Loyalty is important to a Taurus, and a true friend of a Taurean will speak well of their great generosity.

                Origins in Mythology

  
     Taurus is one of the elder signs in the zodiac. In earlier ages the vernal equinox was located within the realm of the bull, roughly during 4,000-1,700 B.C. In ancient cultures, the year began with Taurus.
     To the Greeks, Taurus is associated with Zeus and his transformation into a snowy white Bull. This he did as a means to abduct Europa, whom he lusted for. Thus, the Minotaur of Crete, result of this union of God and mortal, is also recognized as being associated with the second sign of the zodiac.

  In the Mediterranean region, the Sun's entry into Taurus was celebrated as the Feast of Maya. The Sun was often represented by a white bull with a golden disc between his horns. This image was followed by a procession of virgins, exemplifying the fecundity of nature. This association of Taurus with the beginning of Spring, can be traced as far back as ancient Babylon.
