Hey Taurus fam — it’s your season!
Starting from April 20 and ending on May 20, those that rep the Earth sign, one symbolized by a bull no less, take over with a serene energy and love for the finer things in life. Actually, that pretty much sounds like a dead-on description of some famous Taurus celebs that come to mind, including the soulful spirit of jazz legend Duke Ellington all the way to the rock-hard stature and nature of wrestler-turned-Highest-Paid-Hollywood-actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Yeah…The Scorpion King deserves all his creds!
