Gemini and Cancer Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
Gemini and cancer are both very dominant signs in their own way and have their own preconceived notions about life and what to do in general. They are both very different and just as similar to each other. The cosiness of the home and a feeling of closeness is what appeals; on the other hand Gemini seems a mite fickle about commitment. When Gemini starts flirting indiscriminately, Cancer shows definite signs of resentment. What Cancer needs to learn and accept is that Geminis do take off every now and then without a backward glance; however, they are just as likely to return, without even a recollection of what the fuss was all about. In turn Gemini has to accept that Cancer can be moody and emotional and to show a little tenderness when that happens. If both these signs compromise a little, there will be an abundance of healthy good will.
Gemini and Cancer are Air and Water signs respectively. If their team work is successful, it is a wonderful combination of the intellect and emotions. The main problem lies in the art of working together. Their points of view are at such polar opposite directions that having anything in common seems a mere pipe dream. The spontaneous enthusiasm of Gemini can sometimes have cold water thrown by the excessively emotional Cancer; similarly the fast moving Gemini – flitting from one point to the other can leave Cancer feeling a little frayed at the edges. However, a balance is always possible if both learn to be more open with each other.
To get a Gemini to stick to one point is all but impossible. There is no question about their extremely high level of intelligence, but Gemini feels that it is better to try and do a little of everything, because attaining perfection could mean working at the same thing for long periods at a stretch. There is a marked tendency to move from one idea or project to the other till something newer catches their eye. This tendency to constantly be on the move makes them something of a rolling stone that gathers no moss – whether it be business, profession or whatever category. One of the reasons behind this hyper activity is fear of missing out on something new and exciting. They are childish in this attitude of either easily letting go or clinging on tenaciously.
Gemini is prone to think, while Cancer rules over the home and hearth. It must be mentioned that Gemini can become the perfect protector and knight in shining arms for Cancer. The reciprocation comes in the form of being fiercely protective about the ones they love. A healthy, happy and comfortable home life is all important to a Cancer. Gemini is likely to savour all the creature comforts like a comfortable home, tasty meals and everything that can make him want to stay in one place. A strong sense of intuition guides Cancer and there is an almost unseen bond with the ones they love. Unfortunately it could also lead to exaggerated idolization and possessiveness as well. Gemini can turn this around by the reassurance that indeed, Cancer is truly loved. That will perfectly satisfy this water sign.
Cancer understands the nature of Gemini’s restlessness and develops a certain tolerance – thus leading to a pleasant compatibility. Cancer is to the point and the combination of a sense of humour and imagination can hold any audience captive. When this couples with the charisma and brain power of Gemini, the conversation is so stimulating that listeners are left wanting more. They are a mingling of having a sharp sense of humour and yet also a dream-like quality. There are mood swings very often – and this is also a similarity both these signs share. Cancer can move from being very depressed to being as sentimental as the old grand-mother in the family. Perhaps the day begins with Cancer being irritable and moody; but within a very short while they might be the personification of sunny good temper. A cheerful and chirpy could turn morose and brooding in minutes.
Romance blooming between Gemini and Cancer is somewhat of a strange affair. While Cancer is a little touchy and finds it difficult to give vent to feelings, clarity is the name of the game for the Gemini. The gentlemanly demeanour of Gemini and charming way of speaking could help Cancer to break through the barriers of reticence and express themselves without too much difficulty. Cancer in turn can help Gemini not to move like a whirlwind and slow down enough to appreciate the beauty around them, which they are hardly in the habit of doing. There can be problems if the Gemini does not make enough time to pay attention to the emotional needs of the Cancer. The differences between the Cancer and Gemini will have to be understood and appreciated if they are to have a strong and loving relationship.
Since the Cancer is cultured and compassionate, people are magnetically drawn to them. Hypocrisy is alien to their nature and they are prepared to work very hard even under very difficult circumstances and thus almost always get positive results. Though soft by nature, they enjoy being in charge and savour any attention showered on them. When an idea is in its initial stages, Cancer will push and prod and go on doing it, till the dream becomes concrete reality. Of course, the flip side is that they go on worrying about the outcome and the possibility of losing what they already have. This is the prime reason why their yearning and efforts at exerting control remains interred deep within them.
Gemini and Cancer are Mutable and Cardinal signs respectively.

If Gemini makes an effort to come out of his dream world and give cancer a hand with the more mundane and practical tasks, any business venture can work out very well. Though there could be differences where emotions are concerned, a romantic bonding is very positive for both these signs. Parenthood unleashes a fountain of joy because Geminis are by nature very friendly, while Cancerians love to nurture. So together their relationship is a loving one and very fulfilling too.
Mercury signifying communication and the Moon ruling emotions are the overlords of Gemini and Cancer respectively. As giving vent to the feelings and emotions is difficult for Cancer, they tend to keep their feelings stifled inside. They envy the open and forthcoming nature of Gemini, which is thanks to the influence of Mercury. Gemini can also learn and profit from the intuitive Cancer, which is so different from his own bubbly nature. Further, from Cancer, Gemini learns to slow down a tad and appreciated all that is beautiful in life instead of just moving on from one thing to another.
