To understand the power between Gemini and Scorpio, consider what both signs are. Gemini, for example, is a variable wind sign ruled by the communication planet Mercury. Symbolically represented by twins, Gemini represents a dual nature – and their tendency to adapt to different situations.
Scorpio, on the other hand, is a specific water sign that is ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation and rebirth. It is represented by Scorpio, inspired by Greek mythology that a scorpion stung and killed Orion.
Air and water are already quite unpleasant to begin with, because water deals with emotion, while air is all a matter of concern. Also, there are very different ways of managing changeable signs and fixed signs, fixed signs embody a kind of “workhorse” mentality and changeable signs embody the power of the “editor”.
As an astrologer and writer Astrology SOS Imani Quinn says mbg Scorpio is also quite deep, while Gemini likes to keep things light. “Geminis tend to look positive out of the situation, and they want to stay away from shadow work, so pairing them with Scorpio is really challenging because Scorpio’s main goal is to be reborn, to find the truth – and they are portraits of the shadow that works.” He explains.
When you look at an astrological chart you can really see how Gemini and Scorpio are not “lined up” (literally). They sit next to others (the opposite sign of Scorpio is Taurus, which comes before Gemini, while Gemini is Sagittarius, which comes after Scorpio). Without going too far into the aspects of astrology, it is important to understand that these two signs are considered “quinconus” or “incoherent”.
As Quinn puts it, this basically means that there is not much flow between them in terms of how they relate to each other.
Of course, it’s important to remember that when it comes to astrology (aka Sinastri), you really need to consider the entire birth chart of both people, not just their Sun sign. That said, there is more to how these two signs work in the case of love and friendship and how they are the same and different.
