May 6th is a date that speaks of getting closer to the Sun and puts individuals born at this time in a strange center of attention that doesn’t come natural to them as it might to a Leo. This is a place in a calendar where the connection of these two squaring signs comes to light giving them a chance to reconcile. Those born on this date tend to meet and deal with many Leo representatives in their lifetime unaware that it is their task to heal what is broken between these energies within.

May 6th Horoscope

(Pluto) – VENUS – (Pluto) – MERCURY

With two internal planets (closer to the Sun than the Earth) set in their planetary row, people born on May 6th tend to be much closer to the light and the truth than the rest of those surrounding them. In many cases, they will be the voice of reason and someone to speak the truth in the time of need. The link between earthly and the divine, grounding is the most important part of their personality, and physical senses of touch that trigger an emotional basis for their entire existence.

The sum of this date's numbers of 11 speaks of the need for liberation through emotional clarity and it will connect these Taurus representatives to the story of one more of their squaring signs – the sign of Aquarius. It is typical that as they learn to enjoy life in color and develop flexibility, they start demanding their own freedom that will lead them to a feeling of belonging and home at the end of the road.

Love and Emotions

Emotions are the most important thing in lives of those born on the 6th of May. They will have at least two important love stories to tell, and fall in love very early in life. Parallel relationships don’t go well with the real need of their Soul, but it is something that many of them will try along the way, simply because they look for positive things in romances that don’t make them satisfied, and find fulfillment through the addition of another person to the equation.

In most cases, they need someone to talk to and someone to touch, very reliant on physical contact and sensuality behind the scenes. They need intimacy to be their priority and won’t feel good if they brag or talk too much about their sex life. Once they start a family, they tend to remain faithful and dedicated to it for the rest of their life, and could develop serious psychological issues if their partner leaves unexpectedly.


The exaltation of the Moon in Taurus is best seen in the progress of lives of those born on May 6th. In their search for satisfaction and ways to evoke what they need to be happy, they are to find the right sense of belonging, family, and home. From time to time, they return to their roots as they get older, finding purpose in a place they were born in or in their primal family. Still, it is a more frequent scenario for them to set free and form a new family by the image that is imprinted in their Soul, making them feel the right way after years of learning how they don’t want to feel.

What They Excel In

May 6th born excel in consulting and tactical approaches to relationships of other people. They make great real-estates agents, salesmen and politicians, and rarely choose career paths that distance them from a healthy family life. They make wonderful parents, ready to develop their personal parenting methods and connect with children on many emotional levels. Filled with compassion and a colorful approach to life, they inspire others to love. They could excel in all professions that have to do with beautifying treatments and fashion, as well as natural cosmetics, sewing, childbirth and breastfeeding.

May 6th Birthday Gift

A birthday gift for a person born on May 6th should be colorful and make them feel alive, especially if they are in a demanding phase of life and sad for something they have lost. Choose natural materials, bright and flowery motives, and works of art for their home that are drawn by children or with a lot of rich details. They will like something practical too, but only if it doesn’t remind them of all the work they have to do. Whatever you do, don’t choose anything dark, for even if they like it, chances are they will avoid it for it won’t make them feel good.

Positive Traits for May 6th Born

Loving, creative, good with children, they are positive individuals with a lot of energy to live life to the fullest. Humorous, smiling, and grounded, they search for a place to belong to and connect easily to other people.

Negative Traits for May 6th Born

Unaware of the bigger picture, too focused on problems when they become aware of them, they can get obsessive and go into negative details for days. At times superficial in search for pleasure, but only if their heart isn’t open for relating.

Healing Crystal

Septaria stones spark the personality of those born on May 6th to shine. These crystals will help create balance between communication and intimacy, and make one realize which matters are private and which ones should be talked about. It is a stone for public speakers but also those who have something to hide, mostly creating room in a person's life to set free from toxic relationships until they are surrounded by all the right people, free to share.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Taurus representatives born on May 6th of a year preceding a leap year:

"Head Covered with a Rakish Silk Hat, Muffled Against the Cold, a Man Braves a Storm"

The Sabian symbol for Taurus representatives born on May 6th of a leap year and two years following it:

"An Old Teacher Fails to Interest His Pupils in Traditional Knowledge"

Both of these symbols speak of resistance a man has to face in this lifetime, and while we cannot see the link to Saturn in symbolism of this date, it is obvious that those born at this time have several walls to hit. They need warmth and emotional connecting, company to ease their situation, and will succeed only through joyful and easygoing attitude and wordplay. Although strength is needed to get out of any storm and bravery won’t be lacking here, there is a way to choose warmer and cozier places to inhabit to avoid the struggle all together.
