Gemini is a constellation bounded by Cancer, Leo, Orion, Auriga, Canis Minor, Monoceros, Lynx. Its named stars are (Alpha to Xi): Castor, Pollux, Alhena, Wasat, Mebsuta, Mekbuta, Tejat Prior, Propus, Tejat Posterior, Alzirr. Traditionally, people born from May 21 to June 21 (or June 22, depending on when the Summer Solstice falls) are considered Gemini. Gemini is Latin for "twins".
In Greek mythology, the constellation Gemini was considered to represent Castor and Pollux, mythical twins (called Dioscuri in Greek, the word for "twins" in Greek as well as the Gemini constellation in Greek). One of the twins was immortal (Pollux), one of the twins was mortal (Castor). Both were Argonauts, who sailed with Jason on various missions. Castor was considered a skilled soldier. Pollux was considered a skilled boxer. When Castor was killed, Pollux petitioned Zeus to share his own gift of immortality with his slain brother. Zeus then decided to immortalize the twins as a constellation.
