Learn about our Editorial Process Updated on 01/20/19 Gemini and Aquarius are both free thinkers that need a lot of leeway in love. A whirl of stimulating activities gets the ball rolling since these two are curiosity seekers. When they come together, it's a meeting of two bright minds, and that's where the seeds of love begin to grow. Nothing is too taboo for Aquarius, and Gemini is flexible enough to try anything once. This leads to lots of experimentation, on dates and in the bedroom. Aquarius is drawn to the unconventional and accepts Gemini's restless and inconstant nature. And Gemini is charmed by the wholly original ideas that spill forth from Aquarius. Both signs like to go their own way, so neither one takes it personally. They understand the need for intellectual independence and will have lots of separate friends. The Love Glue The Aquarius-Gemini relationship has long-term potential since there's always more to learn and talk about. As a sign known to calm the mentally unstable, Aquarius can be soothing to the Gemini nerves. Gemini may not always understand why Aquarius gets stuck on one idea to the point of obsession, but they will respect their partner's mental focus. Aquarius shows by example how Gemini can harness all of their brain power. There is not a lot of heavy emotion here, which makes it possible for them to be friends first. Long after the lust phase is over, these two are inspired companions—and that's a foundation for enduring love. It's the glue that holds these signs together. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus (the modern ruler) and known for sudden moves. Gemini also has an erratic rhythm to its nature and is quick to change. A bond between them can break as suddenly as it forms. Both signs have an escape hatch that they make use of when things get too claustrophobic. Collaboration and Purpose For staying power, it helps for Gemini and Aquarius to have a shared purpose, such as raising children or cultivating a passion. The word "brainstorming" comes to mind—each sign helps the other fully conceptualize their plans. Is it all talk and no walk? This will depend on other elements, like earth, in the birth chart. Is there a cool air here, with no feeling? Look to the water element or areas of emotional compatibility. Although both signs have big friend circles, they will want to spend quality time with their beloved to make them feel special. Each one knows their main engagement is the world of ideas, and this makes them philosophical about endings. Whether they come together for a season or a lifetime, they both know that life goes on. Gemini and Aquarius are an excellent match with infinite room for growth. Pros and Cons On the positive side, both signs are friendly and curious; they enjoy learning and setting trends. Their similar emotional life makes them stable partners—if they want to be. On the negative side, Gemini and Aquarius can sometimes be flighty; their "easy come, easy go" attitude makes it difficult to form attachments, and they need time to settle down. Honesty and loyalty are essential in this relationship, as duplicity breeds mistrust. Gemini and Aquarius may have very different personalities, but common purpose holds them together. If they can keep their fickleness under control, they can become lifelong partners.
