The Charging or Wall Street Bull, New York City

Besides “green” gardens, Taurus is also the sign associated with money, so it is no coincidence that the term “greenback” – another name for the dollar, refers back to the 1st paper currency that was issued in the United States during the American Civil War – and to this day, our currency remains green in color, does it not?

And should you stroll around lower Manhattan in the financial district, you may well come across the famous bronze statue known as the Charging Bull or Wall Street Bull, with the bull being the symbol of aggressive financial optimism and prosperity – in other words – banking & money! It’s not a statue of a rabbit, or a pigeon, or an elephant – it’s a bull, because the sign of Taurus, the bull, is the sign associated with not just possessions, but with the ultimate of physical possessions – money! So our quote this month comes from a famous actress, singer, film director, and a Taurus, Barbara Streisand, who was born on April 24th and has a lot of it!

“I can’t stand to see red in my profit-or-loss column. I’m Taurus the bull, so I react to red. If I see it, I sell my stocks quickly.”

Barbra Streisand, singer/actress
