Taurus

Apart from being obstinate and insensitive at times, a trait typical to Taureans, one more weakness of the people born in May is that they can be easily influenced. Taurus is the principal zodiac sign, ruling the month of May and people born under this sun sign display all the characteristics of the zodiac. Some individuals born in this month also fall under the Taurus/Gemini cusp, whose personality and character traits are influenced by both the zodiacs. On the whole, people born in May are usually very stable, strong-willed and highly self-motivated. They hardly hesitate in offering their opinions and are assertive, pragmatic and extremely courageous individuals. Though good at handling difficulties in life and equipped with a tremendous common sense, these people tend to be extravagant. However, this weakness generally goes unnoticed as these individuals earn well and are financially very stable. People born in May are extremely confident individuals and they tend to spend lavishly, only because they believe that they can make up for all their expenses.
