Taurus (astrology), From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Taurus is an astrological sign, which is associated with the constellation of the same name. Under the tropical zodiac, Taurus is occupied by the Sun from April 21 to May 20, and under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently from May 14 to June 19. Taurus is traditionally ruled by the planet Venus. The opposite sign to Taurus is Scorpio and the two signs are widely considered to be the most sexually responsive of all zodiacal members.

Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac and associated with material pleasure. Individuals born under this sign are thought to have a calm, patient, reliable, loyal, affectionate, sensuous, ambitious, and determined character, but one which is also prone to hedonism, laziness, inflexibility, jealousy, ignorance, and antipathy. In terms of anatomy, Taurus is said to rule the vocal chords, tonsils, palate, throat, neck, ears, and lower jaw. Generally, there is something distinctly sensual about the appearance. In terms of geography Taurus is linked with Switzerland, Sweden, Cyprus, Ireland, and Russia.

In mythology Taurus is often associated with the Greek myth of the bull-form taken by Zeus in order to win Europa. Taurus is also associated with the Greco-Roman goddess Aphrodite/Venus and sometimes also the goddesses Hera/Juno, Ishtar, Isis, Freyja, and Frigg and the gods Pan, Dionysus/Bacchus, Xolotl, and Quetzalcoatl.
