The Gemini symbol, or glyph, is designed to depict the Twins or the Roman numeral II for duality. This is the Gemini horoscope symbol and the character that represents this zodiac sign.
Each zodiac sign has a special symbol, or glyph, that’s associated with the mythology behind it. For example, Sagittarius is ruled by the mythical Centaur—the Archer—so its glyph resembles an arrow pointed skyward. Gemini is symbolized by the Twins and its glyph represents the Roman numeral II for duality. Almost all of the 12 zodiac signs are depicted by an animal, with the exception of Gemini, Virgo and Libra. The Gemini symbol also has a unique meaning.
What is the Gemini symbol?
The Gemini horoscope symbol is the Twins. The Gemini sign symbol is usually depicted as a very simple graphic meant to resemble the Roman numeral II to represent duality. Gemini dates typically fall from May 21 to June 20. Curiosity, expression, collaboration, synergy and cleverness are the main Gemini traits. Thus, the Gemini symbol of the Twins expresses the communication, inventiveness and ingenuity of this zodiac sign. As an adventurous air sign and a flexible mutable sign, Gemini is the quick-witted sign of the zodiac, the versatile sign that is also known for changing their mind.
