When Gemini and Pisces come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s surreal and also moody! But these two commitment-phobes actually find common ground together, and this relationship could really withstand the test of time. A Gemini-Pisces relationship is equally harmonizing, since both of your signs represent duality.
Gemini and Pisces: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Welcome to the surreal world. You both prefer fantasy over reality, and will quickly become one another’s creative muse. Both signs are prone to mood swings, so this matchup can be a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride. You’re both “dual” signs—Gemini is symbolized by the Twins, and Pisces by two Fish swimming away from each other. As a result, it can feel like there are four people in this relationship…none of whom can every make a decision that sticks! If you can get past your commitment-phobia, this can be an enduring match that inspires legendary works of art.
Where you clash:
On most days, Gemini grooves to a club-friendly dance mix while Pisces longs to plunge into a deep house track. Can you discover a common beat? Pisces can find Gemini superficial at times, while Gemini wishes Pisces would just lighten up already! On a constant quest for “The One,” you can both overanalyze a partner instead of just sitting still and enjoying the moment. Your home can also turn into a den of chaos and clutter. You’re both pack rats and will need to purge your collections regularly—or set up an eBay store to create extra income for your nights on the town.
Gemini is air and Pisces is water
Head and heart combine—or collide—when you pair a talkative air sign with a touchy-feely water sign. The temperaments of these two elements are wildly different. Air signs love change, variety and novelty while sentimental water signs seek security, comfort and nostalgia. One of you is all about the new, while the other cherishes the old. You’ll have to learn to appreciate this major difference. Otherwise, you could quickly feel like you have nothing in common!
Your social habits may need some tweaking to make this work. Water signs don’t trust easily, and tend to roll with a tight-knit clique—many of whom they’ve known since childhood. By contrast, air signs never met a stranger and are constantly introducing you to their latest BFFs. The water sign might be jealous or threatened by all of these newcomers, while the air sign feels suffocated and bored by seeing the same old faces. Compromise is key. The water sign partner will have to be more open to new people and experiences, going with the flow. The air sign will have to embrace tradition and develop more emotional sensitivity.
The benefits of this match is an opportunity for growth. Since water signs can be TOO “in their feelings,” the cooler, rational air sign partner can teach them the power of detaching. The water sign will learn how to take things less personally, laugh at themselves and lighten up. In exchange, the water sign can teach the glib air sign to dive into their depths more, rather than being overly superficial or turning everything into a joke. The water sign may create a cozy, beautiful home, while the air sign fills it with interesting guests, music and art. Both of these elements can be “culture vultures,” and may bond of dissecting a documentary film, singing karaoke (you both could have encyclopedic knowledge of lyrics) or even traveling.
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 of a different astrological element can be challenging, but also a beautiful opportunity to evolve. After all, differences push you both to grow and step outside of your own experience.
Gemini and Pisces 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 is yang and Pisces is yin
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). In your sign match, Pisces is a receptive yin sign and Gemini is an assertive yang sign. When you play to your strengths, you balance each other out, each on contributing a different but complementary skill set. When things are off, you can become polarized. The yin sign can be too passive (or passive-aggressive) and sacrificing, while the yang sign may act domineering, aggressive and selfish. To rebalance, the yin sign needs to work on being more open, direct and confident, while the yang sign should cultivate more patience, tolerance and sensitivity.
Gemini and Pisces are square (three signs apart)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are square, or three signs apart. Mommy and daddy issues, anyone? The square aspect is a harsh, 90-degree angle between two signs that creates a push-pull dynamic. It’s the relationship that helps you work through issues with a difficult parent, usually by reactivating old, painful wounds. There can be power struggles and clashing agendas. Don’t expect to kick back and put your feet up in this match. The dynamic tension will keep you active and keyed up. Of course, that could be exactly what you want. The opportunity of the “square” aspect is to teach you how to compromise with an equally strong-willed partner. When you strike that delicate balance, you can make an undeniable “power couple”—a true force to be reckoned with.
