    To take the bull by the horns means to face a difficulty or grapple with it without avoiding it.

    Hi

    “Take the bull by the horns” is supposed to mean to “take control” of the situation and get right to work.
    To take charge of your career or money is to “take the bull by the horns”.
    “To get to work and make things go the way you want them too” is what is ment by “take the bull by the horns”.
    I hope this helps.
