As the intense Aries season comes to an end, the lazy Taurus season is upon us. Taurus season usually begins around the 20th of April through to the 21st of May and those born between those dates may be called Taureans. The sign belongs to the Earth element and has a feminine or negative polarity. Taurus was the first zodiac sign established and is known as ‘The Great Bull of Heaven’. Those born during the sun’s transition through Taurus have specific strengths and weaknesses according to astronomy. Their strengths include; being reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible and stable while their weaknesses are thought to be; being stubborn, possessive and uncompromising.
In Greek Mythology, the Bull betrayed their best friend, goddess Hera herself and is now an unfortunate being that has to wander the Earth in order to find freedom. Taureans close up their own worlds, lonely and separated from their core. To find love, Taureans have to travel the world, change perspective or make shift in their own entire belief system and their system of values.
The Taurus constellation is visible in Winter and Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and in Summer and Fall in the Southern Hemisphere. Many people choose Taurus for their star to be in not only because of the Zodiac sign but because of all of the famous stars that may lay among theirs, such as Aldebaran as well as clusters like the Pleiades and Hyades with the Taurid meteor shower in November 2019!
