How to Know If a Gemini Likes You
How can you tell if a Gemini likes you? Honestly, it should be easy. Geminis express themselves verbally very well, but they can also express their love through their actions. You should feel like a Gemini is focused intently on you. The tricky part might be that Geminis are social, so you might not know if you are special to them or if you are being treated the same as everyone else.
Geminis are contagiously happy-go-lucky souls—for the most part. They like to keep things light rather than dark and heavy like a Scorpio. This is someone who will talk to you extensively. They don't like to show too much emotion at first, but if they are willing to go deeper and open up, then that's a clear sign they have feelings for you. If they start saying they like you and open up about their feelings, this is a clear indicator that you are special to them.
It's a plus if they are telling you about themselves and want to share certain experiences with you. Also, if they want to pick you as their adventure buddy and partner in crime, then they are interested in your company and spending more time with you. If they really like you, they will focus their all-over-the-place, air-sign energy on you. They want to treat you with a bit more seriousness and commitment, which can come as a surprise to them. Gemini likes to bounce from idea to idea and person to person before committing. However, they move with more intention when they find someone who they feel is worth the effort.
Here is the thing about air signs: They are generally considered the geniuses of the zodiac and spend a great deal of time focusing on ideas. They have intense emotions, but they are typically guarded. It can feel heavy and overwhelming for them to be emotional, and they easily feel vulnerable. After trying to be attached to someone emotionally, heartbreak is especially difficult for air signs. They will feel it with their whole being. Air signs connect with people who have a great deal of mental activity, so don't be surprised if an air sign takes a while to open up. If they are trying to rush through things, then they are probably not trying to give you the care you deserve and are not paying enough attention to the course of the relationship.

End of Spring, draws to Summer Solstice
Who Is Gemini?
What exactly is a Gemini, and where does it get its energy?
The Gemini is the 3rd sign of the zodiac. It comes after the frenetic energy of Aries and Taurus who start off the zodiac year. Aries comes after the cold, clearing the canvas of winter. As a fire sign, they help spring come into season. They are full of storms, new life, and changes in temperature from the cold days of winter to the warmth of spring. Aries, as a cardinal sign, is all about moving around and shaking up the scene.
The second born child of the zodiac, Taurus, feels like it needs to compete with Aries to harbor life during the spring. Taurus takes care of the animals and plants, much like Adam in the Bible. Taurus is a gardener, in-tune with their senses, and is a genius in their own right—they somehow manage to care for all the creatures left behind in Aries' quick and frenetic wake. Then, we come to Gemini.
Gemini experiences life after spring. It doesn't need to focus so much on gardening or managing. It is a time of celebration when life has already established itself. The twins, both male and female, can exist together in the garden. Gemini is the time of year when people get married, graduate, and take vacations. The wild weather of the previous two seasons—snow, hail, tornadoes, hot days, and cold days—calms down during Gemini season. We generally don't see snow in May, we generally don't see below 30-degree temperatures, unless of course, you live in the northern most part of the planet.
Note: Western astrology does tend to favor the northern hemisphere as opposed to the southern hemisphere, where the seasons occur in reverse.
What Are Common Gemini Traits?
Gemini has a natural, bubbly affinity for life. They like to keep things positive, healthy, and egalitarian. As they grow and mature, they want to be more humble and open-minded. Gemini can run into problems when they are young and believe passionately they are right about something with their tunnel-like focus. They are too stubborn and limit their exposure to fresh and new ideas or alternate perspectives.
As the twin sign, a Gemini experiences duality. Gemini wants to be open to the world and wants fairness and equality for all. But sometimes, Gemini needs to step away from the crowd; otherwise, they brood and become moody. They need their independence or else they will become a chameleon and blend in with everyone else.
This can even come up in a healthy relationship. Gemini will want to emotionally comfort their partner by mirroring what they do at both a conscious and an unconscious level. It is important to encourage a Gemini to show their true colors—if they only share your interests, one day they'll have a mental breakdown when they realize that they don't know themselves.
How a Gemini Flirts
Gemini will likely converse with you about a number of topics before getting into the heaviness of emotion. They may look to touching you and giving you affection before sorting through their emotions and putting their thoughts, speech, and feelings together. This is normal for a Gemini, who feels vulnerable when opening up deeper matters of the heart. They like to be introspective and play with ideas before sharing them. Gemini likes to flirt and keep things light before committing. Commitment should come up naturally rather than be forced or twisted into action. Gemini needs room to consider its heart, what it wants to do, and a number of other important goals.
You can expect long texts from a Gemini. They like to have constant contact, and they're good at it. They like to dabble in new things—they can change their direction in life frequently because they have so much going on in their heads. They are guided by Mercury—the household of communication and mobility. They like to experience the world and be spontaneous, fun, and conversational.
Occasionally, you may have to tell them it is okay to sit in silence. They are talkative, and if it's not coming out of their mouth, their loquaciousness is happening inside their head.

