associated Greek myth: 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. Castor and Pollux were also mythologically associated with St. Elmo’s fire in their role as the protectors of sailors.
