Gemini (pronunciation: /ˈɛmɪn/ or /ˈɛmɪn/ JEM-in-eye or JEM-in-ee) () is the third astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Gemini. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this sign between May 21 and June 21. The symbol of the twins is based on the Dioscuri, two mortals that were granted shared godhood after death.[1]

Compatibilities[edit]

There are many variables in the astrology chart that determine compatibility of individuals. The position of the Sun, the Moon, the planets and the aspects they form with each other are assessed by astrologers before judgment on compatibility is made. The signs listed as compatible with Gemini do not reflect an individual profile or individual reading as interpreted within astrology, but rather reflect a general guideline and reference to compatibility as dictated by variables such as Qualities and Elements within the Zodiac.[2] The branch of astrology dealing with interpersonal compatibilities is called synastry.
