Gemini - The Twins - May 21st - June 21st
Gemini The Twins is the third astrological sign of the Zodiac. The Sun leaves Gemini at the moment of the (northern hemisphere) summer solstice.
In Greek mythology Gemini represents the twin brothers of Castor and Pollux the sons of Leda, with Tyndareus and Zeus as their respective fathers. Having different fathers meant Pollux was immortal though Castor remained a mere mortal. Upon Castor's death Pollux asked Zeus to share his own immortality with his twin to keep them together, and as a result they were transformed into the Gemini constellation we see today.
Gemini is a known as a masculine, positive, extrovert sign. Gemini is considered to be versatile. Gemini is an air sign with the virtue of knowledge.

Gemini is ruled by The Planet Mercury, the winged messenger, which imparts rationality and reasoning on Geminis.
