My birthday astrology:    A Taurus born on April 25 is a seeker of life’s deepest mysteries. They possess great spirituality, which gives them amazing strength of character. April 25 natives take life as it comes. When disappointments come their way, they see the challenges as valuable learning experiences.  April 25 individuals are introspective loners who don’t need to find themselves through relationships. Because of their spiritual nature, they may remain celibate for long periods of time when not involved in a relationship.  A great many unresolved issues from childhood are likely to influence the adult lives of April 25 people. They seek to heal their emotional wounds by raising a family. This can prove helpful therapy for them, as long as they understand that forgiveness for the past must precede healing in the future.  April 25 people do not have the robust health generally associated with Taureans, and they have a tendency to catch colds easily. Mineral water and herbal tea will help flush toxins from the system.  April 25 people respond to music’s natural resonance, which gives them physical grace and a natural sense of rhythm. They often become talented dancers, choreographers, figure skaters, musicians, and singers. Although intelligent, they are not advised to handle a significant amount of money without professional advice.  The chief aim of April 25 individuals is to understand themselves. Success has little to do with accumulating worldly possessions or praise. It is the intangibles of life that concern April 25 people. In their quiet way these people can make extraordinary spiritual mentors.  You should avoid: Tension, telling a hurtful truth, worrying about death.
