Those born between May 20th and June 21st are born under the third sign of the zodiac, Gemini. As with previous months, we will be taking an in depth look at the star sign, discussing its history and mythology as well as the unique traits of a Gemini. Basic Facts: Your element: Air Your ruling planets: Mercury Symbol: The Twins Your stone: Pearl History & Mythology The word ‘Gemini’ comes from the Indo-European root ‘yem’ (to pair), and is also the Latin word for “twins.” In ancient Rome the sign stood for life and death and was the symbol of coexistence between the mortal and immortal parts of man, deriving from a story in Greek Mythology. The twins of Gemini are usually represented as Castor and Pollux, the sons of Zeus and Leda. Castor was a renowned horseman while Pollux was a boxer. During a dispute over a cattle raid with their cousins, Castor met his death and Pollux, was granted immortality by Zeus. However he persuaded his father to share the gift with his brother Castor, and the two twins lived on spending alternate days on Olympus as gods, and in Hades as mortals. The history of the story depicts a strong love bond between the two twins and their traits can be recognised in the personalities of those born under the star sign Gemini. Traits All signs of the zodiac have their positive traits as well as their darker side, however this is perhaps more notable in the Gemini. Geminis can be enthusiastic and insightful but also restless and unfocused. The world of a Gemini is one of duality. Gemini can like one thing and its opposite and their traits range from one end of the spectrum to the other. As a Gemini, a lot of your positive qualities come from your light hearted, social side. You are popular amongst others and love to talk, with the ability to hold different conversations all at once! You have a wide variety of interests, and are happiest when you have plenty of friends and people around you. Gemini is the multi-tasker of the zodiac, often with various projects and ideas on the go at once. While having such a busy schedule often leads to a colourful and interesting life, your short attention span means that you bore easily and find it hard to finish everything you’ve started. On the same note you may also tire of people just as easily, making it hard for you to build strong friendships or romances. Beware – your boundless energy and curiosity may end up distracting you from what is really important. Famous Gemini Geminis are often greatly talented, and many of them go on to become writers, actors and singers. As a Gemini, you share your star sign with some of the most powerful and influential figures in the world. Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Marilyn Monroe and Paul McCartney, were all born under the star sign Gemini. Their great abilities to speak to people, and maintain many different talents (and excel at all) make them typical yet unique.
