Taurus is one of the oldest constellations to be recognized in the night sky, dating all the way back to the early bronzed age when it marked the Sun’s location during the spring equinox. In Greek mythology, the constellation is associated with Zeus, who transformed himself into a magnificent white bull to get close to Europa, the beautiful daughter of the Phoenician King. Europa soon took notice of the striking bull, she admired his beauty and, when she sat on his back he rose and headed for the sea. Zeus carried her all the way to the island of Crete where he revealed his true identity and lavished the princess with gifts. They eventually had 3 sons together and Zeus later commemorated the bull by placing it among the stars where you can easily spot it just to the west of Orion the hunter.
The symbol for Taurus is the bull. The bull is a symbol of strength, tenacity, and power. When left alone a bull will happily graze; but, I know you’ve all heard the saying “You mess with the bull, you’ll get the horns” Well, that little saying accurately describes a Taurus once they’ve reached their breaking point. A Taurus’s personality is mostly calm and peaceful with an immense patients even in the face of problems or difficulty. However, when their anger is provoked, their temper can be wicked. Bull-headed and stubborn are the stereotypical traits given to our bovine friends but a Taurus has so much more to offer than those less than par descriptions.
Bulls like to keep all four hooves firmly planted on the ground…they are, after all, an earth sign. Earth signs are the most grounded people on the planet…you know, the ones who always keep it 100% real. They are known to be stable and unwavering, so if you find yourself in a Taurus’s friend circle consider yourself lucky because they will be the most loyal friend you have. But not only are they loyal, being rooted in the earth allows a Taurus to grow slowly, steadily, and surely making them one of the lest impulsive signs in the zodiac. A Taurus prefers to observe and respond rather than react.
In classical astrology, Venus was assigned rulership of Taurus. Taurus was thought to be the nocturnal home of Venus, allowing her to harness and materialize all of her earthly gifts and bounties. Among these are affection, attraction, good food, and artistic treasures. Those born with Venus in Taurus will likely be drawn to creating, accumulating and enjoying these gifts of Venus. They may also have a tremendous dedication to the arts and/or relationships. When it comes to Venusian matters of friendliness, pleasure, and often indulgence, a Taurus will take to these qualities naturally.
Have you been feeling irritable and impatient? That’s because the Aries sun has been wreaking havoc on your energy since the month has started. Don’t fret, my Taurus friends, you’ll begin to feel much more grounded and more like yourself once the sun finally enters your sign on April 20th. However, On April 30th, the Taurus solar (new moon) eclipse will rocket you onto an empowering new path. This is also a black moon, meaning it’s the second new moon to fall in a single month. With eclipses, you never quite know where you will land, but in this case for you Taurus, this solar event will serve as a slate cleaner. You will feel fresh, revitalized, and ready to start something new and exciting. The stars are in your favor, resulting in profitable outcomes, so take advantage, step out of your comfort zone and don’t hold back.
Green is a direct representation of the natural world, growth, and stability, which perfectly fits the Taurus personality, don’t you think? It’s no wonder this relaxing and beautiful hue is the power color for said Taurus. Green rejuvenates and provides the energies that allow the bull to grow and expand in life experiences. But, green is also the color of money. The power and wealth of currency is very attractive to a Taurus. There are several ways a Taurus can tap into the abundant energy of this power color. The first is through home or office décor, with a splash of paint or a simple throw pillow or rug. The second is with wardrobe by wearing a nice new dress for spring or something as simple as a new manicure showcasing one of the many beautiful green nail wraps from Karma Nail Wraps.
