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).
