About Gemini Horoscopes
Gemini is the third astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Gemini. In Western Astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Gemini is considered a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign which can influence gemini horoscopes. It is also considered an air sign, and is one of four mutable signs. Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. Being the 3rd sign in the zodiac, Gemini is associated with the astrological 3rd house. The astrological symbol for Gemini is the Roman numeral for two, to represent the twins and duality effecting gemini horoscopes. The Indian equivalent of Gemini is Mithuna. The Chinese equivalent is thought to be the quick-witted, adventurous Horse, whose lunar month is 6 June - 6 July.
Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Gemini individuals and have gemini horoscopes. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in the sign of Gemini roughly from May 21 to June 21. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly from June 15 to July 15. Gemini is widely thought to be compatible with Aquarius and Libra. Therefore, when they come into contact with these signs there can be love in gemini horoscopes.
Gemini is associated with the Greek myth of Castor (or Kastor) and Pollux and with the Greco-Roman god Hermes/Mercury and sometimes also the gods Loki, Asklepios/Aesculapius, and Veles and the goddesses Eris/Discordia, Hebe, and Ate. Being twins, Gemini can also sometimes be associated with the Greek twins Apollo and Artemis.
