Gemini and Aquarius is a pairing bringing together free thinkers that need a lot of space in relationships. A whirl of stimulating activities gets the ball rolling, since these two are curiosity seekers. It's a meeting of two bright minds, and that's where the seeds of love begin.
Nothing is taboo for Aquarius, and Gemini is flexible enough to try anything once! This leads to lots of experimentation, on dates and in the bedroom. Aquarius is drawn to the unconventional, and accepts the restless and inconstant Gemini nature.
And Gemini is charmed by the wholly original ideas spilling forth from Aquarius. Both like to go their own way a lot, so neither will take it personally. They understand the need for intellectual independence, and will have lots of separate friends.
The Aquarius-Gemini relationship has longterm potential, since there's always more to learn and talk about. As a sign known to calm the mentally unstable, Aquarius can be soothing to the Gemini nerves. Gemini may not understand when Aquarius gets stuck on one idea to the point of obsession, but will respect the mental focus.
Aquarius shows by example how Gemini can harness all its brain power. There's not a lot of heavy emotionality here, which makes it possible for them to be friends first. Long after the lust phase is over, they're inspired companions -- and that's enduring.
What's the glue that holds them together? Will there be so much space between Gemini and Aquarius that they drift in and out of each others lives? It helps to have a shared purpose, like raising children or cultivating a shared passion. The word brainstorming comes to mind -- each helps the other fully conceptualize their plans. Is it all talk and no walk? This will depend on other elements, like earth, in the birth chart. Is there a cool air here, with no feeling? Look to the water element or areas of emotional compatibility.
Both have big friend circles, and will want to spend quality time with the beloved, to make them feel special.
Each knows their main engagement is the world of ideas, and this makes them philosophical about endings. They come together for a season or a lifetime, understanding life goes on. A good match with infinite room for growth.
