The Gemini man is drawn to the Cancer woman because he sense that here is a woman who can take care of him, and make his life easy – freeing him to pursue his intellectual interests in his own time. This is true, but what’s in it for her? Gemini man Cancer woman compatibility is a workable relationship, provided that the Gemini man remembers to offer his Cancer woman the love and respect she needs.
In many ways, this couple epitomize a battle between the head and the heart. The Gemini man is uber-rational, with many diverse interests and a tendency to analyze everything in intellectual terms. The Cancer woman, on the other hand, is a soulful creature, whose heart definitely rules her head. She is deeply emotional and will make decisions based on instinct. Logic rarely gets a look in, and when it does it only makes her worry more about making the right choice. For the Gemini man and Cancer woman, compatibility needs to forge these two very different ways of being, bringing the best of both to the partnership.
It can be done. The Gemini man can provide a lively and curious adventure to the Cancer woman, opening up doors she didn’t know existed, and encouraging her to make the most of her life. The Cancer woman will, as we already know, take care of the Gemini man, but more than that, she can show him how not to be afraid of his emotions, and she can teach him that his instincts can be trusted. Sometimes, however, she will tire of his eternal youthfulness – it’s as if she has an extra child in the house! Gemini man Cancer woman compatibility will try the patience of the Cancer woman, that’s for sure.
The problem is that she is looking for emotional security and stability. The Gemini man is unlikely to provide much of that – he’s too fickle and changeable. The Cancer woman perceives a certain amount of risk in loving a Gemini man. The fact that she’s willing to take the chance in the first place should flatter the Gemini guy – but he’s unlikely to notice, because he doesn’t, at first, understand her emotional depths. One thing he does understand, however, is her moodiness, because he’s moody himself in a different way. The Cancer woman will appreciate his knowing when to approach and when to back off, and she will certainly adore his ability to say the right thing at the right time – but she won’t tolerate the superficiality of feeling that Gemini is known for.
For the Gemini man and Cancer woman, compatibility also means juggling their very different priorities. For the Cancer woman, her home and family is her absolute top priority, every time. Not her career, and certainly not her Gemini guy. For him, however the top priority is to explore and to learn, and if that means uprooting the family to go and live in Guyana for a year, he’s cool with that. She won’t be. Compromise is of course essential, then, if Gemini man Cancer woman compatibility is to work out. And guess who’s going to have to do the compromising? Gemini guy, all the way. The Cancer woman is a fixed sign, and she won’t budge from her life’s purpose.
The success or failure of this relationship therefore depends on how in love the Gemini man is. If he’s smitten by his gorgeous Cancer woman, he’ll be willing to change. But the question is, will he get bored by her homeliness before he really falls deeply in love?
