Gemini Dates of Birth
Is Your Zodiac Sign Really Gemini?
Ephemeris, table of planetary positions, from the Renaissance.
The leap years make the dates of each Zodiac sign change slightly. Normally, Gemini starts on May 21 and ends on June 20, but that's just the mean. In reality it changes slightly in a four year period from one leap year to the next.
Here are the leap years of the last century:
If you were born on the 21st of May or the 21st of June, you have to check if you're really a Gemini or not. It never differs more than a day in each direction. The start of Gemini must be within the 20th to 21st of May, and the end of it is mostly on the 21st of June. People born on other dates need not be concerned.
Zodiac Sign CalculatorIf you're unsure of your Zodiac sign, or if you want to know on what degree (between 0° and 30°) of the sign the sun was at your birth, please visit the Zodiac sign calculator. It's very easy to use, and then you'll know for sure. Here it is:
Cusp or notIf you were born on May 20th or 21st, your sun may be on the very cusp (the starting point) of Gemini, or right by the end of Taurus. If you were born on the 21st of June, your sun might be at the very end of Gemini or at the cusp of Cancer. You need to check the Zodiac sign calculator (see the link above) or your exact horoscope, because on those dates it depends on what time of day you were born - and in what place.
It's particularly important with this check If you were born far away from Greenwich, England, since that's the base for the dates given for Gemini.
You can get your exact complete horoscope computed for free on several websites. Go here to find instructions and links to them: Your own complete horoscope.
If your sun is at the very end of Gemini, you may show personality traits of both Gemini and Cancer, but If you were born at the very start of Cancer, no matter how early in it, you're most definitely a Cancer.
That's because each sign is the most powerful at its beginning, its cusp.
DecansThe strongest is not equal to the most typical, though. A Zodiac sign is its most typical at the part of it (decan) corresponding to its quality: cardinal, fixed or mutable. Each Zodiac sign is one of the four elements fire, earth, air, and water. It's also one of the three qualities. So, four elements and three qualities make twelve possible combinations.
Gemini is the mutable air sign. That means its most typical part is the last one - the ten degrees making its third decan, 20°-30° Gemini. That corresponds approximately to the dates June 11-21. If your birth date is within this range, you're likely to be a very typical Gemini.
If you were born on late May, the 21st to 31st, you're still a Gemini, but with character traits comparable to those of Libra (the cardinal air sign). If you were born on June 1st to 10th, you have some tendencies similar to those of Aquarius (the fixed air sign).
But the most important thing to decide is what sign you are. So, If you were born on May 20th-21st or June 21st, please check with the Zodiac sign calculator (see the link above) or get your complete horoscope to be sure of your star sign.
