Gemini

Myth: Castor and Pollux are two twin brothers. There mother was Leda and they both have different fathers. Pollux, being immortal, and the son of a god is known for his strength and Castor, mortal and son of a mortal is known for his skills with horses. The twins both voyaged to find golden fleece and both also fought in the Trojan War to return their sister to her husband. The twins are equipped with spears and matching horses. The reason they go up into the heavens is because of the death of Castor causes sorrow to Pollux, so Pollux begs Jupiter (Husband of Leda) to send him up to the heavens to be with his brother, Castor. Jupiter lets them be side by side in the heavens because he notices the heroism between the brothers.
