Taurus – The Bull

Taurus

The second sign of the zodiac

Its symbol represents the head and horns of a bull. The sacred Apis was presumed to be the incarnation of the god Osiris — hence a symbol of a sepulchre or tomb. The Sun’s entry into Taurus was celebrated as a Feast of Maya (Maia) — our May Day — the Sun represented by a white bull with a golden disc between his horns, followed by a procession of virgins, exemplifying the fecundity of Nature in Spring.

The Sun is in Taurus annually from April 21 to May 20. Astrologically and astronomically it is in the second thirty-degree arc from the Spring Equinox, from 30° to 60° along the Ecliptic.

It is the Fixed quality of the Earth element, conferring external will power that, ordinarily passive and negative, becomes obstinate and unbending when aroused. Negative, nocturnal, cold, dry and melancholy.

Ruler: Venus.

Exaltation: Moon.

Detriment: Mars.

Fall: Uranus.
