Gemini Love Match
Ah, the Gemini, witty and eloquent, the life of the party, and a great lover to boot. If you can keep him/her interested for long enough to settle down. Sometimes the Gemini in your life can be a humming-bird, flitting from one interest to the next, and then they can be the serious intellectual, moving from one stimulating idea to the next with the ease of their own air sign. This means that as much they may want to be happy, the Gemini strives to bring discordant notes into harmony, disjunctive ideas into synthesis, and may even try to bring your, as they may perceive, jumbled existence into greater balance. This type of relationship can be fraught with all sorts of perils but can also be a great learning and growing experience.
One of the best parts of learning to love, or simply learning to be around a Gemini is knowing that they are the mimic of the horoscope’s cycle. They can be whatever you want them to be, and may in fact see what you are looking for in a lover and become that. They can be a roaring Leo, or a fiery Aries, a stable Taurus or a pensive Pisces. They can say all the right things and do the romantic dinners or long walks, if that is what you are looking for. This is why they have such great success with the opposite sex, and can attract the attention of even the most unlikely of personalities. It is important to remember that in spite of this great ability to adapt and change to meet the challenge of being your favourite lover, a Gemini is only mimicking and in the end you must love the curious mind, and schizophrenic behaviour that defines his/her life.
One of the Gemini’s biggest challenges and at the same time greatest attributes as a partner is their wish to understand how you tick (I can see Gemini’s partners, friends and lovers all shaking their heads now in complete agreement). This requires lots of questions and investigation into your head and heart, which can satisfy most people deep seeded narcissism, but can also be a little unnerving. This curiosity is inextricably linked to a Gemini’s need to understand all the things around them. This understanding can end up meaning that once they feel as though they have you figured out, their interest may wane.
There are some dark sides to the Gemini character. Much of their weakness lies in shortness of their attention span. The love of new and shifting things can sometimes outweigh the importance of settling into a routine and enjoying the more familiar aspects of day-to-day existence. In short Gemini lovers can be heartbreaking. They go full tilt into love and then, when bored, can toss aside people without too much thought, moving on to something new and more exciting. These qualities can hurt those around them, and eventually leave them alone and wondering where all the people in their life have gone. Gemini’s tend to have high divorce rates precisely because of this tendency. Give them a chance and they will one-minute love the girl next door, and in the next moment run after the dominatrix with her whips and chains.
Give your Gemini lover a chance and they will keep you on your toes, but make sure that you stay true to your own nature and don’t bend too much or ask too little, or you may find yourself and the blinding will of their capricious nature.
Best Match for Gemini
As a star sign Gemini, ruled by the element of Air, your safest bet is probably one of the other two Air signs, i.e. LIBRA or AQUARIUS. The favorable 120° – or 4 signs – spacing between Zodiac signs in the same element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm. Both Libra and Aquarius are good compatibility matches for Gemini since they share Gemini’s thinking, objective and people-oriented approach to life. However, Aquarius probably just beats Libra as the better compatibility choice for Gemini. Because Aquarians value their own freedom so highly, they find it relatively easier to handle Gemini’s restless, non-committal love style.
Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with logical Gemini, while also helping to galvanize it into action, are the passionate Fire signs ARIES and LEO, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Gemini. Many believe this kind of Fire-Air combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac signs apart.
What About Another Gemini? So what about another GEMINI as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Gemini of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Gemini qualities – like their intelligence, wit and incredible versatility. But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Gemini people – most likely their superficiality and inconsistency – that you’ll positively hate! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!
Worst Match for Gemini
The truth is, Gemini, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their star sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own. For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the star sign of PISCES. Because Pisces is at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 sign spacing) from Gemini, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are these people will be too incompatible with you – and just too much hard work!
Of all the star signs, Pisces probably qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Gemini. Due to their extreme sensitivity and deep need for personal intimacy, Pisceans may find it harder than just about anyone else to cope with Gemini’s coolly unemotional – and at times rather cruelly over-logical – outlook.
There may also be lesser compatibility challenges with the signs spaced at 150° (or 5 signs) from Gemini, i.e. SCORPIO and CAPRICORN. Although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving signs in conflicting elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad, however, as they might appear. Okay, these combinations may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!
