Mars in Virgo’s efforts to do things just so will feel restrictive to Moon in Gemini. Gemini needs multiple choices, while Virgo is threatened by ambiguity. However, both these Mercury-ruled signs thrive on information, although they use it in different ways. The sparky tension between them may create enough interest to keep them together.
Mars in Virgo has a yearning for perfection, fueled by his mastery of facts and details. He feels energized when he’s making things better for himself and his partner. Mars in Virgo’s ideal relationship would endlessly refine itself, achieving greater standards of excellence (through the perfect application of knowledge). The reality may disappointment him, but he also craves that disappointment; a relationship isn’t worthwhile if things comes too easily.
Moon in Gemini needs a constant influx of new experiences. And she needs to discuss it all with her partner. She feels safe if she can analyze and categorize her feelings, but she also needs those categories to be open-ended. Rigid boundaries make her nervous. Moon in Gemini thrives on change, which can result in shifting emotional states. For her lover, it may seem as if she flutters from one feeling to the next, never resting long enough to engage on a deep level. The truth is, deep emotional exploration makes her uncomfortable. However, she is more than willing to talk about anything.
Mars in Virgo’s earnest helpfulness may amuse Moon in Gemini, but she’ll quickly feel smothered by his insistence on the right way to do things. Virgo will be frustrated by Gemini’s constantly shifting moods. However, Mars in Virgo is always up for a challenge, and may see Gemini as someone who’s ripe for improvement. And Moon in Gemini may have her curiosity piqued by Virgo’s eccentric precision and use of information. While there will be a continuous level of irritation between them, the tension could translate to chemistry. They certainly won’t be bored with each other.
