Gemini (pronunciation: /ˈɛmɪn/ or /ˈɛmɪn/ JEM-in-eye or JEM-in-ee) ()[2] is the third astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Gemini. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this sign between May 21 and June 21. Gemini is represented by the twins Castor and Pollux.[3] The symbol of the twins is based on the Dioscuri, one mortal and one immortal, that were granted shared half-immortality after the death of the mortal brother (Castor).[4]

Other[edit]

NASA called their two-person space capsule Project Gemini after the zodiac, because the spacecraft could carry two astronauts.
