.
