Can Gemini and Capricorn Get Along and Date Successfully?
Earth Cardinal Air Mutable
The Goat and The Twin: Gemini and Capricorn
Gemini’s dual airiness and mutability are a strong contrast to Capricorn's earthiness and cardinality. Capricorn cannot understand Gemini, especially after they have had an explanation of the mutable multiple twins. Gemini’s critics cannot do what Gemini does, so, they discount it as being frivolous, or silly or as the Nuns said about Maria in The Sound of Music: “a flibbertygibbet, a will of the wisp, a cloud..” Then there’s the resolving line: “How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?”
The Capricorn does not need to understand Gemini in its earthy practical world, unless of course, it wants to get along, unless it has a coupling relationship planned. The whole question then is Capricorn’s understanding and appreciation of Gemini. Gemini understands Capricorn already. Gemini can come the closest to pure objectivity. So, it all depends upon Capricorn. Of course, Gemini will have to be attracted to the Goat. We are assuming that. Capricorn’s elegant, somewhat self-serving sense of lordship and authority will care about Gemini for some purpose of its own. Like the Scorpio’s attraction to Gemini, it’s mysterious but transcendent. Astrology would declare that this is most likely karmic or deeply psychic and thus would defy easy explanation.
When signs differ this much, I refer to the “transportation and transformation” reference. The two are together to “be taken to a new place, and be changed in a new way.” Life’s purpose is to bring us to new states that we can grow from. These two could, through their almost incomprehensible match, bring love, happiness, and joy to each other and their family as they explored new ways of understanding, not only each other, but in actuality, themselves. This is truly positive.
If they were in a genuine relationship of mutual attraction, Gemini and Capricorn could possibly have a high romance factor. Putting a turn of intrigue on it, they could see in each other, other worlds that they cannot visit but through their partner. This could mean that their love would be always new.
Capricorn’s befuddlement with Gemini might lead to some high volume encounters, but Capricorn’s dignity and historic self-containment would not let things get too loud or uncontrolled. If they had serious encounters, they would probably surround letting each other be themselves. Mercury could lead the Saturn-ruled Goat where it might learn something, but for the sake of peace in conflict, a little privacy and complete solitude at the relationship level might do them well.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" These two would probably end up seeking a little quietude and boredom. Since Cap’s inner schedule is always being updated, and the Twin’s brain is alive with high amp activity, they might seek out quiet nights on the veranda.
Keep Up the Interest Graph
Capricorn tends to feel that their inner realm is a fairly satisfying place to be; they might think that the Gemini is supposed to always adapt to them. This could be a trap that the Goat might get its foot caught in. Taking one another for granted is a human trait and one that Capricorn could fall into. Gemini would want to always have new interest. The Twin should be informed that the Capricorn cares about this.
Seven Year Itchiness
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Capricorn Cardinality makes them act, but its conservative restraint would probably make them hesitate. Capricorn is not going to mess up what they have invested in. Gemini is airborne continuously and is always coming into contact with the outer world, just look at its mileage charts. Gemini is not bound by morality, but they do not relish complicating their lives.
Compatibility Rating: 65% Positive Long Term—50% Short Term. Capricorn’s enchantment with Gemini would be the driving factor here. Gemini would be happy to be in love with such a secure and comforting person. If that characterization describes their match, it could last. Otherwise, this most unusual match has an unlikeliness about it.
