April 21 through May 21
The constellation of Taurus is a bull, stubborn, strong, steady, and slow to anger.
Taurus is an earth sign. Earth signs are rocks. Well, obviously.
Taurus' ruling planet is Venus. Venus is the Roman goddess of beauty and the arts, pleasure, and emotion.

As I am finding it difficult to find my own words (as usual. sigh.), I will again quote The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need:
'Taurus is a fixed sign, which means its natives are not fond of change. You simply cannot be rushed into anything new. A different approach creates anxiety in you. You are most comfortable with the familiar, and your attitude might be summed up as "If everything is working fine the way it is, why try something new?"'
Please, fill in my monstruous gaps...
