May 17 Birthday Horoscope Personality

You have an active, alert mind, one which is original and inventive.

You are not content to follow old truths, but must strike out for yourself, and see what is good and true in any new thought or movement.

You are a natural explorer, whether of things of the mind, or in more widely distributed areas.

You have a strong and independent character, and never follow others, just because the majority do so.

You have a great love of Nature, and a distinctly artistic bent. You would probably paint or play; but all your work will be tinged with the romantic and the melancholy.

You do not quite understand this streak in yourself; for you are usually gay and lively enough.

If a woman, you have marked dramatic ability, and should succeed as an emotional actress.

You have a good speaking voice, when it has once been trained, and a fine personal appearance.

Take a little more pains over this, and cater to the public taste a little more than you do — for remember that, in a certain sense, “fine feathers” do “make fine birds.”

Live up to the best in yourself, and yours should be a happy and long life!
