I'm a Midwesterner with a background in writing and media. My articles are mainly about relationships, dating, and heartbreak.

Introduction to Astrology

Aries and Gemini are both spring seasons. They will relate to each other for this reason. Some astrologers say that wind signs and fire signs go together, but I say that any match is possible with the right understanding of what recipe you are using for love. I am here to help guide you with how these relationships work. I am going through the 72 different relationship combinations in Western astrology. You can follow my writing to find more articles about the other signs, how they like to interact through text, and what each sign's compatibility is with the other 11.

I've said this many times, but any combination in astrology has found success in the natural world. We can also find any combination leading to divorce. There is no perfect match that every sign needs to go find. You may find that you are attracted to certain signs over and over again. This may mean that you have lessons to learn from that zodiac or that you need to have some past attachments released so that you are more free.

So throw out any prior thoughts where you may have been conditioned to think that certain zodiac combinations are impossible or certain ones are flawless. Each one is like a separate recipe. You don't treat how you make a chocolate cake the same way you would tiramisu. The natural world allows for these 72 combinations to teach us about life, weather, nature, the seasons, and our bodies. So I encourage you to be open minded and learn more. Together we can uncover a lot of the mysteries in astrology handed down to us by our ancestors.

Aries + Gemini

Aries is the beginning of spring, the beginning of the year, and the beginning of life. Pisces sacrifices itself so that a new year can begin. Aries has the mentality of a first child. They want to be independent from their parents. No sign is more marked than Aries when it comes to being born. It strongly wants to separate from the womb and go after its own individuality. It remembers the birth process, and also sees it being repeated throughout the year as other signs are born and pass the torch to the next phase. Aries people want to massively explore the world and all the ideas the world has to offer. Aries doesn't like settling down and breaking things into parts; they want to continue to march forward. They are forerunners for the other 11 signs. They are not necessarily the most affectionate or attentive, but they make up for this in passion.

Gemini will also go incredibly quick into the world of ideas and adventures. Gemini is not one to settle permanently in one corner of the Earth. They are very indecisive, loving to have many options come to the table before them. They are the first mutable sign, which has to do with being open minded and exploring all options. Gemini is before summer, so it sets the stage for warmer weather patterns. Aries is when flowers are just beginning to bloom, and Gemini is when the flowers are generally in perfect bloom. Gemini is a common time for people to get married. The weather isn't too hot, college students are probably just finishing their semester, and then you can kick off the summer with a fun vacation or a honeymoon. This is why the next sign, Cancer, is like... a pregnant woman. Cancer is like the mother of Aries in a way. We can learn a lot through the zodiac about our own nature on this planet, humanity, and how energy around us effects us. It's an old system for math, science, and literacy... and not just for horoscopes or as a calendar.

Constantly Doing, Never Reflecting

These two are going to be very spontaneous in their relationship. Minds are going to change frequently. Gemini is pretty cool with that and can generally go along with random things. Gemini does have some moodswings since it is based off duality and twins. Gemini are geniuses because they are able to hold two opposing ideas in their minds without feeling a sense of insanity. Gemini likes to think in opposites, duals, and patterns. They can come off like Jekyll and Hyde. Aries is so passionate about what it wants and taking charge that it will probably help lead the relationship, but together they will constantly be looking for new territory, new ideas, and new explorations.

They may need to work on slowing down and having consistency. They may run into troubles because they don't care about practical matters. These are two signs that could easily go on a spending spree, and then have a lot of materials that they don't need and crowd up their space. So it would be good for these two to evaluate what they are doing and reflect, but wind and fire signs have a tendency to be more yang than yin, and so they often forget to be reflective and that can hurt them. They'll need to employ skills when it comes to introspection and accepting the world for its tasks. Sometimes Aries and Gemini don't want to take responsibility. They lean on Taurus to take responsibility for the effects that they bring, because Taurus is the caretaker of the garden. Aries helps produce it, and Gemini lives in it. So it would help them to remember the center of spring and how that effects them on a deeper level. If Aries just creates without nurturing, all we would have on the planet are constant buds never getting to fully blossom. If we only look to the end of Spring then we don't realize the work that took place so that life could be there in the first place.

Gemini needs to think in retrospect in order to understand the cause and effect of reality. This is all applicable to their relationship. Aries needs to take ownership of what it does and how it contributes both positively and negatively to the relationship. Gemini needs to think back on the past and how it contributes to the present.

Aries on Jealousy

Wind signs are natural charismatic people. They will have a lot of bubbly, friendships. For other signs this can be confusing, because they don't know where to draw the line between flirtatious and friendly. Wind signs have a bit more gab-and-charisma about these lines and when and when not to cross them. They are not meaning to trigger jealously out of their partner. They are trying to be friendly and kind to others, so you may run into a number of people while dating a Gemini.

