You have strong humanitarian overtones, and the typical Taurus traits — tenacity and loyalty — shine brightly in serving those goals. You might become a defense lawyer, join Doctors without Borders, or find a career that allows you to fund good causes. A birth number of 5 connects beautifully with these goals, offering strength, faith, adaptability, and quick reflexes to rise to any occasion.
Your hobbies typically reflect charitable goals. Rather than go to the game on Sunday, you'll volunteer at a soup kitchen. This is relaxing and personally fulfilling even though others don't seem to completely share your enthusiasm or understand it fully. Yours is a truly kind heart, sympathetic and fiercely courageous. There's no room in your life for bias, but be careful that others don't abuse your good will.
You have an insatiable hunger for romance. Right next to the idealistic image of how the world “could” be, you house an image of true love (that's sometimes a bit hard to live up to). You balance those images with evenhandedness so long as your lovers show sensitivity and devotion.

How did Mother's Day begin?
In the late 1800s a woman named Anna Jarvis organized a group of mothers to help direct people's attention to the poor living conditions in her neighborhood. This was called “mothers work day.” Fifteen years after that first effort, Julia Howe (writer of the Battle Hymn of the Republic) organized a mother's peace rally. These two events laid the groundwork for Anna Jarvis's daughter to start the campaign for a national mother's day upon the death of Anna in 1905. It was 1908 when Mother's Day was first observed by presidential proclamation. It was nationally recognized by Congress in 1914.
