The bull: symbol of stubbornness

Few animals are as stubborn as bulls. Rodeo enthusiasts know it well: these beasts are not easily ridden.

We are indeed talking here about an animal with qualities of stubbornness, ferocity, tyranny, brutality.

Although these traits may seem negative, they can turn out to be positive in some cases.

Taurus are known to be stubborn because if they don't want to do something, they won't do it. They will dig their feet into the ground and resist with everything they have in them.

A bull will never let his toes be walked on, and it takes a lot to influence his opinion. Such an animal is therefore a born leader.

The expression “taking the bull by the horns”, which refers to tackling a difficult situation head-on, shows us this well: the symbol of the bull is that of stubbornness.

The bull: symbol of virility

From an esoteric point of view, the meaning of the bull is that of a solar being linked to the purest masculine energy.

The horns of the bull constitute a phallic symbol of power and fertility.

Having a horn is an affirmation of power and the desire for domination that lies dormant deep within men.

With its musculature, the bull is overflowing with testosterone and other male hormones. He loves fighting, is territorial and knows how to protect his females.

The Taurus is also a tutelary father who, although arrogant, provides support to those close to him.

In short, choosing the bull symbol as a lucky charm will strengthen your virility and your masculine qualities.

Typically, some people like to place such a lucky statuette in their living room. On the one hand, it protects their living space. On the other hand, it increases their personal power.

The lucky bull in Spanish culture

Since the Iberian Peninsula has been inhabited, the bull has been a revered animal. In fact, there is no culture where it is given a greater place.

In Spain, the bull is a symbol of fertility and power used by men. Festivals are celebrated in his honor and many Spanish traditions tell us about the bull.

If you ever visit Spain (and, more specifically, Andalusia), you may even see gigantic statues of bulls in the countryside landscape.

Known as the “ Osborne Bulls, ” their story is quite amusing.

In fact, these bulls were born in 1956 as part of an advertising campaign by the “Osborne Sherry” company for one of its drinks, “Veteran Brandy”. The design of the bull is the work of the artist Manolo Prieto and the statues were built in the workshop of the brothers José and Féliz Tejada Prieto.

Although impulsive and very sanguine, those placed under the bull totem know how to be solid in the face of periods of emotional turmoil. They are good advice and sincere friends who will defend theirs at all costs.

The bull totem animal is necessarily linked to masculine vigor and virility. Even if it is not impossible for women to be placed under his protection, it remains quite rare.

The most remarkable thing about the bull is its unparalleled strength, its pure physical power derived from its musculature. As a spiritual totem, the bull therefore gives you a dominant and powerful personality.

This means you won't be the type to let yourself be walked on. You don't allow people to dominate you.

In short, the Taurus is a spiritual guide who will invite you to defend your loved ones and take charge of your social circles, whether friendly or professional.

The sign of Taurus in the zodiac

Dreaming of a bull: what messages?

Dreaming of a bull is often a wake-up call. Big challenges await you soon, and you would do well to prepare yourself for them. So also sharpen your competitive spirit.

Don't worry, however: seeing a bull in a dream indicates that you will succeed in overcoming difficulties. So have confidence in yourself, the same confidence that the bull has.

Do not give in to adversity but, on the contrary, rush towards your opponents.

Be careful though: if you dream of a bull charging towards you, the message will be different. More precisely, it will be about fears and anxieties.

If you have been charged by a bull in your dreams, ask yourself if there is a decision to make that is paralyzing you and preventing you from taking control of your life.

Another possible meaning: seeing the Taurus constellation shining in the sky is a sign of hope. This indicates that, in your dreams as in your life, the stars work to bring you more strength.

If you don't know what the Taurus constellation looks like and you're afraid of missing it in your dreams, here is its place in a starry sky map.
