Zodiac signs on Stamps..


Date of Issue : 20 May 20211

In the months of April, May and June, Canada Post is launching three more Signs of the Zodiac stamp issues, each one on the day in which each particular constellation takes its place of prominence in the zodiac calendar. On 20th May a Stamp on Gemini sign will be released.

Signs of the Zodiac: Gemini, the twins
Named for the stars Castor and Polydeuces (also known as Pollux--and the two stars together are known as the Dioscuri), Gemini means twins in Latin. The third astrological sign in the Zodiac, Gemini is considered an air sign, and is closely associated with the planet Mercury. The sun is in Gemini from approximately May 21 to June 20. However, some astrologists claim that the end of the constellation's rule is at the very moment the Solstice begins on June 21.
