Gemini Women and Pisces Men

The Gemini woman and the Pisces man are both are full of contradictions. Each is almost impossible to pin down because they never stay the same for long and always seem to be in pursuit of whatever catches their fancy at the moment. From the outside looking in, this relationship can, at times, seem confidently eccentric or anxiously insane, but certainly never boring. However, there's a now you see me now you don't, chameleon quality about a Gemini/Pisces relationship that can make this pairing challenging.

The Social Butterfly

A Gemini woman is amazingly versatile, and adaptable. She is renowned for her charm and uses it to great effect. She's a social butterfly who can quickly fit into almost any social environment. She's intellectual, logical, nosey, flirty, fickle, witty, and creative, yet emotionally distant and hard to pin down. Her high-strung nature keeps her on the go and in the know. Her biggest downer is routine.

A Gemini needs a significant other who:

  • Is independent, self-sufficient, and very patient
  • Is not easily hurt
  • Will give her plenty of space and not try to control her
  • Will give her something to be excited about and keep her life interesting
  • Is sexually playful

The Master of Enchantment

There's probably no man alive who is more enchanting than a Pisces man. The Pisces man is magnetic, oh so sweet, creative, sensitive, and a hopeless romantic. He's patient, tolerant, kind, empathetic, and sees the best in everyone. However, he's slippery, easily hurt, and has an underlying melancholy that often leads to sluggishness and prolonged pity parties. His greatest fears are of being inadequate and of not being loved.

A Pisces man needs a significant other who:

  • Will accept his quiet melancholy nature
  • Won't argue or speak harshly
  • Is willing to find out what he's feeling and listen to his problems
  • Can show him a lot of love and affection
  • Can merge with him sexually on an emotional level

Gemini and Pisces Together

The Pisces man is attracted to Gemini woman's vitality, charm, wit, and positive, devil-may-care, say anything approach to life. The Gemini woman finds the Pisces man enchanting, imaginative, empathetic, and sweet beyond belief. Both have multifaced personalities that charm, intrigue, and baffle the other.

Gemini and Pisces have many surface compatibilities, which, at times, can make them seem very much alike.

Both Gemini and Pisces are:

  • Charming, easy to get along with, and well liked
  • Creative and spend a great deal of time in their heads
  • Observers of the world who have boundless imaginations
  • Open-minded, adaptable, flexible, and accepting, but prone to uncertainty
  • Need to be free to move about
  • Are easily distracted

Both are chameleons and subject to playing disappearing acts: Gemini due to the shifting thoughts and ideas, and Pisces due to the shifting emotions and feelings.

Two Chameleons

It's said that that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. When you mirror another person's pace, words, and feelings, you join them in their world and can gain an immediate rapport. One thing that can't be questioned about either a Gemini or Pisces is their ability to gain an instant rapport with others.

Gemini and Pisces are two of the four mutable signs. Mutable signs have a natural ability to mirror others and to adapt to whoever they're with and what's happening at the moment. They are the chameleons of the zodiac.

  • Gemini, an air sign, can gain immediate mental and verbal rapport with others.
  • Pisces, a water sign, can gain immediate emotional rapport with others.

A mental, verbal, and often shallow Gemini woman will pick up on the softer feelings of her Pisces man and appear more emotional and compassionate then she truly is. The dreamy, sensitive Pisces man will soak up the vitality and happy, positive attitude of his Gemini woman and appear more carefree than he truly is. However, over time, both will begin to wonder if they ever really knew the other at all.

The very things they found attractive in the other have the potential to become the tragic flaws in an intimate Gemini/Pisces relationship.

Astrological Square

The signs Gemini and Pisces are in what astrologers call a square relationship. Square aspects imply restrictions and challenges that cause friction. A square between the Sun signs of two individuals creates conflict in a relationship that takes the form of desires and needs that are anchored to mutually exclusive centers (Suns).

