Ask An Astrologer: Incompatible Signs?

Sure, got it, no problem.

(This is a part of the “Astrology Of Love And Compatibility” series)

 

LT asks: “I’m a Gemini which would be a odd combination with a Scorpio seeing as we are both so different. But is not my fault he was the one who started to pursue me first and now I want to be in a relationship with him. How do I get him to that point?”

Dear LT:

It’s funny how so many people out there keep ignoring my advice to avoid humans. Really, they’re such shifty, treacherous creatures when it comes to matters of the heart. When will robots solve this problem for us? Technology, we await your response.

Okay, seriously: there’s a short answer and a long answer to your question. The long answer would be the better part of a personal reading (and if you or anyone else is looking for one of those, you know where to find me).

Although we should never go by Sun Sign alone when diagnosing a relationship, there’s something to be said for it in this case. Here we have all the intense drive of Scorpio, which wants what it wants when it wants it, and (quite frankly) seems to enjoy a bit of a challenge while doing so. You, without planning it, provided the challenge. You were there, you were attractive, and then you took the classic intellectual Gemini approach rather than aiming for something more visceral.

Oh, but now… you want that relationship. Second guessing oneself is a common pursuit among the Humans, and perhaps none are better at it than Gemini. And just to complicate things, you have a Mercury-Venus conjunction in Gemini, in the Fifth House: intellect and affection joined together in The House Of Romance. A Mercury-Venus conjunction can be fantastic for creativity, for making romantic gestures, and for thinking about Love (and being in Love with Love itself). Put that combination in the Fifth House, and you have the potential to write romance novels… or the capacity to write your life as if it were one, with all the plot twists and complications that any decent novel requires.

That sort of thing makes makes for great fiction, and sometimes for great romance, but is it stable? Is stability something you really want right now, or is it something you are hoping will come along in its own time once you’ve found “the right one”? Your Seventh House (committed relationships) is ruled by The Moon, and your Moon is in Aries. Aries loves impulses and challenges, but can get frustrated with the nuts and bolts details of a stable match. It’s like your heart wants a race car, but your head gets frustrated with all the tune-ups and oil changes that sort of thing requires.

If I was doing a longer reading for you, I’d point out that transiting Uranus will be conjunct your Moon (which rules your Seventh House) for the next couple of years, and that Jupiter will be entering your Seventh House in May, so you’re likely to have all kinds of romantic potential going on for yourself and someone around that time, and that the next two years in general should be pretty lively, romance-wise. The last time Jupiter was in that position was last November-December… when I’m guessing this situation with the Scorpio was reaching a peak.

Of course, in a longer reading I’d also be getting into all the astrological details as to why you and this Scorpio might not work out in the long run:  like, how his Uranus squares your Saturn, and how incredibly unstable that can be. Or how his Mercury squares your Uranus and Neptune, so that clear communication will always be a task for you two. Or how his Sun-Pluto conjunction is quincunx your Mercury and Venus, so no matter how appealing he may seem, you’ll always have a hard time being on the same page romantically. or… well, you get the picture.

If you want to capture a Gemini, tease their brain. If you want to capture a Scorpio, lay out some bait. Your Scorpio came after you because you looked like a tasty morsel, and was further drawn to the challenge when you didn’t respond as he wanted. Now that it seems he’s given up, you’re filled with questions… and Geminis love having something to think about and puzzle over.

So, since we’re talking about Sun Sign clichés here: if you want to catch a Scorpio… and since you are a Gemini, gifted in the ways of language… have you tried talking dirty to him? That might work.
