Scorpio - Friendship Compatibility - Scorpio and Gemini

When Gemini and Scorpio learn to glory in each other's differences, they can create a friendship
that is a force to be reckoned with. Scorpio is more focused and more determined than Gemini,
while Gemini is easily adaptable and more outgoing than Scorpio. Scorpions have an intense
loyalty to their friend while Gemini is more relaxed about life in general. Each has different
ultimate goals, but if they collaborate they can achieve anything.

This can be a very goal-oriented friendship. It tends to be highly passionate and often
argumentative, because Scorpio has a jealous nature, and Gemini can come across as uncaring.
Gemini also likes to debate just for the fun of it. Scorpio tends to be more patient but is also more possessive than Gemini. Despite their differences, both friends love risk and taking chances; this is not a boring friendship! Gemini and Scorpio can have lots of adventures together. At times, they can have difficulty understanding each other, because Gemini is an extrovert, up front and open, while Scorpio is more mysterious. Both need to sit down at the bargaining table every once in a while and work out a peace treaty!

Gemini is ruled by the Planet Mercury, and Scorpio is dually ruled by the Planets Mars and Pluto. Gemini's excellent communicative abilities balance the strife that can arise from the smoldering, sometimes emotionally inaccessible Scorpio. Mars also represents passion, so Scorpio's energy fuels an active and exciting time together. Both enjoy challenge, so heated debate will not scare off either one -- making up can be twice as fun! Pluto adds an extra intensity to this dynamic. Gemini is an Air Sign, and Scorpio is a Water Sign. These two elements can be a great combination if they work together, using emotion and intellect to get things done. Scorpio is a strategist and can help Gemini slow down and learn how to plan battles before jumping into them. Gemini teaches Scorpio to let go and move on when their efforts are thwarted. Scorpio can be emotionally manipulative, too much Water dampening Gemini's enthusiasm. Conversely, too much Air can stir up the Water and create rough sailing for the relationship. Gemini and Scorpio must cooperate instead of working at cross purposeses to maintain their balance.

Gemini is a Mutable Sign, and Scorpio is a Fixed Sign. Gemini allows Scorpio the space to do
things just for the experience, rather than always having an agenda in mind. Scorpio can lead
Gemini toward stabilizing and finishing things rather than jumping around without completing
anything. Both are attached and devoted to each other, and when they can understand that they can enjoy a fulfilling friendship -- Gemini providing the reasoning and brain power and Scorpio as the passionate, emotional leader -- they can accomplish a great deal together.

The best aspect of the Gemini-Scorpio friendship is the strength they have when they function as a unit. They can champion any cause they choose and obtain any goal. They are both winners, and they won't give up, making theirs a friendship that never settles for second best.
