From Friday, May 17 to Monday, May 20 in the late afternoon, those celebrating their birthdays are known as Taurus, but because they are so close to the cusp of Gemini they will have many of that sign’s traits.

This air sign is a born communicator and so they are extremely good at telling tales, writing books or traveling the world.

A Gemini is never at a loss for words, so they naturally love to talk. You can always tell a Gemini in a crowd. Just look for someone telling long and exciting tales of travel, books or love.

Gemini is known as the “Butterfly of the Zodiac” because of their ability to bounce from one situation to another. This makes them quick thinkers who become bored very easily. To have a good friend who is a Gemini you must want to hear tales or join them in their adventures.

Certainly one of the outstanding traits of a Gemini nature is their sense of humor. They find fun in almost anything and really enjoy a good laugh. And the stories they tell are often beyond description. They are certainly the best storytellers ever.

Tiny Fey the well-known television writer and star is a deluxe example of a Gemini. Her sense of comedy and writing has made her a very successful woman in the entertainment world.


People born this week: Grace Jones, May 17, 1952; Tina Fey, May 18, 1970; Malcom X, May 19, 1925; Cher, May 20, 1946; Mr. T, May 21, 1952; Apollo Anton Ohno, May 22, 1982; Douglas Fairbanks, May 23, 1883; Bob Dylan, May 24, 1941.


The next lunar eclipse will happen on Saturday, May 25, at 4 degrees of Sagittarius during the full moon. You can be sure we will start feeling the influence by midweek on Wednesday, May 22. Also, Gemini people should look for some excitement in the next month because Mars, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter will all be in Gemini offering you an open door to new and bigger opportunities.
