Taurus Zodiac Symbol

The Taurus zodiac symbol is the bull. This symbol represents power and strength. Bulls for the most part will happily mind their own business unless they are provoked in which case they will not hesitate to charge. Taureans are similar. Usually calm and peaceful, they can unleash their fiery temper if tempted.

The story of the bull in Greek mythology is the story of Europa and Camdus, children of a king in the Middle East. Zeus fell in love with Europa and wanted her all to himself. One day while Europa was herding her family's cattle, she noticed a white bull. Zeus had transformed himself into this white bull to trick her into going away with him. When Europa got on the bull, Zeus quickly fled and took Europa from her family. Her father sent her brother Camdus out into the sea to search for her and she was never found.

Taurus Zodiac Sign

Taurus is an earth sign alongside Virgos and Capricorns. Earth signs are known to be the most grounded people on the planet. They are loyal friends that are always keeping it real with you. They help bring a practical approach to life and make decisions analytically. Because of this, don't get along with people who are unreliable, chaotic, and irresponsible. Earth signs are also known to like material things, they enjoy luxury but don't enjoy it without mindful planning.

Taurus Personality Traits

Tauraens are practical in nature and love enjoying the fruits of their labor. They desire to be surrounded by beauty and love and are drawn to material things in the world. But, they are also known to be stable and realistic. They are one of the more dependable signs in the zodiac. Tauraens are determined and will always see something to the finish. This makes them great friends, partners, and employees. Because their sign is strong and determined, you'll see this play out in their emotions. Taureans tend to hold in their emotions and march on no matter what. They do not like to feel or show their emotions publicly but rather privately where they can fully process them.

Taurus Downfalls

Because Tauraens don't display their emotions, they can be viewed as insensitive, rude, cold, and emotionless. Also, because of their lax personalities, they are sometimes viewed as lazy. The biggest and most notable downfall of a Taurus is their stubbornness. With a bull symbol, what do you expect? They typically find comfort in specific behaviors, patterns, or thoughts and it can be hard to get them to step outside of those.

Taurus Compatability

Earth signs will always be most compatible with other earth signs including Virgos and Capricorns. They will naturally understand each other due to their similar characteristics. Earth signs are also compatible with the water signs which include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Earth signs and fire signs together make an interesting match, challenging but also possibly exciting. As earth signs can be stubborn and stuck in their ways, a fire sign can bring life, excitement, and change that an earth sign might need. Earth and air signs are the least compatible of them all as they are polar opposites astrologically and their characteristics highly contrast each other.
