With few exceptions, the relationship between Gemini and Cancer can be characterized by one word— disappointing. The truth is that while this relationship will likely get off to a great start, it’s unlikely that this positivity can be maintained over the long term.

In the beginning, Gemini will find Cancer new and interesting. And Cancer will likely reflect these emotions back at Gemini, and feel like they’re establishing a real connection with each other.

But as time goes on and Cancer gets attached to Gemini, Gemini will start to long for something new and exciting. They’ll be looking ahead to their next adventure. And Cancer, feeling that they’re losing their partner, will try to hang on even tighter. This will cause Gemini to feel like their freedom is being restricted, and somewhere around this point, the relationship will start to splinter, and ultimately break.

Communication & Intellect

There’s no doubt that both Gemini and Cancer are expressive partners who don’t hesitate to communicate what they’re thinking and feeling. They’re also two very emotionally intelligent signs who aren’t the type to repress or dismiss their feelings, like Virgo or Aquarius.

While these two will have open communication with each other, that doesn’t mean it will be an easy road. They’re both prone to mood swings and are often ruled by their emotions.

The problem with these two is that they’re inconsistent. Some days, there won’t be any arguments, and the two will get along splendidly. Other days, they’ll both be feeling less than their best, which means the slightest thing could lead to a fight. And then, of course, there will be days when one partner is feeling up, and the other is down. This mismatch is also very likely to cause tension between the two. And since they both tend to take things to heart, their interactions with each other might result in hurt feelings.

The only thing this couple can do is work on their patience and tolerance. They need to practice understanding with one another and recognize that while there will be bad days, there’s no need to make them worse by letting feelings and egos get in the middle.

Emotions & Sex

The truth is that Gemini and Cancer make for a very unstable relationship. This is because they’re both emotional signs, and they tend to have some deep-seated difficulties within them. Gemini is experiencing a constant inner dialogue between their two halves which can cause a lot of stress and anxiety since they tend to be contradicting.

Meanwhile, Cancer has a tendency to self-blame and feel insecure. They project these insecurities outwards, and Gemini won’t always handle it well. The reality is that both of these signs would do better with partners who are earth signs because they’d bring a significant level of stability to the relationship.

Furthermore, intimacy is challenging between these two. They’re both sensitive partners, so one wrong move— even accidentally— will send them ten steps backward on their road to establishing trust with one another.

Both of these signs need to feel safe and secure before moving forward on an intimate level with their partners, yet neither of them is great at initiating a climate of safety and security. Their relationship is a hurricane of emotions, and this is a huge hurdle for them to overcome.

Gemini’s number one value is their independence and freedom. They don’t want to feel like someone is restricting them, and if they do, they’ll immediately take action to restore their sense of freedom.

This is a serious problem when it comes to them being with Cancer because Cancer needs a partner whose affections and sentiments for them are unwavering. This is another reason why Cancer would do better with a partner who is an earth sign. They need to feel that their partner’s devotion to them is constant and unfaltering— otherwise, they feel insecure and anxious.

When Cancer realizes that Gemini can’t provide this, rather than move on, there’s a strong likelihood that they’ll become even more clingy. This reaction will make Gemini feel even more entrapped, and their attempts to free themselves will grow harsher and more intense. This whole situation puts these two on a collision course unlike any other.

Cancer values trust and safety, which they are unlikely to get from Gemini. Gemini tends to experience the feeling that they’re somehow missing their other half. As a result, they’re always trying to meet new people and make new friends, in hopes that they’ll find what they’re looking for. Cancer will take this personally, convincing themselves that Gemini is behaving this way because they’re not enough for them. No matter what Gemini has to say, it’s almost impossible that they’ll get Cancer to accept that this is just how they are as a person. In the end, it’s nearly impossible for them to reconcile this core issue.


When their relationship is fresh and new, it’s very likely that Gemini and Cancer will find a lot of fun things to do together. Since the relationship is still unexplored, Gemini will be very interested in it, and will be radiating positive energy. Cancer has a tendency to be a mirror of the people around them, so they will thrive off of Gemini’s energy, reflecting it back and having fun.

So in these early days, the two will probably find themselves enjoying plenty of adventurous activities together: traveling, hiking, dancing, cooking.

But as time passes, Gemini will start to feel the new and shiny feeling wearing off, and Cancer will be expecting their partner to start settling down with them. Cancer is ultimately a homebody, and they’ll feel better if they can establish a comfortable routine with Gemini.

But this is the opposite of what Gemini desires, and they’ll start to realize that they don’t have many things in common, and finding activities they both enjoy will become a challenge. For this pair, it may be best to consider just being friends.
