    Love Compatibility between Gemini and Capricorn

    Gemini and Capricorn
    - Love Compatibility Profile :

    When Gemini and Capricorn come together in a love affair, it may be tough for them to remember why they're together at all, as the ways in which they approach the world couldn't be more opposite. If they're operating from a base of love and mutual respect, they'll be able to overcome most obstacles, but they must work hard. Gemini must have freedom to think outside the bounds; they rely on their quick wits, humor and intellectual prowess to move through life at a fast pace. Capricorn is concerned with advancement and status; they rely on following the rules and finding set, tried-and-true paths to follow toward success, no matter how long it takes. Gemini likes to cut corners; Capricorn likes to be thorough. These two Signs' challenge as a couple is to learn to maintain a similar pace so they can arrive at the same place at the same time.
    Capricorn is very unassuming and quiet, which stands out even more against Gemini's outgoing, boisterous nature. Capricorn tends to be slow, steady and stubborn while Gemini is flexible and tends to change their mind a lot. Gemini has a quick brain that sees loopholes in an instant, while Capricorn is tough to convince that taking advantage of a shortcut is a better idea than following the well-mapped course that they know will ensure their success. However, if these two can learn to understand and then implement one another's approaches, they can achieve far more than they could alone. These two Signs may make much better business partners than they do lovers.
    Gemini is ruled by the Planet Mercury (Communication), Capricorn by the Planet Saturn (Power). These Planetary influences can oppose one another. Saturn has a cold, masculine energy; it's all about perseverence and helps Capricorn keep moving ahead through all kinds of difficulties. Mercury has an androgynous energy and lends Gemini their gift of intellect and communication. Neither of these Signs will give up easily, but together they may cause one another to repress their natural emotions. Gemini already tends to skim lightly on the surface of emotions, choosing to take their love life as lightly as they take most things in life. Capricorn may dampen Gemini's enthusiastic spirit if both Signs don't take care to maintain their boundaries and allow one another to do the same.
    Gemini is an Air Sign and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Capricorn is practical, steady and efficient. They see no need to take risks if they aren't guaranteed to pay off. Gemini, on the other hand, is theoretical and analytical; they are all about risk-taking and following wherever their inventive ideas may lead. While Capricorn is buys asking, ""What good will this do as I work toward my main plan in life?"" Gemini simply moves with the flow according to no set plan.
    Gemini is a Mutable Sign and Capricorn is a Cardinal Sign. Capricorn initiates things; they like to be in control. Gemini is more flexible, generally happy to follow Capricorn's lead -- as long as they aren't forced into anything. They need to feel free to agree, disagree and choose at will, and if they begin to feel coerced, they will respond by becoming aloof and inaccessible. If these two value their relationship and want it to last, they must learn to compromise and let one another off the hook from time to time, so to speak.

    What's the best aspect of the Gemini-Capricorn relationship? They each bring their own particular qualities to the relationship. Once they allow one another to be themselves -- rather than measuring one another against impossible standards -- they can blend well to make a whole. Theirs is a challenging relationship, but if they can learn from each other it's definitely worth it!
