Gemini Man and Cancer Woman
Gemini man and Cancer woman may have a rough time of it, because the basic needs of these two individuals vary so greatly. Complementary astrological aspects in the natal charts would increase the chances of a successful pairing, but if there aren't any, this isn't the most likely of success stories. I don't want to put a damper on anyone's hopes, as anything's possible, but there will need to be some serious give and take if these two are going to be a good match. For more on the compatibility between the Gemini man and Cancer woman, read on!
Gemini man is charming and friendly, but he's not what you'd call the warm and fuzzy type. And that happens to be the type Cancer woman wants. Cancer woman needs to feel comforted and protected by her man, but while Gemini man will certainly want to make her happy, he doesn't really demonstrate his love in this manner. Cancer woman wants to cuddle on the sofa and Gemini man wants to be out experiencing life to the full. Of course, Gemini man is highly perceptive and he'll know this is what Cancer woman wants, and though he knows he's not really this person, part of him will think he can become this person for her. After all, the Gemini male is so changeable, it's almost as though anything is possible if he puts his mind to it. But try though he may to be this man for her, he'll eventually get bored with such a change and he'll revert to who he really is. That's not to say who he is is bad, or unloving; he's just not the cuddle-on-the-sofa-every-evening type of man.
Cancer woman has a deep-rooted need to please her man. She wants to make him happy at all costs and she will go above and beyond trying to do so. The trouble is, what Gemini man thinks he wants today is unlikely to be what he wants tomorrow. He's just too changeable in that respect and Cancer woman may end up emotionally and physically exhausting herself trying to keep up with who becomes next and what that version of him wants from love. She's intuitive and perceptive as well, and she can see that it's difficult to predict what he wants from his relationships and her, but she'll try all the same. The best scenario here would be if Gemini man had some astrological aspects that made him a bit more grounded and steady -- if he's got these in his birth chart, he may actually warm to the idea of slowing down and enjoying what he has. But if he hasn't, it may be difficult to tether him long enough to enjoy a long-lasting relationship with Cancer woman.
