May 12 Birthday Astrology

By: Jill M. Phillips

Tauruses born on May 12 are not so much leaders as they are guides, eager to show others the world through their eyes. They appreciate the serious aspects of life, even though they seem to be caught up in living it. They have boundless energy and give equal amounts to both work and play.


Friends and Lovers

May 12 natives revel in a closely knit circle of friends. They generally are the center of attention, and many of their associates try to emulate their charm and good-natured appeal. As lovers, they are not as bold as they would like to be. They often find the love of their life among a group of friends. It is important to these people that a permanent relationship be based on more than simple attraction.

Children and Family

May 12 people draw considerable strength and inspiration from their family backgrounds. They place great credence in family tradition. With their own children, they are liberal. People born on this day expect their offspring to carry on tradition, but in their own unique ways.


Although it may seem as if only their good attitude can be credited for their condition, May 12 people actually contribute to their own good health by subconsciously doing everything right. They eat well and sparingly. They exercise but don't recklessly push their bodies. Best of all, they keep a sound mental attitude and remain engaged in worthwhile activities.

Career and Finances

It may take these individuals several career starts before they can put down roots in what will be their life's work. Business management and the decorative arts are two distinct yet plausible career choices for May 12 individuals. They have a good head for business, yet their artistic talents need to be satisfied, as well.


Dreams and Goals

May 12 individuals don't like to be disappointed and would rather set their sights a bit lower than have to contend with failure. They depend a great deal on the love and emotional support of others to give them the impetus to keep going.
