What is the Taurus Sign?
Taurus is a sign of the earth, symbolized by the bull. Taureans, like their astrological spirit animal, appreciate tranquil, bucolic situations surrounded by soft sounds, calming fragrances, and sumptuous flavors.
As a Taurus, you are a perfect combination of laxness and diligence. You are occasionally too trustworthy and devoted to others. Your perseverance and attention to detail will propel you to great success in life.
The symbol for Taurus depicts a bull’s face and horns. This image is based on a historical view of stars in the constellation Taurus, although it is mostly associated with spring, when all of nature’s gifts are ready to be reaped.
It represents development, fertility, and the gifts bestowed to us by planet Earth.
The planet Venus, named by the Romans after their goddess of love, beauty, sex, fertility, prosperity, and desire, rules the Zodiac Sign of Taurus.
This deity’s precursor was the Greek goddess Aphrodite, whose function was similar to that of Venus.
Taurus’ Ruling Planet
The Venus symbol consists of a circle with a cross below it. A circle depicts the divine spirit and points to Venus’ divinity, whilst the cross represents physical matter and practicality.
The relationship between the two signifies our urge to bring the divine to Earth, to create beauty in our physical reality, and to embody divine love in our daily lives.
