What makes us?
They’re big believers in freedom at all costs, taking big risks together to prove that where no one else would. Both signs are about duality. More specifically: Gemini warns the real meaning of a message is lost in its translation (3rd house), whereas the Sagittarius warns the real meaning of nature is lost in its perception.
As opposites, you’ll want to avoid getting lost in translation with each other. Unless you just really, really want to live out your Bill Murray-Scalett Johansson moment together in a foreign country. The less words, the better either way. You can both help each find peace and not get stuck on the fork in the road between truth and lies, like no other couple can do for one another.
What breaks us?
This is the least convincing opposite of opposite signs, to me. Opposite is all about projection, but a lot of what could stir up blame, loss and projection here gets lost in all the duality. In real-life terms: We don’t see Geminis and Sags get worked up over each other nearly enough as you would expect opposites to do. Where there’s usually passion and make-up or break-up sex with opposites, these two like to play it cool with indifference. Is that even fun?
As with all opposite signs, you find your ideal partner reflected in the self-image of the other. Gemini’s house of self-image (1st) overlaps with Sag’s house of partnership (7th). (This can change if you know your full chart, and your rising sign). A potentially strong sexual connection means everything about personal freedom to express yourselves is in the balance here. You both care that your partner allows you to express yourself how you want, when you want.
If you misunderstand each other, and take the talking too far – you can feel like you question how you express yourself, considering the other person doesn’t seem to give your voice any credit – when they are the one person who should really be listening intently, picking out all the truth from between the bluffing. As mentioned earlier, if you both make one another feel lost in translation then you may just give up trying to really reach one another at all.
It can work but, after years of chart readings, it’s a 50/50 from us to you both on this one. Remember, you’re both Mutable: you will both go through phases where you seek to feel like you’ve got the right to experience your emotions without justifying them or search for consistency (in general, not just with your relationship). You just want to see your changes in how you react to old situations happen, and process them one by one. That takes both Gemini and Sag not questioning each other on every little moment of change, but rather just observing each other respectfully.
What we’re getting at here is: more listening, less questions (both ways). There will be time for the right questions – the ones that matter – later. Read more tips below.
With opposite signs, there’s a natural struggle to accept their own individual selves – let alone accept one another. You’ll want to project all of your worst flaws onto one another: Geminis claims Sagittarius are never really there (but frankly, Geminis are guilty of hiding in plain sight). Sagittarius will claim Geminis have an explanation for everything (really, Sag? Have you heard yourself try to explain everyone else’s problems away? Try stepping out of yourself some time to actually watch yourself doing it).
When observation in perfect sync with genuine vulnerability, this relationship can be incredibly accepting and pick out well-timed moments to savour that the rest of the crowd will miss. But, when mistimed and misfired, it’s a lot of distance and cold war drama, over nothing.
Figure out how strong your Jupiter leads your Sag’s chart; and how strong your Mercury leads your Gemini’s chart. Both Jupiter and Mercury only rule Aries and Libra by day so, if you are dating a Sag or Gemini born in the nighttime, the energy throughout their chart can be spread very differently to what’s typically written about either of these signs in love. Figure out the rest of your ten planets if you’re having big differences and misunderstandings with your Sag or Gemini.
