Which Star Signs Should Gemini Date?



Which Star Signs does Gemini get along with most easily? What are the best, the worst – and the most intriguing – compatibility matches for Gemini? Which Star Signs should a Gemini man or woman date?

Gemini Compatibility

Because Gemini is so adaptable and has such good people skills, it tends to get along well with just about everybody at a superficial level. In more intimate relationships, however, it's deeply uncomfortable with possessive partners who want to tie it down. For optimum compatibility, Gemini does best with someone who shares its freedom loving approach to life and won’t get upset by its unpredictable ways.

Signs Most Compatible With Gemini

As a Star Sign ruled by the Element of Air, the safest bet for a Gemini is probably one of the other two Air Signs, i.e. LIBRA or AQUARIUS. The favorable 120° – or 4 Signs – spacing between Zodiac Signs in the same Element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.

Both Libra and Aquarius are good compatibility matches for Gemini since they share Gemini’s thinking, objective and people-oriented approach to life. However, Aquarius probably just beats Libra as the better compatibility choice for Gemini. Because Aquarians value their own freedom so highly, they find it relatively easier to handle Gemini’s restless, non-committal love style than togetherness-seeking Libra.

Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with logical Gemini, while also helping to galvanize it into action, are the passionate Fire Signs ARIES and LEO, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Gemini. Many believe this kind of Fire-Air combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac Signs apart.

What About Another Gemini?

So what about another GEMINI as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Gemini of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Gemini qualities – like their intelligence, wit and incredible versatility.

But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Gemini people – most likely their superficiality and inconsistency – that you’ll positively hate! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!

Signs Least Compatible With Gemini

The truth is, Gemini, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their Star Sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.

For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the Star Sign of PISCES. Because Pisces is at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 Sign spacing) from Gemini, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are these people will be too incompatible with you – and just too much hard work!

Of all the Star Signs, Pisces probably qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Gemini. Due to their extreme sensitivity and deep need for personal intimacy, Pisceans may find it harder than just about anyone else to cope with Gemini’s coolly unemotional – and at times rather cruelly over-logical – outlook.

There may also be lesser compatibility challenges with the Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 signs) from Gemini, i.e. SCORPIO and CAPRICORN. Although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving Signs in conflicting elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad, however, as they might appear. Okay, these combinations may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!

Why Opposites Attract

Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Gemini, what you’re really looking for, from a Star Sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the Sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. SAGITTARIUS, can be a great compatibility match for you, Gemini.

Opposite Star Signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole. When dating a Sagittarius, cool-headed Gemini can benefit from its opposite Sign’s more passionate and strongly instinctive approach. Gemini’s tendency towards scattiness is less of a problem with a wise Sagittarius by its side.

Neighboring Star Signs

Although Gemini is quite different from its immediate neighbors, TAURUS and CANCER, in reality it can relate quite well to – and frequently enjoys quite a good level of compatibility with – these Star Signs. This is because people whose Sun Sign is Gemini often have Mercury or Venus – which can never be far from the Sun – in the preceding or following Signs of Taurus or Cancer. Many Gemini-Taurus or Gemini-Cancer couples will therefore embody a number of each other’s characteristics and have far more in common than you might initially expect.

Gemini Compatibility ‘Wild Card’

Although not technically recognized as a good compatibility match for Gemini because of the discordant 90° angle, VIRGO can be a popular ‘wild card’ partnership choice for the Sign of the Twins. Both ruled by Mercury, the planet of intellect, Gemini and Virgo are closely linked at a mental level, possessing the same sharp wit and agility of mind which makes for lively communication – as well as plenty of acrimonious arguments. A challenging partnership choice for any Gemini who enjoys a bit of intellectual cut and thrust!

How Can Gemini Improve Their Compatibility?

To improve their chances of getting on better with every Star Sign, Gemini should focus on showing others less of their most annoying traits, i.e. their capriciousness and lack of commitment, and more of what's most endearing about them, i.e. charm, wit and sense of humor. If you're a Gemini, in general everyone will find you easier to live with if you try harder to be consistent and never to break your promises. This will be particularly important in the case of Star Sign matches which present the biggest compatibility challenges for a Gemini, as detailed above.
