Together the two of you sparkle like a bottle of champagne. Fiery Leo and airy Gemini are a lively combination with plenty of intellectual and creative stimulation. Leo is steady enough to give a firm base for Gemini's restlessness, and Gemini is flexible enough to adapt to Leo's need for centre stage.
Both of you are easily bored and you should ... read more
Leo's public relations staff have made sure that the King of Beasts is presented in newspaper columns as the top of the heap: mane flying, radiating confidence, creativity and self-assurance, ready to outsmart and outshine any foe, loving life and the applause of the crowd.
It's true that you strive for all these things, and spend a lot of ... read more
Geminis sometimes have a hard time knowing what they feel, and an even harder time talking about it. The Gemini partner is usually knowledgeable, sparkling and witty about any subject under the Sun except his own emotions. A Gemini in love can be poetic and eloquent, and no sign writes better love letters. In fact, for a Gemini, letters, e-mails, faxes, ... read more
He loves to find out interesting things about people, just because people are interesting to him. It's rare to get an outpouring of intense emotion; and if you do, it will most likely be in a letter or an e-mail. Gemini men aren't emotionally shallow. But they have the ability to feel things while keeping a detached perspective and a wicked sense of humour.
The Gemini man can be exquisitely romantic. But absolute devotion - of the kind which involves never speaking to or appreciating anyone other than his partner -isn't his style either. He can be a charming flirt. He'll rarely show jealousy (all those sorts of darker emotions are kept locked up in the cupboard in the unconscious), and he doesn't expect you to, either. And it's impossible to keep him by your side at a party, because the whole point of a party is to talk to people. People means others besides yourself. Get used to it.
Words fascinate him. Emotions do too, but they need to be expressed gracefully and discussed with detachment. He can be sensitive and compassionate, and he has the rare gift of being able to put himself in another person's place and understand why they're feeling as they do. But being shouted at or deluged with tears and soggy handkerchiefs isn't his idea of a pleasant way to spend an evening. The more articulate you are, the better he likes it - although constant nagging, complaining and criticising don't go over too well.
If you have a complaint to make, or you want him to change something, tell him calmly, coolly, and logically, and be fair about it. He's pretty fair himself about acknowledging his own shortcomings. Communicate, rather than emoting. He'll listen, and because he's flexible and not encased with stubborn pride, he's capable of a sincere apology and a genuine effort to sort through his share of the problem. Even better, write him a witty letter. He does have a thing about writing - love notes, stories, letters, jokes, elegant e-mails.
Although he may avoid heavy emotional discussions, he has a sharp and lightning-quick grasp of human behaviour. After all, he spends a lot of his time observing people. He may understand you better than you think.
The Gemini man has a kind of cosmopolitan panache and a polished and versatile mind. The Gemini man often has a highly developed aesthetic sense, too, and appreciates elegance, refinement and style. If you want to be physically swept off your feet and dragged by the hair to his cave, try another sign.
The Gemini man needs an interesting partner. That doesn't mean you have to be a brilliant intellect. But you need to have a mind that is alive. Talk to him all day about your aches and pains or what the baby ate, and you're asking for trouble. Beware if you catch him spending hours surfing the net instead of talking to you, because the butterfly may be preparing to take off.
What makes his moods and evasions tolerable is the fact that he's really, really interesting. To some people that might not sound like much. But to those who have had quite enough of dull people living dull lives, where imagination never takes wing and humour never sparkles, Gemini is like a draught of the elixir. He reminds you that life is new and fun and fascinating. Spend some time around him, and you might even discover you've grown wings yourself.
