Even if they share a birth month, two adjacent sun signs can have very different personalities. Take the May Zodiac signs for example; a Taurus and a Gemini appear extremely different on the outside. But even though they express themselves in very different ways, could you discover some key similarities between the two astrology signs?
Overview of a Taurus
People born between April 20 and May 20 are born as a Taurus. A classic Taurus Zodiac sign is intelligent, responsible, dedicated, and stubborn. They are an earth sign, along with Virgo and Capricorn, which means they’re grounded and sure.
They’ve considered problems from every angle, and as such, don’t feel the need to change their minds or consult someone else. They believe they know the best next steps because they’ve put in the hard work to determine the correct course of action. While they are extremely valuable to have in the office, they can sometimes be difficult to work within a team capacity.
A Taurus thrives when working solo. They don’t have to stop to explain themselves to others. Instead, they can get in their head and be deeply cerebral without others to slow them down. Those born under a Taurus sign are dedicated, so once they’ve committed to doing something, they’ll see that it’s done correctly.
Furthermore, they’re a valuable friend to have, because they’ll use that same dedication to commit to their friend group. They’re honest, and while it may be hard to hear the truth, it will ultimately make you a stronger person for hearing and accepting it.
They will stand beside you during hard times and help you persevere through any tragedy or roadblock. They’ve got your back.
Overview of a Gemini
The second half of the month belongs to Geminis. They are born between May 21 and June 20.
As an air sign, a Gemini changes along with the direction of the wind. They aren’t rooted in one belief or path and will continuously change direction if they feel the universe is telling them to.
Where a Taurus is dedicated, a Gemini is flighty. They’ll change plans at a moment’s notice if they find a better offer, and they’re hard to get a hold of. Their spontaneity makes them exciting to be around, but it also makes them difficult to pin down.
They’re unpredictable and willing to make risky, bold choices. They have a natural curiosity that leads them down new and exciting paths. If you’re brave enough to go down those paths with them, you can only be sure of one thing; you’ll have quite the exciting story to share when you’re done.
The Differences and Similarities of the May Zodiac Signs
When it comes to a Taurus and a Gemini, they have more differences than similarities. If a Taurus is a rock you can rely on, a Gemini is the wind willing to take you in a brand new direction.
Here are some traits that set them apart from each other.
Dependable or Free Spirited?
A Taurus is someone you can always turn to in times of trouble. They are dependable, kind, and responsible. No matter how difficult the problem is, they will use their intellect and resourcefulness to push through until they find a solution to the problem.
A Gemini is not as easily relied on. In an hour of need, it will be difficult to find them, because they’re probably too busy to check their phone. If you schedule a time to meet with them, you can’t be sure they’ll be there. Relying completely on a Gemini is not always a good idea.
Vanilla or Spicy?
A Taurus likes when things are in order and under control. They like going to restaurants they know they enjoy and don’t think a night in with Netflix reruns is too boring. Similarly, they enjoy one on one coffee dates; they don’t need to go ziplining to have a good time with friends.
You will never be bored with a Gemini. They’re always out trying something new, taking risks, and being bold. A Gemini will try anything once. If you want someone to spice up your life, call a Gemini. They certainly won’t disappoint.
