June 22 to July 23
You share a passion for communication and a need for security, and this can create an intense and stimulating union.
Everyone is a potential luck maker
Lucky people understand that there should always be time for politeness, helpfulness, sensitivity, and caring because you never know who could eventually be of help.
People born on May 2 have a no-nonsense approach to life, believing in results not theories. Although others admire them for their intellectual gifts and ability to organize their original thoughts with logical coherence, they do have a tendency to express themselves bluntly. Fiercely honest, they don’t ever set out to wound others as they are naturally inclined toward cooperation and harmony; they simply believe that the best way to effect improvement is to tell others exactly how it is.
These people are blessed with inquisitiveness and great insight into the workings of the human mind. It’s not easy to fool them and they don’t believe in pulling the wool over anyone’s eyes. They will be respected for their intelligence and honesty but their bluntness may sometimes come across as insensitivity, earning them unnecessary enemies. They should use their intelligence and insight into human nature to avoid this. They also should avoid gossiping; even though this is not fueled by malice but more by their natural curiosity, it can upset others. Respecting the privacy of others is important between the ages of nineteen and forty-nine, during which there is an emphasis on communication and exchanging ideas. After the age of forty-nine they may feel the growing importance of getting in touch with their own feelings as well as those of others.
As perfectionists, they often shine in whatever task is set them and motivate others to emulate their fantastic organizational skills. Although they can work well in a team, they are at their most productive when they are making an individual contribution. This desire to work alone can cross over to their personal life; and their private life is exactly that—private. Despite their reticence, they are at their happiest when they feel supported by friends and family.
These people are, above all, intelligent and caring; if they can listen to the honest advice they give others and apply it to themselves, they have the potential to achieve outstanding success, whatever path in life they choose.
On the dark side
Tactless, demanding, workaholic
At your best
Generous, ambitious, realistic
In relationships there may be a tendency for people born on May 2 to hold back or keep a part of themselves hidden. They may choose to mask this by behavior that is controlling, smothering or self-sacrificing. They often fall for the underdog or people with problems, but to feel fulfilled in a relationship they need to aim for a 50/50 partnership in which both partners give and take equally.
Health Vacations are a must
People born on this day need to be careful that they don’t work themselves too hard in their quest to achieve results as this will cause them stress and damage their personal relationships. As important as their work is to them, they will be more productive if they learn to identify less with it and seek out opportunities to explore other interests. Regular vacations or time off work are a must and they should resist the tendency to work through their holiday. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure they eat plenty of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and get their mood-boosting essential fats from oily fish, nuts, and seeds. Regular exercise is essential, and they will find walking or jogging particularly beneficial. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color yellow will encourage them to feel more optimistic and self-confident.
Career Born surgeons
These people have a marked potential for success in the technical side of the caring professions, such as medicine or scientific research, but also in advertising, media and writing and acting. Social reform, building and management will also appeal, but in whatever field they choose to specialize, their luck and opportunities will often come through work.
Destiny To work for the common good
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to become more aware of the impact their words and deeds can have on others. Once they have become more self-aware, their destiny is to work for the common good.
