Gemini (astrology)

Gemini (pronunciation: JEM-in-eye (♊︎)[2] is the third astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Gemini. It is a positive mutable sign. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this sign between about 21 May to 21 June.[3] Gemini is represented by the twins, Castor and Pollux,[4] known as the Dioscuri.

Taking from the twins that represent it, Gemini is considered by astrologists as one of the most important of the zodiacs since it captures someone's most basic "levels".[5] For instance, it articulates their dual nature, a species with the so-called lower self and higher self as well as the way they are bilaterally symmetrical.[5] Gemini is also considered by astrology followers as the most adaptable sign of the zodiac owing to the so-called mutable energy that allows individuals within this sign the so-called capability to view life from different angles.[6]

NASA named its two-person space capsule Project Gemini after the zodiac sign because the spacecraft could carry two astronauts.[7]
