Gemini and Cancer compatibility… not something I want to witness. Your breezy Air will get lost and maybe even drown under Cancer’s deep, complex ocean of emotions. You can try this relationship, but the stars are telling you not to bother, it will only cause stress and irritation.
Gemini lives in duality, and is also sometimes called the adolescent of the zodiac. You take life by the horns and live it to the fullest, not worrying about the consequences. You are also bad with emotions, much like a baffled teenager, and as a result you tend not to bother with feelings.
On the other hand, let us consider the Cancer. Cancer will be attracted to your spontaneity and refined social skills, you are able to handle 20 conversations at once and feel perfectly happy with it. This Crab, though, is so much different than you. She has a depth of feeling and emotion, and often is as baffled as you are about it. Crabs deal with a lot of mood changes, usually sulky and unhappy about something they can’t understand.
Cancer won’t show her feelings at first, she will keep them concealed under an ocean of calm, waiting for the right moment to explode into dramatic theatrics (often about a silly little thing like you forgetting to lock the door or leaving a dirty dish laying around.) And, whenever these arguments happen, every single little thing you have ever done to your partner will be dragged up, no matter how silly or ill-conceived they are. Get ready to hear about how you insulted your Cancer last month by staying out late, or some other such silly contrived reasoning.
You are fast and straightforward, not bothering with tact or subtlety. Your Crab is so much different than you, you will need to be patient in order to open her shell and understand her fully. She is slow, sensitive, and prefers to stay at home instead of going out every night like you, dear Gemini. It will remind you of the times when you were an adolescent (well, you still are one) and you came home late at night to your dad waiting for you… except now it’s your partner!
You will need to slow yourself down if you are very attached to Cancer. Cancer appreciates praise and compliments, faithfulness and devotion. If you can sit and think logically about why your Cancer is upset, there is usually a simple way to fix it. But don’t try to drag your Crab out of her shell before she is ready! Cancer is notorious for staying bundled up until she is good and ready to come out.
However, things are not all that bad. Crabs make very good homemakers; a department you are lacking in. They are very good at making money and conserving it, something you have come to appreciate much considering you are so bad at it. Crabs are sensual and deep lovers, they take the art of making love very seriously and consider it just that… an art form. They will love you deeply if you allow them to open up, and all it takes is to slow down and let it. Of course, this is easier said than done, especially for a spontaneous Gemini.
This relationship will consume all of your time and commitments. And, you will have to learn to feel and have real emotions. If you really love your partner, though, I suppose anything is possible.
