Taurus is the second astrological sign in the modern zodiac. This sign is associated with several myths and bull worship from several ancient cultures. It was the first sign of the zodiac established among the Mesopotamians, who called it "The Great Bull of Heaven," as it was the constellation through which the Sun rose on the vernal equinox at that time - that is the Early Bronze Age, from about 4000 BC to 1700 BC.

Star Bull has not forgotten his birthright, and proudly wears Aldebaran, one of the brightest stars of the Northern hemisphere, on his cool horns.

Like their celestial spirit animal, Taurus enjoy relaxing in serene, bucolic environments, surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and refined of taste. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the enchanting planet that governs love, beauty, and money. Venus influence make this earth sign the most sensual of the zodiac: this Cosmic Bull is enchanted by any physical manifestation of comfort and luxury.
Taurus, like other earthly signs, refers to plants in a peculiar way. This is not to say that he does not love them, and how can he not love the grass that feeds him or trees in the shadow of which he rests during the midday hours? Yes, he loves them. Well, just need someone else to grow all these weed, flowers, and trees, someone else looked after them, making sure that they are always in good condition and would be apt to give Taurus full portion of sensual pleasures.
But Taurus himself is absolutely indifferent to all plant problems. He does not even bother to remember the names of the plants that give him these little but very valuable joys, preferring to call them some kind of, convenient, themselves invented, names and nicknames.
Taurus likes bright flowers with a pleasant but slight scent and sweet red juicy fruits and berries. Because of its great sensibility to odors, there is very important to strike a delicate balance. For example, Strawberry or Raspberry are red, sweet and juicy but have a rather strong smell; these fruits can cause not only displeasure to Taurus, but even allergies. At the same time, red Mulberry, Passion fruits, Surinam cherry, Watermelon also have red and juicy fruits, but their smell is more delicate, and our sensual hero eats them with a pleasure.
Taurus's planet-ruler is Venus symbolizing sexual love and good appetite. And Taurus, who abuses these carnial joys, is desperate need of medicinal herbs growing in his home, which have the properties to pacify feelings, improve digestion and regulate the endocrine system. Here are these vital plants: Camphor Basil (Plectranthus hadiensis) tomentosus, Anise (Pimpinella anisum), Cloves (Syzygium aromaticum), Mint (Mentha sp), Curry leaf (Murraya koenigii) and Allspice (Pimenta dioica).

Cat Zodiac: Taurus Cats 4/21-5/20

How to know the astrological sign of your cat?
The astrological sign of a cat can be determined by either their date of birth or adoption, as adoption is often considered a second birth for cats. With this information, one can discover the astrological traits that describe the cat, such as their independence, diva-like tendencies, sense of humor, intelligence, and more. Additionally, it's also important to consider the astrological relationship between cats and plants...

Taurus Cats are real sybarites! They are relaxed and seeming not to be worried about anything. It is pragmatic, the Cat who comes down to earth. They enjoy being petted, groomed, and they’re not likely to pass up a meal. They enjoy their food and appreciate it when they get to try something new.
One of the overriding characteristics of Taurus Cats is that they are gourmands. They are greedy pussy cats who put on layers for winter… all year around. They also have impeccable taste in food as they prefer human food to cat food, likely because human food costs more. They are salmon mad… Cheese crazy… And they can even say ‘brie’ in meow-meow language. They save food for later as if it’s money in a bank account. Not great at sharing that food though, so don’t try to make them.

The Taurus Cats are excellent ratters. They do tend to bring their trophies home in return for honor rewards, and if this doesn’t work (we know that with humans, their trophies aren’t always appreciated) the Taurus Cats will learn tricks to earn rewards as they believe in being paid for a job well done.
Taurus Cat which is happy as "a pig in muck" is a real cat show! He is important, full of dignity, and with all his appearance shows that he, and only he, is the best! But they can be awfully miffed if they get offended. It is very difficult to deserve forgiveness from an offended cat. Unless explaining to him that he is the best of the best and treats something especially tasty.

They can also be possessive about their belongings, so don’t take their toy catnip mouse or something else - otherwise will be consequences… He can be capricious and stubborn, but at the same time, he can be the most tender and loving friend to his human.
The Taurus Cats enjoys luxury and soft surroundings, so don't be surprised if they choose your cashmere sweater to sleep on!

They may also enjoy dreaming in a garden, nestled in the shade of plants with soft, broad leaves (and even ON TOP of them if the plant is not large), while a gentle breeze carries the aroma of flowers and herbs. The Cat may listen the chirping birds with half-opened eyes, observing them at the same time - just in case...
