May is a month full of hope, happiness, positivity and optimism as we leave behind spring and get within touching distance of summer. If you have had or expecting a baby due in May, you might well be thinking what kind of personality and traits they may have, or what career path they might follow up on. We have gathered up some fun and interesting facts to get your imagination flowing. 

Your Babies Star Sign 

If you are born in May your star sign is either Taurus (April 20 – May 20) or Gemini (May 21st – June 20th). Taurus is one of the most reliable and dependable signs of the Zodiac. Your little ones new traits include; being enthusiastic, determined, kind, strong, unwavering, deeply caring and wise. Your stubbornness is due to the strong will and determination. Gemini’s babies belong to the Air element of the Zodiac and connect all aspects of the mind. They are said to have two different personalities expressive and quick-witted. They are super-fast, super smart, super adaptable and super-curious people. All of this super-ness makes them extremely fascinating to be around. They exude positive energy, always smiling and live to entertain, inform and inspire. A weakness of being born a Gemini is that they can be a little nervous in social situations.

Either way, you’ve got a creative, curious kid on your hands!! 

May Birth Flower

You never really know someone’s birth flower, but I think it is important to know, you never know when it might come in handy. The May birth flowers are lily of the valley and hawthorn. With its delicate flowers and sweet scent, lily of the valley is a real favourite of many! And royal brides love lily of the valley too. Traditionally, lily of the valley is known to symbolise humility, sweetness, happiness and motherhood. All the more reason to fill your house with Lily of the Valley every May in honour of your little one and becoming a new mum.

May Birthstone

It might seem that April got the best birthstone with the Diamond, but May babies get to boast of having the rarest birthstone. Emeralds, fine emeralds that is – those that fall under the highest colour and clarity are rarer than a diamond, as rare as your sweet May baby, you might say. Emerald symbolises love, loyalty and fortune. Emerald is considered a deflector of negative energy and an attractor of harmony, and love. Emerald is worn to bring inspiration and to provide healing, patience, truth and wisdom in relationships. If worn with a diamond, the power of emerald can be amplified.

May Career Prospects

Being born at certain times of the year may influence everything from choice of career to future health risks, a study has found. Unlike other birth months which are associated with other professions (i.e. athletes are likely to be October and September babies can lean towards writing jobs), there aren’t any particular professionals that correlate with May babies. The fantastic news is that their career path is open to endless possibilities. As Taurus are said to be more practical-minded a career in banking, accounting, science, politics and research would be a perfect role. As Gemini’s are more inquisitive and energetic a career in travel, nature or business would be a brilliant role.

Night Owls

Did you know that your time of birth can show if you are a night owl or a day person? Babies that are born in May tend to prefer to stay up late due to the longer evenings. You might need a lot of coffee, be prepared for some late nights with your little one. 

Oh Lucky You 

No need for a four-leaf clover... people born in May consider themselves to be the luckiest, with levels of optimism and positivity much higher than those born in other months. And optimism is scientifically proved to make you happier, and may even lead to a longer life. Pop that Champagne now.

Babies that are born in May tend to be stronger and bigger than other peers born in other months especially winter. And they do not just posses physical stamina: May babies are known for their strength of mind, body and spirit, experiencing the least about of diseases compared to other babies born in other months.
