The story of Taurus the Bull

The Constellation of Taurus

According to Greek mythology, Zeus fell in love with Europa, the daughter of the King of Tyre. Because Europa was constantly guarded by her father’s servants Zeus changed himself into a beautiful white bull with golden horns.

He then mixed with the herds, that belonged to the King of Tyre and which were grazing in a large field by the sea.

Europa was walking along the beach and noticed this beautiful animal which she went up and fed. The splendid bull was so beautiful and friendly that she climbed onto its back and grasped its golden horns.

Gradually the white bull wandered onto the beach. It ran into the water and began swimming towards the island of Crete. By this time is was too late for Europa to climb off.

When they eventually came ashore, Zeus changed himself back into his own form. Realising that he could not marry her himself, Zeus gave Europa in marriage to Asterius, the King of Crete.

The constellation of Taurus only shows the head of the Bull. This is because his hind quarters are under water as he swims towards Crete.

The Elements

Taurus is an Earth sign

The Zodiac is divided into four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, which represent the four basic modes of being. Signs that share an Element are generally regarded to be harmonious with each other.

The Element of Taurus is “Earth” which it shares and is compatible with Virgo and Capricorn.

The Element of Earth stands for man’s material resources, his environment and his possessions and belongings.

The Qualities

The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable and signs that share a Quality are generally regarded to be hostile to each other.

The Quality relates to the basic temperament of an individual, who will have a prevailing identifying characteristic that is rarely altered through life – nor does it need to be.

Each of these Qualities views the world very differently, their reactions to stimuli are different so that any action they take will be different too.

The Quality of Taurus is “Fixed”

A “fixed sign” is a sign of the zodiac that marks the midpoints of the seasons and therefore Taurus occurs during the fullness of Spring.

Fixed signs tend to be stable individuals who are solid and inflexible. They are wary of change, particularly new ideas and ways of doing things.

However, they are full of purpose and are totally loyal to their family, friends and beliefs.

Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are also fixed signs. As a result they are less likely to be compatible with Taurus.

Taurus Qualities

The positive side of Taurus

Taureans have limitless patience and are very inquisitive and resourceful.

They are very sensitive towards people’s feelings and organising their finances and business affairs are a real strength.

Taureans have a great affinity for the beautiful things in life.

Taurus lucky colour: Green

The colour associated with the planet Venus

Green suggests nature as in plants and forests, life, stability and restfulness. However, while in modern times the colour has come to represent the environment, it can also represent jealousy and envy.

Green should never be worn on serious or “sensible” occasions. It has a soothing effect on the nerves and has come to symbolise prosperity.

Green has also been regarded as the colour of eternal life, as seen in evergreens which never change their colour or shed their leaves.

This means that because it can have a soothing effect green is often used in hospitals – it is thought to help lower the stress levels of both patients and carers.

Green is believed to be an unlucky colour for those who are about to be married. However, it is otherwise considered lucky if an individual wishes to attract attention.

Positive qualities of green: Harmony, balance, refreshment, universal love, rest, restoration, reassurance, environmental awareness, balance and peace.

Negative qualities of green: Boredom, stagnation, blandness, lack of energy

Taureans are also drawn to deep blues, violets and sometimes pastels or florals. They prefer soft patterns that are suggestive of nature or natural things.

They are also attracted to soothing colours that created harmony and peace, such as the calming tone of lilac.

Taureans can also be helped by yellow. This is because it inspires the mind and helps to offset the inherent tendency of this Sign toward laziness and lethargy.

Other favourable colours: Pink, orange, cream, coral, white, bright brown, black

Unfavourable colours: Grey, dull brown, red, variegated colours, faded colours

Taurus wants to be surrounded by beauty, comfort, music and art which appeals to all of their laid-back needs.
