In Western Astrology the sun is in the sign of Taurus from April 20 to May 20 in the tropical zodiac and May 14 to June 19 in the sidereal zodiac. In the tropical zodiac it represents the newly re-established life of springtime. In siderial astrology it is associated with the constellation Taurus and is associated with the Greek myth of the bull-form taken by Zeus in order to win Europa. Venus is the ruler of the sign. The Moon is in its exaltation here, while Uranus is considered to be in its fall and Mars traditionally in its detriment. Taurus is a fixed Earth sign. According to astrology, those under its influence are typically conservative and appreciate the finer things in life. They are highly sensual. Additionally, they are the more sentimental and emotive of the Earth signs. Considered calm, generous, and loyal friends, Taureans are also known for being stubborn and jealous, and possessing extremely violent tempers, the latter of which is rarely displayed, but unforgettable. The areas of the body under Taurus' control are the neck and throat. Venus in Taurus is meanwhile associated with a pleasant singing voice. A stout physique can also be indicated by Taurus influence, especially with the Ascendant.
