Taurus Zodiac Sign Introduction
In many ways Taureans typify an earth sign; being very down-to-earth, sensual, and nature-loving people. They love stability and security, whence they will show great reliability. They are practical, methodical, dependable, preferring routine, and resist change more so than other signs but nevertheless cope better than most when getting down to enforced changes. They tend to be slow and resolute in their progress, but usually, achieve their wants.
They are very often jealous and possessive by nature but if this can be overcome make very loving, loyal partners. As well as relationships, Taurus much appreciates other forms of harmonious surroundings in view of it being ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. This may well be arts and crafts, music, or gardening for example. And they tend to love the good things in life, especially food and drink. The materialistic side to them relates more to the accumulation of things than simply having the best – as long as it is of good quality. They are great collectors.

There are many stories as to how the great bull became placed amongst our stars. The most notable is the story of Zeus and Europa: Europa was so beautiful that Zeus fell immediately in love with her. He transformed himself into a milky white bull and grazed with the others of Europa’s father’s herd. Europa became enchanted by the beautiful bull and went over to him. The bull knealt down and allowed Europa to climb on his back. As soon as she had climbed atop his back, he carried her away to the island of Crete, where he made her his mistress. Europa then gave birth to Minos who was half bull and half man. Zeus celebrated his love for Europa by not only naming the continent of Europe after her, but also by placing the bull in the sky as a symbol of power and fertility.
