Opposites Attract: Gemini + Sagittarius
Polar opposites Gemini and Sagittarius have just the right amount of push and pull. They have a great connection because they are both mutable signs. According to Western astrology, air and fire signs have higher compatibility compared to other pairings, such as air or fire signs with earth or water signs.
Both Gemini and Sagittarius are closing signs. Gemini beckons with the final rush of spring and hands it off to Cancer, while Sagittarius welcomes the final days of fall and hands it off to Capricorn.
Gemini Cares Deeply About Others
Gemini is a master of communication. They are known for understanding words, how language works, and are good at networking. They are a highly egalitarian sign, but they can run into problems with their own duality. They want everyone to be treated fairly, equally, and reasonably—but from trying so hard to understand others, they forget to check in with themselves and see who they are.
Gemini's season is a wonderful time of year. It comes right after the frenetic life-giving energy of Aries and Taurus. They see the flowers, bees, and trees for what they are rather than the process that these species go through. Sometimes Gemini can take this beauty for granted, but that's a big part of their genius.
Gemini weather varies, but it is generally not as variable as Aries and Taurus seasons. Those two deal with a mix of cold and hot weather patterns that produce strong winds, tornadoes, rain, hail, snow, and earthquakes. By the time Gemini season comes around, the snow has stopped and people are in celebration mode. They want to graduate from school, get married, and take vacations. As Gemini progresses, it gets warmer and warmer until it reaches the summer solstice, which brings in Cancer and all its emotions.
Sagittarius Is a Strong Romantic
Sagittarius is a warm and complex personality. They can seem both youthful and sagacious—like your grandpa. They can be the teacher, the guru, and the guide, but they also have the spirit of the horse and want to run wild and free.
Sagittarius comes after the sexually-charged and mysterious Scorpio. Unlike Scorpio, Sagittarius has a more relaxed energy, and they have a desire to bring people together to celebrate. Their season blends with the holiday season and the buildup to Christmas. This is when you celebrate Thanksgiving and go to Christmas parties, as well as other social gatherings. These seasons come with a mix of genuine connection and fake, artificial, commercial connection.
Sagittarius, as you can see, can be pulled in several different directions at once, but they have the ability to wade through the mire and focus on their target. This sign wants people to feel accomplished. They are ardent, playful, and paradoxical in nature. They are a fire sign, but are so close to the end of the year that they don't have as much power and ego dominance as Aries or Leo. Sagittarius appreciates both spontaneity and ambition. They want to grow with a partner while also having plenty of room to be free.

Gemini & Sagittarius Are Opposite Signs With Complementary Perspectives
In many ways, these two signs will get each other. They both come from times of celebration—they both celebrate positivity and welcome change. They want people who are excitable.
They also have similar fears. Sagittarius doesn't want to feel trapped and Gemini has imposter syndrome. Neither of these signs want a lot of validation or like feeling caged. They don't want to be bored—they don't want to be with someone who has no brains.
These two have reverse energies. Over time, a Gemini heats up more and more until it descends. Overtime Sagittarius grows colder and colder until the season comes to a close. Gemini comes from a youthful place of celebration—a time when people graduate, get married, or get a new job. Sagittarius is a celebration of family, accomplishments, and traditions. Gemini is forward-thinking, whereas Sagittarius is retrospective.
Both are notorious for struggling to commit. This is partly because their seasons are about freedom rather than having a fixed identity. They both love ideas and people. Sagittarius tries to see the big picture; they have that fire-sign ego that makes them ambitious, while Gemini focuses on humility. That guidance is what gives them their genius. If the two can actually commit to each other, the world will become their oyster. The two of them naturally like each other, but they each have so many focuses that they're hard to pin it down, especially since neither has a stubborn personality. They want to avoid stubbornness. They both like leaving their future open, but this can hurt them in the long run.
An Unpredictable but Satisfying Pair
These two will constantly be shifting. They'll be unpredictable yet emotionally satisfying. Together they have the composite energy of Libra, which helps them foster harmony, fairness, and warmth. This can help them be more romantic with each other while achieving their goals. Gemini needs humility; Sagittarius needs freedom. These two will open doors for each other. They know and respect that the other needs space.
In a way, polar opposite zodiac signs can feel like soulmates. People in a partner sign relationship usually don't feel like they have to spend as much time on dealing with each other. There is potential for massive heartache and frustration, so you need to be in a healthy spot before you get into a relationship no matter what. You have to figure out yourself before you try to understand a new partner.
Gemini and Sagittarius are quick talkers and thinkers, so they'll enjoy this exchange of energies that is full of revelations and patterns. Gemini's youthful energy makes them easily excitable. Sagittarius has an older soul, but still has a youthful streak. Sagittarius somehow carries this with them; they have found that wisdom brings them back to a state of innocence. Sagittarius will enjoy observing Gemini's innocence.
Gemini is a master at mirroring others to better understand them. Tapping into Sagittarius' energy will help them see how they mirror each other. A partner gives Gemini momentum, so it can be fascinating to talk to others and see what realizations they come to.
These Two Make a Natural Match
Gemini and Sagittarius want to feel intellectually satisfied. They can talk, listen, and think for hours on end, each drawing different conclusions and experiences. Partner signs naturally compliment us because they have different energies. The disparities we have with ourselves are resolved by the other person. In this case, air's curiosity gets fulfilled by fire's manifestation. Sometimes these energies are not developed enough to feel a resonance. It can also be powerful, and difficult to maintain as people grow, shift, change, and develop.
The nice thing about dating an opposite sign is you'll both feel a strong sense of connection even though the two of you have different interests. This ensures that the two of you are wasting too much time on certain tasks and neglecting other areas of your relationship and household. Gemini and Sagittarius will be able to give each other the space they crave while also connecting romantically.
For all their knowledge and open-mindedness, Gemini and Sagittarius need to be careful not to project their opinions onto each other. Sagittarius can get addicted to their religious beliefs, thinking they have figured it all out. Gemini needs to focus on humility rather than highfalutin ideas. Love and kindness will help. Make sure you are not limiting yourself by thinking you are always right. Be flexible, malleable, and considerate.
Gemini helps to clear bias and judgment in order to open communication. Sagittarius is here to honor different perspectives. Without proper education, Sagittarius can become dogmatic. Together, these two can bring out the best in each other and relax their perspectives. Together, they can come to understand more profound things.
Sagittarius is meant to inspire others, and Gemini is able to spot patterns, articulate new discoveries, and help start projects. Gemini wants to help Sagittarius discover their inner child. Sagittarius can often feel clogged, and Gemini helps them relax. Gemini can feel cold and disconnected, and Sagittarius can help them overcome their rut; otherwise, Gemini will run into obstacles that they have trouble overcoming alone. These two naturally accept and complement each other.

