Gemini + Cancer
As Cancer is a very sensitive and emotional sign, being ruled by the Moon, you may often not understand why they feel the way they do. Their moods can change frequently, and this will bother you.
You are a more intellectual and thoughtful person than Cancer, living in your head rather than your heart. You need to know the whys and wherefores. A Cancer won’t understand why you don’t feel what they feel.
There is an obvious chasm between your nature and Cancer’s nature, and the two of you will have to cross it before you can get anywhere in a relationship. But it may just be a matter of accepting that you are different!
Air + Water = Rain
This could play out as each of you taking on the tasks you have the talent for. This will bring out the best in each personality — Cancer can do well on the feeling tasks, and you will do well on the reasoning ones. If you do this, the relationship will stand a chance of going forward.
We would have to wonder whether this was the basic difference between Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise during their marriage. Nicole is a Gemini and would have dealt with things more rationally than Tom. Tom, being a Cancer, would have been moody and temperamental.
Physically you may find it difficult to train your mind into a less rational way of relating to the Cancerian. Cancer wants you to feel, and to connect with their feeling, but this may be too hard for you — you love to think and talk about your thoughts in the bedroom.
If Cancer doesn’t reciprocate, you may fall into the trap of thinking Cancer is denying your intellectual worthiness. This would be a mistake. It’s just those different styles and different needs raising their heads again.
Remember, there are non-verbal means of communicating. Cancer may just be the one to teach you a new level of understanding. Though not a perfect match, you can learn much from each other.
Cancerians born between 22 June and 3 July are linked to you financially, but will not offer you the emotional fulfilment you yearn for. A business arrangement with them may be the start of bigger and better things if you are patient enough to give this relationship a chance of maturing.
Cancerians born between 4 July and 13 July may be too intense for you — squabbles will erupt just when you think things are going well. There’s a very volatile element to these individuals. There may be no rhythm to their moods, no reason why they change so dramatically from one moment to the next. This will be a major challenge for you.
Those Cancers born between 14 July and 22 July are a little less difficult to handle and you could develop a high-quality friendship in this partnership. Generally, you’ll be able to quietly help develop the mental skills of Cancer. They, in turn, will teach you how to get in touch with your inner, emotional self.
