Taurus Horoscope- The Bull

In Greek Mythology, Orion the Hunter hunted Taurus the Bull as well as many other animals. The Greeks thought Taurus was Zeus in disguise. When Zeus first saw Europa who was the daughter of Agenor, King of Phoenicia, he fell madly in love and plotted to get her. One day while watching her picking flowers in this beautiful field, he changed himself into an all white bull. When Europa saw this white bull she went over and petted it thinking it very harmless. However when she decided to jump on its back, Zeus flew off with her to Crete where he ravaged her.
