Gemini and Capricorn
– Friendship Compatibility Profile :
When Gemini and Capricorn form a friendship, they must work hard to ensure that their energies are geared toward the same purposes, for their individual approaches are as different as night and day. They are inextricably linked, but they don’t always realize it. Gemini is out there, talking and interacting, skimming over a thousand different experiences without stopping to breathe. The Goat dislikes risks and prefers a well-thought out plan; once they set their sights on a goal, they are sure to reach it eventually. The challenge for Gemini and Capricorn friends is to get to the same place at the same time.
Capricorn is very unassuming and quiet, while Gemini is more outgoing. Capricorn is more stubborn, while Gemini is flexible. When they become friends, they need to have different and well-defined roles to ensure that they don’t cross each other’s boundaries. Their philosophies of life are quite different: Gemini is quick and jumps to conclusions, and Capricorn sees the value of doing things the hard way if it ensures success. Once the friends understand each other’s style, their methods help them to achieve together what they could not achieve alone.
Gemini is ruled by the Planet Mercury, and Capricorn is ruled by the Planet Saturn. These Planets can work at cross-purposes, so it’s important for Gemini and Capricorn to work through their differences. Saturn perseveres and keeps moving ahead through all kinds of difficulties. Mercury has the energy to take projects forward despite obstacles. Both friends tend to be resolute, and neither gives up easily. If their energies are not channeled in positive ways, together these Planets may signify repressed emotion. Capricorn must be careful not to dampen Gemini’s spirit, and Gemini must work to encourage open channels with Capricorn.
Gemini is an Air Sign, and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Gemini initiates action from theory, while Capricorn is more practical. Capricorn asks, ‘what good will this do as I work toward my main goals?’ while Gemini simply sees what they want and achieves it for its own sake, without having a set plan in mind. Although each of these friends may find it difficult to understand where the other is coming from, when they come together their complementary approaches become mutually beneficial and exciting.
Gemini is a Mutable Sign, and Capricorn is a Cardinal Sign. Capricorn is the initiator, while Gemini is adaptable. They have such contrasting approaches to life that they get so much more done when they each have a particular, well-defined role. On the surface, Gemini may be the leader rushing to confront a challenge, but the Goat will also be indirectly in charge because they are consistent and determined. It’s important for both friends to understand that compromise is the key to their connection.
The best aspect of a Gemini and a Capricorn becoming close is that they each bring their own qualities to the friendship. Once they allow each other to be themselves — rather than measuring each other against impossible standards — they can blend well to make a warm, enriching friendship. Theirs is a challenging combination, but if they can learn from each other, it’s worth it!
