When Gemini and Gemini come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s unpredictable and moody! These two over-analyzers love a healthy debate, which can also lead to heated arguments. A Gemini-Gemini relationship works because you both understand each other’s quirks.
Gemini and Gemini: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Get the psychiatrist on the phone! When the zodiac’s Twins pair up there are at least four people in the relationship…and possibly more. This wildly unpredictable combo has an uncanny way of working. Who else would understand your need to collect Japanese action figures at age 40, or that storage unit you rented out (and maybe even lived in for a few weeks) just to house your beloved collection of vintage clothes? If you accept your own quirks, loving another Gemini won’t be hard.
Where you clash:
Issues arise when kids come into the picture. Who will be the stable grownup that provides structure and consistency that children need? The maturing phase this brings could be a buzzkill for your romance if you don’t work out some sort of plan. Hey, maybe your parents could move in upstairs. Then, the entire family can keep on playing…your favorite thing to do! Make sure you don’t foist an overly responsible role onto your offspring (as in “their parents’ parents”) by sharing TMI during your mood swings or allowing them to see you work through your issues in Gemini debate-and-overanalyze style.
Gemini and Gemini 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.
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.
As a same-element couple, make a conscious effort to not get stuck in a rut or even a competitive dynamic.
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 and Gemini are both mutable signs
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 the case of two mutable signs, it’s non-stop variety and spontaneity. This can make life a grand adventure—one week you’re in Bali, the next you’re in Berlin—but you can also get totally ungrounded as a duo. Who’s gonna create the structure in this relationship? (Zero hands raised.) Making a decision (or even committing!) can also be difficult, since neither of you likes to be locked into anything permanent. This is the couple that’s together for decades, but never “gets around” to marrying. The idea of freedom actually serves as a binding agent between the two of you. (Case study: the mutable match of Sagittarius Brad Pitt and Gemini Angelina Jolie was a global-citizen love story until they relented to tradition and tied the knot.) Sure it’s a bit of a paradox, but that’s the way your signs like it. Mutable signs specialize in communication and discovery. Together, you can be lifelong learners who never run out of topics to talk about. On a bad day, you can be argumentative, flaky and overbooked—your own separate lives may be stuffed to the gills with too many projects, plans and friends, making it hard to find enough quality time together. Be careful not to scatter your energy and spread yourselves too thin in this love match.
Gemini and Gemini 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 Gemini are conjunct (the same sign)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are conjunct, or the same sign (zero signs apart). As they say, how can you love somebody else unless you love yourself? If you date or get into a relationship with someone of the same sign, congratulations. You’ve probably embraced your quirks and accepted your humanity. Now, you can celebrate that with a kindred spirit! If you haven’t learned to love yourself, warts and all, this relationship can inspire some crucial self-acceptance. Remember, though: #twinning might be comfortable, but autonomy is important to keep that frisky friction. Maintain some separation between your lives, even if it’s easy to hang out together. Otherwise, passion may cool to a brother-sister vibe.
