What makes us?
Leo holds the energy to uncap Gemini to the fullest (the question later is: will she take advantage of that like he wants her to?). Arguably no other sign taps a Gemini into their instincts like Leo does – this is one romance where he will see a picture clearly, with no talk of twins, duplicity or any of that involved here. It’s very single-minded romance for Gemini, and you’re both strong on intimacy if you want it – it’s right there on the table.
From Leo’s side, she’s always pictured having a friend like him – she enjoys his company and not just what he can do for her. There’s a lifetime charm in that much alone.
What breaks us?
I often write about how intimacy can either kill electricity, or complement it. Fine-tuning that in this relationship is your biggest obstacle on paper. No one wants to be sleeping with their best friend all the time, least of all Gemini once he’s been introduced to this new side of himself through Leo’s company. You’re going to want to be able to detach from one another in a while, put on a chase – a pursuit between strangers all over again. Rejuvenate your erotic attraction to one another – Leo, you’ll probably have to be a little more perceptive about Gemini’s dirty side; he’s reserved it for you. Frankly, he probably hasn’t wanted to explore that side to such a level before he met you.
Can it work between Leo Woman and Gemini Man ?
Your relationship has everything you need for it to work, at different stages in your life. Some romances, on paper, only look like they work at certain ages (mostly due to emotional patterns) in our adult lives, but Leo and Gemini is a couple for all seasons. I know I’ve made most of this relationship sound like Gemini is the saucepot of the two, but what I’m really looking to get across here (for Leo to understand) is you have to power to expose his vulnerability to a relationship; exposing him to a kind of commitment he’s probably never contemplated wanting before you both met. At no point does that guarantee you’ll both just have to sit there and let all of this come to you (and too often some women take this as a license to mother a man in a relationship – the quickest way to mess it up is pretending you have all the answers your partner does not, shutting down any chance at vulnerability).
It’s an opportunity between your two Sun houses – you mostly have to work for that opportunity to turn into something real.
What do we mean by Gemini vulnerability here? In Gemini’s house of everyday routine (Gemini 6th) is where Leo’s house of intimacy and secrets overlap (Leo 4th). End result? He’s more than ready and capable of building boundaries to protect her and their private time together, he’s the main protector of this relationship. It may be understated or an underhanded manner in which he goes about protecting it, but it’s there nonetheless – on paper, Gemini is the one to want to lock this good thing down. How many times will you hear that about a Gemini in astro relationship articles? Rarely ever.
Leo might undervalue that and switch up the pace on him from time to time. She could choose to trust the wrong people in his eyes, or simply throw him under the bus if she doesn’t get the kind of control she wants in this relationship. You can mistime your expectations to the point you misunderstand how important this love of yours is becoming, to one another. Timing your priorities and agreeing to move on them together becomes very important to a happy Leo-Gemini couple, here.
There are the other 9 Sun houses of yours overlapping (and the sex thing we mentioned earlier) than you can get into with a full reading with me, but this is all the time we have for on a blog post here. If you are still hesistant about getting a reading online, and want to do the hard yards yourself, my pointers are below.
Figure out how strong your Mercury leads your Gemini’s chart; and how strong your Sun leads your Leo’s chart. Mercury rules Gemini by day only, so if you are dating a Gemini born at night or a Leo with weak Sun energy in their houses, their personality inside a relationship can reflect 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 Gemini or Leo.
