Your compatibility clicks and clashes Where you click: Ambition is the common ground between Gemini and Capricorn , who both dream of an executive suite as a final destination. Expert networkers, you both know how to work a room and walk out with the VIP connection in your back pocket. Talkative Gemini buzzes a mile a minute while stoic Capricorn can hold silence for epic lengths of time. At last, Gemini has the wise sounding board to vet their gazillion novel ideas.
Gemini furnishes in mod, Design-Within-Reach-meets-Tokyo-anime style. Capricorn wants a mahogany desk, Buddha statue and stone slab fountain. While kids are usually a part of the master plan, Gemini wants to home school while touring the country. Capricorn wants to instill a sense of tradition and set up camp near childhood friends and family. A middle ground is difficult to reach, but if you open your minds to compromise, you can be ever-inspiring teachers for each other in the journey of life.
Your signs move at two wildly different operating speeds—which can create weird timing issues or make you a powerful duo if you play to your strengths. Grounded earth signs like stability and tend to want things to stay the same. Communicative air signs are talkers, but may not always follow through. Earth signs are doers who prefer to let their actions speak louder than their words.
Some measure of routine and consistency will have to be followed—even if the air sign abhors tradition.
The air partner may not get the spontaneity and surprises that keep them interested. Or, the dizzying changes can leave the earth sign feeling destabilized and anxious, unable to plan ahead without feeling sabotaged from left field. So, how can you strike a balance? You work together best when the air sign brings exciting ideas to the table and the earth sign builds them into a tangible reality.
The air sign partner will also have to make a more dedicated effort to follow through on promises. Let the social air sign plan the parties, playlists, decorations, menu and other creative flourishes. And allow for some new faces to be added to the guest list. That way, the dueling needs for novelty AND consistency will both be satisfied. The earth sign will have to be more flexible and open-minded, willing to try the new ideas the air sign introduces.
Earth partners will have to learn to be more spontaneous instead of always insisting on a plan. In return, the air sign must stick to SOME part of the plan, not changing the time, showing up late or inviting random tagalongs at the last minute. There are four elements in astrology: Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind.
A love match with someone from of a different astrological element can be challenging, but also a beautiful opportunity to evolve. After all, differences push you both to grow and step outside of your own experience. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow?
Cardinal signs are initiators—they like to lead and direct and manage. Much of the time, this suits the flowy and flexible mutable sign, who may find it hard to make a decision and appreciates the extra help!
Cardinal signs have discerning tastes and an air of entitlement, which helps them gravitate toward the finer things and first-class experiences. But they can seem a bit snobbish or status-seeking for the mutable sign, who befriends everyone from the postman to the president of the company.
The cardinal sign will have to be more down-to-earth and less judgmental at times—and stop trying to make over the mutable mate!
And the mutable sign should check with the cardinal sign before RSVPing to random events or inviting strangers over for dinner. Giving gifts can be tricky in this love match—cardinals know exactly what they like and can be very hard to please. The mutable mate should get a wish list long in advance of birthdays or holidays.
When you play to your strengths, you balance each other out, each on contributing a different but complementary skill set. When things are off, you can become polarized. The yin sign can be too passive or passive-aggressive and sacrificing, while the yang sign may act domineering, aggressive and selfish.
To rebalance, the yin sign needs to work on being more open, direct and confident, while the yang sign should cultivate more patience, tolerance and sensitivity.
Your signs are quincunx , or five signs apart. This is a fascinating, complex combination that defies explanation—the original odd couple. Your bond is intense, unspoken, almost secretive in a way. The person five signs away from your sign has nothing in common with you astrologically. For one of you, the relationship will be about sex and intimacy; for the other, duty and service. You might also come together for karmic purposes—for example, to have a child or heal old wounds, perhaps even from past lives.
