It was used to predict weather patterns for agricultural purposes, seasons, forecasts of natural disasters, war, celestial events and other events in the course of human affairs (“History”). Today in American culture however, these signs are used to inform people about their daily horoscope, lucky numbers, who their right mate is, people they will or won’t get along with, erogenous zones, characteristics’, weak points on the body, even cities and plants that somehow relate to that specified sign.

Astronomically the actual stars of Gemini are coincidentally named Castor and Pollux. Apparently it is rare for mythology and astronomy to agree. Gemini significantly shows a well measure of yin and…

Delta Capricorni is the brightest star in this constellation and it is the second most faintest constellation in the sky making it very difficult…
