Aries is a Fire sign. Gemini is an Air sign. Fire and Air are a combustible mix. Together they can drive each other and can be a hot and passionate couple, but the relationship is also likely to be run hot and cold. This is an intriguing match that is usually considered astrologically compatible, but the reality is that a long term committed relationship is iffy.
Gemini and Aries Compatibility
Gemini and Aries are similar in many ways. They make great friends, can create a dynamic work team, are fantastic together on dates and in bed, but when it comes to a committed relationship, the similarities can be difficult.
- Both have a passion for life and live in the moment.
- Both will do something-anything to prevent being bored.
- Both need unfettered freedom.
- Both are fun, flirtatious, and love to socialize.
- Both move quickly from situation to situation and person to person and don't always finish what they start.
Gemini and Aries can be great friends and spend hours out on the town exploring each other's world, experiencing and discussing new things and meeting new people. As friends, they can easily have fun together and give each other unfettered freedom.
Wonderful Date Mates
When a Gemini and Aries start dating one another, they're both thinking fun friends with benefits. They'll have captivating conversations, be out and about with friends, and going to parties. Even when they're alone together, you can bet it won't be boring or routine. What one doesn't think of, the other will. Then, of course, there's the sexual attraction.
Hot in Bed
An Aries (male or female) is driven by the conquest, while a Gemini is spellbound by the sexual directness of Aries. A Gemini has a variety of ideas, and an Aries puts them into action. As lovers, they will challenge each other both physically and mentally. Hot, passionate, fun and experimental is the best way to describe the sex life of a Gemini and Aries couple.
Commitment and Marriage
A long-term relationship is possible, but it's likely to be a bit unconventional. Gemini and Aries both lead independent and active lives. Gemini can be curious, mischievous and fickle, while Aries is always aggressively chasing rainbows, and neither is particularly interested in settling down with a home and family.
- Both need time to themselves.
- Neither likes the idea of long-term commitments and responsibilities.
- Gemini averts conflict and Aries meets it straight on, but both can have out of control tempers.
- Neither can bear long term emotional entanglements.
Both are Commitment Shy
To sum this up, both Gemini and Aries are a bit skittish when it comes to commitment. While they make great friends and can drift into a love affair that's so hot and passionate that living together seems the logical next step, this is where their problems can begin.
Making a Gemini and Aries Committed Relationship Work
What works so well in friendship and dating, can present problems when it comes to love, romance, and commitment. While both like the idea of love, but they're both also passionate about their independence. Each wants to make sure they aren't giving anything up before taking the next step. They can go through many stormy episodes before ever settling into anything stable.
Understanding and Trust
Gemini and Aries in a committed, stable relationship can be tricky. However, if they can maintain a "live and let live" approach with each other and keep their time together from becoming boring or routine, this coupling can work. However, it will take a lot of understanding and trust.
For a committed relationship to be long-lasting they'll need:
- To allow each other unfettered freedom to be who they are.
- To be straight forward and honest with one another.
- To accept that there will be arguments and jealousy.
- Understand that the relationship will run hot and cold as well as be on again, off again.
While the signs Gemini and Aries are compatible, astrological signs are not people, and people are much more than their Sun signs. When an astrologer is looking for long-term commitment between a Gemini and an Aries, they know that at their core they are perfectly compatible, but will then begin examining how the planets in one birth chart aspect the planets in the other birth chart. They particularly like to see Saturn aspects between the two birth charts. Saturn can bring stability to almost any relationship.
