Taurus (♉) is the second astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the 30-60th degree of the zodiac, between 27.25 and 54.75 degree of celestial longitude. Under the tropic zodiac, the Sun transits this area on average between April 20 to May 20 each year. Under the sidereal zodiac, the sun currently transits the constellation of Taurus from May 16 to June 15 (approximately). Individuals born during these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Taureans.
In astrology, a planet's domicile is the zodiac sign over which it has rulership. The planet ruling Taurus is Venus, the planet of love, beauty, harmony, and sexuality. The planet of Venus is equivalent to the Greek counterpart of the goddess, Aphrodite.
