The element of Air with Fire
This can be a relationship with lots of laughter, fun and big ideas. It’s great for a couple involved in politics or education, but when it comes to running the house– will you both ever get anything done? Fire can teach Air to think big and to be more enthusiastic, while Air can encourage Fire to stop and think before embarking on a course of action.
Aries and Gemini are both witty, with a desire for variety and excitement. Gemini is attracted to the enthusiastic Aries, who in turn appreciates the fact that life can never be boring around a Gemini. Both like to flirt and are flighty, which is fine as long as they both agree that it is just lighthearted fun. Sometimes Aries could become a little impatient with Gemini’s endless talking and Gemini could dislike the tactless nature of Aries. On the whole these two are likely to find that their love of change and variety will keep them from ever getting tired of the other’s company.
When effervescent Gemini teams up with radiant Leo, the two can really sparkle together. There is something childlike, fun-loving and playful about both signs. Gemini is more intellectual, while Leo tends to have better intuitive ability. Both like being on the social scene; Gemini for the variety and interesting conversations it provides, and Leo, for being the centre of attention. A word of caution for Gemini is to watch out for the sensitive ego of Leo, a mischievous prank can go just a bit too far and then the Lion’s famous temper is likely to be unleashed. Leo, on the other hand, must not be too controlling of Gemini, as this would dampen their natural spirit of curiosity and adventure. On the whole this is a warm, friendly and compatible pairing.
Both signs are mentally oriented but also playful, since exchanging ideas for them is fun. They are the Peter Pan pair and often refuse to grow up. They simply love games, parties and socialising, so commitment and responsibility doesn’t come easily to either of them. Sagittarius is attracted to Gemini’s speed and ability to collect heaps of information and facts, and Gemini is fascinated by Sagittarius’ big ideas. Geminis tend to be curious – they want to know about everything but can miss the bigger picture, so Sagittarians can show them how to seek overall understanding. On the down side, Sagittarius may accuse Gemini of being superficial and fickle, and Gemini may occasionally get fed up with Sagittarius’ constant preaching and ‘know it all’ attitude. However, they respect each other’s need for change and unrestrained movement, and this can contribute to the longevity of a relationship between this pair.
The element of Air with Earth
While Earth may consider that Air is too heady and impractical and Air can view Earth as materialistic and unprincipled, this cool, dry combination does have its upside. Neither of you gets angry or ruffled without good reason and there is the potential for much humour and light-hearted banter between you. If you put your heads together, you can come up with lots of practical ideas, both for having fun and for making the world a better place.
In many ways the energies of the two signs are completely contrasting; Taurus likes to take things slow and steady, while Gemini wants variety and change. Gemini loves to chat incessantly, rapidly jumping from one topic to the next, whereas Taurus would prefer to digest one topic at a time. The most precious thing to Taurus is home and security, while for Gemini it is exploration, both of the physical world and the world of imagination. However, relationships are often about being attracted to a quality in the other that is lacking in oneself and Gemini and Taurus can make it work if both learn to understand the other. Besides, it is traditionally a good combination for making money together!
Both these signs share a love of intellectual pursuits and can adapt to change easily. Neither is overly emotional so there are unlikely to be major flare-ups, as they are more likely to talk it over – the favourite pastime of Mercury! Virgo’s practical and discriminatory approach is beneficial to Gemini by helping them bring to reality their fantastic flights of fantasy. Virgo is also inspired by the wit and intellectual stimulation that Gemini provides.
This is a match of contrasting personalities; Geminis love the thrill of variety and find it hard to focus on one thing for long, while Capricorn likes to follow a more carefully planned out path. Geminis are generally not too emotional, whereas Capricorns can have deep feelings and if they bear a grudge, it can carry over a long period of time. On the plus side, each sign supplies what the other lacks – Capricorn providing security and ambition, while Gemini being full of inventive ideas and adventure. The serious Capricorn can’t help being captivated by child-like Gemini, while Gemini feels safe in the company of responsible Capricorn.
