The modern constellation Gemini lies across two of the quadrants, symbolized by the The White Tiger of the West (西方白虎, Xī Fāng Bái Hǔ) and The Vermilion Bird of the South (南方朱雀, Nán Fāng Zhū Què), that divide the sky in traditional Chinese uranography.

The name of the western constellation in modern Chinese is 雙子座 (shuāng zǐ zuò), meaning "the twin constellation".
