The Twins and The Moonchild
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Gemini and Cancer.
Gemini - Cancer
Gemini is Air and Mutable. Cancer is Water and Cardinal. In common, they have a wonderful gift of gabbiness as they course through levels of feeling and talking. Cancer follows the moods of the Moon and enjoys the modulation from quarter moon to full moon. Gemini flits. They flit so well that their listeners are forced to follow them with their ears and eyes. Cancer's actions are thoughtful and conscious and based in the slow approach rooted in hearth and home. Gemini colors its verbal world with many hues and makes friends fast, home being where they are hanging their hat.
The Cancer is not a timid, but a nondisclosing partner. Keeping their many feelings close to the vest, they are a contrast to Gemini, who shares. Sometimes they are just sharing to make others think they are sharing. Gemini tends not to be grasping and possessive. Cancer will grab every little pebble on the beach and cling to them for their significance. Cancer and Gemini go together well when it comes to double teaming. They make a very powerful pair, Cancer hitting at the emotional level, running things. And Gemini leading openly with speech and tantalizing the mind.
Even though they are quite different: Air and change versus water and action, they could dance together well, featuring their strong suits. Positively speaking, these two could combine Cancerian sentimentality and idealization with Gemini’s free form lack of possessiveness. Their strings could play harmonically with one another, if they were in sync.
Cancer could slip into a depressive mood state quite easily, as it is their tendency, if there were romantic problems. An insensitive Gemini can pour on sarcasm and coldness and end up through a loss of control hurting its own interests. If Cancer were treated lovingly and sensitively, it would not fall into self protection. The biggest lesson romantically could be tending to feelings.
Gemini can pull out a verbal saber and cut deftly. They do not like fighting though. Their tongues just make them sound like they are very good fighters. Cancers have tempers and if the domestic is involved, they can be knights on horses. The way for these two to fight, so that the fight can end quickly, is not to corner Gemini and not to threaten Cancerian security.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" One way to make sure that Cancer does not grow bored is to keep it moving. This is a cardinal sign. Just the perception of boredom can frustrate the Cancer. Gemini is ethereal movement. Mental movement, if not physical. Boredom is anathema to the Gemini. It would seem that these two could stay at their own level of “busyness” for the entirety of their relationship.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
Gemini is almost a helpless flirt. That is an overstatement because the way they communicate seems flirtatious. Charm in general can sometimes look like overt moves, when it is not. Gemini, if healthy, can always bring its charm and electrical energy and enliven relationships of older age. Cancer with its sweeping sentimentality will always want their personal lives to be vibrant and romantic. Since they tend to idealize, they will probably have high personal goals in this regard.
Seven Year Itchiness:
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns, as time goes on. Others are not. The right spark could make a Gemini fly to infidelity. 7 years could be a sign post, if they were in misery, or felt misunderstood. Cancer is more likely to think about it and imagine it. True to its love of the home, it might not stray, even if unhappy.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 65% Positive Long Term - 60% Short Term. This has a better chance the older the relationship gets. Cancer could view the Gemini as a fling in the beginning, and then they might grow on each other, Cancer building the home where its clever Gemini could thrive and feel the freedom that lies in happiness.
