Revelation 1:20 – As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches. (ESV)

Taurus is a figure of an ox or bull. It contains the star Pleiades, which in Hebrew is Succoth, meaning the Feast of Tabernacles. Pleiades is actually a cluster of seven stars, which is what Revelation is referring to as I talked about here. According to Chronicles, 70 bulls were sacrificed at the Feast of Tabernacles. The Feast of Tabernacles is symbolic of the Age of Tabernacles, in which Christ will come again and rule for 1,000 years.
