Comparison with its symbol, the Bull:

Taurus the Bull SymbolFor centuries, the bull has been a symbol of strength, tenacity, virility, and power. Left alone, a bull will happily graze; but if it is bothered, it will charge! Similarly, the Taurus personality is thought to be calm and peaceful, but when their anger is aroused, their temper can be wicked. Taureans are often quite disturbed by sudden changes–they prefer their lives stable and secure.

Taureans are thought to be persevering, strong individuals, who can also be quite “bull-headed”. They can be dogged and determined when they have a goal in mind. Taureans are also quite sensual and, often, self-indulgent “beasts”.

The glyph for Taurus, quite simply, represents the bull’s head and horns.
