Taurus is the second zodiac sign and rules the second house—it’s all about enjoying rewards. Unlike Aries, who love excitement, Taurus folks love what they get from it. They adore physical pleasures and nice things because it feels great to them. People born under this sign really enjoy touch, finding comfort in gentle and even sensual feelings. They love being around cozy, comforting stuff and really appreciate a good meal and a nice glass of wine. Anything representing the good life, like art or their own creative work (they’re artistic too), feels like paradise for people born under Taurus.
The connection between humans and the Taurus constellation goes back to ancient times, way back to the early bronze age. The Bull’s position in the sky, especially in the Northern Hemisphere, was important for many old cultures. They used it to understand time, especially the original Spring Equinox. It was linked to blessing agriculture and marked the time to plow and plant essential crops for cultures like Sumerian, Babylonian, Greek, Roman, and even in New Mexico.
They are also connected to a cool myth about a White Bull that Zeus turned into to impress Princess Europa. The Bull carried Europa across the Mediterranean Sea to Crete, where they had a son named Minos, who became a famous king in many legendary tales.
