How To Get Along: Gemini and Leo
How can a fixed sign and a mutable one get along?
The Twin and the Lion
Leo is a fire sign. Gemini is an air sign.
Leo is fixed. Gemini is mutable.
This makes these signs quite different. But what they share is extroversion and a smiling affability. Leo is grinning because they believe their ruler, the sun, has conferred upon them a kind of royal title. Gemini is breezy and freedom-loving. Affability and extroversion are their “modus operandi.” It’s the way Gemini gets through their day. You can’t live through freedom and not be smiling.
Leo’s fixity makes them stand tall in the golden grass and bid their pride to come around them. They want to be thought of as leaders, even if they have not been given the title yet. Geminis are not the kind to gather around a Leo and pay homage to them. However, if a loving Leo and a warm Gemini find each other appealing, there is nothing necessarily hard and in place that would mean they would not have a chance. Their outer personalities would make a public image that could sparkle. Their personal and career goals would dictate their relationship’s agenda, as well as their feelings of intimacy.
A positive statement of possibility would come off like a press release for these two charmers. Leo, loving the lights, and Gemini, moving from light to light, present themselves as a union, company, couple, and friendship – with the intent of celebrating success and a new vision of (whatever they might plan together). They would need the hard workers of the horoscope for a company, but a relationship as a couple could spell limelight and honors for these two.
This relationship could feel fated. They could be magnetically attracted to each other and look at big lessons to learn from each other. The Gemini has Leo’s number. But the Gemini can admire and praise the Leo for its life-fulfilling vibrancy. Leo, knowing that Gemini knows the truth about Leo (that it is just human and not royalty), can love Gemini for the tolerance and also the admiration that Gemini carries for the Leo.
Lions can roar. But lions don’t really want the roaring to lead to a mauling. Gemini can parry and thrust and cut like a butcher, but Gemini has no fun fighting. At best, they can admire their cleverness but still feel bad about the fight. The way to bring solution finding to these two is to tone down the noise and the verbal energy. Leo can moderate the ego, and Gemini can close the fast-talking lips, and then they can get down to issues.
Life, in the end, is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks, “Can we be bored together over the long term?” Even in the most pessimistic outlook, Leo and Gemini would probably not grow bored. There is too much going on with Leo’s solar-powered outlook and Gemini’s mercurial fast-turning orbit to predict or declare a state of boredom. These two, as the years pass, would tend to create a lifestyle in which the goals of each were feeding the growth of each other. A breakup could occur, but long before boredom set in.
Keep Up the Interest Graph
Gemini and Leo would have little trouble keeping up the interest. Now, the roads that they would be on might be taking them in different directions, but that would be concerning their long-term purpose: “Stay together and stay interested, and we can do anything.”
Seven Year Itchiness
There are some signs that, by their nature, are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Leo could declare itself wronged and free at virtually any time. Leo has that sense of self-possession. Gemini, flying fast, could also opt for another. Yet, if these two were bound to each other and enchanted with one another, it could be a fascinating partnership.
Astrocompatibility Possibility Rating
65% Positive Long Term - 70% Short Term.
This would be all bold personality and magnetic romance in the beginning. If, as time passes, they grew together, the progress that they could make together might be surprisingly positive.

Alma b: The only way to do this is to find out the hour they were born and the city they were born in. Plus, obviously the birthday. If you can get that innocently or openly, I will do a comparison. If you wish, offer the service separately to them. Use this language: "I am getting this reading done for me. Its fascinating. Would you like it done for free?" Your issue is the intent of my book: "How to Get Along with all those Sun Signs".

I wish there was something like this for coworker relationships. I am a gemini working with a leo and we have had several conversations, although amiable on the surface, there is definitly a judgemental undertone. I want to get along with this person, i get along with everyone so it is confusing. Ive gotten along with with leo in the past and feel like there is this strange competiveness for our boss's (cancer) attention.

Dear SJ Abraham: Geography is sooooo physical. If you know what I mean. I do not have an answer for something so basic. Write good letters. Spend time on the phone. Try to sound agreeable, like you miss him, but not like you are going to die without him. He could find someone else. You too. Touching is one of the things geography prevents. Best to you.
SONIA RACHEL ABRAHAM on February 24, 2012:
Thanks Christopher! I totally go with your write up on these two sign's compatibility. And i can relate myself and my boyfriend with every point you had mentioned. I feel I am a typical gemini, and i had few broken relationship in the past, and its very true that i get bored easily. But this Leo guy I am in love with at present is totally different. I really want him in my life forever. But now its time for us to be in a long-distance relationship because of career commitments, so i am scared whether this would also turn out to be like my previous relationships. What do you suggest? What should i do to keep this bond strong? Let me tell you, he is very understanding, caring, trusts me a lot, loving, very funny n an extrovert (which i admire). It has almost been a year we are together now but still i have never felt even a pinch of boredom with him. So what do you think about this long distance relationship between us? Would it effect us by any chance and any suggestion to keep it alive forever?
