May 17 Birthday Astrology

By: Jill M. Phillips

Tauruses born on May 17 enjoy the pursuit of excellence. They are intelligent though not showy about what they know; for this reason they may not be perceived as especially brilliant by others. And that's fine, since they are not concerned with how their actions are perceived by others.


Friends and Lovers

Because they have considerable leadership potential, May 17 individuals are likely to surround themselves with more "followers" than equals. They are so strong-minded that to be with other people like themselves can create conflict. In love and romance, they are discerning partners. They know what they want in a mate and will not settle for anything less. They often marry later in life.

Children and Family

May 17 natives endorse the traditional values of family life, and they may act as a surrogate parent to younger brothers and sisters. They are strict parents. Even if they have a loving relationship with their children, they will never fail to emphasize the rigors of discipline.


There may be a touch of hypochondria in the nature of May 17 individuals. They concern themselves with every aspect of being fit: exercise, diet, and relaxation techniques, including meditative states.

Career and Finances

May 17 individuals are well-suited to careers in business and finance. They like to be in positions of authority, yet they are not power seekers. With money, they have an amazing faculty for turning small sums into substantial earnings through wise investments.


Dreams and Goals

May 17 individuals have specific goals and will not allow themselves to be diverted. They are concerned with self-improvement and often count this among their most important achievements.
