This is a wonderful combination for compatibility. The intellectual rapport is excellent and these two individuals tend to get along well. In a romantic pairing, this may not be a very passionate or intense combination, though it should be intellectually stimulating and harmonious. Gemini and Aquarius may part ways to pursue other interests or because the romantic connection lacks depth, but it is more likely to be an amicable parting than a hostile one. If these two do live together or get married, their relationship will probably resemble a close friendship rather than a stormy romance.
One of the most positive aspects of the Gemini-Aquarius match is that both individuals value their freedom and independence. Neither has a tendency to be jealous or possessive, so they don’t hold one another back. Although they can have a lot of fun together, they can also have fun with other friends and pursue their own interests without upsetting each another. Also, both signs tend to become bored if things grow routine, so neither is likely to let this happen. Additional points in favor of this relationship are that Aquarius is better able to tolerate Gemini’s changeability than those of most other signs, and Gemini is less likely to be bothered by Aquarius’s emotional detachment. Both signs tend to be cerebral rather than emotional, so they are more likely to connect based on thoughts than feelings.
Both Gemini and Aquarius are full of surprises, which keeps things interesting. They welcome the unexpected and cope well with change. Conversations tend to be fascinating, and these two can expand one another’s horizons, introducing each other to new ideas and experiences. Both tend to be curious and sociable, and they share a love of novelty that causes them to chase new experiences and ideologies (unfortunately, this can pull them apart if their interests diverge too much). The key to success for this match will be shared interests, friendships, and viewpoints. Gemini’s views are more flexible than those of Aquarius (Aquarius tends have fixed opinions and be very stubborn about changing them), so Gemini is more likely to compromise.
Aquarians enjoy a good debate, but they are not inclined to get emotional about it, and although Geminis may stir things up a little from time to time, they don’t usually start major battles within their relationships, so severe clashes between these two are unlikely. If fights do occur, both signs tend to get over things quickly because neither is particularly sensitive or prone to holding grudges. If Gemini and Aquarius do part ways, they are more likely to drift apart while remaining friends (or at least on friendly terms) than to burst apart in an explosion of mutual rage.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
