Upside: Stimulating conversations; flexible thinkers; experimental; gift for synthesis; adaptable and accepting of others.

Downside: Virgo more routine oriented, Gemini less so; detached with emotions; analyzing everything to death; love not taking root

Mutable Air (Gemini) and Mutable Earth (Virgo)

Meeting of Minds

Gemini and Virgo are big thinkers and talkers, which gives them a good rapport at the outset. Their minds light up with such a witty companion, and soon there's a vigorous stream of ideas passing back and forth. They offer reviews of movies, books, restaurants, political commentary, and opine into the evening.

But while Virgo is precise, Gemini's communication style is like a fine mist, spraying everywhere. Soon, Virgo may start to wonder if Gemini is a bit of a loose cannon. Things turn sour when Gemini picks up on Virgo's critical vibe. Gemini throws caution to the wind, while Virgo prefers things to be planned out.

Careful and Carefree

Both are Mercury-ruled, and with lots of understanding, could benefit long term from the different slant of the other. Gemini helps Virgo think outside the box. Virgo's focus brings clarity, and helps Gemini direct its mental surges. A sticking point is spontaneity, since it's what Gemini thrives on and what sends Virgo into nervous spasms of worry.

Keep in mind that Virgo and Gemini square each other, and this creates natural tension.  Sometimes this is deliciously edgy, for others it's crazy making.  Both Virgo and Gemini have sensitive nervous systems, and so extra TLC is advised.  Together you can come up with ways to spin and unravel the anxious knots of the day. 

Virgo wants Gemini to show up on time, and craves the familiar, having a routine. Gemini bores easily, and prefers to keep things "up in the air." It's a meeting of minds, but they may not find a deeper reason to be together. For this to endure, they'll have to apply their sharpness and ability to analyze to the built-in conundrum of their clashing personae.

Gemini and Virgo Love Stories

"earth and air = dust" writes reader Troy, continuing, "I am a gem man, separated from my Virgo woman- what a disaster. Perhaps if I knew what were Virgo's were really like I would not have taken so many of her traits as in the negtive way I did. The hardest thing for me was she was so practical and planned, I am certainly not, she was clean and organised, me, soooo not, her judgemental and critical, me carefree and empathetic, - but MY god was she such a beautiful person - perhaps it was my own irresponsible ways that lead to our destruction
