Gemini is the first of the Air signs and can feel stifled by too much water. Pisces is the last of the Water signs and gets nervous around too much air.
Gemini is fast on his feet, quick-witted, and adapts to situations with ease. Pisces is a deep-thinker, intuitive and emotional. At first glance it appears that these two-star signs are like chalk and cheese.
But have you ever watched the way a kite soars and dips in the wind? Doesn’t it remind you of the flashing light of a shoal of fish in the ocean? And don’t forget that Gemini is the sign of the Twins and Pisces is always depicted with two fish. Perhaps these signs have more things in common after all.
Before I talk about Gemini and Pisces compatibility let’s look at their different signs.
Geminis are the eternal explorers of the world, both in terms of knowledge and travel. They are extroverted, sociable and curious. These star signs are adaptable, quick-witted, restless, and changeable.
Geminis love to talk. That’s all thanks to their ruling planet Mercury – the great communicator. They are always searching for the next big adventure. This is because they’re easily bored and because they hate to be fenced in or tied down.
Gemini men will have lots of casual relationships before they settle down with the right woman. Because of their dual nature they can end a relationship quickly and without regret or emotion. Don’t forget they have two faces and one is always turned to the future.
Gemini’s negative traits are indecision, blunt nature, uncommitted, shallow, and cold.
Now let’s look at Pisces
Pisces are emotional deep thinkers. These are the dreamers of the Zodiac. They are the ones pondering how to attain spiritual enlightenment. These are the introverts, empaths, gentle beings who are caring and compassionate towards others.
Pisces are intuitive souls and can often have an instinctual feeling of another person’s mood or emotion. They are wise beyond their years and incurable romantics at heart. Pisces tend to fall in love early on in life and remain with that partner.
This is one Zodiac sign that puts their needs before others. However, this can lead some of them to take on a martyr role. In these cases they become bitter and resentful of their sacrifice.
Pisces’ negative traits are self-pity, pessimism, timidity, victimhood, and not living in the real world.
So that’s a little insight into the star signs of Pisces and Gemini, but what about their compatibility as a couple? Are their individual characteristics a good match? Or, are they complete opposites?
Let’s examine Gemini man and Pisces woman together.
You’ll often find Gemini men taking center stage. This man will be enjoying the fact that he’s got the crowd’s attention. Pisces will be at the back of that crowd, pondering his every word. Watching his body language. Analyzing his stories. Do they ring true she wonders to herself?
Before she has time to come to a conclusion this enigmatic guy has left the building. But this is something the twins and the fish have in common.
Pisces is equally evasive as our Gemini friend. It could quite easily have been Gemini watching the crowd, noticing this mysterious woman. She catches his eye like no other. There’s something different about her he thinks. But before he’s finished entertaining the crowd she’s vanished.
You see both Gemini and Pisces are elusive characters. Try holding onto a fish in the water. It’s wriggling and slippery in your fingers. Now watch the speed of a hummingbird’s wings beat against the air as it darts in and out of a flower’s petals.
Remember, Gemini’s ruling planet is Mercury – the Messenger of the Gods. And God’s messengers have winged feet, which is exactly how Gemini feels. He could not stay in one place if you tied him down.
Well, there is one thing that will attract them to each other, and that’s knowledge and understanding. You see Pisceans are the old souls of the Zodiac. On the other hand, Geminis are eternal inquisitors.
Pisces have the answers to Gemini’s questions about life, the world and the universe. This draws Gemini to Pisces like a moth to a flame. But this doesn’t mean that Pisces has the answers to everything. She is still searching for the truth about herself.
Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac and their learning revolves around the spiritual realm. Thanks to their ruling planet of Neptune they are always looking inwards. They ask questions such as ‘Who am I?’ ‘Why am I here?’ ‘What is my purpose?’
Geminis don’t think that anyone can discover who they are by sitting around and navel-gazing. Get out there and explore the world they say! Set yourself new challenges! Learn a skill or meet new people!
You could say that Geminis are the extroverts of the Zodiac and that Pisces are the introverts. This is partly true but not the whole truth.
Pisces may seem older and wiser but they can be plagued with self-doubt. This is something Gemini never suffers from. Geminis have an analytical mind that can logically strip bare a problem with no emotion. Sometimes Pisces need this type of tough love to be able to move forward.
