What is the Zodiac Sign for May?


If you were to look at the people in your life like the months of the year and all they represent, you’d likely find a lot of common traits. People born in winter might find it more difficult to express themselves emotionally, hence they tend to come across as cold.

On the other hand, you may have noticed that, those born in the warmer spring and summer months, are often more extraverted and impulsive. This has as much to do with our earthly climate as it does with the stars and planets.

Let’s look at the zodiac signs for May. You’ll quickly notice that the blossoming environment on earth aligns with the planetary movements in the sky, enveloping people born in this month with a very special energy.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

Think of the Taurus the same way you think of the spring months of April and May. These months are a time of beauty and earthly harmony, a time that tickles all the senses.

Nostrils delight on fragrant, colourful flowers popping up everywhere while birds sing in the trees; the landscapes are changing from drab to lush before our eyes; warm breezes caressing our skin bring us joy and the taste of new beginnings explode on our tongues.

This is the time those born under the sign of Taurus feel at their best and most vibrant, because it highlights everything this zodiac thrives on: stimulating the senses and surrounding themselves with natural, material and decorative splendour.

If a Taurus were to paint a picture of their ideal day, it would involve them sprawled out on a sun-lounger being fed delicious food, whilst enjoying a sensual massage and fragrant oils with a band playing in the background of a spectacular setting.

They like to indulge and take full advantage of all the good things in life – artfully presented dinners, gorgeous clothes, exotic travels and great tunes.

They can come across as needy and spoilt at first, but you’ll come to realize that they are not afraid to work for the luxuries they so clearly crave. Taureans are incredibly stubborn and determined, making them hard workers with a great sense of responsibility.

A strict routine works best for Taureans and ultimately helps them accomplish the goals they set out for themselves. Like the bull it is represented by, Taureans are quick to see red – in terms of visualizing their goals and standing their ground, staying set in their ways.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

What are the first things that spring to mind when you think of the months May and June, the latter of which marks the official beginning of summer?

We think of a certain lightness – light clothes, bright blue skies and sunshine – and a positive energy brought on by that special holiday vibe that comes with the summer months. People born between May 21st and June 20th, carry themselves with this same energy and lightness.

Geminis like to go with the flow – the way you do on a mildly warm, early summer’s day. They’ll go along with anything and everything, and when things don’t go according to plan, they’ll happily improvise. Their flexibility often leads to the greatest adventures, too.

This also makes them flaky and unreliable, however. Constantly going wherever their instincts take them often causes them to flake out on plans or even steamroll other people’s ideas and taking the party elsewhere.

They are warm and open, ready to chat with everyone at the party and not just about the usual topics of conversation – they like to dive deep. Standard conversations about work and supermarket price comparisons will bore a Gemini stiff.

This can also make it difficult for other signs to get their moment in the spotlight on a night out – Geminis are prone to hog it with their shining, bubbly personalities, like the sun throwing shade on a shy little cloud.

This is partially due to their high level of intellect. When they’re not out chatting up strangers and living their best life, they can often be found with their nose in a book. They soak up new information like a sponge and will often surprise you with interesting facts.

Their curiosity easily warps into nosiness, much to the dismay of those around them. They’re always quick to stick their nose in where it doesn’t belong. Combined with their inability to keep secrets, Geminis can be dangerous gossips.

Taureans & Geminis: Living Their Best Lives

Regardless of whether they prefer hot or cold temperatures, Taureans and Geminis cannot deny living out their best lives during the summer season: when the days are long, the skies are blue, and everyone is getting into the holiday spirit.

This is when people born in the months of May and June feel most like themselves – like a flower on the cusp of blossoming at the height of spring and the beginning of summer.

Now that you know more about these signs, we hope that you feel more prepared to gift your Taurus and Gemini friends and loved ones some unique personalised birthday gifts!
