According to the tropical astrology, Gemini is the third zodiac sign on the zodiac circle and represents the transition of the Sun through the sign of the Twins between May 21 and June 20 every year.

The Twins is the first human symbol to appear in the zodiac, after the first two animal symbols. This is an indication that this sign refers to the human process of thoughts, to communication and human interaction.

The Gemini native is curious by nature, friendly and open to novelty. He or she lives in their own world of ideas and is in a constant search for accomplishment.

Symbolism and history of the Twins

The Twins in the Gemini astrology meaning are the representative figure of the process of interaction and communication between two humans. Usually, the two faces depicted are those of the Greek mythology brothers Castor and Pollux.

Despite them being half-brothers, it seems that these two created a strong connection between them and were always together in permanent action and quenching their thirst for new experiences.

Unfortunately, when one of them died in war, the other took his own life just to be reunited with his brother. As a sign of remembrance, Zeus placed both of them in the sky, creating the Gemini contellation.

Gemini Symbol

Whilst the sign is often depicted as two human figures that are alike, sometimes a man and a woman, the glyph consists of two vertical lines connected by two horizontal lines, one at the top and one at the bottom. These vertical lines are pillars of wisdom supported at the bottom by earth matters and at the top by the metaphysical.

Characteristics of the Twins

This is, first of all, a sign of duality, moving in the same direction, always together and always appearing to want the same things. It suggests that even opposites attract and that all in life is made out of a union of forces.

This is also the symbol of knowledge, curiosity and communicative approach.

The Gemini native is original, keen to discover the world and sometimes a bit unstable in his desire to discover everything life has to offer.

This is a symbol of youth and of growth through discovery and knowledge. It suggests the ability of humans to exchange ideas and create together.

This is why Gemini people tend to crave for the attention and company of others and some even make it a purpose in life to find their soul mate. This sign is rarely seen alone and can only develop in good company.

The duality of the sign indicates that these natives are versatile and complex and that their whole world is a personal organized chaos.