  • Gemini lives in an environment meant for the exchange of facts and ideas. At Gemini's center is a desire to experience life through the dissemination of information.
  • Pisces lives in a world of feelings and emotions. At Pisces' center is a desire to experience life through an exchange of emotions and feelings.

In a Gemini/Pisces relationship, the challenge for both is to realize there is more than one way to understand life, and each has its role to play. If Gemini can accept, value, and emulate the inherently emotional nature of Pisces, and Pisces can recognize, value, and follow the "what you see is what you get," facts and logic of Gemini, these two can learn from each other and be better when together.

However, when mutable air (Gemini) and mutable water (Pisces) meet, the challenge of the square is damp, slippery, and always on the move. This can create a relationship that is bubbly and alive, one that can drift along without a clear direction, or one where the individuals simply end up going their separate ways.

Gemini and Pisces as Lovers

Though there can be an initial sexual attraction, in truth Gemini/Pisces make better friends than lovers. They may not even be sexually attracted to one another or if they are, not act on it. However, if they do become sexually intimate, this is where the problems in the relationship can begin to reveal themselves.

Each is an adventurous, imaginative, and creative lover. Both are happy to experiment, role play, and get a little bit naughty, all of which can make their time in bed together fun. The problem is that while this will be completely satisfying for a Gemini woman, it definitely won't be for a Pisces man. Pisces needs much more than just a fun, casual romp in the hay to feel satisfied. He needs to feel loved and adored.

To Gemini, sex is just sex, something to enjoy but not to take too seriously. However for Pisces, the act of making love is like manna from heaven. He wants the whole experience to be a mystical, magical carpet ride that takes them both out of the body and beyond. He wants romance and foreplay. He wants to bask in the afterglow of lovemaking with his lover by his side. The Gemini woman is just a girl who wants the have fun and leave it at that.

The Honeymoon Stage and Beyond

Pisces greatest gift to his lover is his willingness to please and during the honeymoon stage, Gemini also wants to please Pisces. But when the honeymoon wears off, and Gemini's need for almost immediate emotional detachment and separation emerges, Pisces is left feeling bewildered, unloved, and abandoned. And sans honeymoon fervor, Gemini will begin to see Pisces as too emotionally needy, clingy, and insecure.

The key for a successful Gemini/Pisces sexual relationship is in accepting the other the way they are, communicating their individual needs, and finding ways to compromise. Though this is likely to be difficult, it's not impossible.

Making the Relationship Work in General

A Gemini sees the smile on a clown's face and is happy. A Pisces feels the sadness hidden behind the smile and is sad. Gemini/Pisces don't always see eye to eye or understand why they see thing differently. However, if they make an effort to understand their different ways of interpreting the world, both can grow as individuals, and a beautiful relationship is possible.

drifting apart

Communication is paramount. Neither partner should ever assume to know where the other is coming from or blame the other for not seeing things the way they do. They must try to understand that Gemini lives in a world that is clear, airy, mental, and logical, while Pisces lives in a deep watery world of emotions, feelings, and intuitions

The mutable quality of this relationship can be either a blessing or a curse. It can enable each to enter and adapt to the other's world, overcome misunderstandings and conflicts, and grow. But it can just as easily make the relationship directionless or one that ends almost as soon as it begins.

Like the Gemini woman and the Pisces man themselves, without some sort of glue, what direction a Gemini/Pisces relationship will take is difficult to define.

Astrologically Incompatible

Gemini and Pisces are considered incompatible. However, sometimes the best relationships are those that challenge the individual partners to be more than they've been before. Sun signs are important in determining compatibility, but astrological synastry is complex. When dealing with Gemini and Pisces suns only, there's nothing solid that will hold the relationship together. However, that doesn't mean the relationship is doomed; it just means you'll have to look beyond the Sun signs to find relationship glue. It's always important to remember that "the stars impel, they don't compel." If a couple is willing do the work necessary, even the most astrologically incompatible couple can have a successful long-term relationship.
