By using the pseudo-Hermitian connection (or Tanaka–Webster connection) , we construct the parametric equations of Legendre pseudo-Hermitian circles (whose -geodesic curvature is constant and -geodesic torsion is zero) in S3. In fact, it is realized as a Legendre curve satisfying the -Jacobi equation for the -geodesic vector field along it.
