Sign to Sign

General Characteristics of Scorpio

Begin by taking a look at the general characteristics of Scorpio. Scorpios are known for being deep, mysterious and a bit taciturn. Beside their amazing eyes, you can often spot Scorpios by their inherent dislike for chit-chat. Scorpios loathe speaking so much, they'll often just raise a hand or an eyebrow to acknowledge that someone has spoken. If they're really not interested, they'll just grunt nine times out of ten!

On a more positive note, Scorpios are loyal to the death. You can count on them to be there for you through thick and thin, in good times and bad. These folks will not desert you when the going gets tough. They also give great advice, so when they finally do speak, be sure to listen!

General Characteristics of Gemini

Busy, busy, busy; that's Gemini! Inquisitive, chatty and curious, Gemini is a bundle of energy. It's very difficult for Geminis to stay in one place for long; they just have to move. It's not a secret either that Geminis love to talk, but they also need to keep their hands busy. This is why you'll often see them fiddling with a pen or religiously playing with their X-Box; no matter what, those hands have to move!

Geminis are also a lot of fun. They love to play practical jokes, throw surprise birthday parties and entertain you with all of their accents (a true Gem will have more than one!). Light-hearted and light on their feet, Geminis are a welcome addition at any gathering.

Compatibility Horoscopes: Scorpio and Gemini Together

If you're wondering about the compatibility horoscopes of Scorpio and Gemini, look no further. Here are the pros and cons you'll want to know!

The Pros

First, the good news!

  • Both Gemini and Scorpio enjoy delving into life's mysteries.

From tarot readings to palm readings, both zodiac signs are interested. In fact, they say that Geminis make some of the best mediums around, mostly because of their inherent communication skills. Interested in all things metaphysical, Scorpio will adore that!

  • They've got the smarts.

Scorpio and Gemini are sharp signs, and they enjoy sharing their wit. You can also expect a lot of intelligent conversations from the pairing of these two signs.

  • They share hobbies.

Fine art and electronics are other areas where Gemini and Scorpio can connect. Both enjoy understanding and learning about the way things work, and they may also enjoy fine art and historical museums because of their intelligence and curiosity.

The Cons

Now it's time to take a look at some possible pitfalls:

  • Gemini's chattiness may be a major problem for Scorpio. Geminis love to talk, and although Scorpios don't mean to be rude, they may just ignore chatty Gems sometimes. In turn, Geminis may feel understandably hurt.
  • Scorpios tend to "go there" with their emotions and all or nothing honesty, a prospect that is truly frightening to nimble Gemini. Geminis are very logical, and they quickly become uncomfortable with any hint of emotion. This can be a real problem for the relationship in the long run.
  • Not only are Geminis uncomfortable with emotional overtures, they can also be a bit skittish when it comes to physical contact. Although it depends on the placement of Mars (Mars rules sex, sexuality and attraction), working strictly with the Sun signs, this could be an issue.

Can This Pairing Work?

And so the question remains, can the pairing of Scorpio and Gemini work? As you can surmise from the pros and cons section, there's a good chance the relationship will go either way.

There are a few things you can do to tip the scales in your favor. First, consider having your charts done. This way, you'll know right up front about any challenging aspects you may share as well as the areas where things will flow smoother.

Second, remember that it is the moon sign that dictates your emotional state, and because of this, a Scorpio and Gemini can work. Take for example a Gemini with a Cancer moon. This would work well with a Scorpio sun and a Libra moon. Many such combinations like these can help to make this pair work.

And finally, remember that if two people truly love each other and respect each other, they will be able to find a way to get along. Here's to making it work!
