We all know a couple who are constantly arguing but who seem to really get one another on a deeper level. Gemini and Aries compatibility is a lot like that – this is a couple who constantly seem to be on the verge of splitting up, but who surprise everyone by still being together year after year. Not the easiest of relationships, this partnership can work if both partners are truly in love, but it won’t be a quiet match!
The problem with this couple is that Gemini loves to discuss absolutely everything in great detail and to constantly analyse and second guess which course of action to take. Aries, on the other hand, just does it. If Aries forgets to consult Gemini over what should have been a joint decision, or if Gemini infuriates Aries once too often with their indecision, that could spell the end of this relationship. For Gemini and Aries, compatibility can depend entirely on the mood of the day or on how stressful day to day life is for the couple.
When life is flowing smoothly, this fire and air combination can set the pulse racing – after all, fire needs air to survive. Gemini’s intellect and intelligence turns Aries on, while Aries brings passion and enthusiasm to Gemini’s slightly aloof emotional demeanour. Although Gemini is not the most highly sexed of zodiac signs, as a short term fling there will be plenty of fun in the bedroom for this pair. On a long term basis, passion alone won’t sustain the partnership, unfortunately for Aries – Gemini compatibility requires more of an intellectual thrill than a physical one.
Gemini’s light hearted and flirtatious nature can send Aries into paroxysms of jealousy, even though Gemini doesn’t mean any harm by it. When Aries reacts to this, Gemini’s mood changes can startle and alarm Aries, who won’t quite know how to handle this mercurial, shape shifting Gemini partner. Gemini and Aries compatibility in many ways requires a leap of faith on Aries’ part. Gemini personifies duality of nature and can be two very different people almost at the same time (sometimes before breakfast). Aries is not used to this at all and can find it frustrating.
There are mutual attractions at work here, though. For Gemini and Aries, compatibility comes about through mutual admiration. Gemini adores the pioneering independence of Aries, and Aries wishes they had the charm, wit and social ease of Gemini. While Gemini is the consummate communicator, however, Aries is a sign of action, not words. Gemini loves to argue; Aries loves to win. It’s easy to see why constant bickering is a notable feature of this relationship, often to the point that others will wonder why they got together in the first place, let alone how they stay together!
Fire and air sign matches are not always successful, but when it comes to Gemini and Aries, compatibility is helped by a mutual understanding. The two zodiac signs are almost next to each other in the zodiac, which indicates that they do instinctively “get” one another, despite their very different ways of operating. It is this that keeps this bickering couple together, despite the odds. How long it will keep them together, though, is open to question. While patience is not a strong point for Aries, Gemini compatibility is relatively fickle, so this couple could move on from one another without too much difficulty.
Of course for some couples with Gemini/Aries, compatibility lasts a lifetime – remember that star sign compatibility is only a guide; you need an Astromatcha astrology compatibility report for the full picture. For many, however, this meeting of the communicator and the hero is a passing fancy. They will stay together long enough to learn from one another, and particularly long enough for Gemini to communicate what Aries needs – and then perhaps this is one air-fuelled inferno which will burn itself out.
