Under the tropical zodiac, the sun will transit the sign Gemini from tomorrow until approximately June 21. Gemini, Latin for “twins,” is represented by twin half-brothers in Roman and Greek mythology, Castor and Pollux—the names of the two brightest stars in the constellation Gemini. With 85 stars in the constellation visible to the naked eye, it should be easy to spot in the night sky. According to astrology, a person’s actions and personality traits are influenced by the position of celestial bodies at their time of birth. Astrology celebrates the Gemini’s charisma, high energy and “life of the party” attitude. However, their downfall is being indecisive, scatterbrained and having a reputation for being two-faced. They’re described as being “two people in one.” Famous Geminis include Kanye West (makes sense), Naomi Campbell (makes even more sense) and Marilyn Monroe.
