Gemini - Leo Love Compatibility


The Communicator and the Ruler


There can be a strangely ‘fated’ quality to relationships between Star Signs like Gemini and Leo which are 60° apart. Because the two individuals can sense they have an important part to play in each other’s lives, they may find it hard to resist each other – and even harder to part.


Star Signs which are two signs apart from each other, such as Gemini and Leo, are ruled by complementary elements, here Air and Fire, and for this reason are traditionally considered to get on very well in a love relationship. What makes these signs so compatible is that the two are linked by sufficient similarities to allow them to function harmoniously together, yet at the same time there are enough differences to provide an alternative perspective and create that all important spark of excitement.

There's a huge amount of fizz and sparkle here! Both being dedicated party animals, Gemini and Leo share the same gregarious, pleasure-loving approach to life, which makes for a lot of fun. Socially, this pair work brilliantly together: with the flamboyant Lion's flair for performing, and smooth-tongued Gemini's chat-up skills, they make great networkers and hosts.

Of course, Gemini and Leo are also quite unalike in that while Leo tends to be quite instinctive and passionate, Gemini is rather more cerebral and detached; and whereas Leo’s strong point is its sticking power (and its weak point its fixity), Gemini tends to be much more adaptable (and at times a bit inconsistent). However, because these traits balance each other well, a Gemini-Leo couple has the potential to be a highly successful team!


Because Gemini and Leo are both big kids at heart, they will typically enjoy lots of fun, play and laughter in each other’s company. At first glance this appears to be an idyllically well-matched emotional pairing. But behind all the light-hearted revelry lurk a few hidden emotional differences which could cause trouble between a Gemini-Leo couple if not given due consideration.

The main issue for Leo in this relationship can be not getting enough of Gemini’s undivided attention to satisfy its insatiable desire for recognition, causing it to feel unloved and unappreciated. Because what Leo wants most is to be the number one person in Gemini’s life, it may be resentful of the amount of time and energy the Air Sign devotes to networking with its large circle of friends and contacts. On the other hand, to freedom-loving Gemini, the attention-seeking Lion can come across as overly possessive and smothering.


Sexually, Gemini and Leo have much in common, both oozing charm and sex appeal and both thriving on excitement. Okay, so the Lion's sensitive ego may sometimes be hurt by Gemini's compulsive flirting and its take-it-or-leave-it approach to love, while for cool-headed Gemini, Leo's pride can be hard to fathom and its drama queen antics exasperating. To get the best out of this relationship sexually, the Big Cat has to learn to be less demanding, while Gemini needs to show more respect!


On the whole, these two Star Signs click really well at a mental level, both being positive-minded, outgoing communicators who enjoy expressing their thoughts and ideas in an upbeat and lively way. However, Gemini is more intellectually inclined and has a more objective way of thinking than Leo, who tends to looks at issues mainly from its own perspective and is prone to taking things quite personally at times.

While Gemini’s conversation revolves around a wide ranging mix of general gossip and news topics, Leo is more interested in talking about itself and what’s currently going on in its own life. At times, Gemini finds it hard not to poke fun at Leo’s mental self-preoccupation, much to the indignation of the Big Cat, who complains that it’s not being taken seriously enough or shown sufficient respect.

Yet because at the end of the day these two signs would much rather laugh together than argue, any minor misunderstandings tend to blow over very fast!

There will undoubtedly be times when the loyal, steadfast Lion is frustrated by butterfly Gemini’s changeability and unwillingness to make a firm commitment. Or when the Fixed Fire Sign’s stubbornness, rigidity and distaste for too much ‘intellectual’ activity leaves Gemini feeling mentally short-changed. But in the grand order of things, these are minor compatibility challenges which shouldn’t detract from the ability of these two signs to get along well in a love relationship.
