Gemini and Virgo
– Friendship Compatibility Profile :
When Gemini and Virgo form a friendship, they both need to take time to learn about the other’s approach to life. Both friends’ attitude is worth understanding! Gemini’s Symbol is the Twins; Geminis can often be of two minds about things. If Virgo can give one Twin a strong emotional anchor while allowing the other Twin to flit about, this friendship may stand the test of time. Early on, Virgo may take things a little too earnestly for Gemini, but if Virgo can wait a while, both Twins will learn to adapt to the friendship.
Virgo and Gemini have different approaches to life; Virgo is more sedate and practical, and Gemini is intellectual. It can be hard for Gemini to accept the down to earth, utilitarian approach of Virgo. It might be hard for Virgo to accept Gemini’s flightiness and occasional lack of practicality. Virgo can help Gemini to be more involved in life and to see the depth of ideas rather than simply the surface. Gemini can help Virgo add variety and fun, bringing new excitement into their lives. Both signs are ruled by the Planet Mercury. Gemini is the masculine aspect of Mercury while Virgo the feminine. Mercury is the ruler of communication, and is androgynous — Gemini will quickly take on the form that it chooses while Virgo may want to observe the situation a little while longer. Virgo wants a dependable friend and will take the time to work toward forming the perfect friendship. Gemini has a more intellectual approach, but is good at relating to other people; they can learn to give their friend the steadiness that the Virgo wants.
Virgo is an Earth Sign, and Gemini is an Air Sign. Gemini move through life through pure thought, while Virgo is more practical. Virgo asks, ‘how will this help me achieve my goals in life?’ while Gemini simply finds the object of interest at the moment without having a set plan in mind. Conflicts can arise in this friendship if Virgo is too critical, or Gemini is too distant or detached. Both need to learn they view the world in different ways. Virgo can be too fussy for Gemini’s taste, but Gemini may be too capricious for their Virgoan pal. As long as Virgo understands that Gemini’s gregarious and flirtatious nature does not affect their feelings toward the friendship, things will be okay!
Virgo and Gemini are both Mutable Signs. Virgo tends to be practical and focused on one thing at a time, but Gemini likes to move from one thing to another as the feeling takes them. Virgo needs to give Gemini the freedom to enjoy life as it comes and not be too critical if the relationship is not perfect. Virgo can take Gemini’s ideas and produce something even if Gemini has moved on. Together, Gemini and Virgo can show each other that flexibility binds their interests. The best aspect of the Gemini-Virgo friendship is the security they can give each other once Virgo allows Gemini to willingly commit to being good friends. Both can learn to look at the world through new eyes when they open themselves to each other. As long as they communicate with each other and use their ruler Mercury effectively, theirs will be a gratifying friendship.