How Gemini Expresses Their Emotions
They like to keep things light, fresh, and they have to have open communication, be it verbal, written, or even musical—they always need some fresh ideas running through their heads. With their sweetness and lightness, they can be overwhelmed by their feelings during romantic relationships. It can be uncomfortable for them to be unable to find the right words to express what they feel.
This could be made much worse if they are dating a water sign who wants to confront heavy topics up front. Gemini needs its space while also enjoying connection and conversation with their partner. They want to be able to do their own thing, and then enjoy their time with you. They have a great sense of humor. They do not like manipulation or passive-aggression, nor do they like to be tied down.
Gemini wants to make sure that their partner isn't depending on them for emotional validation. Gemini's biggest fear is that they don't have emotional depth—but to be honest, it's absolutely there, and they are much more open and vulnerable than other signs. Air signs are guarded for a reason. Don't accuse them of being shallow—rather, help them to put words to their feelings. This is how you can help them overcome this obstacle and help them to grow. If they are conveying their innermost feelings to you, then it's a big deal.

I've been married to my husband for 25 years!! He is a libra and I'm a Gemini, he is by far the most honest, loving, sincere, handsome, adorable, honerable man I know and love. He makes me be far a better person every day!!!
Andrea Lawrence (author) from Chicago on October 28, 2019:
The age difference is wild and could create problems. Please tell me you're both adults! Leo and Gemini are both adventurous and kind of out there, so they could overcome an almost quarter century of difference. But you two may be on completely different pages at this time due to age. Would depend on how financially stable the both of you are.

I couldn't see any signs with gemini other than Pisces. Do you know why..? I'm in love with a gemini more than 15 years. Still I'm deeply madly truly love him. My school time crush. We became best friends. He loves me too. But we couldn't tell each other.. By fearing, nervousness.. We both have another lovers at that time. But my heart always loved my best friend. I married the same guy that I loved. And my best friend loved another one. Before he tried many times to tell me that he loves me n wanna marry me. I understood that. But.. i couldn't break my promise with the guy that I'm in love with.. years passed.. we continued our friendship. One day I found that my husband cheated me. I told everything to my best friend. I was depressed. But He stood up with me in all my difficult times.he loves me when I couldn't love myself. I could say he gave a new life. A reason to live. We went out together for a date. Finally we could share our love which is not shown for years in a day.. That day only we understood that how much we loved each other. He cried at the end of the day. Me too... finally I understood that he also loved me like I did secretly. I forgave my husband. Now he is not at all in my mind. I dated my best friend for the 5th time. Still it feels fresh. My love for him will never fade away. He is my soul mate. I couldn't say how much I love him.. deeply deeply...

All combinations in the zodiac are possible, it depends on the formula you use for the relationship. Gemini and Libra do naturally get along. The Scorpio aspects may elude Gemini. Scorpio can be too serious and dark for Gemini who is more whimsical.

Are Gemini and Sagittarius a good match
Opa on January 24, 2019:
I’m currently talking to a Gemini male and I’m not sure how he feels about me. He comes to pick me up and go out places (it’s about a 20 minute drive) He doesn’t really have a lot of time to text me back. He’s busy with work, school, working out and friends. I completely understand. He does text me when he gets the opportunity and he’s extremely honest with me. He’s also very shuveris, he calls me cute all the time. I remember having a conversation with him. It was about “remembering we have time”, he believes life is to short. I agreed with him but I also told him sometimes you have to take a breath and actually take a minute to marvel at the beauty of life it’s self. Not just try and do a million things without enjoying it. He looked like he wanted to say something and I asked what’s wrong and he just kisses me and said I’m so cute. I honestly have no idea what he ment by that. We are also sexual active (it’s great sex) but how do I know that I’m not just another hook up for him? He did tell me ahead of time that he wasn’t seeing anyone else. Can I trust him?