The relationship between a Sagittarius and a Gemini will always be love OR hate, no inbetween. As a Sagittarius-sun and Gemini-rising (Yeah, got the best of both MUTABLE worlds), the people that I found to be most "attractive" are always either Aries or Gemini. BUT, the most despicable to me (i.e, Trump, Kanye West) are also Gemini, too. The latter explains a lot between Taylor-Kanye's long-running feud.

gemini is way more flexible ,
also gemini can see things from different angles .
down side , with a gemini you never know their next step.
sag yes .
sag is more honest more serious has more weight to it .. has indeed a older soul but freaks out when feels ignored.
gemini does not care, gemini had a mental advantage over all the other zodiacs wich is : hello world , fuck you .
they just don,t say it .
they are two in one and often their live 6 people in them so they don,t need people that bad.
sag is the logical thinker .
genini the sly one .
they can be great together because they both can equally debate over things other people cannot see .

I really love how you go into so much depth comparing Gem and Sag to the seasons and what is happening during the year at the time of their signs. It makes so much sense and is a unique perspective. I just have to ask... what about the people in the southern hemisphere? The seasons would not correlate with the signs...

Beautiful Relationship once Time has been put in to understand and not overpower one another! This article is so true ! I love my sag man and he loves his gem! Gemini can lead the way so I suggest being more understanding and less argumentive trust me sagg will follow nd this will create harmony! Keep it fresh never force committment and control your twins. Be your secure self and remember that a sag will not be with you if he didnt want to! They may flirt but most are loyal to us twins when they actually committ. Give him
Freedom just like you need it! Its so amazing!! Dont give up on your sag man I promise this will be a love worth fighting for!!

There is always a chance. But don't focus too much on these chances. Go after the best version of yourself. Life is too short to waste it waiting.
prabitha on November 17, 2017:
thank u for your advice... I will try to follow...but pls say is there any chance that he could come back to me??
Andrea Lawrence (author) from Chicago on November 16, 2017:
I think you need to focus on yourself and forget this person. He has moved on with someone else. It sounds like he was playing with your heart and seeing other girls. That's not worth your time. Find someone who really cares about you.
prabitha on November 12, 2017:
I am a sag… I m in love with a gemini man for 1 and a half years..we shared our love so well…we took care of each other extraordinarily ..fights do arise when he spends time with other girls.. he said he is in love with another girl because of me being over possessive with him… I regretted and pleaded for his forgiveness… he was not in touch with me for 3 months later about 50 days back he said he is now committed with the other girl who is a capricon and asked me to leave him … the capricon girl with whom he is now in a relationship broke up with her ex-boyfriend (cancer) with a 4 yrs relationship… I am not sure weather I should wait for him or move on… but the truth is I am dying inside without him… I loved him sooo much…. pls kindly someone advice me to take a right decision…
