Twin Studies: Real Life Geminis

TGIF, for real. Another reason to excite? Over the coming weekend, we enter the cycle of Gemini (May 21 through June 20, to be exact). Ruling over communication and the exchange of creative energy, the third sign in the zodiac calendar is represented by dual pillars: the twins.

To celebrate the season, we’ve found actual pairs of twins on Instagram hailing from around the globe. They may not all be born under their namesake constellation, but each pairing represents two sides of the same coin—or split cell. Using their unique bonds, they work together to bring shared experience to their feed footage, and it’s fascinating.

Take a look at these rising dual stars and how they gram. Remember, sharing is caring.
