Aries and Gemini
– Friendship Compatibility Profile :
When Aries and Gemini form a friendship, the partnership is one of physical as well as intellectual strength. There is a lot of movement and optimism in this relationship. Signs that are two apart in the Zodiac often enjoy excellent communication. Aries has a pioneering spirit that is interesting to Gemini, who also values independence. Arguments may arise if Aries takes Gemini’s changeable nature too seriously or if Gemini feels that Aries is being too controlling. The two are well matched, though: Aries wants to experience things and Gemini would rather discuss them. Together they can make new discoveries they might have missed alone.
Both Aries and Gemini have a lot of energy, and by spending time together, they can come up with great ideas and common goals. Aries likes the freedom to jump into things and get their hands dirty. Gemini wants intellectual freedom and is able to look at all sides of an argument and see Aries’ reasons for decisions. When Gemini gets wishy-washy, Aries can help them make up their mind but must be careful to allow Gemini intellectual space and not be overly possessive.
Aries is ruled by the Planet Mars, and Gemini is ruled by the Planet Mercury. These Planets represent communication and physical action. Because of different attitudes, Aries and Gemini get a lot done when they’re together — they are good at communicating and getting their point across in different ways. They may also have fevered debates, but where Gemini does it for fun and intellectual challenge, Aries takes it more seriously. The two Signs need to learn how personally they each may take harsh words and take care to avoid arguments that become too involved.
Aries is a Fire Sign, and Gemini is an Air Sign. Air fuels Fire and keeps it going; Gemini can keep up with the action and energy of Aries and the Ram’s tendency to start new adventures and endeavors. When their energies combine, anything is possible! Gemini is able to follow Aries’ action-oriented lead and jump from one idea or plan to the next, while maintaining an intellectual outlook. Both Signs have wide-ranging interests, and Aries’ desire to physically participate gives them great stories to share with the more intellectually-oriented Gemini. Aries is a Cardinal Sign, and Gemini is a Mutable Sign. Aries is the initiator of the friendship, the one with enough get-up-and-go for the both of them, and Gemini will accept these ideas as long as they are not forced into it. They never really argue over who gets to take the credit for good ideas or eventual successes. Aries enjoys the glory, of course, and Gemini is happy to be in the background pulling the strings. Both Signs are better at starting things than ending them, so if one friend gets bored with something, the other won’t resent moving on to something more exciting. The best aspect of the Aries-Gemini friendship is the way they can combine their strengths and energies and function as a single unit. Together they can learn much more than either Sign would alone. Their complementary qualities make theirs a highly beneficial and successful alliance.
