King of Spades – Taurus
The sun winds it’s way through the bull from April 20th to May 20th. Taurus’ chief characteristic is, “I have” while it’s best quality is stability and it’s worst quality is obstinacy. The constellation of the bull is surely one of the oldest. All the ancient zodiacs that have come down to us have the bull as the first zodiac, even the civilizations of South America opened their year with the “ox.” This is the bull that carried Europa to Jupiter. The holiday of May Day we celebrate today is one of the last surviving parts of the Tauric festival practiced by the Druids when the sun was in Taurus.
