Gemini and Cancer make a rather curious couple. Sensitive, emotional Cancer has trouble communicating clearly, but Gemini’s silver tongue may encourage the Crab to come out of its shell; Cancer, in turn, can teach Gemini to slow down and appreciate the world. Gemini can easily slip into the role of Cancer’s knight in shining armor; Cancer returns that favor with their characteristic urge to protect the ones they love. Quality of home life is important to Cancer, and Gemini will be spoiled by their Cancer lover’s hearty home cooking, soft bed and other creature comforts. Cancer is strongly intuitive and maintains an almost psychic connection with their loved ones, but can tend toward possessiveness and idealization of their Gemini partner.
Cancer tends to keep their emotions bottled up inside as they have trouble expressing themselves. Gemini, in turn, can benefit from Cancer’s intuitive approach, so different from Gemini’s bubbly, surface nature. Deep, emotional Cancer can also sometimes dampen Gemini’s airy enthusiasm, and light, fast-paced Gemini can leave Cancer feeling ruffled, even tattered. Balance can be achieved if they learn to talk openly with one another. Cancer is an initiator and likes to lead the way; Gemini is flexible, willing to follow another’s lead, but they may try to lead by being brave, even confrontational; for it to run smoothly between these two, they both need to learn when to back down and let the other to take the lead. Each partner’s ability to provide what the other is lacking makes theirs a fulfilling relationship.
