Gemini’s are usually easy going, clever and witty. They can also be rather flirtatious, as they have a natural way of charming others that makes them very popular. Read on to find out more about the Zodiac sign of Gemini and get ideas on how to spoil them on their birthday. 


Gemini is the sign of the Twins. It is the third sign of the zodiac and is one of the most complex.. The sun enters this sign on May 21 and leaves on June 20.

The Gemini’s love of talking and the fact that they are always mentally busy makes them excellent communicators, good friends, and avid listeners. They will talk to you when you’re upset and listen when you need someone to confide in – which is why their friends love them so much.

Flexibility, curiosity and wit are other hallmarks of this sign. Geminis are also very curious, each twin seeking out differing experiences and ideas through their individual lives. Geminis typically have many interests, not all of which tie together directly in any way other than that they ‘interest’ the Gemini.

All things considered, Gemini is a very versatile sign; quick-witted, outspoken, imaginative and full of energy!

In the sky
In Greek mythology, Pollux and Castor were inseparable twin brothers and these are also the names of the brightest stars in the Gemini constellation.

Their mother, Leda the queen of Sparta was forcefully seduced by Zeus who turned into a swan to carry out his intent. She gave birth to Pollux and Helen.

Pollux was immortal as he was Zeus’s offspring. Castor was mortal; his father was Tyndareus the ruler of Sparta and Leda’s husband. For her husband Leda bestowed him with Castor and Clytemnestra.

Castor was an excellent fighter and even taught Heracles how to fence, but it was not enough when they engaged in a battle with two men who were also interested in the women that had chosen the twins. Pollux begged Zeus his father to let him share his immortality with his dead brother Castor. Zeus agreed and placed the brothers in the sky, where they till this day remain the Gemini constellation. 


The classic Gemini constellation is made out of two brightest stars for each twin’s heads – Pollux and Castor. 

Pollux is 33 light years away from earth with a surface color that is a light yellowish orange and the star is twice as massive as our Sun. Castor is 51 light years away and is a blue main sequence star about 2.7 times bigger than our Sun. The rest of the fainter stars make up the body of the Gemini constellation.
