When Gemini and Aquarius come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s heaven on Earth! These future-forward thinkers share the gift of gab and a love for collaboration and community. A Gemini-Aquarius relationship is stimulating and exciting, because you share a passion for solving life’s great mysteries.
Gemini and Aquarius: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
It’s soulmate heaven on Earth, Mercury, Venus and Uranus! Like Captain Kirk meeting Princess Leah, it’s bound to be otherworldly when you two sci-fi lovers park your spaceships in the same interplanetary dimension. As fellow seekers, you’re both on a quest to solve life’s mysteries. Why not team up as copilots? Your combined intellectual powers are awe-inspiring. The ideas you come up with together will be nothing short of genius. Gemini is better at starting a project, but stick-to-it Aquarius will take your joint efforts to the finish line bringing financial prosperity for you both.
Where you clash:
While you romance each other intellectually, neither of you knows quite what to do with those funny things called feelings. Book that couple’s therapist session before the wedding day, as it’s going to take a third party to teach you how to navigate the emotional realm. As co-parents your unpredictable whims make it difficult to create a settled and secure foundation for kids.
Gemini and Aquarius are both air signs
Let’s take a road trip! Ooh, yay! And then we’ll hop a standby flight or go skydiving. Yes yes yes! By the way, I just scored two Hamilton tickets—surprise! We’re going to New York! Put two spontaneous air signs together, and you might just get an exciting, non-stop barrage of conversation and ideas. But do any of these grand schemes actually happen? That’s the challenge in a double air-sign duo—and a noble one you might both just rise to! Your social signs both crave novelty. You’ll be the first in line to try the buzzy new restaurant, see a trending new band or get the latest iPhone upgrade. In fact, you might be the pair camped outside the Apple store, entertaining the crowds with a magic show or a mobile coffee cart.
For best results, strike the right amount of change and stability.
Trouble begins in an air-sign love match when there’s TOO much change. You may be constantly on the move and never really rooted. There can be flakiness, as you blow with the wind, or run as “hot and cold” as the air temperatures outside. You both easily get scattered, and your million friends, activities and separate interests could make it hard to find quality time. Air signs are communicative, but not always compassionate—your arguments can turn into brutal verbal dagger-flinging.
For best results, strike the right amount of change and stability. Our aunt and uncle, both air signs, were constantly renovating their home—and while it often added chaos, it seemed to keep them together. Their home was like a modern art gallery with constantly rotating exhibits—and the hotspot for massive parties, thrown “just because.” Entertaining is a huge connective factor for two air signs. Your combined social circle can rival the circumference of the earth! In fact, you’re at your best when enjoying the company of many different people. Air signs crave constant stimulation (and might even be the pair who pulls off an open relationship). Too many romantic nights-for-two can get boring, so don’t spend excessive time alone together, lapse into lazy homebody mode or rush into cohabitation.
There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. A love match with someone from the same astrological element offers the comfort of familiarity. At last, you don’t have to explain yourself all the time! As lovely as that is, it can also be “too much of a good thing,” causing your relationship to feel like a single track on continuous replay. As a same-element couple, make a conscious effort to not get stuck in a rut or even a competitive dynamic. Spending time with people of another element can introduce a more balancing energy. For example, a grounded earth sign can ground you by adding more structure and tradition. A sensitive water sign can bring you out of your heads and into your hearts.
Gemini is mutable and Aquarius is fixed
In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? In this love match, it can be hard to get in sync. Can we make a plan around here? Fixed signs crave stability and mutable signs love change. Compromise is key so you don’t drive each other crazy! The fixed sign in this relationship likes to make a decision or plan and stick with it. By contrast, the ever-changing mutable sign is always changing things—adding one more guest, jamming one more coffee date into their day, starting another project before they finish the 50 they already have going. When a mutable-fixed duo plays to their strength, the fixed sign can create a solid structure that upholds the mutable sign’s creative plans. Adaptable mutable signs help the fixed sign to be less rigid—to loosen up and go with the flow. For long-term success, the mutable mate will have to work harder at keeping their word, showing up on time and being consistent. Some plans are simply non-negotiable! In exchange the fixed sign will have to give an inch and be willing to try new things.
Gemini and Aquarius are both yang, or masculine signs
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are both yang signs: aggressive, action-oriented and driven. In this astrology love match, you can motivate each other…or you can find yourself in a power struggle. Two yang signs must be careful not to bulldoze or tread on each other’s turf. Sharing the power and taking turns having the upper hand will be the key to your happiness.
Gemini and Aquarius are trine (four signs apart)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are trine, or four signs apart. In this love match, it can feel like “home sweet home” The trine sign mate has the same element as yours (fire, earth, air or water), creating an unspoken kinship and harmony. At last—you don’t have to constantly explain yourself. You’ve never felt so comfortable, so understood on a core level. This is the person you can burp and pass gas around, or use the bathroom with the door open when they’re home. But don’t invest in a wardrobe full of elastic waistbands just yet. In trine relationships, you’ll need to preserve some mystery to keep things exciting. Make sure you stay active and on the go, and don’t do everything together. A little autonomy goes a long way to keep the passion alive.