Aries is passionate and has jealous tendencies, especially with a first child mentality. The first child can feel like the attention its parents used to give them is diminished when another child is born. This can frustrate Aries who likes attention, who has a bit of an ego, and really wants to be validated for their worth. Leo is like this as well—it is kind of a fire sign trait.

As for jealously, Aries and Scorpio in particular can get really confused with wind signs and how many friends they defer to instead of their partner (at times). Aries needs to work on trust and Gemini needs to work on reassuring Aries of its affection and loyalty. It is not good for any sign to cut off their friends for their romantic partner. They will have to balance this, but you do need to consider if your partner is asking too much of you. If your partner is making a lot of demands to reign in your network of friends and focus on them, this might not be a sign thing but a narcissist thing. Gemini needs to be able to meet different people because through other people's minds it collects ideas. Gemini refreshes this way, and it allows it to bring in new conversations into the relationship.

Relationship Dynamic

Aries is more assertive, firey, intense, demanding, and argumentative. This can play well with Gemini who is more easy going, flexible, and apt to play along. Gemini will enjoy going along with Aries and their bigger than life ideas. Aries is somewhat stubborn and can use this to help ground the relationship. Gemini is one of the most open minded and ready to try new things. Gemini can help lower Aries' stress and temper. Gemini is a lot more relaxed in that regard. These two will like exploring each other's minds. They will run off in any direction with whatever whim they come across, so they need to remember when that leads to something negative and do what they can to protect themselves in the future.

Gemini will be a great listener and soundboard for Aries and its never ending ideas. Gemini can keep up with Aries thoughts, and Aries can be mystified and delighted by Gemini's unique and well thought out ideas. This won't be the most gushy relationship. Gushy relationships can throw Aries off and make them feel as though someone is trying to control them, so then Aries has to work through that, which can be good for it. Gemini is so cerebral that if things get really mushy, especially constantly, it could become overwhelming and too clingy for it.

Further Understanding Astrology

For your own understanding of the zodiac, it is meant to be mathematical. It is a calendar system. It is broken up into multiples of 12.

Quadruplicity brings together the signs and how well they manage ideas and their goals. Cardinal signs want to push new ideas, new territory, and goals forward. Depending on their element, this can be expressed in fairly different ways. Aries is a strong leader who wants to help make the world manifest. Capricorn is someone who is allowing the world to reveal the honest parts of itself and to take an account of hibernation. Completely different, but necessary. A fixed sign is the center of the four seasons. They know what they want, stick to it, and direct from it. They have a lot of authority, ambition, and power to them. And mutable signs come in more with a gentleness, a flexible nature, and gregariousness.

Triplicity has to do with the sign's element and what other signs match it. Earth signs are more practical, they are bound to their senses, and they have the capacity to break down the thick amount of material density we all deal with. They understand the material world. Fire signs are about the will. They are passionate about making things happen. They are the sign of manifestation. Water signs are about emotions. They are about how things feel, about the heart, energy, and absorbing and communicating with energy. They have a certain telepathic way with energy that's pure and refined. Wind signs are all about intelligence. They are constantly thinking. They have to translate their thoughts back into energy in order to make sense of it for other signs. They think highly in words and are a little more detached because they are such highly objective problem solvers. They do have intense emotions, as do all 12 signs.


Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn

Fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius

Mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces


Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Wind signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Water: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces


Yang: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius

Yin: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces

With yin and yang, I would say that some of these signs follow this traditionally, where others can exude masculine or feminine energy instead. For instance, Aquarius is so close to the last sign, and there a gentleness that becomes more apparent as we move down the line from Aries to Pisces.... that this makes Aquarius seem feminine rather than masculine. Scorpio has such a diverse range of emotions and sexuality that it often comes off more masculine than feminine. Gemini as the dual twin can often feel genderless or whatever it wants.

Final Comments

Conflict: they can get confused about what to do next. Aries may throw temper tantrums, and Gemini is not going to understand why they are doing this. Gemini may respond to this in a detached manner. These two will feed each other mentally, they'll enjoy each other's company, and they come off youthful, ideal, and fun.

Both if they are not happy have a tendency to suddenly just leave.

Happiness is a key.

      Hi! I was reading this article because i wanted to see how is it that geminis and aries can be good friends, etc. As a gemini i should fall into this but i honeslty cannot stand aries. All of them. I get confused as a Scorpio alot more than what i am, a gemini. All aries are selfish. I know im being biased, based off my own experiences. However, after having family, friends of both sexes, and meeting strangers, i cant with them. They are so stubborn and all knowing. They are manipulative and deceiving. After what I've been through with arie people, i steer clear of them.
