The sign of Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. Physically it is related to the hands and lungs. It is said to have a masculine nature, and is therefore more outwardly oriented in its energy expression. It is an air sign, and this means that it is connected with communication, mental contact, social principles and travel. Gemini is also a mutable sign which gives them flexibility and adaptability.

Planets placed in this sign in a natal chart will often reflect personal intelligence,  tremendous curiosity and a need to exchange ideas with other people in a social environment.

Negative manifestations of Gemini influences are a flightiness and unreliability, and a tendency to get involved with too many things at any one time. There is a love of ideas, but no inner need to put them ALL of them into practice.

Gemini influence confers great mental insight, dynamic creativity,  and stereoscopic vision to planets placed in this sign in natal chart astrology. Planets here manifest considerable versatility and mental skills in regard to all forms of communication.

The Gemini twins are: Castor and Pollux the two children that hatched out of eggs after Zeus/Jupiter seduced Leda in the form of a swan. The mortal twin is Castor (Kastor) and the demigod is Pollux (Polydeuces). After Castor was fatally wounded, Pollux begged Jupiter/Zeus to save his brother even if it meant that Pollux would be giving up his own immortality to save Castor. The two were placed among the stars where they became patron to sailors. In the Gemini constellation, their is a super giant star at the head of each of the twins.

This is an image of the Gemini twins Castor and Pollux. Castor was considered the mortal twin and Pollux is considered the child of Jupiter/Zeus. These twins were also crew members of the Argos in the epic tale of Jason and the Argonauts. The Female Gemini twins are also known as Helen of Troy and Clytemnestra.
