Giveaway information at bottom of post!
Okay, I have to be honest for a minute here. I didn’t actually know what the Zodiac system even is until I started this giveaway series with Demeter Fragrance Library! I mean, everyone knows that when you open your favorite magazine you’re going to get a prediction for your future based on when you were born, but where does this tradition come from?
Turns out that the twelve “signs,” as we call them, each represent a 30 degrees division of the the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year (also called the Ecliptic). This is essentially a rather sophisticated yet early mapping system for the visible stars in the sky, which came to be called the “circle of animals” in Greek. This is where we get our images of the beasts in the night sky. Bet you didn’t know that, either!
This month’s sign is Gemini, represented by the twins Castor and Pollux. Their friendship was so strong that when the mortal Castor died his immortal brother asked his father Zeus to share his immortality. Zeus granted him his wish, and they became a constellation that represents everyone born from May 21st to June 21st. As Demeter Fragrance Library writes:
Things are never boring when a Gemini is on the scene. In one word, versatility describes this dual sign. Expressive and quick-witted, the Gemini presents two distinctive sides to his or her personality. One twin can be outgoing and flirtatious while the other is contemplative and serious. Although you can never be sure which half you will face, both twins are able to adapt to life’s circumstances well, making them wonderful people to know.
In this flash giveaway, open for only FIVE DAYS for my most loyal readers (Gemini or not!), I’ll be giving you a chance to win your very own Gemini Moonbeam unisex perfume ($20*)! This is one of my favorites from the range; described as a “foody floral,” Moonbeam mixes notes of vanilla and chocolate with green leaves, jasmine, Lily of the valley, amber and precious woods. It smells like a really toned down Angel, so delicious and sweet!
