Love, Zodiac

The Gemini personality isn't going to waste time with someone who bores them or can’t hold their own in a conversation. Communication is everything for them, and if it’s hard for you to get your thoughts out in a smart or entertaining way, you’re not for Gemini. They love change and variety and they need someone who is flexible, open to new experiences, and willing to try almost anything.

Since Gemini is the sign of the Twins, they’re often thought to have two sides of their personality. But that’s not true. If anything, the Gemini zodiac sign has many sides to their personality, and they need a constant stream of stimuli to keep them engaged.

It can be helpful to know the Gemini compatibility for each zodiac sign. A horoscope can encourage us to go after the relationship we desire, but only astrology can reveal the best match through zodiac compatibility.

One of the best characteristics of the Gemini personality is their ability to get along with almost everyone, especially at a social event. Geminis know how to make others feel comfortable and they’re able to find ways to draw them out.

But if you want to be more than friends with a Gemini, you need know how to really capture (and keep) their attention.

They may be charming and gracious on the outside, but if they’re bored, they’ll move on to somebody else. They are wickedly funny, so they’re going to seek a partner who not only has a great sense of humor, but can make them laugh as well.

So, where do you stand in terms of Gemini compatibility? Is this zodiac sign the perfect one to keep you engrossed and fascinated? Here's how Gemini matches up with other zodiac signs.

Gemini & Aries

Both signs are active and like to have fun. They both enjoy constant stimulation and love to try new things. Aries is much more competitive than Gemini. Both are independent and prefer that their partners not be clingy or too possessive.

Both signs are very passionate, so they match up on a sexual level as well. The only place there could be conflict is Aries' impatience with Gemini; they could become a little abrupt and tactless as a way to prod Gemini into some movement.

Gemini and Aries both have problems with procrastination, so there's a danger with neither of them completing projects that have lost their gleam. If they don't get on each other's nerves, a romantic partnership could last for a while; if not, less might be more, and these two would do better as friends.

Gemini & Taurus

These two signs tend to run at two different speeds and on two (rarely intersecting) tracks. Gemini can admire some of the qualities that Taurus has such as being stable, grounded, and steady, because Gemini doesn't tend to be that strong in those areas.

Geminis are fast and witty, and as much as Taurus enjoys a good laugh, some of Gemini's humor may be over Taurus' head. It's not that Taurus isn't smart — they are, but they tend to take a little longer to thoroughly process, and by then Gemini has moved on.

Geminis struggle with commitment, and keeping promises will definitely annoy Taurus. Plus, Geminis like to talk things out and sometimes Taurus just wants to be by themselves and chill for a little bit.

However, the pair of them would make the best hosts at a party as they're truly at their best with Gemini's social skills and Taurus' gift for making an entrance.

Gemini & Gemini

Two Geminis together is 10x the fun. There will be a lot of laughs to be had with these two, and finally, each will be able to say that they found their conversational equal. As long as things stay easy and light, these two will be a great match.

The problem is that when difficult things come up (as they do in all relationships), there will be no one there to stay and fight for the relationship; they'll both be ready to give up. Working on a relationship isn't fun and it certainly doesn't have any instant gratification, so either one or both of these Geminis will probably prefer to let things go.

If they somehow find their way back to each other, they'd be best friends forever.

Gemini & Cancer

Gemini and Cancer compatibility is best as parent and child. Cancer has a lot of love and nurturing to give, and Gemini is happy to be cared for.

The issue is that if their relationship becomes romantic, there's only so long that Gemini is going to be able to commit to it. Once they get bored, they're going to be gone before Cancer can even start to process the end of the relationship.

Cancers tend to be somewhat clingy and possessive, and that can be trying for a Gemini. Geminis like to be in the here and now, and Cancer has a fondness for reliving and revisiting the past, which could cause some tension in a relationship between the two.

Cancers tend to act from the heart, and Geminis tend to act from the head, so both would need to make a huge effort to see the perspective of the other one.

Gemini & Leo

Gemini and Leo would probably have an almost instant attraction and appreciation for each other. They both come to life around other people, they're both captivating and fun, and both love drama and vibrancy, even when they have to bring it themselves.

However, Leo is more grounded and stable than Gemini. Geminis like a lot of variety and tend to be constantly searching for their life-path, whereas Leo is solid, determined, and knows exactly what path they're headed on.

