It is widely recognized that the sign of Gemini might be linked with ADHD and all sorts of problems with focus and dedication, but those born on May 23rd have a real challenge to keep their direction clear. They will almost inevitably get lost in their path, until they discover the real mission they always wanted to follow on their road to personal expression.

May 23rd Horoscope


Expansion and faith in the goodness of humankind make a person born on May 23rd stand out as a special individual. They are mellow and giving, ready to talk down any enemy and help those who need help. Although this may sound divine and something to admire, it is in fact their weakness too, for they don’t know when to stop and don’t seem to understand the scales of giving and receiving that reside in their hearts. The love they share with the world moves forwards even if they don’t feel loved themselves, and too much talk will easily pull them into the drain of emotion that might leave them feeling empty, in expectation, and hurt by those they care for.

Their personality needs to change on a deep level and the second row shows that there is something in their initiating, creative side to bury so they can move on from repetitive patterns. The image they create out of obvious "goodness of heart" might be just an image. As they let it go, they will discover their true Self, their Soul, and what they need to do to be honest with themselves and the world around them.

Love and Emotions

It is the growth of emotion that might trick a person born on the 23rd of May into love that fails and disappoints. Their expectations are in sync with their focus and their need for sharing, and others won’t always respond in a way they find natural in their own approach to relationships. Emotions in their heart are vast and hard to control, always expanding and finding a way to survive, and this could push their changeable nature into many different relationships, encounters with little emotion, and a sort of a "Zeus syndrome" that will make them feel like they have to conquer everyone they are the least bit attracted to.

Love life of a person born on this date may be incredibly rewarding but only if they find reciprocity of giving and receiving love with only one person, for this can help them finally find focus. This can be achieved by accepting their role in the world that manifests through platonic relationships and friendships, while romance carries its veil of intimate secrecy that not everyone is allowed to share. As they gather knowledge, they will realize that family they wish to create asks for moral calls that give a sense of energetic focus to everything in their life, including romance.


The Sun carries the sole purpose in lives of individuals born on May 23rd, and they are to come to self-recognition, respect, and instead of compromises – unique solutions that cover everyone's needs. They are the unifiers of the calendar, those who have a talent to discover the middle ground between any two extremes. This gives a fine glow to their Gemini nature too, as it shows that with enough faith and direction in life, one has a chance to connect all dualities within and on the outside, with human nature intact, evolving through oneness.

What They Excel In

Individuals born on May 23rd excel in learning and teaching. They will usually choose studies that make them strive even higher, always ready for progress in life even in the darkest of times. Optimistic and focused on faith they are to discover over common sense, they are Gemini representatives born with a talent to bring their visions down to Earth if they put their mind into it and make bold, specific steps.

May 23rd Birthday Gift

To choose a birthday gift for a person born on May 23rd, we have to acknowledge their real expectations and see that they might not settle for what we first had in mind. Their appetites are big, not because they are on a chase for expensive presents, but because they want other people to put enough thought in them just as they would if the roles were reversed. Create something with your hands, write, express through any form of art you think of, or do anything that will show the effort you put into it.

Positive Traits for May 23rd Born

Positive and always wearing a smile, they are filled with knowledge, wisdom, and know how to find their mission in life if they don’t chase for too many irrelevant things along the way.

Negative Traits for May 23rd Born

Distracted, lost, seeing the world from an unrealistic perspective and strangely tied to matters of the future when they should be living in the now. They could plan their life away, living in their mind instead of the real world they try to run away from.

Healing Crystal

Blue hemimorphite will enhance communication in Gemini representatives born on the 23rd of May, but mostly focusing them on the guidance they are to get from the upper spheres. As a stone that aids spiritual growth, it will bring light into their aura and work well with the throat and the third eye chakras, improving their contact too. This stone will help bring joy into one's life, healing relationship issues and the lack of balance in their tendency to give all they have to those who don’t give much back.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Gemini representatives born on May 23rd of any year that isn’t a leap year:

"Santa Claus Furtively Filling Stockings Hanging in Front of Fireplace"

The Sabian symbol for Gemini representatives born on May 23rd of a leap year:

"The Garden of the Tuileries in Paris"

Both of these symbols are statements of a kind, one of them speaking of a non-existent man that everyone wants to believe in, able to cover the entire Earth with presents in one night, and the other of something grand and magnificent standing as a unique place in the world. There is something magical and inspiration in these symbols and even though they seem to present simple things we see on TV, it is the special glow of the two combined that shows hard work can make anything possible. Beliefs are strong in those born on this date, for they know that miracles are there for the taking and can be created everywhere around us to serve as inspiration to many.