Same element signs
Normally each sign gets along easily with the other signs in the same element. So Gemini will have a great deal in common with Libra and Aquarius. However, ease is not necessarily a good thing. One of the secrets of a successful relationship is to have enough in common, but enough that is different.
The element of Air with Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Two-way communication is essential for the rational, cool and civilized Air type. This means that the relationship itself is of prime importance, because there is a need to have someone to communicate with. You both are probably great at communicating – not necessarily deep, soul-searching conversation, but good everyday, easy exchanges. Yours is likely to be a civilised relationship, with few arguments and many mutual interests and friends. However, don’t overdo the avoiding of difficult issues – it’s not comfortable having one’s head in a paper bag. A good argument can clear the air and create greater intimacy.
This has got to be the most talkative combination of all – a double dose of the twins means that there is constant chatter on just about everything under the sun! You will enjoy each other’s company, and there will be a great deal of intellectual playfulness and love of variety. The down side of all this gossipy, adventurous and child-like fun is that neither is good at sticking to anything for long or at handling practical matters. You both also tend to live more in the head rather than the heart, which means that on the emotional level there may be something lacking. However, providing that one of you learns how to be a bit more mature, there’s no doubt that you’ll have great times together.
These two have a great deal in common. Gemini loves to communicate and Libra hates to be alone. Both being Air signs, they have excellent mental rapport and will appreciate each other’s intelligence and thoughts. Gemini finds Libra charming and Libra is amused by Gemini’s ready wit. Librans are inspired by Geminis’ creativity, while teaching them a great deal about sharing and giving. There could be some difficulty in coming to a decision as both are aware of the numerous possibilities, but at least they will enjoy the process of talking about it!
|Planet||Mercury||Saturn and Uranus|
These two like exploring new ideas, places and people, so will have a great deal in common. Aquarians love their independence, both intellectual and physical and Geminis are not possessive in relationships. Gemini finds Aquarius’ unpredictability rather exciting and is willing to go along with their unusual ideas. Both signs are restless but could burn up the excess energy by taking a trip together, as they both love traveling and discovering new places. This bright and breezy pairing could end up becoming the best of friends as well.
The element of Air with Water
Air may view Water as illogical and irrational and Water may see Air as overly cool and rational. Air likes everything to be discussed while Water tends to think that some things are so obvious they don’t need explaining. What the two of you have in common is an interest in people and in what makes them tick; examining your motives and those of others may be what keeps you two awake at night.
This Air and Water combination is full of contrasts. While Gemini operates mainly on the intellectual level, Cancer’s medium is emotions and sentiments. Gemini finds it hard to understand Cancer’s moodiness, while Gemini’s love of variety makes Cancer feel insecure. Yet, despite these marked differences there is an attraction between the two, as each supplies what the other craves for. Cancer helps Gemini to comprehend the subtle and unspoken language of emotions, while Gemini teaches Cancer how to verbalise their deepest feelings.
|Planet||Mercury||Mars and Pluto|
These two signs have contrasting energies: Scorpio’s passion is quite different from Gemini’s airy intellectualism. Scorpio is possessive while Gemini wants the freedom of trying new things. This may lead the watery sign to view Gemini as being superficial and perhaps childish, while Gemini might find Scorpio a bit too intense. However, there are positives: Scorpio can teach restless Gemini how to complete what they start and to delve into the bewildering world of emotions. Gemini, on the other hand, can show Scorpio how to lighten up and have a laugh.
|Planet||Mercury||Jupiter and Neptune|
Pisceans are dreamy, imaginative, sensitive, living in a world of intangibles, while Geminis are more at home in the world of intellectual ideas and thoughts. While Pisces relies on intuition, Gemini uses a more cerebral and rational approach to deal with matters. However, both have a respect for the ideas of others and both being Mutable signs, they are adaptable and open to change. These two quite different signs are able get along with each other, even without completely understanding the other.
