Taurus Sign Dates, Traits, & More

Taurus Zodiac


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 achieving 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.

Fast Summary:


Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and is symbolized by the Bull, which symbolizes this signs steadfast and possessive manner. Taurus symbol or glyph represents the resolute and indomitable head of the bull. The Sun is in Taurus from around 20 April to around 21 May each year. Taurus is classified as being of the negative polarity (passive and receptive), of the earth element (practical, cautious and restrained) and of the fixed quality (intense, steadfast and resistant to change).

The Sign shows a productive, conservative and possessive attitude, with an urge towards organic relatedness, material security and sustenance. The characteristic Taurus type is productive, industrious, reliable and steadfast, with a marked need for material comfort and security. Taurus has tremendous powers of endurance and patience, and by nature conserves, withholds, and needs to possess. Taurus has a sound sense of material values, of art, beauty and harmony, as well as a love of good food, luxuries and comfort. Taurus has fixed ways and opinions and strong feelings generally. Taurus thought-processes usually follow accepted, reliable and predictable patterns, preferring to stick with the familiar and comfortable.

There is a danger of Taurus becoming too narrow-minded, disregarding the abstract or anything which can’t be sensed directly. They may also be unresponsive to things which dont conform to its perceived common sense value of the tried and trusted. There can also be a danger of Taurus measuring the worth of everything in exclusively material ways, and of being too concerned with money and possessions. Taurus may show love in exclusively material ways, often expecting the same in return, often being unresponsive to deeper emotions in life. Overly exaggerated use or unintegrated expression of the Taurus manner can cause one to be too possessive, grasping, self-indulgent, stubborn, resentful of contradiction, unoriginal, stuck in a rut and slavishly adherent to routine.

Constellation of Taurus


The second of the zodiacal constellations, Taurus is one of the oldest and notable constellations because during 4000 and 1700 BC, it marked the vernal eqinox. Taurus lies along the milky way, giving its viewers many interesting objects. Taurus is home to the cluster of stars, the Pleiades, also known as the seven sisters. The Pleiades are a group of stars all within 1 degree of each other. Taurus is also one of the many animals hunted by Orion. The sun passes through the constellation of Taurus from mid May through late June.



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.

    You know when you’re trying the wrong key in a door, and it just won’t turn? You can twist and wheedle all you want, but nothing’s going to make that door budge.

    Well, that’s what it’s like arguing with a Taurus. Famously stubborn, Taurus provokes an uncanny frustration when challenged. What you don’t often hear, though, is how right they can be much of the time. Slow to anger, slow to make up their minds, Taureans believe what they do so fully because they’ve had time to consider their position. And consider it. And – well, you get the picture.

    At the same time, however, you’ve got one of the most sensuous people you’ll ever meet. Taureans are basically suckers for the finer things in life: food, wine, perfumes, music — let’s face it. Maybe Taurus is so stubborn because they’re usually right about this stuff.

    This is a very affectionate sign, and one with staying power. Don’t make them mad, though. Please. Don’t ever make them mad.

    Biggest Insult: Why are you such a flake?

    Quickest Way to Get Taurus into Bed: is an oxymoron. Make yourself all pretty. Wait a couple years.

    Most Likely to: Be the person you call when you get hit by a car. Bail you out of jail. Sleep until noon. Stockpile fine wines in a kitchen cabinet for a rainy day.

    Should Have Been Born: at Versailles.

    To Make Taurus Forgive You: is as tricky as making Taurus do anything. Tell Taurus how right he or she was. Beg forgiveness for being so wrong. Wait a couple years.

  2. Astrobabe says:

    Characteristically, a Taurus will be practical, extremely determined, and bull-headed (which should come as no surprise looking at the symbol of the zodiacal sign). They bear a strong sense of willpower, but may also be a loyal follower to a leader in whom they place their trust. They are stable, balanced, law-abiding people and enjoy peace rather than war. They have a sense of material values and physical possessions, a respect for property, and a fear of falling into debt.

    A Taurus may display more practical rather than intellectual prowess, and will use this practicality in dealing with future situations. Their character is generally dependable, prudent, just, firm, and unshaken in the face of adversity. On rare occasions, a Taurus may be self-indulgent, rigid, argumentative, self-righteous, or even self-centered. If hurt too frequently, a Taurus may develop a sense of resentment towards the personalities which have caused them pain. If this type of Taurus begins to develop, they will require frequent ego-boosting in order to restore their morale. This is rarely the case, however, as it does take quite a bit of bruising to break through the thick skin of the Taurus.

    A Taurus may prove to be quite the “artsy” person, as they seem to enjoy all things beautiful, including music. They also are prone to enjoying the “perks” of life – pleasure, comfort, luxury and good food and wine, and they may have to resist the temptation to over indulgence, leading to drunkenness, gross sensuality, and covetousness.
