AstrologyEdit

Taking from the twins that represent it, Gemini is considered one of the most important of the zodiacs since it captures man's most basic levels.[4] For instance, it articulates man's dual nature, a specie with lower self and higher self as well as the way he is bilaterally symmetrical.[4] Gemini is also considered the most adaptable sign of the zodiac owing to the so-called mutable energy that allow individuals within this sign the capability to view life from different angles.[5]

OtherEdit

NASA named its two-person space capsule Project Gemini after the zodiac sign because the spacecraft could carry two astronauts.
