From April 20th to May 20th, the sun shines in the sign of Taurus, the second astrological sign and the first of three earth signs, marking the midpoint of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s a time to embrace grounding and productivity with our beloved bull. Welcome to Taurus season!

Taurus is rich in myth across various cultures. The Native Zuni tribe saw the Pleiades as “seed stars,” guiding their planting season, while Celts celebrated their rise with a festival akin to Halloween. In Greek mythology, Taurus features in stories of Persephone, Hercules, and as Zeus himself, notably in the myth where Zeus transforms into a bull to win Europa’s love, leading to the birth of Minos. This explains why Taurus is often depicted with only its head and torso, symbolizing its submerged form. Among the Mesopotamians, it was revered as “The Great Bull of Heaven,” marking the dawn of the zodiac.


Taurus, like the bull, radiates solidity and resilience. Among its prominent traits are calmness, reliability, and persistent determination. As the earth sign, the Taurus babies are super practical and down -to- earth. Rules by Venus, the planet of love, money, pleasure and luxury, they are hopeless romantic and the financier of zodiac. Taurus, symbolized by the bull, is a fixed sign associated with creativity, dependability, indulgence, and yes, stubbornness. With the bull’s mantra of “steady and determined,” Taurus reminds us of the importance of perseverance. As Taurus season unfolds, it serves as a gentle reminder to maintain a resolute mindset as we pursue our aspirations and goals. Main qualities of Taurus: calm, reliable and persistent.
