April 20 - May 21 - Taurus Birth Sign

Taurus is the second astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Taurus. Individuals born within the period when the Sun was in this sign are considered Taurus individuals.


Taurus is the zodiac sign of people born between April 20th and May 20th. It is the second sign of the zodiac, following Aries and preceding Gemini. Taurus is associated with the element earth, and is therefore often associated with the color brown and other earth tones. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus. The symbol ascribed to the sign of Taurus is the bull.

Funnily enough, the term “bull-headed” often applies to Taureans; they are among the strongest signs in terms of accomplishing tasks. This trait is due to their reliable persistence in moving towards the completion of projects. This persistence, however, may relate to their stubbornness, another trait suggested by the term "bull-headed;" Taureans are known to be stubborn, and may become argumentative in upholding their positions.

A Fixed Quality is attached to Taurus, making Taureans stable, steady, resolute, determined, and self-assured. In addition to accounting for the stubbornness of Taureans, the Fixed Quality helps check the tendency toward indulgence that Taurus' association with Venus and the Second House, the House of Possessions, gives them. Though their need for physical pleasure can lead to a focus on the acquisition and ownership of money and other material goods that may border on materialism and even greed, the conservative nature of an earth sign allows them to be cautious and practical rather than extravagant.

The Fixed Quality also make Taureans even-tempered; reliable, functioning citizens; and grants them their greatest strength: remarkable stability and determination. The methodical perseverance of the Taurus-born allows them to remain determined and productive even while others have given up long ago. For this reason, Taureans are among the most dependable of the zodiac signs.

Because of the fixation on material possessions that results from their association with Venus and the House of Possessions, Taureans may find themselves overly concerned with trivial matters such as status, and may even be viewed as snobs. However, though their stubbornness and often strong opinions may cause them to appear judgmental, they tend to be tolerant and gentle, and are patient and dependable.

Taureans' affinity for the Earth causes many of them to find themselves outdoors in their free time. Many Taurus-born like to engage in physical activities while outdoors and, like the bull, may also appreciate tests of their strength. Those less inclined to being physically active or exploring outdoor activities may find that their tendency to focus on beauty and pleasure dominates their choice in entertainment; these Taureans tend to partake in activities that allow them to appreciate art, music, and culture, or create art or music themselves.
