Who doesn't love you, Gemini? You are versatile, witty, charming, and dazzle like a perfectly faceted jewel – and multifaceted you are! Your keen eye for fashion feeds your amazing taste and you always look impeccable. Your general knowledge about nearly everything is rounded enough to contribute to any conversation intelligently. However, as you are an air sign, you like it best when communication moves swiftly, or you will likely get bored.
Because of your widely varying interests and your ability to carry many conversations at one time, you cannot help but radiate attractiveness and generate interest. The mere process of integrating all the new information can be a "heady" experience, making nearly everyone seem attractive to you too! This is wonderful – if you are not looking for long-term commitment.
True to the Twin archetype of your sign, there is another side to you that people don't often see. You would prefer to not be single. You are at your best when you are in a dynamic, yet stable relationship. A relationship that is caring and tender, and even romantic – but never boring. The ideal relationship will give you plenty of freedom to socialize, explore and exchange ideas, and be yourself; while at the same time being a reliable and tested foundation of strength for you. Your partner must be intelligent, interesting, social, and like to talk – and yet be there for you unconditionally at the spontaneous, unplanned moment of need, when you feel the need to withdraw and be nurtured.
Does this sound too demanding, or even contradictory? Of course! Understand, Gemini, that although your needs are widely varied and paradoxical, even dark and shadowy at times – you are the type that really does need all this variety.
Typically, Geminis, also known as the Twins, find relationships that fulfill only some of their needs, or just the needs that to them mentally "make sense" in our society. They think it is impossible for any one person to meet all their needs, and at times feel as though they are two people residing in the same body. Unfortunately, these relationships tend not to last, because Geminis eventually feel the gaping hole where the put-aside needs (acknowledged or not) are not being fulfilled. Some Geminis may go as far as filling that hole with another person who will meet those unmet, unexpressed needs – even if they didn't plan it. Often, the result is two bad relationships, not one good one.
When Geminis instead become aware of all their needs (no matter how different they seem) and realize they do not have to compromise and will wait patiently to find the one person who actually fulfills all their needs, everything works great! The trick is finding commonality in all the differences.
Which zodiac signs are usually most compatible for Gemini? From which sun signs should Gemini generally steer clear? Consulting a psychic or astrologer is of course best, because there are more markers for long-term relationship compatibility than just sun signs. Consider the following a starting place for finding love:
Aries March 21 – April 19
The Ram can actually be a good match for the Twins, since both can be impulsive, spontaneous and have lots of fun! Aries, a fire sign, likes to initiate and loves to be the romantic "knight in shining armor," while Gemini, being mutable and flexible, likes the pursuit. Lastingness would come from also being grounded and practical, more likely coming from Aries.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Unless there are other markers, Taurus is usually not the best choice for Gemini. The focused, steadfast earth sign Bull is usually in Gemini's eyes too simple, rigid, or boring and is not open enough to entertain and discuss new ideas.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Gemini with Gemini: It would be like four people in the room, lots of talking here – be careful you don't put each other in a coma! Seriously, you may find much in common. However, both of you need some grounding energy, and neither usually has it, since both of you contribute spontaneity and lively discussion more than stability.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
As illogical as it seems, Cancer and the Twins can be one of the better matches. The watery Crab can be sensitive to subtle shifts in the environment and changes as much as airy Gemini does and is therefore not boring. Cancer also provides security. If both enjoy art or scholarly pursuits and have similar taste in romance, this could work very well.
Leo July 23 – August 22
The take-charge fiery Leo man is often a great match for Gemini. Both are usually at the height of fashion and take chances, so often this couple is in the limelight and really look amazing together. The Lion, being the more fixed sign, brings the stability Gemini needs, while Gemini brings interesting conversation and ideas to Leo, who likes the attention.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Intellectually, this match can be stimulating at first. Both of you are ruled by Mercury, and while airy Gemini can see the common ground in seemingly unrelated things, the discerning earthy Virgo man notices instead the differences – even in seemingly similar things. When this translates to every day, however, Virgo can seem preachy or nitpicky – not Gemini's style.
Libra September 23 – October 22
This couple also looks really good together. The airy Libra man and Gemini both like beauty, even if Gemini takes some liberty with definitions. Since Libra likes harmony, the Gemini can find wider expression here, while being interesting to Libra. Both have amazing taste and want to do the same things – and both can enjoy talking about it afterward. With markers of stability evident, this is a good pairing.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
The attraction here is magnetic and intense. Both the watery, closely guarded Scorpio man and the airy Twins have attraction to the shadow, but for different reasons. Gemini is merely curious, while the Scorpion feels impelled to explore. Both can explore these territories together, even with different motivations. However, if Scorpio is not willing to open up and communicate with Gemini, and is not willing to extend trust and freedom, Gemini will eventually leave.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
The fiery Sagittarius man is airy Gemini's opposite sign – and opposites do attract. Both are lifelong seekers and love to learn, and teach. Both will love to explore and travel as well, but sometimes Gemini needs to withdraw before opening up again – and the Archer may not understand this need. This pairing could work if Sagittarius allows Gemini some downtime and if markers of stability are present.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Gemini may be initially attracted to the earthy Goat's status and knowledge about career and workplace. Unless markers show differently, a Capricorn man may not be dynamic enough to keep Gemini's interest. The Goat focuses, while Gemini likes variety. If this progresses further, both partners often feel as if they had compromised – with the Gemini feeling wanting or lack and the Capricorn feeling too many demands.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
The Aquarius man could work well with Gemini, as both are social, like witty communication, and need much freedom in their lives to learn. The Water-bearer usually provides the grounding for the relationship. The lasting factor here will be if Gemini is flexible and agrees with futuristic and weird yet unyielding ideas of this air sign.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
While airy Gemini can feel pulled mentally by a crowd, the watery Fish will feel pulled emotionally. There can be much love and understanding between a Gemini woman and a Pisces man, and if both are willing to sail the winds and swim the depths, this can work. If stability markers are present, this could be a romantic pairing. If not, it could be too much to handle.
The information on these pairings is intended to be only a starting point, since there are many planetary comparisons involved. It is important to also know as closely as possible the date when your relationship began. The planetary transits of this date may affect either or both of you and should be free of personal planet retrogrades. Consulting an adept psychic or astrologer can sort out all these comparisons and accurately weigh their importance. Confirmation can be provided for things you already know. This warm, friendly reassurance can go a long way toward making a decision to go forward together and helps greatly to answer the question, "Is he the one?" May you find love – and keep it!
