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.

Positive Postulate

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.

Romance Recommendation

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.

Conflict Quotient

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.

Peace Parlay

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.

Questions & Answers

  • What will happen if Gemini falls in love with Capricorn?

    Gemini would be cute and happy. Cap could get bored. Cap should admire Gem and fall in love with Gem's humor and fun.

  • What gifts do Gemini like the best?

    Gifts? They like easy manners, charm, quickness of thought, a ready smile, ability to dance. Changeable but sweet. Don't be hard-headed.

  • Can a capricorn and a cancer have compatibility?

    Both serious and hard workers. Capricorn can't intimidate Cancer. Looking for love, but everything else is good.

      I am a capricorn woman, born on the 7th on January my birthchart has a lot of the signs Gemini would be totally compatible with if I was honest i don't represent the typical Capricorn I'd say I'm more of a Leo really... I am open about sex I am certainly not "stiff" or "reserved" when it comes to the bedroom.. And my Gemini partner would say the same so I wouldn't base compatibility straight of sun signs to get more accurate feedback I'd look at my birthchart first to see.. Because not all capricorns are the same there are strictly Capricorns and there are ones that do have a combination of signs in their chart which enable them to get on with near enough anyone.

      I met a cap man online and my bad , we both liked each other. Things didn't work out, we had a communication break down somewhere. I'm too sensitive and emotional for a gemini and he isn't.

      A Cap man can seeme to be very strong and authoritative. It is easy to see your enchantment. I would recommend you get personal reading or counseling.

      Dear JazmineA:

      You have summed up in real life what I would characterize as a classic Cap/Gem relationship with the man being the Cap and woman being the Gem. OK, so now we have accepted the lay of the land, the way its going, and way it could go. I will speak idealistically of both signs.

      GEM woman can really benefit from a CAP guy. They always tend to be employed. They are pretty straight, reliable and can be counted on. The problem with a critical Cap is that a Gem woman can seem like a "flibberty gibbet" as I say in my article. While he is being critical and sarcastic however, he is pushing away what could be a wonderful partner. A Gem woman can hardly be anything but HERSELF, so you have to love a Gem woman. You know what I she is.

      Cap always has a problem with wishing their loved ones would be quiet, behave, don't act nutty. Your Cap guy has to see an inherent virtue in you being with him. If down inside he thinks your fun and cute, but does not really love you, then you have to analyze that.

      If you don't see the virtue in him JUST BEING A CAP, then you also have to analyze that. A Cap Man is NOT going to do much ADAPTING. I would pose that the Gem has to do more adapting. All the fighting and snapping at each other is both of you just "being yourselves". Somebody has to be more conscious, bigger, more mature. Somebody has to care about the long term nature of this relationship.

      If all you two want to do is have fun as long as you can tolerate each other, then I would guess that that won't lead to permanency. Blessings on both of you whatever you decide to do. Advice: Stop yelling at each other. A Cap looks down at people who yell at them. A Gem can't believe they are being yelled at. For both its not good. Blessings.

      I am a Gemini woman and he is a Cap man. I have been dating him for 1 year and a half and its literally like a roller coaster. One day we can be calm with each other, talking about everything that comes in mind and the next it can be throwing harmful words at each other and the next just gripping on each other by thin thread simply because in the end We love each other. I admire him because of how comfortable I am with him, he accepts me for who i am, and hes stable very loyal, and faithful. Me on the other hand, very communicative, on the move, constantly changing which worrys my cap man. What I can say, is that this relationship is not easy at all. It takes both to actually work. I am thinking of a long run for both us, i see a future in us. But again, we both view life differently. This relationship, to me as a gemini has aspired me, completely as a person. Hes taught me to slow down, be a little more stable, motivated me to reach my goals, etc. On the other hand, i comfort him, we have fun , play around laugh always trying to do the opposite of boredom. Its a pro because we need each other in what we fail at. So we help each other like bestfriends. This relationship is great, very loving. But again, takes both to work it out!

      The key to Gemini, the one that makes them mysteriously effective with all signs is that they are not driven inside by the need for power. All other signs that are "befuddled" by Gemini - Capricorn, Scorpio, Leo, Sag, etc. think there is a big power need in their core. This give them a Sherlock Holmes kind of spirit. They are here, then they are there. Not indestructible. Just Tinkerbelle.

      The only sign which is more realistic then Capricorn is Gemini! They are buffled because we frighten them with our real common sence which is greater then theirs!

      i am a capricorn and of course the gemini woman seduced me, at first all we had in common was sex, then i got to know her and she was very much like me, except she over thought situations and was a bit bi-polar. but geminis get bored easily and from my experience all they have that is compatible with capricorns is sex.

      Capricorn takes itself so seriously, all the time, about every topic from the weather to the next election, and Gemini can throw electric shots out for the practice. The arguments are endless, unless the Gemini decides to get humble and enjoy all that Capricorn truly is otherwise.

      Capricorn (women) gemini (male) don't really get along unless they truly understand each other. They argue to much

      I'm a Gemini woman and I have been in a reltionship with a Capricorn man for 19 years. I was 16 when I met him. What can I say? It has never been what I wanted it to be, BUT, it hasn't been bad, either. Just very, very different. And difficult, although rewarding in many ways. It's just like you say, I am happy to be in love with such a secure and comforting person.

      Do you think that a Capricorn sun/venus in Aquarius (female) would work out with a Gemini sun/ Venus in Aries(male)?
