“Cher paying tribute to the Queen and accidentally calling her an ox is too much to handle today,” wrote one Twitter user.

Followers were extremely confused as to why Cher had described the queen as a cow or an ox, with some thinking it was a reference to the Queen’s famous love of cows, and others believing Cher had used the wrong emoji, meaning to describe the late monarch as the GOAT.
But finally social media solved the riddle, realising that Queen Elizabeth, like Cher, was a taurus.
“For a moment I was shocked that Cher had called our Queen a cow,” wrote a Twitter user.
“Thankfully I read the comments where the [emoji] was explained and realised she meant a Taurus.”

Queen Elizabeth II’s sun sign was in Taurus at 0°, making her the most Taurus Taurus possible. She was also Capricorn rising with a Leo moon.
