Gemini (♊) is the third astrological sign in the zodiac, which spans the zodiac between the 60th and 89th degree of the celestial longitude.
In the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area of the zodiac between May 21st to June 20th each year and in sidereal astrology, the Sun currently transits the constellation of Gemini from June 16th to July 15th (approximately).
Individuals born during these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Geminians.
The sign is symbolized by ‘the twins’, which also presents duality – the ability to relate to opposing visions simultaneously, to possess dexterity and a talent for multi-tasking.
In India it is not a figure of twins as in the West, but that of a man and woman representing Mithuna, a couple.
