When two people with different personalities join forces and decide to be a couple, sparks may fly. But when two people with star signs in the same two adjacent signs of the Zodiac – Cancer and Gemini – come together, it can be a fascinating combination indeed. Those two star signs lie right next to each other in the Horoscope, and could be said to be next of kin. But despite their similarities, these two zodiac signs have enough differences that both partners can really learn from one another, as together they combine their ideas, dreams and goals for the future.
So, let’s take a closer look at some famous Cancer and Gemini couples. How do Cancer and Gemini relationships work? How happy are they?
Understanding the Characteristics of Each Sign
Before we can look at how Cancer and Gemini couples’ relationships work, it makes sense to understand the basic preferences and personalities of each sign.
Trait of Cancer:
Cancer is a Water sign, which means that they are sensitive, emotional and intuitive. Cancer likes to nurture and be nurtured in return. People born under this star sign are often also comfortable with their emotions, able to rapidly express their feelings through tears or laughter on a whim. Their home is their castle and so, if you want a special connection with them, you should better get to know their family.
Trait of Gemini:
Gemini is an Air sign, hence people born under this star sign tend to be thinkers. They love to analyze data, learn new facts and come up with theories. They are always open to challenges and thoughts, and love to share ideas and stories with people, as intellectual conversations are their forte.
Understanding Cancer and Gemini Couples
Now that you understand the basics of each sign, you can try to get a better idea of how Cancer and Gemini couples generally fit together.
A Gemini is the analytical type who can provide logic to a Cancerian’s feelings. Logical thinking is good, but of course, it can’t replace emotions. This can be a great combination since the sensitive Cancer can find understanding, guidance and assurance. And the intellectual Gemini can appreciate having a strong emotion as an anchor in their relationship, and to remind them that life is not all about facts.
On the other hand, the Gemini person might feel held back when they can’t express all their thoughts – perhaps the Cancer partner could become too sensitive, or change the subject before the Gemini person has a chance to present their ideas.
In some cases the Cancer person might find it difficult to keep up with the fast-paced conversational style of a Gemini. This can be a sticking point in the relationship too.
These are some of the challenges that must be faced by any Cancer and Gemini couple.

These pairs have certainly moved beyond the general cancer and gemini dynamics to create something lasting for them.
