Taurus dates are from APRIL 20 to MAY 20
Taurus Zodiac Sign
Mythology describes Taurus as the ‘Celestial Bull’ who betrayed Goddess Hera – the bull’s best friend.
As such, Taurus is seen as an unfortunate being that has to wander the Earth to regain freedom and peace.
Taurus Symbol is the BULL
In the zodiac, the Taurus sign is represented by the Bull symbol.
In Babylonian mythology – Epic of Gilgamesh – and ancient Egyptian beliefs, Taurus was associated with the ‘Bull of Heavens.’
In Greek mythology, Taurus is associated with Zeus when the god transformed into a white bull to abduct the princess Europa.
Intelligent, ambitious, and trustworthy, the Bull is the anchor of the Zodiac.
The Bull also symbolizes strength, bravery, passion, and determination.
Taurus Element is EARTH
In astrology, each zodiac sign is created from (associated with) one of the four main elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.
The constituting element (Earth, Water, Air, and Fire) directly impacts the character of the signs and provides insight into the best life and love matches.
Together with Virgo and Capricorn, Taurus is a sign built from the Earth element.
As such, Taurus sees life from a grounded, practical, and even mercantile perspective.
Taurus has FIXED Modality (Quality)
In astrology, the 12 zodiac signs are further categorized by their Modality or quality (the sign’s energy and vibe).
There are three primary modalities: Fixed, Mutable, and Cardinal, each hosting 4 zodiac signs.
Fixed signs: Taurus, Aquarius, Leo, and Scorpio
Mutable signs: Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Pisces
Cardinal signs: Cancer, Aries, Capricorn, and Libra
Each Modality group represents how signs express energy, react to circumstances, and navigate life.
Fixed signs have a wonderful blend of thinking and doing and are known as the “Power Signs” of the zodiac.
The Fixed nature stabilizes all Modalities, so there’s no surprise these signs fall in the middle of every season.
Focused, dedicated, and trustworthy, Fixed modality signs are “fixated” on the ultimate achievement and prize.
Taurus’s Planet is VENUS
Inspired by Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and money, Taurus sign folks are a rare blend of power and grace.
The sign’s Fixed Modality bestows them with supernatural characteristics, while the Venusian influence makes them the most sensual sign of the Zodiac.
As an Earth element sign of Fixed quality, Taurus folks are excellent at creating functional routines in all areas of life.
Taurus is a prominent constellation in the northern sky, symbolized by the bull’s head and one of the oldest known constellations.
In Greek mythology, the constellation was associated with Zeus, who transformed himself into a bull to get close to Europa and abduct her.
Taurus Personality Traits
Taureans, like the bull that represents them, are hardworking, dependable, dedicated, and stubborn.
Taurus love COMFORT
Like their celestial spirit animal, Taureans enjoy relaxing in serene, rural environments, surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavors.
Taurus finds it easy to work hard, make money, and stay on the same projects for years or until completion.
Enchanted by any physical manifestation of comfort and luxury, life pleasures are critical to epicurean Taureans, who feel most content when pampered.
In an ideal world, folks under the sign of Taurus would spend all day bathing in a hot tub with flowers and essential oils.
Taurus is PRAGMATIC
Like other fellow Earth signs, Taurus folks have a strong need for physical goods, money, and comfort.
However, Taurus natives know that comfort and pampering require money and hard work.
As such, Taurus folks are always ready to roll up their sleeves and work hard to earn big rewards.
Taurus is PRACTICAL
Self-protective by nature, Taureans avoid creating or receiving criticism, drama, or feelings of guilt from people they love.
Moreover, when emotions run wild, and situations become challenging, Taurus brings a practical voice of reason, turning chaotic into actionable tasks.
Taurus is SENTIMENTAL
Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, attraction, beauty, satisfaction, creativity, and gratitude, Taurus has a gentle and tender nature that hates sudden changes.
Closed in their world and almost disconnected from the surrounding reality, Taurus keeps pushing forward in job or love, often powered by memories of the ‘good old days.’
Unfortunately, when things go wrong, Taurus folks are the last to notice and unable to mend it.
Taurus is RESILIENT
As a Fixed modality sign grounded in the Earth element, NOTHING can bring Taurus folks down.
Assertive and resilient, Taurus folks thrive on adversity.
In fact, the bigger the challenge, the stronger this zodiac sign becomes.

Any threat to financial stability will have the proverbial Bull seeing red.
Focused, ambitious, and resilient, Taurus people feel most secure when putting money into a savings account.
The Taurus sign is all about return on investment (the Bull is also the symbol of Wall Street).
Hence, Taureans know how to play the long game in business and romantic pursuits.
Taurus is STUBBORN
What Taurus describes as ‘dedication’ is regarded – by business partners, lovers, and friends – as stubbornness.
The sign’s innate uni-directional nature gets Taurus folks lingering in unhealthy situations, be those love relationships, jobs, or family.
Taureans see different ways of doing business or dealing with relationships but will stick with their perspective until the end, just to prove a point.
As a positive, Taurus’ stubbornness can be interpreted as a commitment to complete tasks, whatever it takes.

Taurus is HONEST
Despite having a reputation for being stubborn, the celestial Bull isn’t always stuck in its ways, often opening to others’ points of view.
As long as their opinion comes across as honest, valid, and drama-free, the celestial Taurus will be more than happy to accept another perspective and right a wrong.
That’s exactly what makes Taureans such amazing friends, colleagues, and partners.
Yet, Taurus people won’t flip-flop on an opinion just to make others happy and shift thinking only if they genuinely have a change of heart.
Taurus is HEDONISTIC
Under the spell of Venus, the planet of love, Taurus has a sensual nature in constant search for life’s pleasure.

As the mountains stop the wind, so does the Earth stifle Air sign’s innate curiosity and desire for exploration.

Yet, in the long term, the Taureans might get tired of the Air sings’ (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) lack of commitment and desire to settle down.

The Taurus would much rather hear that an outfit is unflattering than endure hollow compliments.
Taurus is SLOW TO WARM UP
Romantic and sensitive, Taurus is slow to warm up; but once they do, they become passionate, loving, and unafraid to express their feelings.
While Taurus is highly sensual and loves to be touched and stroked, the folks under this zodiac sign seek a safe environment before engaging in sexual encounters.

Taurus doesn’t get influenced by gossip or petty drama and will always see the best in the loved ones, motivating and helping them when feeling down.
Learning to consider and accept others’ viewpoints is a lifelong lesson for all Taureans.
While Taurus people are some of the hardest workers in the Zodiac, this sign can get lazy at times.
