Cancers are very protective of their private sphere and are always on guard when it comes to personal matters.  Caring and home loving Crabs prefer a quiet evening alone with family or friends.

The tendencies to be pessimistic and clingy in their relationships run high.  Since these people are very emotional, Crabs find it hard to be objective when it comes to love and refuse to let go of people close to their hearts even when it’s the best thing to do.  

Their hearts rule over their minds more often than not.  They are most compatible with people who share their views and approaches in life.  Cancers are well matched with other water signs as well as earth signs who share their views on life and love.

Gemini Man And Cancer Woman Compatibility

Witty and charming Gemini man will be able to impress shy Cancer. He can talk for hours, and she will not get bored in his company. It is important to note that he values his freedom and will guard his space because Geminis don’t appreciate any form of invasion.  

Anyone who dares restrict his freedom will scare him away.  On the other hand, she keeps her personal matters sealed and it will take time before he gets to know her better.  

The Crab will be able to decipher the Twins’ multiple personalities while he will be able to tolerate her moodiness.  A Cancer woman is a basket full of conflicting emotions. She can be headstrong, submissive, up tight and passive, all in the same time frame. When in love, she can be clingy and possessive.  

Crabs fall hard and choose a partner who can understand how they feel and think. Fickle or overly ambitious partners do not sit well with this very sensitive lady who yearns for a long lasting relationship. In a commitment she will be a devoted partner, doting parent and loyal spouse.

 

Gemini Woman and Cancer Man Compatibility

Gemini woman moves as if she has wings.  She lives to explore and shines best when in the company of people who are as adventurous.  It is nearly impossible to predict what this lady will be up to next because she must always be on the go and not confined to a monotonous cycle.  

A homebody will not impress a Gemini.  He should be ready with a list of destinations she hasn’t been to and must be able to take her there.  Being an Air sign, she’s on the lookout for someone who can conquer her first through the mind.  This fearless lady always gets attracted to cool, daring and exciting men.

Aquarius man is exciting, witty and very sociable. Just like her, he sees life as one big adventure and will be able to keep up with Gemini’s pace.  These two will hit it off the first time they meet since both can engage in intellectual conversations. He seeks to learn something new every day while she lives to discover.  

Gemini And Cancer Compatibility Verdict

Magnetic attractions will be evident between these extremely different personalities. It is possible that these two can link up on an emotional level. However, in the long run their different approach to life will escalate and prove that they are poles apart.  

Gemini is an extrovert while Cancer is an introvert.  The latter wants to stay home next to one he/she loves while the other wants to be out and about chasing one adventure to the next.  The twins require breathing space while the crab gets clingy when in love. Cancers focus on security while Gemini thrives on variety.  

If ever they decide to take the relationship a notch higher, Cancer would have to bend backwards and adjust to Gemini’s nature.  It would be difficult for this couple to make things work even if they agree to meet halfway early on in the relationship.  Cancer will likely hold on to the relationship and look beyond its imperfections but Gemini will become too restless for comfort and break free.  

My Verdict:  Gemini and Cancer are better off as friends.
