The ancient Greeks believed that Zeus placed the constellation of Taurus in the sky to commemorate the great bull. According to this mythology, Zeus transformed himself into a white bull to carry away Europa, princess and daughter to the King of Phoencia. He bore here across the ocean to the Isle of Crete, where, while still in the form of a bull, he made love to her. The bull has had a long history of special significance to the people of Crete.
Astrologers draw many similarities between the Taurean temperament and the bull. Some examples include stubbornness, stability, and a strong connection to the earth and natural world. The glyph for the Taurus zodiac sign represents the head and horns of a bull as well.
