Gemini and Aquarius are the couple who have been together for years, but never seem to settle down. These two free spirits understand one another almost perfectly and complement one another in many ways. Gemini and Aquarius compatibility is strong and potentially long lasting too, in an unconventional way.
For this couple, it’s all about the meeting of minds. Mental stimulation is vital for Gemini and Aquarius compatibility depends upon an intellectual match too. They can talk endlessly over wide ranging topics, and they will never run out of conversation with one another. Both signs are intellectually curious and always learning, so they can form a strong bond over shared experiences and mutual personal growth. This couple is extremely sociable too, with Gemini being the quintessential social butterfly and Aquarius being fascinated by just about everyone.
Although there is a strong underlying bond of friendship, and a terrific mental connection, this couple does perhaps lack the passion of some other pairings. Both Aquarius and Gemini can be quite emotionally aloof at times, and without some strong sensuality from elsewhere in their charts, their sex life could be a little clinical. Not boring, as such, because both signs will like to experiment, but almost scientific in nature! For Gemini and Aquarius, compatibility is not built around passion, but neither partner is particularly bothered by that as their priorities lie elsewhere.
Don’t expect this couple to settle down quickly – if at all. They may well be madly in love, but might stay living apart, or spend long periods of time living away from one another. Most couples would balk at that, but for Gemini and Aquarius compatibility actually increases with some distance between them. Both signs are determined to maintain their freedom and independence at all costs, so this kind of loose arrangement suits them both perfectly. Handily, neither partner will be bothered by the raised eyebrows this kind of situation provokes among their more conventional friends and family members! In fact, that will probably delight Aquarius and amuse Gemini. Sign compatibility here indicates that what the neighbours may think is simply not a concern to these too.
When they are together, this couple also maintain a healthy balance of together time and outside interests, each with very much their own life to lead. This blend is probably a large part of what makes Gemini and Aquarius compatibility work so well. If neither partner feels under pressure to commit or to offer more time than they want to, neither partner will rebel. Which, for Aquarius, is quite saying something, as the zodiac’s Visionary is also its resident rebel.
This inner rebelliousness is also reflected in Gemini at times, to this is a highly progressive relationship, ahead of its time. In fact, with Gemini ruled by communicative Mercury and Aquarius ruled by shocking Uranus, together this couple could start a social revolution all of their own. They certainly won’t care about convention, but they do have (just) enough common sense between them to ensure that the details of daily life are taken are of. Gemini and Aquarius compatibility gives rise to the kind of relationship which is not everyone’s cup of tea – but then, whose business is it besides these two?
The only potential problems in this positive relationship may come if Aquarius, a fixed sign, proves too stubborn and inflexible for mutable, adaptable Gemini, or if Gemini’s superficiality annoys thoughtful, analytical Aquarius. Fortunately, Aquarius has some reserves of patience, even if these are lacking in Gemini; sign compatibility here will help resolve any problems which arise. These are minor issues, in any case, and not likely to be the root cause of a break up for this otherwise strong couple. They have their own moral code and values and it will take something serious to disrupt the quirky harmony they have found.
At its best, then, the relationship between the Communicator and the Visionary is a beautiful, expressive and very healthy thing. They widen one another’s horizons, share each other’s curiosity about life and give one another enough space to breathe but not enough to drift apart. A trendsetting, exciting, dynamic and quirky couple, that’s Gemini and Aquarius. Compatibility between these two is one to watch.
