Capricorn and Gemini breakups

This couple is like an old lady and a little kid. One feels like she’s been through it all, and the other can’t get enough! Slow and fast, grounded and scattered … what can possibly keep these two together?

Yes, we are more than our Sun signs, and any number of planetary combinations can compensate for this mix-up. But it’s hard not to rubberneck when passing a collision between a Capricorn and a Gemini.

These two signs are quincunx each other — an off-center 150-degree angle that makes it hard for both signs to see eye-to-eye. Cap is a cardinal (initiating) Earth sign, Gemini is a mutable (dispersing) Air sign. They’re incompatible by both element and mode.

However a Cap and Gemini get together, it’s easy to see why they may not last as a couple. Capricorn has a clear goal in sight, and is focused and dedicated in her path towards attaining it. Gemini is an ADD kid in a candy shop, so excited by all the different flavors that he can’t stay in one place for more than a moment.

Both signs have their strengths, but by the end of a relationship, they’ll only see each other’s faults. Gemini will resent Capricorn for her inhibitions and rigidity, while Cap will look down on Gemini’s lack of focus and inability to commit.

After the ambulance has departed, Gemini will dish to his buddies how long it took for Cap to warm up in bed, while Capricorn will share with her closest confidante that she felt more like a parent than a partner.

  1. im a gemini by the way

  2. I am a gemini woman with venus in cancer makes me over emotional i dated a capicorn for a month yes they are control freaks but if you don it to them they shit down this one would hide his past and vanish when i needed him much since the break up hr has used his words to hurt me persaonlly they are not meant for us

  3. i am a gemini and my biggest love was a capricorn. his Asc was in my 5th house. my moon is in capricorn conjuct his sun. we had never been in romantic relationship and that was my painful wound for years. but that was because my venus was on his MC. astrology is more complicated than sun signs compatibility (and than my short comment, too).

  4. I am a Capricorn woman by the way and was and still is in love with the Gemini man an still am The thing I loved about him he was very romantic like I wanted it and that I deserved everything was so right in our connection with love romantic but the attitude and the disrespect of a Gemini to a Capricorn was a very horrible thing it’s been two days now that we have split up but it seems like he was so hard to commit and make me worth his time he would always worry about what other people was doing and would do for him he would run one other people would say run but would never run when I needed him the most he was the one who told me he love me first it took me six months to sleep with him he was also a married man but told me his marriage was going downhill and also had told me that he has talk to other women during his marriage but none of them has gone as far as our was with just two days ago he said my attitude and my negativity wasn’t going to work but what I was trying to get him to understand was I knew everything about him and what he was lying to me about he was lying I told him about himself and he did not like it I wanted that love I wanted that relationship I wanted that last I wanted commitment but he was not understanding of it all at all

  5. I’m so sorry it didn’t wrk out

  6. in my opinion overall and all I had experience I am gemini I would say gemini and capricorn never gonna work from the start.. it just like that.. capricorn man always look good and handsome to me but they just boring… they shy and can’t communicate … I love to joke around but he hmm reserved and quiet
