Why do we mainly manifest the negative aspect of the zodiac signs?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
TAURINES are like oxen, humble and hard. workers, but when they become furious they are terrible like the Bull.
In their lives, TAURINES undergo GREAT AMOROUS DECEPTIONS; they are reserved, conservative; they follow step-by-step, like the ox, the outlined path.
TAURINES are very sensitive. Anger in TAURINES is of slow growth and customarily culminates in strong volcanic outbursts.
The mediocre type of TAURUS is customarily very egotistical, gluttonous, quarrelsome, passionate, irate and proud.
The superior type of TAURUS is full of LOVE, loves classical music, wisdom, works happily for humanity, is very intelligent, comprehensive, faithful, sincere in friendship, a good Father, Mother, good friend, good brother, good citizen, etc.
The MYSTICAL GREATNESS of the MITHRAIC BULL that is not comprehended by the superficial people of this TENEBROUS era of the twentieth century, later degenerated into the worship of the GOLDEN CALF.
The SACRED COW symbolizes ISIS, the DIVINE MOTHER and her CALF or HEIFER represents MERCURY, the MESSENGER of the GODS, the KABIR, the LOGOS.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
In another aspect, the bull reminds us of the constellation of Taurus or the bull, any zodiacal constellation has its positive and negative aspect, we, because of the ego, end up polarizing ourselves with the negative aspect of the signs, in the case of people ruled by this sign, they are usually angry, like the bull when provoked; earthly, attached to material things. On the positive side they are tenacious, hard-working, patient.
The negative aspect of the bull is represented by the Greek minotaur, which has a human body and a bull's head, an extraordinary representation of our animal ego. Mythology affirms that he resided in a labyrinth, a symbol of the innumerable psychological hiding places that we have in our minds and of the wrong theories and dogmas of the outside world. So we have a double aspect in the meaning of the bull, one positive and the other negative.
In its superior aspect, within the Egyptian culture, the bull symbolizes Osiris, the cow Isis and the calf Horus, the Christ.
