May 28 Zodiac Birthday Signs – With your keen intelligence, idealism, and desire for independence, you are usually happiest when constructively busy and expanding your knowledge. Generally honest and direct, you are shrewd and pragmatic and can be highly intuitive about situations as well as about other people’s motives. By cultivating this insight and combining it with your polished common sense, it is possible to become an advisor to others.
Education is usually important to you, whether a formal course or self-study, and you are likely to continue this well into later life. Mercury, the ruler of both your Sun sign and your decanate, highlights your ability to be youthful, with an androgynous sexuality. Articulate and persuasive, you possess quick comprehension; writing or other forms of communication are likely to play a strong part in your success. Although a resourceful strategist, at times you may be too clever for your own good.
As you become inspired by your many ideas, you often have a surge of optimism and energy that enables you to fulfill your dreams and be fortunate in enterprising ventures. Although idealistic, you may need to develop patience and tolerance, particularly when dealing with people less developed than yourself. Possessing an unconventional streak, you may aim for unusual or daring projects; with an ability to see the larger plan, you have a natural aptitude for leadership. Often travel is likely to play a part in feeding your adventurous spirit and inspiring you.
Having a strong foundation or home to build from starts to have more importance in your life after the age of twenty-four, when your progressed Sun moves into Cancer. This also highlights your personal emotional needs and continues until around the age of fifty-four, when your progressed Sun enters Leo. This will magnify your confidence and creativity, enabling you to become more powerful in public situations.

Your Secret Self
You are active and well informed, but what you may really desire is deep peace of mind. This quest for inner serenity will lead you to explore many avenues of knowledge in your life. Even so, you may find the greatest success through learning to slow down and simplify your life. Reflection and learning to focus are what will help keep you calm and able to deal with your inner restlessness. Inside you are extremely sensitive and vulnerable, though on the surface you appear confident and capable. Leading a well-balanced life can be a vital part of your agenda in order to integrate the two sides of your personality.
Working partnerships are likely to play an important part in your life, and you have a happy knack of knowing the right people. Gradually you will discover that the contacts you consider valuable have less to do with material success and more to do with wisdom. Although you can be very responsible, you become more aware of the value of selflessness.
Work & Vocation
Your quick and shrewd mind is likely to be full of money-making ideas. Being very independent, you need the freedom to work in your own way but are still keenly aware of the advantages of working cooperatively with others. This may lead you to partnerships or team efforts that could be very productive for you. As a skillful planner and organizer, you may achieve your potential in sales, commerce, agency work, or promotions. Alternatively, you may prefer to be of service to others and choose a vocation in the worlds of law or education. On the other hand, you can become a specialist in your area as an advisor, whether on a personal level or in business. An ability to articulate your ideas and your love of knowledge or wisdom may draw you to the world of writing, advertising, or publishing. You are also likely to have an interest in the study of philosophy, psychology, or religious thought. Generally, you may find more satisfaction in professions that use your fine mind, but you may have to avoid a tendency to procrastinate or not develop any interest in depth.
Famous people born on your birthday include writer Ian Fleming, singers Gladys Knight and Kylie Minogue, British prime minister William Pitt, and musician John Fogarty.
Independent and idealistic, with determination and a pragmatic approach, you are often a law unto yourself. Like a number 1 individual, you are ambitious, direct, and enterprising. An inner conflict between wanting to be independent and wanting to be part of a team is also indicated. Always ready for action and new ventures, you courageously take on life’s challenges, and with your enthusiasm you can easily inspire others, if not to join you at least to support you in your latest venture. With a number 28 birthday, you have leadership abilities and rely on your common sense, logic, and clear thinking. Although you can be responsible, avoid being overly enthusiastic, impatient, or intolerant. The subinfluence of the number 5 month indicates that you are shrewd, with strong instincts. You benefit from becoming more supportive or aware of the needs of others. Do not isolate yourself; share your knowledge and expertise by being part of a group or working cooperatively toward the greater good of society.
• Positive: compassionate, progressive, daring, artistic, creative, idealistic, ambitious, hardworking, stable home life, strong-willed
• Negative: daydreamer, unmotivated, lack of compassion, unrealistic, bossy, lack of judgment, aggressive, lack of confidence, too dependent on others, pride
Love & Relationships
Idealistic yet independent, you often have a clear idea about what you want out of relationships. Yet a certain restlessness or a daring enthusiasm may create problems for you, especially if you are impatient or think you can hurry people along. Wanting someone out of the ordinary also suggests that you can be attracted to unusual relationships, such as with people from foreign countries. Nevertheless, you retreat quickly from unsuitable relationships and with your practical sense seldom truly lose your heart. You may be more likely to express your opinions than your feelings, but once you find someone who positively stimulates your mind, then you can become loving, loyal, and supportive.
