What Does the Taurus Symbol Mean?
Taurus is the second zodiac sign and the ruler of the second house. Taurus is all about money. Unlike Aries, who enjoys the game, a typical Taurus personality appreciates the rewards of the game. Consider sensual pleasures and material possessions, as people born under this sign are prone to excess. This zodiac sign is also tactile, liking to be gently, if not sensually, stroked.
Taurus is a comfort seeker who enjoys being surrounded by pleasant, relaxing surroundings. They also enjoy a good lunch and a decent bottle of wine. In all of its forms, the good life is heaven on Earth to Taurus-born people, whether through the arts or their creations (yes, these people are also artists).
Since the early Bronze Age, humans have had a long relationship with the sign Taurus. Many ancient tribes used the Bull’s location in the sky in the Northern Hemisphere as a timekeeper to signify the original Spring Equinox. For religious cultures like Sumeria, Babylonia, Athens, Romans, and even New Mexico, Taurus has been associated with blessing farming and agriculture in general.
Taurus is also the fabled White Bull that Zeus transformed into to woo Princess Europa. The princess was carried across the Mediterranean Sea by Zeus/The White Bull to the island of Crete. They had a son there, “the good king” Minos, who governed Crete for many years and was mentioned in many legends.
Taurus is the first sign of the western tropical zodiac, and it begins on April 20 in the Northern Hemisphere, marking the beginning of the middle and heart of Spring. The sun’s heat and brightness intensify at this time of year, and the days are lengthening as we approach the Midsummer. The Taurus season is when nature’s wealth and fecundity begin to bloom, becoming steady and sustained, giving to the Bull’s archetype’s earthy and generous attributes.
Taurus is the first of the zodiac’s four fixed signs, each of which carries an elemental force of persistence and steadiness during the four seasons’ main phase. Taurus commences in the middle of Spring when the season is at its most “fixed” and rooted, giving to this sign’s grounded, immovable, and traditional qualities.
