The History of the Twin Zodiac
You’re probably familiar with the twin zodiac as a part of the 48 constellations that Ptolemy, an astronomer from 2nd Century AD, described. However, there’s more to it than that that you should know. For starters, the word “Gemini” is a Latin word that means “twins.” It is named that way as it is today because it represents the twins, Castor and Pollux, from the Greek mythology.
Many people believe that men and women who were born under the said zodiac are versatile, cheerful, and are quick-witted. While Geminis are believed to have such positive sides, there are still several people who see them as someone who is two-faced because of the twins that their zodiac sign represents. Even so, Geminis can still prove that they are still the type of people who are kind-hearted unlike what some people imagine; just look at the Gemini celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman.
