What makes them?
The potential to host a hell of a social gathering… time and time again. Gemini Woman and Capricorn Man are two visionaries who can agree to share the credit – it could make for extremely strong political moves as a middle-aged power couple.
What breaks them?
A young Gemini Woman will find Capricorn too cumbersome and serious, he will be too threatened by her superficial zest to even stick by her.
Can it work?
If the timing is right, both can find a suitable degree of happiness. Good second marriage material, if nothing more.
Successful Gemini Woman and Capricorn Man romances often have a May-December romantic theme to their undercurrent. A meeting at different stages in their life to set the stage for their unlikeliest of meetings as equals.
Truth be told, as far as Gemini Woman sees it there is no undercurrent nor should there ever be – should would like plausible deniability for whatever she really feels and she’ll get more of the ‘father-daughter’ dynamic in this romance than she bargained.
It’s a romance where her playing up to her child-like streak could backfire into winning the most controlling side of Capricorn Man usually reserved for those he holds in contempt. But in romance, he just doesn’t know any other way to be when a woman brings out this side of him.
Just as Air flies with moderating degrees of peace over the Earth’s surface, Gemini will not want to be disturbed by the final detail of how Capricorn’s machinations keep them afloat, even if she will be genuinely appreciative of the opportunity for them to prosper together all the same.
Capricorn men have a tendency to be abrasive and rude to others who do not uphold the same high standards they do. If they learn a little tact in private, as far as their Gemini woman is concerned, they could hit the rare side of Gemini that finds herself ready and willing to learn some responsibility and duty in life. If anything, it’s a different flavour from what everyone else has offered her before.
The only way these two can persist with this affair is if Gemini Woman insists for the both of them that they’re onto a good thing. Just be warned, Capricorn Man, she won’t be held to rights over these words later if he tries to carve them in stone.
Gemini Woman is never abrasive (at least not overtly), very engaging and finds it easy to forgive others because she is quicker to forgive herself of any mistakes. She can make Capricorn Man come off as looking too serious or firm in his bargaining for romance. She would rather he lighten up and realize it just isn’t going to happen all on his terms.
Capricorn Man finds her airy nature threatening to say the last, she’s the big warning sign he’s been exercising caution against his whole life. But he loves the challenge – the sum of most of his fears. He has the ability and know-how to make any woman weigh up her decision carefully before ever calling it quits.
If Gemini Woman and Capricorn Man run into one another too early in life, it can be before she has found greater substance in her character. This is both a blessing and a curse for them both. A blessing since healthy fears should never be prolonged or long-term – and a young Gemini has no interest in prolonging the suffering of any partner.
But it is also a curse since her insight and intuition, her mercurial ‘know-how’ of social behaviours just aren’t enough to keep a Capricorn Man interested in the challenge – he can do all the hob-nobbing at the parties by himself if he really wanted to and he needs someone who is more open to sticking around, building bonds on a more level playing field (or a field tilted in his favour).
With more experience under her belt, a more evolved Gemini Woman can use her considerable vision to help Capricorn far beyond any obstacles between him and his goals. Just be sure to let him have the credit and initiative, which no mutable sign has a problem doing but Gemini may have a problem keeping the details of their shared success at her discretion.
They can both benefit from this kind of partnership, as Capricorn has a healthy habit of bringing back home more resources to propel Gemini onto new adventures and discoveries. She will be happy to have him along for the ride as long as he remembers to lighten up. Unfortunately, this does not come easily to the Capricorn male in his youth. It is as difficult a task for him as it may be for Gemini to stop, listen and reflect upon herself.
Capricorn Man may lack the voice with which to hold her attention for long, unless he has been through and seen it all himself. If he should find himself battle-weary and simply resolved to enjoy the justice phase of the life he has built for himself in middle age, he will find the differences in Gemini Woman as a welcome distraction and much-needed change from the routine he has engrained into his usual circle of family and friends.
It is a relationship where a certain degree of distance may become comfortable commonplace. Neither sex nor friendship will matter too much, even if both will be above adequate, and timing will count for everything. Meet each other too early in life, and it simply will not be worth the headaches. Beyond this, being two creatures who naturally share a common interest and intrigue for life’s big picture, they could be worse off if they were to give up and look somewhere else.