Leos like praise, and while Gemini has a gift with compliments and nice things to say, they can be quite the verbal tease which could irritate Leo. Also, Gemini's constant balls in the air could make focusing challenging which doesn't go with Leo's laser-like intensity on areas of their life.

There may be some bumps in the road, but ultimately, these two signs should get along quite well.

Gemini & Virgo

How much arguing is foreplay? Because there two signs argue a lot. It's not all negative — a good difference of opinion and a fiery discussion can get the juices flowing, so to speak. Both signs are extremely intelligent and natural communicators.

Gemini can be a little too careless and lazy for Virgo's liking, and Virgo a little judgmental and uptight for Gemini. Gemini may get annoyed with Virgo's refusal to take risks or to be spontaneous and do something just because it's fun.

Both Gemini and Virgo are more rational than emotional and love exploring new ideas.

Gemini & Libra

These two signs get along very well. They love to heart-to-heart conversations, make each other laugh, and they almost always have a good time together. Neither is fantastic at making decisions, so that could cause delays on important matters such as wedding dates. Both have tend to procrastinate, but Libra will feel guilty about not finishing something, while Gemini will push it out of their mind.

Gemini and Libra are both fond of entertaining, socializing, and going out. Geminis have a harder time with commitment and Libra might not be interested in a more open relationship, so that's where there could be some conflict.

But if Libra can keep Gemini intrigued and on their toes, there's no reason why they couldn't have a long-lasting relationship.

Gemini & Scorpio

Besides both of these signs being brilliant, they don't have a lot in common, which could make them very attractive to each other. Geminis are fairly open about who they are, while Scorpio tends to be more mysterious and circumspect. Gemini likes to leave their options open whereas when Scorpio gets attached there's very little that can disengage them.

However, both are very passionate and have incredible sex drives, making the sexual dynamic between the two off the charts. Scorpio can be a little too emotional for Gemini's liking, and Gemini's permissiveness may cause some friction and have an adverse effect on the relationship.

Gemini & Sagittarius

These two signs get along great! They both love to explore, have new adventures, try new things, and have amazing conversations. Neither enjoys feeling tied down or boxed in; they're both free spirits, getting as much out of life as they possibly can. 

Boredom is an enemy to both, so they may find themselves so overscheduled that they barely have time for one another. In addition, if they don't try to sync their schedules, they may find themselves not only physically worlds apart but emotionally too.

However, when these two are together, there's much laughter, discussion on matters of the material and philosophical world, and endless stories of adventure.

Gemini & Capricorn

There are some differences between people that make it exciting, and then there is the kind that causes annoyances, misunderstanding, and sometimes even a little dislike. Unfortunately, Gemini and Capricorn have the second kind of differences, and it's hard for them to have an appreciation of them.

Since Capricorns are very mature, determined, and reliable, they may make Gemini feel like a child or teenager. Geminis can be much more playful and unrestrained than Capricorn. Capricorn may find Gemini irresponsible and foolish.

Capricorn needs to loosen up and let down their guard (come on, Capricorn, we know you have that freak side!), and Gemini needs to grow up a bit for a union between these two to work.

Gemini & Aquarius

When Gemini meets Aquarius, they'll feel as if they finally met their match. At last, someone who is intellectually on the same level as they are, and someone who can discuss the big issues or just talk about pop culture. They are both very accepting of others and are very creative in their own ways.

Emotional outbursts or breakdowns appeal to neither sign as they prefer to deal with things from a more cerebral level. True intimacy will prove to be challenging for both, but if they can get past that awkward feeling of revealing too much of yourself, it will deepen the relationship in unexpected ways. 

Gemini & Pisces

Gemini won't mean to, but it's highly likely that they'll hurt Pisces' feelings. Pisces are extremely sensitive, and sensitivity isn't Gemini's strongest quality. They're both very open-minded, versatile, and creative people, but Pisces has a lot of emotions and that's something Gemini isn't entirely comfortable with.

When a Pisces commits, they're pretty serious about it — maybe too serious where Gemini is concerned. If Pisces keeps it light and fun, there could be a relationship with Gemini, but the moment Pisces starts to become clingy, over-sensitive, and brooding, Gemini is out of there.

Gemini will eventually come back, and Pisces will forgive them, and they can go through the whole thing all over again.
