GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
The ancient Babylonians referred to the constellation as Mastabba Galgal, the ‘Great Twins’, and commemorated within it the mythical friendship of Gilgamesh and Enkidu, who fought against the gods in twelve adventures and so is considered by some to be a reflection of the solar journey through the zodiac.
The Greek recognized the two stars as Hercules and Apollo. Hercules being a Greek development of Gilgamesh. It was the Romans who referred to the stars as Castor and Pollux, the names they are now known as, who were also both great warriors. It has been suggested that these warriors guarded the gate of souls, a special place in the heavens marked by the next constellation - Cancer.
Gemini’s theme is one of duality. A Gemini seeks to reconcile all contradictions where reason and belief, intellect and emotion, masculinity and femininity, merge into one.