But there are other times when this kind of critical analysis is too brutal, particularly for a star sign like Pisces woman. After all, like all fish, Pisceans have a soft underbelly that’s easily ripped open. That’s exactly what it feels like to a Pisces woman when Gemini stomps on her dreams.
When it comes to a love relationship, what is the compatibility of Gemini man and Pisces woman?
It is more likely that Pisces woman will be attracted to her Gemini man. After all, most of us are attracted to Gemini men. Perhaps it’s the way he’s always surprising her with trips to unknown places. Or maybe it’s just the way his mind is always zigzagging bouncing around different theories and ideas.
Both will have a thirst for knowledge, for understanding the greater things in life. For Gemini man this discovery involves embarking on traveling the globe. For Pisces, the journey is closer to home. But neither will restrict the other’s journey and for Gemini that is hugely important.
Gemini is the King of Communication. He has Mercury to thank for that. But communicating is not all about talking; it also involves listening and understanding. And this is where Pisces is Queen. Pisces women know what you’re thinking and feeling before it has even registered in your thoughts.
For quick-witted Gemini men, this is something of an invasion of privacy. Sure, he’s mentally agile and the master of the stinging response, but this woman is witch-like in the way she deftly delves into his inner thoughts. The problem is that delicate Pisces might not be able to handle Gemini’s sharp barbs.
For Gemini man, what you see is what you get. They like to turn everything up to eleven. Colors are brighter when they’re around. Sound is crisper and deeper. Textures are lush and lavish. Everything is just, well, – more.
On the other hand, you have Pisces. Pisces believe less is more. These deep, dreamy and fragile creatures are masters of hiding their emotions. In fact, they’re much more concerned with how you are feeling.
It is here that the average Pisces woman will struggle. Sex for Pisces is an opportunity in a relationship to create a deeper understanding of their partner. It is a chance to go beyond physical love and delve into the very soul of the person they love.
Now, try telling that to Gemini man. Imagine at the height of passion, Pisces woman looks into her Gemini man’s eyes and asks "What are you thinking?" He looks back at her, his eyes bright with excitement and says "I saw an advert for a safari holiday where you can get up close and personal with the wild animals. I think we should go."
Pisces woman folds her head into his chest. Her eyes are also bright, but with tears. She knows now that this is no soul mate. That he’ll never get to share the wonderful bond she knows is possible between two loving spirits of the universe.
Pisces woman is soulful, empathic, introspective, quietly thoughtful, and needy at times. Then there’s a Gemini man. Loud, gregarious, extroverted, sociable, loquacious and just a little bit shallow.
Just as water can turn the air around it into a dampening fog, so can Pisces dampen the spirits of Gemini. He will find her deep moods draining and become irritated with her.
Just as too much air around water can churn it up into tsunamis and hurricanes, so can the energy of Gemini feel like too much for gentle Pisces.
All in all, this is not a match made in heaven.
But, as always in life and love, there are rare exceptions. There are some Geminis that have learned to be patient with their Pisces women. These guys have a partner that understands him better than anyone.
There are also some Pisces women that know their Gemini man will sometimes have moments when he says hurtful things he doesn't necessarily mean. By accepting that she gets to view the world through his wonderfully rose-tinted glasses.
Gemini is an extrovert so this sign might be too outgoing for the gentle, delicate Pisces. Pisces is emotional, spiritual, intuitive, and empathic. Pisces focuses inwards. Gemini is outgoing, sociable, and genial. Gemini focuses outwards. However, they are both inquisitive signs and this will initially attract them. However, they are so different this attraction may not last long.
This pairing is not the best, however, we are only looking at their Sun signs. If they have Moons in complementary signs this could balance out their differences. For example, if Gemini has a moon in another water sign such as Cancer or Scorpio this will increase his sensitivity. Likewise, if Pisces has a moon in Libra or Aquarius her confidence will grow.
A Pisces is attracted to learning, knowledge, and a higher level of spiritual awareness. Therefore, Pisces will naturally be attracted to Gemini because this sign is always full of interesting ideas about life. The way to captivate a Pisces however is to work on the self, to attain a higher level of spirituality.
Geminis are always looking for a captivated audience, one that listens to their every word. Pisces make really good listeners. They are not natural talkers themselves. They prefer someone else to be in the limelight, which is perfect for the extroverted Gemini.
No, not in the mildest sense. These are two opposites of the Zodiac spectrum. But nothing is set in stone. Remember, we are talking about a person’s Sun sign here. There are many other aspects that make up a Zodiac sign. And they do say that opposites attract.
