Welcome to the Zodiac SAL. I will be posting on the first Saturday of each month with information about that month's sign and a linky for anyone who wants to join in. The linky will stay open until the end of the month.
Last month we had three people link up with me, please do visit them now if you missed their posts before:
Gemini, the Twins, is an Air sign ruled by Mercury and covers those born between 21st May and 21st June.
The brightest star in Gemini is Pollux, and the second-brightest is Castor. In Greek mythology, Gemini was associated with the myth of Castor and Pollux, the children of Leda. Pollux was the son of Zeus, who seduced Leda, while Castor was the son of Tyndareus, king of Sparta and Leda's husband. When Castor died, because he was mortal, Pollux begged his father Zeus to give Castor immortality, and he did, by uniting them together in the heavens.
