Its name is Latin for “twins,” and it is associated with the twins Castor and Pollux in Greek mythology. Its symbol is Gemini.svg. These were born from an egg after their mother, Leda, Queen of Sparta, had been seduced by Zeus, disguised as a swan. Although only half brothers, Castor, the mortal son of Leda’s husband, King Tyndareus, and Polydeuces, immortal son of Zeus, were extremely close and together took part in many adventures.
