Stars in Gemini
Propus (Heb) – the branch (bough) spreading out
Mebsuts (Heb) – treading under foot
Wasat (Arabic) – set, appointed
Al Giazâ – the palm branch

Hercules is shown bearing a branch and many other motifs contained in these Star signs keep surfacing.
In some ancient signs systems Gemini is depicted as two kid goats or two dogs (Canis Major and Canis Minor)
What astounds me in all of these signs is the consistency across the languages.
The intricacy of the details match in multiple ways, so much so that it leaves me breathless.
Did those of you who have been following the Bible Gemz notice something which connects between the Gemz and the Nuggets? Did you notice the names of the two stars above, Castor and Pollux. Does it ring a bell for you? The name of the ship which took Paul from Malta to Puteoli was called Castor and Pollux The Twins (Acts 28:11) Oaths were often taken in the name of The Twins because it was thought to add a sense of utmost truth, covering the bases by naming naming the two gods - Gemini, the Twins.

One Christian interpretation is that Gemini includes both the union of Christ and His church but there is also a link to the dual nature of Christians, as in the case of Pisces, the one looking heavenward and the one bound to the earth. The notion in the second being that there will be two types of Christians saved, those whole-heartedly committed to Christ and those who arrive in heaven by the skin of their teeth with the smell of fire upon them.
Rather than do what I have done in the other Mazzaroth signs and give you a range of verses contained the ideas expressed in the stars signs, I will give you one block of text expressed one of the interpretations of Gemini from 1 Corinthians 3:9-15:
For we are God's co-workers. You are God's farmland and God's building.As an expert builder using the grace that God gave me, I laid the foundation, and someone else is building on it. But each person must be careful how he builds on it. After all, no one can lay any other foundation than the one that is already laid, and that is Jesus the Messiah.Whether a person builds on this foundation with gold, silver, expensive stones, wood, hay, or straw,the workmanship of each person will become evident, for the day of judgment will show what it is, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's action.If what a person has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward.If his work is burned up, he will suffer loss. However, he himself will be saved, but it will be like going through fire.
Ultimately whichever of these two interpretations is in focus, all of us who love the Lord and are redeemed by His blood will participate in the Marriage Feast of Lamb in Heaven.
Some of you have asked why I keep calling these star signs Mazzaroth and not the Zodiac? Firstly, because Mazzaroth is the name given in Hebrew for the twelve constellations chosen on elliptical course of the earth around the sun along with their 36 associated decans. Secondly, because of the connotation attached to the Greek term, Zodiac.
We have two star signs left: Cancer and Leo. We will look into the constellation of Cancer next week.
