Love Horoscopes: Zodiac Sign Compatibility For Gemini And Scorpio

For a Gemini and a Scorpio, their differences can cause conflict or lead to a fiery, passionate and exciting romantic relationship.

Opposites really do attract in the case of Gemini and Scorpio, which makes for a passionate, and at times tumultuous, relationship.

In a partnership between a Gemini (May 21 to June 21) and a Scorpio (October 24 to November 21), acceptance and compromise are essential. These signs are polar opposites in several fundamental ways, which may hinder their ability to relate to each other as well as cause friction in the relationship. Gemini is flirtatious and takes life and love more lightly than Scorpio. Scorpio, on the other hand, approaches love with an intensity that requires more commitment and intimacy than Gemini is prepared to give. Scorpio can be possessive and is likely to become jealous of Gemini's flirtatious ways. Gemini needs space, and doesn't like feeling pressured into commitment. Scorpio must learn to back off a little, and in time Gemini will make their feelings known. It is essential that Scorpio not pressure Gemini into a commitment, because Gemini won't pretend to feel something they don't, and they will flee quickly if they feel they're being forced into something they're not ready for.

First impressions can be deceiving for these two, as they may initially be unable to connect on any level. Scorpio, who is intense, secretive and focused, may see Gemini as superficial and flighty. Loyal Scorpio will also likely be offended by Gemini's notoriously flirtatious personality. Gemini is talkative and outgoing, and may feel overwhelmed by Scorpio's intensity and need for intimacy. This pairing is never dull, and the many differences between these signs lead to both passion and conflict. Gemini loves to debate, and because these two signs may often be at odds with each other, arguments may be frequent. However, their differences also lead to a fiery relationship where sparks fly and anything can happen.

One strength of this relationship is their compatible ruling planets. Gemini is governed by Mercury, ruler of communication, and Scorpio is governed by Mars, ruler of passion, and Pluto, ruler of power. For Scorpio, intimacy, both sexual and emotional, is a major concern and they need frequent reassurance that their partner is as committed to the relationship as they are. Fortunately, Mercury's influence gives Gemini excellent communication skills, which ensures they will have no trouble making their feelings for Scorpio clear. These two will always understand exactly where they stand with each other.

If these two signs make an effort to learn from each other, they can draw on each other's strengths and find a balance for their own weaknesses. Gemini, a mutable sign, often does things on a whim, but Scorpio, a fixed sign, always has a plan. Scorpio can help Gemini become more focused, and encourage them to finish one project before launching a new one. In return, Gemini can help Scorpio learn to let go and move on to something else when things don't work out.

Gemini is more intellectually motivated than Scorpio, and bases their decisions on reason and logic. Scorpio, in contrast, trusts instinct above all else. They must learn to reconcile their differing approaches to life if they hope to have a long-lasting relationship. If they don't, misunderstandings and arguments may impede their efforts at making the partnership work. However, because neither sign gives up easily, they have what it takes to work through their differences and achieve a strong and rewarding relationship.

These two signs have one of the more challenging partnerships in the zodiac, but that doesn't mean they can't be happy together. In fact, because they are so different, they have the opportunity to learn from each other and be inspired to explore new ways of thinking and living. Both signs love to take chances, so while they may not always see eye-to-eye, their life together will always be full of adventure.
