When cosmic forces unite Venus in Gemini and Mars in Capricorn, fireworks don’t necessarily go off at first (unless other aspects in the charts say otherwise). Instead, this couple may have to learn how to appreciate each other’s gifts over time. A slow, constant effort to connect and understand can help them to find hidden fruits in their partnership that may not be evident at first glance.
Intelligence and wit are the key to making it with Venus in Gemini. This curious, flirty Venus loves nothing more than to be mentally stimulated, since the brain, more than any other body part, is what really turns her on. She is always interested in what’s new, whether it be a person, place or thing. This can make her a bit fickle in love, as she darts off like a butterfly to explore every flower, but she has been known to commit when the timing is right.
Serious, thoughtful Mars in Capricorn may seem a little boring at first, but his earthy sexiness comes out when he is with the right person. With a practical approach to love and sex, he only invests in a person if he thinks they may be a contender. Otherwise, he can be a “love ‘em and leave ‘em” type, until he’s ready to settle down.
Venus in Gemini is intrigued by Mars in Capricorn’s reliability and practical nature, but she may resist his attempts to schedule and plan their time together as a couple. Mars in Capricorn can be energized by Venus in Gemini’s intellect and curiousity, but he may also sometimes crave silence. With time and maturity, this couple can arrive at a place of mutual appreciation and understanding.
