Matching clingy Cancer with giddy Gemini certainly isn’t easy. The Crab is a homebody to the core. Its attachment to its home and relationships forms the very structure of its existence. In contrast, the Twins happily flits from one adventure and aspiration to the next. These are intrinsic differences, but when this pairing works, it is truly something special.
Bright and airy, Gemini is the everlasting child of the Zodiac. Perpetually youthful in both appearance and attitude, the Twins flutters through life, seldom thinking of the future. Gemini is all about having fun and loves to travel. The Twins quickly gets bored with day-to-day routine and is always searching for the next great adventure. Gemini is curious about everything and can find fun in even the most ordinary places.
Despite its “live in the moment” persona, Gemini is very clever and does well when climbing the corporate ladder. While the Twins may not be great at settling down to the mundane details, Gemini excels at designating tasks and choosing just the right person for the job. The Twins sees the big picture quickly and can be very ruthless in the pursuit of what it wants, excellent characteristics when it comes to career advancement.
The sensitive Crab loves the quiet life. While Cancer can certainly charm an entire crown when it wishes, the Crab generally prefers to spend its time in the sanctuary of its home. Cancer will carefully build its nest for maximum calm and comfort. Highly empathic, the Crab needs much quiet time to recover from the emotional bombardment it experiences when it is in a crowd. However, this time at home need not be entirely solitary and Cancer quite enjoys spending time with its trusted mate.
Cancer sees the world through an emotional lens and the Crab becomes deeply attached to the people in its life. Despite its ability to determine other people’s emotions, Cancer has a hard time communicating its own feelings, perhaps because they are so profound. This can be a difficult situation for the Crab’s chosen partner as Cancer’s unexpected emotional shifts can be bewildering and more than a little frustrating.
It’s much more likely that Gemini will initiate this potential romance than will Cancer. While the Crab will appreciate Gemini’s vivacity and fun persona, Cancer is unlikely to be impressed by what it considers frivolity and the shallow nature of the Twins. Gemini will be fascinated by the Crab’s mystery and enigmatic air. The curiosity of the Twins will be instigated by these qualities and, as it typical with impulsive Gemini, the chase will quickly begin.
While Cancer’s first impression of the Twins is fairly accurate, the Crab is eventually won over by Gemini’s lively conversation and intelligence. While Cancer isn’t much interested in physical exploration, the Crab quite enjoys exploring the intellectual world of philosophy and abstract theories. Gemini isn’t particularly well-read but makes up for that with its keep intelligence and lightning-fast thought process. The couple will spend hours travelling thorough the intangible world of thought.
Gemini’s entertaining presence and love of new things is good for the Crab. Cancer can easily get trapped inside its head, stuck in a never-ending succession of thoughts and emotions. The Twins irrepressible personality and insistence on continuous motion breaks the Crab out of its reverie and helps Cancer lighten up. The long discussions with Cancer can help Gemini become more introspective and grow up just a bit.
While Gemini cares little about having a stable home base, the pleasure-loving Twins appreciates the comfortable home the Crab so enjoys. Gemini will enjoy being spoiled and pampered by its devoted mate in between its forays out in the exciting world. Cancer is a formidable lover, a trait that the Twins can hardly resist. Gemini is adaptable and adores new experiences, so very little is off limits in the bedroom.
Although perhaps not the most difficult portion of a Cancer-Gemini relationship, the initial creation of the couple is a formidable task. While Gemini regularly gets what it desires with its optimistic insistence, the Crab is not easily convinced that there is enough depth to the Twins to make it a suitable partner. Gemini will have to demonstrate a most unusual level of perseverance for the Twins before it manages to catch the Crab. It is far more likely that Gemini will find another interesting, but more easily attained, partner before Cancer succumbs.
The Crab’s propensity for stability and love of home is another serious roadblock here. The Twins must be constantly on the move and reacts negatively to anything it feels is holding it back. Gemini isn’t particularly interested in the deep emotional commitment so necessary to Cancer. The Twins would rather maintain a more casual relationship that allows it to sample all the variations life has to offer. Cancer is incapable of maintaining such a shallow relationship so a pattern of the Crab grasping and the Twins pulling away will develop making both partners profoundly unhappy.
While Gemini can help Cancer lighten its moods in a superficial way simply with its presence, the Twins lacks the emotional intelligence and sensitivity to aid the Crab during its times of deeper melancholy. All Gemini understands about this is that Cancer suddenly doesn’t want to do anything. This feels like chains to the Twins who hates to be tied down to anything or anyone for long. Rather than attempting to understand what is happening to its mate, Gemini is more likely to head out for a night on the town alone.
A Cancer-Gemini couple has a lot of hard work ahead of them. Their very different emotional needs, as well as intrinsic values, can be difficult to overcome. Gemini, focused on fun and bored by the mundane details of life, finds the home-loving and highly emotional Crab extremely difficult to understand. Cancer, looking for a deep connection with its partner, is frustrated by the shallowness and erratic behavior of its mate. It is only by meeting in the middle does this couple has a chance of making it.
