Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You’re a bull, so they say, but the reality is, you’re a dog. You are affectionate, playful, goofy, and stubborn as heck. You’ve got loyalty down to a science, and you love a good bowl of chow.

Leo

Leo July 23 - August 22) Why bother arguing here? You're a Lion, you own it, you know it, and we all agree. There is no other animal for you unless it's a mini Lion, or a cartoon Lion, or Lion figurine. It doesn't matter. You roar, we cringe and back off, no matter...

Virgo

Virgo (August 23 - September 22) You're a pig, and we mean that with total respect. Virgin, schmirgin! Who the heck thought that one up? You're no virgin, that's for sure, nor are you pure and innocent. However, you are smart and you do love a good roll in the filth,...

Libra

Libra (September 23 - October 22) The scales. Huh? No Libra in the history of the world has ever been even-keeled or well-balanced. You're a cockroach: you survive it all, and mostly by walking on top of people. Libra Libra (♎︎) is the seventh astrological sign in the...

Scorpio

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) Yeah, being associated with a Scorpion sounds cool and threatening, but are you even slightly cool and threatening in real life? Nah, you're more bark than bite, which makes you a dog. All that Scorpio toughness makes you a...

Sagittarius

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) You're a horse in so much as you always have hair in your eyes, but it ends there. You're much less fiery Centaur than you are wimpy mouse, and mouse you are, Sagittarius. Hiding in the dark, happily munching on your cracker,...

Cancer

Cancer (June 21 - July 22) Being associated with a crab is just such a downer. A crab? Come on, anything has to be more potent than a crab. You're much more of a whale than a crustacean, any day. Wise, stealthy, somewhat slow but powerful, with a mean mating call....

Gemini

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) That whole "twins" thing is cool when it's there to describe your two-sided nature, but if we had to pinpoint your spirit animal, it would have to be a minnow, or, maybe a sardine. You're the anchovy of the zodiac: little, stinky, and...

Aries

Aries (March 21 - April 19) They call you a ram and that may be all well and good, but you Aries types, you know you're just big ol' wildcats. You're smart, cunning, lazy, and, on occasion, you love to knock stuff off a table. When you walk into a room, people become...

Pisces

Pisces (February 19 - March 10) If there's one animal that could represent the piece of work that you are, Pisces, it would have to be a squirrel. You're fastidious, quick, and selfish. You hoard until there's nothing left, and you glut yourself until you pop. You are...

Taurus Myth

According to Greek mythology, the constellation Taurus commemorates the god Zeus changing himself into a beautiful white Bull to win the affections of the Phoenician princess Europa. After Europa hopped onto the Bull’s back, the Bull swam across the Mediterranean Sea, taking Europa all the way to the island of Crete.

Taurus Cultural significance

Taurus’ symbology stems from this tale: Zeus was extremely attracted to Europa. Pulling a slight of hand, he changed himself into a white bull and wandered towards Europa who was picking flowers in a nearby field. Europa couldn’t resist petting the bull; then climbed upon the bull’s back and he carried Europa across the sea to Crete, kidnapping her.

The couple had a son, Minos, king of Crete. Minos made a deal with Poseidon, and promised him a beautiful white bull in offering if he could give him mastery over the seas. The god agreed. However, when the time came to sacrifice the bull, he decided to keep it for himself, offering a lesser specimen in its place. The god, in revenge, asked Aphrodite for aid in a plan for retaliation. Aphrodite afflicted Minos’ wife with an uncontrollable lust for the white bull. Pasiphae, unable to suppress her desires, mated with the white bull. The offspring of this union was the Minotaur, a dreadful beast with the body of a man and the head of a bull, which fed on human flesh.

Minos made a deal with Poseidon, and promised him a beautiful white bull in offering if he could give him mastery over the seas.

It was enclosed in an impenetrable labyrinth, where youths were regularly thrown to feed its endless appetite for human flesh. Theseus, son of the King of Athens, volunteered to slay the Minotaur. With the help of Minos’ daughter Ariadne and her ball of thread, he found his way into the labyrinth and killed the Minotaur with a club, finding his way out again through the strand of thread.
