|All About Gemini|
The third sign of the zodiac, Gemini is ruled by Mercury which represents intelligence inside matter. The glyph of Gemini symbolizes two pieces of wood bound together.In ancient times this was seen to signify the conflicts arising from contradictory mental processes. Geminis establish their relationship between the self and material substance through a balance of
opposing thoughts. This bond may also be interpreted as the link between rhythm and form.
The Geminis Interact with the environment, investigate, learn, know and exchang ideas. The intellect dominates Gemini, and all things intellectual are valued greatly by them. As communication is also of importance to Geminis, knowledge is never a thing to be hoarded. Rarely is a Gemini more entertained than in the midst of exchanging ideas with others of an intellectual nature.
Being the most versatile of the signs, Geminis are seldom what they seem to be. Chameleon like, they will take a stand, voice an opinion, decide on an option and then completely change their mind tomorrow. Nothing is ever written in stone by the Gemini. They are truly a free soul, driven by curiosity and a desire to know . They usually have several things going at once, and within such chaos, they thrive.

Origins in Mythology
The constellation of Gemini has been seen as twin figures by cultures throughout the world, back into prehistory. The Greeks recognized them as Castor and Polydeuces. To the Romans they were Hercules and Apollo. Often perceived as twin boys, the lore sustains that they were placed in the night sky by Jove to honor and exemplify the fidelity of their brotherly love. In other instances they were seen as a sister and brother or two angels, then within later Christian traditions, as Adam and Eve.
Stories of hero twins are also related throughout the world. For the Greeks they were the children of Zeus and Leda, queen of Sparta.The exploits of these twins are many, and all heroic. In their youth they sailed with Jason to retrieve the Golden Fleece.
To the Romans, who knew them as Castor and Pollux, the twins were invoked on the field of battle to assure victory. For centuries beyond they were held as guardians to sailors on extended or risky voyages.
