Gemini and Capricorn Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
The attraction that Gemini feels for Capricorn is in no way based on reality. A definite deviation from the norm is what attracts Gemini to Capricorn. It could a scent of the unknown, drugs or even plain and simple sincerity. In essence the Capricorn is tranquil, magnificent and at the same time is always changing. Gemini has the ability to highlight to the Capricornian all the beauty that there can be in music, arts or even literature; a sense of humour is also something important that Capricorn can learn from Gemini. The sign Capricorn can be so sedate that Geminis find themselves coming to an abrupt halt – which is a sure sign of attraction for them. So far as emotions are concerned, Capricorns are gentle; the Gemini, who is basically insecure seek the solidity and tranquillity that they themselves lack. By and large Gemini leads such a frenetic life that they truly appreciate that the Capricorn is there to depend on before commencement of the next whirlwind of activities.
Mercury which is the overlord of Communication rules Gemini and Capricorn is rules by Saturn which is the virtual emblem of power. It is a fact that there can also be an opposite effect. A cold masculine energy characterises Saturn. The basic features of Saturn helps this particular individual to persist and ultimately overcome all difficulties. Thanks to the androgynous energy of Mercury Geminis are blessed with an abundance of communication and intellect. Though neither one of them is one to give up easily, , there could a possibility of suppressing the natural emotions which would otherwise have come naturally to them. The natural instinct of a Gemini is to skim the surface of emotions; their love life is regarded in as light a manner as anything else. If proper care is not taken to keep the boundaries in place, Capricorn could have a very dampening effect on the high-spirited Gemini.
Gemini can be appropriately likened to the breeze that blows – which is unpredictable and keeps changing all the time. They are fiercely protective about their free will and just have to move about in whatever and however manner they choose. Since they are not run of the mill where their preferences are concerned, they could give the impression of being quirky and unusual. They have a rather futuristic trend of thinking and are also liable to change their way of thinking at the drop of a hat. This makes them very difficult to pin down. Being communicators comes naturally to them and they can argue for the simple enjoyment of debating a point – whether it is important or hardly makes a difference to anybody. Constant movement is the restless Gemini’s nature and it is good that someone can apply the brakes on them. Geminis are always up to a challenge – and it does not really matter whether it is a full blown idea or some actual ability.
If a Capricorn and a Gemini actually fall in love, the going might be somewhat difficult because they can barely remember why they have come together and their approach to the world is polar opposite. If their operational platform is love and mutual amicability, it is possible to overcome almost every obstacle. However, the labour involved in this is extremely tough going. Gemini has to learn how to think beyond the box; they depend to a very large extent on their charm and intellect to pull them out of any sticky situation. While Capricorn is also concerned with moving forward, they do so through time tested methods – without really bothering about how much time it takes. Gemini does mind at all taking risky short-cuts, but the preference of a Capricorn is always to be thorough. The challenge that is faced by this couple is adjusting their mental attitudes in such a manner that both can reach their goal at the same time.
Capricorns have a certain old world grace about them and they have a decided preference for the traditional elegance. Since money and status are important to them, they do not have any problems at all working hard for those goals – as also respectability. Sometimes it might happen, but by and large they are not very fond of trying out new-fangled ideas, but prefer to go in for time tested norms. Though a Capricorn does not really mind listening to some juicy gossip, they are not the ones to spread baseless rumours around. Almost all Capricorns believe that it is a far better idea to be cautious than to be sorry. They keep open their options of saying yes or no. Family plays a very important role in their lives and they are generally loved and cherished a great deal.
Capricorn and Gemini are Earth and Air signs respectively. The sign Capricorn is grounded, balanced and very well organized. Unnecessary risks are just not a viable proposition. In direct contrast Gemini analyses and theorizes and happily moves in any direction that appeals to them. Capricorn never fails to ask himself what good moving in any particular direction will do. But Gemini is more than happy to just flow with the tide.
Capricorns and Geminis have to labour very hard to make a strong and viable working relationship. That close bonding just does not exist. Gemini has to put in a great deal of effort to convince Capricorn about any project because they have to be sure it is going to be worth any effort that they put in. If it is family ties that are concerned, then the bonds are already there and existing. So far as any business project is concerned Capricorns find it tough working with Geminis because there is a constant impression that they really do not work very hard. However, Capricorns can create an aura that works a bewildering magic and actually gets the work done. So far as a romantic relationship is concerned, it is a mite more difficult because their basic needs and demands are very difficult. Should Gemini be a little more willing to give time to the home and should Capricorn be a little more expressive, things should work out very well. Parenthood appeals very strongly to Capricorns and Geminis and both thoroughly enjoy the experience.
Their almost magical way with words allows them to get out of any sticky situation and also handle anyone who dares tangle horns with them. This tendency is positive anathema to the more reticent Capricorn. Despite a thorough enjoyment of salacious gossip, Capricorn does not like to get involved. This smacks of hypocrisy, which does not appeal to the Gemini at all. The serious veneer of Capricorn does not appeal to a Gemini at all and depresses him; Gemini’s habit of flitting about all the time is just as much of an anathema to a Capricorn. However, just a tad of sacrifice can push through all these hurdles and build a relationship that is strong and lasting. If the inconsistent Gemini learns the art of patience, the Capricorn in turn will be truly loving and an everlasting relationship will result. Then it will be such that Capricorn finds a fun companion and cheerful one who will be a strong and supportive friend.
Being a Cardinal sign Capricorn likes remaining in control and initiating matters. As a Mutable sign Gemini is far more elastic and quite content to follow behind Capricorn; of course this is as long as they are not forced to do anything. There is an overriding need to feel to make any decision – positive, negative or just neutral. If Geminis feel that they are being bullied, then they tend to distance themselves and become aloof and difficult to reach. If this relationship holds any sort of meaning to either one of them, then they will sometimes have to be given a very long rope to freedom.
As a combination both these signs are as hypnotic as they are annoying. Gemini is more light-hearted and jovial. On the other hand Capricorn is grave and tends to focus on building foundations and takes commitments very seriously. For them to get along together is a tough job, but if they are sufficiently serious about doing so, they are indeed a perfect complement to each other.
In contrast to the quiet and unassuming Capricorn the unruly and very social Gemini is a direct contrast. By nature Capricorn is unhurried, stable and adamant about what he has in mind. Geminis on the other hand are so elastic that they keep changing their minds at the drop of a hat and they are also intelligent enough to see through any loophole that might be right in front. Capricorn finds it a tough proposition to believe that short-cuts can in any way help in reaching the set goal faster rather than going the long drawn out way which usually takes a longer time. However, a combination of both attitudes will work wonders in getting any work perfectly done. Rather than a romantic couple, Capricorn and Gemini make good business partners.
Capricorn is adept at finding something constructive for the Gemini to try their skills at; Gemini is just as skilled at appeasing the Capricorn. By and large Capricorn is not taken in by Gemini no matter how sweetly he talks. In the eventuality that this does happen, it might well be taken for granted that such a mistake will never happen again. The idea of settling down in some place has never held too much of an appeal for the Gemini. What appeal Capricorn can learn from Gemini is socializing with people, sharing their points of view and yet retaining the norms that they are fond of. Gemini and Capricorn bond in their own individual ways at whatever corner of the world. Both can compromise and work together – if there is some give and take.
Capricorn and Gemini both bring their individual characteristics to any sharing that takes place. A very positive method is by giving a little space to each other and allowing each other some space. The relationship is a stimulating one if both are prepared to learn from each other. This is the very best factor about their relationship.
