The constellation Taurus has been called 'the bull' for over 5,000 years. In Greek mythology, the white bull was a frequet form that Zeus took when visiting mortals. When Zeus spied the beautiful Europa, he had to have her. Appearing to Europa as a playful white bull, he eventually persuaded her to ride on his back. Zeus then carried her to Crete and ravished Europa. Europa became the first queen of Crete, bearing Zeus three sons. Zeus placed the constellation Taurus in the heavens to commemorate the seduction of Europa and named a continent on earth for her, Europe.
The Zodiac sign of Taurus is the second astrological sign, occurring after Aries and before Gemini. The sun generally transits this constellation from April 20th to May 20th. Those born during this time-frame are known as Taureans. This is one of four fixed signs in the Zodiac, occurring during spring in the northern hemisphere.
The fixed signs do not occur during seasonal transitions, as do the mutable and cardinal signs. The other fixed signs include Leo (August 10th to September 15th, summer), Scorpio (October 24th to November 21st, autumn) and Aquarius (January 21st to February 19th, winter). They are associated with stability and stubbornness
Taurus' glyph or symbol is a circle with two horns attached to the top, which represents the face and horns of a bull. The bull epitomizes power, virility, tenacity and strength. Taureans are ruled by Venus, the planet of procreation, indulgence and art. Associated traits include sensuality, creativity and an appreciation of luxuries. This sign is considered to be feminine, which is associated with inward reflections and introversion.
Taureans are most fulfilled when they are involved with creative tasks. Since they are connected with a fixed sign, they are notably stubborn, but also possess placid and easy-going qualities. Other positive personality traits include being kind, gregarious, stable, dependable, sensual, faithful, brave, sincere, patient, affectionate, generous, humane, trustworthy, down-to-earth, loyal, prosperous and practical. Among their challenging traits are egotism, possessiveness, naivety, self-indulgence and obsessiveness.
Taureans are compatible with others who share an earth sign. They include those born under Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th) and Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd). To a lesser degree, they are compatible with those born under the water signs of Pisces (February 20th to March 20th), Scorpio (October 24th to November 21st)) and Cancer (June 22nd to July 21st).
The lucky numbers for Taureans include 51, 42, 33, 24, 15, 6 and 4, and lucky dates include the 24th, 15th and 6th. Their birthstone is an emerald, and lucky colors are green, blue and blue-green. Taureans' lucky days are Monday and Friday. Their lucky plants include the poppy and violet, cypress and apple trees, sorrel and spearmint. The spade is their lucky talisman, and turquoise is their lucky stone. The parts of the body which are ruled by Taurus include the throat and neck. Taureans are prone to contracting colds, sore throats and laryngitis.
