Gemini is the name of a constellation that represents two twins. Occasionally, it is referred to as the Twins.
A constellation is a group of stars that appear close to one another in the sky, especially a named group.
Gemini is one of the 12 zodiacal constellations or constellations that appear inside the zodiac’s defined region of the sky.
In astronomy, the zodiac is the region of the sky along which the apparent motion of the sun, moon, and planets can be observed.
Despite its origins in astronomy, the term zodiac is most commonly linked with and used in the context of astrology, the pseudoscience in which the placements of celestial bodies at specific times are believed to impact or be correlated with human behavior and events.
In astrology, zodiac refers to a diagram (typically circular) depicting the zodiac belt and displaying the symbols associated with each of the 12 constellations or parts, known as zodiac signs.
Gemini is among these zodiac signs. It is the third sign of the zodiac and is located between Taurus and Cancer.

Gemini According to Astrology
According to astrology, Gemini Zodiac Sign is the third sign of the zodiac, regulating the time from about May 21 to June 21. It is symbolized as a pair of twins (or in Egyptian astrology by a pair of goats and in Arabian astrology by a pair of peacocks).
In addition to being identified as Castor and Pollux, the twins have also been associated with other famous couples, such as the younger and elder Horus or Romulus and Remus.
What is the 3rd Zodiac? Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Castor and Pollux are the brightest stars in Gemini (Alpha and Beta Geminorum), with Pollux having a magnitude of 1.15 and ranking as the seventeenth brightest star in the sky.
Gemini contains the summer solstice, the northernmost point reached by the Sun on its apparent annual trip through the stars. This constellation contains the pulsar Geminga as well.
Have you ever been so occupied that you wished you could duplicate yourself in order to accomplish everything? That encapsulates the Gemini experience.
Gemini is spontaneous, playful, and endearingly eccentric due to its voracious curiosity. Appropriately represented by the celestial twins, this air sign has so many interests that it had to duplicate itself.
The Traits of the Gemini Zodiac Sign
Strengths: Mild, affable, inquisitive, adaptable, quick to learn, and able to exchange ideas.

Gemini likes music, reading, publications, conversations with practically anyone, and short city excursions.

What is the Gemini Sign?
Gemini’s sign signifies a partner. It also depicts the Babylonian Great Twins, the Greek Castor and Pollux, or the Roman numeral 2 (II). This constellation resembles two twins holding hands, and the emblem represents the unshakable tie between brothers.
Mercury’s symbol consists of a circle and a cross below it, like Venus’s, but with a crescent at the top.
Mind is represented by a crescent, spirit by a circle, and physical substance by a cross.
This sign represents the divine and physical natures of the mind (Gemini) (Virgo). The crescent’s “horns” are also associated with the Roman god Mercury’s winged headdress. This god was also represented by a caduceus, a staff encircled by two snakes.
Gemini’s Ruling Planet
Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, which was named after the Roman god of communication, eloquence, travelers, boundaries, deception, good fortune, and thieves. Additionally, he guided souls to the underworld.
Its Greek counterpart is Hermes, a messenger who swiftly travels between the mortal and divine realms.
