The Egyptian Houras (Horus) was the bull of heaven and a white bull was sacrificed in Babylonia at the New Year to placate Ramman, the god of thunder and lightning.

In mythology Taurus was the white bull who courted Europa, bearing her on his back; and was in fact Zeus in disguise. When the god changed back into his normal form, he placed the bull in the heaven


Taurus Character

Ruled by the goddess of love Venus and with a feminine (receptive) nature, Taurus is more passive in its energy. A fixed (resistant to change) sign, Taurus governs practicality and security.

It is an Earth (solid and material) sign and a typical Taurean will have a passionate nature and be endowed with a strong sense of loyalty and fidelity. You, the Taurean, are kind and generous with friends, with whom you develop an unspoken rapport.

Characteristically, the key attributes of the Taurean personality are solidity, practicality, extreme determination and strength of will - no one will ever drive you but, given a leader you can trust, you willingly and loyally follow. That is not to say you follow blindly, your feet are too firmly rooted in the Earth for that.

Stable, balanced, conservative, a good law-abiding citizen and lover of peace, you will do everything in your power to maintain the security of the status quo and are hostile to change. This desire for stability is one of the driving forces in your character.

Taureans make excellent business people as you have the ability to make money and hang on to it! Your overpowering need for both material values and physical possessions drives you and a feeling of security is important. A Taurean will demand this at home, in your marriage and in your career. The Bull is slowly roused but when you are, you are ferocious and difficult to cope with.

Dependable, steadfast, prudent, just, firm and unshaken in the face of difficulties.

Taurus Mind

Mentally you are keen-witted and practical rather than intellectual.

You are apt to become fixed in your opinions with your preference for following accepted and reliable patterns of experience.

When asked for your opinion, you will give it and when done, that is that, do not expect it to change! Stubbornness is your main characteristic after all!

Constructive but not original, best left to get on with your own carefully-planned lines and not be unduly upset from an even tiny and unimportant deviation from the normal run of events.

Taurus Emotion

In your personal relationships you make a constant, faithful, home loving spouse and a thoughtful kindly parent.
However, you can be over-possessive and may, at times, engineer situations to provoke quarrels in order to satisfy your needs in the making up!

You are a faithful and generous friend with a great capacity for affection, but you rarely make friends with anyone outside your perceived social status, to which you tend to be excessively faithful.

In the main you are gentle, even tempered good-natured, modest and slow to anger, disliking quarrelling and avoiding ill feeling. However, once provoked, you can explode into violent outbursts of ferocious anger in which you can seem to lose all self-control.

Taurus Body & Health

A typical Earthy Taurean will be physically strong and solidly built, on the shorter side, stocky, with strong and thick back and wide neck - the overall effect being one of bulk.

Those with a Venusian build can have a beautiful and near perfect body, the males wide in shoulders and slender of hips, the females pure Aphrodites with beautiful proportions and wide shoulders leading to a well-formed arched neck.

Taurus governs the throat and neck and, therefore, Taureans need to beware throat infections, goitre and respiratory ailments, such as asthma.

You are also prone to diseases of the genitals, womb, liver and kidney, and of abscesses and rheumatism.

Taureans are prone to gain weight as your body type has an inclination to physical laziness.

Taurus rules the throat and neck. They tend to make good singers and orators having powerful voices but the thyroid gland, being located in this area, is prone to complications.

The classic Taurean is built like a bull, with a strong back and stocky appearance. This is often moderated by the influence of their ruling planet, Venus. The extreme of this being wide shouldered and slender hipped men with the women a voluptuous, classical figure with an elegant neck.

The great appetite of Taurus can lead to problems with weight, especially with their appreciation of the finer things in life. Back problems are an area to consider dependant on the placement and aspects of the planets in the sign.

Taurus Career & Jobs

You are industrious and a good craftsperson and are not afraid of getting your hands dirty.

Reliable, practical and methodical, the security of a conventional office will attract you and you will work best when the end of the month brings a guaranteed wage.

You are at your best in routine positions of trust and responsibility, where there is little need for urgency and even less risk of change and a pension at the end. Yet you can be creative and a good founder of an enterprise, where the reward from your productivity comes from your own work and not that of others.

However, there is another side to the Taurean…your distinct artistic leaning which, given your temperament, is best exercised through a conventional commercial employee-artist medium rather than of a speculative nature.

Career suggestions include:

banking, architecture, sculpting, building, farming, medicine, chemistry, insurance, education, civil service, accountancy, auctioneering, property dealing, art dealing, jewellery and singing.
