People born on May 8 are strong-willed individuals who rarely back down. They are totally dedicated to their ideals, often stepping forward as spokesperson for a group. Their extraordinary self-belief is so irresistible that others find it impossible not to be moved or inspired by their message.

They will typically possess powerful convictions, striving to promote these as persuasively as possible. When they are particularly impassioned, they may sometimes come across as too forceful, judgmental and harsh. Diplomacy isn’t one of their strengths but they have the potential to be excellent communicators. Once they have learned the art of getting their message over using gentle persuasion, they instinctively understand and successfully exploit the value of converting rather than alienating others.

Although their conviction earns them the admiration of others, it can also make people slightly afraid of them. But underneath their tough exterior lies a gentle, caring and generous side which—as they tend to regard any kind of vulnerability as a weakness—they will only reveal to their nearest and dearest. It is important for them to understand that strength and power can be found in gentleness. They can sometimes be too strong willed and serious, and often need to be more flexible and take a lighter approach. Between the ages of thirteen and forty-three there will be many opportunities for them to discover their playful side as there is an emphasis on communication and diversification. After the age of forty-three they will focus on emotional connections with others, and again, if they can learn to lighten up, happiness and fulfillment are within easy reach.

With an innate appreciation of beauty, they will often feel a strong connection with the natural world or their immediate man-made surroundings. They may therefore devote themselves to environmental concerns, to preserving historical buildings or simply to improving their homes or local neighborhood. Wherever they decide to devote their energies, the art of diplomacy will make it easier for them to realize their ambitions.

☆ On the dark side:Judgmental, harsh, tough

☆ At your best:Outspoken, caring, persuasive

Those born on May 8 are not at all reticent about expressing their ideas and concerns.

They are outspoken, forceful and opinionated, tending to verbal statements but often adept with the written word as well. They are comfortable when preserving established values, sometimes even reviving ancient ones. Not afraid to take action, they will make use of modern means and advancements in technology, but always with an eye to tradition.

For better or worse, those born on this day have an unusually strong connection to their surroundings. Decisions about the environment in general or their living situation in particular can be of paramount importance to them. But though many May 8 people are deeply involved with their surroundings, they are not necessarily tied to their place of birth. Those who come from small rural areas often venture to the farthest recesses of the globe.

Not only are May 8 people personally outspoken, but can become public spokespersons, expressing the aspirations and wishes of a group. The candor of those born on this day can get them in trouble—they must avoid being especially blunt or abrasive. Unfortunately, diplomacy is generally not their strong suit, so they will arouse antagonism periodically. Those born on May 8 are usually self-assured, however, and since they convey calm and dependability in their demeanor make unusually persuasive individuals. Furthermore, they do not sprout opinions recklessly, only stating their position after giving considerable thought to a subject.

May 8 people are quite fearless in a fight. They will not knuckle under to threats, but will find an effective way to hit back, even when outgunned. Strategy is another forte, so they are not the best enemies to make. Indeed, they may allow a wrongdoer one reprieve, but rarely more than that. Both men and women born on this day tend to be faithful both as friends and lovers, and as parents are usually dependable and conscientious.

In their statements, those born on this day are so assured of the importance of their message that they can pay too little attention to how they express it. The most highly evolved May 8 people are irresistible because they not only have something to say but have also mastered the fine art of delivery and nuance. May 8 people are still more effective if they acquire proficiency in both writing and spoken expression, rather than just one or the other.

As mentioned, beauteous surroundings are extremely important to May 8 people, and they should never lose their connection with nature. Ideally, as homeowners, they should design their own houses, as landowners, landscape their own grounds. Cultivation of taste from an early age is vital to May 8 children and they should be exposed to a wide variety of styles and concepts, otherwise their vision will be limited, and their ideas likely to remain parochial. Ideally, May 8 people become citizens of the world.

Power Thought:Love and understanding can answer all my questions,Nothing is by chance—everything happens because it has to

Numbers and Planets

Those born on the 8th day of the month are ruled by the number 8 and by the planet Saturn. Since Saturn carries a strong feeling of responsibility and sense of caution, limitation and fatalism, the conservative side of May 8 people is emphasized. Those ruled by the number 8 build their lives and careers slowly and carefully. Although they may be quite warmhearted, people with saturnian influences may present a forbidding or unsmiling exterior, and with the added influence of Venus, May 8 people can have a complex emotional nature.

Health Go green

People born on this day tend to have strong views about health and wellbeing, and will often challenge the wisdom of conventional medicine, preferring to self-medicate with supplements and herbs. Although this approach can work wonders for them, they need to remain open to the possibility of seeking advice from their doctor if they do fall seriously ill, as independence and will-power are not miracle cures. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure they eat at least five or six meals and snacks a day instead of three larger meals, as this will keep their energy levels constant and their minds alert. Regular exercise is also a must, as long as they don’t punish themselves with grueling regimes, keeping the emphasis on recreation and fun. Listening to music and wearing the color green will be extremely therapeutic for them.

May 8 people tend to be very hard-working; therefore regular meals are important for maintaining energy levels and a general sense of well-being. Those born on this day often rely on herbal, homeopathic and traditional remedies when they fall sick, preferring them to the "miracle drugs" of modern medicine. Most May 8 people exhibit strong recuperative powers, especially when they remove themselves from city life to healthier and earthier rural environments. As a rule, they look back to their childhoods and remember what worked to keep them well when they were young, but remain open to any practical suggestions concerning their health.

Career Born conservationists

These people possess the charisma and persuasive skills to excel in careers in promotion, negotiation and sales. They may also be drawn to sales, publishing, advertising, law, politics, real estate, farming, and conservation work. Their strong leadership qualities also suit them to management, and their creativity may well draw them to music, writing, radio, and movies, as well as design and architecture.

Destiny To be the spokesperson for their cause

Brighten up a bit. Learn to be more playful, even silly sometimes; laugh with yourself, but without deprecation. Temper your sarcasm and come down off your throne; occasionally admitting weakness and vulnerability is important.
