Taurus is the second sign in the astrological zodiac. People born between April 20th and May 21st are considered Taurus personalities. This sign is represented by a bull, which is related to the constellation Taurus (in which Zeus transformed himself into a bull in order to seduce Europa). However, the sign is no longer connected to the constellation due to the changing patterns of the earth and the precession of the equinoxes.
Taurus is a negative, or introverted sign, and feminine. It is ruled by the planet Venus. Taurus is one of four earth elements and is a fixed sign. Each sign in the zodiac controls part of human anatomy. Of the human body, Taurus governs the neck and throat.

Taurus individuals are also highly susceptible to throat disorders, like goiters or tonsillitis.

Taurus individuals tend to be the opposite of Scorpios.
