Your Relationship Style: Gemini

Posted on May 22, 2018

Gemini, you are the energetic, communicative, and freedom-loving 3rd sign of the zodiac, always up for a good chat and ever inspired to learn as much as you can about the world around you. Your sign is represented by the twins, which symbolizes your unique dual-nature.

Being dual-natured doesn’t mean you have multiple personalities, it means you are complex and mutable, just like your sign suggests. You can be conflicted in the two dominant themes of your personality - one that needs constant stimulation, the other that needs quiet time to absorb and gather more intel for your next project or target subject.

You are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, who is known in Roman mythology as the messenger of the gods, swift of foot and able to carry information where it was needed. This speaks to Gemini’s adaptability, quickly bouncing from one topic to another without compunction, and the way you can jump into or out of any conversation with ease. You’re also the tech-savvy sign and are likely the first in your crowd to adopt to a new gadget or app. Your interest in technology can relate to using or even fixing devices, not being afraid to figure out how something can work to your advantage.

Gemini, what is your relationship style? When it comes to love, what could be holding you back? What has the capacity to help you achieve your greatest desires? We all have strengths and weaknesses, and they can both be used to our best advantage once we better understand them.

Let′s look at some of the pros and cons for Gemini when it comes to relationships and what inhibit you or set you apart in love and life. We′ll also check out your most and least likely compatibility with other signs.

Gemini Pros

  • You have an innate ability to find the fun in any situation
  • Your communication skills are unmatched
  • You have a commitment to lifelong learning, which means you always have something to talk about
  • You have no problem making friends and attracting romantic interests

Gemini Cons

  • You can be impulsive, especially with money
  • Your need for individual freedom may inhibit your ability to commit
  • You are easily distracted
  • You can be flaky and prone to gossip

When it comes to relationships, what stirs your heart? Enemy Number One for Gemini is boredom, so you need a partner who can match your energy and lust for discovery, but also one who’s confident enough in themselves to give you the freedom and independence to do your own thing, which you desperately need to feel true to yourself.

Your infectious personality gives you ample opportunity to meet and make new connections whenever you choose, but you lose interest quickly, which can seem callous and flaky when you are trying to make a romantic approach. Being very transparent about expectations up front can really help you not let people down if they want a commitment sooner than you do.

It’s said that Geminis don’t want to settle down, but you do have a side that is looking to find your other half. It’s not that you can’t commit, it’s that you need to be sure they won’t try to harness you into a predictable routine. If they share your desire to keep improving yourself, you’ll have a fulfilling relationship in front of you.

Most Compatible - Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius

Fellow air signs Libra and Aquarius match your desire for freedom - for Libra, it’s about freedom of beliefs and to be able to fairly express your own opinion. For Aquarius, it’s about freedom of thought and to be able to explore your ideas and dreams. For both, there will be few limits on those fronts, and both can allow you to feel secure in your love, but independent at the same time.

Fire signs Aries and Leo share your disdain for down time and being bored, as they are also looking to be social, have fun, and maintain a powerful lust for life. To make a flame burn brightly, you need both fire and air, so this combination should provide the spark you need to stay positive and happy.

Adventurous and active fire signs may also share your passion for traveling, and will love to take on challenges and draw inspiration from visiting different countries with you. Their dynamic nature should also keep your sex life interesting. Both Aries and Leo are keen and confident performers, and won’t be deterred by any racy ideas you bring to the bedroom!

Least Compatible - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Capricorn

It shouldn’t be a surprise that free-spirit air signs struggle with unpredictable, emotional water signs and steadfast, practical earth signs. Appropriately, your least compatible zodiac signs lie in those areas - pragmatic earth sign Capricorn, sensitive water signs Cancer and Pisces, and intense, watery Scorpio.

Cancer and Pisces are both quite loving and keen on making a long term match, but they can be very co-dependent, relying on their partner to give them confidence and make decisions for them. You are pretty easy going, but over time, this could become a burden for you, as you want to be inspired by your partner, not tied down.

Scorpio can be very jealous, as they look for trust more than any other quality. You may be drawn to their mystery and sexual nature at first, but the first time they punish you for being flirtatious, you’ll see their dark side and be confused about why they take things so personally. You might feel resentful that they are watching your every move.

Capricorns are great with money, which can be helpful in respect to your finances, but they might become judgmental about your spending habits, which will annoy you. They are also not the most social creatures, preferring to keep the company of a small, intimate circle, and you may get tired of their requests to stay in.

Overall, Geminis are happiest when left to their own devices. When looking to find your love match, you should find luck with people who believe they are as awesome as you believe yourself to be. You will likely be drawn to vivacious people who laugh a lot and who can spin a wild story.

It’s not unusual for you to have lots of options in the romance department, but it’s going to come down to who you are inspired by. Communication is your best ally, so avoid people who seem withdrawn and unable to get their point across, and instead seek out those who prefer being entertained in a more extroverted way.


Just because you don′t seem to align with someone on paper doesn′t mean it won′t work out. There are many other factors to consider, including the rest of someone’s primal triad - their moon and rising sign. Having a birth chart done for both of you could definitely provide more insight into your compatibility!

The 7th house rules partnerships and will tell you how you communicate and feel about being in a relationship. For example, if you have Scorpio in your 7th house, you′ll need a partner who will appreciate brutal honesty, an intense sex life, and who will understand a wide, swinging range of emotional reactions.
