People born between April 20th and May 21st belong to the Taurus zodiac star sign. Taurus is the second star sign in the astrological chart, a fixed Earth sign, and represented by the bull. This star sign is all about reward, and those born under it love material goods and the finer things in life.
In fact, there are many unique and interesting qualities believed to be associated with a Taurus, so we’ve put together the top five facts so you can get to know this reliable star sign.
#1 Emerald is the Taurus Birthstone
The top Taurus birthstone is Emerald. This stunning green stone reflects the beauty of the Earth and its rich and luxurious scenery, perfect for anyone born under the fixed earth sign of Taurus. This crystal is known to create a sense of balance and develop and drive deep-rooted feelings of inner peace.
Emeralds can help a Taurus to slow down the pace, reflect, and complete tasks from a different perspective. A Taurus often gravitates towards fine luxuries with expensive price tags. This is where emerald can help prevent unnecessary spending by offering feelings of fulfilment and satisfaction in life.

#2 Taurus is Ruled by the Planet Venus
Ruled by the beautiful planet of Venus, those born under the sign of the bull have a natural connection to planet Earth. They love the feeling that time spent in nature can provide, offering a Taurus space to rebalance and recharge.
Taurus is often thought of as the “builders” of the zodiac. They love having abundance in their lives, especially in material possessions and goods, which makes sense as Venus is the planet that governs love, beauty, and money. Their hard-working nature assists a Taurus in achieving their goals, whilst their attraction towards the finer things in life means they can truly enjoy the fruits of their labour.
#3 The Taurus Zodiac Symbol is the Bull
The symbol of the bull represents steady perseverance. A bull tends to be calm and relaxed until provoked, where they can experience anger with a fiery temper.
According to Greek Mythology, the constellation Taurus honours Zeus, who changed himself into a white bull to win the love of Princess Europa. With the princess on his back, the bull swam across the Mediterranean Sea to the island of Crete, Greece. Together they shared a son who was known as “the good king” Minos.
#4 Taurus is a Fixed Earth Star Sign
There are three Earth signs, including Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Earth signs share similar qualities, including stability, practicality, and sensuality. Additionally, being born under a fixed Earth sign means a Taurus takes their time to absorb new skills but rarely forgets any lesson learnt.
The influence of a fixed sign is powerful, and the three star signs that fall under this are often described as stubborn, due to being very deep-rooted to their moral compass in life. When it comes to Taurus, their grounding energy makes them inherently loyal, and they see a plan through to the very end, no matter how many hurdles they may face along the way.
#5 The Taurus Constellation is one of the Oldest
The Taurus constellation can be found in the winter sky of the Northern Hemisphere’s. It’s one of the oldest constellations, dating back to the early Bronze Age, where it marked the sun’s location during the Spring Equinox.
The constellation’s brightest star, Aldebaran, translated from Arabic, means “the follower” and is the 14th brightest star in the night sky.
