The May 22 zodiac sign is Gemini. The Gemini season officially kicks off on May 21, but being so close to this transition means that those born on this day have their birthday on the “cusp” between the Taurus and Gemini sign.
If you aren’t sure the details of your zodiac birthday (and what it represents) or your star, sun, and moon signs, we have a detailed birth chart (natal chart), that will walk you through the specifics of your birthday.
The Gemini-Cancer Cusp
The Taurus-Gemini Cusp, aka the Cusp of Energy, spans from May 17 until May 23. People born during this time share some personality traits from both signs. They tend to be smart, socially outgoing, and full of energy.
But let’s get back to the topic at hand, those born on May 22. It’s important to remember that those born on May 22nd are Gemini at their core, despite the influence or pull they feel from the Taurus zodiac sign.

Geminis can be restless and impatient. They may have a hard time focusing on one task at a time, which is why they tend to bounce from job to job. They love being the center of attention by telling stories or performing in front of a crowd, but this also means that Geminis are easily bored when they are in the background.
Geminis are also very indecisive, even though they can hold several different conversations at once. They may think themselves out of a job or relationship because they can’t decide what is best for them. Gemini tend to have trouble saying no and often find themselves stuck in bad situations due to their indecision.
Geminis can feel a need to please everyone around them. They may have a hard time making decisions because they don’t want to upset others.
That being said, Geminis also have difficulty asserting themselves and saying no to people. This can lead to emotional manipulation as well as exhaustion from always having to be the one who “gives in.”
