Gemini and Capricorn can be a challenging relationship to make work. The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, if you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Gemini man or Gemini woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Capricorn man or Capricorn woman.
Your Capricorn is likely to be a hardworking, serious and structured partner, who at times may feel more like a parent than a lover.
This is a partner who is much more conservative and reserved than you are, while also being a great believer in tradition, careful planning and strict self discipline. Very down to earth and practical, they can ground you and provide stability.
The catch of course is that they will do this by being more serious about life, goals and projects. Without compromise and understanding you may come to see them as dull, while they see you as irresponsible or immature.
Your Capricorn is also a partner who is less sociable than you are, leading to possible arguments over going out or staying home. Similarly, money is likely to be a source of arguments. You prefer to enjoy it as it arrives, while your Capricorn often prefers to squirrel it away for a rainy day. As with other life areas you prefer excitement while they favor security and predictability.
These traits are fairly opposite to your own and the initial gap between you in this relationship is a fairly wide one. The key to reconciling this is of course to take the time to understand each other, and make an effort to respect the other persons needs and viewpoints. Learn from each other instead of criticizing etc.
Capricorns typically prefer fun and light hearted sex, and you may welcome this area of the relationship where you aren't always expected to behave!
On the other hand the long term chemistry in this match usually isn't very good, and there's a high chance you will find this partner too predictable for your taste eventually.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
Initially you may be attracted to your Gemini's fast mind, clever sense of humor and light personality. This is a partner who lives to have fun. This is a good thing, but it can also be a source of problems if you're one of the (many) Capricorns with a strict 'work first, play later' outlook.
Gemini's often prefer a fairly wild and reckless lifestyle by your standards, and yours may well wear you out sometimes with their apparent indecisiveness and spontaneous decision making.
They also have been known to play a lot of games within a relationship, and some of these may annoy you. For example, you value security and faithfulness highly, and it's not beyond most Gemini's to try to make their partners jealous!
While you are both often hard working, your Gemini typically wont be as ambitious as you are, often favoring political maneuvering to good old fashioned hard work where available.
You'll find this is a partner who often enjoys talking about things more than actually doing them! (You may also be surprised just how effective this technique can be in the hands of a charismatic master!..)
This is a very sociable partner, and arguments over going out or staying home are likely to happen sometimes. On the other hand Gemini's are very skilled at networking, so if social contacts are important to your career then this could be an invaluable talent. Either way, you will probably appreciate your Gemini's sense of fashion and style - this isn't a partner who is likely to embarrass you.
Money may be an issue in this match. You like to save it while your Gemini often prefers to spend it as it arrives. This is often the cherry on the cake, confirming your suspicion of how irresponsible your Gemini really is, while they become even more convinced that you were secretly hired by their parents to keep an eye on them!
You both prefer light hearted and 'fun' sex, so you're on the same page here. Gemini's are often noted for preferring variety and surprises in the bedroom, so don't worry about shocking or offending this partner!
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level.
