Taurus is the second zodiac sign on the zodiac circle and represents the transition of the sun through the sign of the Bull between April 20 and May 20 every year, according to the tropical astrology.

Therefore, everyone who is born in this period is said to belong to the Taurus sign. The symbol associated with this sign is the Bull. These natives are warm hearted and calm at most times.

They are interested predominantly in their own comfort and don’t have too high expectations from life. However this doesn’t mean that they won’t stand in front of anyone that dares to provoke them. The glyph for the Taurus zodiac sign depicts the head of the Bull. 

Symbolism and history of the Bull:

The Bull in the Taurus astrology meaning is the representative figure of the transformation of Zeus in search for love. It seems that Zeus had fallen for Europa, a beautiful young woman, and in order to attract her he decided to take the shape of a white bull. For the remembrance of this moment he also put the Bull amongst the stars, creating the constellation of Taurus.

Another mythological existence of the bull is signaled in the presence of Dionysus, the sun of Jupiter who used to carry the head of a bull, as a symbol of wealth and abundance.

Characteristics of the Bull:

The Bull by itself is a symbol of provoked aggressiveness and willfulness. This is the strongest symbol of the Zodiac and it denotes strength and stamina put to good use. Despite the rough appearance, the Bull is calm and composed and seems to mind his own things. It represents the simplicity and delight of the pleasures of life.

He most certainly doesn’t lose his temper quickly but can easily be provoked. When such things happen its sympathetic and kind nature turns into a real hurricane and nothing can stand in his way. Bulls are head on in life but only in situations when they are set to act like this, other that that they are composed and earthed.

The Bull native loves his comfort and is willing to put all stamina and wit toward fulfilling his needs. If something stands in his way, he won’t hesitate to show his power and determination.
