May 8 Birthday Horoscope Personality

You have rather a sombre, melancholy turn of mind, which looks on the serious side of life, and seems at times to bear all the accumulated woes of the world.

You should learn to overcome this, and cultivate a sense of humor — even the ridiculous in things. Read comic papers, and see plays which have a strain of fun in them — but not too much, or you will get disgusted, and be worse than before!

One day you will surprise yourself by the way in which you will burst forth, and do something really great.

You have a poetic nature, and should compose excellent verse. You alternately take a great

You alternately take a great interest in worldly things, and again you do not seem to care for them at all.

The beautiful in nature appeals to you greatly.

You would not be at all lucky in games of chance; into which you should not enter. This applies also to business “ideals,” involving a risk. In your case, they would not turn out favorably.

You have a good deal of pluck, and are naturally self-reliant.

If a woman, you should always be well-dressed, as you are one of those persons who do not look well in everything.

Always be careful of your personal appearance, even in the morning; as little things count in the game of life; and the early morning hours tell a long tale to the careful observer!
