About may

May is the fifth month of the Gregorian calendar, following April and preceding June. It is one of seven months with the length of 31 days.

May is a month of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore May in the Southern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent of November in the Northern Hemisphere and vice versa. No other month begins or ends on the same day of the week as May in any year. January of the following year always begins and ends on the same day of the week as May of the current year.

History of Name

The month May was named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May. Conversely, the Roman poet Ovid provides a second etymology, in which he says that the month of May is named for the maiores, Latin for "elders", and that the following month is named for the iuniores, or "young people".

may's Birthstone

May's birthstone is the emerald which is emblematic of love and success.

- Like aquamarine, emerald is a variety of beryl, a mineral that grows with six sides and up to a foot in length. Emerald color can range from light green (though there is some argument whether these very light beryls are truly emeralds) to a deep, rich green. Emeralds are also like aquamarine in that the way the color is presents itself in jewelry depends on a good cut by a skilled gemologist.

- Emeralds are most frequently found inside a form of shale - a fine-grained sedimentary rock. Emerald-bearing shale has undergone recrystallization caused by changes in the physical environment such as pressure and temperature. Colombia produces the largest and highest quality emeralds.

may's Birth Flower

May's birth flower are the Lily of the Valley and the Crataegus monogyna. Both are native throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere in Asia, Europe, and in the southern Appalachian Mountains in the United States, but have been naturalized throughout the temperate climactic world.

Lily of the Valley is low growing perennial plant has small fragrant bell-shaped flowers and two large oblong lanceolate leaves and bloom in white and is very poisonous.

Crataegus monogyna, known as common hawthorn, oneseed hawthorn, or single-seeded hawthorn, is a species of hawthorn native to Europe, northwest Africa and western Asia. It has been introduced in many other parts of the world. It can be an invasive weed.

may's Zodiac Signs

The zodiac signs for the month of may are Taurus (until May 20) and Gemini (May 21 onwards).

- Taurus is the second astrological sign in the present zodiac. It is a Venus-ruled sign, just like Libra. It is the sign where the Moon has its exaltation at exactly 3°. The Sun transits in this sign from approximately may 20 until May 20 in western astrology.

- Gemini is the third astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Gemini. It is a positive mutable sign. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this sign between about May 21 and June 21. Gemini is represented by the twins Castor and Pollux, known as the Dioscuri.
