May 15th Zodiac

The duality of May 15th is quite disturbing for those born on this date, for they are set in the middle of something but feel a strong need for everything in their life to be enjoyable and simple. They are here to give the love while at the same time pushing themselves to be too rational to even recognize it. Stuck somewhere halfway, they might miss too many opportunities because of overthinking, or make many of their adventures too static to actually enjoy them.
Mercury is standing here for the other Mercury to talk to it, and the obvious fact is that communication makes a large part of life for those born on May 15th. They will feel the need to connect to their social circle and make contacts that might not have as much depth as they are useful. Practical and capable to make really anything with their own two hands, such intelligent individuals know how to ground any idea that comes to mind. Still, they can get distant from emotions that come natural to every Taurus, think too much and have too many parallel experiences in all areas of life. In search for the right helping hand and right information, they often lose their true sense of mission and their natural sensitivity.
Coming down to number 11, we must recognize the need for opposition and liberation they carry within. The Sun is supposed to connect with Mercury through healthy expression of their ultimate individuality, however different or strange it might be to other people. It is the story of two different characters finding a language to share, special and Universal, however different in their core.

These Sabian symbols speak of nature, along with the human instinctive nature pushing us into aggressive choices. It is a story of the place we need to find, destructive or creative, depending on the approach and width of perspective. While the rider is brave and confidently rides forwards, the park is there as a legacy and something to stay there for generations to enjoy. The two need to be connected in order for a person to find a way to express through creative work and a legacy they will leave behind.
Once they have dealt with their ego and the way they are to express their individuality, people born on May 15th discover their heart to be the main focus point they should strive for. The purpose of their entire existence comes down to the cleansing of emotions in their family tree, and they will often feel the inner struggle between emotion and reason holding them down. They need to find compassion and the point of true connecting with another human being, building the love and the closeness their Sun sign truly desires.
Love and Emotions
When we look at the Sabian symbols and the planetary row of a person born on May 15th, we might presume that they are these "super-humans", rational and practical to the bone. Still, their true striving hides in their emotional world and the element of Water, and they need to work on their feelings every step of the way. They shouldn’t rationalize their emotions too much or dismiss and neglect anger when it comes their way as a defense mechanism and the pool of energy they may use for growth and advancement.
They will have several significant bonds in their life and some of them even at the same time. Although they are reasonable, they will chase the pleasures of life as any Taurus and won’t give up on the ideal of physical closeness. Their relationships will be quite reasonable though, filled with conversations and important information shared, and they need someone to help them hold on to the sense of magic in life instead of sinking too deep into the practical element of Earth they reside in.
What They Excel In
When we speak of talents of people born on May 15th, we must recognize that doubled image of Mercury in their planetary row. We can presume that they will excel in writing and communication, all things related to paperwork and smaller fix-ups and calculations. Journalists, writers and those who always have something to say, if they find their mission using their feelings to understand it, they will move faster and deliver the news more quickly than anyone else ever could.
Blue tiger's eye (also known as the hawk's eye) is the perfect stone for a person born on the 15th of May to find integrity in communication with other people. It will help them discover the courage in their heart to recognize ideas and materialize them using obvious power of will and strength carried within. It is said that this crystal brings good luck to a person wearing it. Supportive of public speech and all ways of verbal expression, it will bring ease and lessen the amount of stress in one's life.
May 15th Birthday Gift
To choose a good gift for someone born on May 15th, we need to listen to them talk. Even if they talk excessively and protect themselves from closeness by too many words, it is still possible to see what they truly desire in their eyes, even if they only mention it once. It takes a lot of listening and sorting out of information given, to choose a really perfect present for someone born on this date. If you aren’t that close or in the mood for training your ears and eyes to fit their needs, go with something useful and smart, something to keep their curious or entertained.
