Here’s a combustible mix. Gemini’s airy curiosity fans the flames of Aries’ initiative. This couple will certainly maintain each other’s interest, but they may have trouble settling their frenetic energy into a structured relationship.
Sun in Aries wants to experience risk. His purpose is to build courage in all areas of life, including his relationships. He can be blunt and pushy, but this just means he’s asking to be challenged. Instinctive action is what drives him, and he has no patience for subtleties. Sun in Aries wants a partner who forces him to experience extremes. If he’s not challenged, he’ll create conflict with temper tantrums or pointless arguments.
Moon in Gemini needs to bond by communicating. Sharing experiences with a companion is what she’s all about, and this does not necessarily mean deep, emotional discussions. For Moon in Gemini, lighter feels more comfortable because she needs to learn at an accelerated pace. This can make her a restless, emotionally scattered partner if her relationship becomes stale.
These two will set off on an adventure that never ceases. Sun in Aries’ drive for challenge will be easily supported by Moon in Gemini’s need for variety. She’ll keep him guessing as she regularly switches emotional channels. Moon in Gemini may frustrate Sun in Aries when she wants to talk (about everything) and he wants to take action. But Gemini will be unperturbed by Aries’ bluntness because she intellectualizes her emotions. As long as she’s given a forum to say what she feels, they’ll quickly move through most disagreements.
The issue with this pairing is lack of stability. Unless there are grounding influences in their charts, this couple may never settle into a long-term relationship. But stability isn’t for everyone; sometimes two people just need an encounter to wake each other up.
