Unlike Aries, which has had several symbols over time, Taurus has always been represented by the bull. To the casual observer, it might seem odd that a bull, which is often thought of as an aggressive, primal creature, should symbolize a sign of peace and love. The reason? Timing. In ancient cultures, most springtime celebrations occurred around May Day, when the last traces of
winter were finally over, the land could be plowed again, and fertility was in the air. So the bull constellation's appearance in the night sky coincided with these festivities.

Also, the progression of the zodiacal signs occurs from the head down, so while Aries is represented by the head, Taurus has a strong connection to the neck, larynx, and ears.

Taurus' planetary ruler is Venus, the goddess of peace, love, and harmony. If you are a Taurus, Venus' likely influence on you includes your romantic, caring nature, your preference for the color blue (although there is some debate about this), and your favorite day—Friday (in French, vendredi, named after Venus).
