Taurus - The Bull: April 21 to May 21

The Bull is classified as a negative or passive (introvert) sign. This gives the characteristics of being reflective, receptive to the ideas of others. Typically, a 'thinker' rather than a 'doer'. However, being of the earth-triplicity, the Bull is considered by astrologers to be a highly practical sign which is happiest when involved in some kind of creative process. Although generally considered easy-going and placid, as a fixed sign the Bull is renowned for being stubborn.

Taureans are likened to the bull in being slow to show anger, but capable of raging if pushed too far. The Bull is said to be solid and practical with extreme determination and strength of will. They are stable, balanced, conservative good, law-abiding citizens and lovers of peace. They have a sense of material values and physical possessions, respect for property and a dislike of falling into debt. They will do everything in their power to maintain the security of the status quo.

Taurus is the second astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the zodiac between the 30th and 59th degree of celestial longitude. Generally, the Sun transits this area of the zodiac between April 21 to May 20 each year (sometimes the dates vary slightly). Individuals born during these dates, whilst the Sun is within this sign are called Taureans.
