People born on May 17 are forward-thinking and hard-working, which can bring them wealth.
They can also make a career through marriage. They are patient, with great skills and the ability to adapt to circumstances. They lead a fairly simple life. They have many original projects and good ideas. They have more advantages than they can use. They are eloquent and persuasive people.
Their profession may be quite eccentric or unusual, but they will be successful in it. They will be successful in gardening, agriculture, and mining. What should they watch out for? They must be careful with outbursts of anger and envy. How to raise a child born on this day? They are willful, and when left alone, they become reluctant and insensitive. They have great vitality, and sometimes suffer from overeating. A strong sensuality develops early in them. They should be taught courtesy and sympathy for all living things, and cruelty should be discouraged.
