If there is a mishap, Gemini does not hesitate to run off in search of fresh and pristine pastures. To a Leo this seems extremely unseemly and rude. Though they might love a Gemini, Leos do not hesitate in giving them a thorough dressing down into realizing the stupidity and irresponsible nature of their behaviour. Despite realizing that what the Leo is saying is true,Geminis are disproportionately annoyed at having their mistakes pointed out so sharply. If the Leo can learn to adjust a little, they will learn to accept what the Gemini is very justified in pointing out. In turn Geminis would also do well to consider that being grounded is not such a bad idea after all.

However, both signs are quite aware of the underlying motives behind both. It is a fact though that Leo has the courage and chutzpah that they believe they have; this rises to the fore when there is a need for it.

A Gemini is more happy to get out of the way for the Leo and watch quietly from the side-lines.
