Taurus, the ox, is the zodiac sign for Iyar.
The sign is Taurus, a black bull or ox, and in one somewhat convoluted interpretation it has a place in the Creation of the world.
God refused, declaring that the world must first be illumined. So God created light and called it Day.
Only then, as the second act of Creation, did God fashion darkness and call it Night.
The white ram of Nissan, the first month, represents the light.
The black ox, symbol of the dark, became the sign of the second month, Iyar.
The dark parts of mans life being illuminated with God’s light, exchanging the blessing with a curse.
The “shor (the ox)” (the left face of the Divine Chariot) represents the spiritual origin of the “animal soul” of man.
In Hebrew, the root ” shor ” also means to look or observe. Iyar is the month of introspection for the sake of self improvement.
