Aries and Gemini is a great match because you have so much in common. You both get bored easily, seek excitement, need personal space and freedom, love debates and like to do everything at 100 miles per hour.
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 Aries man or Aries woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Gemini man or Gemini woman.
The real beauty of this pairing is that while you're intrinsically a more passionate person, your Gemini is more of a mental person and a natural chameleon - your partner will 'copy' your style, and become just as passionate.
Better yet, they'll often do so while discarding all the bad habits which you sometimes get criticized for (such as being too aggressive), while keeping all the good stuff people love about you! (such as being bold and straight to the point)
You're the more aggressive partner, but your Gemini won't have a problem with you leading the way while they pour out ideas on where to go and what to do next. You're a physical person and your Gemini is an intellectual person, making for a great team in this area.
One very nice aspect of this relationship is that it will be harder to offend your Gemini than most other people, and if you do it will be soon forgotten (and no, don't take that as a challenge! You can certainly offend them, they're just a lot more thick skinned than most).
The worst you'll get is a tongue lashing and possibly a few wise cracks. You both enjoy a good debate, and your partner is verbally skilled enough to defuse the worst and keep the best when it comes to discussions.
Your biggest problem as a team will be a lack of foresight, and a lack of follow-through on projects. Both of you love starting and hate finishing. More to the point you'll both get distracted by an even better idea shortly after you start anything!
However, as neither of you are big on (boring!) long term strategy or maximising efficiency for results this actually works fairly well providing a constant supply of short term excitement which you both enjoy.
For some Aries the chemistry here may not be quite as intense as with people you don't get along with (lets be blunt, some of you need a certain level of conflict to really get the fires burning!) it will however be among the most intense for non-love-hate relationships. Your passion, inhibition and spontaneity will be both welcomed and encouraged.
It's likely you will eventually become the more dominant partner in the bedroom, and your Gemini will likely love every minute of it!
As a side note, Gemini's often enjoy talking about sex, so if you're a bold Aries (go on, admit it!) then don't hesitate to tell them what you plan to do to them, both before and during!
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.
This is a great match, and you compliment each other in nearly every respect. You have much in common, and will find your Aries lover to be the perfect fuel to fire you up, and then act on the endless stream of ideas which you produce as a result. It makes for big circle of fun!
You both love communicating, and constantly look for excitement. Aries is drawn to your intelligence, and you're drawn to how spontaneous, genuine and dynamic they are.
Aries is more naturally passionate and adventurous than you are, and you'll enjoy both traits, whilst gradually adopting (being corrupted by?!) them. You'll be a constant source of inspiration to each other. Your Aries will almost certainly bring out your passionate and spontaneous side in this respect.
Aries are also more aggressive by nature, a setup which suits you well when your partner is this exciting. The match will allow you to focus more on the role of think-tank, keeping you both supplied with fun ideas to act on.
Neither of you is overly emotional, needy or jealous, and Aries will shrug off the things that other signs might criticize you for. Meanwhile your Aries lover is dynamic enough to keep you on your toes.
Neither of you want to be tied down or make a commitment too early in a relationship, but this relationship is exciting enough that neither of you will want to stray!
Both of you love starting things, and neither likes finishing them. Don't be surprised if you leave a trail of started projects, each replaced by something bigger and better. Of course this provides constant entertainment, so neither of you will have a problem with it.
Aries are both exciting and often verbal lovers, both aspects you'll appreciate and enjoy. You'll love the sexual directness and inhibition of your partner, and will find yourself becoming increasingly daring to keep pace (see my book suggestion above for Aries if you haven't already, and make sure they buy it! No Gemini has complained to me so far..)
Aries typically doesn't have a problem talking dirty with a little nudge, and once they realize how much you enjoy that, it will keep you entertained for years. If anyone can hold your interest in the bedroom, your Aries can!
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. To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account for each of you, with a real astrology reading...
