Our physical senses are in full bloom during spring, and sensual Taurus loves the smell, look, and feel of new life growing all around!
Like the fresh and lush pasture the Bull resides in, Taurus’ color is green. This color nourishes. Just like in nature, green represents growth, and Taurus is a sign of absolute progress. The return of green in the springtime -- Taurus’ season -- further enhances its connection to this sign.
