May 18th Horoscope

SUN – MARS – (Pluto) – MERCURY

This "boyish" combination of celestial bodies in one's planetary row, mostly speaks about strong energies that need to be incorporated in the satisfying image of the material world. Initiative is strong in those born on May 18th, even though their Sun sign might disagree with the moves made. To create a full energetic circle, they should work on something beautiful and satisfying, something to inspire them and make them feel creative and in love. Once their inner state of duality makes peace, they will feel in peace with the outer world too.

Tough lessons come through a relationship with their father, his absence or something in his strict approach that left a mark. Although this isn’t visible in the general note and the first row of this date, the role of their father is one of the most important things they need to incorporate in their personality to be able to recognize exactly who they are.

Love and Emotions

There is always a richness to the emotional world of every Taurus representative, but individuals born on the 18th of May tend to rely on instinct much more than other members of the group. They are to build true awareness of the other side and the person standing in front of them, but the first impulse of initiative is the thing they rely on the most. A bit out of balance, they need someone to talk to closely enough to find ways to explain the ups and downs their nature is prone to, however seemingly stable it might be.

They are passionate, in search for someone to connect on a physical and emotional level equally, with worlds of sexuality and love intertwined much deeper than they sense in most couples. However, in order for any romance in their life to last, they need to stay stable enough and not sink into ties that hold them down, make them feel depressed, or interfere with their plans. Middle ground is a necessity, and this can only be found with someone rational and willing to listen by their side.


The main thing a person born on May 18th needs to learn is how to express their truth among different groups of people. The way they communicate is their most important value in life, giving them true meaning when they need to make steps or decisions that seem too big to handle. As they resolve issues with their grounding they will find their tribe and discover that they belong to the Earth with everyone they share it with. This allows them to incorporate all emotions in their conversations, embracing constructive conflict just as they would embrace any other type of dialogue.

What They Excel In

A person born on May 18th excels in sports, especially those that include a lot of running and give them a chance to be a part of a team. They are stable and reliable, and although they might be very good with other people's investments and money, they will usually turn to something more specific in the field of physical body or the world surrounding them. They could become incredible fighters for our planet Earth and excel in all work related to charity and helping those in need. Still, this needs their mission in place and their physical body attended to and kept safe.

May 18th Birthday Gift

While choosing a birthday gift for a person born on May 18th, you must keep in mind their energetic and their loving side both in one. This might not be an easy task and to hold on to the safe choices, you can go with any gift that can burn, a candle or some incense sticks for their bedroom. Still, if you want to go one step further, you should choose something practical but sharp, something that triggers their inner passion and leaves them occupied for days. Listen carefully and you will hear them mention a technique they would like to try out. If nothing else seems good enough, enroll them in a course that teaches them a new beautiful skill.

Positive Traits for May 18th Born

Able to make anything possible, they are grounded, down to Earth, and ready to take action. Financially stable, protective and strong, it is in their nature to refine their primal instincts and make them work to their benefit.

Negative Traits for May 18th Born

Angry, short-tempered but still slow, they might have trouble with initiative and taking the first step towards personal liberation. They are tied to the past and almost unable to forgive and forget when deeply hurt.

Healing Crystal

A very good crystal for someone born on May 18th, especially if they are in search for something to aid their anger issues, is light red garnet. This is a stone that illuminates dark places and dark souls, and although a person born on this date is typically not dark, their emotional world can be tainted with negative emotions and unconscious restrictive energies that hold them back. It is a stone that will initiate and give them the power to start something and bring their ideas to life as a true practical Taurus would.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Taurus representatives born on May 18th in two years preceding a leap year:

"An Old Indian Woman Selling the Artifacts of Her Tribe to Passerby"

The Sabian symbol for Taurus representatives born on May 18th in a leap year and a year following it:

"A Woman, Past Her "Change of Life", Experiences a New Love"

The experience and wisdom in the feminine that hide in these elderly female characters is something we must acknowledge in these symbols. To add to that, both symbols speak of something that passes us by, no matter if it is seen through other people or time itself, and of one thing that remains constant – love. It is a love for the tradition of one's lands and the love for another human being, or anything else that might come to mind. It is the love coming from the symbolism of the Moon.
