Gemini and Scorpio is an interesting match. Lots of chemistry, but very different personalities. It's one of the more common matches, and in many ways one of the most challenging. The low scores then represent a high initial challenge, however, if you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival the scores of any other match.
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 Scorpio man or Scorpio woman.
In many ways this relationship is a battle between light (you) and darkness (your Scorpio)
It's also likely to be a relationship of great sex and tough emotional conflict. You'll be attracted by your Scorpios sex appeal and mystery, while they'll find you endlessly fascinating (they're very good at understand people, and you're hard to understand!)
Your Scorpio is highly intuitive, emotional and secretive, and your gift for clever talk may not work here. Scorpio is largely immune to such things.
Similarly, you're generally one of the most sociable (and sometimes flirtatious) signs, while Scorpio generally doesn't have much patience or tolerance for either.
One thing you'll need to adjust to is giving your partner alone time regularly, as that's how Scorpio recharges, and you'll pay the price if it doesn't happen. They like their privacy.
On the bright side, you can relay information to your Scorpio (they also love intrigue and scandal) who in turn can advise you on how best to handle and understand others.
Overall, you may find your partner too intense and possessive, while they find you too shallow and superficial. You may be okay with that of course, but it's likely your Scorpio wont like it.
Scorpio wants to control, so if you can deal with that then you'll help this relationship a lot. If you can also practice speaking from your heart instead of your head then your Scorpio will appreciate it.
Your imagination and Scorpios passion is potentially a fantastic match, though in the long term your partner may a little too 'deep' for your taste at times.
While you're both passionate and romantic lovers, this fundamental difference in needs can make sex unsatisfying for both of you unless you take the time to understand your partner and respect their needs and viewpoints. Doing so will often expose you to new experiences you'll enjoy, so it's not nearly as self sacrificing as it might sound.
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.
Your Gemini will be very attractive to you: charming, intriguing and best of all, mentally illusive. This is someone you'll have difficulty understanding, and their 'depth' in this area may be a misleading portent. As time goes on, ironically your main complaint about them will probably be their lack of depth.
This is a light, fun, and sociable partner who is very unlikely to be on your emotional level regarding the relationship.
You may start to notice that your Gemini is fairly superficial by your standards, and you're often on different wavelengths when it comes to communication. You like the intense and direct approach, and your partner likes anything but.
On some levels, you may feel that your partner actually is enjoying the difference, and perhaps even taunting you with it! Gemini's can be notoriously playful, and often at the worst possible times!
Areas such as socializing and friends may be a hot topic in a Scorpio Gemini relationship. Your partner loves both, and you don't. Similarly, you like some privacy and time to recharge alone, while your Gemini really prefers to be out in the world and playing with people.
Overall this match creates the opportunity for a very well rounded partnership, with each of you bringing a very different viewpoint to the team. However, it also has a high potential of not always being easy.
It's one of the least likely matches to work without substantial compromises being made on both sides. Of course, some partners are definitely worth that.
There will be a lot of chemistry and attraction here, and in the bedroom neither of you will have any complaints. Your passion together with your Gemini's imagination is a great match.
You may find your partner a little bit too adventurous and unpredictable for your taste in the longer term, though you can certainly keep up with that.
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.
