Personality Traits & Characteristics of Famous People Born on May 4

Personality
People born on this day keep their imaginations on a tight leash. Such people heavily rely on practicality and believe in only things that they can see or physically sense. They do not trust anything that seems illogical or irrational. This fixed earth sign is heavily cautious in its approach to life, and as such, stability is a highly valued quality - especially for a May 4 person as the number four is the number of reality, logic, and reason. Bringing form out of chaos is what such individuals live for and are very well at. However, they can become heavily entrenched in their opinions and can become surly when challenged.

Health
People born on this day need to pay attention to their throat, neck, ears, and thyroid gland to ensure optimal health. As lovers of good food and luxurious comforts of all kinds, thirty minutes of daily cardiovascular exercise such as walking is a must to offset any overindulgence. Also, it would help them attain a steady equilibrium.

Finance
May 4 people are very good at putting their money away for a rainy day, despite their penchant for luxury purchases. Only after painstaking research would a May 4 person invest his/her money, which makes these individuals virtually immune to con artists and shady schemes.

Career
As May 4 people are extremely reliable, they make excellent government employees, office managers, and administrators. These individuals are interested in the finer things in life. As such, pursuing careers in architecture, restaurant ownership, and real estate suits them.

Relationships, Marriage and Children
While May 4 people are sensuous, they are also tenacious once committed to someone. Be warned: someone born on May 4 is not a person to stray away from. He or she can become the most jealous and possessive person, maybe more than you could ever handle. Once committed, a May 4 individual takes the relationship to heart and does ever think about breaking the same. As such, divorce is never an option for these individuals. They work hard to make things work in a relationship. In terms of parenting, May 4 people make very conscientious parents, ensuring their children have consistent structure and discipline.
