Astrology

Taking from the twins that represent it, Gemini is considered by astrologists as one of the most important of the zodiacs since it captures someone's most basic "levels."[5] For instance, it articulates their dual nature, a species with the so-called lower self and higher self as well as the way they are bilaterally symmetrical.[5] Gemini is also considered by astrology followers as the most adaptable sign of the zodiac owing to the so-called mutable energy that allows individuals within this sign the so-called capability to view life from different angles.[6]

NASA named its two-person space capsule Project Gemini after the zodiac sign because the spacecraft could carry two astronauts.[7]
