What is the Taurus spirit animal? It is an animal that portrays the personality traits of the Taurus personality.
The bull is the symbol of Taurus. For Taurus who is hardworking, strong, powerful, virile, passionate, dependable, and elegant, the bull is the most befitting spirit animal. It embodies almost all traits of Taurus.
In many cultures, the bull is an icon representing wealth, order, and stability. Taurus is known for his/her aspirations for order, wealth, and stability in all aspects of life.
Taurus, April 20th to May 20th, is sometimes extravagant with a high desire for great things. This however makes him needy and ungrateful.
Without further ado, here is the list of Taurus Spirit animals:
1. The bull:
Stubbornness. The bull is a bloody-minded animal. It wants what it wants. Only physical confrontation from another bull can stop its pursuit of dominance. It will take you a lot of effort to make Taurean change his mind. They stick to their opinions until proved otherwise. They actually know it and often admit finding a hard time changing their minds.
Physical strength and power. Taurus people understand the value of physical strength and power. They are usually well built and strong. Those small in size, usually strive for power or at least get as physically strong as they can get. The bull oozes physical strength. It fights for power in the herd. Just like Taureans, the bull understands the mightiness of strength and power.
Extreme tenacity. Taurus and the bull have a strong and very passionate commitment to what they choose to do. They focus on a task with maximum tenaciousness to get the best out of their efforts.

Taurus is known to be wealthy and it’s no wonder that the bull is a sign of wealth.
