Who among us has fallen in love with a Gemini? Charming and attractive, their mercurial personalities often present challenges to the more pragmatic among us. Gemini changes their mood, focus and perspective like a summer breeze changes direction. Impossible to pin down, Gemini is unpredictable, fun and a little bit kooky. Find out about Gemini: love and relationships week-by-week, beginning with folk born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp.
Taurus-Gemini Cusp May 19-24
Anyone who knows a person born in this week will see them as a ‘force of nature’. They are active, enthusiastic and dynamic. They have a deep interest in a wide range of subjects. Taurus-Gemini has so much energy that people are naturally attracted to them and charmed by them. However, their enigmatic nature also means that their friends and lovers worry about losing them. It’s as if Taurus-Gemini could slip from their grasp like some sort of supernatural being.
One problem that may arise is that others view them as overly ‘into themselves’. Taurus-Gemini sees themselves as endlessly fascinating and, if they wish to sustain a long-term relationship, they might need to cultivate a more neutral perspective. After all no-one wants to be with someone who thinks they are the center of the universe (even if they are).
Taurus-Gemini will do their best to avoid dealing with the more mundane aspects of life. This can lead to frustration in their partners, so cuspers might need to grit their teeth and take on some of the routine tasks if they want to sustain a long-term relationship and demonstrate their commitment to it. This means that they must set their priorities and stick to them. A little determination and sacrifice goes a long way.
Anyone involved in a romantic relationship with a Taurus-Gemini will understand their need for respect. You don’t have to share all their interests but they will appreciate it if you make an effort occasionally. They love to introduce their partners to new experiences. This means they make excellent parents too as they can make childhood a magical time for their children.
Gemini 1 May 25-June 2
With their quicksilver wit and lightning fast thought processes, Gemini 1 has one overriding characteristic and that is their love of freedom. They will never tolerate any attempt to hem them in or restrict them. Parents of Gemini 1 may have the most horrendous time when their children are young, due to the fact that from babyhood, they seem hellbent on escape.
Gemini 1s are full of ideas and fast to implement them. Unfortunately, they are not so good at completing their projects, often leaving it to others to pick up where they left off. However, their valuable contributions should be nurtured as they have undoubted skill in seeing problems from different perspectives, and may come up with solutions that others haven’t considered. This is also true within their relationships, and their partners may have a hard time keeping up with all their plans and schemes.
Of course, along with their quick minds come volatile emotions, which obviously impact personal relationships. A positive aspect is that partners will never have to make a guess as to what Gemini 1 is feeling and thinking. They are unable to hide their emotions. They need to have regular ‘downloads’ of perceived injustices and complaints. Just getting it all off their chest will restore their equilibrium. Lovers need to make concessions here, because otherwise, if you oppose their views while they are offloading, it may escalate into a fight. It might be hard, but go with the flow, and if you have grievances about them, keep them for another day.
Gemini 1s are capable of sustaining long-term relationships as long as their partners are willing to break up the routine and embrace that need for freedom. It may mean living an unconventional lifestyle. Also if you’ve been in a relationship for any time, you will already know Gemini 1’s propensity for emotional manipulation. A wise person will learn when to go with it and when to oppose it.
Gemini 2 June 3-10
Gemini 2 are often a bundle of contradictions. They need support, love and understanding, yet they will alienate those closest to them by blurting out hurtful remarks without considering their impact. They have a deep need to communicate their thoughts and ideas. Sometimes they confuse others by sounding as though they are arguing, when in fact, the argument is in their own head. Thus partners need to understand when Gemini 2 is venting, it is not directed at them, even if it feels like it.
Their early upbringing will affect how they are all their lives. If they were made to feel inadequate or wrong as children, they will be always fighting this self-image of themselves. Self-acceptance is key for Gemini 2.
Gemini 2 tends to go for quiet, thoughtful partners to balance their own volubleness. As their own ‘darker’ nature is usually subjugated, they look for that quality in others. Gemini 2 does better with a partner from a similar background to their own. Shared ideals and viewpoints are helpful to them. Their partners will ‘get’ where they are coming from.
While Gemini 2, like other Geminis, have a yearning for variety in life, they also need underlying stability. If their partner can accommodate these two requirements, the relationship will have a good chance of lasting. However, if these needs are not met, Gemini 2 will go looking elsewhere.
Gemini 3 June 11-18
Adventurers to the core, Gemini 3’s prime directive is to seek out new experiences and push the boundaries of their own limitations. Freedom is paramount. This means that people born in this week are less likely to settle down in a long-term relationship than any others. Life is always exciting around a Gemini 3, but don’t expect them to stay around for long. They will resist any kind of groove, however pleasant.
Neither leaders or followers, Gemini 3 are masters of their own destiny. They will never be tamed or controlled so it is never worth trying to do so. It will only end in heartache. It’s difficult because their natural charm is compelling, which means they leave a lot of broken hearts in their wake.
Affection is important to Gemini 2, but never so important that they will jeopardize their freedom for it. Tending towards serial mid to long-term relationships, they will only stay for as long as it’s working for them. They find it hard to disentangle themselves from emotional involvement, so it’s wise for any potential partner to be aware of the signs and prepare for the inevitable ending. However, Gemini 2 much prefers an amicable separation and are happy to remain friends with their ex.
