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.1
In astrology, a planet's domicile is the zodiac sign over which it has rulership. The term domicile also applies to the House in which a planet rules. Domicile is from the Latin domicilium whose root means house. As with the sign of Libra, Venus is the planet usually considered to rule Taurus. The Houses where Venus has Domicile are the 2nd and 7th Houses of one's natal chart. Venus, being named after the Roman goddess of beauty and love, is the planet most associated with love, beauty, harmony, and sexuality. The Roman goddess has her Greek counterpart in Aphrodite, from whose name we get the word aphrodisiac.
