In Babylonian astronomy, the stars Pollux and Castor were known as the Great Twins. Their names were Lugal-irra and Meslamta-ea, meaning "The Mighty King" and "The One who has arisen from the Underworld". Both names are titles of Nergal, a major Babylonian god of plague and pestilence, who was king of the underworld.
In Greek mythology, Gemini is associated with the myth of Castor and Pollux. Pollux was the son of Zeus, who seduced Leda, while Castor was the son of Tyndareus, the king of Sparta and Leda's husband. When Castor died, because he was a mortal, Pollux begged his father Zeus to give Castor immortality, which was done through uniting them together in the heavens.

The General Feel
Apart from the dance of the old with the new, overcome and eccentric, tradition and freedom, Geminis are about to have their spiritual world provoked and their feelings pushed to become a priority many times in 2021. The promise of the future comes with the beginning of the year, but the first several months will not be easy, not even with strong support of their fast mind and the transition of Saturn and Jupiter into Aquarius. Beliefs are being reshaped and must be changed to fit more freedom for matters of the heart and choices that are spontaneous and liberating, instead of being solely smart and rational.
The heart will no longer tolerate your need to overthink or rush into explanations that the mind has to offer while trying to camouflage the emotion that is bubbling up beneath the surface. You might as well let go, make a mess or two, rush into extreme, risky, or “crazy” adventures, and see if the consequences are as rough as you imagined they would be. Perhaps it is better to seem stupid or irrational than to get stuck, away from honest processes that you must attend to within. You already have enough responsibility on your shoulders as it is. Take the time for silly things that will get you excited and make you smile. There is nothing that the right dialogue and inspiring friendship filled with humor cannot heal in the following months.
The Greatest Challenges
You are too quick for your own good. The force of initiative and common sense that you are trying to push through seem to not be enough for current situations and circumstances. This problem is about to culminate in June, when you could have real trouble focusing on anything productive, especially if you fall in love or feel motivated to do five things at once. The reality around you must be accepted as it is, and time you would spend in struggles for constructive work may be best used for rest and joyous activities that your inner child strives for all the time anyway. Use any given moment to relax and give yourself permission to smile, do something creative, and bring color into your daily surroundings.
The Greatest Rewards
Time goes by and teaches bigger lessons than visible at first. By the end of the year your mission could become clear and your desires on their way to be manifested. What seemed to be “too much” at first will become the only option you wish to pursue. Stay adventurous and see how the structure you already have may serve choices that are out of the box, seemingly unrealistic, and apart from everything that your surroundings would approve of. You are well on your way to become a better you – for you.
Physiology and Body
While you are summoned to travel great distances and expand horizons every step of the way, all the things you learn may be too much for your stomach to metabolize and for your body to handle. You need your foundation strong and to remain centered, especially at the end of spring when your immunity will already be low and the body in need of rest, sun, and unwinding of all sorts. Relax that belly any time you remember to, dance around the house to stay active, and do something good for your intestines by choosing healthy food in small portions throughout the day.
Love and Family
Ego battles will color the first months of this year. Try not to take things personally as no expectation fits your mind better than what reality is obviously offering. It is important to not abuse your own speed to jump to conclusions, especially with good friends and people you can openly talk to. Matters of family could be put aside for a while with your personal world worked on and your emotions held as solely yours. Try not to exclude and cut off people from your life without trying to set clear boundaries with them first. When the time comes to clarify your personal beliefs, everyone else\'s will inevitably be shaken off from your shoulders, along with unrealistic expectations that no one is bound to meet.
Single Gemini could meet someone new or fall in love with a good friend, someone distant or someone out of reach. It is important to find inspiration and sink into emotions that arise with an open heart to get the most of them and enjoy them for however long they might last. Serious changes to your relationship status or love stories can be expected in October when emotions will finally start making a lot more sense as your mind slows down to get in tune with them. Choose to be with a good friend over an unimportant fling and try not to get carried away into contacts that your heart is not involved in entirely.
Work and Finances
While work will have its ups and downs, finances are not off to a great start and some payments may get lost or misplaced. Your sense of worth could be shaken by outside events and the way other people perceive your commitment. It is important to stand firm in your position and see the good that you are bringing into any team or workplace that you belong to. If you are not recognized for quality, you might as well move on to something entirely different. Address your successes and be confident about the future that you are about to create instead of holding on to irrelevant situations that put you to shame in any way.
