The Taurus symbol, or glyph, is designed to depict the head of a Bull with horns. This is the Taurus horoscope symbol and the character that represents this zodiac sign.
Each zodiac sign has a special symbol, or glyph, that’s associated with the mythology behind it. For example, Sagittarius is ruled by the mythical Centaur—the Archer—so its glyph resembles an arrow pointed skyward. Taurus is symbolized by the Bull and its glyph is an upside-down triangle with two horns on top. Almost all of the 12 zodiac signs are depicted by an animal, with the exception of Gemini, Virgo and Libra. The Taurus symbol also has a unique meaning.
What animal is the Taurus symbol?
The Taurus horoscope symbol is the head of the Bull with large curving horns. The Taurus sign symbol is usually depicted as a very simple graphic meant to resemble the head of the Bull. Taurus dates typically fall from April 20 to May 20. Stubbornness, persistence and hard work are the main Taurus traits. Thus, the Taurus symbol of the Bull expresses the security and habits of this zodiac sign’s slow and steady perseverance. As a grounded earth sign and a stabilizing fixed sign, Taurus is the persistent provider of the zodiac, the sign that helps us seek security, enjoy earthly pleasures and get the job done.
