Love, Commitment and the Twins
If you’re at a party and spot a laughing crowd, or several people in animated conversation, you can be sure that there’s a Gemini at the center of it. If you’re looking for a playmate to distract you and lift your spirits, or a lover who adds ingenuity, charm and variety to every occasion, you can’t go wrong with bright, funny, busy Gemini.
Geminis can also be incredibly intriguing and alluring—look at Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Natalie Portman, House’s cranky Hugh Laurie and iconic Marilyn Monroe.
If you want to make your Gemini happy, pamper them endlessly and shamelessly, keep the romantic and sexual surprises coming, be prepared to stay up all night talking or exploring astonishing sexual diversity, and be ready to experience a variety of stories and seductions worthy of the Arabian Nights’ Scheherazade. The thought of being all things to a person who wants it all (right now!) might be daunting, but if Gemini really lights your fire, it’s worth the effort.
Underneath the beauty, charm and excitement which animate Gemini women and men is an elusive and deeply compelling essence which is pretty irresistible, especially if you’re at all empathic. This essence is a bone-deep longing for their sacred twin, their other half, the one person in the universe who fulfills and completes them.
It is this longing, and Gemini’s insatiable drive to fulfill it, which has given them their bad rap for fickleness and infidelity. But Geminis aren’t heartless seducers. While they draw you in by exercising that fatally attractive Gemini allure, they’re hoping against hope that you’ll be the One, that you’ll fill their empty spaces, and help them finally feel whole. And if you turn out not to be the One? Well…
Deeply emotional people, especially the Water and Earth signs who are often attracted to Gemini’s longing, should keep in mind that Gemini is an air sign, and its focus is mental. Without strong Water or Earth in their chart, they’re not looking for the kind of emotional bonding which you desire. They are searching for their twin, someone who wants the same stimulation, excitement and variety which they find essential to their happiness.
When you read these thumbnails, keep in mind that there’s more to astrology than Sun signs, and that Moon, Ascendant, Mercury, Venus and Mars in compatible or incompatible signs can make a huge difference in how, and whether, your relationship will work.
When in doubt, consult an astrologer. And remember, love usually finds a way.
Aries – Life can be an endless adventure for you two, both as friends and as enthusiastically energetic lovers. Don’t let bickering become a habit.
Taurus – Your neighboring signs could create initial attraction, but your style and needs are so different that this is usually a difficult combination in the long run.
Gemini – You’d think, because you quest for a soul mate, that another Gemini would be ideal, but your mutually built-in changeability often means this is fun but short-lived.
Cancer – Cancer recognizes Gemini’s soul mate dream, but Cancer’s is very different. Gemini’s flirtations trigger Cancer’s insecurities, Cancer comforts stifle Gemini.
Leo – Who knew sheer fun could be so seductive? Even though Leo expects a lot, and easily steals the spotlight sometimes, this is one of the best matches for Gemini.
Virgo – Intellectual and sexual sparks fly, but for many reasons you can really irritate each other over the long haul. In the end Virgo wants predictability; Gemini, freedom.
Libra – A really terrific match! You’re the couple everyone wants at their party, you have endless fun together, and neither is very possessive. Extravagance is your only pitfall.
Scorpio – Scorpio sees Gemini’s longing, but has the wrong answers. The experience will be clarifying for both of you, but a lot of work. An important interlude for both.
Sagittarius – These opposites definitely attract, but there’s work to overcome very different styles. You can feed each other’s weaknesses, or find strength in differences.
Capricorn – This could be a wonderful affair, a real eye-opener for Capricorn, but your long-term needs and goals couldn’t be more dissimilar. Enjoy the moment; then let go.
Aquarius – Aquarius is smart enough, and unconventional enough, to keep Gemini fascinated for a lifetime. Potent chemistry, too. This could be The One – for both.
Pisces – You both pursue the Beautiful Dream, but your dreams are profoundly different, as are your styles of connecting. Best as an unforgettable romance.
