25. Taurus

25. Taurus

Taurus (Bull), second of the Zodiacal Signs, has two main groups of stars in the constellation. One is Hyades, a V-shaped group; the other is the Pleiades cluster. According to fable, the Pleiades are the seven daughters of Atlas turned to stars with their sisters, the Hyades, on account of their virtues and mutual affection. The red star Aldebaran (Follower) so named for following the Pleiades, is principal star in Hyades group, and a navigation star. Mythology says that the god Jupiter took the shape of a bull when he abducted Europa and carried her to Crete.
