Gemini is fairly easy to spot in the sky and it is one of the few constellations that actually look like their namesake. The Constellation, located in the northern hemisphere, can be seen with the naked eye. 

Gemini are highly intelligent and have a strong need to experience the world on their own. They are extremely independent, freedom is essential to their mental well being. They will not be pinned down by anyone or any rules. They are brimming with energy and vitality; they are clever with words, intelligent, very adaptable to every situation. 

Gemini constellation was named after the mythical twins Castor and Pollux. Two of the constellation’s brightest stars carry the twin’s names. Even though Gemini are extremely independent, the mythical twins grew up together and after a time became very close, even inseparable. When Castor eventually died in the Trojan War, Pollux was devastated and asked Zeus, his father, to bring him back to life. The ruler of the Olympians listened to his son’s request and decided to make Castor immortal as well and the two of them are together forever. In Antiquity they were seen as the patron saint of sailors, and were said to have been given the power to rescue sailors who were shipwrecked by the all-powerful Poseidon. 

Gemini like to live their mark on anyone they meet. They are independent mentors and eagerly share their experiences. In Hindu mythology, Yama and his twin sister Yami, later his wife, were the first couple to inhabit the earth. It shows how high Gemini were rated in the mythical hierarchy. Not without a reason the Gemini were the Ape of the early Chinese solar zodiac, the Ape symbolizing our progenitors.
