Capricorn and Gemini as a Love Match

Updated December 17, 2018

Capricorn and Gemini are a curious mismatch. A Capricorn is an old soul who, like a funny and kind grandparent, is protective, calm, and wise without being a wacky know-it-all. A Gemini is a young soul, who is lively, open, friendly, prone to flittering around like a whirlwind and often seems like a whacky teen know-it-all.

Dynamics of Capricorn and Gemini Lovers

Pairing a Capricorn and Gemini is like trying to mix oil and water. These two signs are very different with almost opposite sets of ideas and desires. One thing's for sure they are not perfect astrological partners.

Capricorn and Gemini in Bed

Capricorn is attracted to Gemini's light, playful, sexual nature, Gemini is attracted by Capricorns lusty, physical, just-do-it sexual nature, and neither needs emotional involvement. Capricorn is up for a quickie in the afternoon, which intrigues and appeals to Gemini, and Capricorn likes that Gemini can engage and disengage in a minute. Yes, these two can have fun together in bed, as long as the fun lasts.

The rub is that Capricorn seldom jumps into bed with a person they have not sketched into their future plans while Gemini never has future plans for a person they jump into bed with.

Earth and Air Kick-up the Dust

In the beginning, chances are these two signs are intrigued by each other because they're so different. However, once that initial rush of excitement becomes more comfortable and they've had time to get to know each other beyond the bedroom, Gemini and Capricorn relationships will cool as the differences between them start to show around the edges. They'll soon realize there's a small gap between them. Eventually, that small gap can become a deep chasm. It might help to understand just how large that chasm can grow.

Capricorn and Love

The first noticeable area of contention between this couple is their views on love and marriage. Capricorn is slow to trust a new love interest and wants to be sure before leaping in. Gemini enjoys the risk and uncertainty of new love and immediately leaps in. It's part of the intrigue that generates excitement. A relationship has to have sparks and mystery to hold a Gemini's interest.

What Capricorn Wants

Capricorn is serious-minded and enjoys a calm, quiet, and planned life, while Gemini lives spontaneously and does what's expedient at the moment. Unlike Geminis, Capricorns aren't very interested in just having a love affair. They approach romantic relationships with the goal of finding a life mate, getting married and raising a family. They need a spouse to help them build a home and create a haven from the hectic pace of life, a pace at which a Gemini thrives.

Gemini and Love

Gemini loves to flirt with potential love interests. Their dual nature gives Geminis an air of mystery that suitors, even Capricorns, can't resist. They enjoy love affairs and relish each stage from flirting to the first blush of romance. If the newness and excitement wear off, Gems will leave the relationship in search of those feelings and sensations. However, a more evolved Gemini can sustain a relationship by keeping it interesting and exciting if they have a willing and equally adventurous partner.

What Gemini Needs

To Geminis, home is simply a base where they stop in to change clothes or pack their bags for their next jaunt or adventure. They want a beautiful home, but they want someone else to take care of it. Geminis can easily uproot themselves, find another home and feel perfectly happy to start over. Capricorns set deep roots and won't be able to manage the changes that Geminis want.

Home Life for Capricorn and Gemini

Capricorn loves home and hearth and is very conservative when it comes to lifestyles and values. Gemini, on the other hand, is open to all new things and rushes toward life to experience it. A Gemini doesn't really need or want to put down roots. You could say that Capricorn prefers to own their home while Gemini prefers to rent.

Capricorn at Home

Capricorns are planners who quickly build a home as soon as they're out on their own. They want their partners to enjoy cuddling on the couch in front of the hearth rather than going out dancing and jet-setting around the world.

Gemini at Home

Geminis will last in that scenario for a while, but the wings on their feet will soon flutter to leave home in search of excitement and fun. Capricorns aren't above putting a guilt trip on Geminis in an attempt to turn them into homebodies. Of course, they should know better since the word "guilt" is not in Gemini's vocabulary.

Capricorn and Gemini Marriage

Capricorn's attempts to appeal to Gemini's sense of duty in making a home will simply roll off Gemini's back like water rolls off the back of a duck. It's like watching the ground try to hang on to a summer breeze as it stirs over the grass. But that's just the beginning of the struggle if a Capricorn and Gemini marry.

As time passes, the chasm can widen even further as their romantic relationship morphs into more of a parent/child interaction, with Capricorn in the role of the stern parent and Gemini in the role the petulant, sulking child.

Appeasing Gemini's Social Needs

Capricorn will try to appease Gemini's restless nature by having cookouts and ice cream socials or hosting other get-togethers with friends and family. This will thrill Gemini, but it can't serve as a mainstay. Geminis need a lot more social interaction; after all, they're renowned butterflies that need to spread their wings.

While a Gemini will appreciate a Capricorns attempt to branch out beyond the comfort zone, they will need to do more to keep Gemini from simply flying away out of sheer boredom. Geminis need fun and change in their life the way most people need food and drink. They can't survive for long if confined to the same place for long periods of time, especially if they don't like being there.

Star-Crossed Lovers

Can they make the relationship work? A lot will depend on the aspects of their natal charts and other areas that are more compatible. For example, if Gemini's Moon is in an earth sign or the chart indicates several planets in earth signs, the two will have more in common. By the same token, Capricorns need to have some air sign placements in their chart. If the two have rising signs are compatible, it will make a significant difference. Clearly, Capricorn and Gemini will face challenges, but if they truly love each other and are willing to put in the effort, they may be able to become more than star-crossed lovers.
